On the post made on July 25, 2010, on our FYI&R (0) page we stated:

Did you know that.... the abortion rate in the US peaked in 1990 and has steadily dropped since? (1) (2)

The U.S. abortion rate has reached its lowest level in three decades, according to a new report released on January 2008.

"We don't know why," said study author Rachel Jones, senior research associate at the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit group that focuses on reproductive issues. The findings will be published in the March issue of the institute's journal, Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health.

The actual number of abortions dropped to a new low, with 1.2 million abortions in 2005, compared to a high of 1.6 million abortions in 1990.

miguel de Portugal comments: "We don't know why," Ms. Jones admits. However, by an obvious act of Divine Providence, we found what may very well be the reason for it – in a twenty-year-old file folder which somehow has survived my journey - which, at times, feels like "an Eternity tumbling down Niagara Falls in a barrel" must.


Through what appeared to be "pure chance" miguel de Portugal came across a long forgotten file that somehow has survived twenty-nine years of his life-on-the-go at the service of God. That was the first sign of the Hand of Providence.

In the afternoon of  coming across those files, while in prayer, miguel was inspired to look at the abortion statistics which would encompass the year 1990, when his original documentation was prepared. This he did on the following day and what he found resulted in the FYI&R posting partially reproduced above. That was the second sign of the Hand of Providence. Miraculously the abortion rate in the US peaked out in 1990 and started to steadily decline with no official or scientific reason.

It was then that we were moved to publish the information contained in that long forgotten file as a reminder to the Faithful that if we do our part, God will do His part proportionally.

The Hand of Providence was confirmed when miguel noticed the date of the letter he sent to the editor of SOUL Magazine - July 23, 1990. Exactly 20 years - to the day - before he Providentially ran into the long forgotten file folder containing said letter as well as the rest of the documentation.


We have been able to process the contents of the twenty year old folder and have tried to present the information in the most user-friendly format.

The document package is composed of:

(a) A letter to SOUL Magazine letting them know how Michael (now miguel de Portugal) planned to promote their sponsored Supernatural Rescue Mission. (4)
(b) A flier composed from the SOUL Magazine article promoting the Supernatural Rescue Mission (5)
(c)  The letter that would accompany said flier to parish priests and ecclesiastical authorities. (6)

The documentation has been presented "as is" with very minor editing: (a) miguel's civil name has been deleted; and (b) two critical sentences have been deleted as an act of charity.

It is important that we now underscore that these letters accurately describe our position in 1990 regarding SOUL Magazine and The Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima. However, our view of these organizations has changed since then, due to circumstances and events that became manifest after 1991. We have explained this matter in another document. (7)


Obviously we cannot determine or claim the effect Michael's effort had on slowing down abortion in the US. However, we can resolutely claim, without a shred of a doubt, that the SOUL Magazine's sponsored Supernatural Rescue Mission was responsible for turning the abortion tide in the US.

Imagine what could have been accomplished if more people had become more involved in the Rescue Mission.

This is just another example that proves that what Jesus never tires of reminding us - as quoted in Luke 11: 8-13....

[8] Yet if he shall continue knocking, I say to you, although he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend; yet, because of his importunity, he will rise, and give him as many as he needeth. [9] And I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. [10] For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

[11] And which of you, if he ask his father bread, will he give him a stone? or a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? [12] Or if he shall ask an egg, will he reach him a scorpion? [13] If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father from heaven give the good Spirit to them that ask him? simply true!

We just have to believe it so that it can be manifested.
