    Is there something about the word, “despicable” that gets to you, Etixos?

    As of recent you have returned and sharpened your focus only on those of us who champion pro-life. Is the timing in harmony with the campaign of the pro death gang like the Obamacidal Maniac? Even since you appeared on scene in February, your posting has been consistent in vitriol towards us. We gave the benefit of doubt that just maybe you have a conservative core hidden somewhere. But nope, it always comes back to the same thing, a nibbling away at pro-life values, with attempts to soften the bites with smooth words and even a sound of friendliness.

    I find the timing says a whole lot. At the moment, we defend against the greatest threat to the sanctity of life our country may ever have faced, and yet you offer them aid and comfort.

    You are on the wrong forum, troll.

The analysis says a pro-life group was right and that an Obama ad on the issue was misleading.

    The Obamacidal Maniac is saddened but still figures it is not too late if the moms change their minds and still want to snuff the kid. Thread by wagglebee.

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

    October 10, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Excitement continues to rise among pro-lifers across North America -- and distress among Planned Parenthood advocates -- as the number of rescued babies rises to a total of 114 throughout the 170 communities participating in the 40 Days for Life.

    David Bereit, national campaign director for the 40 DFL, writes that peaceful protesters with California's San Fernando Valley chapter of the 40 DFL had some "very encouraging news" to relate. An absent abortionist, unusually low numbers of scheduled abortions, and 40 DFL pilgrims from far and wide were mere preliminaries to the day's excitement, during which at least one woman "changed [her] mind" and left the abortuary smiling............

    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." .........

    Doctors feel our pain. But when the doctors killed Terri, I think she felt the pain more than they did...

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

    When parents' religious or cultural values prevent children from receiving necessary medical treatment, their doctors might agonize so much that they begin suffering, as well - from headaches, nightmares, feelings of worthlessness and depression.

    The condition is known as "moral distress," and it can be so severe that it degrades patient care, Micah Hester, a medical ethics expert and author of several books, told an audience of 130 medical providers Saturday.............

    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.

    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.

    This article by Bob Unruh redefines "despicable" We may remember the Obamacidal Maniac defined despicable in describing the poor woman who survived an abortion and lived to tell about it.

    Thread by kindred with thanks to wagglebee for the ping. Our own lexicon does not yet have words strong enough to describe the leftist scum. To them, indoctrination of citizens into the propaganda of the far left is a duty of the government.

    They are trying to shred our country and to a large degree are succeeding!

    A federal court decision approving mandatory public school instruction for children as young as kindergarten in how to be homosexual is being allowed to stand, drawing a description of "despicable" from the parent who unsuccessfully challenged his school district's "gay" advocacy agenda.

    The U.S. Supreme Court without comment has refused to intervene in a case prompted by the actions of officials at Estabrook Elementary school in Lexington, Mass., who not only were teaching homosexuality to young children, but specifically refused to allow Christian parents to opt their children out of the indoctrination........

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....

    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.

    The media hated us and constantly tried to show our rallies as drawing small crowds. One press jerk took to blowing into his mike a duck call as Governor Reagan approached, so it would sound like jeering. I rode once with them on the press plane and it was like being with wild animals, not people. They were different from us humans, a sub creature gaggle all to itself. If I were asked to paint my imagination of how a demon would appear, these would be my models.

    In retrospect it looked grim, but our faith was repaid. Perhaps it was Divine Intervention striking us and we had faith that the little wart with ears, Jimmuh, would be stubbed out. Likewise, today, perhaps the unexpected miracle of Sarah Palin will have the same effect against those commie vile slimy Obamunists who threaten our America.

    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....

    Is that clear? Thread by wagglebee.

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

    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....

    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!

    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.....

    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.

    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).

    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?..............

    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..........

    In my lifetime, including the JFK assassination . . . NOTHING of any significance Nationally has been investigated without their very heavy-handed and thorough control over the whole thing to the end report and press conference.

    And yes, it is about time too! One thing those bums can't control is "time". It is not their province.

    Quix, I, too, share similar perspective. I do wish to add one observation I have made up close with those guys. They would like to have pulled all the strings smoothly for many decades, but we notice they haven't quite gotten it all to work. The law of unintended consequences somehow can and does on occasion gum up their boldest and most carefully developed plans. Just maybe we are seeing some of this.

    Embark will provide consumers with a repository for patient information and advanced directive documents. "Our products are important for all adults to have," he said, adding they hope to fill the gaps that sometimes happen when consumers can't speak for themselves, citing the battle a few years ago over Terry Schiavo, who remained in a vegetative state for 15 years.......

    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...........

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

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