|Wesley J. Smith|
“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

|Canada's Supreme Court|
The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) just concluded their annual meeting. Why did they not refuse outright to cooperate with high court to murder suicidal people? A doctor's job is to save lives not take lives -- or at least do no harm! The Supreme Court put the dirty work of their odious assisted suicide decision in the laps of physicians.
The federal government does have a tool at their disposal to override the Supreme Court's horrible ruling. They could invoke the "notwithstanding" clause (Section 33) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. With a federal election looming will any party elected use it? No.
Increasingly, Americans are at risk of being ruled by an activist
|U.S. Supreme Court|
In his first inaugural address, Abraham Lincoln said this:
". . . the candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made in ordinary litigation between parties in personal actions the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their government into the hands of eminent tribunal."
The insight of the great man is coming to pass, at least in Canada. The people have ceased to be their own rulers in these vital moral questions of life and death. In such matters we are ruled by Supreme Court tyrants whose benevolence is limited indeed.
 Post-Hippocratic physicians may not agree. Perhaps they would pass off such views woefully old fashioned for the Brave New 21st Century world of utilitarian medicine, bioethics and managed

WARNING: This post contains two photos of aborted babies
The link above is to the 8th of 12 videos produced by the Center For Medical Progress. This one features baby parts buyer StemExpress Founder and CEO, Cate Dyer, saying they want 50 MORE fetal livers PER WEEK. And as they say, Planned Parenthood is a good source because of their volume of abortions.
It is stated on their website (StemExpress.com): "StemExpress fuels regenerative medicine and tranlational research by supplying human-derived specimens to biomedical researchers around the world. Founded in 2010, StemExpress is the only company of its kind to procure tissues and isolate cells for researchers' individual needs in its own labs."

be referred to as an "intact specimen"
Proper ethics dictates that it is wrong to use the bodies of
intentionally murdered human beings (fetal or otherwise) to save other human beings. This is not legitimate medical research. Society must never sanction such things. Society must outlaw such practices and punish those involved.
Through massive federal and state funding for Planned Parenthood, the United States is sanctioning barbarism that would have appalled previous generations dating back to America's Founding Fathers.

It's an important question that must be asked of all Christians, not just Catholics. Evangelical denominations and churches should be using this moment in time to rally their memberships to pressure their Members of Congress (Senate and House of Representatives) and state governments to stop funding Planned Parenthood. A great way of showing this is by rallying together tomorrow.
The issue is nothing less than the dignity and sanctity of human life that God has created in His Image -- and calls us to protect and care for. Abortion and harvesting baby body parts is a direct and heinous assault of that dignity and sanctity.
Although I am in Canada, I will be with you in prayer. You are Christ's hands and feet. God bless. --

I wish with all my heart that my conscience did not compel me to post a new video of Planned Parenthood's barbaric abortions and harvesting fetal parts. I cannot be silent in the face of such evil. The video below is the latest release from the Center for Medical Progress.
I want American readers of this blog to hold accountable at the ballot box during the U.S. general election in 2016 those Members of Congress who stopped the bill to defund of Planned Parenthood. Find out who they were and ensure they are not re-elected. They are unfit for public office. Support only those congressional candidates (Senate and House of Representatives) who vow to defund Planned Parenthood. This not the only issue of concern for public office, but it is a disqualifying issue
