• GUILTY SILENCE

    Paedophilia is rampant in Europe, yet investigations are blocked

    Over the last few months in Germany, Great Britain and Belgium, there have been hundreds of arrests for sexual abuse against thousands of children. But the mass media has kept silent or condensed everything in "news briefs". The fear of investigating these stories (unless it involves the Church) is nothing new. Evidence seems to go missing, while those who do a good job are abruptly replaced and then trials end up being stalled. Germany had to acknowledge corruption within its police force and institutions, yet when someone is sentenced, the penalty is minimal. Why? Perhaps many countries would be shaken to their core.

    Forced to donate organs, even when still alive

    Britain has changed its organ transplant law. Now adults who do not explicitly refuse to donate their organs may become donors regardless. Italy has the same guideline. With tacit consent, there is a very high risk of handing over to the state living persons whose health is so compromised that it is preferable they be killed to save the lives of other healthier persons who, from a quality of life perspective, are deemed more worthy.

    Pavia, a cure that works, challenges media silence: “Plasma kills the virus”

    “Plasma kills the coronavirus.” The therapy developed by the Immuno-hematology Institute of Saint Matthew in Pavia is encouraging. In this exclusive interview with The Daily Compass given at the end of his experimentation, director Cesare Perotti reveals the positive results: “The treatment works; at the moment no one has died; the USA has asked for the protocols.” But nobody is talking about it: “There are other interests opposing us, but we will address these after the scientific publication.” This is how the shared treatment works, by “using” volunteers who have recovered to help heal those who are sick.

    Euthanasia in cases of dementia, a slippery slope sentence

    Along with moral problems, the Dutch Supreme Court's ruling to allow euthanasia for patients with dementia and unable to express their opinion fuels confusion. The Court leaves doctors with the interpretation of the written statements, increasing their doubts. However, there is a strong fear that this decision will not lead to a decline in cases of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

    More than 100 NGOs lead the assault on innocent life

    An open letter from over 100 powerful national and international NGOs (Human Rights Watch, Amnesty, CGIL, etc.) petitioned European governments to authorise abortions over the internet or telephone and to send abortion pills to take at home. In this very same period, several children's associations, including Save the Children, have asked the EU to treat "reproductive health" as a priority during the ongoing pandemic. In brief "human" rights for all, but not for the unborn.

    Disabled and elderly, euthanasia by Covid is a global fact

    Elderly and disabled people are increasingly at risk. In the USA, several states have announced that treatment for the coronavirus will not be accessible to everyone. Why is that? Lack of means. The same is said in Italy. And in Holland the health authorities are suggesting to those who are elderly to forgo treatment. A sign that the idea of a “social” euthanasia is spreading. This reeks of Nazism.

    The New Totalitarianism: No Cure for the “Homophobes”

    A new provision of the British National Health Service adds sexism, racism, and homophobia to patient violence as reasons for which paramedics may refuse to give assistance in non-urgent cases. This is an attack on freedom, especially religious freedom. Here’s why.

    Even Northern Europe is childless. Policies are not enough

    Iceland, Norway, and Finland have record low fertility rates, half of what they were 50 years ago, and couples are having children much later in life. These are the most disturbing statistics in a report on social, economic, and demographic conditions in Northern Europe. What is interesting is that these are the countries with the strongest pro-birth policies. It is yet another proof that economic and social policies do not provide the true answer to the problem of the declining birthrate.

    • THE FATHER OF A CHILD AT RISK OF EUTHANASIA

    “Midrar is alive and growing. Why are English doctors saying he’s dead?”

    Since last September Midrar Ali, 4 months old, has been in Saint Mary’s Hospital in Manchester, where doctors want to take him off life support. The hospital’s diagnosis is “brain stem death”. But the family dispute it. And the father, a biomedical scientist named Karwan, tells the New Compass: “My son’s heart is beating, his circulation is working. He perspires, keeps growing, and now weighs seven kilos. How can they claim he’s already dead?” On January 22 the hearing before the Court of First Instance ended, and now we are waiting for the verdict of the judge who will decide on Midrar’s life.

    France: the law that eliminates fathers gains ground

    Despite massive street protests, on Tuesday the French Senate began to debate a bill to extend artificial insemination to single and lesbian women. The final vote is scheduled for February 4th. Family associations and bishops highlight the absurdity of a text that eliminates the father figure and, therefore, creates orphans.

    Judas and Hell, Archbishop Paglia excommunicates Jesus too

    The recent comments of Archbishop Paglia, president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, caused such a stir. He decleared "heretic" whoever says that Judas is in Hell. But the Gospels, as well as many saints and popes, say the opposite. And also about the religious assistance to those who persist in asking assisted suicide, the words of Paglia contradict the Magisterium.

    "If you believe in life stand now to save Tafida and all disabled"

    "If the doctors say that Tafida could live for another 20 years and I say that I am happy to sacrifice my career to look after my daughter, why are the doctors trying to stop me? Just because she is disabled? " Shelina Begum is the mother of the little English girl living in a state of minimal consciousness at the Royal London Hospital which wants to switch off her life-support and prevent her from being transferred to the Gaslini hospital in Genoa. She was interviewed by the Bussola and launches an appeal to all religions to unite and fight for the disabled. Today marks the beginning of the week, according to the last hearing, when Judge MacDonald will issue his  ruling on Tafida’s life.
