Headscarf and other headdress ban in all government schools and offices and drivers license photos would make a lot of sense and go a long way towards liberating the iron fisted control that the crazed mullahs have over muslim women. This is not a minor issue IMO.

"This means that *anyone*, especially people like you, who favors bringing Roe v Wade challenges now, before we've changed the personnel on the Supreme Court, is actually someone who is pursuing a path that will HARM ALL PRO-LIFE EFFORTS."

Well stated and agreed.

There are some threads I find interesting and return to do a more thorough review. This thread was one of them. "Anti-choicers want all these babies born, but they don’t want to adopt them, help the mothers, do social work or pay higher taxes."

This argument was used ad nauseum even when I was in college in the late 70's early 80's. Our college group, and as well the local community pro-life organization at the time, did all we could to dispel that lie.

Your list is excellent. Please add me to your ping list.

You idea of liberation is Orwellian.

Many women and MEN want to wear their religion headdress and you are acting like a true Communist by wanting to ban it. I am no fan of the Islamic religion but people have the right to choose to express their religion. I can redirect you to Michael Newdow and his religion hating friend if you like?

I know countless very religious people including ministers, and NONE of them wear head wrappings. These head getups are not religous, they are political symbols of power and control. I am sure the Almighty could care less about such nonsense.

Both Bush's wife and mother are pro choice, they probably realize that criminalizing the whole thing would never work.

"Both Bush's wife and mother are pro choice"

Interesting. Seems the President has not been too successful in 'changing hearts and minds'. However, he has been quite successful to persuade whenever he really wants something. Have pro-lifers been bamboozled, stay tuned.

"And FWIW--I posted a list similar to Mr. Silverback's from another source and other articles praising the Bush administration on Pro-Life on more than one ocassion, so I am in no way against the man, I just want to challenge him to do more."

There's nothing wrong with the above, cp. The title of this article, however, takes it too far, and I do think mischaracterizes the Presidents position.

Yeah I saw that post. I printed to look over it in more depth. Have you read it? It looks impressive until one begins to get a felling of deja vu all over again. Most items are listed 2, 3 even 4 times. The same thing under a different heading. And others are just plain laughable regardless which side you sit on. I mean really "floated the possibility of nominating" so and so.

There are a few good things but it reads like a scare tactic by Planned Parenthood designed to drum up donations. Like the Anti-defemation league did when "The Passion of Christ" came out last year. "Oh no the Bogey man is gonna get cha" The items that have any teeth are lost in the undergrowth.

The sad thing is I was glad to see the list and printed it out hoping it would make me feel better about the GOP. It didn't do a whole lot. And I see on my pings another headline that takes that little bit away. I fear they have been lying to us for 35 years.

Hmmmm...my point was not the number of items, but the content. A few good things? Huh?

A pro-lifer in charge of the nation's health.

No US tax dollars for foreign abortions, or the promotion of abortion.

None of your tax dollars pay for federal employees' birth control.

A promoter of abstinence becomes the chief advisor on AIDS.

Taking a teen to get an out of state abortion is now a federal crime.

Thompson fights the condom approach to AIDS prevention.

Partial Birth Abortion Ban.

Pro-lifer at refugee post.

UNFPA gets no US money for three years.

Embryo adoption promoted.

CEDAW is rejected.

Another pro-life/pro-abstinence AIDS advisor.

Hospitals will not be forced to give abortions.

WHO pro-abortion program gets no US tax dollars.

Pro-condom myths and pro-abortion breast cancer lies go off
the HHS website.

Embryo is considered a human by US government scientitsts.

Title X overseen by abstinence-promoter.

US ditches support for pro-abortion treaty.

Multiple pro-lifers (and specifically, anti-RU486) appointed to FDA.

No more abortions at our military facilities.

Cairo pro-abortion language is not endorsed by US.

And that's just in the Family Planning section.

Certainly, only a pro-abort would allow such things on his watch, right? Get a grip.

   NEWS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:                February 08, 2005

Bush Signs Title X Funding Increase for 2005

Planned Parenthood's Abortion Funding Increased


President George W. Bush and the Republican-majority Congress
Increased Title X to record $288.3 million in FY 2005 on 12/8/04


Title X is one of two major federal government funding sources for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the nation's largest chain of abortion centers (murdering over 244,000 unborn human beings per year by surgical abortion alone).


Title X appropriation for FY 2005 (Oct. 2004 to Sept. 2005) was signed into law as part of H.R. 4818 (see bill at http://thomas.loc.gov), the mammoth appropriations bill which contained the huge outlays for the (unconstitutional) Department of Health and Human Services.


Republican-majority U.S. House approved H.R. 4818 by a vote of 344 to 51, on November 20, 2004 (Roll Call Number: 542). [Republicans 183 Yea, 27 Nay; Democrats 160 Yea, 24 Nay; 1 Independent Yea]


Republican-majority U.S. Senate approved H.R. 4818 by a vote of 65 to 30, on November 20, 2004 (Record Vote Number: 215) [Republicans 42 Yea, 6 Nay; Democrats 23 Yea, 23 Nay; 1 Independent Nay]


Republican President signed H.R. 4818 into law, authorizing the highest ever spending level for Title X in the history of the program, on December 8, 2004. It became Public Law No. 108-447.

This FY 2005 Bush administration Title X funding level of $288 million (an estimated $50-$60 million of which will be paid to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, for population control), exceeds by over $30 million, the highest Title X level during the Clinton administration, in FY 2001, of $254 million!

______________________________________________

Note:

    The Title X program includes funding for contraceptive birth control; birth control that causes chemical abortions; and birth control for unmarried adolescents, even if their parents object to the federal government giving their children hormonal drugs and devices with which to fornicate.

    The Title X program is also one of the principal federal government funding mechanisms for Planned Parenthood Federation of America (founded by Margaret Sanger), the nation's largest chain of child-murder-by-abortion centers.

Since his party is in control of both houses of Congress there is virtually no chance that he would have been impeached let alone removed for such a brave and just act as this

Do you seriously believe there are 34 pro-life Senators who would vote "nay" on Articles of Impeachment?

I don't think there are 15.

The would not impeach if only for party loyalty and to stop the dems from rebounding.

And yes there may be less than 15 real Pro-Life senators.

I say that the Culture of Death still repels most Americans, but that the assumptions which give rise to the Culture of Death are overwhelmingly popular.

What's a poor politician to do?

Use the line item veto for starters. He would be a hero to the values voters who elected him and save lives in the process.

He won't even do that.

Removing $288.3 million in FY 2005 from Planned Parenthood would save MANY MANY lives and he could redirect it to abstinence education which would save even more lives.

But he's been funding PP and will continue, hence the title of my thread.

I gotta give you credit, at least you are honest. Usually your kind blabbers on and on about how it's not really a baby, just a fetus, a blob of tissue mass. But not you. No, you came right out and admitted that you support abortion out of pure selfishness.

Happy Easter!
