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 […]

Quotation-Timothy-S-Goeglein-culture-politics-Meetville-Quotes-216001I think as we descend into more cultural and societal chaos on the road to the last day, it will be more and more important for those of us in politics to decide which comes first, faith or politics. They can be balanced. I try, sometimes fail, but keep trying. A growing number of people on the right are no longer trying to balance. They are either going completely out of the public square, or all in without Christ in their heart or on their tongue thinking they can just visit him on Sunday.

We should find balance. We may fail, but we should keep trying. We should not recede from the public square and a growing number of conservatives are showing more willingness to drive from the public square those who urge greater measures of Christian grace and charity than they prefer.

On the last day there will be a narrow gate. That makes me pessimistic about my future in politics and the future voices on the right when cultural and social issues come to the forefront. But for those here and elsewhere, though I may fall short because I’m a sinner, I’m with Jesus first and all the rest comes after.

~ Erick Erickson, Red State, August 21
