Anti-abstinence bigotry

Hello from DC again. I had just returned home from a weeklong business/pleasure trip when I got a call 2 days ago to replace a cancelled speaker at a pro-life event, and here I am again, happily. Get to visit my daughter Daena as well as connect with pro-life policy friends. So I’ll be blogging […]

“We reject abortion because we are left-wing”

Well, here is an interesting view, an op ed written by the SAIn Political Party (Internationalist Self-Management and Solidarity) in Spain, as quoted from

Pills or dinner?

“Pills or dinner?” was the subject heading of Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards’ email alert yesterday. The premise is ridiculous: that due to rising prices of artificial female steroids, i.e., birth control pills, college nyphomaniacs are being forced to choose between illicit sex and eating. Here’s what happened. Legislators passed the Deficit Reduction Act of […]

South Dakota abortion ban redux

I commend SD pro-lifers for their diligence. In 2006 they introduced a referendum outlawing all abortions except to save a mother’s life. It lost 56-44%. Exit polls showed it would have won had it included exceptions. (As an aside, it was during this time Oglala Sioux president Cecelia Fire Thunder infamously threatened to open a […]

by Jivin J Peter Augustine Lawler reviews Robert George and Christopher Tollefsen’s Embryo in the City Journal. Indian Prime Minister calls his nation’s practice of sex-selection abortions “a national shame”: No nation, no society, no community can hold its head high and claim to be part of the civilised world if it condones the practice […]

Pro-life presence at NAACP dinner

All eyes were on keynote speaker Rev. Jeremiah Wright last night at the NAACP Detroit chapter’s 53rd annual Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner. But pro-lifers gave the whopping crowd of 10,000 entering the event something else to focus on: abortion and black genocide….

Father hides daughter in cellar dungeon 24 years; fathers 7 children

This is a horrifying story from Austria. It is not directly tied to the pro-life issue but is so shocking I must blog on it. Reported the MonstersandCritics.com]

Robert Downey, Jr., and other converts to conservatism

Robert Downey, Jr., in an April 20 Iron Man, said: I have a really interesting political point of view, and it’s not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here, but you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal.

That-Was-Easy-Buttonby Kelli

… [E]ven supposedly “pro-choice” forces buy into the idea that shame is attached to sexual women. Abortion… is described as being a “difficult decision,” one that women struggle with if they are faced with an unwanted pregnancy. That is simply not true for most women. It’s not a difficult decision. If you don’t believe in abortion, it’s not a difficult decision because you’re not going to do it.

If you think abortion is not wrong, it’s not a tough decision because it’s the only way to make sure you don’t have to go through an unwanted pregnancy and childbirth. Calling it “difficult” – or suggesting that women feel bad or guilty or conflicted about it afterward – merely gives ammunition to those who think women need to be counseled before considering abortion, as though they’re all a bunch of emotional, unstable creatures who couldn’t possibly understand what they are doing.

Women know exactly what they are doing when they have abortions. Agree with it or not, but don’t assume the only reason she’s having one is because she’s too confused or distraught to make a rational decision.

~ Boston University political journalism professor Susan Milligan, who apparently feels qualified to speak for women who abort (while dismissing the idea of post-abortion regret), US News & World Report, August 20
