DNC claims Randall Terry is illegitimate; Gloria Allred demands equal time

Just as the cacophony of hate toward Tim Tebow’s ad garnered the pro-life issue millions of dollars in free publicity leading up to the 2010 Super Bowl, so we are seeing with Randall Terry’s ad leading up to the 2012 Super Bowl.

WashPo blogger: Informed consent before abortion “sexist” because “father of the fetus” doesn’t participate

Experts agree that there’s usually no medical reason for an ultrasound in the first trimester of a pregnancy. Rather, such a requirement is a naked psychological ploy to assault the mother with feelings of guilt and play on her emotions to stop her from going not go through [sic] the procedure. Even though abortion is […]

CBS finds missing March for Life photos

On January 25 I reported that a CBS slide show entitled, “Activists Hold Annual March For Life On Roe v. Wade Anniversary,” curiously contained no photos of pro-lifers, only seven shots of pro-aborts protesting in front of the Supreme Court building. Well, CBS apparently found its missing roll of film.

Another FACE blow: Judge denies DOJ request to muzzle pro-life activist

Abortion is a normal thing that women do, and we should stop asking women to sit in silence when the topic comes up….

I don’t feel very brave when I talk about my abortion. I feel small and scared.

But I don’t like staying silent out of fear. I don’t think that’s how anyone has ever gone about winning civil rights. And we have a lot of work to do.

So let’s talk about our abortions. Everyone who is able to, everyone who is ready–let’s speak out. Let’s treat them the way we’d treat, say, a root canal.

Our health care system walls reproductive care off into its own domain: treating birth control differently than other prescriptions, insisting that women obtain abortion care at special clinics rather than undergoing this simple outpatient surgery at the gynecologist’s office.

Let’s push back by treating it like it’s just another extremely common medical procedure.

And whether or not we disclose our abortions, whether or not we’ve even had them, let’s talk as though having an abortion is a perfectly okay option to consider when you’re very unhappy about being pregnant. Let’s act like women have a choice.

Let’s tell our friends that there is nothing wrong with ending an unwanted, life-disrupting, economically catastrophic pregnancy, and let’s listen to what they say and support them in whatever decisions they make….

Let’s get to the point where telling abortion stories at a party is just as common as telling birth stories. As long as we stay silent, it’s a right that can be taken away from us.
