The Dictatorship of Choice

Merck’s lucrative HPV vaccine is now being proposed as mandatory by twelve states for girls 11 years old and above. Yes, the word is mandatory. Remember that the culture of death is not a benign dictator: it becomes a tyrant as soon as it is able to enforce its will. Cynically, the whole premise of the culture of death is “freedom of choice,” but if Merck and the CDC have their way soon we will be bulldozing chemicals into little girls’ bodies for no other reason than that their parents’ generation has deprived them of a choice. Those who say that they don’t want to force their morality on others are now having others’ immorality forced upon them.

There's more....

UFO Mystery Solved

Lights 'not of this world' mystery finally solved
Air Force reveals weapons tests that sparked global UFO frenzy

Hmmm...this is really weird.

Mysterious lights in the sky witnessed and photographed by an Air Force colonel who described them as "not of this world" apparently have an explanation of this Earth after all, WND can reveal.

The strange illuminations seen Jan. 9 over western Arkansas came from special military flares that slowly parachuted to the ground as part of an Air Force training mission involving A-10 aircraft pilots at nearby Fort Chaffee, a base used by the military for testing weaponry.

New Pro-Life Website-Family Research Council

Welcome to A website for disseminating information on the abortifacient drug RU486 .
This website has been created to provide the public, the press, and the public health community with accurate background information and news about RU-486 - the abortion pill - also known as "mifepristone" or "Mifeprex." A site like this was needed to bring together important information about the drug that will be difficult to find in the major media outlets upon which most people rely.

Is There a Post-Abortion Syndrome?

In her mind, all of her troubles — the drugs, the suicide attempt, the third and fourth abortions she went on to have, the wrestling match of a marriage she eventually entered — are the aftermath of her own original sin, the 1973 abortion. It’s a pattern she sees reflected everywhere: “In America we have a big drug problem, and we don’t realize it’s because of abortion.”

The truth will set you free!
