So Far, So Bad

President Barack Obama has established quite a portfolio of extreme pro-abortion advocacy--already making his administration the most radical anti-life, anti-family administration in American history:

January 5, 2009 - Obama picks pro-abortion Virginia Governor Tim Kaine as the chairman of the Democratic Party.

January 6, 2009 - Obama chooses Thomas Perrelli, the lawyer who represented Terri Schiavo’s husband Michael in his efforts to kill his disabled wife, as the third highest attorney in the Justice Department.

January 22, 2009 - Releases statement restating support for Roe v. Wade decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions and has resulted in at least 50 million abortions since 1973.

January 23, 2009 - Forces taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations. Decison to overturn Mexico City Policy sends part of $457 million to pro-abortion organizations.

January 26, 2009 - Obama nominee for Deputy Secretary of State, James B. Steinberg, tells members of the Senate that taxpayers should be forced to fund abortions. Nominee erroneously says limits on abortion funding are unconstitutional.

January 29, 2009 - President Obama nominates extreme pro-abortion advocate David Ogden as Deputy Attorney General.

February 12, 2009 - Obama nominates pro-abortion Elena Kagan to serve as Solicitor General.

February 24, 2009 - Obama nominates Dawn Johnsen, a former NARAL attorney, as the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Legal Counsel. Johnsen is a professor at the Indiana University School of Law, but she is also the former Legal Director for NARAL serving from 1988-1993. She has argued that any restriction that makes abortion less accessible is tantamount to “involuntary servitude” because it “requires a woman to provide continuous physical service to the fetus in order to further the state’s asserted interest in the life of the unborn.”

Getting Planned Parenthood Off the Dole

Is it finally time to end Planned Parenthood's massive government bailout scheme? The Family Research Council thinks so.

With a $1 billion budget and a $114 million operating surplus, Tom McClusky, vice president for government affairs at the family advocacy organization, says Planned Parenthood just doesn't need to be in the public welfare line. “Planned Parenthood has proven that they don't need federal or state handouts,” he said. “During these economic times, when states are rethinking their investments, subsidizing abortion is probably not the kind of thing that they want to be known for.”

Thus, FRC is launching a new National Campaign to retrieve the $337 million in public funding Planned Parenthood uses to run its grisly abortion business at 880 mills nationwide.

Red Envelope Day

During the month of March, thousands of pro-lifers from around the nation will be participating in Red Envelope Day. Why don't you join us? The idea is very simple. We will all just send Red Envelopes posted to the White House to arrive on or before the last day of the month.

We will all write a very simple message on the back of each of the envelopes:

"This envelope represents one child who died because of abortion It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable to be a part of our world"

That's it. Some folks are gathering groups together to do mass mailings. Some have had a rubber stamp made to mass-produce the message. One enterprising group has even had postcards, envelopes, and postage stamps which can be purchased.

Regardless of how you do it, just do it. And make sure your Red Envelopes arrive at the White House on or before March 31, 2009.

The address is:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

Send a letter. Make a difference. Save a life. Be a part of Red Envelope Day.

Obama and Black Genocide

Abortion is the number one killer of African-Americans in the US. Indeed, though African-Americans only make up about 13% of the U.S. population, over 37% of all babies killed by abortion are black. In the last 36 years over 17 million African-American babies have died by abortion alone.

Because of these horrific genocidal realities--and because the new president of the US is himself an African-American--the Campaign Life Coalition, a political arm of Canada's pro-life movement, has called on Barack Obama to halt the slaughter. Obama travels to Canada today, so CLC President Jim Hughes has seized the opportunity to send the president a vital message: "Save the lives of 4000 African-American babies who die by abortion every day in the United States."

Pro-Lifers for Obama?

According to a new poll from Professor John Green of the University of Akron, pro-lifers made up a bigger percentage of Obama's vote than union members, white Catholics, Jews, gays, Latinos, or 18-21 year olds.

Pro-Life Legislation in the States

The news is not all dreary. A bevy of states are presently taking up pro-life legislation that could ultimately make an enormous difference--not just in Arizona, Arkansas and Kansas, but across the nation as we endeavor to defend human life.

New Pro-Life Political Party

Libertas, a new European Union political party dedicated to “individual freedom, democracy, and a culture embracing life” has now been formally recognized in all 27 EU member nations despite what founders have called, “the best efforts by Brussels” to stymie the movement.

The new Pro-Life party will contest the European elections in 2009 on a Pan-European basis, fielding candidates across the European Union on a common pro-European platform of democracy, accountability and transparency.

"A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about. Ours is a rich legacy. Rich but lost." --Woodrow Wilson

Place in History

“Whatever else it is, the pro-life movement of the last thirty-plus years is one of the most massive and sustained expressions of citizen participation in the history of the United States.” --Richard Neuhaus

Cecile Richards, the infamous President of Planned Parenthood, along with a host of others in the pro-abortion constellation of stars are now saying that they will not try to pass the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), this year. Apparently, a groundswell of opposition has put a bit of a damper on their grand plans to make medical child-killing entirely unrestricted. But, be forewarned: according to Mary Ann Kreitzer, "What they can't get in one giant step, they will happily take by inches."

Ridiculous and Eugenic

According to Ruben Navarrette, a member of the editorial board of the San Diego Union-Tribune and a nationally syndicated columnist, the current stimulus plan has a raft of ridiculous accommodations to Democratic political pork. But worse, it also upholds some rather Nasty Eugenic Ideas.
