Two federal lawsuits filed against City of Aurora

The pro-life protest against Planned Parenthood Aurora was scheduled for Saturday, August 25, at 9:00a. But to ensure that constitutional freedom, Chicago’s Thomas More Law Center, this morning. Tom said they filed the lawsuit against Aurora ordinances that are clearly unconstitutional and subjectively enforced. There are two contentions….

Gag me

The headline of this August 26 CNN story triggered the first gag:

Did Planned Parenthood commit fraud against Aurora, or are officials in on it?

Backdrop…. From the Chicago Tribune, July 27, 2007: Neighbors who drive by the bustling construction site in Aurora think they are seeing the completion of the “Gemini Health Center,” just as the sign says…. But in a few weeks the sign will be changed to reflect the true owners of the building: Planned Parenthood…. “Frankly, […]

Joe Scheidler interview at Aurora PP protest

by guest poster Fran Eaton, editor of Pro-Life Action League’s founder Joe Scheidler if what the president of Illinois NOW told me was true – had he indeed been arrested 40 times, some for assault and battery? [JLS note: Besides viewing a great interview with Joe, you can get a sense by this video of […]

Weekend question

Pro-abort “Liberal misogynitis,” was “silly.” One of several points I made to demonstrate that in reality, pro-aborts, not pro-lifers, are the misogynists, was their promotion of abortion – of which way more than half aborted are female – had caused such a gender imbalance in Asian and Third World countries that a sex slave trade […]

Our worlds kiss rather than collide

Today the protest/prayer vigil of the Aurora Planned Parenthood was held. The crowd was huge, somewhere between 750-1,000! It is the largest protest of any kind I have ever attended next to the annual March for Life. I have to sort through over 150 photos to whittle down to 10-15 to post, but in the […]

(Prolifer)ations 8/24/07

On the pro-life blogs…. Vital Signs Reasoned Audacity. Ah, it’s that time again. The 2nd annual Wash for Life is September 15. Read details at HumanLifeMatters writes on the human journey, “During the last few days of [my 92-year-old mother's] life she… was unconscious. The nursing staff asked if the family still wanted meals brought […]

Planned Parenthood goes underground

It’s our fault Planned Parenthood is sneaking around, lying, and deceiving the public, so its says. More on that momentarily. But it’s interesting that we’re apparently driving PP underground. We may not be impairing its bottom line (posting on PP/USPS’s 1972 family planning stamp. I don’t think it would see the light of day today. […]

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
