But first is it fair to state we conservatives have a virtual monopoly on good looks? I say, yes! Day Gardner is former Miss Delaware and a beauty like Sarah Palin. The leftists have to settle for winners of Halloween contests.
Day Gardner is a wonderful advocate for life, has taken a stand for Lauren Richardson. Meanwhile as we await news of Lauren, we can take solice that no news is not bad news, except for the suboptimum care she is likely receiving while waiting. Thread by wagglebee.
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading African-American pro-life advocate says presidential candidate Barack Obama continues to mislead the public about his votes on an abortion-infanticide bill. Obama has been tagged over the bill all election, and it involves making sure infants who survive abortions get proper medical care.
Obama voted four times against the bill during his tenure in the Illinois legislature and was the only member of the body to speak against it on the floor.
The issue has been involved in back-and-forth television ads, with a woman who survived a failed abortion saying Obama's votes targeted her and Obama's campaign responding, calling the woman and McCain, "sleazy, despicable liars."
On Monday, Day Gardner, president of The National Black Pro-Life Union, told LifeNews.com that Obama's comments about why he voted against the bill don't square up with the facts.........
Denver, CO (LifeNews.com) -- The Denver Post came out against Amendment 48 with an editorial on Monday that challenges the personhood amendment. However, the newspaper gets its facts wrong when it attempts to make the case that scientists say human life begins at implantation, rather than conception.
The amendment would define the beginning of human life as the point of conception and have potential ramifications for abortion and embryonic stem cell research.
"Medical and scientific experts set the start of pregnancy at the point a fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterus," the paper contends.
However, that's not the case.
Dr. Jerome Lejeune, an internationally-known geneticist credited with discovering the cause of Down syndrome, told the U.S. Senate in 1981 that scientists agree human life begins at conception.
"Modern biology teaches us that ancestors are united to their progeny by a continuous material link, for it is from the fertilization of the female cell (the ovum) by the male cell (the spermatozoa) that a new member of the species will emerge," he said.
"Life has a very, very long history but each individual has a very neat beginning: the moment of its conception," the famed scientist added.
Dr. Hymie Gordon, the former chairman of the Department of Genetics at the Mayo Clinic, agrees, and says, "By all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception."
However, I haven't heard a word. I requested bumper stickers. If they are anti-Terri's Fight after all, that would be bad. The lady was probably a Bushbot and didn't like that I said either Bush brother could have pardoned her. Man, Bushbots hold long grudges.
