Abortion is murder and contraceptives salt the womb, rendering it hostile to implantation of the embryo. Because of this, these kinds of contraceptive pills or IUD’s are blatant abortifacients. Some contraceptives target either the ovaries or lining of the uterus. Most Oral Contraceptives are Class I Carcinogens.
Makes you wonder why women disobey the Catholic Church and take them. Seems they trust their doctors more, than they trust the Catholic Church.
All I can do is pray for them. My mom was for them. I rebelled from her disobedience. That was a good thing.
The Delegation of the Holy See has carefully reviewed the Report on Access to Medicines. While the Special Rapporteur maintains that “Full realization of access to medicines requires the fulfillment of key elements of availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality,” my Delegation found that the Report gave insufficient attention to certain factors cited as “key elements” by the Special Rapporteur.
With regard to accessibility, my Delegation believes that a comprehensive analysis of this crucial topic must reach beyond legal frameworks to include an examination of the social and political realities that deprive millions of people from enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health because of the obstacles that they place on access to medicines.
Article 25 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights clearly adopted such a comprehensive perspective when it declared: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.”
Thus the Holy See Delegation found that the Report paid insufficient attention to basic needs of individuals and families, at all stages of the life cycle from conception to natural death. Such challenges often block access to medicines as much as, if not more than, the various legal factors that occupied the main focus of the Report. Effective reversal of such obstacles requires an integral human development approach that promotes just legal frameworks as well as international solidarity, not only among States, but also among and between all peoples. Thus the Holy See noted, with alarm, “the difficulties millions of people face as they seek to obtain minimal subsistence and the medicines they need to cure themselves” and called for “establishing true distributive justice which guarantees everyone adequate care on the basis of objective needs.”1
The Report made frequent references to the obligation of States to set the conditions for access to medicine. While governmental fulfillment of such responsibility is a clear prerequisite, the strong engagement of non-governmental and religious organizations in providing both medicines and a wide range of treatment and preventive measures to ensure the full enjoyment of the right to health also should have been acknowledged. From its contacts down to the grass-root level with 5,305 hospitals and 18,179 clinics2 inspired and organized under Catholic Church auspices throughout the world, the Holy See is well aware that these institutions serve the poorest sectors of society, many of whom live in rural and isolated areas or in conflict zones, where governmental health systems often do not reach. This fact has been confirmed by professional mapping exercises, with support and collaboration of the World Health Organization, which reported that “between 30 and 70 per cent of the health infrastructure in Africa is currently owned by faith-based organizations.”3
Mr. President, optimal facilitation of access to medicine is a complex endeavor and deserves comprehensive analysis and acknowledgement of all factors contributing to its promotion, rather than a more restricted analysis of legal, economic, and political frameworks.
Thank you, Mr. President.

NEW YORK – Is Obama helping advance a grand plan by Turkey, with the support of Germany, to restore the Ottoman Empire, the Islamic caliphate that controlled much of southeast Europe, Western Asia and North Africa for more than six centuries?
That is a question posed by historian Robert E. Kaplan in an article titled “The U.S. Helps Reconstruct the Ottoman Empire,” published this week by the international policy council and think tank Gatestone Institute.
“In September 2012, WND also broke the story that the slain U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight the Syria regime, according to Egyptian security forces.
In December 2012, WND reported top level al-Qaida operatives are functioning with impunity in Libya under a NATO-established provisional government.
In February 2013, WND reported that the U.S. special mission in Benghazi was used to coordinate Arab arms shipments and other aid to rebels in Libya who are known to be saturated by al-Qaida and other Islamic terrorist groups.
On May 14, 2013, WND reported the attack that killed Stevens and three other Americans was an al-Qaida revenge killing that took place one day after al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri called for retaliation for a U.S. drone strike that killed a top Libyan al-Qaida leader.
On Jan. 3, 2013, WND reported that the Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated the Obama White House, with several American Muslim leaders who work with the Obama administration identified as Muslim Brotherhood operatives who have significant influence on U.S. policy.
On Feb. 10, 2013, WND reported President Obama’s nominee to head the CIA, John Brennan, converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia.

Turkish leaders do make the connection between the conflicts in the Bosnia, the “Arab Spring” and the Ottoman Empire. Harold Rhode, an American expert on Turkey, has reported:
[President of Turkey] Erdogan’s recent  electoral victory speech puts his true intentions regarding Turkey’s foreign policy goals in perspective. He said that this victory is as important in Ankara as it is in the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sarajevo, under Ottoman times, an important Ottoman city; that his party’s victory was as important in a large Turkish city Izmir, on the Western Anatolian coast, as it is in Damascus, and as important in Istanbul as it is in Jerusalem….
In saying that this victory is as important in all of these former Ottoman cities, Erdogan apparently sees himself as trying to reclaim Turkey’s full Ottoman past.

These kid’s dads are becoming addicted en masse, to Heroin. However, there is one place in Afghanistan that is trying to help them stop. It’s too bad that the U.S. Tax Payer, unbeknownst to them, is paying for this Drug Operation. It brings shame onto US Citizens, to harm another country’s families.
Please pray for Afghanistan, and for the conversions of the Gov’t. of the U.S.A., and NATO to stop these evils towards other countries just, for sheer profit.
If you think I’m going to shut-up about it, you’ve got another thing coming!
I’m a mom: and as such, I will protect the weak against the stronger bully, every time.
TEARS IN A FLASK
Simple non-fictional Truth, You attract my heart!
Only You, can cause a Tear to Drop,
from a heart drowning
in deep felt emotions, for Your Son.
To see these Truths in Print,
or come Alive in the Lives of Those we meet,
stirs a Walled-Up Heart to crack
in the Bombardments of Love.
To witness Tears on the Faces of Those — You Love,
is to witness the Bombardments of Love,
or the Lack Thereof.
Do You have a Count of Each Tear, Lord?
Do you keep our Tears in a Flask?
Are they Earthly Defeats turned to Victory,
when we reach Your Home at Last?
Does your Moma and You, mingle Yours with Mine?
Can I, May I, Will I,
ever See the Eyes that looked,
Heaven and Earthward, saying,
“Father, Forgive Them,
for they Know Not, what they are doing.”
my very Soggy Nothingness,
and in turn do Teach Me this:
…that you Watch and Wait the Moment
to catch our Last Tears in a Flask,
to Crown Us with Living Diamonds,
from a Good Cry shared with You!

and I was astounded to find God answered my questions.
