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.)

One of four remaining clinics that provide abortions in Kansas has closed amid a hostile political climate and financial challenges.

Its outgoing manager said Monday the decision was also prompted by a “lack of gratitude” from a young generation of women who take its abortion services for granted.

~ The Wichita Eagle, July 28

Sure, a woman’s main concern on a day-to-day basis may not be abortion rights. Her main concern may be basic healthcare for herself and her kids, or something else. But she has the luxury of abortion rights not being her main concern because it’s been an absolute guaranteed right in this country for 40 years. That means every woman in this country under the age of 40 never had to worry about getting an illegal, unsafe abortion….

That’s a long time to get lulled into a sense of security that that right is never going away — and therefore we don’t need to make its protection a priority….

~ Carla Hall, bemoaning the fact that women are taking their “abortion rights” for granted, The Los Angeles Times, July 29
