    The Democrats claimed that the Mexican violence was due to US guns. Then the statistics showed very few crimes were committed by US guns, SO the administration decided they wanted to change that. By Fast and Furious selling guns to the gangs, they could blame America and institute gun control laws.

    I work at a crisis pregnancy clinic and we had a pregnant 15 year old girl that was told by Planned Parenthood that her period "was clogged" and if she took these pills her period would start again. The pills were RU486, the abortion pill.

    An ultrasound at our clinic showed she was almost 7 weeks and the baby had a heartbeat. She wants to carry and choose adoption, but everyone around her is pushing abortion. Poor girl.

    They accuse our clinics of lying to girls, but telling a girl it is a "clogged period" is a HUGE lie.

    Yes, the pill is 98-99% effective, the condom only about 80% effective IF used correctly. Unfortunately, young adults don't take the pill every day at the same time, so it is less effective. As for condoms, they break, they may not be used every time, and often men put them on after they have released pre-ejaculate fluid that contains sperm.

    At our Crisis Pregnancy Clinic, we have a lot of clients on the pill that get pregnant and even more that use condoms. That's why teaching "safe sex" is not effective.

I do not understand why any one (ie Liberals) want to ruin our health care system. Yes, there are some problems, but I want to have options, not lines and LONG waits.

    Your mother will be in a wonderful place since she knows the Lord. My prayers are for you, her husband and the family. You are the ones that need the prayers because she can't be replaced. Remember the things she taught you and all the great experiences. That will help you in your grief.

    My mother died 3 years ago and I cried every night for a long time (3-4 minths). I didn't cry for her, because she was in heaven, I cried because I missed having her in my life. I imagine it will be the same for you.

    Spend as much time with your Dad this next year. He will need your support. After many years, it's hard for a man to have the empty house at night. It is important to share with him your memories. It is important to allow him to talk about her, even though it it painful for you. I share your grief, but you will see her in heaven. Live the life she would have wanted you to live. Make her proud.

  • Abortion and the politics of ultrasound

    Angel to JohnHuang2
    I perform ultrasounds at a Crisis Pregnancy Clinic and it is powerful. Unfortunately only about 30% of the abortion minded women at our clinic decide to carry their pregnancy.

    Besides the ultrasound, we have maternity homes, parenting classes and lots of resources for the women. Often informing them about the help available will show them that they can carry and be successful.

    Since about 15 - 20% of pregnancies end in a miscarriage, we can save woman a lot of pain if their pregnancy wasn't viable anyway.

  • 1 Woman at a Time (ultrasound reducing abortions)

    Angel to NYer
    I do ultrasounds at a crisis pregnancy clinic in Orange County California. It is a very powerful tool to let the woman see the baby.

    One area the article is misleading is the medical necessity for the ultrasound. We make sure the pregnancy is in the uterus, an ectopic pregnancy is a life threatening condition. We can date the pregnancy to see how far along they are and most importantly we confirm that it is a viable pregnancy if there is a heartbeat. 15% -20% pregnancies end in miscarriage.

    I've had several woman come in planning to abort, but it wasn't a viable pregnancy and they miscarried. I was so glad they didn't go through the trauma of the abortion.

    As for pressuring or judging woman, at our clinic that is not true. Most of our clients that still decide to abort bring their pregnant friends because they know we can help. We are often told how warm and caring we are, not like Planned Parenthood.

    Our clinic also has 3 maternity homes, a thrift shop where girls can get vouchers for maternity clothes, car seats, etc. We also offer free parenting classes where by coming they earn new baby clothes and diapers.

    As the article says, we are saving one woman at a time.

    This is scary stuff."Another beautiful moment of the Savior's appearance is the coming down of Prophet Jesus (PBUH) from heaven," says the report. "Hazrat Mahdi receives him courteously and asks him to lead the prayers. But Jesus says you are more qualified for this than me. We read in the book Tazkarat ol-Olia, 'the Mahdi will come with Jesus son of Mary accompanying him.' This indicates that these two great men are (sic) complement each other. Imam Mahdi will be the leader while Prophet Jesus will act as his lieutenant in the struggle against oppression and establishment of justice in the world. Jesus had himself given the tidings of the coming of God's last messenger and will see Mohammad's ideals materialize in the time of the Mahdi."

    If he gets a nuclear bomb and really believes this stuff, we are all in trouble.

    I work at a pro-life crisis pregnancy clinic in OC California. We do see what this article describes, but there are even more young girls who are pregnant. What is most discouraging is how many of the mothers who "make" their daughters have abortions because it will "ruin their life".

    We do free ultrasounds and have been able to show the woman that they are carrying babies and many have decided to carry instead of abort. It's been very rewarding.

    Angel
    I find this interestin The biggest change is that moderates and liberals have begun to accept that they cannot simply adjust to conservative dominance of the political debate and alter their ideas to fit the current consensus. As Michael Tomasky writes in the current issue of The American Prospect, Democrats and their allies must destroy the current political ``paradigm'' based on ``radical individualism'' and replace it with a politics of the ``common good.'' Only a larger argument rooted in a different conception of government and society, Tomasky argues, will allow the party to ``do a lot more than squeak by in this fall's (or any) elections based on the usual unsatisfying admixture of compromises.''

    In describing his common-good approach, Tomasky notes it has significant implications in challenging Democrats to stand for more than ``diversity and rights,'' however valuable these commitments might be. Both diversity and rights, he argues, would be better defended in a common-good framework. .

    Common good sounds like communision or socialism to me. What do you think?

    Wow, I feel very ininformed. I assumed all Executive Orders were open and available, so I did some research. You are right and I found the following article.

    Dismantling Clinton's Scaffold of Executive Orders Miguel A. Faria Jr., M.D. Monday, Jan. 29, 2001 Immediately after taking the oath of office, President George W. Bush issued four executive memoranda. One of them established a 60-day freeze on the regulations hastily issued by President Bill Clinton before leaving office. The freeze on administrative rules and regulations needs to be extended and converted into a veritable machine of executive repeals not only of regulations but also of actual executive orders.

    Normally, executive orders are published in the Federal Register, and, if Congress does not challenge them, they become administrative laws. Some 50,000 pages of such administrative decrees have been published annually in this Register during the Clinton years. Most of them were not challenged and became de facto federal mandates.

    The Clinton administration not only increased the number of them, but also abused this prerogative intended to assist the Executive Branch of government in implementing the laws passed by Congress. Under President Clinton, more than any other president, the Executive arrogated to itself, in effect, congressional lawmaking powers.

    By mid-December 2000, President Clinton had issued 347 executive orders, which have far-reaching consequences. Among these, journalist Cliff Kincaid noted, there were 80 classified Presidential Decision Directives (PDDs) mandating secret, unilateral executive actions that impact on the freedom of Americans.

    President Clinton, in fact, added a new dimension to these secret PDDs, which are not published anywhere � not even Congress is privy to them. One of them, PDD-25, assigned U.S. troops to serve under foreign U.N. commanders; another one established that U.N. treaties supersede the laws of the United States. In yet another secret order, the details of which are not known because they have not been made public, U.N. personnel are protected from civil or criminal prosecution for violation of U.S. laws while operating on U.S. soil. The Clinton administration supported the U.N. notion of an International Criminal Court (ICC), a tribunal that could potentially prosecute Americans for alleged war crimes and other crimes committed while serving as "peacekeepers" in U.N. missions in faraway lands. It is repugnant to many sensible Americans that at the same time that an administration has favored such a sovereignty-eroding policy, it passed executive orders exempting U.N. personnel, many of them Third World thugs, from U.S. laws and American justice.(1)

    While President Clinton was impeached for perjury and abuse of power in the cases of Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones, the more serious charge of abuse of power in the issuance of secret, unconstitutional PDDs intended to bypass congressional approval is yet to be elucidated for the American people. Former Clinton adviser Paul Begala, in a candid moment, summarized this process of lawmaking as "stroke of the pen, law of the land, kind of cool!"

    What exactly is included in some lesser known, secret PDDs and executive orders? It's still difficult to ascertain the content of some of these privileged executive orders because they remain secret. Congress, for example, does not, to this date, have a copy of PDD-25, which Clinton signed in 1994. Yet this order was also used to authorize the U.N. to use American troops in U.N. operations. Moreover, on the basis of PDD-25, U.S. Army Specialist Michael New was court-martialed and discharged for refusing to wear a U.N. uniform on a U.N. mission.(2)

    President Clinton used executive orders, PDDs, and "executive determinations" to decree what Congress refused to authorize via legislation. For example, PDDs were used to impose a new "sexual orientation" classification in the military, as well as to allow the Clinton administration to bomb and wage war on Yugoslavia (i.e., executive orders 13119, 13120, 12846, 12934, etc.) without having Congress declare war, as required by the Constitution. What all of these executive orders do is to usurp power by the Executive Branch of government at the expense of Congress, erode the liberties of the American people, and adversely tilt the balance of power imposed by the U.S. Constitution.

    PDD-62, issued on the pretext of fighting terrorism, grants the FBI the power to maintain surveillance on Second Amendment groups and civic organizations opposed to the U.N., as well as "extremist" Christian fundamentalist groups.

    PDD-63, supposedly signed to prevent unauthorized access to government computers, instead allows executive agencies to spy on the electronic communications of private citizens using the Internet.

    Executive Order 13107, issued on December 4, 2000, sets aside 84 million acres in the Pacific Ocean, the largest protected area in the U.S. territories, preventing fishing (i.e., commercial and recreational) and the much-needed oil drilling that can be carried out in this largely desolate area.

    A different topic, but applies to today. Similar executive orders have designated national monuments in the Alaskan Wilderness Refuge and vast tracts of land in the West, including Wyoming, where private citizens have protested to no avail. With Executive Orders 13087 and 13132, President Clinton attempted to revoke our revered system of federalism and infringe on the 10th Amendment, which prevents the federal government from arrogating powers from the states granted to them by our Founding Fathers in the U.S. Constitution.

    Our new president needs to bring to light these usurpations of power by the previous administration, and the offending PDDs and executive orders, frankly, should be immediately rescinded.

    No president, Democrat or Republican, should wield such extra-constitutional power.

    In particular, all of the inimical and impolitic U.N. orders that erode the sovereignty of these United States should be fully investigated, and all of those not in accord with our Constitution immediately abrogated. Call it a new campaign to correct the record and educate Americans on the constitutional limits of government, a Republican form of government exercised with the consent of the governed.

    President George W. Bush needs to cancel all of the executive measures that were instituted specifically to circumvent the will of Congress. It was the U.S. Congress, after all, in which our Founding Fathers laid the legislative power of our constitutional government. It was, in fact, because Congress would not approve these measures injurious to the civil liberties of citizens that President Clinton, while smiling to the cameras of CNN and displaying his usual gregarious side to the American people, later manifested the other darker side of his nature and went ahead, nevertheless, and signed these deleterious measures.

    President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Attorney General John Ashcroft, as soon as he is confirmed, have to move rapidly toward rescission of these harmful decrees. They have a lot of work ahead of them. Due diligence and exertion of this labor is necessary and fundamental in dismantling the tyrannical scaffold left behind by the previous administration, if we are to restore this nation to its former constitutional integrity.
