Tuesday, April 24, the leaders of 40 Days for Life put on a teleconference that I was privileged to be part of, along with 2,699 other pro-lifers from all over. It focused on 2012 as the Defining Moment, highlighting the recent victories witnessed during the last 40 Days for Life spring campaign. The recording is available here. A PDF file Action Guide to the event is available here.
Shortly after his election, Obama chose former National Abortion Rights Activation League legal director Dawn Johnsen to serve on his Department of Justice Review Team, and Ellen Moran, former director of Emily’s List, as White House communications director. Melody Barnes, former Emily’s List board member, was tapped for director of his Domestic Policy Council.
Of course, the mandate itself was a huge payback for Planned Parenthood and other anti-life groups that supported Obama’s election. Through the mandate, the administration guaranteed them income via the forced subsidization of abortion, abortifacients, birth control pills, and sterilization by taxpayers, employers and insurance companies throughout the country. This guaranteed a continual flow of funds for Planned Parenthood—income which is over and above the nearly $500 million in tax-payer funds they already receive each year.
Someone must have told the president that there were still under-employed abortion peddlers loitering at the White House gates, because Obama just announced that he was hiring Planned Parenthood’s former media director Tait Sye to serve as a deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at Health and Human Services.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held a hearing yesterday in the case seeking to challenge the executive order President Barack Obama handed down forcing taxpayers to finance embryonic stem cell research.
Obama forced funding of the research with public funds even though embryonic stem cells have yet to work successfully in animals because they cause tumors and face immune system rejection issues.
Sherley v. Sebelius is a lawsuit challenging an Obama administration policy that authorized the National Institutes of Health to fund additional research projects that destroy human embryos even though a federal law known as the Dickey/Wicker Amendment specifically prohibits such funding.
Wikipedia’s bias toward abortion is nothing new. Conservapedia (which itself reveals bias and incomplete information) lists a handful of examples that only scratch the surface of Wiki’s glaringly evident pro-abortion advocacy. A more recent example of the absurdity of contributor-bias is Wikipedia’s Maafa 21 entry. It asserts that the film “has been praised by pro-life activists and condemned by historical scholars, pro-choice activists, and other writers…”
Apparently, pro-life activists are not historical scholars, or medical professionals, or professors, or other types of educators…just nebulous “activists”.
The article then avoids any of the actual substance of the thoroughly researched documentary and instead relies upon mostly unattributed assertions or feelings about Planned Parenthood.
If you believe the last 40 Days for Life campaign was effective in taking an active step towards the END of abortion, please join us for our 2nd Annual Benefit Dinner on Monday April 23, 2012 at 7:00PM with emcee Patrick Castle from LIFE Runners and featured speaker Carol Everett, a former abortion provider. Carol was feature in the recent film “Blood Money” and summoned to testify as an expert witness in Washington D.C. and numerous state capitals.
Due to the generosity of our donors and table sponsors we are now able to offer this dinner and program at no cost to you.

The Obama administration is quietly diverting roughly $500 million to the IRS to help implement the president’s healthcare law.
The money is only part of the IRS’s total implementation spending, and it is being provided outside the normal appropriations process. The tax agency is responsible for several key provisions of the new law, including the unpopular individual mandate.
Republican lawmakers have tried to cut off funding to implement the healthcare law, at least until after the Supreme Court decides whether to strike it down. That ruling is expected by June, and oral arguments last week indicated the justices might well overturn at least the individual mandate, if not the whole law.
This film follows Hannah as she searches for her birth mother after finding out she is adopted and that she is an abortion survivor.

This film is made in association with Provident films, the same people who brought us films like Courageous and Fireproof. The film is rated PG-13 so it is NOT appropriate for younger viewers.
The Department of Justice has given up its bid to prosecute a pro-life counselor and agreed to pay her $120,000 in a case a judge said never should have been brought.
Mary Susan Pine, who stands outside abortion clinics and advises women not to have the procedure, was accused of blocking a car from entering a Florida abortion clinic in 2009. In December, a judge threw out the case, in which the government sought $10,000 in fines and a permanent injunction barring Pine from counseling women outside the Presidential Women's Center in West Palm Beach, Fla. The government had been appealing the ruling until it was announced Monday it would no longer pursue the case.
