Lunch Break: Chris Christie on the “bystander in the Oval Office”

by LauraLoo Love Governor Chris Christie! His comment yesterday about “bystander President Obama” waiting for re-election states the obvious – that Obama’s a talker (with a TOTUS at that) and not a doer. Of interest, Obama has been voted by GQ as one of its top 25 Least Influential People Alive, snap. Email LauraLoo with your Lunch […]

Operation Sacred Soil

New organization will help block pro-choice speakers from Catholic facilities and functions You may not have noticed, but since May 17, 2009, no Catholic organization has dared invite President Barack Obama to speak. This is because none want to be a Notre Dame II, the university that paid a high price in battered PR and […]

Unwritten rule about unplanned pregnancy in the military: “A good soldier will have an abortion.”

No one ever said to my face that they were disappointed in me, but I could see it in the eyes of my commander, my first sergeant and my boss. They all congratulated me but I sensed I had let them down in some way…. The unspoken code is that a good soldier will have […]

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
