As incredible as it seems, Vanderbilt University actually HAD a policy of forcing its nursing students to pledge to assist in abortions that they have since backtracked from.  Note that they have to "pledge" that they will assist, which leads one to believe they didn't have a lot of volunteers otherwise.

Here's their statement that accompanies the pledge:

“If you are chosen for the Nurse Residency Program in the Women’s Health track, you will be expected to care for women undergoing termination of pregnancy. Procedures performed in the Labor and Delivery unit include…terminations of pregnancy,” it states. “If you feel you cannot provide care to women during this type of event, we encourage you to apply to a different track of the Nurse Residency Program to...

On Wednesday, the Republican led House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly (245-189) to repeal the big-government ObamaCare legislation that the Democrats pushed into law last March.

Just as when it was first being debated and passed, Obama's signature "reform" bill was opposed by a majority of the American public, and recent polls show a similar majority being in favor of its repeal.

But now that repeal legislation has passed the House, what of the Senate?  Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said he will not bring the bill up for a vote, claiming that Americans support ObamaCare, which, if true, means he should have not trouble getting a...

Here we go again.

The radically liberal 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court and found that a San Diego war memorial, shaped in the form of a cross, is unconstitutional, simply because it is on public land...which would constitute a government endorsement of religion.

Really?  Just curious, but does anyone really believe our government "endorses" religion?  How could a government that sanctions the killing of a million or so unborn babies every year be said to "endorse" religion?

Despite the fact that they had to drop this idea from the original legislation...and despite the fact that promoters of health care "reform" promised that no such thing would ever happen, here it is, just months removed from ObamaCare being signed into law.

In case you missed it, the White House is planning to put forward regulations that will incentivize doctors to meet with patients and discuss their "end of life" options.

Via the NY Times:

Under the new policy, outlined in a Medicare regulation, the government will pay doctors who advise patients...

From the "yes, really" category, we have the recent decision by a public school principal in Brookline, Massachusetts to send parents a form asking them to indicate whether or not their child should participate in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, (which teachers are required to lead, according to state law).

The form tells parents to check either: "Yes, my child will participate in the weekly Pledge of Allegiance", or "No, my child will not participate in the weekly Pledge of Allegiance."  The letter goes on to urge parents to "have a conversation as a family to help your children understand why I will be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and to support them in feeling comfortable and confident in the decision on whether or not to participate."

On Tuesday the US Census will issue its 2010 report, and the result will be more bad news for Obama and the Democrats.

In short, the national headcount will show population shifts away from "blue" states, and to "red" states - a shift that will impact the apportionment of the 435 members to the US House of Representatives as well as members of the Electoral College.

As for the 2012 presidential race, this will result in a net shift of at least six electoral votes to states the habitually vote Republican in presidential elections, essentially the equivalent of adding another small state to the GOP column.  This comes on top of an almost identical shift in population (and political power) as a result of the 2000 census.
