New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: Wiki defines a community organizer as one who rallies people living in close proximity to act in their common self-interest. Do you agree with Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen that, like Barack Obama, Jesus was a community organizer? My previous poll question asked whether John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin […]

Weekend question

On September 17, ABC Good Morning America’s Diane Sawyer picked up with Cindy McCain where

Deceptions in Obama’s attack ad against Gianna ad

Here they are again, first the ad

Breaking news: Obama attacks Gianna Jessen ad

UPDATE, 1:50p: Gianna forwarded me a great commentary by BornAliveTruth.org. Second lie: “votes taken out of context”? A vote cannot be taken out of context. It’s a vote. Notice this is Obama’s excuse for every indictment against him. Third lie: “Obama has always supported medical care to protect infants.” FALSE. Remember this, from Obama’s 2002 […]

2nd day in a row: NYT on BornAliveTruth.org

Yesterday the BornAliveTruth.org for the 2nd day in a row, this time on its blog: Battles over abortion rights can often seem Orwellian, but never more so than in the competition for the Catholic vote in this presidential election…. The traditional movement seeking to end abortion rights is not standing down either. A group called

CNN gets info from liberal blogs

In the article below, CNN posted a still graphic from the Discriminations blogger wrote: Either because of sloppiness or bias, CNN neglected to mention that Stanek is the former nurse [who testified] before Congress [which] …. passed, with virtually no dissent (it passed the Senate 98-0), even from committed pro-choice legislators, the Born Alive Infant […]

Drudge on BornAliveTruth.org

My goodness, the news cycle runs fast. I heard just a couple hours ago that BornAliveTruth.org, and by the time I got to it, it was already moved to page 2. But, hey, I’ll take it. Click to enlarge:

Gianna Jessen on Hannity and Colmes

Last night Gianna Jessen was interviewed on Hannity and Colmes and did a FABULOUS job. Alan’s arguments were pathetic.

Gianna Jessen’s bonafides

UPDATE, 4:40p: Based on evidence presented in this post, Tapper has posted an addendum stating, “UPDATE: Jessen has posted medical records on her Web site to support her story,” with a link to this website. Kudos to both for their willingness to reanalyze their stories when presented with new information. _______________ Today ABC’s Jake Tapper […]

10299863_643046945782168_2130286851_nThe narratives most often used to spread reproductive justice awareness always center the discussion on “Women’s Rights.” But since I’m not a woman, I’ve felt very disconnected from the spaces I work in….

I was twenty when I had a medicinal abortion, and I have been on some form of birth control since that time. Even though the ability to reproduce hasn’t always been a factor with the partners I have had, I like knowing that I have a back-up plan and hormonal regularity….

Even the intake forms at my local Planned Parenthood are incredibly trans-exclusive! When I went to Planned Parenthood to get birth control I wasn’t given the option to state my preferred name or personal pronouns….

You might love your new hashtag or slogan, and it might be pretty catchy, but take a moment to remember that the “War on Women” really only means one type of person: cis-women.

“A Woman’s Right to Choose,” “Women’s Health,” and “Women’s Access” are all phrases that erase me and others like me.

Using “women” as a catch-all term for “people with active uteruses” is incredibly problematic….

Remember basic diversity training…. Not everyone who gives birth identifies as a woman…

Don’t assume that because someone is feminine that they are a woman regardless of their assigned reproductive system….

If you aren’t catching my obvious personal feelings, I’ll make clear that I’m a femme nonbinary person who deals with this all the time. Make my life a little easier. C’mon.

JLS note: My hope is commenters won’t mock Jack. My goal in posting this is to shed light to pro-lifers on another element of confusion and lostness on the other side. What would you say to Jack if having coffee together?
