Obama to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz: “God Bless You”

Obama to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz: “God Bless You”

If I were to type all the words there are in every language for "disgusted" or "nauseated",   I could not BEGIN to express my feelings.
Actually, the only way I COULD express my feelings would be to barf!

Obama Ignores Kermit Gosnell Murder Trial in Planned Parenthood Speech

Obama Ignores Kermit Gosnell Murder Trial in Planned Parenthood Speech

Well, of course!  As Planned Babykilling's highest ranking supporter, it is his duty to avoid speaking about anything that could make the abortion industry look bad!

Collecting Collections (Updated and Re-posted)

I now have three collections. (As of  last August, four!)  I think that's enough! If I go on,
I'll end up with a collection of collections!
Then again, perhaps I should start just one more collection, just ONE
more. Maybe I should collect various versions, [including some very
old Latin ones] of the opening prayer at Mass.
Then you could say about me,
"In addition to her other four collections, she also collects Collects!" 


Well, on April 20th, 2013, I decided to go for it!
LOL!!!

I Can't Believe I Didn't Blog About This!

This morning, I found, in the kitchen drawer, the top, or umbrella part of one of those paper umbrellas they use to decorate drinks.  It had become detached from the toothpick.  Of course, that paper umbrella is now in my Break-Off Collection.
The last time I was able to add to this collection was in January, when I found several items that had broken off some Christmas decorations; or perhaps from the same decoration.  THAT is what I somehow neglected to blog about.
I'll describe these items more fully in a future post.

This Week's Fan Fiction

But It's Still A Child 
My first fan fiction story with a specifically pro-life message.

of Revealed Relationships.
(To read the story from the beginning,  please click here.)
I'm having so much fun writing this!

Saving Stripey
My first "Anne of Green Gables" story.
Ironically, Anne and her family do not appear.

Video: Reporter tells CNN: Gosnell “served the community,” gave free medical care | LifeSiteNews.com

Excuse me?  Served the community?    I disagree.  On behalf  of hundreds of babies who will never have the chance to serve the community, I very strongly disagree.
 While I am praying that Gosnell will be convicted, I am also praying that he will not receive the death penalty, but rather, life in prison.   And I pray that he will have a change of heart, be horrified by what he has done, and become pro-life.
Oh, would that make Satan grind his teeth!

Obama’s Budget Eliminates Funding for Abstinence Education

Obama’s Budget Eliminates Funding for Abstinence Education

Since everyone who reads this blog knows just where I stand on the issues of abortion and contraceptives, I'm going to simply look at this from the economic angle.
Contraceptives cost money.
Abortions cost money.
Abstinence does not cost one single cent.

And eliminating funding for abstinence education will not eliminate abstinence education itself.   There are still parents and guardians.
 

90 hours of Mother Angelcia for her 90th Birthday



This is going to be an AWESOME celebration!!!

A Homily that Inspired a Story

It was during Fr. Denis Wilde's homily this morning on EWTN that I got the idea for my first Pro-life fanfic story.  About time, considering that my username at fanfiction.net is ProLiferChelle!
I have to admit that it took me some time to decide which show and which characters to use, and when the story should take place.
I decided not to use any Catholic characters because abortion is NOT just a Catholic issue. 
I'm fairly certain that some readers will find the story offensive,  and some of them may flame me, but I couldn't let that stop me.  What matters is that the story gets read, and, I hope, makes people think.

Hooking Kids on Sex Video Exposes Planned Parenthood Agenda

Hooking Kids on Sex Video Exposes Planned Parenthood Agenda

This is a new video.  I was only able to watch about two minutes of it before I x-ed out.  I came VERY close to throwing up! In fact, my supper and my stomach are STILL debating whether or not to part company!
Just when I think PP (Planned Promiscuity?) (Planned Pornography?) can't sink any lower.... they do!

  

Updating a Post from September


I've just ordered these two magnets for my Decorative Magnet Collection.

Update:   I never received this order, but my credit card wasn't charged for
it.
I ordered the Traffic Light Magnet again last night, but from another seller.
(The one I'd originally ordered it from no longer has it.)  I did not order the Orange Tabby Magnet this time, because I have a set of cat magnets.  Also, in order to stick to my budget (not my strong suit!) I had to limit myself to just ONE magnet.
I've already got my eye on several others, but I'll have to wait until the end of April to see what I can afford.
LOL! This update is so much longer than the original post!
