Hospice Deaths Suspicious

Sanctuary Hospice House in Tupelo, Kansas is under investigation over suspicious deaths.

Willie Bennett said her mother and brother-in-law died at the hospice.

Bennett said her mother's death was attributed to heart failure, but she believes medications administered at the hospice, including morphine, brought on death.

She would not discuss the death of her brother-in-law due to the pending investigation.

But the story she told about her mother's death -- allegedly heavy doses of morphine and a rapid demise -- is eerily similar to the experience another family described.

Rebecca A. Dilliard, of Eatonton, Ga., said investigators with the attorney general's office told her family that the hospice killed her mother.

"They had proof -- 100 percent -- that they killed our mother," said Dillard.

This is probably not the only hospice in the US giving large doses of medication to patients to hasten their death. There should be widespread investigations of all hospices/nursing homes, to be certain the patients aren't being murdered.

Given the apathy on the part of the staff of a certain local nursing home towards their patients, I would say overdosing those in their care is very common.

He Wasn't Really Brain Dead

Zack Dunlop was declared brain dead, for the sole purpose of harvesting his organs. Thank God for his cousins, acting on a hunch he was still with us.

The young man himself told NBC that he heard the doctors pronounce him brain dead, and said, "I'm glad I couldn't get up and do what I wanted to do." When asked what he wanted to do, he responded, "There probably would have been a broken window they went out."

Maybe Zack should act on that instinct, and do what he intended. It may save the lives of others, and prevent these "doctors" from killing people just to steal their organs.

This is a case where I believe this young man should sue. They (the "doctors") should pay substantially, not just monetarily, but wih the loss of their licenses to practice medicine.

Pro-Lifer Charged For Removing Remains

Dr. Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, has been billed $1,100 by the DEQ for the removal of evidence against the Lathrup Village Woman Care clinic, operated by abortionist Alberto Hodari. The evidence, discovered in dumpsters behind the clinic and videotaped by Miller, consists of the recognizable remains of at least 18 aborted children, numerous records with personal and detailed information of Hodari's patients, as well as other bio-hazardous waste material.

"I said I was willing to pay for the transport of the aborted babies to the funeral home," Miller told LifeSiteNews. But she says she never promised to pay for the removal of all the biohazardous materials, especially for over $1,000. Dr. Miller also told LifeSiteNews that she spoke with Robert McCann, spokesman for the DEQ and that he said he would look into the bill sent to Dr. Miller.

"Hodari doesn't get fined a single cent!" said Dr. Miller, "The state had the bill charged to me for the removal of the evidence from my property. Something doesn't seem right here."

Of course it's not right. Why should Dr. Miller believe the state would have any common sense, when all she did was remove the remains for a proper burial?

Hodari gets away with dumping babies, yet the state goes after the person who wanted them to be buried. Stupidity rules in Michigan.

PP Streamlining

Listen to the young man who says "they" will have to answer to "us", meaning the pro-death supporters vs. pro-lifers. I'm hopeful Roe v Wade will be overturned much sooner, thanks to the efforts of the youth.

Tiller Speaks To NEA

On another blog, it was reported that George Tiller spoke to the NEA on March 9. Here is a video that was secretly recorded by two employees of The audio can be loud or soft at times.

Warning: graphic images

Pro-lifers are constantly attacked if we display pictures of aborted babies, yet when Tiller "the killer" and the pro-abortion crowd uses the same images to show their "work", it's fine.

These people have serious mental defects, to even think killing babies is normal. Parents should keep their kids away from them.

Belgium Proposes Euthanasia For Teens And Children

I have no other comments, except to say this is absolutely sickening.

Far Left UK Teachers' Union Calls for Abolition of Religious Schools

So a left-wing radical want to eliminate religious schools

At their Manchester conference this week, the National Union of Teachers (NUT), the largest teachers' union in the UK, have called for the abolition of single-faith schools and for clergy of every religion to be brought into classrooms. At this weekend's NUT conference in Manchester, the union said that continuing to support schools of individual religions was "unjust and unsustainable" and would undermine race relations. The NUT, Britain's largest and most influential teachers' union, continues to lead the extreme left wing in Britain's teaching professions.

Under the NUT proposal, schools should bring in imams, rabbis and priests to mollify parental demands for religious instruction in schools but specifically in order to prevent the establishment of new single-faith schools. Reflecting a government instruction that no religious or moral values should be taught to students as though they are objectively true, the NUT proposals would see all schools become "multi-faith" institutions in which no one religion is presented as true. Schools moreover should be stripped of their powers to control their own admissions and select pupils according to their faith.

I thought being liberal meant accepting all faiths? Oh, that's right - if it's against what they believe, religion must be eradicated.

Does anyone else notice the acronym for this wacko organization is NUT? How appropriate ;-)

Nebraska Bans Public Funding for Destructive Embryo Research

This can only be good news!

48 of the 49 Nebraskan senators voted Tuesday to pass Legislative Bill 606 banning some human cloning. The measure was quickly signed by Governor Dave Heineman. The measure allows research grants to be given to institutions doing stem cell research without using embryos. The new law also prohibits public funding of research that creates or destroys embryos for stem cell research.

The bill was passed on condition that neither side in the debate would introduce more legislation regarding cloning or stem cell research unless one of three conditions are met: if private sector research is undertaken that destroys human embryos or creates cloned embryos; if scientific advances create new ethical considerations; or if the prohibitions in LB 606 were violated.

The measure was conditionally supported by the spokesman for Nebraska Right to Life, Julie Schmit-Albin, who said, "Though it isn't everything we wanted in LB 700, this is one of those times where we can gain something or achieve nothing and we chose the former." Schmit-Albin was referring to what she called "the true cloning ban." Nebraska Right to Life has been fighting for a cloning ban since 2000.

Previously the bill had included a prohibition only on cloning for reproductive purposes, a common ploy of the pro-cloning lobby to create the appearance of ethical principles. But pro-life lobbyists were able to change the measure to afford a degree of restriction on "therapeutic cloning", or cloning for stem cell research.

It's a step in the right direction, and hopefully Nebraskans will get a bill similar to the original one. Until then, we have to take every little victory we can get.

Australia Teacher on Trial for Sexually Abusing Teen, Getting Her Abortion

Article here:

These are people who are trusted to educate our children, and are "mandated reporters" for the state????

It's proven once again perverts will flock to wherever the children are. Covered up by the system, with the endorsement of the pro-death crowd.

Deep Sedation is Often "Slow Euthanasia"

Editorial here:

I was unaware deep sedation was used as a form of euthanasia in the Netherlands. I also have to wonder if it's used here in the US, and isn't reported.

Prime Minister Brown Partially Caves On Bill

Most recent reports this evening have said that Prime Minister Gordon Brown has caved in to pressure within his cabinet and the weekend's barrage from the Churches, by saying that now Labour MPs will be allowed to vote according to their conscience on some aspects of the bill including the creation of human/animal hybrid clones, but continues to insist that they support it as a whole.

After weeks of insisting on complete support for the bill Brown said, "On the three issues where, for the first time, these ethical issues are being debated in Parliament in this new way - and that's so-called admix embryos, the second one is saviour siblings and the third one is IVF research - exercising your conscience will mean for Labour Party members a free vote."

Activists Defend Barack Obama's Vote Against Victims of Botched Abortions

In a recent editorial at the pro-abortion blog RH Reality Check, activist Dana Goldstein writes about a "conservative smear campaign" highlighting Obama's radical pro-abortion position.

Goldstein says the "anti-Obama strategy" is based on Obama's votes against the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

That's the measure that helps babies who are victims of botched abortions or left to die without any medical treatment following intentional premature births, otherwise known as induced-birth or live-birth abortions.

Goldstein applauds Obama for voting against the bill, when a federal version passed in the U.S. Senate on a unanimous vote with the support of pro-life and pro-abortion lawmakers.

"It is to Barack Obama's credit that, as an Illinois state senator, he voted against BAIPA twice, and then, as chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee in 2003, prevented it from advancing to the floor," she writes.

Telling the truth is NOT a smear campaign. Only in the eyes of the dishonest pro-death crowd would the truth be called a lie.

Remember Dana Goldstein, that the blood of all those dead babies is on your hands for supporting someone even further to the left of NARAL.

Oops! CBS catches Hillary Clinton's lies about Bosnia

Typical, of the Clinton lies:

I love watching the two left-wing liberals pounding each other this campaign. Although I'm not fond of John McCain, all he has to do is sit back and enjoy the mud-slinging by these two. They'll be the reason he is elected president.

Threatened Oklahoma Politician Refuses to Apologize for Saying Homosexuality is Dangerous and Sinful

Oklahoma House Representative Sally Kern is standing firm in her convictions on the immorality and danger of the homosexual lifestyle, despite some 30,000 emails condemning her, many of which included hateful rhetoric and some death threats. The most hard-hitting portions of a speech she gave to a Republican club on the subject of homosexual activism in America were posted online by a homosexual activist group.

Some 300 activists rallied against Kern at the State Capital Tuesday. In comments to AP, however, she stood firm against the criticisms, stating that she was not engaging in hate speech. "I see no reason to apologize for what God says, that homosexuality is a sin," she told AP. "I will not apologize. I did not say anything false. I did not say anything malicious or hateful."

During her original speech Kern predicted she might face trouble for her forthright remarks, but she stressed that she was speaking out of concern for those engaged in a destructive lifestyle. ""The very fact that I'm talking to you like this here today puts me in jeopardy," she said in her speech. "So, so be it. I'm not anti, I'm not gay bashing, but according to God's Word, that is not the right kind of lifestyle. It has deadly consequences for those people involved in it. They have more suicides ... there's more illness. Their life spans are shorter."

Kern asserts that the First Amendment protects her in voicing her concerns about homosexuality and homosexual activism. "I'm not going to apologize for exercising my First Amendment right," she told The Oklahoman.

Unfortunately, she is wrong about the first amendment applying to her. We have "hate crime" laws in this country, and it's only a matter of time before one of the pro-homosexual lunatics decides to either have her charged with a crime, or sues her.

Kudos to you, Representative Kern! We need more and more politicians who are willing to stand up and tell the truth!

Scientists Excited Bush Stem Cell Research Policy May Change After Elections

Scientists who engage in stem cell research are excited that the policy President Bush has put in place about the practice could be overturned with the election of a new president. Bush prevented making taxpayers fund any new embryonic stem cell research with their tax dollars because it involves the destruction of human life.

However, each of the three major contenders for the presidency -- John McCain, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton -- have voted for bills to overturn those limits.

Adult stem cells have been proven to cure diseases, while embryonic stem cells have never shown such promise. It's just another way for "scientists" and politicians to perpetuate the lie about the use of such cells, and the destruction of human life.

French Euthanasia Advocate Didn't Die of Natural Causes, Autopsy Indicates

French euthanasia advocate Chantal Sebire did not die of natural causes, according to an autopsy done on her body following her death last week. Sebire wanted help to take her own life because she had a rare tumor that was ravaging her face and she unsuccessfully pressed for France to allow the practice.

Sebire died suddenly on Wednesday, just two days following a court's decision denying her the ability to have a physician prescribe her a lethal dose of drugs.

An autopsy on her body has yet to pinpoint the cause of death but Dijon prosecutor Jean-Pierre Alacchi told the media it showed she didn't die of natural causes

France adopted a law in 2005 that allows patients to refuse lifesaving medical treatment, but it does not allow assisted suicide nor does it allow euthanasia -- where a doctor would actively administer the toxic drugs.

The law says medical treatment should not include "unreasonable efforts" and that a terminally ill patient should be able to "limit or stop all treatment."

Doctors can stop giving treatment when it "seems useless, disproportionate or has no effect other than maintaining life artificially."

Following Sebire's death, several top officials have said it may be necessary to review the nation's law.

Should France legalize assisted suicide it would join other European nations in doing so.

Isn't this the reason used to enact Roe v Wade in the US? Where does it end, when human life is deemed to be "worthless"?

Taking A Break

I'm taking a break from blogging for the rest of Lent. I need to concentrate on the season, on Our Lord's passion, death and resurrection. Continue to pray for all the babies who will be aborted over the next couple weeks, as well as all those people who will be starved/abused at the hands of those who are supposed to care for them.

Please read the links on the side. If anything spectacular takes place before Easter, I promise to post it :-)

"Expelled" Super Trailer

The movie "Expelled" with Ben Stein, is being released on April 18. I strongly urge everyone to see this film. Here is the trailer:

It's about time those who are in the "scientific" community are exposed for the liars they are. We also need to take back our schools and force them to stop teaching this garbage to unsuspecting children.

York University Blocks Abortion Debate between Pro-Abortion Atheist and Pro-Life Worker

he York University Student Centre cancelled the debate, entitled "Abortion Debate: A Woman's Right or a Moral Wrong?" a mere two hours before it started. As a result, dozens of students were turned away at the door. The debate was to have been between pro-abortion atheist Michael Payton from Freethinkers, Skeptics and Atheists at York, and Jojo Ruba of Calgary's pro-life Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform. It was intended to be a balanced debate on abortion, moderated by the York Debating Society.

"We would not have a debate over something that is racist or homophobic," said Gilary Massa, vice-president equity of the York Federation of Students. "This debate is sexist … when it comes to free speech there is a line. … They are talking about taking away women's rights. We would not allow a debate asking if women beating should be allowed."

"I was told in a meeting by members of the York Federation of Students that debating abortion is comparable to debating whether a man should be allowed to beat his wife," said Margaret Fung, President of Students for Bioethical Awareness, an official York University club and co-sponsor of the debate. "They said that there is freedom of speech to a limit, and that abortion is not an issue to debate. They demanded that the event not take place and shut us down."

Fung was present with Jeremy Salter, Executive Director of the YFS, Fuad Abdi, VP of Operations of the YFS and the Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Student Centre, and Amir Mohareb, President of the York Debating Society when the debate was shut down.

"The Student Centre has made sure that anyone with different views than theirs can't express themselves, even if both points of view are represented," said Fung. "They don't seem to understand that we live in a free, democratic society. A university is supposed to be a marketplace of ideas not a propaganda machine for political extremists."

The stupidity being displayed at this "university" is quite frightening. These are the same people who insist on "diversity", yet will do anything in their power to shut down and vilify opposing opinions.

These "students" should learn the facts about abortion before showing the rest of the world how ridiculous they are. Abortion is both sexist and racist. I have to assume they're not literate enough to understand those facts.

Haleigh Poutre Will Testify Against Attacker

This is the girl they wanted to dehydrate to death. She was declared "unresponsive", "pvs", etc. When the courts decided they wanted to kill her, she began waking from this "vegetative" state.

It just goes to show how dubious this diagnosis can be.

Praying for Haleigh, that she is able to bring her surviving attacker to justice.

Liberal MP's Oppose Cloning Bill

The Liberal Party in England, which has the current British governmental majority, is seeing some Catholic MPs rebelling over the Human Fertilisation and Embryology bill. The measure would promote the kind of cloning practices Catholics oppose and some top government officials could vote no even if the Party doesn't allow a free vote.

Three British cabinet ministers could defy an instruction from their party to support the measure, including Ruth Kelly, Des Browne and Paul Murphy.

Andy Burnham, the Culture Secretary, is also said to have raised objections.

The bill allows the creation of clones that are 99 percent human but also have animal DNA infused. Scientists want to clone and kill these chimeras to search for cures for diseases.

Schiavo Family Launches Radio Program

Terri Schiavo's Family Launches New Radio Program on Protecting the Disabled

The foundation that Terri Schiavo's family created after her death is continuing its efforts to help the elderly and disabled obtain appropriate medical care. It is launching a new radio program on a Tampa station that will be simulcast on the Internet and later expanded to other Florida stations.

The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation will start the new America's Lifeline program this weekend live from the Tampa studios of Talk Radio 860 WGUL, a Christian station.

Prominent radio health care advocate Cary Hall will co-sponsor the program along with Terri's brother Bobby Schindler and her sister Suzanne Vitadamo, the foundation's directors.

Hall is also the host of a successful radio show called The Health Insurance Advocate which broadcasts from two Midwest stations.

"America's Lifeline is something we've wanted to do for some time," Vitadamo told on Thursday.

I wonder how long it will take the pro-death crowd to demand it be shut down. Also, how long before Michael Schiavo comes out and says the family isn't honoring "Terri's wishes" by creating this radio program.

When Parents Become Executioners

This part of the article stood out for me:

Abortion is currently protected by positive law. It shouldn’t be. It is against the Natural Law that can be known by all and is binding upon all. These extreme cases present us an opportunity to seriously reflect on what we have allowed to happen. The intentional killing of children in the womb is simply wrong and we all know it. Roe v Wade must go.

Then there is the other sticky issue.

Who gets to decide whether children in the womb live or die? Not the child. They are relegated to the status of property to be disposed of when inconvenient.

Have we turned Parents into executioners?

On the one hand, parents are permitted to kill their own children with the consent of the state. If the parent allows that same child to live, the parent had better not try to indoctrinate that child in their beliefs, otherwise the long arm of "cps" will step in.

The child is property of the parent if they wish the child dead; once the child is born, he/she becomes the property of the state. How sick and twisted is that logic :-(

Editorial: Canadian Catholic Priest Politician Condemns Founders in Parliament

Catholic priest Rev. Raymond Gravel, who, prior to the launch of his political career was already infamous for publicly opposing the Vatican on homosexuality and abortion, has recently taken pains to make himself appear pro-life in Parliament., however, has several times reported on Gravel’s heretical and anti-life statements, such as his repeated and public denunciation of the Vatican for its position on homosexuality, and his statement on radio in 2004: "I am pro-choice and there is not a bishop on earth that will prevent me from receiving Communion, not even the Pope."

And this:

In an eight minute speech in the House of Commons yesterday, which was supposed to address the Unborn Victims of Crime legislation, Gravel instead used almost the entire time to portray himself as being against abortion. In doing so he claimed that he was misrepresented by, which he said instigated the complaints to his religious superiors. From the Official Hansard: “I get the feeling that comments made by two people, John-Henry Weston in and Mr. Jalzevac, incited this taking up of arms.” (Of course both Steve's and my last names were spelled incorrectly, but there we are in the official Hansard nonetheless.)

Gravel protested in Parliament that his remarks opposing the Unborn Victims of Crime bill were misrepresented. “I think this is in order because my bishop and the apostolic nunciature in Ottawa have received a number of e-mails,” he said. “I want to clarify and qualify a few things. First, I am against abortion. I regard human life as sacred and abortion as always being a tragedy in our society. We must do everything in our power, while showing respect for those involved, to limit the number of abortions and promote life.”

We don't need to "limit" the number of abortions, they must be abolished, period. Father Gravel's true colors shone through in his rant against Lifesite and pro-lifers in general.

Clinton Candidacy Still Alive

Clinton Wins Ohio, Texas; McCain Clinches GOP Nomination

It certainly looks like Pennsylvania is going to be the deciding factor for the Democratic nominee. Usually, the race is locked up by now. Also looks like there are heavy registrations in the Democratic party in Monroe county.

The Obama camp was already discounting Clinton. She's not singing yet *vbg*

Parental Notification Law Invalid

This is a victory for PP and those who want to subvert parental rights.

Courts continue to prevent the enforcement of a 1995 parental notification law on abortion as a federal judge has issued a decision refusing to life an injunction on it. The lack of a parental involvement law has encouraged teenagers in cities in neighboring states, such as St. Louis, to go across the border for secret abortions.

The law had been on hold since the legislature passed it in 1995 because the state Supreme Court hadn't approved the administrative rules for it.

Abortion advocates had filed a lawsuit against the notification requirement to block parents from knowing about their teen's abortion decision until the rules were completed.

So let's get this straight: adults who are strangers can take teens to abortion clinics without parental consent and have an invasive procedure performed on these girls, and the parents have no say, all because of some "abuse" clause that wasn't implemented. Isn't it reasonable to assume those adults taking the teens to get an abortion are the ones committing the abuse? I guess parents are the only ones capable of abuse /sarcasm/

The Unborn Are Really Chimps

This is one of those articles that makes you go "what?????":

A former attorney general and human rights commission chairman is claiming that unborn children in the earliest stages of development are not human, and are in fact chimpanzees.

Dr. Jorge Carpizo McGregor claims that "for the topic of abortion, there are very important scientific advances that prove that the DNA of chimpanzees is 99 percent identical to that of a human being. The difference between ourselves and chimpanzees is one percent, this quantity that makes the difference is the central nervous system."

"Before twelve weeks of gestation, there is no cerebral cortex, that is to say, there is no human being, the cortex is formed around the 25th week. This is a very important piece of information because those who attack abortion say that a human being is being killed and it isn't true."

"That's ridiculous," said Dr. John Shea, medical advisor to Canada's Campaign Life Coalition. "This is the most ignorant remark I think the man could possibly make. He must be totally ignorant of science."

Dr. Shea was shocked to hear that a prominent attorney was claiming that the only difference between a chimpanzee and a human being was in the nervous system. "That's so ignorant that I don't know where to begin," he told LifeSiteNews. "The organism is different in every single way" he said, and added that "a person is different in a trillion different biochemical ways. It's ludicrous, ludicrous. It's on it's face, ridiculous."

I agree with Dr. Shea. This is one of the most outrageous arguments presented to claim unborn babies before twelve weeks gestation are nothing more than chimps.

Barack Obama: My Pro-Abortion Position Doesn't Make Me Less Christian

The usual lies and spin, coming from the mouth of the leading Democratic candidate:

Senator Barack Obama spoke at Hocking College in Ohio on Sunday and continued to peddle the message that his pro-abortion position isn't at odds with Biblical values. He said his view that abortions should be legal without any limits and funded with taxpayer dollars does not make him "less Christian."

Obama has come under strong condemnation from pro-life groups because he not only supports abortion but has repeatedly attempted to justify it as compatible with Christian views.

"I think that the bottom line is that in the end, I think women, in consultation with their pastors, and their doctors, and their family, are in a better position to make these decisions than some bureaucrat in Washington," Obama said, according to a WTAP-TV report. "That's my view."

"Again, I respect people who may disagree, but I certainly don't think it makes me less Christian. Okay," the Democratic presidential candidate added.

Yes, it does make you less Christian. In fact, it means you're not Christian at all. Real Christians do not support or condone the murder of innocents. Obama is a fraud in the Christian world, regardless of denomination.

Scientists, Govt Ignore Abortion-Breast Cancer Link Leading Surgeon Says

A leading breast cancer surgeon has published an article in a top medical journal accusing scientists and the federal government of ignoring the well-established link between abortion and breast cancer. Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, a New Jersey based breast cancer expert, says politics is corrupting science.

She presents her evidence in a new article in the March 2008 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Lanfranchi, a clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center, provided shocking examples to show how federal officials have suppressed information concerning the breast cancer risks related to abortion.

"Informed patient consent for medical treatment is required by both law and medical ethics. Yet, both federal agencies and academicians are participating in the suppression of information about the heightened risk of breast cancer posed by oral contraceptives and induced abortion," she explained.

She said both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have "violated their mission statements" by refusing to acknowledge the abortion-breast cancer link.

The link between breast cancer and abortion has been covered up for years. People are finally waking up to this fact, although it's too late for many women.

Custody Battle Threatens Health and Life of Aging Priest

A terminally ill Roman Catholic priest is the center of a tempestuous legal battle between a court-appointed temporary guardian - who has demanded his return to an Arizona care center - and family and friends - who believe such a move could kill him.

Fr. Bernard "Brian" Gallagher, 76, a retired priest from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Yakima, Washington, is the focus of a custody struggle between his family and a woman acting as his legal emergency guardian. Imelda Guadalupe "Lupe" Kowalczyk has insisted to authorities that Fr. Gallagher is mentally incompetent and cannot make his own decisions, among which is Fr. Gallagher's well-documented desire to live with fellow religious in California and to finish his days with constant access to the Mass and the sacraments.

Earlier this week, Fr. Gallagher was taken, at his own urgent request, and over the objections of Kowalczyk, from a nursing home in Payson, Arizona to the well-equipped cancer care facilities at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, California. Once there it was discovered that Fr. Gallagher was suffering from an infected bladder, the beginnings of aspiration pneumonia from poor feeding tube treatment, as well as other symptoms. He had also lost a considerable amount of weight.

But sources say Arizona law enforcement is now exerting pressure to return Fr. Gallagher into the custody of Kowalczyk, who had deprived him of all contact with friends and family and the right to the Catholic Church's sacraments. Those who are close to the terminally ill priest say any move from the hospital could jeopardize his life.

An attorney representing Fr. Gallagher, has instructed the hospital that the priest "not be moved and certainly not be moved at the behest of the very person whose motives and legal actions we are questioning in the California courts."

Father Gallagher rescinded the power of attorney he gave to Kowalczyk:

Documents obtained by show that Kowalczyk seized emergency legal guardianship of Fr. Gallagher shortly after learning that the priest, dissatisfied with her unwillingness to return him to California, relieved her of her power of attorney and reassigned any health-care directive and legal control over his finances to his cousin James Logsdon.

"I, Father Brian T. Gallagher, fully revoke the Power of Attorney from Lupe Kowalczyk from St. John's, AZ as having power of attorney over my affairs," reads the letter, signed by Fr. Gallagher and also signed by witnesses on February 16, 2008. Again on February 19, Fr. Gallagher repeated this instruction before witnesses, which was recorded by friend Denise Riggio. (Listen to recording:

The priest also expressed his wish to return to San Juan Capistrano or live in a religious institute, "so that I may be with the Blessed Sacrament daily as well as receive the sacraments daily till the end of my days."

Kowalczyk, however, sought and obtained Temporary Guardianship and Temporary Conservator over Fr. Gallagher after she asserted that the priest was mentally incompetent. A hearing to review guardianship is scheduled for March 13 in Apache County, Arizona, where she resides. The same day that she obtained emergency guardianship, Kowalczyk ordered Payson Care Center staff to cut off Fr. Gallagher from all visitors and all means of communication, including reception of the sacraments.

Several of Fr. Gallagher's friends had traveled from California to visit him on February 23, but were abruptly turned away by several nurses following Kowalczyk's "no visitor" orders. The visitors observed other signs of neglect, including a mattress on the floor to catch the priest if he fell off the bed, lack of bed sheets, insufficient clothing on his body, and the fact that he was lying flat on his back with his feeding tube installed, which can cause aspiration pneumonia.

Does that sound like someone who is mentally incompetent?

There's something missing from this story. I have to wonder exactly what Kowalczyk has to gain by cutting off Father from his family.

I will be praying for him.

Biotech Firm to Provide Alternatives to Vaccines Using Tissue From Abortions

A biotech firm has announced it will offer ethical alternatives to some of the vaccines that currently rely on the use of fetal tissue from abortions. The Seattle-based AVM Biotechnology says it will produce ethical alternatives in the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and vaccine development.

The news gives hope to pro-life people who have been reluctant to use some vaccines because their development came as a result of the destruction of unborn children.

“We will be working to bring commercially available, morally acceptable, vaccines to the US market and to use existing technology to produce new morally certified vaccines," says Dr. Theresa Deisher, the research and development director for AVM.

"Revenues from the vaccine business will also further the research, development and commercialization of morally certified therapeutics in other areas of medicine as well," she added.

It's about time!

Planned Parenthood of Idaho Backtracks on Apology for Racist Abortion Donation

From the article:

"Planned Parenthood firmly and unequivocally denounces racial bias in the delivery of health care," the statement read.

It continued: "A fund raising employee violated the organization's principles and practices when she appeared to be willing to accept a racially motivated donation. This employee made a serious mistake. We apologize for the manner in which this offensive call was handled."

However, Poedy appeared to backtrack from the apology in comments to the Boise Weekly, a liberal publication.

She painted the calls as misleading and said PPI was a victim of race-baiting.

"It's an extremist, anti-choice group that has manipulated a 25-minute conversation," Poedy said. "It's not an accurate representation of the transcript."

"They're all designed with an intent to bait someone into a conversation they can then manipulate," she added.

So now PP is a "victim" by being baited into a conversation?

All Autumn Kersey had to say was "PP does not accept donations based on or geared towards any specific ethnic race or group". Instead, the idiot decides to play along, and take the donation. Anything for a buck should be their motto :-(
