An Interesting Story........


Pam knows about the pain of considering abortion.

STOP...THINK...What is "wrong" with those that are outraged over the Tebow Superbowl pro-life ad, they should rejoice that, their mom chose life! Pro-choice is a misnomer since it only embraces death in meaning. Starting today my lexicon changes, pro-choice shall evermore become pro-mortem, a new word, as inherently accurate as pro-life!

Today's Washington Times spells out the details of a Conference Call between RNC Chairman Steele and several State Party Chairs. The jist of the conversation was to focus on fiscal issues. No one brought up abortion or homosexual "marriage". They totally ignored that we could be and should be on side of the American people on abortion, homosexual "marriage", and illegal immigration. Whenever they are given a chance to speak out at the polls on these issues, they win.

Conscience Protections Threatened, Public Comment Critical!

On February 27, the Obama Administration announced its intention to remove current regulations (implemented by the Bush Administration in December 2008) protecting conscience rights in health care. On March 10, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) then issued a formal proposal to rescind these regulations, thereby activating a 30-day period for the public to submit comments.

The National Committee for a Human Life Amendment (NCHLA) has devised an Action Alert (nchla.org/actiondisplay.asp?ID=271) explaining why the regulations should be retained and providing directions on how to submit comments. E-mail messages can be sent directly through the NCHLA Action Center. A preset message is provided, to which the sender can add personal comments. Please submit your comments before the April 9 deadline!

In addition, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has set up a special site with resources on conscience protection, including a link to the NCHLA Action Center message. See www.usccb.org/conscienceprotection. Parishes are encouraged to display this link on their webpages.

Highlighting the critical importance of the current conscience regulations, Cardinal Francis George, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said they are "one part of the range of legal protections for health care workers - for doctors, nurses and others - who have objections in conscience to being involved in abortion and other killing procedures that are against how they live their faith in God." Cardinal George expressed concern that removing these conscience regulations "would be the first step in moving our country from democracy to despotism."

One of my 3 daughters has been cured of her non-hodgkins lymphoma through the use of adult stem cells derived through the bone marrow transplant from a compatible donor. That is ethical science used to save lives in the spirit of the foundations of good medicine, which require "primum no nocere" or "above all, do no harm". It is enttirely unethical and therefore unacceptable to subsidize the killing of one innocent preborn human being as involved in embryonic stem cell research in order to seek to benefit the interests of another human being. The Republican party-of-life must stand firm against this Naziesque evil being forced upon the citizenry by the current occupant of the Oval Office along with his DNC comrades. May God, who according to Proverbs 6:16 hates hands that shed innocent blood, save America from further blood-guilt.

The following three Pro Life resolutions were passed almost unanimously with only two dissenting votes at the Prince William County Convention on Saturday, 14 March 2009. A great showing of support in Prince William County for the Right To Life.

Resolution (1) March 14, 2009



RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE RIGHT TO LIFE
UNDER THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

Whereas, the Republican Party of Virginia believes that all human life must be respected and safeguarded from conception to natural death.

Whereas, the members of the Prince William County Republican Convention agree, that upon conception a human being has been created and that an unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life as a human being

Now, therefore, be it resolved, that as members of the Prince William County Republican Convention:

1. We support a human life amendment to the U.S. Constitution

2. We endorse legislation making clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to all persons from conception until death.

3. We oppose the use of public revenues for abortion or organizations that advocate it.

4. We affirm our support for the appointment of judges at all levels of the judiciary who agree that human life begins at conception.


Resolution (2) March 14, 2009


RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF ETHICAL STEM CELL RESEARCH

Whereas, the Prince William County Republican Convention believes that human embryos are complete human beings at the earliest stages of development and, as such, they deserve respect and protection.

Whereas, human embryos are human subjects who, under the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics, may not be subjected to medical or scientific experiments unless those experiments will benefit them, and will not expose them to the threat of injury or death.

Now, Therefore, be resolved, that the Prince William County Republican Party:

1. Appeal to the President and to Congress to institute a total ban on stem cell research that involves the killing of human embryos.

2. We also urge the President and Congress to encourage scientific research that utilizes adult stem cells and/or stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood and placentas that are recovered after live births because unlike embryonic stem cells, they have produced positive results in the treatment and cure of disease without violating fundamental principles of morality and ethics.


Resolution # 4. March 14, 2009


RESOLUTION TO KEEP THE RIGHT TO LIFE PLANK IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM

Whereas, in the spirit of America's founding document, the Declaration of Independence, and as Delegates to the Prince William County Convention to the Republican Party of Virginia, we reaffirm the self evident truth that "all men...are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life..."

Whereas, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, "The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government." President George W. Bush in the proclamation for the National Sanctity of Human Life Day 2002 stated, "President Jefferson was right. Life is an inalienable right, understood as given to each of us by our Creator."

Whereas, we uphold the principle that every human being, from conception to natural death, has a fundamental individual right to life, which cannot be infringed.

Whereas, The Declaration further states: "That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."

Now, therefore be it resolved, that members of the Prince William County Republican Convention, in the tradition of our Founding Fathers, and in an effort to once again secure the right to life, we reaffirm our support to keep the Right To Life Plank in the Republican Party Platform.

Comment by Tom Whitmore on February 22, 2009 at 3:32pm
Sara, you should always contact your Representatives, Delegates, Senators , etc. whether they are Democrat or Republican, that is how they know how the public feels on an issue. If an inordinate response is received on an issue that doesn't follow Democrat party line, a Delegate, Representative or Senator may decide to not vote or to vote the will of the constituents instead of party line. We have to send the letters/e-mails, they need them for back up. when the Dem party leaders come knocking, afterwards.
Comment by Tom Whitmore on February 21, 2009 at 10:38pm
I spoke with Delegate Bob Marshall last night, it is coming out of committee in the house, for a vote, and then back to the Senate. He is hopeful of it's passing.
Comment by Barbara Dodge on February 20, 2009 at 10:48am
Nancy Pelosi met with Pope Benedict XVI and the Pope admonished Pelosi on duty to protect unborn

Here is what the Vatican Website had to say about the meeting...

"His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the
natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity
of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all
Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible
for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and
women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of
protecting human life at all stages of its development."
