Colorado Now a Euthanasia State

The passage of Proposition 106, which legalizes suicide by doctor, has made Colorado a euthanasia state joining California, Oregon, Washington, and Vermont.

Sold to the voters as a “compassionate” way to alleviate suffering, Proposition 106 employs twisted legal language and perspectives in order to accomplish its homicidal and grisly task: eliminating the sick, poor, elderly, and most vulnerable citizens of Colorado.

There is Nothing Beneficial in Murder

There are just a few more days left in what has been a very long election season.

If you have not voted, I urge you to do so by the November 8 deadline. Drop your ballot into one of the secure boxes around town to make sure it arrives in time to be counted (the box locations are noted in the paperwork that comes with your ballot). See our website for information that can help you select pro-life candidates and to reject anti-life ballot initiatives.

Reflections from the Sidewalk, Part 2

As I walked the sidewalk along Centennial Blvd in front of Planned Parenthood – Colorado Springs Westside Health Center yesterday I reflected on my experiences over the years during the 40 Days for Life prayer vigils. There have been rainy days, bitter cold days, windy days, and sunny, warm days (like yesterday). There has been one constant in my 40 Days for Life experiences: the people. While the names and faces have changed, the people with whom I’ve shared the sidewalk have, without exception, been passionate about saving women and babies from the tragedy of abortion. They have not been angry or vindictive against either the women entering the clinics or those working inside them. Rather, they have prayed intensely for EVERYONE touched by this horrible reality. They smile at me, and we nod at one another acknowledging our small part in fighting the battle against the culture of death. Some hold signs, some pray quietly, some walk, some stand, but every single one I’ve encountered has inspired me to continue coming to the sidewalk to pray. The campaign goes through November 6th, for more information go to www.40daysforlife.com.

Don’t Pretend We Don’t Know

The secretary for Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister for the Nazis, was recently interviewed. Now 105 years old, Brunhilde Pomsel notes, “No one believes me now, but I knew nothing.”

However, she also says, among other things, that “…the idealism of youth might easily have led to you having your neck broke,” a statement which indicates, according to blogger Jonathon Van Maren, that she really did have some idea of what was happening.

Prayer for Sanctity of Life and Defeat of Proposition 106

Lord God, we thank you for the gift of our lives, and for the lives of all our brothers and sisters. We know there is nothing that destroys more life than a culture that does not respect life from conception to the natural end of life. We now rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. We are ready to do our part in ending this culture of death by committing ourselves to NEVER be silent, NEVER be passive, NEVER be forgetful of innocent human life, at any stage of life. We commit ourselves to be active in the pro-life movement, and never stop defending life until all our brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with Liberty and Justice not for some, but for all.

It is with this in mind that we ask the Holy Spirit to guide us in our work and hear our prayers to give those who are misguided or misled a strong desire for “Objective Truth” regarding the preservation of human life, and to defeat Proposition 106, Physician Assisted Suicide. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN.
