As Gender Gap Narrows in Election, Planned Parenthood to the Rescue? (4872)

The abortion provider’s Action Fund is spending an estimated $12 million to re-elect President Obama, whose administration continues to block state efforts to defund the abortion group.

WASHINGTON — Jobs, the national debt and securing social entitlements still dominate the 2012 campaign season, but when the two presidential candidates squared off in their second high-stakes debate, the president mentioned Planned Parenthood four times, lambasting his opponent for pledging to defund the abortion provider in the United States.

As a tight presidential race nears the finish line, the president has campaigned with Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Cecile Richards, and his administration backed two legal challenges that recently blocked state laws defunding the organization in Arizona and Indiana.

During an Oct. 24  appearance on The Tonight Show, the president told host...READ MORE

BEIJING — An American couple living in China for 15 years says their success in rescuing more than 1,000 medically fragile orphans is due to totally relying on God, especially during trying times.

“You really have to have an absolute dependence on God that the money’s gonna show up when you need it and that you’re going to stay out of trouble,” Brent Johnson of the organization China Little Flower said Oct. 17.

Founded in 1998, China Little Flower is the parent organization of Brent and Serena Johnson’s “apostolic hobby,” Little Flower Projects, a charity that seeks to reach out to the most vulnerable of China’s population by providing medical care to abandoned orphans and children.

Adoration Chapel to Open Near Abortion Facility in Oklahoma (2831)

Catholic pro-life advocates hope to end abortion through prayer.

10/26/2012 Comment

WARR ACRES, Okla. — Catholic pro-life advocates in Oklahoma plan to open a perpetual Eucharistic adoration chapel and counseling offices next to an abortion business in hopes of serving women in need and ending abortion through prayer.

“We are 20 feet from the abortionist,” Father M. Price Oswalt, a leader of the project, said Oct. 25. “We’re going to have some signs in our windows that say: ‘Pregnant? Need help? Come here.’ That will draw people in.”

Father Price hopes the adoration chapel will “end abortion through prayerful reflection and prayerful means.”

“It’s the ultimate good right next to the ultimate evil,” he said. “Good will triumph.”

Presidential Campaigns Target Catholic Voters (4365)

Their votes could prove decisive in key battleground states.

10/25/2012 Comments (29)

WASHINGTON — How Catholics will vote has become a central preoccupation of both Democrats and Republicans in the final days of the 2012 presidential election.

Recent polls indicate Catholics are evenly split on the presidential choice between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, and they make up between a fifth and a quarter of the electorate in several crucial “swing” states, such as Iowa, Ohio and Indiana, where polling indicates the vote will be close.

Consequently, both parties have mobilized major initiatives to get sympathetic Catholics out to the voting booth Nov. 6, believing these votes could prove decisive as the neck-and-neck presidential race heads into its final...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Today, the Pope’s ex-butler was taken to prison for stealing his boss’ private documents and leaking them to the press in the so-called “Vatileaks” scandal.

“The sentence in the trial of Paolo Gabriele, which has now become final, puts a full stop to the end of a sad affair which has had very painful consequences,” read an Oct. 25 announcement from the Vatican’s Secretariat of State.

Gabriele was sentenced Oct. 6 and ordered incarcerated in the Vatican Prison to begin his 18-month sentence.

The Vatican communiqué declared the sentence “lenient and just.”

“A personal offense was done to the Holy Father” and “the right to privacy of the many people who … addressed...READ MORE
