Obama pays back the trial lawyers / NBC says no to Obama ad - it is too pro-life / More on the abortion president / Pledge Protection Act / Virtually no road construction in "Stimulus" bill / Stimulus cost is $2700 per person / Force doctors to perform abortions? / Iraqi Christians need our help


PAY BACK THE TRIAL LAWYERS- The first bill to be signed by President Barack Obama was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act which effectively nullifies a 2007 Supreme Court decision that denied Lilly Ledbetter the right to sue her employer years after she left. The bill was actually written by trial lawyers and was introduced in Congress to allow lawsuits on "discriminatory" pay to women.

THE ABORTION PRESIDENT - NBC has rejected a pro-life Super Bowl commercial that praises President Barack Obama's mother for not aborting the first African-American president. The video has risen in popularity on YouTube with nearly a million viewings. The commercial emphasized that the baby she carried was at high social risk, with a broken home, a father who would abandon him and a single mother. The commercial begins with an ultrasound image of a baby moving in his mother's womb. The ad was financed by Fidelis, a Catholic group. View ad here.

MORE ABORTION PRESIDENT - President Obama's pro-abortion agenda is being made very clear by him. Read the "reproductive choice" section of the new White House website. It states that the new President. "... has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Administration." See site

Pledge Under God PLEASE ACT NOW - Congressman Todd Akin is once again preparing to introduce the Pledge Protection Act which would defend "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance to our nation's flag. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has sat on the atheist lawsuit to remove "under God" from the Pledge in hopes that the Justice Department under Barack Obama will agree with them that it is unconstitutional. We must be ready to defend "under God" in the Pledge. The Religious Freedom Coalition has a new social networking site to form groups to defend "under God" at Please register to help at that site!

NO NEW ROADS IN STIMULUS - Congressman Eric Cantor, the Minority Whip, stated that only 12 cents on the dollar of the $900 billion stimulus could be considered as being spent on infrastructure. Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma in his analysis said only $30 billion of the $900 billion was for roads and bridges. Where does the majority of the money go? The rest of the billions of dollars is pay-off for groups that helped elect Democrats. ACORN will get $4.9 billion. There is $2.7 billion for embryonic research which kills unborn babies for their parts; $150 billion to double the Department of Education's funding; $1.5 billion to build "green schools," and more. Almost 90% of the bill is pork to liberal groups and ideals that will not stimulate the economy.

STIMULUS COST - The "Stimulus Bill" comes at a cost of $2,700 for each man, woman and child in the United States if we all paid up this year. But our government is going to borrow this money from the Chinese and the Saudis with initial interest of $45 billion per year. Odds are that our government will never be able to pay the principle and our great great grandchildren will still be paying interest on the loans.

FORCE DOCTORS TO DO ABORTIONS? - Yes, says Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union. The two groups are suing the Department of Health and Human Services over regulations to reinforce federal laws that protect doctors from being forced to participate in abortion and other procedures that are against their religious beliefs or conscience. Dr. David Stevens, executive director of the Christian Medical Association said, "We consider the right of conscience to be the biggest issues we face." Read more.
