Loss for Students for Life of America is Heaven’s Gain
Students for Life of America lost a hero in Kortney Blythe Gordon and her unborn baby, Sophy, when they were killed in a head-on collision earlier this month. They were driving back from a pro-life training in Georgia. We mourn their loss, but know the angels in Heaven are rejoicing. I had the awesome privilege of meeting Kortney, and I just pray that we all may have that much life and enthusiasm in us as we fight for the babies. Pray for her new husband, Ben, and also for Jon Scharfenberger who is still in critical condition. Pray that Jesus touches him…
Unbelievable: Suspension Recommended for Phil Kline
http://www.jillstanek.com/2011/10/travesty-panel-recommends-suspension-of-phill-klines-law-license/. Phil Kline, a heroic pro-life attorney, who spearheaded investigations into Planned Parenthood as Kansas’ attorney general is now under attack. This is what he says:
The ethics process is being used to punish political opponents. Even so, the dominant tragedy in this saga is that through my investigation it was learned hundreds of children were sexually abused in Kansas, and Kansas has still done nothing. Nothing in the panel’s 185 page opinion can alter that truth. I upheld my duty, upheld my oath of office and the integrity of my profession. My “mistake” was my willingness to investigate politically powerful people and to let that investigation go where the evidence led. It is a decision, however, I would repeat and I will continue to speak and stand for the truth and for those who cannot speak for themselves. May we all be willing to repeat such “mistakes.”
President Obama Changes His Mind
Remember how Obama promised that ObamaCare would not fund abortions? Remember how he convinced pro-life Democrat legislators to pass his plan based on this promise? Remember how many were saying that his executive order really didn’t mean anything? Well, that’s right.
Despite Obama’s earlier assurances, here’s what’s said now about a bill the House to trying to pass to ensure that no federal funds will go to abortion under ObamaCare: “H.R. 358 goes well beyond the safeguards found in current law and reinforced in the President’s Executive Order by restricting women’s private insurance choices. If the President is presented with H.R. 358, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.”
Right, so that’s what we should have known all along…Obama wants to make abortion federally funded in any way possible. Read the details here: http://www.lifenews.com/2011/10/12/obama-threatens-to-veto-bill-for-no-abortion-in-obamacare/.
