Pro-Life Doctor Xavier Dor Condemned -- A Desire to Save Lives and Mental Illness?

(Paris) Faster than expected, the judges of the 31st Criminal Chamber of the Paris Court have reached their judgment. The prosecution accused the Pro-Life Doctor, Xavier Dor, of recently praying the rosary publicly "without permission" ( see separate report ). In addition, the physician and president of the right to life organization SOS Tout Petits was alleged to have exerted "mental and psychic pressure" on women determined to have abortions, because he had given the gift of baby slipper to two pregnant women who wanted to kill their unborn children by abortion.

Dor defended himself in court with a reference to the right guaranteed in the Constitution, the (mythical) right to freedom of expression. But the 85 year old doctor was found guilty as charged by the judges. Although freedom of expression is a valuable commodity, say the judges, yet it still has limitations: the respect for the other, in the specific case of the women. Given the fact that they were about the murder of another person, namely the unborn child, it was a masterly euphemism.

Because of his age he is expected clemency. The Criminal Court accepted the proposal of the public prosecutor and sentenced Xavier Dor to one month imprisonment and a related 8000 euro penalty. His efforts to persuade women to save the life of their children, was thus declared a criminal offense. But this was not enough, the judge sentenced the doctor also to a "little psychological therapy."

Because the French judge is therefore not so mentally disturbed, he who kills innocent children (or correspondingly demands legislation for killing and decides on it), but who is committed to the lives of the most vulnerable. Yet it is not clear what kind of "psychological therapy" should be imposed on the doctor, given the fact that Xavier Dor sees its struggle as a "spiritual struggle and resistance against the culture of death."

The judgment clearly shows that the attempt to bring into line the (true) right to life for children and the (wrong) right to abortion can not be brought on behalf of female self-determination. The one excludes the other, which all people of good will have always known.

Catholic Gives Pregnant Women a Pair of Baby Shoes - He Faces Two Years in Prison

(Paris), Xavier Dor is 85 years old. The French doctor has been working for 20 years to protect the life of unborn children. On 26 June, he was compelled to appear in court in Paris, so to speak because he had prayed the rosary publicly and without permission.

Xavier Dor, President of the Catholic Right to Life Association SOS Tout Petits. A court case was initiated against him based on "exercise of moral and psychological pressure." The doctor had given a pregnant woman a pair of baby shoes in front of the entrance to a feminist organization in which they wanted to apply for an abortion.

All because of a pair of baby shoes

The doctor and life defender was pointed out to the feminist association for family planning, the French Association of Centers for Abortion and Contraception ANCIC and the Federation of Associations for the Right to Abortion and Contraception CADAC. The three organizations joined as plaintiffs in the court case.

The 85-year-old is accused of entering the office of the feminist association twice to give two pregnant women a pair of shoes for newborn children, who applied for the killing of their children there. This action, according to the indictment last Friday, had been an act of "extreme violence" through "moral and psychological pressure."

Guilty of Praying the Rosary

Founded in 1986 by Dor, the Catholic Right to Life Association SOS Tout Petits has prayed the rosary since the early 90s in front of abortion clinics. With the prayer, they pray for the end of the killing of Innocents by closing the clinic or Abortion Association. They pray that pregnant women do not realize their intention to kill their child in the womb. They pray for the conversion of abortion doctors and other staff participating in abortions. Not least, they pray as an act of reparation for the murder of children.

Xavier Dor has been summoned to appear on 26 June before the criminal court because of the indictment, to answer charges that on the 2nd of April in 2011, he is to have "incited" to pray a rosary in front of the Saint Vincent de Paul Hospital in Paris without permission. The doctor risks a penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of up to 30,000 euros.

A crime against God

The prosecution called last Friday for "only" one month of detention and an 8000 euro penalty. The judges are due to announce their verdict before the approaching holiday until the 16th September.

Dor has already been convicted and imprisoned in the 90s due to the implementation of an unsanctioned rally for the right to life. The doctor's books are Le Crime Contre Dieu (The Crime Against God, Paris 1998) and Le livre blanc de l'avortement en France (White Paper of abortion in France, Paris, 2006) about the threat to the right to life. Dor is with SOS Tout Petits among the first promoters of the French March for Life .
