Shamefully Leading the Way in the Fight to Kill More Babies


Ah, Washington University. Highest ranked University in the state. National reputation. Huge endowment.

And, let's not forget, it supports killing little babies in the womb. Not only that, mind you, but it trains the "doctors" who kill them.

KC sent a link to this story he found at the Missouri Family Policy Council. Some facts of interest found there:

Washington University has joined forces with Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to train abortionists. It is called the Family PlanningFellowship Program, and its stated goal is to "develop tomorrow's leaders in reproductive health."
Fellows in the program are trained to become "expert" in all methods of first and second trimester abortions, which the program describes as "uterine evacuation procedures." The program claims it is the only fellowship in the nation providing the opportunity to develop "high-level...clinical skills" in "abortion care."


[...]


The Family Planning Fellowship Program also states that while most of the fellows' abortion experience will be at Planned Parenthood, "new in-patient abortion services are being
developed at Barnes-Jewish Hospital." The program lists Barnes-Jewish Hospital as one of the clinical training sites.

[...]

The story also lists the names of the leading doctors in this program, including one notorious butcher operating at the local mill.


The blood of innocents cries from the ground, and we all have to stand before the judgement seat of God one day. Let us redouble our prayers that this genocide stops.

The 40 Days for Life this Fall is from Sept 23 to Nov 1, with a prayer vigil outside Planned Parenthood on Forest Park. http://www.40daysforlife.com/stlouis/

it is about sheep and goats my friends, sheep and goats. "souls fall into hell like snowflakes because they have no one to pray and do penance for them." i attended a rosary service in Pana IL last weekend where there is a seer that has been receiving locutions from the Blessed Mother since 1988. this is not dogma, it is private revelation. she stated that the "illumination of conscience" is happening very soon and it will first come to the souls of priests that they may assist the souls needing to confess.
Dear Lord illumine the darkest corners of my soul that all of my offenses may be brought to light, the light of Truth. Amen.
Timman, you may not want to post this, but i thought that you might like to have this information.

I never understood why Archbishop Burke never went after the Danforths. Almost sad that he went after parishes (St. Stans), a woman singer who volunteered to raise money for kids with cancer at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, and a nun who used to teach catechesis at the New Cathedral, but never took on Reverend Danforth.

I really don't know here - can he only voice opposition to people within his faith, and those outside of it are 'out of bounds?'

He clearly voiced his opposition to the baby-killing agenda of the Danforths on amendment 2. He was out in front and did not equivocate. He cannot discipline them because they are not Catholic.

Of course, your description of those he "went after" leaves something to be desired in the way of fairness, but we can let that pass, as anyone who has followed the events with a Catholic mindset knows how to interpret the descriptors.

And this (along with many other atrocities) is why I politely tell the college kids they have cold-calling all alums is detail why Wash U will never get another dime of my money.

Timman,

Thanks for the explanation - kind of what I thought.

Obviously, the Danforths were for Amendment 2 and we as a church were/are against it. Archbishop Burke spoke out against it unequivocably ... but I do not remember him mentioning the Danforths by name even once - did he? My recollection was that he only spoke against the 'forces for Amendment 2' but never mentioned names, except maybe the Stowers from Kansas City (who pumped millions into the pro-A2 campaign.)

Thanks!

I don't know why personalizing a campaign would help the chances of its success. . . unless you can somehow fairly link the campaign to someone who is already unpopular, like the Rams' offensive line, for instance.

Anon at 11:35 - LOL!

Guess I wanted some consistency here. Archbishop Burke publicly called out Bernadette Lears and Sheryl Crow (who I do not believe is Catholic), but then only talked about some of the 'dark forces of evil' when in fact we know exactly the names behind such a place like Wash U.

Not sure if that's a public battle that either side would win, so maybe there is very good reason not to go after the Danforths. And with the Danforth money and Wash U's stature, their offensive line is a lot more powerful than what the Rams have mustered!

thetimman said...

Anon, I would point out that Miss Crow's involvement with a Catholic hospital on whose fundraising board was the Archbishop was the connection that led to his public stance.

Timman,

How can we get this story out to more people? Would it be possible to get the STL Review to publish it? I think this is vitally important for hospital consumers to know. I'm particularly shocked that SLU is involved, and I regarded Wash U doc's in much higher regard that they would be above murder.

Btw..isn't it illegal for Barnes to receive government payments (medicare & medicaid) if they also sponsor abortion? I thought that was law?

My understanding of the Hyde Amendment type laws is that they prohibit federal funding to pay for abortions, not that they prohibit federal funding to go to hospitals that perform abortions.

Anon at 16:01,
This is how bad rumors start - where did you get the idea that SLU was in any way, shape or form involved??? Please be extremely careful with your words - I could be wrong, but I think libel and slander could be issued for starting untruths. (Timman, can you shed light on that?)

Also, re your 'Btw,' if only it were so! Many public institutions that receive Medicare and Medicaid also provide 'abortion services.'

We are fighting to make sure that private, Catholic hospitals that receive Medicare and Medicaid are NOT forced into providing abortions. Hopefully, your comment here is a foreshadowing of things to come, but no laws exist right now to that effect.

Anon - The link to the Missouri Family Policy Council stated that SLU was involved. I learned that information from that site. If you don't agree with that or question the validity of it, check with the MO Family Policy Council.
