STANDING UP TO THE HOUNDS OF HELL!!
God bless Nadine!
British Abortion Advocates Target Pro-Life MP With Harassment Campaign
by Steven Ertelt
May 16, 2008
London, England (LifeNews.com) -- Vandalism and harassment are nothing new for pro-life advocates in the United States and now a leading pro-life member of the British Parliament is feeling the heat. Nadine Dorries, who is heading up a campaign to reduce late-term abortions, is the target of threats and harassment.
Dorries, a Conservative Party MP, is leading an effort to tighten the limit on late-term abortions from 24 to 20 weeks into pregnancy.
That has earned her significant publicity in the British media but also the scorn of extreme abortion advocates who want to allow late-term abortions.
Dorries tells the Bedford Today newspaper she has received threatening messages over the phone and in the mail and suspicious packages that she has reported to authorities.
The intimidation campaign has also included abortion advocates writing threatening messages on the windows of her home.
"The hounds of hell are chasing me," Dorries said in a post on her web site. "Scary, threatening angry and downright nasty phone calls. A message smeared on my window."
"This is all meant to destabilize or distract me. I have a very clear message to those who are attempting to do this - back off," she said, standing her ground.
"You will not stop me, you will not undermine me, you do not scare me. In fact, you make me much more determined than I ever was before. You give me strength," she added.
Dorries said she had received an email of support from Michael Clancy, the photographer who took the famous picture of Samuel Armas, who was operated on in surgery while he was still is his mother's womb.
Armas is show in the photo clutching the finger of his physician while he was still 21 weeks into the pregnancy.
Clancy encouraged Dorries to continue her efforts to protect unborn children who are victims of late-term abortions.

AND ANOTHER FOR LAUREN!
Dear Governor Minner:
The bottom line regarding the preservation of Lauren Richardson's life
is that she is a living person and guilty of no crime that would
demand her death.
Innocent life is not negotiable.
No lawyer's brief or report from a team of physicians can change the
radical truth that Lauren Richardson's Personhood is reason enough to
keep her alive. And not just "enough" but reason to call in the troops
to preserve, defend and protect Laurel's life from those who would
dare to extinguish her God ordained being, in our world. It is
Personhood that must be protected at every single level in the
continuum of life from birth, through frailty and old age. Personhood
is reason enough to honor the living with life. Personhood is reason
enough to honor the dead. Personhood raises the monuments to our
fallen, our wounded, our heroes. Personhood raises the infirmary and
the missionary and the nursing mother at 4 AM. Personhood is enough to
preserve the yet to be born, the yet to die, the dying and the ill.
Governor Minner, as you consider your options regarding the situations
before you as a governor of the persons living in your state, let
Lauren Richardson's Personhood recalibrate your mind, heart, spirit
and gumption sir; it is an easy decision to make, because Personhood
cannot be denied.
As the United States accepts the euthanization of its Persons, it
slips further and further down among its corpses, morally debased,
utterly hollow of spirit and conviction.
Be the strong voice against the lie. Stand up. Speak out. Lead:Save
Lauren Richardson's Personhood.
I will then join my voice to yours.

HERE'S ONE FOR LAUREN!!
Governor Ruth Minner
State of Delaware
Dear Governor Minner:
I am writing to you concerning the life of Lauren Richardson. I am asking that you intervene in order to save Lauren from what I fear is an imminent court order indicating that Lauren be starved and dehydrated to death.
I know that it may be easy for some people to say that in her current state her life is not worth living and therefore not worth saving, but I ask you to search your heart. There have been several people in recent years that have suddenly been awakened from comas. I ask you to consider that the same thing may happen for Lauren. She may wake up one day and ask to see her daughter.
What happens when this child grows up wondering how an entire state of people could stand by as they did Terri Schiavo--watching her mom starve to death?
As summer draws near I am spending more and more time enjoying bright skies and warm breezes. These are things…even in a coma that Lauren can feel. As I grow thirsty and guzzle down bottles of refreshing ice cold water, I can’t help but think that there are people who will go to great lengths to keep Lauren from receiving hydration. I can’t imagine being that thirsty.
I wonder if Lauren’s daughter will one day ask how so many people could stand by as her mother’s lips dried and cracked—her tongue swelling up—with dark sunken eyes planted in ashy, scaly, flaking, skeletal skin.
Governor Minner, I am begging you to do what others in your position, (and higher), were not courageous enough to do in Florida. I am asking you to use the power that your office holds to stand up for the life of this young girl.
In an era of “dead beat dads”, society presses fathers to step up to the plate to take care of their children. Lauren has a father who wants to do just that.
Please, grant Lauren Richardson a “stay of execution.” Please, allow her to live.

PUTTING FACES TO BURMA'S HORROR!
Winds of change coming to Myanmar
The horrific cyclone that killed thousands in Burma may change. A biography about a Catholic of Burma is a testament of faith and hope in the face of a brutal dictatorship sustained by torture and rape.
Thursday, May 15, 2008 By Lord David Alton
Throughout the 18 years since Aung San Suu Kyi has been under house arrest, the Burmese military regime have repeatedly promised and failed to deliver democratic change. These are the same secretive leaders who gave orders for Buddhist monks to be mown down in the streets and who are now impeding rescue efforts as hundreds of thousands of their countrymen die following the decimation of their homes and land by Cyclone Nargis. They are the same men who have ignored 28 United Nations General assembly and Human Rights Commission resolutions
