The question is, did Irving Feldkamp really own Family Planning Associates? Out of all the news stories on this plane crash, the only outlet that mentioned such a connection was LifeNews.com.

A quick Google search shows some other mentions of his ownership of FPA, mostly other clearly biased sources, some of them apparently reposts of the LifeNews article.

Even the OP, however, shows that he purchased FPA 4 years ago. Clearly, the original source of his wealth is his dental practice and other businesses.

Weird. This letter is also posted on the AntiTerrorism Coalition group in Yahoo Groups. Which appears to be a collection of urban legends.

The OP *says* that, but since it's unsourced, it doesn't really *show* that.

Of course. I didn't mean to suggest that OP was factual, merely that it lacks internal logic.

For people that claim to be all about human life, anti-abortionists sure suck at caring about other people.

I've gotten some grief around here for calling them "anti-choice" when their preferred moniker is "pro-life."

I just don't buy that they are really in favor of life.

Of course they are! Life begins at conception, and ends at delivery.

Oh, boy, this really got my goat (sorry, katikate. I don't meant to insult your goaties!)

You know, a tragedy is a tragedy. People die horrible deaths through no fault of their own. People dying in that cemetery did not do so in order to 'make up' for something another family member may or may not have done.


Holier than thou people, whether they are pro-choice or pro-life are missing a great lesson to be found in most if not all holy books.

child killing.
Having lived in Redlands, CA for the majority of my life, I have to admit to never hearing of any "protests" happening outside of any private homes. Of course, if they have started recently, I have just not heard of them yet. However, the fact that the home is listed as a "mini-mansion" makes me wonder where the home is. If it is near the center of town near the business district, the homes there are not "mini-mansions" but rather historic homes, and the only place I can see where a protest would garner more attention than just the homeowner and their neighbors. If the home is in the newer construction areas of town then the protests would only be for the benefit of the homeowner and their neighbors as there would be no traffic of any kind driving through. However, if this "mini-mansion" is actually in the area where large, mini-mansion esque homes actually are in Redlands, good luck having people stand in front of the home, much less with signs as those homes border a tight, windy, two lane street with no sidewalks and fenced property that starts at the street edge. All other homes along this street that would be safe for youth activists to stand near are in gated communities.

We've had a heck of a time trying to verify whether Holy Cross Cemetery in Butte, Montana, has a "Tomb of the Unborn." Do we have any snopesters in that area who might know (or could find out)?
