Spotlighting important information gleaned from other pro-life blogs…

  • Back in June, Jivin J reported that the CA Institute for Regenerative Medicines was increasing its embryonic stem cell research budget by 25%. But in an abrupt U-turn, Wesley J. Smith reports that CIRM has now (inevitably) turned its focus to adult stem cell research. According to the article he notes from The New York Times

  • Planned Parenthood thinks abortion coverage is in the healthcare homestretch

    Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards sent the following email this afternoon, which appears to breathe a sigh of relief – the worst is over, the other side has just one more hurdle to jump to ensure public funded abortion coverage is included in nationalized healthcare.
    Furthermore, the email confirms 8 different ways (highlighted and circled) what they’ve steadfastly denied: Abortion coverage is part of the plan. Click to enlarge…

    Remain calm about Stupak

    MI pro-life Democrat Congressman (and co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus) Bart Stupak has been a real hero on trying to nix public funding of abortion in healthcare. I can’t imagine how we’d stand a chance of stopping it without him.

    Terry’s press release (with contact person Catherine Veritas, clever), stated they were warning Pelosi and Reid of a “wrath to come” for pushing the “child-killing in healthcare.” Here’s video:

    Terry’s presser further stated his group planned to take their street play to Pelosi’s office. Don’t know if that happened.
    What I find troubling in all this is while the other side scoffs at Terry, and we pro-lifers back away in embarrassment, the day may actually come when Pelosi and Reid find themselves in hell and remember this. Then it won’t be so funny.
    Jivin J reported earlier this week on Terry’s Pelosi/Reid Halloween “Burn in hell” video contest.

    Pelosi’s healthcare plan would directly fund abortion

    Repeating yesterday’s Red Alert: Call your congressperson and tell him/her to vote NO on Pelosi’s healthcare bill.
    This analysis of Pelosi’s healthcare bill comes from National Right to Life:

    Regarding the health care bill unveiled today by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a spokesman for the nation’s largest pro-life organization said, “A vote for this bill is a vote to establish a federal government program that will directly fund abortion on demand, with federal funds.”…
