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,” […]

Gone 4/16 – 4/23

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 […]

On WYLL today

I’ll be on Scott Thomas’ show today on WYLL-AM from 3p-4p CST to discuss pro-life issues. The show can be heard via the Internet. On the docket: The South Dakota abortion ban and Oglala Sioux president Cecilia Fire Thunder’s threat to open a mill on her rez; Blagojevich’s “Where’s Waldo” embryonic stem cell funding attempts.

… [W]hen Christians take offense at the suggestion that deeply held religious beliefs must change so that women can access abortion, they may be failing to appreciate the tenuous nature of their pro-life hegemony. Not only is [Hillary] Clinton’s suggestion not absurd, recent history tells us it’s completely plausible….

Ten years ago, the same-sex marriage debate was a non-starter issue among Christians. Today we have Christians openly supporting gay marriage, and some even arguing homosexuality isn’t a sin. Again, this is significant, and this didn’t happen in a vacuum. As the culture continues to move to the Left, certain numbers of evangelicals will adapt and move Left with it. All that has to happen to syphon off Christians to the pro-abortion cause is more of the same — open hostility for any Christian espousing the stance that life begins at conception and aborting that life is murder….

Hillary Clinton’s suggestion to the Women in the World audience has caused a strong counter-reaction among evangelicals, and there is incredible value in this. It helps reinforce what the deeply religious, pro-life movement believes, and it unites them against a common cause.

My hope is that profoundly religious people will recognize what candidate Clinton’s suggestion portends. My fear is that the profoundly religious will acquiesce, because they have done so before.
