PPFA Is A Greedy Predator for Our Taxes and Souls

Planned Parenthood and the Public Purse

cli_logo

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

Rather than real science or reason, Jewish belief is the overriding premise about the inhumanity of the fetus in the Bill Nye article

  • Jewish belief:  the fetus is not human until it is born.

In that same article are quotes by “Scott Gilbert, an internationally recognized Jewish professor of biology at Swarthmore College. His controversial statements, made at a November 2007 Vatican conference, titled ‘Ontogeny and Human Life,’ about embryos, and his stand about when they become human beings, created an uproar that continues to resonate on both sides of the issue, in worlds both secular and sacred.  “Jewish Biologist, Vatican View on Embryos?”

Bill Nye trusts fraudulent science when it come to man-made global warming.  “Bill Nye:  Global Warming Bedwetter.”

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.

Crisis Magazine Special Reports

 

 “Bishops Betrayed On Assisted Suicide.”  Crisis Magazine.  2011.​ Our bishops “efforts are being undermined by ethics and law professors at several Jesuit universities.​​”​ ​  Includes non-Catholics and ordained priests.​

Prof. Emeritus Charles Hillel Baron taught Law & Bioethics for 40 years at Boston U.​, a Jesuit university.  In an amicus brief  he argued for Terri Schiavo to die by dehydration and starvation.
  • Baron helped develop model legislation legalizing euthanasia.
  • Baron serves on the board of directors of the Death With Dignity National Center, which is the organization most responsible for Oregon’s Death With Dignity law and has promoted similar laws in Maine, Hawaii, and Vermont.​
  • ​He exposed his students to positive views on euthanizing newborns and retarded people.

​A Cardinal Neuman Society Report, “Teaching Euthanasia.”​  Crisis Mag. Online 2005.  “Professors from top Catholic universities helped convince the courts and the public that removing her [Terri Schiavo’s] feeding tube was acceptable and consistent with Catholic teaching — even while the Vatican said it was euthanasia.​​”​   (Page 6 & 7 cover the scandal against Pope John Paul II’s teachings re nutrition and hydration, which was disputed by the liberal professors; they claim that the pope was “pandering to the right-to-lifers.”

The Jerry Brown Way

1988.  I’ve come to appreciate more deeply the values and traditions that I learned as a Jesuit seminarian.  One fundamental principle they taught in the Jesuit seminary, is what they call in Latin, agere contra — it means “go against yourself.”  Whole Earth Review.

2015.  What’s unacceptable becomes acceptable.  Los Angeles Times.

Agere contra.  Do the opposite for Christ.   Reject worldliness.

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:

1. Change the…

AARP Is Fixated On Death, Just Like Compassion and Choices

Offensive, crude, unnecessary.

The AARP Promotes Reading Material, Radio Programs and Magazine Articles that appear to be taken right off of Barbara Coombs Lee’s coffee table.

Lee

She’s the death of the party.

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?

Note:  When you hear or read that “most people” or “boomers” — in the context of accepting the new trends in end of life discussion, advance care directives, do not resuscitate orders — just say, Speak For Yourself!

They also like to shame the rest of us by saying that our culture is death phobic.  Speak For Yourself!

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.
