Irresponsible sex constitutes a “medical emergency”?

Regarding the blog post, ILLINOIZE: It’s a Job, Not a Choice, Yellow Dog Democrat claims that even if pharmacists are protected by IL’s conscience clause law, they would still be mandated to dispense morning after pills even if morally opposed because of this section of the law: Nothing in this Act shall be construed so […]

So much for “choice” in Illinois

KSDK reported last night that Walgreens suspended four Illinois pharmacists without pay November 28 for refusing to dispense the morning after pill. Walgreens said it was forced to take this “drastic action” due to “a new law relating to this type of emergency contraceptive.” Not remarkably, the mainstream media obfuscated what really happened: Earlier this […]

New WND column: “Giving thanks for Right to Life of Michigan”

State and local pro-life organizations form the political and educational nucleus of our movement. The importance of these groups cannot be overstated. Our one strength with politicians is our grassroots. Our one way around liberals and the mainstream press is by direct education. In my opinion, the foremost state pro-life organization is Right to Life […]

Pro-aborts don’t want to talk about this, so let’s

An article in yesterday’s Boston Globe entitled, “The problem with an almost-perfect genetic world,” included this: Supporters of abortion are especially wary of wading into a discussion over the ethics of prenatal testing, lest they be seen as playing into the opposing side in the fraught national debate over abortion rights. The topic was a […]

College newspaper removes “pro-abortion” from description of Planned Parenthood

Bowing to political correctness, editors of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst’s, college newspaper The Daily Collegian have changed the title of an article describing the recent visit of Planned Parenthood’s president from “Pro-abortion group leader gives speech” to “President of Planned Parenthood gives lecture.” On November 10, PP’s interim prez Karen Pearl gave a lecture […]

New WND column: “When Plan B is Plan A”

I received a call this week from a worried pharmacist. I live in a state where pharmacists are required by law to dispense the morning-after-pill even if they have a moral objection. This pharmacist was a sole-supporting mother of two. She said she had managed to avoid being forced to choose between her conscience and […]

Anti-Roe opinions by pro-abort renowns

As we begin public debate over Roe v. Wade via Samuel Alito’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, reporter Timothy Carney has compiled a list of anti-Roe opinions by pro-choice renowns. In light of what’s at stake, what they write is surprisingly – no, shockingly – honest and also provides strong validation. Here’s one example: Ruth […]

Tidbit from Tom Cross’s bloggers’ con call

I caught the last half of Tom Cross’s bloggers’ conference call today, in time to hear a question posed whether he thought abortion and gay rights would be election issues. Part of his response included, “In our caucus, there are a good number that are pro-choice and a larger number that are pro-life.” This acknowledgement […]

Alito: “[T]the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion”

From today’s Washington Times: Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., President Bush’s Supreme Court nominee, wrote that “the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion” in a 1985 document obtained by The Washington Times. “I personally believe very strongly” in this legal position, Mr. Alito wrote on his application to become deputy assistant to […]

Alito and Roe

A few of my pro-life friends are tentatively taking a position against President Bush’s current Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito, because three of four abortion rulings he has made during his tenure as a circuit court judge were anti-life. I’m not. I support Judge Samuel Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Here are a couple […]

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.
