What We Can Learn From Poland.

Poland is trying to forbid abortion altogether. No more “rape” rubbish, and the like. As if anyone could say to an unborn baby: “sorry, young chap, we would normally protect you; but you see, you weren't conceived in the right circumstances. Therefore, you will have to die”. Apart from this, I always thought this is the kind of thinking literally encouraging a certain type of woman (the type who aborts) to cry “rape!”.

Let us take some distance here, and observe the development of this country's legislation. Free abortion for all during Communism; then a law that left the door factually open in some cases, whilst accepting the principle of protection of the unborn. Decades later, as the old Commies die in greater number, the old Catholic soul of the Country tries to emerge, and to set things right.

There is, in this, a lesson for us.

In Western Europe and North America, Catholic thinking must be tirelessly promoted also, actually exactly, when it is in the minority, and ostracised by most. One generation sows, another will reap. The battle for one Country's soul is not won in ten or twenty years: it takes an inter generational effort.

The revival of sound Catholic thinking must start now; and even in that case, no fast victory is to be expected. We will die in the minority, the once strong grip of Catholicism over entire Countries now squandered for at least one generation to come by the madness of V II. But if we start the work now, we will hopefully die one day knowing that the once tender plant is growing strong, and has set root among good souls.

If you had said to an average Pole in 1976 that in forty years, Communism long destroyed, Poland would be veering toward a total abortion ban, the man would have considered you a nice dreamer. But he would not have laughed at you. Many, many brave Catholics had taken care that it is not so, even in the midst of a Communist regime!

2016 appears to be our own 1976 of sort. We must plant the seeds that might allow Europe to radically change course, and be it that in 2056, or later. We will never see our plan come to fruition, but this does not matter because our plan is bigger than us.

We will never see victory. Others will and, with God's grace, will fight for a return to Christian and Catholic sanity in 2056, when we are long six feet under and, hopefully, in a much better place.

Poland shows the way.

We must now learn to play catch-up.

  1. Every time I see a public figure take the position of No abortion except in the case of rape and incest,, I want to scream. How can they be so dumb as to not understand how this undermines the whole idea? It drives me crazy.

    • It’s like saying Target should now have their trannie policy because of safety reasons. It’s just illogical, dumb, ultimately self-defeating.

    • Your statistics on your site are interesting. I always use the number 0.032%; nevertheless, a very small number of people claim to be transgendered. As a registered nurse in a large NW US city, I have been exposed to a tremendous amount of strange behavior, often publicized, by ‘transgendered’ physicians, some with whom I worked. It does not matter how prominent these people are. It cannot change the statistics of suicidal or otherwise self-destructive behavior by these same people.

      I heard a story from a psychologist, of a delusional man who thought his left arm was trying to kill him, and he wanted it amputated. Every doctor refused to amputate his healthy arm. He finally tied a tourniquet around his arm until it became gangrenous and had to be amputated. The psychiatrist who had earlier treated him said that he should have investigated why this man thought his normal arm was ‘trying to kill him’. But these same doctors are not allowed to ask these alleged ‘transgendered’ patients why they believe they are not the gender that matches their chromosomes. They are required to cheerfully agree with them to be PC.

      It’s really very sad, since the suicide rate for these same people is very high…I believe slightly greater than 40%. I certainly wouldn’t wish that on anyone I know and love.

  2. Well said,sir….fight the good fight…

  3. Bravo Polish Catholics! Must be God chosen country. Deo Gratias.

  4. Indeed. The restoration has to start at some point, and it will take a long time to restore sanity. The example of Poland also shows that quite a few gradual steps will have to be taken until restoration is finally achieved.

    While we should never accept abortion in cases of rape, we will probably have to outlaw abortion with a rape exception before we get to full prohibition, as the Poles did, because culture changes slowly and law will change with it. The important thing is to never compromise the principle of total opposition to murder, even if one has to settle for less politically. As long as it goes in the right direction, even a tiny little step, any compromise is acceptable, because it means the next fight will start at a position more advantageous to us. As soon as it goes in the wrong direction, any compromise becomes unacceptable.

    • It might be necessary as a political compromise. But it is important that it is not accepted as ethical praxis.
      And I agree with this sort of “gradualism”. Look at the perverts: they start with “civil partnerships” and swear it will never become “marriage”. idiots are ready to believe that in this case it is acceptable to institutionalise perversion. The rest is history.

  5. My comment was intended for the Bruce Jenner post. I shouldn’t post when I get home from work….
