Stop Killing Babies Inside Their Mothers. Only A Progressive Would Find Nothing Wrong With The Killing Of A Human Baby

San Francisco protests 'Holocaust that is abortion'

A major two-mile Walk for Life is being held in San Francisco as more than 35,000 people are expected to join the rally against abortion.

Eva Muntean (Walk for Life)This year's crowd is expected to exceed the 32,000 that participated last year, and co-chair Eva Muntean believes the expected turn-out shows that Californians hope to get the administration's attention.

"Obviously it must have something to do with the current administration and the healthcare and the abortion clause in the healthcare [legislation] and people's frustration with the administration," she says.

The co-chair goes on to explain that she is aware polls show most Americans are against abortion, meaning people are "waking up to the Holocaust that is abortion." The walk, in effect, attracts a cross section of people.

"In the past of the biggest things we're proud of is the many youth who come to our event," Muntean notes. "High schools from over the state come to it as groups and college students. We have a wide range of ages."

The Walk for Life West Coast's motto is "Abortion Hurts Women," and the event was organized in 2005 to affirm the right to life and to change the hearts of those hurt by abortion. The national March for Life was held Friday in Washington, DC.
2010 'heartwarming' March for Life

March for LifeAccording to the estimates, the annual March for Life attracted over 250,000 people yesterday, drawing wide participation in the rally against legalized abortion.

This year's march began with prayer offered by Anglican Priest Martin Mims.

"Forgive us for the many ways in which we have failed to respect the sanctity of every human life," he began. "Give us courage to be a voice for the voiceless. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer. We gather today to pray for our leaders. We pray especially for those who even now are making decisions about providing healthcare for all our people. Protect them from choices made out of political expediency with no mind for your truth," Mims requested. "Remind them of your promises. Turn their hearts to the children. Lord in your mercy hear our prayer. And now to the God who showed his love for the whole world, to the gift of his only son, Jesus the Christ, and who calls us to do the same, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority before all time and now and forever, Amen." 

The event's focus was the issue of life, and the vast crowd marched to its conclusion at the Supreme Court, which is where the 1973 decision was made to legalize abortion. Since that decision in Roe v. Wade, more than 50-million babies have been aborted.

Nellie Gray, 84, president of March for Life, later spoke to the crowd, explaining one of the purposes behind being in the streets of the nation's capitol on a cold, wintery day. "We've got to get the president to hear us," she declared. "We've got to get the justices to hear us, and we've got to get Congress to hear us."

The event president made reference to a letter March for Life has written a letter to President Obama, pointing to a statement he made while touring the Buchenwald concentration camp last June where many thousands of Jews were killed during World War II. He said, "When you look at the horror that was here that was done by a government to its own people, then you know that was wrong."

"Mr. President, it seems as if you have forgotten it," she stated in reference to that statement. "There is the killing of the innocent children here in America. You have forgotten it already since June, and the essence of this killing is hard numbers."

Dr. Peggy Hartshorn (Heartbeat International)Another participant in this year's march was Peggy Hartshorn of Heartbeat International, an association of crisis pregnancy centers, and she remarked on the crowd. "It's hard to even move, there are so many people trying to march," she said. "It's very exciting to know that so many people have sacrificed and have come here to stand up for life."

She added that one of the heartwarming aspects was the number of young people who participated since "probably the average age at the march would have to [have been] in the low 20s...."

Hartshorn further noted the "eight moms with their babies from pregnancy centers all over the country -- from Texas and Louisiana and Illinois and Indiana and Ohio" who were lobbying members of Congress earlier in the week on the aid that crisis pregnancy centers provide to save the unborn from abortion at no cost to taxpayers.

Shaun Kenney (ALL)Shaun Kenney, executive director of the American Life League, was asked to describe the mood at the event. "Well, it's cold. It's absolutely packed and ecstatic over here," he explained. "This is probably one of the best attended marches I've seen in a long time. Obviously the condition at Capitol Hill and elsewhere, it's never been a friendly environment here in Washington for pro-lifers, but the mood here is absolutely electric."

Kenney comments that the atmosphere last year was rather somber, but this year, there was a change in the air.

"We have seen just how quickly change really does happen in America, and I think that this generation, the folks here understand that, and they can taste it," he said. "They know that if we do what we need to do, we do what we are supposed to do, we change this culture towards life and we can end abortion within our lifetime."

The executive director stresses that even though the curtain has closed on this year's March for Life, the battle for that culture will continue as participants go to their local communities and continue the fight against abortion.

Thank You

I would like to thank all the people that voted for Obama and the Democrats in office. Because if you hadn't voted in the most Progressive President and Congress in our history the conservative majority would not have become such a large and great force in America today. I know you didn't mean to make the moral majority/conservatives wake up and oppose the progressive agenda. Like a frog in hot water you turned up the heat too fast and we jumped out. We are not a liberal complacent group any more. We are not going to let you progressives dictate what is politicaly correct any more. We are not going to let you tell us that killing babies while in their mother protective womb misn't brutal murder. We are not going to let you tell us that is is Christianity and Jewdaism that are the problems in the world. While in the same breath tell us that it is not right to profile Muslims to stop more terrorist attacks when there are whole nations under Islamic rule that are calling for our distruction. We are not going to believe the lies like jobs created or saved,the Stimulus bill is working and it is Capitolisms fault. We will not let you devalue our Constitution nor the rights that are given to us by God. We will not let you take money from hard working Americans and let you give it to your greedy union interests. We will not let you take God out of our country when 92% of Americans believe in Him. We are not going to give you more money because it will help you get elected. And if you can't give us a viable common sense health care reform bill we will find people that will. If you have a filibuster proof super majority and you can't pass a bill or get what you want done then it is not in the best interest of this great nation. And stop putting down our great nation. We are a good people and for the most part we do great things for the world through our hard work and generosity. You progressives think that this country is so bad and the capitolism that made it are so bad then live where there isn't any. I'll pay for the one way ticket to Cuba myself. I'll even help fill out your citizenship paperwork for you. When was the last time the Republicans had a supermajority like the Democrats had? The Democrats still have a majority in both houses so why can't you make some bills that work the way you said they would or that will get passed. And don't blame the Republicans for your parties impotence in getting real work done. And don't tell us to have faith in the Democrats when they can't even get the Stimulus bill right. What a waste of money that was. And to cover the Democrats butts they want to steal the TARP funds that are mandated by law to pay off our debt and hand it out to who they choose. It's the future Americans money not yours to play with and spend at will. We will remember everything the Democrats have done just like we remembered what the Republicans did to us. The Republicans are making their way back and the Democrats are dead set on letting the Progressives destroy their party. The American people are waking up to the fact that if it wasn't for the Republicans and some Blue Dog Democrats this country would have a health care bill that would fix nothing and cost us trillions. So once again I'd like to thank you Progressives for waking me and millions of Americans up to your agenda. Keep up the good work on destroying the Democrat party. Thank you for galvinizing the right. I expect the left to not go quitly but violently. Lets just pray they don't kill anyone or riot again.

Here We Go Bruce Does This Make You Happy?

The Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v FEC gives Republicans an unexpected and possibly transformative gift in the lead up to the 2010 mid-terms…. that is if Republicans are smart enough to recognize it as such and take advantage.
The decision almost certainly favors Republican interests, since corporations are certainly not going to line up in favor of Democrats. In recent years, Democrats have out-raised Republicans by significant margins and as of this morning, Democrats seemed poised to head into the mid-terms with the financial edge. No more. Businesses are already lining up to oppose the Obama administration and the Democratic members of Congress loyal to the President. The Chamber of Commerce, which filed an amicus brief in favor of the non-profit that challenged the FEC (as did the NRA), spent $36 million on advertisements and get-out-the-vote activities in 2008 and has already announced its intentions to organize a campaign infinitely larger and more aggressive than its previous effort. The Court properly applied the first Amendment today, and as a result, Republicans have an excellent opportunity to narrow the fundraising gap. Needless to say, Democrats are having a bad month.
Regardless of what you think of the Supreme Court’s decision, the laws governing the political landscape are radically different today than they were yesterday. Citizens United opened the floodgates that previously prevented corporations and unions from spending their general funds on campaign advertisements that explicitly advocate in favor of or against the election of a candidate. The decision did uphold disclosure requirements, but nonetheless, a great deal of potential advocacy money just became in play for candidates, and members of both political parties are already moving to respond to the decision.
The President, for one, ain’t exactly thrilled. He led the Democratic charge against the decision, stating that today the SCOTUS “has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics,” and proclaiming his intention to “develop a forceful response.” He continued that “it is a major victory for big oil, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day in Washington to drown out the voices of everyday Americans…. This ruling gives the special interests and their lobbyists even more power in Washington—while undermining the influence of average Americans who make small contributions to support their preferred candidates.”
Senator Chuck Schumer is apparently already moving to attempt to pass some sort of legislation that might at least partially blunt the effects of the Court’s ruling prior to the 2010 election cycle. While Democratic objections may to some degree be philosophical, their reaction to the ruling is undoubtedly in part related to the timing of the decision. A humiliating and truly disgraceful loss in Massachusetts not only derailed the Democrats’ health care bill but it has also raised fears among Democrats that the 2010 mid-terms could be truly catastrophic. Larry Sabato notes that “it is likely that Republicans will gain at least 3-5 senate seats in November. Even more startling, in the aftermath of the Massachusetts special election, Republicans would do even better IF the general election were being held today. The Crystal Ball projects that the Democratic majority in the Senate would be reduced to just 52 seats if November’s contest were somehow moved to January.” This decision has only served to further terrify Democrats.
Does the SEIU not count as a special interest? What about all the other special interest that wrote the Stimulus Bill and the Health Care Bill? Why does the President think he is above the law of the land?
