Is nothing private anymore?

If the federal government can support abortion rights, why can’t it also support light bulb choice, Sen. Rand Paul asked Thursday morning.

And don’t even get him started about his toilet.

“Frankly, my toilets don’t work in my house, and I blame you and people like you who want to tell me what I can install in my house,” Paul said. He added, “I find it insulting.”

Vanderbilt University is the subject of a federal complaint filed today by officials with the Alliance Defense Fund over requiring nursing students to participate in abortions.

ADF, a pro-life legal group, filed the complaint with the Department of Health and Human Services saying it illegally forces the students to do the abortions despite receiving $300 million in federal tax dollars each year. Federal law prohibits grant recipients from forcing students or health care workers to participate in abortions contrary to their religious beliefs or moral convictions.

The complaint was filed in behalf of a fourth-year nursing student at another university who wants to apply to Vanderbilt’s nurse residency program but won’t do so because of the abortion policy. She says Vanderbilt admission forms require her to promise to participate in abortions.

     I have listened carefully this afternoon to the news and the word from the White House with regard to the shooting in Little Rock. AR at a US Army Recruiting office, which has left a recruit who had just finished boot camp dead. I have heard the Team Obama comment on the murder of Dr. George Tiller, the Dr. Death of late term abortions, calling it a tragedy, and not the manner we should settle differences.

     I have even heard that Attorney General Eric Holder has reacted to the murder of Dr. Tiller by sending FBI agents to various “high profile” pro choice sites to provide protection coverage. Yet, there is no news of any increased security at our Nation’s recruitment offices.

     A motive for the 51 year old suspect in Dr. Tiller’s murder has not been revealed as of yet ( he has been labeled a “anti-government militia member), and abortion opponents are concerned about its affect, particularly in light of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s recent report about right wing “extremists”. But the shooting in Little Rock seems to completely dismissed. Why? Perhaps because this shooting contradicts Ms. Napolitano’s claims!

     Our President, in not making a statement regarding the military shooting while commenting on Dr. Tiller’s tragedy, further exemplifies his disdain for our military heroes!

 

Note: Dr. Tiller is responsible for approximately 60,000 abortions; he was also a key supporter of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, now the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Text of President Barack Obama’s commencement address Sunday as the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., as released before delivery by the White House. The Rev. John Jenkins is the school’s president. The Rev. Theodore Hesburgh is Jenkins’ predecessor.

___

Thank you, Father Jenkins, for that generous introduction. You are doing an outstanding job as president of this fine institution, and your continued and courageous commitment to honest, thoughtful dialogue is an inspiration to us all.

Good afternoon, Father Hesburgh, Notre Dame trustees, faculty, family, friends and the class of 2009. I am honored to be here today and grateful to all of you for allowing me to be part of your graduation.

I want to thank you for this honorary degree. I know it has not been without controversy. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but these honorary degrees are apparently pretty hard to come by. So far I’m only 1 for 2 as president. Father Hesburgh is 150 for 150. I guess that’s better. Father Ted, after the ceremony, maybe you can give me some pointers on how to boost my average.

I also want to congratulate the class of 2009 for all your accomplishments. And since this is Notre Dame, I mean both in the classroom and in the competitive arena. We all know about this university’s proud and storied football team, but I also hear that Notre Dame holds the largest outdoor 5-on-5 basketball tournament in the world — Bookstore Basketball.

Keyes, priest arrested at Notre Dame protest

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Former Republican presidential hopeful Alan Keyes, a Roman Catholic priest and 19 others were arrested Friday after marching onto the University of Notre Dame campus to protest President Barack Obama’s planned commencement speech.

The arrests marked the third straight Friday that protesters have been detained. They are angry about the school’s decision to give Obama, who supports abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research, an honorary degree and have him speak at Sunday’s commencement.

“Notre Dame is arresting a priest,” the Rev. Norman Weslin, founder of the Lambs of Christ abortion protest group, said as Notre Dame security personnel put plastic restraints on his wrists Friday. “Why are you arresting a priest for trying to stop the killing of a baby? You’ve got it all backward.”

Weslin, 78, who has been arrested dozens of times at abortion clinic blockades, was carried off on a stretcher. He and two others were charged with resisting law enforcement.

NOTE: I believe that it is not the President giving a speech at Notre Dame, it is the honor of an honorary degree from the Catholic university that is causing the uproar.

     A recent Gallup poll shows that more Americans take a “Pro-Life” stance with regard to abortion issues, for the first time in the polls.

Obama says the “Freedom of Choice Act” repeal, which would force doctors to perform procedures they are morally opposed to, is not one of his Priorities. Add that to the delay in giving the Gitmo detaiinees a “fair trial” or release them demands of the Left, which he had promised he would do, and his base is quickly becoming disillusioned with the Obamessiah!

President Obama made clear on Wednesday that a controversial abortion rights law is not among his top priorities, despite a campaign promise that signing the bill would be his first act in office.

In his third primetime news conference marking his 100th day as president, Obama said he was more interested in finding ways to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, especially teen pregnancies.

“The Freedom of Choice Act is not my highest legislative priority,” Obama said. “The most important thing we can do is to tamp down some of the anger surrounding the issue to focus on those areas we can agree on.”

That was a sharp departure from his comments at an address before Planned Parenthood in the summer of 2007.

“The first thing I will do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act,” he said at the time.

     The Senate is scheduled to vote on the confirmation of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as Pres. Barack Obama’s choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services. Even if you are pro-Choice on the abortion issues, her support of late term abortions is tantamount to the infanticide that Pres. Obama endorsed in the Illinois State Legislature.

    Contact your SENATORS to vote NO on Sebelius !!

Caroline Kennedy-to-Vatican rumor sparks Catholic outrage

Reaction to Caroline Kennedy’s potential appointment as U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican continued to sour yesterday as one conservative Catholic group called the possible nomination “a calculated insult to the Holy See.”

“It’s inappropriate to appoint someone who pretends to be a Catholic but rejects the fundamental teachings of the Church,” said C.J. Doyle, executive director of the Massachusetts Catholic Action League.

Buzz continued unabated yesterday that Kennedy was under consideration by President Obama for the post, despite the fact she is pro-choice. U.S. Catholic officials are closely scrutinizing the appointment.
