Am rugat pe organizatorii de la LifeSiteNews.com sa incerce sa il transmita online live. Mi s-a raspuns ca nu dispuneau de conditiile tehnice, dar vor posta inregistrari video:
„This is only the first Rome conference and so we were not able to take on such a technical challenge this time. However, we will likely present some video footage of the talks on LifeSiteNews in the near future.”

Eminenta Sa Cardinalul Burke:
“The attack on the innocent and defenseless life of the unborn has its origin in an erroneous view of human sexuality, which attempts to eliminate, by mechanical or chemical means, the essentially procreative nature of the conjugal act,” he explained. “This error maintains that the artificially altered act retains its integrity.”
“The so-called ‘contraceptive mentality’ is essentially anti-life,” he said. “Many forms of what is called contraception are in fact abortifacient, that is, they destroy a life which has already been conceived, has already begun.”
“The manipulation of the conjugal act, as Pope Paul VI courageously observed, has led to many forms of violence against marriage and family life,” he added, noting the rapid growth in pornography through the internet.
The cardinal said the “exponential” increase in the secularization of Western culture has in part been “due to a grave impoverishment or even lack of adequate catechesis in the Church during the past four decades.”
St. John Paul II, he said, emphasized the fact that the Church herself was in urgent need of evangelization. In order to remake the fabric of Christian society, said St. John Paul II, “what is needed is to first remake the Christian fabric of the ecclesial community itself.”
“Fundamental to understanding the radical secularization of our culture is to understand also how much this secularization has entered into the life of the Church Herself,” said Burke.
The same doctrine that some lives are ‘unworthy of life’ that led to the devastating genocides in Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia is at the root of the abortion holocaust and the growing push for euthanasia, says U.S. commentator George Weigel.

Speaking Saturday at the International Pro-Life Conference in Rome, organized by LifeSiteNews in partnership with Human Life International and Family Life International New Zealand, Weigel explained the devastating consequences of denying the right to life, which he described as the first of all human rights.
“If the state effectively asserts the power to declare some members of the human community – the unborn, for example – outside the circle of common concern and legal protection, then no one is safe, for no one has any ‘rights’ the state cannot abrogate,” he said.
“The result of this denial of the first of human rights, the right-to-life, was the same under both German National Socialism and Marxism-Leninism: the result was genocide,” he added.
He said it’s “something of a mystery” that Western democracies forgot the lessons of these 20th century totalitarian states in liberalizing their laws on abortion and euthanasia.
