Pro-aborts blink? May not challenge NE’s fetal pain law?

The here.) This would be interesting, a sign of weakness, although if I were a betting woman I’d say the other side will decide it must sue. But here is the other side of the argument, per the AP: … [E]xperts say attempts by abortion-rights groups to block [the fetal pain law]… from going on […]

Quote of the Day 6-30-10

Monday was Justice John Paul Stevens’ final day on the Supreme Court – and it attracted a small group of protesters who showed up at the court to decry Stevens for his decisions on abortion. One protester, dressed as the grim reaper, wielded a megaphone into which he suggested Stevens will go to hell. Another, […]

New Stanek WND.com column, “Exposed! Kagan’s partial-birth abortion scheme”

UPDATE, 9:25a: A high up source tells me GOP senators plan to bring up today Kagan’s collusion with ACOG to rewrite its medical opinion of partial-birth abortion. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology is well-known in pro-life circles to be radically pro-abortion.

Pro-life group challenges US Senate candidate’s rape/incest exception

Well, hooyah. It’s about time we stopped letting pro-life political candidates get away with saying they have a “rape/incest exception.” That’s simply code for saying they support killing an innocent child whose father is a sexual criminal.

To be clear, some crisis pregnancy centers can be shady. They have been known to misleadingly portray themselves as full-service women’s health clinics, or to obscure religious affiliations. They may offer discredited info on things like “the link between abortion and depression,” or engage in what some describe as bullying or pressuring women into carrying pregnancies to term.

But the state really shouldn’t be in the business of deciding what completely non-criminal information a private operation may make available. And many businesses and non-profits have owners with religious beliefs that they don’t necessarily broadcast. In other words, you may condemn these pregnancy centers’ tactics or views, but they’re not de facto doing anything illegal. What’s more, they may doing some good: Despite not offering contraception or abortion advice, the centers do offer things like free pregnancy tests, screenings for sexually transmitted infections, ultrasounds, and baby clothes.

If particular centers are engaging in deceptive or fraudulent practices, then by all means, go after them for that. But the point should be making them be honest about what they are, not trying to turn them into something they’re not.
