Similarities between the Brain and the Universe*

Similarities between the Brain and the Universe*

One should be careful in saying what this means, without understanding the essence of it, and that requires stepping outside science…

We often speak of the universe being a reflection of ourselves, and point to how the eye, veins, and brain cells mirror visual phenomenon in the natural universe. As above so below right? Well check this out. How about the idea that the universe is a giant brain? The idea of the universe as a ‘giant brain’ has been proposed by scientists and science fiction writers for decades, but now physicists say there may be some evidence that it’s actually true (in a sense).

The Study

According to a study published in Nature’s Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain – with the electrical firing between brain cells ‘mirrored’ by the shape of expanding galaxies. The results of a computer simulation suggest that “natural growth dynamics” – the way that systems evolve – are the same for different kinds of networks – whether it’s the internet, the human brain or the universe as a whole.

When the team compared the universe’s history with growth of social networks and brain circuits, they found all the networks expanded in similar ways: They balanced links between similar nodes with ones that already had many connections. For instance, a cat lover surfing the Internet may visit mega-sites such as Google or Yahoo, but will also browse cat fancier websites or YouTube kitten videos. In the same way, neighbouring brain cells like to connect, but neurons also link to such “Google brain cells” that are hooked up to loads of other brain cells.

“The new study suggests a single fundamental law of nature may govern these networks”, said physicist Kevin Bassler of the University of Houston. “

”For a physicist it’s an immediate signal that there is some missing understanding of how nature works,” says Dmitri Krioukov from the University of California San Diego.

“Here we show that the causal network representing the large-scale structure of space-time in our accelerating universe is a power-law graph with strong clustering, similar to many complex networks such as the Internet, social, or biological networks. We prove that this structural similarity is a consequence of the asymptotic equivalence between the large-scale growth dynamics of complex networks and causal networks.”

Evidence Proving California Drought Was Geo-engineered*

It has been curious that for as one has been hearing about the Californian drought, that one only hears about corporation exploitation of from a region that supplies most of the U.S. with food (8th largest economy in the world), but not once has the Federal government made it a national emergency i.e. without water the people will die… Then there is the domino effect across the country, less natural food, higher prices, and more unnatural food… the blind obsession with the Climate Change Agenda that for some reason they are not concerned with GDP – not content with bullying, threatening, and blackmailing countries using (weather control as a weapon? What was the extreme heat-wave this summer that melted roads and 100s were killed in India and Pakistan, but tailed towards Europe? Where is the mercy for one’s own?.

Californians accuse Gov. Brown of willful neglect, question why he permits massive chemtrail spraying program conducted over the entire state of California since drought began..

By Concerned Residents of California

The state of California is experiencing a relentless and historic 1200 year drought.  This unparalleled disaster has proven to be as crippling and destructive as any in American history.  If this slow-motion calamity continues to unfold, as it has over the past four to five years, it may go down as the most consequential drought in American history.

Jerry Brown has been governor of California since January of 2011, precisely when the drought began.  Quite curiously, he has taken up many other political issues with the fervour that many think he should have directed toward addressing the drought.  Instead, year after year has gone by with nary a peep from Sacramento … until 2015.

Brown has recently imposed a growing set of draconian water usage restrictions, the most strict controls ever enacted since the state was first incorporated in 1850.  These 2015 water control and restriction initiatives effectively constitute his first response since the drought began.  The point is that no other significant measures had been taken by state government which are either proactive or forward-thinking, constructive or provident.

More to the point, his various responses to this drought have been downright reactionary. Each and every government edict issued from the statehouse has functioned as a reaction to the behaviour of the water consumers of California.  The biggest corporate water users (and wasters), quite curiously, have been granted preferential treatment.  For instance, the fracking industry has been allowed to use massive amounts of water while the average resident has been significantly restrained in their usage.

Likewise, transnational water bottlers like Nestlé are offered very special treatment compared to the state residents and small businesses which cannot live without water. Why would Governor Brown grant such concessions to such a large water seller, especially one that will ship its bottled water to markets both in-state as well as out-of-state?

In the midst of the California drought emergency, the huge multinational Nestlé, seller of bottled water to the world, is providing one example of what must be stopped. Gov. Jerry Brown, while cutting public water use 25% by order in Sacramento, as in the rest of the state, has placed no limitation on Nestlé’s withdrawal of freshwater from aquifer springs nearby. Nestlé (alias here: the Arrowhead Mountain Water Company) continues to draw water at an 80 million gallon/year rate, paying 2 or 3 cents/gallon; it bottles the water in Sacramento, and sells it for roughly $16/gallon-equivalent to the city’s population, which has had its tap water use restricted. (Source: Is California’s Water Supply Being ‘Enronned’)

Problem — Reaction — Solution

The key role that Governor Brown has been playing throughout this geo-engineered drama is through the implementation of a purposely designed government reaction.  The operative word here is:

R E A C T I O N  !

Reaction” in this particular context refers to the infamous Hegelian Dialectic in which the Problem ~ Reaction ~ Solution formula is utilized as a means to manufacture a specific outcome.  There are a variety of state-desired outcomes in the case of this catastrophic California drought.  Each “Reaction” by the populace to the “Problem” of the drought is first manufactured with the daily involvement of the mainstream media (MSM).  Then, the state government kicks in with their predetermined “Reaction”. Ultimately, the perfect “Solution” will be presented when the requisite majority of citizens is sufficiently softened up to accept it without protest.

That a full-blown and unrelenting drought would be artificially fabricated in this manner is quite an extraordinary feat of “Problem”-making.  There are very good reasons for such an extraordinary endeavour, and Governor Brown’s leadership appears to be an integral piece of that rapidly unfolding agenda.

Particularly in view of Governor Brown’s enthusiastic signing of the recently passed mandatory vaccine bill are many Californians suspicious of his stewardship. Clearly, that single act of betrayal has cast many of his other dubious initiatives throughout his term under a distinctly negative light.

Simply put, there are now many residents who feel that Governor Brown is an active participant in a scheme to use the state of California as a means of introducing a whole new out-in-the-open geo-engineering regime.  The following in-depth essay reveals many of the details of this scheme, as well as those of related conspiratorial plots.

Was the California drought geoengineered to pass future ‘climate change’ legislation?

Given that California serves as the major agricultural producer for the nation, it does not get any more serious than a drought of this severity, particularly one so unremitting.  Simply put, this manmade disaster is shaping up to be the Catastrophe of the Millennium.  That may sound like hyperbole until one considers what is truly at stake.

Because California was established as the premier agricultural state of the nation, its importance to the food security of the USA cannot be overstated.  It also represents the 8th largest economy in the world, thereby making its HUGE contribution to the GDP both overwhelmingly significant to the economic health of this country and, therefore, incapable of being ignored.  Except that it has been ignored … consistently and quite incredibly, by both the U.S. Federal Government and the State Government of California.

As a matter of fact both President Obama and Governor Brown have been remarkably AWOL throughout this entire saga, with the exception of the passage a new draconian laws which have been deemed necessary in order to provoke a reaction from the people.  The complete lack of federal response to the California drought is clearly as deliberate and premeditated as it is a crucial part of the strategy of their overarching and clandestine agenda.

What is that agenda?

The agenda is a complex and convoluted one.  The primary purpose of the California strategy is to use the engineered drought as a means to impose an unlawful geo-engineering program … as a ‘remedy’ to this and all future droughts and deluges. There is now no question that the drought was purposefully geo-engineered over the course of Jerry Brown’s most recent tenure as governor.  He has never once publicly addressed the persistent chemtrails which have been sprayed incessantly over the past five years.

Governor Brown Has Repeatedly Received Scientific Evidence Indicating That the Drought Was Purposefully and Meticulously Geo-engineered

And yet in spite of this indisputable evidence, he has never responded to those parties who have provided the volumes of scientific research showing how it was geo-engineered.  The soil samples alone have revealed shocking levels of aluminum, barium and strontium. Each of these chemical elements just happens to be the major components of the standard chemtrail mix which is sprayed daily across the skies of America.

Of course, the resulting chem.-clouds then rain these noxious chemical agents on the land and water below.  Over years of chemtrailing these and other toxic chemical compounds begin to bio-accumulate in the vegetation and animals on land, as well as in the marine animals and plants in the water bodies.  Whole forests in northern California are now rapidly disappearing as both heat stress and lack of water conspire with these chemical contaminations to systematically weaken the trees.  Then various types of pestilence and other infestations eventually kill off square miles of once healthy trees.

Governor Brown is fully aware of this devolving situation and has done nothing to address it.  The chemtrailing continues as before despite so many bringing it to his attention.  In many locations the chemtrailing operations appear to have been considerably ramped up to an alarming level of intensity.  And still the Governor’s office has no response to those who have alerted him to the regularly chemtrailed skies and worsening emergencies across the state (e.g. wildfires in the form of forest fires, brush fires, grass fires; mudslides and flash floods; tree blight and plant pestilence; forest collapse; agricultural contraction; reservoir water loss, evaporating lakes and ponds, etc.).

Governor Brown has also received satellite imagery evidence conclusively documenting the role that HAARP technology has played in geo-engineering the California drought.[1] Satellite images do not lie, and leave very little room for misinterpretation for those experienced meteorologists who know how to read them.  The Brown executive team has received this irrefutable scientific evidence and more.  Nevertheless, they have refused to address it in any official manner, and have chosen to ignore it after deliberate consideration.

Governor Brown Has Witnessed The Same Chemtrails As Everyone Else — Why has he steadfastly refused to acknowledge them? 

Governor Brown goes back and forth to work every day just like every other Californian. He sees perfectly clear days turn into cloudy ones in a matter of minutes.   Within just an hour of intensive chemtrail spraying, which sometimes weaves an unmistakable tic-tac-toe board across the sky, chem.-clouds stretch across the previously blue sky, from horizon to horizon.

Because of this ge-oengineering phenomenon, the weather forecasters around the state have been made to look like total incompetents, as are the meteorologists in every state nowadays.  How does a state government properly function in a state where the weather is now completely unpredictable, except for those who really do control the weather?  Does the governor even consult with his chosen meteorologists during the ever-occurring disastrous weather events?  Does he ever convene his panel of climate experts to discuss the reasons for the new climatological trends criss-crossing the state?

Just as the current covert and illicit geo-engineering regime in California has exposed Governor Brown to be either another willfully negligent political operative who cares not a whit for the state or its residents.  Or, he is prominently configured within a pivotal scheme to use California as an example for every other state, should they fail to succumb to the coming ‘legalized’ regime of geo-engineering.

California does appear to be primary cog in the global machinery that was engineered to implement a New World Order to be administered by a One World Government that will be initially established to ‘fix’ global climate change.  The following article well explains both the plot and purpose behind this highly ambitious and fatally flawed scheme.

One World Government Initially Emerging As Global CO2 ‘Management’ Regime

It’s no accident that Jerry Brown’s tenure as governor has perfectly paralleled Barack Obama’s.  Both politicos have had carefully managed political images that would be used to corral the entire spectrum of Democratic and left-wing, liberal and progressive voters into a pen of blind acceptance and uncharacteristic compliance.  In this fashion a big chunk of the electorate has been used to manufacture consent around some of the most weighty issues that are preparing the way for this newly emerging and highly oppressive carbon management regime.


Through his actions and inaction, Governor Brown has violated the public trust.  The government of California has broken the social contract.  Especially due to willful neglect has Brown’s administration betrayed the people they have sworn to protect.  Likewise, Sacramento’s shirking of its most fundamental responsibility to safeguard the state represents a perfidious government that can no longer be tolerated.

In light of these serious transgressions against both people and property, Governor Jerry Brown must be recalled.  Not to recall him in a formal ballot would signify a profound failing of the people of California.  His conduct in office concerning this and other grave matters now demands an appropriate response from the voting public.

Just as another woefully inadequate Democratic governor (Gray Davis) was ignominiously recalled and replaced by a candidate from the opposition party, so, too, can Jerry Brown, be successfully recalled. Truly, this governor has morphed into a “corporate fascist”[2] whose treacherous leadership should not be ignored.  Surely, the people and the environment stand to suffer greatly from his corrupt administration and unprecedented lack of stewardship.

It has never been so urgent that a suitable replacement for Jerry Brown be identified.  Any prospective candidate must have the best interests of the people as his/her highest priority.  Therefore, it is highly advisable that a rigorous candidate search begin in earnest. Governor Brown must be removed from office with all deliberate speed before the state of California completely crashes and burns.

Islamophobes Found Themselves Surrounded in a Sea of Diversity*

Melbourne, Australia

A rally by an anti-Muslim group called Reclaim Australia attracted 50-60 protesters; however their demonstration was surrounded by 4,000 Melbourne residents who came out to oppose the hate faction.

60 further protesters from hard-line racist group the United Patriot Front joined the rally several hours later, but they were booed and jeered away from their protest site by jubilant counter-protesters, who chanted, “You’ll always lose in Melbourne,” and later held a victory march in one of Melbourne’s main streets.

Despite numerous scuffles and pepper spray being used by the police, Melbournites feel the protest went well.

“Melbourne is well-known as a thriving multicultural city, and we make millions of dollars a year from international tourism,” said one protester.

“There’s no way Melbourne people are putting up with fascism on our streets.”


From RT

Five people have been arrested over sporadic violence in Sydney, where right-wing activists from the ‘Reclaim Australia’ movement held a protest with police trying to keep them separated from a counter-rally by pro-tolerance protesters.

Some 150 Reclaim Australia activists gathered in Sydney’s Martin Place to protest against what they called the Islamization of the country, some of them wearing Spartan outfits and carrying Eureka flags, controversial symbols of rebellion in Australia.

Separated by a police-enforced buffer zone, a counter-protest standing for multiculturalism and against Islamophobia gathered.

The five were arrested over violent clashes between the two rallies, AAP reported. Police said at least two of the arrests may lead to charges.

We respect your right to protest and police will facilitate that and work to support peaceful demonstration on every occasion. But those who wish to come and commit offences, intimidate or be offensive will be arrested,” NSW Assistant Commissioner Alan Clarke told SBS News.

Similar pro and counter-rallies were held in other Australian cities on Sunday, including Brisbane, Perth, Hobart and Canberra, with no major incidents reported. In Mackay, Federal Coalition MP George Christensen addressed a Reclaim Australia rally, calling for action to defend the nation’s values.

“Our voice says we will not surrender, we will not sit idly by and watch the Australian culture and the Australian lifestyle that we love, and that is envied around the world … we are not going to see that surrendered and handed over to those who hate us for who we are and what we stand for,” he said.

Police said the Sunday rallies demonstrated a “good level of compliance” by the protesters, an improvement compared to the altercations of Saturday’s rally in Melbourne, when police had to use pepper spray to maintain order.

Reclaim Australia says it stands for maintaining Australia’s national identity and is against the spread of Islam in the country. Their critics consider them racist and accuse of neo-Nazi leanings.

“Claiming to be a patriot is one thing and being too patriot[ic] is another. We [Muslims] are a 2% minority here, so to say that radical Islam is taking over Australia is completely false, there’s no reality to it,” Waseem Razvi, president of Australia’s Islamic Research and Education Academy, told RT.

“A real patriot would not stand against minorities, but stand alongside the minorities, respecting the constitution and respecting the multicultural spirit of Australia,” he said.

The weekend protests come during this year’s Eid ul-Fitr festivities, when Muslims celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadhan.

Cuba Insists US Drop Blockade Ahead of Embassy Reopening*

Cuba Insists US Drop Blockade Ahead of Embassy Reopening*

Cuba should make as many demands to make it impossible for the U.S. to open an embassy for a U.S. embassy is a Trojan Horse…

Cuba is preparing to reopen its embassy in Washington for the first time in over 50 years, trying to normalize relations between the two countries.

If the United States does not fully remove its blockade against Cuba, relations between the two countries can never return to normal, Cuban Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel said.

The vice president’s comments come as Cuba prepares to reopen its embassy in Washington Monday – 54 years after Washington ended relations between the two countries amid the Cold War.

However, despite the diplomatic advances, Cuba has insisted that in order for relations to be considered fully normalized, the United States needs to lift the illegal blockade on the island that continues to hamper its economy.

“There cannot be a true normalization if US do not lift the blockade,” said the vice president Saturday in a speech at the National Council of Universities in Havana.

The Cuban leader added relations will never be normalized,

if [the U.S.] does not stop the illegal radio and television, if it does not return the illegally occupied territory of Guantanamo Bay and if there no change in the conduct of U.S. diplomats residing in Cuba,” in reference to the activities of U.S. diplomatic staff to aid the activities of opposition groups.

The vice president reiterated that deepening diplomatic talks with the U.S. does not mean that Cuba will change its ways of governing or abandon the Cuban Revolution.

The comments come after Gustavo Machin, the deputy director for U.S. affairs in the Cuban Foreign Ministry, warned that the U.S. may be seeking a “regime change” on the socialist island.

The Cuban embassy in Washington is set to reopen Monday, when diplomatic relations between the two countries will be formalized. Later that same morning, over 500 people are expected to attend a special ceremony when the embassy will raise the Cuban flag for the first time in over 50 years.

Five Holistic Doctors Dead and 5 More Missing*

Five Holistic Doctors Dead and 5 More Missing*

By Erin Elizabeth

I read about Dr. Baron Holt DC not long after he died less than a month ago near me here on the East Coast of Florida. Father’s day June 21st. Dr. Holt was coincidentally found the very same day  that Dr. Bruce Hedendal (also a DC found here on the E Coast of Florida)  was found  slumped over in his car. Like Holt, Dr. Hedendal was also extremely fit. Dr Hedendal been doing an athletic event earlier in the day before he was found in his car. Dr. Baron Holt’s obituary says he had a 3 year old child. Again, both Fathers were found dead on Father’s Day.

These two chiropractors who tragically died the same day in the same state, come  2 days after the death of Dr. Bradstreet MD who was found in a river in North Carolina with a gunshot wound to his chest. Previously Dr. Bradstreet had lived and practiced here on the East Coast of Florida as well.   I hesitated covering Dr. Holt’s story (pictured above) as I had no information and didn’t feel comfortable as there were no recent articles I could reference.

Until now.

From this glowing article  just out a mere 48 hours ago which refers to Dr. Holt as the faithful healer:

His unexpected death last month while on a trip to Jacksonville, Fla. has been a blow to his family and the community he’d created through his work. Though he had been struggling with recent health issues, none were thought to be life threatening by loved ones. His family is awaiting the results from an autopsy report.

I had searched before for any information but saw no statement from the family. Now that I see this article states his family felt he had no health challenge that was life threatening and was a mere 33 years old, I felt I could write this piece.

The article goes on to say

Holt’s practice, Revolution Chiropractic, had just celebrated its fifth anniversary this year. Highly fit at 33, he was deeply connected to his Christian faith, and his career as a Triangle practitioner was booming.

Holt took a holistic approach to treatment; he and his staff taught classes on nutrition, exercise, even aromatherapy.

In 2012, he travelled to London to work with the U.S. Olympic team, and could count Ultimate Fighting Championship athletes among the 500 patients his practice saw each week, said Brigitte Spurgeon, friend and Revolution Chiropractic clinical director.

When I read that he was “highly fit” well accomplished, even travelling to London to work with the Olympic team and already emerging as a prominent natural chiropractor, I feel that it’s my duty to report on his sad  untimely death whatever the cause.

Again, our hearts go out to his family, friends and loved ones and we hope they get to the bottom of this whatever the cause may be.  Just to give you a timeline I’m going to write it out as follows:

#1 June 19th– Dr Bradstreet, formerly of Florida, now practicing in Georgia was found with a gunshot wound to his chest in a river.  The small town locals ruled the death almost immediately as a suicide but many have their doubts.  This same day in Mexico- June 19th (the only case outside the US) 3 doctors were traveling to the State Capital to deliver some papers (we don’t know what they contained)  They were reported missing that day. Authorities said they found the bodies, but the family says those bodies look nothing like their family members and are demanding more tests and proof . A sad but riveting article was written about those details here.

#2 June 21st– Father’s Day: We have two chiropractors (both reported to be fathers)  in Florida, both on the East Coast both presumably  healthy and both described as very fit .  We still have no cause of death in the articles we can find on either one. A few people have contacted me about Dr. Hedendal, but admit that they were surprised by his death and still find it shocking. I’ve been given a few causes of death but am not certain and even the friends telling me weren’t confident this was the case.  Interestingly Dr. Holt (33 year old pictured above) lived in North Carolina which is the state Dr. Bradstreet’s  body (see story #1)  was found  2 days prior. Dr. Holt was visiting Jacksonville, Florida though when he died.  Dr. Bradstreet  (see story #1) now lived in Georgia and before that neighbouring state Florida.

#3 June 26th, Dr. Patrick Fitzpatrick MD goes missing. He was travelling from North Dakota to neighbouring Montana (which he did often as his son lived in Montana) and his truck and trailer were found on the side of the road. Searches have expanded, but authorities say it’s like he vanished without a trace. He’s 6′ tall, described as Irish with a goatee and details can be found on the links.

#4 June 29th– The beloved holistic Theresa Sievers MD was found murdered in her home.  Her co worker says she was known as the “Mother Teresa of South Florida. Her husband and children were in Connecticut at a family reunion. The authorities have been investigating for two weeks “around the clock”  and now say that it was targeted, not random, not a home invasion ,and when the facts come out “books and movies will be written about it” it’s that huge of a story.  On this very same day, June 29th,  Jeffrey Whiteside MD a pulmonologist went missing , vanishing when he simply “walked away” .  Dr Whiteside, known for his successful treatment of lung cancer, disappeared in Door County Wisconsin while vacationing with family. They say he was on foot and had no vehicle and numerous reports call it “mysterious” saying he too vanished without a trace. They’ve been searching now 2 weeks and even colleagues have joined in (along with many bloodhounds, drones search parties and helicopters) but not a shred of evidence in 2 weeks.

#5 July 10th– Lisa Riley DO (Doctor of Osteopathic medicine) is found in her home with a gunshot wound to her head. Her husband called it in 911 and has a prior record, and actually was charged with attempted murder on his ex Ms. King, before charges were eventually dropped. Evidence showed that there was gun residue was found on Ms. King’s  hand and not Mr Riley’s and his story collaborated but hers allegedly didn’t and kept changing. At least that’s what evidence showed at the time.

We hope all 5 missing doctors are found alive and well. Our hearts go out to the other 5 doctors who were found dead and we hope they get to the bottom of each one and find the killer or killers soon of those who were indeed murdered.

U.K. Tories’ Budget Would Institute ‘two-child policy’*

U.K. Tories’ Budget Would Institute ‘two-child policy’*

Life in the city!Britain’s Conservative budget, which limits child tax credits to a family’s first two children, is unambiguously anti-life and anti-family, say critics on both sides of the pond.

“Based on what I read, it seems as if the British government is trying to use incentives to ‘persuade’ lower income people to have fewer children,” says Dr. William Doyle, an associate professor of economics at the Catholic University of Dallas, adding that he considers these incentives “profoundly ‘anti-life.'”

“I hope you would consider it the same here, even if poor people having more children results in more government spending (a tax cut is just the same as a government expenditure from an accounting point of view),” Doyle wrote in an e-mail to LifeSiteNews.

The budget “is a further small step in a very long succession of moves” promoting a “feminist, economy-centred, anti-marriage, de-sexed, anti-family vision of society,” according to general secretary of Britain’s Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) Paul Tully.

“It sounds like the UK government is implementing a program of stealth population control,” noted Clinton Somerton of Canada’s pro-life, pro-family lobby group, Campaign Life Coalition (CLC). By limiting child tax credits

“to only the first two children born to a mother, they are discriminating against ‘subsequent children’ by denying them a benefit to which their siblings are entitled.”

Introduced July 8 by Chancellor George Osborne under Prime Minister David Cameron, the first Tory budget in 18 years has stirred controversy for a number of measures, but particularly for limiting child tax credits to the first two children in a family, effective April 2017.

After that deadline, in a measure designed to reduce the nation’s £12-billion welfare costs, families won’t receive tax credits or housing benefits for a third child or subsequent children, according to a analysis in the Mirror, which styled the budget as “George Osborne’s raid.”

The child tax credit can reach a maximum of £2,780 per child, states the Mirror, and “they’re mostly paid to in-work households earning less than £20,000.”

The budget allows for several exceptions – for example, multiple births as twins or triplets, disabled children, and children conceived in rape, “or other exceptional circumstances.”

Doyle sees the “the new UK tax code [as] part of the European obsession with fiscal austerity regardless of how it affects people’s lives.”

“One the one hand, there is an incentive built into the new code to encourage low income people to be less free in allowing sexual access to their bodies,” Doyle stated.

“On the other hand it provides women with a much greater incentive than before to seek abortions if they continue their ‘usual’ sexual practices and become pregnant as a result.

Somerton noted that while CLC is not opposed in principle to welfare reform, such schemes cannot be predicated on family size.

“While the stated purpose of the UK government’s policy may be to reduce welfare rolls, the fact is that certain children will be treated as undesirable and burdensome simply because of the order of their birth in a family,” he pointed out.

“Thus some children, based solely on the order of their birth, become the Dalits caste of UK society, and the implied preferential option for dealing with them before they are born will be government-funded pre-natal homicide (abortion).”

“How does this injustice, in principle, differ from the Chinese one-child policy?” Somerton asked, adding,

“While it may be less brutally enforced than in China, the chilling effect is still to create a second-class of human beings who are unwelcome and burdensome from the UK government’s perspective.”

According to SPUC’s Tully, the Tory budget’s child care and adoption measures reveal the “general anti-family tenor of the budget, and the government as a whole.”

“This budget doubles the free (state-funded) provision of nurseries for three and four year olds at a cost of around £5000 per child per year, and makes further childcare costs tax-free at an estimated cost of £2,000 per child, for 1.8 million ‘working families,'” Tully noted in an e-mail to LifeSiteNews.

The idea is clearly to get mothers back into the (tax-paying) work-force” and to “get children out of the home into state-funded child-rearing institutions, and providing state-funding to encourage this,” he contended.

The budget decrees that any parent, including a single parent, on welfare will from April 2017 “be expected to prepare for work from when their youngest child turns two, and to look for work when their youngest child turns three.”

Tully also pointed out that there is now a “big push to transfer children from short-term  foster care arrangements to adoptive arrangements,” at the same time “coincidentally” that adoption has been approved for same-sex couples.

“I wish politicians knew more about how sensitive people are to changes in incentives,” observed Doyle, an economist, “and I wish they cared more about creating ‘sinful structures’ that encourage one of the most brutal and detestable forms of human behaviour.”

He pointed to Pope Saint John Paul II’s encyclical Centesimus Annus as a source for wisdom in these matters.

St. John Paul referred to the “preferential option for the poor” and noted that the Catholic Church teaches that the “state must remedy the condition of the poor in accordance with justice.”

The state, however, cannot be expected to solve every social problem, and “the individual, the family and society are prior to the State,” wrote the pontiff, noting that “the State exists in order to protect their rights and not stifle them.”

CLC’s Somerton echoed this. “Government exists to advance the well-being of the people whom it serves,” he told LifeSiteNews.

“Creating a new structure of economic discrimination against certain children on the arbitrary order of their birth is a step backward.”

Miracle of Pregnancy: Couple Told to Abort or Die*

Rebecca Loretz and her husband Michael were accustomed to defying doctors’ advice in pursuit of their dream of having a large family. But this time was different.

After their second child had been born via c-section, doctors had strongly advised the couple not to have any more, due to the risk of uterine rupture. But the couple instead read up on all the relevant medical literature, and found out that the risk of rupture following repeat c-sections in a developed country is less than 1%. That was a risk they were willing to take, and they went on to successfully have six more children, all via c-section.

However, after their eighth child was born the couple realized they weren’t getting any younger, and the pregnancies were becoming progressively harder on Rebecca. After consulting with their spiritual director, they decided to delay having any more children for the foreseeable future.

But their efforts to use Natural Family Planning, which the Catholic Church teaches is the only moral method of spacing children, apart from total abstinence, didn’t go as planned. In May of 2013, they learned that they were expecting their ninth child.

“It was a real surprise to us,” Michael told LifeSiteNews.

“It was a really pleasant surprise for us, because we assumed that the course of that pregnancy would follow more or less the others.”

But that was not to be. A scan early in the pregnancy came back with a diagnosis of “scar ectopic” – the baby had attached itself to the scar tissue from Rebecca’s previous c-sections. The risks of carrying such a pregnancy to term, the couple was told, were catastrophic.

“We were told by the doctors that there was no hope for this baby,” says Michael, “that it was ectopic and that it needed to be aborted.”

Ectopic pregnancy is an extreme case that pro-life ethicists have wrestled with, with most concluding, based upon the so-called “principle of double-effect,” that it can be morally licit to remove the part of the woman’s body where the baby has implanted – typically the fallopian tubes – as a treatment to save the life of the mother. Although this treatment will certainly result in the death of the child, pro-life ethicists argue the treatment is moral, as long as causing the death of the child is unintentional. It would not, however, be permissible to directly abort the baby, such as by taking Methotrexate, a drug that expels the baby.

Working with their spiritual director, Michael and Rebecca refused the Methotrexate the hospital offered them, and also decided to fight for their child against the odds, telling the hospital that in case of complication, they should work to save both mother and child, or, in the worst case, one or the other.

However, the hospital had no plan B to using Methotrexate, as no other couple had ever refused the abortion. The doctors checked Rebecca into the hospital, and began intensively monitoring her, while putting heavy pressure on the couple to agree to the abortion.

A leap of faith

Over the next several days, various doctors and nurses came into Rebecca’s room, both singly and in teams, and tried to convince her to take the drugs that would end her baby’s life.

Michael recalls: “One doctor said to me, ‘You have a zero chance of this pregnancy ending in a baby and a very likely chance you could face the death of Rebecca. Is that what you want? You just don’t want to face facts and so you don’t want to listen to us.’”

Finally, after it became absolutely clear that there was no way the couple would ever budge, Michael recalls that medical staff actually became quite supportive, with some of them praying for them and their baby.

Rebecca and Michael received a brief ray of hope during a subsequent scan when the sonographer informed them that the pregnancy had been misdiagnosed. The baby was not scar ectopic, but rather cervical ectopic – the baby had actually attached itself to Rebecca’s cervix.

“Is that better?” Michael asked the sonographer hopefully. He still remembers the painful answer:

“No. That’s actually worse.”

But a third scan, much later in the pregnancy, did finally provide them with real hope, as the sonographer discovered that the baby appeared to be in the uterus, just very low down, and not necessarily on the cervix as originally thought. This lessened the danger somewhat, though not by so much that they were any less anxious.

The couple admits that the pregnancy was “very, very scary.” For Rebecca, the only thing that got her through was the knowledge that people all over the world were praying for her.

“I had to spend five weeks in the hospital before she was born,” recalls Rebecca, “because they were scared that everything was just going to explode. And when I went into the hospital I was, ‘Please God, please God, give me this baby.’ And then by the end of the five weeks, I was like, ‘Ok Lord, it’s your will. This is what I want, but I’m going to follow your will.’”

Finally, on November 1, 2013, after several bleeding scares, five weeks spent in the hospital, and a four hour surgery during which surgeons had prepared for the worst, their little daughter Philomena, their “miracle” child, was born – perfectly healthy.

In the process of delivering Philomena, the doctors were forced to remove Rebecca’s uterus, due to the fact that the placenta had grown right through the uterus. Although there would certainly be no more children in Michael and Rebecca’s future, the couple, and the baby they had fought, suffered and prayed for so much, had defied the seemingly impossible odds.

Rebecca was safe. And so was Philomena.

‘Dumbfounded’ by Pope’s c-section remarks

The devout Catholic couple credits the intercession of St. Philomena – a young girl who is believed to have been martyred in the Roman empire in the early 300s – for their daughter’s survival. The couple prayed to this saint throughout the pregnancy, and even promised to name their child after the saint, if she turned out to be a girl – a promise they gladly fulfilled.

In fact, they say that throughout their married life, they have striven to follow God’s will for their family, and have tried to be as “generous” as possible – often in the face of severe criticism from friends and family.

At the same time, says Michael, they have tried not to be reckless. With each pregnancy they have prayed, consulted with their spiritual director, and they have always intensively studied the medical literature to determine the risks involved, often finding that they were not as high as what their doctors had told them.

This, says the couple, was why they were so dismayed when on January 19 of this year, on a plane ride home from the Philippines, Pope Francis had singled out a woman whom he had met, who had had eight c-sections – one less than Rebecca.

The pope told reporters on the plane that he had “rebuked” the woman, saying,

“But do you want to leave seven orphans? That is to tempt God!”

Later during the in-flight interview, Francis returned to speaking of the woman, adding, “That is an irresponsibility. [That woman might say] ‘no but I trust in God.’ But God gives you methods to be responsible.”

Rebecca remembers her reaction when she first heard what the pope had said.

“I was a bit dumbfounded,” she says.

“I thought: ‘Oh no, that can’t be right. He must have been misquoted.’”

The reaction was shared by some of Rebecca’s friends, also mothers of large families. “We were all really quite stunned, because the women I was talking to also had

challenges with pregnancies. They believed, like us, that we were open to life, and that was what we were meant to be.”

When it became clear that the pope had not been misquoted, Michael says it felt as if they had been “kicked in the gut.” He admits, “we’re not particularly holy, so the first thing you think of is how that affects you.”

“I sort of just felt straight away, ‘How on earth do I now defend the existence of my family to others who already think that my life’s decisions have been not only wrong, but a sort of tyranny over the others?’”

Any parent of a large family is accustomed to receiving insensitive and sarcastic remarks about their family size. Michael said in his case this has been exacerbated because of the risks that his wife had taken during their pregnancy. People, he says, can’t imagine that there might be a “complicit, fruitful love there,” but assume that “here’s a traditionalist guy, who’s forced something on the family.”

“My first thoughts were when I’m in those sorts of conversations, what do I appeal to because now the leadership of my church, who usually provides a sound philosophical basis for what we’re doing, has sort of said similar things?” asked Michael.

“I felt isolated and sort of abandoned by the person who should be giving me the most support.”

While the pope subsequently apologized for the “confusion” that his remarks caused, the couple said they found the apology strangely unsatisfactory, since there was no clarification or backing away from the substance of his remarks.

The problem, says Michael, was the way the pope “cordoned off” even the possibility that a couple could prayerfully discern that God is calling them to be generous even in difficult circumstances, as well the lack of a clear guiding principle.

“If eight is too many caesarean sections, what is the number of caesarean sections that is acceptable? If this woman was irresponsible, what particular circumstance made that an irresponsible choice?”

For Rebecca, the effect has been to colour the way she receives the pope’s statements.

“In some ways I kind of look at what the pope says now and think, I have to kind of work out what he’s trying to say now. It might not necessarily mean what he says, because he might come out and clarify it later, or he might apologize for something later.”

Unnecessary abortions?

In the meantime, says the couple, they are simply striving to pass on to their own children their convictions about the meaning of vocation, and especially the married vocation.

“We’d really like them to be open to life and be as generous as they can be with God in their marriage,” says Rebecca.

We educate our children about the meaning of marriage and the purpose of marriage. And being open to life and seeing it as a sacrament and as a source of their happiness.”

They are also left wondering about whether their case might not be so abnormal, were medical science to view both the mother and her baby both as patients who deserve care, even when their interests seem to be in conflict.

In his efforts to absorb the medical literature, Michael was stunned to find out that of the 60,000 or so similar diagnoses since 1967, 99.7% of those have ended in abortion. The number of those women who hadn’t gone through abortion was “so small that they couldn’t really say what the outcome is.”

“With Philomena having come through, absolutely a fine, healthy baby, and my wife surviving what they predicted would be terrible, I wondered how many babies have been unnecessarily aborted.”

Science may never find out. But in the short time, their case had one positive result, as a sonographer with whom they dealt told them that he had presented their case to a medical convention, arguing that “hospitals need to be more accommodating of a conservative wait and see approach, even with diagnoses of this kind of ectopic pregnancy.”

And, of course, there’s their daughter Philomena, who is thriving.
