Pennsylvania Governor's Race: Tom Corbett vs. Dan Onorato- Where do the candidates stand on abortion?

Tom Corbett, A Champion for Life
By Maureen Manzano
In the race for governor, sometimes silence speaks volumes.
Tom Corbett, Pennsylvania attorney general, and Republican
candidate for governor, has been a consistent pro-life advocate.
In a recent poll conducted by the PA Pro-Life Federation,
Corbett said he would support:
* Prohibiting the use of taxpayer dollars to fund elective abortions .
* Legislation providing women with the opportunity to view an
ultrasound of their preborn child before an abortion.
*Banning the use of state tax dollars for research which
destroys human embryos .
* Funding of Pregnancy Counseling Centers which provide
alternatives to abortion and do not counsel or refer for abortions.

His opponent, Democrat Dan Onorato, who has claimed to be
“personally pro-life,” has refused to respond to questions regarding
the above issues, in the PA Pro-Life Federation questionnaire.
He has also been quoted as saying that “Even if Roe v. Wade is
overturned, I will veto any attempt to change Pennsylvania’s law.”
(That law would allow abortions for up to 24 weeks of pregnancy).
Mr. Corbett has lauded the work of pro-life groups across the
state, and has consistently worked to preserve restrictions on abortions
in the state of Pennsylvania. He also stood up to Planned Parenthood
by supporting New Hampshire’s abortion control act before the
U.S. Supreme Court. By doing so, he ultimately protected
Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act by helping to preserve
restrictions on abortion nationwide.

Both candidates have promoted their own proposals for
healthcare reform in the state Mr. Corbett as attorney general,
joined Pennsylvania with 19 other states to file a lawsuit to stop
what is now called Obamacare, the sweeping health care reform
legislation that includes funding for abortion and raises concerns
about health care rationing. The states believe that the healthcare
reforms are unconstitutional.

In August, a federal judge allowed the suit to continue. The
federal court hearing began last month. While the Obama
Administration believes that states have no legal standing to bring
legal action against the federal government, attorneys general
for the 20 states believe the federal government is exceeding its
Constitutional authority by its mandate that all citizens have
health insurance or face a fine. The federal government’s
argument has been that the “individual mandate” is actually a
tax. Only taxpayers can argue the legality of a tax, they contend,
and even then only after the assessments take effect in 2015.
The administration also will cite its constitutional authority to
regulate interstate commerce, along with its responsibility to
provide for the public’s general welfare. As for healthcare, Mr.
Onorato has outlined several proposals, and while it does not go
into great detail under “Women’s Health,” it states that he “supports
state funding for comprehensive family planning services.”

Where does Chris Carney stand on abortion?

Where does Chris Carney stand on abortion? Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life Action wrote in a blog post "Chris Carney voted for the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in American history (that being Obama's health care bill) and has a clear 100 percent rating from two leading pro-abortion advocacy groups." 9/7/10 http://takeaction.aul.org/tag/chris-carney/
Rep. Carney is not pro-life according to Yoest, "Carney had a 100 percent rating" with the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL ProChoice America) in 2007 and Planned Parenthood in 2008. According to their mission statement, NARAL "uses the political process to guarantee….the full range of reproductive choices, including choosing legal abortion." Planned Parenthood performs more abortions nationwide than any other organization. Clearly these pro-abortion organizations endorsed Carney because his voting record has been favorable to abortion.

The National Right to Life Committee's Federal Legislation Scorecard notes Rep. Chris Carney voted AGAINST key pro-life legislation six times in the 110th Congress and for pro-life legislation only once for a dismal record of 14%. Don't be fooled, Chris Carney will not vote to defend the rights of unborn children.

In Malawi: “Although the school’s director had made it absolutely clear that no New Testaments were to be given to the Muslim pupils and that in no way was any student obliged to take a copy of the book, there was a subsequent uproar on the part of some Muslim youths, who tore up the New Testaments, threw them, howling at their teachers, and then threw the torn-up pages out onto the streets,” Aid to the Church in Need reported.Visit: Catholic Culture : Latest Headlines : Muslim students in Malawi desecrate New Testaments:

Joe Sestak Endorsed by National Abortion Rights Action League by Sue Cirba

How radical is Rep. Joe Sestak's record on abortion? Sestak is radical enough to have earned the endorsement of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) in all of his political campaigns, as well as contributions from them. According to their mission statement, NARAL "uses the political process to guarantee….the full range of reproductive choices, including … choosing legal abortion."
Sestak received NARAL's endorsement and a $5,000 campaign contribution in the PA primary against Arlen Specter according to a May 12 th press release by Nancy Keenan, NARAL's president. Sestak said he was "greatful" for NARAL's support.
Joe Sestak has been supported by the pro-abortion group NARAL consistently. In Sestak's "first successful campaign…NARAL...spent $232,000 on independent expenditures, including voter identification, polling, persuasion mail pieces…, and phone calls, reaching 86,000 households." according to Ms. Keenan's press release. NARAL's political action committee "contributed $10,000 to Sestak's 2006 campaign and $2,500 to his re-election bid in 2008" wrote Keenan. She added, Sestak's endorsement "continued the organization's strong ties with Sestak"
Pro-life voter's need to know about Sestak's pro-abortion stand and remember Sestak cast NO votes for pro-life legislation during his career in Congress according to the National Right to Life Committee scorecard.

New Campaign Targets 42 House Districts Reaching 2.3 Million Pro-Life Voters

The SBA List direct mail campaign ... will reach more than 2.3 million identified pro-life voters in 42 competitive Congressional districts across the country.

“The common factor among this unusually large number of competitive races is a dissatisfaction with the broad overreach of the Obama Administration and its Congressional allies, especially on the issue of abortion,” the organization's president, Marjorie Dannenfeler, told LifeNews.com this morning.

“Poll after poll shows that Americans do not want their tax dollars funding abortions, yet the Obama administration and its allies in Congress have expanded taxpayer funding of abortion both here and abroad in unprecedented ways," she said.
The mailings also target Martin Heinrich and Dina Titus in Nevada; Daniel Maffei in New York; Steve Driehaus, Marcy Kaptur, Betty Sutton and John Bocciere in Ohio; Kathy Dahlkemper, Patrick Murphy, Chris Carney, and Paul Kanjorski in Pennsylvania; New Campaign Targets 42 House Districts Reaching 2.3 Million Pro-Life Voters

Before you vote on Electioon Day November 2 be sure to read Thomas Sowell's column on government run health care.

Before you vote on November 2 be sure to read Thomas Sowell's column on government run health care. Then decide if you want to keep Obamacare or repeal it.
Thomas Sowel writes: "We need to examine the claim that the government can '"bring down the cost of medical care."

The most basic fact is that it is cheaper to remain sick than to get medical treatment. What is cheapest of all is to die instead of getting life-saving medications and treatment, which can be very expensive." Article continues:

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on President Obama's speech on October 18 at a fundraising dinner:

For the second time this fall, President Obama has quoted from the Declaration of Independence, omitting any reference to God. In Rockville, Maryland on Monday, he spoke of "inalienable rights," mentioning that "all men are created equal," but omitted what comes after this phrase: namely, he did not say "that they are endowed by their Creator" with these unalienable rights.

On September 15, after Obama omitted the same words before the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (there are four references to God in the Declaration), I faulted his speech writers but defended the president by saying he should "be given a pass." I can no longer do so: President Obama, it is painfully obvious, does not believe that individual rights are given to us by God.

The most dramatic historical achievement of the American Revolution was the insistence of the Founders that the state is not the source of our rights. What the state grants, it can take away. We saw this most strikingly under the Soviets: the Soviet Constitution was a marvelous tribute to human liberty, the only problem being that it made the state the origin of individual rights. By declaring God to be the origin of rights, the Founders deliberately awarded a subordinate role to government.

President Obama is the first president in American history not to acknowledge that all rights stem from God. Given that all prepared presidential speeches are written and vetted by many people, and that he was roundly criticized last month for this same infraction, it is only fair to conclude that this was not a mistake. This was deliberate.

"We kidded ourselves for a while," Chancellor Merkel said, but now it was clear that the attempt to build a society where people of very different languages and cultures could "live side-by-side" and "enjoy each other" has "failed, utterly failed."

Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Counseling Bill - Pro-life measure supported by Pro-life Tom Corbett, candidate for Governor

Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Counseling Bill - Pro-life measure supported by Pro-life Tom Corbett, candidate for Governor
From the blog of James May:
There is currently a bill in the PA Legislature referred to as the Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Counseling Bill. This bill, if passed, would require a pregnant mother to view an ultrasound of her baby prior to a mandatory waiting period before she could kill her child.
Tom Corbett has promised that if this bill is passed and it comes to his desk, HE WILL SIGN IT. Dan Onorato has promised that if this bill is passed and it comes to his desk, HE WILL NOT SIGN IT.
So here is your scenario -
Let's suppose that for the sake of argument the election is held tomorrow, and you hold the deciding vote. Dan Onorato has 4,999,999 votes; Tom Corbett has 4,999,999 votes and there have been 100,000 votes cast for a write-in candidate. When you walk into the polling booth, how will you vote?
Now let's add one more "twist" to this scenario -Let's also suppose that we are assured that next year the House and Senate will pass the Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Counseling Law and this bill will go to the desk of our next governor. Again - how will you vote?
Finally, let's also suppose that if Tom Corbett is sitting in that chair and he signs it, that there will be a 17-year-old young lady named Ashley who will go for an abortion, but after viewing the ultrasound of her baby will change her mind and allow her baby - a little girl named Hannah - to live. Again - the bill will be signed by Tom Corbett; it will NOT be signed by Dan Onorato.
I know there are a handful of people who - for whatever reason - want to "teach the Republican party a lesson" by working to defeat Tom Corbett. If that is your position, I ask you to consider the very real impact that your vote could have on thousands of the most innocent lives - unborn children. While this scenario is hypothetical, it is not-at-all out of the realm of likely possibilities. And again, if your vote holds the power to decide - how will you vote? Are you willing to "teach the Republican party a lesson" if doing so would cost one little girl her life? How precious is life?

Trenton, NJ – In a marathon hearing lasting nearly nine hours, the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners formally A Press Release by Operation Rescue"suspended the medical license of Steven Chase Brigham, ruling that he presented “a clear and imminent danger to the public health and safety.” The Board will forward his case to an Administrative judge for a revocation hearing.

What is the effect of “Ella” on a teenage woman’s body?

The Family Research Council did a series on the abortifacient "ella". This post raises concerns about the effect on developing female teenagers and includes a video. From FRC: "The FDA issued no age limitations for ella. Dr. Harrison explains that no studies have been completed concerning the impact of ella on a developing female teenager. She explains that adolescent girls require estrogen and progesterone to properly develop, and therefore the impact of impeding this development could potentially be serious. For example, it is not known if a young woman might have difficulty in recovering ovarian activity once it has been intentionally blocked. Dr. Harrison makes the point that more studies should take place to assure ella’s safety for young women." Visit: What is the effect of “Ella” on a teenage woman’s body?

Examiner Editorial: If you like your health insurance, too bad | Washington Examiner

In 2003, 5.3 million Americans were enrolled in Medicare Advantage. Today, there are 11.3 million, or 24 percent of all Medicare enrollees. On average, Medicare only covers about 60 percent of health care costs. Medicare Advantage was designed to help fill the gap for those that can't afford conventional supplemental coverage. Most of Obama's Medicare Advantage cuts will hit those with incomes of less than $32,400 per year, according to a recent Heritage Foundation study. The Heritage study also projects 7.4 million more seniors will be forced out of Medicare Advantage within four year
