Once upon a time, they sacrificed their children to Baal or to Moloch (two of the many names of the devil, their master). Today nothing has changed, except that they call it “access to reproductive health services” and “control over their sexual and reproductive rights”. The master is the same!
Once upon a time, they could claim ignorance. Today, after Christ, they cannot. They will not be forgiven, unless they turn to a life of repentance!
The European Parliament has adopted a resolution which recognizes abortion as a fundamental right and also as a part of reproductive rights despite the fact that this issue remains within the framework of national policy of the EU nations’ governments. The so-called “Tarabela Report” called after the Belgian politician Marc Tarabela, has gone beyond the equality between women and men discussion and has become a tool of the radical change of the status of abortion promoting access to it as a fundamental human right, reports the Rosprav.ru website.
On the whole the situation is moving towards intensification of the pro-abortion rhetoric in the EU countries and pressure on the countries that defend the life of their citizens before birth. Section 45 of “the Tarabela Report” reads: “…maintains that women must have control over their sexual and reproductive rights… have access to contraception and abortion…” The resolution was adopted at the session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg by a vote of 441 to 205 with 52 abstaining. The measure was fully supported by Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (the Socialists and Democrats EP Group). Since the establishment of the European Parliament in 1953 the group has existed under various names and until the elections of 1999 it had had the majority of representatives in the Parliament. It is currently the second largest party by membership in EP.
The Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe has described the report as “contradictory” as it considers abortion as a fundamental human right and it (the report) also contradicts the Human Rights Charter of the European Union. The first article of the Charter reads, “Human dignity is inviolable. It must be respected and protected.” The second article states, “Each person has a right to life.” This Charter is a document that secures several basic rights. The formulation of this document was coordinated at ministerial level and included in the draft constitution for Europe. “The Tarabela Report” has provoked a protest among the Christian community of EU and a campaign with signatures collection against it has been launched. 170,000 people have already signed the petition against the report.
On Thursday the European Parliament is likely to adopt another pro-abortion document: “The Panzeri Report”, named after its author, Pier Antonio Panzeri. Article 15 of this document recognizes abortion “as a means of saving of women’s lives.” The EU Bureaucratic term, “access to reproductive health services,” means promotion of abortions, birth control, and corruption of minors.
O most merciful, all gracious and compassionate Lord Jesus Christ our Savior, Son of God: we entreat Thee, most gracious Master: look with compassion upon Thy children who have been condemned to death by the unjust judgment of men. And as Thou hast promised to bestow the heavenly kingdom on them born of water and the Spirit, and who in blamelessness of life have been translated unto Thee; and Who said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven”—we humbly pray, according to Thy unfailing promise: Grant the inheritance of Thy kingdom to the multitude of spotless infants who have been cruelly murdered in the abortuaries of this land; for Thou art the resurrection and the life and the repose of all Thy servants and of these innocents, O Christ our God.
Turn the hearts of those who seek to destroy Thy little ones. We beseech Thee to pour forth Thy healing grace upon them, that they may be convicted in their hearts and turn from their evil ways. Remember all of them that kill our children as on the altars of Moloch, and render not unto them according to their deeds, but according to Thy great mercy convert them—the unbelieving to true faith and piety, and the believing that they may turn from evil and do good.
O Holy Master, Almighty Father and pre-eternal God, Who alone made and directs all things; Who rises up quickly against the evil of the impious ones; Who, by providence, teaches Thy people preservation of justice and the obliteration of evil on earth; Who condescends to raise up warriors for the protection of the people of God: we entreat Thee with compunction, that as Thou didst give David power to defeat Goliath, and as Thou didst condescend through Judas Maccabeus, to seize victory from the arrogant pagans who would not call on Thy Name; so too, grant protection to us, Thy servants against the enemies rising against us as we go forth to do spiritual battle against the evil one and those who do his will rather than Thine.
For Thou art a merciful God, and lovest mankind, and unto Thee do we ascribe glory, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
