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 […]

Leaders in post-abortion recovery ministry say the church remains reluctant to fully face the impact of abortion within their own congregations.

[Post-abortion counselor Kathy] Rutledge said she once gave her testimony to a group of women at a megachurch in the South and by the end, several women were “practically bawling.” Yet, when Rutledge asked about doing a follow-up, the group’s leader said, “None of my women have had an abortion… and even if they did, they don’t need to be speaking about it.”

Nancy Kruezer, who serves as Chicago Regional Coordinator for Silent No More, said some pastors express fears that if they address abortion, it will “open the floodgates,” and they will be overwhelmed by wounded people. Others object because they say the topic is too political — or that discussing abortion might actually make it more acceptable.

But, Kruezer said these fears are unfounded and that women desperately need to talk about their abortions. As a result of her abortion 22 years ago, Kruezer said she suffered overwhelming fear, anxiety, and nightmares. These problems persisted for about 15 years until Kruezer finally confessed her abortion to her small group….

“Silence is a powerful weapon of the enemy,” Kruezer said. “It’s in silence that the truth remains hidden and that lies flourish… lies that justify the killing of unborn children, lies that say abortion doesn’t hurt people.”

… Our churches need to regularly communicate that they are safe places for women [who are post-abortive]. While we cannot whitewash the sin of abortion, we also can’t ignore those who at one time have had abortions and are suffering. We must let them know that Jesus’ blood covers all sin, including theirs.
