New Stanek column on WND: “Stained-glass ceiling”

Those who don’t know me may be surprised to learn I believe the Bible frees women to serve in church leadership just as men, provided they are gifted by the Holy Spirit and willing. Those who know me know this is a passion of mine second only to my passion to stop abortion. In fact, […]

Consequences of Santorum loss

I posted all comments received via email regarding my column, “Quit De Wining about the Santorum Spectercle,” on my blog post yesterday. Most were negative, and most swirled around the same general themes. My boiled down response is this: I agree Rick Santorum and the GOP will learn a lesson if Santorum loses, particularly over […]

New Stanek column on WND: “Quit De Wining about the Santorum Spectercle”

A few weeks ago, I sent an e-mail to my list, encouraging Pennsylvania pro-lifers to support Republican Rick Santorum in his rebid for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Bob Casey.

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
