Happy Birthday

Today you turn 55. Thought about you and wished you a very Happy Bday in the only way I could. Made sure you were remembered, and prayed. Wish it could be different, but He is in control. God bless you.

Numbers 6:24-26
The LORD bless you and keep you:
The LORD make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

Remember, 143447, 6453!

Schiavo -- A Post Life Abortion

Another attorney speaks out for Terri Schiavo. Bravo!

In this article, Mr Stratton also includes links to other sites on the subject. One man's articles that I strongly recommend is Nat Hentoff's Lying about Terri Schiavo .

A Visit With Terri Schiavo

For what seems like an eternity, but is in actuality only a few years, I have been writing where ever and whenever I can about Terri Schindler Schiavo. I have written to newspapers that called her 'brain dead', telling them that if Terri were brain dead, she would be on a respirator, NOT breathing on her own. I have corrected any medical terminology that was used which was incorrect, based on everything I could find to read about her, and videos of her that are online.

Terri is not dying, I said. Terri is only brain-damaged, as are MANY people in this world, in this country. I have described a G-tube, and how it is used. I showed that again, MANY people in this world are using G or J tubes to live, and this is NOT artificial, but formula-type liquids and water. Jevity, Ensure, Glucerna are some of the names used, and many people use these very liquids to supplement their own diets.

As a nurse for 32 years, and a nursing assistant before then, I have taken care of MANY patients like Terri, adult and child. I have seen MANY improve with the therapies that Michael Schiavo has forbidden (in spite of winning a law suit which gave Terri $750,000 to use for that treatment).

Her family's first attorney worked very hard to save her life. Their new attorneys since Sept, 2004 have been also, and finally got a chance to MEET their clients' daughter on Christmas Eve.
According to this response from one of them, they saw Terri nearly the same way I have been describing her. Terri is alive, responsive, and she LAUGHS at her father's jokes.

This article is an excellent description that should be read by everyone. This case is ominous, for many reasons. It is an affront to any disabled person, regardless of cause of the disability, wether from illness, injury, or birth. Every human being has a right to essential basics even if only for 'comfort care'. This includes food, water, air and shelter. Terri is NOT a vegetable, she is a child of God, a human being.

Mr Schiavo has gone on with his life without Terri, living in an adulterous relationship with another woman by whom he has now had two children for at least the last nine years. Which parts of the vows they spoke has he kept?

Catholic Wedding Vow forms:

I, N., take you, N., to be my wife.
I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health.
I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.

I, N., take you, N., for my lawful wife,
to have and to hold, from this day forward,
for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health,
until death do us part.

Michael Reagan's "Twice Adopted"

Michael Reagan- 9 minutesWorth listening to.

Written interview

Including his father's role, and regret regarding no fault (forced, unilateral) divorce.

Michael Reagan's Definition of Divorce, from page 37:
"Divorce is where two adults take everything that matters to a child---the child's home, family, security, and sense of being loved and protected--and they smash it all up, leave it in ruins on the floor, then walk out and leave the child to clean up the mess."
- - -
The only problem with his definition is that it is usually ONE ADULT that does it.

Excellent Book

STOLEN VOWS by Judy Parejko
Review by Robert L. Plunkett

With Stolen Vows, Judy Parejko has written an insightful and potentially important book about divorce. In it, she concentrates on two stories, the one about her experiences as a divorce mediator who broke the unspoken cardinal rule of that profession; she actually tried to save the marriages of the people before, and consequently lost her career.

The other is the history of how groups of slick lawyers, divorcing men and politicians pulled a sleight of hand, which stole the marriage vows from us.Though the author's personal story begins first, the latter story, the political history is the cause of her career saga.

In the 1960's we had a divorce system, which was in need of some first aid. The divorce rate was rising and the integrity of the courts was being compromised by fraudulent misuse of the traditional system. In came some well-meaning intellectuals with a solution, eliminate the element of fault from divorce in cases of truly hopeless marriages and bring a marriage hospital to the aid of the rest.

Society brought who they thought was Dr. Welby to the rescue of marriage, only to find that they had hired Dr. Kevorkian. To make a long story short, the politicians, including some specifically seeking a way out of giving their soon-to-be ex-wives their due, abandoned the idea of the marriage hospital and put into place a system of divorce for the asking. This has robbed marriage of its essential meaning and has left a holocaust of broken homes in its wake.

Before I had read this book, I was aware of the general history of the switch to no-fault, but had no idea of the extent that the project was a bait-and-switch operation. This story by itself, told blow by blow, is worth the price of the book.

The second story, illustrates how a divorce industry has grown like triffidsin the wake of no fault. The last thing the courts, the lawyers and the rest of that industry want is to save marriages. The author shows how the system stacks the deck against reconciliation and in favor of its vested interest of breaking up marriages.
Finally, the author does suggest a plan of action, including changing the law and actually having the marriage hospitals which had been the first idea that led to the larceny which is the present system of divorce.

Everyone who cares about the future of the family should read this book.

Robert L. Plunkett is an attorney, a college, university, and law school instructor,
former Vice Dean of the Southern California Institute of Law as well as a writer on divorce and other subjects.
His commentary on no-fault divorce, Vow for Now, appeared in the

"It Was Horrible, Horrible!"

I was made aware of this story from CWNews, who credited Jeff Miller of The Curt Jester who credited Matt C Abbott and Free Republic.

I personally think that it should be read by everyone, but pray that it will be read by more than just those of us who KNOW what is happening. More importantly, that it will be taken to HEART by all who read it, especially those who are on the fence regarding pre-born babies.
