If enacted, Freedom Of Choice Act would obliterate hundreds of state laws that protect women, parents, children, and health care workers, while forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for millions of abortions. It would overturn commonsense laws like parental notification, conscience protections, abortion waiting periods, informed consent, and regulations for women's health. This bill would among other things completely nullify the national ban on partial-birth abortion that the Supreme Court upheld on April 18 Gonzales v. Carhart.
This means partial birth abortion would be legal again. Here is the 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:
A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
This is truly a holocaust on the innocent, America’s hidden holocaust. Over a million human beings are slaughtered every year and Americans just ignore the violence because it is done in the privacy of doctor's office. see this site for stats: http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/2006/08/03/ab_incidence.pdf
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, orignial founder of NARAL, now a pro-life advocate stated:
“I’m going to set it against my Jewish heritage and the Holocaust in Europe. The abortion holocaust is beyond the ordinary discourse of morality and rational condemnation. It is not enough to pronounce it absolutely evil. Absolute evil used to characterize this abortion tragedy (43 million and counting) is an inept formulation. The abortion tragedy is a new event, severed from connections with traditional presuppositions of history, psychology, politics and morality. It extends beyond the deliberations of reason, beyond the discernments of moral judgment, beyond meaning itself. It trivializes itself to call itself merely a holocaust or a tragedy. It is, in the words of Arthur Cohen, perhaps the world’s leading scholar on the European Holocaust, a mysterium tremendum, an utter mystery to the rational mind—a mystery that carries with it not only the aspect of vastness, but the resonance of terror, something so unutterably diabolic as to be literally unknowable to us. This is an evil torn free of its moorings in reason and causality, an ordinary secular corruption raised to unimaginable powers of magnification and limitless extremity."
"The legality of abortion is really an embarrassment to a civilized society. How ”enlightened” are we, really, if we can sit back and just let this happen? How civilized are we, that we let our innocent children be slaughtered?
Who will hear the cries of these pre-born children? Who will be their voice? Who will mourn their deaths?
Planned Parenthood laments the fact that they’re increasingly unable to find doctors with the “skill” and “courage” to provide abortions. How much skill does it take to forcibly tear off an infant’s head? How much courage does it take to rip an infant apart? Well, enough courage to have to face these innocent human lives one day, to look at their perfect completion and know that you put an end to their earthly existence. Enough courage to look at their Creator, who knew them the moment they were conceived, even before, and to try to explain to Him how it was the “right” thing to do.
But make no mistake: our own action or inaction will be judged as well. When our Creator looks upon us one day, will he see us as willing accomplices in this tragedy? Or will he see our having done everything imaginable to give “the least of these” a voice?"
To all those who voted for Obama (or any pro-choice candidate), I ask how can you wash your hands of this - when you voted him (them) in???
I put up some photos from priestforlife.org. They are very disturbing. These photos break my heart. So why do I post these pictures? Because I know people who voted for Obama. I want all of these people who voted for Obama to see what evil practice they are legalizing by voting for him.
Look at the pictures of these babies and see if you can, with a clear conscience, justify your vote for Obama who would codify abortion into law, via the “Freedom of Choice Act,” and make it irreversible, who would require our tax dollars to fund the practice, and who voted to deny infants born alive medical care after failed attempts to kill them.
7 weeks old baby - killed by common procedure called the suction and curettage method. The abortionist begins by dilating the mom's cervix until it is large enough to allow a cannula to be inserted into her uterus. The cannula is a hollow plastic tube that is connected to a vacuum-type pump by a flexible hose. The abortionist runs the tip of the cannula along the surface of the uterus causing the baby to be dislodged and sucked into the tube - either whole or in pieces. Amniotic fluid and the placenta are likewise suctioned through the tube and, together with the other body parts, end up in a collection jar. Any remaining parts are scraped out of the uterus with a surgical instrument called a curette. Following that, another pass is made through the mom's uterus with the suction machine to help insure that none of the baby's body parts have been left behind. The contents of the collection jar are examined to assure that all fetal parts and an adequate amount of tissue commensurate with gestational age are present.
Late-term Abortions These babies were found in Dumpsters
This baby was burned to death by a saline abortion at 6 months. (A needle is inserted through the abdomen to remove amniotic fluid. A strong salt solution is then injected, which poisons the fetus and badly burns the lungs and skin. The child is usually delivered within 24 hours.)
This baby was killed by a prostaglandin abortion. (Where the mother is given a type of drug called "prostaglandins". These may be injected into the womb, or given as a pill. In either case, the drugs cause her to go into premature labor, with much stronger contractions than in normal labor. The fetus is normally crushed to death by the violent labor, but if not, and it is delivered alive, it will usually die within a few hours from exposure.)
"The largest baby retrieved from the dumpster behind the Michigan Avenue Medical Center-- 6 months, maybe closer to 7, killed by D & E abortion. Unlike all the other aborted babies that were retrieved, no identifying information on the clear plastic bag in which he was found. It is as if the abortionist, Regaldo Florendo, knew that he had miscalculated the baby’s gestational age, and knew this baby was very well-developed, enough to have lived outside the womb. In such a case, he would not have wanted to reveal anything about the child." What is a D & E abortion? The first task is remove the laminaria that had earlier been placed in the cervix to dilate it sufficiently to allow the "procedure." The abortionist uses a 14-French suction catheter. It is clear plastic and about nine inches long. It has a bore through the center approximately ¾ of an inch in diameter. He, then introduces the catheter through the cervix and turns on the suction machine which is connected through clear plastic tubing to the catheter. A pale yellow fluid that looks a lot like urine will come through the catheter into a glass bottle on the suction machine. This is amniotic fluid that was surrounding the baby in order to protect her. After the suction is complete, the abortionist will get the Sopher clamp. This instrument is about thirteen inches long and made of stainless steel. At one end are located jaws about 2 ½ inches long and about ¾ on an inch wide with rows of sharp ridges or teeth. This instrument is for grasping and crushing tissue. When it gets hold of something, it does not let go.
A second trimester D&E abortion is a blind procedure. The baby can be in any orientation or position inside the uterus. The abortionist reaches in with the Sopher clamp and grasps anything he can. At twenty weeks gestation, the uterus is thin and soft so he has to be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once he has grasped something inside, he squeezes on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard – really hard. Something pops and lets go and out pops a fully formed leg about 4 to 5 inches long. He reaches in again and grasps whatever he can. He sets the jaw and pulls really hard again and out pops an arm about the same length. He reaches in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.
The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a plum and is now free floating inside the uterine cavity. He knows he has it when he crushes down on the clamp and sees a pure white gelatinous material issue from the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. He then extracts the skull pieces, a little face may also come out.
I started this blog a few weeks before the 2008 election. I started it as a way to share articles, thoughts, quotes, pictures, videos, etc. with my family and friends that stand for truth, freedom, and conservative values . Yes, I do believe if we don't defend these conservative values, we will lose our freedoms. I invite all to read and to study the issues and find the facts. I am a Christian - (Latter Day Saint), so I will also post views from my church as well as views from the Catholic, Protestant Christians, and other Judeo-Christian Churches on political issues. John Adams' stated: "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion... Our constitution was made for a moral and religious people." "Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom. Freedom opens the windows of the soul so that man can discover his most profound beliefs and commune with God. Freedom and religion endure together, or perish alone. " I believe this statement to be true. Mitt Romney states:"Each religion has its own unique doctrines and history -but it is important to recognize that while differences in theology exist between the churches in America, we share a common creed of moral convictions. And where the affairs of our nation are concerned, it's usually a sound rule to focus on the latter - on the great moral principles that urge us all on a common course. Whether it was the cause of abolition, or civil rights, or the right to life itself, no movement of conscience can succeed in America that cannot speak to the convictions of religious people." I fully agree with him. We must all work together for the greater good. We are a nation 'Under God' and in God, we do indeed trust.
