living in a hypersexualized world is actually very spiritually exhausting and alienating 

if I can barely afford to feed myself, how do you expect me to be able to afford to carry a pregnancy? If I have to carry a pregnancy, I would starve to death. Having an abortion would most definitely save my life.

Before selecting the option to slaughter your living son or daughter while awaiting their birth, try these first…

Medicaid

Child Welfare Information Gateway

Children’s Health Insurance Program

Women, Infants, and Children

Child Nutrition Programs

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

USDA Food Distribution Programs

Maternal and Child Health Bureau

Financial Aid

Head Start

Of course, adoption is always an option ('pro-choice' always forgets about this one). The adoptive parents will pay your prenatal expenses, to include birth expenses (this is why adoption costs so much).

Stand for Life.

Where’s the dad in all this? Shouldn’t he be paying for the child’s upkeep (and even more importantly, actually RAISE the child?)

Cultureshift says the most dangerous place to live in is "in the womb". Really? I thought war zones, abusive households, neighborhoods where a lot of gangs and violence take place were dangerous places to live in. So by his logic who cares if you live in a place where there is war, or with someone who is extremely abusive, or if you're already born. That's Cultureshift's logic, right? Fuck born people. Fetus fetus fetus. Sweet slimy fetus floating in the womb because fetus.

Pretty much. 

Usually I don’t reblog stuff like this, I try to keep it light and supportive, but I can’t get over how true this is about culture shift. His page makes me want to throw up.

My statement that the most dangerous place to live is in the womb is absolutely true. More human beings have been killed while living in their mother’s womb than have been killed by every war, plague, genocide, famine, and natural disaster in recorded history - combined. Here are the current numbers of human beings lost to abortion and their equivalent population centers…

5,000 killed per HOUR - Germantown, Ohio

120,000 killed per DAY - New Haven, Connecticut

840,000 killed per WEEK - Jacksonville, Florida

3,650,000 killed per MONTH - Los Angeles, California

43,800,000 killed per YEAR - Canada and Israel, combined

No one ever said that the human beings losing their lives in other ways is somehow irrelevant or less of a tragedy. Until we end the devaluation of human life propagated by human abortion, it’s hard to imagine a world free of people killing one another. After all, if we teach our sons and daughters that it’s perfectly fine to kill their sons and daughters, how can we honestly expect our world to embrace a culture of life?

Are any saints better than others? Or are they all seen as equal?

Sorry anon, this has taken me a ridiculously long time to get back to you, and I hope you still see this. 

No, the Saints are in Heaven, and they’re all seen as equal. There are some Saints that have different titles on earth. You may hear about Doctors of the Church. This means that in addition to being canonized Saints, they contributed excellent, theologically sound writings to the Church.

If there’s any Saint who is “better,” it would be Mary, since she’s the Mother of God, Queen of Heaven, the Immaculate Conception (meaning she’s without sin), Spouse of the Holy Spirit… you know… She’s a pretty big deal. :)

There are some saints who are holier than others, and Jesus himself said so. He said that some saints would be rewarded tenfold and some a hundredfold. The reward would be in function of the holiness of their deeds and lives. And some saints, besides Mary, are known to be “better” than others. For instance, it is believed by some theologians that St. Joseph never committed a mortal sin; it is also believed by some that St. John the Baptist was free from Original Sin in the womb, though not from Conception as with the case of Mary. Jesus said of John the Baptist “Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist.” 

Now having said all that, we can’t know which saints are better. There are countless “anonymous” saints who are forgotten, and we really cannot judge the holiness of souls. But there is no equality when it comes to merit and to holiness; everybody reaps what they sow, and no two saints sowed exactly alike.
