Congresswoman criticized who compared “Christian militant” abortion clinic bombers to Islamic jihadists

So Sheila, these Islamofascist terrorists want America destroyed: liberals, conservatives, Christians, Jews, the young, the old, the good-looking, the ugly, the capricorns, the geminis, the golfers, the ballers, the snowboarders, the skiers, the Burger Kings and the McDonald’s, the Albertson’s and the WalMarts, the heterosexuals, the homosexuals, the bisexuals and the trisexuals, Morehouse or the […]

Stanek Sunday extra: Eucharist flash mob

From the National Catholic Register, June 24: So, technically, this doesn’t quite qualify as a flash mob, but I love it nonetheless.

Stanek weekend question: Is treatment for ectopic pregnancy an abortion? Is it moral?

I received the following email this week: Hi Jill, I am unfortunately in need of some good insight. My daughter is 30 and has wanted a baby for a long time. She finally got pregnant, but it was an ectopic pregnancy the doctors missed until she had to be rushed to the hospital. They did […]

Sign petition to FDA: If cigarette warning labels, then abortion warning labels

On June 21 the FDA announced it would begin forcing cigarette companies to post graphic warning labels on packaging beginning September 2012.

womensissuesby Kelli

Forty years later, having won most of their early battles, the current “women’s issue” crowd now maintains there’s a war on us that won’t end until we can obtain contraception and abortion without so much as a co-payment even for women who can afford an education at Georgetown, and it must be paid for even by people who have always maintained conscientious objection.

Meanwhile, many of us have refused to assimilate, though we rarely hold press conferences about it. Bearing the wounds of the sexual revolution, we think, for our daughters’ sakes, there’s still room for discussion. Abortion and contraception (free at last, or mostly) aren’t the best we have to offer our girls….

We think the abortion-contraception damsel in distress dirge is unworthy of us, and quite disingenuous coming from women perfectly able to pay.

Our “women’s issue” sisters may be admirable for their tenacity in defining the debate, but they do not define us. We take issue with their version of “women’s issues” and we can speak for ourselves.

~ Peggy Haslar, The Pueblo Chieftain, July 26
