New Stanek WND column: “Abortion and the end of the world”

The U.S. did not legalize abortion in a vacuum in 1973. The Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s research division, states abortion laws worldwide were undone “rapidly” between 1950 and 1985. Guttmacher estimates 46 million babies are aborted worldwide each year. This means almost 1 billion babies have been aborted worldwide just during the past 20 years. […]

New Stanek WND column, “GOP + Gays = Anti-Life”

I wrote in my previous column that revelations during the final weeks of the autumn 2006 election season shifted my thinking on why national Republican Party leaders have been reticent to advance the life issue. It may be too easy to dismiss them as cowards. It may well be they are compromised. The revelations were […]

New Stanek WND column: “11/7: Day of disaster for pro-lifers?”

The election news could not have appeared grimmer in the immediate aftermath. South Dakota’s abortion ban went down. Parental notification lost in California and Oregon. Missourians approved the embryonic stem cell initiative. Kansans condoned child rape and illegal late-term abortions by ousting Attorney General Phill Kline. Add to that the loss of the GOP Senate […]

Abortion quotes of the week

How quickly she forgets From oral arguments during the Partial Birth Abortion Ban hearing, November 8: Justice Ginsberg: “But up until now, all regulation on access to abortion has been state regulation and this measure is saying to the states, like it or not, the Federal Government is going to ban a particular practice and […]

New Stanek WND column: “Legitimizing partial-birth abortion”

On November 6, the Chicago Tribune nicely advanced the abortion industry’s talking points regarding the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. Those talking points, which I was in court to hear Wednesday, were that Congress “absolutely betrayed” a 2000 Supreme Court ruling against Nebraska’s partial-birth abortion ban by basically resubmitting the same ban in 2003 that the […]

Aftermath of GOP loss of Senate majority

I received this note from an Albert Bryson on election day: Sorry, Jill. Santorum has to go. I will vote for Casey. Santorum backing of Spector in 2004 primary is a betrayal to us pro-life voters. I can not vote for him period. I know it may harm the pro-life cause. Principle is more important […]

PBA ban hearing: outside the Supreme Court today

The rumor about John Paul Stevens

From Human Events, November 4: For weeks, commentators have speculated that significant numbers of conservatives, alienated by over-spending, the Iraq War, and other perceived GOP disappointments, will stay home on Election Day, giving one or both Houses of Congress to Democrats. But for those who care about reforming the Supreme Court, sitting this one out […]

Embryonic stem cells = hair follicles

The Michael J. Fox/embryonic stem cell-cloning flak has apparently renewed interest in a column I wrote two years ago entitled, “Michael J. Fox is a cannibal.” One person even advised I remove it post haste before Fox sued me for defamation. It’s a little late for that. On page two is a fun exchange I […]

New Stanek WND column, “Product of rape Jesse Jackson on SD abortion ban”

Rev. Jesse Louis Jackson was born Jesse Louis Burns on Oct. 8, 1941, to 16-year-old and unmarried Helen Burns. Helen had herself been born to teenage and unmarried Matilda Burns. Helen became pregnant with Jesse by next-door neighbor Noah Robinson, a prosperous married man in his 30s with other children. According to laws on the […]

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.
