New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: Off-topic question this week: The spike in gas prices, plus the Senate’s May 13 vote to continue blocking ANWR and offshore oil exploration, has provoked an American uprising, size and strength yet unknown. What is your opinion of domestic oil drilling? I’ll be interested to compare answers between Americans […]

How not to hold a Planned Parenthood fundraiser

On May 28, Denver pro-abort millionaires Joris and Regina Brinkerhoff planned an extravagent $275-a-plate fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains at their $5 million home at 1681 E. Cedar Ave., with its beautiful backyard view of the Denver Country Club. I’m told the night was gorgeous – as was the location – for […]

No Frances Bean?

When I think of dead stars Heath Ledger and Kurt Cobain, I think how comforted their families must be to have a piece of them left here on earth in their daughters, conceived in imperfect circumstances. And a convenient abortion was recommended for at least 1 of them, according to the

I’ve been rejected

On top of having frustrating site issues yesterday – my posts wouldn’t upload – I received a rejection notice from the Democrat National Committee for my request to attend its Denver convention as a credentialed blogger this August… I applied last month, making the pitch that I represented a signficant minority in the Party, but […]

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
