  • Wesley J. Smith notes that the Democratic Party’s abortion platform is extreme, even for the majority of Democrats:

    While solid majorities of Democrats back some limitations on abortion — 59 percent would ban partial-birth abortions, for example, and 60 percent endorse a mandatory waiting period — the official position of their party is that even common-sense restrictions are unthinkable….

    If Obamacare remains in effect, eventually Congress will revoke the abortion restrictions currently in the law. Then, we’ll see a “Free Abortion Rule,” patterned after the Free Birth Control Rule.

Pro-life video of the day: Opposing views on abortion after rape

by Hans Johnson In the wake of Todd Akin’s misstatement, lawyer Gloria Allred and Rebecca Kiessling debated the right to abortion in the case of rape on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. Allred became pregnant due to rape and consequently aborted her child. Kiessling, also an attorney, was conceived in rape and placed for adoption. Email dailyvid@jillstanek.com […]

GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan defines society’s greatest responsibility

We believe that in every life there is goodness; for every person, there is hope. Each one of us was made for a reason, bearing the image and likeness of the Lord of Life. We have responsibilities, one to another – we do not each face the world alone. And the greatest of all responsibilities, […]

Photos: Planned Parenthood’s idea of mainstream American women

At first you may now know what you’re looking at. But yes, they’re vaginas. Click to enlarge, if you dare…

Yesterday Code Pink activists were featured at the Planned Parenthood bus stop in Tampa, dressed in full frontal feminist regalia. These vulgar women represent mainstream American women?

Created Equal has more photos on its Facebook page. I’ve got one more on page two, too gross for page one.

Akin regains lead as social conservatives stand by him

If Todd Akin pulls this off, it will be more than he who is vindicated. It was also be the pro-life community.

After supposedly suffering a nine point drop following his infamous rape remark, to fall behind Claire McKaskill 49-44%, could it be that Akin has already recovered? Yes, according to a new poll commissioned by Family Research Council.

If Akin regains his foothold, it will put knee-jerk Republicans in a deservedly tough spot. Two days ago RNC Chairman Reince Priebus insanely declared, “He can be tied, we’re not gonna send him a penny.” Priebus, pictured right, has said he believes life begins at conception, although he must also believe babies whose fathers are rapists can nevertheless be murdered.

Seriously, are Republicans so afraid of feminists, and so afraid of defending the pro-life issue, that they’ll throw themselves under the same bus they threw Akin?

Reported Politico, yesterday:

Huckabee: The only evangelical on the ticket supports infanticide

I want to clear the air about something that has been said. People wonder whether guys like me, an evangelical, would only support a fellow evangelical? Well my friends I want to tell you something, of the four people on the two tickets, the only self-professed evangelical is Barack Obama. And he supports changing the […]

Pro-family groups unite to register 5 million conservative voters

I hope by now you’ve seen the ad on the right side of my home page linking to the Commit to Vote website.

This is really exciting. Explains CitizenLink.com:

Six organizations are working together to make a difference in the November election — and they’re doing it by reaching out to their own constituents, in the largest collaborative effort in the history of the pro-family movement.

Pro-life video of the day: Dennis Miller mocks Jay Leno’s “war on women” meme

Comedian and political pundit Dennis Miller appeared on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno this week, schooling Jay in some of the basic ideals of conservatism. Leno’s wife, Mavis, is a staunch abortion proponent, serving as the chair for the Feminist Majority Foundation’s Campaign for Afghan Women and Girls, an effort which includes pushing for […]

Santorum gets Standing O for pro-life line in RNCC speech

Without explicitly mentioning abortion, the former Republican presidential candidate propelled the crowd to its feet by championing the GOP as the one party that lifts up all children – “born and unborn.” “I thank God that America still has one party that reaches out their hands in love to lift up all of God’s children […]

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

~ Tara Culp-Ressler, ThinkProgress.org, April 14

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
