We have recently seen more political attacks on judges at the federal level, by Administration officials and by some of the Congressional leadership. The Terri Schiavo case comes to mind. This can threaten judicial independence, and clearly can have a chilling effect.
Good friend, Jill Stanek, has graciously posted
several of my photos from our fight for Terri
Schindler Schiavo - Holy Week 05 - on her
excellent site today!
If you believe Terri had dignity and infinite worth as a disabled
woman, tho Florida courts sanctioned her starvation/dehydration
murder, please go post a pro-life comment to counter the numerous
athiests on the site today demonstrating Psalm 14:1:
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are
corrupt; they have done abominable works, there is none that

March 31, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - I am writing as the great great grandson of William Wilberforce, who campaigned vigorously for the ending of the transatlantic slave trade in 1807, which ultimately paved the way for the abolition of slavery itself throughout the entire British Empire in 1833.
I am often asked what would be the campaigns Wilberforce would be fighting if he were alive in 21st century Britain. I believe that there would be a number of different issues among them human trafficking and the scourge of drugs. But almost certainly at the top of the list, would be the issue of abortion.
As the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill comes before Parliament over the next few weeks, the opportunity presents itself to amend the abortion Act. With the number of abortions having reached 200,000 per year in the UK alone, the time is right to tighten up the law that was designed to protect women by ending illegal abortion, but never to allow such a high degree of deprived life...........
