Spokane Falls Community College Claims Pro-life Speech Against Washington Law; McKenna's Office to Defend College

Not to be believed, but yes, SFCC "threatened Beth Sheeran and members of a Christian student group with disciplinary measures, including expulsion, if they chose to hold a pro-life event on campus to share information with other students because the message was 'discriminatory' and did not include a pro-abortion viewpoint."

Read the whole story from the ADF who is representing the students in their law suit against SFCC.

Here's the offending flyer the pro-life students wanted posted in a display case.

What these pro-life students went through, not only with the school administration but with their faculty advisory is outrageous.

Not only were they told that their "pro-life display was 'offensive' and 'discriminatory,' they were also required to also present the opposite point of view during the event.

But here's another whopper, "Defendant McKenzie (Director of Student Funded Programs at the College) also told SFCF’s (Spokane Falls Christian Fellowship) president that Washington is a “pro-choice” state, so SFCF could not use state money for “non-pro-choice” speech events.

And it gets worse, Ms. Kurtz, a professor of English at the College and SFCF faculty advisor, told Ms. Sheeran and SFCF members that the pro-life event violated state law according to Wash. Admin. Code § 132Q-30-242. (Verified Complaint of Plaintiff: pp 10-11) She capped that information off with a lovely, “You don’t want to be expelled, do you?”

How did this woman get selected as faculty advisor to a pro-life group?!

According to the student newspaper The Communicator, the CCS (Community Colleges of Spokane) will be represented by Wash. State Attorney General's Office representative, Jerry Cartwright. Yep. That would be Rob "I will defend a woman's right to choose at every opportunity" McKenna's office.

A preliminary hearing has been set for April 29 at 3:00 p.m. at the Federal District Courthouse in Spokane. Sheeran will have the opportunity to present her case at the hearing.

I think I know some pro-lifers who are going to be paying a visit to SFCC in the near future.

Monroe Planned Parenthood Abortion Mill Closes

Read the story about it in the Everett Herald here.

Of course Herald "reporter" accepts PP line without asking any questions. Incompetent fools.

Photos from 2009 Everett Vigil to Planned Parenthood

Some great pictures from the Everett vigil and procession to Planned Parenthood were sent to me.

Here's some more of the Mass and the Knights of Columbus with Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Boycott List

UPDATE: Seattle Coffee Works has agreed to no longer support NARAL!
(We've removed our post commenting on their relationship with NARAL.)

You can read more about what happened here.

Thank you Seattle Coffee Works!!

For some time now we've wanted to start a Washington state boycott list for all the companies and organizations in the state that support abortion.

At the top if the list is Rick Steves the travel author and his Europe Through the Back Door series of books and videos. If you've ever heard any of his shows on Europe you get the feeling he really, really hates the Catholic Church. And, surprise, surprise he's also on the Honorary Council of NARAL Washington. Funny how those two things always go together. (How about sending any books and videos of his you might have back to him with a vow to never watch his PBS show or buy any of his products ever again.)

Consider this the start of the list. We'll add names as we get them and tag them under Boycott.

Head of Washington NARAL to Retire

One of Gov. Christine Gregoire's closest advisors, NARAL executive director Karen Cooper, is retiring this spring.

The governor and the head of the state's abortion lobby have worked together on many efforts to promote abortion here -- forcing pharmacists into the abortion business, reinterpreting state abortion law to allow for non-physicians to perform abortions, denying women any protections at all from the many abortionists who ply their ugly trade in our state, just to name a few.

Gregoire has long coddled the abortion industry as she needed their funding in her quest for power.

The number of children killed and tears cried by their mothers and fathers because of this duo is a number known only to God.
