BROOKE LAUREN PAZ
A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM DR. VINCENT NGUYEN
I am Dr. Vincent Nguyen, a palliative physician with the privilege of practicing the noble art of medicine to care for the most frail and sick in our community. Every day, I quietly fulfill my role in the hospital and clinic with the purpose of improving people's lives, relieving pain and suffering from their underlying illness, while tending to the associated fears and anxieties. Natural death from one's terminal illness by itself is emotionally painful and tragic, but the active role in causing the death of a human person is just plain evil! If we are judged by how we treat the most vulnerable in our society, then how do we see ourselves? So then what are we to do
Edmund Burke, a great Western Philosopher of our time stated, "All that is required for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing". Today I stand united with you, no longer as part of the "silent majorities", to speak out against the atrocities that daily rob the lives of the innocence. While we are privileged to live in this great Nation and are granted the freedom to have choices, well then what choice do the unborn babies have?
Just because abortion is legal does not make it moral. Abortion is objectively wrong, regardless of how one feels about it. I am "pro-choice" and like you feel that some choices are wrong, such as killing innocent human beings simply because they are in the way and cannot defend themselves. It unjustly takes the life of a defenseless human being!
A rallying call from President Thomas Jefferson when our Country was in its infancy, reminds us and our elected officials that "the first and only object of good government is in the care of human life and not its destruction"...and may I add "life from conception to natural death". Therefore, let us no longer turn our face away or sit on the fence to allow one of the most vital issues of our time defines who we are as a Nation under God.
The greatest gift from God is the gift of Life. The greatest debauchery is to intentionally return that gift ungratefully and unopened.
THE VIDEO EVIDENCE THAT STARTED IT ALL
from the Center for Medical Progress' Human Capital Project
In July of 2015,
the Center for Medical Progress released the beginning installments of its exhaustive, nearly two-year undercover investigative citizen journalist reports. The evidence was explosive. It showed Planned Parenthood and Planned Parenthood Affiliate employees casually discussing–sometimes over meals in public restaurants, sometimes at commercial trade shows–in the most casual manner the marketing and management of a strategic human fetal parts supply chain. This report shocked the nation, as well it should.
Think what you will about abortion,
but the video coverage presented by the Center For Medical Progress revealed a cold, calculated, and emotionally detached service provider that has lost sight of its humanity. We should all agree that an organization that can operate in the manner captured by these videos should not be supported with taxpayer funding at ANY level of government. To fund this organization is to endorse this activity, which is currently under investigation in the House of Representatives subcommittee chaired by Representative Marsha Blackburn.
OC for Life was established as a response to this investigation.
We believe that the actions of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates have forfeited their right to public financial support or endorsement. As such, we advocate for public officials to work to eliminate government funding of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates at EVERY level. OC for Life is a Political Action Committee which supports no particular political party, and will endorse for public office those candidates from any party who correctly answer two qualifying questions:
- After viewing the material presented in the Center for Medical Progress undercover citizen journalist investigative report, do you believe that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates should receive funding from any level of government?
- If elected to office, will you advocate for the de-funding of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates at every level of government?
Two simple questions to arm the voters with necessary information to see what our candidates for office believe about government funding of Planned Parenthood–and if elected, what they will do to de-fund Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.
What is presented in the Center for Medical Progress undercover citizen journalist investigative report is self-evident.
What needs to be determined is what our elected representatives plan to do about it.
