Abortion vanishes from silver screen

Great story in the entertainment section of the Knocked Up to Juno [scene pictured left], opening Dec. 14, abortion is The Great Unmentionable, euphemized as “we don’t perform, uh, — ” (Waitress), and “nipped it in the bud” (Juno) in comedies in which pregnancy is the situation. Abortion is likewise obliquely referenced, if actually considered, […]

Smoothie operator

This guy faces life in prison for slipping his girlfriend RU-486 in a smoothie and causing her to abort (not “miscarry”) twice, when if she had wanted to take the pill to abort she would have been federally protected. He also gave her the drug, which is not to be prescribed after 49 days, at […]

New protocol for pregnant moms with breast cancer: don’t abort

Iowa Right to Life: neutral on pro-life prez pick

I was on Iowa Right to Life to encourage it to reject National Right to Life’s endorsement of Fred Thompson and instead endorse Huckabee. I found that tidbit interesting and called IRTL this afternoon to find out if it was making the switch. I spoke with Kim Lehman, IRTL president. She said after they started […]

Tribute to Henry Hyde

I was sorry to hear of Congressman Henry Hyde’s passing today. I met him a few times. He was an eloquent, ardent and invaluable defender of life. His short political bio, from

The Maker’s Diet

The jury’s out whether I’m suffering from carbohydrate withdrawal or a touch of the flu, but I think it’s the former. I started on The Maker’s Diet yesterday, and the author warned I might feel a little nauseous or headachy for a few days. So, sorry, I’ve been out of it today. The premise of […]

No spanks

AB Laura sent me a great point worth discussing, made by Glenn Beck: Massachusetts is considering a possible ban on spanking where parents wouldn’t be allowed to spank children under 18. Yup, the people’s republic of Massachusetts is ok with abortion, but don’t spank your kid, that would be just wrong. You’ve likely heard by […]

Abortion or murder? Mom decides

I’m glad for the decision, but this just goes to show what a mockery Roe v. Wade has made of U.S. murder law. From

By repeating only the gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, terrifying abortion stories, we protect a lie: that abortion isn’t normal. We have learned to think of abortion with shame and fear. We have accepted the damaging idea that a person who wants an abortion must grovel before the consciences of others….

We have to stop categorizing abortions as justified or unjustified.

The best thing you can do if you support reproductive rights is to force people to realize that abortion is common, and the most common abortion is a five-to-15-minute procedure elected early in the first trimester by someone who doesn’t want to be pregnant or have a child.

It’s our job to say it’s O.K. if that’s the end of the story. It’s O.K. if it’s boring or not traumatic or if you don’t even know what it was.

The reasons, the feelings, the personal contexts — these we can also talk about, but only after we grant to each woman the right to make and do with her body what she will. Regardless of whether or not a compelling story is on offer.
