In Canada, we have a newspaper, the Globe and Mail, that pretends to speak for all Canadians. As newspapers go, it probably is up there. But, remember that it is a newspaper, and print mainstream media is dying a natural death, or so we can hope. When I saw one particular article recently, I realised why many Canadians call it the Grope and Flail.
The Globe, with its partners in this endeavour, is seeking nominations for 25 Transformational Canadians. They are defining them as:
...25 living citizens who have made a difference by immeasurably improving the lives of others. Readers were invited to nominate Canadians who fit this description. Over several weeks, a panel of six judges will select 25 Transformational Canadians from among the nominees.One of the nominees is Dr. Henry Morgentaler, the 87 year old abortionist and figurehead of the death to the unborn crowd. Dr. M. is alleged to have improved the lives of others. They say he fought tirelessly to decriminalize abortion, like it's a good thing. Since the unborn don't have a say, and since those thousands of women who have lost their dignity by disposing of their unborn children are too traumatized to speak out, or have consumed the Kool Aid, there is a distinct possibility that Dr. Morgentaler will be left standing at the end of the process.
We can remain hopeful that there will be a hue and cry about this nomination, though the award he is nominated for is meaningless, and I would not have been aware of it had not an American Internet friend brought it to my attention. There are a few real transformers in the list of nominees though such as Craig and Marc Keilburger of Me to We, and so we might also hold out hope that this meaningless award will at least be given to people who have done good with the gifts they have been given.
The Globe wrote him up the other day like he was a conquering hero, not the mass murderer and conspirator in the mass murder of our unborn children and grandchildren that he is. Yes, he himself is a holocaust survivor, though he survived to champion a holocaust that makes the one he survived pale by comparison.
Here is the introduction to the laudatory article:
In Canada, a woman can have an abortion without fear of prosecution or imprisonment – for the simple reason that there is no abortion law. For more than 20 years, that state of affairs has set us apart from the rest of the developed world. Canadian women enjoy the right to safe and legal abortions largely because Henry Morgentaler fought a long battle on their behalf.Yes, Canada has no laws against abortion, and so it is a free for all, where we the taxpayer get to pay for this "procedure". Dr. Morgentaler is responsible in some way for this. It was the case against him that in 1984 was used by the Supreme Court of Canada to strike down protection for the unborn. So, Canadian women ENJOY the right to safe and legal government funded abortions, while their unborn children do not enjoy anything here on earth, and do not have similar rights, or any rights for that matter.
We, of course, hope that the aborted unborn enjoy the Beatific Vision, and that their parents, and those involved in this heinous business, and those who stand by idly will be drawn to conversion of hearts and minds, and one day enjoy it too.
Warning to our American friends. Don't think for a moment that Obama Care will not produce similar results. In fact, this video might give you pause, as to how soon federally funded abortion will be happening in your land of the free and home of the brave, but not of the unborn.
So, what are we to do? Here in Canada, we can ignore the meaningless award should Dr. Morgentaler be one of its recipients, and cluck our way to indignation. Really, this potential award pales when compared to him having received already the Order of Canada, Canada's highest civilian honour in 2008. A few Canadians displayed outrage at the OofC award for Dr. M., and another 10 previous recipients of the award returned their OofC's in protest.
Here is my greatest concern as voiced by Mother Theresa many years ago:
Mother Teresa said, "What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"
This dear reader is a spiritual battle, more than it is a physical battle, and as long as we have breath, we must pray for the unborn, and for those involved in the destruction of their lives, for it not only destroys their lives, but the lives of us all.
Dear Lord, we trust in Your Love for all of your children, including the unborn and their parents, and those who would do them harm, or stand idly by while harm is done. We beg of you to cause this travesty to Your Sacred Heart to be brought to an end, and that we would all seek Your Face, and Your Mercy.
