From Planned Parenthood:
“We are confident that President-elect Barack Obama, incoming HHS Secretary Daschle, and Jeanne Lambrew will represent an administration committed to ensuring women’s access to affordable, high-quality health care, family planning and prevention services, and to protecting a woman’s right to choose. Planned Parenthood is excited about the opportunity of having true partners in the White House and HHS committed to promoting and protecting women’s health.” -view article-

America abortion debate reaches into African slums
Even without the U.S. policy, abortions would be controversial here. They are illegal in almost all African countries, many of which have conservative Christian or Muslim populations — one of the reasons women interviewed about their abortions declined to give their full names. -view article-
And incredibly, the Dems still want to fund abortions in Africa where some women can be jailed, stoned and ostracized for killing their unborn child. I wonder if BHO thought of that mess…I’m thinking NOT.
This has been a very busy week for both the fight of Pro-Life and my own walk with the Lord. I see God at work and it is incredible to see – watching things unfold, miracles! What a blessing it is to know the Lord and have the burden that I do regarding the pre-born. The burden that God gave me is one of the hugest blessings that I have ever had. I wake up every day thanking Him first and get Holy Spirit inspired second and then I get to kiss my husband ‘Good Morning’ third. What a way to start my day!
Pray for the children lost to abortion, pray for the abortionist that they stop the killing and pray for the women that have to live with this for the rest of their lives.
I pray this week has been the blessing you wanted it to be – mine has!
According to Planned Parenthood:
“We are disappointed that the Medicaid Family Planning State Option, a commonsense provision to expand basic health care to millions of women, including many who have lost their jobs in the current economic downturn, was a victim of misleading attacks and partisan politics, and dropped from the economic stimulus bill,” said PPFA President Cecile Richards. -view article-
What a pitiful and VEILED attempt to get money for the abortion industry. The attempted bail-out hand-out that Planned Parenthood wanted FAILED. And what PPFA will tell you is that now all state funded contraceptive programs will have to be, well, state funded and will cost us Americans millions and millions in the long run because, apparently, only low or no income women needs Planned Parenthood for all their health care needs. The article further says:
‘As ThinkProgress points out, “… conservatives are distorting and simplifying the facts…. this measure would not only aid states, but also provide preventative, cost-saving health care to help low-income women support their families and keep working.”’
Health care, yeah right. I have the coolest bridge for sale…

From LifeNews.com: A South Carolina state House committee approved legislation that would require a 24-hour waiting period before an abortion can be done….Sheryl O’Neal of Johns Island described the devastating effects of her abortion in 1975. “I was coerced to abort by my baby’s father,” she testified. “If there had been a 24-hour waiting period, I believe I would have been strengthened by that waiting period.” -view article-
Amen to that, Sheryl. Studies show that most abortions are performed because the ‘father’ does not want to be accountable either monetarily or emotionally to mother/child. I truly believe that given just 24 hours to think about a life or death decision, most would choose LIFE. The ‘Women’s Right to Know Act’ seems to be working.

What?? Did I read that correctly? Who else is going to be abortionists? Mechanics? Hair Dressers? Pharmacy techs? Maybe the dog groomer. Ugh, stupidity makes my stomach hurt.
