Rick Warren, Bart Stupak and Obama – Do They All Agree?

Warren & Obama

Is Rick Warren going to jail?

Martinsburg, WV – Remember way back, what seems like forever ago, when “pro-life” Democrat Congressman Bart Stupak made an 11th hour deal with President Obama regarding Obamacare that secured Stupak’s vote and helped the unpopular socialistic bill pass? Stupak became the Benedict Arnold of the pro-life community and decided to retire rather than face a near impossible re-election campaign after his traitorous actions against the unborn. Stupak claimed Obamacare contained “conscience protections” for pro-life people, groups, organizations and businesses so he was confident in supporting Obama’s bill.

As I have previously written, conscience protections are under attack and in no way safe from the Obama administration’s desire to impose its will on everyone. And now it seems everyone from Rick Warren to Bart Stupak is realizing just how endangered our Constitutional rights are under the Obama administration.

If you haven’t seen the news lately you might be shocked to learn that President Obama has mandated that every employer offer health insurance to employees that include contraception, birth control, and abortion inducing drugs. This of course violates the pro-life conscience of many conservative and religious employers. Lifenews.com explains what is causing the massive backlash:

“The Obama Administration issued a statement re-iterating the ‘contraceptive mandate’ requiring all insurance providers cover the full range of FDA-approved drugs and devices would remain intact. This mandate, issued in August, includes drugs that work after conception to destroy life rather than prevent it. The statement included a postponement of one year for religious groups that do not already carry contraceptives and additionally would not be exempted under last year’s narrow definition of ‘religious employer.’”

The fact is, by demanding that any employer offer insurance with items like contraception, sterilization, abortion inducing drugs etc., they are being asked to violate their religious beliefs and their conscience. This is something our government has never demanded or asked of U.S. citizens, ever. And now the Obama administration is trying to force these employers to violate their religious convictions and consciences by offering such insurance; it’s an unprecedented attack on religious liberty and freedom.

Baby Joseph Succumbs to Disease, Dies at Home

Martinsburg, WV – You may have followed the story of baby Joseph Maraachli, a Canadian born child suffering from a rare medical condition that required a tracheotomy to help him breathe. This may not have been international news if it were not for the fact that Canadian hospitals refused to give the baby the procedure. This would be shocking if it were not for the fact that Canadian healthcare is socialized, much like the Obama administration would like to do with American healthcare under the Obamacare act.

Baby Joseph Maraachli

Baby Joseph and his Father Moe.

When the Maraachli’s were refused treatment for their baby boy International pro-life heavyweight Father Frank Pavone stepped in to lead the fight for Baby Joseph to receive the treatment in the US. Arrangements were finally made for the procedure to be done at a Catholic hospital in St. Louis. The treatment was done and then 15 month old Baby Joseph was doing well. But later complications caused Baby Joseph to suddenly die just six months after the procedure.

Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, the group that made all the arrangements for the Maraachli family made the following statement:

 “I learned with sadness tonight of the passing of Baby Joseph, and extend my prayers to his family,” Pavone said. “This young boy and his parents fulfilled a special mission from God. Amidst a Culture of Death where despair leads us to dispose of the vulnerable, they upheld a Culture of Life where hope leads us to welcome and care for the vulnerable.”

WARNING: The Photo Contained Here is Shocking!

by Nathan A. Cherry, 07/29/2011

Martinsburg, WV – There is a photo at the bottom of this page that is shocking. I do not recommend that small children see it and I caution everyone that views it, it is graphic and troubling.

The picture is of a little girl given the name Esther. She was aborted in a late term abortion. Her remains were obtained by the pro-life group Operation Save America and she was given a proper funeral service led by Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.

Fr. Frank told the crowd that gathered at the funeral service why they were there:

“We are here because this baby was killed in the darkness, and we come to honor her in the bright light of day. The abortion industry wants to hide the violence done to these children, but we must be committed to expose it. Therefore we need to hold many more of these services, with tens of thousands of people looking at these children and recommitting themselves to end abortion.”

Some might wonder why we would show such a photo. It’s simple really. Abortion advocates are constantly trying to tell us that abortions don’t hurt women or children, that it’s not a child but a “blob” just a “mass of tissue.” They want us to believe that late term abortions don’t really kill a child and should be legalized.

Let me ask you a question, since you have come this far I am assuming you have looked at the photo, does that look like a “blob,” or a “mass of tissue” to you? Though the photo is not up close I can clearly depict a head, an arm, two legs, and faintly I can see hands and feet, not to mention an ear and eye socket. What part of this child is just a blob?
