Pro-Life Forum 57 - Rachel Mackenzie, A Journey back from Beyond
We hear an amazing personal testimony here from Rachel Mackenzie who was the guest speaker for the launch of this on-coming 40 Days For Life Campaign in Portsmouth. This must be heard. It is a truly amazing story of the broken childhood and life of Rachel, and how God's grace and Mary's intercession are so powerful. We wish God's grace and courage on this day of Ash Wednesday and the start of 40 Days for Life Spring Campaign. "Memento, homo ... quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris" (cf. Gn 3:19). We must turn to the Lord in a spirit of repentance in this LENT. This is the acceptable time of prayer, penance and alms-giving. What greater alms can we give than our charity to stand up as a visible Witness for the TRUTH at "Ground Zero".

Pro-Life Forum 58 - Dr. Thomas Ward and the 8th Amendment
The Forum broadcasts a very candid interview with Dr. Thomas Ward, Founder and President at National Association of Catholic Families who enlightens us about his childhood and where the root cause of the Culture of Death lies today. The Forum switches focus. We hear about the fight to keep the 8th Amendment in Ireland. “The 8th Amendment (Article 40.3.3) is the last remaining constitutional protection for the unborn in Ireland. Since its insertion into the Constitution in 1983, it has ensured that pregnant women in Ireland receive all necessary medical treatment and at the same time has provided full protection for the unborn child’s right to life. It is no exaggeration to say that tens of thousands of people are alive in Ireland today thanks to the 8th Amendment. We know of many mothers who are grateful for the Amendment, because without it their children may never have been born.”

Pro-Life Forum 59 - St.Joseph Patron of the Pro-Life Movement
As we journey into the Month on March, Forum 59 adopts St. Joseph as its powerful patron. Franciscan Conceptionist Venerable Mary of Agreda says, "“On the Day of Judgement, the condemned will weep bitterly for not having realised how powerful and efficacious a means of salvation they might have had in the intercession of St. Joseph, and for not having done their utmost to gain the friendship of the Eternal Judge.” Let us never forget the power of the silence of this most beautiful hidden saint. We also hear of the first miracles during this Spring's 40 daysforlife campaign in Bournemouth. Praise be Jesus and Mary, now and forever.

Pro-Life Forum 60 - The Apparition of Silence at Knock
Let us return to silence and prayer to grow in Holiness. This is the only way to defeat the serpent in this culture of death. Let us be silent and learn from the Apparition par excellence for silence in our struggle to keep Ireland free from Abortion. The apparition in County Mayo in Ireland of Our Lady of Knock is reported to have occurred on the evening of August 21, 1879, the vigil of the octave of the feast of the Assumption. Those who witnessed the miracle ranged in age from five years old to seventy-five. The apparition was described as follows: “Our Lady was wearing a large, brilliant crown and clothed in white garments. On her right was Saint Joseph, his head inclined toward her and on her left Saint John the Evangelist. To the left of Saint John was an altar on which stood a cross and a lamb.” Standing only a few feet off the ground, the Blessed Virgin wore a white cloak and was described by witnesses as being incredibly beautiful. She wore a bright golden crown, and appeared to be praying with her eyes looking toward heaven with her arms bend in front of her with her palms facing inward

Pro-Life Forum 61 - The Rally For Life Dublin 10th March 2018
The Pro-Life Forum travels to Ireland for the Rally for Life. As many as 100,000 people attended a rally in Dublin to show their support to the continued right to life of the unborn in Ireland, organisers say. According to the “Save the 8th” campaign, the March 10 All Ireland Rally for Life attracted the biggest crowd ever to express their wishes on the Irish abortion question. The Eighth Amendment to the Irish constitution guarantees the right-to-life of the unborn child. The pro-abortion Irish government will be holding a referendum in late May in the hope of abolishing the amendment. Spokeswoman Niamh Uí Bhriain said, via a press release, that the government’s abortion proposal had woken a “sleeping giant” and the campaign to save Ireland from abortion now expected “a surge of volunteers” to work for a “No” vote in the referendum. "These huge numbers are a rising of the people against the media and political elites and against the powerful international abortion industry who have poured millions into a campaign attacking our pro-life laws. Ireland is at a defining point in our history, and we are challenging the people to reject the abortion industry and to demand a better answer for mothers and babies," she stated. "Abortion has no place in a compassionate and progressive society."

Pro-Life Forum 62 - Ireland Please Keep the Faith and the Eighth!
The Pro-Life Forum keeps its concentration on the battle for the voiceless in Ireland. Tonight we backtrack to the Feast of St. Patrick, Patron of Ireland. Our own Father George tells us of the curse on Ireland through the introduction of the intrinsic evil of contraception. What will happen then to this "bastion of the faith" if the 8th Amendment is repealed by the people of Ireland in the upcoming Referendum. Will we not return, as Father George preaches, to a land of child sacrifice to pagan gods. Let us say no to abortion and and these evils that mock God - Contraception, Homosexuality, Euthansia, Gender Theory and Abortion. Father Marcel Guarnizo - one of the chief exponents for the voice of life now fighting for the 8th Amendment - gives a BRILLIANT talk to the forum to highlight his ideas of how we can defeat the serpent of abortion and stand up for our human rights.

Pro-Life Forum 63 - Father Marcel tells us how unjust the referendum is !
Father Marcel speaks out for Life. He speaks of the unity between the Irish and the USA. He enlightens us about the real notion of Sacrifice by those exiles in Siberia and not to succumb to the "Paper Tigers" in Ireland. You can not have a true democracy after Abortion is legalised. We have seen today the collapse today in the West of the notion of Democracy. It is immoral to have a referendum on Life, so in Ireland we cannot morally decide who lives and dies. We cannot pass a law and give the nation the power to have the right for someone to live or die. This is immoral and undemocratic to try and abort the unborn out of existence. This is then an illicit and unconstitutional vote. We must vote however since they have abandoned reason. We must say "NO" to all attempts to remove the fundamental rights of the unborn and all members of society. Let us pray to the Immaculate that Ireland will not be a follow down the road of the culture of death as other nations. Let is say "NO" to repeal of the 8th Amendment and adhere to the truth.

Pro-Life Forum 64 - Maria Steen speaks the Truth !
Pro-Life Forum continues its campaign to help save the Eight. Here the Forum catches up with the an Advocate, Maria Steen, a member of the Institute who kindly gave us an interview before last month's rally to save the Eighth Amendment in Dublin. She also speaks about the Political background to the unjust proposed amendment to the Irish Constitution. The Iona Institute promotes the place of marriage and religion in society. Their website says "Our starting point in debates about the family is that children deserve the love of their own mother and father whenever possible. We believe in the public funding of both denominational schools and other types of schools that reflect the wishes of parents in an increasingly diverse society. We also promote freedom of conscience and religion and the right to life".

Pro-Life Forum 65 - New Pro-Life Holy Hour and Rachel speaks out
Pro-Life Forum 65 introduces the Listeners to the necessity to "Watch one Hour" with Jesus in our lives to end by Prayer, this holocaust we are living. What is this hour? Do we take it literally, or should we perhaps interpret it in the light of the instruction given in the 17th Century by the Blessed Virgin Mary to the Franciscan mystic Mary of Agreda in the Mystical City of God, Chapter 51 Transfixion who says " In order that thou mayest attain this, I wish that thy prayer be without intermission and that thou watch one hour with me, that is during the whole of thy life; for, compared with eternity, life is less than one hour, yea less than one moment. We also listen to an Article about the oncoming Referendum to repeal the eighth and to the aftermath of the vote against freedom of speech when Ealing Council decided to adopt a new "buffer zone" on April 23rd 2018. Rachel Mackenzie gives a startling account of her abortion without anaesthetic, when she saw the Doctor "counting the body parts of her child", saying that she would never make these details public outside the abortion centre. Note the irony here - she was speaking publicly on the Victoria Derdyshire show which attracts millions of viewers. Well said Rachel under the action of the Holy Spirit to proclaim the TRUTH.

Pro-Life Forum 66 - The Hippocratic Oath and The area of Conscience
Pro-Life Forum 66 educates us on the Hippocratic Oath or ethical code attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, adopted as a guide to conduct by the medical profession throughout the ages. The oath dictates the obligations of the physician to students of medicine and the duties of pupil to teacher. In the oath, the physician pledges to prescribe only beneficial treatments, according to his abilities and judgement; to refrain from causing harm or hurt; and to live an exemplary personal and professional life. Dr Orla Halpenny expands well upon the principle at a recent Doctor's for Life forum on the 8th Amendment at at the Citizens Assembly. Finally we listen to a Fertility expert called Maire O'Regan who is preparing the ground of "Conscience" if the referendum on May 25th in Ireland votes against Life. She finishes off well in speaking beautiful words about the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary.

Pro-Life Forum 67 - Eight Reasons to Save the Eight
Only 4 weeks remaining before the referendum in Ireland to "save the eight". We hear once again the Wisdom and strength of the words of Father Marcel. Thanks to the Eighth Amendment - It’s up to all of us to think about how much the Eighth Amendment has contributed to our society. An independent report commissioned by the Pro Life Campaign looked at just how many lives have been saved by the Eighth. Essentially it asked what would Ireland looked like if there was no Eighth Amendment – if the referendum had failed and abortion had been introduced to Ireland in 1994? What the report found was that at a conservative estimate, 100,000 people are alive in Ireland today thanks to the Eighth Amendment. Because abortion is not available here, our abortion rate has stayed relatively low compared to other countries. In Ireland, 1 in 19 pregnancies ends in abortion. but IF "I were in England or Wales", that rate is 1 in 5. So if Ireland had had the same abortion rate as England and Wales since 1994, some 196,000 Irish citizens would not have been born.

Pro-Life Forum 68 - Searching for Truth Alfie Evans
Alfie’s story is both inspirational and infuriating. Inspirational, because the little boy clung to life with a tenacity that attracted attention from around the world. Infuriating, because it is so hard to understand why the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital could not simply have allowed Alfie to be transferred to a hospital that was more than willing to take him—but instead fought with the parents in court, insisting that their judgment should override that of the parents. Our hearts go out to Alfie’s parents and family, who fought so long and so hard for their little boy. I hope they realize that they became role models for what it looks like to be a self-sacrificing parent willing to do anything for their child. They did everything they could think of to defend Alfie, and not because of anything he could do for them. They did it because Alfie was theirs, and that was all that mattered. The story of Alfie Evans showed the world what it looks like when parents love their children no matter what, that all lives are precious, and that every child should get a chance to live—and that every child’s parents should fight for that right.

Pro-Life Forum 69 - Father Leo Boyle
Father Leo Boyle SSPX says that in Ireland today, many think that this push for an abortion culture is only a medical issue. But it is a moral issue since all women know well that pregnancy is not a disease. Here Fr Boyle discusses the "philosophy" that makes possible the culture of abortion and the strategy of those who are behind this agenda in the context of the current attempt to legalise abortion in Ireland. We also read a letter concerning the grate 2018 March 4 Life held for the first time in London on May 05th. The letter alludes to an interesting point that it is racism in its first degree to victimise the unborn in the womb.

Pro-Life Forum 70 - Francis Hogan Path to Healing a Nation
We ask for the Listeners to pray a Nine Day Novena to Save the Eighth for May 25th 2018. Here we listen to the famous Irish Scripture Scholar Francis Hogan who describes the path to have healing in Ireland, She uses Chronicles Chapter 7, verse 14, whereby the nation of Ireland as well as the Irish Church. A text given to Solomon after the dedication of the temple,. God gives Solomon 3 conditions and awaits 3 responses to reflect the Blessed Trinity. Everything depends on an "if" clause. This is where we are in Ireland now. We must stop sinning and follow God;s Will, humble ourselves and pray, seek the face of God and consecrate this great nation again to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. God perhaps will anticipate our humility and help us to Save the Eighth.

Pro-Life Forum 71 - The Holy Rosary
What can we do now for Ireland but Pray Pray and Pray. The fruit of pray is never wasted even though 66.4% of the votes in Ireland wen't against Life and the unborn in the referendum. Just as in John's Gospel Chapter 6 and verse 64 ( 6:64), we see that it is only the spirit that gives life and this is the passage on the Holy Eucharist where many don't believe in Life - Jesus Christ. They walked away as all those who voted against Life in Ireland. We will continue however with a New Strengthened Resolve to protect the Unborn because the only winners in this referendum were those who voted according to God's Designs.

His presentation will focus on the background and reasons why Humanae Vitae was written by Pope Paul VI and how a number of agents including some in the Church, the pharmaceutical industry and others galvanizing the mass media in order to persuade the Church to change its teaching concerning birth control.

Pro-Life Forum 73 - The Immutable and Timeless Character of Humanae Vitae
Bishop Athanasius Schneider speaks at the National Association of Catholic Families Annual Retreat at Walsingham, the principal Marian Shrine in England in May 2018. He unpacks with great wisdom the Truth of the Gospel of Life by quoting many teachings from the Perennial Magisterial Teaching of the Catholic Church. When the news emerged in 1968 that Pope Paul VI intended to issue an encyclical on the use of artificial birth control, many people thought that they saw the writing on the wall. A commission initially appointed by Pope John XXIII in 1963 and expanded by Paul VI had suggested in a private report to Pope Paul VI in 1966 that artificial contraception might not be intrinsically evil. Copies of the report had been leaked to the press, and many commentators were certain that change was in the air. When "Humanae Vitae" was released, however, Pope Paul VI reaffirmed the traditional Catholic teaching on birth control and abortion. Today, as the destruction of the family that Paul VI predicted is well underway, the encyclical is regarded by many as prophetic.​

Pro-Life Forum 74 - Four Prophesies and Four Sins
In 1968, Pope Paul VI issued Humanae Vitae, where, with commendable clarity, he restated the Church's teaching, prophetically warning of grave consequences if not adhered to. The teaching was rejected and, within 50 years, those grave consequences have morphed into the near complete global institutionalization of the four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance.

Pro-Life Forum 76 - Archbishop Fulton Sheen on Birth Control
”The root principle of birth-control is unsound. It is a glorification of the means and a contempt of the end; it says that the pleasure which is a means to the procreation of children is good, but the children themselves are no good. In other words, to be logical, the philosophy of birth-control would commit us to a world in which trees were always blooming but never giving fruit, a world full of sign-posts that were leading nowhere. In this cosmos every tree would be a barren fig-tree and for that reason would have upon it the curse of God" - Archbishop Fulton Sheen

As a response to the tragedy at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital where the report last week was made into the deaths of hundreds of elderly patients at Gosport Memorial Hospital in the period 1989 to 2000, caused by the inappropriate prescription of opiates and painkillers, Bishop Philip Egan says that he has "long been uneasy with the concept “quality of life,” which seems to invest experts and judges with power over the life and death of an individual. I prefer the term “dignity of life,” which reminds us of the absolute good of the person and their infinite worth". We also listen to the Truth about the prophetic encyclical Humanae Vitae and its solid doctrinal foundation.

Pro-Life Forum 78 - The Evil of Contraception by Michael Voris
In 1968, Pope Paul VI issued his landmark encyclical letter Humanae Vitae (Latin, "Human Life"), which reemphasized the Church’s constant teaching that it is always intrinsically wrong to use contraception to prevent new human beings from coming into existence. Contraception is "any action which, either in anticipation of the conjugal act [sexual intercourse], or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible" (Humanae Vitae 14). This includes sterilization, condoms and other barrier methods, spermicides, coitus interruptus (withdrawal method), the Pill, and all other such methods.

Pro-Life Forum 79 - The Martyrdum of St. James the Great
Nothing is known of St. James the Greater's early life, though it has been established that he is the son of Zebedee and Salome and brother of John the disciple. The title "the Greater" was added to St. James' name to help distinguish him from the Apostle James "the Less," who is believed to have been shorter than James "the Greater." Saint James the Greater was one of Jesus' first disciples. James was fishing with his father and John the Apostle when Jesus came to the shores of the Sea of Galilee and called for the fisherman, who were unable to catch any fish that day, to dip their nets in the water once again. It is said that one day, as he prayed, The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to him and asked him to build her a church, which he did. The Forum follow's the story of hos Martyrdom according to the Franciscan Mystic Venerable Mary of Agreda.

Pro-Life Forum 82 - The Assumption of Our Queen
Here we care on the oldest Marian Feast Day. The belief pertaining to Mary’s Assumption, while celebrated for centuries (many saints have homilies on the Assumption), was elevated to the status of dogma with the Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Deus on November 1, 1950 by Pope Pius XII. Essentially the Holy Father declared it to be true that Mary was assumed body and soul into Heaven, and to support this claim, he provided the witness of the Catholic Church throughout the centuries. Despite the definition and support throughout history for the belief, the document leaves open-ended certain questions pertaining to the Assumption. Here we listen to the account of the Franciscan Mystic Venerable Mary of Agreda about the "Dormition" of Our Mother. At the end continues in our theme of Humanae Vitae a EWTN Host Barbara McGuigan of the "Good Fight" comes to the Emerald Isle to present a talk - "The Valiant Woman - Crucible with Joy - Resolve under severe testing".
