New Stanek column on WND: “Babes in Thailand rapists needn’t leave U.S.”

So what if minor girls can’t buy emergency contraceptives without a prescription? Their rapists can. When last week the FDA authorized over-the-counter access of ECs to women 18 and older, it also authorized over-the-counter access to men 18 and older. Why would men buy ECs? Ask them in Thailand, where ECs have been marketed for […]

Stanek 8-16 column: Breaking news on Hialeah abortion clinic murder case

The person putting the live baby in a biohazard bag […]

New Stanek column on WND: “Miami – legalized back-alley abortion capital of the US”

Abortion proponents said making abortion legal would stop back-alley abortions. In reality, all legalizing abortion did was make back-alley abortions legal. I’ve previously written about characters like Krishna Rajanna, the fetus-eating abortionist in Kansas, and Rodolfo Finkelstein, the sexual pervert abortionist in Michigan. But now I’ve stumbled on a nest of abortionist snakes in Miami, […]

Will (can?) the real Democrats please stand up?

From today’s NY Times, on Pew Research Center opinion poll findings released Thursday: The real import of these splits within the parties – and the problems they pose for Democrats – becomes apparent only when one seeks out the weight of the differing groups within each party. Moderate and liberal Republicans constitute only 36 percent […]

Clock ticking… Child Custody Protection Act update

Sen. Frist called for unanimous consent once again this morning to send the Child Custody Protection Act to conference (i.e., for Senate reps to meet with House reps to work out agreeable language, since they passed similar but not identical bills). This time, supposedly pro-life Sen. Reid stood up and objected, rather than rabid pro-abort […]

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
