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 […]

Abortion is a normal thing that women do, and we should stop asking women to sit in silence when the topic comes up….

I don’t feel very brave when I talk about my abortion. I feel small and scared.

But I don’t like staying silent out of fear. I don’t think that’s how anyone has ever gone about winning civil rights. And we have a lot of work to do.

So let’s talk about our abortions. Everyone who is able to, everyone who is ready–let’s speak out. Let’s treat them the way we’d treat, say, a root canal.

Our health care system walls reproductive care off into its own domain: treating birth control differently than other prescriptions, insisting that women obtain abortion care at special clinics rather than undergoing this simple outpatient surgery at the gynecologist’s office.

Let’s push back by treating it like it’s just another extremely common medical procedure.

And whether or not we disclose our abortions, whether or not we’ve even had them, let’s talk as though having an abortion is a perfectly okay option to consider when you’re very unhappy about being pregnant. Let’s act like women have a choice.

Let’s tell our friends that there is nothing wrong with ending an unwanted, life-disrupting, economically catastrophic pregnancy, and let’s listen to what they say and support them in whatever decisions they make….

Let’s get to the point where telling abortion stories at a party is just as common as telling birth stories. As long as we stay silent, it’s a right that can be taken away from us.
