Abortion in Europe

EUROPE IS MUCH
MORE
CONSERVATIVE
THAN PEOPLE THINK

Abortion laws in European countries are often
more restrictive than those in the United States
.

Andorra, Malta and San Marino do not allow abortion at all. Monaco and Liechtenstein allow it only when a woman’s health or life is at risk.

Fifteen European countries, including Italy and Spain, require a mandatory waiting period. In 12 countries, including Hungary and Germany, women must undergo mandatory counselling or receive mandatory information from their doctors before the abortion.

In Germany, abortion can only be done within 12 weeks of conception.

Catastrophic consequences

“A HATRED THAT WILL HAVE
NO END AND KNOW NO BORDERS”

One hundred and fifty years ago, on January 18, 1871, the German Empire was proclaimed in Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors, which the troops of the German states had just captured in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71.”

“The choice of January 18 for the proclamation that marked Germany’s birth as a unified nation was not accidental: it was the anniversary of the coronation in 1701 of the first king of Prussia.”

Tsar Alexander II of Russia warned Wilhelm, the Prussian king, that if the Germans forced France to concede long-held territory it would instill “a hatred between peoples that will have no end and know no borders” with “catastrophic consequences for all of Europe.”

New & improved! A multilingual blog — in Polish, Arabic, German, Turkish & English!

Since there are many varied people involved with this story, I am providing multilingual translations within the blog post, a first for me. I may do it more, since I think a blog in different languages is a cool idea.

I’ve settled on four translations of my original tweet: German, Polish, Turkish, and Arabic.

ENGLISH
Poland refuses to take Muslim immigrants. Can you blame them?

POLISH
Polska odmawia przyjęcia muzułmańskich imigrantów. Czy możesz ich winy?

TURKISH
Polonya, Müslüman göçmenleri almayı reddetti. Onları suçlayabilir misin?

GERMAN
Polen weigert sich, muslimische Einwanderer zu nehmen. Kannst du sie beschuldigen?

ARABIC
وترفض بولندا اتخاذ المهاجرين المسلمين. يمكنك إلقاء اللوم عليهم؟
watarfud bulanda aitikhadh almuhajirin almuslimina. yumkinuk ‘iilqa’ allawm ealayhim?

Forgiveness & prayers will not save us. We must be resolved to fight evil.

SENTIMENTAL PLATITUDES
BY WISHY-WASHY LIBERALS
ARE DISTURBING

Forgiveness requires asking for it & repentance. Those who do not correct the error of their ways will not receive it. Jihadists who terrorize and murder must seek it out in order to receive it. Until they do so, we are not obligated to forgive. In fact, it is dangerous. It is willfully blind of the dangers posed by Islamist radicals.

“Absolute Insanity!”

matthew-25-590x330

I’m sure the debate about the news of the migrants overwhelming Europe has been raging on Twitter for a long while. I’ve mostly just stayed above the fray.

But today I came across a man whose reaction was both sad and shocking. His commentary is so sheltered and insulated. Has he never met an exchange student or a traveler far away from home?

What idiot would invite strangers from another country/culture into their home? Absolute insanity!”

Well, people do it every day, on Couchsurfing, on Airbnb, via student exchanges, etc. There’s way too much fear in people. I have good friends who were once strangers to me.

Let me quote from the Bible, Matthew 25:35, the words of Jesus himself:

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
