Article: 35 Of Pope Francis's Most Prophetic Statements

X Comments    Last updated: 2015-10-26 20:00:37

Pope Francis has brought new spirit into the Church with his humble lifestyle and direct and often challenging commentary on world affairs and personal ethics.  
Rick Perry
"Abortion is the second-most conducted surgical procedure in this country."
Even giving birth by cesarean section has occurred more frequently than abortion.

Right To Life
"Wendy Davis opposes any limits on abortion."
She opposes late term abortions

Billy Graham
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Country was not written by Graham

This was previously attributed to Paul Harvey, but was written in 1996 by Bob Russell for a Kentucky Governor's Prayer Breakfast, then delivered by Rev. Joe Wright at the Kansas House of Representatives.  Why would a true Christian twist the truth?
Fake Fetus
Fetus at 12 weeks gestation. Legal to kill in all 50 states. Is this a blob of cells to you?
It's a picture of a hand-painted resin doll crafted by artist  Donna Lee and sold through the One Tiny Life organization

Rick Perry
Rick Perry leads top elected officials with 10 percent of claims rated Pants on Fire
Outspoken Christian Texas Governor, Rick Perry, has more pants on fire claims than any other top elected official.  Click here to see PolitiFact summary and some of those boldface lies.
Democratic Party
Could GOP bill targeting abortion require IRS "rape audits"?
The GOP-controlled House did approve, then later remove a bill, that would require rape victims who claimed a medical expense deduction for an abortion, to explain the deduction to the IRS only if her return were audited for some other reason, and only if medical expense deductions came into question.
American Life League
Says, Girl Scouts are teaching girls to emulate pro-abortion icons.
The scouts' advocacy guide includes some quotes by or info about famous women, but none of the guide's 50-some biographical blurbs mentions any woman's activism per abortion as a reason for singling her out. Abortion is not mentioned elsewhere in the guide, either.

Charles Angeletti
Professor makes students recite 'Anti-American' pledge of allegiance
Angeletti's strong political statement against Christian and University values by having students pledge allegiance to a racist, homophobic, sexist America that is in the name of Jesus, that hates Communists and women who want to get abortions.
Texas Rights To Life
Texas Right to Life says UT students signed petition to abort babies and,children up to age 5.
This email implies that UT students were hustling up support for legalizing infanticide and child killings. In reality, a visitor briefly collected signatures one day, almost like attempting a trick.
Bishop Thomas Tobin
"Abortions account for 94 percent of the services provided for pregnant women by Planned Parenthood."
Planned Parenthood’s annual report show that the agency conducted 1.1 million pregnancy tests, 3.7 million tests for sexually transmitted diseases, prenatal services, and childbirth classes, among other services, but the agency does not track abortion numbers. The Bishop's figures have no factual basis.
The Family Foundation
"The United States is one of only seven nations that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization."
PolitiFact cites done by both pro- and anti-abortion rights groups that back up this claim.
Scott Walker
Walker said, If women seeking an abortion see their ultrasound, "the odds are pretty high they're going to keep the baby."
The latest academic study shows that nearly all women proceed with an abortion even after seeing the ultrasound.
Harry Reid
Planned Parenthood is "the only health care that a significant number of women get. About 30 percent of women, that's their health care."
That’s not the case -- Planned Parenthood saw 2.7 million patients in 2013, not the 39 million it would have needed to see for Reid’s claim to be accurate. Even if every Planned Parenthood patient had no other health care options, the group would have seen about 2 percent of women, not 30 percent. 
Marco Rubio
Rubio said he had never advocated exceptions for rape or incest to abortion bans.
 In 2013, he co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was meant to prohibit abortions of unborn children more than 20 weeks into a pregnancy. It  would have allowed exceptions in rape or incest or if the life of the mother was threatened. He refused to say if he would let a woman die rather than abort.
Marco Rubio
"A minor cannot get a tattoo without parental consent but can get an abortion without parental consent."
More commonly, parents by law need to be at least notified -- and in many cases give their consent -- for a minor to have an abortion. There is a significant exception, however: 37 states allow a minor to go through a judge without notifying parents. As for tattoos, most states either ban them for minors or require parental consent.
Alliance Defending Freedom
"Zero Planned Parenthood facilities are licensed to do mammograms. Planned Parenthood, women don’t need you!"
In an effort to debunk defenders that Planned Parenthood provides essential women’s health services in addition to abortions, an anti-abortion group claimed that none of the organization’s clinics is licensed to provide mammograms. Planned Parenthood physicians do however perform the clinical exams that lead to referrals for a mammogram or other specialized care.
Planned Parenthood
Virginia woman bares mastectomy scars to lawmaker intent on defunding Planned Parenthood.
During an anti-abortion rant to defund Planned Parenthood, Leigh Anne Woods walked up the podium and took her shirt off saying, “You have a problem because they perform abortions, look at everything else they do, they save lives!” Woods said. “It’s more than birth control,” she insisted. “It’s more than abortion. They save lives.”
Pope Francis
During the upcoming Holy, "Jubilee" year, Pope Francis will allow priests to forgive women who had abortions .
Until now the Catholic Church taught that abortion is such a grave sin that those who procure or perform it incur an automatic excommunication. Only designated clergy and missionaries were allowed to formally forgive abortions. Priests may grant absolution between Dec. 8, 2015 to Nov. 26, 2016. Francis described the "existential and moral ordeal" faced by women who have terminated pregnancies.
Jeb Bush Fl
Jeb Bush says, Planned Parenthood is "not actually doing women’s health issues."
Setting abortion procedures aside -- Planned Parenthood offered more than 10 million services in 2013. Those services included contraception, breast exams, pregnancy tests, pap tests and STI/STD testing and treatment.
Greg Abbott Tx Gop
"After Texas defunded Planned Parenthood, both the unintended pregnancy and abortion rates dropped."
Abortions were already declining. So, half this claim draws on cherry-picked statistics from Abbott and the other half lacks factual backup
Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah
Chaffetz says in 2006, Planned Parenthood performed more prevention services and cancer screenings than abortions, but in 2013, there were more abortions.
The statement is inaccurate. In fact, there were three times as many cancer screenings and prevention services as abortions in 2013.
Dana Loesch
Loesch said that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards was "forced to concede that 86 percent of Planned Parenthood’s revenue is from abortion."
Richards made no such admission, even though she was grilled for 5 hours and not allowed to answer questions before the September 29, 2015 U.S. House hearing on Planned Parenthood. The Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch, served as a foil the claim that just 3 percent of it’s services are abortion-related.

Dan Patrick R-tx
Patrick says Planned Parenthood does nothing but profit from killing babies and then selling body parts
Planned Parenthood’s most common pregnancy services in 2013 were pregnancy tests (1.1 million services); HIV tests (704,000 services); emergency contraception kits (1.4 million services) and Pap tests (378,692 services). No federal money has paid for any abortion services, and there’s been no confirmation it sells body parts for profit.
Planned Parenthood
Grand Jury turns tables on Planned Parenthood accusers, but Texas Governor continues his investigation and his assault on Texas PP clinics.
On 1/25/2016 a Houston grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood of allegations that they sold organs of aborted fetuses, and instead indicted the undercover videographers behind the allegations on charges of using fake driver's licenses and violating Texas' law against the purchase and sale of human organs- the very law they tried to bring against against PP.
