Really?

noticeState Senator Kevin Ranker from our local 40th district has sponsored legislation to regulate operations of pregnancy centers.  There are a lot of details, but one of the main focuses of his effort is to ensure that these pregnancy centers  “disclose that they do not provide services or referrals for abortion or comprehensive birth control.”  Really it’s not common knowledge that these pregnancy centers are an alternative to 3 decades of Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion efforts?  We really need to demand that these centers warn their potential clients that they do not kill children?  Has anyone noticed if Senator Ranker is also sponsoring legislation demanding that Planned Parenthood identify that their facilities are equipped to kill children?

Pregnancy Centers and Clinics under attack

I wanted to pass along this letter I received today with information regarding a couple of pieces of pro-abortion legislation.  What I think is most disgusting about the proposals is not that they are pro-abortion, which you’d think was as bad as it gets; what get’s me is that this is anti-prolife.  That’s right, not only are there people who feel they have a right to kill children, but there are people who wish to deny others the right to save children.

At the end of the letter there is a link to more information, but you could also check out a the podcasts from KGMI PM Bellingham or check out the comments on KGMI’s Facebook. This  Morning Show with Joe & Patti podcast is also worth listening to, but I warn you it’s tough to listen to Joe justify his position. I don’t recommend it on a full stomach.

The Letter:

Pregnancy Centers and Clinics across the State are under attack and we need your help.

House Bill 1366 and Senate Bill 5274 have been introduced to Washington State Legislators. These bills were designed by Abortion Proponents to Shut Down life-affirming Pregnancy Centers and Clinics in Washington State. We can’t let that happen. Women and children depend on the free services they receive from community based Pregnancy Centers and Clinics.

This Bill Hurts our Ability to Serve –

This bill puts certain requirements and restrictions on pregnancy centers and would open them up to lawsuits and severe financial penalties for things like-

  • A requirement to immediately provide written pregnancy test results in a person’s primary language (any primary language).
  • A requirement to include statements of what we don’t provide specifically in these six languages English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian, Chinese AND any other frequently spoken languages in that county on ALL advertising materials.
  • HB 1366 and SB 5274 make provision for any citizen to bring a lawsuit, even if they have never sought services from a pregnancy center. And for county prosecutors to bring a lawsuit against us for such “offenses” and requires that we pay up to 3x the amount of damages, additional fines and the prosecution lawyer fees if they win. And, does not require that we be compensated for legal fees if they lose the suit. This would take money away from services to those in need and could close down Centers and Clinics.
  • The advertising requirements would be cost probative – limiting our ability to reach those in need, thereby limiting their choice of clinics.
  • These restrictions apply ONLY to life-affirming Pregnancy Centers and Clinics but NOT to other medical/pregnancy organizations.
  • This Bill is meant to be obstructive and not constructive to Pregnancy Centers and Clinics’ ability to provide services.

Facts about the Whatcom County Pregnancy Clinic

  • WCPC advertises under the heading “Abortion Alternatives”
  • WCPC givens written notes to all clients about services we do and do not provide prior to their appointments.
  • WCPC operates under the supervision and license of a Physician licensed in the State of Washington.
  • WCPC operates in accordance with all applicable laws including the release of patient records.
  • 99.7% of WCPC clients were so pleased with the service they received they would refer a friend (according to client exit survey).

Pregnancy Centers and Clinics have supplied over $18.6million per year in services at NO COST TO THE TAXPAYER OR CLIENTS.

Government funded programs are being cut; Pregnancy Centers and Clinics are stepping in to fill those needs. If Pregnancy Centers and Clinics are shut down, who will meet that need?

What YOU Can Do:

  • PRAY
  • Pass this Email on to others
  • Come to the hearing on January 24th 1:30 John L O’ Brien Building Mtg Room B (we recommend arriving EARLY)
  • Contact Your Legislator – Legislators for District 42 are pro-life. We recommend a “thank you for standing with life and for pregnancy centers” msg. There are talking points below for speaking with Legislators. Leave a message for your Legislator at 1-800-562-6000

Mad World of Barack Obama

I can’t begin to explain the Mad World of Barack Obama, except to say that it seems rooted in something very evil.  But even though I can’t explain his mad world,  I feel a need to expose his mad world to anyone considering him as an option for leading our nation.

I want to thank you all for coming. It’s important that you’re here, to send a signal that you’re dedicated to the protection of human life. The issue of abortion divides Americans, no question about it. Yet today we stand on common ground. The Born Alive Infants Protection Act establishes a principle in America law and American conscience: there is no right to destroy a child who has been born alive. (Applause.) A child who is born has intrinsic worth and must have the full protection of our laws.

Today I sign the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. This important legislation ensures that every infant born alive — including an infant who survives an abortion procedure — is considered a person under federal law. (Applause.) This reform was passed with the overwhelming support of both political parties, and it is about to become the law of the land.

President George W. Bush, August 2002

President Bush made a wise choice when he joined with overwhelming numbers in his support for the life of children born alive; a nobrainer, if you like to poke fun at George W. Bush. 

But as pointed out in the Creative Minority video, one person, Sen. Obama, did not support this act and in fact led opposition to it in his home state.   Only in Barack Obama’s mad world can someone entertain voting into office, a president who not only is pro-abortion rights, but is also pro-murder when the child has the audacity to survive their own abortion.

34 words

Colorado for Equal Rights has turned in more than enough signatures so Colorado voters can have the opportunity this fall, to amend their state constitution with 34 words. 

Section 31. Person defined. As used in sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution, the terms “person” or “persons” shall include any human being from the moment of fertilization.

Granted, they are simple words, but they are also powerful because they will legally establish personhood, at the moment of fertilization.  Does anyone remember that Jesus was a child before he was born?

…she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
(Mat 1:18)

It may seem ridiculous, but there are many out there who refuse to acknowledge that a baby in the womb, let alone a human embryo are actually people.  Of course the ridiculous, are mostly pro-abortion activists, Planned Parenthood and NARAL types, who know that to acknowledge these children as people, will spell the end of their 35 year long killing spree. 

If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.

Justice Harry Blackman in the majority opinion of Roe v. Wade (1973)

I personally hate to think that the moral base of America has degraded so far that law, rather than conscience, is required to stop the killing of children.  I like the direction that Colorado for Equal Rights is going; no new laws.

 

The second part of this story is the credit due to a young Christian woman, Kristi Burton, who championed this amendment. 

Kristi Burton remembers the day, at age 13, when she decided she would spend her life defending the unborn.

She made her commitment to the movement as she lay in bed with a cold or bout of flu, reading a book on community service and watching the 2000 elections on TV.

“It just came to me,” Burton said. “I prayed about it and knew God was calling me to do it.”

Burton, now 20, is the leader of a Colorado ballot initiative to define a constitutionally protected person as “any human being from the moment of fertilization.”

Denver Post – Face of “personhood” issue young, resolute

“She’s always been a very committed person, very sincere, an ‘I-want-to make-a-difference-in-the world-type person,'” said John S. Smith, senior pastor of Majestic View Church, the Baptist church in Kiowa that the Burtons have attended for seven years. “She was raised that way, but there’s always been something about her that doesn’t want to sit back and watch the world go by.”
