Congress is Poised to Pass Abortion …

by Steve Ray on November 6, 2009


UPDATE: Due to the huge rebellion of pro-life Americans and many pro-life congressmen, the abortion provision was overridden in the bill — but I suspect the Democrats will eventually get it if we let down our guard.


… as part of the Health Care bill tomorrow. What utter disregard for the majority of people who absolutely oppose abortion as being a “medical remedy” as though pregnancy is some kind of disease. I fear for our country.

I have two idiots for senators in my state of Michigan (Stabenow and Levin) ; and an calloused old fool for a congressman (Dingell, who IS as his name sounds). It is a waste of time for me to write and cajole them since they are blind and deaf #$%&@ socialists. But many of you have senators and members of Congress who still have a conscience and a shred of sanity. Do what you can!

Pro-lifers battle Pelosi as health-care reform faces critical test

With the US House of Representatives scheduled to vote on November 7 on a proposed health-care reform bill, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is struggling to rally support for the legislation, with informed observers on Capitol Hill predicting an extremely tight vote. If the bill is approved by the House, it will still face a lengthy debate in the Senate, with a final vote there unlikely to take place before the end of the calendar year.

Democrats ignore pro-life concerns on health care, bishop charges
http://www.catholicculture.org/news/headlines/index.cfm?storyid=4541
Writing for First Things, Bishop James Conley, a Denver auxiliary, charges that Democratic Party leaders have made no effort to accommodate the concerns of pro-lifers in the debate on health-care reform. “’Common ground’” thinking in Washington apparently has more reality as public relations than as public policy,” he charges.
“With the exception of a few leaders, like Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak, Congress has ignored or rejected every attempt at resolving the serious concerns voiced by the bishops—or alternately, has pushed solutions like the Capps Amendment that do not solve the problems, and even create new ones. The White House has done nothing to intervene.”

Until the USCCB takes a public stand against false Catholic politicians such as Pelosi, Biden, Leahy, Kerry and the rest. we are going to have more and more problems. They must be publicly prohibited from taking Holy Communion until such time as they publicly repent from supporting abortion, sodomy and all manner of filth and dirt. It’s that simple.

Thee Catholic Church has a great opportunity here I believe because the vast majority of Americans oppose Abortion on demand and do not support Federal Funding for abortion. The liberals have been trying to maintain their power through activist Court Judges. But if the Catholic Church will speak out against this health care plan as it is being pushed by this administration, we will garner support. I agree, we do need to reel in those leftist politicians who would rather spit on the face of Christ as oppose to go against their Democratic Party line.

I do think this is big. We are seeing the pro-life wing of the Democratic party winning some battles. That was unthinkable a few years ago. When the abortion issue gets out of the partisan game and into a rational debate then the prolife side will get another boost. Right now so many simply support abortion because it is the mindless liberal position to take. When those on the left see they have a choice without being considered a bad Democrat then many will switch.

When the bishops speak together in unity with the pope they have great power. That has always been our faith. We are seeing that now on abortion. They are much more solidly behind the prolife cause than ever before. They used to send very mixed signals. There has been a gradual improvement over the last 10 years that is now quite noticable. Sure we can improve further but things are definitely headed in the right direction.
