Week in Review – HALO Warns Against PCHETA; Marian Blue Wave Goes Global
Earlier this week, the Healthcare Advocacy and Leadership Organization (HALO) released a press release expressing their concern and opposition to the federal Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA).
HALO states they support hospice and palliative care providers who “respect the dignity and life of every patient, give honest information to patients and their families, and provide appropriate pain control and comfort measures.”
The organization explains that current federal hospice programs are plagued by fraud, poor quality care, rampant abuse, and intentionally caused deaths. HALO warns that enacting another federal hospice program would only cause more of the same issues.
Additionally, HALO warns that if PCHETA becomes law, it will finance education programs to entice the public into trusting palliative care and hospice. HALO’s bottom line is that Hospice and Palliative Care Medicine “must be cleaned up before any more taxpayer funds are spent promoting it.”
The new campaign designed to take down abortion and Planned Parenthood, the Marian Blue Wave, has officially gone global. As of this week, over 1,100 people have committed to saying a Rosary once a week for an end to abortion in America. However, in an unforeseen twist, some of those commitments have come from individuals in 10 different countries, including: Canada, Mexico, Portugal, Brazil, India, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Australia, Poland, and the United States. As it would seem, the Blessed Mother wants the Marian Blue Wave to extend much farther than we first planned. As the Marian Blue Wave receives more commitments every day, we will surely surpass 1,200 in the coming days.

Video of the Week – People DON’T Begin in the Womb
The facts about human embryology tell us when and where a new human being comes into existence. So why do pro-life advocates use the phrase “begins in the womb,” since people don’t begin there?

Pro-life Social Media – International Pronouns Day
Planned Parenthood’s infinite pursuit to be relevant on every social justice invention takes us to a day no one asked for—International Pronouns Day. If pretending to be something you aren’t isn’t enough, there’s a day for celebrating pretend words used to describe people doing the pretending. Don’t be bothered if none of this makes sense. It doesn’t. It makes as much sense as Planned Parenthood having birthday celebrations when its business is all about preventing them. Here’s how Planned Parenthood instructs its Twitter followers on the proper use of imaginary pronouns:
It is important to respect people’s pronouns and use them. If you don’t know someone’s pronouns, just ask. And if you mess up a person’s pronouns by accident (it happens), be sure to apologize and use their correct pronoun in the future. #PronounsDay19 #PronounsDay pic.twitter.com/G8jXvPRQYv— Planned Parenthood (@ppmn) October 16, 2019
Remember when School House Rock taught us how “saying all those nouns over and over can really wear you down”? Now all the pronouns are going to wear us down. “Zir”? “Ze”?
What are the pronouns for aborted fetuses?— Mark Fidelman (@markfidelman) October 16, 2019
First you have to care about someone’s pronouns.— Bloviating Zeppelin (@BZep) October 17, 2019

Zirself? Ximself? Seriously?!— Meg (@Watwood6pack) October 17, 2019
why is this a thing??— RunRoseRun (@rosaboo909) October 16, 2019
We have no idea, but apparently the “War on Women” died and no one noticed. Should we expect a new Planned Parenthood campaign, “Stop the war on ze!”?
