This is what liberalism does to a society. Planned Abortion Parenthood in high schools. The earlier they can get those abortions started the better! 

Don’t think for a second that they won’t offer them. AND they don’t have to get parental consent.

Hey! They could be coming to a high school near you!

Planned Parenthood Sets Up Shop At Roosevelt High To Reduce Teen Pregnancies

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Planned Parenthood and the Los Angeles Unified School District have teamed up in an unusual collaboration to reduce the number of unplanned teen pregnancies at Roosevelt High School.

Students can visit the on-campus health clinic to get free birth control, pregnancy tests, counseling and screening for sexually transmitted diseases – the first program of its kind in the country, according to the Los Angeles Times.

And yes Virginia, the House Abortion of a Bill does have funding for abortions. It’s wrapped up in a money laundering scheme.

Obamacare Does Too Fund Abortions With Tax Dollars (and a Spiffy Money-Laundering Scheme)

Reprinted from Erick Erickson’s post at RedState.

I just got this from Doug over at National Right to Life. Please do read it ASAP:

Speaker Pelosi, Henry Waxman, and the White House are engaged in peddling another phony compromise. This is all theater. The “negotiations” are scripted ad phony. The language being circulated, and loosely associated with Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D-In.), does not mitigate either of the abortion-subsidy provisions contained in H.R. 3962. This language is intended only to wrap the pro-abortion provisions in additional layers of concealment. The latest version of the Democrats’ abortion compromise being circulated contains a money-laundering scheme that is truly laughable. Some of the people involved in this enterprise apparently think that their constituents are simpletons.

Here’s a few on the stem cell issue:

Using Embryos … Without Limit?

by Charles Krauthammer

WASHINGTON — Last week, the White House invited me to a signing ceremony overturning the Bush (43) executive order on stem cell research. I assume this was because I have long argued in these columns and during my five years on the President’s Council on Bioethics that, contrary to the Bush policy, federal funding should be extended to research on embryonic stem cell lines derived from discarded embryos in fertility clinics.

I declined to attend. Once you show your face at these things you become a tacit endorser of whatever they spring. My caution was vindicated.

Science Without Limits

by Ken Connor

On Monday President Obama issued an executive order, removing the restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) instituted by former-President Bush.  ESCR has provoked great controversy because it necessarily involves the destruction of nascent human life.  Two alternative methods of stem cell research have seen great success and are free from ethical controversy, but Obama chose to ignore both ethics and pragmatism in his misguided commitment to support embryonic stem cell research with taxpayer money.

Obama’s Stem Cell Disgrace

by Guy Benson

With a great deal of fanfare, President Obama signed an executive order on stem cell research last week. The most controversial element of his new directive is a short, harmless-looking clause that you probably haven’t heard about. People on all sides of the stem cell controversy should call this particular decision what it is: A disgrace.

Obama’s Embryonic Stem Cell OK Can Kill
By Michael Reagan

What President Obama did when he reversed President Bush’s executive order banning embryonic stem cell research was based not on solid science, but his desire to cater to the anti-life, pro-abortion forces and their media allies who helped elect him.

In doing this, he created the potential for an outbreak of potentially fatal cancerous tumors caused by the therapeutic use of embryonic stem cells.

Moreover, he killed another Bush presidential order that funded some of the most promising research on the creation of embryonic-like stem cells from harmless but potent adult stem cells.

I am not in favor of this at all. There are several reasons why:

1. It’s government sanctioned abortion.

2. It’s immoral.

3. It doesn’t work.

4. If it was a viable science, private investors would have been all over this a long time ago.

On embryonic stem cells:

Stem Cells Are Not Just About Science

by Steve Chapman

Not many of us would want the federal government to leave military procurement to defense contractors, Medicare reimbursement to doctors or banking regulation to Citigroup. But President Obama says when it comes to allocating federal funds for scientific studies, we should defer to scientists.

That assertion came in reference to research on the use of embryonic stem cells to find treatments for various diseases. Obama announced that he was junking President Bush’s rules, which limited federal funding to research using embryonic stem cell lines that existed before August 2001.

Journey To Destruction

by Cal Thomas

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” said Confucius. But a journey of whatever length presumes one has a destination in mind. With President Obama’s executive order authorizing expanded federal funding for research using stem cells, produced from the destruction of human embryos, the destination will be left up to scientists, as will any “speed controls.” The sky, or in this case the depths, will be the limit.

In the classical style of a brilliant politician, President Obama sought to invoke an ethical standard for his decision, while simultaneously denying a standard that might restrain scientists from going too far. He said that as a “person of faith,” he believes “we are called to care for each other and work to ease human suffering. I believe we have been given the capacity and will to pursue this research — and the humanity and conscience to do so responsibly.”

Absolutely Horrific, Disgusting Images

by Alicia Colon

Did the header get your attention? If you can look at these images and feel something then congratulations-there’s hope for you. Unfortunately many Americans will turn away and refuse to consider the deaths of these human beings as anything but political propaganda.

Look carefully at image 5, 6 and 10 and and tell yourself that it’s a good thing for our society to allow the killing of perfect human beings who have become inconvenient to their mothers. Over 4000 innocents are murdered every day because America refuses to look at the truth. The truth is much more sinister than the argument that it’s a woman’s right to control the reproductive process. It comes back to that famous line uttered by Jack Nicholson in “A Few Good Men”.  America “can’t handle the truth.” It’s too ugly and too many Americans have lost the ability to think deeply about important issues.

I know I said I wouldn’t cuss, but sometimes there just needs to be some righteous indignation with an f-bomb, or three.

Abortion. This is the face of abortion. Look at the images and tell me that this is still a fucking choice. You people that think abortion is nothing but a woman’s choice need to pay attention. This isn’t a choice. It’s a defenseless human being that is being murdered. Murdered in the name of choice. Fuck you.

More lies from Obama. There is no consensus for embryonic stem cell research. It has already been proven that adult stem cells are much better and have less risk associated with them. Plus, adult stem cells are cheaper to obtain and use. Oh, and did Obama mention the fact that embryonic stem cells cause cancer at a huge rate compared to adult stem cells, or even those from the placenta? Did he also mention that using embryonic stem cells kills babies? Whoops.

The Orwellian Presidential Bully Pulpit

by David Limbaugh

Does the following statement from Melody C. Barnes, director of President Barack Obama’s Domestic Policy Council, strike you as a) patronizing or b) Orwellian? “The president believes that it’s particularly important to sign this (presidential memorandum authorizing federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research) so that we can put science and technology back at the heart of pursuing a broad range of national goals.”

Your answer should be both a and b, especially when considered in conjunction with another presidential memorandum “aimed at insulating scientific decisions across the federal government from political influence.”

The president brazenly sermonizes against scientifically challenged conservatives while triggering federal funding of research that is scientifically controversial and preparing to impose cap and trade penalties on corporate America in deference to global warming junk science.

On Abortion:

Roe Is Only the Beginning

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

I have always frankly admitted that abortion is murder, the extermination of the powerless by the powerful. Liberals for the most part have shrunk from facing the ethical consequences of their embrace of abortion, which results in the annihilation of concrete individuals and not just clumps of insensate tissue.

– Camille Paglia

If given the choice, I always prefer to debate atheists, such as Camille Paglia, on the abortion issue. The arguments are simple, direct and uncomplicated by walls of denial.

An atheist’s defense of abortion, as opposed to say, first degree murder for money, rests upon a single characteristic of the unborn child: location. In this view, we accept the reality of our murdering the “unwanted” child for our own convenience, simply because the child requires his mother’s womb to continue living. In the atheist’s mind, this matter of utter dependence confers the right to kill without provocation.

Abortion: The Unspoken Jihad

By Matt Spivey

In Arabic, the word “jihad” means “inner struggle,” and for those involved in one particular battle, there is no simple answer and varying perspectives cause, in many cases, violent reactions and repercussions. That word has come to signify the murder of innocence and the demolition of security in a time of worldwide uncertainty. The death toll keeps rising as years keep passing, and fighting in this war guarantees earning the label of “radical,” “extremist,” or “fanatic.” Yet those who do keep fighting are actually trying to save lives. With the 36th year of Roe v. Wade passing today, the war rages on.

Sarah Palin was the only candidate in the 2008 election to take a truly vocal stance in her pro-life values, and as we all have learned, she lives what she believes. For her efforts in promoting life and keeping sacred every human, no matter how small, she received the above adjectives from liberals as famous as Michael Moore, who called her “an extremist,” to the most unimportant of bloggers who called her “one of those radical Christians” and a “flaky fanatic.” And it’s not just the big-mouth blowhards who took the potshots. Even widely read publications like Newsweek have said her “pro-life extremism is…ethically flawed.” The Huffington Post called her “the most extremist” candidate we have seen in decades, if ever. And NARAL unsurprisingly released headlines describing her as “radically pro-life.” But perhaps Palin’s “pro-life fanaticism” was masquerading as another term her opponents misconstrued — common sense.
