West Virginia is promoting “open for business” once again. Only, this time it’s not coal, steel, gas, oil or any industry which would enhance our prosperity and improve our economy.

This time it’s the business of murdering babies.

I find nothing fundamentally wrong with delineating the state of West Virginia from surrounding states if it means attracting additional visitors conducting business, vacationing or simply enjoying our beautiful landscape.

But when we allow an evil, liberal campaign designed to attract mothers from bordering states in which abortion has been legislatively restricted, by promoting the procedure in our state, it’s time for voters to draw the line in the sand.

What’s next Governor Jim Justice, a “buy one get one free” promotional coupon? Are you serious? This isn’t marketing a competitive deal on a new automobile or advertising a new Powerball lottery game! Have our leaders lost all sense of morality? Have we become so destitute of Godly values we now choose to openly side with propagators of evil, all for the sake of a dollar?

Well, the love of money is…

And nothing could be more evil than abortion providers marketing death and exploiting the ignorance of our legislators to promote infanticide for financial gain.

Except, maybe our elected officials allowing it to happen, just to preserve a vote.

My wife and I couldn’t believe our eyes as we traversed the 17th street bridge from WV into Ohio and observed a Lamar billboard which read, “Abortion is still legal in West Virginia”. The bottom of the billboard (placed in a very high traffic area) encouraged women to “Make an appointment at Woman’s Health Center of West Virginia by calling…” and it gave a phone number.

But wait! Isn’t the progressive argument on restricting federal funding for abortion clinics supposed to be about women’s health? You know, contraception, pap smears, those sorts of things?

Don’t pee down my leg and tell me it’s raining! It’s about money! And this marketing ploy proves it!

Recently, Ohio and Kentucky joined six other states in passing legislation that severely restricts abortions upon the detection of a heartbeat. But rather than reasonably looking at joining our sister states in legislation that supports the values of most of Appalachia, West Virginia liberal activists decided to “corner the market” in destroying the lives of the most innocent among us.

“The essential function of government is to protect the most vulnerable among us, those who don’t have a voice,” Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said as he signed the bill. “Government’s role should be to protect life from the beginning to the end.”

It seems government in Charleston sees it differently.

Social media and local reporting has exploded in protest over the billboards, which apparently span multiple areas of the state. One comment from a Fairmont, WV. resident spoke to the “heart” of the issue.

“14 weeks we heard our grandbabies heart beat,” said Theresa Singleton. “This baby is real, it’s human, it’s alive, it has a heartbeat.”

How hypocritical is it for liberals to stand firm on “progressive” science when it comes to climate change but totally disregard the science of Biology gauged by the presence of a heartbeat. Isn’t the “demise” of life determined by the absence of a heartbeat?

It would be funny, if not terribly sad, that if liberal scientists found even the tiniest of microbes on Mars, they would blast the airwaves that they’ve found “life” on another planet. I guess the definition of life is as ambiguous as the gender of a liberal here on earth.

They don’t want boundaries, unless it supports their ideology. They’re so corrupt.

So, do our tax dollars help fund this regional promotion of infanticide? Well, I checked it out!

According to the Guttmacher Institute, which once boasted ties to Planned Parenthood, 17 states use taxpayer money to fund abortion. West Virginia is one of them. Your tax dollars are funneled to Planned Parenthood via Medicaid, which isn’t protected by the Hyde Amendment, a legislative provision that bans federally funded abortions.

If it means removing limits on abortion – liberals will find a way. Don’t expect morality to be an obstacle.

On the face of this outrageous turn of events, it appears West Virginia leaders are willing to barter with the devil to perpetuate their power and influence. They’ve cast their lots with a cache of liberals from whom they hope to garner a future vote. Just like illegal immigration, if progressives can’t win in the theater of ideas, they’ll seek to win by attrition. Let’s run off citizens who represent Godly values and replace them with voters who will succumb to the wiles of malevolent politicians hoping to capture them in their nets of dependency and extort their votes.

Connect the dots, you say?

If liberal West Virginia politicians are unwilling to take a stand on protecting the life of an unborn baby, simply for fear of losing a vote, can they be trusted with anything? Anything at all?

So, what can you do? Well, it’s simple and is the answer to most of our Mountain State woes. Don’t boycott Lamar Advertising. Don’t attack the Women’s Health Center.

Go after the derelict politicians who are allowing this travesty to take place. Fire them with your vote and hire someone who’ll represent Godly values.

Only “You” can make West Virginia great again!

 

 

Steven J. Davis: Divine consequences for murder of the unborn

In response to New York States recent passing of their new abortion law.

Everything that you see on this planet has always been here. Look around you. Everything on this planet came from this planet.

There is not anything more here than was here when our creator spoke this planet into life.

With one exception!

Your spirit.

There is only one of you and there will only ever be one of you. He knew you before you were formed and He knew you in the spirit.

When we pass from this life, our body returns to the earth and our spirit returns to that spirit realm from which we were created – another dimension if you will.

Our body is only the vessel that allows us to do our part here, whatever that is. And it has always been here.

So,  if you in New York State or any other political body think that abortion is ok and there are no consequences, you are wrong.

You are taking the very spirit of God that dwells in His most valuable creation and returning it to Him as an insult. You are removing a part of this planet specifically set for a destiny and telling God,  “No thanks.  We have no need of that at this time.”

The consequence is this. You will be held accountable to the most high court as to your endorsement of rejecting God’s most precious creation. You will find your remaining life here on this planet full of internal turmoil and strife.

There will be nothing you can do to change what you have granted the people by your simple vote in a very temporary political office.

Remember, what man removes, God will replace.

It is and has always been that way.

God will not be told how the end should be for anyone individually or collectively. He will not be mocked. To kill or endorse the killing of the most innocent, for the sake of desire and want, is the darkest action man can take.

The most special part of God’s creation is you and the Love He used to create you.
Rejection of His Love is always met with the consequence of darkness and loss.

To endorse this action is the ultimate rejection of God.

As we watch these and other politicians determine the fate, not left for them to decide, we will continue to object and speak out in disgust and pain.

We will pray for all and love all, regardless of their transgressions.

God Bless the United States of America.

Roe v Wade is not settled law

God’s Word leaves no doubt when life begins.

Luke 1:41-42 shares the delightful account of Elizabeth (six months pregnant with her son, later to be known as John the Baptist), being visited in the hill country of Judea by her friend Mary (who had just been told by an angel she’d found favor with God and would give birth to our Savior, Jesus.)

“And it came to pass, that, when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, ‘Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.'”

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Roe v. Wade. In January, people from across our nation gathered in our nation’s capital for the annual March for Life.

It was heartening that among the estimated 100,000 plus participants, teenagers and young adults recognizing the impact the 1973 court decision has had on their generation carried signs reading, “One-third of my generation is missing,” referencing more than 1 million babies, on average, aborted each year in the U.S., per The Baptist Press.

What makes this particularly encouraging is that people younger than my generation of baby boomers are taking notice of the infanticide plaguing our nation for decades because of a progressive movement that incessantly challenges the standards of morality and principles of life God desires for our nation.

The acceptance of abortion in society is an example of liberals successfully achieving a foothold in an emotional issue and tenaciously working to challenge the argument’s viability. This is done by gradually improving the general standard of acceptability through attrition of the opposition’s resolve and desensitization to the moral consequences.

The court’s primary decision in Roe v. Wade held that a person may choose to have an abortion until a fetus becomes viable, based on the right to privacy contained in the due-process clause of the 14th Amendment.

The court then applied a controversial trimester time line designed to guide judges and lawmakers in balancing the mother’s health against the viability of the fetus.

In the first trimester, the woman had the exclusive right to pursue an abortion, not subject to state intervention. In the second trimester, the state couldn’t intervene unless the mother’s health was at risk.

Once the pregnancy enters the third trimester, the state could restrict the right to an abortion but must always include an exception if the health of the mother is at risk.

Let’s be clear. Choosing abortion simply to negate another poor choice in life is not a “health care” choice, as some argue. Since 1973, compromise and outright pandering has resulted in abortion available on demand and in many instances, merely for convenience.

Twice, in history, a decision to destroy children before they could fulfill their life’s mission was employed. Both followed the emergence of a “deliverer.”

During the birth of Jesus, King Herod, fearing for his kingdom, sought to destroy the Christ child. Unable to engage the Magi in locating the child, he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem who were 2 years old and younger.

In retaliation for plagues Egypt endured following Pharaoh’s refusal to let the Israelites go at the prompting of God’s chosen deliverer, Moses, Pharaoh ordered every Hebrew boy to be “thrown into the Nile.” Sadly, Egypt suffered from his decree.

The return of our Deliverer is approaching. Righting this inherently wrong decision to destroy life is not an option we can ignore if given the opportunity.

Mark Caserta: DOJ to investigate Planned Parenthood

16 Dec

December 15, 2017

 

The abortion of an innocent, unborn child is a dagger in the heart of God’s gift of life to His children. It’s unfathomable continuation stabs deeply into man’s flesh, leaving behind a wound defiled with the blood of the most unblemished among us.

One hundred years ago, Margaret Sanger, an advocate for women’s reproductive rights and a vocal eugenics enthusiast, opened her first birth-control clinic in the United States and founded an organization known as Planned Parenthood.

Per The Heritage Foundation, today Planned Parenthood offers a “wide range” of women’s health care as justification for taxpayers providing more than 40 percent of their funding. Data show that Planned Parenthood is now the country’s largest abortion provider with affiliates performing more than 300,000 abortions per year and has become an organization deeply embedded in controversy.

Per reports from multiple news organizations, including The New York Times, the Justice Department recently launched a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices and the sale of fetal tissue derived from abortions – for profit.

In a letter, reportedly first obtained by Fox News last month, Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd has formally requested unredacted documents from the committee who led the congressional probe into the women’s health organization following a 2015 undercover operation by activists David Daleiden, and Sandra Merritt, of the pro-life Center for Medical Progress.

During the investigation, both Daleiden and Merritt recorded undercover video while posing as researchers interested in purchasing fetal tissues from Planned Parenthood. The request for the information was made to the same Senate Judiciary Committee, whose chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, referred Planned Parenthood, along with other providers to the FBI for investigation last December, according to The Hill.

Like millions of Americans, I had opportunity to view many of the undercover videos produced during the investigation and found them nothing short of horrifying. I was sickened my tax dollars were helping support this wretched practice which has been essentially ignored over the years by Democrats and Republicans alike.

In a statement to Fox News, Daleiden provided some details on the videos and shared investigative findings.

“After Planned Parenthood’s top doctors were caught on camera casually negotiating the sale of aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers and brains, two congressional investigations confirmed there were ‘systematic’ violations of federal law in Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby parts business,” he said. “The FBI’s investigation of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-funded, criminal abortion enterprise is long overdue.”

Planned Parenthood vehemently denies the allegations brought about by the undercover video. And while it’s true Daleiden and Merritt were indicted in 2016 on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record, it was related to presenting a fake California driver’s license with the intent to defraud, and had nothing to do with the video content, per The New York Times.

Today’s abortion ideology is a result of progressivism working to expand “choice” in every area of our lives. Tragically, the unborn are paying the ultimate price.

May God convict our hearts and give us wisdom as we fight to end this madness.

Mark Caserta: Abortion atrocities must be stopped

4 Sep

Mark Caserta: Free State Patriot Editor

9.4.15

=================================

In light of the recent exposure of even more horrific business practices committed by our nation’s largest abortion provider, I would be hard pressed to name an organization any more insidious than Planned Parenthood.

Following a Los Angeles judge dissolving a temporary restraining order on the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the group recently released its eighth investigative video exposing the reprehensible tactics employed by Planned Parenthood to “profit” from its abortion services.

pp

In the video, StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admitted that her company received “intact” aborted baby bodies from the abortion clinics with whom they work. In the dialogue with CMP investigative reporters, Dyer coldly shares the fiscal “advantages” and watch-outs of shipping intact baby parts.

“Oh, yeah, I mean if you have intact cases – which we’ve done a lot – so we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” Dyer said while dining and sipping wine. “Tell the lab it’s coming,” she giggled about shipping the baby’s heads. “They don’t want to open the box, go, ‘Oh God!'”

Until earlier this month, StemExpress, a biotech company in northern California, partnered with Planned Parenthood to obtain aborted baby parts for medical research. In the secretly recorded video, Dyer’s callous disregard for the murdered children was ghastly. Such heartless demeanor makes one wonder just how far Planned Parenthood has gone during an abortion procedure to preserve the baby’s parts for profit.

In a press release accompanying the video, CMP suggests the practice might include the ruthless, illegal procedure known as “live birth abortion.” The release read: “Feticidal chemicals like digoxin cannot be used to kill the fetus in a tissue procurement case, so a fetus delivered intact for organ harvesting is likely to be a born-alive infant.”

The video also shows Dyer acknowledging that not only do abortion clinics prove fatal for babies, but they also may endanger women. Dyer admitted “rampant, rampant problems with bacteria” in certain clinics where Planned Parenthood is involved.

Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding during fiscal year 2013-2014, according to it and news media sources. This amounted to more than $1.4 million per day, in government grants, contracts and Medicaid reimbursements. And while liberals boast that only a small portion of these funds are used for abortions, understand that when a business receives money, regardless of the department, it relieves financial pressure on the entire organization. So in fact, this federal funding is integral to Planned Parenthood’s infanticide.

What sort of society would continue to condone such abhorrent behavior? Have we become so desensitized to death that destroying the lives of the unborn and shipping boxes of baby’s heads for sale doesn’t shock us anymore? Have we become so complacent with our liberal, dysfunctional society that we’ll commute such wretched behaviors in the name of “progressivism”?

A society which tolerates these atrocities is doomed for ensuing wickedness far beyond imagination – wickedness which our children will face because of our apathy.

It’s expedient that Americans willing to stand up against this abominable behavior, propagated by progressives, rise to be heard.

Mark Caserta: Abortion has become big business in the US

30 Jul

Frankenstein ethics?

Mark Caserta: Free State Patriot Editor

Jul. 30, 2015 @ 12:01 AM

In 2011, more than 730,000 legal induced abortions were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 49 reporting areas. The actual number is probably more since states aren’t required by law to report these murders as part of the CDC’s Abortion Surveillance Report.

However, using the CDC’s statistics, the ratio of abortions to live births is around 219 per 1,000 births.

Planned Parenthood, an organization partially funded by your tax dollars, is the nation’s largest single provider of abortions in the United States. And it is indeed, fulfilling the vision of its founder, Margaret Sanger. Sanger, while lauded by some as a woman of “valor” (including Hillary Clinton) had some very unsavory opinions about race, birth control and abortion.

As a eugenicist, Sanger encouraged the sterilization of individuals whom she felt had “less desirable qualities.” Her disdain for blacks, minorities, the diseased and the disabled birthed an abortion business that’s afforded our nation a convenient way to “eliminate” an unwanted child.

One of Sanger’s infamous quotes epitomizes her racist’s convictions.

“[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

In a column written by Susan A. Cohen for the Guttmacher Institute, the former pro-abortion research division of Planned Parenthood, she shares a disturbing statistic involving the impact of abortion in our inner cities and how it is indeed fulfilling Sanger’s aberrant vision.

In the piece, Cohen reports the abortion rate for black women in the United States is nearly five times that for white women. And despite anti-abortion efforts to wage a campaign against abortion around this fact, aggressive marketing by abortion providers continues in minority communities.

Planned Parenthood clinics are strategically planted in minority communities targeting blacks and impoverished minority groups, and reportedly, is the leading cause of death for the black community.

But it even gets more despicable.

In two recently released stunning undercover videos, a national leader of Planned Parenthood is filmed admitting that the abortion provider uses the illegal partial birth abortion procedure to protect and sell “intact” fetal body parts.

In the videos, produced by the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood, admits that in order to ensure the baby’s body parts are in “good condition” and not damaged during the gruesome abortion procedure, some of the abortionists will deliver the baby “breech” or feet first, and then suck out the brains, killing the child.

Planned Parenthood Vice President of Communications Eric Ferrero released a response to the videos calling them “heavily edited” and released by “activists who have been widely discredited.”

If there is anything more reprehensible than profiting from the death of an unborn child, I’m not sure what it is.

Under the guise of civil liberty, liberals have succeeded in desensitizing many Americans to abortion. But Planned Parenthood is helping make it big business.

Mark Caserta: Abortion is the Holy Grail of liberalism

Progressives support no limitations

stop abortion
 Want to get involved?
““““““““““““““““““““““““““““

Do liberals support any limits on taking the life of an unborn baby?

A recent attempt by an Associated Press reporter to corner Rand Paul on his stance on abortion triggered a much-needed firestorm around the issue.

While giving a press conference in New Hampshire last week, Senator Paul was asked to state definitively which exceptions to a ban on abortion he would support. Paul was quick to turn the table on the reporter.

“You go back and you ask (U.S. Rep.) Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s okay with killing a seven-pound baby that is just not yet born yet. Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when she’s willing to protect life,” he said. “When you get an answer from Debbie, come back to me.”

Little Debbie, D-Fla., didn’t like being called out, so the congresswoman was quick to respond.

“Here’s an answer,” she said in an emailed statement. “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul.”

So, let me see if I understand the progressive position on the question of abortion.

So in the third trimester, when a baby could be around 6 or 7 pounds and viably be birthed, is it permissible to inject a lethal dose of Digoxin into the heart to give the baby a fatal heart attack? Is that the accepted position of liberal Democrats?

What about a partial birth abortion, where the baby is birthed feet first, but just before the head emerges from the cervix, the abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a pair of surgical scissors and suctions the baby’s brain with a powerful suction machine?

What about live birth abortion, where a baby is “accidentally” born due to a botched abortion and refused medical attention so it will die as planned? Is that type of murder acceptable to liberals?

Which one of you would be first to insert the needle into the baby’s heart, taking its life? Which one of you would be first to puncture the base of the skull? Which one of you would stand idly by as a baby lay crying for attention and allow it to die a slow and agonizing death?

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and all of uncleanness,” Matthew 23:27.

I submit there is no greater sin against humanity than to take the life of the most frail and innocent among us.

Every mother has felt the movement of the baby while in her womb. Modern technology now enables the child to be seen in 4D, just as they would appear lying in their crib, cooing and babbling with life.

Yet, murdering the unborn continues to be the “Holy Grail” of liberalism.

It’s time to end this modern day holocaust. It’s time for progressives to stop lobbying for lawful infanticide.

It’s time to return to Godly, conservative values.
