New WND column: “The upside of female feticide”

It would seem to be the greatest irony of abortion, that the foremost tool feminists say will facilitate women’s equality with men is actually the foremost weapon used to kill them. The crisis of female feticide is growing to such an extent in Third World countries that by 2020 there will be more unmarried Chinese […]

Peace meets jest: Pro-aborts antagonize pro-lifers with violent threats and graphic displays

The San Francisco Chronicle headline today downplays the pro-abort violence at yesterday’s March as “boisterous,” but the story and photos more accurately portray the truth. Th[e pro-life] voice was, by design, mostly silent. Marchers were urged to leave photos of aborted fetuses and signs equating abortion to murder at home. And at a rally before […]

Bugs Bunny alive!

The headline was buried in this NewScience.com article today reporting skepticism on London cloning researcher Chris Shaw’s recent claims of success of finding a way around the shortage of human eggs needed for experimentation. While Shaw’s boasts were called into question, his research wasn’t, which was to “derive stem cells from embryos cloned using rabbit […]

It’s not just pro-lifers revolted by Blagojevich’s “executive fiats”

From today’s Statehouse Insider in the State Journal-Register: Some lawmakers, and not just Republicans, are getting concerned about Blagojevich’s “Who needs the legislature?” approach to governing. Can’t get the General Assembly to go along with funding stem cell research? Hide money in the budget and then create a program by executive fiat after lawmakers leave […]

New WND column: “How cloning exploits women: Scientist forced to donate, dissect own eggs”

Junior scientist Park Eul-soon suffered the most personally devastating blunder of her career when in 2003 she accidentally spilled a dish of human eggs while conducting experiments in the South Korean lab of then-clone king Hwang Woo-suk. For that mishap, Hwang coerced Park, a subordinate Ph.D. student in her mid-20s, to replace the lost eggs […]

My favorite Christmas gift

My 20-year-old daughter Daena surprised me Christmas morning by framing a group of photos of us enjoying our favorite pastime together. The photos, taken by dad/husband Rich, are 1) at a Willow Springs park, May 2005; 2) on a Barcelona bench, April 2005; and 3) on Aunt Rosemarie’s couch after Christmas dinner, 2004 (Mama Elf […]

National Democrat Party – perceived as “morally bankrupt” – recruits pro-life/-2A candidates

From today’s Bloomberg.com: Republicans have long put Democrats on the defensive on cultural issues such as abortion, guns and gay marriage…. Because of the “lesson of 2004,” Democrats are recruiting “values” candidates. “There are some in the national Democratic leadership who think perhaps choice has become too much of a litmus test in the party, […]

Stem cell riddle of the day

Question: Which type of stem cells do you think is being reported in this January 3 Australian Broadcasting Corporation story? “These stem cells have the ability to… change as they grow into many different kinds of cells. Already researchers have been able to turn them into cartilage, bone and fat. Now they believe they can […]

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.
