We have been hearing from people all across the country who will be participating in Protest the Pill Day '08: The Pill Kills Babies. It is time for America to wake up and accept the fact that the pill can kill preborn babies. Women deserve to know the truth and we are happy to see the outstanding amount of support and participation.

There will be protests in Connecticut, South Dakota, Utah, Nebraska, Michigan, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Virginia, Washington D.C. and many other areas throughout the country.

On Friday, June 6, American Life League hosted a press conference in conjunction with Peggy Hamill of Pro-Life Wisconsin, Jodi Wagner of Pharmacists for Life, and Dr. Marie Anderson of the Tepeyac Family Center, explaining the true nature of the abortifacient effects of the birth control pill.

May God bless all of your efforts! ( LINK )


Charity and cancer

Perhaps Oregon should change its motto to "The Death State". It strikes me that no other state in this country has been quite so liberal in its pursuit of death as Oregon. That aside, however, we have the latest about the Oregon Health Plan.

Increasingly, cancer patients are being denied coverage for treatments that could slow or halt the progression of their cancers and are instead being offered coverage for doctor-assisted suicide. The Oregon Health Plan is overtaxed and can no longer provide care to everyone it covers. As a result, individuals who are deemed to be "futile cases" are being denied coverage for anything beyond assisted suicide.

What I find particularly ludicrous here is that cancer no longer carries the absolute death sentence it once did as we come closer to curing it altogether. At the very least, a patient can be offered more time to live and some are offered the hope of a cure. Apparently that is "futile". In almost every discussion about beating cancer we hear that it is crucial that the patient not give up hope, but here we have a state health plan telling those very patients that death is the better alternative.

And that is the crux of the issue: These poor patients are being told that they would be better off just ending their lives. They are being told that their lives are not precious enough to fight for and they are being robbed of hope. I’m sure that those who administer the health plan see offering assisted suicide as a kindness, but only because they do not recognize the dignity of personhood or how truly precious the gift of life is. Here we can see how poor our society is when we cannot even offer the simple charity of hope.
