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.

… [W]hen Christians take offense at the suggestion that deeply held religious beliefs must change so that women can access abortion, they may be failing to appreciate the tenuous nature of their pro-life hegemony. Not only is [Hillary] Clinton’s suggestion not absurd, recent history tells us it’s completely plausible….

Ten years ago, the same-sex marriage debate was a non-starter issue among Christians. Today we have Christians openly supporting gay marriage, and some even arguing homosexuality isn’t a sin. Again, this is significant, and this didn’t happen in a vacuum. As the culture continues to move to the Left, certain numbers of evangelicals will adapt and move Left with it. All that has to happen to syphon off Christians to the pro-abortion cause is more of the same — open hostility for any Christian espousing the stance that life begins at conception and aborting that life is murder….

Hillary Clinton’s suggestion to the Women in the World audience has caused a strong counter-reaction among evangelicals, and there is incredible value in this. It helps reinforce what the deeply religious, pro-life movement believes, and it unites them against a common cause.

My hope is that profoundly religious people will recognize what candidate Clinton’s suggestion portends. My fear is that the profoundly religious will acquiesce, because they have done so before.
