Stand up for Religious Freedom rally That coincided with 160 simultaneous rallies in cities across the U.S. on June 8 to commemorate the day James Madison introduced the Bill of Rights into the First Congress on June 8, 1789. …Both the mandate and the compromise are a violation of the First Amendment protections of religious belief. …a government overreaching the power of the people and their human rights. …”those of us here today aren‟t just Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Evangelists, Mormons; we are Patriots.” Don Feder

The Pill: How does it work? Is it SAFE?
The Billions of dollars at stake in the marketing of the pill and the power of birth control industry to lobby both lawmakers and the media can
easily divert the average person from the truth.
What are the COMMON SIDE-EFFECTS of the PILL?
HEART & BLOOD
Blood clots High BP
IS THE PILL SAFER THAN PREGNANCY?
NO. The health risks of the pill outweighs by far the risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman’s health. Any claim to the contrary is based on erroneous comparisons between healthy women on the pill and the women who DO NOT receive normal care during pregnancy.
“Make no mistake, the Pill and the IUD are abortifacients.”
On the debate on Family Planning National Abortion Federation (NAF) June 1985 Congress, Boston, USA
“EXPERTS who deny the abortifacient properties of the pill and IUD have actually transferred the beginning of life from fertilization to implantation or nidation. This is what the ACOG ( & FIGO) has done so, they have formed the ‘Association of Obstetrician & GYN for Life’

generally what he means is he is against :
CRIMINAL AB 1- SURGICAL ABORTION
Founded in 1972, Catholics For Free Choice, a nominally Catholic, pro-abortion organization ….
However, much of the money was actually donated for “the organization’s work to counter efforts of the Roman Catholic Church to limit legal access to reproductive health care” According to General Service Foundation…

WHAT PRO-CHOICE LAWYERS SAY:
On the opposition to the Louisiana Law Banning ABORTION:
Because nearly ALL birth control devices, except
the diaphragm and condom, operate between
the time of conception… and implantation…, the statute would appear to ban most contraceptives.”
RUTH COLKER Tulane Law School Professor Dallas Morning News, 23A, February 6, 1992
“…IUDs and low dose birth control pills act as abortifacients.”
ATTY. FRANK SUSSMAN
Lawyer for Missouri abortion clinics Arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court April 27, 1989 * Evidently even these pro-choice lawyers believe and understand that life begins, without doubt with the fusion of the egg & sperm or at fertilization.
Legal Abortion – NOT “Safe” for Women
20% of maternal deaths are due to abortions, even in those situations where abortion is legal… there is a question whether “safe” abortion is safe.” Dr. Gunta Lazdane
European Regional Adviser WHO on Reproductive Health and Research Washington Conference, May 2004
Speaking yesterday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee in response to questions put by Smith and Fortenberry, Clinton stated “ Reproductive health includes access to abortion that I believe should be safe, legal and rare.” Tom McFeely, April 23, 2009
Case Scenario July 2008
A 70 year old female patient, retired government official, was admitted for a severe pelvic infection. OnTHE PHILIPPINE work-up, it was discovered that the source
of the infection was an IUD (neglected in the last 30 years) - embedded in her uterus which was eventually removed by surgery.

DOWN THE SLIPPERY SLOPE
By Valerie Riches
“The Netherlands is the first country to legalize euthanasia since the Nazis.”
Monika Scheihoff, Doctor, criticizing a decision by the Dutch parliament to legalize mercy killings
About 1.5 million babies are aborted in Currently–1.3 million the U.S. each year The annual worldwide total = 40M.
Since the infamous U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision on Roe vs Wade on Jan. 22, 1973 – millions of lives have been exterminated.
“It ABORTION IS DONE ON PRACTICALLY ALL STAGES did not solve our OF it just problems, PREGNANCY SINCE IT IS STILL LEGAL. created new ones…”
VIII “Daughters of Jerusalem Do not weep for me ; weep instead for yourselves and for your children, for indeed the days are coming when people will say, „Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed.‟ At the time the People will say the the Mountains, „Fall upon us!‟‟ And to the hills, „Cover us!‟‟ … JESUS on the road to calvary

private but most of all SACRED It must used in the context of marriage and should be a loving, bodily , pleasurable expression of complimentarity a permanent self-giving of man and woman to each other which is open to fruition … Therefore fornication is WRONG
IS CHASTITY A MEDICAL ISSUE? by Ross S. Olson MD
CHASTITY means : ONE PARTNER FOR LIFE. One Partner for Life is the Ideal for Sexual Health
1. There would be essentially no sexually transmitted diseases. 2. There would be fewer "unwanted" pregnancies. 3. It is psychologically healthier. 4. It removes the cause of a great deal of poverty and economic difficulty. 5. Many other social problems are reduced. The 6. Sex is ultimately more enjoyable when it is exclusive. Anything casual loses significance.
as well as being at child in a stable two parent home does better psychologically and academically
