Diplomatic crisis: Chinese pro-life dissident flees to US Embassy – What will Obama do?

It was the top story on Drudge yesterday morning and is making world headlines today.

Lunch Break: White House Correspondents’ Dinner

 by LauraLoo Political fodder ran amok during Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner attended by President Obama and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.  Even though Obamacare and contraception both took a few hits, the majority of the evening’s jokes were at the expense of politicians, journalists and celebrities.  Email LauraLoo with your Lunch Break suggestions.

Necrophilia: not exactly “safe” sex

It is something no civilized nation indulges in. In societies where such practices as eating the brains of the dead (usually enemy dead, to be sure — nothing so clammy as one’s own kinfolk) occur, diseases such as kuru and equivalents often ensue, with genetic sequellae and untoward organic consequences in the long term… Not […]

Stanek Sunday Funnies: “These children that you spit on” edition

David Bowie fans will recognize the line in my subject heading from his classic song, Changes:

And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

I thought of that line when viewing the following political cartoon by Jack Ohman at GoComics.com. Ohman is a liberal pro-choicer no less, who I’m sure doesn’t realize the tragic irony of his attempted wit…

Those children that baby boomers spit upon by promoting their abortions if inconvenient should not now be expected to give up their lifestyles for those same inconvenient baby boomers. Ohman’s cartoon signals the coming unrest.

UPDATE 4/29, 1:54p: Ashley has engaged in the conversation on Twitter, fyi…

4/28, 3:14p: Pro-abortion Hollywood star Ashley Judd was one of several lesser knowns to recently mock the demise of Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign with a spoof that made analogies to abortion…

ACOG: Women think birth control is better than it really is

There’s a good chunk of women who overestimate the effectiveness of the pill and condoms. About 45% of a group of 4,500 women looking to use these methods as a way to not have babies, put too much faith in these anti-baby having products. problem, science says, is that people conflate “ideal use” and “typical […]

Ominous Planned Parenthood fundraising appeal details recent pro-life victories

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards sent a fundraising email this morning under an ominous caption…

I guess standing with Planned Parenthood is not supposed to be fun but frightening, kind of like watching a scary murder movie…

Indeed, the letter was intended to frighten Planned Parenthood supporters that their beloved organization and cause were losing ground at great speed by listing recent pro-life accomplishments. Of course, reading this list had the opposite effect on me, as I’m sure it will you:

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.
