Pro-Abortion Blogger Gives 9 Reasons to Abort a Child

A blogger for a “parenting” website called “Mommyish” recently compiled a list of reasons to kill your unborn child. I’m not sure if the irony of a parenting website advocating for killing kids is lost on the blogger or not. But here’s the list:

1. Having a baby would endanger your life.
2. Your birth control failed.
3. You don’t want to have a child because of your career.
4. You feel you are too young.
5. You feel you are too old.
6. You feel strongly about overpopulation.
7. You are worried about the health of the baby.
8. You want no relationship with the person who got you pregnant.
9. You don’t want to have a child.

Do you notice the central word in all of these reason? It seems the only thing that should matter is “you.” Evidently the life of a unique human being is of no consequence to this blogger. I am particularly irritated by reason number 7 as the blogger suggests that if you are worried about the health of the baby you should just kill the child. Should we then kill the elderly if we are concerned their health is declining. What about accident victims and war vets whose lives are forever changed and whose health is now a concern. This is absurdity at its finest. Click here for original article.

Engaging Weekend: Girls Should Use Private Bathroom at School, Colorado College Invents New Genders, New York City Mayor Opposes Care Pregnancy Centers

High school: Girls should avoid restroom if they’re bothered by transgender boy in the stalls

The future of our politically correct public schools is so backwards it’s hard to imagine. The case of a “transgender” boy in Colorado using the girls’ bathroom and being accused of harassing female students is just the beginning. The school has denied any harassment took place, threatened the girls complaining with hate crimes for speaking out, and then concluded the matter was closed when police could not get any of the girls to talk. If that sounds strange wait until you hear what the school suggests the girls do if they are bothered by having a boy in their bathroom. “What the school officials have told the girls is that in order to maintain their privacy they can use a single restroom at the office which is not always available and is some distance from a lot of classes.” That’s right. The school told the majority that they should use a private bathroom while the single minority is given free access to the public school bathroom. And while transgender people scream with anger when such a suggestion is given in order to accommodate them, the school seems happy with such a solution for their large majority of girls. What happens when 200 girls want to use that bathroom? Absurdity at its finest. Click here for original article.

Chris Christie Proves America is Indeed Pro-Life

LifeNews.com: “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is pro-life and vetoed Planned Parenthood funding five times before he ran for re-election in a state that is not known as a bastion of conservatism. While abortion activists and the media elite claim Republicans can’t win on a pro-life platform — saying they are supposedly engaging in a War on Women instead, Christie proved them wrong. Christie decisively won a second term in office in a heavily Democratic state and media outlets wasted little time calling the state for him almost immediately after polls closed. He defeated pro-abortion Democrat Barbara Buono handily, despite the kind of attraction groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL and Emily’s List say pro-abortion women are supposed to have. Christie won 56% of women, 45% of Hispanics, and 21% of black voters, according to CNN exit polling data.”

These election results blow all the abortion industry talking points out of the water. Women overwhelmingly supported Christie, so did minorities. Once again the message that Americans are pro-life is coming through loud and clear. I wonder why more West Virginia lawmakers don’t run a strong pro-life campaign and then follow it up by vetoing bills that make tax payers pay for abortions? Currently, every citizen in West Virginia helps to fund the abortion industry and our lawmakers don’t seem interested in changing that. Perhaps we need our own Chris Christie to run.

Abortion Supporters Want “19 Kids and Counting” Canceled

A little belatedly abortion advocates are riled up because “19 Kids and Counting” star Jim Bob Duggar dared to compare abortion to the holocaust. Let’s see, several million human lives extinguished against their will with no say in the matter, versus, 54 million human lives extinguished against their will with no say in the matter. Yep, sounds like a holocaust to me. But liberals are all fired up at what they consider an absurd comparison. Here’s what Duggar said:

“That’s where we’re at in our nation. Do we want our children, when we’re going to tell them about how great America was, they’re going to look at you and say, ‘Why didn’t somebody do something?’…Let me clarify. We have since 1973 (when Roe v. Wade was decided) had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust.” This obviously realistic comparison has not stopped abortion advocates from petitioning TLC to cancel the famed “19 Kids and Counting” show. Absurdity at its finest. Click here for original article.

Enrolling in ObamaCare? You Will Support Abortion

Some might not realize that simply enrolling in ObamaCare will ensure that you support the abortion industry. A portion of your insurance premium will be set aside to help women obtain abortions. Sure, Obama promise no money would be used for abortion; so did Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and others. But our president has shown that he cannot be trusted and will say whatever he needs to pass a bill. So teh reality is that your money will be used to pay for abortions. A recent article highlights this fact:

“From a pro-life perspective, the most important fact is that massive federal premium subsidies will go to Exchange plans that cover elective abortion (a sharp departure from the longstanding policy of the Hyde Amendment), and every enrollee in the plan will have a portion of the enrollee’s premium placed into a separate account for elective abortions (dubbed the “abortion surcharge”). But this is just one example of how the Obama administration is implementing ObamaCare in a way so as to advance the abortion industry.”

In my home state of West Virginia, every citizen pays for the abortion industry in our state. Through medicare/medicaid and social security our lawmakers are forcing us to help fund the abortion industry. ObamaCare will be a further encroachment on our pro-life values.

Do You Know if Your Insurance Plan Covers Abortion?

The Congressional Pro-Life Caucus: Wednesday, the D.C. HealthLink posted a new Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) clarifying which plans on the D.C. HealthLink will cover elective abortions and which ones will not.  This information is consistent with information from other sources. The FAQ says:

Question: Which health plans offered through DC Health Link include coverage for elective abortions and which plans do not?

Answer: Health plans that do not provide coverage for elective abortions include all Aetna health plans, as well as the multi-state plans (MSP) offered by CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (only the plans that include “Multi-State Plan” in their name).   All health plans offered by Kaiser Permanente, United Healthcare, and CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield plans that do not include “Multi-State Plan” in their name include coverage for elective abortions.

Background: This FAQ was made available in response to an article by  Anna Higgins, Director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council.  Anna tried to identify which plans in the D.C. HealthLink excluded abortion.  Telephone representatives for the D.C. HealthLink erroneously informed Anna that all plans on the D.C. exchange include elective abortion.  When Anna published her article about her experience, she was quickly contacted by D.C. officials who apologized, gave the information included in the FAQ, and informed her that their staff would be retrained on the subject. The FAQ is a step in the right direction although abortion coverage is still not easily identifiable when browsing plans on the D.C. exchange.

Such lack of transparency regarding abortion coverage is not isolated to D.C.  It has proven to be a nearly universal problem in the exchanges.  Even Secretary Sebelius was unable to give a clear answer on the subject when asked by Rep. John Shimkus at the Energy and Commerce Hearing yesterday.  To address this problem, Rep. Chris Smith has introduced the “Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act”, H.R. 3279.  This bill would reverse the secrecy clause in the ACA and require that all plans on the exchanges disclose whether or not the plan includes abortion.  If the plan includes abortion, the plan must also disclose the amount of the abortion surcharge.

Question: Which plans in West Virginia cover abortion and which do not? Does anyone know?

Planned Parenthood Helping ObamaCare While Breaking the Law

“A Planned Parenthood chapter operating as an official Obamacare navigator location gives out abortion pills too late in pregnancies and allows non-physicians to give out the pills…Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) – which received U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant money to enroll people in the Obamacare exchanges — ignored FDA safety protocols by giving out abortion pills past 49 days of pregnancy and allowed non-physicians to give out the pills…”

Not surprising that Planned Parenthood is helping get people into ObamaCare. You might not know it, but Planned Parenthood stands to gain millions of dollars from people who enroll in ObamaCare and then seek abortions. But as usual, Planned Parenthood is breaking the law and acting like it’s no big deal. I guess when you have the president as an ally it doesn’t really matter what laws you obey and break. If the president can do it, so can his allies. Click here for original article.

ObamaCare Explained with a Hamburger

Some folks are having trouble understanding why ObamaCare is such a bad bill and needs to be repealed. Recently, a doctor sought to find a way to explain the bill in a way that would make sense to normal folks who don’t speak political double-speak. His analogy using a hamburger does just that. He said:

“Suppose a customer orders a $3 quarter-pounder. The clerk says, ‘Well, you’re in luck because the government has just said that you can buy it for $2.50. But, 15 percent of the population basically can’t afford the $2.50, so we need you to contribute the mandatory voluntary contribution’ of $1.00. It’s really popular with the 15 percent group, and so we don’t have as many. So we’re losing money, so we’ve had to decrease the value to an eighth-pounder, from a quarter-pounder, and by the way, you can only have two even though you wanted four, and you can pick it up in three or four days,’”

Did you notice the use of terms such as “mandatory voluntary”? ObamaCare is doing what the Constitution strictly forbids, forcing people to buy a product. In addition to this very well worded example, ObamaCare will force millions of Americans to violate their conscience and religious convictions by funding abortion. So we have a bill that violates the Constitution in at least two ways. That’s why we’re upset and opposing it. Click here for original article.

Virginia Governor’s Race About More Than Just ObamaCare

Here’s how one article reported the support for a liberal running for Governor in Virginia: “Obama’s pitch for McAuliffe constituted a last-minute push by the White House and prominent Democrats to close the deal in the race’s final days. McAuliffe, the former Democratic National Committee chairman, has had help from former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Vice President Joe Biden was to do his part Monday, and first lady Michelle Obama lent her voice to radio ads backing McAuliffe.”

It seems McAuliffe has all the President’s men (and women) supporting him. I can only speak for myself, but that would be enough to make me want to hear from “the other guy.” McAuliffe is a liberal that supports abortion on demand, ObamaCare, marriage redefinition, and big government. What interests me is that he is very different than many of our lawmakers in West Virginia, and yet Virginia has common sense health and safety restrictions on abortion. While all most of our lawmakers claim to be pro-life, we still don’t even measures similar to a state that supported President Obama in the last election. That’s a problem.

Engaging Weekend: Baptists in Kentucky Consider Hiring Homosexuals, Court Reinstates Texas Abortion Laws, Rally Held to Expose Abortion in ObamaCare

FPC-BlogUpdate-EngagingWeek

Engaging Weekend is a collection of articles you might have missed over the weekend. But we thought they were important and wanted to make sure you had a chance to read them.

Hiring of homosexual employees being considered by Ky. Baptist child care agency

A Baptist ministry to children is considering changing its hiring policy to allow for hiring homosexuals. A recent article states: “The president of the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s children’s services agency has recommended that the organization amend its hiring practices to ban discrimination against homosexuals, according to a PowerPoint presentation posted on the agency’s website… Trustees were scheduled to vote on the proposal during their Nov. 8 meeting. One trustee, Rick Fyffe, resigned in protest. Another, Stan Spees, is being threatened with removal from the board for voicing his opposition publicly to the change.” The heart of the issue is…federal funding. The ministry receives most of its annual budget from the federal government and while it won’t openly admit that funding is the issue, it is clear that such is the case. The embattled president of the ministry said: “A church or religious organization can hire all Christians and hold them to their standards…but they cannot accept state/federal monies. Sunrise cannot meet the needs of today’s abused and neglected children without public assistance.” First, he is dead wrong. The federal government cannot discriminate in handing out funds just because an organization is religious and adheres to the tenets of its faith. Second, you cannot serve God and money. This is a sad situation in which a leader appears willing to compromise his convictions in order to secure money. What next? Click here for the original article.
