More on the horrors that Haleigh endured.
By Patricia Wen, Globe Staff
SPRINGFIELD - Displaying hospital photos of Haleigh Poutre's battered body shortly after she fell into a coma in 2005, a child-abuse expert today depicted the girl as the victim of systematic abuse that included cigarette burns and physical restraints, not a troubled child engaging in self-injurious behavior as defense attorneys have suggested.
One photo, shown by Dr. Christine Barron during the child abuse trial of Haleigh's stepfather, revealed the girl's bare back, with nearly a dozen bruises and cuts on all sides and near the spine. Barron said the shape of many of the wounds suggested that the 11-year-old Westfield girl was struck multiple times by a "hard solid object."
"Is that an area a child could reach herself?" asked prosecutor Laurel Brandt, pointing to an image of a circular wound on the child's back...
Thanks for the ping!
Increidble to suggest those injuries were self inflicted.
You’re very welcome.

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 20, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In light of further actual and rumored appointments, Obamas future presidential administration is steadily emerging as a regime ominously packed with Obama insiders who promise to help roll out the carpet for the President-elect's radical anti-life and anti-family agenda.
Media outlets recently named Arizona governor Janet Napolitano as Obamas probable choice for secretary of Homeland Security.
An early Obama supporter and campaigner, Napolitano firmly established herself as an extreme abortion supporter by vetoing the partial birth abortion ban, and in one month she vetoed four anti-abortion bills. In 2005 NARAL warmly praised the governor for vetoing a bill that would have allowed Arizona pharmacies not to distribute the abortifacient morning-after pill due to a moral or religious objection.
Tom Dashcle has recently been named as the likely candidate for the next Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), an appointment Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council said gives pro-lifers a frightening glimpse into the new Cabinet.
The former Democratic Senate majority leader gained notoriety for his liberal views on abortion when he opposed the partial-birth abortion ban, endorsed taxpayer-funded military abortions, and supported taxpayer funding to provide morning-after pills to young public school girls. Perkins also lamented that Daschle, a man with no experience in public health, is on track to become the ultimate authority on federal health issues.
One of the national co-chairs for Obamas presidential campaign, Daschle warmed early on to Obama and in 2007 gushed that the Illinois senator personifies the future of Democratic leadership in our country.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Pepperdine law professor who calls himself a pro-life Catholic but was one of the leading apologists for perhaps the most pro-abortion presidential candidate in history is at it again. Douglas Kmiec is now saying Barack Obama is more Catholic than previous presidents who were pro-life.
Kmiec's comments come in response to some from Cardinal J. Francis Stafford, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See, who called Obama on the carpet on abortion in a speech at the Catholic University of America last Thursday...

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- If some Americans voted for Barack Obama for president without knowing his strong pro-abortion views, a new Pew study finds the media is partly to blame. The new Pew Forum study found less than 1 percent of campaign news coverage related to abortion issues...
More PROPAGANDA. If they say the lie enough, they’ll find somebody to believe he’s almost The Pope, no disrespect to the Pope.

The greatest hope to save the life of Eluana Englaro is to have the Italian government pass an emergency measure defining food and water as a human right, and not medical treatment, he said. While a group of pro-life advocates have brought a request for a hearing on the subject to the European Court of Human Rights, such an attempt, he said, will almost certainly result in a backlash against the legal concept of the right to life.

December 10 is the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Rumor is that pro-abortion radicals will use this celebration to demand a universal right to abortion.
For years pro-abortion radicals have tried to strip the right to life from unborn children. They pressure countries to reinterpret U.N. documents and write new ones that deny children, families and parents of their human rights. They even claim that the "right to life" in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and treaties means a right to abortion!
We expect pro-abortion activists to present petitions making this ridiculous claim to the General Assembly at the Dec. 10th event at the U.N. We need to outdo them.

KINGSTON, Jamaica, November 21, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) A recent presentation by a woman who 20 years ago bullied her daughter into having an abortion reduced members of the Jamaican parliament to tears, reports the Jamaica Gleaner.
Anne Arthur, a grief counselor, told the parliament she has never fully recovered from having bullied her daughter into killing her unborn child. "I drove my daughter to the abortion clinic like a lamb to the slaughterhouse, against her will," Arthur told her audience.
"I pressed my views on her and convinced her that she would be unable to care for the child while studying and an abortion would be the best thing to do, offering her no other solution or help While my 12-week-old grand-daughter was ripped apart from my daughter's womb, I knew with brutal clarity that I had made the greatest mistake of my life," said Arthur.
Arthur told the parliamentary gathering that she does not support abortion under any circumstances now, even under the usual exceptions of rape and incest. She said that her 41-year old daughter, now married, has had trouble conceiving because of the damage the abortion, which was performed legally in Germany, caused.

Congratulations, Alamo-Girl, on the Release of Your New Book!
There Is Only One Great Commandment
Lulu Press, 2008
It is my honor and distinct pleasure to announce the publication of Alamo-Girls new book, There Is Only One Great Commandment, a prayerful work of Christian witness and devotion that speaks to how one centers ones life in God. A non-denominational, non-sectarian work, it focuses on Christian living on the growth of the Image of Christ in our souls, in our everyday lives.
In There Is Only One Great Commandment, Alamo-Girl offers to conduct you on a spiritual walk through the Scriptures, using the Lords Prayer as the guiding map, mining the truths embedded within that prayer. As marron writes on the cover, "Each word and phrase has been pulled out, held to the light, admired, contemplated, and then returned carefully to its place. And the way it was written is exactly the right way to read this book: This is not a book to read in a day but tasted and chewed morsel by morsel. Take your time. Let it sink in line by line. You wont be disappointed."
All to the glory of God in Christian faith and confident affirmation that there is only one great commandment: To love God with your whole heart, and soul, and mind to love Him surpassingly above all else.
“we must try”
If we make a lot of noise, I think we can at least limit evil, and God will bless us for trying.
Congrats, Alamo-Girl, and glad and proud that you’re a fellow FReeper.

SPRINGFIELD - Twelve jurors began deliberations this afternoon in the child abuse case of Haleigh Poutre's stepfather, Jason Strickland, but recessed after about an hour without reaching a verdict.
They will resume tomorrow deciding whether they believe the 34-year-old auto mechanic who told them under oath last week that he never hurt Haleigh and had assumed her many bruises, cuts and burns were from accidents or her own doing...

Washington, DC -- A top Catholic leader says it is possible that Catholic members of Congress who vote for the Freedom of Choice Act could face excommunication. The legislation would make unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy the law of the land and overturn hundreds of pro-life laws nationwide that reduce abortions.

ROSWELL, GA, November 24, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Pro-life television commercials with a proven track record of substantially lowering abortion rates are set to air on MTV beginning the day after Christmas.
With more than 98% of US homes having televisions, and the average American spending over 5 hours every day consuming media, it is easy to see how VirtueMedia can reach millions of people each day using powerful broadcast commercials to positively affect culture.
Four U.S. regions with significant abortion-vulnerable populations recently reported a decrease in abortions in response to the airing of VirtueMedia's educational pro-life ads, partnered with other effective pro-life efforts...

BALTIMORE, November 24, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Though she had practiced the procedure as a student at the University of Maryland School of Medicine by scraping out a piece of fruit with razor-sharp abortion instruments, Lesley Wojcik learned that her training could never have prepared her for a real abortion.
What caught her off-guard, says the second-year med student, was the brutality of a procedure that subjects women to extreme pain.
In a Washington Post article detailing her journey to become an abortionist, Wojcik describes how during her first witnessed abortion, she recoiled in horror as the mother began letting out blood-curdling screams. The woman, who was "in obvious pain," had been only partially sedated, and the ordeal was so disturbing that Wojcik says she nearly vomited...
