Obama is making us pay to kill little humans

Monday, March 9, 2009, 10:00 am |

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
Psalm 139:13-16 NIV

President Barack Obama is changing America all right. He is changing us from a culture of life into a culture of death.

Obama kicked off this week by issuing an executive order allowing billions in taxpayer dollars to be used for research on frozen embryos — the youngest human beings, already conceived in the sight of God.

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser is right when she says Obama is funding “immoral science”: 

“This decision comes on the heels of several executive decisions to fund the destruction of human life at taxpayers’ expense,” she said Monday. “Already President Obama has directed American tax dollars toward international abortion providers by overturning the pro-life Mexico City Policy. His decision to fund the United Nations Population Fund will subsidize the destruction of unborn children around the world. Add these decisions to his expected rollback of conscience protections for pro-life medical professionals and we find an alarming trend: respect for human life, and the consciences of American taxpayers even, are both dismissed in favor of an abortion industry bailout and the funding of immoral science that has yet to yield a single success.”

We all must grasp the horrible thing that is happening. Because of unethical in-vitro fertilization practices, more than a half million “unused” embryos are frozen in the U.S. Some of them are being adopted as “Snowflake babies.”

It is wrong and Frankensteinian to tear apart in a test tube tiny persons knit together by God’s reproductive process.

Especially since there are NO beneficial therapies in humans that have ever been successfully carried out using embryonic stem cells. In California, where $3 billion in taxpayer dollars were approved in 2004 for embryonic stem cell research, no one has been healed or helped in their disease or disability. 

On the contrary, using embryonic stem cells has been shown to produce tumors.

As a pro-life American, I support the use of adult stem cells and cord blood stem cells — which don’t harm or kill anyone in the process — and which have resulted in 72 recent cures and treatments.

For example, research at UCLA using adult stem cells has produced rehabilitative cells without the destruction of human beings. But the pro-abortion politicians and media just can’t bring themselves to celebrate.

Just last week, it was announced that British and Canadian scientists have discovered a way to produce an almost endless supply of stem cells that could safely be used in patients and research, without any need to destroy human embryos. The cells are made from a person’s own skin, carrying the person’s own DNA, thus preventing future rejection by the immune system. Much, much, much better than the immoral, unhelpful and hugely expensive embryonic research.

So why, with all the medical advancements of adult and cord blood stems cells and NO MEDICAL ADVANCES using embryonic stem cells, is Obama spending billions of our taxpayer dollars to destroy human life yet produce no medical benefit for anyone? And why is he ignoring the success of adult and cord blood stem cell research? 

It’s simple. Pro-abortion researchers need jobs. Pro-abortion forces elected Obama and they are demanding taxpayer money. So Obama is delivering. It’s the abortion industry bailout. Billions and billions in taxpayer-funded embryonic research that is both useless and destructive is just what the doctor…I mean the president…ordered.

TAKE ACTION: Contact President Obama. He intends to push more pro-abortion policies upon Americans and needs to hear your loud protest now.

1. Call and email President Obama and Congress with SaveCalifornia.com’s Legislative Center
2. Forward this information to others to inform and activate them
3. Tell your local media the truth about the value of unborn human life and the wrongness of embryonic stem-cell “research” Call radio talk-shows and comment at online TV news and newspaper sites.

Fresno pro-life, pro-family alert

Sunday, March 8, 2009, 10:00 am |

This coming Wednesday, March 11, nurses at a Catholic hospital in Fresno will vote on whether to join the California nurses union. SaveCalifornia.com is urging pro-family Californians in Fresno to contact the nearly 1,000 nurses at the St. Agnes Medical Center to urge them to vote NO on the CNA (California Nurses Association). Read this eye-opening report in California Catholic Daily

The CNA is aggressively pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality. The CNA collects around $60 million per year to fund pro-abortion candidates (all Democrats). In the last election, the CNA spent $40,000 against protecting marriage for a man and a woman, and another $40,000 against requiring parental notification for abortion. And the CNA aggressively lobbied in favor of AB 2747, the nurse-assisted suicide law that SaveCalifornia.com opposed.

If the Fresno nurses ignorantly vote to go union, the CNA will extort more than $1,200 in “dues” per year from each nurse. That’s over $1 million per year for the CNA’s agenda if this Fresno hospital falls. Then, the CNA will threaten to fire any nurse that won’t pay dues to support the CNA’s pro-abortion, pro-homosexual-bisexual-transsexual political values.

ACTION: If you live in the Fresno area, please tell your nurse friends to urge nurses they know at the St. Agnes Medical Center to “Vote NO on the CNA.” The vote could be very close. Someone ought to make fliers to paper the employee area of the hospital parking lot. Someone bold and creative ought to organize a sidewalk protest Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday.

Do something about higher taxes

Sunday, March 8, 2009, 9:45 am |

Most people don’t understand why the economy went sour. But they know that job losses are scary. And they know that higher taxes are wrong, because they’ve been taught that for decades.

I predict Californians will get appropriately angrier and angrier at higher taxes starting in April when they see a higher sales tax with every purchase, a higher car tax, income tax, and a new $200 “child tax.”

Ronald Reagan was right when he said “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” He was right again when he said “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

You cannot afford to be ignorant of America’s economic problems. We all must rally around the free-market, capitalistic solutions that promote individual responsibility, individual reward and financial stability for families.

Bottom line, to preserve our freedom in America and avoid government enslavement, we must fight against increased government control and the soaking of taxpayers.

Here’s the latest. Please do your part to protest on April 15.

Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
— Ronald Reagan

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
— John Adams
