DEFEAT AT THE HANDS OF OUR FRIENDS

The sad news was reported July 10 that the Michigan Citizens for Life petition drive had fallen short of the 317,000 signatures needed to put a totally pro-life proposed state constitutional amendment on the November ballot. What was so disheartening about this news, and what has been disappointing over the past many months has been the repeated denunciation of the effort by Michigan Right to Life, the Michigan Catholic Conference and others. It boggles my mind as I try to understand how any pro-life organization, most especially Catholic Bishops, would do anything to oppose an effort to protect each preborn child from his beginning as a person! PERSONHOOD was the single goal of this simple proposal. Yet pro-life and Catholic opposition made the struggle so hard, and clearly caused the lack of signatures. Of that there is no doubt.
So now what? Do we buy into the politically correct line that “timing is all wrong?” NO! But I wonder ,,, could it be that there really are pro-life leaders who do not want to see every single abortion outlawed, whether that abortion occurs in an in vitro fertilization clinic, because of a birth control pill or by using a surgical intervention? If the goal of the pro-life movement is PERSONHOOD ? total protection for all innocent children prior to birth ? then something terribly evil happened in Michigan. Let us pray it never happens again.
From Steve Lefemine, CCL director (March 16, 2009):
Mrs. Judie Brown is president of American Life League. She is a long-time, principled, pro-personhood,
sincere pro-lifer. Unfortunately she is also a devout follower of the false religion of Rome, and has been
unable to publicly admit the obvious, painful, hard truth which the evidence supports, in light of the
opposition of the Catholic Bishops to "personhood" in Michigan, Georgia, Montana, and Colorado, i.e.,
the Roman Catholic hierarchy is NOT pro-life !
In other words, the petition drive to put a pro-personhood state constitutional amendment on the ballot in Michigan in 2006 was defeated with the opposition of the Michigan chapter of National Right to Life (just as the director of the South Carolina chapter of National Right to Life (SC Citizens for Life) tried to kill the SC Personhood bill several years ago by approaching the SC Legislator sponsoring the bill, in a failed attempt to get him to stop promoting his bill), and with the opposition of the Michigan bishop(s) [ Michigan Catholic Conference].
The evidence is there for all with "eyes to see" - the Roman Catholic hierarchy (Bishops and above) and National Right to Life [ originally formed by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in 1968 ], are opposed to the numerous ongoing efforts to establish personhood for the unborn, and thereby END, not just regulate abortion. For Rome, the primary goal is ecumenism, not protecting the unborn, and the "pro-life movement" in America has been a fruitful opportunityfor Rome's centuries-old agenda (since the 1500's) to counter the effects of the Reformation, and undermine the Bible-believing, evangelical churches and Christians with the heresies of Romanism.
