This is what our new administration has come to – complete faith in a creator – Barack Hussein Obama.
With no pro-life groups invited to respond, the president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, promoted abortion at a White House-sponsored health care summit on Thursday. Ms. Richards called for including access to abortion in any health care reform package President Barack Obama may put forward.
No leading pro-life medical groups or top pro-life organizations were invited or allowed to attend the health care event.
This is called ‘preventative health care’…preventing those that are poor to be born as a burden to the system.
With pro-life advocates worried about the attempt to expand abortion by either making taxpayers fund abortions in a national health care plan or requiring insurance companies to pay for them, pro-life groups have a key interest in the outcome of the debate.
In effect, Obama has said out loud that life has no place in the new administration. The Freedom of Choice Act is still hovering and will be introduced at anytime. Many more American citizens stand to lose their lives. I’ve seen some articles criticizing the war in Iraq for the loss of life because we are sending in troops that put them in harms way and could lose their lives and these critics think that it parallels abortion death. Here’s the difference – those that go to Iraq go knowing they could die for their country. These heroic men and women made a CHOICE to go. Those that die from abortion or embryonic stem cell research had no choice, no voice.
From AP: A showdown is shaping up in some of the nation’s most conservative states over embryonic stem cell research, as opponents draw language and tactics from the battle over abortion to counter President Barack Obama‘s plan to ease research restrictions.
“If you are someone who believes that a single cell embryo is a person then you are looking for any opportunity you can to make that argument. But as a country, legally, we’ve never accepted that,” said Michael Werner of the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research. “The legislative tactics are the same.”
“No ones right for a cure supersedes someone elses right to life,” said Dan Becker, president of Georgia Right to Life.
True enough. Life begins at conception, not when it’s viable enough, according to the Freedom of Choice Act. Since an embryo, or a preborn American citizen, is only a few cells – it’s not a human YET which somehow makes it okay.
“This sets the stage for an attack on the Dickey-Wicker law, which since 1995 has been a provision of the annual appropriations bills for federal health programs. This law prohibits federal funding of ‘the creation of a human embryo or embryos for research purposes; or research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death . . .’ Any member of Congress who votes for legislation to repeal this law is voting to allow federal funding of human embryo farms, created through the use of human cloning”, says Douglas Johnson, a spokesman for the National Right to Life Committee.
With all of this said and done so far, few have mentioned the fact that cloning for research purposes does occur more than most people think, but with the new legislation, it will be much more prevelent and all in the name of science.
Similar “personhood” measures have cleared one chamber each in Montana and North Dakota. These states view that life begins at conception and is a person that has all rights that any other person does, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The liberal media finds these moms with disabled or sick children saying that they are ecstatic that embryonic stem cell research will go ahead ‘because as a mom, you want to do everything for your sick child’. Yes, at the expense of another child or children to MAYBE find a cure for whatever is ailing the child. For one thing, embryonic stem cell research has been going on behind closed doors, privately funded and somewhat publicly funded, for quite some time. So, go ahead with your ‘Hip Hip Hurray Obama’ for now – all he did is look as if he came just in the nick of time to save the day when in reality it’s been here the entire time.
Can you live with yourself knowing that you have seen the demise of who knows how many children to justify curing one?
In a statement on its website, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department said it was “proposing to rescind” the conscience rule “in its entirety.”
President Bush declared January 18th to be National Sanctity of Human Life Day as his final action. He was quoted saying, ‘All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique and worthy of protection.’ Bush administration officials said it merely reflected laws passed by Congress and was meant to prevent discrimination against people based on their religious or moral beliefs and to protect health care workers who do not want to perform abortions.
“The new HHS rule is President Bush’s parting shot at women’s access to basic health care,” said Caroline Fredrickson, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. “This administration has continually put politics and ideology before science and patients’ health.” Ideology?
Ideology? Politics?? Now that is HILARIOUS. Again, abortion is not health care because if the child is dead, it has no health.
The initial HHS rule limits employers ability to require their workers to perform or assist in the performance any health care service program or research activity.
This included pharmacy techs (RU 486, morning after pill), scientists (embryonic stem cell research), doctors & nurses forced to do abortion practices including abortifacients, among others.
The argument is that this rule limits some of the public from health care, but what it really means is ‘specific’ care, such as abortion counseling and family planning.
Incredibly, the new guy shows up and decides what is law and what is not law according to his beliefs. Just like that. The rules constantly change to the point we can’t recognize the Constitution anymore.
“Each year, millions of women—some of whom are pregnant—enter U.S. jails and prisons. For those faced with an unwanted pregnancy while incarcerated, access to abortion services varies widely, according to the Guttmacher Institute.”
“Incarcerated women wishing to terminate a pregnancy face numerous challenges; among them are facilities’ ad hoc responses to abortion requests, difficulties in making transportation or financial arrangements, and the requirement of obtaining a court order”
I’m still trying to figure out how a woman gets pregnant in prison.
“Incarcerated women retain their right to have an abortion”, the article says further. I thought the point of prison is to take rights away from someone that has apparently taken advantage of them in the first place.
Isn’t it true that a convicted felon cannot own a gun or vote, but while IN PRISON you can obtain an abortion? And a constitutional right to do so? How ABSURD is this?
I’m certainly no rocket scientist, but how can your constitional right to vote and bare arms be taken away but you can kill an innocent child?
