Thanks for the ping!

The reality of abortion - YouTube-style
Fr. Pavone is a great educator. In this video, he leaves out any emotionalism, and just tells it like it is.

Abortion, health care, and socialism
Contrary to a popular fallacy that science and religion are at odds with each other, it's quite the opposite.
Science and religion are the best of friends. And like good friends, they complement each other and produce beautiful music together.
Take the recent incident of the young woman in Bryan, Texas -- the director of the Planned Parenthood abortion mill down there -- who had a change of heart and quit her job when she saw, for the first time, an unborn child on an ultrasound screen.

A Reality Check from the Discipleship Front, (Anti-Catholics meet the Bishops -- Healthcare Bill)
What the hell dont you understand about the term separation of Church and State. Keep your evil hands off of our Health Care Bill. Mind your own business. We dont care about your beliefs, and if you want to meddle in our affairs, we will be coming for you. If thats how you want to play, we will come for your pedophile priests, your ill-gotten money you stole for decades. The Catholic church is just another organized crime syndicate that should be put out of business. Get the fk away from Congress, or you will regret it .
Thats a real e-mail from a real person. The man who sent it last week was either very candid or very foolish about his anger: he added his real name and e-mail address. Ive withheld them here because I like to hope that most people, or at least many of them, are better than the poisonous things they sometimes write. But this e-mail does teach a useful lesson, because its not just a case of a random bigot getting in touch with his inner bully. Instead, its a snapshot of the anti-Catholic bitterness that drives some of the loudest voices in the current health-care debate.

Here's an off-site article (Lancaster Eagle Gazette) about a four month old baby boy. We now have county commissioners voting on who gets to live and who must die. I hope a FReeper will start a thread about this and ping me to it.
County faces decision over brain-dead child's fate
LANCASTER -- County authorities are weighing a decision about whether or not to remove a brain-dead child, who is under the county's custody, from life support at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.
Fairfield County commissioners discussed the topic during their meeting on Tuesday and later confirmed they had been briefed about the situation during the past couple of weeks by Fairfield County Child Protective Services and the county prosecutor's office. It's unclear who is responsible for making the decision.
Authorities are being tight-lipped about the case.
"From what we understand the child was transported to Fairfield Medical Center and then taken to Children's Hospital, where it remains on life support," County Commissioner Jon Myers said. "Custody of the child has been turned over to JFS. From what we have been told, it is brain-dead."
The "it" the county commissioner refers to is a four month old baby boy. If he is truly brain dead, as the politician claims, his body will decompose, making the life support vote moot. There is no debate over whether or not to keep dead bodies on life support. The debate is over how disabled a person can be before society ceases to recognize them as human. I suspect this is another case of someone calling someone else "brain-dead" when in fact he is still alive with brain injuries that make the politician queasy.
