Abortion made easy

Abortion made easy for Massachusetts' teens. This Boston Herald report shows how a state-funded sex education Web site, mariatalks.com, tells teens an abortion is “much easier than it sounds”, while downplaying all risks, while explaining how to bypass parental approval: “It may be really hard for you to imagine talking to either your parents or a judge about getting an abortion, but there are people who can help you through it.”

And what kind of judges is Deval Patrick proposing for the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court? Undistinguished legal minds as long as they are openly homosexual.

Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick has nominated a well-known lesbian judge, Barbara Lenk, to the Supreme Judicial Court. Lenk is currently an appellate court judge, who was appointed by Bill Weld. This also appears to be part of a recent national push to appoint openly homosexual judges. Lenk's confirmation hearing before the Governor's Council will be Wednesday, April 27 at the State House.

Easter travesty:

"An abortion is when the contents of the womb (uterus) are removed, so that the uterus goes back to how it was before a woman got pregnant"

Wow, such medical insight! Perhaps Maria needs to stop talking.

Bishop's Statement:
The critical social issue of teen pregnancy warrants the attention of the entire community. However, not all means proposed for solving this challenge conform to the dignity of the human person. A great number of elected state officials and concerned citizens have objected to a government-funded website intended to respond to teen pregnancy rates in Massachusetts . This website employs demeaning and sexually explicit terminology, an approach that rightly deserves the criticism it is receiving. This tactic only succeeds in talking down to minors under the mistaken assumption that the young are incapable of responding positively to challenging and uplifting appeals to their better nature.
The problems at stake here go much deeper than word choice and phrasing; a simple re-editing cannot resolve them. Those defending the website argue that it simply conveys medically accurate information, but this view is contested. As observed by those who seek the well-being of children and yet oppose the website, it promotes an overall message that sexual conduct for unmarried minors is acceptable whenever it “feels right.” Additionally, the website describes abortion in misleadingly opaque terms, touting the procedure as “easier than you think,” and emphasizes ways to obtain an abortion without parental knowledge. The website fails to acknowledge that many women, especially those undergoing an abortion in their teenage years, suffer long-term negative consequences. Furthermore, the website limits the list of available resources to organizations that advocate for or provide abortion and contraception.
For these reasons, we strongly support and join with those in the public policy arena who urge the state to eliminate funding for the website and who are asking the state to assist in its removal. We do not agree that the only choices available are limited to keeping the website running with tax dollars or doing nothing at all to address the problem of teen pregnancy. The state should work together with all sectors of the community, not just those with a vested interest in offering teens contraception and abortion, to find solutions that respect the dignity of young people and their capacity to make good and wholesome choices.

On Thursday, April 28th, a letter, signed by 63 legislators, was sent to the Governor's Office asking him to shut down the website "Maria Talks". The site contains sexually explicit content, encourages teens to engage in sexual behavior and counsels teenage girls how to obtain an abortion without their parents' knowledge. The site is maintained by the Department of Public Health.
