Michael J. Fox hasn’t read Missouri’s Amendment Two?

From Michael J. Fox’s interview yesterday with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week: Stephanopoulos: In the ad now running in Missouri, Jim Caviezel speaks in Aramaic. It means, "You betray me with a kiss." And his position, his point, is that actually even though down in Missouri they say the initiative is against cloning, it’s […]

Jesse Jackson on embryonic stem cells

With all these famous people entering into the embryonic stem cell debate, I thought it only fitting that Jesse Jackson insert himself into the melee. Here is a quote from an essay he wrote several years ago: Anything growing is living. Therefore human life begins when the sperm and egg join and drop into the […]

MJFox: Explain what would be “criminalized”

Michael J. Fox states in his McKaskill for Missouri ad, “Senator Talent even wanted to criminalize the science that gives us a chance for hope.” MSM should ask Fox to explain what that science is, but it won’t and he won’t. For the record, it’s human cloning.

Reponse to MJ Fox misinformation ad

The following ad is planned to play tonight during the World Series, although there are last minute details still being worked out. It features Jim Caviezel of "The Passion of Christ;" Cardinals pitcher Jeff Suppan, Arizona Cardinals QB Kurt Warner, and Patricia Heaton of "Everybody Loves Raymond." And no, Caviezel is not saying, "This is […]

Obama’s fundraising letter using the “so-called” partial birth abortion ban

How liberal is Barack Obama? His wife used the ban on partial birth abortion (sucking the brains out of half-delivered babies) as a scare tactic and fundraising ploy: From: email-list@obamaforillinois.com Sent: Tuesday, February 17, 2004 7:41 AM Subject: A Message from Michelle Obama February 17, 2004 Dear Friends: We have all been concerned lately with […]

New Stanek WND column, “The power of suppression”

“God gave his people lots of babies; soon their numbers alarmed their foes.” ~ Psalm 105:24 The movers and shakers within the Democrat Party and mainstream media have conceded they can no longer muster majorities for their candidates based on party affiliation. When did they concede? When they unveiled the Mark Foley scandal. While the […]

Blobs of tissue inside and out?

The bad news is the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists will recommend that babies born alive before the gestational age of 22 weeks not be issued birth certificates, according to Britain’s Sunday Times yesterday, since doing so “causes unnecessary suffering to mothers who wanted an abortion.” The good news is RCOG’s recommendation may provoke […]

Fundraising success: abortion

Fundraising Success magazine has an intriguing photo on this month’s cover of a pretty, exuberant woman smiling at the sun. She is NARAL’s director of membership, Jennifer Donahue, with “pro-choice” tattooed or inked over the biceps muscle of her forearm. The cover photo’s caption reads, “Fearless Fundraising.” I imagined the magazine’s editorial board determining how […]

Another angle on voting pro-life

As Democrats and the mainstream press join forces to attempt to suppress the social conservative vote, consider this John O’Neill colunn in yesterday’s Human Events: “Don’t repeat mistake of 1974.”

New Stanek WND column: “What lies beneath: MO’s titanic stem cell initiative”

Consider the iceberg: Only the tip is visible. Such is the short Missouri Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative to be voted on next month. Beneath it looms a titanic constitutional amendment. Amendment Two, as it is called, is a proportional Titanic. At five pages and 2,000 words, it is half the length of the […]

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.
