Free Speech = Free Destruction? … Not…

The AP is reporting that the professor and six students who defaced pro-life crosses at Northern Kentucky University earlier this month have been charged with “criminal mischief, theft by unlawful taking and criminal solicitation.” The pro-abortion professor, Dr. Sally Jacobsen, has also been put on leave. She was caught red-handed (pardon the pun) by a […]

New WND column: “Coming to America: forensic vagina inspections?”

My WND column today focuses on a recent article in the New York Times, which attempted to connect the U.S. trend toward criminalizing various aspects of abortion to a Salvadorian ban on all abortions that includes prosecuting aborting mothers. The reason for the NYTimes piece was clear: to frighten U.S. women that “forensic vagina inspectors,” […]

A sacred choice?

The most recent Lakota Times included details from a press conference Oglala Sioux president Cecilia Fire Thunder held re: her plans to build an abortion mill on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The name of her mill will be Sacred Choices Clinic. The Times also included an opinion piece from the writer who started it all, […]

Eric Zorn and forensic vagina inspections

The Chicago Tribune’s Eric Zorn has challenged me to a blog duel regarding his piece, “Women in prison – a ‘partial-birth’ abortion issue for the left?” Eric is excited to have found a wedge issue that might outdo the pro-life movement’s foremost wedge issue, partial birth abortion, which he admits is “grisly” and “repulse[s] even […]

Sioux 2: More on leader planning tribal genocide

In my previous column I wrote about Oglala Sioux president Cecilia Fire Thunder, who has threatened to open an abortion clinic on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation if the new state abortion ban is enacted. It turns out Fire Thunder is a former abortion clinic worker, something she omitted from her resume until two weeks […]

women-dont-regret-abortion

Notice that both abortion stories share this same, perverse theme: abortion is a way to “save” my child. Also notice that both women were using birth control and still wound up pregnant. I mention that as an aside, but it’s worth considering in its own right….

The first woman admits that she ended her child’s life — because she couldn’t give her child “everything,” because she couldn’t give her child “a wonderful life,” and because she didn’t want to follow the lead of her own “bad parents.” The second woman maintains that she saved her child by paying to have him or her killed — after determining that is what God wanted her to do. Both women maintain that they are guilt-free, though the first woman says she is heartbroken and the second says she cries because she wishes her child was still with her.

The term “self-fulfilling prophecy” comes to mind. For fear that they will be bad parents, these women killed their children — which is the ultimate expression of bad parenting. Everything else pales by comparison….

I do not fear the impact that “positive” abortion stories will have. Even the positive stories are laced with tragedy, and the more abortion is talked about in the public square, the more apparent it will become that abortion is one of vilest perversions of justice the world has ever known.
