Stanek weekend Q: Is feminism losing to multiculturalism?

article-1319804-0B952A16000005DC-450_306x423The hypocrisy of feminists when it comes to the true war on women in Muslim cultures is on flagrant display.

On a daily basis we hear of atrocities committed against women, or shocking prejudices displayed against women, to utter silence on the Left.

Meanwhile, feminists find ghost sexism in every nook and cranny of the West.

I had chalked their hypocrisy up to abhorrence of Judeo-Christian values to the point of absurdly supporting Islamic values.

But an April 30 article by M. G. Oprea at The Federalist entitled, “Feminism is losing its cage fight with multiculturalism,” points to something much more obvious:

Hypocrisy much? Planned Parenthood CEO brags about growing number of male supporters

3044265-inline-i-1-the-millions-of-patients-we-see-each-year-theyre-not-coming-because-tInterviewer: What’s happening with Planned Parenthood and young men?

Richards: It’s one of our fastest-growing demographics. They come mostly for STD treatment and testing. A lot of places, if you want nonstigmatized and nonjudgmental care, you come to Planned Parenthood. And then on the activist side, it has radically shifted. Four years ago, half of the activists we added were men.

Pro-life blog buzz 5-1-15

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

  • ProLifeBlogs links to a CNS News report about pro-abortion Hillary Clinton’s recent speech in which she claimed every life matters. Clinton was, of course, not speaking about the preborn. (After all, she “told the audience at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit last week that ‘religious beliefs’ must be changed for the sake of abortion.”) No, she was speaking about cases in which Black men have been killed by police officers. Clinton is a good example of the compartmentalization of abortion proponents. Perhaps if preborn babies could vote or donate to political campaigns, they could warrant some consideration from her.

Pro-life vid of the day: Out of the mouths of babes

by Kelli

ProWomanProLife shares a video created by Online For Life, in which children are asked various questions, eventually leading to some simple yet profound reflections on life:

Sometimes the most insightful and remarkable statements come from children. We have all been witness to a child whose keen observation, humility and complete innocence causes them to spout great and eternal truths at the most uncanny and opportune (or inopportune) moments in life. Often these truths, which are so obvious to the child, have been have sullied by adults with our greed, our cynicism and our pride.

Nick Loeb on IVF embryos: “The ability to create life is special”

Sofia-Vergara-and-Nick-Loebby Carder

When I was in my 20s, I had a girlfriend who had an abortion, and the decision was entirely out of my hands. Ever since, I have dreamed about a boy at the age he would be now.

Later, I was married for four years to a woman with whom I tried to have children, with help from a fertility specialist. The difficulties we had made me feel, more than ever, that the ability to create life was special. When she left me, as I was running for a seat in the Florida State Senate, my dreams of a family were shattered.

~ Businessman Nick Loeb making the case for why he should be able to use his frozen embryos created with ex-fiancee Sofia Vergara in a New York Times op-ed titled, “Our Embryos Have a Right to Live,” via The Huffington Post, April 30

Pro-life vid of day: Prayer sustained pregnant woman with cancer

roorda

by Hans Johnson

Stacy Roorda was stunned to get a diagnosis of Stage Four breast cancer – and then in a follow-up test came the news that she was pregnant. With the aggressive cancer feeding on the hormone essential to the baby, she was urged to abort the child so they could start intensive chemotherapy immediately.

A devout Christian, she was sustained by a prayer chain in her church, and boldly told the doctors: “I wouldn’t give up my other two children, I’m not giving up this one. So you need to figure out a plan B.” When the doctors left them alone:

Abortionist quack sells clinic to sexually abusive abortionist

steven-brighamby Kelli

Brigham sold his interests to his medical director, Vikram Kaji, whose medical license was suspended in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s for sexually abusing patients and wrongly prescribing controlled substances.

In 2013, the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners found that Kaji, 79, “had failed to adequately fulfill his responsibilities as medical director,” a job that includes overseeing controlled substances. Kaji admitted he had suffered a stroke that had affected his memory and vision, and was ordered to undergo “neuropsychological evaluation,” according to public records….

Pennsylvania banished Brigham [pictured right] after years of intermittent sanctions for flouting health and safety laws, particularly by employing unqualified or unlicensed workers in his clinics.

Among those workers: Kaji, a Bombay-trained obstetrician-gynecologist.

Kaji went to work for Brigham in the mid-1990s while his license was restricted in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Kaji admitted having sex with a patient in his Yardley office, improperly prescribing controlled substances for her, and giving two other patients improper rectal or breast exams.

“Immediatist v Incrementalist” debate analysis, Part I: Let babies die today, we can save the rest later”

2015-04-29_1141Read my Prologue here.

The most disturbing aspect of the “immediatist” anti-abortion movement is that which is hardest to get its followers to acknowledge.

That is, by opposing incremental legislation they are condemning babies to die, some in excruciating ways, who would otherwise be saved.

Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment…

he who looks at the earth, and it trembles…

I will sing to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Excerpts from Psalm 104, New International Version, as quoted by singer/songwriter Chris Tomblin in his song, “How Great Is Our God”…
