Stanek Sunday funnies 7-31-11

Here are my top five political cartoon picks for the week… By TobyToons at RedState.com [HT: Carder]… Like Toby was saying, by liberal Tony Auth at GoComics.com…

Stanek Sunday quote: “Though I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I once was; a slave to sin and Satan”

Because our weekend question focuses on post-abortive mothers, I thought this quote from the book, The God Who is There: Finding Your Place in God’s Story, by D. A. Carson, would be helpful… We still await the final transformation that lies ahead of us. But we look back and see that we are not what […]

New Stanek poll: Do you think abortion is a state issue or federal issue?

I have a new poll question up: Texas Gov. and GOP pro-life presidential candidate Rick Perry said this week he thought the 10th Amendment mandated that the legality of abortion be decided at the state level. Do you agree, or do you think it should be decided in the federal courts and/or with a constitutional […]

Stanek weekend question: Are aborting mothers victims?

Former Planned Parenthood clinic manager and post-abortive mother Abby Johnson wrote at LifeNews.com this week: Some of you may think the abortionists hold more guilt than the mother. I would disagree. I do not believe women are “victims” to abortion. I have had two abortions. I was not a victim. I was a perpetrator. My […]

Planned Parenthood holds fundraiser at gay nightclub

LOL, isn’t this the wrong neighborhood to be protesting in?

Lunch Break: An eagle named Freedom

by LauraLoo Jeff Guidry tells his story of rehabilitating an eagle named Freedom back to health—and how that amazing eagle later inspired the author to triumph over cancer.

Busy week!

It has been Vacation Bible School week at my church, meaning we’ve had 4 of our 6-1/2 grandsons visiting the past several days! This should explain my absence without my having to say another word! Wow, I don’t know how I raised 3 kids of my own and got anything other than caring for them […]

war-on-women

I’m a pro-choice individual who actually acknowledges that those who disagree with me are not raging, full blown misogynists. What’s my reasoning you might ask? I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I don’t buy the idea that people who are pro-life hold that position because they seek to control women’s bodies. This is a myth perpetuated by many Democrats as part of the “War on Women.” To attack the pro-life position as a “War on Women” is to completely ignore the much more widely cited reason for being pro-life, which is concern that fetus’s [sic] being aborted are in fact alive and sentient….

Here’s another reason why pro-life individuals are not inherently sexist. It’s seemingly obvious but is almost completely ignored in the abortion debate. Tens of millions of women are pro-life. According to Gallup polling, as many as 41 percent of women identify as pro-life. That’s almost half!

Did Anthony Brown and Mark Udall intend to convince voters that almost half of all American women are self-hating sexists, Hell-bent on waging war on… themselves? Regardless of their intentions, women saw through their illogical and downright dishonest allegations. Both candidates lost easily winnable races.

Women are smart. Democrats know that right? I mean come on! You’ve got some of the smartest women in the world as your rising stars…. Women see through cynical pandering.

Next time, try running on your accomplishments. It’s not like you have a dearth of other issues to talk about. Same sex marriage and the minimum wage have been trending your way for instance. However, if you use those issues, please try to refrain from calling people against same sex marriage homophobic and those against an increased the minimum wage classist. Instead, try actually having an honest debate about the policies themselves. You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Similarly, you’ll catch more votes with good policies, than with disingenuous accusations of prejudice.
