Census Bureau Data: Abstinence Education Reduces Teen Abortion Rate

VoteYesForLife.com features a compelling and telling graph of data from the Population Division of the U.S. Census Bureau.

Faith-Based Coalition Works to Stop Govt Health Care

A coalition of some of the nation’s largest conservative, faith-based groups say they plan to “stop” Congress from rushing to pass the health care bill, objecting to what they see as lack of protection for human life in the current bill.

Judge Declares Dependence on God Unconstitutional

A Kentucky law requiring the state Office of Homeland Security to stress “dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth” was struck down as unconstitutional on Wednesday, even though the Kentucky Constitution itself says, “We, the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and religious liberties we enjoy…”

Artists summoned by Chancellery for national service

The “state run media” and liberal blogs were aghast a few weeks ago when Rush Limbaugh took the time to point out that the acronym NAZI is short for National Socialism (Nationalsozialismus), a political and economic movement lead by Adolf Hitler; and that a head to head comparison of Nazi beliefs and actions matched best with the modern American Democrat Party.

CFL Recess Rally: Health Care Question 6

Health care question #6 at the Citizens for Liberty Town Hall and Recess Rally on Saturday August 22: “Every American company has a right to make profit. We are a capitalist society. What gives YOU the constitutional right to pick one company over another to be winners or losers. We can fix health care without creating another government entity, we can pass laws that address tort reform, pre-existing conditions and high premiums. We do not need a government option to compete with other companies; they’re already competing. Would you vote for a bill that has a government option?”

NHS Nightmare: 1 Million Patients Receive ‘Appalling’ Care

President Obama says government health care is wonderful–so wonderful he’s determined to force it on the American people. The one million patients who received “appalling” care from the British National Health Service might beg to differ.

In British Govt Health Care, No Room in the Inn for Pregnant Women

Under England’s glorious socialized health care system women are giving birth in elevators and toilets, doing their part to help maintain Karl Marx’s reputation standing tall. What an honor it must be to sacrifice in this way to advance the Glorious Revolution.

Bad Government Raises Health Care Costs

The main cause of rising health care costs is bad and stupid government. By “government”, I mean the politicians, the bureaucrats, the laws, regulations, policy rulings, and court rulings that influence health care systems, resources, and costs.
