    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 3/30/2011

    “Tomorrow will mark the sixth anniversary of Terri Schindler Schiavo's tragic death from court-ordered dehydration. It was the first time in our country's history that a judge ordered a feeding tube be removed from a disabled person.

In his latest address, given in Fargo, ND, on February 25, 2011, he provides some "dos" and "don'ts" for building a culture of life. Here is the link for the ( full text. ... ”

  • Flawed Reasoning - 2
    Post by Bob Laird, 3/18/2011

    “Patricia Bainbridge makes a key point in ther recent post on Flawed Reasoning. - that when comparing the number of deaths due to the death penalty and the number of deaths due to abortion, the ratio is astounding. Working within the pro-life movement, those numbers become sort of a management tool. In Virginia the number of deaths due to abortion is around 25,000 per year and the number of deaths due to the death penalty is always less than 10. So, I would rationalize that if I spend 10 minutes working on stopping the death penalty for an individual, I needed to work 417 hours stopping abortion. Yes, the 10 individuals who died for a crime that they committed may have been wronged and may have deserved something better than the death penalty, but the 25,000 babies who died due to abortion have no one to stand up for lawyer to plead their case in each court up to the Supreme Court. ... ”

  • De-Funding Public Radio
    Post by Stu Nolan, 3/18/2011

  • Court Holds State Interest in Protecting Children from Christian Values
    And Hundreds of Anglicans Restore Communion with Rome - Post by Stu Nolan, 3/18/2011

    “It is not the law of the land in America, at least not yet, but is the United Kingdom illuminating just where the slippery slope leads? At the promoting of the state-sponsored Equality and Human Rights Commission, a UK court there has held that a couple seeking to be foster parents could not do so because their Christian beliefs might "infect" the children and make them intolerant of the "rights" of homosexuals. The court found that the UK is a secular state, notwithstanding the fact this it still has a monarchy which presides over the Church of England. A full report by Paul Diamond can be found on National Review Online by clicking ( here. ... ”

  • Flawed Reasoning
    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 3/17/2011

    “Regardless of whether you support or oppose the death penalty for convicted criminals, you have to wonder why so many people who work so hard to outlaw capital punishment, have little or no regard for those innocent human beings who are killed by abortion. In fact, many who strive to enact laws eliminating the death penalty actually work to keep abortion legal. ... ”

  • Planned Parenthood's Myth that Birth Control Reduces the Need for Abortion
    Post by Gerri Laird, 3/5/2011

    “In response to the passage of Rep. Mike Pence's amendment to bar Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds for any purpose, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, commented "...It is difficult to understand why people who say they are opposed to abortion would do so much to undermine the family planning and contraception that helps prevent the need for it..." Writer Kirsten Powers initially agreed with these words and opposed cutting off government funding for Planned Parenthood...until she did ( a little research ("Busting the Birth-Control Myth," The Daily Beast, March 4, 2011). ... ”
