The FRC discussed the woman who attempted to “use a chemical abortifacient to kill a woman’s baby,” posted “science-themed Christmas cookies” and the world’s smallest snowman, talked about treating sickle cell anemia with adult stem cells, argued that President Obama should have turned down the Nobel Peace Prize, discussed adult stem cell treatment for the cornea of the eye,  treating Alzheimer disease with adult stem cells, and talked about a new book about using adult stem cells to treat heart disease.

The group also discussed the so-called “slippery slope” argument that legalizing gay marriage would lead to legalization of “pedophile, incestuous, and (especially) polygamous marriages,” and possibly to marriages of people to pets, dead people, and inanimate objects like robots (i.e. Stepford Wives).

In a Washington Update email, the group criticized spending of the stimulus money and Obama’s push to pass another stimulus bill, discussed the decision to not vote on a gay marriage bill in New Jersey, talked about the uses of adult stem cells, and “marriage penalties” in health care reform.

In a second Washington Update, the FRC criticized the 2010 Omnibus bill, noted their own effort to stop “Obamacare,” talked about the recent development in health care reform that would “allow insurance companies to place annual limits on the dollar value of medical care, as long as those limits are not ‘unreasonable,'” and advertised their Washington Watch Weekly radio show.

An FRC Action email advertised the upcoming live webcast entitled “An FRC Action PrayerCast: Government Takeover of Healthcare.”

The first post by the FRC from two days ago discussed, at length, Winston Churchill and one of his bodyguards, the movie The Fly and sci-fi transporters, and “perversions of science” such as stem cell research, all leading up to a brief statement on the naming of President Obama’s new bioethics advisory commission this week.

The group posted links to “some articles of interest,” talked about Obama and his bioethics commission to be named, discussed using adult stem cells for repairing damage done to human hearts from heart attacks, reported on a recent GSS survey and claimed that the results indicate that “married adults are more likely to believe in the importance of having their own children than unmarried adults,” compared “the slaughter of innocents at home and around the world through the actions of an aggressively pro-abortion administration” to the Holocaust, discussed the vote in Switzerland to not allow the construction of any more minarets,  and noted that adult stem cells are being used on lung injuries.

An email from the FRC displays different companies who, when you purchase something from their website (which you must access through the FRC’s “special online portal”), will donate between 1% and 4% to the FRC.  The email links to the “Family Research Council Mall.”

The FRC discussed the “launch of the Adult Stem Cells Saved My Life Education & Awareness Campaign,” the health care abortion debate, profiled EEOC nominee Chai Feldblum, interpreted results from a GSS survey as showing  “that adults in always-intact marriages who also worship at least weekly are more likely than all other adults to be proud of the type of work they do,” accused Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) of being unfamiliar with the Constitution and (possibly facetiously) argued that  “It may be time for an amendment requiring members of Congress to take a basic proficiency test on at least the Bill of Rights.”

An FRC Action Alert email urged subscribers to contact their senators and ask them “to vote No on any procedural vote to move to the health bill unless Senator Reid’s version of the bill contains the Stupak-Pitts amendment to ban government funding of abortion.”

A Washington Update email from the group discussed the abortion in health care debate, the  Adult Stem Cells Saved My Life Education & Awareness Campaign, and tort reform.

The FRC criticized the FBI for not “swooping in” when they saw the emails between “the terrorist Hasan” and “a jihadist imam in Yemen,” criticized NARAL and Planned Parenthood for threatening not to fund two congressmen because of their votes on the Stupak Amendment, criticized the Democrats for not being able to identify a place in the Constitution that gives Congress the authority to mandate that Americans buy health insurance, criticized Obama for not creating jobs and listed some suggestions for how to create jobs.

A Washington Update email from the FRC discussed the symbolism and creation of Veteran’s Day, voiced opposition to Judge Hamilton’s nomination and urged subscribers to do the same, and criticized the health care bill for helping veterinarians but not doing much for veterans.

A second Washington Update email from the group criticized the D.C. City Council for voting legislation out of committee without creating exemptions for religious organizations, criticized the AMA for its “liberal agenda,” and discussed the penalties for not having health insurance under the current health care reform bill.

A third Washington Update email criticized end-of-life consultations in the current health care bill, discussed the start of the FRC’s new awareness campaign called “Adult Stem Cells Saved My Life,” Lou Dobbs’ retirement, and advertised FRC Radio’s Washington Watch Weekly.
