Pernicious Planned Parenthood Proving Principled Father Neuhaus Right

A young, idealistic Obama supporter emailed me (and others) this message soon after Election Day 2008: "Please read the information at this site and sign the petition opposing the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). This is basically a piece of legislation that will wipe away EVERY restriction on abortion nationwide regarding parental consent, which trimester, partial birth abortions, etc. Thank you."

That person (and millions of others) should have focused on the respective positions of the presidential candidates on the Freedom of Choice Act BEFORE they voted.

Electing a black man was historic, but a candidate's color or race should not determine whether or not he or she should be supported. That was NOT Dr. Martin Luther King's famous dream.

If 2008 was destined to be the year America elected a black man President, it should have been one who embraces life and traditional American values,. like Ambassador Alan Keyes, not the President-Elect.

Last Halloween, which Team Obama was tricking many prospective voters, Father Richard John Neuhaus, editor in chief of First Things, offered a treat to America's voters, am article titled "Why this Election is About the Freedom of Religion" warning what was at stake on Election Day 2008.

Father Neuhaus began: "One can argue that every presidential election is a 'historic' election. But some are more historic than others. Daniel Henninger had a provocative column yesterday making a strong case that this one is a 'tipping point' between America continuing as an entrepreneurial society or going the way of the European 'social democracies.' He cites the late Senator Pat Moynihan who said the big difference between Europe and America is that the former gives priority to equality and the latter to liberty. I'm not sure that Henninger is right in saying there would be no turning back after four or eight years of President Obama and an overwhelmingly Democratic Congress imposing their passion for a government-directed program of redistribution and social coordination, but the future he depicts is both plausible and ominous."

Father Neuhaus is right: the situation is ominous, but not hopeless.

Father Neuhaus continued: "There is another dimension of this ideological passion for the expansion of government control that is at least equally worrying. It has to do with the freedom of religion in the American constitutional order and the indispensable part that religion plays in checking the ambitions of the modern democratic state. Obama has said that he thinks it is 'tragic' that the Supreme Court has declined to advance the cause of redistributive justice. That refers, of course, to economic redistribution. But the language of healing divisions and bringing us all together—under government auspices—applies also to the social dynamics of American society."

Alas, thanks to the bulk of the major media and inept McCain campaign strategy, millions of voters were unaware of the danger of which Father Neuhaus warned...

The deathbots want to practice eugenics, they just want to have plausible deniability.

Thread by me.

British Government Criticized for Keeping Abortions on Disabled Babies a Secret

Washington, DC ( -- The government of Britain is coming under heavy fire for keeping secret the number of abortions purposefully done on babies because they are physically or mentally disabled. The abortions include those done on babies who would have been born with only a club foot or cleft palate.

The information commissioner ordered the release of the numbers to be a part of a new report showing the total abortions in England over the last six months.

However the Department of Health is resisting and claiming that the release of the numbers, even though that have been released in prior years, would somehow identify the women having the abortions. Yet, any personal information is redacted.

The law in the UK allows abortions for any reason up to 24 weeks into pregnancy and for reasons including possible birth defects for the unborn child at any time during the pregnancy.

Pro-life groups are concerned that the law is being abused by those who want to use it for eugenics purposes by killing potentially disabled babies...

Kill the babies in the womb,
kill the Terris in their beds,
burn the Christians in their church
it's Miller Time, he said.

The Lord has a plan. Do not lose faith. He has a plan. He just keeps telling me that over and over. I don’t know what it is, but ‘though he slay me, yet I will believe’.

Keep praying, and keep watch. The Lord has not forsaken us. Obama and the democrats will be aborted. Their plans will be aborted. I have no doubt.
