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

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
