Surely, Obama's promise to "the government out" of health decisions--ludicrous in the prospect of his plansfor ever-expanding health bureaucracies--is code for removing all legal restrictions on abortion and ultimately on euthanasia.


The President's embarrassing tactics are becoming so obvious and empty that even the (gasp!) Associated Press took him to task on a number of his claims and statements.

Unfortunately, the editors of l'Osservatore Romano are easily fooled.

Without "the Lie", of course, the abortion movement would collapse instantly. It can ONLY exist on lies.

Whenever the media refers to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith always added is 'formerly known as The Holy Office of the Inquisition'. Why don't we take a leaf from the media's book and whenever NARAL is referred to we should add formerly known as' National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League'.


I'm with Sharon on that one!
I'm also with taking back the language and refusing to be labeled. I've taken news media to task for referring to abortion supporters as "pro-choice" and life supporters as "anti-abortion." Which, in this country, are we more likely to support? Someone who's "pro" a good thing like "choice," or someone who's "anti-"...ANYTHING?

Therefore, the challenge is to start, and KEEP, calling spades a spade. If you're pro-"choice", you're only "pro" ONE choice. If you're "anti-abortion," you're "against infanticide." If the culture can all shame us into using euphemisms like "gay" and "impaired," why can't we insist that the culture also call us non-inflammatory, non-prejudicial names? A hate crime is a hate crime, and it seems that anyone who's for infanticide is advocating a pretty serious hate crime against the unborn...

It's a thought that deserves further development. :-)

An excellent analysis of our president's ability to debate a woman's right to choose. Now you need to write a similar article on his Catholic entourage!


Justice Ginsburg spoke quite bluntly in her recent interview in the New York Times Magazine. "Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion." Alas, with the Supreme Court upholding the ban on Medicaid funding for abortion in 1980, she thought her perception of the government's rationale for abortion "rights" was incorrect. Actually that view is shared by many people, including top achievers such as Mr. Obama's new "science czar" John Holdren, whose disturbing paper trail including Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment written with Paul and Anne Ehrlich, leaves no doubt. We now have the tragedy of a minority president obsessed with making sure that the centuries-old dream of the elites to do away with the "undesirables" can at last be fulfilled. Heaven help us - will we survive until this demented generation passes from leadership?

Perhaps we should mint a new word to refer to this President. Lincoln was known as The Great Emancipator; Reagan was known as The Great Communicator; perhaps Obama should go down in history as The Great Deceptiator.

It is hard to believe anything that comes out of the white house now, especially with the health care plan in reality being a death care plan being like the T4 plan of Hitler in 1939. The Nazi's killed the less desirable and felt that they were answering to a higher call... furthermore the people who were victims in many cases felt it was their duty to die, like the elderly who are going to be counseled into ending their own life rather than costing the government money for health care. And we will be paying for it!

T. Shaw

Welfare for everyone - but the aged.

In addition to letting elderly Americans drop dead (eskimos left them on ice floes), your social justice president will use tax $$$ to pay for infanticide on demand and for medical care for the 275,000,000 FNG's that will sneak into your wonderful welfare state for the world.
