NANCY BRINKER WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF PROTOCOL
Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan
B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, was confirmed
last month to the post of White House Chief of
Protocol. Ms. Brinker previously served as
President Bushs ambassador to Hungary. She is
the former wife of Norman Brinker, founder and
chairman emeritus of Brinker International Inc.,
operator of more than 1500 restaurant chains
including Chilis Grill & Bar, Maggianos Little
Italy, and On the Border Mexican Grill.
Nancy Brinker was listed as an
advisory board member in the 2002 Annual Report
of Planned Parenthood of North Texas, the fifth
largest Planned Parenthood affiliate in the
nation. Planned Parenthood is the number one
provider of abortions in the United
States. During its 2005-2006 fiscal year the
nonprofit Planned Parenthood Federation of
America performed a record 264,943 abortions, according to its Annual Report.
The Foundation, as well as Susan G.
Komen for the Cure are named for Nancy Brinkers
sister, who died of breast cancer. Their
declared purpose is to raise funds to find a cure
for breast cancer, yet they inexplicably and
steadfastly refuse to recognize the link between
abortion and breast cancer. Instead, Susan G.
Komen for the Cure awarded 72 grants totaling
hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned
Parenthood affiliates during the years 2000
through 2005. The grants are reported on the
Susan G. Komen website by entering Planned
Parenthood on Komens searchable grant page.
In September of 2004, Eve Sanchez
Silver, a breast cancer survivor and charter
member of Komens Hispanic/Latina Advisory
Council, resigned from Komen, stating, As a
Christian and life affirming citizen I can not
reconcile the Foundations decision to affirm
life with one hand and support its destruction with the other.

SCIENTIST DEVELOPING ARTIFICIAL LIFE FORM
A disturbing report on October 8,
2007 in the Lorain, Ohio newspaper, The Morning
Journal, began this way; Perhaps as early as
today, people will have to start dealing with a
new development as awesomely powerful and perhaps
as potentially dangerous as the nuclear bomb.
The potential danger comes from a
new development by scientist Craig Venter,
described by the Journal as a DNA wizard. He
is the super-scientist who several years ago
first spelled out the entire 3 billion letter
code for human life written in every cell of our
bodies. Now, he told The Guardian, a British
newspaper, he and his team have taken chemicals
off the shelf and built an artificial
chromosome, containing 381 genes made up of
580,000 base pairs of the genetic code. The
artificial gene is to be plugged into a
bacterium, where Venter expects it to take
control, effectively turning it into a new and
different life form. He has already applied for
a patent for the new life form.
The problems inherent in this sort
of research are obvious. As The Morning Journal
points out, the question is How can people be
trusted to harness artificial life when people
cant properly handle nuclear power or
effectively control the spread of fire, even after thousands of years?
Why is the U.S. government awarding
patents for life forms, as if they were
mechanical inventions or products to be sold?
Never forget that you were once an embryo.
