Amendment 62, Epilogue




The condition of a 27-year-old woman who was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the Stapleton neighborhood has been upgraded from critical to serious condition, authorities say.

The improvement comes a day after Laura Gorham's condition worsened to critical condition on Friday, said Kalena Wilkinson, spokeswoman for Denver Health Medical Center.

Gorham's family released a statement today asking for help in finding the hit-and-run driver.

“Personhood would have given justice to this child. We lost the election but truth always gets the last word,” Bob Enyart with Colorado Right to Life said.

"Enyart says Colorado Right to Life will use this case as an example when they try again in the legislature and through ballot initiatives."

Our hearts are in solidarity with the Gorham family in their tragic loss.

Treated with Dignity and Respect


I had the great privilege of meeting Monica Migliorino Miller at Notre Dame when the current resident of the White House was given an honorary degree in 2009.

Her passion for babies in the womb is inspiring and was a sight to behold as she broke through police lines,in order to show the ND graduates families the horror the speaker they were about to hear advocates. This month her organization put their passion into practice by helping to see that tiny baby bodies, found in the trash in Michigan, were given a proper burial.

Monica Miglioriono Miller states: "The abortion clinic treated these human beings as if they were trash. Pro-lifers buried them--and treated them with dignity and respect. In this we see the clash of two cultures--and it matters which one shall prevail. This grave is a place of justice and healing--healing for all the mothers and fathers who grieve the loss of their aborted child. But this grave is also an indictment--an indictment against a nation that allows this sort of atrocity. The voices of these unborn children cry out to us from the ground that covers them now. Let us hear their plea and end the injustice of abortion."

Monica's heroics have, unbelievably, made the New York Times in this remarkable piece.

Thank God for the remnant in our society who still hold that every human life is sacred with infinite worth in God's sight!

California Civil Rights Foundation's Media Release on Amendment 62


MEDIA ADVISORY

For Immediate Release

Union City, California (Wednesday, November
3rd, 2010) – Colorado Amendment 62 Defeated.

Walter Hoye, Founder and President of the California Civil Rights Foundation, responds to the recent defeat of Colorado’s Amendment 62.

“So pure and powerful is the question of the ‘identity of humanity’ that I bow before our Lord in abject humility understanding that the morality of the 21st Century will depend on how we answer this profound question. The zero-sum activity of winning or losing at the ballot pales in comparison to pondering the profound question Personhood poses. Promoting
Personhood in the public square is always a win because ears will have heard and minds will have been challenged with a truth that remains largely hidden in the darkness that now engulfs our country and even our world. Precisely because Personhood
prompts the discussion of what it means to be created in the image of God, in a society that lives with legalized abortion on demand and the murder of over 53 million of her children, she always presents a victory for humanity.”

Hoye goes on to echo the words of Theodore Parker, a reforming American minister of the Unitarian Church, an Abolitionist, and a Transcendentalist who in his 1853 "Of Justice and the Conscience" said:

"I do not pretend to understand the moral universe; the arc is a long one, my eye reaches but little ways; [While] I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight. I can divine it by conscience. And from what I
see, I am sure it bends towards justice."

Amen Mr. Parker.

Personhood is what the Pro-Life movement looks like victorious.

Juda 4 Praise has a word for No on 62's Fofi Mendez

Change?
juda myers 11.4.2010



Well we saw change November 2, 2010. When people actually get up and do something, things do change. There is a silent majority that seems to hold everything inside until they can’t take it any longer. But what if people continually did what is right and made an effort to keep this country as the founders intended – as God intended?




The sign above is what anti Personhood people held. These people are against people like me because I was conceived in rape.They use my situation as an excuse to kill. Next time I want to gather a huge crowd of people conceived in rape to stand there with signs that ask if we deserve the death penalty for the crime of our fathers.

Moriarty ~ Sophistication or substance ~ Amendment 62

Sophistication or substance?

By Michael Moriarty
web posted November 1, 2010

The coming election – perhaps the most important mid-term election in American history – is only five days away. At the time of this article's appearance, it will only be one day away.

The polls predict not just a landslide victory for the Republicans but an "avalanche".

However, I am only interested in the outcome of Colorado's Amendment 62 bestowing "personhood" upon gestating infants at their creation and not upon a grotesquely arbitrary decision called the third trimester of gestation.

"Sophistication."

That is the only word that can describe the Progressive rationalizations for what amounts to murder. Progressives are just more "sophisticated" than the rest of us. To be "sophisticated" is to be Progressive.

The most sophisticated city in the world has, for the most part, been Paris, France. Despite the vibrancy of New York, the most sophisticated New Yorkers, from the readers of Vogue to those worshippers of the New York Times, generally hold Paris on a higher level than their own, limitlessly exciting city.

The real and, most significantly, the "Progressive" reason for that is the difference between the American and French Revolutions.

The American Revolution succeeded and out of it came the legendarily unsophisticated United States.

Colorado View Magazine profiles Personhood proponent v opponent


Voters this fall will once again be asked to decide a state constitutional amendment that seeks to define a person to give legal rights to an unborn child. In March, Colorado Amendment 62, called the Personhood Amendment, was placed on the ballot after the Secretary of State certified nearly 100,000 signatures in support. Backers say the ultimate goal is to overturn Roe v. Wade.

A similar measure was defeated in 2008, 73 to 27 percent. Unswayed, proponents are not only back but have tweaked the language to make the language broader. A person is no longer defined from moment of fertilization. Now a person is given rights at the beginning of biological development. Backers say this change offers protection for the unborn during such things as in vitro fertilization. It also could potentially prohibit birth control methods that prevent implantation in the uterus.

Working tirelessly in support and in opposition of this controversial amendment are two accomplished, articulate women. Both are veterans in the political arena; both are passionate and unwavering in their beliefs. And both have devoted decades trying to defeat what the other stands for.

Leslie Hanks. Watkins. Vice President of Colorado Right to Life. Co-sponsor of Personhood Amendment 62.

The first toe-dip into politics for Leslie Hanks came in 1986 when she was asked to run for PTA president at her kids’ school in the Bennet 29 School District. She was a stay-at-home mom who was going to college to earn a degree in English. She agreed to run not knowing of the fight that soon would change the course of her life.

Growing up in the Chicago suburbs, she says she was completely apolitical. Her father was a jazz musician, her mother a traditional housewife who sometimes felt restless in the domestic world. “My parents were both highly opinionated so I come by it naturally,” jokes the 59-year-old mother of two and grandmother of eight. She has been married to the same man 39 years. She is at once cheerful and relaxed, without a hint of the contentiousness that often swirls around her chosen causes.

I would go as far as saying, “How dare we not compare the Abortion Holocaust to the American Slave Trade" ?


Tough Questions Series – How Dare You Compare Abortion to The Holocaust or Slavery?

I have heard many people cry foul whenever any pro-lifer uses the Jewish Holocaust or slavery in America as a comparison to abortion. Many times at my talks someone will scold me during question-and-answer time, claiming to be offended that I would use such a comparison.

The problem they have is not really the fact that a comparison is being made to one of these horrific tragedies; after all, we build museums, memorials and reminders of what happened to make sure something like the Jewish Holocaust will never happen again. The problem really is that we have elevated what they consider to be a blob of tissue to personhood status.

"America's last chance: Amendment 62" ~ Michael Moriarty


By Michael Moriarty
web posted October 25, 2010

My regular readers know me well enough to comprehend my seriousness about the curse that the Supreme Court loaded on the back of America in 1973, with its Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion. Little did I know – historically challenged little me – that America's legalized abortion actually began in Colorado in 1967. Yup, the practice of murdering your own children with impunity began not 37 years ago, but 43.

That is half the length of time America took to finally end slavery.

Yup, Hollywood's Little Getaway Spot, with the ski trails of Aspen and the seven figure vacation homes, revolutionized America's very soul.Colorado did more to destroy America's "inalienable right to life" than even Dr. Evil and his Mini-Me have accomplished so far.

By that I mean, it was the elite, wealthy and influential of Colorado that actually began to beg for the arrival of a wannabe-Mao Zedong and his "Cultural Revolution" … or rather the "fundamental transformation of the United States of America."

Predictably, Mr. Moriarty has been slammed by the Democratic Underground for his admiration of America's Declaration of Independence. Of course, there's also the little problem of the Law and Order episode, Dignity with its echos of Personhood for pre-born babies in the womb.

As American RTL noted, "Cutter virtually quoted the co-sponsor of Colorado's 2010 Personhood Amendment, Gualberto Garcia Jones, who launched the statewide ballot initiative holding his 10-day-old son at a press conference and saying, "Two weeks ago, my son had less rights than a dog or a cat." Speaking to District Attorney Jack McCoy, Cutter says, "My God, cats and dogs have more rights than the unborn."

Vote YES on CO's Personhood amendment 62 for more beautiful "Beginnings"!!


Incredible photographer of life, Anne Geddes, has a new book, "Beginnings" which the Huffington Post is featuring. (HT, Jillstanek.com)

Imagine that and ponder why!

I'm personally thinking that she may be wanting to soften a crowd not typically baby friendly.

Who knows, but her photos have the unmistakable handprint of God on every page!!

What artistry!

What vision . . .

"I saw a photograph of a bird's nest, which was an advertisement for what I thought was a photographic exhibition at a small gallery in Sydney. When I arrived, it was a showing of real birds' nests. I was deeply moved by these little nests, their incredible beauty and fragility, and the mothering instinct at work -- the ingenuity and energy channeled into creating a safe place to conceal the young. Everything about them was just so nurturing. And I began to think about these miracles of nature that are concealed in a repeating pattern of secrete, store, burst forth in abundance -- seeds, bulbs, cocoons and the miracle of pregnancy.

When I saw the nests, everything began to flow again; everything came back. I felt inspired to start photographing again. I came out of the exhibit and phoned my husband, Kel, and said, "I need to do another book. I just saw these amazing nests." The whole "Beginnings" project started from there.

The creative intensity of the project pushed me into deeper and deeper territory, giving me something far richer than I could ever have anticipated. I sometimes had to change course within my vision. I think you have to be able to say, "Wait a minute, this is closer to what I wanted to say," and not be afraid to do that. The evolution of the project attracted me as an artist and was fulfilling in the sense that I became aware of being inspired to explore my vision in new forms."

Thank You, Anne for so perfectly revealing the MIRACLE that is new life!!

Pam Tebow, Mother of Heisman Trophy Winner, Endorses Colorado Personhood Amendment 62


Contact: Jennifer Mason, Personhood Colorado, 202-595-3500 ext. 1

DENVER, Oct. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pam Tebow, mother of five including Denver Bronco Tim Tebow, has endorsed Colorado's Personhood Amendment, Amendment 62, which is the only pro-life issue on the ballot anywhere in the U.S. in 2010.

"A child's right to life begins at conception, not at birth. From conception, all children are people, made in the image and likeness of God. Thus, I support the Personhood amendment and appeal to Colorado voters to vote "yes" on amendment 62," stated Pam Tebow, in support of Amendment 62.

Pam Tebow made headline news when she and Heisman-trophy winning son Tim Tebow appeared in a pro-life television ad during the 2010 Superbowl. The real headline story was not the ad, but Pam's refusal to let doctor's take her son's life while she was pregnant. The ad was sponsored by Focus on the Family, which has also urged Colorado voters to vote "Yes" on Amendment 62.

What started in Colorado ends in Colorado!


In April of 1967 Colorado became the first state to legalize the killing of innocent unborn children.
More than 40 years, and a million broken lives later, in 2010, Colorado has an opportunity to be the first to end it.
Amendment 62 recognizes that all life is precious and that every child should be protected by love and by law.

Please watch this powerful video and share it with everyone you know!


And in November, vote yes on 62, it’s the right thing to do!!

Before you were born I sanctified you;

Great Great Granddaughter of Slaves Speaks out for Personhood


The Amendment 62 campaign in Colorado, seeking to legally protect every baby in the womb from the beginning of biological development, has been blessed by the presence of Lori Hoye and her husband Walter Hoye during the recent months of our campaign.

They have so very generously shared the personhood vision with churches all over Colorado from the perspective of the founders of the California Civil Rights Foundation and Issues4Life.

Lori's thoughts about the need to protect each life made in God's image, are particularly poignant as her family history
explains.

As the great great granddaughter of former slaves, I am ETERNALLY grateful that Abraham Lincoln DID risk the Union, fought the Civil War, and Abolished Slavery.

It is very easy to talk about practicality, pragmatism and polls when you are not the one wearing chains and being beaten on a daily basis. It’s easy to be patient when you are free. It’s another thing entirely when you’re the slave. The nearly 240
years that passed until the Thirteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution officially ended slavery in 1865 were an eternity for the slave. The past 37 years are an eternity for the preborn child.

In the black community every 72 seconds a preborn baby is being brutally murdered in the womb of his or her mother. The baby wants to live and expects those who have the power to save him or her to do it RIGHT NOW. Abortion has taken more lives in the African-American community in 37 years (over 14 million) than slavery took from Africa in more than 400 years (12 to 13 million African forbearers ripped from their homes and forcibly transported to the Americas in a massive slave trade
dating from the 1400s).

State sued for “bias, lies” in describing Amendment 62


By Jack Minor

Organizers of Amendment 62, the personhood initiative, have filed a lawsuit against the state alleging “lies” about the measure printed in the Blue Book voting manual scheduled to be sent to voters. Sponsors of the amendment say this year's analysis of the proposal does not give voters a fair and balanced analysis of the initiative.

Dennis Hoshiko, a local onion farmer and one of the key figures behind the initiative, told the Gazette the state completely disregarded the detailed medical opinions provided by the group and instead relied totally on opinions from the opposition when printing the voter guide. Hoshiko said “the state’s allegation that the term ‘beginning of biological development’ has no basis in science is totally false. We provided them with multiple documents showing the term is well established in science.”

Gualberto Garcia-Jones, a co-sponsor of the amendment said "First, we were disallowed from including the text of the amendment in the 'Arguments For' section. The 'Arguments For' section is weak and does not include most of the arguments for Amendment 62. The Blue Book authors didn't stop there, however, and published several falsehoods about Amendment 62. Women could never be denied health care for miscarriages with the passage of Amendment 62, yet that is one of the lies our opposition is using as a scare tactic – and one of the lies propagated by the Colorado Blue Book.”

'Notre Dame 88' get green light to grill college chief
Obama protesters were arrested on university orders

Posted: September 23, 2010

A judge in Indiana has approved a request to depose a key school administrator by lawyers representing the "Notre Dame 88," pro-life activists who were arrested on orders from the Catholic university while they protested the school's speaking invitation to the devoutly pro-abortion President Barack Obama.

The move is key to the Notre Dame 88's defense, because when the famed university cracked down on the Obama critics, Notre Dame President John Jenkins issued a statement that all protesters were treated equally on campus.

However, William Kirk, former Notre Dame associate vice president for residential life who recently was dismissed, may have first-hand knowledge that the university previously allowed "gay" rights and anti-ROTC protesters to operate on campus without a permit and without any charges being filed, according to the Thomas More Society, which is working on the pro-life activists' defense.

The organization reports that Kirk had served the university for many years but "was abruptly let go after it became public that, while Notre Dame had arrested and vigorously prosecuted pro-life demonstrators, in prior years the university filed no charges against gay rights and anti-ROTC activists who also had protested on campus without permission."

The organizers behind a Colorado pro-life initiative scheduled for the November election today filed a lawsuit against the state over "lies" about the measure in the official voter manual.

The manual, or Blue Book, is prepared before each election by the Colorado Legislative Council and is intended, according to the state agency's website, "to provide voters with the text, title, and a fair and impartial analysis."

However, sponsors behind the state's Amendment 62, the only "personhood proposal" on any election ballot in the nation this year, say it is anything but fair and impartial.

Future football players of America ~ Choose Life!


Long time political activist and former Denver mayoral candidate, Steve Schweitzberger, blessed Colorado Right to Life today
with the gift of a fantastic batch of t-shirts sure to inspire some wonderful conversations during this our crazy political season in Colorful Colorado!

With Amendment 62 ~ the only personhood measure on the ballot in the country for 2010 ~ the climate for embracing life, is gathering strength daily.

This shirt says it all.

How many amazing future football players has Planned Parenthood sacked before they ever had a chance to see a football?

How many babies in utero today might be saved, if enough moms see this shirt before they choose PP to "solve" their current crisis?

Time will tell, but we pray that all of God's great gifts to our families will be embraced for the infinitely valuable persons that they are and will be ~ safe in their mother's wombs when Personhood is the law of the land!

Perpetuating racial genocide?


At last week's No on 62 pep rally for death, the same usual suspects gathered on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol to
bemoan how "dangerous" and "deceptive" personhood for "fertilized eggs" will be.

New on the scene, however, was a woman introduced as the Reverend Dawn Riley Duval. It would seem that she has been recruited to rebut the claims of chilling parallels between slavery and abortion that Amendment 62 spokesman, Pastor Walter Hoye, has been making all over Colorful Colorado. As founder of the California Civil Rights Foundation, Hoye has a deep abiding faith and vested interest in educating his people about the radical, racist and eugenic history of Planned Parenthood.



So it was especially jarring to hear Ms Duval begin her rant with, "This is the day that the Lord has made." One doesn't
anticipate hearing the name of Almighty God invoked at a pep rally for death.

Duval continued, "This deeply personal and painful moral decision is best left to a woman," said Rev. Dawn Riley Duval of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, "And her doctor and God!" she shouted to loud applause.

We must assume that this newest Planned Parenthood spokeswoman has not heard the statements of PP's founder, Margaret
Sanger
.

Of particular interest to the black community should be this disturbing message, ""We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."



Colorado Right to Life has a long history of sharing this kind of insidious racial profiling by the abortion industry. We brought
Reverend Clenard Childress to address the Ministerial Alliance in 2006 and while his message largely fell on deaf ears, he planted seeds and so Pastor Hoye has been warmly received by several prominent Black churches in Denver.

Pastor Hoye will be speaking at a prayer rally at Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church in Aurora on September 17, 2010 sharing his message of Persons not Property and Why we Can't Wait to legally protect everyone made in God's image.

We will be delivering the DVD Maafa 21 to Ms Duval's pastor, with the prayer that the message of how abortion is decimating the black race and carrying on the legacy of death and destruction of the slave master mentality, will be shared.

Should the church be receptive to learning why personhood is the key to equality of justice for all ~ born and unborn,
we'd welcome Dawn's fiery passion to protect her people from those who have targeted them for extermination.

Our soulless "leaders" have historical amnesia


Senator,

I'm not surprised that you voted with the pro-abortion Democrats at the blue book hearing for Amendment 62 yesterday, but I'm sad for you that you continue to stand against the God given, inalienable right to life of every member of the human family, from the beginning of his or her biological development.

History will not judge you well, Senator.

Those who compromised with slave holders to continue the lie that black Americans were property are looked upon with disdain today.

Martin Luther King understood and expressed so eloquently why slavery was so evil, "In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men - yes, black men as well as white men - would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked 'insufficient funds.'"

For over 40 years, the innocent, helpless baby in the womb has been considered property ~ and America has defaulted in her responsibility once again.

As Thomas Jefferson said, "The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the chief and only legitimate object of good government."

The tide is turning, Senator.

Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Colorado RTL Apologizes to Constituency for T Party Candidate


CRTL Apologizes to our Constituency

Prior to selecting a "pro-choice" running mate, and just hours after winning at the state assembly, Dan Maes told a pro-abortion media outlet:

“People are overestimating the personhood amendment. It simply defines life as beginning at conception. That’s it. Who knows what the intent of it is? They are simply making a statement. That is all I see it as. Do they have another agenda? I don’t know... Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, and people tend to forget that. I would not try to undo that.” -Dan Maes

In a private meeting shortly after making the above statement, Maes' said that he mispoke and "took it back." We at CRTL should have had more wisdom. We know that "pro-life" politicians typically tell us whatever they think is necessary to get our support. With Maes, we lowered our guard, hoping that a grassroots, tea-party-endorsed, self-proclaimed pro-personhood Republican candidate could be trusted. We see now that we were gullible. We apologize. With the fallen human nature, grassroots and tea-party candidates learn quickly, and can obviously be as deceptive to their base as any establishment politician. Dan Maes selecting a "pro-choice" Lt. Governor shows the apparent truth in his claim that he would not try to "undo" the bloodshed unleashed by Roe. Politicians who cared more about themselves then abolishing slavery held similarly hypocritcal positions. Yet Jesus said, Let your yes be yes, and your no be no. Even if Maes acknowledged the travesty of his LG selection, and dumped Williams, it is hard to see how he could be trusted. But still, for his own conscience' sake, he should do the right thing.

How emphatic does CRTL have to be before our "pro-life" politicians get the point? The only justifiable abortion policy is zero tolerance for child killing.

Why We Can't Wait!


Why We Cannot Wait

Featuring Guest Speaker
The Rev. Walter Hoye of Oakland, CA

Amendment 62 Pastor Prayer Rally August 6, 2010

Walter is touring Colorado delivering a powerful lecture entitled: “Why We Cannot Wait” in support of Colorado’s historic Amendment 62 effort to outlaw the killing of innocent children. He says…

“On more than one occasion it has been suggested to me… to wait.

The cause is just, but wait.
The cause is worthy, but wait.
The cause is righteous, but wait.

Yet I can’t wait. You see, my people are dying.”

• The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), report that since 1973 more Black Americans have been killed in the womb than the total number killed by all other causes combined.
• Certain Americans, (unborn children) are denied their full humanity, and like the slaves of the past they are treated as property, to be disposed of at the whim of another.
• The number of children legally murdered each day in America exceeds the number killed on Sept. 11, 2001. We came together then. We must come together now. We must not wait!

The humanity and dignity of pre-born babies is apparently too hot to handle for Ireland and most of America ~ for that matter.

"This pro-life advert was previously banned by the Irish government who said it was too 'political' for the airwaves. Now Project Truth, first produced by Youth Defence in 1995, has been set to some amazing footage of the unborn child in the womb. It's challenging, thought-provoking, beautiful and sad. Show it to your friends. Spread the message."

Thank you, Youth Defence, for capturing the beautiful imagery of this precious little one, made in God's image!

Can't think of a better illustration of why Colorado voters should proudly cast their ballot for Amendment 62 this November.

Does America have any remaining Statesmen?


On this the eve of our nation's coming celebration of Independence Day weekend, can we take a moment to reflect and pray for our current crop of "leaders" ?

As we reflect about the statesmen who put their lives on the line for the good of their posterity in writing and signing the Declaration of Independence, Whatreallyhappened.com describes the painful legacy of what standing for truth, liberty and justice for all can really mean.

"Have you ever wondered what happened to the fifty-six men who signed the Declaration of Independence? This is the price they paid:

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the revolutionary army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the fifty-six fought and died from wounds or hardships resulting from the Revolutionary War.

These men signed, and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor!"

Today we have hearings on the most recent Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, who by all appearances, will further destroy our liberties but who also has scandalously aided and abetted infanticide, according to Jill Stanek's expose of Kagan's PBA promotion scheme.

And so we have congressional hearings with great scandal hanging overhead like the oil oozing over the Gulf of Mexico ~
and nary a statesman willing to demand accountability and stand up to a woman nominee!

Please pray that as we ponder the meaning of all the blood, sweat and tears shed so that America could be what Reagan
reminded us in his famous 1974 Shining City Upon A Hill speech, "our nation is chosen by God and commissioned by history to be a model to the world"

Pray that someone in our Congress will rise to the occasion and once again lead us to be an America we can be proud of ~ one no longer aiding and abetting the shedding of innocent blood!

Falling Headlong


"Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out." Acts 1:18

Last night I drove to beautiful Boulder, Colorado to avail myself of an invitation to attend a reading of a new play ~ Falling Headlong ~ by playwright Ralph Tropf.

In the invitation, Mr. Tropf penned: "In Falling Headlong, the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade, an event that could possibly happen in the near future. Sara Pindar, an obstetrician in her first year of practice, disagrees with the new law. When Sara becomes pregnant, it takes a woman of faith to convince her that it is in the best interests of all for her to have her baby."

Ok, I must admit that I was easily duped by a ruse! The "woman of faith" line grabbed me, hook line and sinker and it was off to Boulder I drove.

Theater O is a bit of an Avante Garde venue - seating only 20 patrons, black curtain backdrop the only hint that it was a theater and not the warehouse in which we were seated. In typical Boulder fashion, the attendees were a diverse lot. The event was a reading of the play, in which one could tell they had rehearsed, but they read their lines and those attending were in actuality like a focus group ~ invited to give input.

Mr. Tropf and I spoke prior to my treck to la la land and he led me to believe we were seeking the same lofty goal ~ legally protecting the pre-born; at least that was my perception.

The play was interesting and although I cringed at many of the lines, as I hastily scribbled them on my program, I was amazed at the play's outcome in which the protagonist (a female infertility specialist with lots of pro-abort statements) chose life.

Most astonishingly afterwards during the feedback segment, a female from Boulder Valley Women's Center stood up and said she really liked the play! Since my initial reaction was mildly favorable, I was particularly perplexed.

Mr. Tropf sat down beside me immediately following the play to garner some input. I shared that it bothered me deeply that Sara persisted in telling the woman of faith, Mary, that her ectopic pregnancy was a "fetal mass" and not a baby. We also discussed whether the "woman of faith" and her husband were caricatures of sincere believers.



Ralph said he'd appreciate input by e-mail and actually gave me the script so I could give the dialogue deeper consideration.

In our subsequent e-mail communications, I must admit to feeling a bit betrayed.

Mr. Tropf shared today that legislation isn't the answer ~ as he claimed his play demonstrated. He insists changing hearts and minds is the real solution. I replied that we have been on that road for over 40 years and meanwhile 4,000 babies are dismembered daily!

While I laud his prescience in writing a play about the demise of Roe, I'm sad that he remains persuaded that "inalienable
rights" aren't and that the Word of God is negotiable.

Any discussion of life and death issues where a choice for life raises a round of applause from Boulderites makes me smile.

We are making progress!!

'She has poured mud all over my family's name'


The horrendous anti-semitic rant over the weekend by veteran White House Correspondent, Helen Thomas really has stunned the nation with the open hostility toward Israel shown so blatantly ~ up close and personal.

Today WND has an article that warms the heart about a Hearst family member's support of Israel and the people of Gaza.

Hearst heiress, Victoria responded quickly, "I've never heard any Hearst family member make an anti-Semitic remark, and none of them would be in agreement with Helen Thomas."

According to the WND article, Victoria Hearst is a lover of Israel and has founded Praise Him Ministries in Ridgeway, Colorado.

The Praise Him Ministries' write up of Victoria's work in Israel is so encouraging at a time when American's are cringing about the evil things happening to Israel and God's chosen people.

"Victoria sits on the board of Billye Brim Ministry/Prayer Mountain of the Ozarks in Missouri, and the advisory board of Voice of Refugees ministry in California. Victoria loves Israel and the Jews. She has been to Israel many times and helps Mayor Ron Nachman of the city of Ariel in Judea and Samaria with certain projects. She also assists the Jews of Gush Katif who lost their homes and livelihoods when they were forced out of Gaza in 2005. Victoria believes that all Christians need to support Israel and the Jews’ right to the land as GOD promised in the Bible."

"We wholeheartedly condemn what she said. The Hearst Corporation and the Hearst Family do not condone anti-Semitism in any way, shape or form. And we demand a heartfelt apology to the Jewish community around the world.'"

Now that Helen Thomas has today rightly retired, we can pray that Victoria will keep her in prayer as she undoubtedly needs Jesus, so that she will understand (before it is too late) why the Jews in Israel are precisely where God wants them to be.

Stand up principal deserves our support!!


"Oakwood Principal Sheila Tillett Holas was put on leave today, Thiel Mather said. The division began its investigation after The Pilot asked school leaders this week about the fetus dolls."

The anatomically correct, "squooshy" dolls which came with an information card explaining that even tho some don't
believe life starts until birth, the baby's life has been a journey for nine months prior to delivery.

"The teacher said that attached to the dolls was a card with a "pro-life" message and information on fetal growth.

Board member Kirk Houston Sr. said he examined one of the dolls. "Very life like, and it's a pro-life tool," he said. "To be quite honest, that is so incredible to me, that a staff member would do something so ... entirely inappropriate and unacceptable." He said board members "were all pretty dumbfounded."



If you agree that it is wise to help our young people understand the infinite value of pre-natal life, and that this effort is far more valuable in educating young people about human life and the biological development of the pre-born than Planned Parenthood's sexuality training in schools, please support Oakwood Principal Sheila Tillett Holas, who was put on administrative leave, please call the school and voice your dismay about this principal's treatment. Ask for the phone
number of School Board Chairman Stephen Tonelson. Let the Superintendant Stephen Jones know that you support
honesty in education.

All top CO GOP candidates supporting Personhood

In what can be called a rather stunning turn of events, one of Colorado's major newspapers yesterday reported that Colorado GOP candidates are beginning to absorb the import of the 125,000 signatures from Coloradans who see the God-given right to life as,"the first and only legitimate object of good government," to quote Thomas Jefferson.

"That’s a big contrast from 2008, when such top GOP people as then-U.S. Senate candidate Bob Schaffer and Colorado Republican Party Chairman Dick Wadhams, among others, were outspoken critics of the ballot question . . ."

"Political pollster Floyd Ciruli said the politics behind the ballot question, just like politics in general this year compared to 2008, are entirely different. That election was viewed as a big Democratic year, and polarizing GOP social issues such as abortion were unlikely to go anywhere, Ciruli said. This year the political landscape is more favorable to Republicans, and any issue that would bring conservative voters to the polls is something they need to embrace, he said."

To say this is remarkable is an understatement. Amendment 62 affirms the God-given right to life of our pre-born citizens as our founders intended. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

As co-sponsor of Amendment 62, I'm encouraged that our leading candidates are supporting our 100% ban.

Abortion is wrong because it's a baby; it's always wrong to intentionally kill a baby.

As a nearly 60 year old Grammy of 8 there are some things I'd just as soon not know about in life but when I do learn of EVIL perpetrated upon children ~ little girls, I JUST WANT TO SCREAM!!!!!!

Our nation is lost our way, our collective minds, our courage to stand up to evil, our founding principles!

Every day we read stories that confirm that our beloved liberty loving America, is being invaded with individuals who don't understand liberty and the rule of law ~ who want to bring their toxic laws and impose them upon us and we for some insane reason, take it.

And then we have our venerable institutions enabling the evil doers with out a whimper and even inventing convoluted excuses for helping them do their dirty work!!

This NYT story depresses me beyond belief.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has given their stamp of approval to disfiguring daughters.

As Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Geller, notes, "In what can only be construed as a complete loss of any semblance of goodness and morality in the name of multi-cultural poison, the most advanced civilization on the world is sanctioning......clitorectomies."

And, "They have issued a policy statement suggesting that doctors in the US perform this act of sick barbarity on girls to keep their families from sending them overseas for it. What next? Wife-beating seminars and its unintended benefits. Or a strip in Vegas for child marriages so they won't go overseas for the nuptuals."

Some of the article's accompanying photos indicate that the procedure is done in elementary schools ~ not sure if American taxpayers are footing the bill for this barbarism ~ yet!

Steamed yet???????? Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore?????

I looked for an associated photo about "FGM" and trust me they can't be posted. Let the AAP know this is beyond insane!! And demand that they stop disfiguring children!

Abortion for Child rape? Ezekiel 18:20


"The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son… the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself." –God, Ezekiel 18:20

26 April 2010 Vol. 12 / No. 12

The abortion movement has created a new class of victims: Pregnant pubescent girls who are being used to justify “therapeutic” abortion.

Steven W. Mosher

President

Why Abortion Does Not Solve Child Rape

by Colin Mason and Steven W. Mosher

There is no tragedy that the abortion movement does not seek to turn to its own advantage.

Consider the case of a young girl in Quintana Roo, Mexico, who was raped by her supposed stepfather and impregnated at the tender age of 10. After the girl's mother belatedly notified the authorities, she is now, at nearly 18 weeks of pregnancy, receiving proper medical care. The offending rapist has since been arrested.

We should all decry the horrific sexual abuse that led to this pregnancy. But the abortion movement, led by radical feminists, wants to go further. They claim that the girl should be given an abortion, even though the Mexican state in which she lives, Quintana Roo, forbids all abortions after 90 days gestation. The underlying problem here, they insist, is that Mexican girls are not properly informed of their “right” to an abortion in case of rape before 90 days gestation, and that they are not allowed to receive one after that point. According to them, Mexico's abortion laws must be relaxed.

According to CNN, which in its story on this child rape only interviewed abortion advocates (See CNN s coverage of the story):

“This girl is much more than an isolated case," said Adriana Ortiz-Ortega, a researcher at Mexico's National Autonomous University who has written two books on abortion in Mexico, "and there is much more influence now from conservative groups that are trying to prevent the legalization of abortion.”…

Child protective services officials in Quintana Roo said in a statement last week that the girl and the fetus were in good health.

But Quintana Roo state legislator Maria Hadad said the girl's doctors aren't telling the whole story. She said continuing the pregnancy could cause severe mental and physical health problems for the girl. "It's not just a high-risk pregnancy. It's a pregnancy that puts the girl at risk," Hadad told Mexican broadcaster Channel 10 in Chetumal, Mexico.

This girl has surely been horrifically damaged by what has been done to her, but will subjecting her to an abortion—as Maria Hadad advocates—somehow begin to “repair” this damage? Obviously not, as any person who is truly concerned about the welfare of the girl would conclude. It would only add tragedy to tragedy. And why would Hadad attack the girl's doctors, going so far as to suggest that they may be involved in a cover up? The reason is that Hadad and others like her are not the least bit concerned about the girl as a person. The victim is only a political tool, whose pain can be commoditized to advocate the legalization of abortion on demand. That there is another tiny person involved does not even enter into their calculations.

The political gamesmanship around this case distracts the public from the underlying problem: the family breakdown and pedophilia that allowed a young girl to not only be raped, but also impregnated by her supposed “step-father.”

According to Christine De Vollmer, president of the Latin American Alliance for the Family, a girl this young was unlikely to become pregnant from a single instance of rape. It is common, De Vollmer said, for “everybody to live in the same little house and sleep in the same bed. And of course all kinds of things happen there, unfortunately including to children. As the bodies of these little girls are stimulated, they begin to ovulate and become pregnant at some point.” As far as the so-called “stepfather” is concerned, this is often just a man who lives in the home with the mother and her children, “without any serious commitment.”

According to De Vollmer, the legalization of abortion will only serve to further enable child rape, since “the visible consequences (of rape) will be taken away. It would be more objective, engaging, and caring to prevent or correct these very common and dangerous situations of promiscuity to young girls before it's too late. How can politicians rend their garments over these pregnancies and at the same time turn a blind eye to the sexual abuse that goes on daily in broken homes? If nothing is done to stop the abuse, it can only end in pregnancy.”

Carlos Polo, head of PRI's Latin American office, noted to CNA that the abortion lobbyists are using such tragedies to advance abortion on demand. These activists are “absolute vultures,” who seize upon such cases for their propaganda value, arguing that only way to save the lives of women and girls in such circumstances is to “legalize so-called ‘therapeutic abortion.’” Polo said to PRI that “they care nothing about the girl herself, and abandon her as soon as they are done using her.”

The proper approach to such tragedies involves a consistent ethic of life. The crime of abortion cannot cancel out the crime of rape, as the radical feminists in effect argue. The rape can never be undone, nor can the girl ever return to her prior innocent state.

Yet the innocent human life inside her womb—however sad the circumstance under which it was conceived—can be preserved and protected, as well as the girl herself.

Only a consistent ethic of life will insist on the right of prepubescent girls not to be sexually abused; at the same time it will trumpet the right of a tiny unborn human to live.

Any other position betrays them both.

Response to Eagle Forum and Concerns about Personhood


Hello from Colorado Right To Life! If you're a delegate at a Colorado County Assembly tomorrow, please feel free to print out a few dozen copies (for a better formatted copy click here) of the following and bring it to your county assembly.

Dear Pro-Life County Delegate,

Please support the Personhood Amendment #62! The most fundamental right recognized by our Constitution is the God-given right to life. It is government’s foremost duty to uphold the right to life of all innocent human beings, without exception. The Personhood Amendment – Amendment 62 on your November ballot –recognizes the right to life of unborn children from the beginning of their biological development as a human being.

Forty states currently are following Colorado's leadership and trying, through legislation or ballot initiatives, to get Personhood recognized for the unborn child. This has transformed the pro-life movement and given it new energy! For the first time in recent history, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and we may see abortion prohibited in the relatively near future.

Unfortunately, many politicians, including Republicans, and even some pro-life groups fear losing control of the agenda. They are trying to smother the Personhood movement in its crib. You may see an Eagle Forum flyer here today, spreading misleading statements.

They mean to discourage pro-lifers by pointing out that our 2008 measure only received 27% support – the first time any state has ever voted on Personhood. They say we should not try again. What successful social movement has ever given up after its first try? What if the anti-slavery movement had quit at their first setback? What if Britain had surrendered to Hitler because victory seemed impossible? It's not leadership to say, “We tried once and failed, so we should stop.” In 2008 conventional wisdom held that only one out of eight people would vote for a total abortion ban. Yet in our first time on the ballot we received over 600,000 votes, more than doubling what was expected, in a state that had just elected a pro-abortion governor and president. With a well-run campaign, in this non-presidential election year, where just some Personhood voters bring another voter to the polls, we could win. Of slavery, the Holocaust, and abortion, we're now at two down and one to go!

The anti-personhood flyer claims pro-abortion groups are “enriched” by getting to fight the Personhood amendments in several states. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood don't see it that way. They're suing to keep Personhood amendments off the ballot in Missouri, Alaska, and Nevada, and they've announced that they might sue here in Colorado. (We're ready for them if they do.) And Mississippi has already certified their state's Personhood Amendment to be on the ballot, and signatures are being collected by the hundreds of thousands in Florida and California and elsewhere. Further, the pro-abortion group NARAL put Personhood USA, parent group of one of our sponsors, on their national Hall of Shame! What an honor! They fear what we can see: that Personhood has ignited a broad base of grassroots activity with more being done to stop abortion than any time in the last twenty years!

The “pro-life” opponents of Personhood claim “it’s not the right time,” but it’s never the wrong time to do the right thing. They say they want to back Personhood “eventually,” but the US Supreme Court is not yet “ready” to support a pro-life measure. This admission comes after decades of their efforts to change the court, which admission is proof from their own mouths that their strategy is utterly failing. Republicans have nominated the majority of the federal judiciary, and the federal courts are overwhelmingly pro-abortion, so we need a new, direct strategy of teaching the public and our politicians the difference between right and wrong. After decades of electing pro-life presidents, there is not a single Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court who has ever once advocated the right to life of the unborn child. So National Right To Life has never been able to claim the $10,000 offered them for simply naming a single pro-life Supreme Court Justice. That check is already written and remains un-cashed in the office of the Colorado-based American Right To Life.

Eagle Forum points to a memo by National Right To Life attorney James Bopp, which claims they fear a challenge to Roe v. Wade now might “make things worse.” Fear never won a fight. Fifty million dead children and they are afraid to pursue victory because things might get worse? That's like giving in to terrorists because we don't want to make them mad. Tragically, National Right To Life's general counsel tried to compromise the Republican Party platform by modifying it to support embryonic stem cell research, which is lethal experiments, on the tiniest children, little boys and girls just like the snowflake children, the adopted frozen embryos who themselves are the proof that these are precious little children. Thank God that National Right To Life's attorney failed.

That failed strategy, the old pro-life approach, of electing politicians who are pro-life, who will appoint judges who are pro-life has failed because we didn’t have “quality control” and all our candidates, without opposition from NRTL, openly admitted that they would ignore abortion when nominating judges. And the proof is in the pudding, along with the poison, of scores of pro-abortion judges that we have unwittingly put on the bench. We need to teach our politicians that there is an actual right to life (i.e. Personhood)! We need to insist that they appoint judges who acknowledge the God-given right to life of each child. Where we stand right now, we don’t need “one more pro-life justice” – we need five! That old strategy has proved an utter failure.

What’s more, we’ve been teaching the American public the wrong lessons. When we say “the unborn child has a right to life!” and then turn around and promote laws to protect some babies, but not others, the American people rightly detect hypocrisy! Footnote 54 of Roe v. Wade ruling (which tragically was written by a Republican Justice, Harry Blackman, and passed by a Republican majority) points out this very thing – that you cannot say the unborn child is a Person, and then say there are some circumstances when that innocent Person can be killed. That hypocrisy was cited as the reason why abortion was decriminalized– because existing "pro-life" laws actually didn’t recognize unborn children as Persons. But the Roe v. Wade decision itself also said that if a law were passed to recognize the Personhood of the unborn child, then the Supreme Court would have to protect unborn children under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment!

Personhood is a legal strategy, aimed at that "loophole" in Roe. But more than that, Personhood is a social movement, trying for the first time in 30 years to convince the American public that there exists an actual, God-given right to life for innocent children – no exceptions! Imagine the outcry if a massive body of citizens cried out to stop the slaughter, and the courts or politicians stood by and did nothing! They cannot. Personhood will force the politicians and the courts to change – if we insist our politicians support Personhood, then eventually the courts will follow.

Some defeated folks claim we have no power to change things, and we must accept the world as it is. They have no hope for victory, and they want you to abandon hope also. Their reasoning is all based on political calculation and conventional wisdom. But they forget that Christian social movements changed the world by relying on God’s wisdom! Remember the anti-slavery movement! Remember the civil rights movement! These were not secular in nature – these movements were Christian at their core! They dared to believe God would help them, and they changed the world!

That’s the promise of Personhood. In 2008 Colorado launched this strategy, and in 2010 there are 40 states following the example of our first “failure!” We’ve just now set out! So please support the pro-life Personhood Amendment 62 resolution! We must press forward and not look back!

Press forward with us! Personhood for the unborn child – NOW!!

Our federal judiciary crisis!


Colorado RTL is informing pro-lifers, politicians and candidates of a crisis among the federal judiciary. For 35 years, pro-lifers have hoped that by electing pro-life presidents such as Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and George W. Bush, America would get judges who support the God-given right to life of the unborn. Justices, who we all hoped were pro-life, have made it increasingly clear that they are not.

Antonin Scalia has publicly stated that he would strike down any law that prohibited abortion in all fifty states, and Clarence Thomas has ruled that the public has the right to decide to legalize the killing of unborn children. Sadly, not even one of the seven current U.S. Supreme Court Justices nominated by Republican presidents support the right to life of the unborn.

Further, our pro-life presidents have nominated sixty percent of the U.S. federal judiciary, and yet the judiciary utterly rejects the right to life of the unborn. Also we should remember that the pro-abortion Roe v. Wade decision was written by a Republican Justice and passed by the Republican majority on the U.S. Supreme Court, and abortion was legalized in Colorado by Republican governor John Love in 1967.

Colorado RTL is educating pro-life politicians and candidates to the sobering judicial crisis because it tells us that the status quo strategy of regulating abortion over the last decades is leading to a judicial culture exactly the opposite of what the pro-life movement had expected. When we ask judges to uphold abortion regulations, that very request moves "our own" judges to accept that the government has the right to regulate the killing of children, which they do by upholding the pro-life movement's own initiatives.

Thus Colorado RTL advocates enforcement of the God-given right to life and promotes the Personhood strategy to end legalized abortion in America!

Denver Examiner shows horror of abortion

One reason abortion prevails in America has been the media black out of the images of the suffering babies being killed. Unlike the images of suffering animals which undoubtedly raise big $$$$ for the Humane Society, pre-born infants images are kept in the main stream media lock box.

For years front line rescuer, Jo Scott, stood alone in her determination to show abortion minded moms the reality of what they were about to do.

The pro-life industry squawked that the images tainted the "professional image" of their leaders in their ivory towers. Perseverance paid off and now a msm outlet has used this image of how a saline abortion scalded this tiny one, ending his or her life.

Thank you, Examiner for showing a glimpse of abortion's cruelty!

Personhood - Abortion may soon be illegal in Colorado

April 7, 7:28 PM
Denver Headlines
Examiner Brian Smith

Personhood would define a baby as person from the moment of conception.




"The Colorado Personhood amendment will be on the ballot in 2010," says Jo Scott (avid Personhood supporter). "That is no thanks to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office. In order to get the Personhood amendment on the ballot in Colorado , 76,000 signatures were needed by late January. 79,648 signatures were turned in on time."

On March 4, the Secretary of State disclosed that 20.63% of the 79,648 signatures submitted by Personhood Colorado were invalid.

The signatures were thrown out because of a recently implemented law prohibiting Colorado notaries from stating “personally known” on a petition as a valid ID. The new law was literally unknown to the notaries in the state. Even the Secretary of State, Bernie Buescher, was unaware of the law. Although a spokesman for the state says the law is clear, it is not the citizen’s duty to train notaries how to do their jobs. A lawsuit is currently being considered by Personhood Colorado to vindicate the thousands of signatures that were tossed.

Shirking responsibility, Komen likes to focus on the cure!


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 Brandorff answered, "We tend to focus on the cure... we're focusing our energies on that, rather than the preventative."

The above quotes are from an October 2006, meeting that Colorado Right to Life, Eve Silver and Joel Brind, Ph.D ~ via phone ~
held with Denver's Susan G Komen leadership. We met just prior to their annual Race for the Cure event to which we have brought a truth truck message, "Breast cancer's most avoidable risk factor: Abortion," for the past 8 years.

We were discussing why Komen continues to give grants to Planned Parenthood in light of growing evidence about the
ABC link.

Now Jill Stanek has uncovered a deeper and more disturbing connection between Susan G Komen and Planned Parenthood.

"In my previous column, I revealed that the son of the founder of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is in a joint business venture with Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest....

Eric Brinker wrote me that only "20 of Komen's 122 US affiliates fund breast health services through local Planned Parenthood clinics."

Coincidentally, 2 of those 20, Komen Puget Sound and Komen Boise, fund Brinker's business partner, PPGNW (corroboration at links)....

All 5 PPGNW clinics involved with Komen either commit or refer for abortions. All dispense birth-control pills and emergency contraceptives....

A 2009 study... showed that the risk for women under 40 of contracting a newly identified and virulent form of the disease called triple-negative breast cancer rose by 320% if using hormonal contraceptives for a year or more."

Nattering nabobs of negativity!


WHEREAS, many pro-life citizens have become frustrated in their attempts to re-criminalize abortion since it was made legal in Colorado 43 years ago and in all 50 states 37 years ago; and

WHEREAS, one attempt to re-criminalize abortion is by introduction of citizen initiatives called "Personhood Amendments," which would purport to establish the fact that unborn babies are "persons" under the law and would therefore have protection under the U.S. Constitution; and

WHEREAS, this tactic has been thoroughly studied by the most knowledgeable and experienced legal experts of several pro-life organizations, including the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops; National Right to Life Committee; Eagle Forum; and Americans United for Life, a Chicago-based lawyers group and the oldest pro-life organization in the nation; and

WHEREAS, almost without exception, these legal experts warn that if such initiatives pass, they will certainly be challenged in the courts and, given the present make-up of the state and federal courts, they will be overturned, thus having diverted considerable time, effort, and resources on the part of the pro-life movement; and

WHEREAS, these same legal experts further warn that court rulings against such measures could also do more harm by more firmly entrenching the "non-personhood" status of unborn babies, thus having the opposite effect of the proponents of the initiatives; now therefore be it
RESOLVED, that the ____________ County Republican Party commend the intentions of those who wish to re-criminalize abortion, but urge such individuals and groups to reconsider their tactics in attempting to do so until enough state and federal officials are elected who will appoint and approve more judges who respect the value of human life; and be it further

RESOLVED, that the ____________ County Republican Party not divert its efforts to restore Republican values to American government and society by expending resources in support of the "Personhood Amendment" now being promoted in Colorado.

Jayne and Jim Schindler, Directors of Colorado Eagle Forum




Now here's a resolution which will bear fruit!!


WHEREAS, murdering the unborn is no different than murdering the already born; and

WHEREAS, God’s 6th Commandment states “Do not murder” period; now therefore be it

RESOLVED, that we will fight for the passage of Amendment 62 with every resource at our disposal, including the Blessing of Almighty God, to declare in the Colorado Constitution that the unborn are persons, from the beginning of their biological development, in order that their lives would be protected by love and by law.
