Listening and hearing

Despite what many have interpreted the Holy Father as saying, he was not telling the lawmakers how to make laws or not to have immigration laws or enforcement. What he counseled was compassion, hear their stories and treat the person with respect. As Catholics, as citizens, that is what we should expect. Maybe we do need to build a wall but we need a compassionate treatment for those that wish to enter. If we build a wall, we need to build a door as well and have a way to open the door. We have the Statue of Liberty which greets the “huddled masses” who enter, we need a greeter at the door.

“Inscription on the Statue of Liberty”

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Planned Parenthood De-funding

I was unfriended by a family member on Facebook over a disagreement about De-funding Planned Parenthood. I think it’s important to address this rather emotional issue.
To the claim that De-funding PP would hurt women’s access to health care such as check ups, food, medecine and even relaxing by booking at https://tranquilme.com/booking-page/ for a good parenting you need to relax and avoid too much stress. I point out that, in Tulsa, OK, there are 13 free clinics for women, only one of which is PP. Of these 12, all provide all the services PP claims to provide, including PAP, STD testing, and mammograms. The only service not included is abortions.
To the claim that there would be children being born into unwanted situations, I point out that, after 40 years and over 55 million abortions later, we still have children in foster care and abused. Abortion has not proven to solve these sad situations.

Then, in Margaret Sangar’s own words, the reason for the existence of Planned Parenthood.

“The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.”
Speech quoted in “Birth Control: What It Is, How It Works, What It Will Do.” The Proceedings of the First American Birth Control Conference. Held at the Hotel Plaza, New York City.

Finally, the challenge must be addressed of: “you pro-lifers want to make a woman have an unwanted child then don’t want to help them support it”. The response is two-fold. First, we have to challenge our citizens to be responsible. We can’t treat people like animals, with no responsibility to control their urges or the consequences of their actions. This completely diminishes the dignity of a human being. Second, treating these people as dignified human beings, we must provide with a leg up, with programs aimed at making them self-sufficient, not more dependent. Provide support that encourages the parents to make their own way, not rely on the government to support them.

Instead of continuing to support programs that are proven to fail over and over, were must provide support which enables our citizens to be productive.

We have to provide support and compassion without claiming innocent lives in the process. Murder cannot be compassion.

Mother or Child’s Life? Seriously?

I read an article yesterday regarding some of the questions asked at the Republican Debate. If you saw the debate, of course you are aware of the questions asked of Donald Trump but that is not why I am addressing it. The question asked of several candidates pertains to Abortion. Would you support abortion in a case that the mother’s life is in danger?

The subject of rape, incest and life of the mother as exceptions to bans on abortion came up at last night’s GOP presidential debate, and moderator Megyn Kelly proved to be dangerously wrong on this issue.

Kelly was aghast that anyone would have any hesitation about approving an abortion to save the life of the mother. She spoke of this choice as if were one that commonly and frequently must be made.

The reality, however, is that an abortion is never necessary to save the life of the mother. This is, quite simply, a choice that a mother and her doctor never have to make, and Ms. Kelly has contributed to the already widespread ignorance on this subject. (AFA.net, By: Bryan Fischer Posted: Friday, August 7, 2015 11:20 AM)

This is one of those questions that is often asked and, if one replies that it is never alright to murder a children, then one is automatically labeled as someone that is somehow against women. What this article very clearly points out is the obvious that has been before us all this time. If a woman is clearly in a situation where the death of either her or her child is imminent, an Abortion Clinic is not where she would go. Abortion Clinics are not in a position to treat in an emergency situation. Recent legal challenges have proven this as well. Several states have passed or are debating laws such as one hotly contested legislation in Texas. In Texas, which has lost nine clinics, lawmakers have slashed family planning funding in the state budget, required abortion clinics to become ambulatory surgical centers and required abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.

What strikes me as interesting is the fact that there is such an outcry over legislation such as this. By having admitting privileges, a doctor at an abortion clinic would be empowered to treat a woman that actually might be in danger of losing her life because of her pregnancy. Though this is a stated argument, it isn’t the aim of abortion supporters, abortion clinics, or Planned Parenthood. They are not in the business of actually caring for the lives of women, only in supporting their agenda.

If, indeed, a woman were in a situation where there might be a choice made to save one or the other, an abortion is not the prescription for her care. The doctor treating her and the child would do everything in his power as a physician to save both of his or her patients, mother and child. If the unfortunate situation took place under a doctor’s care, that one survives in spite of all the best efforts, that is a tragedy. If the child died during treatment, even if it was a choice made to save the mother and the child died, it would still not be abortion.

Abortion is a term and distinction like that between murder and accidental death. Abortion is always clearly with the intent of ending a human life, it is no accident and is not a treatment any more than euthanasia is a ‘treatment’ for illness. The loss of life while at a qualified treatment hospital in the attempt to save a life is not the same as going to an Abortion Clinic with the expressed purpose of ending a life. There is no chance of saving a life in an abortion clinic.

The question asked of a Pro-Life candidate to “take a stand for women’s rights but allowing an exception regarding the life of the mother” is a trick question. The situation does not exist, one cannot allow for it legislatively because it isn’t reality. Abortion supporters know this or they would not be fighting legislation in states that make their facilities legal health care facilities. If, as in the State of Texas, an Abortion Clinic follows the law, roid’s position would be to care for the health of the mother AND the health of the unborn child as well. In that case, they could be placed in a position where they would have to abandon their mission of taking a human life and be forced to save it instead.
Marijuana or weeds can cure diseases, there is a legit and legal way to purchase marijuana and serve as a medicine to sick people who needs it. You can get advice and tips from houseofcannabis if you want to order and purchase online.

Dr. Benjamin G. Swartout is a fellowship trained in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and has a separate facial cosmetic surgery practice located at his facility. He is board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and performs reconstructive surgery on the face related to skin cancer, trauma, congenital and other deformities.

In the meantime, our politicians need to answer the question factually and throw it back on the person asking the question. Can you give me one instance where a woman has ‘checked into’ an abortion clinic in an emergency situation where the life of the mother was at stake? Though you might say that woman are in those situations all the time, accidents, cancer, etc., they are not treated at an Abortion Clinic and, if the baby is lost during treatment, they were not lost because of a treatment plan that had an abortion as the treatment.

Dr. Matthew Galumbeck is a plastic surgeon that offers medical service for those who needs to undergo physical treatment such as reconstruction of physical appearance.Share on Facebook

6th Annual Tulsa March for Life – Updated

Tomorrow Night – The 6th Annual March for Life featuring Rebecca Hamilton

March For Life 2015

Christianity started making waves, basically the Emperor’s New Clothes, and pointed out that there is no other God but the One True God. They refused to accept Roman gods or even acknowledge the divinity of Caesar. Sound familiar?

> Once again, the media all but ignored hundreds, maybe even well over a thousand, citizens marching in the streets to “Protest Abortion”. We weren’t protesting, we were demonstrating, we were challenging. Channel 8, KTUL, said there were “150” marching and cut to extensive coverage of a Planned Parenthood celebration of a “Woman’s Right to Choose” and talked about “a woman’s reproductive rights.”

Christians, once again, are being told that we can have our ‘god’ as long as we accept the gods of others. We may follow the teachings of our Sacred Scripture as long as we acknowledge that the Bible is one book among many, just a history book that must ‘change with the times’. Like the early Christians, we must be firm in our faith and in the knowledge that all religions are not the same and there is One Savior who washed our sins away in his own blood.

We must, we absolutely MUST, acknowledge life as separate and definite. A child is NOT a woman’s body, it is a distinct life form that will develop an independent consciousness. If a child were just a part of the woman’s body, it would not be expelled after a specific period of time to function relatively independently. A child outside the womb remains dependent upon the parents. A child inside the woman has its own circulation and can even have differing blood types from the mother.

No, the child deserves our protection. If we choose not to protect the child in the womb, what prevents us from withholding protection to the battered woman, the abused child, the murdered innocent?Share on Facebook

Thoughts on the 6th Annual March for Life

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
Amen

In front of Holy Family Cathedral, the March for Life began.
In front of Holy Family Cathedral, the March for Life began.

Sometimes it just doesn’t look like we can make any kind of difference and nothing we can do will have merit. In these times, when looking at the incredible multitude of murdered children through abortion, when our words are twisted in such a way the it seems that, if we love children, if we support life, we are portrayed as “haters of women” or “denying women’s rights to ‘choose'”. It is during these times, when it looks bleak, that we should look to our Creator for His Divine Mercy to not despair but have confidence in His Holy Will.

The Tulsa March for Life is next Thursday. Please make it a point to join a cross section of our communities, from churches in Claremore, Anglicans from Broken Arrow, Lutherans, Tulsa Bible Church, Victory Christian Center, Catholics, and women and children, men and sons from all walks of life. Each of them, my own friends and family, anyone, can make a difference with our actions. Invite a friend.

This is not a protest, it is a challenge. It is not a parade, it is a demonstration and a prayer. This is NOT a “Catholic” thing, it is a “People thing”. This is about honoring the lost lives of over 55 MILLION children who never were given the choice to live, have children, have families – more than half of whom would have been sisters, daughters, mothers and grandmothers! This is not about discrimination toward women, but about giving a voice to women who, otherwise, are defenseless in the face of abortion.

Raising Money For Abortion Using Pro-Life Tim Tebow

 
I am not endorsing Randall Terry for President, however, I like the fact that he is spreading the word about  Pro-Life. Tulsa’s March for Life begins at 2 pm in downtown Tulsa on Jan 22nd.

Did You Know That The Abortion Gang is
Raising Money in Tim Tebow’s Name to Kill Babies?

Let’s use a Pro-Life 2012 Super Bowl Ad to show
MILLIONS OF AMERICANS
What The Abortion Gang Does: It Murders Babies.

Let’s Make The Abortion Gang RUE THE DAY
They used Tim Tebow’s faith in Christ to
Raise Money for Murder.

Dear Pro-life, Christian Friend,

I humbly beg you to read this entire letter. As you will see, it is a matter of life and death.

On December 13, 2011, Sofia Brugato, a blogger for The Abortion Gang called on her fellow supporters of child killing to “donate $5 or $10 to your local pro-choice organization” every time Tim Tebow scored a touchdown.

Her despicable challenge has the ring of a horror film: “Every time you do something good, we will kill an innocent person.”

Her agenda made an international stir; HUNDREDS of American and international news outlets (FOX, CBS, NY Daily News, the Daily Mail for starters) and THOUSANDS of blogs covered her unholy invitation.

Why is “Sophia” Brugato so obsessed with Tim Tebow? Why is she raising money to kill babies when he scores? And who is The Abortion Gang?

Sophia plainly admits the source of her animosity for Tim Tebow: 1) it is his and his family’s faith in Jesus, and 2) the pro-life Super Bowl ad the Tebows and Focus on the Family ran on the Super Bowl in 2010 that has her on a killing/spending spree. She mockingly says:

A few years back, the-best-person-and-football-player-on-the-planet, Tim Tebow, the savior from The University of Florida, Heisman Trophy winner, 2010 number 25 draft pick, and now savior quarterback for the Denver Broncos, made a commercial….he was selling anti-choice propaganda. In his commercial (funded by Focus on the Family) he reminded everyone that his mother was a missionary whose life was threatened by her pregnancy – or more specifically, the pregnancy that would turn into the child who would become the man who would become Tim Tebow. Sophia Brugato, The Abortion Gang, December 13, 2011

Her ramblings become more personal and vitriolic (one wonders if she killed one of her own babies) concerning the Tebow Super Bowl ad, his Christian Faith, and his pro-life message,

Sophia Brugato’s solution was to urge all supporters of child killing to give money to their favorite child killer, to kill babies. And she meant it.

On December 21, 2011, Sophia bragged about a baby whose murder she helped fund:

Delores was 21 weeks pregnant – bumping right up against the legal limit for abortion in Arizona. She was getting a late term abortion because she didn’t know she was pregnant until 20 weeks. The birth control method she uses eliminates her period. The only clue about pregnancy was the weight gain. We helped Delores pay for her abortion, as well as gave her money for gas and helped connect her with housing, since she, too, had to drive to Phoenix from a small, rural community.
 


21 week alive and dead baby


Babies are born EVERY DAY in America at 21 weeks, and due to the advance of medical technology, they survive. And “Sophia” BOASTS that the baby they helped pay to murder was 21 weeks old. May God have mercy on their souls:

The message is, “if you abort, just think, that could be the next President of the United States in there, the next scientist that cures cancer, or the next greatest football player alive!” …[Tim Tebow] is the same man that used the Super Bowl to a) build his reputation and brand as the saintliest saint of an athlete that ever lived, and b) raise money for an anti-choice organization that would deny the right to abortion to millions of women that need it. Sophia Brugato, The Abortion Gang, December 13, 2011

 

Her solution, as I quoted above: “For every touchdown Tebow throws next week (when the Broncos play against another famous QB, Tom Brady), donate $5 or $10 to your local pro-choice organization. If the Broncos make the playoffs…I plan to continue the pledge.”

The more I thought about this, the more angry I became. Here they are – raising money to kill unborn children because a Christian family who is pro-life has given public support for unborn babies.

Colorado Springs Gazette columnist Wayne Laugesen had this to say: “Yes, it’s an insult. She [Sophia] contrived this fundraising scheme because Tebow adamantly opposes abortion. He became a subject of ridicule after appearing in an anti-abortion Super Bowl ad in 2010.” He concludes with this flash of genius:

“Brugato’s campaign should inspire
those who oppose abortion to
donate money to anti-abortion organizations…”


Let’s make “Sophia” and the child killers regret the day they raised money to kill babies.

Let’s make them rue the day they attacked Tim Tebow because of his Christian faith, and because of his pro-life ad that he ran in the Super Bowl of 2010 by showing pro-life ads in Super Bowl 2012 that grab the attention of the nation.

We Have Pro-life Super Bowl Ads for 2012
Ready To Run in 40 Cities, in 17 States…

Will You Help Us Show MILLIONS of Americans
What Abortion Really Is?

       These Pro-Life Super Bowl Ads are a way for good people all over this country to respond to this type of despicable pro-death efforts;

       These Pro-Life Super Bowl Ads will save THOUSANDS of babies; many women who are pregnant and see these ads, will choose life for their baby as a result (if only “Delores” who was 21 weeks pregnant had seen these ads, her baby might still be alive.);

       These ads will bring America face to face with the victims of The Abortion Gang, and hopefully, cause a crisis of conscience for those who support child killing;

       There has NEVER been an opportunity like this since Roe vs. Wade brought us child killing on demand. Because I am running for President, the law to run the political ads I see fit, protects me.

As a federal candidate, I am allowed BY LAW to run my campaign ads where I am on the ballot. There are 40 cities in 17 states where we can run hard hitting pro-life ads, but we need to raise the money right now.

(Click here to view ad, and to give.)

These ads have already been seen in Iowa and New Hampshire and their surrounding states. We have gotten a good bit of media coverage in those areas as well.

But…Imagine the IMPACT
Of Showing HARD HITTING
Pro-Life Ads on
The 2012 SUPER BOWL on Sunday, February 5 !!!

 

We will reach TENS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS, and get enormous media coverage as well. And THAT, my friend, is what the babies deserve.

And it is exactly what people like “Sophia” and The Abortion Gang who murder unborn babies dread. They FEAR Americans seeing the truth.

Let’s be a voice for the babies. I beg you to give right away to these Pro-Life Super Bowl ads. We only have a few days to book the ad, and to pay for them in advance in these cities.

What follows is a comprehensive list of the stations I could be on because I am running a hard hitting, pro-life Presidential campaign against Obama:

Elko, NV, (Salt lake) KENV-TV

Do you see? The Super Bowl
Is a HUGE opportunity for the babies!

 

But we have to ask ourselves: how much does it mean to us to show millions of Americans the truth about child killing?

Friend, I ask you right now to do three things:

1)    Give to this campaign. Whether $25, $250, or the legal limit of $2,500 per person, please give. Over 80% of your contribution will go toward these ads.

2)    Pray that these ads will save thousands of babies’ lives, and impact the nation for justice’ sake.

3)    Forward this email to a friend, and ask them to give to this ad campaign as well.

We have to raise at least $100,000 in the next few weeks to get these ads on the Super Bowl (or in the pre-game or post-game shows) of the cities we listed.

Frankly, $100,000 is not a lot for the impact and reach these ads will have.

Again, I beg you, give whatever you can to this life saving effort.

 

Our mission is to save babies’ lives NOW with these HARD HITTING
ADS, and to create the political firepower and upheaval needed to make it
a crime to kill a baby from conception till birth.

 

Think of what “Sophia” and The Abortion Gang have done, to mock God, disparage the Tebow family, and to raise money to murder babies.

And then let’s respond as true defenders of Life, and defenders of our faith.

Please, give right now. Babies’ lives depend on it. And by the way, after you have given, why don’t you drop a line to The Abortion Gang, and let them know that you are helping fund a wave of Pro-life Super Bowl ads that will save babies from their bloody clutches.

After you give, click the email button to send The Abortion Gang an email telling them what you have done for the babies.

Randall Terry
Candidate for President.

P.S. The reason I am running in a Democrat Primary against Obama, is so that I do not “split the vote” between Republicans; I am taking this fight to Obama, and giving a place for pro-life Democrats and Independents to put their vote. And I am using this window to run ads on the Super Bowl that could have impact for years to come.
