I love living in the South…

Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana) is vowing to do everything within his power to block the Freedom of Choice Act from moving forward in the Senate. -view article

From 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 the…??

From the National Abortion Federation:
Certified Nurse-Midwives, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants as Abortion Providers – The role of advanced practice clinicians in providing safe, legal abortion services. view article-

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.

In the News today

Senate Defeats Pro-Life Amendment to Restore Mexico City Policy.
‘On Wednesday, members of the U.S. Senate defeated an amendment sponsored by pro-life members to restore the Mexico City Policy that President Barack Obama rescinded last week.’ -view article-

And, add insult to injury…

‘…we are supposed to take it as a sign of Obama’s willingness to “reach out” to pro-lifers that he waited until the massive crowd that attended the March for Life left town before obliterating the Mexico City Policy. In case you (like me) don’t get it, opening the door to the likes of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which is ideologically committed to increasing the number of abortion across the world, is nothing compared to Obama’s willingness to wait 24 hours before giving them the green light.’ -view article-

Might be an itty bitty silver lining…

‘Another nonprofit organization has found itself a victim of Bernie Madoff’s alleged $50 billion Ponzi scheme. A one-two punch of fundraising woes sparked by the economic crisis and the unfolding Madoff scandal have put The Planned Parenthood Federation of America on its heels, prompting a 20% layoff of staff , according to a report published on Crain’s New York’s website.’ -view article-

Thank you, Mr. Madoff, for helping the cause in a strange but somehow positive way.

Worth Mentioning – from the Drudge Report

From Iran:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Wednesday for “profound changes” in US foreign policy – including an end to support for Israel and an apology to the Islamic republic for past misdeeds. Here, let me help you, Mahmoud, to understand something – we will never apologize for supporting Israel. If we did, then God Himself would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

And Mahmoud isn’t quite finished yet…
Iran’s government spokesman on Tuesday branded the Holocaust a “big lie” created to place the Islamic republic’s arch-foe Israel in the Middle East, the state IRNA news agency reported. “The Holocaust is a concept coming from a big lie in order to settle a rootless regime in the heart of the Islamic world,” Gholam Hossein Elham told a conference on Gaza in central Iran’s religious city of Qom. Is there another Holocaust that I’m not aware of? Puzzled…I thought 6 million JEWS were murdered. In late 2005 Ahmadinejad branded the Holocaust a “myth.”

It looks like President Obama hasn’t gotten acquainted to his White House surroundings. On the way back to the Oval Office Tuesday, the President approached a paned window, instead of the actual door — located a few feet to his right. Now you know that’s FUNNY.

As the world turns, and turns, and turns.

BHO to drop stimulus funds for Planned Parenthood:
After a national pro-life outcry following news that Congressional Democrats placed a bailout for the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the economic stimulus bill, President Barack Obama has urged party leaders to remove it. -view article-

But on the flip side…

White House prepares Pro-Abortion Policy:
The White House has sacked the pro-life administrator for the USAID foreign assistance program so the agency can begin implementing President Barack Obama’s pro-abortion policies. -view article-

And then there’s this…

And from Medical News Today:
Abortion-rights opponents at Sunday’s annual Tennessee Right to Life rally focused on a resolution (SJR 127) under consideration in the state legislature that would amend the constitution to say that nothing secures or protects the right to abortion or requires funding for the procedure. -view article-

I shout Hallelujah to the Lord for the Dems backing off on paying Planned Parenthood part of the stimulus package, but I know that this is just the beginning of a fight not yet seen since the Roe v. Wade decision. This shouldn’t be a Republican decision or a Democrat decision, it should be a Holy Spirit led decision not to murder.

The Lord is preparing me for such a fight and I have the whole armor of God for my defense.
