Just Say It

Another Reason to Vote Christian Values November 3, 2008

If you’re too lazy to click, then just read it below. I copied and pasted it from Kevin’s site. Author is Kevin Bussey with an editorial from the Washington Times.

Editorial from Washington Times]

If you want to know Barack Obama’s real views on abortion, you should meet registered nurse Jill Stanek.

Mrs. Stanek worked at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois from 1993 to 2001. When she worked in the hospital’s Labor and Delivery Department she saw that babies who survived abortion attempts were left to die alone in supply rooms. They could linger for as long as eight hours, without medical care, without even the dignity of a warm blanket or a soft touch. Their tiny bodies were then dumped in the trash. Mr. Obama’s spiritual mentor served on the board of the hospital. Mrs. Stanek went on a public crusade to protect these children.

At a 2001 Illinois legislature hearing, Mr. Obama questioned Mrs. Stanek. She insisted that children needed medical care if they were born alive. Mr. Obama said: “Ms. Stanek, your initial testimony last year showed your dismay at the lack of regard for human life. I agreed with you last year and we suggested that there be a Comfort Room or something of that nature be done. The hospital acknowledged that and changes were made and you are still unimpressed. It sounds to me like you are really not interested in how these fetus [es] are treated, but rather not providing absolutely any medical care or life to them.”

Mrs. Stanek replied: “What the hospital did was try to make things look better. What it really is, is that the baby is still dead.”

In committee testimony, Mr. Obama said it was sufficient to give “comfort care” to a baby that is born despite all the efforts to kill it. “Comfort care” means giving the infant a warm blanket and permitting the baby to be held by someone as it dies. This is the most Mr. Obama could find in his heart to provide – a warm blanket for a child grasping for life. Mrs. Stanek told The Washington Times that Mr. Obama showed callousness when he questioned her in committee testimony: His inability to grasp that babies born alive need medical care was disturbing.

Despite all the details Mrs. Stanek provided in her testimony, Mr. Obama voted against the Induced Infant Liability Act in the Illinois legislature in 2002 – a bill that would give legal protection and medical assistance to a baby born from a botched abortion. Mr. Obama stated that he feared the bill could undermine Roe v. Wade. When a similar bill was put to Congress, other lawmakers had better sense and bigger hearts: The Born Alive Infants Protection Act passed the Senate with a vote of 98-0. It was signed into law by President Bush on Aug. 5, 2002. Infants born alive are now recognized as legal persons with full rights.

Mr. Obama even voted against banning partial-birth abortion – a radical procedure – in the Senate, in October, 2007. Since 2005, he has a 100 percent rating on pro-choice votes by NARAL, a leading, national pro-choice organization.

There is no doubt that Mr. Obama wants not only to uphold existing abortion laws, but a more radical view. At an address before Planned Parenthood on July 17, 2007, Mr. Obama said: “The first thing I will do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” He received a standing ovation. FOCA was introduced in Congress in November 1989 by Rep. Don Edwards, California Democrat. The legislation has since been a focal point for staunch pro-choicers. The bill would codify the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, into law in all the states. This would overturn state laws that have been passed to limit or delay abortions. Contrary to Mr. Obama’s pledges to reduce the number of abortions, he really wants to make them easier to get – while overriding state and federal laws.

Mr. Obama wants to uphold an abortion policy that has a disproportionate impact on blacks. The Alan Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit organization focused on sexual and reproductive health research, finds that 13 percent of the U.S. population is black, but 37 percent of all abortions are performed on black women and teens: Blacks are 4.8 times as likely as whites to have an abortion. A vote for Mr. Obama is, in effect, a vote that permits the disproportionate elimination of blacks in America.

[From me]

I’m not going to call Senator Obama a liar like the Times but what he said there is much different than what he told Pastor Rick Warren this summer.  It is truly sad that anyone would be for the elimination of life.

I decided to take a break from taking a break to post this. Election day being tomorrow and all.
Vote Christian values — unless you’re not a Christian — then vote moral values. Either way it’s not a vote for the Obama team. Either way you look at it.


Still Confused? October 30, 2008

Allow me to clear things up for you.

6 weeks gestation
I have seen all of my babies except Jeremy
around the 6th week. They all (even the one
we lost in miscarriage) had heartbeats this early.

8 weeks gestation

10-12 weeks gestation

12-16 weeks gestation

20 weeks gestation
At this stage a partial-birth abortion
would be performed.

6 months gestation

Unborn baby nearly full term
3D Ultrasound Image

A newborn baby moments after birth.

So now remind me again.
When is a baby a human?
When is it ok to murder one?
Show me which picture you think fits
the “right time” to abort the child.

Vote Republican.


Allow Me to be Even Bolder October 29, 2008

You people who intend to vote for Obama sicken me. To the pits and the depths of my stomach. I respect your right, however, I don’t understand you. How can you turn your backs on MILLIONS of unborn babies? Explain that to me. That is my ONLY question to you Obama supporters.

How can you turn your backs on MILLIONS of unborn babies?

And you call yourselves Christians?

Watch this

Don’t bother me with your soapboxes about the homeless or redistributing the wealth or healthcare or what have you. I want ONE question answered and that’s it.


Nothing else
In this world
Pisses me off more!


Do They Really Think We Care? September 13, 2008

Alright. Now I have to admit, I am not a big fan of anyone. I have my favorite tastes in music, but I wouldn’t wet myself if Carlos Santana walked up to me and asked me for change for a dollar. There are people I’d like to meet if only to ask a few questions. I’d like to sit down with Britney Spears. I would love to encourage her to keep trying everything she can to get her kids back and pat her on the back for starting to get her life back together. She’s worked hard, it seems. I’d like to eat a nice juicy hamburger cooked medium right on Pam Anderson’s lap squirting juicy dead cow in her left eye. Yeah! But that’s mean, isn’t it?

So since I’m not easily star struck I have this thing that makes me laugh. It seriously does. I wonder if these Hollywood types really think what they say about the election — good or bad — really makes a difference. Is it just me, or do others of you think most Hollywood actors and actresses are a bunch of good looking morons? How hard is it to pretend you’re someone you’re not on screen? Maybe I’m a bit naive, but seriously — if they can do it, I think most anyone can. The ones who can sing, well they are just gifted. That takes God given talent and sometimes a lot of training and some guts and some confidence. But it appears that a lot of these actors and singers get this elitist attitude that they can swing an election based on their opinions of a candidate (or a candidate’s running mate). It makes me laugh. I think, “shut up puppet, here’s another dollar — dance puppet dance.” I know I have a mean streak so you don’t need to send me angry e-mails or badger me about how oh so judgmental I am being — look in the mirror baby, then once you see your flawlessness you can throw your stones.

So tell me — what is the ONE or TWO things that decides it for you. You don’t have to reveal your candidate of choice. Just tell me what makes you lean one way or the other. Mine is simple — abortion. That’s it. Period. I don’t care about anything else. My opinion of a person’s character begins with his or her opinion on the sanctitiy of human life as well as their desire to defend the most innocent of us all, the unborn. As a result of my conviction in this matter, I will be voting for John McCain. Do I think he’s perfect? No. But who the heck is?

Spill it.


Abortion May 13, 2008

I have so much I’d like to say about this atrocity of humanity.

I have grieved over this too many times. I cried for 3 days straight and finally asked God to take away the pain. I stopped reading stories and statistics. I had to walk away from it.

Even though I’ve had to protect my sanity regarding this issue, it continues to rage on every single day. It’s too big for me. It cuts me to the core.

You know how when something horrible happens in your life you wish the world would stop and take notice yet it continues to rage on without even a flicker. That’s how it is. Behind the dark curtain the problem gets bigger.

Who can help?

Right now I know of about 10 women trying so desperately to get pregnant that they are taking their temperatures, charting their cycles, checking their cervical mucous, peeing on ovulation detection sticks, and crossing their fingers in hopes of that one little egg being fertilized in order to have a baby.

Right now there are several women grieving the losses of their babies with no answers — because they had miscarriages or stillborn babies or babies who were born too early and died from immaturity of some sort.

Right now there are several women grieving the losses of their babies with answers — because they went through with an abortion. They will be scarred for life.

I personally know 2 women who have had an abortion. One has had 2 abortions. Neither of them forgives herself. Both of them feel immense guilt even though the acts were many, many years ago. They don’t forget.

Abortion physically kills an unborn child.

Abortion emotionally kills that baby’s mother.

How do we make it stop?


I don’t have the answer. Not one answer.

I am left with grief for the loss of life (millions per year).

I am left with brokenness for the moms whose choices cannot be reversed.

And so many questions.

They are humans. They are alive. How can they be murdered?

This is what a baby looks like in utero.

I have a book that would absolutely amaze you.

It’s called “A Child is Born“.

Anyone considering abortion should see it.


Birth Control February 5, 2008

I have no fear of controversy.

I found out some amazing things I didn’t know about birth control several months ago. Rich and I were trying to decide what kind to use so I investigated. I didn’t want anything that is categorized as an abortifacient. An abortifacient is a drug or device used to cause abortion (source Unabridged). To my surprise many, many methods of birth control act as abortifacients. Many, many, many. I was so convicted that we decided NOT to use any birth control other than condoms and fertility awareness. The other option we will use after we have another baby is sterilization (I’ll get a tubal ligation).

Here is the rundown of a few methods and the truth about them. Prepare to be convicted if you are a Christian (or if you are opposed to abortion) and you currently use any of these methods. We were for sure. I even called a Christian friend of mine for advice on birth control use (before my research). He had no idea that these methods of birth control worked as they do, I’m sure, or he wouldn’t have said that birth control use is “ok”.

Barrier Methods (these are not abortifacients):

Condoms, Diaphragm, Cervical Caps, Spermicides, Sponge

Chemical Methods (these ARE abortifacients – in other words, if you get pregnant these chemicals/devices may cause your baby to die in one way or another):

The Pill, the Mini-Pill, IUD, IUS, Depo-Provera, the Patch (Ortho Evra), the Ring (NuvaRing), Emergency Contraception (frequently called “the morning after pill”)

Permanent Methods (not abortifacients):

Tubal ligation, Vasectomy, Hysterectomy

Other Methods (not abortifacients):

Complete abstinence, Fertility awareness, Periodic abstinence

Dig deeper. Make your decisions based on the truth, not on what your doctor tells you. I asked my doctor about these devices telling him I don’t want anything that acts as an abortifacient. He was honest with me and confirmed that the facts I found during my research are indeed facts. These are things the birth control companies don’t want you to know. Ortho Tricyclen advertises how great their pill is because it prevents things like cervical cancer, PID, and so on. But what it doesn’t tell you is that if your egg does get fertilized the pill causes your uterine lining to be a hostile environment causing your fertilized egg (aka: your baby) to become unable to implant therefore you will have a miscarriage (and you won’t even know it). How many of us will meet children we didn’t even know we had when we die? The thought makes me shudder.

And now you know.
