The Truest Measure of Any Society

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 2, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Planned Parenthood has been busted yet again, this time for actions that are not just unethical but inhumane. If they’re not taking donations to abort black babies, they’re issuing advice on how to commit fraud while aborting based on gender. Is this the United States–or is this China?

Bristol Palin posted the following on her blog:

Have you ever seen anyone actually happy about possibly killing an infant pre-born girl, even after admitting, “everything’s already pretty much developed?”

Watch this video of a woman who goes into a Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas and tells them that she only wants to terminate the pregnancy if she’s carrying a girl.

Does Planned Parenthood condemn this or condone this “gendercide?”

Here’s the video:

Bristol adds:

Lila Rose and her Live Action team are fearless in taking on Planned Parenthood, so learn more about them here. After Roe v. Wade is finally overturned, they’ll be remembered as heroes in the fight for life.

I appreciate Bristol’s boldness. Too many don’t even want to talk about defunding Planned Parenthood, much less overturning Roe v. Wade. God bless her for standing up for the most vulnerable among us.

This week the House of Representatives had an opportunity to take a bold stand also, but apparently they don’t have the strength that a young woman possesses when it comes to an issue that matters more than any other: life. Unbelievably, the House rejected a ban on gender-selective abortions.

CNN reports:

Congress took up one of the most divisive issues in politics Thursday as the House of Representatives rejected a controversial measure banning abortions based on the sex of a fetus.

In the House, 246 representatives backed the bill while 168 voted against it, leaving the proposal short of the two-thirds total necessary for passage. Most Republicans supported the measure; the majority of Democrats opposed it.

Supporters characterized the proposal as a necessary defense of the civil rights of unborn children; opponents called it part of a broader so-called war on women and an ongoing assault on legalized abortion.

There’s an elected official trying to ban soda, but we can’t get Congress to ban abortions based on gender? Sick!

So the majority of Democrats voted against this ban because they see it as a war on women. Really? In the video, the Planned Parenthood employee took no issue with aborting a female, so who’s really conducting a war on women?

Planned Parenthood has reportedly fired the employee in the hidden video and has stated they oppose gender-selective abortions; however, they also opposed the legislation to ban such selective abortions and called on Congress to reject it. I am increasingly disgusted that my tax dollars go to Planned Parenthood. They shouldn’t get one penny of federal funds–not one!

President Obama joined his friends in the abortion industry and also opposed the ban. The Weekly Standard reports:

National Right to Life legislative director Douglas Johnson was upset to learn Obama opposes the common-sense bill, telling LifeNews: “It is appalling, but not surprising, that President Obama now stands with the pro-abortion political committees and his Hollywood donors, rather than with the coerced women, and their unborn daughters, who are victimized in sex-selection abortions.”

Of course, there’s no surprise in his opposition. Since when has he stood up for life? He wouldn’t even vote to provide health care to babies born after a botched abortion, but America has chosen him to lead. We need to wake up!

This morning, as I was reading my Bible, something jumped out at me. Exodus 1 in The Message translation reads:

15-16 The king of Egypt had a talk with the two Hebrew midwives; one was named Shiphrah and the other Puah. He said, “When you deliver the Hebrew women, look at the sex of the baby. If it’s a boy, kill him; if it’s a girl, let her live.”

17-18 But the midwives had far too much respect for God and didn’t do what the king of Egypt ordered; they let the boy babies live. The king of Egypt called in the midwives. “Why didn’t you obey my orders? You’ve let those babies live!”

19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “The Hebrew women aren’t like the Egyptian women; they’re vigorous. Before the midwife can get there, they’ve already had the baby.”

20-21 God was pleased with the midwives. The people continued to increase in number—a very strong people. And because the midwives honored God, God gave them families of their own.

22 So Pharaoh issued a general order to all his people: “Every boy that is born, drown him in the Nile. But let the girls live.”

Clearly, the Lord was not pleased with the king’s decision to destroy those whom He created. In this case, the boys were going to be killed. On the other hand, God was pleased with those who honored Him by disobeying the king to protect life. The Bible says they disobeyed the king because they “had far too much respect for God.” I pray God touches our hearts and brings us to a place where we have more respect for Him than for the kings we’ve erected in our lives and the ideas that are accepted by man. I believe we will be held accountable, not only for the decisions we make that affect our own lives, but the people we elect to lead who make decisions that affect the lives of others–or whether others are allowed life at all.

Governor Palin has always had my respect and support because she walks the walk and understands what matters most. As much as she tackles the economy, energy, the size and scope of government, President Obama and his inability to lead effectively, she has never been silent on the issue of life. She knows that life is precious and worth defending. Perhaps this is another area in which she “went rogue” in 2008. This speech from the campaign trail is worth revisiting, and we can see that it is still fitting under current circumstances:

In this same spirit, as defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child?

Yes, every innocent life matters. Everyone belongs in the circle of protection. Every child has something to contribute to the world, if we give them that chance. There are the world’s standards of perfection … and then there are God’s standards, and these are the final measure. Every child is beautiful before God, and dear to Him for their own sake.

[…]

I listened when [Obama] defended his unconditional support for unlimited abortions. He said that a woman shouldn’t have to be – quote – “punished with a baby.” He said that right here in Johnstown –“punished with a baby” – and it’s about time we called him on it. The more I hear from Senator Obama, the more I understand why he is so vague and evasive on the subject. Americans need to see his record for what it is. It’s not negative or mean-spirited to talk about his record. Whatever party you belong to, there are facts you need to know.

[…]

In short, Senator Obama is a politician who has long since left behind even the middle ground on the issue of life. He has sided with those who won’t even protect a child born alive. And this exposes the emptiness of his promises to move beyond the “old politics.”

In both parties, Americans have many concerns to be weighed in the votes they cast on November fourth. In times like these, with wars and a financial crisis, it’s easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life. And it seems our opponent hopes that you will forget. Like so much else in his agenda, he hopes you won’t notice how radical his ideas and record are until it’s too late.

But let there be no misunderstanding about the stakes.

A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for activist courts that will continue to smother the open and democratic debate we need on this issue, at both the state and federal level. A vote for Barack Obama would give the ultimate power over the issue of life to a politician who has never once done anything to protect the unborn. As Senator Obama told Pastor Rick Warren, it’s above his pay grade.

For a candidate who talks so often about “hope,” he offers no hope at all in meeting this great challenge to the conscience of America. There is a growing consensus in our country that we can overcome narrow partisanship on this issue, and bring all the resources of a generous country to the aid of both women in need and the child waiting to be born.

President Obama clearly has not changed, but thank God neither has the Governor. America, however, definitely needs a change in leadership.

Here’s the speech, delivered in Johnstown, PA:

AKgasman Thanks Gov. Palin for Her Petro Tel Point Thomson Plan

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 2, 2012

In a very detailed response to this article at the Alaska Dispatch, commenter AKgasman  gives Governor Palin a shout out for her Petro Tel Point Thomson plan (emphasis mine):

Report: Alaska oil patch workforce growing at healthy clip by Alex DeMarban | May 31, 2012; “A new manufacturing directory says Alaska’s oil-and-gas workforce expanded 5 percent over the last year to 9,062 employees, a sign that new tax incentives for exploration continue to work some magic”. Emphases mine.

Alex your statement “but the debate will likely rage on as long as Prudhoe Bay’s oil production continues to decline”. The natural order of things is for an oil reservoir to decline after reaching its peak. Now Alex just what part of that can’t you wrap you mind around? The only reason Prudhoe Bay production is as low as it is due to the fact that Governor Parnell is obstructing DNR from carrying out DNR’s charge and trying to black mail the legislature into an oil tax reduction for the major oil companies. Parnell is prostituting the Governor Office for the major oil companies.
Parnell withdrew his special session oil tax bill because the House got wise to Parnell’s lies about the oil pipeline shutting down and Parnell faults statement about additional oil production thus would not again pass Parnell’s oil tax bill. The failure of the House to pass Parnell oil tax bill would have been a disaster for the oil companies and Parnell’s reelection.

However, if Governor Parnell would let DNR do their job, DNR would order the oil companies to not let the Prudhoe Bay oil reservoir gas pressure continue to decline any further, as Parnell is required to do but is not for the benefit of the oil companies. Second, order the oil companies to abide by the agreement they have with the AOGCC that the oil companies would not let the Prudhoe oil reservoir gas pressure fall below 3600 psi now 3100 psi and to rebuild the oil reservoir gas pressure back up to 3600 psi. Third once the oil reservoir gas pressure is rebuilt to 3600 psi then rebuild the gas pressure back up to 4400 psi, the discovery pressure, for maximum oil recovery and gas liquids as required by Alaska’s laws and Constitution.

The Prudhoe Bay producers can explore for and produce new gas use gas from somewhere (there is no proven gas available on the North Slope; the North Slope is gas Short! Or they can use power plant flue gas to rebuild the oil reservoir gas pressure. There is not enough proven gas on the Slope to produce all of the proven oil on the Slope. Flue gas appears to be the only viable option for rebuilding reservoir gas pressure, but there a lot of flue gas available. The sequestering of North Slope CO2 should make the greenies happy. Yes, Alex, after the Prudhoe Bay oil reservoir gas pressure is rebuilt and maintained, Prudhoe Bay will continue its long decline, 50 years to a 100 years.

Fourth DNR or AOOGCC needs to order the production of Prudhoe Bay gas cap liquids by recycling the gas cap gas to produce gas liquids like Governor Sarah Palin’s Petro Tel Point Thomson plan which maximizes the oil, gas liquids and condensate recovery. (Thank You Sarah Palin for presenting Petro Tel findings to the legislature, a 500 million barrel or $50 billion dollar difference. Alaska needs taxes and the Nation needs the oil which Exxon wants to waste. And Thank You Bill Walker for seeing that Point Thomson gets produced for the maximum benefit of Alaskans and the Nation. ). (Bill, you should run for governor so we can get rid of Parnell, the oil companie’s shill and obstructionist).

In recycling the produced gas is stripped of its gas liquids and the dry gas is then reinjected into the gas cap to extract more gas liquids. Gas liquids are worth more than oil. The gas cap gas pressure can be maintained by the injection of supplemental gas or power plant flue gas. The production of gas liquids from the Prudhoe Bay gas cap will require a gas liquids pipeline like Exxon original planned to do, to Cook Inlet via the Parks Highway.

You gasline advocates should refocus your demands to requiring a gas liquids pipeline off the North Slope. Because it is the only kind of a gasline that will be built to take gas off of the North Slope. Fairbanks, if not severed by a propane straddle plant on TAPS or on the Gas liquids line, will be served by a gas line from Cook Inlet.

Gas from the Nenana basin would be best for Fairbanks but in lieu of successful Nenana exploration, a gasline from Cook Inlet to Fairbanks and converted to the southern portion of the gas liquids line off the North Slope may be a solution. However, Cook Inlet gas may be the lowest cost solution. Unfortunately there is so much misdirection and dishonesty as well as stalling stalling by Parnell and the Oil Companies it difficult to proffer a correct solution.

I think Fairbanks Senator Paskvan, chairman of Senate Resources, should hold a round table teleconference conference as soon as possible and publicly explore the options for Fairbanks to obtain reasonably priced energy.

Personally, I am in favor of the construction a gasline from Cook Inlet to Fairbanks as soon as possible without waiting for the additional gas in Cook Inlet to be discovered. Contrary to what Parnell, Chenault, Hawker and the major oil companies say there is an abundance of gas in Cook Inlet; between 13 trillion cfs and 27 tcfs remains to be discovered as well another billion barrels of oil.

There is far more gas in the Cook Inlet basin than is necessary to support the Cook Inlet region and a gasline to Fairbanks and a gasline to the Dolin Mine (The Dolin mine will require more gas than Fairbanks) for the rest of this century as well as the next century. The gasline from Cook Inlet to Fairbanks could be reversed and used as the southern end of a gas liquids line off of the Slope to Cook Inlet and to take any surplus Nenana basin gas to Cook Inlet.

The Fairbanks market, by its self, is not large enough to support Nenana basin exploration.
