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 […]

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
