So Mitt Romney Really is Pro-Life Now

ChelseaPolitics, Pro LifeLeave a Comment

Gov. Mitt Romney has been criticized for his sudden change of position regarding abortion. Many have claimed that the switch was purely political. I admit that I was a little skeptical myself. In an interview with National Review Online, however, the governor explains that this change came when he realized that how Roe v. Wade has cheapened the sanctity of … Read More

Today marks the 7th year of my spinal cord injury and thus my 7th year in a wheelchair. Never, before last year, have I actually recognized this occasion or made a big deal about it. But I now see it as an opportunity to share what I have come to realize through my disability. In my original reflections I noed … Read More

This coming January 1 is World Day of Peace 2007. Vatican officials have released the text of Pope Benedict’s speech in which he maintains that true peace cannot be achieved as long as the killing of unborn children is accepted: “’Respect for people promotes peace,’ the pope said in the statement as he stressed ‘the duty to respect the dignity … Read More

For those of you not familiar with Sen. Brownback, here are a couple of videos I found on You Tube. The first is of him at a pro-life banquet. The second is a piece of his debate on the ESC research bill a few months ago.

Sen. Sam Brownback, seen here with his adopted daughter, is really getting serious about his presidential bid and we should be to! He is a real family man and a solid pro-life candidate. His only drawback right now is that he doesn’t have the money or the name recognition as the other GOP frontrunners. So he needs our help starting … Read More

Unborn Child Pain Act Falls Short

Although a marjority of Representatives voted in favor of the bill the vote fell short of the two-thirds needed to pass under parlimentary procedure. While I’m glad that there was a majority in favor, I am pretty disappointed that this did not pass. We’re dismembering our children in the womb and we won’t inform the mother that this horrific procedure … Read More

Legislative alert! The House of Representatives is supposed to vote on the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act today. I’ve got C-Span on right now and they have just begun debate on the bill. This is not about the legality of abortion, but about informed consent on the part of the woman seeking an abortion. Opponents of the bill stress the … Read More

I have had about enough of this Giuliani, McCain business!! Sen. Sam Brownback has begun the process to become a Republican presidential candidate in 2008. He is pro-life and pro-family and makes that a priority in his decision making: “There is a real need in our country to rebuild the family and renew our culture and there is a need … Read More

Embryonic Stem Cell Hype

In California they’re getting a “reality check” after the passage of Prop. 71, which owes its victory to proponents who, much like they did in MO, carted out sick babies and people in wheelchairs with doctors claiming that ESC research is their only hope for cures. The subheadline to a recent LA Times article says it all: “The research, stalled … Read More
