Comment and information on timely matters.

On 18-2-11, the US House voted 240 – 185 to strike all federal funding for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Every year the abortion giant receives hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding.

Whilst the amendment still has to go before the Senate where the Republicans do not have a majority and Obama may be able to veto it, this giant step is truly a leap forward in the thinking of the thinking politicians.

Recent videos by the pro-life organization Live Action may have contributed to this momentous vote as they expose Planned Parenthood staff repeatedly willing to aid and abet the trafficking of under-age “sex workers” by offering advice to an undercover investigator posing as a “pimp” on how to obtain secret abortions, contraception, and STD tests.

Needless to say Planned Parenthood are in a fury and have updated their webpage with an open letter to Congress and NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) are also screeching from the rooftops that lawmakers were “out of control”.  Apparently they are only “in control” when they poor millions of dollars into the death coffers of the abortion industry.

Planned Parenthood vigorously lobby and litigate against parental notification and consent laws as they are well aware if girls don't tell their parents, PP stands a much greater chance of getting them to abort and ensuring that there will be an approximate 50% return rate of those same girls in the future.

Please pray — yes pray — that the US Senate will allow decency and common sense to prevail and that they will vote for the passing of this life-saving legislation.

A young women in Colrado, USA, has been mistakenly given the abortion drug Methotrexate instead of the correctly doctor prescribed antibiotic she should have been given for a bacterial infection.  There is serious concern for her 6 week old unborn baby as Methotrexate is a drug originally designed for cancer patients but now in use by abortionists.  The action of this drug is target rapidly reproducing cells, which of course is what is happening as the unborn baby grows.  There is grave concern that this young woman's baby may have been seriously affected developmentally due to this drug, or that she may miscarry.  We ask you all to keep her in your prayers. 

One has to wonder, how often has this happened before but has not been noticed by the person prescribed the drug?

It was with great sadness that we saw the article in The Courier-Mail on Saturday 8 January 2011 headlined “Couple fight to choose IVF baby's sex.”  As we read the first paragraph, it became immediately apparent that there was far more to the story than just 'choosing' the gender of their next child.  According to the article, the couple have 3 sons and were “grieving for the newborn daughter they lost” — grieving the loss of their newborn daughter so much that they were prepared to, and subsequently did, abort twin baby boys conceived through IVF!  

What message is this portraying to their 3 already-born sons?  These already-born sons have now become victims of abortion.  As they get older and begin to realise what has really happened with regards to the aborting of their siblings, their sense of their worth in the eyes of their parents may well hit some very rocky ground.  

It was reported this couple are pursuing avenues through VCAT (Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal) to have their rejected “choose gender request” overturned.  Sadly, just like so many other 'bleeding hearts' cases, it will be used as a wedge to force the allowing of gender-choice in the IVF industry.  

We have reached a stage in society that allows these tiny purposely-created (via IVF) twin boys' lives to be considered so disposable that for the mere reason of the parents wanting a daughter, society allows these parents to have their unborn sons killed by abortion!    

We must continue to fight to stop the “me first” culture of death that has so invaded our society.

Like water on a stone, the drip, drip, drip of the pro-abortion lobby is eroding away the value of the unborn and the protection of women being coerced into abortion.  The news that another EMILY's List member has become a premier — this time in Tasmania — is very concerning.  Lara Giddings, a founding member of EMILY's List has taken over as premier from David Bartlett who has been quoted as saying that he is stepping down to “spend more time with his children”.

This could well be true, but one can't help wondering is this the latest ploy being used by EMILY's List to ensure their members get the top jobs and thereby “the power”?  Perhaps a 'bait and switch' tactic?  Seems just a little too convenient that in 3 cases now, Queensland, Tasmania, and of course federally with the Gillard/Rudd deposing, pro-abortion women are in the top jobs. 

Will the motto of Tasmania become “Tasmania — beautiful one day, pro-abortion the next”?

Each time you think the abortion businesses can't possibly think up any more ways to leech the evil of abortion into society, we find they can.  It seems that sexual assault "examination suites" are being purpose-built in newly-begun abortion mills in one in Nebraska and one in Iowa in order to boost their abortion businesses.

The abortion industry has a history of covering up sexual assault cases by doing abortions on the assault victims and failing to report the assaults to authorities.

A recent case in Ohio saw a judge ruling that a Cincinnati Planned Parenthood abortion mill rushed an abortion it did on a 14-year-old girl who was a victim of sexual abuse.  The case was brought by parents whose minor daughter had an abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility without their knowledge after being sexually abused by her adult coach. 

This is not the first time an abortion mill has been found guilty of covering up sexual assault and sadly, probably won't be the last.
