Untermenschen

Reader Joe P. drew my attention to this photo taken in April 1945 of Jewish children and a baby in a mass grave at Nordhausen, Germany (courtesy of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum). Joe compared that Holocaust to our modernday Holocaust of babies, writing that the Nazis called Jewish people “untermenschen,” translated “subhumans.” Interestingly, when […]

See the rooster crow…

Rep. Mike Castle (D-DE), who sponsored the embryonic stem cell bill in the House, bragged at a press conference Wednesday he knew precisely how members were going to vote beforehand. Except he didn’t. Hard lobbying by pro-life groups peeled away some of his votes at the last minute. HR 810 still passed, but it didn’t […]

Hillary & Howard lie about Bush abortion stats

John Cusey of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus writes today: Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean continue to promote the myth that the number of abortions has increased since President Bush was elected. Howard Dean said last weekend on Meet the Press, “You know that abortions have gone up 25% since George Bush was President?”, and yesterday […]

This week’s WorldNetDaily.com column: “The worms turned”

My WND.com column today is about the Gang of 14 judicial nominee compromisers – 10 pro-aborts and four pro-lifers – and why they did what they did. Read “The worms turned” exclusively on WorldNetDaily.com.

Mother covers incest by getting daughter abortion

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that the alleged rape of a 17-year-old by her stepfather was covered up by the girl’s mother, who took the girl for an abortion so authorities couldn’t perform a paternity test on the baby. Abortion is a sexual perpetrator’s best friend….

Pro-aborts make startling discoveries…. after abortion

Former Ms. Magazine editor Jennifer Baumgardner writes an enlightening piece in today’s fairfieldweekly.com admitting that young women consider the mainstream abortion movement haggard (“stale”) and out-of-touch (“blank faces” when confronted about “the lack of emotional resources” for post-abortive women). Baumgardner tells of the “innovations” pro-aborts have created to connect with women, such as establishing a […]

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
