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 […]

On RadioInsideScoop.com tonight

I will be on Mark Levine’s RadioInsideScoop.com at 6:00 p.m. tonight discussing the over-the-counter status of Plan B, the morning-after pill. Other guest will be Dr. Susan Wood, who resigned from her post as Director of the FDA’s Office of Women’s Health to protest the FDA’s “politicization” of Plan B. In addition to radio stations […]

On WYLL today

I’ll be on Scott Thomas’ show today on WYLL-AM from 4p-5p CST to discuss pro-life issues. The show can be heard via the Internet.

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 […]

womensissuesby Kelli

Forty years later, having won most of their early battles, the current “women’s issue” crowd now maintains there’s a war on us that won’t end until we can obtain contraception and abortion without so much as a co-payment even for women who can afford an education at Georgetown, and it must be paid for even by people who have always maintained conscientious objection.

Meanwhile, many of us have refused to assimilate, though we rarely hold press conferences about it. Bearing the wounds of the sexual revolution, we think, for our daughters’ sakes, there’s still room for discussion. Abortion and contraception (free at last, or mostly) aren’t the best we have to offer our girls….

We think the abortion-contraception damsel in distress dirge is unworthy of us, and quite disingenuous coming from women perfectly able to pay.

Our “women’s issue” sisters may be admirable for their tenacity in defining the debate, but they do not define us. We take issue with their version of “women’s issues” and we can speak for ourselves.
