Long weekend question

UPDATE, 12/1, 9:35a: Running weekend question through today. Daena still home. _______________ Barbara Walters interviewed Barack and Michelle Obama for ABC’s November 26 20/20. During the interview Michelle said: The truth is, you know, and Barack knows this about me, I, I love kids… There’s a disconnect here, not only on Michelle’s part, who has […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m leaving in 30 minutes to pick daughter Daena up from O’Hare, who is flying in from DC. This year will be the first year all 3 kids, wives, and 4 grandsons will celebrate Thanksgiving at our home. My Mom and Dad will also be here. It is going to be a happy […]

Backlash on “Obama supporters are idiots” poll

Announcing Survivor Sunday

Announcing a joint project by Survivors: Survivor Sunday. I’m VERY happy about this. Ever since the election, I’ve been convicted to call on pastors and priests around the country to acknowledge the January 22nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade by preaching on the sanctity of life. I just haven’t had the time to organize an […]

Breaking news: Planned Parenthood offers Christmas gift certificates

And just when you thought you could no longer be shocked. Well, sit down. Planned Parenthood of IN is selling Christmas gift certificates. And yes, they can be used toward abortion. Can’t respond any better than Matt did at WISH-TV…

New Stanek WND column, “Pro-life counterfeits: A case of mistaken identity”

I probably don’t need to say much more than the Washington Post and USA Today wrote glowingly of a new “pro-life” plan. Red flags arise. Last week USA Today editorialized: Realism seems to have struck some ardent foes of abortion. After 35 years of trying to outlaw the procedure nationally while chipping away at abortion […]

The tidal wave of death

I haven’t written on Barack Obama’s cabinet appointments because frankly I found it too depressing. This is like watching a Culture of Death tsunami. Nothing we can do to stop it….

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.
