The […]

Actress Alyssa Milano gushes over new son

  … He’s such a great baby, he’s just making me look good! ~ Actress Alyssa Milano gushing over her newborn son, Milo Thomas Bugliari, as quoted by US Weekly, September 28   [HT: Laura Loo]

What’s wrong with this picture? Pro-life groups join pro-abortion groups to oppose the Ohio Heartbeat Bill

For the first time I can think of, pro-lifers are divided into three camps on a pro-life bill. Usually it’s just two, which is bad enough. I wrote on September 14 that both Ohio Right to Life and the Personhood people were actively opposing the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortion in Ohio from […]

New York Times laments “disappearing” abortion rights

A September 24 New York Times editorial entitled, “Where abortion rights are disappearing,” lamented the “spate” of new pro-life laws passed by state legislators “concocting new schemes” to make abortion go away. Yadda yadda. What interested me about the piece was a map and chart included by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The amount of movement […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Bills to ban partial-birth abortion in Michigan will soon be signed by Governor Snyder. The most noteworthy part of this article is that the reporter actually describes partial-birth abortion. How often does that happen?

Abortion proponent “thrilled” by an abortion on “Grey’s Anatomy”

One of many problems abortion proponents have is sending mixed messages about getting one.  Whether to act glib and risk offending normal sensibilities, or to act serious and risk humanizing the baby, that is the question. Maya at Feministing took the spectator-at-the coliseum approach earlier this week, saying she was “thrilled” and found it “refreshing” […]

Lunch Break: “Were It Not For Grace”

by LauraLoo I heard this song sung by Larnelle Harris for the first time this past LORD’s day while taking a beautiful autumn walk. Praise be to the LORD Almighty, more sovereign than all my sin!

Barry Lynn: Jesus cares more about helping the poor than about abortion

Let’s get this straight. Even though abortion is not mentioned in the Bible, it is obvious to these conservatives that not only should Christians not get one; the government should bar anyone from obtaining one. However, when the deep concern for the poor is commonly located in the same sacred text, it means absolutely nothing […]

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.

~ Alexander Burns, noting some thoughts and reactions to Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy announcement, Politico, April 17
