Students: Tell Them Abortion Kills Your Brothers and Sisters!

Rocklin, California – a suburb located 25 mi. outside of Sacramento.

In the news below, a female pro-abortion student claims that “abortion has nothing to do with schools.”

Nothing to do with school students? 


High School students are organizing a pro-life walk-out.  Here is the latest:

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 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!

Saint Teresa of Calcutta & Father Frank Pavone

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.

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.


“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


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.
Christy O’Donnell at the hearing on Video.  She sounded fine.  She stood in the hallway at the capitol for pictures.  Where is she today?

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



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:

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.


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:

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 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.

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…

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.”

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 [].
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.

Press Release: Sacramento Rally


TUESDAY, JULY 28, 2015

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

Pro-life organizations throughout the United States will rally today to raise awareness of their opposition to human tissue trafficking.  The Women Betrayed Rally [] 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.”


West Coast Pro-Life is an independent internet resource which provides authentic Catholic pro-life education to our readers and subscribers.  A retired public health educator, Nina D. Rhea is a researcher and blogger and resides in Sacramento. Currently, our primary focus is to inform the public about bioethics (human tissue and organ donation) and the evolving end-of-life health care (do not resuscitate forms, the POLST form, advance directives, euthanasia, and palliative care).

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. Richard Pan (D) abstaining in both the Senate Health Committee and floor votes. All Republicans voted no. The bill has now been pulled from the Assembly Health Committee a second time due to broad opposition.

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


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:

  • AARP
  • AARP – Virginia
  • Alliance for Aging Research
  • Alzheimer’s Foundation
  • AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine
  • American Association for Long Term Care Nursing
  • American Geriatrics Society
  • American Health Care Association
  • American Heart Association
  • Augusta Health

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.”


Planned Parenthood Insider Now Works for Assisted Suicide Group |

Planned Parenthood Insider Now Works for Assisted Suicide Group |


When Compassion & Choices, formerly The Hemlock Society, convened its June 2012 conference, former Planned Parenthood insider Theresa Connor, now director of government affairs with the assisted suicide group, was a featured speaker. She was public policy director for PP in Washington state for 15 years and instituted the research and strategy behind the 2001 Erickson v. Bartell case “that required employers’ insurance plans to cover prescription birth control under anti-discrimination laws.

Connor joined Compassion & Choices’ president, Barbara Coombs Lee, author of Oregon’s “Death with Dignity” Act, were co-speakers at the conference on “the strategies for success in affirming and protecting end-of-life liberty, including aid in dying in the states.”

“Learn how you, as an end-of-life advocate,” the program says, “can work with reproductive justice and LGBT allies to defeat refusal legislation at the state and federal levels.” The topic of the presentation was “Legislating Medicine and Morality.”

How The Evil View Human Life: The Third Man

In Graham Greene’s The Third Man, Harry Lime justifies violence and murdering innocent human beings.

The Third Man. 1949.

Scene: Harry Lime is hiding from police. He is the leader of a black market gang that robbed penicillin from the military hospital to adulterate (weaken) it and resell it. This caused the death and anomalies of many children. His friend Holly Martins catches up with him. They ride a Ferris wheel and talk.

Martins:  Have you ever seen any of your victims?

Harry Lime: Victims? Don’t be melodramatic. Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax – the only way you can save money nowadays.

Nobody thinks in terms of human beings. Governments don’t. Why should we? They talk about the people and the proletariat, I talk about the suckers and the mugs – it’s the same thing. They have their five-year plans, so have I.

Martins: You used to believe in God.

Harry Lime: Oh, I still do believe in God, old man. I believe in God and mercy and all that. But the dead are happier dead. They don’t miss much here, poor devils.

Assisted Suicide Advocates Lie About 2014 California Poll Results

Today we examine polling data conducted for The Hemlock Society, dba Compassion and Choices

POLL No. 1 – Goodwin Simon polled 500 Californians by telephone.  {Population of California = 38.33 Million.}

The Hemlock Society, dba Compassion & Choices, is bragging that 64% of polled Californians would support “aid in dying”.  The poll was conducted in October 2014.


Here is a California ballot measure that may be on the ballot in an upcoming election. Here is how it might read:

The Death with Dignity Act would give a terminally ill person, who is mentally competent, the right to request and receive a prescription for life-ending medication from a physician.

If the election were held today, would you vote to favor or to oppose this ballot measure?

Strongly Favor 36%, Somewhat Favor 26%, Lean Favor 2% = 64%

  • C&C deliberately included “Somewhat Favor” and “Lean Favor” in their TOTAL FAVOR result of 64%.

Satan is the Prince of Lies.

POLL No. 2 – Harris Polls, online polling of 2,272 adults in the U.S. Nov. 12 and 26.

“How much do you agree with the following statement?  Individuals who are terminally ill, in great pain and who have no chance for recovery, have the right to choose to end their own life.”

Very Much Agree 54%, Somewhat Agree 20% = Total Agree 74%

  • Once again, C&C added together “Very Much Agree” with “Somewhat Agree.”
  • Pain can be controlled.

Blumenauer Leads Letter Urging Inclusion of End-of-Life Care Planning in Medicare and Medicaid

Our advice:  HIRE A LAWYER, TOO!


Blumenauer Leads Letter Urging Inclusion of End-of-Life Care Planning in Medicare and Medicaid.

Washington, DC – Today, Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), along with 33 other Members of the House of Representatives, sent a letter to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator, Marilyn Tavenner, to adopt recommendations that would adequately reimburse Medicare providers for having voluntary discussions about end-of-life care and planning with patients.

Currently, the time doctors spend having discussions with their patients about end-of-life care and planning is not reimbursed under Medicaid and Medicare. Without this incentive, these conversations are not happening.

A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that more than one in four elderly Americans lacked the capacity to make their own medical care decisions at the end of life. Under those circumstances, care decisions fall to family members and doctors who may not know the treatment preferences of their loved one. Elderly patients with advance directives, however, are more likely to receive the care they want. Evidence also demonstrates that advance care planning and end-of-life discussions reduce stress, anxiety, and depression in surviving loved ones.

“Patients who wish to make clear their goals, values, and wishes through discussions with their trusted providers should have the opportunity to do so,” said Blumenauer. “In order to have these conversations, providers must have the adequate time, space, and reimbursement to conduct the complex and time-consuming discussions necessary to learn about the goals and values held by their patients and plan appropriately for their care. “

“Every organization that has seriously considered this issue, from the American Medical Association to the Institutes of Medicine, knows we have to start respecting people’s choices about how they face the end of life,” continued Blumenauer. “Making this simple change will have a profound effect on the way patients and their families spend their final days, and everyone deserves that dignity.”

The other signers of the letter are:

Henry A. Waxman (CA-33), Suzanne Bonamici (OR-01), Peter DeFazio (OR-04)*, Ted Deutch (FL-19), Sander Levin (MI-09), Jim McDermott (WA-07), Lois Capps (CA-24), Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), Keith Ellison (MN-05), Sam Farr (CA-17), Rush Holt (NJ-12), Rick Larsen (WA-02), Barbara Lee (CA-09), Betty McCollum (MN-04), James P.
