Pro Viata; Exista alternative !


DSC_1022                                                                                                                             Este foarte usor sa identifici o problema. Aproape oricine poate identifica o problema.  Este primul pas spre rezolvarea unei probleme, identificarea ei.

Multe vocii din societate acuza sustinatorii Pro viata ca nu facem nimic altceva decat sa identifica doar o problema a societatii de astazi, dar nu avem nici o solutie , ca nu facem nimic altceva decat sa aratam cu degetul , dar nu ne implicam concret in procesul de rezolvare a problemei identificate.

Din acest motiv , vreau sa afirm , ca noi , cei care sustinem dreptul la viata, nu vrem numai sa identificam o problema, Noi  venim si cu solutii.  Vrem sa fim parte a procesului de rezolvare a acestei probleme si ne dorim o implicare activa.

Solutia pe care o propunem, alternativa pe care o promovam este ADOPTIA. Adoptia este o alegere nobila. Adoptia  da dreptul la viata unei finite umane. Adoptia te va ajuta sa traiesti cu o constiinta curata si fara regrete. Adoptia  poate aduce fericire si viata in caminul unor oameni care isi doresc copii.

Pentru a opri avortul, pentru a opri crima, exista solutii, exista alternative. Adoptia este una dintre ele.

Datorita acestui lucru, ne dorim o tara , ne dorim o Romanie unde:

–         Sistemul medical sa recomande orcarei persoane care doreste sa faca avort, un timp de consiliere  cu personal calificat , consiliere unde persoana sa inteleaga riscurile si implicatiile morale a  avortului, precum si existenta alternativelor pentru situatia  de fapt.

–         Clasa politica sa   promoveze o politica care  sa  favorizeze viata! In primul rand  ne referim aici la schimbari care trebuiesc efectuate in sistemul legislativ a Romaniei, pentu ca  adoptia sa fie favorizata si posibila. Fiecare sustinator proviata, este dator moral sa urmareasca valorile si princiipiile , partidului, sau politicianului pe care il investeste cu incredere prin votul sau.

Ne dorim o Roamanie unde viata si dreptul la viata sa fie respectat. Ne dorim o Romanie unde valorile care stau la baza unei societati sanatoase sa fie respectate si promovate.

Cu ajutorul lui Dumnezeu , impreuna,  putem construi o astfel de Romanie!

Unde o fi Biserica Ortodoxa din Rusia?









Toti asistam, in special in ultimele luni, la desfasurarea evenimentelor din Ukraina, Rusia si mai nou in Krimeea. Atentia noastra a fost mutata progresiv de pe Maidanul din Kiev , in Simferopol si Krimeea.  Astazi domnul Putin, a iesit „triumfator”sa anunte victoria si anexarea regiunii Krimeea la Federatia Rusa!

Faptul ca Rusia si presedintele Putin incalca suveranitatea unei tari, respectiv Ukraina, nu ma mira deloc. Ba mai mult, cred ca Rusia e in stare de mult mai multe,… asta e o alta discutie.  Ce ma uimeste insa e un alt lucru. In tot acest timp nu am vazut, citit sau auzit de nici o pozitie oficiala a Bisericii Ortodoxe Ruse fata de situatia data. Am vazut preoti de partea protestatarilor pe Maidan. Am citit si vazut indemnul Papei la rugaciune pentru Ukraina. Dar nu am vazut nimic si nu am auzit nimic, nici o luare de pozitie oficiala a Bisericii Ortodoxe Ruse, sau chiar Romane.

Unde o fi Biserica Ortodoxa Rusa cand asa multe lucrurii se intampla acasa la ea? Oare sa accepte printr-o tacere vinovata  tot ce se intampla?

10 Reasons Not to Have an Abortion

imagesby Krisi Burton Brown | Washington, DC | |

1) It compounds tragedy.
Sometimes the circumstances surrounding a pregnancy are tragic. Perhaps the woman was raped. Maybe the baby has been diagnosed with a defect. Or the woman’s health might be at risk. However, one tragedy is not answered with another. We do not erase a rape by killing a child. We do not cure a baby by taking his life. And we do not avoid all health issues by avoiding the reality of another human being.
Women who have been raped must be compassionately cared for. But compassionate care does not include executing a woman’s child. Parents facing a difficult prenatal diagnosis must be given real facts and directed to others with helpful experiences. They must not be forced into a quick choice for abortion or urged to take the life of their child instead of giving her a chance to defy the odds. Women with high-risk pregnancies must be treated by real medical professionals. But treatment does not include intentionally killing a child. (If a child dies during the course of treating the woman – i.e., during chemotherapy for cancer, removal of an ectopic pregnancy, etc. – this is not an abortion.)
2) It takes innocent lives.
Science could not be more clear. Unborn human beings are living, separate, and unique. From the moment of fertilization – better known as conception – a new human life is in existence. Ending this life is not ending “potential.” It is ending a life. We would do well to understand the modern science that reveals the humanity of the unborn. (Here is a scientific report, quotes from textbooks, photos, and a video.)
3) It violates civil rights.
Civil rights are violated when people are deprived of their basic rights in a discriminatory fashion. Unborn children aredeprived of life – the most basic right of all – simply based on their location (their mother’s womb) and their developmental status. This isdiscriminatory, inhuman, and cruel.
4) It punishes innocent people.
A child does not deserve to die for the crimes of his father. A five-year-old cannot be killed because his father is a rapist. A five-month-old unborn child should not be allowed to be killed for the same reason.
A child does not deserve to die because her mother and/or her father were irresponsible. A child is completely innocent. A child did not decide that his parents would have sex or that they would use ineffective contraception. An unborn child is always innocent and should never be punished.
5) It can harm women.
Real-life stories demonstrate again and again that abortion harms women. Harm comes in a variety of forms – mental, emotional, relational, and physical – and in some cases, women’s lives are lost through abortion. They can also experience the loss of their fertility or an increase in miscarriages after an abortion. To find out more, check out this study, this paper, this compilation of stories, theseexperiences, and these stories.
6) It is damaging to relationships and families.
Anytime a family member dies, the rest of the family is affected. And this is true of abortion. A real, living, irreplacable child has been killed, and the parents and siblings are damaged. Fathers attempting to stop abortions should read this article. Siblings who need a place to express their pain should go here. And for more information on how abortion damages relationships, read this and this. Many women who abort just to convince their guy to stay with them find that they are left alone anyway, shortly after the abortion. Abortion is never the answer to a successful and loving relationship.
7) It never goes away.
No matter how hard we try, we can never erase what abortion does. Abortion takes – it kills – an innocent human being. Time does not erase murder or ease the reality of what it is. Abortion is a cruel tragedy, but it is also a choice that should never be made. Such a choice stays with us forever.
For anyone who has already participated in abortion, while there is no way to change your past, there is a way to heal from it. Check with your local pregnancy resource center for post-abortion recovery programs. You can also look into Rachel’s Vineyard or Ramah International. Also, check out this sermon by Mark Driscoll, in which he discusses how “Jesus died so murder could be forgiven.” Recovery, hope, and healing are always available.

8) It creates new problems.
Some people believe that having an abortion and ending a child’s life will solve their problems. And in the immediate present, it may appear that the problems have been erased. Perhaps college becomes an easier option, maybe parents never find out that their daughter was pregnant, or possibly an affair remains undiscovered. But in reality, abortion only hides problems – it doesn’t solve them. Many women finish college while still giving life to their baby. Many parents are far more accepting and loving than their daughters believed possible. And the truth is better than a lie, when a lie would cost an innocent person’s life. In the end, that’s what this is really about: our problems are not only solved through killing an innocent person. Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right. And just because it’s often a hidden choice doesn’t mean it won’t stay with you forever.
9) It avoids responsibility.
Abortion is sometimes used as an easy coverup for a one-night-stand or a solution to a relationship gone bad. However, when two adults make the choice to participate in an activity known to create babies, these adults must accept responsibility. Contraception can fail. The best planning can fall apart. But responsibility should not be avoided at the cost of an innocent child’s life.
Responsible people have to make hard choices sometimes. Timing may seem bad and circumstances might be difficult. But this does not justify killing an innocent person. Choosing to raise a child is responsible. Choosing adoption for a child is responsible. But choosing abortion and denying life to a child who already exists is irresponsibly – and irreparably – wrong.
10) It’s not empowering or liberating for women.
As a woman who considers herself a feminist, I find it appalling that abortion is classified as part of “women’s rights.” It is not my “right” to kill my child. I should not be the only person who has the power to order my child’s execution at the hand of an abortion doctor. Letting my child suffer a deathin which her spine is sucked into a tube or her limbs are torn apart or her heart is stopped through poison is not empowering or liberating. These choices ought not to be choices at all. They are cruel tragedies for all involved, and they should not be permitted in a civilized nation. Women do not receive freedom through the blood of their children.
All women should understand exactly what abortion is.


5 Things You Should Know About Putin’s Incursion Into Crimea

by Greg SATELLcrimea

Since the closing ceremonies at the Sochi Olympics concluded, Vladimir Putinhas done his best to make clear that he intends to make things as difficult as possible for Ukraine’s new interim government.

First he ordered massive military exercises, involving some 150,000 troops, on Ukraine’s border.  While some observers noted that not enough medical units were included to indicate an invasion, it was clearly a provocative act.

Yet, even more worrying has been his actions in Crimea, a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine, which almost perfectly mirror his actions in the run-up to the Russia-Georgia War in 2008.

What Does The Future Hold For Ukraine?

Pro-Russian separatists, wearing military uniforms without insignias, seized government buildings, airports and communication hubs in the region.  Then Russian troops were put on alert to “protect their citizens” in the area.  Crimea’s new Prime Minister—himself a Russian citizen—has appealed for Russia’s help.

Now, in what seems to be a false flag operation, Ukraine’s forces have been accused of attackingCrimea’s Interior Ministry. A referendum has been scheduled to decide whether the region will stay in Ukraine or become part of Russia. The Russian Parliament has approved the use of military force in Ukraine and to recall their Ambassador from the US.

Last night President Obama warned Putin of costs for further actions in Crimea and the situation is bound to intensify.  Here’s what you need to know:

1. What Is Crimea?

As noted above, Crimea is a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine, which means that while it is part of Ukraine’s sovereign territory, it is largely self governed.  A beautiful place located on the Black Sea, with rugged mountains leading to sandy beaches, Crimea is a popular tourist destination.

It is also a tricky place politically.  In 1954 Khrushchev decreed that it become part of Ukraine, a move that many in Russia still see as illegitimate.  Just over half of the population are ethnic Russians, a quarter are ethnic Ukrainians and most of the remainder are Crimean Tartars who, having been deported by Stalin in 1944, are fiercely anti-Russian.

In 1992, after the collapse of the Soviet Unions, Crimea decided in a referendum to join the newly independent country of Ukraine.

2. Why Russia Wants It

Crimea looms large in Russian history.  It was the site of the Crimean Warfought in the 1850’s against the French, British and Ottoman Empire . Although Russia lost, the bravery of its soldiers is still a source of Russian pride, much like The Alamo in Texas.  Its resort city of Yalta hosted thefamous talks between Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill.

Yet Russia’s interests in Crimea go far beyond nostalgia.  As important as the region is for Russian pride, as the map below shows it looms even larger in the geopolitics of the region.

The naval base at Sevastopol, on Crimea’s southwestern tip, is Russia’s only warm water port and its primary means of extending force through the Mediterranean.  It has been alleged that the port city has been used extensively to supply Bashar al-Assad throughout the current civil war in Syria.

And while the lease agreement with Ukraine regarding the base remains valid until 2047, the majority of the Black Sea coastline is held by NATO allies except for Georgia on the east, which is actively seeking NATO membership, and Ukraine in the north.

Put simply, without a naval base in Crimea Russia is finished as a global military power.

3. Why Ukraine Wants It

Crimea, it should be stressed, is sovereign Ukrainian territory.  The region chose to become part of Ukraine, it’s home to a large ethnic Ukrainian population and it’s where Ukrainians go to vacation in the summer.  In effect, Crimea is important to Ukraine in the same way that Florida or Texas are important to the United States.

While it’s true that many regions of Crimea, especially Sevastopol and the capital of Simferopol, are avidly pro-Russian, much of it is not.  The Tartars especially do not want, under any circumstances, to become Russian citizens.

There is also the matter of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, in which Ukraine agreed to give up its nuclear weapons and Russia vowed to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity.  By violating the treaty, Putin is signaling that all agreements signed during Russia’s period of weakness in the 90’s are null and void.

4. What We’re Doing About It

Unfortunately, if Putin wants to take Crimea, there’s very little Ukraine, the US or NATO can do about it.  Russia has ample military assets in the area and it is doubtful that a shooting war will break out.  Any free and fair referendum regarding Crimean sovereignty would be close, but Putin will surely put his finger on the scales, ensuring victory and giving him a veneer of legitimacy.

President Obama held an unscheduled press conference on the events in Crimea yesterday, expressing deep concern and warning Putin that “there will be costs.”  There is an intense diplomatic effort underway, involving both Russian and Ukrainian officials, as well as European allies.  Again, if Putin is determined, none of this will be effective.

Yet, the West is not wholly without leverage either.  While it went mostly unnoticed in the American press, Obama made an unscheduled stop to Vice President Biden’s meeting with Georgia’s Prime Minister Garibashvili and expressed support for creating closer ties and for its aspirations of full NATO membership.

It is this last move that may be the most significant.  Russia is no longer a great power.  While its military retains some important capabilities, its army is largely made up of  ill-equipped and poorly disciplined conscripts, whose families lack the means for them to avoid service.  In the 2008 war, Georgia shot down nearly 20 of its planes, more than the US has lost since Vietnam.

5. What Will Be The Consequences?

If Putin does annex Crimea, it will surely bring international condemnation and, quite probably, some form of implicit or explicit trade sanctions.  With its weakened economy, that is not something that Russia can easily afford and a downturn can be expected.  If the price of oil drops 15%-20%, the country could suffer a crisis on the level of what it endured in the 1990′s.

Putin will also see a military buildup in his backyard.  NATO membership for Georgia, with the advanced weapon systems and training it will bring, will surely degrade Russian national security. The port of Batumi (see map above), could also serve as an important military asset.

Perhaps most importantly, annexation of Crimea will mean that Putin has lost Ukraine for good.  It will be a transgression that will not be forgotten or forgiven and will speed up European aid and integration.

The Crimean Tartars, with their deep hatred of Russia, will resist Russian sovereignty, possibly resulting in a situation similar to the one in war-torn Chechnya.  The Russian President is, in effect, sowing the seeds of conflict for decades to come.

And that is what is so worrying about Putin’s latest moves.  They show that he is clearly a desperate man, willing to make a clean break with Ukraine andEurope, risk an acceleration of Georgia’s membership in NATO—an event that he wants to avoid almost as much as losing Ukraine—cripple his own economy and suppress yet another indigenous population. All for little tangible gain.

It appears that Putin feels that he has nothing left to lose
