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 […]

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.
