Pro-choice Halloween costumes

Warning: Graphic and disturbing photos ahead. Halloween affords yet another opportunity to point out how differently pro-lifers and pro-choicers think. Pro-life thoughts on this day range from designing cute pro-life pumpkins, to changing our Facebook profiles to remind Americans of the “true horror” in our midst. Pro-abortion thoughts range from tacky, to gross, to sick, […]

Stanek Sunday quote: “What have you done? Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.” ~ Gen 4:10

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to […]

Stanek weekend question: Would you watch a live-streamed home birth?

Mashable reported on September 30: A chiropractor in Ottawa gave an unusual invitation to the World Wide Web this week. “Hi, I’m Dr. Nancy Salgueiro with YourBirthCoach.com,” [pictured right, with her family] she said in a YouTube video, “and I’d like to invite you into my home to watch my live birth online.”

Meet Rick Santorum’s precious daughter Bella, “the center of our universe”

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s daughter Bella was born with Trisomy 18. Trisomy is similar to Down syndrome in that the former has three of the 18th chromosome and the latter has three of the 21st chromosome. Many children with Trisomy 18 die within hours or days after birth. Many children with Trisomy 18 are aborted. […]

“There are no side effects”: HPV’s ill-advised new poster child, Alexa Ray Joel

I had it. But I mean, a lot of people get it from my ex…. I mean it was fine, you know. There are no side effects. You just go and get it taken care of…. It’s something like, I think the statistics were something like 98% of people will have it. ~ Singer/songwriter Alexa […]

Why they’re really, really scared about the Mississippi Personhood Amendment

A potentially game-changing date for the pro-life and pro-abortion movements is quickly upon us, only 10 days away. (Make sure to read the money line at the end of this post.) On November 8 Mississippi voters will decide the fate of Initiative 26, aka the Personhood Amendment, which states: The term “person” or “persons” shall […]

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
