Understood By God Alone: The true story of St. John of God.

StJohnofGod

I think that you will be enthralled by the passages below as the life of Saint John of God reminds us that to serve God and Him alone as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church will cause us to be misunderstood and maligned by even our closest relatives and former associates.

They Said NO: What happened when 12 nurses refused to do abortions

The change came in September of 2011, with the news that a peer was being promoted. Though employed in the same unit as Fe, Beryl and the rest, this particular nurse had long been assigned to a special team that carried out the abortions without any involvement or assistance from other nurses on the Same Day Surgery floor. The abortion team had always drawn its staff from nurses who had expressed no qualms about helping end a child’s life.

Promoted from that team to a supervisory position over all the nurses, the new assistant manager announced that – since she and others had to help with abortions – she saw no reason why every nurse shouldn’t help. Hospital officials agreed, and passed a new, mandatory policy to make it so. The assistant manager quickly set up a training program that would give each nurse on the unit hands-on experience in how to assist with and clean up after abortions.

“As long as you work here,” she told the 12 nurses who openly protested, “you’re going to have to do it. If you don’t, you’re going to be fired or transferred out.”

“We were all shocked,” Fe says. “All these years I’ve been a nurse, I was never told to help kill children.”

Editor’s note: In California, you now have the right to be butchered by non-physicians in order to conveniently kill your unborn child … and perhaps … yourself!

“You just have to catch the baby’s head. Don’t worry, it’s already dead. ”

As we’ve reported, a dozen pro-life nurses in New Jersey are fighting for their right to follow their conscience and not be forced to assist at abortions.

This quote in The Washington Post by one of the nurses stopped me in my tracks when I read it:

One of the nurses, Fe Esperanza R. Vinoya, said a manager told her: “You just have to catch the baby’s head. Don’t worry, it’s already dead.”

Can you imagine anything more horrific than being forced to “catch” a dead baby’s head? A baby who only minutes before was alive in its mother’s womb?

Editor’s note: Further proof that the depravity of the abortion promoters is bounded neither by humanity or civility, and they have regard for neither God or man.

Hospital Tells Nurses: Assist Abortions or Be Fired

Lorna Jose Mendoza has been given a choice. She can either assist in an abortion this week at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, or she could refuse and risk losing her job.

Mendoza is one of a dozen nurses who filed suit today against the hospital – accusing them of violating federal and state law by forcing them to assist in abortions against their religious and moral objections.

Ed S. Comments:

Steve  Job’s birth  mom was a Co-Ed College student who was forced by her family to get rid of her baby, Steve Jobs. In the pre-Roe days, this meant adoption: today it means abortion: the final solution {choice}.
How many Steve Job-like babies never had a chance or choice to invent the ‘I Phone’? About  40  million “choice  babies” …  had  no  choice!
