Bill Gives Women Right To See Sonogram

Bill Gives Women Right To See Sonogram — In the month marking the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade, several House members held an event in Harrisburg this week to urge action on the Women’s Right-to-Know Act, said State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129).

House Bill 1077 would offer every pregnant woman in Pennsylvania seeking an abortion the opportunity to view and receive a printed copy of an ultrasound image of her unborn child. In addition, any questions a woman would have as a result of the ultrasound, including those involving gestational age and general developmental health, would have to be answered fully and completely. The bill would not require a woman to view the ultrasound and would waive one in the event of a medical emergency. Similar legislation has been introduced in 20 other states.

The bill is in the House Health Committee.

Nancy Pelosi And This Conscience Thing

Nancy Pelosi And This Conscience Thing — Nancy Pelosi, the fearless leader of the House Democrats, has taken issue with the Catholic Church because it is objecting to a potential Obama administration ruling that would force  insurance companies to cover birth control, contraception and drugs that could cause abortions.

President Zero is refusing to allow a moral exemption for religious groups.

Fearless Leader Pelosi told the Washington Post that “I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it . . . but they have this conscience thing”

Yes, Nancy  that “conscience thing” that led the Church to do things like:


“This conscience thing”, today, is also leading the Church  to oppose things like greedy insider financial deals and stock market cheating.

You probably  have a problem with that as well.

Have you ever thought about getting “this conscience thing?”

Abortion Causes Major Mental Health Problems Major Study Shows

Women who have had an abortion have experienced an 81-percent increased risk of mental health problems according to a study published in this month’s (September 2011) British Journal of Psychiatry.

The study by Priscilla Coleman, a professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, involved 877,181 participants of whom 163, 831 had an abortion.

It shows that risks of anxiety and depression each rose by over a third after an
abortion, while the rates of suicidal behaviors and drug use more than
doubled.

The conclusion of the study calls into question the conclusions from traditional reviews and reveals  a moderate to highly increased risk of mental health problems after abortion.

“Consistent with the tenets of evidence-based medicine, this information should inform the delivery of abortion services, ” it says.

For those that don’t have subscriptions to the British Journal of Psychiatry more details can be found in this article on ETWNnews.Com

Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, R.I.P.

Bernard Nathanson R.I.P. — Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, one of the founders of the NARAL ProChoice America before become a leading pro-life advocate, died this morning (Feb. 21, 2011)  in New York. The cause of death was cancer. He was 84.

Dr. Nathanson’s first experience with abortion came as a student at McGill University Medical College in Montreal when he paid for one his girlfriend after getting her pregnant.

After becoming an obstetrician, he got another girlfriend pregnant during the 1960s and performed the abortion himself. He became an advocate for legal abortions, and was instrumental in overturning New York State’s century-old abortion law in 1970 which was signed by Republican Gov. Nelson Rockefeller.

He said he and other abortion advocates knowingly lied about the number of women who died from illegal abortions claiming it to be 10,000 rather than the actual few hundred, and vilified the Catholic Church for it’s pro-life teachings as a premeditated attempt to get media attention.

At the height of his success the new technology of ultrasound convinced him everything he had believed was wrong. He came to understand that from the time of conception the unborn child has a self-directed force of life that, if not
interrupted, will lead to the birth of a human baby; and that the United States  Supreme Court got it horribly wrong when it ruled that it was simply “potential life” in Roe v. Wade.

Dr. Nathanson performed his last abortion in 1979 and declaried himself to be pro-life. In 1985 he made the earth-shaking film The Silent Scream, which shows sonogram images of a child in the womb shrinking from an abortionist’s instruments, and was one of the lest talked about but most influential films of the decade.

For about 15 years after declaring himself to be a pro-lifer, Dr. Nathanson described himself as a Jewish atheist. In December 1996, he was baptized into the Catholic Church by Cardinal John O’Connor at a private Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

“I was in a real whirlpool of emotion, and then there was this healing, cooling water on me, and soft voices, and an inexpressible sense of peace,” he said. “I had found a safe place.”

Dr. Nathanson was divorced three times before being married in the Church. He is survived by his wife, Christine, and a son, Joseph, from a previous marriage.

A more detailed obituary can be found at the National Catholic Register.

Philly Abortion Outrage Hits Sour Note

The headlines of today’s dead-print publications in Philadelphia were filled with outrage regarding the revelations of what occurred in the West Philly arbortuary of Kermit Gosnell. “Butcher” screamed the Daily News. The Inquirer put his orange-tan face beneath the banner and headline saying he had been charged with eight counts of murder. They did politely refer to him as a doctor.

The abortuary at 3801 Lancaster Ave. was named the Women’s Medical Society. It was the site of about 1,000 abortions per year and served a mostly black clientele. It had been open since 1979.

The charges were announced yesterday. Gosnell is charged with third degree murder for the death of Karnamaya Mongar 41, a native of Bhutan who traveled from Virginia to die in his clinic in November 2009 after being overdosed with anesthetics by an unlicensed staff member. Gosnell is also charged with murders of seven babies born alive who he killed by sticking scissors in the backs of their necks.

The babies were born during the sixth, seventh or eight month of the pregnancy.

Four staff members are also charge with murder either for the death of Ms. Mongar or the death of a baby.

One staff member is charged with performing an abortion at 24 or more weeks in violation of state law.

Three are charged with conspiracy and/or perjury and related crimes.

Pretty sick stuff. Maybe the outrage should be considered social progress. But then the memory of how these same publications fought like cornered rats to keep Pennsylvania’s late-term abortion law from coming to pass, and the vicious, and often untrue, attacks made on its proponents.  They deserve no honor or praise. Their late epiphany just leaves a sick feeling in the stomach.

A thousand babies a year since 1979.

Wonder what Tony Auth’s cartoon will be tomorrow?

And one wonders how President Obama feels about Gosnell’s prosecution.  Twice as an Illinois state senator , Obama opposed opposed legislation to
define as “persons” babies who survive late-term abortions.

Gov Christie Would Defund Planned Parenthood

Gov Christie Would Defund Planned Parenthood — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie eliminates all funding for family planning services in  the budget he unveiled Tuesday. The vast majority of the money goes to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

The state allocated $7.6 million to the budget line last year.

New Jersey, like most states in the current Dempression, is experiencing massive budget shortfalls. Even if it wasn’t, though, there is not a legitimate reason why a cent of tax money should go to an abortion provider.

Good for Gov. Christie.

When The ‘Raving Fanatics’ Were Right

California approved via referendum allocating $3 billion to embryonic stem cell research in 2004. Opponents of Proposition 71 or “California Stem Cell Research and Cures Act”, objected on moral grounds since the act resulted in the destruction of human life, and on practical grounds since other avenues of research seemed far more likely to get results.

The measure was supported by Hollywood A-listers such as Brad Pitt and Silicon Valley high rollers.

The opponents concerns were dismissed as the ravings of religious fanatics who wished to inflict suffering on Michael J. Fox and Christopher Reeve.

Well the verdict is in: the effort was a waste and the The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine — the institution created with the money — is giving up embryonic stem cell research to concentrate on finding cures using adult stem cells, which was never controversial and is being studied at many other places.

And California teeters on the brink of bankruptcy.

Planned Parenthood ‘Supercenter’ To Be In A Black Neighborhood

Planned Parenthood is preparing to open a “supercenter” this spring in Houston. It will be six stories and 78,000 square feet and have a “surgical wing” for abortions.

It will be in a Black and Hispanic neighborhood.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, believed the country would be better off with fewer Blacks (and Italians, and Slavs and Jews for that matter).

Today, Blacks, who make up about 13. 5 percent of the population, have 36 percent of abortions.

So What Does Harrisburg Know About Sex?

So What Does Harrisburg Know About Sex? — KYW1060.com, yesterday, reported that state lawmakers were mulling mandatory sex education in public schools. While the story didn’t mention a bill number, HB 1163 was the only one found in a search for “sex education” at the website for the Pennsylvania General Assembly.

Granted we might think our elected officials are experts on the matter of sex due to their amazing skill at finding imaginative ways of, well, giving it to us taxpayers, but one is puzzled at why they think it best to place a new mandate on public schools.

Oh yeah, I forgot, silly me. They are good at finding imaginative ways etc.

Still with this one you would think that they would have figured  that we, their masters, had caught on to this game. Sex education is sold as a means of curtailing unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease, yet in  just about every place where it has been instituted those problems increase.

And with revelations of Alfred Kinsey’s motives and the rise of social conservatism which led to success being found in doing the opposite of what Kinsey crowd advocated — even the stupid bill itself recognizes that there have been state and national declines in teenage pregnancy and STDs — it is mind-boggling that this is even being talked about.
