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.

Stanek weekend question: Which pro-choice stars do you boycott, if any?

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:

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
