Stem Cell Cures

I really encourage you all to visit a website that I just discovered. It is It is a great site that reveals the truth: Great progress is being made with adult stem cells. Adult stems cells come from umbilical cord blood, deciduous teeth, and sometimes even the patients own body. None of these treatments require the killing of a human embryo. The kinds of diseases cured include cancers and multiple sclerosis. The complete treatment list is quite extensive. It is so encouraging to read about these treatments.

Fair Tax Widget

I haven't mentioned the Fair Tax in a while. I still think it is a great idea. I encourage you to try out my new widget to the right. It calculates your tax burden now versus the proposed Fair Tax.

I enjoyed these quotes form around the web.

Tammy Drennan from Education Conversation
Here’s a discovery that would really rock our country: Government involvement in education is linked to intellectual mediocrity, moral and cultural decay, destruction of community, and loss of liberty.

Nancy Pelosi in response to "Where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?"
"Are you serious? Are you serious?" This answer was followed up by asking another reporter for a question. You should read this Walter Williams article for more on this topic.

Thomas Sowell
If politicians stopped meddling with things they don't understand, there would be a more drastic reduction in the size of government than anyone in either party advocates.

Even if this country can survive intact and unharmed after the Obama administration-- or, heaven help us, two terms of Obama-- the gullibility that led to his being elected in the first place will still be there for some other slick demagogue to come along and get the power to put the American way of life, and even our physical safety, at risk again.

More Pro-life Thoughts

Sad and Disgusting
There was much rejoicing among pro-lifers in the DFW area when Aaron's Women's Health Center closed in June of 2008. It was the only late term abortion facility in the area. We were so glad God answered prayers and closed the doors.

Now in a sad and disgusting turn of events, another late term abortion facility has opened. An ordained Baptist minister turned Unitarian has opened an abortion facility in Dallas that will abort babies as far as 24 weeks along. You can click the link and watch Dr. Curtis Boyd admit to killing saying he prays that God will receive the unborn spirit with love. How this man can claim to know God is beyond me!

A 13th Victim
The killing of 12 people and the wounding of 30 others at Fort Hood is a sad tragedy on many counts. Amid all the death our view of life is brought out. According to LifeSiteNews, he will stand trial in military court and face the death penalty. Instead of being tried for 12 murders, it is likely that he will be tried for 13. He is being tried under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. This set of laws has a Unborn Victims of Violence Act. One of the women Hassan killed was pregnant woman. So he should (morally and under these laws) be tried for 13 murders.

It is strange to me that we have such variation in the respect for life in this country. Abortion is OK, but if you're in the military murdering an unborn baby is murder.

I am glad that the life of this baby will be given the respect of a murder trial. I am sad that the rest of the country doesn't view the baby as a live person.

Stupak Amendment Pro-life?
Caffeinated Thoughts has a good article about the Stupak Amendment. He points out that the amendment isn't as pro-life as many believe it to be. Here are two examples he gives:
Extends funding for Planned Parenthood.
Exempts withholding food and water as part of the definition of assisted suicide or mercy killing.
You should really go read the whole thing.

Fall Color?

The kids and I went out yesterday and gathered the "best" leaves in our neighborhood. The kids made crayon rubbings while I scanned them in. The are not as beautiful as what you would see in Maine or Michigan, but we had a great time.

Pro-life Ramblings

Health Care
I don't know whether to be happy or sad that the Stupak amendment passed with the health care bill. Of course, I don't want my money spent on abortions. Yet now I fear that the Blue Dogs will have a reason to vote for this pile of bull corn. The Stupak amendment doesn't get rid of the 111 new bureaucracies. It doesn't get rid of the huge tax burden that will arise. It doesn't get rid of the giant debt this will give to our children.

40 Days for Life
The number of confirmed babies saved from abortion during this 40 Days for Life is 583. Praise God for these precious lives!

Bryan/College Station Planned Parenthood Director Changes Sides
After watching an abortion via ultrasound, the director of the Planned Parenthood in Bryan, TX had a change of heart. Abby Johnson quit her job. She even began to pray outside the PP with 40 Days for Life. Before this soul-changing experience, Ms. Johnson worked for PP for 8 years. Recently she started feeling disillusioned when her bosses started demanding more abortions because they are lucrative and these are hard economic times. Then the ultrasound video pierced her heart. Praise God for people that are willing to change and are bold enough to tell the nation why!

This cartoon from Townhall made me mad. Social issues are not kiddie issues! I will not back any candidate that is a fiscal conservative but is pro-abortion or pro-gay marriage.

This one made me sad. It shows the pain of abortion, the trampling of parental rights, and the craziness of Planned Parenthood.
