Abortion contraception statistics – News headline

abortion contraception statistics

At the Wilson Center in late October 2013 there was a conference on Facing the Challenge of adolescent pregnancy.

Today Good Counsel Network learned of a further drop in abortion statistics in the USA from RTE news. It would be tempting to become jubilant, especially when it is headlined by RTE. However, statistics often paint the picture that you want it to. So Good Counsel Network Ireland decided to go to the source of the newsworthy report and extract those facts that might not otherwise be made known. At the heart of the worldwide reporting on lower USA pregnancy termination rates is the Guttmacher abortion statistics. The report was just released on Saturday 1st February 2014. It makes for both encouraging, and discouraging pro-life news.

What are the encouraging abortion contraception statistics?

There does seem to be a strong indication that abortion procedures are in decline in the United states. According to the Guttmacher institute, from January 1st of this year, over 50% of US states have sanctioned enforceable health regulations on pregnancy termination centres. There is mandatory counseling with a focus on considering birth. Women now have to discern over longer periods, before going ahead with an abortion. There is also mandatory parental involvement in cases of juvenile pregnancies. The use of state Medicaid funds have been restricted to cases of rape or life threatening situations. With all these combined regulations, the abortion industry is finding it difficult to survive. Good Counsel Network volunteers will no doubt be encouraged by these developments. But this picture does not give a fair shade of the battle against abortion in the US.

What is the discouraging statistics

The abortion contraception statistics report seem to reveal a trend towards less abortion we agree. But this may be the result of highly developed contraceptive methods. The morning after pill is still abortion, but might not be considered as such in the Guttmacher report. While pregnancy termination statistics are reported as lower, the patient base seems fairly high. The abortion contraception statistics suggest that over 50% of American women will have an abortion. That is a significant number of women affected by what is a brutal health procedure. Good Counsel Network volunteers will have to continue the fight to reduce these figures. That said, the pro life voice is getting louder & louder.

Vladimir Putin a stop to abortion advertising in Russia

Abortion advertising ban in Russia is good news

Russia introduces abortion advertising ban thanks to some good counsel given by Vladimir Putin

This is welcome news in a world in need of good tidings. Good Counsel Network in Ireland have learned today of Vladimir Putin’s desire to reduce abortions in Russia. Here is a president that is showing great courage & leadership. Here is a man who is willing to show the world, that abortion is not the answer. The Russian president is very concerned about the population collapse in his country. He has signed into law, a ban on abortion advertising, as well as termination restrictions on health insurance cover. This bucks the political trend the world over. Its a world away from Obamacare policies.

Vladimir Putin is too good to be true

For all of us at Good Counsel Network, these developments in Russia are most welcome. We can scarcely believe a good politician has risen so high up the ranks. Putin would make an excellent Good Counsel Network Volunteer for Russia. He is a fine example to Ireland’s prime minister on how to implement policy. The abortion advertising ban puts Obama’s healthcare to shame. Vladimir’s support for women facing pregnancy is commendable. The abortion advertising ban will help prevent a population collapse from birth control methods¬†like abortion. The worldly wise may see things differently, Putin to them is a flash in the pan. For men versed in prophecy, the president is a stumbling block. Putin is simply too good to be true.

Are you a Godly leader like Vladimir Putin?

Good Counsel Network are looking for more volunteers to lead our ministry in these times. Your willingness to support women in crisis pregnancy is a Godly act. You can help end the culture of death, and herald a culture of life in our world. Every little helps, and as a team, we can support women who might otherwise opt for an abortion. If everyone was doing what God willed them to do, the world would be on fire. Vladimir Putin is a testament to this, for today the hearts of Godly Russian’s must surely be on fire. Get yourself trained up as a crisis pregnancy counselor and set Ireland ablaze. Contact us for more details.

Crisis pregnancy adoption vs abortion

crisis pregnancy adoption is an option in cases of unplanned conception

Life is precious. Even in the face of financial difficulty, crisis pregnancy adoption can be an option

Life is a precious gift, yet many people don’t realize it. In the culture of work hard play hard, there is little room for real quality of life. It has reached the point, that when pregnancy occurs, the work hard play hard system over rules child bearing. There is little room for more life in our secularized society. Crisis pregnancy adoption holds little currency. Abortion as the answer, quickly holds sway. The philosophy of modern society results in equality of life trumping quality of life. Contemporary living offers little in the way of giving women real support.

The culture of death compounded

Women facing crisis pregnancies find themselves surrounded with misplaced sincerity among modernist peers. A close confidant living in the “real world” suddenly knows best. Abortion is the answer, because life has enough struggles as it is. Motherhood can wait another day, besides work life puts bread on the table. Such placating advice can easily win over a crisis pregnant mother. They quickly arrive in a paralysis of thinking. For these pregnant women, abortion becomes the only show in town. They reflect eagerly with thoughts of starting over again afterwards. The reality of child rearing is outside there reach. The alternative option to choose life is beyond their dreams. Crisis pregnancy adoption rarely factors in their minds.

The culture of life spawned

Good Counsel Network believes it should be otherwise. That life is a precious gift and not a burden. The aftermath that comes with abortion is too painful. The advocacy for a quick termination of pregnancy, really is misplaced sincerity. Other forms of voluntary advice would prove more beneficial. There are better alternatives, even in the most difficult cases involving financial constraints. Crisis pregnancy adoption is rarely broached in contemporary society. Yet so many good parents would gladly adopt a child. So many married couples cannot realize their dream of rearing a family. So crisis pregnancy adoption is just one alternative for expectant women. It is also the last line of approach by Good Counsel Network. It is possible for crisis pregnant mothers to quickly realize their own dream of rearing children. This is where Good Counsel Network can really help. Contact us if you are interested in pregnancy counselling volunteering opportunities. Its a life affirming vocation.

Greg Clovis and Hugh Owen’s pro life visit to Good Counsel Network

Hugh Owen of the Kolbe Center and Greg Clovis of Human Life International take a pro life visit to Good Counsel Network in Ireland

Hugh Owen and Greg Clovis on their pro life visit Good Counsel Network Ireland

Hugh Owen of the Kolbe Center joined Greg Clovis of Family Life International for a visit to Good Counsel Network Ireland. The two men are devoted to the pro life cause, and are a testimony by their family examples. Both family men live the truth with their wives and children. Both men have been blessed by God with large families. Their Catholic pro life outlook enables them to receive all the gifts that God so dearly wants to impart to them. The Kolbe Center and Family Life International occasionally work together for the common good. Like the parts of the body of Christ working in tandem, increasing optimized bodily functionality.

Where does Greg Clovis fit into the pro life ministry equation?

Greg Clovis is the director of Human Life international UK, aka Family Life International. HLI is a world recognized Catholic pro life ministry founded by Fr Paul Marx. Mr Clovis arranges many pro life & pro family seminars in the UK. He is the father of 10 children, 4 of whom have entered religious life. For a Catholic Dad, Greg Clovis is obviously doing his maths right. He desires for all Catholics to know their faith well, which channels into a Catholic pro life ethos. This year Greg has arranged two successful conferences in London inviting international speakers such as Hugh Owen and Michael Voris. Mr. Clovis’s composite pro life approach allows for a wider audience catchment that offers something for everyone. Good Counsel Network UK attend these conferences looking to both learn from them and win over pro life volunteers.

Where does Hugh Owen fit in to the pro life ministry equation?

Hugh Owen has a very unique pro life story that runs like a potentially good Arcadia movie production. His father, Sir David Owen was the 1st ever general secretary to International Planned Parenthood. Sir David died suddenly in the 1st year of holding this position, which led his son Hugh towards the Catholic Church. Hugh Owen later noticed the link between evolutionists philosophy, and the pro-choice ideation. For this reason and more, Hugh set up a counter evolution ministry. The Kolbe Center is the counter evolution ministry that provides a platform for the spread of pro life virtues and a pro Catholic society.
