MONDAY MORNING POLITICKING WITH
Welcome to the TWILIGHT ZONE!
In response to questions about American Right to Life's allegations that former Congressman Schaffer turned a blind eye to the plight of Chinese women regarding forced abortion and his support of MFN for China, this interview is priceless as an example of duck and cover!
Monday Morning Politicking with Bob Schaffer
By Jeremy Pelzer
…This week's Monday Morning Politicking… conversation with Schaffer. He discussed recent reports regarding his 1999 trip to the Northern Marianas Islands… Schaffer was accompanied by his campaign manager, Dick Wadhams, who jumped into the conversation at several points.
PolitickerCO: The campaign's been fairly quiet about the whole Marianas Islands controversy since it came out in the Post about a week or so ago. What's your take on this whole controversy and how it's played out?
Schaffer: Why don't you describe the controversy?
PolitickerCO: Well, just that the Post put out a series of articles detailing how, one, you went to the Marianas Islands and it was funded by or organized by Preston Gates...
Schaffer: Really? Was it?
(Politickerco Editor's Note: Schaffer's trip, according to the Denver Post, was not paid for by Preston Gates, jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff's former law firm. According to the Post, it was paid for by the California-based Traditional Values Coalition, which Schaffer described as a religious group "concerned with human rights." The Post also reported that "Later investigations have shown that in many instances, TVC - which claims to represent 43,000 churches - acted virtually as a political arm of Abramoff's lobbying operation.")
Schaffer: Why don't you take the opportunity to substantiate your comment just now?
PolitickerCO: Sure, sure. This is just -well, what is your take on the controversy? Why don't you fill me in?
Schaffer: Why don't you describe the controversy?
The stonewalling continues . . . .
To hear Bob Enyart's play by play description of this crazy obfuscation and hear the latest on the Colorado for Equal Rights Personhood Amendment effort, which U.S. Senate candidate Schaffer won't support, listen daily at kgov.com

SURVIVOR SAYS U.S. SHARES GUILT FOR CHINA'S ABORTIONS
Consumerism pushes factories, boosts pressure to limit children

The logo for Lifecommercials.com, for whom China forced-abortion survivor Shiu Yon Zhou is speaking this weekend
A survivor of China's forced-abortion policy is warning Americans they share the responsibility for that nation's holocaust of government-mandated death through their consumerism.
The testimony comes from Shiu Yon Zhou, whose ordeal in which she lost the child who would have been her first-born has been played before Congress, on national television and in the media.
But she spoke to WND today in light of the 2008 Olympics which are scheduled in Beijing and to counter statements being released by the Chinese government that the human rights situation, long deplored as one of the worst on record, is improving.
Her story was revealed to WND in sometimes-halting English, as she still works to grasp the idiomatics of the language she now teaches to her three children, ages 6, 4, and 2, at home.

ALAN KEYES - EARTH TO USA -
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS LOST ITS MORAL AUTHORITY!!!
23 North Lime Street
Lancaster, PA 17602
After Irreconcilable Differences Lead To Split With GOP, Alan Keyes Invited To Party
Lancaster, PA- Responding to news that former Reagan administration official Alan Keyes has officially left the Republican Party, (http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/2008-04-16-keyes_N.htm) Constitution Party National Committee Chairman Jim Clymer applauded the move and extended Keyes an invitation to become part of the fastest-growing third party- the Constitution Party.
“You can almost hear a nationwide standing ovation. Ambassador Keyes joins millions of Americans abandoning the party that long ago abandoned them. Keyes had the courage to say what a lot of folks have been thinking for years- that the Republican Party’s leadership is way out of touch with its base”, Clymer added, saying: “ We encourage Dr. Keyes and his supporters to discover there’s a perfect fit for them. We no longer have to endure elected officials who defy the will of the people. There is an option in the Constitution Party”.
Former United Nations Ambassador Alan Keyes announced his break with the Republican Party at a speech in Hazleton, Pa, a city known for Mayor Lou Barletta’s aggressive efforts to stop illegal immigration.
Keyes said the two political parties now controlling our government are “a sham” and encouraged his audience to demand a return to the way the founding fathers meant it to be when they wrote the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
Keyes said the “Republican Party has come to a dark and confused place.” ““Dark and confused” are terms that apply to the Republican Party’s handling of just about every issue facing America today”, Clymer noted, agreeing with Keyes. “From appalling complicity in the illegal invasion, to historic trade deficits, assaults on civil liberties and out of control spending, the Republicans have sold out their base time and again. Alan Keyes’s break with the GOP is a real shot in the arm for Americans who’ve come to the conclusion the Republicans can no longer be considered the party of conservatives”, Clymer added.
The Constitution Party, the largest and fastest-growing third party based on voter registration (Ballot Access News) will choose a presidential candidate at its national convention, April 23- 26th in Kansas City, Missouri.(http://constitutionparty.com/view_events.php). Dr. Keyes is scheduled to address the gathering of delegates from all 50 states. Alan Keyes will be encouraged to offer delegates his plan for returning America to its constitutional foundation.

I LOVE THIS LEFTY BLOG POST!
"Way to Go, Radical Lifers!"
This left wing blog makes a really powerful and valid point about the national conversation, long overdue, but which has recently been started by Colorado Right to Life over forced abortion in China and a Republican U.S. Senatorial candidate's refusal to support the Colorado for Equal Rights Personhood
"So, for those of you keeping score at home, being against forced abortions=radical fringe pro-life position. Supporting forced abortions and saying they’re part of a model program=mainstream. Good to know."
Bill Press posted this pertinent comment to yesterday's Lynn Bartels' Rocky Mountain News story, "Schaffer engulfed
in abortion storm."
"Let me get this straight. Schaffer needs the bishops to tell him whether or not to support a 15-word, pro-life initiative? That doesn't ring true."
WELCOME TO THE WORLD, TRIG !!
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Gives Birth to Down Baby Despite Abortion Pressure
by Steven Ertelt
April 22, 2008
Juneau, AK (LifeNews.com) -- As many as 80 percent of unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome become victims of abortion, but Alaska Gov, Sarah Palin didn't let her child become a statistic. Palin, who has deeply-felt pro-life views, gave birth to her fifth child this week and the baby was diagnosed with the condition.
On Tuesday, Palin confirmed her baby, named Trig Paxson, has Down syndrome.
"Trig is beautiful and already adored by us," Palin said in a statement LifeNews.com obtained.
"We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives," she said.
'We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed," the 44 year-old governor added.
Trig was born on Friday, one month before his due date, and he weighed 6 pounds, 2 ounces.
Pro-life advocates heaped praise on Palin about the news and said she and her family made a courageous decision to keep the baby.
“I can't help but remember Governor Palin’s campaign slogan ‘Take a Stand,'" Debbie Joslin, the president of Eagle Forum Alaska told LifeNews.com.
"Her choice to value life in a very personal way speaks volumes and gives those of us in the pro-life community in Alaska cause to believe that we truly do have a pro-life leader in charge of our state," she said.
"When so many in our culture have chosen to devalue the lives of those who face special learning disabilities, Governor Palin shines as a great positive role model," Joslin added.
Billy Valentine, a pro-life student leader who worked on the presidential campaign of Sam Brownback, was equally excited.
"Thanks be to God that Gov. Palin is pro-life and the baby wasn't one of the 80% of Down syndrome lives that are aborted each year," he said.
"Say a prayer for Gov. Palin and her family and thank God that the baby is blessed with a pro-life family," Valentine added.
The Palins have four other children including Track, 18, Bristol, 17, Willow, 13 and Piper, 7.

THE POPE BLESSES THE DISABLED
APRIL 21, 2008
The pope and the disabled
by Gina Dalfonzo
One of Pope Benedict XVI's "most intimate public event[s]" during his trip to the United States was his blessing of a group of disabled youths and their caregivers in Yonkers, New York. He told them:
God's unconditional love, which bathes every human individual, points to a meaning and purpose for all human life. . . . Through his cross, Jesus in fact draws us into his saving love and in so doing shows us the way ahead -- the way of hope which transfigures us all, so that we too, become bearers of that hope and charity for others.
Sadly, according to this Catholic PRWire release, the pope learned this fundamental lesson in an unspeakably tragic way.
As a boy of fourteen, Joseph Ratzinger had a cousin who had been born with Down's Syndrome, only a bit younger than himself. In 1941, German state "therapists" came to the boy's house and probably informed the parents of the government regulation that prohibited mentally handicapped children from remaining in their parents' home. In spite of the family's pleas, the representatives of the Nazi state took the child away. The Ratzinger family never saw him again. Later the family learned that he had "died," most likely murdered, for being merely "undesirable," a blemish in the race, and a drain on the productivity of the nation. This was Joseph Ratzinger's first experience of a murderous philosophy that asserts that some people are disposable.
At a time when children with Down syndrome are once again being systematically slaughtered, may the pope's experience with "a murderous philosophy that asserts that some people are "disposable," and his resulting understanding of the value of each human life, help bring us to our senses.
And with deep appreciation to Unborn Word of the Day comes this powerful quote from Pope Benedict:
“Life, which is a work of God, should not be denied to anyone, even the tiniest and most defenseless unborn child, and far less to a child with serious disabilities. At the same time, echoing the Pastors of the Church in Italy, I advise you not to fall into the deceptive trap of thinking that life can be disposed of, to the point of ‘legitimizing its interruption with euthanasia, even if it is masked by a veil of human compassion’

Morality Tale for Today!
Harry Wu and Zhou
China- Why Most Favored Nation trading status, forced abortion and the Olympics?
This San Diego News Notes story from the 1990s reminds us of the horrific human rights abuses, which should make us question WHY our ties to China have no demands for basic human rights, before awarding MFN trade status or attending the 08 Olympics hosted by this brutal communist regime.
AFTER NEARLY FIVE YEARS OF INCARCERATION by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Chinese refugee Zhou Shiu Yon has been released from Elmwood Detention Facility in Milpitas. Zhou was freed on May 28 after intervention by Chinese human rights activist Harry Wu. Two days before her release, Wu and a reporter from ABC's Nightline show had visited Shiu Yon in prison.
According to Tim Palmquist of the Bakersfield pro-life group Voice for Life, Zhou claims that when she became pregnant without official permission, five Chinese government agents broke down her door (the pregnancy having been reported by her doctor) and took her to a hospital. She was forced to take an unknown pill then locked in a room and told a worker would return in 30 minutes to give her a shot -- possibly RU-486, according to Palmquist. Her boyfriend bribed one of the hospital workers to allow Zhou to jump out of the third-story window. He picked her up and arranged for her to escape China on a smuggler's boat.
The boat was adrift for the last 28 days of its 90 days at sea before it was intercepted in Mexican waters off Ensenada on July 11, 1993 by the U.S. Coast Guard. Zhou, extremely ill, was airlifted to UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest, where she was told by staff that "they must take the baby out" to save her life. Zhou believes the baby was alive when she got to San Diego; she is still unclear about whether San Diego doctors aborted her baby or removed an already dead baby.
Wu and Zhou testified June 10 before the House Subcommittee on International Operations and Human Rights (led by Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey) about China's forced abortion and sterilization policy. Zhou told of women hiding throughout their pregnancies, nine-months-pregnant women being taken for forced abortions, and houses being burned down to punish people who violate the one-child policy.
Wu criticized the United Nations' granting of an award to China's population control program. "Americans must wake up to the cruelty and shame of a policy which makes brothers and sisters illegal," Wu told the subcommittee, "and the whitewashing of the UN on this issue must end."

Colorado Right to Life brought Rev Childress to Colorado to address the Ministerial Alliance
in the early 2000s. His hard message about the horrific rate of abortions in the black community fell on deaf ears. We are currently attempting to get a meeting with State Senate President, Peter Groff to show him the UCLA sting of Planned Parenthood which beautifully illustrates the racist policies of PP founder Margaret Sanger are alive and well today.
Senate President Groff simply must speak out about the building of the new Planned Parenthood death camp being
built by Weitz in the Stapleton Redevelopment district.
Shepherds Leading the Sheep to the Slaughter
By Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr
Here are the birth statistics for African-American babies in the City of Philadelphia just a couple a years ago: 10,880 born, 9,259 aborted. Nearly half or 46% of all babies in the City of Brotherly love were dismembered and brutally killed by means of abortion. Moreover, there are twenty-five other major urban cities in America that report having a higher abortion rate than live birth rate.
Such carnage is incredible! One would think the Gate Keepers of Righteousness, Deed, and Thought would be appalled. The magnitude of this devastation of the progeny of our community should stir our clergy to decisive action. We should be hearing chants of, "Stop the madness!" "Stop the genocide!" "End now the injustice!" Or like Moses said to Pharaoh, "Let my people go!"
Instead of an outcry for justice for our offspring, we see a worse nightmare unfolding continuously within the "flocks" of the city of Ben Franklin. The Black Clergy of Philadelphia and surrounding vicinity have recently announced their endorsement of Senator Barak Obama. It would appear the Shepherds of Philadelphia are leading their sheep to slaughter. With any cursory search of the Senator's voting record, one can easily make the case, Barack Obama may be most pro-abortion presidential candidate in the history of this country. It would seem he is a man who would in no way deter the holocaust of babies predominately African-American. Senator Obama has vowed to continue to propagate the ideology of the leading abortion provider: Planned Parenthood. And in an address to Planned Parenthood Action Fund on July 17th, 2007, the Senator stated,
"There will always be people, many of goodwill, who do not share my view on the issue of Choice. On this fundamental issue, I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield, but that doesn't mean we can't find common ground. Because we know that what's at stake is more than whether or not women can choose an abortion."
One should definitely ask the question after hearing the speech of the senator: what is Obama's view of Choice; a question probably not asked by the Philadelphia Black Clergy. What are his views? Barack Obama's view of Choice means you can kill a baby anytime, I repeat, anytime, during the full nine months of pregnancy. It gets worse. The Senator's view of Choice is, if the child should survive an abortion attempt on their life, you can still kill the baby with impunity! This is Barack Obama's view of Choice. Can this be the view of my fellow Black Clergy of Philadelphia?
I have a couple salient questions to ask these Pastors: How would you respond to the following true account if it were presented to you in your Study by Ms. Jill Staneck, a Nurse? What would you do if she came to you with these concerns of these horrific deeds and asked for your help in preventing such criminal behavior at the place of her employment? What would you do?
"One night, a nursing co-worker was taking an aborted Down's syndrome baby who was born alive to our Soiled Utility Room because his parents did not want to hold him, and she did not have time to hold him. I could not bear the thought of this suffering child dying alone in a Soiled Utility Room, so I cradled and rocked him for the 45 minutes that he lived. He was 21 to 22 weeks old, weighed about a ½ pound, and was about 10 inches long. He was too weak to move very much, expending any energy he had trying to breathe. Toward the end, he was so quiet that I couldn't tell if he was still alive unless I held him up to the light to see if his heart was still beating through his chest wall. After he was pronounced dead, we folded his little arms across his chest, wrapped him in a tiny shroud, and carried him to the hospital morgue where all of our dead patients are taken."
As a shepherd, I am sure you are holding back tears and vowing your help in ending these callous and inhumane acts of cruelty. But that wasn't the response from Mr. Obama. In 2001, 2002, and 2003 he voted not to; I repeat: not to provide protection to these children! My fellow Clergy, this is his view of "Choice". Remember, Senator Obama and Planned Parenthood have vowed they will not yield.
What does this mean to you, my Brothers? Essentially, if something isn't done to stop this madness, the flock you have been commissioned by God to protect and nurture, will live, by your actions of endorsement, with the increased danger of being victimized by the scourge of abortion. For the illusion of "Change" you have endorsed the predatory practices of the leading abortion provider that targets your community and made a covenant with death ignoring the cries of our most vulnerable.
The Philadelphia Clergy stated one of the reasons why they choose Obama was his early opposition to the war. How ironic it is that this endorsement of Obama, for his opposition to the war in Iraq, only escalates the war waged against babies in the womb of their mothers in their own city. In Iraq 6% of the casualties are African-American. In the Abortion War in Pennsylvania, over 55% of the casualties of abortion are African American.
Dr. Martin Luther King said, "The modern day church is often a weak and ineffectual church and is often an arch-supporter of the status quo." Issues4Life Foundation reported 49% percent of all abortions are African-American though we only make up 12% of the population. Walter Hoye says, "The present status quo is destroying the Afro-American community. It's time for the Church to respond to this tragic condition." I would add: it's time for shepherds to protect their sheep and expose the wolves in sheep's clothing.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD GETS A PASS!!

cover up of statutory rape to Colorado AG, John Suthers' office. We were told by Deputy, Jason Dunn
that there was nothing that could be done.
Texas Sex Abuse Outrage
Authorities carry-out massive armed raid on religious community suspected of protecting men who rape children, but look the other way when others are caught red-handed doing the same thing.
Contact: Danny Meegan, Life Dynamics Incorporated, 940-380-8800
ELDORADO, Texas, April 18 /Christian Newswire/-- When state authorities raided the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints facility in Eldorado, Texas, it exposed the fact that some people and organizations involved in the cover-up of child sexual abuse are not the targets of such investigations – even when overwhelming evidence identifies the perpetrators.
During a three-month undercover investigation, Life Dynamics Incorporated of Denton, Texas recorded over 800 calls to Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across America – including Texas. The female caller portrayed a 13-year-old girl who was pregnant by an adult and wanted an abortion in order to hide the illegal sexual relationship from her parents and the authorities. On the tapes, many of the clinic workers are heard telling the caller that this situation was unlawful and that they were legally mandated to report it to the state. However, even after acknowledging this, 91 percent of the 800 facilities contacted agreed to illegally conceal it. Representatives of these organizations--often operating on tax dollars--routinely instructed a child who they believed to be a sexual assault victim to:
• lie about or conceal her age or the age of the man who impregnated her
• participate in illegal activity in order to circumvent the state's parental notification law
• use a fictitious name, phone number or address when she came to the facility
• keep the situation hidden by altering what she would say when she came to the facility
• be more careful about what information she gave out and to whom
Many clinic representatives told the caller that they deal with this situation "all the time" and that the advice they were giving her is the way they normally handle it. And some of the most outrageous calls came from Texas. "The tapes from our investigation clearly prove that these people are running a statewide pedophile protection racket," said Life Dynamics President, Mark Crutcher, "and our law enforcement agencies are knowingly letting them get away with it."
Crutcher also points out that the situation in Eldorado affects only a tiny fraction of the potential child sexual abuse victims in Texas, while Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities see them by the tens-of-thousands every year. He calls the selective enforcement of laws designed to protect Texas children from sexual predators, "a disgrace, a scandal and an embarrassment to our state."

Abortion greatly increases a woman's chance to be diagnosed with
"Sex" star reveals cancer battle
posted by: Kirk Montgomery , 9NEWS Entertainment Reporter
NEW YORK (AP) - Cynthia Nixon has joined forces with the breast cancer organization Susan G. Komen for the Cure and is going public with her own battle with breast cancer.
Nixon, who is reprising her role as Miranda in HBO's "Sex and the City" in an upcoming movie, had a lumpectomy two years ago and then underwent six and a half weeks of radiation. She also helped her mother battle breast cancer.
"As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, knowing my personal risk made me more aware and more empowered when I faced my own diagnosis," the 42-year-old actress said in a statement. "I want to help Susan G. Komen for the Cure educate the 1.1 million women around the globe who face a diagnosis each year."
The Dallas-based Komen foundation is known for its Race for the Cure events.
Nixon will serve as an ambassador for the organization and will share her cancer experiences in a series of Web videos.
She told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that she didn't want to make her cancer treatment public while she was going through it. "I didn't want paparazzi at the hospital," she said.

Sadly, the Susan G Komen Foundation gave $700 K to the very organization that has created an epidemic of breast cancer in America since Roe v Wade.

MAJOR IRONY ALERT!!!!!!!!!!
I'm in awe of this historic moment where I'm watching the US Chief of Protocol, Nancy Brinker, who just happens to be
founder of Susan G Komen Foundation, greet Pope Benedict XVI in Washington D.C.
Just this past week, it was revealed that Komen gave
to Planned Parenthood, an organization that we recently learned
accepts donations to destroy minority babies.
We must pray that the Pope will impress upon the heart of this woman the utter evil her organization is funding!
STAR PARKER BANNED FROM CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY
Yes, I’ve been gagged.
No this is not Al Qaeda or the Taliban. This is the University of Saint Thomas – the largest private university, a Catholic university, in Minnesota.
They’ve denied permission for me, Star Parker, to speak on their campus about the impact of abortion in America.
It’s true. The Washington Times has written about it. The Minneapolis Star Tribune has written about it.
What this tells me is that I’m being effective. It’s why liberals, even at one of the nation’s largest private Catholic universities, don’t want me there. And it’s why I’m writing today to ask you to support my organization CURE so we can fight these liberals running our universities and keep my speaking tour active.
I have spoken at over 150 universities around the United States and getting a platform in the belly of this liberal beast has often been a challenge. But I must say that this snub is particularly disturbing to me.
My concern is that it comes in an election year that has made race and gender issues front and center. Yet a black female cannot speak at one of our nation’s premier universities on the very issue that has deeply divided us politically left and right.
This rejection is particularly ironic during the very week when Pope Benedict XVI begins what he is calling a “teaching” visit to the United States.
This Pope has called abortion “Today’s gravest injustice.”
More than a million human lives are aborted in the United States each year. About 120,000 a month. Approximately 30,000 a week. One third of which are black. Yep. One of two black pregnancies are aborted. That’s 400,000 a year. More than 1000 black human lives every day.
The left says that conservatives only want to talk about abortion and ignore poverty. But the collapse of values, the collapse of reverence for life, the collapse of family, is what drives poverty. The overwhelming number of families living in poverty today are single parent households. And they are disproportionately black.
Yet a Catholic university decides to keep a black conservative who once lived on welfare and who knows first hand of the abortion genocide off its campus.
But within the last year this same university which has slammed the door on me hosted liberal Al Franken and transgender male now female activist Debra Davis.
IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG HERE????
You know, national polls keep showing that our young people are moving further and further to the left. And this incident might tell us a little of why.
A Gallup poll of recent days shows that in a match-up between pro-abort Barack Obama and pro-life John McCain, Obama wins by twenty points among voters 18-29.
This is the Barack Obama who for twenty years has gone to the Trinity United Church of Christ and listened to his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, spew venom about America. The Obama who condemned the Supreme Court’s decision banning partial birth abortion. The same Obama who National Journal rated the single most liberal Senator.
There are 42 million young Americans in the 18-29 age bracket. And yet it is a great battle to let these young people, who are our nation’s future, hear both sides of today’s important issues?!
This imbalance of discourse feeds into the problem that when you lose a sense of what something’s worth, you’ll throw it away. I’m afraid that our young people are losing a sense of what freedom is and what it is worth and I’m afraid many are ready to throw it away. If they don’t learn about real American values at our own universities, where will they learn?
Over ten years ago, I founded the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) to fight the left, to fight the welfare state and to fight poverty with a message of traditional values and limited government.
PLEASE HELP ME KEEP MY COLLEGE SPEAKING TOUR AND MY ORGANIZATION ALIVE AND VIBRANT
ONCE TO EVERY MAN AND NATION!!
This past Sunday, Colorado Personhood sponsor, Kristi Burton spoke at a Power Invasion rally for life.
Kristi spoke of a beautiful hymn that animates her life.
Praise be to God for homeschooling parents who plant such vibrant seeds of
life and liberty in the hearts of our young people.
Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision, offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever, ’twixt that darkness and that light.
Then to side with truth is noble, when we share her wretched crust,
Ere her cause bring fame and profit, and ’tis prosperous to be just;
Then it is the brave man chooses while the coward stands aside,
Till the multitude make virtue of the faith they had denied.
By the light of burning martyrs, Christ, Thy bleeding feet we track,
Toiling up new Calv’ries ever with the cross that turns not back;
New occasions teach new duties, time makes ancient good uncouth,
They must upward still and onward, who would keep abreast of truth.
Though the cause of evil prosper, yet the truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold, and upon the throne be wrong;
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above His own.

DOWN TO THE WIRE!!!
Final Push for the Babies
Personhood Update from Keith Mason
Just a quick note to all of my fellow laborers on behalf of unborn babies. We are doing amazingly well! With a final, big effort from all of us in the next 31 days, we will see tremendous results!
I know you have given so much of your time and energy to putting personhood on the ballot so far – and believe me, I could not be more amazed by what you've accomplished. Kristi and her family have said they are overwhelmed by the hard work you've invested into this ballot initiative, and I am honored to be working with you!
I do have a major request. We have 31 days left. If you have contributed an hour a week to getting signatures, please consider contributing two hours. Or maybe more, Sandra a few weeks ago spent 4 hours in front of King Soopers in Wheat Ridge and collected 350 SIGNATURES!
You can make a huge difference just by stepping out with just a little of your time.
I am pouring myself into this effort because on May 13th I don't want to say "I could have done more". What about you?
We need every available volunteer getting signatures at every available moment! Your efforts will ensure that Personhood is on the ballot. If we all push ourselves, and do even more in the next few weeks, we can be successful!
So many people said we could not do this. Planned Parenthood will be stunned when they see what we've done, getting 76,000 signatures, with just a grassroots coalition!
I am happy to report to you that we are almost there!
If you can commit to any more time giving signatures in this last little bit of time we have, it could make or break the campaign. I don't want to miss the mark by just a few thousand signatures! We are putting out a call – anyone who possibly can invest any more time into Personhood, please do it! Again, we are almost there!
The best weekday places to petition are:

KOMEN GAVE PLANNED PARENTHOOD $700K
Like they need it!
When Colorado Right to Life met with Komen officials
in 2006, this extraordinary admission was mostly met
with silence in main stream media. Bob Enyart Live gave the meeting
the coverage it deserved:
"Colorado Right To Life: has an extraordinary meeting with the Denver chapter of the Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Leslie Hanks, Phillip Hendrix, Dr. Joel Brind, former Komen analyst Eve Sanchez Silver, and pro-life leader Jo Scott confront Komen officials on the link between abortion and breast cancer. As transcribed from a recording of the meeting, CRTL asked, "Why aren't women being told about the most preventable risk factor?" to which Komen's Dana Brandoff answered, "We tend to focus on the cure... we're focusing our energies on that, rather than the preventative."
Thanks to Life Site News and STOPP for continuing to expose the lies!

LRF Italia Discusses Laogai, Tibet, and Organ Harvesting in Two Conferences
(Laogai Research Foundation Italia, 4/8/2008)
"The Laogai, public executions and the sale of organs for profit in Communist China, Beijng 2008 - The Genocide Olympics, and repression in Tibet" - Cisterna, Friday, April 4, 2008
For years foremost China dissident, Harry Wu has warned of the rampant murder of political dissidents for the harvesting of their organs to sell to wealthy westerners.
Pray the above article receives the proper attention with world focus on China because of the pending Olympics.
Colorado RTL brought Mr. Wu to Colorado in the late 1990s when then Governor Bill Owens was having a trade fest with China's Prime Minister Zhu Rongji. The videos of organ harvesting trade with China were given to members of the Colorado General Assembly, to no avail.

Expelled? Go to the movies!
American Right To Life Movie Marathon
American RTL members in Denver are holding a movie marathon viewing every showing on opening weekend of Ben Stein's new movie, Expelled – No Intelligence Allowed, Friday through Sunday, April 18-20.
According to the group's website, ARTL president Brian Rohrbough was contacted by the executive producer of Expelled, John Sullivan, one year before the start of production. In a three-hour meeting Rohrbough encouraged the filmmakers to expose Darwinism's connection to genocide, including Nazism and other social ills. A sneak preview attended by ARTL members confirms that Ben Stein and the Expelled producers have courageously linked the teaching that men are advanced animals, to the outcome of men behaving like animals.
"A number of school shooters from Columbine to Finland justify their own wicked actions as being authorized by evolution and 'natural selection' giving them the right and even the obligation, as Klebold and Harris said in their basement videos, to murder those they deem weaker or inferior," said Mr. Rohrbough, whose son Danny was murdered at Columbine High School. "After the Rocky Mountain News ran the autopsy finding that one of the murderers wore to the crime a t-shirt that read, 'Natural Selection,' the paper's editors showed themselves to be deceptive by reporting, "It is not clear what the shirt's inscription referred to, but there is a video game with the same name."
UrbanDictionary.com accurately quotes one of the Columbine murderers as writing that they would "kick natural selection up a few notches."
"American Right to Life proudly promotes Expelled and encourages pro-lifers nationwide to see this historic film on opening weekend," said Steve Curtis, vice president of ARTL and former chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. "Fish eat other fish, polar bears cannibalize their young; if man is an advanced animal, there is no right to life in a dog-eat-dog world," said Curtis. "An Intelligent Designer, a.k.a. God, created us in His image and by His hand even the tiniest human has the inalienable right to life."
According to the group's website, AmericanRTL.org, "American Right To Life's movie marathon, Expelled? Go to the movies! will be held at Colorado's Arvada Olde Town 14 movie theater from Friday April 18 at 11 a.m. until the last showing Sunday evening, with some of our members seeing Stein's Expelled about a dozen times on Opening Weekend! If you're in Colorado, please pick a convenient show time to visit our marathon and watch the movie with our members!" Columbine dad Rohrbough adds, "Expelled is opening on 800 screens. Pro-lifers can ask additional theaters to run the movie to hold their own marathons. The best minds in the world that promote evolution appear in this movie and we want everyone to see their superstitions and myths about mankind's origins."

Wilberforce Descendant Endorses Colorado Human Life Amendment
DENVER, CO (April 9, 2008) Colorado for Equal Rights campaign has picked up the endorsement of the great great grandson of William Wilberforce, Father Gerard Wilberforce.
The Colorado For Equal Rights Campaign Director, Keith Mason, spoke with Fr. Gerard Wilberforce last week, explaining that "We are going to keep fighting until we protect all of these little ones."
In answer to Mason's comments, Fr. Wilberforce replied "Yes, that is just the way William Wilberforce would have done it."
Wilberforce has told campaign officials that he would be willing to help out the campaign, and he sent this statement to all of the volunteers working on the campaign:
"Two hundred years ago William Wilberforce campaigned on behalf of slaves who were not treated as human beings. Today society does not treat the beginnings of human life as persons who demand our respect. Abortion is widespread because people do not consider the unborn to be worthy of legal protection."
He continued, "Those who are working for the rights of the unborn could therefore look to the example of the abolitionists and take heart. It may not come immediately but good people will eventually change the law. People will then look back and ask how it was that abortions were ever committed. in the same way we look back in horror at the evils of slavery. God bless all of you who work for no reward only to see justice prevail for those last able to defend themselves." -Gerard Wilberforce, great great grandson of William Wilberforce.
William Wilberforce was an evangelical Christian who headed the British Parliamentary campaign against the British slave trade, and was largely responsible for abolishing the British slave trade.
"As we are in our final weeks of getting signatures, Fr. Wilberforce's encouragement is an exciting jolt that will encourage our volunteers as they work to put personhood on the ballot," said Kristi Burton, Spokesperson for Colorado For Equal Rights.
She continued "I am so thankful for Father Gerard Wilberforce's support. He serves as an inspiration to all of us, just as his great great grandfather did. "
Colorado for Equal Rights is a statewide grassroots organization of committed pro-life activists. Colorado for Equal Rights is sponsoring the Human Life Amendment to the Colorado Constitution, stating "(t)he term "Person" or "Persons" shall include any human from the time of fertilization." The Human Life Amendment initiative is currently working to gather petition signatures to appear on the November 2008 ballot.

TERRI WARRIOR TACKLES CLINTON LEGACY!
How many are ever given this kind of favor from above?
"I stood about 15 feet away. I prayed she would call on me. I stood with the sun in my eyes for probably 45 minutes, raising my hand. She called on my raised hand. I asked:
“The House of Representatives impeached William Jefferson Clinton
on counts of perjury and obstruction of justice. He was held in contempt of a
federal court, was fined and disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas, and
resigned rather than be disbarred before the Supreme Court.
All of these were a consequence of his blatant lies under oath to a federal
Miss Clinton, your mother apologized, covered up, and lied for the lies that the
President told under oath. How then can the Hilllary campaign say the Monica Lewinsky
affair was just a personal matter, when candidate Clinton covered up perjury and committed obstruction of justice for the President of the United States?”

THE REPORT FROM WASHINGTON
Today's unborn blacks: More vulnerable than slaves
Exclusive: Ellis Washington uses Frederick Douglass' 1852 speech to condemn abortion
By Ellis Washington
Power concedes nothing without a demand.
~ Frederick Douglass
While I fully realize that the subject of abortion is an unspoken blasphemy in polite company, nevertheless during this political season I feel compelled to address this most critical issue of modern times. Why? Like slavery, abortion gives one person the power to terminate the life of another under the color of law.
Chattel slavery, or the idea that one man can own and sell another person as his own personal property, was outlawed in 1865 by force of arms in the Civil War and de jure (by law) via the 13th Amendment. Nevertheless, American society has a modern form of slavery that in my opinion is vastly more clandestine and diabolical than America's 400-year experiment with "that peculiar institution" – abortion.
How Sweet the Sound
I've been savoring Eric Metaxas' superlative book
Amazing Grace since a friend gave it to me for my
last BD. I can't say enough about how well written this book is
and how much one can learn beyond the details in Amazing Grace, the movie.
Imagine my delight when World Net Daily my favorite news source, published this
Wilberforce descendant condemns abortion
'We are no better than those slave traders'
Posted: March 31, 2008
10:08 pm Eastern
A great, great grandson of successful anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce is addressing the contemporary "slavery" issue, abortion.
In a commentary on a United Kingdom blog, Gerard Wilberforce wrote he believes his ancestor, who campaigned for years for the end of the transatlantic slave trade in 1807, which led to the abolition of slavery through out British Empire in 1833, would consider the two activities similar.
"I am often asked what would be the campaigns Wilberforce would be fighting if he were alive in 21st century Britain. I believe that there would be a number of different issues – among them human trafficking and the scourge of drugs. But almost certainly at the top of the list, would be the issue of abortion," wrote Gerard Wilberforce, a Catholic priest.
"As the Human Fertilization and Embryology bill comes before Parliament over the next few weeks, the opportunity presents itself to amend the abortion act," he continued. "With the number of abortions having reached 200,000 per year in the UK alone, the time is right to tighten up the law that was designed to protect women by ending illegal abortion, but never to allow such a high degree of deprived life."
He said there are "great similarities" between the preborn child and the status of African slaves 200 years ago.
