Man Wakes From Coma Just Before Plug Is Pulled

A California man, who spent four days in a coma and was about to be disconnected from life support, is now on his way to making a full recovery.

Mike Connelly’s family had just given doctors permission to turn off the machines keeping him alive when his stepson noticed a tear slide down the side of his face, the North Coast Times reported.

Moments later, another family member was shouting that the 56-year-old was responding. . .

Husband of Woman in Coma for 17 Years Visits Wife Three Times Daily, Won't Give Up

SANTIAGO, February 18, 2009 (LifeSitenNews.com) - In a story that stands in stark contrast to the Eluana Englaro and Terri Schiavo cases in Italy and the United States, a Chilean man has been visiting his comatose wife for 17 years, and says he won't give up on her.

Carlos Abarca has always visited his wife regularly, and now that he has retired from the national police force, he is able to come three times a day.  He says that caring for her is his whole life.

"My affection will always be focused on her, I have never doubted it," he told the Chilean daily El Mercurio, which broke the story.  "I don't seek for more from life than caring for her.  There is nothing more to do."

The affection he has for his wife, says Abarca, is "stronger than ever.  I want to protect her, care for her, make sure she is well, that she lacks nothing."

Erika Sotelo has been in a coma since 1995, when the anesthesia given to her for a hysterectomy caused her heart to stop beating.  By the time doctors revived her, Sotelo's brain had suffered damage due to oxygen deprivation. She has never recovered complete consciousness.

However, her husband has never lost hope in her, and recognizes signs of awareness in his wife, despite doctors' claims that she is in a "vegetative state."

ROME: (Catholic Online) - "Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage.

"His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."

PERSONHOOD IN NORTH DAKOTA

Subject: North Dakota Passes Personhood Bill!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
North Dakota Personhood Bill Passes, First In US History.

Bismark, ND. Signaling the growing momentum of the personhood movement, North Dakota Lawmakers approved HB1572 with a vote of 51-41.

Rep. Dan Ruby introduced the "Personhood" bill, which affirms the rights of pre-born humans and states: "For purposes of interpretation of the constitution and laws of North Dakota, it is the intent of the legislative assembly that an individual, a person, when the context indicates that a reference to an individual is intended, or a human being includes any organism with the genome of homo sapiens."

Thousands of calls to legislators were made by pro-life Grassroots volunteers which helped with this victory. Only one Representative voiced opposition to the bill during the debate of the bill, while overwhelming public support was seen.

"Personhood USA applauds the leadership and support that the North Dakota Policy Council and the North Dakota Life League have shown to make this victory happen," stated Keith Mason of Personhood USA. He continued, "We thank Rep. Dan Ruby for his courage and for being actively pro-life. This great family man is an example to us all."

"North Dakotans have gotten used to cold temperatures like -44 degrees, but they haven't gotten used to child-killing. We applaud and support their efforts to protect every baby by love and by law," commented Cal Zastrow, who, along with his family, worked on the North Dakota bill on the grassroots level.

The next step for Bill 1576 is to be voted on by the State Senate which could happen in the next two weeks. . .

Catholic Priest Returns Italian Award After Nation Allows Killing of Eluana Englaro

Rome, Italy (LifeNews.com) -- A Catholic priest has returned the award he received from the president of Italy in protest of the nation allowing Eluana Englaro's father to subject her to a starvation euthanasia death. Father Aldo Trento, who works with severely disabled and minimally conscious patients like Englaro, is upset she was killed.

Englaro had been in a minimally conscious state since 1992, when she was involved in an automobile accident. After four days earlier this month of partial starvation and dehydration, she died.

Father Trento, a missionary at the Priestly Fraternity of St. Charles Borromeo in Paraguay, heads a clinic for the terminally ill.

According to a Zenit report, he received the title "Knight of the Order of the Star of Solidarity" in June from Italian president Giorgio Napolitano.

But last week, he returned the honor to Napolitano after his refusal to sign a special Cabinet-approved measure that would have saved Englaro's life.

"How can I, an Italian citizen, receive such an honor from you, who, with your action, permitted the death of Eluana in the name of the Italian Republic?" he said, according to Zenit.

Father Trento also spoke with the newspaper Il Foglio.

"I have more than one case like Eluana Englaro," he said about the patients at his clinic. "I think of little Victor, a child in a coma, who clenches his fists. All we do is feed him through a tube. Faced with these situations, how can I react to the case of Eluana?"

He described some of the patients that he has seen who others said were without hope.

"Yesterday they brought me a girl who was naked, a prostitute, in a coma, who had been dumped in front of a hospital. Her name is Patricia and she is 19. We washed her. Yesterday she started to move her eyes," he told the newspaper.

"Celeste is 11; she suffers from a very grave form of leukemia; she was never taken care of and they brought her to me just to bury. Today she is walking. And she laughs," he added. . .

Hawaii Bill for Assisted Suicide Fast-Tracked, Gets House Panel Hearing in Days

Honolulu, HI (LifeNews.com) -- A Hawaii state House committee will hold a hearing within days on a bill that would make the state the fourth to legalize assisted suicide. The bill has been fast-tracked and will skip a health panel that has defeated the measure during past sessions of the state legislature.

Assisted suicide is legal in Oregon, and Washington voters and Montana courts made those states the second and third to allow the practice.

Although the Hawaii legislature has defeated past attempts to turn physicians into what opponents call "merchants of death," the moving of the bill to a different committee could make it more difficult for the groups fighting it.

In opposing the assisted suicide bill, pro-life groups have joined with Catholic organizations, disability rights advocates and doctors groups.

According to Scott Foster of Hawaii Death With Dignity, a hearing notice could come out within the next few days about HB 806 and HB 587 in the House Judiciary Committee.

Foster applauds the fast-tracking of the bill, saying "it bypasses the House Health Committee where our bill has been routinely killed in past years. This 'fast track' suggests that the bill may have a fighting chance."

Foster also says the 2008 ballot vote helps his cause: "The recent successful Washington State initiative shows that the idea has not gone away as some might wish."

OKC officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle

An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle.

The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read "Abort Obama, not the unborn."

Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over. . .

The Catholic Crusade Against a Mythical Abortion Bill

The U.S. Catholic Church's crusade against the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) has all the hallmarks of a well-oiled lobbying campaign. A national postcard campaign is flooding the White House and congressional offices with messages opposing FOCA, and the Catholic bishops have made defeating the abortion rights legislation a top priority. In the most recent effort to stop the bill, Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia sent a letter to every member of Congress imploring them to "please oppose FOCA."

There is only one hitch. Congress isn't about to pass the Freedom of Choice Act because no such bill has been introduced.

At a time when the United States is gripped by economic uncertainty and faces serious challenges in hot spots around the globe, some American Catholics are finding it both curious and troubling that their church has launched a major campaign against a piece of legislation that doesn't exist and wouldn't have much chance of becoming law even if it did. To many critics, it feels like the legislative equivalent of the the Dog That Didn't Bark. . .

Abortions Need More Funding Than Medical Surgeries Oregon Health Plan Says

Salem, OR (LifeNews.com) -- A new analysis finds that the Oregon Health Plan is perhaps the first government-run health care plan in the world to draw up official procedures for rationing. The plan ranks various surgeries and diseases and conditions in order of importance and places abortion high on the list.

Linda Gorman, a senior fellow with the Independence Institute, produced the analysis, which comes on the heels of concerns about similar rationing in the Congressional economic stimulus bill.

~snip~

Surprisingly, abortions rank 41st on the list of 680 most important surgeries and conditions to consider.

That indicates "the state considers using public money for abortions more important than treating" other things, Gorman said. . .

'Right to die' can become a 'duty to die'

Imagine that you have lung cancer. It has been in remission, but tests show the cancer has returned and is likely to be terminal. Still, there is some hope. Chemotherapy could extend your life, if not save it. You ask to begin treatment. But you soon receive more devastating news. A letter from the government informs you that the cost of chemotherapy is deemed an unjustified expense for the limited extra time it would provide. However, the government is not without compassion. You are informed that whenever you are ready, it will gladly pay for your assisted suicide. . .

"Brain Death" as Criteria for Organ Donation is a "Deception": Bereaved Mother

ROME, February 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bernice Jones came to Rome last week to tell the world that doctors killed her son by removing his organs. "Brain death is not death" and "organ donation is very deceptive," the bereaved mother told LifeSiteNews.com in an interview on Thursday.

Mrs. Jones was attending an international conference on the dangers of so-called "brain death" criteria and related her experience of losing her son, Brandon, who was declared "brain dead" and used as an organ donor.

"Families are led to believe that their loved ones are dead," Jones told LSN, "but in fact they are alive. You must be alive to be a vital organ donor." Families, she said, are being deceived by doctors and hospital administrators, "by everyone who is involved in organ transplantation." The declaration of brain death "is a deception, a violent deception, that your loved one is dead."

Florida Prosecutor Continues to Stonewall on Criminal Charges in Hialeah Baby Murder Case

MIAMI, FL, February 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Ignoring a letter signed by 44 members of the State House of Representatives Friday, Florida State Attorney Katherine Rundle issued a statement indicating that no decision has been made on the filing of criminal charges against abortionist Pierre Renelique and others involved in the intentional murder of a baby born alive during a botched abortion at a Hialeah abortion clinic.

Rundle's statement was in response to a press conference held by Rev. Pat Mahoney, Director of the Washington, DC based Christian Defense Coalition, calling on her to bring criminal charges.

Rundle said in part, "While we understand the emotional perception that this is an 'easy matter' nothing could be further from the truth. The legal and ethical requirements that we be able to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt dictate that we thoroughly complete our investigation before we come to a legal decision in this matter."

Prosecuting Attorney Brian Hurley told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) that the Planned Parenthood employees "played ostrich" when the girl told them she was being raped.

"We believe that they ignored Denise's cry for help ... and as a result she was sexually abused three times a week for a year and a half because they didn't meet their duties to report," said Hurley. . .

DeMint condemns healthcare rationing in stimulus bill

"Your medical treatments will be tracked electronically by a federal system," writes Betsy McCaughey, adjunct senior fellow at the Hudson Institute. "Having electronic medical records at your fingertips, easily transferred to a hospital, is beneficial. It will help avoid duplicate tests and errors.

"But the bill goes further. One new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective. The goal is to reduce costs and 'guide' your doctor's decisions."

In short, rationing.

The above quote is from an excellent editorial in the Augusta Chronicle, as reported by Free Republic (hat tip to Gateway Pundit), that focuses on Senator Jim DeMint's contention that citizens are going to need to take to the streets to protest the Stimulus Bill, not only due to the uncontrolled spending but due to the nationalization of healthcare contained in the bill.

The perpetrators of the 'economic stimulus bill (which is nothing more than a spending bill for liberal projects) inserted funding for nationalizing healthcare, the result of which will be rationing, especially for senior adults. . .

The ONLY reason that ANYONE wants to spend a penny on embryonic stem cells is because it provides a safeguard for abortion.

Thread by GodGunsGuts.

Adult Stem Cells, +2; Embryonic Stem Cells, -1

Feb 23, 2009 — Two more successes were chalked up for adult stem cell therapies recently. Science Daily said that sufferers from Crohn’s disease may have a new treatment option by getting injections of their own bone marrow stem cells. This “now constitutes a treatment option to cure an intestinal disease that sometimes does not successfully respond to drugs and requires highly complex surgery that does not provide a cure.”

Those afflicted with type 2 diabetes also have hope, thanks to adult stem cells. Science Daily also reported that progenitor cells exist in the adult pancreas. “It is now clear that progenitor cells, with the capacity to become insulin producing cells, reside in the adult pancreas,” said researchers from UC San Diego and the Burnham Institute for Medical Research. They found that the Wnt signaling pathway is implicated in the development of type 2 diabetes. By understanding these protein-signaling pathways, they can begin to take their stem cell research toward therapeutic treatments.

Not so good for embryonic stem cells. Nature News reported, “Hybrid embryos fail to live up to stem-cell hopes.” Heidi Ledford explained, “The creation of human-animal hybrid embryos – proposed as a way to generate embryonic stem cells without relying on scarce human eggs – has met with legislative hurdles and public outcry. But a paper published this week suggests that the approach has another, more fundamental problem: it may simply not work.” Researchers could not get them to grow past the 16-cell stage, and they failed to become pluripotent. The problem seems more fundamental than trying over and over again. Some ethicists may be glad for that. . .

Ave Maria University Will Hold National Mass for Terri Schiavo's Day in March

Naples, FL (LifeNews.com) -- The Florida-based Ave Maria University will hold a national mass in honor of Terri Schiavo on March 31, the day that has been set aside to honor the disabled woman who became an international inspiration. Schiavo was killed on that date when her husband won a court order to take her life.

Terri's Foundation, the group Terri's family put together to help disabled people like her, and Priests for Life have come together for the memorial date for Terri.

In conjunction with Terri's Day, Ave Maria University will host “The National Mass for Terri’s Day” at its Naples campus.

Father Frank Pavone, president of the Catholic pro-life group, will be the main celebrant, along with Father Thomas Euteneuer, the president of Human Life International.

Terri's brother Bobby Schindler told LifeNews.com on Wednesday that the mass is another way to help his family point out how discrimination against patients like Terri continues. . .

It is my long-held belief that Darwinists use the creation vs. evolution debate to hide their true agenda.

Eugenics … death of the defenceless: The legacy of Darwin’s cousin Galton

Few ideas have done more harm to the human race in the last 120 years than those of Sir Francis Galton. He founded the evolutionary pseudo-science of eugenics. Today, ethnic cleansing, the use of abortion to eliminate ‘defective’ unborn babies, infanticide, euthanasia, and the harvesting of unborn babies for research purposes all have a common foundation in the survival-of-the-fittest theory of eugenics. So who was Galton, what is eugenics, and how has it harmed humanity?...

Hmmmmmm. I wonder if Sebelius’ appointment to HHS is being held up until that trial is over. You know how calculating our new fuhrer is so the masses think he’s a nice guy,not the most pro-abort, pro-euthanasia person in the dem party. Barack Hussein Abortion should be his name.

There was a thread posted about that earlier, but it seems to have disappeared.
