NFP vs. contraception

These newly posted short commercials in the Apple vein were shot by seminarians at the Institute for Priestly Formation in Omaha. Major hoot. (See the two other videos on page 2.)

Constitutionally protected hate speech against John Roberts

As our commenter Laura first reported yesterday, according to the Kos only last week to talk nice, are wishing for a death sentence or making other crass statements….

MSM’s spun headline on the Supreme Court

It goes without saying the engine propelling the abortion movement has been the courts, starting with Roe v. Wade. Protecting abortion was the biggest reason why the Left tried to stop President Bush’s two Supreme Court nominees. But the Gang of 14 – which I detested at the time – stymied them. Now the Left […]

New poll/old poll

I have a new poll up, asking the question, “Which is worse, abortion or dog fighting?” Of course, this is based on allegations against NFL quarterback Michael Vick that he was involved in the “sport.” Be sure to vote, and then make your comments here, not on theh poll website. Here are the results of […]

Where’s the love?

Two recent JillStanek.com blog posts have drawn the ire of liberal bloggers. Adrian Monck at Helen Thomas, particularly this section of my post: What goes around comes around, Helen. In that circle of life, you’re a little too close to a time when you’re going to be as helpless as those preborns you advocate killing… […]

Weekend question

Pearl S. Buck said, “It is natural anywhere that people like their own kind, but it is not necessarily natural that their fondness for their own kind should lead them to the subjection of whole groups of other people not like them.” Do you think this statement applies to abortion?

Protest against atrocities in China

One last photo from DC last week. On July 20 there was a large protest along Constitution Ave. against the Chinese Communist government’s atrocities against its people: torture, and harvesting of organs from living prisoners. (Strangely, the one-child policy was not protested.) That night, protesters held a candlelight vigil at the Washington Monument. You can […]

Role reversal

While my three-year-grandson, who is supposed to be potty-training, would rather “hang around”…

Helen’s kind of life

Crotchety, 86-year-old liberal journalist Helen Thomas is completely undeserving of her front row seat in the White House press room. Some elders don’t deserve respect. She recently spoke at a Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa fundraiser. Reported Lynda Waddington of Helen’s speech at New York Times reported July 17 that while the number of baby […]

IVF babies more sickly

I know we have at least one young reader who was conceived via IVF. Am curious to know personal experiences. And I agree with this article’s last statement. IVF should be regulated in the US, not only for the health of those born but to put a stop to those “leftover” embryos. From London’s

womensissuesby Kelli

Forty years later, having won most of their early battles, the current “women’s issue” crowd now maintains there’s a war on us that won’t end until we can obtain contraception and abortion without so much as a co-payment even for women who can afford an education at Georgetown, and it must be paid for even by people who have always maintained conscientious objection.

Meanwhile, many of us have refused to assimilate, though we rarely hold press conferences about it. Bearing the wounds of the sexual revolution, we think, for our daughters’ sakes, there’s still room for discussion. Abortion and contraception (free at last, or mostly) aren’t the best we have to offer our girls….

We think the abortion-contraception damsel in distress dirge is unworthy of us, and quite disingenuous coming from women perfectly able to pay.

Our “women’s issue” sisters may be admirable for their tenacity in defining the debate, but they do not define us. We take issue with their version of “women’s issues” and we can speak for ourselves.
