Pro-life dissension on PBA ban

Pro-abort hardliners aren’t all who oppose the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. Some pro-life hardliners do as well. From

Conversion stories I: prettyinpink

I’m launching a new feature called “Conversion stories.” There have been a couple on this blog in the last month – abortion proponents who came here to duel and over time converted to the pro-life position. I applaud these people for giving honest thought to pro-life apologetics, confronting their own ideology with it, and then […]

March of Dimes II

I extended my April 26 March of Dimes column, which was published today. MOD’s first 2007 WalkAmerica fundraiser is tomorow. Pro-lifers need to know that money they donate to MOD may go to support the culture of death. In addition to the information I blogged yesterday is this and more, in today’s column: MOD claims, […]

Will pro-lifers resurrect free speech McCain-Feingold killed?

Yesterday the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Wisconsin Right to Life v. Federal Elections Commission, which challenges the abysmal McCain-Feingold campaign finance law. A large coalition of groups, including the ACLU and AFL-CIO, filed briefs supporting WIRTL. The legislature passed McCain-Feingold in 2002 to kill free speech before elections. It bars corporations and labor […]

The March of Dimes marches for death

This Saturday, April 28, the March of Dimes will launch its 2007 list of risks and note one strangely missing. MOD trips over its own feigned ignorance. Its site reads: Prematurity has been escalating steadily and alarmingly over the past two decades. One out of eight babies is born prematurely in the United States…. Despite […]

The dinner party test

My favorite pro-abort, Jeff V., sent me this Independent [London] has published an amazing report indicating that Britain faces a “crisis” in the availability of abortion. It seems that “an unprecedented number of doctors are refusing to be involved in carrying out the procedure.” As the paper reports, “The exodus of doctors prepared to perform […]

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.
