Caroline Kennedy, you know?

Caroline Kennedy’s run for NY senator has surprised me on a few counts. 1. I’m surprised Caroline decided to run in the first place. This would seem to go against her lifelong very private grain. In this regard, for all of her 51 years, she has behaved like her mother, not her father. Her sudden […]

Poem, “over population”

I received this population poem yesterday via email: the world is overpopulated sometimes people make mistakes sometimes people die to make the total population healthier sometimes when a woman decides that the man she chose was a wrong choice giving that person a child would be a travesty of life sometimes those people are children […]

“Recovering Evangelical”: Life is about more than abortion

Long weekend question

Merry Christmas!

Several years ago I wrote Townhall.com discusses the same topic from a different angle with additional excellent observations… A Christmas view of abortion “The Bible says nothing directly about abortion.” Have you ever heard this claim before? I know I have. And the uncomfortable truth is that, in a certain sense, it’s accurate. The deliberate […]

Christmas lights

Yesterday we had a winter storm, today it’s raining on the snow. It’s Chicago. Need I say more? I’ve been up awhile, cooking in the kitchen. Gotta go back to work, and then we’re going to my Mom’s house later this afternoon. Tomorrow my sons and families will join Rich, Daena (who flew in Friday […]

Priest says no to U.S. bishops’ postcard FOCA fight

Most of us have spiritual hot buttons. One of mine is guarding against usurping pastoral authority. I’ve been through a couple of church splits in my life and am critical of bad apples complaining publicly about pastors/leaders and stirring ill will. For that reason alone, never mind thwarting a pro-life endeavor, I just can’t fathom […]

The failure of this very modest amendment says a lot about the state of abortion politics in Britain.

The Left-wing establishment could not let it pass because it cannot tolerate the concept of any limit on access to abortion whatsoever. It proclaims that it wants abortion to be safe, legal and rare. But it regards abortion as a fundamental human right if not a positive assertion of a woman’s freedom to control her own destiny – and any attempt to constrict a human freedom is, obviously, a betrayal of that freedom in principle. In trumpeting the right of abortion over any wider concerns about, say, its effects upon society, gender relations or (Heaven forbid) the welfare of the unborn child itself, the establishment Left has made its position as plain and bold as possible.

Abortion in all circumstances and for whatever reason is a-okay.

It is often suggested that pro-lifers are religious fanatics who won’t give an inch, while pro-choicers are moderate humanists. The situation is far more contrary than such clichés suggest….

The Left-wing establishment does not approach abortion with the sober minds of liberal pragmatists balancing one set of rights against another, but as fundamentalists who can accept no opposing view. The abortion industry has become their Moloch, and they will give it whatever it demands.
