This Is Why They Hate Us

Barbara Garcia Barbara Garcia

Remember the Catholic journalist, Barbara Garcia? I was thinking about her the other day when I read that Sandra Fluke is now running for California State Senate.  Back in July 2012, Lifesitenews’ Steve Jalsevac told us the story of how newlyweds Ignacio Cabezas and Barbara Castro Garcia had been crazy about getting married and wanted very much to be parents.

Four months into their first pregnancy, Barbara took a trip to the dentist complaining of a sore in her mouth. The dentist sent her on to a specialist, who diagnosed her with mouth cancer. The couple was presented with a conundrum: Barbara urgently needed life-saving treatment, but the treatment had the potential to harm their unborn child.

You know how this story ends. Look into the eyes of the young woman in the picture to the left.  You can see the spirit of Hannah, mother of the Maccabees.  Of course, she gave her life so that her little girl, Barbarita, could be born on Nov. 1, 2010...healthy.  

Barbarita was given a chance to live because her mother loved her just that much, even though she hadn’t even met her yet! Greater love than this no man has—nor greater strength than this, nor greater courage.  Barbara is a martyr, a tower of feminine strength and faith and beauty and love and hope and everything that is good in the human spirit.

And while she was undergoing her ordeal, which culminated with her death in a hospital bed back in 2012, the creature in the picture below was using the halls the Congress as a venue to set up a very different model of femininity in the modern world.




May God help us all.


Thank you, Barbara, for reminding us of what we once were and must become again. We will tell our children your that we will never forget.
