    Liberals are having conniption fits because President Bush is approaching his second term as if he were actually elected. But conseervatives in
    Congress may be growing bolder, too, if the just-passed spending bill is any indication.

    I'm talking about the sepcific provision that conservatives inserted in it that bars federal, state, or local agencies from uising financial coercion to pressure health care providers to perform abortion services or referrals.

    Can you believe such a bill could ever be necessary in this country? How could we have arrived at the point where the federal government's policy is to treat the killing of innocent babies in the womb as a de facto governement entitlement?

    Indeed, certain Democratic leaders are outraged by the Republican's audacious maneuver. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi grumbled, "Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, but Republicans are gutting it step by step. "Senator Diane Feinstein called the privision a "terrible, egrigious abuse of power."

    Let's consider some of these complaints. Have you noticed the recurring modus operandi of liberal activists these days of trying to radically change the status quo and then painting those fighting to retain it as the agitators?

    Just as homosexual activists characterize proponents of preserving the age-old institution of traditional marriage as enemies of thier civil rights, these liberals pro-aborts are saying, in effect, that unless the governement proactively encourages the practice of abortion, it is "gutting" or "chiping away" at abortion rights.

    For Nancy Pelosi's information, Roe v. Wade had nothing to do with the right of states to regulate abortion. It had nothing to do with forcing health care providers to perform abortions. It's bad enough that the courts have, essentially, CREATED a federal constitutional right to abortion in certain categories of cases for those who freely choose to engage in the procedure. But it's even worse for the government to force unwilling health care providers agianst their will, and oftentimes agianst thier consciences, to engage in the abominable practice.

    These same people who steadfastly claim they are merely pro-choice--as if they are neutral on the issue--are the ones who vigorously back institutions and groups that seem to discourage mothers from having their babies.

    These pro-aborts are also usually people who most loudly profess their belief in a pure seperation of church and state, presumably becasue they don't want the state forcing its values down its citizens'throats. Yet they have no hesitation in using the government to force this "value" down our throats!!
