A brief biography of Father O’Connor:
Fr. John F O’Connor was born and raised in Chicago, he was a Military Chaplain during the Second World War. He became curious about Hitler and the “anti-Semitism” of the Nazi regime. Many soldiers asked him why, when they liberated Jews from the concentration camps, some of the Nazi guards were themselves Jewish and had even been former mayors of towns in Germany prior to the War.

Fr. O’Connor was ordered to be examined by a psychologist following a talk in which he named his Superior as a member of the Gay Rights Movement. His Superior barred young men from joining the Dominicans if they refused to accept sodomy and homosexuality as a viable life style alternative. He had been informed of this by several young males who had sought ordination.

O’Connor had hired a canon lawyer to plead his dismissal from the Dominican Order in Rome, Fr Alfred Kunz. Fr. Kunz was brutally murdered in a ritualistic fashion after assisting in the investigation of a satanic pedophile cult connected to the priesthood [ 1998 murder remains unsolved] Additional appeals to the Pope went nowhere.

In the summer of 1991, Rome informed Fr. O’Connor that he was dismissed from the Dominicans. Fr. O’Connor packed his bags and left the River Forest Priory forever. He lived with his widowed sister until his death of natural causes Dec.7 2006.

On Ash Wednesday, February 28, 1990, Fr. O’Connor wrote: “When I made my vow of obedience 40 years ago, it was first and foremost to Jesus Christ, His Mother and St. Dominic and in obedience to them only death will silence my witnessing to the Truth.”

A brief biography and commentary of “Jane Roe” in the 1973 landmark case for abortion.

Norma Leah Nelson McCorvey born September 22, 1947 in Simmesport Louisiana.

She would become one of the most controversial figures in American Justice.  The landmark case of Roe v. Wade as “Jane Roe” in 1973.

Norma would have a long battle from pro-choice to pro-life.  She was befriended by Pro-Life Activist Flip Benham from the Pro-Life group Operation Rescue.  She would be baptized a Christian and go on to be a Roman Catholic.  In her autobiography she has professed to be a lesbian and surprisingly enough has since recanted this lifestyle.

Allegedly she has stated she was a pawn of two very ambitious lawyers for this case in the Supreme Court.  One Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee.  The case would challenge and attempt to overturn a  Texas State law prohibiting abortion.

Eventually she would grow to regret this decision.  The story is that Norma stated she was raped when she was around 21 years.  She has since stated that this is a lie.  Her child was never aborted and gave birth to a baby girl who was eventually adopted.

She has admitted as others have that abortion procedure has harmful consequences towards women.  Her petition to the Supreme Court to overturn Roe in 2005 has been rejected.

Today May 17th 2009 at Notre Dame a protest is taking place because the of the implications of a sitting President to receive an Honorary Degree from a Catholic University because of his stance on abortion is considered null and void on record at the Catholic Conference of Bishops of the United States.

Obama has stated that healthy, peaceful disagreement is a good thing and I agree.

At this historical date May 17,  2009 while writing this commentary 30 brave pro-lifers are sitting in jail from a peaceful march on the campus of Notre Dame University at Indiana for protesting and trespassing.  Many of them laypeople and famous alike.  One is Dr. Alan Keyes, political activist and diplomat.

President Obama and others want this barbaric practice and sacrifice of innocent lives rare but we cant have it both ways.  We cant keep sending tax dollars overseas for so called reproductive rights and not find sensible solutions to our problems as well.  Especially in these uncertain economic times.

According to the Pro-Life movement abortion not only degrades a woman’s dignity it also harms her physically, emotionally and mentally.  The question is what rights do the unborn have? Sonograms are proving  a child is in the womb and its life.  Places like Rachael’s Vineyard are speaking and counseling with those who are both male and female suffering from post abortive negative fallout.  Can we keep looking the other way?

The slogan today seems to be and I agree, “Women and Men deserve better than abortion.”  Since 1973 over 50,000,000+ (Not including the count around the world.) babies have been aborted and one question I have asked is, who have we aborted?  Did we abort someone who would find the cure for cancer, AIDS or even the next peacemaker of the Middleast? Someone’s future partner in marriage?  Our world leaders–who will it be in the future to solve these economic crises that crop up on occasion? The list goes on.

Pro-Choice movement wants reproductive rights but what will the cost be to America and the world at large for future generations? Do they understand the whole picture? There is the Pro and the Con but whose side has the better argument for a better future for America?

Only the future will tell out on the issue of Life.
