Taxpayers Should Not Pay for Abortion

Taxpayers Should Not Pay for Abortion
January 19, 2009 | Refer a Friend

As Congressman David Obey (D-Wis.) embarks on his 21st term in Congress and his new term as Chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, he needs to hear from you that American taxpayers should not be supporting and paying for abortions.

For nearly three decades, Congress has enacted annual rules that ensure the American people are not forced to fund abortions or groups that practice and promote abortions here at home and around the world. This "firewall" protecting the moral convictions of U.S. taxpayers has stood us in good stead.

Now many in Congress want these rules -- 20 in all -- repealed on bills that will originate in his committee. Inevitably, they want Representative Obey to take the lead and become the nation's Abortion Czar.

Sign our petition to Chairman Obey today. FRC will deliver the petitions to his office on January 23, 2009 to express the desire of the American people not to be forced to be complicit with abortion. After you've signed, forward this petition to friends and family so that they can add their names. Let's keep Congress -- and taxpayers -- out of the abortion business.

Thank you for taking action today and God bless you.

On November 2, 1983, Republican President Ronald Reagan signed the bill in the White House Rose Garden making the Birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a national holiday.  The bill first came up for a vote in 1979, but the Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives refused to pass the legislation. The first national celebration of the holiday in honor of Dr. King took place on January 20, 1986 and is celebrated on the 3rd Monday in January.  In his remarks on signing the bill Reagan said:  "Dr. King had awakened something strong and true, a sense that true justice must be colorblind, and that among white and black Americans, as he put it, ‘Their destiny is tied up with our destiny, and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom; we cannot walk alone.'"

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday Commission with the mission of overseeing the observance of the MLK holiday was created in the bill signed by Reagan.

In May 1989, Coretta Scott King was made a member of the commission for life by Republican President George H. W. Bush.

Democrats today are trying to usurp Dr. King's legacy, when in reality it was the Democrats who Dr. King was fighting.  See the below article for details.

Democrats Smeared Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960's
By Frances Rice

Character assignation.  That's the tactic used by Democrats in the 1960's to discredit Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a Republican who was fighting the Democrats and trying to stop them from denying civil rights to blacks.

The relentless disparagement of Dr. King by Democrats led to his being physically assaulted and ultimately to his tragic death.  In March of 1968, while referring to Dr. King's leaving Memphis, Tennessee after riots broke out where a teenager was killed, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, called Dr. King a "trouble-maker" who starts trouble, but runs like a coward after trouble is ignited. A few weeks later, Dr. King returned to Memphis and was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

Prior to his death, Democrats bombed Dr. King's home several times.  The scurrilous efforts by the Democrats to harm Dr. King included spreading rumors that he was a Communist and accusing him of being a womanizer and a plagiarist. 

An egregious act against Dr. King occurred on October 10, 1963.  With the approval of Democrat President John F. Kennedy, Democrat Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy – President Kennedy's brother – authorized the wiretapping of Dr. King's telephone by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  Wiretaps were placed by the FBI on the telephones in Dr. King's home and office.  The FBI also bugged Dr. King's hotel rooms when he traveled around the country.

The trigger for this unsavory wiretapping was apparently Dr. Kings' criticism of the Kennedy Administration, according to the author David Garrow in his book, "Bearing the Cross".  The justification given by the Kennedy Administration publicly was that two of Dr. King's associates, including David Levinson, had ended their association with the Communist Party in order to work undercover and influence Dr. King.  However, after years of continuous and extensive wiretapping, the FBI found no direct links of Dr. King to the Communist Party.

The unrelenting efforts by Democrats to tarnish Dr. King's reputation continued for years after his death.  To his credit, Republican President Ronald Reagan ignored the Democrats' smear campaign and made Dr. King's Birthday a holiday. 

Today, while professing to revere Dr. King, Democrats are still trying to tarnish his image by making remarks that diminish his civil rights achievements and continuing to claim that Dr. King embraced Communism – a system that is secularist and socialist.

In reality, Dr. King was a Christian who held deeply religious beliefs and was guided by his faith and his Republican Party principles in his struggle to gain equality for blacks.  He did not embrace the type of socialist, secularist agenda that is promoted by the Democrat Party today, which includes fostering dependency on welfare that breaks up families, supporting same-sex marriage and banning God from the public square.

An understanding of who the real Dr. King was can be gained from a glimpse of Dr. King as a young man who participated in an oratorical contest when he was 14 years old.  The title of his speech was "The Negro and the Constitution" which had the following sentences:  "We cannot have an enlightened democracy with one great group living in ignorance…We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flout the central teachings of Jesus:  brotherly love and the Golden Rule…."

If Dr. King were still alive, he would be slandered by Democrats in the same way that they smeared him in the 1960's and demean all black Republicans today.

Supreme Court Upholds Right to Display Graphic Abortion Signs Thanks to CBR

Supreme Court Upholds Right to Display Graphic Abortion Signs Thanks to CBR

This huge victory will help keep Truth Trucks, signs displays, from being silenced

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld a ruling by the 9th District Court of Appeals that said the graphic images of aborted babies displayed on vehicles and elsewhere are protected speech under the First Amendment.

The suit was filed by the Center for Bioethical Reform after two drivers of one of their large panel trucks were pulled over and detained for over an hour near a middle school in Southern California on the complaints by school officials that the truck was "disruptive." Police also searched the vehicle.

The court ruled that the police action in detaining the abortion display on the vehicle violated the drivers' rights to free speech and unreasonable search and seizure. The judges also said that "the government cannot silence messages simply because they cause discomfort, fear, or even anger."

The ruling will benefit all pro-life organizations that conduct First Amendment activities, including Operation Rescue, which runs a fleet of ten Truth Trucks, similar to the one that was subject of the suit.

"We appreciate the work of the Center for Bioethical Reform and congratulate them and their attorneys with the Thomas More Law Center on this tremendous victory," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

"We know first-hand, with our Truth Truck ministry and other graphic outreaches, what it is like to have our message silenced and our rights denied. We owe CBR a debt of gratitude for persevering through this long and expensive legal battle. Because of them, we all enjoy a bit more freedom today."

About Operation Rescue®
Operation Rescue is one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation. Operation Rescue recently made headlines when it bought and closed an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas and has become the voice of the pro-life activist movement in America. Its activities are on the cutting edge of the abortion issue, taking direct action to restore legal personhood to the pre-born and stop abortion in obedience to biblical mandates.

The Truth Comes Out--Obama Backed Homosexual Marriage

The Truth Comes Out--Obama Backed Homosexual Marriage

When Barack Obama was running for president, he said he opposed same-sex "marriage," favoring civil unions instead. But in 1996, when he first ran for the Illinois state senate, a Chicago "gay" newspaper reported that Obama supported same-sex "marriage." This week a successor paper, the Windy City Times, published specific documentation regarding Obama's earlier stance.

A candidate questionnaire by IMPACT, a homosexual political action group, proposed a resolution that "the state should not interfere with same-gender couples who choose to marry and share fully and equally in the rights responsibilities and commitment of civil marriage." Obama wrote, apparently in his own hand, "I would support such a resolution." A month later, Obama sent to Outlines a typed letter, over his own signature, stating, "I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages." Obama's professed opposition to redefining marriage was never very credible, given his much stronger opposition to every effort to defend marriage.

If American voters had understood Obama's real views, his candidacy for president might have gone the way of other open supporters of same-sex "marriage"--like Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich. Does concealing one's real beliefs to gain political advantage represent "change we can believe in?"
