"Blood Money"

Blood Money. Have you heard of it? While news about the film has been in circulation for several months, Blood Money still needs your help to get the latest pro-life movie into theaters nationwide. In a valiant attempt to expose the dark realities of the abortion industry - “This film will examine the history of abortion in America, from the inception of Planned Parenthood and the profitability of abortion clinics, to Roe v. Wade, to the denial of when life begins, to the fight to save the lives of innocent babies, and the devastating effects it has had on the women that have had them.”

The film was set to premier at New York’s Spectrum Theater on May 5th, 2010 but was unexpectedly canceled. states that, “Roman Jaquez, a Troy filmmaker and producer of "Blood Money," said that Keith Pickard, an owner of the Spectrum, called him last week to say that he had canceled the screening after receiving phone calls from people threatening to picket outside the theater if the film was shown.” The same source then contends that “David K. Kyle, director of the film who lives in Maryland, issued this statement: "I find it hypocritical that pro-abortion activists claim to be pro-choice but don't want the public to have a choice in what films they can watch."” Hypocrisy at its finest! But for those of you who were hoping to see the film, do not fear, the film will now premier this Friday (May 05/14/2010) at New York’s Madison Theater. Much to the dismay of the pro-abortion picketers whose threats lead to the cancellation of the original premier, the cancellation has actually benefited the film. The later stated that: “Instead of four screenings over two days at the Spectrum, it will have 20 screenings over seven at the Madison.” Well done pro-life community, well done!
I can assure you that by simply watching the trailer you will be blown away. In order for Blood Money to succeed and secure distribution in a theater near you, I urge you to go online to and sign up. Join the fight to defend Life!

Obama Nominates Kagan to Replace Stevens

kagan blog

Today President Obama announced Elena Kagan, current Solicitor General and former Harvard Law School Dean, as his choice to replace Justice John Paul Stevens on the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Obama recently said he doesn’t have a “litmus test” for Supreme Court nominees on their abortion views, but went on to say "I want somebody who is going to be interpreting our Constitution in a way that takes into account individual rights, and that includes women's rights, and that is going to be something that is very important to me."  Although he doesn’t call it a “litmus test,” President Obama clearly wants a justice who believes that the right to an abortion is guaranteed in the Constitution.

Elena Kagan fits this description perfectly.  She publicly criticized a 1991 Supreme Court ruling, Rust v. Sullivan, that upheld the right of the Department of Health and Human Services to restrict funding from groups that performed or promoted abortion.  Additionally, she has expressed her belief that crisis pregnancy centers should be barred from guiding teens in decisions about their pregnancy.

Her career and associations considered, Kagan will be an activist judge.  We need judges who make decisions based on the Constitution, not on personal views.  And we do not need someone to legislate from the bench, but to ensure the Constitution is upheld.

Let's Keep this Ball Rolling

A Tennessee law that bars insurance plans on the newly created public exchange from covering elective abortion was signed into law yesterday by Governor Phil Bredesen.  This makes Tennessee the second state behind Arizona to pass a law of this sort.  The law was passed in reaction to the recently passed healthcare reform bill that allows insurance plans subsidized by the government to cover elective abortion.  This is one of the many pro-life contentions with the bill.

Tennessee and Arizona are very wise to be proactive in passing this measure before the new healthcare law goes into effect in 2014.  Mississippi and Florida are awaiting their governor’s to sign similar legislation.

The vast majority of Americans don’t want their tax dollars to fund abortion.  Encourage Members of your state legislature as well as the federal legislature to follow in the footsteps of Tennessee and Arizona and prevent tax dollars from funding insurance plans that cover abortion.

Go here to find your local Right to Life chapter with guides to contacting local legislators.  Also, contact your Member of Congress here and tell him or her to support H.R. 5111 the Protect Life Act which will ensure no federal funds flow toward elective abortion in the healthcare bill.
