Abortion, My Thoughts
In the name of women’s rights the basic right to life of unborn women (and men) is denied. Shouldn’t humans have more rights than sea turtles? Sea turtle eggs are protected by Federal law while a developing human is not. Sea turtle eggs are protected because hatched sea turtles are an endangered species. The eggs are given the same protection as the fully formed sea | Read More »
MAObama’s Coördinated Media Blitz for Hell-th Care: Coming Soon!
You know this is coming: leftist pundits and politicians have signaled that between now and the State of the Union Address there will be another media blitz, like the failed one last summer, to convince everyone that the Hell-th Care Bill is a really, really, really good idea for America. Like the one last summer, there will be a coördinated media extravaganza pushing some specific | Read More »
More Than One Issue
With ObamaCare proving to be a complete Obamination (hey, I made a new word!), this whole debate has left me with a question. I know what the answer to the question currently is, but I would think that many out there would be asking the same question and wondering why no one is Washington takes this point of view. The question is this: Why do | Read More »
We should partial-birth abortion cows and feed it to vegetarians
If abortion isn’t murder, this should be a great solution. You can still eat meat without “killing” anything. We can even call it Superveal. I’ll call PETA and see if they want to invest in my new idea.
My Response to the Senate Cloture Vote on Health Care
Once again the liberal leadership in Washington has used the dark of night to continue the process of shoving health care “reform” down the throats of all Americans. On Saturday Harry Reid threw out his original 2,000 page bill and replaced it with an amendment numbering in the hundreds of pages, leaving other members of the Senate, and the American people, very little time to | Read More »
Conservative Marching Orders 2010 – Make them Pay!
BEN NELSON SOLD OUT HIS COUNTRY, and he ensured the murder of potentially hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of American babies that will never be born. We were all fooled. We thought this man was principled. His vote was sold for guarantees for his state to extend full and permanent funding to everyone below 133% of the federal poverty level. The bill requires all states | Read More »
The Sneaky Abortion Deception in Senator Reid’s “Manager’s Amendment”
When I first read about Senator Harry Reid’s “manager’s amendment” that he persuaded Senator Nelson to endorse today, I commented that it didn’t seem so bad. However, I have now more thoroughly examined the actual text of the manager’s amendment, and it looks to me like Senator Nelson has been tricked. At page 40 of the manager’s amendment, subsection 1303(b)(2)(A) says: (A) IN GENERAL.— If a qualified health | Read More »
Stupak May Yet Be Our Savior
Hard to believe, but Stupak may yet be our savior in torpedoing ObamaCare: An aide to Rep. Bart Stupak (D. Mich.) coordinated opposition to a Senate compromise on the place of abortion in health care legislation this morning with the Republican Senate leadership, the Conference Catholic Bishops, and other anti-abortion groups, according to a chain of frantic emails obtained this morning by POLITICO. Stupak, in | Read More »
Ben Nelson (D) bringing everyone together!
This takes skill – but apparently Reid’s amendment is up to the task. The National Organization of Women: We call on all senators who consider themselves friends of women’s rights to reject the Manager’s Amendment, and if it remains, to defeat this cruelly over-compromised legislation. Planned Parenthood apparently agrees. National Right to Life: NRLC will score the upcoming roll call votes on cloture on the Reid | Read More »
Pro-Life! What The Bible Says.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13) Your hands made me and formed me. (Psalm 119:3) Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. (Jeremiah 1:5) I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm | Read More »
Sen. Nelson (D-NE) Rejects Abortion “Compromise” — Not at Yes is the New No
The left-right-center squeeze is on. (See this post for the latest parade of liberal attacks on the bill.) Now, Senator Ben Nelson has rejected the abortion “compromise” language. It’s not just abortion either, Senator Nelson also cited other concerns he had with the legislation. So, if you are counting Senators who are not YES votes, that count would be: 1. Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) 2. | Read More »
Kudos to Senators Lieberman and Nelson
I telephoned Senator Lieberman’s office today, and urged him to hang tough on health care, and to also support Senator Ben Nelson’s protest against taxpayer subsidies for abortion. As a Connecticut resident, I urge my neighbors in this state to do likewise, and the same goes for anyone else who can afford the phone call. Doubtless there are many things that can be done to improve health care | Read More »
Intellectual Honesty: A Question of Life
Not too long ago, President Obama gave a speech at Notre Dame where he declared that we must be “open to compromise” regarding the abortion “debate.” At the time I thought to myself that this is one debate that should actually be over because I believe that almost everyone is truly pro-life; they’ve simply convinced themselves that an unborn baby is not a life. They | Read More »
Sen. Ben Nelson: I will not vote to end the filibuster
Everyone in the country closely following the ObamaCare saga have been waiting for Senator Nelson (D-NE) to give us a sense of where he is on the bill since his abortion restriction amendment failed last week. Yesterday, Senator Nelson — a long time pro-lifer — said: “I can’t support cloture [ending the filibuster] on the next round,” and that adds a second large monkey wrench | Read More »
California Senate Candidate Backs Choice
Have you heard the latest from Barbara Boxer? The men who have brought us this don’t single out a procedure that’s used by a man, or a drug that is used by a man, that involves his reproductive health care and say they have to get a special rider. There’s nothing in this amendment that says if a man some days wants to buy Viagra, | Read More »
