Jivin J’s Life Links 1-31-11

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Here’s more evidence that greater access to morning-after pills/emergency contraceptive doesn’t work the way pro-choice organizations have been telling us it will. A policy in England to hand out free morning-after pills to teenage girls at pharmacies didn’t lower the pregnancy rate and increased the rate of STDs:They […]

New late-term, half-abortion scheme: Kill babies by lethal injection and nothing more

Revelations about the dangerous and dastardly practices of late-term abortionists, particularly on the East Coast (Brigham, Carhart, Gosnell), continue. Today Operation Rescue exposed yet another new way they are circumventing the system – this time only by killing babies by lethal injection and nothing more. This will force many pro-life obstetricians and hospitals into complicity […]

Quote of the Day 1-31-11

My goal is to shatter the illusion of objectivity far and wide, to affix a metaphorical consumer warning label on liberal news. Nobody should sit down to watch the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, for instance, expecting to receive “objective” information from a radical pro-abortion Upper West Side Manhattan liberal. ~Nicole Coulter, reflecting on […]

Stanek Sunday funnies 1-30-11

The Gosnell live-birth abortion mass murders, in conjunction with the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, provided an opening for several political cartoons on our topic this week. Even liberals like Signe Wilkinson at GoComics.com were incensed… by Glenn McCoy at Townhall.com…

Quote of the Day 1-30-11

A good person obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns everyone who schemes. A person cannot stand firm on a foundation of wickedness, and the roots of righteous people cannot be moved. ~ Proverbs 12:2-3, God’s Word translation

Video: The most shocking 4-minute abortion debate you will ever see

On January 7 I posted a video produced The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, which lasted only a couple hours on YouTube. CBR’s shocking, graphic video juxtaposed a soothing video produced by the Northland Family Planning Centers, a late-term abortion chain of 3 mills in Michigan, with the reality of abortion. CBR’s video got such a […]

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
