Out-of-town notice

LA Times: The constitutionality of Roe

The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday on a hearing held June 23 in the US Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution re: the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade. That these questions are being openly asked and debated in the US Senate is profound….

Embrace the life God offers

Dr. Frank forwarded this column, published in Canada’s Western Catholic Reporter, June 20. There is no Internet version available: Embrace the life God offers By Mark Pickup Sitting closer to the end of my life than its beginning, I find myself wishing I’d had more children. Deep into the sorrow and pain of progressive multiple […]

This ain’t your sweet little ole blue-haired neighbor’s pro-life club any more

The inference in this comment on Rich Miller’s blog… But now Stanek and her allies have given Madigan a reason to strike back at them. If Speaker Madigan makes life miserable for pro-life forces over the next few years (and I suspect he will) they have no one to blame for Madigan’s opposition to them […]

Miller’s blog mob

My, my. Rich Miller’s blog readers are easily antagonized. For their responses to my post yesterday about Michael Madigan (and my response to theirs), go here.

The Pro-Life Case for Rudy Giuliani for Prez

Interesting read on RedState.org. Meanwhile, NY Gov. George Pataki, who also has national aspirations, hasn’t indicated whether he’ll sign a pedophile thrill pill bill into law (making the morning after pill available over-the-counter, even to young girls) that the NY legislature approved earlier this week. Pataki’s reportedly feeling the pressure from both sides. It’s interesting […]

Operation Rescue West reports that not one but two abortion mills owned by Tammy Sobieski are being closed. Sobieski’s WomanCare abortion clinic in West Palm Beach has been evicted, allegedly because she misrepresented her plans for the site to the owner. Poor Tammy. She must have been preoccupied trying to cover for her lies, because […]

Take Fox News poll

Fox News is currently conducting a poll that asks, “What constitutional amendment do we need most?” Banning abortion is one of the five options and is currently in first place at 36%. Go here to vote. Hat tip: Denise at Ohio Right to Life

Baby, baby

Britney Spears released a new single June 14, “Someday (I Will Understand),” a song she wrote to her prenatal baby. Baby upstages Britney in the music video, stealing every scene in which s/he appears inside Mom’s beautiful, 5-months-pregnant belly. Words to song on page 2.

Who loves you, baby?

Reuters reported today: The most-used Internet site, has shut down all its user-created Internet chat rooms amid concerns that adults were using the sites to try to have sex with minors…. The user-created chat rooms in question, where Internet users converse in real time, had names including “Girls 13 And Under For Older Guys” and […]

war-on-women

I’m a pro-choice individual who actually acknowledges that those who disagree with me are not raging, full blown misogynists. What’s my reasoning you might ask? I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I don’t buy the idea that people who are pro-life hold that position because they seek to control women’s bodies. This is a myth perpetuated by many Democrats as part of the “War on Women.” To attack the pro-life position as a “War on Women” is to completely ignore the much more widely cited reason for being pro-life, which is concern that fetus’s [sic] being aborted are in fact alive and sentient….

Here’s another reason why pro-life individuals are not inherently sexist. It’s seemingly obvious but is almost completely ignored in the abortion debate. Tens of millions of women are pro-life. According to Gallup polling, as many as 41 percent of women identify as pro-life. That’s almost half!

Did Anthony Brown and Mark Udall intend to convince voters that almost half of all American women are self-hating sexists, Hell-bent on waging war on… themselves? Regardless of their intentions, women saw through their illogical and downright dishonest allegations. Both candidates lost easily winnable races.

Women are smart. Democrats know that right? I mean come on! You’ve got some of the smartest women in the world as your rising stars…. Women see through cynical pandering.

Next time, try running on your accomplishments. It’s not like you have a dearth of other issues to talk about. Same sex marriage and the minimum wage have been trending your way for instance. However, if you use those issues, please try to refrain from calling people against same sex marriage homophobic and those against an increased the minimum wage classist. Instead, try actually having an honest debate about the policies themselves. You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Similarly, you’ll catch more votes with good policies, than with disingenuous accusations of prejudice.
