Appropriate Care: What’s In A Word?

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

ambulance_pp-240x221
I always tell my children that it’s very important to choose your words wisely because language is very important. The use of a certain word instead of a different word can send someone a very different message or leave some message open for interpretation.

A recent video that went viral this past week has a Planned Parenthood lobbyist, Alisa LaPolt Snow, advocating for post-birth abortion. When asked by Chairman Boyd: “So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief. If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”

Miss Snow [answered] (PP): “Um, well, we believe that any decision is made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.”

She did not choose her words wisely because it sent the Florida lawmakers into disbelief at Planned Parenthood’s stance of the care that should be given to a child that is born alive after a botched abortion; or did she, which would make the Florida lawmaker’s shock and disbelief an appropriate response.

After this video went viral, outraged pro-lifers called for Planned Parenthood to condemn Miss Snow’s comments. Planned Parenthood’s response? “. . . of course Planned Parenthood would provide appropriate care to both the woman and the infant.”

“Appropriate care?” Again, words chosen very carefully I’m sure. A few seconds earlier, “appropriate care” was trying to kill the infant. And now, seconds later, with a live baby on the table, with both the doctor and the mother wanting (and wishing) that that baby was dead, we’re supposed to want the baby to receive “appropriate care” from this doctor? The mother, for whatever reasons she sought out the abortion in the first place, and the doctor, because he botched the abortion and didn’t do his ‘job’ right, should not be trusted with this baby’s life.

Why didn’t Planned Parenthood’s statement say “. . . of course Planned Parenthood would do everything to ensure the survival of the baby.”

Words – they are very important and telling.

Abortion Movement Exposes Its Heart of Darkness

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: April 4, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement as the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell continued to unfold in Philadelphia this week:

“The trial of abortionist Gosnell takes place while additional events show us how destructive the abortion movement is and how compassionate the pro-life movement is.

“During these days, a lobbyist from Planned Parenthood said it was up to the woman, her family and her physician whether a baby born alive after a failed abortion should be allowed to live. Also, this Friday, April 5, a mass and banquet will be held in Philadelphia to honor two families — that of Terri Schiavo and of Baby Joseph — both of whom were born victims of the Culture of Death that deprived them of ordinary care because they were disabled.

“By contrast, in these days, pregnancy center directors from across the nation gather in Dallas to increase their knowledge and skills in serving moms, dads, and families who fear they have no alternative but abortion. The conference of Heartbeat International will reaffirm these individuals in their life-giving mission.

“If America pays attention in these days, it will see a contrast worth noting, and a modern-day illustration of the age-old choice before us all: I have set before you life and blessings, death and curses. Choose life!”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Remembering Uncle M. L.: Alveda King reflects on the death of the Dreamer

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

MLK Collage

Forty-five years ago today, my Uncle M.L., the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered by an assassin’s bullet. Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if that shot had never been fired; what our nation would be like if that bullet had missed. Many are the times I wish he were here.

But though Uncle M.L. is no longer with us on earth, his voice lives on in the words he used to change our nation in the cause of justice.

We are a more just society today because of Martin Luther King, Jr. Not because he brought new ideas into the public consciousness, but because he reminded us of fundamental, eternal truths – truths that needed to be restated and lived out. He once asked and answered this question: “How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust?” He went on to explain:

“A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: ‘An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

These timeless truths must be restated again today.

Remember Reverend Martin Luther King – let us not forget that he was an ordained Baptist minister and preacher of the Word of God – taught that we are to respect the law. But he also taught that there is a law higher than man’s. There are no commands more deserving of obedience than God’s.

Those commands caused Uncle M. L. to look beyond city ordinances, state statutes, or even federal law for guidance. He believed that those ordinances, statutes, and laws were to be respected, but that they were to be weighed against God’s law or what some would term natural law to determine if they were just.

The same is true today. But some still look to themselves to determine right and wrong.

We are told by the Obama administration that it is “unjust” that women should have to buy their own birth control pills, so everyone else must reach into their pockets to pay for them.

We are told by abortion advocates that it is “unjust” that some women cannot afford to abort their babies, so tax dollars must be used to finance the killing of those children.

We are told by same-sex “marriage” advocates that it is “unjust” that men cannot marry other men and women cannot marry other women, so 2,000 years of wisdom must be abandoned.

And yet, the Bible tells us that human life is sacred. We are thereby to choose life over abortion. The Bible teaches us that natural marriage between one man and one woman is part of the procreative process. We are thereby compelled to choose holy and procreative matrimony.

In forgetting our heritage, in distancing ourselves from God’s moral rules, we are doing Uncle M. L. a disservice, and we are in danger of coming face to face with disaster. So, in remembering Uncle M. L. today, I urge America and the world to remember that he was a servant of God who, though imperfect, tried to point people to the truth.

Lukewarm Promises: Prolife claims are big during election, cool off when time to deliver

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

130319 blog image

I joined my good friend Catherine Davis a few days ago for a day of “Women at the Capitol” here in Georgia to visit the Governor to ask him to enforce the laws of Georgia which are designed to protect women. Catherine was joined by a group of about 100 concerned citizens, men and women, who are adamant about “Women taking back Choice” which included having Georgia’s abortion mills comply with minimal health standards that will protect our women.

s Day of Mourning 014When Catherine and I went in to ask to speak to the Governor, Nathan Deal, we were told that he couldn’t see us, and asked to fill out a request form to see him at a later date. However, the Governor was “at home” to several other visitors during the day. An aide did finally speak with Catherine and other members of her group later in the day to explain that the Governor “doesn’t do investigations.” Now bear in mind that we didn’t ask the Governor to investigate anything, we just asked him to uphold the laws that he is sworn to uphold. We didn’t ask him to write any legislation, pass any bills or mount any investigations. We just wanted to ask Governor Deal to help the women of Georgia. No good old southern hospitality was offered that day, only a few bags of peanuts were offered, while we watched other perhaps nonthreatening groups be allowed to receive a smile from the Governor.

We find that these scenarios are playing out across the country. Alabama, Mississippi, for instance, and several states have passed promising protection laws for women and babies, but the enforcement and investigation process is being held up in many cases. All across the country, politicians are running on prolife platforms, then even when prolife legislation is passed, governors, state licensing and health boards and other less visible sources are blocking real progress by failing to either enforce or investigate compliance requirements for the abortion industry to come up to even substandard levels of care for women who are being maimed, butchered and sometimes killed in the name of abortion.

There is a lot of word play going on, like with the Governor’s office. We asked for enforcement and were told that he doesn’t investigate. They know what we mean and what we need, but aren’t trying to help us, and maybe are hoping that we don’t come up with just the right “code” to get the answers that will help us.

This isn’t about the current governor of Georgia or any other single politician, because as Catherine and I discovered when another administration was in power, many states don’t really intend to help women. They just want to say and do enough to continue to elect acceptable candidates who can allow the abortion industry to continue to do business as usual. As far as the other administration was concerned, the then Speaker of the House was heard saying in a closed meeting” “We can’t really end abortion. That will leave too many black babies on the dole.” Sounds Nixonish doesn’t it?

Catherine, Day Gardner and I did a Black History Month expose on Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards and then President Nixon saying about the same thing, of course in a more crude language. President Nixon was lauding the efforts of the population control community to “kill the little Black b*!@–.” Cecile Richards applauded Mr. Nixon and even went so far to say that the Republican Party should go back to those “roots” which would mean that they would join the Democrat Party in enforcing and funding abortion at every level.

Let’s not be fooled, and let’s not throw in the towel. The battle is still raging. Let’s see this thing through. May God please help us to rip off all the blinders and let our women be healed and our babies see the light!

Abortion: Nothing Is Sacred, Not Even Grandmothers

Monday, March 18th, 2013

SPACER
I’m a grandmother too and I can only imagine what was going through her mind when Rae Stabosz was attacked by a woman while filming a botched abortion incident.

The abortion industry will go to any lengths to keep the public from learning the truth about what really happens behind the doors of the abortion killing centers. There are times when the babies are not the only ones that are hurt by these “doctors.” And it happens more often that you think.

If any other business had this track records with hurting women, they would be shut down in a heartbeat. It makes you wonder how they get away with it.

Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood Praises Richard Nixon’s Progressive Idea of Family Planning to Abort ‘Little Black Bastards’ During ‘Age of Enlightenment’

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Cecile Richards, head of notorious abortion provider, Planned Parenthood celebrates President Richard Nixon who supported aborting black babies, calling them “little black bastards.”

Outraged black leaders launched a video that includes statements made by Richards exposing the racial impetus of Richard Nixon’s and Planned Parenthood’s mission.

Video link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXap-OtDvVc

“2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, 50th anniversary of MLK’s I have a dream speech, yet we find blacks are still shackled, supporting an organization that considers aborting ‘little black bastards’ an age of enlightenment,” said Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, referring to a comment made by Cecile Richards.

“For years Planned Parenthood has denied its founder’s Negro Project was aimed at controlling the black birth rate. On November 7, 2012 Cecile Richards finally took the shroud off their secret. In light of this revelation, we call on the Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, one of America’s last bastions of racism,” said Catherine Davis.

“Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood openly support a racist agenda. Cecile poured accolades on Richard Nixon — a man who spoke arrogantly about abortion being used to kill off what he called ‘the little black bastards,’ said Day Gardner. “Richard Nixon was an ignorant, racist, foul-mouthed crook. The fact that Planned Parenthood’s president has the nerve to put Nixon on a pedestal for killing children proves what we have been saying all along. Planned Parenthood’s business model is exactly the same as when Margaret Sanger launched the hellish Negro Project in 1939,” said Gardner.

“What’s so bad about all of this is that some black organizations, such as the NAACP, are in bed with Planned Parenthood; promoting a false gospel; sacrificing our babies, our sons and our daughters on the altar of abortion while promoting the lie that contraceptives and abortion are somehow good for our communities. They are prostituting our culture and this flies in the face of God,” said Alveda King.

“Cecile Richards is wrong, dead wrong! The Nixon era was not an age of enlightenment but rather an age of sleazy back room deals, lies, confusion, scandal and racism…an age that ushered in a wave of brutal dismemberment and torture culminating in the deaths of more than 55 million babies…17 million ‘little black bastards’ DEAD — according to Cecile Richard’s idol.” concluded Gardner.

National Black Prolife Coalition (NBPC) Attacked for Fighting to Save Black Babies

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Klan Parenthood

Philadelphia’s Tara Murtha’s article entitled “Propaganda Film Exploits Gosnell Tragedy to Promote Conspiracy Theory” misleads people and promotes the continuation of the same old abortion practices that allowed the Gosnells of the world to continue to hurt women and kill babies.

With the use of such slanted language like “propaganda, ” “anti-choice,” and “conspiracy theory” Ms. Murtha’s clearly shows herself to be a mouthpiece for the abortion industry.

In the article she echoes Planned Parenthood’s misleading claim that “abortion only represents three percent of Planned Parenthood’s services.” A claim that they make because of, among other things, “unbundling” of services related to abortion. A practice whereby they see a patient over a couple of days for an abortion and they classify some of the services like the pregnancy test, or the initial exam as not part of the abortion but list it under other services. Whatever the percentage of their business that they count as abortion services, they are leading the charge to legally murder over 55 million babies to date. Add this to the fact that they performed a record number of abortions as reported in their 2012 annual report, 333,964, percentages don’t really mean a lot.

Another statement made by Ms. Murtha clearly showed that she is not really concerned about the facts. She states that “Right Wing Watch took notice of the group [NBPC] for posting billboard campaigns in Atlanta with slogans like, “Abortion Makes Three-Fifths Human Seem Overly Generous.” A fact which is disputed by Ryan Bomberger in a comment he left where he states, “Not that frothing liberal sources like Right Wing Watch ever bother to check the facts, the Atlanta “Juneteenth” billboard campaign wasn’t even sponsored by the National Black Prolife Coalition. It was solely created and launched by The Radiance Foundation. But it’s not accuracy you seek, simply animosity.”

With regards to “conspiracy theory,” the numbers don’t lie. Blacks make up about 12 percent of the population yet account for about 35 percent of the abortions in this country. Approximately 79 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. In New York about 60 percent of black babies are aborted. More black babies are aborted than are born alive. That’s a result of a group being targeted for elimination, not conspiracy theory. That’s GENOCIDE! Clear and simple!

You’re Teaching My Child What?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

SPACERYoureTeachingMyChildWhatA recent article from the UK caught my eye this week. It talked about the corruption of our current generation. The sexualisation of our young people is something I‘ve blogged about and something that needs to be re-visited.

The article is written by a child psychologist who states, “I see the signs that are familiar to every parent: the eight-year-olds who are already worried about their figures; the ‘too-sexy too-soon’ 12-year-olds who won’t go out without make-up; the magazines aimed at 10 to14-year-olds that discuss oral sex.”

As a parent I understand the need to shelter our children from learning some things too early in life, like sex. As a pro-life activist, one of the areas we try to shelter our children from is learning about abortion and those images of aborted babies. In a perfect world the teaching of our children would be left up to the parents.

Once source that is trying to do the educating and stick its nose where it doesn’t belong is the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood in particular. Planned parenthood has gotten the foot in the door in many of our children’s schools to “educate” them in the area of sexual education. Talking about a conflict of interest.

Planned parenthood makes millions of dollars by performing abortions. They have a vested interested in making sure your child is sexually active and with any luck, and a lot of help from them, they’ll end up pregnant and in need of their services.

A recent video from American Life League demonstrates the role Planned Parenthood is playing to accomplish this end.

No condomAnother tactic the abortion industry uses to make sure your children need abortions is to use contraception that they knew will fail as admitted by Carol Everett, former independent abortion clinic owner, in the documentary film Bloodmoney available HERE.

We as a society need to not be afraid to speak the truth but first you must know the truth.

Parents, your children are learning about sex at an earlier age these days and the information they are getting is not always accurate or morally correct. And they’re not being told the truth about abortion and the harm it will do to their lives.

Parents, educate yourselves about abortion. Learn what they don’t want you to know and then teach your children. The life you save may be your grandchild’s.

UPDATE: Patient Carhart Killed is Identified and Pro-Life Leaders Call for Investigation of Carhart

Friday, February 15th, 2013

SPACER

(From L-R, Tonya Reaves, Jennifer Morbelli, Marla, and Christin Gilbert)

(From L-R, Tonya Reaves, Jennifer Morbelli, Marla, and Christin Gilbert)

As many of you may already know, another woman has died at the hands of an abortionist. Her name was Jennifer McKenna-Morbelli. Also dead is her 33-week-old preborn daughter, Madison Leigh. Both died at the hands of late-term abortionists LeRoy Carhart at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, MD.

You can read a detailed account of what happened at Jill Stanek’s blog HERE.

Since news of this recent killing many in the pro-life community is calling for an intense investigation into her death and the practices of LeRoy Carhart. Among those calling for an investigation is our own Fr. Frank Pavone. HERE is what he had to say.

Jennifer is not the first woman that Carhart has killed. In 2005 he performed an abortion on Christin Gilbert what resulted in her death. Operation Rescue tried to get justice for Christin but was unsuccessful. Read her story HERE.

Although the abortion industry likes to say that abortions should be rare and safe, they are neither. Priests for Life has joined forces with Operation Rescue and Life Dynamics to bring attention to the many deaths of women who have had abortions in a new project at safeandlegal.com

All this news comes on the heels of the death of Tonya Reaves who was killed after a botched second- trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Chicago. The National Black Prolife Coalition has worked tirelessly to bring attention to this terrible tragedy. Just recently the Thomas More Society, acting on behalf of the Pro-Life Action League, has formally requested that the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation investigate the death of Tonya Reaves, the 24-year-old who died last July 20 after suffering a Chicago Planned Parenthood abortion. Read more HERE.

Much is happening in the pro-life world. Many states are passing pro-life legislation with 2012 recording record numbers of bills passed.

Abortion is being exposed! We will abolish abortion!

All the lies that the abortion industry has been telling are coming unraveled; are dying. As my Uncle M.L. said, “A lie cannot live.” In the end, truth will always prevail over lies, light over darkness, and life over death.

Smiles of Victory

“The joy of The Lord is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10

Walter Hoye at NAACP Protest

Our good friend Rev. Walter Hoye of www.issues4life.org and a youth for life took a moment at the NAACP Image Awards Protest during Black History Month to show the world a victory smile.

Black Prolife leaders from across the country led the protest in LA on February 1, 2013. The night before, the National Black Prolife Coalition and Students for Life hosted a Maafa21.com screening at the University of Southern California.

Bryan with YouthsThe youth in the picture with Walter and the hundreds of thousands of youth who attend the walks and marches are proof positive that we are winning because God hears the cries of the children and the repentant prayers of the elders.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14

In light of recent developments, including the NAACP exposé and uncovering of the truth that abortions and contraceptives kill babies and their mothers, we thank God that the truth is getting out.

The NAACP doesn’t like the light of truth being shined on them that they will go to any length to stop us as evident by the recent threat of legal action against Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation, a bullying tactive in an attempt to silence someone who is simply telling the truth.

In the battle to defund planned parenthood and recall abortion, we are always encouraged when the young people join the fight.
