Stanek Sunday funnies 10-19-14

Good morning, and Happy Sunday! Here were my top five favorite political cartoons this week. Be sure to vote for your fav in the poll at the bottom of this post!

by Tom Toles at, about the news that Apple and Facebook are offering a new benefit for women: egg freezing…
 by Glenn McCoy at
 by Dana Summers at
 closing with a twofer by Chip Bok at (and yes, CDC Director Tom Frieden made an equivalent statement)…
 (and Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t quite say this to President Obama, but what she said was just as gag-worthy: “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”)…


Pro-life photos of the week: Pro-choice expressions at a pro-life rally

This week Lila Rose and Live Action sponsored a rally in front of the Planned Parenthood located two blocks from the White House.

At one point an unidentified pro-abortion man heckled Rose by standing at the podium alongside her yelling, “Stop interfering with women’s healthcare decisions!” Click all photos to enlarge…

Stanek weekend Q: Thoughts on love letter aborting mother wrote to her “Little Thing”?

5b31735c5928d58177df3883e4df1a01Cosmopolitan published a love letter an aborting mother wrote to the baby she was planning to abort October 17, who she called “Little Thing.” So this baby has likely now been suctioned and chopped to little pieces.

The mother made her ghastly intent sound poetic, which Cosmo said proved aborting mothers aren’t “emotionless robots who have not given any thought to the decision they are making.”

Rather, I wanted to vomit. Aside from melodic rubbish, the mother wrote a lot that didn’t make sense, such as “I promise I will see you again, and next time, you can call me Mom.”

Where, in heaven? She thinks God will reward her for killing her baby by letting them cosmically float together again in the afterlife, where the Mom can live in blissful eternity with the child she murdered?

Or perhaps she believes in reincarnation, imagining her aborted baby would want to return to her savage uterus for a do-over. Does she think she deserves this reward?

I don’t know. In my mind this letter was a psychotic, dissociated, very disturbing mess wrapped in a pretty bow. What do you see?

Pro-life blog buzz 10-17-14

pro-lifeby Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

  • Pro-Life Action League says now, more than ever, we need to use the images of abortion victims in pro-life outreach:

    Our opponents want the average person to think of abortion not just as something to be tolerated, but as something good. Needless to say, they definitely don’t want people to think about the unborn babies who are victimized by abortion. Indeed, they don’t want people to think abortion has any victims in the first place.Which is precisely why we must continue to show the pictures of abortion victims in the public square, for nothing elicits sympathy like pictures of the victims of injustice.

Pro-life vid: Media complains pro-life sign at abortion clinic “near a school”

by Kelli

Another display featuring abortion victims is drawing fire, this time in Albuquerque, New Mexico, home of the infamous Southwestern Womens Options late-term abortion clinic.

While this local news report from seems to vilify pro-lifers for placing a graphic display near an elementary school, if you closely watch the video, you’ll see that the sign is directly in front of the abortion clinic.

Pro-lifer Tara Shaver of Protest ABQ responds to parents’ concerns in the video by saying, “[School children are] not our targeted audience. I would think that a more valid concern would be what’s actually happening so near to a school.”

What do you think? Is this a valid concern about school children’s vulnerable eyes, or is the media trying to trash pro-lifers by telling half-truths about a sign that’s been in this location for two years?

Email with your video suggestions.

Bishop: Write in “Mother Teresa” to protest pro-choice candidates

Mother Teresaby Carder

The leader of Rhode Island’s Catholics is suggesting that voters could write in Mother Teresa’s name or sit out the Nov. 4 election because the candidates aren’t “terribly promising” on the abortion issue.

In a piece posted online Wednesday in The Rhode Island Catholic diocesan newspaper, Bishop Thomas Tobin said that writing in Mother Teresa or Pope Francis in protest would send a signal that voters want anti-abortion candidates.

Pro-life news brief 10-16-14

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • The New York Times covers Planned Parenthood’s continuing attempts to corner the market on abortion. They’re building a $9 million facility in Queens:

    While there are other women’s health centers in Queens that offer abortions, the absence of a Planned Parenthood was “something that had to be corrected,” Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, Democrat of Queens, said.

  • Katha Pollitt is out and about promoting her new book on abortion. The latest is this Huffington Post column excerpted from her book where she claims, “We need to see abortion as an urgent practical decision that is just as moral as the decision to have a child — indeed, sometimes more moral” and “Actually, abortion is part of being a mother and of caring for children….”
  • Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives abortion clinic is re-opening at a new location after the old clinic couldn’t meet standards set forth in Alabama’s Women’s Health and Safety Act of 2013. If you watch the video of the newscast you can see a sign on a door which reads, “NO CHILDREN ALLOWED IN THE BUILDING!!!”

Woman finds out at six months she’s pregnant with rare twins

twinsby Kelli

I had really sharp pain in my left side and went into the doctor, and they said we think you might be pregnant. They told me I was six months and told me to get down to the ER. They did an ultrasound and told me it was twins….

They’re both just little miracles [and] they’re so cute[;] it could have been so many things that went wrong that didn’t.

~ Shelby Magnani, an Iowa woman who went six months without knowing she was pregnant with monoamniotic twins (who share one placenta and one amniotic sac) Anna and Ava, as quoted by Global News, October 14
