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 […]

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
