I know this was a pretty much a forgone conclusion, but it is still frightening how few recognize the danger.

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Voters approved Initiative 1000 on Tuesday, making Washington the second state to give terminally ill people the option of medically assisted suicide.

The Most Pro-Abortion President in History: Barack Hussein Obama to Become 44th US President

Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for life issued a strongly-worded video statement putting Obama's victory in perspective with the future of the pro-life movement.

"This is one of the biggest mistakes that the American people have made in the entire history of our nation," said Fr. Pavone, "and the many reasons why that's true will come to light as the months go on. But the biggest reason why that's true is that here we have a president-elect who cannot tell the difference betweens serving the public and killing the public.

"If you don't know when human rights begin, then you're in no position to govern a country that was founded on the principle of human rights," said Fr. Pavone. Sen. Obama, when asked at the Saddleback Church forum when he thought a child gained human rights, infamously answered that the question was "above my pay grade."

"A lot changes with this," Fr. Pavone continued, noting that pro-lifers will no longer be able to work inside the White House, and will be forced to turn to defensive maneuvers in the U.S legislature.

However, "change" is far from the whole story, says Pavone, who reminds viewers of the many things that remain the same.

"The American people are pro-life," he affirmed. "The American people have never bought into the extreme abortion position of Obama and his party. And they never will. That is why the American people ... will continue to work with us.

Above all, Fr. Pavone declared, "What is never going to change is that this movement is headed for victory.

"We have started a movement on behalf of the unborn, and that movement enters a new chapter today, a chapter of new determination, of new vigor, of new strategy."

Pavone spoke words of comfort to pro-lifers struggling to accept the election news.

"Be encouraged! It's fine to be disappointed about the outcome of an election," he said. "But we can never walk away from the cause. Together we will work, we will protest, we will defend, we will intervene, we will educate, and we will win this struggle for the lives of our unborn brothers and sisters."

To see Fr. Pavone's video and statement, go to:

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

Sometimes the simplest of statements can have the greatest impact.

"The Killing Must End”: Christian Defense Coalition to Launch Major Post-Inaugural Pro-Life Campaign

"It is clear that Mr. Obama will continue the tragic violence against our nation's women and children which has resulted in over 50,000,000 abortions," said Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, in a recent statement.

The focus of the project, according to the press release, will be "to mobilize a public, prayerful and prophetic witness for life to challenge the radical pro-abortion policies of President-elect Barack Obama" on January 21-24, 2009.

"'The Birmingham Letter Project' is about empowering and unleashing the pro-life community to stand against this injustice just as civil rights workers stood against the injustice of segregation, violence and racism a generation ago," said Mahoney.

"We are taking to heart the admonition of Dr. King when he said from a Birmingham jail, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,' and will passionately devote ourselves toward bringing this war on America's children to an end. …

"We will not go silently into the night and allow the violence to continue. Instead, we are issuing this national call for the pro-life community to come to the streets of our nation's capital and be a prayerful voice for those who have no voice.

"Our message is clear. Now is the time. We are the people. The killing must end."
