If you read this Action News Hotline before Saturday, try to make it out to our picket at 9 a.m. in front of Jan Barton’s new abortion mill in Des Plaines. That’s from 9 to 11 a.m. at 110 S. River Road, which is between Golf and Rand Roads.
This is an old-time picket with graphic signs, chants and prayers. We want Barton to be sure that we know where his new mill is and that we’re still praying for his conversion. Some years ago Barton accused pro-lifers of “killing women” by trying to take away their right to abortion.
Then on Sunday, Nov. 14, starting at 1 p.m. is the WomanCare Services luncheon at the Skylight West on Ogden and Harlem. in Berwyn. That’s 7117 West Ogden. I will be speaking at this event. For information call 708-795-6000.
Pro-Lifers Troubled by Specter Chairmanship
Pro-abortion Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania is in line for the Chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Following President Bush’s re-election, Specter made remarks that suggested he would not back any anti-abortion judicial nominees to federal courts. He said such nominees who could change the right of a woman to choose and overturning Roe v. Wade “would be unlikely to be confirmed by the Senate” under his Chairmanship.
Now Specter is calling and meeting with senators to assure them that he would not block Bush nominees from a full senate vote, whatever their stand on abortion. Specter says he voted for every one of President Bush’s nominees in the committee and on the floor, and he wants to hash things out with the Judiciary Committee members next week in a private meeting.
Orrin Hatch is stepping down from his position as current chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas said, “I expect we’ll sit down with him and hear what his plans are to support the president and his nominees.”
Specter says though he is “pro-choice, I have supported many pro-life nominees.” For the record, Specter helped defeat Ronald Reagan’s Supreme Court nominee, Robert Bork.
Media Clueless, Values Voters Not
Don Wycliff in Thursday’s Chicago Tribune makes a good point that the many voters who listed “moral values” as the reason for their vote, are well aware of the liberal media folks who usually don’t even consider doing anything on Sunday morning besides “read the papers and watch the news shows.” Wycliff points out that millions of Americans still go to church on Sunday, but that these people are not even considered as important by the liberal press, if they are considered at all.
Wycliff concludes his article by referring to a strongly committed Christian, Cal Beisner, whom he met years ago in Arkansas, “We in our news shops may have been blissfully unaware of all the Cal Beisners and his fellow believers out there. But you can bet they’ve always been aware of us.” Truer words were never spoken.
Committed Christians who subscribe to the philosophy that God must be served and honored, still have their eye on the liberal media. And maybe they’re starting to look at us.
