On March 17, I joined a group of twelve young men for what would be an adventure of epic proportions. All the participants were from our campus outreach, Tradition, Family Property Student Action, that brings the burning issues of the day to the university. Our goal this time was not to descend into academia but to ascend Mount Marcy, the highest peak in the Adirondack mountain range in New York. The special intention of the trek was to make reparation for the appalling late-term abortion law approved by Governor Cuomo on January 22. The hardships we endured on the 15-mile hike were akin to a pilgrimage, carried out as an act of reparation on behalf of our nation for the sin of abortion.

Our group hit the trail at 5:15 a. m. to give us enough time to reach the summit and return before sundown. It was still dark, so we used headlamps to light our way. The air was calm and steady snow was falling, forming a fresh layer of powder over the ice-chocked path and muffling our footsteps. In the darkness of those early morning hours, alone and far away from the noise and agitation of modern society, we suddenly found ourselves immersed in the wondrous stillness and serenity of God’s creation.

We quickly made our way through the woods and reached the base of the mountain by sunrise. The overcast sky parted somewhat to reveal a breathtaking view of the towering snow-capped peaks shrouded in mist. Placing our enterprise under the protection of Saint Michael the Archangel and Saint Patrick, we began the long climb.

Defending the Unborn Amidst a Crisis of Faith

Step-by-step, we navigated the steep twists and turns, taking care not to accidentally fall into “tree wells,” those hollows around the base of snow-covered trees that can swallow up hikers. The panorama opened into ever more majestic scenes. Everywhere we looked, the natural beauty of the snow-frosted conifers, frozen creeks, and an endless variety of dazzling ice crystals reminded us of God. When the going became tough, we sang hymns and frequently invoked Our Lady and the saints. This raised spirits and gave us renewed strength to continue.

As the slope grew steeper and the snow deeper, we faced new challenges to our endurance. The temperature steadily fell, and the wind picked up speed. Exhaustion and cramps set in. The hardest part of the ascent would be leaving the tree line. Thus, we had to resist the temptation to give up.

The weather worsened during the final push to the summit. Upon leaving the tree line, we experienced gale-force winds of 50 miles per hour with a -20 degrees Fahrenheit windchill temperature. Several of us were knocked off our feet. Dense sheets of whirling snow obscured our pathway and made it difficult to see. Progress was agonizingly slow, but with constant teamwork, and a prayer on our lips, we pushed resolutely ahead.

Finally, atop Mount Marcy, we unfurled our banner battling the fierce wind. It read: “From New York’s highest peak, we say: ‘Shame on Gov. Cuomo for legalizing infanticide.’ May God receive our act of reparation.” Despite our exhaustion, we were overcome by a feeling of great accomplishment. We had conquered nature’s fury and reached the top of New York State’s highest peak.

We did not stay for long because of the weather. The wind had blown snow over our tracks, so we need to exercise great care to discern the right way and avoid getting lost. What a relief it was when we found our trail again and returned to the safety of the tree line!

Exhausted, but exhilarated, we congratulated each other and gave thanks to Our Lady for making it to the top. Though we still had to walk another seven miles to get back to the base camp, we had the consolation of knowing that the hardest part was now behind us.

Despite the hardships, hiking through the marvelous winter scenery of the Adirondacks was a soul-expanding experience that filled us with a spirit of adventure and comradeship. At this time of profound crisis, may God receive our humble prayers and sufferings as we yearn for the true conversion of our beloved nation.

U.S Senator Baby Killers

U.S. Senator Baby Killers

© February 26, 2019

Yesterday (2/25/19) 53 Senators voted in favor of Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311) and 44 Senators essentially VOTED AGAINST saving the lives of botched abortion live-birth babies. And three Senators didn’t vote.

Killing babies before they are born is bad enough, but 44 freaking Dem Senators voted to perpetrate the death of a baby born alive when the child’s already egregious abortion failed.

WHY?

Senator Baby-Killer-in-chief Schumer felt protecting human threatened the Baby-Killer industry and by-Satan the Dems are going to protect abortionists at any cost to a human life that escaped the torture of a murderous abortion and lived.

If you live in a State with a Senator Baby-killer coming up for election in 2020, YOU need to decide you desire to align with live-birth baby-killing infanticide or to protect the basic human life from murder. HERE IS A LIST OF SENATOR BABY-KILLERS enabling YOU the voter to choose with protecting the life of new birthed baby or to MURDER the live birthed baby on election day 2020:

Three Senators did not vote and they ALL are Republicans. If YOU live in this Senator’s State, YOU need to phone or write to ask WHY. If the reason is lame, DO NOT VOTE FOR THAT SENATOR:

Something to dwell on with your voting decision in 2020: The SIXTH COMMANDMENTin the Amplified Version clarity on Baby-Killing:

13 “You shall not commit murder (unjustified, deliberate homicide). — Exodus 20: 13 (AMP)

It’s time to terminate (or abort) the Senate 60-vote threshold to change laws and end filibusters!

Democrats block bill to ensure medical care for abortion survivors

By Kimberly Leonard

February 25, 2019 06:12 PM — Updated Feb 25, 2019, 09:14 PM

Washington Examiner

Senate Democrats on Monday defeated a GOP attempt to advance legislation that would clarify that babies who survive attempted abortions must receive medical care.

Republicans and anti-abortion advocates pushed for the bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, to receive a vote so that they could put individual senators on the spot regarding the issue of third-trimester abortion. GOP senators have been aiming to pressure Democrats to state whether they believe any limits should be placed on abortion after controversial comments appearing to indicate otherwise from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.

The legislation fell short of the 60 votes it needed to advance in a procedural maneuver, 53 to 44. Democrats Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Doug Jones of Alabama joined all Republicans present in voting in favor.

“I don’t always follow the Democrats,” Jones told the Washington Examiner of his decision to support the bill. “Having studied the bill I think it’s the right vote.”

Republicans and Democrats largely talked past each other about the bill’s purpose during floor debate ahead of the vote. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who introduced the bill, said it would stop doctors from letting a baby die who survived a botched abortion. Democrats countered that the bill would limit what doctors could do after the birth of a baby who had a grave medical condition, and as a result either wouldn’t live past birth or wouldn’t survive long.

President Trump weighed in on the bill’s defeat several hours later, calling it “one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress.”

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children,” the president tweeted Monday night. “The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth. This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

During his floor speech ahead of the vote, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the bill would “target, intimidate and shut down reproductive doctors across this country” and “impose requirements on what types of care doctors must provide.”

“It has always been illegal to harm a newborn infant,” he said. “This bill has nothing to do with that.” He called the legislation “Washington politics at its worst.”

Sasse countered that the bill would keep doctors from “actively allowing a baby to die” who had survived an abortion.

“What this bill does is try to secure basic rights, equal rights, for babies that are born and survive outside the womb,” he said.

A group of House Republicans, led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, walked on the Senate floor to support the vote.

Earlier this month, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., rejected a motion to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act via unanimous consent, a procedure which a sole senator can stop. Murray objected because, she said, the bill was unnecessary as the U.S. already has laws against infanticide.

Northam and Virginia Del. Kathy Tran, also a Democrat, said several weeks ago that they supported a state bill that appeared to allow abortion at the time of birth. Tran later said she misspoke about when abortion would be permitted and Northam’s office later released a statement saying that the governor’s comments were mischaracterized and had been intended to address cases in which babies wouldn’t survive birth because of deformity or another health issue.

Sasse pounced on the comments during the floor debate Monday, saying that Northam’s comments amounted to a “discussion about whether you throw that little baby in the trash can.”

Virginia tabled the abortion bill, but other states, including Illinois and Massachusetts, are considering loosening restrictions on third-trimester abortion. Supporters of looser restrictions say they are meant to address circumstances in which fetuses have severe medical conditions that would cause them not to survive birth, or that would result in short, painful lives.

The bill that failed Monday would have built on the 2002 Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which clarified that “every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development” is a “person” for all federal law purposes. That law was intended to clarify that babies were supposed to receive protections if they survived an abortion, and Sasse’s bill further clarifies what level of care they are supposed to receive, including being immediately transferred to a hospital.

If that protocol isn’t followed, then the doctor performing the abortion would face criminal prosecution. Republicans have noted the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion provider who was convicted of killing babies after attempted abortions, as evidence that their bill is necessary. Democrats and abortion rights groups counter that the doctor was prosecuted and convicted, showing that the legal mechanism are already adequate.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., pointed to the 2002 bill when explaining his decision to vote against Monday’s measure, and saying that the previous legislation already clarifies that infanticide is illegal. Kaine, who has said he is personally troubled by abortion but votes to uphold abortion rights, said he didn’t receive any statistics from Republicans about why the bill was necessary and he said he would have wanted to see the bill go through committee first.

“When you have hearings on bills you get the facts out and you explore whether it’s needed,” Kaine said. “They didn’t even want to bring it to committee and that tells me I don’t think they had a real case to justify the bill.”

Democrats Block Senate Bill That Would Require Medical Care For Babies That Survive Abortion

This says awful things about where we are as a society. Democrats in the Senate have blocked a bill which would make it required to provide medical care to a baby which survived an abortion. Are these really the leaders we want in Washington?

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., rejected the motion to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, authored by Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., and co-sponsored by other Republicans. Sasse had sought to pass the bill via unanimous consent, meaning that one senator could stop it by objecting.

“You’re either for babies or you’re defending infanticide,” Sasse said before the vote. “That’s literally what this bill is about.”

Murray said in objecting to the call for unanimous consent the U.S. already had laws against infanticide, and accused Sasse of misrepresenting the purpose of his legislation.

GOP senators were aiming to pressure Democrats to state whether they believe any limits should be placed on abortion after controversial comments appearing to indicate otherwise from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam…

The abortion bill introduced in the Senate had the backing of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who said during his opening remarks on the Senate floor Monday that the legislation was “the very definition of something that might receive unanimous consent.”

“What could be more unanimous than this? … It’s harrowing this legislation is even necessary,” McConnell said.

McConnell’s point is exactly right. How far have we fallen as a nation that this is even needed?

Proud Baby Murder Govenor Cuomo brushes off criticism of New York abortion law: ‘I’m not here to legislate religion’

Proud Baby Murder Govenor Cuomo brushes off criticism of New York abortion law: ‘I’m not here to legislate religion’  

Proud Baby Murder Andrew Cuomo Governor of New York

Amid Catholic leaders’ calls for excommunication, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has dug in his heels and defended a controversial state law that loosens the rules on abortion.

The law allows abortions to be performed by non-doctors up until the point of birth for many reasons. Cuomo, who touts his Catholic faith and who once was an altar boy, brushed off criticism of the law on Tuesday.

“The Catholic Church doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose. Yes, I understand their religious view,” he said. “But I’m not here to legislate religion.”

Cuomo pointed out that his father, Mario Cuomo, the late former three-term mayor, received similar criticism for his support of abortion.

“Bishops attacking Governor Cuomo,” he said with laughter. “Let’s pull that headline up from about 30 years ago.”

TEXAS WORSHIP LEADER PENS NEW SONG IN RESPONSE TO NEW YORK ABORTION BILL: ‘NOT FORGOTTEN’

Cuomo said it is all part of a push for “socially progressive” legislation in direct opposition of the Trump administration “that wants to roll back Roe v. Wade.” He went further, saying not only would he like to put Roe v. Wade into law, but he’d “like to incorporate it into the constitution.”

The law has come under fire by devout Catholics and religious leaders, who call it draconian and inhumane. Some Catholic leaders have called on Cuomo to be excommunicated for championing the law.

New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan — who doesn’t think Cuomo should be excommunicated over a political decision — rebuked the Democratic governor from a purely human rights perspective, especially for publicly celebrating a law the New York City cardinal told “Fox & Friends” is “ghoulish, grisly, and gruesome.”

Last week, Cuomo framed his decision as giving New York women “the fundamental right to control their own body.”

In a back and forth between the governor and the Catholic church, Cuomo went after the church for pushback against passing the Child Victims Act. He said he’s with Pope Francis, but Dolan insists Cuomo is taking quotes out of context.

NEW YORK IS LATEST STATE PUSHING ABORTION LAWS AMID FEARS ROE VS. WADE WILL BE OVERTURNED

Father Jonathan Morris told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday Cuomo is trying to use the “disgusting” abuse of minors by the Catholic church as a way to say he is “morally correct” after passing the “Reproductive Health Act.”

Morris said excommunication is still an option but doesn’t seem like it would be helpful or effective.

“For some reason he still calls himself a Catholic,” Morris said, “I would just say come back or just say you’re not a Catholic.”Caleb Parke is an associate editor for FoxNews.com. You can follow him on Twitter @calebparke
