Abortion Facts, Stop Abortion vs. Barbarian Planned Parenthood

Remembering the Aborted

What do you do with an aborted baby?

Do you send the child’s body to a power plant where he or she is burned to generate energy?

stop-abortionThat’s what was happening when the British Columbia Health Ministry admitted in 2014 that it shipped aborted babies to Oregon, where a “waste-to-energy” plant used them to produce electrical power for a local utility.

Do you store the aborted baby’s remains in the kitchen?

That’s what abortionist Kermit Gosnell did. When investigators raided the now-convicted-murderer’s Philadelphia clinic in 2010 on drug related charges, they found babies’ dismembered feet inside jars and their bodies stashed in milk jugs, orange juice cartons and cat food containers.

Do you sell the baby’s heart, liver and brain for research?

That’s the practice in abortion clinics that has first uncovered in 1997. This year Congress has launched an investigation that is still ongoing.

But if you don’t consider aborted babies to be a renewable energy source, collectables, or troves of salvageable organs you can use to “diversify” your “revenue stream,” what do you do with them?

You treat them as the humans they are.

That’s what Texas and other states are trying to do.  And it’s what the upcoming National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on September 10 — an event I co-founded — is all about.

abortion-quoteTexas’s Health and Human Services Commission has proposed rules that would require aborted babies’ bodies to be cremated or buried, just like the remains of born people. A spokesman for the commission said that the new regulations will ensure that: “Texas law maintains the highest standards of human dignity.”

Naturally, the nation’s leading degrader of human dignity — the abortion industry — opposes the move. Planned Parenthood, which is already suing Indiana over its new statute governing fetal remains, has announced its objections to the Texas regulations. The abortion business says that the babies it kills should continue to be treated as medical waste — incinerated or ground up and dumped into landfills. The Center for Reproductive Rights, one of the legal arms of the pro-abortion movement, has already threatened a lawsuit.

The abortion industry opposes the burial or cremation of aborted babies because such acts, by acknowledging the humanity of these tiny children, highlight the inhumanity of abortion.

Media bias on abortion

Media bias on abortion

The National Day of Remembrance, on the other hand, is an annual observance that affirms the humanity of little ones who were unwanted and responds to them appropriately, by holding simultaneous memorial services at gravesites where aborted babies are buried. Such an observance points to a Culture of Life, in which mourning such children is the dominant response to their violent deaths — rather than ignoring them or rationalizing those deaths.

A project of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, the Pro-Life Action League, and the organization I lead, Priests for Life, the National Day of Remembrance was born after many years of ceremonies across the country memorializing babies whose bodies had been relegated to the status of trash by the abortion industry.

abortion3-pro-lifeAs one of the co-founders of the National Day, Priests for Life has always acted on the truth that you don’t stop treating a person with respect when they die. On behalf of Priests for Life, I have participated in burial and memorial services for aborted babies across the country, such as in 2008 when I conducted the funeral for three aborted babies at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament that EWTN’s Mother Angelica built in Hanceville, Alabama.

On last year’s National Day of Remembrance, I participated in a memorial service at the gravesite of 16,431 aborted babies. Yes, you read that number correctly.

Back in 1982, the remains of more than 16,000 unborn children were found in the repossessed storage container of a Los Angeles area pathologist. The pathologist had received the bodies from several abortion clinics and kept them in a container at his residence. Three years after the discovery, and over the objections of the abortion lobby, the babies were finally allowed to be interred at a secular cemetery in what is the largest such burial spot for the unborn in the country.

abortion-2-pro-lifeGravesites for the aborted, while not common, are not unusual either. On September 10, National Day of Remembrance ceremonies will be held at 50 such sites and over 135 other memorial spots nationwide. In total, more than 560 locations have been created to honor the tens of millions who have lost their lives to the abortionist’s lethal tools.

Participation in these services is meaningful and important. Standing beside the marker for an unnamed child brings home the reality, brutality and finality of abortion. At the grave, it becomes clear that the premature ending of a baby’s life is not an abstraction, but a physical reality. It’s also a call to action to protect those still in danger.

Abortion propagandists want us to treat the unborn as anything but human, so they fight tooth and nail to stop any effort like Texas’s proposed regulation on the disposition of aborted babies. They want babies treated like cancerous tumors.

Our acquiescence to abortionists’ lies keeps them in business, fills mothers with regret, and destroys lives.  Instead, let us treat each other, including the unborn, as we would want to be treated. By mourning the babies who have been killed, let us advance a culture of life.

Christian News: Voter Guide; Pope Francis defends Abortion?

Christian News:

Christian Voter Guide

afaactionvoter-guideAFA Action releases 2016 voter guide

March 2016 – Many Christians want to vote but aren’t sure who to vote for. It’s difficult to sift through the vast amounts of information coming through television, radio, and Internet.

In fact, one study revealed that only 10% of voters feel they have enough information on candidates to be an informed voter in primary or general elections.

Now AFA Action (afaaction.net) can help with its 2016 Voter Guide.

The guide provides an in-depth, web-based, and nonpartisan perspective on the candidates. It allows voters to identify where the candidates fall on a scale from “very liberal” to “very conservative” and everywhere in between.

The voter guide looks at the history of each candidate so voters can see for themselves how candidates have voted in the past; to whom the candidates have given money; from whom the candidates received money; how the candidates answered questions on critical issues; and who endorsed each candidate.

“Changing presidential candidate poll numbers indicate that many voters are uncertain about who they’ll vote for,” said Randy Sharp, AFA director of special projects. “Our voter guide provides them with reliable and factual content so they can be informed and not misled by slickly-produced campaign ads that often hide the truth.”

In addition, AFA Action provides voters with critical tools, such as instant access to contacting elected officials, voter registration helps, apps, and a pledge that supporters can sign to continue receiving updates from AFA Action.

“We encourage our supporters to share the voter guide with friends and family,” Sharp said. “They can also follow us on Facebook at AFA Action or Twitter at @AFAAction.”

Pope Francis defends Abortion?

Has the Pope Fallen Off the Pro-Life Wagon?

Alan Keyes

abortion5-jesus-pro-lifeLittle children it is the last hour: just as you have heard, Antichrist is come, and even now many Antichrists have come to be, by which we know that it is the last hour. 1 John 2:18

Thus sinning against your brothers, and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ. 1 Corinthians 8:10

Since Christ made it clear (Matthew 24:36) that even he does not know the day and hour when heaven and earth will pass away, I have never wasted much time on people who think they have figured it out. Yet Christ also made it plain to his disciples that they should always be on guard, so “that day will not come upon you suddenly like a trap.” It seems best to heed the familiar motto and “Be Prepared”.

Be that as it may, every now and then something happens that sorely tries my determination to forego the search for certainty about eschatological things. I experienced such a moment this weekend, as I read a story with the headline “Pope calls Italy’s foremost abortion promoter one of nation’s ‘forgotten greats’.” As I read the story I couldn’t repress a rueful sigh. Sometimes it seems as if Pope Francis is determined to purge all humor from the phrase “more Catholic than the Pope.” Will we see the day when any Christian person who refuses to praise those who practice or lure others into practicing the wicked slaughter of innocents (I think they qualify as what the Bible calls “workers of iniquity.”) will fit that description?

What a falling off is there! From one supposed to be the Vicar of Christ, comes praise of one who represents those whom God hates (Psalm 5:5). Emma Bonino has been called the Margaret Sanger of Italy.

Young people positive on everything but …

AFA-millennialMarch 2016 – The Millennial generation (born 1980 or later) has a more positive view than any other generation on every societal institution except church and religious organizations. Compared to older generations, Millennials have a more favorable opinion on the positive effects of small and large businesses, financial institutions, labor unions, the energy industry, national news media, colleges and universities, and the entertainment industry. Millennials’ rating of most types of institutions has grown more favorable in the time between the last poll on the subject in 2010 and Pew Research’s most current poll in 2015.

Only two institutions received a more negative rating by Millennials in 2015 than in 2010 – the news media (still regarded more favorably than by other generations), and the church and religious organizations. In 2010, 73% of Millennials said churches and religious institutions have a positive effect on the way things are going in America. Now, only 55% of Millennials agree with that statement. The change means Millennials have gone from polling with an opinion of the church eight points higher than any other generation to polling six points lower than any other.

Tune in to your teens with listening ear

teenagerSonAndMomMarch 2016 – “When your teenagers are talking about their concerns, stop what you’re doing and listen,” said parenting expert Mark Gregston. “When you pay attention with your eyes … it shows you care about them.”

Gregston, founder of Heartlight Ministries, also suggested that moms and dads ask follow-up questions, letting teens know their words are being heard.

Heartlight (heartlightministries.org) began in 1988 when Gregston and his wife Jan began building a place of hope for parents and restoration for struggling teens. Today, the ministry’s East Texas campus offers a residency program with a rigorous spiritual component to help teens integrate Christian faith into all aspects of life.

Fewer clients, more funding for Planned Parenthood

AFA-Planned-Parenthood-chartMarch 2016 – The 2014-2015 annual report from Planned Parenthood reveals that, while the abortion industry giant received a $25 million increase in federal funding, it saw nearly one million fewer clients come through its doors.

In the 2013-2014 report, Planned Parenthood recorded $528.4 million in government health services grants and reimbursements and 2.7 million patients. In 2014-15, those numbers changed to $553.7 million and 1.5 million patients. The total number of services Planned Parenthood reported for 2014-15 was 9,455,582 – of which 324,000 were abortions – and in the year before, 10,590,433 total services with 327,000 abortions. Of Planned Parenthood’s total revenue of $1.297 billion for 2014-15, $309.2 million came from its non-government funded health services.

Terrorism concern highest since 9/11

AFA-islam-concernMarch 2016 – Political correctness and media bias continue to disallow any connection, but the American public continues to see the parallel between terrorist attacks and radical Islam. For the first time since 2006, Americans worry about terrorism more than the economy. A CBS News poll in December 2015 found that 14% of voters say terrorism is their top concern, compared to 12% who say the economy.

In addition, 44%, the highest percentage since 9/11, fear another terrorist attack. That fear has been heightened since the November massacre, when a woman (who publicly pledged to the Islamic State) and her husband murdered 14 and injured 21 others in San Bernardino, California.

CDC: gay lifestyle more violent

March 2016 – In the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey measuring violence according to sexual orientation, Centers for Disease Control found that those in homosexual and bisexual relationships experience more violence from their partners than do heterosexuals. While 26% of homosexual men and 37% of bisexual men experience rape, physical violence, or stalking, women experience even more violence in same sex relationships. Forty-four percent of lesbians and 61% of bisexual women encounter sexual violence.

In comparison, 16% of heterosexual women have felt endangered or threatened by stalking, 9% experience rape, and 35% experience at least one of the three types of sexual assault from a male partner.

Global responses to persecution vary

AFA-christian-persecutionMarch 2016 – At the December conference “Under Caesar’s Sword” in Rome, Italy, researchers from University of Notre Dame and Georgetown University examined how Christians respond to persecution in countries around the globe. Estimates indicate that 80% of instances of religious persecution are carried out against Christians, but Christian responses vary depending on the form of persecution.

In places such as Syria and Nigeria, where Christians are openly attacked, they are more likely to flee, whereas they may try to live quietly and cope under unfriendly state governments in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, or Afghanistan.

While there have been instances of terrorized Christians taking up arms in self-defense in places such as Nigeria, researchers note that these examples have been remarkably few. Far more often, Christians do not retaliate with violence.

“In 2013, dozens of Christian churches were burned down, and the response was to paint on their crumbling walls: ‘Love your enemy,’” said Egyptian Coptic Christian Bishop Anba Angaelos.

In Western Europe and countries such as the U.S. and Indonesia, where persecution is largely faced in attempts to exclude Christian faith from the public arena, Christians actively seek to advocate for themselves by addressing social, cultural, and political issues.

The  Reason This Congressman Walked Out of the State of the Union

Leah Jessen

keyRep. Steve King left President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address to pray for the nation’s unborn babies.

King, R-Iowa, said he prayed in the Congressional Prayer Room “for God to raise up a leader whom he will use to restore the soul of America.”

King walked out of the U.S. House chamber minutes before Obama’s speech Tuesday night, leaving his chair on the House floor empty. He also left his guest gallery seat open to honor aborted babies.

Steve King, Pro-Life Congressman

Steve King, Pro-Life Congressman

“[Obama] has reserved an empty seat next to the First Lady to commemorate ‘the victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice,’” King said in a formal statement, adding:

There will be another empty seat in the gallery during Obama’s last State of the Union address. I have reserved it to commemorate the lives of more than 55 million aborted babies, ‘the chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world.’

The Congressional Prayer Room, near the Capitol Rotunda, has been set aside since 1955 for individual members of the House and Senate who wish to retreat for quiet prayer and reflection.

The pro-life conservative announced his plans earlier in the day before Obama gave his annual address to the Congress.

obama-abortion-p-parenthood“President Obama’s first official act, immediately upon his inauguration was to sign an executive order to accelerate abortions worldwide,” King said:

The first tears we have seen him shed in seven years were for the victims of the tragic Sandy Hook School shooting.

As far as we know, Obama has never shed a single tear for even one of the more than 9 million babies aborted under his watch. He is the most pro-abortion president ever.

The White House announced Sunday that a seat would be left vacant for victims of what it calls gun violence.

“I cannot abide sitting in there and being lectured one more time,” King told reporters.

Thus, King exited Obama’s address and retreated to pray, explaining, as The Blaze reported:

So I left my gallery seat empty, and my seat in the House chambers empty in commemoration of those who’ve never had a voice, not those who no longer have a voice, but those unborn babies who have never had a voice—and I’m going to the members’ chapel, where I’m going to spend my time there praying for the unborn, praying for the restoration of the Constitution and that God will raise up a leader whom he will use to restore the soul of America.

obama-checks-balancesFinally, a Strategy to Stop, and Checkmate Obama’s Executive Orders

This is a great plan, but I’m not holding my breath. What Congress says and what they do are not the same. ~C.D.

Many of President Obama’s executive orders—whether the most recent ones calling for more gun control or past ones extending amnesty to millions here illegally—are already being or will one day be challenged in the courts.

This is why it’s encouraging to see reports this week that lawmakers may finally make a real effort to checkmate the president’s proclivity to go around them and create laws on his own. It’s a strategy grassroots activists should demand.

GOPStopObamaPIXThough Congress has given up much of its power when it comes to using its “power of the purse” to stop executive overreach, there is one power it still holds, and there is absolutely no reason not to use it. Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, popularly known as “Advise and Consent,” requires the Senate to approve all presidential appointments of cabinet officials, ambassadors, and federal judges.

GOP Sells America Down the River

PLannedParenthood5It fully funds Planned Parenthood.  That, to me, is unforgivable, with everything now known about what goes on behind closed doors at Planned Parenthood, and that the federal government, led by a Republican Party, sees fit to pay for it.  It is beyond comprehension, and it is a total squandering of moral authority to fully fund the butchery at Planned Parenthood. 

This spending bill fully pays for Obama’s refugee plans, fully.  This spending bill, this budget bill quadruples the number of visas GW-Summit-obama-vs-ISIS-cartoonObama wants for foreign workers.  This is even a slap at American union workers.  Not the leaders.  The union leaders seem to be in favor of it, but blue-collar people, known as working people, have been sold down the river along with everybody else here.

This spending bill even fully pays for every dime asked for by Obama on all of this idiocy that’s tied up into climate change.  Everything Obama wanted, everything he asked for, he got.  You go down the list of things, it’s there. ~Rush Limbaugh

Betrayal-GOP-pc-liberal-treason-Sam-CliffPaul Ryan Betrays America: $1.1 Trillion, 2,000-Plus Page Omnibus Bill Funds ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’

Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI)58% first major legislative achievement is a total and complete sell-out of the American people masquerading as an appropriations bill.

Too harsh, you say? Let the programs, the spending, and the implications speak for themselves.

(1) Ryan’s Omnibus Fully Funds DACA

Though much of the public attention has surrounded the President’s 2014 executive amnesty, the President’s 2012 amnesty quietly continues to churn out work permits and federal benefits for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens. Paul Ryan’s bill funds entirely this 2012 executive amnesty for “DREAMers”—or illegal immigrants who came to the country as minors.

Specifically, Division F of Ryan’s omnibus bill contains no language that would prohibit the use of funds to continue the President’s unconstitutional program. Obama’s executive action, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), has granted around 700,000 illegal aliens with work permits, as well as the ability to receive tax credits and federal entitlement programs. A recent GAO report documented how this illegal amnesty program for alien youth is, in large part, responsible for the illegal alien minor surge on our southern border.

In 2013, Paul Ryan said that it is his job as a U.S. lawmaker to put himself in the shoes of “the DREAMer who is waiting” and work to find legislative solutions to his or her problems.

(2) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Sanctuary Cities

Five months ago, 32-year-old Kate Steinle was bleeding to death in her father’s arms. She was gunned down in broad daylight by a five-time deported criminal alien whose presence in the country was the direct result of San Francisco’s refusal to comply with U.S. immigration law—yet Paul Ryan’s omnibus rewards these lawless Sanctuary Cities with federal grants. Division B Title II of Ryan’s omnibus funds various grant programs for the Department of Justice (pages 167, 168, and 169) and contains no language that would restrict the provision of such grants to sanctuary jurisdictions.

In a Congressional hearing, Steinle’s father demanded Congressional action and recalled his daughter’s dying words: “Help me, Dad.”

(3) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds All Refugee Programs

Despite broad support amongst Republican lawmakers for a proposal introduced by

Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX)64%

to halt all refugee resettlement, Ryan’s appropriations bill will fund President Obama’s refugee resettlement operation and will allow for the admission of tens of thousands of refugees with access to federal benefits. Division H Title II of Ryan’s bill contains appropriations of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and contains no language that would restrict the program. Nor are there any restrictions for the program in Division K of Ryan’s bill, which provides funding for the Department of State, which oversees refugee admissions.

Ryan is not one of the 84 cosponsors of Babin’s bill to halt the refugee operation, and he recently told Sean Hannity that he does not support halting resettlement because, “We’re a compassionate country. The refugees laws are important laws.” Similarly, this outcome represents a legislative win for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79%, who told Sean Hannity he’d “hate to use” Congress’s power of the purse to deny funding for Obama’s resettlement operation.

gop-betrayal-backstab(4) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds All of the Mideast Immigration Programs That Have Been Exploited by Terrorists in Recent Years 

Although multiple immigrant and visa programs in recent years have been exploited by terrorists (such as the F-1 “student” visa, the K-1 “fiancée” visa, and our green card and refugee programs), Ryan’s proposal does nothing to limit admissions from jihadist-prone regions. As Senators Shelby and Sessions of Alabama noted in a joint statement: “The omnibus would put the U.S. on a path to approve admission for hundreds of thousands of migrants from a broad range of countries with jihadists movements over the next 12 months, on top of all the other autopilot annual immigration.”

ImmigrationCriminals(5) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Illegal Alien Resettlement

On page 917 of Ryan’s omnibus a section titled “Refugee and Entrant Assistance” funds the President’s resettlement of illegal immigrant border crossers.

(6) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds the Release of Criminal Aliens

Senior legislative aides tell Breitbart News that Ryan’s bill does not do anything to change the enforcement priorities that Jeh Johnson established a little over a year ago that would shield entire categories of criminal aliens from immigration law, nor does it include language recommended by Sessions and Shelby to “deny the expenditure of funds to issue visas to countries that refuse to repatriate criminal aliens.”

(7) Ryan’s Omnibus Quadruples H-2B Foreign Worker Visas 

dishonesty1Despite Ryan’s pledge not to move an immigration compromise with President Obama, tucked 700 pages into Ryan’s spending bill is language that would resuscitate and expand a controversial provision of the Schumer-Rubio Gang of Eight plan to increase the H-2B visa program.

The provision “would quadruple the number of H-2B visas for unskilled guest workers, for a total of more than 250,000,” writes immigration attorney Ian Smith. The Americans who fill these jobs are typically “society’s most vulnerable — including single women, the disabled, the elderly, minorities, teenagers, students, and first-generation immigrants,”  Smith explains.

A recent BuzzFeed exposé revealed how this program allows businesses to discriminate against American workers and “deliberately den[y] jobs to American workers so they can hire foreign workers on H-2 visas instead.” As one GOP aide told Breitbart News, “This provision is a knife in the heart of the working class, and African Americans.”

ObamaMoneyPile(8) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Tax Credits for Illegal Aliens

Ryan’s bill preserves the expansion of the President’s expiring child tax credits without any accompanying language to prevent illegal aliens from receiving those tax credits. While Sen. Sessions attempted to include language in the bill that would prevent illegal immigrants from receiving tax credits, his recommendation was rejected.

(9) Ryan’s Omnibus Locks-In Huge Spending Increases

The bill funds the Obama-Boehner budget deal, which eliminated spending caps, and will increase both defense and non-defense spending next year by $25 billion more each.

border-wall(10) Ryan’s Omnibus Fails to Allocate Funds to Complete the 700-Mile Double-Layer Border Fence That Congress Promised the American People

Nearly a decade ago with the passage of the 2006 Secure Fence Act, the American people were promised a 700-mile double-layer border fence. However, funding for the fence was later gutted and, as a result, its construction was never completed. Despite heightened media focus over the past six months about Americans’ desire for this barrier to illegal entry, Ryan’s bill does not require that funds be allocated to finish the construction of the 700-mile double-layer fence.

A vote could occur as early as Thursday after midnight, giving lawmakers and the public only one full business day to review the 2,242 page package.

The Ryan-Pelosi package represents nothing short of a complete and total betrayal of the American people.

ObamaWreckingBall2Yet Ryan’s omnibus serves a second and equally chilling purpose. By locking in the President’s refugee, immigration, and spending priorities, Ryan’s bill is designed to keep these fights out of Congress by getting them off the table for good. Delivering Obama these wins–and pushing these issues beyond the purview of Congress–will suppress public attention to the issues and, in so doing, will boost the candidacy of the Republican establishment’s preferred presidential contenders, who favor President Obama’s immigration agenda.

What may prove most discouraging of all to Americans is that recent reports reveal that conservatives in the so-called House Freedom Caucus are praising Ryan even as he permanently locks in these irreversible and anti-American immigration policies. According to Politico, the House Freedom Caucus will “give Ryan a pass” even as he funds disastrous policies that prioritize the interests of foreign nationals and global corporatists above the needs of the American people whom lawmakers are supposed to represent.

Dr. Ben Carson Condemns Pro-Life, Pro-Lifers Return the Favor

Austin Ruse

Pro-Life leaders are furious with presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson for his comments yesterday that pro-life rhetoric is partially responsible for the shootings that took place in Colorado last week.

On CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday morning, Carson said, “Hateful rhetoric exacerbates the situation…You don’t ever solve them [problems] with hateful rhetoric. Both sides should tone down the rhetoric and engage in civil discussion.”

Carson’s Moral Relativism

ben-carsonOn ABC’s This Week Carson said, “There’s a lot of extremism coming from all areas. We get into our separate corners and we hate each other, we want to destroy those with whom we disagree.”

In exclusive interviews with Breitbart News, a number of national pro-life leaders condemned Carson’s statements.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and a board member at the Center for Medical Progress, said, “Doctor Carson just ended his presidential candidacy.”

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of American, that has 700 chapters on college campuses around the country, says:

Did Carson take his talking points from Planned Parenthood? He completely missed the mark, casting suspicion on pro-lifers who had nothing to do with this tragedy and only furthering the deceitful narrative that the abortion industry has already laid out in the media. Compassion and love, not violence, are at the heart of the pro-life movement and motivate us to protect life in its stages and we extend that same love and compassion to the victims and their families of this horrible tragedy.

abortion3-pro-lifeWe can never tone down calling the killing of innocent children what it is. Abortion is nothing short of an act of homicide and until we can bring it to an end pro-lifers must not tone done anything but actually stand stronger than ever before.

We must stand against any act of violence including gun violence, terrorism violence, domestic violence or abortion violence. Killing any innocent person is an act of violence including those in the womb and for that reason we must speak louder and louder until that violence is ended.

Moral Relativism vs.  Right and Wrong

The fact that one person may have committed a horrific act of violence at an abortion mill does not change the fact that the abortion mill commits equally horrific acts of violence everyday and we will speak out against those acts also.

Ryan Bomberger, founder of the Radiance Foundation, says:

PC-TruthPro-abortion activists consider any scientifically, historically, or statistically accurate information about the violence of abortion to be ‘hateful rhetoric’. Facts are not hate speech, Dr. Carson. Exposing the inner-workings of Planned Parenthood in an undercover investigation isn’t ‘hateful rhetoric’; it enables illuminating and civil discussion about inhumane barbarity.

This is not the first time that Carson has said something that has angered the pro-life community. Just last month he said the fight to save the live of Terry Schiavo was “much ado about nothing.” Schiavo was the Florida woman who was allowed to starve to death because she was considered to be in a persistent vegetative state. Her case was a rallying point for the national pro-life movement.

Given that Carson is relying on evangelical support, his recent comments can only work against him in the crucial upcoming vote in the Iowa caucuses.

Values Voter Summit with Ted Cruz; John Boehner Resigns

Cruz: Beware Boehner’s shady deals with Obama

‘Not behavior one would expect of Republican speaker’

 

Sen. Ted Cruz, who’s hovering in the middle of the Republican pack for president in recent primary polls, sent out a mocking message about John Boehner’s announced resignation to a crowd of Values Voter Summit attendees – but then quickly wondered if a shady motive had prompted the speaker’s departure.

First, the joke.

Cruz said to the crowd: “You want to know how much each of you terrifies Washington? Yesterday, John Boehner was speaker of the House. Y’all come to town and somehow that changes. My only request is – can you come more often?”

The crowd cheered and applauded. But in a follow-up impromptu chat with reporters, Cruz’s reaction to Boehner’s resignation drew darker.

He said, the Washington Examiner reported: “I will say, the early reports are discouraging. If it is correct that the speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama administration for the rest of its tenure, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of this Iran deal — and then, presumably, to land in a cushy K Street job after joining with the Democrats to implement all of President Obama’s priorities, that is not the behavior one would expect of a Republican speaker of the House.”

Boehner’s resignation takes effect Oct. 30.

And toward Cruz’s point: CNN reported House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she hasn’t yet spoken with Boehner, but she will continue to press negotiations with him directly, in order to win full funding of Planned Parenthood.

History Lessons: Planned Parenthood and Aztec Human Sacrifice

History Lessons: Planned Parenthood and Aztec Human Sacrifice

Planned Parenthood and Aztec Human Sacrifice

For human cruelty, barbarity, savagery and utter inhumanity, the Aztecs had nothing on the modern priests of paganism who engage in human sacrifice 327,000 times a year in Planned Parenthood clinics, each one a virtual pagan temple.

If there ever was a contemporary organization birthed in the nether regions of hell itself, Planned Parenthood is it.

cortezHernan Cortez was the Spanish conquistador who conquered Mexico and claimed it for Spain in 1521. He defeated Montezuma and the Aztecs at present-day Mexico City with the help of virtually every other native tribe and nation in the region, all of whom wanted out from under Aztec tyranny.

aztecWhy were the native tribes so eager to join forces with the Spanish? Because the Aztecs practiced human sacrifice, and those tribes were the sacrificial victims.

As Cortez’s men made their way from the coast – after burning their ships – to Mexico City, they came across buildings filled from floor to ceiling with 100,000 skulls, each one a victim of Aztec cruelty. They found other structures, prisons actually, filled to bursting with victims of Aztec conquest, waiting their turn.
