PRO-LIFE EVENTS THIS WEEK: Walk for Life in San Francisco | Calendar For Life

By this time, you’ve probably heard about the Pennsylvania abortionist, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who was arrested and charged with killing a post-abortive woman and seven live infants. Gosnell had become rich by killing babies 6, 7, and 8 months old — despite Pennsylvania’s ban on late-term abortions.

Remind yourself of babies in the womb by seeing these amazing photos

As LifeNews.com reported on Jan. 19:

The infanticides are “abortions,” in that Gosnell purposefully induced a premature birth of the infants for the purpose of taking their lives. District Attorney Seth Williams said today that the charges involve a particularly gruesome method of killing the babies.

During a press conference, Williams said Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord.”

“There were bags, and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. “There were jars lining shelves with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”

Don’t look away. For, as evil and gruesome as this “Dr. Death” is, the decision to kill their babies by abortion was first made by pregnant women and teenage girls. They believed the death of a little baby was acceptable and preferable.

What if you were that baby? Wouldn’t you want your mother to change her mind? What if you were being threatened in your home by a dangerous criminal waving scissors at you? Wouldn’t you want the police to burst in and save your life?

This is the desperate sense of urgency you and all people with intact consciences must have. Realize that 53 million babies in America have been killed by abortion since the Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973. That’s 1 of 6 Americans and 1 of 3 young people born since this unconstitutional edict. All dead through the torture of abortion.

This is truly a matter of life and death, for babies are being aborted every day. They all have a beating heart, brain waves, developing organs, and can feel great pain like you can.

This is why you must get uncomfortable, cancel your other plans if possible, and challenge yourself to spend time this week to love defenseless, voiceless babies.  Love is a choice. Love is an action.

Be their Voice. Be their Defender. Be the Conscience of our land. Stand up today and Saturday. March in San Francisco or participate in a pro-life event near you:

Not by God, but by George

An analysis of the retirement of California Chief Justice Ron George
by SaveCalifornia.com President Randy Thomasson

Morally-liberal and a judicial activist at heart and in practice, Ron George, the chief justice of the California Supreme Court, has announced he won’t run for reelection in November.

George’s bowing out means the only Supreme Court justice on the November ballot is Carlos Moreno, a Gray Davis appointee who is even more to the left. Moreno officiated at homosexual weddings and was the only judge who voted to overturn Prop. 8 after it became part of the California Constitution. (SaveCalifornia.com provides this solely for educational purposes and does not support or oppose candidates.)

How will Ron George be remembered? Pro-family conservatives cannot forget that Ron George is a judicial activist who doesn’t care much about the written California Constitution.

In May 2008, George authored the infamous 4 to 3 decision inventing homosexual “marriages.” George based his ruling on the “equal protection” clause of Article 1, Section 7 of the California Constitution, which mirrors the post-Civil War 14th Amendment guaranteeing to black former slaves all the legal rights afforded white freemen.

But “equal protection” mean the laws must give equal opportunity to individuals no matter their race, not their behavior. Yet Ron George broke his pledge to defend the written California Constitution when he opined that couples (different from individuals) who are “gay or lesbian” (not in the  Constitution) have the right to marriage licenses (which were not in the Constitution until Prop. 8 passed in Nov. 2008).

You see, Ron George lets his own beliefs trump his boss, which is the California Constitution. He invented homosexual “marriages” because he personally believes some people are born homosexuals (there is zero scientific evidence for this) just like some people are born black:

But as he read the legal arguments, the 68-year-old moderate Republican was drawn by memory to a long ago trip he made with his European immigrant parents through the American South. There, the signs warning “No Negro” or “No colored” left “quite an indelible impression on me,” he recalled in a wide-ranging interview Friday. “I think,” he concluded, “there are times when doing the right thing means not playing it safe.”
(Source: Los Angeles Times, May 18, 2008)

But that’s not all. Don’t forget 1997, when Ron George authored the 4 to 3 ruling striking down California state law requiring parental consent for a  minor’s abortion. This was scandalous. After a pro-life justice retired, George led the charge to vacate the court’s earlier 4 to 3 ruling that had actually upheld the parental consent law. Gov. Pete Wilson had appointed the pro-abortion Ming Chin, and George took full opportunity to kill more babies.

In his horrible ruling, George hearkened back to his predecessor, Rose Bird, who had redefined the paperwork privacy clause in the California  Constitution to somehow mean a teenager’s right to a tax-funded abortion. George expanded this unconstitutional “case law” to say that parents have absolutely no right to know about or to stop an abortion on their pre-teen and teen daughters.

Wait, there’s more. Ron George participated in several other bad rulings that violated the strict reading of the California Constitution or rulings that had nothing to do with the Constitution: requiring rental property owners to kill off their religious values and rent their own property to unmarried, fornicating couples (1996); inventing homosexual “second parent” adoptions (2003); forcing businesses that offer marriage benefits to the public to offer the same to homosexual couples (2005); and squashing the religious freedom of doctors who don’t want to artificially inseminate homosexuals (2008).

Who will replace Ron George on the Supreme Court? Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will nominate a replacement for George, whose final day on  the bench will be Jan. 2, 2011. That nomination will go on this year’s November ballot.

Article 6, Section 16 of the California Constitution says if a justice does not seek reelection, “the governor, before September 16, shall nominate a candidate.” That candidate will then stand for election “at the next general election,” i.e., Nov. 2, 2010. So if you like Schwarzenegger’s pick, you can vote yes; if you don’t like the nominee, you can vote no, and the next governor will do the nominating.

My take? Since Republican governors Ronald Reagan, George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson all nominated or elevated Ron George at one time or another, you can’t trust anyone to put judges on courts unless both the appointer and the appointee both swear to abide solely by the WRITTEN Constitution and its original intent, not what governors or judges think it should say.

“…the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither force nor will, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.”

ACTION: Help bring an end to secret teen abortions

Thursday, January 28, 2010, 11:10 pm |

Secret abortions performed on minors (girls under 18) are a serious problem in California. It is estimated that more than 20,000 abortions are performed on minor girls each year in California without ANY requirement that a parent or guardian even be notified.

Sexual exploitation of parents’ daughters by older men is also a serious problem with the internet, social networking, and cell phones making it easier for predators to contact minor girls. If a girl becomes pregnant, a predator can coerce her to have a secret abortion, often paid for by taxpayers, to “get rid of the evidence” of statutory rape. Hear the “secret tapes” of Planned Parenthood hiding statutory rape evidence.

The latest news from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute is that the teen pregnancy rate ROSE in 2006 for the first time in 16 years.

What can you do?

Obviously, caring parents need to teach their children to remain morally pure, with no sexual activity until marriage. These videos and curriculum will help.

But as voters, California parents and grandparents need to do more. In the 36 states that have parental notification or consent laws, the result has been, on average, a 13.6% drop in teen abortions.

Why do these parental involvement laws work? Teens get the message that they shouldn’t have sex because, if girls become pregnant, they can’t get secret abortions without their parents being told. The result is protection for unborn babies who would otherwise be killed and for teen girls who would otherwise be physically violated and emotionally damaged.

California desperately needs a parental notification law. And the good news is, with your tangible help, it can happen.

Take immediate action

California is ready to pass a rock-solid constitutional amendment that ends secret teen abortions and strengthens the God-given bond between parents and their children.

Your help is needed to place the Parental Notification Amendment on California’s November 2010 ballot. Please collect signatures on petitions from family and friends, and in your neighborhood, workplace and church building. It is perfectly legal for churches to ask people to sign petitions for this moral ballot measure in the sanctuary or the foyer.

To request petitions, send an email with your name, mailing address and phone number to ParentalNotification@California.USA.com or leave a message with your contact information when you call 916-427-1671.

Remember that in November 2008, the Parental Notification Amendment on California’s ballot nearly passed, receiving 48.04% YES votes!

Last February, a poll by the Public Policy Institute of California found that 68% of California adults support requiring parental notification before an abortion can be performed on a minor daughter.

And with conservative voters motivated to turn out heavily this November, the odds are favorable to finally win this year, if only enough signatures can be gathered to qualify this important ballot initiative. Approximately 1.2 million raw-count signatures are needed by the first week in May. Please do your part today!

Rescue those being led away to death;
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?

Proverbs 24:11-12 NIV
