Upper St. Clair couple's Down syndrome advocacy a labor of love

Margie Kondrich was afraid to look at her baby.
In 2003, after giving birth to her daughter, Chloe, in a Pittsburgh hospital, the attending medical staff suddenly turned somber. They told Kondrich that her baby displayed characteristics of Down syndrome, a genetic disorder that went undetected despite five sonograms.

A Christian Told Him Abortion Will Never be Stopped, His Response Was Priceless

“Abortion cannot be stopped.” That is what a man said to me as I was
coming out of Mass with the Stand True Mission Team and the walkers from
Crossroads Pro-life Walks Across America.

told him that many people said that slavery would never be made illegal
back in the 1800s. He just ignored that and continued to argue that
abortion will never be outlawed. I tried to explain to him that this
generation is waking up to the truth about the abortion holocaust and
that this would be the generation that will abolish abortion.

He almost seemed annoyed with us for having the audacity to believe
such a thing.  I told him to look at biblical
history and see what God can do.  He just kept repeating that abortion will never be outlawed and I finally asked him, “How big is your God?”  Visit:  A Christian Told Him Abortion Will Never be Stopped, His Response Was Priceless

National Right to Life Convention, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls

This past weekend I spent three days at the National Right to Life Convention in Louisville, KY.
It was an excellent conference with many speakers I'd heard before and many I didn't.  I was impressed with the woman who spoke about the Girl Scouts and their own resources regarding the sad inclusion of reproductive rights advocacy throughout the Girl Scout organization.  Ann Saladin thoroughly investigated this issue and has created, a website documenting specific concerns about the Girl Scouts

In addition, representatives from American Heritage Girls, an alternative to Girl Scouts, had a booth at the convention.  I was able to speak to a few girls who have been with American Heritage Girls for several years.  They seemed very happy with the American Heritage Girls experience.  You can learn more about this organization at  AHG has 772 Troops across the United States.

Justina Pelletier’s Family Promises to Sue Massachusetts for Abducting Their Daughter

Lou Pelletier told MailOnline that he will not mince words now that he is no longer gagged and Justina is home.

“I am still very angry at the psychiatrists, Boston Children’s Hospital, and the Department of Families and Children for putting Justina through this. My daughter was used as a lab rat, a cruel experiment.

They tried to gag me, to prevent me from telling what was going on. Can you imagine what would have happened to Justina if I hadn’t gone public?  Justina who once was able to ice skate is now confined to a wheel chair.

Judge Stops Texas Man’s Estranged Wife From Starving Him to Death

Last Friday, Terry Dean Martin was admitted to Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas – Beaumont Campus due to complications associated with his kidneys.  On Sunday night at approximately 11:00 PM, Terry Martin’s heart stopped beating.  Martin was immediately provided with emergency medical treatment and is somewhat responsive but has not regained complete consciousness.  Martin is currently being provided with life-sustaining treatment including a ventilator, nutrition, and hydration.

Gary and Angela Martin immediately drove from Oklahoma to Beaumont upon learning of the news.  Terry Martin and his estranged wife, Debi Martin, have been separated for over nine years.  On Monday, Debi Martin, who lives in the Beaumont area, arrived at the hospital seeking to have all life-sustaining treatment removed immediately.  Terry Martin’s estate includes a 23-acre tract of land with a 2,000 sq. ft. home.  Debi Martin is believed to be the beneficiary of his Terry Martin’s $150,000 life insurance policy.  Visit:  Judge Stops Texas Man’s Estranged Wife From Starving Him to Death

A new direction for Republicans outlined by Michael Needham CEO Heritage Action for America

Heritage Action for America (If you  are reading this, click to display images in your email program.)

Time for Choosing

Fellow conservative,
A political earthquake rocked Washington, DC last night.
The implications of Dave Brat's stunning victory go well beyond politics, however. As the Weekly Standard's William Kristol explained, the race became "a broad populist case for a Republican party focused on Main Street and Middle America, not on Wall Street and corporate interests."
For the past four years, Heritage Action has been making the case that conservatives should not be in the business of protecting or justifying corporate welfare. Instead, we should confront the Bigs – Big Wall Street, Big Government, Big Labor, Big Education and Big Business – head on, and fight for the conservative policy solutions that will save the country, not simply those that help the well connected.
And last night, voters made DC listen.
Thank you for all you have done to advance conservative policy.

Michael A. Needham

D-Day at 70: When Order Triumphed Over Evil

This June 6th marks the seventieth anniversary of the D-Day Normandy landings. While not the largest amphibious operation in history, it is perhaps the most significant. Europe was pinned beneath the boot of National Socialism, a godless, gnostic sect that swept God from public life. The Normandy invasion spelled the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.  Visit: D-Day at 70: When Order Triumphed Over Evil

Barletta on VA Scandal

Barletta Statement Resignation of Secretary Shinseki
WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta, PA-11, today issued a statement regarding the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki following a meeting with President Obama at the White House.  The resignation comes on the heels of an Inspector General’s report that found that 1,700 veterans were kept on unofficial waiting lists at a Phoenix VA hospital and waited an average of 115 days for treatment.  Additionally, the report found that information was manipulated to conceal the length of time patients waited for medical attention.  The report also found the problem to be systemic and not limited to the Phoenix facility.  At least forty veterans are reported to have died while waiting for treatment.
Barletta’s statement is as follows:
“I have always believed that cabinet members serve at the pleasure of the president, and in this case President Obama clearly felt that Secretary Shinseki could no longer adequately lead an agency that has suffered such a scandal and loss of public confidence.  I thank General Shinseki for his long and distinguished career in service to his country.  I also note that this is one event in this sad affair that the president will not have to learn about from the news media.
“The deplorable treatment of veterans at VA medical facilities is something that no American should tolerate.  The Inspector General’s report is yet more evidence that the problem is systemic, widespread, and certainly not limited to one hospital in Phoenix.  I continue to believe that a Department of Justice investigation is warranted to determine the full scope of the flaws and to identify responsible parties.
“In the House, we have already taken steps toward reforming the VA with the bipartisan passage of a measure that would give the secretary greater latitude in removing senior officials in the agency.  I wish the Senate would follow our lead.  In the meantime, there are a number of proposals being offered to improve the VA and its service to veterans and I am eager to examine each one on its own merits.  At the very least, this pokes a very large hole in the belief that government is the first and best solution to health care needs.”

Will you fight for Pennsylvania marriage?

A post from my friend Mary Ann: 
Will you fight for Pennsylvania marriage?
Please contact Governor Corbett right now
and let him know you insist he appeal the homosexual “marriage” ruling
!!  717-787-2500 (Policy Office 1-717-772-9003, Corbett's Philadelphia Office 1-215-560-2640,
Corbett's Pittsburgh Office 1-412-565-5700.)
Wed., Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said he will not appeal Tuesday’s ruling by a federal judge that overturned the state’s ban on gay marriage.

IMHO this is unconscionable!!  Corbett had 30 days to appeal the ruling to the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals and could have asked Jones to stay his ruling until an appeal was heard.....  In this most serious, society altering  matter,  It is  prudent to let the dust settle and ask for help for an appeal from the  brilliant, courageous  constitutional attorneys and legal scholars that collectively are working on this very same issue to defend traditional marriage????    
From Corbett's statement:“Given the high legal threshold set forth by Judge Jones in this case, the case is extremely unlikely to succeed on appeal,”   ( Unlikely does not mean impossible!!)  “Therefore, after review of the opinion and on the advice of my Commonwealth legal team, I have decided not to appeal Judge Jones’ decision. “As a Roman Catholic, the traditional teaching of my faith has not wavered. (It just did!!) I continue to maintain the belief that marriage is between one man and one woman. My duties as Governor require that I follow the laws as interpreted by the courts and make a judgment as to the likelihood of a successful appeal.  ( Apparently the THE LAW allows for an appeal! )

“Throughout the debate on this important and meaningful issue, I have maintained that Commonwealth officials and agencies would follow the provisions of Pennsylvania’s marriage law unless or until a court says otherwise. The court has spoken,  (one liberal justice has spoken! )and I will ensure that my administration follows the provisions of Judge Jones’ order with respect for all parties. It is my hope that as the important issue of same-sex relationships continues to be addressed in our society, that all involved be treated with respect.” (Empty Rhetoric!!   As in a cancer that is metastasizing if left unchecked, This unchallenged decision in Pa. joins the 18 other states in the systematic well orchestrated destruction of the family, area of adoption, education, freedom of speech etc!  It was important to seize the moment  NOW   while the opportunity  presented itself! ) 

Dear Friends,

U.S. District Judge John Jones has ruled against
Pennsylvania’s real marriage law.

This fight all started last year when your state
attorney general Kathleen Kane refused to do her
job and defend real marriage when it was challenged
in court.

Next, a local county clerk went rouge and started
 issuing marriage licenses to whomever he liked.

Public Advocate supporters rallied, but Governor
Corbett only took limited action.

And now, he is refusing to appeal Judge Jone’s

Please contact the governor’s office right away
and insist that he do everything in his power to
preserve Pennsylvania’s real marriage law.
For the Family!
