Dr. Frank Joseph's Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!         INTRODUCTION

    We've enlisted Frank Joseph, MD, a committed retired Catholic physician from Southern California to write a special pro-life column for the DailyCATHOLIC which will appear each Wednesday exulting the Catholic beliefs on creation and procreation in upholding the Sanctity of Life.

        As I was listening to Clinton's State of the Union Address, I wondered what might have been, if a president, with moral values, had given the speech. I took notes and then I wrote, (after a few of Clinton's self-serving statements) -- the truth.

        Clinton said, "We are fortunate to be alive at this moment in history."

      The truth: "We are fortunate that the killing of unborn babies was illegal when we were born, or one-third of us wouldn't be here now."
    Take a family of three, then eliminate one person in that family.

        Clinton said, "Never before has our nation enjoyed, at once, so much prosperity and social progress."

      He withheld: "Never before, have our country's morals sunk deeper into the cesspool."
    This has been the most immoral and corrupt administration in the history of our country. Clinton should read the Bible that he carries around for photo ops. "For what will profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul."

        Clinton said: "This is the largest economic expansion in the history of our country."

      He withheld: This economic expansion was under a Republican controlled congress. In 1996 was the first time in 40 years that the Republicans had the majority, in both the House and Senate. But, as usual Clinton takes credit for everything.

          Clinton said: "Every classroom should be connected to the Internet."

        Better: "Every classroom should be connected to God, by posting the 10 commandments and be supplied with pencils and encyclopedias and the money saved can be used to feed the poor."
      The brain, as a muscle, must be used or it will waste away. I wonder how Einstein did it, without a computer. Children will have enough time after their elementary schooling to learn about computers. First -- all of their time should be spent on learning how to read and write.

          Clinton said: "We will make America the safest big country in the world."

        He withheld: "We will make America unsafe for unborn babies, even while they're being born."
      Our country is one of the biggest killers of unborn babies in the world. Also children are killing children, and women are having babies and throwing them in dumpsters, because we have instilled in their minds that life is cheap, through the killing of 1.4 million unborn babies a year.

          Clinton said: "The Pope has asked us to help the poor and save the lives of people dying of AIDS and other diseases."

        He conveniently withheld: "The Pope has asked us to save the lives of unborn babies and uphold the Sanctity of LIfe."

          Clinton said: "Never before have we had such a blessed opportunity -- and therefore, such a profound obligation -- to build the more perfect union of our founders' dreams."

        The truth he should have said: "Never before have we had such a blessed opportunity -- and therefore a profound obligation -- to build the more perfect union of our founders dreams, THAN by adhering to the true meaning of the words of the Declaration of Independence, in which our founders said, 'all men are CREATED equal.'"
      I want you to take notice, they did NOT say, all men are BORN equal. So, let us, here and now, make a commitment that we WILL respect the wishes of our founding fathers and adhere to the true meaning of their words, when they wrote the Declaration of Independence, thus ensuring the sanctity of all life -- from conception to death, and only then, will we reverse the public's perception that life is cheap -- and only then, will we have a MORE PERFECT UNION, and more importantly, only then will we acknowledge the existence of GOD, OUR CREATOR, who sent His only Son to die on the cross for OUR sins.

          Clinton said: "We should get over our racial hatred, that all the people in terms of genetic make-up, scientifically, are 99.9% the same."

        The truth as he should have conveyed it: "Since genetically we are all 99.9% the same and since the DNA in a human being is present at conception, then we must STOP the killing of unborn babies, since we are all the same. So whether you're White, Black, Brown,Yellow, Born or Unborn -- all life is sacred and we MUST try to get along with each other."

          At one time Clinton made a Freudian Slip -- instead of saying, "make American communities more livable," he said. 'make American communities more liberal." He's so ingrained in the socialistic philosophy that he repeated the same mistake 10 seconds later. Very strange.

          We won the Cold War -- communism was defeated in Russia and their trend is now towards capitalism and now Clinton and the rest of the liberal Democrats are trying to bring communism to our country...very subtlely and insidiously.

          In 10 years there will be a 2 trillion dollar federal surplus. Instead of the liberals giving us a tax cut, so we can do what we want with our own money, since we were overcharged in the first place, the Clinton-Gore administration feel they know better, what to do with our money. Sounds like the failed communistic philosophy, doesn't it?

          Maybe, if we had more of our money, both parents wouldn't have to work to make a decent living, thus ensuring more control of our children in their formative years.

          May God help our country, if Gore or Bradley are elected president. Both take pride in their pro-abortion stand, even while a baby is being born -- the barbaric partial-birth abortion. Many of you know the procedure, but many don't, so I will repeat it until I'm blue in the face -- until every person in our country, knows it by heart.


        In these late term abortions, the entire baby is delivered except for the head, which they make sure stays in the birth canal (otherwise it would be murder) -- then the back of the baby's head is punctured with scissors and then the baby's brains are sucked out. The baby feels excruciating pain during this procedure. This act is so horrendous that congress -- the House and Senate, passed a Bill that would ban it, but Clinton, who claims he feels everyone's pain, vetoed the Bill, for political reasons, even in the face of the American Medical Association, who say that it is never needed to save the life of the mother or to ensure her health.

            HOWEVER, there was an exception in the Bill that it could be done to save the life of the mother. But this was not good enough for Clinton and the liberal Democrats -- they wanted a health clause. This would have made the Ban completely useless. It would have been a joke. Doctors could have gotten around it, if the woman, just says, "Doctor, I can't have this baby, It will make me a nervous wreck," or some other lame brain excuse.

          The truth of the matter is that Clinton has to pay back the feminists and the other groups, who got him, and the other pro-aborts in Congress elected. These people, just want this option open, in case a woman changes her mind late in her pregnancy, and wants to have her baby killed and they want to make sure it's a "legal killing." This is sick.

          Clinton, the President of the United States of America, with one one stroke of the pen, condemned to death thousands of babies yearly, who otherwise would have lived. He has reverted our supposedly civilized society back to barbarism. There are no words to describe the awesome barbarity of this procedure. It's enough to make you cry. The millions of unborn innocents surely have!

          There's no doubt about it -- the defining moment of our country's civility is only 10 months away. How we vote in the polls will determine our future. Will we be a civilized nation under GOD with compassion, love and decency, and believe God when He says: "Thou Shalt Not Kill."

          Will we believe in the Holy Scriptures, which say: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart." ?

          Or will we be a barbaric nation of degeneracy, which embraces the ideology that one of our freedoms should be TO KILL, if we so choose. It's not a private issue concerning a woman's decision. It's like slavery -- when human beings were not considered persons and had no rights and were subject to the will of their owners.

          You MUST vote for pro-life candidates across the board (Presidency, Senate, and House) and get the truth out, so that others will do the same. There is no more important issue that faces our country today -- not tax reform; not balancing the budget; not health bills; not welfare reform; not foreign aid; not health care, -- you name it. They're all a distant second. Even, if you lump them all together, the sum would still pale in the level of significance.

          We are talking about the killing of 1.4 million unborn babies every year. About 4,000 daily. How in the world, could a civilized society be a party to this? Even, if they didn't believe in God, just out of common decency, how could anyone condone these atrocities? While we decry Hitler we imitate him tenfold worse!


          God bless,

      Dr. Frank
