Medical Arrogance & Jahi's Reprieve ~


"Children’s Hospital Oakland has a very good reputation where I live in the Bay Area. But its public communication around the tragedy of Jahi McMath’s ”brain death” has been astoundingly insensitive, bordering on arrogant."

"The ruling comes a day after the girl’s relatives met with hospital officials and said the meeting did not go well. They said a doctor had told them that Jahi is “dead, dead, dead, dead” and that further medical care was no longer needed."

"The way in which hospital spokespersons discussed Jahi’s tragedy publicly also illuminates the arrogance among the technocratic class, who too often lose the forest for the trees when considering how public health policies they advocate impact real families."

This important article by Wesley Smith about Jahi McMath is one we all should read and contemplate, regarding the growing medical arrogance and callous disregard of patients in the era of Obamacare.  

http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/30/why-is-a-childrens-hospital-so-bent-on-cutting-off-jahi-mcmaths-life-support/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+lifenews%2Fnewsfeed+%28LifeNews.com%29

In my opinion, this kind of mistreatment of a patient and her loved ones is unconscionable and should have had people in the streets decrying the above insensitive remarks & mis-treatment of this vulnerable family.

Sadly, with Jahi's crisis happening during the holidays, public awareness of her plight hasn't been what it should have been.

As these photos show, the media was out in force but no protestors were in sight to question the "experts" and suggest that Children's Hospital treat the family with some dignity and respect.

Kudos to Wesley Smith for calling them out on their heartless public relations skills.

Praise God a judge has intervened and given Jahi a reprieve until January 7, 2014.

Please pray for a smooth and speedy transition to a facility that honors life and religious beliefs.

"Life Unworthy of Life"

13 year old Jahi is the focus of another case where the "experts" have decided and again weighed in on "Life unworthy of life".  

"Before Auschwitz and the other death camps, the Nazis had established a policy of direct medical killing - killing arranged within medical channels, by means of medical decisions, and carried out by doctors and their assistants. The Nazis called this program ''euthanasia.''

''Euthanasia,'' in its Greek derivation, means ''good death.'' The word is generally used for actions taken to facilitate the deaths of those who are already dying, and has long been a subject of debate for physicians, moral philosophers and the general public.

The Nazis, however, used the term ''euthanasia'' to camouflage mass murder. Just how the Nazis were able to do that has been made clearer by recent historical research and by interviews I was able to conduct during the last decade with German doctors who participated in the killing project.

Nazi medicalized killing provided both the method - the gas chamber - and much of the personnel for the death camps themselves. In Auschwitz, for instance, doctors selected prisoners for death, supervised the killings in the gas chambers and decided when the victims were dead.

Doctors, in short, played a crucial role in the Final Solution. The full significance of medically directed killing for Nazi theory and behavior cannot be comprehended unless we understand how Nazi doctors destroyed the boundary between healing and killing." 


Flash forward to Jahi's tragic situation as a result of a tonsillectomy gone bad ~ her devastated family has found a facility to give Jahi care, but now they must fight this heartless mentality.

"Children's Hospital Oakland does not believe that performing surgical procedures on the body of a deceased person is an appropriate medical practice," he said."


One can't help but reflect on the confusion surrounding "brain death" without remembering Terri Schindler Schiavo.  As Terri's brother so eloquently noted,

 "TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- Yesterday on This Week, George Stephanopoulos, in an interview with Senator Fred Thompson, commented that Terri Schiavo's autopsy proved she was "brain dead."  The New York Times also reported on this interview, repeating that the autopsy proved Terri was "brain dead."
This is patently false and Terri's family is requesting that the media immediately stop using this offensive and inaccurate expression to describe her condition.

Terri's brother, Bobby Schindler, says, "Brain death is an authentic diagnosis, not some catch phrase that should be loosely used based upon a 'summary of widespread response' or opinions that have been written about my sister.  We are requesting that the media take a few minutes to research the facts regarding Terri's case and, more importantly, her condition.  In doing so they would learn that not one doctor ever diagnosed Terri as being 'brain-dead.' This includes those who wrote her autopsy report. All of this information is easily available and accessible."

Rarely, if ever, mentioned in media reports are the more than 40 doctors' affidavits submitted to the court that either contradicted that Terri was in a so-called PVS or stated that she could have been helped with proper rehabilitation."


And Terri's sister Suzanne Vitadamo explained, "Terri was a daughter, a sister and a friend who was loved by many who feel the pain of her loss every single day. She was guilty only of having a brain injury and being dependent on others for her care. Sadly, in today's culture, this was not enough to save her from being killed," said Vitadamo.  "My sister fell victim to an ever-growing and dangerous 'quality of life' standard used to decide whether one should live or die."

This New Yorker article from 2001 raises some extremely important considerations which America desperately needs to revisit and strongly debate the ivory tower proclamations.

"It may be too much to say that the concept of brain death is an outright lie, but it is certainly less than the truth. Like many of technology’s sublime achievements, organ transplant, for all its promise, also has an unavoidable aspect of horror—the horror of rendering a human being into raw materials, of turning death into life, of harvesting organs from an undead boy. Should a practice, however noble, be able to hold truth hostage? Perhaps the medical profession should embrace the obvious: to be an organ donor is to choose a particular way to finish our dying, at the hands of a surgeon, after some uncertain border has been crossed—a line that will change with time and circumstance, and one that science will never be able to draw with precision."

http://www.newyorker.com/archive/2001/08/13/010813fa_FACT?currentPage=all

As this New Yorker article explains, even when every family member is strongly
in favor of organ donation, it's still fraught with ambiguity.

"It is tempting to wish that death weren’t so complicated. Had Nick and his parents realized how alive he still needed to be in order to donate his vital organs successfully, they could have been given an honest choice between having Nick remain at home until the end and giving up on his goal of becoming a donor, and going to the hospital much earlier and staying until he could be declared “as good as dead.”

Another grieving mother in Colorado is writing a book about her daughter receiving sub-standard care following an auto pedestrian accident, possibly due to her organ donor designation.

The medically vulnerable are ever more so with every passing day with the ACA and the fiscal considerations obscuring the ethical considerations we thought were "safe" after the Nazis and their horrific medical experiment on steroids had been defeated.

"If anything, the evaluations by the experts were even more mercurial and superficial than those of the doctors and administrators who initially filled out the questionnaires. Each expert was sent at least 100 questionnaires at a time. During one 17-day period, one of the experts was required to complete 2,109 evaluations.

The experts did no examinations and had no access to medical histories; they made decisions solely on the basis of the questionnaires. Their occasional disagreements had only to do with definitions and policy; the pressure was always to order a patient's death. At his 1946 trial, Friedrich Mennecke, one of the experts, recalled the implicit directive that ''one should not be petty . . . but instead, liberal'' in rendering a ''positive judgment.''   German Doctors and The Final Solution ~ New York Times 1986

Former Colorado Governor Lamm's Legacy??

Although Colorado is often credited for passing America's first abortion law, it was actually Mississippi ~ as States of Refuge reminds us.

"The eyes of America are upon you. Abortion began in America when Mississippi passed the first “law” that allowed for abortion in case of rape in 1966. This opened the door for other states to follow and eventually to Roe vs. Wade. The toll this murderous rampage has taken upon our nation is immense. You can be the first state set free from the curse of blood guiltiness. Since it started in Mississippi, how powerful would it be, if it ended in Mississippi? Certainly, this is a dream worth making a reality."

Yet, Colorado's former Governor, Dick Lamm, is responsible for America's abortion holocaust, in so many ways.  According to Wikipedia:

Colorado House of Representatives[edit]

"In 1964 he was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives as a Democrat from an affluent district near the University of Denver. In 1967, he drafted and succeeded in passing the nation's first liberalized abortion law.[6] He was an early leader of the environmental movement, and was President of the First National Conference on Population and the Environment."
"In 1984, his outspoken statements in support of physician-assisted suicide generated controversy, specifically over his use of the phrase "we have a duty to die." Lamm later explained that he "was essentially raising a general statement about the human condition, not beating up on the elderly," and that the exact phrasing in the speech was "We've got a duty to die and get out of the way with all of our machines and artificial hearts and everything else like that and let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life." [10] His dire predictions for the future of social security and health care ("duty to die") earned him the nickname "Governor Gloom".
The Colorado Statesman recently honored former Governor Lamm with a photo essay celebrating 40 years of Lamm's impact on Colorado and the nation:  
My quarter century efforts on behalf of the vulnerable pre-born prompted me to pen this missive ~
"Dead babies are Dick Lamm’s legacy — unless he repents"
Dear Editor,
Your November 1, 2013 special insert coverage of Dick Lamm’s 40th Reunion was an interesting retrospective but was sadly lacking one important detail from his legacy, which all the celebrating of his life and accomplishments can not erase.
The former Governor’s bill, which brought liberalized child killing to America in 1967, has led to the deaths of over 50 million innocent human beings who were never able to enjoy their beautiful country, see a breathtaking sunset, smell a rose or enjoy a glass of wine at a celebration.
Precious children made in God’s image and likeness who had souls, were denied the God-given, inalienable right to life, which America’s birth certificate, The Declaration of Independence, delineated.
Every year in Colorado alone, a Pepsi Center full of children are killed and flushed into the sewers or incinerated, like so much trash.
That is the sad legacy that will go with Dick Lamm into eternity, unless he repents for the horrific legislation he passed 46 years ago, which I pray he does.
Human rights do not come from the government, for then they wouldn’t be rights; nor from the majority (consider America and slaves, Germany and Jews); nor from the delivery doctor or hospital. For rights come from our Creator, at that moment we are created, as Jeremiah 1:5 quotes God, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”
The Declaration of Independence affirms what those who believe in God have always known.“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…” We have human rights because we are made in our Creator’s image and likeness, which is why parents, unlike animals, have a moral obligation to protect and love our children, born and unborn. 
We have the right to due process as affirmed by God when He said, “Thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” And we have the right to own private property as affirmed by God when He said, “Thou shall not steal.”
And we have the right to life as affirmed by God when He said, “Thou shall not murder.”  — AmericanRTL.org/the-Bible-and-abortion

Shocking ~ the mocking & blocking of truth in Jackson, MS

Last week, Operation Save America held another States of Refuge event in Jackson, to educate about the infinite value of human beings, made in God's image, and to press for the closure of Mississippi's last remaining house of child sacrifice.  If you've never been to an OSA outreach, there is none better to renew and re-dedicate one's self to the furthering of God's Kingdom and His purposes.

The evening rallies and daily educational demonstrations are powerfully effective and instructive.

Reverend Flip Benham, Rusty Thomas, Chet Gallagher, Cal Zastrow, Ante Pavkovic and Coach Dave Daubenmire all fired up the troops for our daily missions, with the haunting theme of 'who will stand in the breach' ?



It's truly amazing to see what a small band of 70 dedicated Christians can do to rock a city for truth!



The Pepto Pink kill mill is still standing but, Lord willing not for long. Diane Derzis and her employees on day one called the police out to chase us away because they had a permit for an imaginary rally. Although there were no attendees, they insisted we depart and because we had a memorial service at the Capitol to set up, we complied. 


As I drove away I got a snap of an employee decorating a car ~ hmmm? I should have anticipated their nefarious purpose but it didn't click until the pro-aborts began circling the Capitol ~ horns blaring to drown out the memorial, in honor of the 60,000 MS babies killed by abortion.  As disruptive as their parade was, nothing prepared us for the StopPatriachy.org anarchy team's takeover of the steps of the Capitol, led by Sunsara Taylor.


Chanting, "A fetus isn't a baby", "Abortion isn't murder", and "Women aren't incubators", they stormed the event with further shouts of "Abortion on demand, no apology".



"
Their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace."

Isaiah 59:7-8

The Capitol security were a bit slow to respond but eventually escorted them off the Capitol grounds and across the street where the mocking continued but the memorial to the pre-born children lost in Mississippi was allowed to proceed.

The following day, we headed to Pearl High School to educate the students about the horror of
abortion where we learned that the city of Pearl claims to be a First Amendment Free city.  We were asked to leave the campus by school authorities and told to go across the highway, which we did. Not long after, numerous squad cars arrived and the Police Chief told us of their ordinance requiring a permit to protest anywhere in Pearl.



Former police officer, Chet Gallagher, was extremely diplomatic in his discussions regarding the ordinance, which seems to be a clear First Amendment violation.



Our next stop was Millsaps College.  Founded as a Methodist college in the late 1800s, the institution is now clearly bereft of her founding principles.  Our signs were not welcome on the school property, so we set up shop across the street and the fiery preaching of Flip Benham and Ante Pavkovic began in earnest.


Powerful preaching about John Wesley and how he was persecuted for his faith and the faith of the schools founders really sent several students over the edge. Several female students sadly began acting out lewdly and a young male was clearly agitated.


A local businessman confronted our demonstration, complaining that we we interfering with his ability to do business. He held his hand on the horn for minutes at a time, trying to drown out the preaching.


Today's churches are so MIA from the 'war on the pre-born' and her message is so milquetoast, that a strong word makes people lose it when they hear and see truth.


"26 Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them.

27 Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain.28 Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar,seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord had not spoken. 

29 The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger. 30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one."

Ezekiel 22:26-30

Will The Church Repent?

Before the trees in Denver turned fiery red and snow began to swirl and blow, our motley crew at the evil Planned Parenthood child sacrifice center were paid a visit by a businessman from Wyoming.

Our short visit was peppered with lots of "christian" cliches as our friend thanked us for being
there and spoke about our need to read the Bible more.

Chris was headed to a meeting at the Renaissance Hotel right behind the kill mill so he was in suit and tie and was sporting a big smile ~ his Christianity on his shirt sleeve.  Maybe you've met someone like Chris before. I'll call him a sugary Christian.


He was really eager to tell us all about his "faith" and the Bible, but you see, when we started asking Chris about the abortionist in Jackson, Wyoming where several of us had protested the previous year, it turned out Chris knew Brent Blue.  He's a "really nice guy".

When we pushed him on how could he say a man who kills innocent babies for cash is nice, he switched to what a good "doctor" he is.


Turns out Chris avails himself of Doc Blue's services. 

He allows a man who dismembers human beings to touch him and give him medical advice.



When we queried whether that gave him any pause, he admitted he actually has a business relationship with Jackson, Wyoming's paid hit man.

Yes, Chris explained he had helped Brent Blue "save his building".

The three of us who were engaged I the conversation grew more incredulous by the minute.
Chris benefits from a killer financially, sees him as a practitioner, thinks he's a great guy and calls himself a "believing" Christian.

When our wonderful friends at Abolish Human Abortion launched their most recent project, Churchrepent.com, they were targeting church leaders for failing to be The Church in the historic sense. 

Every day, between 3,000 - 4,000 human beings are slain within blocks of numerous churches who completely ignore the carnage in their midst.

How are we any different from the churches in Nazi Germany who merely "Sang a Little Louder" as the cattle cars drove past with fellow humans being hauled to their deaths.

Father God, how can we be so blind as to repeat the same tragic error of failing to love our neighbors?

How can so many be so complacent at the plight of their pre- born neighbors being dismembered and flushed into the sewers?

How can Chris be so bold in proclaiming his belief in Jesus Christ who died so Chris might live ~ when all the while, Chris profits directly and indirectly from enabling Brent Blue in his diabolical "work"?

Deuteronomy 27:25 states, "Cursed is he who accepts a bribe to strike down an innocent person. And all the people shall say Amen."

The Church is failing to teach the culture, her community and her congregations even the most basic  tenants of the faith.

As A//A reminds us ~ "The Great Commission certainly includes the work of evangelism, as well as discipleship. But this discipleship entails teaching the evangelized to obey all that Christ has commanded. And what has Christ commanded? Christ has commanded a number of things, but if we were to begin somewhere, we should probably look at what Christ called the two greatest commandments, upon which depend all the Law and the Prophets:

But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matt. 22:34-40, ESV)

"You lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter"
JAMES 5:5

It's Not All About You !

Last week, in a most unsavory move, Denver's KNUS morning drive time talk show host, Peter Boyles devoted two hours to promoting the new and improved Hemlock Society.

The pro-euthanasia organization's founder, Derek Humphrey, explains how the organization got its start in an article which discusses why they changed the name to the more soothing sounding
"Compassion and Choices."

"Born in 1980 in my garage in Santa Monica, California, Hemlock went on to be the largest and oldest right-to-die organization in America fighting for voluntary euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide to be made legal for terminally and hopelessly ill adults. (There were larger organizations but they had what might be called a “passive euthanasia” agenda.)"

The wealthy Hemlock Foundation (worth some $2-3 million) has also modified its name. In a Articles of Amendment filing to the Colorado Secretary of State on 10/29//2004, the Hemlock Foundation for End-of-Choices changed its name to a new entity (surprise!) “Compassion and Choices”. Life memberships were grandfathered. Mission statements? Quietly forgotten. Presumably now there is no existing organization with the name “Hemlock”?

Mr. Humphrey has had a longstanding fascination with advocating for people to be able to "choose" their end of life and has created Finalexit.org and numerous others which promote euthanasia.

I was so disturbed by the presumably "Christian" Salem Radio Network's pro-death advocacy that I just had to call in.

Yours truly has had a longstanding interest in the death peddler movement for so long that I have an institutional memory about the movement's sordid history ~ much of it centered in Denver.

Crazy as it seems, the state that launched legalized child killing in the U.S. also spent decades and untold sums of money pushing death on the other end of the spectrum. As a matter of fact
that death obsession has had a dynamic duo at the helm for all these years ~ yes, you guessed it, "Duty to Die" Dick Lamm and his wife Dottie.

Dick Lamm carried America's first legalized abortion law, passed in Colorado in 1967 and went
on to create a Governor's on Life and the Law, primarily to facilitate more death advocacy.

Not surprisingly, The Denver Post gave the "Duty to Die Team" free reign for decades.

That freedom doesn't seem like it should extend to Christian radio, so The Passionate Prolifer
took on the two docs from "Compassion and Choices" and Peter Boyles.

I first mentioned that Derek Humphrey had a wife who wasn't all that thrilled with his death obsession ~ Second wife, Ann, who suffered breast cancer wrote ~

"Derek:

"There. You got what you wanted. Ever since I was diagnosed as having cancer, you have done everything conceivable to precipitate my death.

"I was not alone in recognizing what you were doing. What you did--desertion and abandonment and subsequent harrassment (sic) of a dying woman--is so unspeakable there are no words to describe the horror of it.

"Yet you know. And others know too. You will have to live with this untiol (sic) you die.

"May you never, ever forget.

"Ann"

Peter countered with an accusation that there will always be abuses but that I was picking just one example ~ Derek Humphrey is the head of the pro- Euthanasia movement in America, for crying out loud !

Next I brought up Michael Schiavo and his starvation & dehydration murder of his disabled wife, Terri in Florida. Who can forget how Michael found Terri to be inconvenient when he fathered two children with another woman he lived with?

Again, Peter claimed I was bringing up a RARE case of abuse.

How anyone can miss the potential for relatives of the vulnerable and disabled to hasten their demise in order to get their inheritance really baffles me.

As Wesley Smith reminds us in his important article "Boomers Too 'Special' To Die Naturally"


"Oh good grief. We Baby Boomers are such a pain. It’s always about us: Me. Me. Me.

And now, according to Time, we are supposedly going to change “how we die.” From, “A Good Death: How Boomers Will Change the World a Final Time.”

For eons, folks grew old, endured the symptoms, and died when it was their time—according to God’s will, some would say, even if it involved fighting through lingering illness, pain and suffering, or years of mental or physical incapacitation. A “good” death was about having lived long enough to see grandchildren, put one’s affairs in order, and pass away surrounded by a loving family."

And so lest we forget God's enduring command, "Thou shall not murder", I continue to rage against the death machine from fertilization through natural death. This clip reveals how even
so called "Christian" radio is promoting assisted suicide. My call is at 32:00.

Colorado has been ground zero for decades in the struggle to protect innocent life ~ how will it end ? Me, me, me ~ or as Mr. Smith presciently ponders, "Boomers are not a great generation. To the contrary, we did shamefully little considering how much we were given. Too busy patting ourselves on the back, perhaps, and breaking the china.

Frankly, I think we are going to leave quite a mess. And if we do open the spigots to assisted suicide, it will be to our everlasting shame."

End It, Don't Mend It ~

Not everyone is hooting and hollering about the 20 week abortion ban passed yesterday by
The Texas House of Representatives.

While the temps soared to the boiling point this month over the proposed restrictions on Texas females "right to kill," pre-born Texans remain as vulnerable as ever to the abortionists' long knives.

Get to the kill mill early enough and the little resident in utero can be sliced and diced and flushed away, before he or she is old enough to feel pain ~ so say the wise Texan Representatives.

Nary a thought about the oath they swore to uphold the constitution, it would seem.

While the low information voters can be expected to ignore the lofty principles America's founders gave their all for, one should expect more from those who campaign on protecting human rights, including Governor Rick Perry, who as a presidential candidate in 2012 told Rebecca Kiessling he was a champion of Personhood. All hat ~ no cattle.

Well, all y'all, your fetal pain law isn't progress.

America's Party presidential nominee, Tom Hoefling has proposed language which would actually curtail the shedding of innocent blood in the Lone Star State.

"Texas law already recognizes what is self-evident, that the child in the womb is an individual person:

Texas Penal Code, Title 1., Chapter 1., Sec. 1.07. — Texas Penal Code Title 5., Chapter 19., Sec. 19.02.

(26) “Individual” means a human being who is alive, including an unborn child at every stage of gestation from fertilization until birth.

(49) “Death” includes, for an individual who is an unborn child, the failure to be born alive.

And this:

TITLE 5. OFFENSES AGAINST THE PERSON

CHAPTER 19. CRIMINAL HOMICIDE

Sec. 19.02. MURDER.

(b) A person commits an offense if he:

(1) intentionally or knowingly causes the death of an individual;

(2) intends to cause serious bodily injury and commits an act clearly dangerous to human life that causes the death of an individual; or

(3) commits or attempts to commit a felony, other than manslaughter, and in the course of and in furtherance of the commission or attempt, or in immediate flight from the commission or attempt, he commits or attempts to commit an act clearly dangerous to human life that causes the death of an individual.

Sadly, when Rick Perry and the “pro-life” Republicans put that section in the Texas Code a decade ago, they also put in this:

Texas Penal Code, Title 5, Chapter 19, Sec. 19.06.

APPLICABILITY TO CERTAIN CONDUCT. This chapter does not apply to the death of an unborn child if the conduct charged is:

(1) conduct committed by the mother of the unborn child;

(2) a lawful medical procedure performed by a physician or other licensed health care provider with the requisite consent, if the death of the unborn child was the intended result of the procedure;

(3) a lawful medical procedure performed by a physician or other licensed health care provider with the requisite consent as part of an assisted reproduction as defined by Section 160.102, Family Code; or

(4) the dispensation of a drug in accordance with law or administration of a drug prescribed in accordance with law.

Added by Acts 2003, 78th Leg., ch. 822, Sec. 2.02, eff. Sept. 1, 2003.

So, all they have to do is strip out the latter portion, and voila, abortion is illegal everywhere in Texas.

Don’t be deceived. The current bill being considered makes this situation even worse. It walks all over the first section, which is good, by creating a sub-class of sub-humans, based on the arbitrary and unreasonable notion that they can’t feel pain.

Please, don’t offer support to lawless laws that codify permission to murder innocents. All it does is surrender the moral, constitutional and legal argument against abortion.

Which assures the continuation of abortion on demand.

We now have forty years of experience, and fifty five million dead children, to prove it."

T Russell Hunter, founder of AbolishHumanAbortion.com & Churchrepent.org has weighed in with his pithy impression of the PLM effort in Texas ~

"Do not confuse our opposition to the Fetal Pain Ideology as implying that we are somehow opposed to saving as many babies as we can everyday as we work toward the eventual goal of abolition.

To think that our opposition of the it's-okay-to-kill-your-baby-so-long-as-you-do-it-before-they have-been-alive-140-days Bill means that we aren't trying to save babies on a daily basis like Oscar Schindler or Corrie Ten Boom is unfounded and ridiculous.

The babies that have been saved over the past 40 years have not been saved by legislative regulations or incremental abortion bans. They have been saved by faithful counselors calling out to women at the "clinics," faithful family members and friends holding their loved ones back from the slaughter, and faithful warriors and debaters crying aloud in this culture of death in hopes of changing individual hearts and minds.

We work every day in many ways to save children from the jaws of death and our abolitionist ideology and strategy does not confine us to saving ALL or none. That is a ridiculous misunderstanding of our views.

PS: Oscar Schindler did not save Jews by passing bills that said most of them had to die so that some of them could be saved. The Boom family did not protect Jews by passing legislation that freed the Jews who would die painful deaths in the concentration camps but left the rest to be worked as slaves."

Rick Perry and the God-fearing people of the allegedly most free state in the union still have time to reverse the carnage wrought by Texas attorney, Sarah Weddington.

End the shedding of innocent blood for EVERY human being, at EVERY stage of development.
Stop crimes against humanity!

More evidence of O'Reilly's theory about Colorado ~ soft on sex offenders

"Now last night we brought you the editorial director of "The Denver Post" newspaper, apparently he opposes Jessica's Law which 44 states have. That law mandates long prison sentences for child rapists and molesters. In Colorado, 41 year-old-man Delbert Wallace Stiewert raped a 13-year-old girl for months, for months. He pled guilty to sexual assault and was sentenced to two years in prison.

Also in Colorado, 47-year-old Jeffrey Bigham, sexually abused a 11- year-old boy almost a thousand times. He got one year in a Colorado prison. So it is simply outrageous that seven Democrats in the Colorado house killed Jessica's Law, saying that the state already has enough sanctions against child predators. It does not.
Speaker of the House, the very liberal Mark Ferrandino, refused to put Jessica's Law up for a full vote. And now "The Denver Post" is sticking up for him."

Read more:

If you live in Colorado, you may recall that a senior citizen, Everett Stadig, was assaulted while gathering Personhood signatures nearly a year ago. His assailant subsequently was arrested for serial sex assaults. The notion of a speedy trial is apparently a thing of the past here where Mr. William Costello has had numerous continuations in court and remains out on bail, despite being a danger to the community.

May 22, 2013, our alleged serial rapist finally had a preliminary hearing.

For some odd reason, only yours truly was present to cover the attempt to seek justice for
the three women that Mr. Costello threatened with deadly weapons while impersonating a
Police officer in order to kidnap and rape three Colorado females ~ one a 13 year old child.

It is hard to imagine any other individual, except one with ties to former Governor Dick Lamm, being out on bond for nearly a year with these particularly grievous charges.

The details I heard in the preliminary hearing are so graphic they can't be shared here.

Prior to the preliminary hearing, Judge Reeves reduced the bond on another sex offender for $10,000 to $5,000.

William Costello be back in court June 24, 2013. This time he'll be arraigned for hurting my friend Everett.

Will any Denver media outlets care?

Bill O'Reilly would find this absurd delay of justice for a serial rapist, who also shoved a 69 year old off his bike fracturing his hip, to be further evidence of Colorado being soft on sex crimes.

Pray that somehow he hears of Costello's Crimes!

Cursed is he ~

With all the focus on Kermit Gosnell this week it is tempting to believe we are turning a corner.
Won't America wake up from the national killing spree? Will enough stomachs turn that some
long overdue soul searching will begin?

With every new revelation, I tell myself this is it. But then I go to Denver's evil Planned Parenthood death camp and it's business as usual.

Someone at AbolishHumanAbortion.com asked today ~ how could someone care so little about their own flesh and blood? I ask myself that every day. How can hearts be so hard? We offer help, and so few avail themselves of it, preferring the quick fix PP offers ~ the human pesticide kill pill or 30 minutes with abortionist Reid Goodman and the little "problem" will go away, with none the wiser.

Pro-life researcher, Bill Fortenberry, recently created a poster to use with abortion coverage on social media.

"Cursed is he who accepts a bribe to strike down an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen" Deuteronomy 27:25

Abolitionists are rightly advocating that the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the best weapon in our arsenal in fighting the slaughter of the innocents; the shedding of innocent blood.

And so I've added that perfect verse to my quiver of scriptures that speak to the heart of the matter.

Almighty God's abundant patience over America's holocaust amazes me regularly ~
May we all continue to search for His perfect verses to pierce the hearts of the lost.

Remember to inform your local abortionist of the piercing truth of Deuteronomy 27:25 ~

And never forget His word will never return void.~ Isaiah 55:11

King of Toilet Bowel Abortions Pendergraft's Orlando Women's Center Closing

Faithful servant and pro-life warrior, John Barros reports today:

"This Is One Of The Most Glorious Days I Have Lived... The Attorneys for the young lady that these guys destroyed stopped by to let me know Orlando Womens Center is Finished!!!!! They have been searching for and collecting assets for the last year and it is Amazing what they have found. They wanted dates etc. when Pendergraft has been here, how many babies a week they have been killing etc. All the court cases that OWC can have are over... The Lawyers are in Court in Orlando right now finalizing this Nightmare... They asked me if I wanted to go inside and I told them I don't think I could... They are even going to take all the Cabinets furniture etc. that Pendergraft has bought lately.... Please Pray that this filalization is complete this afternoon and that the last days would be quick.... God Bless all of you that have been serving here at OWC and especially all those of you that have been Praying…."

According to Lifesitenews, "Pendergraft, who was convicted of felony extortion in 2001, was told by an Orlando County jury to pay $18 million in the civil suit itself and another $18 million in punitive damages, totaling over $36 million.

Michele Herzog of Pro-Life Action Ministries, a witness in the courtroom, said that jurors listened as abortionist Randall Whitney, one of Pendergrast’s accomplices, “cavalierly stated that yes, babies are delivered in the toilet all the time and many times are still alive, wiggling around in the toilet.”

http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/abortionist-admits-babies-sometimes-born-alive-and-left-wiggling-around-in/

Please pray that OWC is the first of many dominoes in the evil world of shedding innocent blood!!

Glory, glory, Hallelujah !!

Terri's Day


As the anniversary of Terri Schindler Schiavo's death arrives each year, I'm amazed by how much I still struggle with the fact that America tormented a disabled woman and her beautiful family unto death.

Do I really live in a country so cruel?

How many other families are so mistreated that we never hear of?

When animals can't be starved & dehydrated without someone going to jail ~ why was Terri given a death sentence and tortured in our "civilized" society?

Tonight will be a beautiful Gala in Terri's memory to raise awareness about brain injury and how much more can be done to support the dignity of patients & families fighting for their loved one's recovery.

I can't make this Gala but a friend & I have been working to enlist Terri's friends and supporters to share their photos, videos and love for this valiant woman.

If you are on Facebook, check out Terri Schindler-Schiavo Death Watch 2005 and "like" it.
Share your memories and love for our friend Terri.

May we never forget and may we all be vigilant to fight for the lives of our family members in an increasingly hostile climate.

The Wheels of Justice Grind Slowly ~ Colorado

For any who still recall the assault of Colorado's Everett Stadig, aka " Abe" last June, the ongoing saga has all but evaporated from the media. Certainly, Westword has done the job that The Denver Post should be doing but the Post continues to demonstrate disinterest, if not dereliction of duty.

Amazingly, as the last Westword article explains here, Mr. Costello seems to be getting the kid glove treatment, considering the severity of the charges against him.  In addition to allegedly assaulting a senior citizen who was exercising his First Amendment Right to petition government for redress of grievances, Mr. Costello was found, by DNA testing, to have links to at least three Colorado rapes.

And as Westword wrote, "Did powerful pals help Costello gain his freedom, at least temporarily? Well, last week, according to Denver DA's office spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough, corresponding via e-mail, his bond was lowered from $200,000 to $150,000 despite objections from the prosecutor on the case. He subsequently paid this amount and was released.
Kimbrough also confirms that "two other people came forward with information" that connects him to another pair of cases, bringing the total in which he's suspected to five."
At the hearing February 20, 2013 where a new judge has been assigned to the sordid matter, another continuance was given, despite the fact the previous judge who lowered Costello's bond insisted that there would be no more continuances granted. 


Incredibly, yesterday's excuse for delay was that the alleged perpetrator in these crimes is not eligible for a Public Defender.  
I couldn't resist the urge to ask "The People's" attorney as we exited the courtroom how that wasn't obvious, since the Public Defender had told the court previously that William Costello is a "well respected and prominent Denver realtor" who she stated wasn't a "danger to the community".
So to connect the dots . . . Prominent realtors make too much $$$ to qualify for Public Defenders in Colorado.  Duh!
Now  William Costello will have a "Status Hearing" on Wednesday March 6, 2013.  At that time perhaps there will be a date actually set for trial ? I'm increasing cynical about all these continuances and justice being served for Everett who will by that time have been awaiting a trial for his assailant for nearly 3/4 of a year.



Yes the wheels of justice grind slowly in Denver . . .

Another football great's Mom chose Life ~ shouldn't everyone?

While some of us might balk at the notion that not killing one's children is "courage," we are nevertheless glad to hear about the San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick's Mother making the loving choice of adoption for her son.

"Her name is Heidi Russo, a 44-year-old nurse from Thornton, Colo. He’s declined her requests to visit or talk. She accepts it, but she aches for more.
Wouldn’t you? She was 19, unmarried and nearly broke when she gave him up. She cared for him for five weeks while she looked for an adopting couple who were (A) set for money, (B) had other kids and (C) loved sports. Heidi stands 6-foot-2, and the birth father, now absent, was also 6-2. 
She picked another nurse, Teresa Kaepernick, and her husband, Rick. They had one request: they wanted a boy. They had two kids already — son Kyle and daughter Devon. But they’d lost two sons to heart defects, Lance and Kent, who would be 34 and 32 now.
“I think about them every day,” Teresa says. “What we went through. What they went through. They played a role in all of this.”


This story, like so many others reminds us of how many other stellar human beings ~ extraordinary, ordinary and even less than ordinary have been destroyed in the greatest human rights abuse the world has ever known. 

Legalized child killing has denied the world, great artists, scientists, moms, dads, athletes, statesmen and women and who knows who else that might have changed the course of human history . . .

It's beyond time for the madness to end!

States of Refuge to the Queen of Mean: Stop the killing !

Jackson, Mississippi's Abortion Queen Diane Derzis ~ The Queen of Mean ~ sashayed around her decaying empire and claimed Jesus is her savior during OSA's States of Refuge event coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the tragic Roe v Wade decision.  



Her bluster and bravado throughout the showdown between our nearly 100 dedicated Christian warriors for the Gospel of Life and the 15 motley pro-aborts were on full display, yet the event stayed peaceful for most of the weekend.  The Jackson Women's Health Organization has run out of all options, but tried to put a smiley face on the last remaining killing mill in MS, with balloons and typical pro-abort lies and cliches.



Chet Gallagher and his lovely wife, JoAnn drove a truth trailer from Las Vegas to Jackson with Johnny Brekeen and we were grateful for his stirring words which inspired us to persevere until babies are no longer vulnerable to those who would profit from killing them.




Our rescuers and musicians went to two high schools, had a tremendous street protest and an information outreach to the King Edward Hotel where abortionist Bruce Norman stays when he comes to Jackson from out of state to kill innocent baby boys and girls.  As we often say, No Child Killing with Tranquility.  "Cursed be he that takes reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen." Deuteronomy 27:25



One of the great highlights of the weekend was Pro-life Mississippi's Doug Lane leading us on a tour of closed former killing mills.  Doug had great stories to share about God's faithfulness to the "rag tag" band of Christians who merely showed up to let their theology become biography on the streets of Jackson.  



 Almighty God's favor on the OSA States of Refuge team and especially Pastor Flip Benham was on full display at the 2nd Amendment Rally.  Not long after Governor Phil Bryant told the crowd that he'd fight for their rights, including life, Flip found himself at the microphone and gave a stirring and impassioned exhortation for Mississippi to seize the moment and CLOSE the abortion clinic ~ making it the first abortion free state in the nation which will be as it should be, since it was the first state to pass an abortion law in 1966, to its great shame.



On the final day, Father Pavone joined the States of Refuge event for a memorial service for Baby Daniel, who although he was aborted, still speaks to us about his infinite worth in the eyes of God.




Sadly the peaceful four day gathering ended with a completely unjustified attack on Cal Zastrow and his son Jimmy.  Diane Derzis can't have been very happy to have given Governor Bryant yet another reason to consider in the litany of reasons he already has to remove this evil blight from his city, yet she told the press her security guard had every right to "defend" himself if he felt threatened.  

"Woe to those who call good evil and evil good."  Isaiah 5:20
