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 […]

war-on-women

I’m a pro-choice individual who actually acknowledges that those who disagree with me are not raging, full blown misogynists. What’s my reasoning you might ask? I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I don’t buy the idea that people who are pro-life hold that position because they seek to control women’s bodies. This is a myth perpetuated by many Democrats as part of the “War on Women.” To attack the pro-life position as a “War on Women” is to completely ignore the much more widely cited reason for being pro-life, which is concern that fetus’s [sic] being aborted are in fact alive and sentient….

Here’s another reason why pro-life individuals are not inherently sexist. It’s seemingly obvious but is almost completely ignored in the abortion debate. Tens of millions of women are pro-life. According to Gallup polling, as many as 41 percent of women identify as pro-life. That’s almost half!

Did Anthony Brown and Mark Udall intend to convince voters that almost half of all American women are self-hating sexists, Hell-bent on waging war on… themselves? Regardless of their intentions, women saw through their illogical and downright dishonest allegations. Both candidates lost easily winnable races.

Women are smart. Democrats know that right? I mean come on! You’ve got some of the smartest women in the world as your rising stars…. Women see through cynical pandering.

Next time, try running on your accomplishments. It’s not like you have a dearth of other issues to talk about. Same sex marriage and the minimum wage have been trending your way for instance. However, if you use those issues, please try to refrain from calling people against same sex marriage homophobic and those against an increased the minimum wage classist. Instead, try actually having an honest debate about the policies themselves. You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Similarly, you’ll catch more votes with good policies, than with disingenuous accusations of prejudice.
