California Assisted Suicide Law Suspended – News Bites, Dr. Kheriaty Podcast

If a person uses the law  – uses physician-prescribed drugs to kill their self – during this suspension, the “cause of death” will be suicide.  This means that an insurance company will deny any claims.  However, the cause of death is not suicide under the law when it was enacted.

FROM CALIFORNIA COALITION OF COMPASSIONATE CARE:

June 1, 2018:   IMPORTANT NOTICE

The End of Life Option Act law in California is currently suspended due to a recent series of court rulings.  Patients who move forward with the End of Life Option Act during this period risk their death being classified as a suicide, which could negatively impact insurance policies, and put families, patients, pharmacists or other healthcare providers who are involved at risk.  Patients can, and should, continue to talk to their physicians about palliative care and other options to address pain and suffering during serious illness and end-of-life.  Healthcare providers should consult with their attorneys if they have any questions about the impact of this litigation on their practice or on their patients.

From Life Legal:

May 25, 2018 – Court Strikes Down California’s Assisted Suicide Law

Last week, Judge Daniel Ottolia held that the passage of the Act violated Section IV of the California Constitution and gave Attorney General Xavier Becerra five days to file a motion with a higher court to have his ruling stayed pending appeal.

On Wednesday, the Fourth District Court of Appeal denied the Attorney General’s motion for a stay, effectively striking down the “End of Life Option Act.”

Life Legal filed a lawsuit challenging the End of Life Option Act in June 2016, citing numerous concerns about the Act, including lack of patient safeguards and the unlawful manner in which the law was passed. In March 2018, we filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings seeking to have the law permanently enjoined and voided as unconstitutional.

The End of Life Option Act was passed during an extraordinary legislative session convened to address California’s Medicaid funding shortfall, services for the disabled, and home health support. The Constitution requires any legislation introduced during such an extraordinary session to be related to the purpose of the session.

Judge Ottolia found that the End of Life Option Act “does not fall within the scope of access to healthcare services” and “is not a matter of healthcare funding.” Moreover, the court ruled that, “The legislation decriminalizing assisted suicide cannot be deemed a matter incidental to the purpose of the emergency session.” This is not a “preliminary” ruling; it is a final order declaring that the End of Life Option Act was passed contrary to the requirements of the California Constitution.

“Life Legal has always maintained that the End of Life Act violates the Constitution and California’s long-standing public policy protecting its citizens from being ‘helped’ to commit suicide,” noted Life Legal Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. “We are pleased that the court’s ruling will restore the protection that the Act removed from the ill and vulnerable.”

While California’s assisted suicide law may still be in effect at this moment, it is only because the trial court has not yet signed the judgment confirming its ruling on the motion for judgment on the pleadings, finding the law unconstitutional. It is irresponsible for anyone to suggest, to the public and particularly to a cadre of doctors who are writing dozens of lethal prescriptions each year, that the assisted suicide law will continue to be in effect pending the ruling of the appellate court.

Professor de Mattei: The Encyclical Humanae Vitae in the context of its time

The Encyclical Humanae Vitae in the context of its time

by Professor Roberto de Mattei

Delivered at “Humanae Vitae at 50:  Setting the Context”, Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas, Rome, 28 Oct 2017

In an interview released to Vatican Radio on July 25th 2017, Msgr. Gilfredo Marengo, president of the Humanae Vitae study committee, nominated by pope Francis, said that “from the historical-theological research perspective, it would be very useful to reconstruct the Encyclical’s elaboration process which had developed in distinct steps since June 1966 to its publication on July 25th, 1968” through the examining of the documentation stored in some Holy See archives. My essay intends to be an external contribution to this reconstruction.

The roots of the moral crisis

Humanae Vitae cannot be debated, without recalling the systematic errors that this encyclical fought, especially the movement of “birth control” that was part of the broad process of the sexual revolution of the 20th Century. In the investigation of the historical roots of this phenomenon, it is necessary to trace the trend of ideas, or to study the revolutionary agents’ biographies. In the first case, our understanding of the influence of evolutionism, Marxism and Freudianism must be deepened. In the second case, it is necessary to follow the action not so much of ideologues, but of the propagators of revolutionary ideologies. There is of course a parallelism and an interdependence between the two paths. It is not incidental, for example, that the dates of life and death of two promoters of the sexual revolution in the twentieth century, coincide[1]: Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957), ideologue of Marx-Freudianism and Alfred Kinsey (1896-1956)[2], who with his Institute for Sex Research[3], gave a pseudo-scientific role to Reich’s pan-sexualism.

As far as the specific issue of “birth control” is concerned, the ideology of neo-Malthusianism and feminism is interwoven with the biography of Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), the main activist of the Anti-Natalist Movement of the Twentieth Century, founder of the Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA), which in 1942 became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).

FDA’s Medwatch Program Releases Nexplanon Safety Warning

After conducting a comprehensive investigation, the FDA released its latest safety warning regarding Nexplanon implants in March 2016.  The FDA warned of migration of the Nexplanon implant within the arm from the insertion site, which may be related to insertion of the implant deeper than is advised.  According to the FDA, the implant could migrate within the vessels of the arm, to the chest wall, and even to the pulmonary artery, which, it says, could also be related to deep insertions or intravascular insertion.  In cases where severe migration of the Nexplanon implant has occurred, surgical procedures may be needed to remove the device.

Nexplanon Lawsuit.

Clinicians who provide contraceptive services should, however, be aware that Implanon (now Nexplanon) may on occasion show up in unexpected locations that are far removed from the site of insertion.

Adverse Reaction To Nexplanon:  REPEAT INFECTIONS

SUMMARY.  The patient had the rod implanted by a physician.  The healing wound was traumatized after her arm was grabbed.  Following this incident the implant site became painful and bruised. This progressed to eventually becoming red and swollen with some purulent discharge. The patient was treated with a week’s course of flucloxacillin, which resulted in clinical improvement. However, the wound once again became red and painful with purulent discharge and she was treated with a further course of flucloxacillin. At this point the patient was treated with a 10-day course of clarithromycin and a swab of the site was taken. The swab result showed scanty growth of Staphylococcus aureus only and was negative for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Again, there was clinical improvement with antibiotics.

New developments in long-acting reversible contraception: the promise of intrauterine devices and implants to improve family planning services

After decades of having the developed world’s highest rates of unintended pregnancy, the United States finally shows signs of improvement. This progress is likely due in large part to increased use of highly effective long-acting reversible methods of contraception. These methods can be placed and do not require any maintenance to provide years of contraception as effective as sterilization. Upon removal, fertility returns to baseline rates. This article addresses advances in both software—improved use and elimination of barriers to provide these methods; and hardware—novel delivery systems and devices.


Pregnancy is treated like a disease and must be prevented at all costs to the mother’s health.

Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptive implants were developed to depopulate the Third World.  Now, our daughters are given them.


Trends in Long-acting Reversible Contraception Use Among U.S. Women Aged 15–44.  Centers for Disease Control.

After declining from the early 1980s through 2002, use of long-acting reversible contraception has increased over the last decade. Women aged 25–34 and women who have already had a child continue to use LARCs at the highest rates as their current contraceptive methods; additionally, larger percent increases in LARC use have occurred more recently among young women (aged 15–24) and women who have not given birth. Although sharp increases in use occurred among non-Hispanic black women between 2002 and 2006–2010, the rate of increase has slowed through the 2011–2013 time period. LARC use more than doubled among Hispanic and non-Hispanic white women in the most recent time periods. Non-Hispanic white women, who have historically used LARCs at the lowest rate, had a rate of use similar to Hispanic women in 2011–2013.

Long-acting reversible contraception has demonstrated greater efficacy in preventing unintended pregnancy among all women compared with other contraceptive methods, including the oral contraceptive pill and the transdermal patch (2,3). In addition, recent research has demonstrated that women opt for long-acting methods as their contraceptive method of choice when informed about these options (4); however, other research has demonstrated that barriers to LARC administration and use still remain (5,6).


You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

The FDA released Nexplanon BEFORE the drug trials were completed.  As you can see, the FDA wants users of the drug to contact them to report side effects!  It hasn’t been fully tested!  This means that drug is unsafe to use!

Father Frank Pavone and Saint Teresa of Calcutta

From the time he began leading Priests for Life in 1993, Fr. Frank Pavone maintained regular contact with Mother Teresa of Calcutta, including by phone conversations and visits, until the time of her death in 1997. Mother Teresa and Fr. Frank discussed pro-life strategy for ending abortion, and she greatly encouraged the specific ministry of Priests for Life.

Below are some of the things that Mother Teresa said about abortion, the pro-life movement, and Priests for Life.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta:  Pro-Life Quotes

But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.

And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.

By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.

And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.

Fr. Frank Pavone Hit Piece by Louie Verecchio

Over at Louie Verecchio’s blog he posted a vile article, “Pro-Lifeism: Worshiping the Human Embryo.”

Rather than condemn his article point-by-point, I post here my comment that is at the blog:

Comment by Nina D.M. Rhea

This pathetic, useless, and unkind hit piece on Father Frank Pavone is nasty. I’m a Trad Catholic who is consecrated to Our Lady via the Mission Immaculatae. I suggest Mr. Verecchio do the same. She will soften your approach to hot topics. That is what she has done for me.

This nasty hit piece accomplishes the following:
-Puts a bad light on Trad Catholics.
-Curses pro-life activists.
-Condemns Fr. Frank Pavone.
-Highlights Mr. Verecchio’s temptations toward Gnosticism.

There is no such thing as “embryo worship.” In fact, I was accused of “fetal worship” by a vehemently pro-abortion member of NARAL at a protest.

Human offspring aka embryos are in great danger. They are being Cannibalized By Humanity. Write about that why don’t you.

Fr. Pavone has done a yeoman’s work to raise awareness among bishops, priests and the laity about the demonic abortion racket. He deserves your praise not condemnation. So what if he rattles your sensitivities? Who the hell are you to complain?

Obama’s Sex Ed Mandate A Failure: HIV On the Rise

The “sex ed” programs of Planned Parenthood are dangerous and should not be in our schools!

Since the AIDS crisis in the 1980’s,

prevention of HIV/AIDS has been THE main justification for sex ed. 

But these programs are colossal FAILURES!

HIV is on the increase!

They DO NOT exist to “prevent” ANYTHING . . .

except common sense and waiting for adulthood to engage in sexual behaviors.

Their Real Purpose is to SEXUALIZE CHILDREN!

Since Obama Took Office January 2008:

Since President Obama took office, HIV/AIDS has been on the rise!  He immediately dismantled the federal abstinence program known as Teen Chat.

From 2008 to 2010, new HIV infections increased 22% among young (aged 13-24) homosexual and bisexual males and 12% among homosexual and bisexual men overall.

HIV Infection – At the end of 2012, an estimated 1.2 million persons aged 13 and older were living with HIV infection in the United States, including 156,300 (12.8%) persons whose infections had not been diagnosed.

“Sex Ed Matters” is a Planned Parenthood propaganda campaign in Massachusetts.  They posted dozens of photos like the one below.

Look at the photo.  Is this child abuse?  When a parent tells their own child “you could have been aborted” that’s child abuse.  Utopian Planned Parenthood slogan, “every child should be a wanted child.”

Brain Twister:  if this is a homosexual couple then the little boy was probably adopted and thereby  “unwanted” by his birth mother.  So why did they give the boy that sign to hold?  We think it doesn’t make sense.  It’s just a slogan they like.

Obama On Cover of LGBT Magazine

Gentle Reader, I am posting this so you do not need to take custody of your eyes over at Out Magazine.

FULL ARTICLE

“The 44th President of the United States is our Ally of the Year—a president who came to office on a wave of euphoria, appeared to lose momentum halfway through, and has since rallied, helping us secure marriage equality, among other landmark initiatives that are transforming our place in America.

“This is the first time a sitting president has been photographed for the cover of an LGBT title, a historic moment in itself, and a statement on how much his administration has done to advance a singularly volatile issue that tarnished the reputations of both President Clinton and President Bush. It might have tarnished this president, too, but for his late-hour conversion in 2012, which set the stage for the extraordinary succession of events that led to this year’s Supreme Court ruling, on June 26, making it unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples the right to wed. Many things led up to that decision—“decades of our brothers and sisters fighting for recognition and equality” as the president notes—but once his administration decided to join that fight it created what people like to call a “transformative” moment. It helped tip the balance, and it put our elected leader on the right side of justice.”

Unscrupulous Cali Doctor Guilty of Murder

How will this play out when physician-assisted suicide becomes law in the state?  (Gov. Brown signed the bill during a Special Session which won’t end until January 2016.  At that date, the 4th, the bill will become law.)

Dr. Lisa Tseng Guilty of Murdering Three Drug Seeking Patients

EXCERPT

Prosecutors said Dr. Tseng had been notified that nine of her patients, mostly young men in their 20s and 30s, had died.

Still, prosecutors said she continued to prescribe opioids, muscle relaxants and anti-anxiety medications in massive quantities.

“I know this is going to kill them, but I don’t care because I have a business to run,” Deputy District Attorney John Niedermann said during trial. “Something is wrong with what you’re doing if your patients are dying.”

Tseng also wrote pain prescriptions without examining the patients, failed to keep medical records and did not change her prescribing practices even after the coroner called to notify her that multiple patients had died, according to prosecutors.

How Abortion Leads to Euthanasia

About this blog post image

The Modern Hippocratic Oath.  PBS.  2001.

The excerpt says:

Yet paradoxically, even as the modern oath’s use has burgeoned, its content has tacked away from the classical oath’s basic tenets. According to a 1993* survey of 150 U.S. and Canadian medical schools, for example, only 14 percent of modern oaths prohibit euthanasia, 11 percent hold convenant with a deity, 8 percent foreswear abortion, and a mere 3 percent forbid sexual contact with patients—all maxims held sacred in the classical version. The original calls for free tuition for medical students and for doctors never to “use the knife” (that is, conduct surgical procedures)—both obviously out of step with modern-day practice. Perhaps most telling, while the classical oath calls for “the opposite” of pleasure and fame for those who transgress the oath, fewer than half of oaths taken today insist the taker be held accountable for keeping the pledge.

Indeed, a growing number of physicians have come to feel that the Hippocratic Oath is inadequate to address the realities of a medical world that has witnessed huge scientific, economic, political, and social changes, a world of legalized abortion, physician-assisted suicide, and pestilences unheard of in Hippocrates’ time.  Some doctors have begun asking pointed questions regarding the oath’s relevance:  In an environment of increasing medical specialization, should physicians of such different stripes swear to a single oath? With governments and health-care organizations demanding patient information as never before, how can a doctor maintain a patient’s privacy? Are physicians morally obligated to treat patients with such lethal new diseases as AIDS or the Ebola virus?

Father Frank Pavone:

The abortion mentality never stops with abortion. After all, if a mother has the right to choose to kill her innocent, unwanted child, why doesn’t the child have the right to kill her innocent, unwanted mother?

That’s what the right to die movement is all about. It has nothing to do with people wanting to die. It has everything to do with people wanting to live, but other people not caring for them and claiming that they are better off if a doctor kills them.

It’s an exact parallel with abortion, because women who get abortions don’t want them. Someone else does. It’s not about women’s rights, but about how we have failed to meet the needs of women.

Testimony for ABX2-15.  Assisted Suicide Advocate.  The Hearing at State Capitol.  Sep. 1, 2015.

Christy O’Donnell dropped a big bomb:  She wants the same CHOICE she had to abort her daughter in America.

(Transcript by West Coast Pro-Life):

“To think, looking at my daughter, when she falls asleep, I realize that when I look at her and kiss her, that she’s alive because I legally got to make that choice.  Our laws allow me, as a parent, to make a decision about her, whether she lived or died.  And yet, now that I am at the end of my life, I don’t have that same decision in California, because that’s where I live.”

Folks, we at WCPL believe that any parent who reveals to their child, adult or adolescent, that her life was almost taken by her own mother, is an evil, wicked child abuser. That’s the way we see it.

School failure, flunking students, violent children, chaos in the classroom, teachers molesting underage students, teen suicides, teen pregnancies . . . why?

Most public school teachers do not send their own children to public school!  Why?

School kids in Japan excel in basic arithmetic far and above the U.S.  But they have lower “self-esteem” than U.S. students.  Why?

U.S. school kids have a very high “self-esteem” but poor reading and arithmetic grades.  Why?

  • Are you horrified over mass school shootings like the one in the quiet rural town of Roseburg, Oregon yesterday?  Gun access is only part of the reason. The final part.
  • Do you know someone in your family or friends who struggle with reading and simple arithmetic?
  • Have you been led to believe that the purpose of sex education in schools is to prevent sexually-transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy?

This is Samuel Blumenfeld’s final book.  He passed this year.

Crimes of the Educators.

American author and veteran educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman have taken on the public education establishment as never before and exposed it for the de facto criminal enterprise it is.

Crimes of the Educators reveals how the architects of America’s public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core.

The whole-word method of teaching children to read – introduced by John Dewey and colleagues in the early twentieth century and which permeates Common Core – is a significant cause of dyslexia among students.  Public education’s war against religion, the “great American math disaster,” promotion of death education, and the government’s plan to lower standards for all so “no one is left behind” is destroying the logic, reasoning, and overall educational prowess of America’s next generation.

This “ABC News 20/20” show exposes Death Education as taught in a school.  This curriculum is widespread.

SEPTEMBER 29, 2015 — Chuck Donovan, President.

In a radio interview on the Diane Rehm Show on July 30, Terry O’Neill of the National Organization for Women (NOW) made a series of claims regarding Planned Parenthood that deserve a much closer look. O’Neill asserted that, “The claim that we can somehow replace Planned Parenthood overnight – you shut down all the Planned Parenthood’s [sic] clinics and that they could be replaced overnight, is silly and specious.”

It is indeed silly and specious because none of the proposals pending in Congress would shut down Planned Parenthood clinics and replace them, overnight or anytime. Instead, the discussion is about shifting the $528.4 million of total government funds away from Planned Parenthood and to the thousands of existing community health centers and other providers. As the following points make clear, Planned Parenthood can absorb the cut considering its relationship with private donors and its excess revenue, while on the other hand, community health centers have the capacity to acquire and serve new patients. Proposals in Congress to “defund” Planned Parenthood, therefore, merely reallocate women’s health expenditures to agencies that offer women a full menu of primary care.

Nice Try, Bill Nye: “A Fetus Is Not Human”

Nice Try, Bill Nye.

​​Science is important in our lives.  However, when fraudulent science cannibalizes it’s own humanity, it’s evil and wrong.​
Nye claims fetuses are not human.  If the fetuses are not human, then why are they used for human medical research to find cures for human diseases?  Hmmmm?  Nice try Bill Nye.​
If fetuses are just “balls of protein and DNA,” how do you explain the Mystery Trigger that kicks in to make them differentiate?​
​Where does that come from, crystals in the air perhaps?​

​”Anti-abortion is sexist​”​?  Half aborted babies are female.​

​Since you sound like a feminist and like to get on their side, why don’t you worry about post-abortive girls as young as 13 who are forced to abort?  You’re not a female so how can you proclaim there are no lingering psychological after effects?  That’s sexist!

​”Many scientists agree” is not the same as “every single scientist agrees.”​ ​  So, you base your “expertise” on just a theory, Mr. Nye.​
​Finally, how many cures have human embryonic and fetal stem cells produced?  Z E R O.​
BILL NYE’s MARGARET SANGER MOVEMENT TALKING POINTS.  FROM THE ARTICLE IN QUESTION:

He argues that women, and women alone, should decide what to do with their bodies — not old, white men who are mostly out of touch with the psychological and physical trauma that could come with being forced to carry an unwanted child.

But the most notable ignorance, arguably, is the presumption that life begins at conception.

But embryos and fetuses aren’t people. They don’t have rights. They aren’t Americans yet. They’re just balls of DNA and protein.

In fact, many scientists agree that human life doesn’t actually begin until about 24 weeks after fertilization, when our brains start producing wave patterns specific to humans, Scott Gilbert, a developmental biologist at Swarthmore College who wrote the quintessential

Will Jesuit Radicalism Influence Governor Brown’s Assisted Suicide Decision?

  • The Jesuits are defiant toward the moral principles of the Catholic Church.
  • Governor Jerry Brown, schooled by Jesuits in seminary, is the most abortion-friendly legislator in the country.
  • Pope Francis, a Jesuit, is frequently criticized by traditional cardinals for his strident comments which are uncharacteristic of a pope.

Governor Brown + The Jesuits + Pope Francis.  This is a trifecta of Trouble.  And their influence is about to change California law.  My husband and I are Vatican watchers.  We’re Traditional Roman Catholic.  This means that we go to a traditional Latin Mass and stay clear of the left-wing “social justice” trends in the American Church:  man-made global warming; restorative justice (no jail for crimes); immigration reform (disobey the law); and repeal the death penalty.  None of these are commandments made by Jesus.

 

Governor Brown

It’s common knowledge that Governor Brown studied to become a Jesuit priest once.  It’s highly likely he remains friendly with liberal or revolutionary-leaning Jesuit priests.  His left-wing policies are likely complemented by his Jesuit colleagues, whoever they are.  He’s probably had a lifetime of influence from the Jesuits.  Their social justice beliefs are outside the boundaries of traditional faith and reason.
Brown is interested in human suffering.  In an interview with Zenit, Brown proclaimed that efforts against man-made global warming will relieve suffering of millions of “vulnerable people.”  In the same interview, he reflects on the common good.  It’s up to interpretation, of course.
 
The Nicaragua Sandinista (Communist) Government that over threw the traditional government there:
  • The Jesuits disobeyed Pope John Paul II in the early 1970’s.  Several revolutionary priests in Nicaragua became Communists and worked with Fidel Castro.  They also ran for and won political office there, in complete disobedience to the Vatican.
  • They practice “Liberation Theology” which has been condemned by Popes JPII and Pope Benedict XVI.
  • They openly despise Capitalism.
  • It’s all in the book The Jesuits by Malachi Martin.

Pope Francis is a Jesuit, the first to be elected pope.  Liberation Theology is popular among priests in South America.

  • He forgave one of those Nicaraguan priests for his radical activism.
  • He reinstated that priest in 2014.  Article.
  • This year it was revealed in a Catholic News Agency story that “A Former Soviet Spy Created Liberation Theology.”
  • The pope finessed President Obama’s Cuba relations.
​Individual ​​Jesuits support homosexual rights, Planned Parenthood, and are weak on assisted suicide.  I say individual because the entire body of Jesuits do not have a statement about these things.

I think George Castanza’s dilemma with himself could offer advise to Governor Brown.  George spent an episode making decisions based on the opposite of what he would usually do.

George:  Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable, I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but … I was perceptive. I always know when someone’s uncomfortable at a party. It became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I’ve ever made, in my entire life, has been wrong. My life is the opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have, in every area of life, be it something to wear, something to eat … It’s all been wrong.

Jerry: If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.

George: Yes, I will do the opposite. I used to sit here and do nothing, and regret it for the rest of the day, so now I will do the opposite, and I will do something!

George to female restaurant customer:  Excuse me, I couldn’t help but notice that you were looking in my direction.

Victoria:  Oh, yes I was, you just ordered the same exact lunch as me.

George:  My name is George.  I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.

The Next Day

George to Jerry:  Hey, I just found twenty dollars!  I tell you this, something is happening in my life. I did this opposite thing last night. Up was down, black was white, good was –

Jerry:  – bad.

Jerry : So you just did the opposite of everything?

George:  Yes. And listen to this, listen to this; her uncle works for the Yankees and he’s gonna get me a job interview. A front office kind of thing. Assistant to the traveling secretary. A job with the New York Yankees! This has been the dream of my life ever since I was a child, and it’s all happening because I’m completely ignoring every urge towards common sense and good judgment I’ve ever had. This is no longer just some crazy notion. Jerry, this is my religion.

Readers, I hope you can see what’s wrong with agere contra .  The governor can’t count on his own conscience if he second-guesses what is good and what is bad.  God’s laws inform a traditional Catholic conscience.  Will he choose to obey God’s laws and reject the right-to-die fanatics?  Or will he do the opposite?

 

How NOT To Prevent Assisted Suicide On World Suicide Prevention Day

Well done, Nancy! Nina

HOW NOT TO PREVENT ASSISTED SUICIDE ON WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and this week is the US National Suicide Prevention Week.

.According to the International Association for Suicide Prevention:

“We may not be able to pinpoint the exact figure, but we do know that each individual suicide is a tragic loss of life. It is hard to imagine the extreme psychological pain that leads someone to decide that suicide is the only course of action. Reaching out to someone who is struggling can make a difference.” (emphasis added)

All aspects of suicide, suicide prevention and the groups at risk are addressed by these organizations. Yet on the topic of preventing physician assisted suicide, there is only silence.

If indeed some suicides should be considered acceptable or even worthy, I have some suggestions on how NOT to prevent assisted suicide:

If you are a Baby Boomer then the people at the AARP have something to teach you about your very own personal death!  Who cares if this in itself is psychologically disturbing and suggests a duty to die mentality?

Decent Human Being Jailed For Not Violating Her Conscience

It’s the civilized world against the tyranny of ideas.

“I have received death threats from people who do not know me. I harbor nothing against them. I was elected by the people to serve as the County Clerk. I intend to continue to serve the people of Rowan County, but I cannot violate my conscience.”  Kim Davis.

Mike Huckabee has been one of the biggest presidential supporters of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. As early as this morning he was defending her by saying she was completely following state law.

Well, after Davis was ordered to jail today, Huckabee sent out a brief tweet declaring it to be proof of America’s criminalization of Christianity…

Liberty Council is defending her.  Statement by Kim Davis:

LC.org

Late yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court declined to extend the temporary stay of a federal court order involving Rowan County Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis. The federal court previously ordered Kim Davis to issue marriage licenses to the plaintiffs who filed suit against her. Liberty Counsel represents Kim Davis and appealed that order to the Court of Appeals. The lower court order was temporarily stayed until August 31, and, while the appeal is still pending, the stay of the order is no longer in effect. In light of these developments, Kim Davis released the following statement:

I have worked in the Rowan County Clerk’s office for 27 years as a Deputy Clerk and was honored to be elected as the Clerk in November 2014, and took office in January 2015. I love my job and the people of Rowan County. I have never lived any place other than Rowan County. Some people have said I should resign, but I have done my job well. This year we are on track to generate a surplus for the county of 1.5 million dollars.

In addition to my desire to serve the people of Rowan County, I owe my life to Jesus Christ who loves me and gave His life for me. Following the death of my godly mother-in-law over four years ago, I went to church to fulfill her dying wish. There I heard a message of grace and forgiveness and surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. I am not perfect. No one is. But I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to Him and to the Word of God.

I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience. I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will. To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. It is about marriage and God’s Word. It is a matter of religious liberty, which is protected under the First Amendment, the Kentucky Constitution, and in the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Our history is filled with accommodations for people’s religious freedom and conscience. I want to continue to perform my duties, but I also am requesting what our Founders envisioned – that conscience and religious freedom would be protected. That is all I am asking. I never sought to be in this position, and I would much rather not have been placed in this position. I have received death threats from people who do not know me. I harbor nothing against them. I was elected by the people to serve as the County Clerk. I intend to continue to serve the people of Rowan County, but I cannot violate my conscience.

 

 

 

The GOP Party Platform: Is It Protecting All Life?

THE RIGHT TO LIFE page 8 2012

The California Republican Party is the part y that protects innocent life because we believe life begins at conception and ends at natural death.

We support laws that protect unborn children from partial birth, sex selection, and tax-payer funded abortions, and abortions performed as a form of birth control or on minor girls without their parent’s notification and consent. We believe that the question of abortion is a ma tter that should be left to the people through their elected representatives, not usurped by the United States Supreme Court, and believe that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be reversed. We support adoption as an alternative to abortion and call on lawmakers to reduce the bureaucratic burden placed on adoptive couples.

As a part of respecting the sanctity of life for disabled persons, we oppose efforts to legalize assisted suicide or euthanasia. We support a comprehensive ban on all human cloning. The California Republican Party supports ethical stem cell research that focuses on cures not destroying innocent human Life.

How Many Stem Cell Cures?

Do No Harm opposes stem cell research that relies on the destruction of human life and on human cloning and supports such alternatives as adult and cord blood stem cell research and the more recent advances involving induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).

StemExpress CEO at Center of Planned Parenthood Scandal – Crisis Magazine

excerpt

The more important connection between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood is Dr. Ronald Berman, a 73 year-old abortion provider, and Medical Director at Planned Parenthood, Fresno, as well as Planned Parenthood Mountain View, CA.  At the same time Berman was doing abortions for Planned Parenthood, he was also employed as Senior Medical Director at StemExpress doing the very abortions that are contributing to the bottom line of the company he works for. In fact, in the undercover videos, Holly O’Donnell identifies Berman as having a reputation for “going viciously fast” in his abortion and harvesting practices at Planned Parenthood.

Assisted Suicide A Medicare Treatment Option?

California governor balks at push to eye right-to-die bill.  AP.

“It is particularly troubling that in this rush to judgment, proponents are linking this bill with health care financing,” said Tim Rosales, a spokesman for Californians Against Assisted Suicide, which includes groups advocating for Catholics, oncologists and people with disabilities.  “That should be truly frightening to those on MediCal and subsidized health care, who quite logically fear a system where prescribing suicide pills could be elevated to a treatment option.”

The Democrats: The Party of Death

2006.  Regnery.

Is the Democratic Party the “Party of Death”?If you look at their agenda they are.

IT’S NOT JUST abortion-on-demand. It’s euthanasia, embryo destruction, even infanticide—and a potentially deadly concern with “the quality of life” of disabled people.   If you think these issues don’t concern you—guess again. The Party of Death could be roaring into the White House, as National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru shows, in the person of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In The Party of Death, Ponnuru details how left-wing radicals, using abortion as their lever, took over the Democratic Party—and how they have used their power to corrupt our law and politics, abolish our fundamental right to life, and push the envelope in ever more dangerous directions. In The Party of Death, Ponnuru reveals:

* How Hillary Clinton could use the abortion issue (but not in the way you think) to become president * Why the conventional wisdom about Roe v.Wade is a lie * How the party of death—a coalition of special interests ranging from Planned Parenthood to Hollywood—came to own the Democratic Party * How the mainstream media promotes the party of death * Why Jesse Jackson, Al Gore, and other leading liberals gave up being pro-life * How liberals use animal rights to displace human rights * The Democratic presidential candidate who said that infanticide is a mother’s “choice” * How doctors—and other health care professionals—are being coerced, by law, into violating their consciences * The ultrasound revolution:  why there’s hope to stop the party of death

Ponnuru’s shocking exposé shows just how extreme the Party of Death has become as they seek to destroy every inconvenient life, demand fealty to their radical agenda, and punish anyone who defies them. But he also shows how the tide is turning, how the Party of Death can be defeated, and why its last victim might be the Democratic Party itself.

The Banality of Evil Redux: The Nazis and PPFA

Both the Nazi elimination of Jews and Planned Parenthood’s commercial traffic in baby parts proceed from similar principles: for the Nazis, Jews were not human, and could be eliminated in order that they not contaminate the “Master Race”; for Planned Parenthood, a fetus is not a human being (even if it emerges partially from the birth canal), because it has not been “born” . These principles were not stated explicitly, but they were fundamental in all the propaganda from the Nazis and from the advocates of partial-birth abortion. Those involved in these decisions, as the transcripts show (one, two, three), have no qualms about their projects; there is no hint of conscience being over-ridden.

Death No Matter What: PPMM’s Lawless Theft of “Specimens” (6th Video)

“I’m not going to tell a girl to kill her baby so I can get money, and that’s what this company does,” she said. “I would tell them, ‘Run.'”

It really wore me down.  The environment — it’s morbid, you can just feel it, you can hear screaming.  Former procurement tech.

PPMM = Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Territory

  • Sacramento, Fresno and Stockton are featured — on camera — in the Human Capital video released today.

PPMM

The film features an on camera interview with a former “procurement technician,” an employee of Stem Express, Holly O’Donnell.

New video: Planned Parenthood would ‘steal’ aborted baby parts without mom’s consent | News | LifeSite.

Excerpt:  Section Titles are our’s.

Since the video series broke, Planned Parenthood officials have said that they always obtain the mother’s consent – a legal requirement – before charging biotech companies “reimbursement costs” for storing the “organ and tissue donation.”

But O’Donnell, a former technician who worked inside the Stockton and Fresno Planned Parenthood facilities, said if Planned Parenthood stood to make money, they would simply take the specimens they wanted.

“No, doesn’t happen all the time,” O’Donnell said. “They would not consent the donors” in every case.

“They give you a sheet, and it’s everybody for that day, who’s coming in for an ultrasound, who’s coming in for an abortion, medical or a late-term abortion,” O’Donnell explains.

PPMM consent form

Beware Pregnancy Test Appointments!

Even patients who scheduled a pregnancy test were considered potential “donors,” she said. “Pregnancy tests are potential pregnancies, [and] therefore potential specimens.”

Her bosses looked at this as “just taking advantage of the opportunities.”

They often told her obtaining aborted babies’ tissue and body parts is “not an option; it’s a demand.”

Blood-Thirsty Body Snatchers

“If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there were times when they would just take [baby parts] what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”

In one case, O’Donnell said she spoke with a patient who refused to consent [to donate her baby] – but her co-worker emerged with numerous [blood] samples after the patient’s unconsented abortion.

“What did you say to her to get that blood?” O’Donnell asked her co-worker. “She said, ‘Nothing.'”

  • “Basically, you just went in there and took her blood, and you’re going to be taking her fetus [for science] without her knowing,” O’Donnell said.

“Imagine if you’re an abortion patient, and someone was going in stealing your baby’s parts,” she said in the video, the sixth released by CMP following its 30-month investigation.

“The women I worked for were cold. They don’t care. They just wanted their money. They don’t care that a girl’s throwing up in a trash can,” O’Donnell said in the video.

“I’m not going to tell a girl to kill her baby so I can get money, and that’s what this company does,” she said. “I would tell them, ‘Run.'”

“Experiences like Holly O’Donnell’s show that Planned Parenthood’s abortion and baby parts business is not a safe place where vulnerable women can be cared for, but a harvesting ground for saleable human ‘product,’” said CMP’s Project Lead David Daleiden. “Taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business should be revoked immediately, and law enforcement and other elected officials must act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood’s offensive practices and hold them accountable to the law.”

Fr. Frank Pavone: To Humanize the Unborn Baby Is Purpose of Those Videos

I woke up this morning thinking about that stupid lion.  His name was Cecil.  The CEO of PPFA is Cecile.

One thing I know for certain is that in the 21st Century, the humanization of animals has moved way beyond cute stories for children.  While during the same period of time, the dehumanization of unborn human babies is big business.

From LifeSiteNews

In an interview with LifeSiteNews, Fr. Frank Pavone, one of the pro-life leaders behind the release of the video series, said,

“When an abortionist dehumanizes the baby that he or she is about to kill, the abortionist also dehumanizes himself. And this is what we are seeing in these people. We see it in Deborah Nucatola sipping the wine and eating the salad and talking about the body parts.”

Pavone said one of the main objectives of the video series was to humanize the unborn baby. “When people see and hear terms like ‘eyes, livers, hearts’ it’s like, ‘What are we talking about here? This is ghoulish disgusting activity.’”  Full story.

Wesley J. Smith wrote a fascinating and detailed book exposing the animal rights movement.  Two days ago he posted a blog about that lion:  Cecil’s killer violated human exceptionalism.

TX Investigators visit Planned Parenthood see fingers and toes in “POC Room”

Saynsumthn's Blog

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton testified today in front of the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services regarding the active ongoing investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices. The investigation follows the recent publication of several videos showing Planned Parenthood officials apparently discussing the harvesting and sale of human baby body parts.

Ken Paxton 20110524662_40ca90a729_h

The Texas Attorney General’s Office (OAG) announced the investigation on July 15 in coordination with the Texas Governor’s Office and Health and Human Services Commission. In his testimony, Attorney General Paxton revealed some of what OAG investigators saw at a clinic in Houston and denounced the institution of abortion.

Excerpts from Attorney General Paxton’s testimony are below:

“As you all know, several weeks ago, videos began to surface of Planned Parenthood officials talking candidly, and bluntly, about the prospect of essentially selling body parts of aborted babies. Shortly thereafter, my office, coordinating with Gov. Abbott and officials at…

Court blocks pro-life group from releasing some new fetal part footage LifeSite

BREAKING: Court blocks pro-life group from releasing some new fetal part footage | News | LifeSite.

However, Daleiden told LifeSiteNews that StemExpress’ complaints are groundless.

“The recordings in California complied with the California law,” he said. “The California law only applies to ‘confidential communications’ and does not include conversations held in public that anyone can overhear. There is significant case law on this point as well.”

In a separate statement released after the court ruling, CMP accused Stem Express of using “meritless litigation” to “cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech, and silence the citizen press reporting on issues of burning concern to the American public.”

The AP reports that the restraining order will remain in place until a hearing on Aug. 19.

Who Are They Fooling? Planned Parenthood’s “Green Choices” To Protect Your Health

Yesterday, the Center for Medical Progress released their third undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s wicked human baby tissue and body part trafficking.  We hear there are 12 videos in all to be released over time.

Abortion Giant Wants You To Prevent Cancer and Call Poison Control

Here at West Coast Pro-Life and at our sister blog, Green Population Control, we expose PPFA, too.  Alas, to a smaller audience.  We don’t let that stop us.

For several years now, we’ve been visiting PP’s Green Choices page and wondering if they would take it down.  It’s a flagrant pack of B.S. coming from this chemical and bloody business model.  Without chemicals there would be no PPFA.  Today, we captured two screens in the event it is taken down.  Read it an laugh.

The “Green Choices” of Planned Parenthood

We can’t think of anything more ridiculous than the killers and haters of human unborn babies educating us about “harmful toxins” in the environment that can cause “reproductive problems.” 

Who are they fooling?  Most pro-life people know that abortion and hormonal contraceptives are proven to cause reproductive problems such as ectopic pregnancy and sterility.  Of course, we are aware that the Green Movement is popular with the primary targets of PPFA:  females of child-bearing age.  In other words, our daughters, sisters, nieces, and neighbors.

GREEN CHOICES 1GREEN CHOICES 2

Note:  Our Comments are in red-brown.

Planned Parenthood warns us about toxic chemicals — while dismissing those toxic chemicals that they sell or give to young girls and women, namely the cancer risk of the abortion pill and hormonal contraceptives:

“What Are Toxic Chemicals?

“Not all chemicals are harmful, but studies show that toxic chemicals can affect our hormones and can cause cancer and Parkinson’s disease. They can also cause learning disabilities, reproductive problems, birth defects, and other health problems.

Danger-Lead“While some toxins occur naturally in the environment, most of the toxic chemicals we live with every day are man made. Harmful pesticides can be found in fruits and vegetables. Artificial hormones can be found in meat and dairy products. Chemicals that can disrupt our endocrine system can be found in soap, shampoo, makeup, and other personal care products.”Because toxic chemicals are found in our daily environment, these chemicals affect people of all ages in all places. Pregnant women, children, and infants are especially at risk.”
Then, there is this — they have the gall to preach about common household products that can “disrupt your hormones and make it harder to get pregnant” and increase your risk of cancer!
“Are Cleaning Products Bad for My Health?
“Some cleaning products contain chemicals that could increase your risk of cancer and other health problems. Products that are most likely to be harmful include drain cleaner, oven cleaner, and toilet bowl cleaner.
Personal-Care-1“Some cleaning products can disrupt your hormones, which can change the start of puberty in young teens. If you’re a woman, disrupted hormones may make it harder to get pregnant, change your menstrual cycle, and increase your risk of miscarriage and breast cancer. If you’re a man, disrupted hormones may lower your sperm count and increase your risk of testicular cancer.
“Keep cleaning products away from children and pets, and call the National Poison Center (1-800-222-1222) if anyone has an accident with one.”  Read more here.

Rally in Sacramento: Defund Planned Parenthood

20150728_115902Woodrow and Nina D. Rhea at rally in front of Planned Parenthood on “B” Street, Sacramento.

Update 7/29/2015:  Video on SacBee…all 36 seconds.

There were approx. 200 good souls at the Women Betrayed Rally [ http://www.womenbetrayed.com/].
Speakers included young people hurt by Planned Parenthood.  One woman said she told PP by phone that she changed her mind and decided not to go through with the abortion.  PP told her that her life was threatened and tried pressuring her to come back to their center.  She was outraged and said, no, I’m keeping my baby.  She brought her little boy, now 2, to the rally.
The default position at Planned Parenthood is abortion.  98% of services for pregnant girls and women at PP is abortion.
We brought our Defund Planned Parenthood signs.  Rally organizer Wynette Sills of Sacramento and director of Californians for Life told the crowd we must defund PP.  However, none of the speakers gave specific details on how to defund the abortion giant.  I heard that Senate Speaker Mitch McConnell blocked a bill to defund PP and that Sen. Ted Cruz rubbed McConnell’s nose in it.
Psychological Warfare by Planned Parenthood
jvc-kaboom-boomboxStaffers at PP strategically placed a loud boom box on the grounds of PP’s parking lot.  It blared music from a rock radio station, ads and all, the entire time we were there which was one full hour.  This made it almost impossible to hear the speakers or pray or converse.  (It reminded us of the U.S. troop’s stakeout of Panamanian drug lord Manuel Noriega for which the troops blared loud music nonstop for five days or more.)

Press Release: Sacramento Rally

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TUESDAY, JULY 28, 2015

Contact:  Nina D. Rhea, Director, West Coast Pro-Life, Sacramento

http://WestCoastProLife.wordpress.com

Pro-life organizations throughout the United States will rally today to raise awareness of their opposition to human tissue trafficking.  The Women Betrayed Rally [http://www.womenbetrayed.com/] is organized by the young people in our country who are 100% against abortion and trafficking baby body parts.

In the Sacramento area, the rally will commence at Noon at the Planned Parenthood located at “B” and 29th Streets at 201 29th.

Organizers are motivated by the enormous outrage building in the country against human fetal tissue and body part trafficking in the medical research labs of our country.  California is home to several of these labs that buy human fetal tissue.

Today marks the third undercover video release which exposes doctors and staffers at Planned Parenthood.

Nina D. Rhea comments:

“The time has come for the federal government to pull the plug and defund Planned Parenthood.  Pro-lifers have known for decades that what Planned Parenthood does is worse than you think.  The release of undercover videos proves it.  In the end, it may be found to be a semi-legal business transaction but it doesn’t make it acceptable to most Americans.  Trafficking human body parts, in addition to legal abortion, is yet another practice by Planned Parenthood that is unacceptable to the majority of Americans.  Our country is a democracy and the American people never had a say in the legalization of abortion; it was accomplished in a courtroom behind closed doors.  Never has the false promise of cures for human diseases via fetal stem cells been proved.”

Assisted Suicide Bill Fails in California

SB 128 – CA Assisted Suicide Authors Will Not Pursue Bill Further in 2015

Tim Rosales.  Californians Against Assisted Suicide.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The No On SB 128/Californians Against Assisted Suicide coalition issued the following statement today from Marilyn Golden, No On SB 128 co-chair and Senior Policy Analyst for the Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund:

“What was seemingly inevitable just a month ago has seen increasing opposition due to a broad, bipartisan coalition that has worked tirelessly to inform California legislators about our policy concerns with assisted suicide.

“Those of us advocating on behalf of disability rights organizations understand that choice is a myth in the context of our health care reality. End-of-life treatment options are already limited for millions of people—constrained by poverty, disability discrimination, and other obstacles. Adding this so-called ‘choice’ into our dysfunctional healthcare system will push people into cheaper lethal options. There is no assurance everyone will be able to choose treatment over suicide; no material assistance for families of limited means who are struggling to care for loved ones; no meaningful protection from abusive family members or caregivers.”

Coalition coordinator Tim Rosales followed, “Throughout the country we have seen assisted suicide proposals begin with very high approval ratings only to go down to defeat. In 2012, the Massachusetts Ballot Question 2 voter initiative began with nearly 70% approval in many public opinion polls only to go down to defeat 51% to 49%. Already this year we have seen assisted suicide legislation fail in Connecticut, Maryland, Colorado, New Hampshire, Maine, Delaware and Nevada. The more people learn about the issue, the more public opinion turns against it.”

Background: Assisted suicide has only been passed in 3 states – Oregon (voter initiative), Washington (voter initiative) and Vermont (legislation). In 2015, assisted suicide legislation was defeated in states including Connecticut, Maryland, Colorado, Maine, Delaware and Nevada. Similar legislation is currently stalled in New York and New Jersey. 

In the State Senate, SB 128 passed by a floor vote of 23-15. Democrat Senator Tony Mendoza voted in opposition with Sen. Ben Hueso (D) abstaining and Sen.

Assisted Suicide Partners: The AIDS Movement and Compassion & Choices

Tracking the AIDS and assisted suicide movements.

“Born during the AIDS epidemic, Compassion & Choices’ work on aid in dying always included large contingents of LGBT individuals, educated or not.”….Barbara Coombs Lee, President Compassion & Choices.  May 2014.

New York Times

“EUGENE, Ore.  Feb. 8, 1990 Derek Humphry gained fame when he helped his first wife commit suicide to end her agony from terminal breast cancer at the age of 42.

Less than a year later he married Ann Wickett Humphry, and together they founded the Hemlock Society, dedicated to what they call ”assisted suicide” and ”self-deliverance” for the dying.

Now, Ann Humphry has developed breast cancer herself. And Derek Humphry has left her, 15 years after his first wife, Jean, drank a cup of coffee laced with secobarbital and codeine he had mixed for her.

Obscure Group Is Shaken

The dissolution of the Humphrys’ marriage under such circumstances has shaken the Hemlock Society, a once obscure group that has seen its controversial message of voluntary euthanasia become vastly more accepted in recent years as a result of the AIDS epidemic.

Today’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court is a political statement against decency.

Why the traditional Latin Mass?

The prayers said by the priest are from God.

U.S. Senate Bill could ‘nudge’ the elderly to choose premature death

S. 1549 The Care Planning Act of 2015 Introduced in U.S. Senate

Two Articles:

1.  Care Planning Act Introduced in U.S. Senate by Wesley Smith

Excerpt

This bill would – no doubt in my mind – enable Compassion and Choices [C & C] to meet its ambition of becoming the Planned Parenthood of death by receiving government/insurance funding. From the bill:
C) The requirements established by the Secretary under subparagraph (A)(ii) shall include a requirement that interdisciplinary team members (except for the chosen chaplain, minister, or personal religious or spiritual advisor) have training and experience in delivering person-directed planning services and in team-based delivery of services for individuals with dementing illness and individuals with a serious or life threatening illness.

C & C primarily pushes assisted suicide, but also pretends to be about such counseling. It has worked with federal legislators before on worming itself into federal funding. If passed, I believe his bill would give the organization access to Medicare funds.

Last week, U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) introduced S. 1549, the Care Planning Act of 2015, to use federal tax dollars to pay health care professionals to counsel older people in deciding whether to accept or reject life-preserving medical treatment, food and fluids.

On its face, S. 1549 purports to promote neutral, fully informed “advance care planning” that will assist patients to implement their own values in legally valid directives. Unfortunately, however, there is abundant evidence, documented in the March 2015 NRLC report “The Bias Against Life-Preserving Treatment in Advance Care Planning,” that a combination of cost pressures and the ideological commitment of a significant number of health care providers to hastening death for those deemed to have a “poor quality of life” would in practice lead to many federally funded advance care planning sessions being used to exercise subtle – or not-so-subtle – pressure to agree to reject life-preserving treatment.

Entities conducting such programs openly boast of how much money they have saved insurance companies by inducing patients to reject expensive life-saving medical treatment. Advocates believe it will save Medicare money as well.

The pervasive focus of the Institute of Medicine September 2014 report “Dying in America” is summed up in its statement, “Because most people who participate in effective advance care planning choose maximizing independence and quality of life over living longer, advance care planning can potentially save health care costs . . . .”  (What this statement effectively means is that the Institute of Medicine report authors expect that “most people” receiving advance care planning counseling will come to agree they would rather die than live with dependence or a poor quality of life, and therefore will agree to forego expensive treatment that could preserve their lives when they are “not worth living.”)

West Coast Pro-Life admits there are no specific citations of C&C in the bill.  But we found this:

Following is a preliminary list of organizations that have endorsed the Care Planning Act:

Los Angeles: Archbishop Gomez, assisted suicide bill is empty compassion

For Archbishop Gomez, assisted suicide bill is empty compassion :: Catholic News Agency (CNA).

.- People suffering from terminal illness deserve true compassion and care – not violence, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles said as the California legislature’s assisted suicide bill advances.

“It is a failure of public leadership and moral imagination to respond to human suffering by making it easier for people to kill themselves,” he said in his June 9 column for The Tidings.

Assisted suicide offers a “hollow” compassion, Archbishop Gomez said.

“Helping someone to die – even if that person asks for that help – is still killing. And killing is not compassion, it is killing,” he said. “It is responding to the needs of our neighbors with indifference, with the cold comfort of death.”

He called for California to become “a vanguard of true compassion for the dying.”
