For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama on Infants Born Alive: Let 'em Die

Jill Stanek is a controversial figure. Her detractors (and they are legion) say she's a loon, that Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, fired her as a labor and delivery nurse on grounds of incompetence.

And then there's her side, the one everybody else believes: that Stanek was fired by Christ Hospital because after she discovered they were leaving unwanted newborn babies to starve to death in a dark closet with the dirty linens, she went public with it. Stanek went on to testify before the Illinois Senate, where then-State Senator Obama killed the state version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

This video is simply one of the most stirring productions I've ever seen. Watch it and decide for yourself who's the loon, and who's doing God's work. Don't worry; it's not graphic. Pardon the odd appearing leader and trailer.

More on Jill Stanek: Her home on the Web, syndicated column, and YouTube channel.

Jill's termination by, if you'll excuse my momentary dyslexia, Antichrist Hospital, is a win for the Pro-Life movement and the babies of the world in her greater capacity as a public figure.
