New Stanek WND column: “People magazine: Don’t stop, get a shot”

An article in the Feb. 5 issue of People magazine demonstrated the persistence of liberals to march us all down the path of free love to our deaths. I don’t understand why young people would trust the ideology of those who sought their demise before they were born, but here’s one: 33-year-old abortion survivor (which […]

Abortion clinic director: “I am pro-life”

Calling herself the “pro-life executive director” of the Emma Goldman Clinic abortion mill in Iowa City, Iowa, Karen Kubby took the occasion of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade to reflect in a Jan. 25 opinion piece in the Iowa City Press-Citizen. Highlights: I am pro-life. I believe strongly in the value of living beings […]

US News & Incorrect World Report

The Jan. 29-Feb. 5 issue of U. S. News & World Report included this in an article by Lewis Lord, “A conqueror more lethal than the sword” : Experts believe that in 1492 perhaps 10 million people lived above the Rio Grande – twice as many as may have inhabited the British Isles at that […]

People Magazine: Don’t stop, get a shot

The Feb. 5 issue of People magazine included a story about actress Marissa Jaret Winokur who, according to the teaser, “learned the cause of her cervical cancer and now makes sure other women know how to prevent it.” The sole cause of cervical cancer is human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease. Winokur contracted cervical […]

“I wish my sister were a convicted murderer”

Bobby Schindler has a compellng post on ProLifeBlogs that juxtaposes media responses to the 34-minute execution of convicted killer Angel Diaz in Florida to the 14-day execution of his sister, Terri Schiavo. Here is one, along with the photo from the post: The Ledger (Associated Press), 12-17-06 Article title: “Doctors: Botched execution likely slow, painful” […]

Why the State of IL will lose if it fights the Choose Life license plate decision

Eric Zorn and I have continued the conversation on Choose Life license plates on his blog, which led to an important point. Zorn said: The argument against your proposed plate — again an argument I do not buy — is not that it’s one too many plates, but that it contains too much self expression […]

Choose honesty

Ah, history, it’s so fun to revise! As quoted by Eric Zorn in his Chicago Tribune column today, Rep. Jack Franks would have us believe that his epiphany to single-handedly halt approval of specialty plates in Illinois came coincidentally when the Choose Life license plate bill was introduced in 2002. Then Franks should explain why […]

New Stanek WND column, “The AP’s fetus frenzy”

You would have a difficult time figuring out Barack Obama supports infanticide by the Jan. 17 Associated Press story entitled, “Obama record may be gold mine for critics.” Each of five times the AP referred to Obama’s votes as state senator against legislation to stop infanticide, it softened the blow to make it unintelligible to […]

Parental notification coincidences

The IL Supreme Court issued parental notification rules last September 20, instructing AG Lisa Madigan to tell a federal judge to lift the injunction on the 1995 law.  I had a feeling Madigan was stalling to give Rep. John Fritchey’s repeal bill time to work through the system. So four months later – coincidentally – […]

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.
