Responses to yesterday’s WND column

I received many responses via email to yesterday’s WorldNetDaily.com column, “Sioux Tribe plans to scalp its own.” Some follow below; I’ll post more tomorrow. Many respondents appear intent on carrying on the theme of yesterday’s piece – stupidity. I’m not surprised but have no patience for pro-aborts who will say anything to detract from a […]

New WND column: “Sioux Tribe plans to scalp its own

In 1876, the Oglala Sioux were responsible for massacring Gen. George Custer and his men at Little Bighorn, mutilating and scalping them as they went. What a difference 130 years make. Today the Oglala Sioux plan to massacre their own children, mutilating and scalping them as they go. Tribe president Cecilia Fire Thunder says that […]

Liberal extinction, by the numbers

New America Foundation fellow Phillip Longman in USA Today on March 13 (synopsized from a longer piece in the March/April issue of Foreign Policy magazine) says basically this: Population equals power; therefore, conservatives/traditionalists have historically and will soon again inherit the earth. Writes Longman: Childlessness and small families are increasingly the norm today among progressive […]

Harvard fetusphobia: Pro-aborts destroy Elena posters

Most interesting about the controversy surrounding Harvard Right to Life’s preborn poster campaign is what pro-abort students are saying about its “Elena” poster series. This educational effort has resulted in repeated vandalism…. From the Oh Harvard blog, February 16: I think I have a right to not see that crap on my way to breakfast, […]

Love the headline

Gotta the story headline in today’s Sunday Times out of London: “US states join abortion revolt to bring back ban.”

Joe and Pete

“I might say, ‘This is Pete; he juggles. Your son will never juggle because he won’t have any arms. He’ll be cut to pieces.’” ~ Pro-Life Action League founder Joe Scheidler, on what he says to mothers approaching abortion mills, while showing them photos of his grandchildren and aborted babies, as quoted by the Chicago […]

I followed my trainer to the lab where products of conception (P.O.C.) were inspected to make sure the doctor removed all the bits that, if left behind, could cause an infection. My trainer made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass baking pan. At 10 weeks and beyond, those appendages are formed and clearly recognizable.

It was all so heavy. The loneliness of those little arms and legs. That girl, so clearly suffering during the procedure. Before my job at the clinic, my stance on abortion had been so black and white. I had been firmly pro-choice for as long as I could remember. Was it possible that working here could change my mind?…

Abortion is fraught with so much negative sentiment, and in a sense, abortion is plucking a life from existence that has yet to have the opportunity to thrive. No one is claiming it’s pleasant. There is nothing black and white about abortion. It’s every shade of gray. But for us pro-choicers, the woman’s life trumps the embryo or fetus. That’s the bottom line. We place value on a woman’s ability to know what is best for her. It simply needs to be a safe and legal option. When I started at the clinic, all I saw was the individual moment of pain, but over the years I began to see a much richer portrait — women coming out the other side, relieved, even if it was simply a relief to have the procedure behind them. They could go back to their lives.

Seeing every side, the whole complicated and profound process, I came out more pro-choice than ever. I started to see it from a purely biological standpoint. We were removing an unwanted growth to preserve the woman’s chosen course.
