  • 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 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 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.

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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    The story behind Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow's arrival into this world is remarkable. So-called "women's groups" would seem to prefer that as many Americans as possible not know the story about the courageous and faith-based decision Tebow's mother made to carry her pregnancy to term. That's the only plausible reason why they are opposing a 30-second Focus on the Family (FOTF) ad scheduled to air during the Super Bowl. So far, it seems that CBS, which will air the Super Bowl on February 7, seems disinclined to buckle. David Crary's coverage of the story at the Associated Press (from...

That's bad, but it gets worse. They allow and pay for abortions for any reason. They don't limit them to only cases where the health of the mother or child...

Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) asserted that the compromise on abortion contained within the bill, which would seek to segregate federal funds from subsidizing health plans covering abortion, is unconstitutional. "What this provision does that Sen. Nelson negotiated sets up a Supreme Court challenge. Roe v.

  • The Aging Generation of "Choice"

    The die-hard days of radical pro-abortion feminism are disappearing. The era of "choice," "reproductive freedom," and "women's rights," are fading as the most adamant pro-abortion activists age. Sheryl Stolberg writes in her new piece at the New York Times of a "generational divide" among those in the pro-abortion camp: “The language and values, if you are older, [are] around the right to control your own body, reproductive freedom, sexual liberation as empowerment,” said Anna Greenberg [a Democratic pollster who studies attitudes toward abortion]. “That is a baby-boom generation way of thinking. If you look at people under 30, that is...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- When Americans gather around their dinner tables with friends and family tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving, they will catch up on the latest family chatter and probably talk about sports and the weather.

In an email today to supporters of the abortion business, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards unveiled her own Thanksgiving dinner conversation guide. "I don't know how things are at your Thanksgiving table, but in my house we don't just make small talk," she writes, saying she is "committed to...

    WASHINGTON — Providence Bishop Thomas J. Tobin has forbidden Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy to receive the Roman Catholic sacrament of Holy Communion because of his advocacy of abortion rights, the Rhode Island Democrat said Friday. “The bishop instructed me not to take Communion and said that he has instructed the diocesan priests not to give me Communion,” Kennedy said in a telephone interview. Kennedy said the bishop had explained the penalty by telling him “that I am not a good practicing Catholic because of the positions that I’ve taken as a public official,” particularly on abortion. He declined to say...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Rep. Patrick Kennedy says Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin has barred him from receiving communion because of his support of abortion rights. The Providence Journal reports on its Web site Sunday that Kennedy said in an interview that Tobin issued the order during discussions with the Democratic lawmaker, further escalating a simmering ideological dispute between the two men. Under church rules, Tobin can prevent Kennedy from receiving communion within his diocese, which covers Rhode Island. It’s unclear whether bishops outside Rhode Island will take the same path.

    By teeing up a public battle over abortion in the health care bill now before the Senate, congressional Democrats could be risking more than just the fate of the legislation. Hanging in the balance are millions of Catholic swing voters who moved decisively to the Democrats in 2008 and who could shift away just as readily in 2010. According to exit polls, President Barack Obama won the support of 53 percent of Catholic voters, a seven-point increase over the showing of the Democrats’ 2004 nominee, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), a Catholic. Among Latino Catholics, who are often more conservative than...
