The first nonparent to recognize Jesus as Messiah was a fetus

Queston: Who was the first person besides Jesus’ parents, Joseph and Mary, to recognize Jesus as Messiah? Answer: John the Baptist, when he was a fetus and Jesus was but an embryo. The Gospel of Luke tells of a fasincating incident that occurred when John the Baptist was a 6-month-old fetus. John’s Aunt Mary came […]

ISMS opposes pharmacies dispensing emergency contraceptives without prescription

As a perennial Top Five PAC contributor to political campaigns, the Illinois State Medical Society is one of the most influential lobbying groups in the state. ISMS’s 2006 candidate questionnaire includes its position against pharmacists dispensing the morning after pill without a prescription. To read the question in its entirety, see page 2. ISMS’s position […]

Blagojevich outrageously advocates shielding pedophiles and rapists

Yesterday, Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s spokeswoman Abby Ottenhoff defended his position against a parental notification law by outrageously advocating that victims be kept trapped and silenced from receiving legal help. According to NBC5.com, “[Ottenhoff] said the governor does not support such a notification law because he believes minors who become pregnant after they were raped by […]

Big guns, deep pockets

The new Gidwitz-Rauschenberger alliance increases conservative gubernatorial odds to win in both the primary (even if both Brady and Oberweis stay in) and the general. Social conservatives now have fewer to choose between in March. They will never vote for pro-gay, pro-abortion Gidwitz, no matter with whom he teams. At any rate, Rausch – according […]

JBT lost the election on November 29

Cross posted on Illinoize. The ILGOP thought Judy Baar Topinka’s entrance into the gubernatorial primary would “dramatically recast” the GOP’s prospects for recapturing the mansion. But the ILGOP apparently did not consider that abortion proponents would oppose JBT in the general, thereby sealing the deal for Blagojevich. Carole Marin agreed with that potential, saying Blagojevich’s […]

Schock veers left II

Have just received word Rep. Schock agreed to co-sponsor HB4156 and HB4157. Thanks very much.

Shock: Schock veers left

Wow, that was fast. It was only a year ago that Aaron Schock was the homeschooled wunderkind of the conservative movement. But I have become suspicious in recent months that the ILGOP establishment has been bottle-feeding the boy combine kool-aid when he rebuffed six (count ‘em six – 9/22, 9/23, 10/24, 11/14, 11/16, 11/21) phone […]

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
