EU Gives Poland 24-Hour Deadline to Take in Migrants

This as the country’s bishops and leaders consecrate Poland to Immaculate Heart of Mary

by Trey Elmore

DETROIT – The European Union is giving the nations of Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic a 24-hour deadline to take in refugees under the E.U. migrant sharing plan or else risk being referred to the European Court of Justice and face fines. E.U. Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos has said that the central European nations have ignored the E.U., telling them to take their share of the Muslim migrants pouring into Europe.

The E.U. agreed to take in 160,000 migrants, distributed across nations in proportion to each nation’s size and wealth. Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymanski said the move by the E.U. serves to only worsen existing European divisions on the issue of migrants. “From the political point of view, this action … unnecessarily heats up political tensions of which there are already too many in the European Union.”

He further added that Poland was prepared to legally defend itself, “If necessary, Poland is ready to defend its legal arguments in court.”

In April, Poland’s Law and Justice Party (PiS) initiated the construction of camps made of converted shipping containers, reversing the course of the previous government, which agreed to a share of 7,000 asylum seekers.

“When it comes to reducing the chances of Poland being hit by [Islamist] terror attacks, the only proven method is to not allow in Muslim migrants,” said Ryszard Czarnecki of Poland’s center-right Law and Justice party.

Speaking on the subject of Islamic migration and attacks in the U.K., Czarnecki criticized British tolerance of Islamist Muslim leaders who are not deported once identified. “With regards to Britain,” he said, “we have already told them on several occasions they need to deport not tolerate radical migrants.”

“If a radical Muslim cleric in a mosque calls on his brothers in the faith … to fight the infidels, well, I think that there are grounds to expel such an imam,” Czarnecki said.

The importing of migrants in the fashion of Western European nations is extremely unpopular in Poland, with a recent poll showing 74 percent of Poles do not favor bringing in migrants from Africa or the Middle East.

Poland stands out in Europe as one of the few remaining nations with a thriving Catholic life. The home of Pope St. John Paul II, St. Faustina and St. Maximilian Kolbe, Poland is still 87 percent Catholic, according to the CIA World Factbook. Not surprisingly, the country’s bishops made an act of recognition of Christ as King of Poland, Church Militant reported last November.

The act of recognition read in part,

We profess in face of God and Earth, that we need your rule. We profess, that you and only you have holy rights to us that never expired. Therefore, with humility we bend our heads to you, the Lord of the Universe, and we recognize your rule over Poland and our whole nation, that lives in the motherland and away in the wide world. Hereby, Poland in the 1,050th anniversary of its baptism, solemnly recognizes the rule of Jesus Christ.

Church Militant reported that the Polish bishops, in fidelity to the teaching of the Church and of Our Blessed Lord, a priest representing the Bishops’ Conference affirmed that the Pope’s Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia does not change Church teaching “in the case of Holy Communion for people who live in non-sacramental relations.”

Most recently, Polish bishops on Tuesday, in the presence of Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Beata Szydło, consecrated Poland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Act of Consecration contains references to true marriage and false tolerance. It reads in part, “Mother of the Holy Family of Nazareth, guardian of Polish families … we want to do everything necessary to defend the dignity of women and support spouses’ faithful perseverance in the holy sacramental relationship. We commit ourselves to defend marriage established by God and not to give a hearing to whispers of the evil spirit, encouraging us to abuse the freedom to pursue and misunderstood tolerance.”

Ireland’s Abortion Ban Under Attack

Pro-Life Campaign: “Either we protect every human life or we end up protecting none”

by Anita Carey

DUBLIN, Ireland – The abortion lobby in Ireland is using the latest statistics and ruling from a U.N. committee to garner support for legalizing abortion in the case of presumed fatal birth defects.

After Tuesday’s ruling by the United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) calling Ireland’s ban on abortion a human rights violation, Leo Varadkar, the Minister for Social Protection, confirmed yesterday he would be calling a referendum next year to review the Eighth Amendment, the 1983 constitutional amendment designed to strengthen and protect the Offenses Against the Person Act, banning abortion.

There have been a few high-profile legal cases over the past few years used to garner sympathy for legalizing abortion in the cases of birth defects such as those of Amanda Mellet and Siobhán Whelan. Both women wanted to abort their babies because of serious birth defects that were likely to lead to stillbirths.

Whelan claimed she had to travel to England for a fatal injection to kill her baby before she delivered it instead of waiting for “nature to take its course” as was recommended by her doctor. After the procedure, she was helped by the New York Center for Reproductive Rights to file a complaint with the UNHRC.

The UNHRC found the Irish Republic’s ban on abortion violates human rights, claiming women are subjected to cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment by having to travel to the U.K. to kill their babies. Whelan was awarded 30,000 euros for reparations and Ireland was told to reform its laws to ensure other women do not face human rights violations.

Pro-life advocates claim these rulings have no basis in law. Cora Sherlock of the Pro-Life Campaign explains, “Today’s remarks from the UNHRC is not a court ruling.” She says, “Ireland is perfectly entitled to determine its own laws in this area, and it is outrageous for the Committee to interfere in Irish democracy by ordering us to introduce a procedure which ends human life.”

“The UNHRC is behaving like the international wing of the Irish abortion lobby,” says Sherlock, pointing out the U.N. attacks Ireland’s abortion laws regularly, but that they never criticize the abortion industry’s violations, claiming they:

[H]ave never, for example, expressed a single word of concern or criticism at the barbaric abortion practices in countries like England and Canada where the ghastly and gruesome practice of denying medical attention to babies born alive after botched abortions is tolerated and routinely happens. Any committee that turns a blind eye to such horrific abuses is in no position to lecture Ireland on its laws.

Sherlock also takes issue over the UN’s ruling for determining “unborn babies with a life-limiting condition are worthless and undeserving of any protections in law.” Sherlock continues, “The UN, however, has no right in the name of human rights to make a value judgment on which lives are valuable and which ones are not. Either we protect every human life or we end up protecting none.”

Still, last year 3,265 women from the Irish Republic traveled to England and Wales for abortions. These accounted for almost 68 percent of the foreign abortions in the UK last year. These numbers are down from the 3,451 Irish babies aborted in 2015 and the 6,673 Irish babies killed in 2001. Sherlock saying the decrease is “a very welcome development.”

  1. With 635,000 active and reserve forces in place, I doubt Poles are worried by threats from the chief rabbis in the gilded castles of a badly hemorrhaging Euroweenie fantasy land.
