Eduardo Verastegui Talks about Obama, Saving Babies Outside L.A. Abortion Clinic
LifeSiteNews ^ | 10/1/08 | Anita Crane

Posted on 10/01/2008 3:56:17 PM PDT by wagglebee

Los Angeles, October 1, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Saturday, September 27, the Mexican superstar of Latin America, Eduardo Verastegui, and several of his friends joined the 40 Days for Life prayer campaign outside Family Planning Associates, an abortion business at 601 S. Westmoreland Avenue. He went there for two reasons: to help mothers and their unborn children, and warn people about the number-one abortion celebrity, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).

Verastegui is cofounder of L.A.-based Metanoia Films and lead actor in the company's first feature film, Bella (http://www.amazon.com/Bella-Eduardo-Ver%C3%A1stegui/dp/B0014...), which premiered in American movie theaters last October.

Until November 2, citizens of 179 cities in 47 of the United States and the District of Columbia are participating in 40 Days for Life (http://www.40daysforlife.com), peacefully praying outside abortion locations to end the holocaust. In the Canadian cities of Ottawa and Halifax, pro-lifers are publicly praying as well.

Armed with a rosary, Miraculous Medals and DVD copies of his latest production, Dura Realidad (Hard Truth), Verastegui and his friends approached seven women as they stood in line to enter the aforementioned abortion office.

John Anthony Hernandez, coordinator of 40 Days for Life Los Angeles, witnessed Verastegui's talent and skill. He said, "The words just seemed to flow from Eduardo and his companions who showed them the pro-life film, Dura Realidad, and directed the mothers to the LAPS [Los Angeles Pregnancy Services] center for help. He also handed everyone a Miraculous Medal and told them the beautiful story behind the medal and God's great love for us."

Verastegui told the women that he did not judge them. He said he knew they were suffering and he cared about them, but they were not alone. Verastegui warned that abortion causes sterility, and breast and uterine cancers. He said, "Now you're making that decision, so let me just share with you what they don't share with you inside. For example, I was at an abortion clinic that in the last three years more than 12 women - young ladies - have died. They don't tell you that."

Verastegui explained, "I was counting all the women lined up for an abortion. It was all Latinas and African Americans. And I said all I want to do here is to share with you a video on the hard truth about what is going on inside [that place]. And ya know what? By the grace of God, four babies were saved this morning."

At http://www.DuraRealidad.com, Verastegui appeals to his people in Spanish. He inquires, "Did you know that minority children are being aborted at more than double rate of white children?" He tells why abortionists target Hispanics. Then, introducing the segment showing abortion victims, Verastegui says, "Perhaps you question whether it is necessary to show a video like this, and my answer is the same that they give in schools about showing movies of the Nazi holocaust … [Teachers] show them because the Nazi holocaust represents a terrible evil that words alone cannot describe." In conclusion, Verastegui discusses how Barack Obama's "inhuman" policies would endanger everyone if Obama is elected president.

CNA TV provided English subtitles and posted the video on YouTube.com, minus the victims segment. Soon Verastegui will release an English-language version of this video.

He said, "Most of the registered Latinos who are voting are voting for Obama. Why is that? He doesn't represent our values: respect for life, traditional marriage or even immigration reform.

"Americans and people around the world need to know about Obama," Verastegui continued. "If he is not going to defend the most innocent, then who is he going to defend? If someone is not willing to take a risk for the most innocent, which is babies, what can I expect from that person? He will not defend me. He will not defend you. That's what inspired me to put something together.

"I want people to know the truth about Obama," said Verastegui. "And I pray to God and I don't judge anyone, but there is objective truth on this issue: It is wrong and we need to make sure that everyone knows [abortion] is not a subjective thing. It's never okay to kill an innocent person."

As Americans say, Verastegui puts his money where his mouth is. His foundation Manto de Guadalupe builds homes for the poor in Latin America, and helps mothers in crisis there and in the U.S. Verastegui is alarmed that nine abortion centers exist along just one mile of L.A., so he will open a pregnancy resource center among them.

He said, "You wanna hear something really, really funny? Here's what happened at the end. All the nurses from the clinic - some were African Americans, some were Latinas - came outside." The next thing Eduardo Verastegui knew, eight nurses wanted someone to take pictures of them with him. Instead, he gave each nurse a Miraculous Medal and his DVD. They didn't want to watch his DVD, but promised to do so simply because he requested it. He told them, "I'm going to be here next Saturday and we'll take a picture next Saturday." Then the security guard confronted him, asking, "What are you doing here?" Verastegui countered, "What are you doing here, my friend?"

After our conversation, Verastegui left for Bella premiers in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama. Bella is also scheduled for release in Brazil, Hong Kong and Spain.

On Saturday, October 4, look for Eduardo Verastegui with the Los Angeles contingent of 40 Days for Life.

CINO evil:

Another example of CINO's look like...

....................................

PITTSBURGH, October 6, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Franciscan University has emphatically disowned the views of Dr. Nicholas Cafardi, a prominent, avowedly pro-life Catholic legal scholar and Franciscan University of Steubenville trustee who recently justified supporting Obama saying, "We have lost the abortion battle." According to Cafardi, the next president of the United States would "not be able to affect abortion very much." 

Cafardi, a law professor and the former dean of the Duquesne University Law School, is considered an expert on canon law, has spent thirteen years as the general counsel for the Diocese of Pittsburgh, and three years on the board of the Canon Law Society of America. According to the InsideCatholic.com blog, Cafardi is the second high-profile Catholic jurist to endorse Obama - the first being Prof. Doug Kmiec, the former Dean and St. Thomas More Professor of The Catholic University of America's law school.

Last week, Dr. Cafardi published an editorial in the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) saying that although he is "staunchly anti-abortion," he supports pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama.  "I do not support him because he is pro-choice, but in spite of it. Is that a proper moral choice for a committed Catholic?" asked Cafardi rhetorically. 

"I answer with a resounding yes." 

The editorial argues that Cafardi's choice is justified because the "list of what the church calls 'intrinsically evil acts' does not begin and end with abortion," and Catholics have room to consider the candidates' respective policies on such issues as torture and racism. 

Cafardi said he firmly believes that "we have lost the abortion battle permanently," and since electing Sen. McCain to office could not completely eradicate abortion, voting pro-life is a lost cause.  Cafardi also stated that overturning Roe v. Wade would make no difference in the number of abortions that take place. 

Further, Dr. Cafardi claimed that "there is a difference between being pro-choice and pro-abortion," and that Obama is simply the former.  Obama "supports government action that would reduce the number of abortions," he said. 

Cafardi does not mention Obama's avowed support of the "Freedom of Choice Act," which would eliminate all legal restrictions on abortion. Instead, Cafardi cites Obama's dedication to "avoid unwanted pregnancies" as proof that he is not pro-abortion. Obama's support for contraception, however, is also considered intrinsically evil by the Catholic Church. 

"I have used my prudential judgment," wrote Cafardi, "And I conclude that it is a proper moral choice for this Catholic to support Barack Obama's candidacy."

Franciscan University of Steubenville's office of public relations released a statement soon after the publication of Cafardi's article, rejecting any affiliation with the personal views of Dr. Cafardi, who is a member of the University's Board of Trustees. 

"Franciscan University stands with the Catholic Church in its opposition to abortion as an intrinsic evil and violation of the sanctity of human life. The University does not believe the abortion battle is lost, but that the tide is decidedly turning in favor of life," wrote the University.

"In keeping with the Church's guidelines, Franciscan University does not endorse any particular political party or candidate. It does, however, strongly encourage its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other constituents to view the life issues - such as abortion, euthanasia, and the protection of marriage and the family - as foundational, and as issues that do not lend themselves to the prudential judgment of the voter." (To see Franciscan's full statement: http://insidecatholic.com/Joomla/index.php?option=com_myblog...)

Last Wednesday, Franciscan students criticized Cafardi's views when they attended a "Catholics for Obama" event at Carlow University in Pittsburgh, where the Sisters of Mercy read a paper defending Obama that Dr. Cafardi had intended to deliver. 

About fifteen sisters and three priests were at the event, and one witness told InsideCatholic.com blogger Deal Hudson that at one point a priest "urged everyone in the crowd to report any priest to the IRS and to the diocese of Pittsburgh who preaches from the pulpit that you must vote based on one issue."

After one Sister of Mercy finished reading Cafardi's paper and opened the floor to questions, several audience members openly challenged the message.  As it turned out, at least half the attendees were pro-life McCain supporters, including the thirteen Franciscan University students. 

The Inside Catholic blog related the story of one student who insisted on speaking, despite being ignored by the nun taking questions. "He insisted on asking her what she thought about Obama saying his biggest political regret was trying to save Terri Schiavo's life," reports the blog.

"The sister dismissed the question saying she didn't know what he was talking about. He responded by saying, 'Well ,sister, it certainly surprised me because I would have thought he could have used the opportunity to say that supporting infanticide in Illinois was his biggest regret.'  That clearly infuriated her, and she said that not only did Obama not support infanticide, but also that he was being brainwashed by propaganda.

"This same nun also grabbed him by the arm immediately after the talk and said very sarcastically, 'Have a nice drive back to Steubenville!'"

This Wright is right. I hope it all spills out.

Thread by wagglebee.

.....................................

Wright indicated she has heard rumblings about the possibility of Senator McCain criticizing Obama for his votes against the bills for medical care for babies who survive abortions -- which have earned him the ire of pro-life voters.

"The most obvious example that we expect to come up in Tuesday’s debate is the Born Alive Infant Protection Act," she said. "John McCain should explain in clear terms why he voted for this federal law, and Barack Obama should explain why he voted against a state law that was identical to the federal law.".........

In contrast with the CINO evil gang in today's posting upthread, we have this Bishop.

Thread by wagglebee.

......................................

SPRINGFIELD – Catholic Communications interviewed Springfield Bishop Timothy A. McDonnell recently about why Catholics are called to be pro-life. Bishop McDonnell has made the respect life issue a priority in the diocese. He said he hopes to inspire people to get involved to help save the lives of the unborn, and to reach out to mothers, fathers and families affected by the tragedy of abortion. He also emphasized there are other components to the pro-life debate...........

CINO evil redux from upthread...

Salvation finds what Catholics say about Nancy Legosi and the chia pet sidekick with BO.

......................................

In recent weeks Catholic politicians have wrongly asserted the nature and history of Catholic teaching on abortion, confusing it with philosophical theories based on pre-modern biology. In various statements Catholic bishops and theologians have refuted these claims that Catholic teaching regarding the evil of abortion has evolved (it has been the same since the first century), AND, that life's beginning depends on when ensoulment takes place (modern embryology and genetics knows exactly when every human life begins, at conception). Below are statements and resources on this controversy, so that Catholics are not deceived about Catholic teaching on abortion, or, when human life begins....

What liberals hate...

We have gone through that emotion with our own son and with people who glared at us in unbridled disgust that we had not killed him at birth. It has the interesting effect of unmasking the dark side of people who otherwise would pass unnoticed as friends or at least not adversaries. Sarah Palin will continue to unmask these closet dark emotions as little Trig grows, regardless of the outcome of this election. God bless this woman and little Trig who is unmasking the evil left and left simply by being.

Thread by wagglebee.

......................................

The facts are daunting. It is now estimated that between 80 and 90 percent of all unborn babies diagnosed as likely to have Down syndrome are aborted. The availability of prenatal testing presents parents with the possibility of aborting the baby and starting over. The statistics now speak for themselves - the vast majority of parents are choosing to abort under these circumstances.

But the visible presence of Trig Palin in the arms of his parents or one of his sisters is resetting that equation, at least in terms of the public's emotions. The sight of little Piper Palin licking her hand and flattening Trig's hair during their mom's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention is likely to stick in the public mind years after Trig's hair is again unstuck. It's hard for even the most ardent abortion defenders to insert an argument against Trig's precious life at that point. Or, at least we would think so...........

Thread by wagglebee.

.....................................

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading pro-life group says Barack Obama is flip-flopping on abortion -- not by changing his position but by changing his approach to talking about it. National Right to Life says Obama and his campaign touted his pro-abortion record in the primaries and now is running from it as the election draws near.

Douglas Johnson, longtime legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, tells LifeNews.com that the Obama campaign and its allies have adopted a strategy to mislead pro-life voters about his extensive pro-abortion record.

"The scam depends on the Obama campaign, with cooperation from the mainstream news media, deflecting attention away from Obama's actual record, and from his extensive commitments to pro-abortion interest groups," Johnson said.............

Biden time in a thread by Salvation.

Thanks, narses, for the ping. Where the media enjoys the love-in with the Obamunist and the chia pet with BO, perhaps the Catholic Church can open many eyes and cast off some hoodwinks and see this merchant of death team for what it is.

...................................

Responding to a question from Meet the Press Moderator Tom Brokaw, Biden stated that he agreed with the Catholic Church that life begins at conception. He then continued, "I'm prepared as a matter of faith to accept that life begins at the moment of conception. But that is my judgment. For me to impose that judgment on everyone else who is equally and maybe even more devout than I am seems to me is inappropriate in a pluralistic society."

Biden also later appeared to contradict himself, saying throughout Church history there has been "debate" on when life begins, implying that life may not begin at conception after all...........

Eluana Englaro update...

But now they have to find a doctor willing to kill her...

...............................................

ROME (AFP) — Italy's Constitutional Court rejected an appeal lodged by parliament against a ruling to let doctors stop feeding a woman who has been in a coma for 16 years, media reported Thursday.

Eluana Englaro, 36, has been receiving food and water artificially since January 1992 in a hospital in northern Lecco and her father has been seeking an end to the life support since 1999.

The Roman Catholic Church has however made Englaro a symbol in its campaign against mercy killings and has demanded that she be kept alive.

In July, a Milan appeal court ruled the young woman, who has been in a vegetative state since a road accident, could be removed from life support as it had been proven that her coma was irreversible.

It said that Englaro, when fully conscious, had stated her preference to die rather than being kept alive artificially.

However, Milan prosecutor Maria Antonietta Pezza asked the Supreme Court to strike down the July 9 appeal court ruling. A final decision on that is expected on November 11.

Pezza's intervention meant that hospital staff caring for Englaro could not stop the treatment that has been keeping her alive.

Italy's lower parliamentary chamber debated the case after the July 9 appeal court ruling, with members of the Chamber of Deputies deciding to raise the issue with the Constitutional Court, the country's highest court.

Most deputies argued the appeal court judges had exceeded their authority in their ruling. But the Constitutional Court said the appeal judges had acted within their rights, while noting that parliament has the ability to change the law if it wishes..........

Is this guy talking about the same Charlie we know? Have any strange lightning bolts struck in Florida? Or could this be an indication a Charlie weather vane is now indicating a strong wind in our favor?

..................................

Gov. Charlie Crist has proved he is enamored of the radical right. His recent appointment of two right-wing ideologues to the Florida Supreme Court are dead wrong for blind justice, the court of last resort in the state and every man, woman and child here — and for generations to come.

He has now willingly turned himself into Florida's version of President Bush, having given us the equivalent of U.S. Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito — and for the same crass, self-serving purposes.

~Snip~

Will Florida families let the governor pack the Supreme Court with justices who may give us other Terri Schiavo fiascos with a different outcome, taking away their right to make their health and end-of-life decisions?..............

Science shows an amazing grasp of the obvious...

........................................

Most of the time, doctors have a simple way to determine if a patient needs pain medication: They ask. But when a brain injury renders someone unable to respond to questions, the right course of action becomes murkier. Now a study finds that the brains of some patients with brain injuries respond to an unpleasant electrical shock much as do the brains of healthy people, suggesting that these patients may feel pain even though they're unable to show it.

~Snip~

The findings are an important contribution to an understudied area, says Nicholas Schiff, a neurologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Minimally conscious patients can't talk or even wince to let doctors know they're in pain, Schiff notes: "There's nothing to guide you without this kind of data." Even so, Schiff says, researchers need to study a larger sample of patients before making specific guidelines for pain medications.

Picture of Terry Schiavo

Altered perceptions? Minimally conscious patients may have a greater capacity to feel pain than do those in a vegetative state (such as Terri Schiavo, above).

I don't recall signing on to the Republican Party thinking its core values having a RINOplasty and included killing innocent and helpless people. But I guess John Danforth had...

....................................

Former Sen. John Danforth wants the Republican Party to get back to its "good, old" traditions: lower taxes and less government.

Speaking at a Republican Leadership Council on Thursday night, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said the political arm of religion has divided the country and led the party away from its core principles.

In 1976, Danforth, an ordained Episcopal minister, was elected to the U.S. Senate for Missouri. In 2001, he was named special peace envoy to Sudan and, in 2004, became U.S. ambassador to the United Nations before resigning five months later.

After witnessing the Republican-controlled federal government intervene in Terri Schiavo's death, Danforth said, he saw the need for his party to get away from defining itself by social issues.

"After the federal government was getting into (Schiavo's case), I thought, 'This was not the party I signed-on for,'" Danforth said.....

Please check out this thread by Sun!

.......................................

Senator Charles Schumer says he feels confident that the Dems will have a super majority - 60 senators - after this election. Let's not allow this to happen! A super majority can stop any judicial picks by John McCain, and IF (horrors) Barack Obama becomes president, his judicial picks would breeze right through.

As an example, I just heard a tape on the radio where Senator McCain said that Justice Thomas was a good pick, and Senator Obama said he would not have picked him.

Please support the Republicans in the senate race, even if they are not from your state. Maybe you can do some research and pick a candidate(s) who will be in the senate race who is your favorite, and help them out by calling a national talk show (or a local talk show if it's your state), contributing to their campaign, writing a letter to the editor, and/or volunteering for their campaign, etc..

Do what you can to help out, but kindly do something. IMO, the judicial nominations is the most important issue of all, because it affects all of the other issues, like pro-life, the sanctity of marriage, so-called "Fairness" doctrine, terrorism, 2nd Amendment, immigration, eminent domain - everything. Activist judges do what they please, so getting originalist judges on the bench is paramount. I ask FRiends to tell us which candidate(s) you like, and why, which would be useful for calling a talk show.

In this presidential race, let's not forget GOP candidates for Congress, particularly the Senate!

OTTAWA, October 8, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper went on a verbal rampage against the right to life of unborn children last week, promising not only that a Conservative government would not open the abortion issue, but that it would prevent anyone else from raising it.

Asked by a reporter if Harper could give assurances to pro-abortion groups, who are accusing the Conservatives of engineering a stealth pro-life campaign, Harper said that he could. "The answer is yes. This government will not open, will not permit anyone to open the abortion debate. Our position is clear," he said, speaking in French....

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The issue of judicial picks is important for the pro-life community because the next set of Supreme Court judges will likely determine whether America has another 35 years of 50 million abortions. Yet, the issue hasn't received near the national attention it normally does in a presidential election year.

Mario Diaz, the policy director for legal issues for the pro-life group Concerned Women for America, says he is surprised a comment Biden made during the vice-presidential debate hasn't received more attention.

Asked to name a policy issue on which he changed his mind, Biden said he determined five years into his Senate tenure that he should start evaluating the ideology of judicial appointments.

"It took about five years for me to realize that the ideology of that judge makes a big difference," he said....

I picked up my McCain-Palin yard sign today. There was a nice poster of Sarah Palin in the HQ. Since I'm an indy and cuz that RNC HQ helped bump off Terri, I didn't stick around to volunteer. At least I have my yard sign. The judges who killed Terri will have their judgment day by the real judge (Fr. Pavone).

Charlie Crist wants to be re-elected so he's going to choose conservative judges. He still let Terri die and I'm glad McCain didn't choose him for VP pick.

In case it was missed or misunderstood earlier, Italian court says she can be thrown to the lions...

............................................


Photo source or description
[JURIST] Italy's Constitutional Court [official website, in Italian] has rejected [decision text, in Italian] a parliamentary challenge to a Milan appeals court decision holding that doctors can remove the feeding tube of Eluana Englaro [materials, in Italian], a young woman who has been in a vegetative state for 16 years. In a decision issued Wednesday the court specified the interruption of treatment can only be used where "the condition of vegetative state is irreversible and there is no medical basis, according to internationally recognized standards, to suggest the person has the slightest chance of recovery." AFP has more. La Repubblica has local coverage.

Eluana Englaro, had been in a coma since an automobile accident in 1992. Her father, Beppino Englaro, has been trying to get her feeding tube removed since 1999. In 2005, the Constitutional Court upheld a lower court's ruling to keep her feeding tube in place [Reuters report], because they could find no specific evidence on Englaro's view of life and death.

PORTLAND, Oregon, October 10, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Oregon Court of Appeals on Wednesday denied a father's appeal to keep his six frozen embryos alive, and ordered that the embryos be destroyed by thawing, as ordered by his ex-wife. The court also ruled that the embryos' fate fell under the issue of "property rights."

The court unanimously agreed that the father, orthodontist Dr. Darrell Angle, had no right to "impose a genetic parental relationship" on his ex-wife, pediatrician Dr. Laura Dahl, who did not wish to be considered the mother of the preborn children in the event that they were carried to term. Angle, on the other hand, insisted that the embryos were alive and deserved to be protected from destruction....

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With debate moderators not asking any questions of the candidates on abortion, pro-life advocates have been hoping John McCain and Sarah Palin would criticize Barack Obama's pro-abortion record. In a national radio interview on Thursday, Palin did just that and called Obama's record "atrocious."

During an interview with nationally syndicated radio talk show host Laura Ingraham, Palin described Obama's view that abortions should be legal for any reason throughout pregnancy “absolutely atrocious."........

Haleigh Poutre update...

The Massachusetts Department of Social Services, now with a new name and an old M.O. tried at the beginning to kill Haleigh, and almost did. Perhaps it was to harvest spare parts, and perhaps it was to make a stronger case against her assailant, nevertheless, they tried and almost succeeded.

Not to learn their lesson, stubbornly they cling to the child as if she were their very personal property, and doing so, exceed the bounds of reason. That is how entrenched is their dark resolve even in the brunt of public exposure. Without explanation, they even refuse her natural birth mom even a glimpse at Haleigh. What is going on? We are grateful the mom has a high profile attorney like Wendy Murphy to help her.

..........................................

You see Allison Avrett meeting her two regular children, aged 7 and 8, at the school bus stop. You see her walk them to a well-kept home with Halloween decorations out front. You see her watch one child coloring at the kitchen table, then pose for pictures, everybody acting like regular families do.

Now, Allison Avrett may, in fact, be a person so horrible as to deserve her fate: first losing her eldest child to the state, then being banished even from visiting that sick child in the hospital.

But if so, the State Department of Social Services, renamed the Department of Families and Children, has not revealed documents that say so. Nor has it given Avrett a reason for severing all relations between her and that child, well known as Haleigh Poutre, 14.

Pardon my cynicism. But here’s betting that if there is a reason, we’d know it.

Most of us know Haleigh’s wrenching tale. At age 4, the department took her - wrongly, as is now apparent - from Avrett, then placed her, wrongly, with an aunt who nearly beat her to death. Then the department, wrong again, went to court to remove Haleigh from life support, reneging after doctors reported she was breathing on her own.

Avrett has long maintained she was among the first, if not the first, to notice her child’s eyes following her about her hospital room. That was when the department still let Avrett visit Haleigh. But they stopped her visits more than two years ago. The department will not say why, citing Avrett’s pending suit arguing that Haleigh was wrongly taken in the first place.

Were there no pending suit, the department would still refuse to comment. This is how it operates: hiding behind court orders and child privacy claims when typically the point is protecting itself.

And nobody seems bothered, even in this outrageous case, when the department bungled to the point of Haleigh’s death, then has the gall to blacklist a mother without producing a shred of evidence.

Pardon my cynicism. But here’s betting none of this is about helping Haleigh. It’s about a longstanding department mindset that says, ‘we do what we want because we can, no accountability.’ It’s about what’s neater and less legally risky. Haleigh’s stepfather’s trial is pending. Plus Wendy Murphy, a relentless, media-savvy lawyer, represents Avrett. That surely worries department bureaucrats: What if Murphy doesn’t give up?

You ask Allison Avrett how she copes? “Day by day,” she says. “I have two other kids who need me. But yes, I would love to see Haleigh.” If she is eventually free for adoption, “I’d love to have her, me or someone from the family.”

Avrett is not perfect. She gave birth to Haleigh at 17. Her boyfriend took off. She struggled. For a while, she concedes, she was not a good mother. That was 10 years and two more children ago, more than half of Haleigh’s lifetime.

I apologize if I think this occurance is just a bit too convenient. The courts and her father have agreed that she must be put to death, but the doctors and facilities had refused to snuff her. So now, this, at a peculiar time...

........................................

This undated file photo released from family shows Eluana Englaro, who fell into a vegetative state following a car accident in 1992. Two years later, doctors called her condition irreversible. The condition of Englaro at the center of a right-to-die case has worsened after she suffered a massive hemorrhage, doctors said Saturday, Oct. 11, 2008. Englaro has been in a vegetative state for 16 years and her father has led a protracted court battle to disconnect her feeding tube, insisting it was her wish. (AP Photo/Englaro family, HO, File)

ROME (AP) — The condition of an Italian woman at the center of a right-to-die case worsened after she suffered a massive hemorrhage, doctors said Saturday.

Eluana Englaro has been in a vegetative state for 16 years and her father has led a protracted court battle to disconnect her feeding tube, insisting it was her wish.

This summer a Milan court granted his request, setting off a political storm in this overwhelmingly Roman Catholic country. Italy does not allow euthanasia, but patients have a right to refuse treatment.

Catholic and anti-euthanasia groups protested the ruling by leaving bottles of water in front of Milan's Duomo cathedral. Prosecutors appealed the decision and the father pledged not to disconnect the tube before Italy's high court weighed in.

Carlo Alberto Defanti, Englaro's doctor, told reporters gathered Saturday at a clinic in northern Italy that over the last two days Englaro had been bleeding from her uterus.

"It was a very abundant hemorrhage, which puts her life at risk," he said. "This afternoon it stopped. We can't make predications; if it doesn't restart she may recover."

Italian news reports said doctors had agreed not to give Englaro a blood transfusion.

Englaro was 20 years old when she fell into a vegetative state following a car accident in 1992. Two years later, doctors called her condition irreversible.

Her father, Beppino Englaro, has said she had visited a friend who was in a similar condition shortly before her accident and had expressed the will to refuse treatment if in the same situation.

The case has drawn comparisons here with that of Terry Schiavo, the American woman who was at the center of a right-to-die debate until her death in 2005. Schiavo's husband, who wanted her feeding tube removed against her parents' wishes, prevailed in a polarizing battle in the United States that reached Congress, President Bush and the Supreme Court.

The Obamacidal Maniac is much better at knowing when our right to live ends.

Thread by wagglebee.

....................................

The question of when our rights begin has always brought us back to the fundamental question of when life begins. This is because we operate under the assumption that since "all men are created equal," if you are a person, you have rights.

Even Justice Blackmun, author of the Roe v. Wade decision, which created a woman's "constitutional right" to an abortion, recognized that this was the essential question: Is the child in the womb a person? He and the other justices who voted with him in Roe ultimately decided that the fetus was not a person, while still recognizing the "vigorous opposing views, even among physicians." But he wrote, "[i]f this suggestion of personhood is established, [Roe's] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [Fourteenth] Amendment." .........
