Rosary for Unborn

EDIT - Thanks to a reader in the combox that pointed out the "revelations" and "promises" given by Mary to those who use this rosary. Sounds either like a scam or something else that is not quite right. So, I have taken down the link and pics.

Thanks.

That is a pretty rosary, but I have a feeling that this is a scam operation.

If you read their website, it sounds like special graces are attached only to this specific rosary by Mary and Jesus directly, but only by the rosaries manufactured by this particular company. It claims that similar looking rosaries produced by another party or regular rosaries will not have the same graces attached to them. It's also unsettling to see the name "Rosary of the Unborn" with a registered trademark symbol throughout the site.

I also found the following link that refutes some of the revelations that come from Maureen Sweeney Kyle, the woman who supposedly received these revelations from Jesus and Mary.

There's probably more to this than what I have here.

Sorry if this has been posted twice.

I think this "Rosary of the Unborn©" (registered trademark symbol included on the site) is a scam, although a pretty rosary design.

The website claims that Jesus and Mary revealed to Maureen Sweeney-Kyle that the "Rosary of the Unborn©", as manufactured ONLY by Holy Love Ministries, has special graces attached that help to end abortion. Apparently, regular rosaries or "Rosary of the Unborn©" knockoffs don't count.

Also, Maureen Sweeney-Kyle has some "visions" that are disputed. Check out:

Don't all rosaries have the same graces even if they are diffrent. So what if they chose a particular rosary, its like reading a book. You have to get the right book to get the right information, right?

The problem isn't with the rosary (that which is being sold), but with the tying of promises to a particular one.
