Blog break

Due to my heavy speaking schedule as well as my mother-in-law’s very poor health, I will not blog here for the next six weeks. As able, I will blog on ProLifeBlogs.com, which is a great pro-life source. I will continue to send my weekly newsletters with links to my WorldNetDaily.com columns, so please do sign […]

The Muslim connection to France’s underpopulation crisis $ handout

Addendum to my previous post… Hyscience quotes the American Thinker on another point, drawn from a Washington Times piece yesterday that included this: Given France’s egalitarian ideals, the notion of creating perks to attract professional mothers did not go down well with the socialist opposition…. Demographic trends in Muslim and non-Muslim communities are rarely mentioned […]

Why doesn’t MSM call it an “underpopulation crisis”?

The Chicago Sun-Times reports today that France will offer new financial incentives for mothers to have third children. Reports the Sun-Times: France isn’t alone in worrying about the need to encourage births. Across Europe [there is]… a decline in fertility rates that some fear could lead to economic decline. In the 25-nation European Union, the […]

Other side agrees: “Roe was terribly reasoned”

A Fox News story yesterday reported: The two vacancies on the Supreme Court have activists on both sides of the abortion debate sounding the death knell of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling overturning state laws that criminalized abortion. But some legal scholars who support abortion rights say that may not be such a […]

CA’s stem cell initiative grows more mired in the muck

Not only pro-life and pro-fiscally responsible government groups are raising red flags about CA’s $3 billion ($6 billion with interest) stem cell initiative. Read Capitol Weekly News’ September 15 piece, “Stem cell research: cutting-edge science or corporate subsidies, courtesy of voters?” (reprinted on page 2). Also read a very strong editorial in the September 18 […]

The rape/incest card in parental notification

Abortion marketers have successfully persuaded many Americans who would normally believe otherwise to call themselves “pro-choice” because of their concern about rape and incest victims. Although the number of mothers aborting for rape/incest is no more than 1% according to the research arm of Planned Parenthood, Alan Guttmacher, (13,000 of 1.3 million annually), pro-aborts hold […]

Fall speaking schedule

Tuesday I kicked off my autumn speaking schedule at the annual fundraising banquet for the New Life Pregnancy Center in Decatur, IL, with over 500 people attending. A reporter from the Decatur Herald & Review covered the event (reprinted on page 2). Some pro-lifers are afraid to speak with the press. My experience is that […]

March of the Pro-Aborts

A September 13 New York Times article set the stage. March of the Penguins is now the second highest grossing documentary of all time, thanks in large part to its popularity among conservatives. This intrigued the NYT, I’m sure in no small measure because the highest grossing documentary is Farenheit 911, made so by liberals. […]

New WND column: “Darth Durbin”

Many will be surprised that infamously pro-abortion U.S. Senator Dick Durbin was once a warm-blooded pro-lifer. My column today tracks the demise of one of many political figures who sold their soul to get ahead in the Democrat Party, with an interesting paper trail called the Durbin Abortion Papers provided by National Right to Life.

New WND column: “Throwing babies out with the floodwater”

My column today on WND.com, “Throwing babies out with the floodwater,” begins: The good news is that Hurricane Katrina destroyed five of nine Louisiana abortion mills, although their displaced vermin were scurrying around shelters within 72 hours handing out free morning-after pills and abortions. Here, have a little more death and destruction – no charge! […]

One of the tricky parts about medical abortion is that these drugs work all the way through a pregnancy, although they become less effective and the rate of complication rises in the course of pregnancy. So it is not recommended to have a second-trimester medical abortion without the supervision of a doctor. It’s not as if someone couldn’t try. But it is certainly a risk. It’s not happening, but theoretically it could.

There’s also a deeper question here. If you know there is a risk someone can misuse a drug, what do you do about it? One of the things that people who advocate for medical abortions say is that there are drugs like Tylenol on the shelves of every pharmacy that anyone could buy and overdose on and kill themselves. You can buy bleach. It doesn’t mean we make those substances unavailable.

What do you do with the possibility that women might misuse these drugs? Do you take it away from them? Or do you trust them?

~ New York Times writer Emily Bazelon, responding to the question, “Could the women who are requesting abortion drugs from Women on Web lie about how far along in their pregnancies they are?”, as quoted in “Behind the Cover Story: Emily Bazelon on Medical Abortion Through the Mail,” The 6th Floor, September 1
