JivinJ’s Life Links 10-27-08

by George Weigel and editorial entitled, “Catholic Brief for Obama.” It’s almost like endorsing Obama makes people dumber. Of course it’s not that and every election cycle people of both sides disavow previously firm beliefs and issues simply because they prefer a certain candidate. But this year with Obama it just seems to have exponentially […]

Stephen Baldwin: Obama is “cultural terrorist”

Last week actor Stephen Baldwin caused a liberal stir by calling Barack Obama a “cultural terrorist” and jokingly challenging him to a boxing match, which he was attending at the time, adding, “I’d like to knock some good sense into Barack.

New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: This week the media reported Sarah Palin’s new wardrobe cost $150,000. It didn’t report how much her 3 amigos’ suits cost. It didn’t report how much Michelle Obama’s wardrobe cost. Do you think this is but one example of the media’s sexist or ideological prejudice against Palin? Shock, we […]

Weekend question

This question was posed on Planned Parenthood’s The Alan Guttmacher Institute, published a study in November 2006 estimating, “Among women having abortions in the United States, about one-half have already had a prior abortion.” If one’s first abortion is the fault of inadequate sex education or nonavailability of contraception, whose fault is a repeat abortion, […]

Abortion is a normal thing that women do, and we should stop asking women to sit in silence when the topic comes up….

I don’t feel very brave when I talk about my abortion. I feel small and scared.

But I don’t like staying silent out of fear. I don’t think that’s how anyone has ever gone about winning civil rights. And we have a lot of work to do.

So let’s talk about our abortions. Everyone who is able to, everyone who is ready–let’s speak out. Let’s treat them the way we’d treat, say, a root canal.

Our health care system walls reproductive care off into its own domain: treating birth control differently than other prescriptions, insisting that women obtain abortion care at special clinics rather than undergoing this simple outpatient surgery at the gynecologist’s office.

Let’s push back by treating it like it’s just another extremely common medical procedure.

And whether or not we disclose our abortions, whether or not we’ve even had them, let’s talk as though having an abortion is a perfectly okay option to consider when you’re very unhappy about being pregnant. Let’s act like women have a choice.

Let’s tell our friends that there is nothing wrong with ending an unwanted, life-disrupting, economically catastrophic pregnancy, and let’s listen to what they say and support them in whatever decisions they make….

Let’s get to the point where telling abortion stories at a party is just as common as telling birth stories. As long as we stay silent, it’s a right that can be taken away from us.
