“You almost have to think of it as an alien.” ~ Aborting mother Carmen, 28, at the New Woman All Women Health Care abortion mill in Birmingham, AL, “for her second abortion in 3 years,” on refusing to view an ultrasound now mandated by the state prior to abortions, as quoted by The New York […]

Weekend question: Is Mississippi’s last standing abortion mill on the brink of closing?

UPDATE, 4:35p: I’ve been giving this more thought, and if for whatever reason this abortion mill needs an infusion of cash, this means either it isn’t making enough money to set aside an allotment for improvements, or it is mishandling its money. And an additional question, what exactly would it mean to the abortion industry […]

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.
