    If Steve Jobs' "Oh, wow... oh WOW!" wasn't enough for you... Now we've got another sane, intelligent, sensible, only vaguely religious person giving us a peek of life on the other side... and boy is she ever convincing:_______________________________________________________________________ I felt no pain... I was struggling (drowning in a kayak)... at that point, I really did give-up my spirit over to God. I immediately experienced complete and absolute peace... calm... I had no pain, I felt great. And I was being held, and comforted, and re-assured as then my body was sucked-out of the boat (into the water) and my spirit peeled-away from...

    The Chinese dissident at the centre of a diplomatic storm has told the ABC he now believes he and his family are in danger in China and he wants the United States government to get him out of the country. That's despite a deal between Beijing and Washington under which he left the US embassy in Beijing last night in return for guarantees of his safety. But Chen Guangcheng, who's in hospital in Beijing, says he now knows more about the danger he faces in China.

  • How Babies Were Left to Die: Nurse Recounts Horrors of Infanticide Practice Barack Obama Protected

    August 12, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - At the same time that the National Right to Life Committee has unearthed documents proving that Barack Obama repeatedly voted against a bill that would have protected children born alive after an attempted abortion, Illuminati Pictures has released a video of an interview with a nurse who witnessed the very practice that Obama protected while in the Illinois senate (See: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/aug/08081101.html  ). Jill Stanek was a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois in 1999 when she discovered that babies born alive after failed abortions purposely were being left to die in the "soiled...

    ...boy recovers completely Although a team of four physicians insisted that his son was “brain-dead” following the wreck, Thorpe’s father enlisted the help of a general practitioner and a neurologist, who demonstrated that his son still had brain wave activity. The doctors agreed to bring him out of the coma, and five weeks later Thorpe left the hospital, having almost completely recovered.

    In its Declaration on Euthanasia issued on May 5, 1980, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith had this to say: "Human life is the basis of all goods, and is the necessary source and condition of every human activity and of all society. Most people regard life as something sacred and hold that no one may dispose of it at will, but believers see in life something greater, namely, a gift of God's love, which they are called upon to preserve and make fruitful. And it is this latter consideration that gives rise to the following consequences:...

    Lately, with Trayvon Martin’s death serving as a focal point for anti-gunners, Stand Your Ground laws have come under attack from every corner. Gun-grabbers of all stripes have voiced their outrage over the people’s right to bear the arms they keep, and to actually use those arms to defend their own lives. And while what happened that fateful night between Martin and George Zimmerman is being examined in a court of law — as it should be — the justification for Stand Your Ground laws will not stand or fall with the judge’s decision: rather, the justification for such laws...

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | April 19, 2012 | Diane C. Lade and Dana Williams
    Black men in South Florida have made tremendous strides in longevity, according to new estimates released Thursday. Those born in 2009 could expect to live 7 years longer than those born two decades earlier. But researchers with the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation — who calculated lifespans in every U.S. county in 1989, 1999 and 2009 — also said there was troubling news. The numbers show women's lifespan gains have slowed to a crawl nationwide. Also, how long one might live varies hugely among counties in the same state, hinting at differences in healthcare access.
  • Abortion: Ayn Rand Lexicon

    04/15/2012 1:35:51 PM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 22 replies
    An embryo has no rights. Rights do not pertain to a potential, only to an actual being. A child cannot acquire any rights until it is born. The living take precedence over the not-yet-living (or the unborn). Abortion is a moral right—which should be left to the sole discretion of the woman involved; morally, nothing other than her wish in the matter is to be considered. Who can conceivably have the right to dictate to her what disposition she is to make of the functions of her own body?

    Most people in the US, especially Democrats, believe that the Obama Birther Movement was started by Republicans and or the Tea Party. They believe it is a smear campaign aimed to tarnish the image of their hero of change. But they may be shocked to learn that the Birther Movement was actually started by former President Bill Clinton and Hillary back in 2008. Bettina Viviano was a vice president with Amblin Enterntainment, Steven Spielberg’s company, before launching her own film production company in 1990. In 2008, Viviano was asked to produce a documentary about voter fraud within the Democratic Party....

    Journal of Medical Ethics (yes, believe it or not) ^ | February 23, 2012 | Alberto Giubilini, Francesca Minerva
    Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus' health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

    NASHVILLE, March 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The widely praised, life-affirming movie ‘October Baby’ premiers in select theatres across the U.S. on Friday, March 23. The producers explain that October Baby shines a light on a real but little-known topic: survivors of attempted abortions. Survivors themselves say that there are thousands of individuals who have survived attempted abortions, although their fate is a seldom-tracked statistic. Many of these survivors have grown up to speak out on life-related issues. “There are more of us than what most people realize,” said Gianna Jessen, an abortion survivor who speaks nationally on the subject....

    National Review ^ | 03/07/2012 | Daniel Pipes
    ‘Once mellowed and moldering, the far-flung civilization of the Arabs is being swept today by invigorating winds of change. A fruitful kind of disorder is replacing the old fixed patterns of life.” Those contemporary-sounding words were published in 1962, in a glossy, picture-laden, 160-page book titled The Arab World. The volume boasts three virtues that make it worth a review a precise half-century later. First, the editors of Life magazine, then the outstanding American weekly, produced it, implying cultural centrality. Second, a retired senior State Department official, George V. Allen, wrote the introduction, pointing to the book’s establishment credentials. Third,...
