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.

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
