Fighting liars with fires

Perhaps inspired by the determination of Operation Rescue leaders against late-term abortionist George Tiller in Wichita, or perhaps enraged by the audacity of Aurora’s Planned Parenthood, it seems to me pro-lifers are just not taking it any more. Three evidences….

Daena

Some of you have been following our daughter Daena’s fledgling career move to DC earlier this summer. She just called and is in an AP photo bidding farewell to Karl Rove about an hour ago. She’s in the lower right hand corner, above the two little American flags: Read the story

New custody right: to kill

I previously blogged on this here. On August 28, AP/New York Times reports. Several hours before a woman named Augusta Roman was scheduled to undergo IVF, her husband at the time, Randy Roman, insisted that the procedure be canceled and that the embryos be frozen. The couple later began divorce proceedings. In the case, Augusta […]

What it’s like

Two weeks ago I received this email: Dear Jill, I recently reached your website and quickly became interested in the things you and your guests had to say. As a person who has had an abortion, I still remain neutral to the issue. I believe in a woman’s right to choose. I understand people have […]

Princess Diana

Ten years ago today, Princess Diana was killed in a car accident in Paris. She is another of those pop icons I studied and admired. She was a wonderful mother and humanitarian. She used her spotlight for good. She was a gorgeous fashionista. She was flawed, but we all are. At least for me, Princess […]

Her first mistake

Cut off reproduction to spite self

Today’s abortion Nazis and their selective breeding

Herald Sun, today: A botched abortion of a fetus instead of its Down syndrome twin has prompted the Vatican to compare abortion to the Nazis’ selective breeding practices….

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
