Colorado House Kills Three Pro-Life Bills

Three pro-life bills were presented in a single meeting of the House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee on February 9th : abortion pill reversal information (HB17-1086), registration and inspection of abortion facilities (HB17-1085), and defining life as beginning at conception (HB17-1108).

The testimony in favor of the bills was impressive and came from multiple perspectives including doctors and nurses, lawyers, and even women who have successfully saved babies by using the abortion pill reversal treatment. Local Rep. Lois Landgraf aided the process by asking good questions of those who came to testify.

What makes this statement extraordinary is that the wrongful death in question is of a “non-viable fetus,” a pre-born baby who allegedly died as the result of malpractice by a doctor.

Texas Moves to Stop Fetal Body Parts Trafficking

Just in case you concluded that the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress made no tangible difference to the state of abortion in the United States, new regulations (as reported by LifeSiteNews) from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services will require Texas abortion facilities to bury or cremate the bodily remains of aborted babies starting December 19.

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.

The Goal

What is the primary goal for any Christian?  Is it not to get to Heaven?!

Today in the State of Colorado, we face a major struggle over Proposition 106, the Physician Assisted Suicide (PAS) ballot initiative.  The battle between those in favor and those against is focused on HOW one dies.  The argument for PAS is based on having the right, under certain conditions, to terminate one’s own life.  The main strategy for those arguing against PAS is to sow doubt about the implementation of Prop 106, thereby hoping the majority of voters will vote “NO” on it!  Both sides argue from a secular perspective.

Colorado’s Homicidal Ways

How many people have to die before we get our laws straightened out?

In Colorado a child in utero is not considered a person. Therefore, the death of that child under criminal or negligent circumstances is not considered a homicide.

No Rules Apply When Abortion Involved

Two safety provisions of a 2013 Texas law addressing abortion providers were rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court in a late June decision: the need to meet ambulatory surgical center standards and admission privileges for abortionists at a hospital within 30 miles.

As reported in the National Catholic Register, Justice Stephen Breyer, in his majority opinion, stated that “neither of these provisions offers medical benefits sufficient to justify the burdens upon access that each imposes.”
