Stanek weekend Q: Is abortion your litmus test when voting?

voteprolife16Leslie at The Passionate Prolifer Turned Abolitionist took exception this week to KNUS talk show host Krista Kafer, also a fellow at Colorado Christian University, who said, according to Leslie, “she wouldn’t have a problem voting for a ‘pro-choice’ candidate since abortion is just one of a number of issues women care about.”

Leslie went on to list 10 reasons why such thinking is “deeply flawed.”

Are you a one-issue voter when it comes to abortion?

On a related issue, in an apparent violation of a 2004 USCCB resolution stating that “Catholic institutions should not honor pro-abortion politicians or provide them with a stage that would suggest support for their actions,” the Connecticut diocesan newspaper publicly praised pro-abortion Democrat Congressman Joe Courtney, who holds a 100% rating from NARAL, for his work giving amnesty to illegal immigrants.

Was this an example of laying down with dogs to wake up with fleas?

Can one vote for, work with, and publicly praise a pro-abortion politician?

  • Americans United for Life remarks on the Iowa court win upholding the ban on webcam abortions in the state. The ban was put in place by the Iowa Board of Medicine:

    During the litigation, Planned Parenthood admitted that, under its preferred method of chemical abortion, a physician never physically meets with a woman. Moreover, staff members — such as certified medical assistants (CMAs) — conduct physical exams or ultrasounds instead of doctors or other licensed healthcare providers.

Faithful should stay in politics but remember to make Jesus first

Quotation-Timothy-S-Goeglein-culture-politics-Meetville-Quotes-216001I think as we descend into more cultural and societal chaos on the road to the last day, it will be more and more important for those of us in politics to decide which comes first, faith or politics. They can be balanced. I try, sometimes fail, but keep trying. A growing number of people on the right are no longer trying to balance. They are either going completely out of the public square, or all in without Christ in their heart or on their tongue thinking they can just visit him on Sunday.

Slimy pro-abortion congressional candidate mails condoms to pro-lifers

James Woods condom strategy to pro-life advocates

Why do I think Democrat pro-abortion congressional candidate James Woods is slimy?

Aside from the fact Woods retaliated against a pro-life letter writing campaign by mailing condoms back to pro-lifers, he introduced his condom strategy on Facebook with “Got Wood(s)?” What person running for U.S. Congress goes gutter like that?

Woods is also a card-carrying atheist, which may help explain his lack of decorum. Here’s the letter he sent with his condoms:

Journalism prof: Abortion not difficult choice “for most women”

That-Was-Easy-Buttonby Kelli

… [E]ven supposedly “pro-choice” forces buy into the idea that shame is attached to sexual women. Abortion… is described as being a “difficult decision,” one that women struggle with if they are faced with an unwanted pregnancy. That is simply not true for most women. It’s not a difficult decision. If you don’t believe in abortion, it’s not a difficult decision because you’re not going to do it.

Pro-life news brief 8-20-14

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • “Intellectual” Richard Dawkins told someone on Twitter that bringing a child with Down Syndrome to birth is “immoral.”
  • An Alabama abortion clinic (which couldn’t meet safety standards at its current location) has been given permission to relocate.
  • Martin Haskell’s abortion clinic in Sharonville, Ohio, is dropping its appeal. They’ll stop performing surgical abortions on Friday. The clinic apparently plans on trying to stay in business by offering RU-486 chemical abortions.

Abortion enthusiasts promote illegal abortions

190g419t75vcljpg

During the last week of May abortion proponent Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traversed southern Texas and upper Mexico to film footage for an upcoming documentary, Trapped.

Trapped will “look at the impact of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws in the southern United States, and their disproportionate effect on women living in poverty.”

There are currently no abortion clinics in the Rio Grande Valley, which borders Mexico. The nearest one in the U.S. is 230 miles north in San Antonio.

The group filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Misoprostol is available only by prescription in the U.S. and can only be dispensed by doctors for abortions. But it can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico.

After the purchase, NNAF tweeted photos, along with instructions on how to use Misoprostol illegally to self-induce an abortion…

More human cells - mostly skin cells - probably die when you dump a bucket of ice water over your head than are actually in a four-day-old embryo (pictured here above). If anti-choicers are really worried about cellular life, telling people to stop killing their skin cells for those greedy ALS sufferers would be the more direct approach.

~ Amanda Marcotte, mocking pro-life opposite to the ALS ice bucket challenge, because some of ALS’s funding goes toward embryonic stem cell research, via Slate, August 22
