  • Kelli Conlin, former president of NARAL New York is being investigated by her former organization to see if she abused her expense account. Conlin left the organization last month:

    The audit reportedly examined tens of thousands of dollars worth of spending on clothing, meals, car services and even a summer rental in the Hamptons, according to the blog, all charged on NARAL credit cards. In the statement, the group described the report as merely preliminary.


  • Pro-choicers got themselves into a tizzy yesterday about a South Dakota bill which they claimed would allow pro-lifers to kill abortionists. The Washington Post didn’t jump to the same silly conclusions and got the sponsor to explain the purpose of his bill:

    The bill’s main sponsor, Rep. Phil Jensen [pictured left], said the measure merely seeks to make self-defense laws consistent with other SD laws that allow murder or manslaughter charges for the death of an unborn child.

    “This has nothing to do with abortion. This is a self-defense bill,” Jensen, R-Rapid City, told The Associated Press….

    Jensen said he planned to talk with Attorney General Marty Jackley on Wednesday about the bill’s language.

    Under the bill, homicide would be justifiable if committed in the lawful defense of an unborn child or to prevent harm likely to result in the death of an unborn child. The bill was expected to be debated in the SD House on Wednesday.

  • Mike Huckabee touted his pro-life beliefs at a recent pro-life fundraiser:“For me this is an issue that – as I’ve said before – it transcends all of the political issues,” Huckabee told an anti-abortion crowd at a fundraiser the Center for Bioethical Reform. “I’ve often said I would gladly lose an election before I would ever yield on the issue of the sanctity of human life.”

  1. NARAL “Pro-Choice” New York believes it is morally wrong to misuse an expense account, but it is perfectly morally acceptable to do everything you can to promote the killing of millions of unborn human beings in New York State.

    The pro-choice groups should not be outraged about this law, it is perfectly consistent with the Unborn child Protection laws that some states have.  It’s only justified to prevent illegal acts of harm to the unborn, it doesn’t even apply to abortions.  As long as there is a law to protect the unborn from illegal harm that could kill them, this law would logically follow. I mean it’s not like you can jut walk up to someone and kill them. You have to have probable cause, it’s only justified if there were no other options.

    To those worried about this law encouraging pro-life vigilantes to kill abortionists,  I could just as easily say that Roe v. wade has led to a lot of criminal behaviour, i.e., the Philadelphia doctor, Gosnell charged with murder. Who knows how many other times this has happened or could happen.  I mean how different is it to kill a live-birth baby than an unborn one? 
         That’s the problem with abortion, it desensitizes people to how valuable life is, I mean if you have a career of constantly aborting babies, then after a while it gets easy to be indifferent about the abortion process.  I’m sure the pro-choice crowd is not going to blame abortion laws on incidents like Gosnell’s.  If they want to say this law is extreme and make vicious criticisms about the pro-life side I say go ahead but it’s naieve to think the pro-choice laws can’t lead to violence either.

    With everything you’ve done to promote the pro-life movement did you think this day would ever come. I was starting to think it was to late for our country.

    I would find Huckabee’s sentiment more credible if he had NOT voiced it.

    Whether the former governor is really willing to sacrifice his political ambitions for the sake of principle remains to be seen.

    The ‘dead babier r us’ have been using NARAL funds for ‘putting the roof’ on ethnic minority churches for years.

    Why would it be out of the ordinary for them to expend some NARAL dollars for a little R & R in the Hamptons.

    I mean how many babies can you murder before you have to take a break?

    Think of it this way he had to have a lot of courage just to make the statement and hopefully it will give others the courage to stand. And sometimes the best way to break the hold fear has on people is to state what’s the very worst thing that could happen. It’s also a very valid concern because there is a very real possbility this could cause him an election. On the other hand it could also within reason almost guarantee him an election.

    Seeing  as how he already has, it is about as credible as it gets.

  8. Hey, every dollar Kelli Conlin used in the Hamptons was a dollar that wasn’t used to promote murder.  As far as I’m concerned, that was money well spent.
