New poll/Old poll

I have a new poll question up: How recently have you contacted an elected official about a pro-life or pro-abortion issue? Here are the results of last week’s poll, almost evenly divided….

Weekend question

President Obama has just reversed policy in place since 1991 banning photographs of caskets of American soldiers killed in war. My immediate response was anger. But is the rationale for this any different than that of pro-lifers wanting photos of aborted babies shown? Wrote the

O’Reilly compares Obama’s infanticide vote to anti-chimp vote

Last night Bill O’Reilly interviewed UT Congressman Rob Bishop, who opposes legislation to make it illegal to sell or transport a pet chimp across state lines. O’Reilly compared opposition of this bill to Barack Obama’s infamous opposition to another bill back in the day… “The law doesn’t solve the problem,” Bishop stated. “The intelligent thing […]

The Fight “Fight FOCA” campaign targets Catholic Church

Ok, after reading Time magazine article calling the Freedom of Choice Act a “mythical abortion bill,” here are the pro-abort talking points to counter the mounting surge against FOCA: Pro-lifers are on hallucinogenics. FOCA isn’t happening. Pro-life groups are using FOCA to raise money. Conservative Catholics are at the bottom of the Fight FOCA frenzy. […]

Jivin J’s Life Links 2-27-09

by The Swamp (Chicago Tribune’s Washington bureau), Obama will get rid of the Bush administration’s conscience rule sometime today: Taking another step into the abortion debate, the Obama administration today will move to rescind a controversial rule that allows healthcare workers to deny abortion counseling or other family planning services if doing so would violate […]

Pro-lifers dissed by both Dem and GOP House leadership

I’ve written several times (here) on a letter circulated by pro-life Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Heath Shuler (D-NC) for signatures, which they submitted to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week….

Pro-aborts to protest pregnancy care centers

UPDATE, 2/27, 6:40a: Many pro-choicers have complained in the comments section about my characterization of pro-contraception, pro-abortion young women as being easy marks. I have to say it was comedian Chris Rock who was my inspiration. I watched the following video a couple years ago, and it made total sense. In fact, if you can […]

Sebelius’ HHS nomination to be aborted for her fringe abortion views?

The White House has made it no secret pro-abortion KS Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is in the running for HHS Secretary. Sebelius is closely linked to Wichita late-term abortionist George Tiller, trying to clog any prosecutorial wheels of justice against him and even hosting a secret soirée in his honor at the mansion. Sebelius has committed […]

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
