A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Planned Parenthood shocked: Catholics act like Catholics!

WARNING: Anyone not familiar with toddler temper tantrums may want to skip this story.

Washington, DC ( -- The president of Planned Parenthood has a bone to pick with the nation's Catholic bishops: she is upset they would urge Catholics to oppose the House health care reform bill because it includes abortion funding. (How dare they act on their religious convictions! The nerve!) Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood essentially admits that abortion funding is in the bill. (And the sun rises in the east.)

In two emails to supporters in recent days, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards admits that the bills in Congress all contain taxpayer funding of abortions.

"Because of relentless pressure from dedicated supporters like you, every version of the bills out there right now is free of the dangerous amendments anti-choice members of Congress tried to attach to health care reform," she says. "We've worked closely with pro-choice lawmakers to defeat dozens of proposed amendments." (Hmm. Doesn't this directly contradict what Pelosi & Co. have been saying? Naw, politicians wouldn't lie, would they?)

She said as many as 220,000 abortion advocates wrote to Congress based on action alerts in its emails urging for abortion funding to remain in the bills. Congressional offices also received another 18,000 phone calls from the Planned Parenthood system for abortion funding.

However, after learning that the nation's Catholics bishops are making good on their promise to wage an all-out campaign against the bills because they fund abortions, Richards is hopping mad.

"A few days ago, it felt as if we were holding strong in achieving health care reform" with abortion funding, she wrote in a follow-up email, "and then I received a copy of a memo that the Catholic bishops sent to their congregations."

"As I write this, the bishops have asked all the Catholics in the country to contact their legislators, asking them to alter current health care legislation to include anti-choice amendments. The bishops have inserted letters into church bulletins and asked priests to include their call to action in their sermons — and even in their prayers — during Sunday services," she complains. (Wah! This has the same tone as one of my daughter's hissyfits. She's all of two by the way.)

"It's clear that every group opposed to a woman's right to choose is pulling out all the stops this week to bring all the progress we've made on health care reform to a grinding halt," she continued.

Richards says the results "could be devastating to everyone who" is a Planned Parenthood customer. "Once again, we urgently need your help."

Her letter even encourages Catholics to defy the Church's pro-life teachings. (Yep, why worry about a little thing like eternity in Hell when the future of publicly funded babykilling is in jeopardy?)

"If you're Catholic and you disagree with the bishops, please let your legislators know when you send your message. Your voice as a pro-choice Catholic needs to be heard NOW," she says.

In an extraordinary call to Catholics to prevent health care reform from being derailed by the abortion lobby, the United Sates Conference of Catholic Bishops has sent bulletin inserts to almost 19,000 Catholic churches across the country. (It was extraordinary, I've not seen anything like it in 57 years.)

"Health care reform should be about saving lives, not destroying them," the insert states. It urges readers to contact congressional leaders so they support efforts to "incorporate longstanding policies against abortion funding and in favor of conscience rights" in health reform legislation.

"If these serious concerns are not addressed, the final bill should be opposed," it adds. (I sent my email in, wonder if I've made a list of potential rightwing extremists by doing that?)

The first time in years the USCCB does something good

I guess this lady isn't worried about Hell..I am though...I've done my part to oppose Obamacare

Teresa said...

Well, better late than never, that the U.S. Bishops are finally standing up for our most precious unborn children. They are standing up against this bill in a most unprecedented way, along with encouraging catholics to contact their politicians to vote against the health care bill if it still contains funding for abortions. For the first time in awhile, I am proud of the Bishops. Thanks for posting this article.

Joe, amen to that. I just worry about doing enough.

Teresa, like yourself I'm not ashamed of the bishops right now. Who knows, maybe it's the start of a trend?

Yeah...they need help....cry me a river. (eye roll) But who is there to help the innocent children they are slaughtering in the name of money?

I've been so busy in the last few days I haven't had time to contact my representatives. I'll do that today.

If Washington thinks they can ignore the Catholics, they have another thing coming.
