Conscience Protection is now federal law!

Praise God! Congress has passed it and Pres Bush has signed it into law, the Hyde Weldon Conscience Protection Law. The Pres signed in on December 8th,2004. The Amendment to the bill is written:"1) None of the funds made available in this Act (the federal Health and Human Services Appropriation Bill for fiscal year 2005) may be made available to a Federal agency or program or to a State or local government if such agency program or government subjects any institutional or individual health care entity to discrimination on the basis that the health care entity does not provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions. 2) In this subsection, the term "health care entity" includes an individual physician or health care professional, a hospital, a provider sponsored organizationn, a health maintenance organization, a health insurance plan, and any other kind of health care facility, organization or plan." .

Also, more proof that the tide has turned toward life: Twenty-six members of Congress along with the American Center for Law and Justice have filed 'friends of the Court" briefs with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the Department of Justices' appeal to the decisions of federal Judge Richar Kopf. Judge Kopf declared the acts of Congress to be unconstitutional if you can imagine such outrageous arrogance. The Congress is the only group authorized by Article I Section I of the US Constitution, to create law, not federal Judges or the US Supreme Court. The Congress banned partial birth abortion which prolifers recognize as infanticide. Three liberal Judges declared the acts of Congress to be "unconstitutional" which plainly shows it is not the US Constitution that they are using as a reference! (Maybe they refer to the Communist Manifesto??)

Anyway, the righteous members of Congress decided to "fight fire with fire" and also use the Judicial system to present their cases. Twenty-six bold and wonderful people have signed on to the appeals to uphold the ban on infanticide. I am proud to list their names here:
Rep Robert Aderholt of Ala, Rep Todd Akin of Mo, Rep Bob Beauprez of Co, Rep Marsha Blackburn of Tn, Rep Roy Blunt of Mo, Rep Michael Burgess of Tx, Rep, Michael Collins of Ga, Rep Jo Ann Davis of Va, Rep Jo Ann Emerson of Mo, Rep Tom Feeney of Fl, Rep Jeff Flake, of Ariz, Rep Trent Franks of Ariz, Rep Scott Garrett of NJ, Rep Phil Gingrey of Ga, Rep Melissa Hart of Pa, Rep Ernest Istook of Okla, Rep Walter Jones Jr of NC, Rep Ric Keller of FL, Rep Marilyn Musgrove of Co, Rep Charles Pickering Jr of Miss, Rep Joseph Pitts of Pa, Rep Jim Ryun of Kan, Rep Chris Smith of NJ, Rep Mark Souder of Ind, Rep John Sullivan of Okla, Rep and Sen-elect Jim DeMint of SC. Praise God for everyone of these true Patriots who want to preserve the lives of future Americans and therefore the nation itself.

The excerpts from the brief are the government "has a vital and compelling interest in preventing the spread of the practice of abortion into infanticide." It also sharply criticizes the Roe decision, as treating fetuses as "non-persons" and it urges the Appeals Court not to "compound the fundamental injustice by extending Roe to deny the personhood of partially born children." Also, "partial birth abortion represents the beachhead of abortion's assault on postnatal life -the bridge between abortion and infanticide. " The only statement I would take exception to is calling it a 'bridge--IT IS ALREADY INFANTICIDE.

Is infanticide a Constitutional right? NO WAY! The US Constitution gives us the right to life!
