Hopefully in Lauren’s case “silence is golden,” we would certainly have heard if the judge had ordered her death.

Yes, "sinister" means evil and comes from the Latin, left. Ergo, leftist thought is by definition evil. Figures. It fits in this thread by wagglebee on how the leftists view prenatal testing.

Prenatal testing, originally designed as a precautionary measure to identify potential problems in the early stages of pregnancy, allowed for corrective measures to be taken to ensure a healthier pregnancy and child. With the legalization of abortion in the United States in 1973, the testing took on a more sinister purpose.

Some of these prenatal tests were used to also encourage abortion. The pro-life community called these "search-and-destroy" tests. Specifically, the prenatal test is used to diagnose an unborn child's potential malady and allow the mother the option to abort that child.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecology (ACOG) has led the medical community in the advocacy of abortion. For that reason, it did not come as a surprise to find ACOG's wholehearted endorsement of "search-and-destroy" testing............

I hope so too for Lauren's sake. In the case of poor Sam Golubchuk, it was not. And in the case of Haleigh Poutre, every time something happens, The Republican of Massachusetts is right on top of it, so nothing slips through.

If Sam’s case doesn’t demonstrate the inherent flaw in socialized medicine, nothing will.

It sure unmasks the grim determination of the death forces to secure this kill. Were it simply a difference of opinion or perspective as the media would have us believe, they would shrug, "OK" and wait for the courts to settle it. But oh no, they want their kill and will not be denied.

Remember three years ago how desperate the killing crew was to ensure Terri had no chance at all. They even posted police to guard the process, to ensure not a drop of moisture touch her lips. Killing and blood lust meant that much to them. Socialism encourages the killers.

Socialism encourages the killers.

And NOBODY should be surprised.

Not counting actual combat deaths in wars fought to fight socialism, socialism is directly responsible for WELL OVER ONE BILLION DEATHS in the last century (this includes abortion). To help put that in perspective, the population of the world in 1900 was about 1.65 billion.

Lauren Richardson...

Thanks, Les, for the tip and for the uplift. To get a sense what is happening, click on the link to the testimonial page for Lauren.

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

FEELING BLUE?

Need a boost to get your day going and heart focused
on Him?

I've been thinking and praying today about Lauren Richardson.
For the first time I found my way to the testimonial page on her web site.

Let your heart be blessed by the love, dedication and hope in these individual's stories of their disabled loved ones.

Take a moment to Praise the Lord for dear souls like these, who love in spite of the obstacles and persevere when the system tells them to give up.

These are the kinds of hearts that established America's hospitals, before they became money driven.

Lord, we pray for an outpouring of your love and healing upon Lauren and her family this day.




Touch the heart of the judge in this matter, that he will recognize the value of this beautiful young mom. Let Lauren understand the love and concern pouring forth on her behalf. Bring goodness where some mean for evil to prevail.

LORD, WE LOVE YOU AND PRAISE YOU for every day that you give us to proclaim your mighty name.

FEELING BLUE?

On this day in history three years ago, Terri was the most significant headline of the day. On that day of shame for our country, the forces sanctioned by the State took the first step in the agonizing process pacing the Passion of Easter. Terri shrieked in horror as she understood they were proceeding to kill her. In retrospect the event was surreal, almost beyond belief for any who understood what was really happening. A good percentage of the population happily accepted media lies that it was a good thing to murder innocent Terri. Today is Tuesday in Holy Week for Christians, Catholics.

In 2005, doctors removed the feeding tube keeping Terri Schiavo alive after a wide-ranging fight over the brain-damaged Florida woman's care that involved U.S. President Bush and Congress.

A lucid view on Eleanor Clift's book in a thread by NotChosenName, on the book we panned earlier...

Thanks LilAngel, for the ping. Visitors to that thread and to threads like it in these days, be wary. The topic brings out detractors.

In a recent interview in the Sunday "NYTimes" magazine, Eleanor Clift, says, re: Terri Schiavo, that her parents and supporters "did not want to accept that she could not be rehabilitated. They found enough people to fool them into thinking she could." This, of course, is completely wrong! Forget "rehabilitation." What Terri's parents and her supporters tried to stop was the MURDER of Terri Schiavo. Alas, they failed -- with no help from people like Eleanor Clift.

It should surprise nobody that the greatest detractors, hoping to sow mass confusion over the issue count on the book by Eleanor Clift to help with their task, offering her experience as if it were a pleasant contrast to the horrors visited upon Terri. Perhaps the poor dumb masses can be sold more of this baloney...

In these days the leftists will try anything that can dull the impact of Terri's Legacy. In the Puffington Host, today, one of that type actually tries to equate the event with the Hussain BO/wrong Wright controversy. Figures.

There's nothing in Senator Obama's past, in his voting record or his writing or his rhetoric, to indicate that he shares Jeremiah Wright's rage against the system. He has, in fact, made it clear he renounces this volatile part of his pastor's message. The way Obama has chosen to live his life would indicate he's telling the truth. Many of us, if we're honest, renounce at least some of what our own pastors preach at us. I'm neither evangelical nor fundamentalist; I'm a mainstream protestant. Contrary to form, my pastor believes all abortion is a mortal sin, a crime. He believes stem cell research is an abomination and that Terri Schiavo was murdered. We disagree, totally, vocally and openly, about these issues. But I can still love this man because the core of his ministry and his hands-on pastoral energy are spent addressing the issues of poverty and homelessness both here and abroad. I do not leave my church family when the broader message is one in which I believe....

Shopping at the Grim Reaper- Marché aux Puces market, in a thread by wagglebee...

DIJON, France, March 17, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A mother of three who lives in the Bourgogne region of Eastern France has had her plea to be euthanized by her doctor rejected by a court in Dijon. The court ruled that French law does not permit a doctor to prescribe lethal drugs to patients.

The case of the 53-year-old woman, Chantal Sebire, has garnered widespread sympathy in France, especially since she appeared on national television and made an appeal to French President Nicholas Sarkozy to intervene on her behalf and accede to her request to be killed. The French President responded by saying that he would convene a panel of specialists to explore possibilities for the treatment of Sebire's condition, an offer that she refused....

In a letter sent to ABOG Executive Director Dr. Norman Grant today asking for clarification, Secretary Leavitt notes, "It appears that the interaction of the [ABOG Bulletin for 2008 Maintenance of Certification] with the ACOG ethics report would force physicians to violate their conscience by referring patients for abortions or taking other objectionable actions, or risk losing their board certification."............

That it ever got that far and that public opinion was divided still boggles my mind.

We live in a nation where from time to time there is a tragedy like a mining accident where people are trapped and nobody hesitates to do whatever is necessary to rescue them, no expense is spared and the possibility that they are already dead isn't even a consideration.

Contrast that with Terri. She was HEALTHY, she had a record of responding to rehabilitation and the taxpayers weren't being asked for a dime.

As we have shown in threads past, in the year following the initial trauma, itself still carried as a cold case file, she showed remarkable improvement. Pictures we posted showed a Terri sitting up, looking good, alert and recovering from multiple broken bones. Once hubby cashed his winnings from a strange malpractice suit, it all changed, and took another decade and half with the help of like minded to finally kill her. Tough for detractors, she was strong and survived the attempts.

Despite the clouds of lies and half-truths of obfuscation, truth is durable, and will prevail. It was one ugly crime visited upon innocent Terri. It is why we continue with the White Rose.

LET US NOT FORGET THAT EVIL REPUBLICANS UNITED WITH THE A.C.L.U. TO MURDER TERRI. I am now an independent. I will not be used by any political party who rides roughshod over innocent Americans.

If McCain loses, the GOP should realign with the republicans who jumped ship. They need to have a genuine pro-life platform and STICK TO IT. It is never just to kill innocent people for political expediency and for political favors. Money and power killed Terri. So did Governor Charlie Crist (former FL AG).

If McCain loses, the GOP should realign with the republicans who jumped ship. They need to have a genuine pro-life platform and STICK TO IT.

The Whig Party was a dominant force in the first half of the 19th Century, in addition to electing a few presidents, their members included such giants as Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. Then, in the mid-1850s they collapsed over slavery. From this collapse rose the Republican Party which within a decade succeeded in ending slavery and changing the course of American history forever.

While people should ALWAYS be given the right to live, political parties which have completely abandoned their principles DO NOT. A NEW Conservative Party which has to suffer in the wilderness for several years will emerge hungry enough to adhere to conservatism for at least the balance of our lives.

Truth is a durable thing. One cannot change the core, and can only try to hide it. Lies can be changed as needed.

But they can change what people BELIEVE is the truth. The average American will tell you that we "lost" the war in Vietnam, though they cannot cite a single battle that was won by North Vietnam or the Viet Cong (Cronkite seems to think we "lost" the Tet Offensive, but he also failed to report that General Giap was ready to end the war at this point until he saw how the American left was spinning it).

To show how lies can affect, Peter Arnett at the time of Tet got huge mileage out of a supposed statement by one of our meanie soldiers. "We had to destroy the village to save it."

Never happened. I did some research a few years ago and found it was actually a statement by an Army Captain in France in WWII. The lie did the trick. But we didn't have the internet do debunk that slimebag as we do now. Yes we won and the traitors told the public we lost. Doesn't work so good any more.

Sam Golubchuk...

On this Holy Week anniversary of Terri's agony, we remind of Sam Golubchuk, in Canada, as teams do their best to assure he dies under their timetable. Now we get the bone-chilling weigh-in of none other than Peter Singer, present tense of Margaret Sanger. He is the consummate death dealer, the ultimate word as the voice of those who live for death and hate all human forms of live except their own. It is like the Grim Reaper arriving at bedside with a team of cheerleaders.

(I wonder if he lurks on our threads as a troll. Sounds like it.)

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

Pneumonia used to be called “the old man’s friend” because it often brought a fairly swift and painless end to a life that was already of poor quality, and would otherwise have continued to decline. Now a study of severely demented patients in Boston area nursing homes shows that the “friend” is often being fought with antibiotics. Such practices raise the obvious question: are we routinely treating illnesses because we can, rather than because we ought to?

~Snip~

Pneumonia also has not been able to play its friendly role for 84-year-old Samuel Golubchuk of Winnipeg, Canada, who for years has had limited physical and mental capacities as a result of a brain injury. Golubchuk’s doctors thought it best not to prolong his life, but his children, arguing that discontinuing life-support would violate their Orthodox Jewish beliefs, obtained a court order compelling the doctors to keep their father alive....

Sam Golubchuk...

Thanks, Les, for the tips. We can ask ourselves, why does the death squad call out the elite assault team, why the drive to kill this hapless man? Thread by wagglebee on details of Mr. Golubchuk's status replete with links.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, March 18, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Samuel Golubchuk's children are continuing the fight to keep their father alive against the efforts of hospital doctors who are determined to starve and dehydrate him to death, regardless of the family's wishes.

In February, Justice Perry Schulman of the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench granted a temporary injunction allowing Mr. Golubchuk to remain on life support until a trial could rule on the issue. The judge, in granting the injunction, said that there were sufficient grounds to doubt the hospital's analysis of the patient's condition.

On Friday March 14th, lawyers for the Golubchuk family and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority were in court to try to establish a trial date.

Neil Kravetsky, lawyer for the Golubchuk family, said the case will not be heard until the end of the year at the earliest.....

Conservativism is dead...Lotke

God is dead...Nietze

Nietze is dead...God

In this effort, Lotke hopes to cross-dress definitions of conservative into something the liberal eye can comprehend, and then pound it asunder hoping to damage Terri's Legacy at the same time. From the OpEd MoPed...

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

The moral values crusade has turned morality into a burlesque. Conservative leaders are obsessed with abortion, gay marriage and stem-cell research—issues that divide and confuse. They don’t care enough about the morals we learned in kindergarten. Share. Wait your turn. Treat others as you want to be treated yourself.

And conservatism entirely misses the big picture. It doesn't see the greed and materialism tearing us apart. It doesn't see poverty and economic injustice, or refugees fleeing genocide. It doesn't care for the green Earth that earlier generations protected in national parks.

Terri Schiavo. Conservatives put her family through hell before honoring her husband’s request to remove life support. Blinded by faith, conservatives cast aside honored principles of small government and states’ rights.

Choice. Conservatives seek to deny women the right to decide whether to have a child on her own. They don’t seem to care about the women’s own decision, the risk to her health or the child’s well-being after birth. And they insist on teaching only abstinence during sex education in schools, though a mixed curriculum shows better results. Abortion-obsessed conservatives even force their morals onto foreign policy by denying U.S. government aid to organizations in countries that allow abortion in addition to contraception, family planning or other health programs.......

News Busters is on to Eleanor...

I wonder why the timing of this book touted to overshadow Terri's Legacy at this time, and then I look back three years, about now. Three years ago, the media had no shards of truth on its side and they flailed fecklessly in the breeze searching for something, any thing, to justify a report on their side. They came up with an underwhelming offering, embarrassing. They actually hired a circus juggler to mix in with the Terri supporters, to start his act. Perhaps it would make our support like a circus. It failed and people moved away from the poor guy so his act was by itself, a testament to the lame left lust. The juggler was probably a nice guy simply paid for his role, like some of the detractors we met. Similarly, I see Eleanor, with real grief, used like a dishrag to wave at the world as a banner for death.

"I think that Barack Obama represents a post-racial candidacy," Clift said. "But not a lot Americans feel that. I think the sentiments expressed in that church are not all that unusual in this country and I think Barack Obama is asking us to judge him on how he's lived his life and what he believes."

Clift, also a Fox News contributor and a contributing editor for Newsweek, was promoting her book "Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Politics". Her book examined the Terry Schiavo affair and she compared it with her own personal tragedy of losing her husband, Tom Brazaitis, to cancer in 2005....

Yes, McCain admitted he knows not much about economics and he made again a fool of himself - this time in Iraq - revealing he also knows not much about Iran and his buddy Lieberman had to correct him.

Three years ago today, from the archives of the L.A. Times...

Over the course of a nerve-racking day, the leaders of two congressional committees summoned Schiavo, who doctors say is in a persistent vegetative state, to appear before lawmakers, an extraordinary attempt to stall the cutting-off of her food supply. A House lawyer flew to Florida to intervene in her case, only to be dismissed by a county judge who refused to retreat from his order to end Schiavo's life. Invective mounted, with Democrats denouncing the legal moves and religious leaders fuming at the judge.

A House panel issued subpoenas to Schiavo, her husband and medical personnel. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) said they and other GOP leaders would work over the weekend to smooth out conflicts between the Senate and House bills that would allow federal courts to intervene in the Schiavo case....

Schiavo Taken Off Food Supply; Congress tries to stop the process with subpoenas, but a judge presses ahead with his order. In Florida and the capital, the rhetoric heats up.

More from that day...

Note in the second link, the many other stories of three years ago.

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

NEW YORK — Ten years ago, Christian Dwyer was in a car accident and doctors predicted he would spend the rest of his life in a persistent vegetative state — the same condition some doctors believe Terri Schiavo to be in.

Today, Dwyer is alive and well. Although confined to a wheelchair and afflicted with some permanent physical damage, he speaks clearly about his experience and his opposition to what is happening to Schiavo.

Doctors say that Schiavo (), the 41-year-old woman who’s feeding tube was removed Friday, is in a persistent vegetative state, from which no one has ever recovered.

Others, such as Terri’s parents and a group of 30 doctors and nurses who have signed affidavits testifying as much, say she is not in such a state, and that there is a chance for recovery.

Dwyer has good reason to think Schiavo has a chance.

After five weeks in a “life-and-death situation” and three months in a coma, his doctors predicted that if he did survive, it would be as a vegetable.....

What a creepy duo - McCain and Crist. I would not be surprised if McCain imploded before the Nov. elections. I watched him on TV and he appeared drained of energy, ill, and/or medicated.

Oregon, my alma mater, where have you gone??

Thread by wagglebee on the killing fields on the Willamette.

Salem OR (LifeNews.com) -- Oregon officials have released their tenth statewide report on the status of assisted suicide there and it found the number of people who died is on the rise. The report also showed the number of people getting drugs to use in taking their own lives is increasing as well.

More people received lethal drugs from doctors to kill themselves than any previous year under the state's first-in-the-nation law legalizing assisted suicide....

Of course what these "physicians" find most abhorrent is the FACT that many people do recover from conditions far worse than Terri's.

Terri Schiavo. Conservatives put her family through hell before honoring her husband’s request to remove life support. Blinded by faith, conservatives cast aside honored principles of small government and states’ rights.

So that's the new talking point? I suppose the Schindlers were all supportive of Mikey's desire to murder Terri until pro-life conservatives came along and brain washed them.

Concepts to liberals are like fantasies to the rest of us, like dreams we all have, where anything can happen. They live their sad lives thinking their dreams are reality.
