From Paul Mitchell through email comes an invitation to a free educational event in Illinois:

We have a unique opportunity this Saturday, March 5, to hear a first-hand account of the way that abortion has devastated the African-American community.  Lake County Right to Life has never addressed the specific needs of this community before in the depth that we will be doing so on Saturday.   We will present Mildred Richardson, RN, co-founder of the South Haven Pregnancy Center in Chicago.

Pro-lifers have long known about Planned Parenthood’s historical roots in the eugenics movement.  Founder Margaret Sanger believed that African-Americans were inferior and she wanted to decrease their numbers.  We see this worldview played out today when Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics are disproportionately located in minority communities.  The South Haven Pregnancy Center is surrounded by four of them.

Mildred Richardson has 40 years of experience in psychiatric and family health nursing and was formerly the supervisor of the pediatric clinic at Martin Luther King Health Center in Chicago.  In 2005, she co-founded South Haven, a faith-based organization serving the South Shore Community, because of her strong desire to make a difference in the lives of teenagers and women on the Southside of Chicago.  SHPC offers supportive services, programs and referrals to emotionally distressed teens, women and their families experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.  Mildred Richardson is committed to an active campaign to awaken the African-American community regarding the problems of teenage pregnancy, STDs and HIV/AIDS facing young people.

Ms. Richardson will be speaking from 10:00 a.m. till 12:00 p.m. on her experiences with abortion in the African-American community and the need to alert people to the problem in the African-American community and beyond.  She will also address the way teens are influenced by the media and their need for positive role models.  The forum will be held at Sign of the Dove Church, 424 – 10th Street, Waukegan.

There is no admission charge.  Please call Lake County Right to Life at (847) 223-7022 for more information, or to register.

In a powerful video with personal testimonials, key black conservative leaders, including Dr. Alveda C. King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., talk about how their faith influences the policies and politics they support. These black Americans state eloquently why they support Sen. John McCain and cannot, in good conscience, support Sen. Barack Obama. A primary reason cited by these black American leaders is Obama’s radical position on abortion, including the fact that Obama voted four times in the Illinois Senate against the bill that would provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion.

Why is the issue of abortion so important to black American leaders? Black communities are being devastated by abortion which is tantamount to black genocide. 35% of abortions in the United States are performed on African-American women, while they represent only 12% of our nation’s female population. According to the 2000 Census, 14 million (17 million as of 2007) African-American children have been killed through abortion. This means that more African-American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 30 years than the total number of African-American deaths from all other causes combined, including AIDS, heart disease, cancer, violent crimes and accidents. This is a crisis in black America that Obama does not care about.

Black Pro-Life Advocate Says Barack Obama Still Misleads on Abortion Votes – This eye-opening website features the words of a leading African-American pro-life advocate who says Obama continues to mislead the public about his votes on an abortion/infanticide bill. Even more troubling is the fact that in July 2007, Obama said: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” That bill would make unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy the national law and overturn any abortion limits in all 50 states. The bill would also require taxpayer funding of abortion, eliminate parental notification laws, and end restrictions on partial-birth abortion.

Black Pro-Life Advocate Says Barack Obama Still Misleads on Abortion Votes

View Obama’s Abortion Voting Record – Obama actively opposed the legislation in the Illinois Senate that would have provided health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. In 2001, he voted “no” in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted “present” on the floor. In 2002, he voted “no” in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted “no” on the floor. Obama was the sole senator to ever speak against it on the Senate floor. The U.S. Senate passed the federal bill unanimously, with Senators Barbara Boxer and Ted Kennedy speaking in support of it. The pro-abortion group, NARAL, expressed neutrality on the federal bill. On August 5, 2002, President George W. Bush signed it into law.

For four years Obama has said he would have supported the federal version, but that simply isn’t true. In 2003, as chairman of the Illinois Senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, Obama voted “yes” on an amendment that made the Illinois version identical to the federal one. However, he then voted “no” on the amended bill.

Senator Obama’s Voting Record

Obama Lied About His Abortion Voting Record During the Third Presidential Debate – An analysis of the third presidential debate shows that Obama lied about his legislative action on abortion.

Obama Lie One: Obama stated that the Born Alive Infant Protection Act “said you have to provide lifesaving treatment and that would have helped to undermine Roe v. Wade.”

Truth: The legislation applied to babies that were born live, living completely outside their mothers’ womb and no longer under any jurisdiction of Roe v. Wade.

Obama Lie Two: Obama stated, “And the Illinois Medical Society, the organization of doctors in Illinois, voted against it. Their Hippocratic Oath would have required them to provide care, and there was already a law in the books.”

Truth: Illinois abortion law to this day only protects babies that survive an abortion who the abortionist deems fit to live. Obama opposed closing this loophole by voting against legislation to mandate a second doctor be present at deliveries of all babies born alive, in order to independently assess their viability.

Obama Lie Three: “I am completely supportive of a ban on late-term abortions, partial-birth or otherwise, as long as there’s an exception for the mother’s health and life, and this did not contain that exception.”

Truth: Note Obama’s slick use of the phrases “late term” and “partial birth” abortions when the issue is about babies “born alive” after a botched abortion. Obama then starts talking about the “mother’s health and life” to deflect attention away from the live baby in need of health care to continue surviving. In 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator to speak out on the Senate floor against the bill that would provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. What kind of man is Obama who would do that, then lie, straight-faced, about what he had done?

Obama’s Lies

Vatican official attacks U.S. Democrats as “party of death” By Phil Stewart which exposes how the former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burk who is the head of the Vatican’s highest court, the Vatican’s Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature, said that the Democratic Party risked “transforming itself definitively into a party of death for its decisions on bioethical issues.” He then attacked two of the party’s most high profile Catholics — vice presidential candidate Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — for misrepresenting Church teaching on abortion. Pope Benedict has been encouraging Catholic bishops to speak out more openly on public policy issues to make the Church’s voice heard.

Planned Parenthood: Wanting fewer blacks ‘understandable’ by Bob Unruh uncovers the shocking truth about how Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion industry leader, says ‘yes’ when ‘donor’ wants to reduce minorities. The article includes a video showing how a student-run magazine at UCLA revealed an undercover investigation in which representatives of Planned Parenthood admitted willingness to accept a financial donation targeting the destruction of an unborn black baby.

I got an email from Americans for Limited Government today.

August 27th, 2008—Americans for Limited Government president Bill Wilson today strongly condemned Sen. Barack Obama for “attempting to censor free speech and creating a pathology of oppression that threatens to gut the First Amendment.”

Wilson’s comments came in response to efforts by the Obama campaign to ban a commercial critical of Obama from the airwaves. The commercial, which reveals the close relationship between Obama and unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, is sponsored by an independent organization known as the American Issues Project. Obama has intimidated several major TV networks into refusing to air the ad and has pushed the Department of Justice to “investigate and prosecute” the organization.

“Mr. Obama has now established an undeniable, indelible image of himself as a thin-skinned, pathological authoritarian,” Wilson said. “Time and again since he first declared himself a candidate for the presidency, he has first denied charges against him and then, when the truth came out, viciously attacked those who dared to tell the truth. He has shown utter contempt both for the facts of the matter and freedom of speech.”

Wilson cited numerous examples of Obama’s “pathological authoritarian” behavior that, according to Wilson, “call into question his fitness to hold any position where he can suppress dissent and oppress those who dare to offer it”:

o When the story first broke of Jeremiah Wright’s racist attacks from the pulpit of Obama’s church, the Senator first denied such attacks occurred. Then, after the release of videos, the Senator, in his “racial reconciliation” speech, lashed out at the past racism of white Americans, including his own grandmother.

o When asked about abortion in the Saddleback Forum, Obama denied that he had ever supported the killing of babies who had survived the abortion procedure. After the debate, when questioned about his response by CNS reporters, Obama lashed out at his accusers, labeling them “liars.” Subsequently, the Obama campaign was forced to issue a statement confirming Obama’s support for post-birth abortion.

o When unflattering elements of his past record in both the Illinois state senate and U.S. Senate were exposed by independent groups supporting Democrat primary candidates Hillary Clinton and John Edwards, Obama first vehemently denied the accusations. When the groups stood by their charges, Obama called for criminal investigations and prosecutions of the groups’ donors.

o When Obama wrote his book Dreams from My Father, the senator conspicuously — and some have charged, deceptively — left out the full name of his acknowledged mentor, “Frank.” When Jerome Corsi exposed the mentor to be communist party member Frank Marshall Davis, Obama lashed out at Corsi with a 40-page screed attacking the journalist’s integrity. The Corsi revelation proved to be true.

o When Obama went to Iraq, and Gen. David Petraeus explained to him why the surge had been successful, Obama – despite being presented with the facts on the ground – continued to deny the success of the surge. Then, when pressed on the evidence presented, the Senator lashed out at Petraeus, telling Fox News, “My job is to make the decisions about the national security issues … Their job is just to get the job done.”

“And now,” Wilson said, “we have Obama is once again exhibiting the same chilling cycle of defraud and defame. Obama knows he has maintained a close friendship with Ayers, and he knows that Ayers remains proud of his terrorist attacks upon the people of the United States. So, instead of admitting his own frightening lack of good judgment, Obama once again viciously attacks those who dare to expose the truth.”

Wilson pointed out that according to those in attendence at the cocktail reception thrown by Ayers to launch Obama’s state senate bid in 2005, Ayers played a pivotal role in pushing the Obama candidacy. According to attendee Maria Warren, “They were launching him — introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread.”

And Ayers, according to Wilson, didn’t merely sit on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago with Obama, as the Senator has contended; it was Ayers who helped Obama secure the board position.

But it isn’t only in these instances that he has avoided the truth, lied about it, and attacked the people asking questions. And in quite a few instances, he has sent some very challenged individuals out to do his bidding and silence the opposition.

Too bad it hasn’t worked.

In Cuba, they’d just shoot you. And wasn’t it the Obama democrats who show Che’s image as an image of socialist revolution and change; as someone to be looked up to? A murdering sociopath who bound and and gagged his captives before he shot them in front of their relatives?

Biden Pro-abortion Stance Will Cost Obama Election

Catholic group denounces Obama’s pick of Biden for V.P

Not to worry, though, the democrats are so clueless that Nancy Pelosi doesn’t know what Catholics oppose abortion.

PELOSI DENIES CATHOLICISM OPPOSES ABORTION

I’ll bet that denial is insulting to catholics in America…

Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded as follows:

“Here is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: ‘Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.’ It also says, ‘Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.’ Looks like Pelosi didn’t study the subject long enough. But not to worry: We are sending her a copy of Catholicism for Dummies today (the Catechism is like maybe a bit advanced).

“Whether Joe Biden is as ignorant of what his religion teaches remains to be seen. What is not in doubt is the enthusiasm which NARAL showed when he was selected to join the ticket. The radical pro-abortion group was delighted, as were the radical pro-abortion delegates to the Democratic convention: as reported in today’s New York Times, 64 percent of Americans reject abortion-on-demand, yet only 23 percent of the delegates do. It is only fitting, then, that NARAL’s president will speak today at the Convention and Planned Parenthood’s president will speak tomorrow.

“So there we have it: the man running for president on the Democratic ticket supports selective infanticide, his running mate is a pro-abortion Catholic, the delegates are wildly out of step with Americans on abortion and the Speaker of the House hasn’t a clue what her religion teaches on the subject.”

Pelosi and Biden both claim to be catholics, but as was mentioned previously regarding Biden’s involvement in getting the agents involved at Ruby Ridge and WACO excused for their crimes, it would appear that Biden doesn’t have any respect for life, family, or those people who cling to ‘religion and guns’.

Better that than worship government and expect it to save you.

We have–exactly how many government programs that are bankrupt now..? And they’re talking about making our health care system government-controlled and run? And putting the world on welfare (with Obama’s global poverty act) Are these people out of their minds?

Biden might be a pro abortion guy, but there is nobody who is as extreme on the issue as our presidential candidate the dems have standing at the podium; Barack Hussein Obama.

Interesting 6 things Olivet College could do to be more transparent about their agenda when dealing with students (and their parents) who are considering enrollment.

What he’s saying here is very disturbing.  Asking for ‘fair and balanced’ on a college campus today is like asking for pork in an Islamic country.
