Weekend question

What do you think of US Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist’s July 29 public statement in support of embryonic stem cell research in light of the fact he considers himself pro-life?

Frist twist

I am disappointed in Senator Bill Frist, to say the least. His announced position in favor of embryonic stem cell research today is not only unethical but nonsensical: I am pro-life. I believe human life begins at conception. It is at this moment that the organism is complete — yes, immature — but complete. An […]

CWA and AAPLOG blast FDA re: RU-486

Concerned Women for America included this in a press release today: “Last week’s FDA announcement on RU-486 mentioned the deaths linked to RU-486, but neglected to release information about near-fatal adverse events,” said [Wendy] Wright [CWA’s senior policy director]. Under the Freedom of Information Act , CWA received public documents listing over 600 adverse events. […]

Follow the death dots

Reported The Guardian on July 26: Suicide is the main cause of death among young adults in China, the state media said yesterday in a report that highlights the growing pressures to succeed in love, work and education in one of the world’s fastest changing societies. Referring a recent survey by the health ministry, the […]

Roberts as 4th Supreme Catholic would make all-time high… So what?

Reports Newsmax.com today: If John Roberts is confirmed, he will be the fourth Roman Catholic on the Supreme Court, an all-time high that is focusing attention on how faith might influence law on the high court…. Two of the Catholics on the current court – Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas – are abortion foes. Scalia, […]

AG Roberts: Roe v. Wade is not “settled law”

From a July 26 Associated Press story: [Attorney General Alberto] Gonzales also said that if [Judge John] Roberts were confirmed, he would not be bound by his past statement that the 1973 decision legalizing abortion is settled law. Roberts testified before Congress in 2003 that he considers the Roe v. Wade decision “settled law.” At […]

Columns on Roberts

Ann Coulter began her column yesterday by pulling quotes of praise and scorn on a recent Supreme Court nominee one wouldn’t expect to underpin her point: Just who is John Roberts? David Limbaugh says to let John Roberts answer the questions: “I may be going against the conservative grain here, but I am not as […]

New WND column, “The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s death oath”

My column yesterday on WND.com, “The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s death oath,” drew attention to the JDRF’s exploitation of sick children for funding and loyalty oath children are forced to sign to “embrace” embryonic stem cell research or shut up about it.

NOW’s fraudulent abortion poster women

The National Organization for Women recently posted an Emergency Alert with the headline, “Bush Picks Anti-Roe Nominee… Women’s Lives on the Line.” In the alert, NOW included the photos of four women it said “are the faces of women who died because they could not obtain safe and legal abortions,” below, the obvious inference being […]

The real Nazis

From yesterday’s BellevilleNewsDemocrat.com: (Belleville is in southern Illinois, a Democrat-stronghold, i.e., Durbin territory.)

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.
