Octomom’s an octomess: “I hate the babies.”

I hate the babies, they disgust me… My older six are animals, getting more and more out of control, because I have no time to properly discipline them. The only way I can cope is to lock myself in the bathroom and cry. Sometimes I sit there for hours and even eat my lunch sitting […]

Billboard company refuses to pull black pro-life signs

Pro-aborts defeated free speech in New York and Los Angeles, but they won’t silence the pro-life message to and by African-Americans in Oakland, California. CBS Outdoor, which also stood strong against pro-abortion ideologues in Atlanta who demanded TooManyAborted.com’s “Black Children are an Endangered Species” billboards be pulled in 2010, is again refusing to back down […]

Planned Parenthood, coyote ugly

In a post this morning I mentioned actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson have made PSAs for Planned Parenthood this year. Now Amy Poehler can be added to the list of celebrities making pro-Planned Parenthood pitches. From a PP email yesterday… The highlighted section segues to my point. I’ve been pondering how well PP would […]

Will incarcerated Illinois guvs make Choose Life license plates?

Click to enlarge… Got the above in an email today, and the glorious thought struck me that either of these guys might some day be stamping “Choose Life” license plates. Republican George Ryan (left) was a pro-life turncoat, and Democrat Rod Blagojevich (right) was as pro-death as they come. [HT: Kathy]

Lunch Break: Jo from Florida

by LauraLoo This Michael Savage video is a year old but it circulated itself to my email yesterday. How utterly SCARY that there are people like “Jo from Florida” who live in our country. Email LauraLoo with your Lunch Break suggestions. [HT: Michael Savage ]

Planned Parenthood helps pro-life movement by avoiding the A-word

Planned Parenthood is a business, a billion-dollar business. Planned Parenthood’s 1st priority is to make money, not advance the abortion ideology. It wants abortion kept legal, of course, but its marketing strategy is to avoid the A-word.  The liberal site News Hounds, June 27, reported on a recent conference call: Planned Parenthood head, Cecile Richards, […]

Breaking, Medicaid misinformation revealed: Planned Parenthood caught on tape admitting Indiana women can manage fine without it

UPDATE, 12:16p: Lila Rose will appear on The O’Reilly Factor tonight to discuss the Indiana Planned Parenthood investigation! She’ll be in the 8:25p EST segment. UPDATE, 11:22a: I’m sure she didn’t intend to, but MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow corroborated on her show last week that Planned Parenthood serves 1% (“more than 9,000″) of all Indiana Medicaid […]

Ryan identifies as Catholic and previously described himself as pro-life. He has supported several pieces of anti-abortion legislation during his time in Congress — including restrictions on minors seeking abortions, a ban on embryonic stem cell research, and a ban on so-called “partial birth” abortions.

But, according to his new op-ed, Ryan has since “come to believe that we must trust women and families — not politicians — to make the best decision for their lives.”

The congressman says he has listened to women across the country talk about their personal experiences with abortion. Some told him they became pregnant from abusive relationships or from sexual assaults. Others said they couldn’t afford to have another child.

Ryan heard from women who developed serious health issues during their pregnancies, and from underage girls are were afraid their parents would kick them out for getting pregnant.

“These women gave me a better understanding of how complex and difficult certain situations can become. And while there are people of good conscience on both sides of this argument, one thing has become abundantly clear to me: the heavy hand of government must not make this decision for women and families,” Ryan writes. “No federal or state law banning abortion can honestly and fairly take into account the various circumstances that make each decision unique.”…

Ryan’s change of heart may signal a potential path forward for reproductive rights supporters eager to shift the political landscape around abortion, which has remained largely unchanged for the past several decades.
