How Abortion Hurts Women
These eight facts most people don’t know about how abortion hurts women may be of interest to your readers. It was reported by Life News in London.
Dr. Frank Joseph
The following figures, referenced below from an
Elliott Institute publication
, are eight evidence-based facts about the consequences of abortion for women’ health. I have, where possible linked the references to the original sources.
Dr. Peter Saunders
1. 31% of women having abortions report suffering physical health complications (1)
2. 10% of women having abortions suffer immediate, potentially life-threatening complications (2, 3, 4)
3. Women have a 65% higher risk of clinical depression following abortion vs. childbirth (5)
4. 65% of women suffer symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after abortion (1)
5. Women’s death rates from various causes after abortion are 3.5 times higher than after giving birth (6, 7)
6. Many women describe their experience as ‘a nightmare’, which can hardly equated with ‘choice’. 60% of women surveyed after abortion responded that: ’Part of me died’ (1)
7. Suicide rates among women who have abortions are six times higher than those who give birth (7, 8)
8. Abortion increases a woman’s risk of future miscarriages by 60% (9)

Note: Studies 6, 7 and 8 looked at death rates for an average for up to one year after the end of the pregnancy. Another study found that looked at suicide rates for up to eight years found that, compared to women who gave birth, women who had abortions had a 62% higher risk of death from all causes and a 2.5 times higher suicide rate.

Wojtyla & Marx
In reference to your posting "
Was Wojtyla installed by Communists?
" I want to remind you that it became public knowledge - which is against conclave rules - that JP ll was reading the Communist Manifesto by Marx during the conclave.
I remind you as well that he was proposed as a candidate by the popemaker of that conclave the Freemason Cardinal
, who was an arch-modernist to boot.
It was also reported that Moscow knew of his election before the rest of the world. The KGB, when it had trouble penetrating the Vatican for information, used M16 British intelligence, obviously penetrated and Masonic to the bone.
Reflecting on what did or did not happen after Wojtyla's election; the words ring so true - a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
My thanks to Atila Guimaraes for keeping minds on track!
One of the best, if not the best way, to waste a mind is to poison it with bad philosophy.

Deacon Greg Kandra
I had a good laugh when I read the message and watched the video
on Greg Kandra. Actually, he is not that particular acrobatic performer. That mistake, however, has something of the truth because Kandra is a tight-rope walker, which is another kind of circus performer.
He is a prolific writer always trying to find a balance between progressivists and conservatives, the right and the left, truth and error, in order to please his middle-of-road audience. The tight-rope-walking formula that explains his success is this: to present Progressivism as palatable as possible to his politically correct public.
Keep up the good work,

Communism Has never Fallen
Dear Mr. Guimarães,
With all due respect, after having read your contributor Toby Westerman's
articles on Russia and China
for quite some time, I've come to the conclusion that although he desperately tries to figure out the writing on the wall, still he cannot identify WHY the "new Russia" so fatally resembles the old Soviet Union.
For, had he ever read - let alone: grasped - the two books by outstanding Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn,
New Lies for Old
The Perestroika Deception
(1995), as well as the late Christopher Story's reference work,
The European Union Collective
(2002), he certainly would stop parroting the official Soviet line of deception of a "fall" of the USSR back in 1991.
The shocking reality - according to Golitsyn and Story and very easy to realize as soon as one really opens one's eyes - is that there has been NO discontinuity in the Soviet/pan-communist project of Marxist-Leninist world revolution whatsoever. Indeed, the alleged "fall of communism" of 1989/91 in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union was the greatest lie ever sold, precisely to confuse and strategically disarm the United States and the West and to finally swing the balance of world power in favor of world communism, the latter of which we can now observe, real-time, as open cooperation-blackmail and WWIII-threats.
Golitsyn is THE key to understanding this (and no less a man than once-CIA counterintelligence expert James Jesus Angleton came to appreciate the enormous value of Golitsyn's fully accurate assessments as well as predictions). As an introduction to this, I recently published on my blog, beside much more extensive treatises on the same topic, a compilation entitled
Photographic Proof the USSR Still Exisst
. Do read it, everybody, and awaken to the grim fact that
were simply a giant propaganda and brainwashing offensive to psychologically overwhelm and manipulate the West and remove from its eyes the IMAGE of the enemy, and the image only!
All the best for your further work, and may God the Lord have mercy on us,
