FPC Media Blitz: Advocates for Life Triumph, Mayo Clinic Doctor Admits Abortion Harms Women, Homosexual Twice as Likely to Seek Treatment
By Nathan A. Cherry
Below are some of the headlines and stories making news across our country and across the world.
“Italian high court finds no difference between traditional family, cohabiting couple” – Obviously the Italian High Court has not been paying attention to recent sociological studies which show the traditional family as having a positive impact on society as opposed to single-family, cohabiting families, and same-sex families. Next time, they should do their homework.
“Truth and Advocates for Life Triumph” – Townhall columnist Ken Blackwell speaks on the Obama health-reform policy and its hidden agenda of abortion on demand paid for by the American people. He says, “Opposition to federally-funded abortion is a bridge issue, bringing together Americans of all parties and ethnic and religious backgrounds.” President Obama is just plain delusional if he thinks that the American people are interested in paying for other people’s abortions. And we’re not near as naïve as he thinks; we have read his proposal and know that abortion on demand is in the policy.
“UN Health Data Show Liberal Abortion Laws Lead to Greater Maternal Death” – Despite Planned Parenthood’s attempt to assure us that there is no significant link between widespread, legalized abortion and women’s health, all the evidence says otherwise. And now, even Planned Parenthood themselves can’t seem to deny the truth any longer, coming out to say that there does seem to be a link between abortion and maternal death rates. Maybe our government will take Planned Parenthood out of their pocket and start looking out for the health and well-being of women; and not the health and well-being of their own bank accounts.
“Mayo Clinic Doctor Admits Abortions Hurt Women, Cause Premature Births” – A doctor at the renowned Mayo clinic has recently published a study showing the connection between abortion and premature birth, which can also lead to cerebral palsy. This is just one of the many ways women put their health and the health of future children in jeopardy by abortion. So let’s see, doctors at the Mayo clinic say abortion harms women, Planned Parenthood says abortion harms women, a large body of empirical evidence says that abortion harms women. I am not sure what else our lawmakers need in order for them to admit that abortion harms women.
“Study: Homosexuals Twice as Likely to Seek Mental Health, Substance Abuse Treatment” – This study out of UCLA shows that homosexuals seek treatment at a rate of twice that of heterosexuals. A quick glance of facts from the study, “The study of 2074 people interviewed in the California Health Interview Survey found that 48.5% of homosexual and bisexual individuals reported receiving psychiatric or drug abuse treatment in the past year as compared to 22.5% of heterosexuals.” How long will people continue to try and convince us that this lifestyle is good, and normal, and healthy?
“Homosexual U.K. Documentarian Says Gay Lifestyle a “Sewer” of Casual Degrading Sex, Drug Abuse, Misery”
Bishop Harry Jackson spoke at the Pastor’s Summit on Marriage hosted by the Family Policy Council of West Virginia back in January. He offered a clarion call to the Church at West Virginia to graciously stand as prophetic voices for culture. Don’t be surprised if you see Bishop Jackson come back to the Mountain State shortly.
For now, Bishop Jackson is lending leadership to efforts in his own backyard. About a month ago, the City Council of the District of Columbia adopted a measure that would ratify same-sex “marriages” performed in other jurisdictions. Bishop Jackson outlines the implications such a measure poses for the rest of the country:
The bill is scheduled for a final vote. If fully ratified, it then moves to the Congress for review. The review could be as short as 30 days, if uncontested by Congress, or much longer if the bill is challenged. This means that a national congressional debate on gay marriage could begin as soon as this month. Naturally, such a debate would draw citizens from around the nation to contact their congressman.
Read the rest of Bishop Jackson’s piece again sounding the call for churchgoers to stand for marriage.
