Largest Abortion Provider Backing Presidential Candidate Barack Obama Admits Infants Born Alive During Abortions Left to Die: 'It Does Happen'

Largest Abortion Provider Backing Presidential Candidate Barack Obama Admits Infants Born Alive During Abortion are Left to Die

NJ Planned Parenthood Nurse: "It Does Happen."
MEDIA ADVISORY, October 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- On October 30, 2008, Students for Life of America (SFLA) released undercover video footage recently taken of a nurse at a NJ Planned Parenthood facility in Freehold, NJ describing how an abortion would be performed on a 22 week old unborn child to a pregnant woman. In the footage, the Planned Parenthood nurse describes to the pregnant woman that the abortion procedure would involve inducing labor and delivering the baby , and after the woman asks if the baby can be born alive, the nurse admits that "it does happen, but it wouldn't be able to survive on its own so eventually the baby does die."

View the video:

This Planned Parenthood facility is part of a network of Title X clinics that receives millions in state and federal tax dollars. The SFLA video is shocking and of particular interest because Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, who has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood, claimed he voted against a bill when he was in the Illinois Senate that would have protected babies born alive during an abortion. During the October 15 Presidential debate, Senator Obama said he voted against the bill because it would have infringed on Roe v. Wade , claiming that such protections were already in place. The video taken from Students for Life of America includes an audio of Senator Obama speaking out against the bill in 2002 on the Illinois Senate floor.

Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life said that Congress passed the Federal version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in 2002 which was signed into law by President Bush. "Despite the passage of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, we learn through this video that even today, babies who are born alive in NJ during abortions are not treated with the care and respect entitled to them under the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, but instead left to die as confirmed by the Planned Parenthood nurse on the video," said Tasy. "The refusal to administer emergency care to these helpless infants is both cruel and inhumane and should not be tolerated in a civil society," said Tasy. A 2007 study published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology indicates that babies born alive during an abortion procedure is more commonplace than originally thought. The study reported that one baby in 30 survives an abortion attempt.

Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life of America Executive Director, remarked, "I was absolutely stunned when the Planned Parenthood nurse revealed that allowing a baby to die after being born alive is a common practice for abortionists. It begs the question of why a presidential candidate will not support basic human rights protections for babies born alive during an abortion procedure. This is outright infanticide and a candidate for President defends it!"

New Jersey Right to Life Executive Director Marie Tasy said that this video underscores the need for Congress and the NJ Legislature to ensure enforcement of existing laws and the implementation of additional safeguards to require abortion clinics involved in performing late term abortions to have emergency resuscitation equipment on the premises and personnel who are trained and qualified in how to administer emergency neonatal and resuscitation treatment to babies born alive during abortions.

She also said that New Jersey Right to Life joins with Students for Life of America to call on Senator Obama to reconsider his opposition to extend basic human rights to babies born alive during abortions as well as urge Congress to immediately defund and investigate Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider and recipient of over $300 million federal taxpayer dollars each year.

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
