Cincinnati Homeschool Convention April 16-18, 2009

Homeschoolers and pro-life people will be interested in this e-mail I received about a homeschooling convention in the mid-west. Wish I could be there-especiallyl to hear what Terri Schiavo's parents' lead attorney David Gibbs has to say. Here is more from www.CincinnatiHomeschoolConvention.com:

"Do you remember the tragic story of Terri Schaivo? Perhaps you aren't aware just how tragic it was, and the implications it has for YOU and your family.

DAVID GIBBS is a Homeschooling Dad, and the founder of Homeschool Legal Advantage. He also was the lead attorney for Terri Schaivo's parents as they battled to save her life.

One of David's sessions is Thursday evening at 5PM. He will be providing a riveting, behind-the-scenes look at the Terri Schaivo case- and the details that were NOT reported in the press.

As an added bonus - everyone attending this session (Thursday evening at 5PM) will receive a FREE DVD entitled "Fighting for Dear Life." In this emotional, power-packed video interview, David Gibbs III explains what really happened behind-the-scenes, and why it matters to all of us!

In closing, WE STILL HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF WORKING SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE! Please follow this link for more information.

Thousands of homeschoolers (from 18 states and one foreign country) are attending this year's convention. And yet, thousands more are still unaware that this very encouraging, helpful and affordable event exists.

Will you help us spread-the-word? THANKS! Forward this email to a Friend"

New Stem-Cell Breakthrough May Bring About Health-Care Revolution - The Philadelphia Bulletin

"Jason Burnett and his 10-year-old son Andrew, both born with a genetic defect, have been recruited into an experiment designed to transform bits of their skin into stem cells that may someday hold the key to a cure.

The Burnetts inherited a heart disease that leaves the father exhausted after a short walk. The two are among the first patients working with scientists who are using a new stem-cell technique that may someday revolutionize care for disorders as diverse as diabetes, Alzheimer’s and muscular dystrophy." There are no human embryps killed using this method. The story continues:

Washington Times - THOMAS: Guilty consciences

Cal Thomas' commentary on abortion:
"Why do social liberals say they want to make abortion 'safe, legal and rare,' but then spend all their time on the first two and none on the third? It is relatively simple to reduce the number of abortions, even while keeping them 'safe' and 'legal.' Show the abortion-minded woman a sonogram of the fetus she is about to destroy." The article continues:
Washington Times - THOMAS: Guilty consciences:

Physicians Conscience Rights - Urgent! Your Comments Needed!

Take Action! "Super Urgent Issue","Extremely Urgent Priority Until April 9"
The American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) are encouraging health care professionals and patients to take action on a "Super Urgent Issue". The AAPLOG calls the fight for Physician's Conscience Rights in their medical decision making an "Extremely Urgent Priority Until April 9"
The Obama Administration will rescind the new HHS Regulation that guarantees a physician's conscience rights in medical decision making.UNLESS YOU ACT NOW!" Please visitwww.freedom2care.org

The American Spectator : AmSpecBlog : Did Canada's Universal Health Care Kill Natasha Richardson?

I just read the People Magazine story on the death of Natasha Richardson. Of course they said nothing about the details of the inept system of socialized medicine that surely played a factor in Ms. Richardson's death.
"Did the fact that Canada has a socialist, government-run healthcare system --similar to the kind that President Obama wants to ram down the throats of Americans--kill acclaimed actress Natasha Richardson? The short answer is yes, it may very well have done so." (from the American Spectator article) Cirba: How you ask? There was no helecopter airlift system in the province of Quebec to speed trauma victims to the hospital. Read this very carefully folks, Montreal, Quebec is a city of 1,620,693 people acording to 2006 population figures, and they have no helecopter airlift system. Yet in Scranton, PA a city of just 72,485, we have a helecopter that takes off from the roof of Scranton's Community Medical Center to life flight patients to hospitals where they can get the care they need. And Barack Obama wants to take our health care system and turn it into the trainwreck called socialized medicine! To read the American Spectator article visit:

Pro-lifers' sting tags more AZ abortion clinics (OneNewsNow.com)

"A student-led nonprofit has released more undercover videos of Planned Parenthood workers offering an abortion to someone posing as an underage girl, allegedly concealing statutory rape in the process.

Lila Rose of Live Action, who posed as a teenager along with another young woman, told workers that she had been impregnated by a 27-year-old man -- information that the workers essentially ignored. She explains that this latest video 'shows the fourth and the fifth Planned Parenthood clinic covering up the sexual abuse of a very young girl -- in this case a 15-year-old girl.' Both of the clinics are located in Phoenix, Arizona. (See YouTube video of visits to Phoenix clinics)" Visit:

InsideCatholic.com - Obama's Choice of Sebelius Heats Up the Pro-life Battle

Deal W. Hudson discusses Kathleen Sebelius' ties to abortion and how as secretary of Health and Human Services Sebelius would pressure Catholic institutions to provide abortion. Hudson writes:
"The first Catholic hospital system to bend to the pressure is Caritas Christi, owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Boston. Only a few days ago, maybe eager to cozy up to the Obama administration and Sebelius, Caritas Christi announced a joint venture with the Centene Corporation to join a state-mandated health-insurance program that would include coverage for abortion and contraceptives -- what the Catholic hospital system calls 'confidential family-planning services.'"

From Operation Rescue - Campaign Contributions made by Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller to Kathleen Sebelius

Operation Rescue® » Sebelius Unfit For HHS Post - Facts About Her Connections To The Abortion Cartel: "Follow The Money
Documents on file with the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission that show that Tiller, his abortion mill Women’s Health Care Services, and his political action committee, ProKanDo, donated tens of thousands of dollars to Sebelius campaigns over the years.
Those campaign contributions include, but are not limited to the following:
09-25-2001 JEANNE TILLER $ 2,000
09-25-2000 GEORGE TILLER $2,000
9-25-2000 GEORGE TILLER MD $2,000
09-10-1998 GEORGE TILLER $ 200
12-14-1998 JEANNE TILLER $ 250
06-18-1998 PRO CHOICE ACTION LEAGUE $1,000
05-01-1997 GEORGE TILLER $ 500
11-21-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $ 500
11-14-1994 GEORGE R TILLER PA $2,000
09-02-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $2,000
06-10-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $ 500
04-15-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $ 500
In Addition, Tiller has contributed generously to Sebelius’ PAC, the Bluestem Fund:
09-01-2000 GEORGE R. TILLER MD $5,000
09-07-2000 GEORGE R. TILLER MD PA $5,000
Since 2002, there has been public outry about the amount of money Tiller has pumped into Kansas politics. Since then he has made efforts to mask his political contributions by creating dummy “non-profit” organizations and other third-party groups that in turn make donations to candidates or make expenditures for political activity that has affected the outcome of elections, without having to give an accounting to the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, or anyone else."

Operation Rescue® » Sebelius Unfit For HHS Post - Facts About Her Connections To The Abortion Cartel

"Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) has been listed as a top contender for nomination by President Barack Obama as Secretary of Health and Human Services. Operation Rescue, the Christian Defense Coalition, and a coalition of other pro-life groups are joining together to oppose her possible nomination by Obama and confirmation by the United States Senate.
Sebelius is perhaps the most rabidly pro-abortion governor in the United States, and has a long history in Kansas of blocking common-sense legislation that would have protected women from unregulated and unaccountable abortion mills. She has also been caught impeding efforts to hold abortionists accountable to the law." Visit:

Operation Rescue® Opposes Sebelius for HHS

Operation Rescue: "We are working to raise a unified voice in the pro-life/pro-family community against the confirmation of Gov. Sebelius,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Sebelius’ close connections to the abortion lobby, especially late-term abortionist George Tiller make her unfit to serve.”" Operation rescue calls upon pro-lifers to contact their Senators.

Bob Casey, Bishop Martino and Abortion

Catholics around the nation are watching Bishop Martino's defense of life and truth. Here is a sample from John Borra's of Kansaas:
"Just a few days ago, Scranton's wonderful Bishop Joseph Martino released an open letter to Casey, reminding him once again of his moral obligation 'to oppose abortion and other clear evils.' According to Catholic News Agency:

Earlier in the month, in a first rebuke to Senator Casey, Bishop Martino had warned that the senator's vote against an extension of the Mexico City policy-- which prohibited US taxpayer funding of abortion advocacy abroad-- was a violation of the legislator's moral obligation. “Your failure to reverse this vote will regrettably mean that you persist formally in cooperating with the evil brought about by this hideous and unnecessary policy,” the bishop wrote."
