Specter's pet project: Sexual abstinence

A glance at the earmarks secured by Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) in recent years prompts the question: Does Pennsylvania have a problem with sex?
The senator, who supports abortion rights, is turning the state into the abstinence-earmark capital of the country, directing more than $8 million into dozens of programs and, in the process, arching more than a few eyebrows.
He's done it again this year, setting aside $1 million for an Erie women's center that provides "abortion recovery" counseling, a community group once chaired by a late supporter and 23 other school districts, hospitals and local organizations. No other member of Congress earmarks money for abstinence education. Read more

PHILADELPHIA : Despite an unfavorable federal court decision earlier this year, Repent America (RA) will once again be a witness at "OutFest" on October 7, 2007. The judge�s ruling against RA and the First Amendment will not dissuade the ministry team from speaking the truth of God�s Word this upcoming weekend. It does, however, raise serious concerns about how the Philadelphia police will respond to RA as it takes to the streets with the message of repentance and the good news of Jesus Christ. 
On October 10, 2004, eleven Christians with Repent America, now known as the Philadelphia Eleven, were arrested and jailed for ministering at the annual taxpayer-funded celebration of homosexuality called "OutFest". Charged with hate crimes and a host of other charges, the eleven faced up to 47 years in prison and $90,000 fines each. After Common Pleas Court Judge Pamela Dembe dismissed the case as having no merit, the Philadelphia Eleven filed a federal lawsuit against the City of Philadelphia and Philly Pride Presents, Inc., organizers of "OutFest", for violating their civil rights.

Abortion Not the Only Option in Philly

Women of Philadelphia Win by a 'Touchdown'
New Pregnancy Services to be Offered on Broad Street
People For People, Inc., a community development corporation founded by former Philadelphia Eagle and now pastor Herbert Lusk, has teamed up with Care Net and Carpenters for Christ to bring the women of Philadelphia much needed pregnancy support services. The three organizations will be targeting an area of downtown Philadelphia, where there are five abortion providers within a two-mile radius, but no pregnancy centers. The collaborative effort is part of"Care Net's "Touchdown Cities" project, an initiative to bring free pregnancy services to women and men in urban areas. Care Net is a faith-based, non-profit organization that supports over 1,100 pregnancy centers across North America.
"Without convenient access to the free and compassionate help of pregnancy centers, women in crisis pregnancies often feel that abortion is their only option," said Lorey Kelley, Care Net's Director of Urban Center Development. "As a result, women in urban areas are paying the heavy price."
The statistics, she said, bear that out. "Currently, 94% of all abortion providers are located in metropolitan areas, with 70% of these in urban communities," said Kelley. "As a result, African American and Hispanic women account for a disproportionate number of the more than 1.2 million abortions performed in the United States each year. There's something wrong with this picture."
Care Net is raising $75,000 to help open the area's first pregnancy center, which will offer a host of free services, such as pregnancy tests, peer counseling, material resources, childbirth and parenting classes, and community referrals. People For People, Inc. has acquired a building at 717 N. Broad Street, which will be renovated Sept. 13-14 by Carpenters for Christ, a volunteer team of skilled carpenters from Alabama, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
"We applaud Pastor Lusk for his leadership in bringing the women of his community a 'touchdown' of real choices and support," Kelley said. "His example should be followed in urban areas across the country."
