You remember all of the hype, the predictions of the sports pundits. I don’t think there was single pundit who was willing to bet against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl earlier this year. The New York Giants didn’t win their division, their quarterback couldn’t match his Patriots counterpart, match-ups at most of the positions favored the Patriots, blah, blah, blah. I believed them, and you probably did too.
I feel we are in that kind of atmosphere now right before the election. Odds in Obama’s favor. Deal done. Victory laps already started among Obama supporters. Yet, the game has yet to be played.
Yes, I am terrified of an Obama presidency. Yes, I think he will keep his promise to Planned Parenthood to have the Freedom of Choice Act be the first bill he signs as President. Yes, he has a ton of money compared to McCain. Yes, there are too many people who look at Obama through rose-colored glasses, not willing to allow his inconsistencies and lack of depth or experience penetrate what they want to see rather than what is.
But, fear needs to be replaced with action to get as much information out about McCain and Obama in these last days as possible. We need to reach those who still have a place in their hearts for the truth about Obama’s extreme abortion position. We need to educate those who are still undecided. The 50 million babies already aborted are counting on you to save their brothers and sisters from a similar fate.
There is a wealth of material on the Wisconsin Right to Life website at www.WisconsinRighttoLife.org — from information sheets to E-Cards. It’s not too late for you to hand literature out at church services or in your neighborhoods. Our E-card (click link above) can be forwarded to your friends and family in just a few seconds. Don’t forget about the right-to-life state candidates.
Don’t let fear paralyze you — let it spur you to action. This is not an election to sit out or even just cast your own ballot. Mobilize, act. And, remember that the Patriots lost the Super Bowl.
It is one of the most important ballot questions of the November 4 election. Will the state of Washington follow it’s neighbor, Oregon, to legalize assisted suicide through approval of I 1000? The battle has been fiercely waged with proponents of I 1000 raising four times the amount of funds.
Groups and individuals in Oregon have provided much of the funding to pass I 1000. Oregon is lonely, and wants company in allowing death by assisted suicide. But opponents in Oregon are not silent. Barbara Wagner is an Oregon woman whose oncologist prescribed chemotherapy to help prolong her life. Wagner was astonished when the Oregon Health Plan would not cover her treatment. Here’s the kicker — she was informed that the Plan would cover drugs for her assisted suicide.
Wagner is livid — and is transferring her anger to the voters of Washington State. Sadly, Wagner has died, but she lived long enough to create an ad being aired against I 1000 in Washington. In the ad, Wagner says: “They would pay to kill me but would not pay to give me the medication to try to stop the growth of my cancer. People of Washington, don’t vote this in.”
What does any of this have to do with us here in Wisconsin? Proponents of euthanasia have suffered numerous defeats since their big wins in Oregon in 1994 and 1997. They have subsequently lost in Michigan, Maine, Vermont, Hawaii and California (either ballot measures or legislation). They are desperate for a win and hand-picked Washington where a win could propel their cause across the nation.
Remember, it was just a few short months ago that a Wisconsin State Senate committee had a public hearing on a Wisconsin bill to legalize assisted suicide.
On election night, keep your eyes on Washington State and I 1000.
It seems that George Soros has unlimited capacity to spend money. His fingerprints are everywhere, especially on anti-life endeavors. Now comes news that Soros has contributed to two “Catholic” pro-abortion groups who are trying to convince the public that Obama is pro-life.
Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, two linked groups, are beneficiaries of major gifts from the Open Society Institute (OSI), a George Soros group. These groups came into existence after John Kerry lost the presidential election in 2004. Soros has also funded Catholics for Choice.
Soros has been involved in efforts over the years to legalize assisted suicide. It’s clear that he spends lavishly on his pet causes, and his views are as anti-life as they come.
The battle for the Catholic vote is becoming fiercer by the day, pitting Obama apologists against Catholic bishops and other commentators.
Chief Obama culprit is Pepperdine law professor Doug Kmiec who claims he is a pro-life Catholic. Kmiec blew his cover in an article written for the Los Angeles Times where he admitted that he is “personally opposed — but…..” This is the same tired, old rhetoric that politicians have used for years to deceive the public into thinking they are not pro-abortion.
Kmiec, Nicholas Cafardi and M. Cathleen Kaveny even take a whack at McCain in an article written for Newsweek. They claim McCain couldn’t really be for the reversal of Roe v. Wade because it hasn’t happened in the nearly three decades he has been in Congress.
So, let’s get this straight. McCain isn’t that strongly pro-life because he hasn’t single-handedly overturned Roe. But, Obama is pro-life, even though he promised Planned Parenthood that he’d like his first act as President to be the signing of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA).
FOCA would overturn all of the federal and state laws passed in the past 35 years that restrict abortion. FOCA would usher in taxpayer funding of abortion, partial-birth abortions, secret abortions for minors with no parental involvement, no required informed consent with waiting periods for women seeking abortions, and no conscience rights for medical professionals.
Yet, Kmiec and company insist that Obama is sincerely opposed to abortion and wants to reduce their numbers.
Patrick Whelan, president of Catholic Democrats, said: “I feel that every Catholic can vote for Obama in good conscience………Obama is the first Democratic presidential candidate who has come out and said he plans constructive measures to reduce the number of abortions in the United States.”
What measures? And, where are they? The only measure Obama has promised to deliver is FOCA which is certain to increase the number of abortions.
Planned Parenthood wants Tara Johnson to promote its radical pro-abortion agenda in the state senate. Planned Parenthood is the state’s largest abortion provider and operates three abortion clinics in Wisconsin.
Johnson has received the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin. Planned Parenthood’s agenda includes:
Taxpayer funding of abortion
No parental consent prior to a minor girl’s abortion
No required information for women seeking abortions, even if the abortions are forced abortions
No recognition for an unborn baby as a separate victim of a crime
The radically pro-abortion Johnson is challenging incumbent Senator Dan Kapanke who supports common-sense and widely supported measures such as parental consent prior to a minor girl’s abortion, protecting taxpayers from footing the bill for womens’ abortions, protecting women from being forced into having abortions and protecting babies from the horror of partial-birth abortion.
Why don’t you give Tara Johnson a call at 608-785-5862 and tell her that her support for Planned Parenthood’s outrageous agenda is way too extreme for the people of the 32nd State Senate district.
We’ve said it before and we’re saying it again because it bears repeating … Barack Obama is anti-life to the core! Here is just a sampling of statements that have come from his own mouth.
“Well, the first thing I would do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.”Obama’s made this promise to Planned Parenthood on July 17, 2007. The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would overturn all state laws restricting abortion such as prohibiting taxpayer funding of abortion, prohibiting partial-birth abortion, and requiring parental notification before a minor girl’s abortion.
When does a child receive human rights? “Answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”This was Obama’s response to the question at the Saddleback Forum held on August 16, 2008. John McCain’s response to the same question was “At the moment of conception.”“I don’t want my daughters punished with a baby.”Obama was talking about his young daughters possibly getting pregnant. This comment was made at a forum held in Johnston, Pennsylvania on March 29, 2008.
“I would have been completely in, fully in support of the federal bill that everybody supported - which was to say - that you should provide assistance to any infant that was born - even if it was as a consequence of an induced abortion. That was not the bill that was presented at the state level.”This quote was made by Obama in an August 16, 2008 interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network. The National Right to Life Committee found Illinois state records which indisputably document that as an Illinois State Senator, Obama voted against a bill to provide treatment to living, breathing babies who survive abortion attempts that was virtually identical to the federal law he now claims he would have supported given the chance. Obama has participated in a four-year cover-up of his vote and claims that NRLC is lying about his record, even though FactCheck.org, a non-partisan watchdog group, has reviewed all of the documents and concluded that Obama is the one who is lying about his record.
On the partial-birth abortion ban: “The fact remains, that with no provision to protect the health of the mother, this ban on a legitimate medical procedure is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned.”This quote is from an Obama fundraising letter in February 2004 signed by Michelle Obama. Obama, who was a professor of constitutional law, knows full well that “health” has been defined by the U.S. Supreme Court to mean all factors relevant to a women’s well-being - in other words, an abortion for any reason!
For additional information on the horrendous anti-life record of Barack Obama, go here.
In the 12th State Senate district, Republican Tom Tiffany faces former state legislator, Democrat Jim Holperin.
The fact is, Holperin is just too extreme for that district. Holperin supports continued abortion on demand for any reason, as many times as a woman wants one and he would like the taxpayer to foot the bill! Retiring Senator Roger Breske, also a Democrat, was a strong right-to-life supporter … one of the reasons he was re-elected over and over in that district. Breske was a good fit for the people of the 12th … Holperin isn’t.
Holperin’s extreme pro-abortion position won him the endorsement of the Progressive Majority of Wisconsin which considers “reproductive rights” a key component to their endorsements.
Tiffany, like Breske, is opposed to taxpayer funded abortion and supports legislation such as a ban on partial-birth abortion, requiring parental consent prior to a minor’s abortion and protecting women from being forced into having abortions. Tiffany has been endorsed by the Wisconsin Right to Life PAC.
Jim Holperin … way too extreme for the 12 State Senate district!
Authorized and paid for by the Wisconsin Right to Life PAC, Richard Fox, Treas. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
While much is being written about voter fraud, is there another type of fraud that is being perpetrated on the American public? Virtually everyone who is familiar with the mainstream media and its tactics knows it is mainly “in the tank” for Obama.
The latest version is the immediate pounce on poor Joe the Plumber, who innocently managed to get Obama to say in a way that people can understand how his proposed tax policies are going to impact them. Wisconsin Right to Life takes no position on tax policy. This is just an illustration of how the media will instantaneously trash anyone who exposes Obama, so intent are they on an Obama win.
The incessant trashing of Sarah Palin is beyond anything we’ve ever witnessed. And, Joe Biden gets a pass, even though he thinks the word “jobs” has three letters.
Even Dan Rather losing his job in 2004 hasn’t deterred the mainstream press in relentlessly pushing its own agenda — which in this case is an Obama win — instead of practicing real journalism.
Will the media steal the election? More and more Americans are getting fed up. Polls show it, and the move away from the major television networks and big city newspapers is another sign that you and I prefer to get our news unfiltered. It’s up to us to continually expose their bias and not let the media steal this election.
Kudos to John McCain! He answered the abortion question in last night’s debate directly by stating his strong pro-life position Then, he socked it to Obama by raising two of the issues that are Obama’s Achilles heel — medical care for abortion survivors and partial-birth abortion.
Obama, in true form, gave very deceptive answers. Feigned indignance that anyone would claim he wouldn’t protect babies who are alive following an abortion attempt, even though he did it four times as an Illinois State Senator. Obama has now shifted tactics. For four years he claimed he voted against these bills because they were not like the federal law. When Illinois documents showing that the Illinois law he opposed was virtually identical to the federal law he says he would have supported given the chance, he was caught red-handed.
Obama’s new deception is that Illinois already had a state law protecting these babies. Apparently, Obama is way smarter than the Illinois Attorney General who said the existing state law did NOT protect these infants, and the entire U.S. Congress who passed a Born Alive bill without dissent upon learning the situation at an Illinois hospital in Obama’s backyard which is at the center of this whole issue.
On partial-birth abortion, Obama said he would support a law prohibiting late-term (and then he threw in for good measure partial-birth) abortions. But, here’s the caveat — they had to have a life and “health” of the mother exception. Partial-birth abortions are generally done around the 21st week of pregnancy and one has to question if Obama thinks these are “late-term” abortions.
McCain was quick to respond that the term “health” means virtually any abortion and is the standard pro-abortion line. Kudos again to McCain.
I was more than a little disturbed by the pundits who, following the debate, criticized McCain. Why didn’t he talk about taxpayer funding of abortion and the Freedom of Choice Act, they asked? Quite frankly, we are having the same problem as McCain. Obama’s abortion position is so extreme that it is hard to get everything in in the few precious seconds of sound bite accorded. McCain picked two critical issues and stuck to them.
Only a few weeks left until the big election. Wisconsin Right to Life will continue up to 8:00pm on election night to expose Obama’s callous and extreme pro-abortion positions, and McCain’s commitment to the protection of human life.
Listen up, residents of the 8th State Senate district!
Democrat Sheldon Wasserman is challenging Republican incumbent Senator Alberta Darling in the most watched State Senate race in the state. (the 8th State Senate district includes Milwaukee’s North Shore communities, Mequon-Thiensville, Menomonee Falls, Richfield, Germantown).Wasserman has been in the State Assembly since 1994 and it is no exaggeration to say he has chalked up the most radical pro-abortion voting record possible! Here are the “highlights.”
Wasserman calls the pro-life movement the “Islamic Jihad of Wisconsin.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 6/22/03)
Voted against protecting a woman from being forced to have an abortion. (2007 AB 427)
Voted in favor of human cloning. (2005 AB 499). Wasserman was quoted as saying “an outright ban on cloning would hurt infertile couples who may want to use cloning to have their own children…” (Associated Press, 5/20/03)
Voted against restoring parental consent before a minor’s abortion. (2005 AB 175, 1999 AB 312)
Voted to allow the sale of body parts from aborted babies. (1999 AB 808)
Voted against a ban on partial-birth abortions. (2007 AB 175, 1997 AB 220)
Voted against recognizing an unborn baby as a separate victim. (1999 AB 221, 1995 AB 146). A 2008 Oconomowoc car accident killed a mother, one of her children and her unborn baby. The driver of the car is being charged with three homicides. Wasserman voted to only allow charges for two homicides, excluding the unborn child.
Voted against giving a woman seeking abortion full information with a 24-hour reflection period. (1995 AB 441)
Voted in favor of taxpayer funding of abortion-related activities. (2001 AB 831)
Sheldon Wasserman’s views on abortion are too radical for the people of the 8th State Senate District! Spread the word!
