We get an unusual clear glimpse in this thread by L.N.Smithee on what happened way back regarding stem cell research. Thanks to TheSarce for the ping.

On August 9, 2001, President Bush announced a compromise decision on the contentious question of whether the federal government should provide financial support for research into the curative properties of human stem cells extracted from embryos.

Bush’s compromise allowed funding for research into embryonic stem cells that had already been harvested. At the same time, he disallowed funding for procedures that would collect stem cells from frozen (but still living) embryos, since doing so would require their destruction. In the case of those already collected, he said, “The life-or-death decision has already been made.” But that life-or-death decision would not be made anew with taxpayer dollars.

President Bush announced a compromise decision on the contentious question of whether the federal government should provide financial support for research into the curative properties of human stem cells extracted from embryos.

In the six years since then billions of dollars have been spent worldwide slaughtering embryos with a zeal that only the likes of a Dr. Mengele would appreciate -- and the results of this carnage? NOTHING, not one single positive breakthrough.

Yet adult (including umbilical cord) stem cells have yielded effective treatments and even cures for over SIX DOZEN illnesses and diseases. However, this reality is conveniently ignored or, if mentioned, it is generically referred to as stem cells in an effort to create a public ignorance of the distinction between the different types.

Science itself unmasks the salient core reason for embryonic stem cell research, the satanic desire to kill innocent life. The best the death lovers can do is readjust their mask and hope nobody notices.

Since the beginning, it has been obvious that the real agenda behind embryonic stem cell research was to provide an additional wall of defense for abortion.

Few people realize that there are no prohibitions whatsoever against private companies spending as much money as they want and slaughtering as many embryos as they can put their hands on. And if they thought there was any profit potential, they would be pouring billions into researching them. However, they are spending a lot of money researching adult stem cells, this should tell people something.

Going after the coddlers of Tiller the Killer and ilk...

Thread by wagglebee.

TOPEKA, Kans., Dec. 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue is calling for radical reform of the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts amid scandals involving Board ineptitude in the handling of complaints against a doctor indicted on Federal charges of unlawfully prescribing medication that may have led to 56 overdose deaths and an abortionist charged with multiple counts of violating state laws.

Thursday, the KSBHA recommended that the medical license of Stephen Schneider be suspended since his "continuation in practice constitutes an imminent danger to the public health and safety." However that recommendation has no timetable for implementation. The Schneider complaint languished at the KSBHA since 2004. The recommendation was issued only after headlines revealed the Federal charges, spurring outrage from legislators over the KSBHA's glacial pace of operation.

Complaints against abortionist George Tiller, filed in October, 2006, have yet to see action even though Operation Rescue was notified in September that the case was scheduled to go before a "review board." Tiller was charged with 30 criminal counts related to illegal late-term abortions last December, which were dismissed without being considered on their merits. Two judges ruled there was probable cause to believe Tiller committed those crimes. In June, Tiller was charged with an additional 19 counts of illegal late-term abortions and faces a grand jury investigation slated to begin on January 8. Meanwhile, Tiller continues to operate without restriction................

What do Oklahoma, Ozzie Osborn, Oregon, and October have in common? Thread by wagglebee. Also note the thread attracted a fly or two, no surprise considering the topic.

.....................................

It's not an issue on too many Oklahomans' radars, but outside the Sooner State, there is a gradually unfolding philosophical shift where euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide are concerned.

On the larger world stage, Ozzy and Sharon Osborne, of Black Sabbath and reality TV-fame, recently brought certain European countries' more liberal approaches to end-of-life decisions to light with a visit to Switzerland.

They traveled there in October to scout out and show their support for Dignitas, a so-called "death apartment" where physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia were performed.

It's not exactly clear how they would notice, but the couple said they planned to make an appointment with the clinic if Ozzy ever came down with Alzheimer's disease.

(Their visit was cut short, incidentally, upon discovering that Dignitas had just been evicted from the building after repeated complaints by other tenants of the large number of coffins cluttering the side of the street outside).

Closer to home, Oregon is recognizing its 10-year anniversary this year as the only state in the nation in which physician-assisted suicide is legal..................

“This platform gives him a real steady base and a commanding view,” said fellow activist and eyewitness John McTernan. As Ed stood on his platform that morning, a man and woman exited a car in the parking lot and proceeded towards that door of the abortion mill. When Mr. Snell tried to counsel the woman, his words were cut short when the man became furious, jumped the fence and, in the words of Mr. McTernan, “leaped on the vehicle with Ed and catapulted him off of the vehicle and onto the ground.” Mr. Snell hit his back and head on the pavement and was knocked unconscious.

His medical report outlines the extent of his injuries: “multiple trauma, right subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding in the area between the brain and the tissues that cover the brain), compression fractures of four vertebrae (T3, T4, T5 and T10), right scapula fracture and fracture of the fourth and fifth ribs.” Before doctors were able to stop the bleeding in his head, they even feared Mr. Snell would die. When asked on the phone about the vicious attack, the receptionist at Hillcrest Abortion Clinic refused to give a recorded statement and angrily shouted: “He got what he deserved! He earned what he got!”  She then hung up the phone...................................

Javona Peters update...

As we noted earlier, it was the mom who wanted to pull the plug and the estranged father who balked, but then he wavered and now this. That bothers me a lot. Are either really that committed to fight for this poor girl's life or for proceeds from a civil action?

..............................

Javona Peters

Javona Peters

There's a new twist in the fight to control the fate of a 16-year-old lying in a permanent coma in a Bronx hospital - the girl's father now wants to be named co-guardian.

The parents of the girl, Javona Peters, have disagreed on whether to remove a feeding tube and end what's left of her life.

Janet Joseph, who is in favor of "letting Javona go in peace," previously filed papers seeking sole guardianship of her daughter.

On Friday, Javona's father, Leonard Peters, who has not made a firm decision about taking that final step, filed a cross petition asking that he be appointed co-guardian.

The petitions were originally drawn to pave the way for a malpractice suit against Montefiore Medical Center, where Javona fell into an irreversible coma on Oct. 17 after what was supposed to be a routine operation.

Lawyers for the parents - who never married and are estranged - agree the guardianship issue will be part of other expanded court proceedings over who will be Javona's guardian in all aspects, including control over her life and property.

"Because of her condition, she cannot make decisions for herself, and the court will have to appoint a guardian to make decisions for her," said one of Joseph's lawyers, Edward Gersowitz.

Leonard Peters' lawyer, Lucille Barbato, agreed but added that her client, unlike Joseph, "isn't looking to become sole guardian" but just wants "equal footing."

"He respects the mother, but he's been involved with his daughter since birth, and for him this is heart-wrenching," Barbato said.

Javona grew up with her mother and attended school in Providence, R.I. Her father, whom she visited, lives in Mount Vernon.

Meanwhile, Gersowitz and Andrew Libo, another of Joseph's lawyers, said that even if the parents agree to remove Javona's feeding tube, "it's likely" the hospital would not grant their wishes without direction from the courts............

How hollow must a person be, to be so distracted by dollar signs they can’t see their own child’s best interest. To starve and dehydrate your own child to death, for money. Don’t tell me evil doesn’t exist.

Hey, we resemble that remark!

Although, I don't see the advancing death forces as inexorable at all. We are not in a bunker defending a hopeless cause, that of God, but are standing up for what is right. Things are not always as they seem, but I am glad you are in there fighting.

Like Japanese soldiers bunkered on a remote Pacific island in 1955, planning ways to stop the Allies' advance, some of us are still fighting the Terri Schiavo wars. There was welcome news on that front when a Venezuelan man was declared dead after a car accident. He was taken to the morgue and stored. When the coroner began the autopsy, the deceased woke up. Things are not always as they seem.

Catholic Charities anyone??

Here in Maine they enriched the environment by helping fund a foothold for Somalians in burkas in the Lewiston area and a whole new crime and welfare category burgeoning for the local taxpayers to shoulder. We how have great "diversity".

Boston Globe interviews the president of that body with its interesting application of the word, "Charity." It also is an interesting application of the word, "Catholic". I wonder what she thinks of Bp. Lynch. Nawww...

.......................

A conservative blog called you "a Hillary Clinton loving, George W. Bush hating, self-described 'moderate' who describes Terri Schiavo supporters as fierce zealots." What do you make of that?

[Laughs.] Well, I'm not going to please everybody. And it's not my job to. My job is to help manifest the social mission of the Church in service to our clients. And I hope that that will please a very large swath of Catholics, because one of the things that the broad diversity of Catholics have in common is this sense of justice and human dignity and solidarity.

Bill Kristol, becoming new OpEd on the NYT makes a statement on Terri.

On Terri Schiavo: "After all, we are a 'maturing society,' as the Supreme Court has told us. Perhaps it is time, in mature reaction to this latest installment of what Hugh Hewitt has called a 'robed charade,' to rise up against our robed masters, and choose to govern ourselves. Call it Terri's revolution."

Thread by wagglebee on what sounds like good news for Colorado.

The proposed sale that would transfer two Exempla Healthcare hospitals in the Denver metropolitan area to a Catholic organization that does not allow abortion and birth-control procedures at its facilities has been endorsed by Colorado Attorney General John Suthers.

The hospitals, Lutheran and Good Samaritan, soon could fall under the management of Catholic Health Care Services, which, among other things, does not provide abortions, forms of sterilization including tubal ligation and vasectomies, and emergency contraception pills, known as the abortion pill.

Suthers concluded in his legal opinion that the transfer wouldn't violate state laws concerning nonprofit groups, and that the incoming owner, Sisters of Charity Leavenworth Health System, of Lenexa, Kan., had the authority to change procedures at the hospitals, according to a Denver Post report..........

Jovana Peters, this time something we can do...

Thanks to LesforLife for the tip.

Father wavers on dehydrating daughter to death

Here's a disturbing story, one that is still in play and where those of you Christians out there might perhaps still make a difference by prayer.

16-year-old Javona Peters suffered severe brain damage when she had an allergic reaction to the anesthetic during what should have been relatively minor surgery. Though this all happened only two months ago, doctors are saying she is in a "persistent vegetative state." Her mother wants to remove her feeding tube (which the story calls "pulling the plug"--a highly misleading phrase) so that she will dehydrate to death and the mother can get on with suing the hospital. (The story also uses the demeaning phrase "ending what is left of her life.")

Until a few days ago, her father was adamantly opposed to any such thing, saying, admirably, "I don't give life and I cannot take a life." Her parents are estranged, and her father has custody. A court hearing is scheduled for January 7. I gather that this is a custody hearing; the mother hopes to get custody so she can authorize Javona's death by dehydration.

But now the doctors are saying they can do no more for her and that she should be moved to a permanent nursing facility. Someone has been pressuring Dad, and he is becoming confused, despite his original clear-sightedness. Now he says that he "doesn't see the point now" if "nothing is working." Of course, if the feeding tube weren't "working," she would already be dead. Food and water do not cure; they provide nutrition and hydration so you don't die. It's that simple. "The point" of feeding the child was and is the point of feeding any child. And since when is the point of feeding your child the hope of increasing her brain-power and other abilities? But Javona's father says he needs to talk to his lawyer.

Not that I'm inclined to be too harsh on him. How many people are working their hardest to mess with his head on this one? They are no doubt using all the euphemisms--"letting her go," and all the rest--and implying to him that he is cruel, irresponsible, and just plain wrong, wrong, wrong for keeping her fed. It is entirely possible that those who have pushed and bullied him on this one will face a harsher judgement than he does, in the long run. (Wesley Smith has reported before on the bullying of family members who want to retain nutrition and hydration for their loved ones, so I consider it very plausible Mr. Peters has experienced this.)

Wesley J. Smith has reported on this story, and he emphasizes the hastiness of the PVS diagnosis. Medically speaking, he is quite right. But I want to point out what I'm sure WJS would agree with--that it really should not and does not matter. Even if you were certain that your child would remain permanently unable to "move, think, or eat on her own" (as the reporter so dramatically puts it), that would not justify removing her water for ten days to two weeks so that she would dry up and die.

So let us pray for Javona and her dad.

Life News lists Terri Day as a top story of the year...

.............................

4. Terri Schindler Schiavo Day Created, Assisted Suicide Bills Die

Despite the international attention surrounding the life and death of Terri Schiavo, issues like assisted suicide and euthanasia continue remain still don't receive as much attention from the pro-life community as they deserve.

The Schindler family is helping to combat that problem by establishing the "International Day of Prayer and Remembrance for Terri Schindler Schiavo." Terri Schiavo's day will be another reminder of how the culture of death that abortion started has extended to the elderly and disabled.

As the Schindler continue their yeoman's work for the disadvantaged, pro-life advocates were successful in stopping assisted suicide in California, Hawaii, and Vermont. They hoped to join Oregon, where assisted suicides are at an all time high.

Sadly, Jack Kevorkian was released form prison after serving just eight years of a 10 to 25 year prison sentence he received for killing a patient.

Sounds like a Florida lib has a wicked hangover...

"Abandon all hope," ye who've entered Florida! All the good cheer of the holiday season is over. The once-a-year bursts of philanthropy, the love you protested and the kisses you blew, the gifts you exchanged, even your pledges of turning over a new leaf ain't gonna amount to a ball a wax. Whether you just weathered New Year's cold sober or tied one on, 2008's gonna be a nonstop hangover.

Human beings in general and Floridians in particular are notoriously mean-spirited, narrow-minded, greedy and selfish: Give us the prospect of a new year and a pristine start, and we'll always disappoint. After a few blessed holiday weeks of time-out for good behavior, Florida 2008 is gonna be infernal: about morality, money, malarkey — and misery. It's "déjà vu all over again"!

Predictably following their basest instincts, Florida's self-righteous Radical Right promises to spend 2008 badly, dangling social red meat to energize ultra-conservatives. The same bunch that gave us the Terri Schiavo mess will be crusading to get its constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage passed in November.

The new year will be filled with mayhem

Who's fighting who? At this point, the radical left cannot seem to forget sweet Terri. What's up with that? I guess she's going to represent the conservatives even though there were many liberals and democrats who were for Terri fighting alongside of us.

I'd say, the MSM has an identity crisis. They cannot identify who was with Terri. It wasn't some radical right coalition.

Terri's Fight rose up from here www.terrisfight.org, from Glenn Beck and other radio hosts and Freepers jumped on board. It was NOT radical right although we got the word out and then democrats joined Terri's Fight.

That's how it went... MSM, get a clue!

The McCain Scrutiny

.................................

...........McCain thanked the audience “for your commitment to Judeo-Christian values upon which this nation was founded.” He said: “I am a conservative. My record shows I am a conservative.” On abortion, he said “the rights of the unborn should be respected.” Judges, he said, “should not legislate from the bench.”

But such speeches, even those as well attended as this one, are not what is most important in winning the support of alliance members who will attend the caucuses Thursday night. What probably matters more is the “2008 Iowa Christian Alliance Presidential Caucus Voters Guide,” which was distributed in churches around the state. It gives the candidates’ stands on 10 issues, based on their response to questionnaires.

Most of McCain’s answers would win him admission to any right-wing club in the nation.

He supports repeal of Roe v. Wade, opposes ratification of the Kyoto treaty as well as extension of federal hate crime laws to include sexual orientation. He is even against a proposal that exists so far only in the minds of paranoid ultraconservatives—a “NAFTA superhighway” running from Canada to Mexico.

But on one issue of particular importance in the world of the religious right, McCain split with the Iowa Christian Alliance: gay marriage.  In Iowa, a county judge overturned an Iowa law banning same-sex marriages, although he later suspended his ruling pending an appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court.  This prompted a statement by alliance President Scheffler and Morris Hurd, calling for a U.S. constitutional amendment banning such unions: “… Again we see that the judges view themselves as arrogant aristocrats who know so much more than the rest of us. ... In recent years, Biblical standards are almost completely abandoned and ignored............”

God and John McCain

Support for Killary dead ahead, in a thread by wagglebee...

Des Moines, IA (LifeNews.com) -- By the time the janitors sweep the floors after Iowa Democrats conclude their party caucus meetings on Thursday night, a leading pro-abortion group will likely have spent half a million dollars promoting Hillary Clinton. That makes it one of the top handful of groups spending money backing candidates there.

Emily's List, which only backs pro-abortion Democratic women who support partial-birth abortions and making taxpayers fund abortions, has been in the New York senator's corner from the beginning.

Jebediah is now “Board Member”. That’s perfect for someone who just sits around, like a buddha statue. He sure sat on his behind when Terri needed him most. Jeb buddha bush.

Entire Page of Terri Quotations. (her icon button was next to Saddam Hussein and Al Quaeda.) Curious, isn't it?

I think we are it, rattling cages. About the time I picked it up, upthread, Wesley J. Smith, the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, and Steve Ertelt grabbed it, and now we have the new Terri Dailies with wagglebee. I hope we get enough attention to save the pook kid.

Many DUers are against the death cult. I’ll put them in keywords. They can help too.

It’s 39 degrees here with sunshine. It almost snowed somewhere in Fla last night. They say tonight will be even colder. So much for Algore’s global warming. Strawberries are at risk.

He won’t. Freepers got him re-elected. He lost a bunch of us over Terri.

Just wondering if any of you saw L & Order yesterday where it dealt with assisted suicide? I missed it and hope it was not pro assisted suicide or giving a pass to the perp that subtly would imply it is not big deal.

We had crime in our area yesterday. I was looking at real squad cars instead of watching tv. Florida is not such a good state any more. Governor crist doesn’t seem aware that there’s a crime wave and in addition, people are being taxed and insured to death.

A shame Crist became governor. I keep reading about the weird things happening in Florida. I have relatives and friends there and they are concerned.

I warned people about the krister. He fired many of Jeb's people and replaced them democrats or with Terri killer-voters from the legislature. If Marco Rubio challenges him for re-election, Rubio will beat his behind.

Rubio is a conservative. the krister is an aloof, playboy, jet setter when we need someone "grounded". When he talks about when he was a quarterback, it's so fraudulent. The only reason he was quarterback was because his dad was on the school board and daddy demanded that krister be the quarterback. The real quarterback got demoted, went to a rival school Dixie Hollins or Northeast High and beat the pants off of St. Pete High.

His quarterback stories do not impress or amuse me. You can see by his sinewy build that he's no quarterback. He's no conservative either. But he's GREEN, he and Ahnold. How much is that green gonna cost us since he's made some kind of deal with the power companies and told clean coal to take a hike?

Total loser and so are the people of Florida. I'm proud I didn't vote for him.
