by Hans Johnson

At this year’s March for Life Youth Rally, a short film made entirely by the young members of Angelic Films was presented. In it a couple argues about whether they can afford their soon-to-be-born child when they are reminded that someone else is there.

  • At New Feminism, Marjorie Murphy Campbell shares her wonderful sign photos from the West Coast Walk for Life in San Francisco. She notes the march has become safer and has grown in size in the city that is most known for its outrageous displays during marches.

My big take-away from attending a pro-choice rally

image (7)I was afforded a unique opportunity on January 24 to unobtrusively observe a pro-choice rally.

I had been invited to speak in Austin by Texas Right to Life at a two-day conference for pro-life college students, which intersected on Saturday afternoon with the annual Texas Rally for Life.

Almost bizarrely, the pro-life rally was held on the south lawn of the capitol building at the same time a pro-abortion rally was held on the north lawn.

So, since I’ve attended quite a few pro-life rallies in my time, I thought I’d check out the other side’s.

New abortion play hopes to normalize abortion

Out of Silence playby Carder

Girls need to hear success stories. People need to know that women have abortions every day and they go on and live their lives….

I had an abortion 15 years ago, and I’m fine. I have a great life!

And now I’ve got children.

~ Alicia, whose abortion story was featured in the latest pro-abortion play, Out of Silence, Think Progress, January 22

Sunday funnies 1-25-15

Good morning, and Happy Sunday!

I was disappointed that, to my knowledge, no conservative political cartoonist addressed the 20-week abortion ban scandal in the GOP-controlled House.

That aside, 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.

On the topic of abortion on this 42nd anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, here are two. The first is actually an illustration by Alexander Hunter of the Washington Times to accompany an op ed by Ken Blackwell, “Aborting black America”:

Stanek wkend Q: Will the House pass the 20-wk abortion ban this year?

mbn_foetus_200_280_55By now everyone knows what went down Thursday: GOP House leadership panicked and pulled the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, after promising the pro-life world they would pass it on the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, the same day hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers were descending on Washington for the March for Life.

I’m told these same spineless, convictionless wimps are promising to introduce a retooled ban, but our people are now demanding a timeline, and they want the clock to start ticking SOON.

So what do you think? Will it happen? Also take the poll….

As Republicans pee all over themselves in fear, Obama declares child murder a constitutional right

boehner-cowardReally driving home this shameful dichotomy yesterday, as Republicans peed themselves in fear over the prospect of appearing slightly opposed to murdering babies, President Barack Obama issued a radical pro-abortion statement declaring child murder a “core constitutional right.”

Once again, while the GOP scrambles to find the “middle” of the abortion debate, the left makes it clear that they intend to make no concessions. They want all abortion legal, and they want it free, and they want us to celebrate it. And they’ll insist on all of that while telling those simpering, gullible Republicans that they have to be balanced on the issue.

What the Media says »

by Carder

Obi Wan KenobiIn 1914 Agnes Cuff, a flighty and unstable young woman with few prospects and little money found herself pregnant. The father didn’t want to be involved. She was alone, shamed, poor and pregnant.

Today she would be encouraged to get herself to an abortion clinic and end the unwanted pregnancy.

Instead a little boy was born….

If abortion had been easy and legal in England in 1914 the world would never have experienced the witty, smart, subtle art and the quiet, steady witness of Alec Guinness

… and Star Wars would have had an enormous void.

~ Fr. Dwight Longenecker on the backstory of the late actor Alec Guinness, Standing On My Head, January 21
