Abortion Bill Causes National Stir

Feb 24 2009 7:38PM


As state legislators prepare to get back to work bill that will receive some attention in the Senate could put North Dakota in the national spotlight once again.

The bill sponsored by Minot Representative Dan Ruby that has passed in the House defines when life begins.

It says that happens at conception...thus offering constitutional rights to an unborn baby.

It would be a challenge to Roe vs Wade and because of that, it has put North Dakota...and the Republican Ruby in the spotlight...

(Rep. Dan Ruby - (R) Minot) "It has been overwhelmingly in support although I have gotten opposition and people expressing their anger and disappointment. But most have been in support mainly because it is basic science of when life begins and when a human being can be determined genetically and with DNA from its mother."

Ruby says he has been surprised how much attention the bill has received since it has only passed the House and is still a long way from becoming law.

He says he's been busy doing interviews with numerous national radio shows on the bill.

Belated Valentine to my family!

Although I sent Valentines to all my children and grand children
this year, none can compare to the one's I found at the Sanibel
Island, Bailey Matthews Shell Museum, last week.

As my heart and mind have struggled with "God where are you"? in our loss
of our beloved twin granddaughter, His fingerprints were everywhere I looked
on our trip to find some peace in the midst of devastation.

Thank you, Lord, for revealing yourself to us in our hour of need.

Rohrbough Rejects All Laws As Evil And Wicked Which Allow “And Then You Can Kill The Baby”

In his “Institute On The Constitution” January “First Friday” address, Brian Rohrbough, President of the Colorado-based “American Right To Life,” told an attentive packed house about the important differences between those who see the pro-life cause as a business and those who see the pro-life cause as a Godly calling. Emphatically rejecting the regulation of murder-by-abortion, he characterized as evil and wicked any law which says, in effect, after being complied with - “and then you can kill the baby” - a phrase first used by Bob Enyart, pastor of the Denver Bible Church.

To order a DVD of this important talk, please contact “Institution On The Constitution” at 1-866-730-9796.

Brian became active in the pro-life movement after his son Daniel was murdered at Columbine High School. Through his unrelenting years of investigation, he found an undeniable link between Columbine and our “culture of death” - a culture which has its roots in the secular humanist teachings of Darwinism promoted by our Godless, government-run education system. When “survival of the fittest” and “natural selection” became the official policy of our government, Brian says, the legalized murder of innocent children through abortion became acceptable in the eyes of man.

“American Right to Life” is a no-compromise, no-exceptions organization dedicated to ending abortion by recognizing the God given right to life and establishing the personhood of every human being beginning at the very moment that biological life begins. “A.R.L.” opposes every “pro-life” initiative or legislation that compromises God’s enduring command “Do Not Murder”.

Abortion Supporters Pelt Pro-Lifers with Stones in France
By John-Henry Westen

GRENOBLE, France, February 11, 2009 ( - Pro-life demonstrators outside a hospital in Grenoble France were violently attacked Sunday by abortion supporters. NOVOpress, a French-language news agency, reports that 70 pro-life picketers outside the 'Couple-Child' Hospital were violently attacked by a pro-abortion mob of some 260 individuals.

A pro-life demonstration was scheduled for the early afternoon, but prior to the arrival of the pro-life demonstrators, a rowdy crowd of abortion supporters took up the designated area. NOVOpress reports that when the pro-lifers arrived they were verbally and physically accosted.

Police intervened and remained on the scene until the pro-life demonstrators left an hour later. Two pro-abortion activists were arrested for throwing stones.

Later, 15 of the pro-lifers were confronted in a parking lot by 90 of the pro-abortion mob. NOVOpress reports that the pro-lifers were barraged with stones and even threatened with knives. They took shelter in a supermarket, but that did not stop the attack, which resulted in the smashing of the window of the supermarket.

Police in riot gear arrived on the scene and the abortion supporters fled. Police arrested but later released over a dozen of the abortion supporters, charging two with causing damages.

Eluana Englaro has died

Eluana Englaro, the woman at the center of the euthanasia debate in Italy, has several days after having her fluids and food withheld from her care. It is very sad that society may find it acceptable to kill someone by intentional dehydration.

To intentionally dehydrate someone to death, who is not otherwise dying, is euthanasia. The intention of the omission is to cause death and the death results from dehydration.

It is interesting that she died of dehydration so quickly. Usually it takes 10 - 14 days to die from dehydration. The question is, what did she actually die from?

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition urges the Italian Senate to continue drafting a bill to prevent further intentional deaths by dehydration.

Terri Schiavo's Father Pleads With Eluana Englaro's Father to Spare Her Life

by Steven Ertelt Editor
February 9, 2009

Rome, Italy ( -- Bob Schindler understands the pain of a father who saw his daughter change from a woman full of life to a seemingly lifeless person plagued by the effects of a severe medical condition. Although it may seem hopeless, Schindler urged the father of Eluana Englaro not to give up on his daughter's recovery.

The plea came in the form of a letter Schindler has written to Beppino Englaro, that obtained, asking him to not subject his daughter to the same kind of death Terri faced.

"Although we come from two different continents with different cultures, we do have many things in common. We both are fathers and we both have been gifted by the same God with children," Schindler writes Mr. Englaro.

"We both have a child that suffered severe brain injuries. I know very well the profound effect this type of injury can have on our loved one and their families. We both have experienced the same misfortune and hardships," he added.

Like Englaro, Terri Schiavo was unable to make her own medical decisions.

Unlike the Italian woman who is at the center of the latest euthanasia debate, Terri's family wanted to provide her the best care possible and fought her former husband's decision to kill her by depriving her of food and water.

"We do differ," Schindler explained. "Your daughter is alive and mine is not. You have control of Eluana’s future. I did not have any input regarding Terri."
