Gosnell medical assistant admits cutting the spines of 10 babies born alive | LifeSiteNews.com.

This really needs no words.

“The grand jury report includes the account of another of Gosnell’s employees, Kareema Cross, describing the moment of Baby A’s birth:

After the baby was expelled, Cross noticed that he was breathing, though not for long. After about 10 to 20 seconds, while the mother was asleep, “the doctor just slit the neck,” said Cross. Gosnell put the boy’s body in a shoebox. Cross described the baby as so big that his feet and arms hung out over the sides of the container. Cross said that she saw the baby move after his neck was cut, and after the doctor placed it in the shoebox. Gosnell told her, “it’s the baby’s reflexes. It’s not really moving.”

A neonatologist who testified on behalf of the grand jury said that Gosnell’s explanation for the baby’s movements was false, and that in all likelihood Gosnell failed immediately to kill the baby, and that his “few moments of life were spent in excruciating pain.”

The neonatologist also estimated the baby’s age as around 32 weeks gestation.”

May God forgive America for the transgressions of our country.

First Time Ever I Saw Your Face | GE ad.

Chills.  I have chills.

I wish this ad were still on the air!

The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were gifts you gave to the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was then at my command
My love

The first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last til the end of time
My love
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

Woman refuses treatment of cancer to save her unborn child, dies | LifeSiteNews.com.

May she rest in peace, eternal rest grant to her soul.

SIDE NOTE:

When a woman named Gianna Molla did the same thing, she became a saint in the Catholic Church….

The Catholic Church takes the role of the mother very seriously, especially when the child is still in the womb, and the most vulnerable it will ever be …. and values those who uphold it in even the most dire of circumstances.  It must be our prayer that all mothers value their roles and strive to raise children who know, love, and fear God in all they do.

Premature baby survives after doctors advised abortion – Telegraph

Premature baby survives after doctors advised abortion – Telegraph.

 

 

“Doctors had advised Miss Fisher to abort Jacob after his twin sister, Emie, died when she was born at 21 weeks and six days due to an infection.

But Jacob followed eight days later, twelve hours before doctors would have demanded a final decision from the family on whether to terminate the pregnancy.

The legal upper limit for abortion is 24 weeks, but Jacob is one of a growing list of babies who survived despite being born before the threshold.”

 

The miracle of childbirth prevails over an advised abortion…. yet again.

 

Prayer for expectant mothers and the health of their children in utero

O Great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior, and devoted Child of the Mother of God: enkindle within my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity which glowed in your heart and made you an angelof love. O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine master, without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked men, you have been raised up by God as the Patron and Protector of expectant mothers. Preserve me from danger and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, and shield the child which I now carry, that it may see the light of day and receive the lustral waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
