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 soirĂ©e in his honor at the mansion. Sebelius has committed […]

The thing of it is, gentlemen: You do have a story to tell. You didn’t make the final decision, but we know that in the overwhelming majority of cases, you were intimately involved in the conversations that led up to it.

You were most likely the one who drove her to the clinic, and drove her home again. And the choice not to become a father, right at that particular moment, has had a major impact on every day of your life and every major decision you’ve made ever since.

Think about it. How would your life be different today if she hadn’t chosen abortion? Would you be co-parenting with a woman you knew wasn’t right for you? Or fathering more kids than your time and resources responsibly allow?

Are there educational opportunities you would have had to skip, reducing your earnings for the rest of your life? Or career breaks that wouldn’t have happened if you’d been encumbered with a kid (or another kid)?

Your life is the way it is right now because your female partner was able to make that choice when she needed to. If that hadn’t been possible, you’d be having a very different day today….

We need you in this conversation again, for a lot of reasons.
