It's In The News: America "On The Brink of Being Totally Anti-Life"

Last Saturday I was sitting in the Scranton Hilton Hotel ballroom, attending the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Conference.

The day concluded with the 300 white, mostly elderly attendees being encouraged to write letters to their local paper. Those who wanted to "report" on the conference were given press releases to send to their newspapers. Photos were taken of attendees with speakers for publication in newspapers, journals, and local weekly publications. "You know those papers where reunions are reported on? You could use that paper to educate Americans about "pro-life" issues."

And so, from the MonroeNews comes this "article" from Dean Cousino. There's no doubt that this preaching, masquerading as a "news" item, is ideologically motivated. And it's in a local Michigan newspaper. Expect more of this trend in your local news outlets:

America is spiraling downward because it is losing a spiritual battle with forces promoting a "culture of death," a speaker told the Focus on Life Benefit Dinner audience Thursday.

The Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of Human Life International, a pro-life organization, said America is on a slippery slope.

"America is fairly close to the edge of the spectrum," the Rev. Euteneuer (pronounced Eyetenower) said. "We are on the brink of becoming a totally anti-life society. We are very far down that slippery slope (because) we are tolerating the greatest injustice in a free society — the killing of unborn children and people like Terri Schiavo."

Appointing a pro-abortion judge to the U.S. Supreme Court could push the country over the edge, he said.

Fifty years ago, both abortion and euthanasia were believed to be an "unspeakable evil," he said. He called lawmakers in Washington, D.C., the most "anti-life" Congress in history with multi-faceted proposals that attack life.

"Every society is pro-life until someone comes in to distort it," the diocesan priest from Florida told about 220 people at the banquet, held at LaRoy’s Hall. "We can stand up and say no, but it much harder in our country because we are supposed to be open-minded and tolerant. That is our great weakness."

In his 40-minute address, the Rev. Euteneuer, 47, described abortion as a "demonic religion," an "institutionalized form of killing" and a rebellion against God’s plan for human life.
