Catholic Bishops in Latin America Deceived into Signing Pro-Abortion Statement

Vatican warning on "Catholic" pro-abortion campaign

This one should make your blood boil. It's also an alarming example that the battle for life has moved to a global battlefield. As pro-life individuals, we need to be attentive to what is happening around the world, because if the battle is lost outside our borders, there will be no resisting. Already our domestic courts are using International law as precedent for domestic court rulings--something that is unconstitutional, but what do they care.

This from Catholic World News:
Vatican, Sep. 02 (CNA/ - The Vatican Secretary of State has asked the bishops’ conferences of Latin America to be on the alert against a campaign by the pro-abortion group “Catholics for a Free Choice” (CFFC) to gather signatures from religious leaders in an attempt to support the concept of “reproductive health”-- a euphemism for abortion-- at the upcoming United Nations summit.

From September 14-16 the Millennium +5 summit will be held in New York. During the meeting, heads of state will discuss the proposals and goals set at the Millennium Summit of 2000.

CFFC is taking advantage of the opportunity to gather as many signatures as possible for a statement that endorses the concept of “reproductive health,” as it is described the documents issued after the Cairo population summit and the Beijing summit on Women. At these two summits, “reproductive health” was used to signify legal abortion; the Holy See and delegations from many other countries strongly rejected the concept.
That is what pro-abortion advocates stand on--lies and deception. Otherwise, everyone knows that if the truth about abortion, conception, and the formation of life came out and was widely known, abortions would go down!

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
