Bless Paulette’s family. Good memories of Paulette will eventually replace their sorrow. Maybe that sounds corny but that’s how I feel about it.

Eduardo Verastegui nails it again!

_____________________________________________________________

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Eduardo Verastegui, the Hispanic heartthrob and star of the movie Bella, that resonated with millions of pro-life Americans last year, has endorsed John McCain. Verastegui says McCain is head and shoulders better on abortion issues than Barack Obama.

"John McCain is the only candidate for president that shares my values of life," Verastegui said in a statement LifeNews.com received. "He truly recognizes that we are all God's children."

"John McCain is someone we can trust to do what is right and follow through on what he says -- as opposed to Barack Obama, who does not share our traditional values of defending innocent life," the Hispanic actor and singer added.

Having succeeded in killing Terri, Mikey Schiavo has turned his attention to destroying marriage!

______________________________________________________________

As if the topic of Amendment Two, a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, was not emotional enough, now the husband of Terri Schiavo has weighed in.

Michael Schiavo, in an email to opponents of the amendment, said, ""The same people who thought they knew what was best for my wife Terri, are once again trying to tell others how to live ...As a former Republican, I think if the people behind Amendment 2 really cared about respecting a legal marriage between husband and wife, they would have respected mine."

His video on the matter can be seen at www.ProgressFlorida.org/NoOn2

Abortion tourism in Jersey.

______________________________________________________________

CHERRY HILL, NJ, October 17 /Christian Newswire/ -- An abortion clinic that performs abortions up to the sixth month of pregnancy has worked out an arrangement with two area hotels to provide substantially discounted room rates for women seeking abortions.

Based on reports from local citizens participating in the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil outside the Cherry Hill Women's Center, New Jersey Right to Life has confirmed that the Clarion Hotel in Cherry Hill offers a reduced rate of $59 for a room originally priced at $109 to those women who provide a receipt from the clinic that says they have to stay overnight. In addition, the Quality Inn in Maple Shade offers a discounted rate of $74.95 for a room originally priced at $99.99 and a free breakfast of eggs and pancakes for women who present a stamped pamphlet from the clinic.

First in the front door that Sunday morning, J.C. Gumm found a five-pound surprise as he entered church. "I heard noises like a baby cooing," Gumm said. Mr. Gumm had arrived early at church on this beautiful September day to play bass guitar in the worship band. "Oh wow, there's a baby in a towel," he said to himself. "I was thinking, 'What's a baby doing there?' I was pretty shocked." It was just like a scene from a movie.

Panic-stricken and afraid, a young woman, aged 22, thinking she read online that it is legal to leave a baby anonymously at a church as a "safe haven," had left her child. No one knew but her ex-boyfriend that she was pregnant. She had carried the baby girl one-third of a mile to the local Presbyterian Church, and left her near the entrance in hopes of giving her daughter a better life.

Roanoke, VA – Thousands of people were confronted with the truth about Sen. Barack Obama’s extreme support for abortion during one of his campaign stops in Roanoke, Virginia, on Friday, October 17.

Denny Green of Life and Liberty Ministries drove the Truth Truck to the Obama event that displayed panels depicting images of aborted babies and encouraging visits to the AbortionIsAnObamanation.com website. That site, launched in August by Operation Rescue, documents Obama’s radical support for abortion, including his position that babies that are born alive during failed abortions should not be protected by law.

I knew my mother Norma's 81st birthday would be poignant. She had been diagnosed with lung cancer six months earlier... and was not expected to survive the year.

But at least, I reasoned, she was being treated at the world-renowned Royal Marsden Hospital in West London. There she would not only receive the best possible treatment but be cared for by dedicated nurses accustomed to looking after the terminally ill...

But when I arrived on Horder Ward on the morning of my mother's birthday, she was distressed and disorientated. Instead of wearing the white linen pyjamas she had gone to bed in, she was wrapped in an NHS gown Gradually it emerged that she had woken up in the middle of the night in a pool of blood, terrified she was haemorrhaging. She had rung the bell next to her bed but there was no response.

We used to call them angels, so why have some nurses stopped caring?

Baroness Warlock continues to pursue her bloodthirst.

___________________________________________________________

The death of Daniel James, the 23-year-old rugby player who visited a Swiss euthanasia clinic last month, is the most appalling burden his parents will ever have to bear, whether or not they are prosecuted, and whether or not they are sent to prison for what they did on his behalf.

They decided to believe him when he said that after he was paralysed in a scrum his life was of no value to him, and that he would prefer death. It was not a sudden decision but one taken over many months, during which he had shown, by attempting suicide, that he was in deadly earnest. They made a deliberate moral choice, and carried it out in what must have been an agonising journey to Switzerland. Their courage has been enormous; but it would be hard to deny that they acted unlawfully.

Wesley J. Smith explains once again just how slippery a slope the deathbots have put society on.

____________________________________________________________

This is how the culture of death moves toward cultural hegemony: The first step is to claim that killing (which is descriptive and accurate in that it means "to end life") will be reserved for the very rare case. But as soon as that premise is accepted, the acceptable category of killable people steadily increases.

Now in a tragic case in the UK, we see that very process in action. An athlete who became paralyzed and subsequently suicidal, was taken by his parents to Switzerland for an assisted suicide.

European Protestants met in Vienna last week for a consultation to begin the process of drawing up a common position on euthanasia.

The Specialist Group on Ethics of the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe and other Protestant experts on the subject of euthanasia are looking at existing position papers from CPCE member churches to help draw up the common statement.

Group coordinator, Dr Dieter Heidtmann said, “The positions of the churches are based on the same values and convictions, but on individual questions they arrive at different results.” . . .

Olympia, WA (LifeNews.com) -- Leading pro-abortion groups in Washington have taken the somewhat unusual of step of endorsing a ballot measure that would make the state the second to legalize assisted suicide. A leading pro-life advocate says he's not surprised the pro-abortion movement has linked up with euthanasia advocates.

Calling it an "important" vote to "promote progress in Washington" Planned Parenthood of Washington emailed its supporters a copy of a voting guide it compiled along with other liberal groups in the state.

The names of the groups endorsing a specific candidate or ballot issue are listed, and NARAL is indicated as endorsing the assisted suicide measure....

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- As many as 200,000 pro-life students at 4,000 schools in 22 countries plan to take part in the fifth annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity on Tuesday. Sponsored by the pro-life group Stand True, the event has awakened the consciences of millions of teenagers and college students to the reality of abortion.

Bryan Kemper, president of the group, tells LifeNews.com that students in the U.S. and other nations will hear a clear pro-life message even though thousands of pro-life students will take a vow of silence to speak up for unborn children.

The students will wear red tape over their mouths or red armbands to show their support for protecting women and children from abortion....

____________________________________________________________

MELBOURNE, Australia, October 21, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A prominent Melbourne doctor has written that, contrary to popular belief, most organ donations take place before the donor is actually dead. He argues that the vague criterion of "brain death" has blinded potential donors to the fact that their organs are often harvested while they are still alive.

Pediatric intensive care specialist Dr. James Tibballs published his controversial views in the Journal of Law and Medicine earlier this month, calling upon medical institutions to review their organ harvesting guidelines to ensure that donors know that they may be volunteering to surrender their life on the operating table.

Tibballs points out that current medical practices usually contravene the law, which state that a donor must display irreversible cessation of all functions of their brain or of blood circulation in order to be eligible for the surgery. Australian doctors, however, usually wait only two minutes after a heart has stopped beating before giving the green light for harvesting, said the pediatric specialist.

But Tibballs says two minutes is inadequate time to determine whether the loss of circulation is "irreversible." The two minutes criterion was established purely for utilitarian reasons, he says - because waiting longer could threaten the viability of donated organs...

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Barack Obama running mate Joe Biden is coming under scrutiny for a new interview in which he says he thinks Catholics can support abortion. Biden also comes under fire for misstating the effect of Roe v. Wade and denying that it allows virtually unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy.

In the interview with the Delaware News Journal, Biden talks about how he can reconcile his pro-abortion views with his Catholic faith.

"It's very difficult," Biden says. "I was raised as a Catholic, I'm a practicing Catholic, and I'm totally at home with the Catholicism that I was raised in and this whole culture of social responsibility."

We ALREADY have a "right" to die and God decides WHEN and HOW.

Thread by markomalley.

___________________________________________________________

The Crown Prosecution Service is considering, yet again, whether to prosecute and possibly imprison otherwise law-abiding Britons for helping their loved ones to die. The parents of Daniel James, a 23-year-old rugby player crippled in a training accident, last month accompanied him to the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland, where assisted suicide is legal. In all hundred such cases so far, the director of public prosecutions has declined to act. The law is clearly unfit for purpose.

This is not regarded by parliament as a sufficient reason for changing the law. Social reform in Britain occurs not when legislators feel it appropriate but when a heart-rending case achieves mass publicity and good people launch a campaign for change. Such has been the case with laws on homosexuality, prostitution, abortion and self-defence - and perhaps one day will apply to recreational drugs. Westminster inertia always holds sway until it is overcome by an infuriated public.

Denial of the right to die is sheer religious primitivism (barf alert)

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- One of the top pro-life leaders in the country says every victory the pro-life movement has accomplished on the issue of abortion could be undone depending on the results of the election. With pro-abortion Barack Obama and John McCain, who opposes abortion, the fate of abortion may be sealed for decades.

It is a near certainty that John Paul Stevens will retire or die in the next four years. I don’t completely trust that McCain will appoint the “fifth vote” to overturn Roe (though his choice of Palin certainly gives me hope), but I KNOW that Obama won’t.

And Ginsburg will probably resign in four years, as well.

McCain said he will pick judges like Roberts and Alito, and we will hold him to it, just like we pressured President Bush (and we won).

I’m thinking that McCain would pick both conservatives and “moderates,” but for some reason, I think he might want to show his “maverick” side, and pick Janice Rogers Brown. Maybe I’m naive, but she was one of the ones that the gang of 14 settled for, and now she’s a D.C. circuit judge.

Janice Rogers Brown would be perfect. I think there are several states that are ready to pass laws outlawing abortion, but want to wait for the enough votes on the Court (though I still think that Kennedy would overturn Roe if presented with the “right” case).

This, they say in a co-authored article published today, could be accomplished by removing one simple impediment - the requirement of donor "death." In a separate article, published last week, Wilkinson suggested an even more radical plan – mandatory organ donation.

"We could abandon the dead donor rule," wrote the pair in today’s article, published on Oxford’s Centre of Practical Ethics’ website. "We could for example, allow organs to be taken from people who are not brain dead, but who have suffered such severe injury that they would be permanently unconscious, like Terry Schiavo, who would be allowed to die anyway by removal of their medical treatment."

"We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will give you no rest."

Cardinal Rigali issues Pastoral letter stating abortion is the "Transcending Issue of Our Day"

The transcending issue of our day is the intentional destruction of innocent human life, as in abortion. We wish with all our hearts that no candidate and no party were advocating this heinous act against the human person. However, since it is a transcending issue, and even supported in its most extreme and horrific forms, we must proclaim time and time again that no intrinsic evil can ever be supported in any way, most especially when it concerns the gravest of all intrinsic evils: the taking of an innocent life...

Palin Delivers Rousing Clarion Call for Dignity of Children with Disabilities

CORAOPOLIS, PA, October 24, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Since being nominated as the GOP Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin has made support for families of children with special needs a priority of her campaign. Today she offered her first policy speech on the issue in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania.

With many families with special needs children attending the talk in the airport hotel ballroom, Palin set the tone of her speech by telling her audience not to worry about the crying and jostling, saying, "That's the sound of life."

Second NARAL Mailer to Key States Attacks McCain and Palin on Abortion

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Leading pro-abortion group NARAL is sending a second mailer to key battleground states after a first one attacked John McCain on birth control. The new mailer finally features abortion as a central issue and claimed McCain and Palin are "even more anti-choice than George Bush and Dick Cheney."

"On their own, John McCain and Sarah Palin are bad for women," the NARAL mailer claims. "Together? They're downright dangerous."

"John McCain and Sarah Palin oppose a woman's right to choose and want Roe v. Wade overturned," the mailer adds.

Caplan: Beware Holocaust analogies (Euthanasia and Bioethics)

While it is common for analogies to be made between topics such as abortion or euthanasia and the Holocaust, the vast majority of such analogies are baseless, Arthur Caplan, director of the Center for Bioethics at Penn, explained in a talk at the Lewis-Thomas Laboratory on Tuesday.

~snip~

With the context of Nazi experimentation in mind, Caplan explained, comparisons portraying bioethical issues like the Terri Schiavo case as analogous to the Holocaust are inaccurate. “[They] fail to understand the Nazi approach to euthanasia,” he said.

The debate in that case concerned whether Schiavo would have wanted her feeding tube removed or be sustained indefinitely in a persistent vegetative state. Nazi physicians, in contrast to modern bioethicists, did not take issues of patient consent and quality of life into account.

If people had suggested that Schiavo’s feeding tube be removed because the cost of keeping her alive was harmful to society, Caplan explained, their utilitarianism could have been related to the Nazis’.

Haleigh Poutre update...

The judge is going to let them blame Haleigh's injuries on herself.

From MassLive.com.

___________________________________________________________

By BUFFY SPENCER bspencer@repub.com GREENFIELD - A judge Wednesday told lawyers in the high profile child abuse case against Jason D. Strickland that he doesn't want to psychoanalyze potential jurors but he does want to know what prospective jurors know about the case.

Superior Court Judge Judd J. Carhart said he would not allow jurors to be questioned about issues relating to terminating life support, saying it is not part of the case that stems from the serious brain injury to Strickland's stepdaughter, 14-year-old Haleigh Poutre. Asking jurors what they know about a case is standard.

~snip~

She said that she expects there will be a serious dispute at trial over whether Haleigh was self-abusive and repeatedly caused injury to herself, as some doctors and counselors had said prior to the girl's hospitalization on Sept. 11, 2005, with the serious brain injury...

Blacks Suspect Stealth Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic (North Carolina)

FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina, October 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Black pro-life activists with graphic signs will be in Fayetteville on tomorrow morning at 10:00 am at 4551 Yadkin Road in Fayetteville, NC, to expose what is believed to be a stealth Planned Parenthood Abortion clinic in the making. Pastor Johnny Hunter says that when he received word that Planned Parenthood was hiding behind the name Tharrington Medical Clinic to renovate the old Pizza Hut building on Yakin road and turn it into an abortion clinic he became angry. "I refuse to sit back and let an organization founded by a racist sneak into our town and set up a shop to murder babies," Hunter says. He remembers that Planned Parenthood built an abortion clinic in Aurora, Illinois, before citizens there like Eric Scheidler, with the Pro-Life Action League knew what was being built.

A reminder of just what is at stake in this election.

Thread by Clintonfatigued.

What's At Stake (Roe vs. Wade)

Why just one judge? Because the nine justices on the U.S. Supreme Court only get there when the officials YOU elect appoint and confirm them.

The next Senate and President will appoint and confirm the one justice who will be the deciding vote on whether to overturn Roe v. Wade...to restore the Constitutional guarantee of Life, or to allow the killing of innocent unborn children to continue.

This election is America's last hope in this generation to reverse Roe v. Wade and send the issue back to the states, so citizens can lobby their state legislatures for laws allowing for parenetal notification and the discontinuance of the brutal practice of late term abortions.

Today's U.S. Supreme Court is just ONE appointment away from determining the critical matters of life. Your vote is your choice in who the next Supreme Court justice will be. Your ONE vote could be the difference on November 4...

A question that Barack REFUSES to answer.

Thread by me.

When Does a Baby Get Human Rights?

When Pastor Rick Warren asked Barack Obama “at what point does a baby get human rights,” Sen. Obama hesitated and answered, “Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”

Once upon a time, as an Illinois state Senator, answering that question was well within his pay grade.

Severely ill should know non-death options

At the end of last month, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed AB 2747, the Terminal Patients' Right to Know End-of-Life Options Act, into law. Supporters hailed it as a victory for Californians in their final days because it requires full disclosure of all options available to terminally ill patients, including euthanasia. Opponents, however, said they worried that the new law would push vulnerable, possibly depressed and uninformed people toward a hasty and ill-considered demise.

I was an agnostic on the question at first. Both sides offered compelling arguments. But after a recent, grueling, three-month hospitalization at the UCLA Medical Center's intensive-care unit, I am sadly drawn to the latter view. It's too easy to tip the severely ill toward craving death above other options.

Cardinal Egan nails the abortion issue!

Thread by NYer.

Just Look

One day, please God, when the stranglehold on public opinion in the United States has been released by the extremists for whom abortion is the center of their political and moral life, our nation will, in my judgment, look back on what we have been doing to innocent human beings within their mothers as a crime no less heinous than what was approved by the Supreme Court in the "Dred Scott Case" in the 19th century, and no less heinous than what was perpetrated by Hitler and Stalin in the 20th. There is nothing at all complicated about the utter wrongness of abortion, and making it all seem complicated mitigates that wrongness not at all. On the contrary, it intensifies it...
