1787- PORK BBQ- SATURDAY- DOWN AT THE MOSQUE- BE THERE!
As we wrap up the week- we end with another debate over abortion.
Yesterday the news was hot over some private foundation withdrawing their funding of Planned Parenthood.
The Foundation said they changed some rules last year that said they would no longer fund any agency that was under investigation- Planned Parenthood is being investigated- so they dropped the support.
The Left say it is a conservative scheme to attack abortion providers. The agency says there are a few reasons they stopped.
I tried to listen to the actual spokesperson for the group. She said they basically are going to stop funding groups that just pass you through- groups that simply refer you to another group- and don’t really provide treatment for breast cancer.
She explained that Planned Parenthood only teaches women to do self exams- with the hand- and if they detect something- then they send you to another organization- that does mammograms and actually treats women for breast cancer.
She explained that Planned Parenthood doesn’t even have mammogram machines!
Now- in all the debate over how this private foundation withdrawing their money will cause the untold deaths of women- not one pundit explained this.
It would be like me opening a ‘clinic’ that said ‘BROKEN LEG CLININC’. And I was getting funds from a foundation whose sole purpose is to fix broken legs.
But when you come to my ‘clinic’ I look at your leg and say ‘gee- that looks bad- maybe you better go get that checked by a real doctor’.
So that’s what Planned Parenthood does- they send you off- no mammogram- no treatment- but heck- if you want an abortion [a much more dangerous procedure] they’ll do it on the spot.
Then you had the administration demand that all catholic institutions provide free contraceptives to women.
Yes- even though they gave assurances all thru last year- they swore that they would never do this- yet they did.
Bishop Dolan [N.Y.] just met with Obama and he was personally assured they would not do this- but they did.
They did it on the very same day there was a pro life rally being held in the Capitol.
The top lady who runs the health care services for the Catholic church- a woman who supported the Obama care law- she was at the march- and when Obama did this on the same day- he undercut many liberal Catholics who were told the new health law would never require this- he lied.
Why is this a big deal?
The Catholic charities in the U.S. provide tons of fee aid to all types of people- and the Catholic hospitals rate at the top of the list for hospitals in the country [and around the world].
When you put the church in a position like this- where they believe that providing contraceptives to women- for free- is a violation of conscience- then you are putting the church in a position where they just might shut down these services- at a time where more people need them now than ever.
Let’s see- Jesus often used parables- he would say ‘what can we compare this to’.
Say if we passed a law that said ‘from now on- all Mosques in the country are required to serve free Pork BBQ to all the little kids in the neighborhood every Saturday’.
And the Imam must advertise the free lunch by placing an ad every Friday in the paper.
The ad will show a picture of the prophet- standing next to this huge pit- turning the handle that rotates this succulent pig roasting on the pit.
And he is waving to all the kids- saying ‘come on down for a good ole time’.
Yeah- it would be something along these lines- to make a Catholic institution provide free contraceptives to women.
But why be surprised- a few years ago in Illinois- they tried to pass a Live Birth law.
It came to the attention of the state that there were many instances where a woman goes in for an abortion [even at Planned Parenthood] and the baby is late term.
In some cases the baby is born- alive.
When this happens- they usually leave the baby alone- crying in the bed pan- until it stops.
I read one case where the nurse could hear the baby all the way from the front- the doctor told one of the nurses to go ‘stick that thing in the closet before everybody hears’.
So sad- so very sad.
When the state legislature met to ban this practice- there was only one senator who voiced opposition to the law.
Senator Barak Obama.
Yes- when you look at a person’s record- what he says he believes- then that does carry consequences.
Sometimes those decisions will even cause people to violate their own consciences in a very severe way.
Yeah- I guess I’ll see you guys in the morning- down at the Mosque- don’t forget to bring the sauce.
Note- Do me a favor, those who read/like the posts- re-post them on other sites as well as the site you read them on. Thanks- John
