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

Dominican Republic Amends Constitution To Ban Abortion --UN Officials Complain

As of last week, Article 30 of the Constitution of the Dominican Republic states "the right to life is inviolable from conception until death," thereby making this Central American country more civilized than our own, IMHO.  Or at least in that regard.  

The heads of a couple of UN agencies had been actively campaigning against such revisions, citing a regression in the advancement of women's rights, in spite of the official stance of neutrality by the UN on abortion.  Read the full story in LifeSiteNews.

Apparently some officials at the UN are more interested in promoting the killing of the unborn to advance the rights of women, instead of raising awareness of the mass subjugation and genital mutilation of women in most Muslim-led countries.  Or perhaps they know they can beat up on little Catholic countries with little or no consequence.

Thanks for pointing out this story, wouldn't likely have seen it otherwise.
