Say NO to Partial Birth Abortion

This article is not about freedom of choice, or being Pro or Anti abortion. Partial Birth Abortion is an entirely other issue all together. Partial Birth Abortion IS MURDER.

Tomorrow, Barrack Obama will become our new President. One of the first things he plans on doing as President is sign the Freedom Of Choice Act (FOCA). This act would eliminate every restriction on abortion nationwide.

  • FOCA will do away with state laws on parental involvement, on partial birth abortion, and on all other protections.
  • FOCA will compel taxpayer funding of abortions.
  • FOCA will force faith-based hospitals and healthcare facilities to perform abortions.

This video will give you a better idea of what happens to a child during a Partial Birth Abortion. While it is illustrated, and contains no actual footage, it is still difficult to watch. Please do what you can to help them.

I am urging everyone to read the expert analysis by Americans United for Life (AUL) and sign the Fight FOCA petition at this website. So far, they have over 400,000 signatures from concerned Americans that want this STOPPED! Please add your name to the list.

Thank you.

Where to go to save money

You can never have too many ways to save money. I'm always on the lookout for freebies or coupons. The freebies have been almost obsolete lately, so I thought I'd offer a few of my favorite coupons sites as a peace offering.

If you're new to my blog, you should know that I NEVER post anything with a catch. I'm only interested in getting, and passing along, things that are absolutely free. No strings attached.

WOW Coupons - This is my "go to" site for retail store coupons. Check it before you make your next shopping trip. They update it often, so keep checking back.

The Bargainist - This is another great one. They offer online coupons, retail coupons, free samples, and let you in on the big unadvertised sales!

Grocery coupons are offered many places online, you just have to know where to look. You can try checking websites like Pillsbury and Better Crocker, but you'll have to sign up for their newsletter to receive them. I'm a member to both and their emails aren't overwhelming and it's worth it to get the coupons.

Pennies For Patients

Giving Hope to Children with Life Threatening Blood Cancer

Every year, schools across the country participate in an event called Pennies for Patients. Pennies for Patients is a nationwide fundraiser that brings in money for very sick children. These children have suffered physical ailments that most adults wont have to endure in their lifetime, and they need your help. All money donated goes directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

During the few weeks that schools run the Pennies for Patients fundraiser, students and their families are encouraged to bring in loose change from home. Any form of monetary donation is accepted, however, and every cent is put to a worthwhile cause. Checks can are accepted, as well, and can be made out to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. With the money that is collected, the society provides education to children about Leukemia, and the importance of finding a cure. The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, is to cure Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin's Disease and Myeloma. It is also used to improve the quality of life of both the patients and their families.

Typically by donating directly to schools, there is some reward for the class that collects the most money. Last year my son's class was rewarded with a pizza party for collecting over
$ 300.00. Not only do the kids learn a valuable lesson in giving to others, but they get to celebrate their generosity by having a little fun for themselves too.

If your child or family member is in school, chances are they are collecting money right now. This is such an important cause, please help teach the child in your life the importance of giving to others in need. Send some spare change, or a few extra dollars, and make a difference. Donations can also be made online at the Leukemia & Lymphoma site.

Pornographers need bailouts too!

I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!!! Pornographers Larry Flynt (Hustler Magazine) and Girls Gone Wild CEO, Joe Francis, are looking for a financial bailout from our government.

According to MSNBC, economic times have become so bad that American's cannot afford their porn anymore. Larry Flynt is putting the responsibility on Congress, saying that they must "rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America." According to Flynt and Francis, sales of their XXX DVDs are down 22%. They plan on asking for $5 billion from the government.

What's the worst that could happen if the porn industry doesn't get it's bailout? A few pornstars may have to go out and flip burgers? A few of the industry women may have to go out and actually slap on a bikini or something? Woah. That would be devastating. Give me a break.

By the way, I have to thank my Mom for keeping me "abreast" of this situation. -Mom's the one that told me about this story - You can always count on Mom to be "in the know" when it comes to porn! :-) LOVE YOU MOM!
