Paul Chesser’s opinion piece in today’s Washington Post serves as a reminder: While it is important to change the makeup of the Supreme Court, social conservatives — especially those concerned about abortion — need not and should not be counting on such a change in the judiciary to accomplish their goals. What they ought to [...]
Last week I blogged on NARAL’s decision not to endorse a Dem pro-abortion candidate for VA guv because the guy isn’t bloodthirsty enough. An August 21 piece in dailypress.com draws on this to say neither pro-life nor pro-abort activists may any longer be persuaded by talk without walk. This is good – pressure is good. [...]
Several news organizations, like the Washington Times and CNSNews.com, are reporting on a new stem cell that has been found in placenta. The new cell is “embryoniclike” in that it is “more versatile than [adult stem cells] while avoiding the ethical dilemmas surrounding [embryonic stem cells], according to CNS.
Columnist Jeff Gannon asks a great question: Would pro-choice gays back limits on abortion rights if a mother could terminate pregnancy of a gay fetus? Pro-lifers looking for legislative ideas should pick up on this one. Maine state Rep. Brian Duprey introduced such a bill earlier this year.

Lost in the debate as to how many women should die before waving the red flag over RU-486 should not be the slipshod way it was approved – during the final days of Clinton’s watch, not surprisingly. Before those four too-bad-so-sad CA women died (nowhere else, that’s odd), CWA, AAPLOG, and CMA filed a citizens [...]
I blogged the other day that pro-aborts have discovered a winning angle in the emergency contraceptive controversy: tying together birth control pills and ECs. They say, and rightfully so, that if a pharmacist and/or pharmacy have no moral problem dispensing birth control pills, they cannot claim to have a problem dispensing ECs on the grounds [...]
