Vote Life-Vote Fallin

Last night’s results of the gubernatorial primaries in Oklahoma were historic, yielding a race between Republican Mary Fallin and Democrat Jari Askins for Governor. The United States has only seen two female candidates face off in a general election for Governor three times. Oklahoma will soon have its first female governor regardless of the outcome. But make no mistake; these two female candidates are very different. Only one candidate holds the same stance on Life that the early feminist pioneers of our country held so dearly.

fallinSusan B. Anthony and the other trailblazing, early feminists, Mary   Fallin fights for Life. After Fallin’s win last night, SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser said, “A new women’s movement which affirms its original pro-life roots is making its way across the country, and Rep. Fallin is one of its brightest stars.” Mary proves this with her 100% Pro-Life voting record.

The people of Oklahoma want pro-life laws put into effect, but current Governor Brad Henry has vetoed all pro-life legislation that makes it to his desk. One such bill requires mothers seeking abortions to see an ultrasound of their child before the procedure. This bill has been vetoed by Henry twice, but Mary Fallin will stop the deadlock and sign these important pieces of legislation.

With Mary Fallin as Governor, major progress will be made in the fight for Life. The people of Oklahoma need women like Mary Fallin as governor, who will work tirelessly for the unborn and their mothers- securing basic human rights for all. Hopefully, in the future, more states will be as lucky.

The Komen Connection

Susan G. Komen RibbonOctober will be here before we know it, and that means National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Good hearted people will buy pink merchandise from organizations that support breast cancer research. The largest of these organizations is Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Fighting Breast Cancer is a noble cause, however the people behind the pink movement don’t always adhere to their mission to, “Save lives, empower people, [and] ensure quality care for all…”

The problem is that the affiliates of Susan G Komen for the Cure donate millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood. Eric Winer, chief scientific advisor for SGK said in a letter addressing their affiliation with Planned Parenthood that, “Planned Parenthood uses these funds only for breast health education, screening, and treatment programs,” and that SGK checks the organization twice a year to make sure the money donated is used only for the previously mentioned purposes. Even if Planned Parenthood only uses the money towards measures to fight breast cancer, it does not change the fact that donations to fight breast cancer also help Planned Parenthood carry out their role as the largest abortion provider in the nation. When Planned Parenthood gets funding “just to help breast cancer,” it allows for donations from others to go straight to funding abortions. If nothing else it gives the organization more money to thrive.

There are also studies that link abortion to breast cancer- which is precisely what SGK is supposed to be fighting against. These studies have been disputed for years, but in an article “Planned Parenthood deepens link to breast-cancer group,” Jill Stanek uses the most basic of logic to explain how abortions cause more breast cancer (at least indirectly). The following are facts that SGK acknowledges; childbearing protects women from breast cancer (The more children you have and the sooner you have them decreases your chance for breast cancer), breast-feeding protects against breast cancer, and never having children or delaying having children increases a woman's risk of getting breast cancer. So it is pretty obvious that abortion helps cause Breast Cancer, simply because having children helps prevent breast cancer.

Since the pro-life cause is “kind of a big deal” here at SBA List, as well as a root of faith for many pro-lifers, we should all make sure we know where our donation money is going during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Knowingly giving money to help the pro-abortion agenda is not “morally permissible” in the Catholic Church, despite what the “Susan G. Komen for the Multiple Causes” website may say.

Quit Meddling in Kenya!

Kenya may soon have a new constitution…with a little help from their friends: American friends, that is.  The referendum to be held on August 4 is supported by the United States, though this “support” favors the “yes” vote. The Obama representative to Kenya originally did not openly support the proposed Constitution but rather the referendum process itself…until today. Michael Ranneberger, the US Representative to Kenya, has publically declared his support of Kenya’s proposed pro-abortion constitution.

In this new constitution, abortion, which is currently illegal (minus exceptions to save the mother’s life,) will include re-defined allowances for the procedure for health reasons as determined by a medical professional; the new provisions are vague and broadly defined. This translates into abortion on demand. "We, the Catholic bishops…are convinced that the constitution will result in liberalisation of abortion laws," stated John Cardinal Njue, according to LifeNews.

 “Evidence gathered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Inspector General (IG) Donald Gambatesa clearly shows that the Obama Administration has funded grantees with the express purpose of identifying and mobilizing tens of thousands of “yes” votes.” LifeNews.

    These recipients include The Central Organization of Trade Unions, Kenya (COTU) receiving $91,106.66 to “marshal a coalition of pro-Constitution individuals, institutions, and organizations to drum up political support for the Proposed Constitution by organizing a public rally at the historic Kamukunji Grounds, Nairobi.”  Also included in the funding is the Kenya Muslim Youth Alliance (KMYA), receiving $56,953.33 from the US for “one of a series of activities that aim to contribute to an ‘overrepresentation’ of the YES voters at the next referendum. Specifically, OTI will provide support to Kenya Muslims Youth Alliance (KMYA) in the form of transportation and communications” according to LifeNews.

The population of Kenya is overwhelmingly pro-life. In March of this year, the polling company Synovate asked voters the following question: “Thinking about abortion, which of the following is closest to your view?” Approximately 69 percent of Kenyans are against legalizing abortions while only 9 percent support it. About 16 percent said abortion is not a big deal while 6 percent had no opinion.
When asked, “When do you believe human life begins?” only 19 percent stated that human life begins at the time of birth. Some 77 percent of Kenyans stated that life begins at conception.

“Respondents were also asked about their views concerning the new Kenyan Constitution and found only 19 percent support it as currently written, while a majority, 52 percent, want Parliament to revise the document before passage.” LifeNews.

America ought to be that “City on the Hill” as proclaimed and envisioned by early Americans. We have regressed so far that we kill our own for the sake of selfish pursuits and are now encouraging other nations to follow our lead. We have descended into a country promoting a culture of death.  Are we not content with the 50 plus million children aborted since 1973 and the numerous birth control options? Must we intrude into the politics of other nations and promote our agenda there, too? I think not.
