Minnesota Abortion Bill Passes (with a little help from a professor at St. John's University)

Today Governor Tim Walz signed one of the bloodiest abortion laws in the world – a law which rivals those of China and North Korea in sheer brutality. The new law will make it a "fundamental right" to have access to abortion, thus solidifying Minnesota's status as a “safe haven” for the barbaric procedure right up to the moment of delivery. “Safe”, that is, for everyone other than the babies in question.


Recently on Remnant TV, I laid out my personal position on this demonic blood ritual. Some viewers complained that my position was too brutal, too violent. But my thinking is that it’s not brutal enough: 

This aggressive abortion bill, by the way, passed the Minnesota Senate by just one vote, having passed  down party lines - 34 votes in favor to 33 votes against.  One of the votes in favor came from St. John’s University professor, Aric Putnam, who has taught at the “Catholic” St. John’s for many years and is now a newly-elected Minnesota state senator.

In other words, the bill could have been stopped if this senator, who is also employed at a Catholic University, had voted no. 


One of our readers asked a few questions about this earlier today – questions which I could not readily answer. Perhaps someone at the chancery office could take a crack at it.

My correspondent writes: “As a Catholic, I’m wondering how this supposedly Catholic school can employ professors that publicly push an agenda that is directly contrary to our faith.  How does our newly-appointed bishop feel about this? Bishop Patrick Neary is located only about thirty miles from the University of St. John’s in Collegeville in the diocese of St. Cloud, MN. Will there be a comment from the bishop? Does anyone in the Catholic Church even care what goes on in Catholic universities anymore?”

Good questions, and ones that, it seems to me, Catholic parents of students at St. John’s  have a right to ask: Who is teaching our children at these supposedly “Catholic” universities, and what agendas are they pushing?  The sheep would like to know.

There’s more to being a good shepherd than merely warning against climate change. What about all the dead babies? They will never get the chance to “walk together” with anyone, since their “journey” ended in a dismembered bloodbath…with nobody “listening” to their cries of pain. Bishops tell us to listen to the cry of Mother Earth…but what about the silent screams of aborted babies?  Who’s listening to them?
