Pro-Aborts Lie - You Die

People on the other side of the aisle consistently resort to lies instead of facts to prove their points. Even one of the founders of the pro-abortion movement has admitted they used tactics learned from Goebels, a Nazi leader credited (though it is believed Hitler really came up with it) with creating the "big lie".

What are all the lies?

Ayotte vs Planned Parenthood

Today the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Ayotte vs Planned Parenthood case. At issue is whether or not an underaged girl seeking an abortion should be forced to notify her parents of her pregnancy in emergency situations or if even if her situation is not life threatening.

Abortion Always Takes a Human Life

Gregg at Pundit Review knocks it out of the park with his response to these comments by Roger Pilon in WSJ

Whether we believe that the right to life begins at conception or at some point over the next 270 days, we all believe, I hope, that it begins at some point along that line. We all agree, there is some point at which abortion amounts to murder…we just can’t agree on where that point is.

Gregg fires back:

This is utter nonsense. We should be able to agree on “when life begins” since it is an undisputed empirical biological fact that can be found in any first year medical student’s embryology textbook that life begins at conception when the human sperm fertilizes the egg-called the process of “fecundation.” Any other arbitrary demarcation of “when human life begins” contradicts this scientific fact. There is no debate on “when human life begins.”

Dutch Establish Child Euthanasia Commission

This is mind-boggling considering that the euthanasia of children is still technically illegal in Holland. But leave it to the Dutch to find new ways to make the rule of law meaningless.

From Reuters:

The Netherlands is setting up a commission to regulate the practice of ending the lives of "seriously suffering" newborn babies, the government said on Tuesday, in a move critics say could allow more euthanasia.

Euthanasia of newborns and late abortions remain illegal, but the commission -- composed of three doctors, a lawyer and a ethicist -- is likely to recommend that doctors who follow certain rules are not charged in concrete cases.

Christmas: the new 4-letter word

Those who have suffered through past Christmases with me know that I am very bad at sending Christmas cards. I get so busy, then I get overwhelmed, then it's the New Year, and once again, no one got a flat, little present from me. Sad, but true.

Used by Politicians

Tom Davis added his name to the list of Virginia Republicans who use the Pro-Life movement for their political gain.

The Boston Globe reported the following on Mr. Davis:

Yet More Lies From Stem Cell "Superstar"?

South Korean professor and cloning pioneer Hwang Woo-suk, is in yet more trouble. And the MSM (mainstream media), who remain desperately committed to push embryonic stem cell research despite its failures, dangers, and immoral foundations, may soon be reeling at the fall of one of their heroes.

And, make no mistake; "hero" is the right word for how Hwang Woo-suk is revered by the media -- and by a large section of the Korean public who have bought into the false promises of embryonic stem cell and cloning researchers. For instance, just a few days ago (even after the revelation of his lying about the source of the eggs used in his experiments), the Telegraph (U.K.) described Woo-suk as "a scientific superstar" whose "laboratory is without doubt leading the rest of the world in using human embryos as a source of stem cells, flexible cells that could offer a treatments for ailments such as heart disease, diabetes and motor neuron disease."

What are we praying for?

Obviously this message is directed at believers, so those of you who don't believe can either continue reading or browse some of our other Pro-Life messages.

Millions around the world pray every day for the end of abortion, euthenasia, infanticide and other horrible crimes against humanity. My question is, what are we praying for?

Australian "Dr Death" Moves Operation to NZ

I had mentioned in yesterday's post how euthanasia advocates were gearing up to propose new legislation in New Zealand. Into this fray comes Dr. Philip Nitschke. If New Zealand seemed a better political climate for his views, it should also be pointed out that the main reason for the move is that he had worn out his welcome in his native Australia.

Appeals Court Rejects Ban on Partial Birth Abortion

A federal appeals panel has upheld a decision striking down a Missouri ban on partial birth abortions. The ruling cited a prior U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling against Nebraska's partial-birth abortion ban which, the court said, failed to include a "health exception" for the mother.

Chief Justice Roberts to Hear First Abortion Related Case

Washington, D.C. - On Wednesday this week, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Although the case centers around a New Hampshire law that requires parental notification before a minor child obtains an abortion, the broader legal issue could either open the floodgates or slam the door on future challenges to abortion laws.

Thanksgiving

Thank you Lord for all the Pro-Life individuals and organizations who who put forth their efforts to save your children.

The power of God is working through all of us in our cause to save His children / our children. I know that legally ending abortion alone is not the final answer, and I know there are many other pieces to the Pro-Life puzzle. Fortunately we are diverse in our efforts and through our different missions we help put together the puzzle one piece at a time.

Giving Thanks for Pro-Life Groups

Jill Stanek delivers a great message of thanks for state and local pro-life organizations in her case study of Michigan Right to Life published by LifeNews:

State and local pro-life organizations form the political and educational nucleus of our movement. The importance of these groups cannot be overstated. Our one strength with politicians is our grassroots. Our one way around liberals and the mainstream press is by direct education.

In my opinion, the foremost state pro-life organization is Right to Life of Michigan. I give thanks for this group today and want to spotlight its inner workings to assist other groups.

Pro-Life Group to Picket American Girl Place in Chicago

The Pro-Life Action League will lead a picket by parents and their daughters at American Girl Place in Chicago on Friday, November 25, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, in protest of American Girl's ties to the pro-abortion advocacy group, Girls Incorporated.

"The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year," said League Executive Director Ann Scheidler. "Our picket will reach thousands of shoppers on Chicago's Magnificent Mile with the unfortunate news that American Girl is funding Girls Inc., a group that strongly advocates abortion."

Can I March For Women's Lives?

Reuters AlertNet | Many women victim of 'gendercide,' study finds:

There is a shortfall of some 200 million women in the world -- "missing" due to what a three-year study on violence against women calls "gendercide."

The number of what the study describes as 'missing' women is based on the random birthrate of males and females and how many fewer women there are than what would be expected in the world population, said Theodor Winkler, head of a research center that directed the project.


This is sad ... but unfortunately not news. Violence against women has been happening for quite some time now. What is "news" is that someone might be starting to pay attention....

And where are the self-appointed guardians of womanhood, and what is their response to the "gendercide" problem? As I write this post, NOW's frontpage is primarily about the Alito nomination. Whatever Judge Alito might have written in a job application 20 years ago seems to pale in comparison to the sheer horror of 200 million dead women.

The Litmus Test

Why is abortion the hot topic of politics almost 33 years after Roe v. Wade? Why does it seem to dominate almost every single election and political race? Why is it that Democrats primarily object to Republican nominees for the Supreme Court for that reason?

Some might argue it is because there are money people behind each side and they are controlling the puppet strings behind the parties.

faithmouse / A Distant Thunder


A Distant Thunder
Director and writer Jonathan Flora contacted me a month or so ago by way of Steven Stone at Alan Keyes' Renew America; the result is the illustration above. Mr. Flora is a well known Hollywood director and producer. A Distant Thunder, which features his wife Deborah Flora, is his own personal project.

Besides making for a riveting 35 minute short, ADT is also a memorable depiction of the medical facts surrounding partial birth abortion.

One of the aspects I admire about Mr. Flora's film is his presentation of a life that wasn't lived, at least not here on earth. God is kind, no matter what the naysayers may claim, and is good to every soul. If heaven is good far beyond what man can imagine, then we can imagine that God gives every life the fulfillment He had originally intended.

Clarence Thomas on the Confirmation Process of Federal Judges

From Lousiana Weekly... "The whole process of trying to ferret out the personal agenda through the confirmation process isn't an endeavor that I think is worth the price we are paying," said Thomas. "I think the only thing it does is rats out the agenda of the people asking the questions."

Thomas, who opposes the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, said the fight he faced during his own confirmation hearings in 1991 went back to abortion politics. Thomas was accused of sexual harassment, charges he referred to at the time as a "high-tech lynching" for an "uppity" black man.

"I think we all should be honest with one another that the only issue, the central issue in all of this, is abortion. It's not the other things that people throw out," he said. "The whole judiciary now is being held, in a sense, hostage to that one issue."

More Ethical Abuses in South Korean Cloning Research

This LifeNews reports perpetuates the cover that the Koreans are doing "stem cell research" but I believe it is more to the point that the defining characteristic of their efforts is the unfettered use of "therapeutic" cloning, which is a bogus distinction.

The stem cell research program in South Korea has already been saddled with worldwide criticism for allegations in scientific journals saying a junior researcher donated her eggs for use in stem cell studies. Now another member of the research team says it ran afoul of ethical considerations.

Speaking at a news conference, Roh Sung Il, head of Miz Medi Hospital in Seoul, said he paid 20 women for contributing their eggs for research. Roh works with human cloning scientist Hwang Woo Suk, who has come under tremendous fire.

Alito now not acceptable?

As Tim pointed out in "Abortion Stance Draws Filibuster Threat" the Dems are beginning to posture for a filibuster on Judge Alito. Joe Biden said "I think he's got a lot of explaining to do,".

Ruth Bader Ginsberg flew through the nomination process even though she made comments like this one:

November 21, 2005

Abortion Stance Draws Filibuster Threat

Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito wrote in a 1985 letter that that he found no right to abortion in Constitution. He also stated that he was proud to have worked in the Justice Department where he was fighting for a limited judiciary and against abortion.

For this, abortion rights extremist and Delaware Democrat Sen. Joe Biden is threatening to filibuster his nomination. "I think he's got a lot of explaining to do," Biden was quoted as saying in a LifeNews article.

Biden and the Senate's clan of abortion supporters are unlikely to succeed should they attempt to block a vote on Alito's nomination.

...most of the members of the group of 14 Republican and Democratic lawmakers who participated in a filibuster compromise earlier this year say they like Alito or don't plan to filibuster.
Yes, Senate Republicans appear to have both the will and the power (votes) to squash a filibuster via the nuclear option. However, as abortion rights activists begin their smear campaign of distortion and fear mongering it remains important to contact your representatives in support of Alito. Every nomination deserves and up or down vote!

Choose Life License Plates - Battle Won

Planned Parenthood's web site calls the unborn "children"

Working at an organization that strongly advocates on behalf of legal abortion must be trying in a lot of ways. One thing that I think a lot of people would find difficult would be language usage. When you're an abortion advocate and you're discussing abortion, words like "child," "baby," and "living" aren't the correct words to describe the unborn because then some people might get the idea that the unborn are living human beings. We all know that Planned Parenthood and company wouldn't want that.

Yet Planned Parenthood has posted part of an article on the possible dangers of anticonvulsant drugs might have on women on their web site. The article was written by Ann Scherer and originally appeared on Epilepsy USA's website.

Quotes I thought I'd never see grace Planned Parenthood's web site include:

"Potential effects on children whose mothers take anticonvulsants during pregnancy are even more troubling..."

"Now pregnant with her first child, Julie has had seizures since childhood and has taken anticonvulsants for years."

Noticeably missing from Planned Parenthood's web site version of the article is this:

During the ninth month of her pregnancy, Liz experienced a seizure, a grand mal convulsion that stopped her breathing. "I almost died, and I almost lost the baby," she recalled. (Emphasis added)

Pro-aborts don't want to talk about this, so let's

20harmon.jpg

An article in yesterday's Boston Globe entitled, "The problem with an almost-perfect genetic world," included this:

Supporters of abortion are especially wary of wading into a discussion over the ethics of prenatal testing, lest they be seen as playing into the opposing side in the fraught national debate over abortion rights.
The topic was a November 10 announcement in The New England Journal of Medicine of reliable prenatal screening for handicaps that can be conducted earlier in the pregnancy.

This means moms will be able to abort defective babies sooner rather than later, which is good. (Although we're told abortions are safer than eating an ice cream cone, early abortions must be 110% safe as opposed to 100% later.)

The fact that pro-aborts don't want to talk about this surprises me and is useful information. After all, "fetal anomalies" is one of the big four reasons pro-aborts use to keep abortion on demand legal (the other three being rape/incest and health and life of the mother).

So let's talk about it. On my blog are compelling points to ponder, many surprisingly brought forth in the BG piece.

A Penalty of Death

By Judie Brown
November 21, 2005

Some days it seems as though the world has turned completely upside
down; nothing makes sense. I just experienced a couple of those days
and it has left me nearly — but not totally — speechless.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops just finished their
annual meeting in Washington, D.C. I am certain a large number of
topics were discussed, but the big news coming out of the meetings is
that the bishops approved an 11 page statement entitled A Culture of
Life and the Penalty of Death. According to one news report, 237
bishops voted for it while four did not.

The bishops are quoted as saying that the country we live in cannot
"teach that killing is wrong by killing those who kill."

Que Sera Sera

Do you remember that Doris Day song?

Que Sera Sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see

Que Sera Sera

Death penalty v. Birth penalty

Judie Brown from the American Life League makes the case that leaders in the Catholic Church went out of their way to make sure that convicted criminals get better treatment than innocent human beings in the womb. If DNA is used to save people who are falsely accused of murder, then why can't the same technology prove that a person in the womb, who also has unique DNA, deserves a right to live?

Other points:

> Why should Bishops seek advice on abortion from elected officials?
> A Priest shouldn't try to win popularity contests.

In about 20 minutes I will post an article that talks about the Christian Church in general and how the topic of abortion is not being addressed. I started the article this morning but saw this one by Judy a few minutes ago and I want to get her message out first.

Death on Demand: Assisted Suicide Not a Medical Solution

My minimum Weekly Wisdom Requirement from Wesley J Smith:


A Swiss assisted suicide organization called Dignitas has helped a depressed woman kill herself in Germany. True, the woman presented a fake medical report, stating she was very ill. But the head of Dignitas said it didn't matter since, "in any case every person in Europe has the right to choose to die, even if they are not terminally ill." (As a result of the suicide, the doctor who faked the medical report also killed himself.)

This is reminiscent of Dr. Philip Nitschke in Australia counseling a "terminally ill" woman named Nancy Crick about how to go about committing suicide. (Assisted suicide advocates who were present clapped when she swallowed the poison pills.) But when it was discovered upon autopsy that Crick was not actually dying, Nitschke said he'd known it all the time and shrugged it off: She wanted to die, he sniffed, so no big deal.

Cord Blood Researched

Since cord blood retrieval was challenged by GOP Christian I thought it would be best to do more research into the procedure.

Cord Blood

I read the article by GOP Christian and decided this issue needs more examination. I obviously would not support any research that would hurt another living human being.

The Nerve Of Some People!

Nerve is a magazine that strives to be "a smart, honest magazine on sex, with c--tsure (and c--ksure) prose and fiction as well as striking photographs of naked people that capture more than their flesh." Their most recent *reproductive rights issue* leaves behind the shallow pools of erotica and strikes out for the deep waters of abortion, contraception, and related matters.

NOTE: Please take note of the fact that Nerve is an "adult-oriented" magazine. As such, their material can hardly be considered family-friendly, unless THIS is your family. I will "clean up" any quotes to avoid offending the easily-offended (as I did above), but you'll have to follow the links at your own risk. Are we clear?

Wrongful Life?

CourtTV.com | In 'wrongful life' suit, disabled woman blames doctor for letting her be born:

A blind and deaf Australian woman who claims she never should have been born is suing a doctor for a lifetime of suffering in the country's first "wrongful life" suit.

Alexia Harriton, 24, is seeking compensation from the doctor who misdiagnosed rubella in the first trimester of her mother's pregnancy, claiming Olga Harriton would have aborted her had she been aware of the potential birth defects arising from the illness.

Lawyers for the Sydney woman argued in Australia's highest court Thursday that Dr. Paul Stephens is liable for the costs arising from a lifetime of medical treatment that Harriton needs to survive.

His negligence resulted in the birth of a child who is "profoundly disabled," a media spokesperson for the law firm representing Harriton told Courttv.com.

Harriton's lawyers claim that Stephens had a duty to Olga Harriton and to her unborn daughter to inform her of the risk of the infection passing to her child.

"Had the rubella been diagnosed, Olga [Harriton] would have exercised her lawful right to terminate the pregnancy," court documents state.


Alexia would rather be dead? Not to sound heartless, but if that's really the way she feels, there are plenty of pro-euthanasia people who would be happy to help her.

Please don't think that I'm advocating suicide, but this complaint just doesn't make any sense to me. Alexia begrudges the fact that she was given an opportunity to live. Please note that Dr. Stephens could not have done anything to prevent Alexia's handicaps. When Olga contracted rubella, the die was cast. At that point, all that the doctor could have done would have been to tell Olga about the potential for birth defects. The only purpose for that information would have been to encourage Olga to abort Alexia. In other words, Alexia is upset that her mother didn't have the opportunity to kill her within the womb.

Anti-Roe opinions by pro-abort renowns

As we begin public debate over Roe v. Wade via Samuel Alito's confirmation to the Supreme Court, reporter Timothy Carney has compiled a list of anti-Roe opinions by pro-choice renowns.

In light of what's at stake, what they write is surprisingly - no, shockingly - honest and also provides strong validation. Here's one example:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg — Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court

"Roe, I believe, would have been more acceptable as a judicial decision if it had not gone beyond a ruling on the extreme statute before the court. … Heavy-handed judicial intervention was difficult to justify and appears to have provoked, not resolved, conflict."

North Carolina Law Review, 1985

One of the extraneous reasons pro-lifers wanted a pro-life Supreme nominee was to provoke public discussion about this indefensible and catastrophic decision.

The Population Research Institute is asking President Bush to raise the issue of forced abortion and sterilization as part of China's coercive population control program during his upcoming visit to the world's largest nation.

Planned Parenthood Challenges Hospital Mergers

Ever-vigilant abortion rights activists claim to be looking out for the rights of women as they oppose mergers between community hospitals and faith-based healthcare providers.

From CitizenLink:

Planned Parenthood has issued a call to action claiming women are in danger of losing their right to what it euphemistically calls “reproductive services” if they don’t oppose mergers between community hospitals and faith-based healthcare providers. Those providers are usually associated with Catholic, Seventh-day Adventist and Baptist churches. Read more . . .

Pro-Life Nurse Says Beware of "Living Wills"

From LifeSite

A pro-life nurse representing a leading organization of medical professionals that opposes abortion says pro-life advocates should be on guard for problems involved with living wills. Since the euthanasia death of Terri Schiavo in March, more attention has been focused on the documents.

Deborah Sturm, a registered nurse and member of National Association of Pro-Life Nurses, discussed living wills and advanced directives at the recent meeting of the Society of Catholic Social Scientists at Franciscan University of Steubenville.

"The standard living-will documents that are advocated by those who support euthanasia have a general presumption for death," Sturm told Zenit news service. "The language is often ambiguous and can be interpreted by a health-care provider in a variety of ways that a patient did not intend."

Pro-choice organizations respond to Judge Alito's resume essay

The essay is available online here.

Needless to say, it's not the best time to be an abortion advocate.

NARAL's president Nancy Keenan says, "Samuel Alito's stated opposition to a woman's constitutional right to choose as guaranteed by Roe v. Wade is further evidence that anti-choice groups got exactly what they ordered from President Bush. This new information about Alito's legal philosophy further puts him out of the mainstream" and "Pro-choice Americans want the Senate to press Mr. Alito on why he chose to highlight his disregard for women's fundamental freedom in a job application."

Planned Parenthood's president Karen Pearl says, "This document shows Judge Alito's judicial philosophy is far more dangerous to the health and safety of American women than the public may have thought. It is strong evidence that Judge Alito would vote to permit restrictions on reproductive freedom for every woman in the United States" and "There is no room on the court for someone like Judge Alito with a judicial philosophy that places at risk the rights, freedoms, and liberties that Americans hold dear."

The Workforce We Are Creating

What kind of workforce will we create if we force people to do things that are ethically wrong?

There are those who say that abortion is a matter of opinion & that we should just agree to disagree. To those of us who believe abortion is murder this is completely unacceptable and is why we still fight to overturn Roe vs Wade almost 33 years later. Abortion is the biggest moral failing in the history of the world and it continues at a rate of 4,000 a day.

South Korean Cloners Already Stumbling on Ethical Issues

Wesley J Smith reports in his blog Secondhand Smoke that that an American researcher has quit over violations of generally accepted ethical guidelines:

When S. Korean researcher Woo-Suk Hwang successfully cloned the first human cloned embryos, there were rumors that women on his research team had been coerced to "donate" their eggs (which requires an onerous medical procedure), or that other irregularities had occurred. Hwang denied it. But now, an American researcher, who had agreed to team with Hwang, has quit, citing inappropriate conduct by Hwang surrounding the human egg issue. (The researcher also stated that there were technical errors in the earlier cloning report. We will have to wait and see what those were.)

Alito: Abortion is not a Right

Crossposted from Stop The ACLU

Washington Times

Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., President Bush's Supreme Court nominee, wrote that "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion" in a 1985 document obtained by The Washington Times. "I personally believe very strongly" in this legal position, Mr. Alito wrote on his application to become deputy assistant to Attorney General Edwin I. Meese III. The document, which is likely to inflame liberals who oppose Judge Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court, is among many that the White House will release today from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. In direct, unambiguous language, the young career lawyer who served as assistant to Solicitor General Rex E. Lee, demonstrated his conservative bona fides as he sought to become a political appointee in the Reagan administration. "I am and always have been a conservative," he wrote in an attachment to the noncareer appointment form that he sent to the Presidential Personnel Office. "I am a lifelong registered Republican." But his statements against abortion and affirmative action might cause him headaches from Democrats and liberals as he prepares for confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, scheduled for January. "It has been an honor and source of personal satisfaction for me to serve in the office of the Solicitor General during President Reagan's administration and to help to advance legal positions in which I personally believe very strongly," he wrote. "I am particularly proud of my contributions in recent cases in which the government has argued in the Supreme Court that racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion." A leading Republican involved in the nomination process insisted that this does not prove Judge Alito, if confirmed to the Supreme Court, will overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that made abortion a constitutional right. "No, it proves no such thing," said the Republican, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "In fact, if you look at some of the quotes of his former law clerks, they don't believe that he'll overturn Roe v. Wade." Judge Alito sided with abortion proponents in three of four rulings during his 15 years as a judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, usually based on existing law and technical legal issues rather than the right to abortion itself. "The issue is not Judge Alito's political views during the Reagan administration 20 years ago," the Republican official said. "It's his 15 years of jurisprudence, which can be evaluated in hundreds of opinions. And in none of those opinions is it evident what his political philosophy is.

Why he needs an apologist on this postition has me scratching my head. Ruth Bader Ginsburg had no apologies in her long history of liberal activism. Jurisprudence is the buzz word. Just note, these are his personal opinions. Not that it matters, I predict you will soon be hearing a lot of whining from the left. Don't count out that ugly fight. We may just see the far-left try and use that filibuster stuff just yet. Women's rights is what we will hear a lot of crying about. Be ready for Kennedy to start screaming, and liberal activist groups to go nuts.

Florida Appeals Court Says Girl Can Have Abortion Without Parental Notification, Despite Law

Crossposted from Stop The ACLU

Yet another example of how our Court Systems think they are above the law. In this case they didn't even have to create law from the bench, they just state that their opinion supercedes the law. What it really does is break the law.

In spite of the fact that Florida state law requires a physician to notify the parents or guardians of girls younger than 18 before performing an abortion, an appeals court has ruled that a 17-year-old can get an abortion without telling her parents.

As part of the law, there are certain specific criteria which would all a girl to obtain a waiver from a judge. In this case, the girl was denied a waiver by Circuit Judge Ellen Masters' last month, who ruled she did not meet the criteria for a waiver.

In what is another case of judiciary trumps law, a majority of the three-judge panel in Lakeland, Florida, said that the girl has the maturity to decide whether to have an abortion or to decide if telling her parents would serve her best interests. Never mind that the law says otherwise.

The girl claims that her Catholic family would “adamantly oppose her decision [to abort the child]” and might kick her out of the house.

The law is no stranger to controversy. After being approved by 64.7 percent of voters on November 2, 2004, the Florida Supreme Court dismissed a motion filed by the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, which sought to strike down the law.

So when will someone step up and hold these judges accountable?

Too busy to save lives?

I'm too busy.

That's what I hear from a lot of people when I encourage them to get involved in the Pro-Life movement. I can understand, it is hard to make money, take kids to soccer games and do all the other things that keep us busy all the time.

Forced Abortions

Speaking of forced abortions. It is not only in China where people are forced to have abortions. My girlfriend's parents forced her to have one back in 1978 which killed my child, who would be 26 years old now.

It is because abortion is legal in America that something like this could happen. I'm sure it has happened to many pregnant girls in this country.

Hillary Continues to Posture

Hillary Clinton demanded that President Bush confront China because many are saying that they force women to have abortions to maintain the one-child policy.

She's preparing herself for her 2008 presidential run by pretending she is concerned about the unborn. Anyone who knows her, knows she doesn't care about them at all.

A Call for Help by June Maxam (Empire Journal)

Update (11/12/2005): From June Maxam - "My father died this evening about 7 p.m. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and efforts on his behalf. He died with dignity, not dehydration." Our thoughts and prayers are with you June.

I would like to encourage all of those would fought for the life of Terri Schiavo to help June Maxam, editor of North County Gazette, and co-publisher of The Empire Journal.

June's father suffered a massive stroke at Eden Park Nursing Home in Glens Falls. He was not hospitalized - instead the nursing home claims they are "maintaining his dignity" and plan to place him in a hospice, withhold all nutrition and hydration and wait for him to die.

In an email, June writes,

My father is currently a resident at the Eden Park Nursing Home in Glens Falls. According to the nursing home, he suffered a massive stroke yesterday morning. They claim they found him that way when they got him up yesterday morning. Why no one checked on him during the night is unknown. They currently have him on morphine and I don't know what other drugs. They have him totally drugged---they claim he is unresponsive---that's because they have him drugged. The person I spoke with and I'm not sure what her capacity was supposed to be, said he couldn't swallow. That is untrue. I watched him. He was routinely swallowing his own saliva. She told me that he would be transferred to a hospice, nothing would be given him and it "wouldn't be long", in other words, they have every intent of starving and dehydrating him without making any effort of recovery. They never transported him to the hospital, therefore no tests have been done to determine just how "massive" this stroke is if indeed he has had a stroke at all. They have done nothing for him. I last saw him yesterday afternoon.
June asks that persons wishing to tell the nursing home of their views on altering health care proxies and death by dehydration may call the Eden Park Health Care Center in Glens Falls at 518-793-5163 or send a fax to 518-793-5165.

Testing for Down Syndrome

Barabara Curtis (MommyLife) comments further on the diabolical use of genetic tests to enable early abortion of babies with Down Syndrome.

It's fear that drives the quest for the perfect test - resulting more often than not in an aborted baby - and the drive for an earlier one. Now it can be administered en masse to eliminate those troublesome babies with Down syndrome that have slipped by to be born to younger mothers.

[snip]

If you have a family member or classmate or friend with Down syndrome, then God's been doubly good to you. But you probably already know that!

My kids are no angels (as anyone who knows us would tell you), but people consistently remark on their kindness. Certainly, I can't take all the credit. Mostly, they are kind because they were part of the family team that's been raising four brothers with Down syndrome. Each of us is different because of their presence in our lives.

Killing to Heal

The Dawn Treader is examining the roots of the Nazi atrocities and the rise of euthanasia in the United States through the book, The Nazi Doctors. Robert Lifton, the book’s author, makes the argument,

"In Nazi mass murder, we can say that a barrier was removed, a boundary was crossed ... My argument in this study is that the medicalization of killing - the imagery of killing in the name of healing -- was crucial to that terrible step. At the heart of the Nazi enterprise, then, is the destruction of the boundary between healing and killing." p.14, The Nazi Doctors.
Killing in the name of healing? In addition to the slippery slope of euthanasia, this sounds remarkably like the arguments used to justify embryonic stem cell research.

George Allen joins the Lukewarm Republicans

One thing you can say about the majority of the Democrats in America, they know where they stand on abortion. They are opposed to ending it no matter what.

Period.

Not so with Republicans. You get so much double-speak out of them on the Pro-Life issue you have to constantly check what their current position is on it.

Birth-Control Patch Warning Will Robinson!

Just when you thought it was safe to stick a birth-control patch (as if it is ever safe for the unborn children) on you to prevent pregnancy they come out with a warning:

The makers of a popular birth-control patch warned millions of women Thursday that the patch exposes them to significantly higher doses of hormones and may put them at greater risk for blood clots and other serious side effects than previously disclosed.

As if the "blood clots and other serious side effects" wasn't enough to make anyone do a double-take, I thought the "than previously disclosed" part was particularly intriging, especially since while they are admitting that they withheld information from us, probably for our own good, the Yahoo article says:

Expelled Student, Fired Clinic Escort - Faithmouse Weighs-In

daily744blog.jpg

Dan Lacey, author of Faithmouse, published the cartoon above in response to the expulsion of pro-life blogger Katelyn Sills (see StandUpSpeakOut) who wrote about the firing of a teacher from her Catholic High School. The teacher, Marie Bain, was released for her prior activities as a clinic escort at Planned Parenthood.

On her website, Katelyn reports that,

"As of Saturday, October 29th, I was given official notice by express mail that I am expelled from Loretto High School. This was given completely without forewarning, without a meeting, and without a chance to say goodbye. My family is now seeking legal advice, and more details will follow."
Her family has also posted a brief statement here.

As an ex-clinic escort, Naaman covered the story from the beginning:

LifeSiteNews also has an article with more details including portions of a statement by Loretto High School and what is apparently a power struggle/turf war between the local Bishop and the school. Although the reasons for the expulsion are not entirely clear to me, it certainly has the appearance of retaliation against the Sills family for going over the school's head and lobbying the Bishop to bring about Bain's dismissal. It is really unfortunate that Katelyn, a 15 year-old pro-life dynamo, is caught in the middle.

Alito and Roe

A few of my pro-life friends are tentatively taking a position against President Bush's current Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito, because three of four abortion rulings he has made during his tenure as a circuit court judge were anti-life.

I'm not. I support Judge Samuel Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Along with Tim's spotlight the other day of Judie Brown's thoughts on Alito, here are a couple other columns to consider:

"Why Alito's the man for the true conservative agenda," by John Hinderaker and Paul Mirengoff, November 6, 2005, Washington Post

"How do we know Alito would overturn Roe?," by Joseph D'Agostino, November 7, 2005, Human Events

All three columns may be read in their entirety on my blog.

Abortion-Cerebral Palsy Link

From WorldNetDaily:

The state of Texas is now informing women considering an abortion that the procedure boosts the risk of delivering a future baby with cerebral palsy.

The booklet “A Woman’s Right to Know” (named for the state law that requires all doctors to make available certain information to women contemplating an abortion), published by the Texas Department of Health, contains these warnings about cerebral palsy and other diseases for which premature babies are at high risk:

“Some large studies have reported a doubling of the risk of premature birth in later pregnancy if a woman has had two induced abortions,” the booklet reads. “The same studies report an 800 percent increase in the risk of extremely early premature births for a woman who has experienced four or more induced abortions. Very premature babies, who have the highest risk of death, also have the highest risk for lasting disabilities, such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, lung and gastrointestinal problems, and vision and hearing loss.”

Adoption should not be taken lightly, says Fr. Pavone

One of the arguments that the pro-abortion movement continually tries to use to convince society of the necessity of abortion is that with adoption, the birth parents "will have someone else raise their baby." This view is seen as simply unacceptable for their rigid ideology because all pregnancies, not just all children, must be planned. It hardly seems logical that a planned pregnancy would result in an adoption plan, and therefore all adoption plans must come from an unplanned pregnancy. The solution for an unplanned pregnancy for pro-choice'ers? Abortion.

Fr. Frank Pavone offers practical and pastoral insight on adoption.

Judging the Judge – Alito and Abortion

By Judie Brown

Sometimes pro-lifers rival the pro-abortion crowd in their hysterical hyperbole. Such is the case regarding President Bush's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Samuel Alito. While I am not attempting to defend the man or use a crystal ball to read his mind and determine what he might rule in the future, I do believe it is prudent to examine precisely what he did do when it came to cases involving abortion.

Was The Last Abortion Clinic Biased?

I wanted to hold my opinions until I read my previous article and watched the show again. What I saw was almost exactly what I expected from the documentary, a rant against Pro-Life America. I was just happy to see that they played footage from Pro-Life people and used the statement "Pro-Life" as much as they did.

UK Right-to-Die Bill Tabled for Fourth Time

From LifeSite

Despite dropping voluntary euthanasia and providing an opt-out for doctors, Lord Joffe has tabled his bill apparently because he does not believe he has the votes.

British doctors have won an agreement to include an opt-out clause in legislation in the House of Lords that would legalize assisted suicide. The changes make the bill less onerous, but pro-life advocates are happy that it will be tabled for a fourth time.

Activist's Review of Frontline's 'The Last Abortion Clinic'

On the whole, I thought last night's Frontline program on The Last Abortion Clinic was good, even uplifting.

Christianity Today Article Exposes "Birth Control " Pills

Agnieszka Tennant has written a clever and impassioned argument for Christianity Today about the abortifacient properties of oral "contraceptives". It is really an engaging article and I urge you to check it out and then use it. It will make a very effective pass-around piece.

This is really good news for those who understand the abortifacient properties of the tragically misnamed birth contol pill, so please write quickly and thank CT and the article's author. (letters@ChristianityToday.com)

Californians reject parental rights

Yesterday Californians voted against Proposition 73 which would have required parental notification before minors receive an abortion. With 99.9% of the precincts reporting, the vote was 52.6% to 47.4%. The prolife measure did do better than any of the other Propositions which also failed.

Check out this map which shows how the inland regions of California favored Prop. 73 while the coastal counties were strongly opposed.

Planned Parenthood's Unholy Alliance

Actually the article should be titled "Our government's unholy alliance" but it does work both ways

TV Show Distorts Church Teaching on Abortion


Except under the rarest circumstances, like tonight's Frontline episode on "The Last Abortion Clinic," I don't watch TV, so I didn't see this one myself. But I undestand from an e-mail correspondent and a Catholic League press release that a recent episode of CBS's CSI grossly distorted Catholic teaching on abortion.

Apparently one of the detectives on the show claimed at some point that a medieval pope once decreed that a fetus is not a human being until quickening (when the mother first feels the baby move).

I don't know about a pope ever having said such a thing, but many theologians held more-or-less this view. The reason? Scientific evidence.

A Fictitious Voice of Moderation

Jimmy-Carter.jpgJimmy Carter: Abortion Redux, Today's News & Views, National Right to Life

"This was an issue that I had to face when I was campaigning 25 years ago. I have always been against abortion; it's not possible for me in my own concept of Christ to believe that Jesus would favor abortion. But at the same time, I have supported the Supreme Court ruling of our country as the law of the land. And the present arrangement, whereby a woman is authorized to have an abortion in the first trimester of the pregnancy, or when the pregnancy is caused by rape or incest -- these are the things that moderates who have beliefs like mine can accept as the present circumstances in our country. The liberality of abortion is anointed by the laws of our country, including the ultimate ruling of the Supreme Court. " - Jimmy Carter interviewed last week by Ayelish McGarvey
Those of us old enough to remember (however vaguely) the 1976 presidential race which pitted Democrat Jimmy Carter against Republican Gerald Ford recall that Carter narrowly prevailed for a host of reasons. After the issues of Nixon and Watergate and President Ford's awful debate performance, very near the top of the pyramid of reasons an unknown former governor of a small Southern state could win was that he was seen as a "moderate" on social issues, including abortion.

As many of you have read (or actually seen on C-SPAN's "Book Notes"), that fictitious voice of moderation on abortion resurfaced last week as Mr. Carter promoted his new book, "Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis." He was interviewed on "Book Notes" by NBC's Brian Williams, who was, as a young man, an intern in President Carter's administration.

The Last Abortion Clinic

PBS Frontline will present a one-hour documentary titled “The Last Abortion Clinic,” highlighting the pro-life efforts of Mississippi to become the first abortion-free state in the Union. It will also explore the abortion industry’s Achilles Heel – their inability to keep clinics open in the face of mounting social pressure and a new generation of youth who are increasingly shunning abortion as a viable “choice.” This has been billed by the PBS networks and pro-life activists alike as “must-see” TV. Check your local PBS affiliates for the broadcast time in your state.

Secret Abortions Exposed on Tape

Shocking tapes now online at www.YESon73.net -- more than 90 audio tape recordings and transcripts of telephone calls to California abortion clinics provide graphic proof that many abortion clinics are willing to perform a secret abortion on a 13-year-old girl impregnated by a 22-year-old man without informing a parent or guardian.

No Tolerance from Gay Activists

Our friends at the Family Research Council had an interesting morning. A small group of protestors attempted to silence the organization by pushing their way into the first floor lobby of the FRC's Washington, D.C. location.

In a press release, Tony Perkins explained,

"This gang of individuals who make 'tolerance' their motto have no tolerance for the law, the democratic process or anyone who disagrees with them. This small group of activists cannot silence those who proclaim the undeniable reality that abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage are the only formula for 'safe sex."

They can attempt to stop our work today but they cannot stop the people of faith from involving themselves in the political process."

I don't know about you, but I'm going to take a little time today to express my support and encouragement for the noble stand the FRC is taking for traditional family values and the sanctity of human life.

Fired Clinic Escort Files Complaints Against The Catholic Church For Being Consistent

SacBee.com | Fired Loretto teacher files complaints:

Marie Bain, 50, of Sacramento, filed two separate employment complaints Thursday with the state against Loretto, the religious order that sponsors the school, the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento and Bishop William K. Weigand.

One complaint - with the state Department of Labor - calls for an investigation of the employment practices of the diocese. The other - with the state Department of Fair Employment and Housing - is a first step toward a lawsuit.


The handwriting was on the wall....

Marie Bain, if you will recall, was employed as a drama teacher at Loretto High School, a Catholic girls' school. Upon receiving proof that Bain had recently worked as an escort at the local Planned Parenthood clinic, the Bishop of Sacramento requested Bain's termination. The Loretto administration complied.

Why We Need Prop 73

reluctant.jpgIn California, if your daughter is under 18, she can’t get a flu shot, she can’t go on a school trip, she can’t have a tooth pulled, she can’t get her ears pierced, without your knowing it.

But did you know an older boyfriend or school employee can take your 13-year-old daughter to an abortionist who can perform a surgical or chemical abortion on her without your knowing it?

In California, where minors can receive secret, free (taxpayer-funded) abortions as often as they wish, the number of minors’ abortions is the highest in the country. Perhaps more disturbing is a study of over 46,000 pregnancies of school-age girls in California, which found over two thirds were impregnated by adult men whose mean age was 22.6 years.

If you don’t believe it, go here now to listen to undercover tapes featuring California abortion counselors offering secret, confidential abortions to underage girls without parental notification.

US National Sued in Cambodia for Euthanasia Websites

From Xinhua Online

A US national who owned two web sites alleged promoting Cambodia as a euthanasia destination has been sued by Cambodia's Kampot Province governor Puth Chandarith, local media reported on Friday.

The defamation lawsuit filed at Kampot provincial court alleges that US national Roger Graham has destroyed Kampot's reputation by suggesting that it is a good place to come to die through his web sites www.euthanasiaincambodia.com and www.asian-hearts.com.

The web sites inform visitors that euthanasia is not illegal in Cambodia, encourage donations to support euthanasia in Cambodia, and state, in reference to taking one's own life, "You can in Cambodia!"

Parents Have a Right to Know

yeson73.jpgIn California, a girl under age 18 can’t get a flu shot, a cavity filled, or an aspirin dispensed by the school nurse without a parent knowing. But a doctor can perform a surgical or chemical abortion on a young girl without informing a parent.

Proposition 73 will require that a physician notify in writing a parent or guardian at least 48 hours before performing an abortion on a minor girl.

Yeson73 has a set of outrageous and shocking audio files (HT: Sharon Hughes) available online in which California abortion counselors are caught on tape offering secret, confidential abortions to a "13-year-old" girl without parental notification!

According to the website, Planned Parenthood and other abortion counelors offer "confidential" secret abortions, behind parents' backs, without parental knowledge, to a caller who identifies herself as a 13-year-old impregnated by her 22-year-old boyfriend.

My take on "The Last Abortion Clinic"

PBS is going to show a documentary called "The Last Abortion Clinic". PBS is one of the most liberal media organizations in the world and I'm supposed to somehow believe that suddenly they have become Pro-Life? I don't think so.

Judge Alito's Rulings in Abortion - Update

Hugh Huwitt comments on the Christian Science Monitor article that looks at Judge Alito's record in cases involving abortion:

The conclusion: He's a superb circuit court judge who is applying the law as the Supreme Court has announced it. Anyone purporting to know how Judge Alito will rule on abortion -related cases as a member of SCOTUS is making it up. Period.
Some struggle with the fact that Alito submitted to prior Supreme Court rulings as required by law and does not have an explicitly pro-life public stand. Others take comfort in the fact that he apparently disagreed with SCOTUS in Carhart, stood for the personhood of the unborn in Alexander v. Whitman, and is a strict constructionist.

Those discouraged by the MSM’s representation of Alito’s peers (Judges: Alito Unlikely to Overturn Roe) would do well to read Daisy Cutter’s commentary of the judge’s prior decisions. Also, check out Charles Krauthammer's Distorting Sam Alito.

Two Routes Down the Slippery Slope

From Notre Dame Observer

Law Professor Charles Rice has an interesting take on the different approachs to euthanasia in Holland and the US. Basically he posits that we may be farther along than the Dutch:

The Dutch get undeserved credit as trail-blazers in euthanasia. The United States may be the front-runner, even though our law does not permit a physician to kill the patient. Oregon allows assisted suicide, but that merely allows the physician to give the patient the means by which the patient can kill himself. While the law in the United States stops short of legalizing intentional, direct and active killing of patients, as permitted in Holland (and Belgium), it broadly permits intentional killing by terminal sedation or by withholding food and water.

Today is November 4th, the Call for Life day at http://www.marchtogether.com.

Every month on the first Friday we contact our representatives or march at a local government building to let our representatives know that abortion needs to end!

Passion for Abortion?

People often say to me things like "you have such a passion for the abortion issue". Much of the time this is not what I want to hear.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that people acknowledge the countless hours I spend working on the many Pro-Life projects, but "passion" is not exactly the word I would use.

Milwaukee Abortion Clinic Closes its Doors

Only two abortion clinics remain in Milwaukee. Since the Missionaries to the Preborn began in 1988, 6 of 8 abortion clinics in Milwaukee have closed.

Last Saturday, October 29th, 2005, the Summit Women’s Health organization, an abortion clinic located at 530 N. Water St. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, closed it’s doors for good. The clinic has not declared any public reason for it’s shutting down, but since the year 2000, Missionaries to the Preborn has targeted the clinic with daily pickets. For the last five years, they have been there every day to offer help to the mothers as they approach the clinic. They have also frequently picketed the homes of the abortionists and the clinic workers.

Human Cloning Ban Vetoed

Wisconsin citizens and their representatives have been busy taking noble stands on behalf of the unborn. Unfortunately, the state’s governor has a track record of vetoing anything that is pro-life.

Governor James Doyle today nixed legislation that would have prohibited human cloning in Wisconsin. Assembly Bill 499 would have banned both "reproductive cloning" – where a cloned person is brought to birth, and "therapeutic cloning" – where a cloned person is killed in the course of scientific experimentation

Wisconsin pro-life organizations expressed significant disappointment.

Alito and "Personhood"

Gerard Bradley has an article in the National Review on a ruling Alexander v. Whitman by the Third Circuit. The court ruled, with Alito concurring, that it was constitutional for the state of New Jersey to prevent parents from suing medical facilities under a wrongful death law if their unborn child dies before birth. The court based their decision on the idea that unborn children, regardless of whether or not they are human beings, aren't "constitutional persons" under the precedent set forth in Roe v. Wade.

Alito writes in his brief concurrence, "I am in almost complete agreement with the court's opinion, but I write to comment briefly on two points. First, I think that the court's suggestion that there could be "human beings" who are not "constitutional persons" is unfortunate. I agree with the essential point that the court is making: that the Supreme Court has held that a fetus is not a "person" within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. However, the reference to constitutional non-persons, taken out of context, is capable of misuse."

In other news, Father John Neuhaus reports that Judge Alito is a "careful reader of FIRST THINGS."

"Of course he's against abortion."

Let me first say that we may disagree on politics, but we agree on Life, and Life must come first.

Judge Alito's mother made the statement "of course he's against abortion." to the press, and both sides of the aisle are jumping on it as ammunition to support or oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court. He may be "against abortion" but that doesn't mean he will do a thing to end it.

I don't believe anything until I see it and hear it myself.

Californians - Unite Behind Proposition 73

You folks in California should make sure Proposition 73 passes.

This measure would require that physicians notify a parent if their daughter is going to have an abortion. Why shouldn't a parent be notified? Don't you want to know if your daughter is going to have a life-changing surgery?

Confederacy of Dunces

I'm not sure where to begin with this report from the AP:

Bodies recovered from a nursing home and hospital after Hurricane Katrina were so badly decomposed by the time autopsies were done that they probably won't yield evidence for prosecuting crimes, a coroner said.

Orleans Parish Coroner Frank Minyard, who is overseeing autopsies for the state, said that he simply listed the cause of death as "Katrina related" for the 34 victims of St. Rita's Nursing Home and more than 40 people who died at Memorial Medical Center.

The Louisiana attorney general charged the owners of St. Rita's with negligent homicide and subpoenaed 73 people in a probe into whether euthanasia caused the deaths at Memorial.

Alito and What the Liberal Media Want Us to Ignore

"With his credentials, the only basis Democrats will have to filibuster is his conservative court opinions. It is definitely an open question if they can hold their ranks solely on ideological grounds," [University of Connecticut professor David] Yalof said...Although Democrats will challenge his nomination, it will be difficult to oppose someone with his experience, said Yalof, the author of a book on Supreme Court nomination politics.
Echoing another quote already seen, for example in The Chicago Tribune:
November 2, 2005

Supporting Supreme Court Nominee Samuel Alito

Just moments after the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Samuel Alito was announced, anti-life, anti-faith, anti-family organizations committed to keeping a conservative nominee from being confirmed were already attacking him, calling him "too radical."

In support of Judge Samuel Alito, the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ is mobilizing 100,000 citizens in the next 14 days to sign its "Support Judge Alito" petition.

Alito Concerns Pro-Lifers

As a strict constructionist, Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito respected prior Supreme Court decisions and, on three occasions, ruled in a "pro-choice" manner (Christian Science Monitor).

"I don't think these cases tell us anything about whether he would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade or not," says James Bopp, general counsel for National Right to Life. "Nor do they tell us whether he supports pro-life as a value.... He wasn't trying to create law. He was just carefully following the existing law."

In fact, even Alito's dissent in Casey, which has given many encouragement that he will stand up for the sanctity of human life, if carefully examined shows the nominee was not ...

“... ideological and did not show any disrespect to governing Supreme Court abortion precedent. On the contrary, Alito's analysis was a careful application of the framework laid out by Justice O'Connor in her many opinions on the subject. It was also relatively mainstream...” - The New Republic via The Volokh Conspiracy

Worldview

"The overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world."

Abortion is not an individual topic, it is part of the big picture, part of the Weltanschauung (worldview) that people have. There are many pieces that make up a worldview. How do we see things such as

Alito and Partial Birth Abortion

Today I received an e-mail from a pro-lifer concerned about Judge Samuel Alito's concurring opinion in Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey v. Farmer in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The Court overturned New Jersey's ban on partial birth abortion, and Alito concurred with that decision.

Having found little analysis of this decision in the blogosphere, I thought I would present mine here. What follows is the substance of my response to this concerned pro-lifer.

Will Gov. Doyle Stand with the Wisconsin Legislature on Cloning Ban?

AB 499, a ban on all human cloning, was passed by both houses of the Wisconsin State Legislature. Under this measure, neither public nor private entities would be allowed to engage in the creation of human clones which would be destroyed in the embryonic stage to obtain stem cells, or developed to a time equivalent to birth in an artificial womb or uterus and then destroyed to obtain organs, cells, and tissues.

Wisconsin Right to Life urges Governor Doyle to sign AB 499 into law so that Wisconsin is recognized as a state that values human life and which will not tolerate the use of human lives as a commodity for experimentation purposes. The Governor knows that scientists are achieving fantastic medical treatment gains through use of adult stem cells – and no one has to die to achieve these real results for real people,” stated Barbara Lyons, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life.

“It is now in the Governor’s hands. he Governor can show critical moral courage by stopping the practice of human cloning in Wisconsin before it begins.”

So, will Governor Doyle take a stand for human life and ban the creation human clones?

Stacking the Deck

Time and time again the pro-abortion activists prove they are more concerned about their agenda than they are about the health and well being of women. Why else would they suppress the truth about the risks associated with abortion such as depression and breast cancer? Where are all the feminists when you need them?

Too Young for Sex, Old enough To Kill

A 13 year old girl and a 12 year old boy had sex. I know, they were too young to be doing that, but Planned Parenthood probably held a youth seminar that week.

It resulted in a baby, which the girl delivered and has kept.

That's not the crazy part though.

Judge Samuel Alito Gains Pro-Life Supporters

According to an American Life League statement Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito is "worth of support."

"At last, President Bush has put forward the name of a Supreme Court nominee who has an established track record that we can review," said Judie Brown, ALL president. "That record includes one ruling in particular with which I am especially pleased, in which Judge Samuel Alito made the correct argument in a case involving abortion."

Prolife blogger expelled

A prolife student named Katelyn Sills, who blogged about the firing of a teacher (who also happened to be an abortion clinic escort) from her Catholic high school and whose mother outed the activities of this teacher to their Bishop, has been expelled from Loretto High School, "without forewarning, without a meeting, and without a chance to say goodbye."

As soon as the family's lawyers give the ok, the reasons for her explusion will be posted but we know that her expulsion had "nothing to do with misbehavior or low academic performance on Katelyn's part."

Pro-Life Boycott of American Girl Begins Today

[GIRLS FOR LIFE]
After three weeks of constant appeals from pro-life parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, the American Girl doll company has refused to sever ties with Girls Incorporated, a group that supports abortion, condones lesbianism and opposes abstinence-only programs.

As we promised American Girl last week, today we are calling for boycott of American Girl products through the 2005 Christmas Season. We're inviting those who value the innocence of little girls and the lives of unborn babies to join the boycott. Perhaps the absence of our dollars will do what our voices could not.

Reaction Dividing Lines Sharp With Alito Nomination

LifeSiteNews catalogs the line-up for and against Judge Samuel Alito, nominee to the Supreme Court:

President Bush’s swift, decisive nomination of Samuel A. Alito to the Supreme Court has stunned the liberal establishment and generated instant praise from almost all conservative leaders. Bush gave conservatives exactly what they asked for this time. The reaction dividing lines are sharp. The Democrats are far more critical than they were over Miers and anti-life, anti-family organizations are already getting ugly about this nomination.

For a listing of leaders and organizations pro and con on Alito, go to Choose Life.


Samuel Alito's 90-year-old mother says:

"Of course, he's against abortion"
