Sirius pro-life talk show host

Attention pro-lifers: There is now a live, three-hour, daily, national radio talk show that discusses the pro-life issue along with other topics of importance to us. The show is Across the Nation with Bob Dunning. Bob had me on last week to discuss embryonic stem cell experimentation. Bob has had me on his show, The […]

New Stanek WND column: “Is God allowing abortion to save eternal lives?”

A volunteer driving me from the airport to a pregnancy resource center speaking engagement described a heart-wrenching incident. She said during a recent luncheon with three friends, all four admitted to having abortions. One had never told anyone before that day…. I am increasingly aware of the eternal lives God is saving through abortion. I […]

New Stanek WND column: “Warren, Obama: It takes more than wings to fly”

Despite pressure from social conservatives, Pastor Rick Warren refused to uninvite U.S. Sen. Barack Obama from his AIDS conference last week, although Obama is pro-abortion and pro-homosexual. During the conference, Warren explained, “You have to have two wings to fly,” apparently a right wing and a left wing…. Warren said he invited Obama to speak […]

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.
