‘Which one was conceived in Rape?’: the viral image that deflated pro-abortion rhetoric | LifeSiteNews.com.

“No one understands the flaw in the rape-abortion argument better than Rebecca Kiessling, who at 18 learned that she was conceived in a brutal rape by a serial rapist who held her mother at knife-point.

“Please understand that whenever you identify yourself as being ‘pro-choice,’ or whenever you make that exception for rape,” she writes in her testimony, “what that really translates into is you being able to stand before me, look me in the eye, and say to me, ‘I think your mother should have been able to abort you.’””

Powerful words.

Review: FOR GREATER GLORY (2012)

Posted on Updated on

I had the privilege of attending the midnight premiere of the NewLand Films production of “For Greater Glory:, a story about the Cristeros in 1917 and their uprising against the federal government in response to the declarations made against the Catholic Church. (Sound familiar yet?)

With a stellar cast of big names and new faces, the story begins with the reading of the declaration by El Presidente Calles, played by Reubén Blades: “The Mexican government mandates that all foreign-born clergy be sent back to their countries, for Mexico will not listen to their lies about our government. Any remaining clergy who speak out against the government will not be tolerated.” The clergy are brought forward in droves and “dealt with accordingly”, you might say, and the audience explores with each character what it would mean to find courage and stand up for your beliefs. A snippet of advice given to the young boy sums up the entire Cristero movement in one line: “Who are you, if you do not stand up for what you believe in?”

Who are we indeed.

Follow the stories of the Cristeros and of little José Sánchez del Río as they learn what it means to stand up for religious freedom to the point of …. well, you’ll have to watch the movie.
