Dino Comes out Swinging

I liked Dino Rossi's response to the Seattle Times' David Postman about Federal Judge Leighton's support of the First Amendment and a pharmacist's right to refuse to participate in acts which violate their conscience.

He got the basic facts of the debate correct and took an accurate and well deserved, rather than gratuituous, swipe at Gregoire for her "strong-armed approach." I'd actually describe it the way Seattle Archbishop Alex Brunett did earlier this year -- A society that denies individuals the right to act in accord with their conscience is a dictatorship of the most oppressive sort.

There are important details that got left out -- like the fact that she stacked the pharmacy board with abortion industry insiders, that some of the people advising and working for the pharmacy board and the WSPA are on the payroll of Plan B's manufacturer Barr Laboratories, and that pretty much everyone on the anti-conscience bandwagon was sympathetic to the abortion industry or its manufacturer.

He could have also pointed out that our Republican state attorney general Rob McKenna was AWOL on upholding the Constitution, and I believe to some degree had a hand in the rule that finally came down, but that's my job not Dino's.

It's also interesting to note that the plan the judge approved -- refuse and refer -- is the one that Planned Parenthood initially proposed as a compromise to the board of pharmacy.

All that got left out but short and sweet was probably smart.

Dino says he's not running on this issue. Fine. However, I would caution Dino and his advisors that the media, the Democrats and the abortion industry think that this issue and other "choice" issues are fair game and most likely believe they can use them to defeat Rossi in supposedly "pro-choice" Washington. He might not want to run on them but they will make him run on them, so he'd better be prepared to respond.

My advice -- When the topic comes up make her abortion industry connections and psychopathic support for the people performing the abortions, not the women in crisis pregnancies, an albatross around her neck. Most of her "accomplishments" have been in the area of encouraging more abortion to the detriment of women and their health.

People call themselves pro-choice because they don't like to think they are supporting abortion. You don't want to burst their bubble and make them feel bad about themselves. Remind them that a vote for Gregoire is a vote for abortion not choice.

Update on Planned Parenthood Libel

As reported on Life of the Party Planned Parenthood of Western Washington makes some pretty serious accusation against the 40 Days for Life Camapaign.

Michelle was able to get more information from the police on what acutally happened.

Planned Parenthood of Western Washington Accuses 40 Days Campaign of Threatening Violence

On September 27, 2007, the Everett Police Department seized a home-made incendiary device from the home of an anti-choice activist. Acting on an anonymous tip that an attack was planned on a local clinic, police obtained a search warrant for the activist's home. Along with the device, officers found radical anti-choice literature and information about an upcoming protest at our Everett clinic!

That's according to a fundraising letter Planned Parenthood WW sent out this week to their direct mail list. Michelle at Life of the Party and coordinator of the Everett 40 Days for Life Campaign wasn't contacted or questioned by the police. Why not?

It's possible that this was potential pro-choice violence to be directed against the peaceful pro-lifers participating in the 40 Days for Life Campaign. Planned Parenthood seems to know all about this event but the media and the 40 Days for Life Campaign doesn't. Is it possible the anonymous tipster tipped off PP at the same time they tipped off the police? Then PP twisted it around to make it sound like it was connected to 40 Days for Life in order to raise money.

We know the "pro-choice" movement has a long history of violence so I wouldn't put it past them.

We also know the incredible stress and pressure that many, if not most, of those working in the abortion industry are under. Is it possible one of them finally went over the edge? If that is the case I pray that this unfortunate event has enabled this person to get out from under the abortion industry's hold on them. I would also hope that Planned Parenthood hasn't used this person's sad story to enrich their own pocketbook.

Death and Taxes

Friday was day 38 of the 40 Days for Life Campaign. I looked tragedy in the face.

If you haven’t been out to pray at one of the four local locations please come out Sunday. If you aren’t the praying type you can just come see how your tax dollars are being used. You’ll meet lots of women with medical coupons from the state to pay for their abortions. You’ll meet lots of people who aren’t old enough to vote and could care less about politics. If you are so blessed you may look in to the eyes of a woman who decides choose life because you cared enough to be there while the State government and Planned Parenthood thought she should just be vacuumed out and sent back out on to the street.

Maybe you can talk to some of the women. Many of them are very open about their stories and why there are there. They tell you they have no choice.

Maybe you’ll gain some new insights into what’s happening in the state instead of mouthing propaganda about “keeping the government out of our personal lives.” I tried to talk one woman out of an abortion Friday but she said if you are white it is next to impossible to get any money and help from the state. She already has two kids and her little one needs all her attention and she’s stretched to the limit. So the state packs her off to the abortion clinic with a smile but promises in-state tution to children of illegal immigrants.

Maybe there, on the streets of the real world, you’ll start to realize how far the State of Washington is involved in the abortion industry and just how totally clueless are the sycophants of “choice.”

Will try to get back to blogging

I haven't been able to post much because of my involvement with the 40 Days for Life Campaign and other personal committments. I'm going to try and change that and start posting more. I've written a few things in the past month that I haven't had time to post but will try to get on the site today.
