  • Abortion provision stays in health bill

    03/12/2010 5:28:41 AM PST · by freespirited · 17 replies · 619+ views
    House leaders have concluded they cannot change a divisive abortion provision in President Obama's health-care bill and will try to pass the sweeping legislation without the support of ardent anti-abortion Democrats. The approach would skirt a major obstacle for Democratic leaders in the final throes of a yearlong effort to change health care in the United States. But it sets up a risky strategy of trying to round up enough Democrats to overcome, not appease, a small but possibly decisive group of Democratic lawmakers in the House. Democratic leaders are working to rally rank-and-file members around agreements on several complicated...

    NEW YORK, February 26, 2010 ( - Following a period of relative silence since his installation last year, New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan eagerly took an opportunity to set forth Church teaching on controversial points, including the forbidding of public honors for pro-abortion politicians, in a recent interview with NY1.  The bishop also asserted that his outspokenness on such issues was simply part of his job as shepherd and teacher of the faith.When NY1 News reporter Roma Torre asked whether a pro-abortion Catholic should be invited to a "Catholic event" such as the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, Dolan's...

    Pro-Abortion Democrats Renew Threat: No Health Care Bill With Stupak Amendmentby Steven Ertelt Editor February 24, 2010 Washington, DC ( -- As the next chapter of the debate over the pro-abortion health care bill begins, pro-abortion House Democrats are renewing their pledge not to support any bill with the Stupak amendment. That's the amendment originally added to the House bill that ban all abortion funding. The Senate did not attach the Stupak amendment to its version of the government-run health care bill and, instead included massive abortion funding and other pro-abortion problems. With the reconciliation push on for the...

    WASHINGTON, DC, February 22, 2010 ( - A new health care bill proposed by President Obama Monday threatens to expand abortion even more drastically than the health care bills stymied in Congress over the past several months, says the National Right to Life Committee.The White House is threatening to ram the proposal through the Senate on a 51-vote majority using a tactic known as budget reconciliation.  The process circumvents the need for a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority by placing the health care overhaul under the heading of a "budget" bill."Any member of Congress who votes for the final legislation proposed by...

    Dear xxxxxx, As you know, Planned Parenthood has been all over the news recently. On Monday, anti-choice members of the House of Delegates amended HB1108, the 'Trust Women, Respect Choice' license plate bill to redirect the funds generated from the sale of the plate to a different organization! This unprecedented and discriminatory action has sparked media coverage, free speech debate, and outrage. Click here to read about the actions of Del. Todd Gilbert and company. Then, to add insult to injury, Del. Bob Marshall (R-13) and anti-choice clergy held a press conference at the General Assembly yesterday. Del. Marshall used...

    Richmond, VA ( -- In what pro-life advocates are hailing as a brilliant legislative move, Virginia lawmakers stripped Planned Parenthood funding from its own bill to sponsor pro-abortion license plates. The plate bill now sends the proceeds from sales of the plate to a state fund that actually helps pregnant women.Money generated from the sales of the “Trust Women, Respect Choice" license plates was intended to go to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.When Democrat Delegate Robert Brink brought up the bill, on the House floor in preparation for today's final vote, the legislation said the Virginia League of Planned Parenthood...

    If you call yourself a concerned citizen you should be outraged – I sure am. Now at a time of fiscal crisis when Washington should be tightening its belt and limiting its budget to the essentials, it has proposed an increase in funding (to the tune of $10 million) to an already expensive and dubious program dubbed “Title X”. In the 2010 proposed budget the President wants the tax payer to spend a whopping $327 million in total on “family planning” which includes direct funds to abortions here in the United States and globally, and direct funds to highly controversial...

    Abortion-rights advocates have been unable to halt the "Choose Life" license plate variations in nearly two-dozen states, so now they're working to balance the bumper debate. Activists are pushing a "Trust Women/Respect Choice" license plate in Virginia, which would become only the fourth state to offer a pro-choice plate and the first to require legislative approval for it. Supporters have threatened to sue if lawmakers don't give drivers the option. "We really don't feel like a license plate is the place to be promoting a political agenda," said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. "However, the pro-choice community...

    New York, NY ( -- The hit MTV television show "16 and Pregnant" is back for its controversial second season featuring a new slate of pregnant teenage girls and their stories. The network has never been one to shy away from abortion but one pro-abortion blogger says she's upset the show doesn't promote teen abortions. Blogger Jessica Valenti shows just how pro-abortion the pro-choice movement is because she's upset the show isn't promoting teen abortions and, instead, profiles girls who keep their baby."Where are the pregnant teens who choose not to stay pregnant? Where are the abortions?" she complains. "If...

    Considering the abortion lobby's deluge of pre-emptive protest against the Tim Tebow Super Bowl advertisement, sponsored by Focus on the Family, few might have guessed its actual form, first unveiled last night: a clean, simple, family-oriented message that never mentioned abortion. The brief spot, garnished with light humor, left pro-abortion forces so scattered in their effort to respond that one group even called another's harsh criticism of the ad "absurd." The ad took two forms - one that showed during the pre-game show, and an extended version that played during the Super Bowl. The first spot shows Pam Tebow against...

    A new report by the International Planned Parenthood Federation is advocating that children as young as 10 be given extensive sex education, including an awareness of sex's pleasures. The report, "Stand and Deliver," charges that religious groups, specifically Catholics and Muslims, deny their young access to comprehensive sexual programs and education. "Young people's sexuality is still contentious for many religious institutions. Fundamentalist and other religious groups — the Catholic Church and madrasas (Islamic Schools) for example — have imposed tremendous barriers that prevent young people, particularly, from obtaining information and services related to sex and reproduction. Currently, many religious teachings...

    Pro-choice advocates could counter the Tim Tebow Pro-life Super Bowl ad by producing an ad featuring a woman who tells about the blessings she experienced as a result of choosing to abort.Imagine a woman the age of Tebow's mom speaking eloquently about the many positive effects on her life that resulted from her decision to have an abortion in the late 1980's. How enormously powerful it would be to hear her talk about these issues:

    WASHINGTON, D.C., February 5, 2010 ( – After one year of waiting, Dawn Johnsen, Obama’s radical pro-abortion nominee to head the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), has seen her chances for Senate confirmation delayed once again. The Senate Judiciary Committee decided on Thursday that they had run out of time to consider her selection and agreed to postpone a vote to a later date. In fact, the sun may be setting altogether on Johnsen’s confirmation hopes, as Senate Republicans have expressed their opposition, and the seating of Massachusetts GOP Sen. Scott Brown brings the word “filibuster” back into the...

    February 4, 2010 ( - Striking back at the pro-life Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America has issued its own abortion-themed football video, claiming that the true lesson of Tebow's story is that society should "respect and trust women" to make the decision to abort their child.  The Washington Post also added to the football-themed abortion debate this week, re-publishing a 1989 video of NFL players who condemned the destruction of unborn life for an American Life League video.The Tebow spot, entitled “Celebrate family, celebrate life," is sponsored by Focus on the Family.  Although details...

    What is the National Organization for Women afraid of? Apparently a touching story about a courageous woman who chooses life in the face of adversity is just too much to take. And when her football star son decides to share that story on Super Bowl Sunday, well, that goes too far. It’s “divisive.” NOW and its affiliate organizations the Feminist Majority and Women’s Media Center are condemning the Super Bowl advertisement featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam, calling it an offensive “anti-choice” ad. Could you imagine anything more ironic? The organization that purports to embrace women and “choice” is...

When I glanced over to see the source of the epithets that were being screamed at us, I met the eyes of one young woman wearing a black bandana over the bottom half of her face. She happened to look over and meet my gaze, and in her...
