Glendon fails her values, her Church

Mary Ann Glendon's decision to reject Notre Dame's Laetare Medal for distinguished service to the Catholic community is more than disappointing for those of us who have admired her academic work and service as a Catholic lay leader.

<quoted text>You mean like the one you hit me with first, saying that I don't value children after they are born? I was making a point, that you have me pegged wrong but you are doing it intentionally, simply because I am pro-life. You made your baseless accusation as if it was a well known fact, but it is very wrong and misinformed. I support children, both born and unborn, because I believe that is what is necessary to end child killing, also known as abortion. I refuse to deny that the unborn child is any less than a born child though, because its is not any less than a born child. You like to bring up that very young mother in brazil, who was forced by her parents to kill her two children by the slaughter that is abortion, and I understand why you do that. It is because you want to use her situation to keep child killing legal. You could care less about her situation. She was raped by ther step father, and then led to the slaughter house to kill the children growing with in her. You keep saying that you want to know how I could value her life, by not letting her kill her children, well its really quite simple. I know that her children were alive as she is. So had I been able to support her, by being close enough to her situation. I would have found a doctor how would have handled her pregnancy with the utmost concern for her life and the life of her babies, So she would not have killed her children. You say that would be impossible but that is simply not so. There was recently a case where a women was born with a uterus that was only half of its normal size and with careful doctor supervision and bed rest she gave birth safely, as do midgets on a regular basis. You were willing to kill her children for your willingness to see that child killing remains legal, and that is really deplorable.
No, what's deplorable is your kind being willing to try to force a raped 9 year old to bear the fruit of their molestation. Then again, you have relatives that would leave your kids with known child molesters, and YOU think the KKK has valid views regarding abortion and the Jewish people.

You ain't wrapped too tight and everyone knows it.

No, that little girl's mother made the decsion to abort the UNWANTED result of her daughters RAPE, AS WAS HER RIGHT. Clearly, she thought more of her child and her child's physical and mental health after being molested than you would.

Seriously, I REALLY wish your karma would come back on you. I'd like to see you suggest to your wife to implant the result of your BABY'S rape in HER womb.

You're a sick, sick man.

with the medical technology that we have today these children didnt need to die. Why is it so hard for you to see that their lives had value?


Clearly, they DIDN'T have value to the people that actually MATTERED. YOUR opinion means squat. Why is it so hard for you to understand that you are meaningless to those making these kinds of decisions?

Is it really that dark in your own life, that you can't see that God wanted these children to live.
Funny, I was under the impression that if G-d wanted them to live, they would live. Funny how your kind's story changes regarding your version of "faith" depending on what version you need to fit your agenda, huh?

Where was God in all of that? Your logic makes no sense. I do believe in God, and I don't think He had one thing to do with this whole situation. If He was going to make sure the fetuses lived, why didn't He make sure the whole situation didn't happen in the first place?
OK, yesterday you said the girl needed bed rest and physician supervision in order to carry the fetuses to term. Now you're saying the grandmother should have carried them FOR her. Dear God. You are really out there. Really.
No one lost any children or grandchildren. The fetuses did have to be terminated (it was the determination of the 6 PL doctors that they would not live, even if the child would have tried to carry them), in order for a little child to live. Unless you think God loves the fetuses more than the child that, according to you, He created as well? Sounds like that is what you're saying. Of course I am not in the least surprised.
Agreed.

One of the young single mothers whom I support is the mother of twins. We are very thankful that she chose life, inspite of a very tough set of circumstances. we continue to offer support for her and her children, and as unexpect reward, she has in turn asked my wife and I to be God parents. No these girls are born, and we will continue to support them, until the absolute end. Now please stop stalking that other person, before someone gets hurt.
Very good.

I am not overlooking the rape, That is a crime, and I want to see that the criminal gets punished, I don't want to see that the victims get punished, or the lives that were created as a result of this crime get the death penalty, which is something that you keep advocating for. These children are human beings, and you continue to advocate for their death by means of the bloody massacre that is abortion. Why is that? Don't you have faith that God is the author of life? God sen't us his Son to show that we all have crosses to bear and that we must go through some suffering to know the goodness he has to offer. God doesn't approve of the rape, and he certainly doesn't approve of the killing of the life in the womb. I know you will say that I am speaking for him, but then why is it that you will speak for him, when you say that he must approve of abortion, and if you say that he approved of abortion they by your twisted logic, you must then agree that he approved of the rape. We both know that is simply not the case, so then bad things happen, but it does not mean that they are of God. Abortion is the destruction of his creation, and nobody would except that as good, So why do you since you say you believe in God, and why do you follow with that crowd that insist that God does not exist?

The pro-aborts are not the pro-choicers that they claim to be. They really like to impose their will on the lives of others, especially the innocent unborn children. They believe it is okay to slaughter them, because they are unable to defend themselves leaving the unborn child with out a choice and dead and dismembered in a garbage can.

Actually - lets be accurate here dear - accurate and VERY clear: I wouldn't care if YOU were left dead and dismembered in a garbage can. So please stop lying and putting words in the mouths of others.

I dont EVER want to see a CHILD left that way.

And fortunately, children are NOT left dead and dismembered in garbage cans as a result of legal medical procedures such as abortion. Though unwanted babies sadly ARE often left for dead by the girls and women whom your kind would deny safe access to medical care and complete information and complete educations and choices to.

Yup.

Thanks to HIM personally, babies are drowned in toilets or thrown in dumpsters to die, because HE makes girls feel GUILTY about sex, and does not inform them about contraception, so when they have it and are ignorant about BC, and get pregnant, they flip out and are ASHAMED.

There's no question in my mind that Mary Ann Glendon is a holier than thou person, who totally fails to understand, and I mean understand, what President Obama stands for. His agenda of doing so much good for so many people is unfortunately lost and not understood by the likes of this lady. I truly hope our Good Lord will have greater understanding of her attitude than she has of our inspirational leader. I'm gratified that Notre Dame had the courage and strength to resist the "Oxbow" attitude of those like Glendon.

You're right, the "good" of aborting millions of children is totally lost on many of us.

O'Brien's letter leaves me wondering: was he born like this or did he go to school to learn to utter such stupidity? Oh, oh, I see it now. He is a Notre Dame alumnus. That explains his derangement!

We have the most friendly to abortion -- and infanticide -- president ever who is actively working to remove all limits to abortion, a "Catholic" university attempting to use Ms. Glendon to justify giving Obama a forum, and this genius O'Brien thinks that she erred in declining the Notre Dame "honor"?

I bet he graduated from Notre Dame summa cum laude.

Agreed. As far as I'M concerned, the rcc and its so-called "universities" are a few centuries behind. I'm just glad I dumped catholicism and its toxic doctrines before they poisoned my life entirely. Freedom FROM catholicism is much better for me than the slavery OF it.
