January 22, 1973.
A sad day in US history.
A case built on lies went before the US Supreme Court, where an activist court made abortion on demand the law of the Land.
The pre-born baby became an object, a parasite, a blob of cells, 'products of conception', a thing to be done away with at the whim and will of one, the very one God ordained to nurture and protect that little life. That, in spite of the fact that it took two to create that life, and often, the second person has no more 'choice' in the matter than does the condemned... all in the name of 'freedom'... 'rights'.... 'liberation'.
Norma McCorvey was used by two attorneys with an agenda. Norma had already given birth by the time that the case made it to the Supreme Court. Norma never had a abortion, but she was used to open the door for many to die...in 'her name', "JANE ROE".
Sandra Besing Cano was used in the same way by other attorneys, as "DOE" of "DOE V BOLTON".
NEITHER "ROE" NOR "DOE" ever had an abortion! And Sandra Cano fled when her attorneys insisted she have one.... it was against everything she believed. She later lost her grandchild as a result of the thinking that has resulted from the Decision done in her 'name'.... We now have had a baby survive who weighed less at birth than did her own grandson.
There can be no doubt about what an egg and a sperm of two human beings becomes when united in the process of Conception. A new creation, a new human being completely separate from either of the two before, with different DNA, a different heart beat, different finger prints, with the same rights that we have who have been born. The difference is only in place... one resides inside the womb, the others have emerged into the world, but continue to grow and change until the day of Natural Death. The results of the conception between a man and a woman can never be a frog, a fish, a bird, a wolf, or anything BUT another human being.
We have lied to an entire generation of young women; almost two generations, in fact. We have told them that they have the right to that body, to do with as they choose. They don't.
Their 'choice' took place when they had sexual intercourse (married or unmarried, with one man or ...) unless they were raped/incest. The consequences of that choice is what we are talking about...the result is a natural outcome of intercourse! It is precisely what intercourse is designed to do. There is no such thing as an 'accidental pregnancy'. We cannot separate having sex from having a natural thing happen as a result of that decision. Intercourse ends with placing sperm into the woman that have one intent... to find that egg first.
The choice is to have sex or not to have sex. It is not even to have UNPROTECTED sex, as condoms (and each other form of contraception) has FAILURE rates. Every single form of contraception has a failure rate built into it, regardless of which form is used.
The ONLY way to guarantee not having an 'unwanted pregnancy' is abstinence from what causes pregnancy. 100% of the time, safe, inexpensive, fool proof. Works. And that is the 'choice' that few offer those who do not want a baby ... now or whenever...
Any abortion for rape or incest murders the most innocent of the three involved. It gives the death penalty for the crime of the father. The child is innocent. Completely innocent. The child did not ask to be conceived! And any adult/teen that was born out of wedlock, kept or placed for adoption will tell you that they would NOT prefer to have been aborted!
Long ago, the US Supreme Court also said that slaves were not human and had no rights other than the ones the owner gave them... Dred Scot Decision. And IT was an abominable decision, too. That decision was overturned, eventually.
"Roe" and "Doe" both want the US Supreme Court to admit that they were also in error long ago.

January 22, 1973.
I have been following Terri Schindler Schiavo for a very long time, praying for her life, praying for a change of heart of all those who want to kill her by starvation, simply because she has brain damage. I have written many words on this wonderful world of internet on different yahoo groups, catholic groups, etc, telling people that this woman is alive and has a right to live until God Himself calls her home.
I have followed in the news, and at her family's website, on tv and on the internet. I have emailed all I know, and asked them to email all that they know. I have watched and wondered what is going on, and why someone wants her dead so badly. I begged Gov Jeb Bush to intervene in emails with everyone when that tube was going to be removed, and again after. I was one of many.
Today, I spent more time at Terri's website and found a link to a LIFE CD that has been released, and is being done by WAYNE GALLEY originally from Australia, who saw videos of Terri on the news and suddenly realized he had to help.
He wrote songs, and played them at her 41st birthday party this past December. You can hear them by going to Terri's website, and on the right side of the page, scroll down to where it says LISTEN TO WAYNE GALLEY AND CHERYL FORD, RN on LINDA KENNEDY'S RADIO SHOW. The segways are his songs. When you click on that CD link on the website, it brings you to the picture of the CD, and if you scroll down further, there are also the first two songs there that you can download to hear.
The titles are:
I AM ALIVE (TERRI'S SONG)
I HAVE A RIGHT TO LIVE
CELEBRATION OF LIFE
I WANT TO FLY HOME
The money for this CD goes to help Terri's fight. They are moving, heart wrenching, honest.
So many times it seems that when we must say good bye to one person, He gives us a new one to love. Not long before my mother called to tell me of my newest niece's arrival, I picked up the paper at work and found that a woman I had worked with for a long time had passed away. Just a matter of minutes, it seems.
So many of the nurses and nursing assistants I used to work with have left us already, and I can't honor them all by name here. But today, I can say good-bye for now to
Lucy Heimmerman, RN, of St Elizabeth Hospital.
I worked with Lucy, though on a different shift on a couple of the favorite units where I spent a great deal of my nursing career at the hospital.
Her smile is contagious, and something that I will never forget. Her quick ways. She was as pretty on the inside as she was on the outside. And she was a good nurse.
God bless you, Lucy, and may you rest in Him for Eternity.
To your family, I pray Numbers 6:24-26 today
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.
And now, for all of my former co-workers and Lucy,
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
May all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Barbara Weller on Terri Schindler Schiavo
I received this email today, too late to hear the program live. When one reads Barbara Weller's statement on the family website, it is very powerful, and describes Terri alert and NOT dying or 'vegetative' at all. When you HEAR her say it, it is even more compelling.
On Friday - January 21 - The Path aired a broadcast of Terri Schiavo's case featuring an interview with Barbara Weller of the Gibbs Law Firm. Gibbs Law is currently representing the parents and siblings of Terri Schiavo in their latest bid to remove Terri's estranged husband as her guardian.
The Path (part of the CDR Radio Network) will air this interview at 5.00 pm today. You can listen live on http://www.thepath.fm/. Additionally, an archive of the broadcast will be made available immediately following on
YOU CAN HEAR THE PROGRAM BY CLICKING ON THE DATE.
Also, on Sunday - January 23 - ABC Action News in Tampa, Florida will air a segment regarding Terri's legal case in the 11.00am hour. This segment is to feature interviews with both Ms. Weller and George Felos, the attorney representing Terri's husband and guardian.
ABC Action News is on the web on http://www.abcactionnews.com/ and typically keeps an extensive video archive of Terri's story available online. Those outside of the Tampa Bay area may wish to check late on Sunday for video links.

Welcome to our world, Bridget Claire!
Babies are a precious gift! Bridget Claire is a beautiful Irish name, for sure.
And a healthy 8 # 8 ounces.
You have a new little cousin to chase who is going to make 'his' debut in April, as the two of you grow together, so you are not the YOUNGEST family member, but the newest.
Welcome to the family, where we have waited patiently to have you make your official entrance, though we loved you while you were still hidden!
You will be spoiled by big brothers and sister, I am sure!
Andrew, Jack, Nora, Ben, and David are probably all taking turns holding their
newest family member.
Congratulations to Mom and Dad, also. Glad that all went well!

St. Louis archbishop leads pro-lifers into "battle against Satan"
St. Louis, Jan. 18 (LifesiteNews.com/CWN)
Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis, after spending a busy 2004 setting the pace for episcopal pro-life leadership, appears set to continue his strong efforts on behalf of the sacredness of life in this new year. This past Saturday, Archbishop Burke led a congregation of 400 Catholics to the sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in downtown St. Louis.
In his homily at the cathedral Mass before the walk, Archbishop Burke described the pro-life fight as "a battle against Satan and his cohorts." He said, "We pray for the parents who are contemplating the betrayal of their parenthood through abortion."
The group left the cathedral and walked five blocks to the Planned Parenthood facility while being led in the Rosary by the archbishop, whose voice could be heard over the walkie-talkies carried by organizers. The group stayed for about 10-15 minutes and prayed without incident.
According to the local president of Planned Parenthood, Paula Gianino, the St. Louis clinic committed about 6,000 abortions last year. Gianino said that next week a group of clergy (of unspecified denominations) will be present to escort women into the facility. "It will show our patients that many churches and many clergy are supportive of a woman's reproductive rights and privacy," Gianino said.
In the United States, much public pro-life activity occurs around the January 22 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. In dioceses around the country, many US bishops ask parish priests to preach homilies on the sanctity of life. For most of the last year, Archbishop Burke however, has set a high standard for bishops' pro-life commitment with his strong statement that pro-abortion presidential candidate John Kerry, a Catholic, would not be welcome to receive Communion in his archdiocese.
During his ad limina visit to Rome, the St. Louis archbishop said that the fight against unrepentant pro-abortion politicians receiving Communion must not end with the end of the election campaign. He said, "These are questions that are at the very foundation of the life of our country. We just simply have to continue to address them."

The Vatican announced this afternoon that Archbishop Basile Georges Casmoussa had been kidnapped and that "The Holy See deplores in the firmest way such a terrorist act."
Prayers for this man, and for many in that country are needed.
Lord, have Mercy!
