Is nothing private anymore?

A pro life group’s founder’s house vandalized.
Personhood USA Founder and President Keith Mason and his wife Jennifer have three young children from eight years old on down, and a fourth child due next month.  That didn’t stop pro-abortion vandals from throwing a heavy rock through his front door window at 1:30 am, or from spraypainting his house with vulgarities and images of coat hangers.”

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.

     After bringing the last few handful of votes to the table in the ObamaCare debate, Rep. Bart Stupak of Michigan has decided that he will not seek another term. Shortly after noon today, he will make his formal announcement.

     The spin throughout the day will be like a soap opera.

WASHINGTON – Support from his own party in doubt, President Barack Obama summoned more than a dozen House Democrats to the White House Thursday, pleading with them to put aside their qualms, seize a historic moment and vote for his massive health care overhaul.

It’s the opportunity of a generation, he told them — and a chance to revive the party’s agenda after his rough first year in office.

In back-to-back meetings in the Oval Office and Roosevelt Room, Obama urged uneasy rank-and-file moderates and progressives to focus on the positives rather than their deep disappointment with parts of the bill. The lawmakers said Obama assured them the legislation was merely the first step, and he promised to work with them in the future to improve its provisions.

“The president very pointedly talked about how important this is historically,” said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., “how he needs our help.” Obama told them that “‘this is an opportunity, it’ll give us momentum'” on other issues, the congressman said.

     Just weeks after the “abortion” controversy that swirled around Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl ad for Focus On Family, the pro-life, pro-family organization is once again the “focus” of the Women’s Media team:

The National Collegiate Athletic Association has removed an FOTF banner ad from one of its websites this week. The governing body of college sports explains that it came to the decision after receiving complaints, including from some of its members, that FOTF’s views on same-sex relationships are in conflict with the NCAA’s policy on sexual orientation.

But FOTF says there is no reason to pull the ad, which it describes as “benign” and non-political.

The ad pictures a dad holding his young son with the caption: “All I want for my son is for him to grow up knowing how to do the right thing.” It includes the address to the FOTF’s website and the title, “Celebrate Family. Celebrate Life.”

“Have we really become a society where it’s considered distasteful and controversial for a dad to hope the best for his son?” asked Gary Schneeberger, vice president of ministry communications at Focus on the Family, according to “If so, we have a lot of soul-searching to do as a nation.”

     The openness and transparency that Speaker Pelosi promised on the healthcare legislation is disappearing, and with that, so is the public’s right to see the changes being made behind closed doors to “appease the rank and file”:

A vote on House health care legislation may face a delay as Democratic leaders admitted Friday they don’t have the support of 218 Caucus members, but any changes in the legislation to appease wavering members could force Speaker Nancy Pelosi to break a pledge to post the final bill online for 72 hours before lawmakers vote. 

The House was expected to vote on the bill as early as Saturday, but Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland said Friday morning that the vote could slip to Sunday or early next week because Democratic leaders haven’t secured the 218 votes needed for passage. Republicans are unanimously opposed to the sweeping legislation..

House Democratic leaders faced down a revolt from Hispanics in the Caucus who say they don’t want a prohibition supported by the White House but not in the House bill that restricts illegal immigrants from buying insurance through a government-established exchange. A ban exists in the Senate version of health insurance reform.

But Pelosi and others are also working furiously to finalize language to restrict federal funding of abortion demanded by pro-life Democrats. Democrats are looking to add the new provisions as part of the debate “rule.” 

The House Rules Committee was meeting Friday to craft the parameters for debate and the head of the committee, Rep. Louise Slaughter, has indicated that none of the 104 amendments submitted will be added.
