Parental Rights Undermined by Homosexual Agenda

December 9, 2011

From Alliance Defense Fund blog:

Should our parental rights to raise our children be trumped by our children’s sexual choices—those which are championed by radical groups such as the ACLU (complaining that abstinence programs do not work because “they leave teens in the dark about how to protect themselves from unintended pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), if and when teens choose to become sexually active”)?

Obama Plans to Push LGBT Rights Across the Globe

December 8, 2011

From our friends at the Family Research Council:

The Obama administration put a bow on its efforts to radicalize other countries on the issue of homosexuality. In their observance of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear where their “human rights” priorities lie. In keeping with the anniversary, the White House issued a “Presidential Memorandum” directing “all agencies engaged abroad” to promote the homosexual and transgender agenda.

Bills Introduced to Stop Sex Trafficking at Massage Parlors in PA

December 5, 2011
From PA Independent:
Bipartisan state House and Senate proposals, House Bill 235 and Senate Bill 338, would require rest-stops, bars, motels, welcome areas, strip clubs, massage parlors and other businesses to post an 8 ½-inch-by-11-inch sign with a 28-point font size that reads:
“If you or someone you know is being forced to engage in any activity and cannot leave — whether it is commercial sex, housework, farm work or any other activity — call the National Human Trafficking Hotline.” The number is 1-888-373-7888.
Lawmakers want these proposals to put a dent in local prostitution, which is prominent at local massage parlors, said state Rep. Paul Clymer, R-Bucks, who is sponsoring HB 235.

PA Coalition Against Domestic Violence Absurdly Wrong on SB 732

September 29, 2011

Today, the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV) sent a memorandum to members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, encouraging them to vote against Senate Bill 732, a bill that would simply apply the same health and safety standards to abortion clinics that have applied to all outpatient surgical facilities for decades.

SB 732 was drafted in direct response to the “House of Horrors” situation uncovered at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s abortion clinic in West Philadelphia. In fact, the report of the Grand Jury convened by the Philadelphia District Attorney specifically calls for such equivalent regulation of abortion clinics and other surgical facilities. It’s simply common sense.

However, not only does common sense escape PCADV’s Executive Director, Peg Dierkers (the author of the memo), but so too do the facts. Throughout the memo, Ms. Dierkers says that SB 732 “would regulate Pennsylvania family planning clinics as Ambulatory Surgical Facilities.” Wrong. SB 732 only applies to abortion clinics that do surgical abortions after 9 weeks gestation (typically when general anesthesia may be used). The bill is not aimed at “family planning clinics”; in fact, such clinics are not mentioned in the bill.

Incredibly, the word “abortion” is not mentioned in Ms. Dierker’s memo! That’s right. In a several-hundred word memo written in opposition to a bill to regulate abortion clinics, the word “abortion” does not even appear once! Why?

I contend it’s because it really doesn’t make any sense for an organization that fights domestic violence to also be fighting a bill that protects women from unscrupulous abortionists. And so, extreme verbal gymnastics were employed, along with blatant factual misstatements, to try and justify PCADV’s incongruous position on SB 732.

Severe violence, including murder, was perpetrated against women and babies for decades at the Gosnell clinic. Without question, some of those women were at the clinic under duress, forced there by men seeking to erase the life they helped create. I’ve seen men strong-arming their girlfriend, wife or daughter into an abortion clinic, participating in what truly is the ultimate act of domestic violence, the taking of life in what should be the safest place on earth: the mother’s womb.

PCADV would do well to not only support SB 732, but to rethink its stand on abortion altogether.

Strong Preference Given to Pro-Abortion Groups for Anti-Sex Trafficking Grants

September 12, 2011

U.S. Health officials are prioritizing abortion-friendly clinics over pro-life and religious facilities in handing out grants to help sex trafficking victims.

Planned Parenthood clinics, which will likely benefit significantly from the grant prioritization, have been found by undercover sting operations to actually aid investigators posing as sex traffickers of young foreign girls.
