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

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 […]

By repeating only the gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, terrifying abortion stories, we protect a lie: that abortion isn’t normal. We have learned to think of abortion with shame and fear. We have accepted the damaging idea that a person who wants an abortion must grovel before the consciences of others….

We have to stop categorizing abortions as justified or unjustified.

The best thing you can do if you support reproductive rights is to force people to realize that abortion is common, and the most common abortion is a five-to-15-minute procedure elected early in the first trimester by someone who doesn’t want to be pregnant or have a child.

It’s our job to say it’s O.K. if that’s the end of the story. It’s O.K. if it’s boring or not traumatic or if you don’t even know what it was.

The reasons, the feelings, the personal contexts — these we can also talk about, but only after we grant to each woman the right to make and do with her body what she will. Regardless of whether or not a compelling story is on offer.
