The Susan B Anthony List is to be commended for their good work

Our positive law has rejected the Natural Law Right to Life and its prohibition against these intentional homicides committed against our youngest neighbors through procured abortions. Until the positive law is changed to reflect the truth, our tax dollars must no longer be used to engage in this evil. We must defund Planned Parenthood now! We commend Governor Jan Brewer for signing the "Whole Woman's Health Funding Priority Act.' This is a victory for life and truth.

PHOENIX, AZ (Catholic Online) - We are happy to report that Governor Jan Brewer has signed into Law Arizona House Bill 2800 known as the "Whole Woman's Health Funding Priority Act". The Governor signed the measure into law while speaking at a reception for the "Susan B. Anthony List" in Phoenix.This genuinely Pro-Woman  - and therefore Pro-Life - organization is led with courage and competence by Marjorie Dannenfelser.

The list says of its own efforts that it  "works in the spirit and tradition of the original suffragettes. Susan B. Anthony herself called abortion "child murder." Alice Paul, author of the original 1923 Equal Rights Amendment, reportedly said the early feminists believed that "Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women." Modern feminist Patricia Heaton echoes this theme, saying, "The early feminists were pro-life. And really, abortion is a huge disservice to women, and it hasn't been presented that way."

HB 2800 is a good piece of legislation which reflects a true concern for health and the real common good. It ensures that public monies go to genuine health care facilities and not organizations like Planned Parenthood which has pulled off a ruse. A ruse is an action intended to deceive. They dress themselves up as a "Health Care Provider" and include the taking of the life of children as a "service" under their definition of "reproductive services". Abortion is not health care. It is certainly not "reproductive". Abortion is deadly.

Planned Parenthood has insinuated themselves in the government subsidized delivery of "medical services" and receive massive government funding. Their web site tells visitors they are "America's most trusted provider of reproductive health care" Yet, there is nothing "reproductive" about abortion - and it is certainly not a service to the child, the mother, the father or society. They should be defunded and now Arizona has joined the growing number of States doing just that. Governor Brewer is to be commended for her proper action in signing the legislation.

The Governor offered this statement, "This is a common sense law that tightens existing state regulations and closes loopholes in order to ensure that taxpayer dollars are not used to fund abortions, whether directly or indirectly. By signing this measure into law, I stand with the majority of Americans who oppose the use of taxpayer funds for abortion." Kansas, North Carolina and Texas have already enacted legislation similar to the Whole Woman's Health Funding Priority Act. Indiana, New Jersey and Wisconsin have used their budget processes to bar public funding for abortion providers.

Planned Parenthood's ruse reminds me of my childhood reading Superman comics. I date myself by mentioning the Bizarro world. However, many of my readers will remember. The Bizarro's inhabited "Htrae" ("Earth" spelled backwards). Their code was "Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!" I say sadly because what is happening with Planned Parenthood is all too real.They live in a Bizarro world.

Planned Parenthood must be exposed, opposed and defunded. Authentic Health Care Providers who truly provide health care services which respect the fundamental human right to life should receive their funding and be empowered to compete with them at every level, Local, State and Federal. They have had a 'lock" on government funding for far too long and it must come to an end.

Planned Parenthood charges women, many of whom have been deceived and are themselves the second victims, for killing their own children. The "medical professionals" use surgical strikes, brutal suction or what they euphemistically now call a "medication abortion" (chemical weapons) to cause their death. Then, they are paid for the evil act with tax dollars.

Every procured abortion is the intentional taking of innocent human life in the first home of the whole human race. Every person alive today began their human life in that sanctuary of life, the womb. No one with any integrity or genuine moral sensibility any longer claims that the child in the womb, whom we now surgically operate on and can see clearly in 4D images, is not a human being.

The argument being made to try and justify this killing of our youngest neighbors is the perverse idea that "freedom" enables the one with more power to hire a so called "medical professional" to reach inside the sanctuary of the womb and take the life of a vulnerable and innocent child. Of course, we would not make the same argument about a one year old child living outside of the womb, in the nursery.

There is no moral distinction between what Planned Parenthood does and the intentional killing of a child outside of the womb. In addition, the time thresholds of "viability" under the inane structure forced upon us by the Supreme Court's Roe and Doe decisions keep getting pushed back as our technology reveals the truth about our smallest neighbors. Science has confirmed what our consciences have known all along, every procured abortion kills a child.

Our positive law has rejected the Natural Law Right to Life and its prohibition against these intentional homicides committed against our youngest neighbors through procured abortions. Until the positive law is changed to reflect the truth, our tax dollars must no longer be used to engage in this evil. We must defund Planned Parenthood now! We commend Governor Jan Brewer for signing the "Whole Woman's Health Funding Priority Act.'
