HAPPY NEW YEAR!

California Right to Life Committee.

 

We pray that you are well and filled with the energy needed to continue the cause of defending life in 2016. Here are a few interesting items to start off the year:

 

  1. Giving recognition to the 43rd Anniversary of Roe V Wade to be commemorated with the yearly Walk for Life in San Francisco: please visit our webpage at www.callifeadvocates.org/blog and click on the C-Span presentation of the Judicial history behind Roe v Wade. The two interviewees are: Clarke Forsythe, Senior Counsel for Americans United For Life and Melissa Murray, UC Berkeley Professor of Law in the area of Reproductive Rights. The total disregard for our Constitution and the rule of law on this case is truly astounding.

     

  2. Attend the 12th Annual Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco. Link to www.walkforlifewc.com for a schedule of events. David Daleiden of Center for Medical Progress and Alveda King are the featured speakers.

     

  3. Assisted Suicide in California is not yet official. This piece of horrendous legislation was passed during a special session of the legislature called by Governor Brown to discuss how to find the financing for health care issues. Little in that regard was solved. However the Assisted Suicide bill was improperly included in the session and railroaded through to a vote of approval and it is listed as “enacted” meaning registered, and signed by the Governor on December 10, 2015. Any bill approved in a special session has 91 days following the closing of the special session before it is activated. The Special Session is still open. There is only a “call for Recession.”

     

  4. Eleven, mostly health care, bills which we opposed were happily vetoed by the Governor along with 89 other assorted bills in other than the health or education fields. However, the authors of those 100 bills have placed them back on the agenda for consideration of an override vote canceling the vetoes.

     

  5. Congress passed the Every Student a Success Act – ESSA- S. 1177, authored by Republican Lamar Alexander, long an advocate of federal control of education, and NY Democrat Patti Murray, long time friend of Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood; as an authorization to make a sweeping expansion in the education agenda of the country. Upon a somewhat closer look at S.1177 it becomes frighteningly obvious that this bill is merely a receptacle for every hair-brained scheme that both the Dems and Reps have regarding “best practices” for the proper rearing of the Whole Child. So far I’ve counted 38 other bills amended into this bill which, if standing alone would never pass. And, by the way, many of these bills are reflected in the 11 bills mentioned above. They are in the area of : pupil mental health, preschool, ethnic studies, home visiting, community-based services, workforce development and a variety of totally unrelated issues such as pardoning some prisoner who died in 1913.
     

So, stay healthy, take your vitamins, keep your computers running and your outrage in overdrive.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
