Obama versus Life Values

“Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being”~~ Pope Piux XII, 1846

In July of 2007 Barack H. Obama made the statement, “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing that I’d do.” Well it’s well past his 100 days and has yet to pass. The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) was first introduced in late 1989. Clinton supported the bill in 1993 however it was held up due to Senator Carol Moseley (D-IL) didn’t feel it was “extreme enough.” [emphasis mine] It wasn’t until the Republican’s took control of Congress in 1994 that the bill stalled.

With Obama’s health care reform that was passed last year, according to Fred Lucas:

President Barack Obama has not yet decided whether to go forward with a proposed regulation under the health care law he signed last year that would force Catholic individuals and instutions to act against the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Lucas continues that as of August of this year that Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius

proposed a regulation–that would take affect next fall–that would require all health care plans to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including abortifacients. The proposed regulation includes a very narrow religious exemption that does not cover individual Catholics, or Catholic universities, hospitals or charitable institutions.

As a Catholic and as a Registered Nurse, who is employed in a Catholic Hospital. I find this very troubling. I feel that this is another attempt of the Obama administration’s attempt to force yet another aspect of his unborn desire to rule the world.”…to control the world.

The law’s premise would force Catholic’s or anyone who believes that life begins at conception to participate in assisting with abortions or performing them. A nurse could potentially succumb under threats of being reprimanded or worse – fired. The law would include require Catholic hospitals to ALSO perform sterilization procedures as well, which according to the Catholic Church, is against God’s teaching.
As a nurse, like physicians, we take an oath upon graduating. The Nightingale Pledge was written by by Lystra Gretter, an instructor of nursing at the old Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, it was first used by its graduating class in the spring of 1893. It is an adaptation of the Hippocratic Oath taken by physicians. The oath is as follows:

“I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician, in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.”

Like many of the nurses I work with we take this oath seriously and work tirelessly giving care to aid in restoring health. We provide comfort to those who are at the end of their life as we know it here on earth.

Obama is clearly attempting to eradicate the morals of this country, which have for several years been seriously declining. He not only wants to destroy our culture, economically and morally, but also through our families, feels it is his duty to dictate our morals and make us act outside of what we hold dear: our Faith. Obama, like the rest of us will stand before God one day and like the rest of us will have to atone for his many transgressions. He had better hope that God is in a good mood that day!

It is crucial that FOCA does not become the law of the land. As a nation founded upon by Judeo-Christian beliefs we must stand firm with the founders of this nation and protect life, all life.

Kentucky’s Bill Johnson:DUTY-HONOR-COUNTRY

“We are at a turning point in the history of our nation. Jobs are moving offshore, the economy is weak, taxes are increasing, and prosperity is fading. Our elected officials offer expanded government, more spending, and industry takeovers as the solution. Socialism will destroy our nation. “I am not a politician. I am a concerned citizen, military veteran, and businessman who believes it is time for new leadership in Washington. I want to be a voice for concerned citizens across the Bluegrass State who have ‘had enough’ of politicians violating our trust. As a Ronald Reagan Republican, I support:”
*Information Preparing Voters for Kentucky’s May 18, 2010 Primary Election
*Balanced Budgets and Paying off the Debt
*Cutting Marginal Tax Rates to Grow the Economy
*A Strong ‘Peace Through Strength’ Military
2nd Amendment Gun Rights and Ownership
*Personhood and Constitutional Rights for Unborn
*One Man and One Woman Marriage Amendment
*Sending Illegal Immigrants Home
*Coal, Oil, and Natural Gas Energy Use
*Building Nuclear Power Plants
*12 Year Term Limits For Senators

These words are what has drawn me to support Bill Johnson of Kentucky for the May primary to determine who will go forward to November to seek the nomination to fill the seat of retiring Senator Jim Bunning. We already have problems in Washington with the elitist and those who wish only to serve in order to further a political career at the expense of the tax payers. To learn more about one such candidates; Trey Grayson, I invite you to visit ” He’s a Republican in Name only ” [RINO]
After the terrorist attacks we endured on September 11, 2001, the Patriot Act was introduced. Many have attacked Johnson on his support of this legislation. Bill feels and I quote,

“The Patriot act simply improved information sharing. It gave law enforcement the same tools that have been used in the past to find drug dealers and organized crime leaders. I am amazed that when the same tools are used to find terrorist, everyone gets all upset. Just another example of Dr. Paul being weak on the defense of our nation.”

Rand Paul’s father wrote this article Reconsidering the Patriot Act. One would question if the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…hence Rand Paul
Another issue that I find concern regarding the Paul campaign is his stance on abortion and the morning after pill. I encourage you to read this; Rand Paul’s Position on the Morning After Pill and Partial Birth Abortion .
The Tea Party Movement which stands for “taxed enough already” is about having less taxes and less government in our lives… I too, support the fair tax and particularly agree with Johnson on his view as stated in this video.

I encourage all of you to get involved and support your candidate. Monetary donations of any denomination are always appreciated so I invite to click on the donate now tab and donate to send Bill Johnson to DC.

…Coakley’s Religious Prejudices…

Martha Coakley let me first and foremost remind you that we are Americans, if you remember the basis on which this country was founded on you should know that we have freedom of religion! That being said, I appalled at the audacity you displayed by saying that Catholic Doctors and nurses should not work the ER due to our faith, a faith that respects life at the moment of conception to the moment the last breath is expelled. Our profession is one that is invested into healing, providing comfort. How can you support the killing of an unborn child? For every aborted fetus could be the person that found a cure for cancer, Alzheimer’s and numerous other illnesses that afflict us. Who are you and the many like you that feel that you have the “right” to do God’s work. God makes the ultimate decisions on when we are called home to rest in his glory.

Ps 139:16 “Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
