Demand that Colorado Investigate Planned Parenthood

Dear Friends, 

 
Please join Colorado Right to Life in our support of the message from the Colorado Catholic Conference. Attorney General, Cynthia Coffman, has been negligent in her duty to investigate Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood for the criminal activity seen in the recent undercover videos from The Center for Medical Progress.

 
Please take a few moments out of your day to contact both Cynthia Coffman and Dr Larry Wolk to politely but firmly encourage them to do the right thing and to take action immediately.
For the Innocent,
Colorado RTL
 
 
DEMAND THAT COLORADO LAUNCH INVESTIGATION INTO PLANNED PARENTHOOD
 
Yesterday, thirty legislators in Colorado requested that the head of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) investigate the horrific actions of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. See the Denver Post: Colorado Legislators Want Probe.
 
 
***TAKE ACTION TODAY***
We are calling on all people to support these Colorado legislators in their request by contacting Dr. Larry Wolk, the executive director and chief medical officer of CDPHE and ask that Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains be investigated. See in the Daily Camera, Charlie Danaher: Barbarism started long before the body parts.
 
We are also requesting that all people contact the Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and express disappointment in her decision not to investigate Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.  Please ask Attorney General Coffman to investigate Planned Parenthood in Colorado. See 9News: Colorado Attorney General Refusing to Investigate .

Rejecting the Supreme Court’s Opinion on Homosexual Marriage

We reject the court’s immoral and perverse opinion on homosexual marriage. The creator Jesus Christ said that God made us “male and female at the beginning of creation” and God instituted marriage between a man and a woman. All governing officials at every level of government should reject and ignore any and every attempt, whether legislative, by popular vote, or judicial, to redefine marriage. Likewise, all governing officials should reject Roe v. Wade and any and all other attempts to repeal God’s enduring command, Thou shall not murder.

"We just want to be left alone." Right. "In the public square, Christianity and homosexuality are mutually exclusive. One or the other will be in the closet", says Colorado Right To Life. A homosexual replied: "No really, we just want to be left alone. Oh yeah, and you better bake us a cake. Or else. Or a pizza pie. And cookies. And send us flowers. And you better give me a haircut while I'm waiting. And take some photos. Or else. And forget your heterosexual student clubs and dating services, and as for your teachings on morality, we've decided to ban them. Oh yeah, and did we tell you? You're going to print us some t-shirts and then host our wedding! Yup. Even on your church property. And we want a parade, and you're going to provide security too." And please note, as exposed by the Duggar crisis, contrast the media's visceral hatred of Christian families to their decades long tolerance of actual homosexual pedophiles.

Repub. Senate Pres. Bill Cadman Should Stop Affirming Abortion

For immediate release:

Colorado RTL Urging Republican Senate President Cadman
Not to Reaffirm Abortion in Moment of Crisis

Denver, 3/31/15 -- Colorado Republican Bill Cadman is opposing efforts to pass a Fetal Homicide bill that is abortion neutral. The Senate president is unwittingly making a horrific moment even worse. "The unconscionable crime against Michelle Wilkins and her baby Aurora in no conceivable way justifies Cadman's plan," said CRTL president Biff Gore, "which would mar new legislation by using it to reaffirm abortion."

While the abortion industry opposes any kind of fetal homicide legislation, Sen. Cadman is playing into Planned Parenthood's hands by using his office to affirm their core business. Alternative legislation, appearing in full just below, has previously passed the Republican-controlled House. This single-sentence bill is abortion neutral because, unlike other states' laws, it authorizes homicide charges while neither addressing nor affirming abortion.

"If the commission of any crime in this Title [18 of the Colorado Criminal Code] or Title 42 of the Colorado Revised Statutes is the proximate cause of death or injury to an unborn member of the species Homo sapiens, the respective homicide and assault charges for that death or injury may be brought contemporaneously with the underlying charges."

"We ask Senate President Bill Cadman to reverse course," said CRTL vice president Susan Sutherland, "and to oppose any effort to explicitly exempt some killing of unborn children. Colorado deserves fetal homicide legislation not bogged down in abortion politics."

Colorado's HB 15-1128 vs. Good Incrementalism

[For pain capable bills, waiting periods, abortion clinic regulations (like HB 15-1128), heartbeat bills, informed consent, anesthesia, "protected class" bills, etc., see Compromised Incrementalism below.]

PRINCIPLED INCREMENTALISM

When personhood is finally enforced in law, of all the abortion laws then in effect, only the principled incrementalism bills will not be thereby abolished. All compromised incrementalism will be repealed when personhood is in effect. As American RTL wrote to Dr. James Dobson in American RTL's full-page open letter that appeared in newspapers around the country, "Incrementalism is fine; compromised incre­mentalism violates God's enduring command, Do not murder."

Examples of Principled Laws

  • Fetal Crimes Bills: only principled UVCA bills, but not those re-affirming abortion
  • Divesting Pension Funds: from companies that perform or support abortion
  • Parental Involvement: in medical care, but not mentioning nor re-affirming abortion
  • Born-Alive Infant Protection: though moral, legal protection for survivors backfires
  • Prohibit Embryonic Stem Cell Research: for both publicly and privately funded use
  • Prevent Insurance Coverage: prohibit any health insurance from covering abortion
  • Prevent Funding of Abortion: prohibit financing of abortion (without re-affirming abortion and its funding as is usually done)

American RTL's two must-read articles, Oppose Regulations Because... and Oppose Exceptions Because... explain the principles that must be adhered to in order to write principled incremental legislation. In summary, the God-given right to life must be advocated without exception. As an example of a horrendous violation of those principles, see ARTL's PBA Summary: Saved Not One, about the 15-year fundraiser that took in a quarter-of-a-billion dollars for the pro-life industry, yet as Dr. Dobson wrote, "Ending partial-birth abortion... does not save a single human life." Rather than being a victory, many pro-life leaders have since condemned the U.S. Supreme Court's Gonzales v. Carhart ruling upholding the PBA "Ban" for being a virtual late-term abortion manual.

COMPROMISED INCREMENTALISM

On the other hand, morally compromised legislation can be recognized in that they are child-killing regulations, present child-killing exceptions, and in that they therefore:
   - end with "and then you can kill the baby"
   - would keep abortion legal if Roe were ever merely overturned.
"And then you can kill the baby" bills include:

Examples of Unprincipled Laws

  • Informed Consent (here's an example)
  • Waiting Periods
  • Abortion Clinic Regulations (like HB 15-1128)
  • Partial-Birth Abortion "Ban" (for example PBA: Saved Not One)
  • Late-term Bans (including pain capable, heartbeat, and anesthesia bills)
  • Fetal Pain Anesthesia Bills (here's an example)
  • Parental Notification or Consent
  • Etc.

Use the Personhood Test: One way to help people see whether or not an abortion law is principled or not is to apply the personhood test. When America finally recognizes the personhood and God-given right to life of every child, some pro-life laws will become redundant and unnecessary. However, other laws which include "pro-life" regulations and exceptions will be explicitly invalidated and annulled. The pro-life laws that will be merely rendered no longer necessary are the principled incrementalism. The abortion regulations that will be invalidated are the compromised laws. An example of this is found in Ohio's HB 125 "heartbeat bill" which bans the killing of an unborn child only after the detectability of a heartbeat). Morally compromised incremental efforts have raised hundreds of millions of dollars for their supporters but undermine the nation's recognition of the sanctity of human life. Principled pro-life laws build toward victory. So American Right To Life urges everyone to oppose compromised incrementalism and to support only principled laws, and especially personhood!

Compromised: Abortion Clinic Regulations, Pain Capable, Heartbeat, Etc: Just like Roe v. Wade, pain capable bills, clinic regulation bills, etc., specify the conditions under which a child can be killed. In this 25-second clip, Focus on the Family, without realizing it, demonstrates how the child-killing regulations that they support actually backfire. Still in 2015, the pro-life industry is working to improve the image of the abortion industry. This January 2015 report puts on display the judgment of Americans United for Life (AUL) and the public relations work being done for Planned Parenthood, unintentionally, by this well-meaning state affiliate of Focus on the Family...

Please help Colorado avoid this kind of "pro-life" legislative confusion and moral relativism which, for a third-of-a-century now, has further entrenched child killing in America and continues to postpone the eventual defeat of the child-killing industry.
