Just saw this posted on Facebook by John Jacubczyk, past board president of Arizona Right to Life:
Carolyn Gerster M.D. passed into her eternal rest today. Dr. Gerster was involved in the pro-life movement for over 40 years. She was a founder and president of Arizona Right to Life. She was one of the founders of the National Right to Life Committee. She served as president of NRLC. Her amazing skills were known throughout the country and later throughout the world. She spoke in over 48 States and on six continents. Please join me in praying for her soul and praying for her family.

Today, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued a call for the U.S. Congress to establish another federal circuit court of appeals that removes Arizona from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
In his call, Gov. Ducey stated, “…due to its voluminous caseload and disproportionate size, the Ninth Circuit has an abysmal turnaround time of over 15 months for an average ruling… Arizonans deserve better than this from the people in power, and that includes a judicial process that is judicious in nature. It’s time that Congress takes overdue action to resolve this crisis in our courts.” Ducey further pointed out that the Ninth Circuit is consistently overturned with a 77 percent reversal rate.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich joined in stating: “The Ninth Circuit is overloaded and it’s bringing on new cases faster than it can resolve old ones. Reform in this area is long overdue.”
The Arizona Conservative says: Bravo to the governor’s efforts! And to CAP for supporting this measure. They took the high road and didn’t say this … but we will say it: in 99.9 percent of the social issues cases going up to the Ninth Circuit, this controversial court will rule against conservatives. The deck is stacked in San Francisco, in favor of judicial activism. And it isn’t fair.
Cathi Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy:
Today we observe one of the most tragic days in our nation’s history – the day the United States Supreme Court ruled that taking the life of a preborn child at any stage of pregnancy for any reason was legal. Yet it is a day filled with hope for the days ahead.
Today, I urge you to redouble your efforts to protect the lives of preborn children and their mothers and fathers.
Forty-three years ago few would have anticipated a pro-life movement that is stronger than ever with the country daily witnessing an increasingly pro-life majority. That the abortion rate would be dropping, not increasing.
Some key thoughts to encourage you that we are making a difference…
To keep making a difference, I offer you these action steps…
Today we mourn the havoc wreaked on preborn children, men, and women. Yet today we also keep our hope fixed on a new day in America when all life is protected from its very beginning to its natural end.

Arizona superstar conservative Congressman David Schweikert confirmed he is not planning to run against entrenched U.S. Senator John McCain in this year’s Republican Primary.
We have long recommended Schweikert for a Senate run, but we know it will be extremely difficult to get the RINO out of the Senate. Too many people have been wasting their vote on a veteran and former POW to give him the boot. That’s a sad, but true, fact of life in Arizona.
It will be left to Arizona Senator Dr. Kelli Ward to brawl with McCain, who does two things every time he’s up for election:
First, he claims to be a conservative.
Second, he destroys any conservative who gets in his way.
McCain lacks the temperament and the principle to be a good Senator. His career is one of complacency and under-performing. We deserve better representation.
Senator Jeff Flake is a McCain puppet, and we strongly recommend Schweikert go after his Senate seat at the first opportunity. Again, Arizonans deserve better representation than we are getting from this McCain shadow.
In a nationally televised town hall Thursday, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu defended Americans’ right to bear arms in the face of President Barack Obama’s assault on the 2nd Amendment.
Babeu, invited by CNN to forum in Virginia, asked Obama what gun control measures he would have implemented to stop previous mass shootings. Obama failed to provide specifics in his answer.
“I was disappointed President Obama could not level with the nation and list for us his ideas for a solution,” Babeu said. “He would rather issue constitutionally questionable executive actions rather than tackle the issues head on working with Congress.”
Babeu said America must focus on mental health issues as a way to address gun violence.
“About half of my jail is filled with people with underlying mental health issues. Jails have become de facto mental health treatment centers,” Babeu said. “Keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill while providing successful treatment options will reduce violence.”
Babeu, selected to appear on CNN because of his strong support for the 2nd Amendment, returned to Arizona Friday and renewed his commitment to protect freedoms enshrined in the Constitution.
“A law abiding citizen with proper firearms training is the best protection against an armed violent predator or terrorist,” Babeu said. “I encourage Arizona residents to learn about their right to bear arms and proper gun safety.”
Here’s the message posted on the Planned Parenthood website:
To those who go to unimaginable extremes to close our doors:
We deplore your violence. We reject your threats. We fight your legislation to limit reproductive rights and health care in every corner of our country.
We believe your actions and words hurt women — whether by making it impossible to seek health care or by creating a climate of disrespect and hostility that fosters extremist violence.
We demand an end to the incendiary rhetoric from anti-abortion activists and lawmakers that demonizes Planned Parenthood doctors and patients. The smear campaign and false accusations that motivated the attack in Colorado Springs must stop.
We aren’t going anywhere. Planned Parenthood has been here for nearly 100 years, and we will keep being here as long as women, men, and young people need health care with dignity.
To those who go to shocking extremes to close our doors, know this:
These doors stay open.
Now read The Arizona Conservative’s response to Planned Parenthood:
To those who go to unimaginable extremes to degrade our culture and put profit over life:
We deplore your killing of 330,000 innocent Americans each year. And the maiming and physical and psychological wounding of countless women. And refusing to put health and safety first. And defrauding the government of taxpayer money. And refusing to report the rapes of under-age girls.
We reject your defiance, your questionable practices and your lack of ethics.
We vow to hold you accountable for the degradation of humanity.
We see you hurting women, killing children, looking the other way at rapists, your hypocritical pretense at standing for the women you exploit and your blatant disregard for America’s taxpayers.
We demand an end to your anger and your incendiary, hateful rhetoric, as well as your lies about having done mammograms and your false claim that a “smear campaign and false accusations” caused a mentally deranged madman to go on a shooting spree at Colorado Springs. Your words are defamatory, slanderous and libelous. As well as insulting. Stop pretending to speak for women – whom you exploit.
We are thankful you are in retreat. Many of your clinics are closing down, rather than meet state health regulations (putting women at heightened risk), rather than hire doctors who have admittance at hospitals. You wouldn’t know the word dignity if it stared you right in the face.
Your house of cards is unraveling. Corporations are hiding their associations with you.
Abortion is in decline. You are in retreat. The truth is coming out. You’ve been taking our culture down. And we will not go with you. Your doors will stay open for now, but there are fewer of them.
Peace on earth. Good will to men, women and children.
