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 […]

war-on-women

I’m a pro-choice individual who actually acknowledges that those who disagree with me are not raging, full blown misogynists. What’s my reasoning you might ask? I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I don’t buy the idea that people who are pro-life hold that position because they seek to control women’s bodies. This is a myth perpetuated by many Democrats as part of the “War on Women.” To attack the pro-life position as a “War on Women” is to completely ignore the much more widely cited reason for being pro-life, which is concern that fetus’s [sic] being aborted are in fact alive and sentient….

Here’s another reason why pro-life individuals are not inherently sexist. It’s seemingly obvious but is almost completely ignored in the abortion debate. Tens of millions of women are pro-life. According to Gallup polling, as many as 41 percent of women identify as pro-life. That’s almost half!

Did Anthony Brown and Mark Udall intend to convince voters that almost half of all American women are self-hating sexists, Hell-bent on waging war on… themselves? Regardless of their intentions, women saw through their illogical and downright dishonest allegations. Both candidates lost easily winnable races.

Women are smart. Democrats know that right? I mean come on! You’ve got some of the smartest women in the world as your rising stars…. Women see through cynical pandering.

Next time, try running on your accomplishments. It’s not like you have a dearth of other issues to talk about. Same sex marriage and the minimum wage have been trending your way for instance. However, if you use those issues, please try to refrain from calling people against same sex marriage homophobic and those against an increased the minimum wage classist. Instead, try actually having an honest debate about the policies themselves. You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Similarly, you’ll catch more votes with good policies, than with disingenuous accusations of prejudice.
