Last night at Morgetaler’s abortuary at 65 Bank Street, otherwise appropriately named as ‘Ground Zero’ by pro-life activists, the 40 Days for Life Campaign officially kicked off in Ottawa.  Some 300 faithful attended Mass at St. Pat’s and then approx. half of this number walked by candlelight to Ground Zero to hear some words and music of encouragement from organizers.  The campaign is part of a much larger effort across North America and EuropeIn Canada, we have 9 cities participating in this particular campaign – an almost two-fold increase from the last campaign. This campaign will be more modest in scope from previous campaigns with participants asked to cover a 12 hour period from 7AM-7PM every day for the next 40 days.  Socon or Bust readers are encouraged to sign up and engage in the spiritual war.

One of the speakers tonight was “Doris”, the head sidewalk counsellor who counsels women against abortion as they enter the abortuary.  She’s part of an organization called “Helper’s of God’s Precious Infants’.  In her talk, she gave a very tragic statistic.  Abortions are performed Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and occasionally on Saturdays at Morgentaler’s killing centre.

9 abortions in the morning.

9 abortions in the afternoon.

I’m not sure why this had a profound effect on me.  Maybe it was because it was such a definite number, apportioned during  specific parts of the day.  Maybe it was the exactness of it all.  Before we have lunch today, 9 babies will have been targeted and terminated at 65 Bank Street.  Three times a week.  Over 50 babies/week.  In Ottawa. Where you live.

Dismembered and then shipped off for incineration…or some other form of Godless disposal.

So, can you tell me why exactly you can’t spend one hour in prayer where they are murdered?


Is it really that much to ask? Is it?

H/T Big Blue Wave for the pics.

    Re: Poster for Life Chain 2010

    Dear John,

    I have been trying to reach you but I haven’t been successful in finding an email address. I hope this gets to you.

    I created a poster for this year’s Life Chain on October 3. In it is a photo that I copied from http://www.catholic-legate.com. I believe the photo belongs to you. The file name is “life_chain1.jpg” and it shows a row of adults holding “Abortion Kills Children” signs. It was taken at the 2007 Life Chain in Nepean at Meadowlands Drive.

    Our local pro-life group hopes to use the poster to invite more people in our community to this year’s Life Chain in Edmonton. We believe that the images in the poster will be a big help in encouraging them to come.

    I don’t want to infringe on anyone’s copyrights, so I’m asking your permission to use the photo. I could email a copy of the poster to you if I had your email address. I hope you will get back to me quickly.

    By the way, I am amazed at the good work you are doing. You are a bright light in the Culture of Life.

    Thank you,


  2. I found the pic.

    Go ahead, Chris. Spread the picture far and wide. Raise money from it for the pro-life cause, if you want.

    Do whatever you have to do to promote the culture of life with it.

    God Speed.


  3. The life side wants to promote their values of life and love to the culture.

    The only values the liberal death side imposes on the baby come in the form of a knife, a vacuum or scalding chemicals.

    The values of death and violence to get what they want are thus promoted and imposed on our society by court enforcement, government decree, and by the education establishments who program the students how to think.

    The popular media ought to go into the abortion clinics and show the people the pictures of the dead babies who are the victims of this culture war.

    Why do you suppose they don’t ?

    The “Religion” of Politically Correct Relativism and Darwinian Humanism imposed by decree by government, law, education and the popular media in our culture has made Nazi’s of us all. After World War Two the justices of The War Crimes Tribunal indicted ten NAZI leaders for encouraging and compelling abortions which was considered by them a crime against humanity.

    The ones who don’t agree with this agenda get suspended from their employment , get fined or go to jail. Here I am talking about fine traditional teachers like Dr.Chris Kempling and Dr. Howard . We have become a society with no morality or justice.

    Humanism and Communism are both Godless social theories. That is why Humanist Canada gets along so well with Communist China and our industrialists are moving their companies there.

    That is why criminals ,and those they employ get rich at the expense of their victims of crime and the victims suffer over and over again. The citizens pay the salaries and pensions of the judiciary, crown prosecutors and court workers.

    The judiciary make arbitrary laws based on Humanism instead of the sanctity of human life based on The Ten Commandments . Social Darwinism with its survival of the fittest is the logic of the day.

    We murder our babies by the millions for so-called convenience and call it abortion.

    Unless the voting citizens of Canada decide to do something about our culture and future nothing will change. God Bless those Culture Warriors who are trying to put and end to this culture of death.
