Exploiting women for “The Cause”
On Thursday the House passed the Protect Life Act by a vote of 251 – 172. With the majority of pro-choice voters even opposed to taxpayer funding of abortion, it had been hard to rationalize opposing the bill.
So Nancy Pelosi & Co were forced to hit the floor of the House with a hysterical litany of dire warnings all based upon abortion’s biggest lie – that any and all restrictions on abortion are a direct threat to the health of every woman in America.
The following video excerpts are typical of the farce. The cast of Pelosi’s Big Lie Hit Parade would have been laughable in their transparent hyperbole if not for the barbarity of abortion itself and the hundreds of thousands of women whose lives have been adversely affected by abortion.

Right on life is invariably right on the critical issues facing our nation
It seemed a legitimate concern. Tea Party rallies focused primarily on fiscal issues – taxes, spending, government controlled healthcare and the size of government. Nary a word about the right to life for all Americans.
No need to worry. The Tea Party backed candidates in the upcoming elections are, as far as we know, all pro-life, most receiving endorsements from prominent pro-life organizations and activists. And it shouldn’t be surprising.
A quick litmus test for candidates to lead us out of our economic morass is, in fact, their position on life.

“Pro-life” Charlie Crist does not want “to impose my will on others”
Small wonder Florida Governor Charlie Crist finds himself a politician without a party. A man lacking principles, convictions and integrity rarely has much of a crowd around him.
Well known as a flip-flopper and double talker, Crist exemplifies the bottom of the barrel politician who muddles his/her position on abortion in hopes of deceiving voters on both sides of the issue. The types are well known. Democrats who are “pro-choice, but not pro-abortion.” Political flim flam. Voting for legislation that enables abortion is, of course, supporting abortion.
Even lower down the ladder however, are politicians like Charlie Crist who talk the pro-life talk in election years and then promptly walk the other way the following January. And the excuse is always the same. The Noble Cop Out. “I do not want to impose my will on others”.

Catholic Bishops are starting to say that “something has to be done”
“I talked to the Catholic bishops about this… This bill that passed the Senate does not have federal funding of abortion”. Catholic Speaker Of The House Nancy Pelosi lying, again, about abortion.
Though lying directly to the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops may be taking it up a notch, misleading people over abortion is nothing new for Ms Speaker.
Actually, the only time that “practicing Catholic” Pelosi even mentions the Catholic Church, is when she is blatantly distorting the Church’s Catechism on abortion in order to mislead and corrupt others.
In doing so, Nancy Pelosi is committing the scandal. Per the Catechism Of The Catholic Church, “Scandal is an attitude or behavior that leads another to do evil”. And Catholic Bishops are starting to say that “something has to be done”.

“America’s Rabbi’ proposes a new avenue of attack
“Judicial Activism” has evolved into a commonly accepted practice in America’s federal courts. Many liberal judges clearly feel empowered to create constitutional rights based upon their particular views of society’s needs and ills. And the beginning of this corruption of our judiciary can be directly traced back to the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision which created a non-existent right to abortion in America.
To anyone with a true understanding of the principals of the founding fathers, Roe v Wade is clearly unconstitutional because it denies an entire group of citizens, America’s most helpless citizens, the fundamental right to life. But considering the current composition of the Supreme Court, and the political climate in Washington, Roe v Wade will likely stand for the foreseeable future.
So other paths must be pursued in defending the rights of the unborn, and a new avenue of attack was suggested by Rabbi Yehuda Levin during the 2010 March For Life in January.

Prayers and support for Sen Ben Nelson to reconsider his vote
Nebraska democratic Senator Ben Nelson sold out. It’s true and the pro-life community is disappointed, angered and despondent. Sen Nelson had repeatedly vowed that he would not vote for the senate version of “healthcare reform” unless the bill included strict language prohibiting the use of federal funds for abortion.
Instead, at the 11th hour, Senator Nelson caved. Not to pressure, but to temptation. A $100 million payoff to Nelson by way of a permanent exemption from increased state contributions to Medicaid for Nebraska.
Senator Nelson has been roundly castigated. And deservedly so. But he surely has heard our voices and now is the time to forgive. We all err, and we all succumb to temptation on occasion. And in Senator Nelson’s case there is ample time for a generally staunch defender of the unborn to make amends and find redemption.

The left’s standard response to common sense restrictions on abortion
Berkeley, CA has once again distinguished itself in the category of, well let’s just say unseemly public behavior. The Berkley City Council, by a vote of 8 – 1, yesterday voted to send letters of displeasure to 20 democratic members of the US House Of Representatives who had voted in favor of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment to the House “healthcare reform” bill. The Stupak amendment prohibits tax payer funding of abortions.
Mixed in with the hundreds of thousands of other letters already pouring into the House expressing “displeasure” over you name it, the council’s letters needed that extra Berkley touch to get the special attention correspondence from Berkley deserves. And when progressives have the need to express themselves on abortion they usually like to say it with coat hangers.
So with each unhappy letter, the Berkley City Council included a coat hanger. Sure, everyone gets the extremely clever idea. But this tasteless display of feminist effrontery says more about the bitter, obsessive nature of the abortion lobby than anything else.

Fools rush in where journalists tread with respect
Catholic Chris Matthews must have been a hit around the OMSNBC water cooler Monday night. The abject rudeness and sarcasm with which Matthews conducted his interview with a Catholic bishop on the issue of abortion no doubt sent tingly sensations, similar to the ones Chris says he gets when Barack Obama speaks, up the legs of all the pro-abortion gang at the least watched “news” network on television. Rambunctious hugs from Keith Olbermann and Andrea Mitchell. A sisterly kiss from Rachel Maddow. A great night to be a progressive liberal.
Never mind that all the “hits” Matthews thinks, or at least hoped others would think, he scored against Bishop Thomas Tobin, Diocese of Providence, RI, were based upon false premises and liberal claptrap. With the country steadily moving against the liberal false idol of abortion, someone had to get on the air and take the Catholic Church down a peg or two. And the obvious choice was someone who had already shred his dignity and lost all credibility as a journalist. A fool ready to rush in where true journalists tread with respect.

The Stupak-Pitts bill would easily be circumvented
The Pelosicare version of the president’s healthcare takeover bill is scheduled for vote on Friday. Speaker Pelosi’s pride and joy is everything the pro-life community, and the country, feared. HR 3962 is a socialist manifesto comprised of 1990 pages of business and personal mandates, business and individual taxes, penalties, new bureaucracies empowered to make medical decisions, and federal funding for abortion.
The final attempt to eliminate funding for abortion is the Stupak-Pitts Amendment offered by Bart Stupak (D MI) and Joe Pitts (R PA). The Stop The Abortion Mandate website conducted a webcast last night to rally support for the amendment via e-mails and phone calls to House members. And it is incumbent upon us all to work for passage of the Stupak-Pitts amendment.
However, expansion of unrestricted abortion services, cloaked as essential healthcare benefits and fully funded, will be included in any “public option” signed into law by President Barack Obama. Irregardless of passage of Stupak-Pitts.

NOW feigns “outrage” over abortion and Obamacare
Numerous reports abound citing rage on the distant left over President Obama’s alleged moderation on the final version of his “healthcare reform” bill. No “public option”, “opt out” clauses, backroom deals with the satanic health insurance industry and, most laughably, no provisions for abortion.
There are people who are apparently letting their guard down and luxuriating in a long sigh of relief. He’s listening to us. It won’t be as bad as everyone thought. Common sense and responsible government prevails.
Such wishful thinking is, well, foolish. Based upon Barack Obama’s rhetoric and associations during his entire career, the resumes of his cabinet members and “czars”, the radical nature of the democratic leadership and the extremist fringe groups they are beholding to, anyone who succumbs to complacent self delusion about what will come out of Washington on healthcare just ain’t thinkin’ right.« Previous Entries
