Kagan’s participation in ObamaCare decision may have violated judicial ethics and federal statute

Posted: 30 Jun 2012 04:00 AM PDT

Elena Kagan’s decision to vote on Thursday’s health care ruling may have violated judicial ethics and federal statute, legal experts say. As Solicitor General, Kagan appointed the head of the legal team that formulated the president’s legal defense of the health care reform bill, signaling a possible conflict of interest. Her participation, according to liberals and conservative scholars alike, casts a pall over the outcome.

Some GOP-led states plan to resist health care law despite ruling

Posted: 30 Jun 2012 04:00 AM PDT

While the Supreme Court upheld the bulk of the Affordable Care Act, it did rein in the law's expansion of Medicaid by ruling that the federal government could not withhold Medicaid funds to those states that don't comply. The absence of any punitive measures means there is nothing to compel the governors or attorneys general to begin implementation of the law.

(CNSNews.com) – In his deciding opinion in the cases challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare), Chief Justice John Roberts first says the mandate in the law requiring individuals to buy health insurance is not a tax.

Then he says it is a tax.

He upholds the individual mandate—as a tax, not a penalty—as the law of the land. But then says it would not be “unlawful” for Americans to violate the law’s mandate that they “shall” buy health insurance–as long as they are willing to pay the “penalty” for not obeying the law.

Happy Canada Day to all our Canadian readers. LifeSiteNews will return to is normal reporting on July 3rd.

The US supreme court decision on Obamacare has been an unexpected national shocker, leaving conservative or otherwise just plain honest and loyal Americans, of any or no party, reeling. Many are wondering what the heck happened to Chief Justice Roberts. Planned Parenthood and NARAL are overjoyed at the ruling.

When the decision was unexpectedly delayed last Thursday we knew something was up and it was not going to be nice. There was strong suspicion that the “Abortion President” was acting behind the scenes on his April warning to the court to not overturn Obamacare in what the president claimed would be an act of judicial activism.

And then there is the big question of how Elena Kagan could possibly have been legally permitted to vote on the decision.

However, the dreadful Obamacare decision seems to have given what is perhaps just the motivation injection needed for all those who believe this lying, corrupt president must be defeated in November and a majority of principled American Congressmen and Senators be elected to both houses.

It will likely be a brutally difficult, knock-down, drag-em-out task. This election will almost certainly involve more deception, manipulation and lawbreaking than has ever been seen in American electoral history. All hands on deck for life, family, faith and freedom.

We are delighted to report that our dear Mexican friend Jorge Serrano Limón has finally has been cleared of the trumped up criminal charges that dogged him for the past 8 years. When we were in Mexico last year we were amazed at Jorge’s incredible baby saving organization that has had more success than anything we have ever seen. That is why the pro-aborts have been after him.

When the Womb Is a Battlefield
By Judie Brown

A baby is a blessing. Sadly, that mentality seems to be a thing of the past. Instead, today a baby is often thought of as an intrusion, an annoyance, or a thing that can be discarded at any time and for any reason-especially if he does not meet society’s standards of normalcy. Today’s commentary addresses this mentality and explains why this attitude must change if our society is to ever find peace. We must help people realize that, truly, a baby is a blessing.

Another Planned Parenthood attack on Live Action ‘gendercide’ YouTube videos fended off

Thomas More Society
Shortly after Live Action posted the first of its series of “gendercide” videos on You Tube, on June 6, 2012, You Tube emailed that it had received another complaint that the postings of these videos had been in violation of its privacy guidelines. At Live Action’s request, Thomas More Society promptly responded to You Tube by letter dated June 8, 2012, arguing that the posting of these videos—-which showed Live Action’s investigator inquiring about and arranging for a sex selection abortion at Planned Parenthood’s New York, New York facility—-was fully consistent with You Tube’s privacy guidelines, and that there would be no justification for their suppression.  

California bill proposes extending pilot program for non-doctor abortions

Live Action News 
Back at the end of April, Senate Bill 1338 swept across the headlines in California. This bill would have made it legal for non-doctors to perform abortions and would have brought industry standards to an all-time low. Pro-lifers hailed the halting of this bill in early May as a victory for life, but the victory is short-lived. SB 1338 was born out of the pilot training program titled the “Health Workforce Pilot Project No. 171” – a project where non-doctors were legally allowed to perform over 5,000 abortions in California. Through the program, the hope of many favoring abortion was to demonstrate and collect data supporting the safety of non-doctors performing abortions and, ultimately, to make the practice legal. While the bill was slapped down previously, California State Senator Christine Kehoe isn’t quite ready to admit defeat.

Jackson, MS – The Jackson Women's Health Organization (JWHO), the last abortion clinic in the state of Mississippi, filed a suit in Federal Court in an effort to block the July 1 implementation of a new law that would require all abortionists to have privileges at a local hospital. Operation Rescue has learned that the clinic's court pleadings omit key information about their primary abortionist's botched abortion history in a deceptive gambit to conceal the truth about his atrocious safety record.

 

Operation Rescue has obtained court documents files on behalf of JWHO by the radical pro-abortion legal group, the Center for Reproductive Rights, that show dubious arguments and suspicious claims as the basis for the abortion clinic's court challenge, including an attempt to hide the identity of their primary abortionist to keep the court from discovering his involvement in the hospitalization of three abortion patients and other abuses that led to the state ordered closure of the Birmingham abortion clinic where he worked.  

 

[All court documents filed in this case as of this writing are available atAbortionDocs.org.]

 

JWHO, owned by the infamous "abortion queen" Diane Derzis, is seeking a temporary restraining order to keep the clinic open, but in court documents filed June 28, the Mississippi State Department of Health states that it plans to conduct a compliance inspection on Monday, July 2. JWHO has said that it will be impossible for them to come into compliance by that date. If it cannot comply, the abortion clinic will eventually be forced to close.

 

Covering Up for "Dr. John Doe"

 

JWHO states in court records that it employs three abortion providers. One abortionist apparently does have local hospital privileges, but only supplies abortions at JWHO on an infrequent basis.

 

Documents refer to "Dr. John Doe" as being "the sole physician providing abortion care on a regular basis" at JWHO until abortionist Willie Parker was hired on June 18, 2012. Parker's declaration states that he flies to Jackson "once a month" to conduct abortions. Parker's name is featured as a plaintiff on the law suit. "Dr. Doe" is not a named plaintiff – an intentional omission meant to conceal "Doe's" troubled past.

 

"Dr. Doe" is none other than Bruce Elliot Norman, who was employed until recently at New Woman All Women (NWAW), a Birmingham, Alabama, abortion clinic formerly owned by Derzis. 

 

Norman was the abortionist on duty on January 21, 2012, when three abortion patients were hospitalized – one in intensive care – for life threatening abortion complications. After pro-life activists filed complaints, the Alabama Department of Health (ADOH) discovered 76 pages of deficiencies and ordered the clinic closed.
