Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Things that make you go "huh?" -- "Medical treatment shouldn't be open to doctor's opinion"

I just got this over the e-mail wire, from a friend -- the latest on the "conscientious objector" lawsuit my pharmacist friend Neil is being forced to fight. Please pray for him, and for legislation that will allow all morally concerned pharmicists and medical personnel to refuse to act against morality without these legal battles!

State Reps to PEB: Noesen's conduct egregious, theft; call for suspension:

Reps. Kessler, Richards, Pocan, Sinicki: Letter to the Pharmacy Examining Board, Re: Neil Noesen. WisPolitics Website. Available at:

Statement by Gov. Doyle:

Doyle also weighed in on the controversy surrounding Neil Noesen, a pharmacist from northern Wisconsin who denied a UW-Stout student birth control at a Wal-Mart store and refused to transfer the prescription to a different vendor.

Some legislators are attempting to pass legislation that would allow health care providers to deny medication or treatments that conflict with their personal beliefs. Doyle promised such legislation would not get past his desk.

"It's unconscionable," Doyle said. "Medical treatment shouldn't be open to doctor's opinion. I would veto it."

I don't know about you, but I sure as heck want my medical treatment to be my doctor's opinion! If it's not my doctor's opinion, then who's opinion should it be? The opinion of some bozo in political office who doesn't know the difference between a mitochondrion and the medulla oblongata??? No thanks.
