Stanek Sunday funnies 9-30-12

Here are my top five favorite political cartoons this week, beginning with a twofer by Glenn McCoy at Townhall.com

Stanek Sunday quote: “Though your sins are bright red, they will become as white as snow”

“Come on now, let’s discuss this!” says the Lord. “Though your sins are bright red,    they will become as white as snow. Though they are dark red,    they will become as white as wool. If you are willing and obedient,    you will eat the best from the land. But if you refuse and rebel,    you […]

Stanek weekend question: What would your e-card about Obama say?

9/30, 8a: Here’s a good submission by reader David N.:

9/29, 7:13a: Per The Weekly Standard, September 28:

The Obama campaign has created a series of electronic greeting card aimed at women voters. “President Obama summed up the Republican Party’s approach to women’s health when he said ‘they want to take us back to the policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century,'” the Obama campaign website reads. “Send an eCard to say you won’t go back.”

Perhaps the oddest card in the series, though, is this one:

which my daughter was good enough to send to me…

State Senator Barack Obama, consensus builder on infanticide?

An Associated Press article from late 2007… stated that his legislative career was “focused more on building consensus to improve the justice system and aid the poor” than fighting opponents on hot-button issues….

“That strikes me, from what I know of Barack Obama’s time in the state senate, as just being pure mythology and pure public relations invention,” [Eric] Kohn [former Cook County GOP Communications Director] told TheDC….

Komen betrayed from within, Part II: The coincidences

Yesterday I described all the players who doomed Susan G. Komen for the Cure from within to lose  against Planned Parenthood’s assault when it tried to defund the abortion giant.

Today I will list “coincidences” from Karen Handel’s book, Planned Bullyhood, and also from my interview with her, that give evidence of the Trojan Horse.

New York City’s Class I carcinogenic mayor

Guest post by Joel Brind, Ph.D.

We could all go along happily with his anti-smoking crusade. After all, everybody knows cigarette smoking – and maybe even second-hand smoke – causes cancer.

Then there was the elimination of trans-fat. Well, okay, there’s some evidence that’s bad for you, and no one could taste the difference if a food has any in it or not.

Then we started getting a bit more troubled: We don’t get to choose how much salt content or the volume of a soft drink we can buy? But we still managed to chuckle a bit at the new restrictions on bottle-feeding infants in hospitals. At least we all know it is better for babies to be breast fed. So we could still be amused at our “Nanny Bloomberg,” for we could be sure of at least one thing: All those things he has mandated are beneficial to human health.

But now our nanny mayor wants to give our school children – orally and by injection, without parental knowledge or consent – cancer-causing steroid drugs.

Pro-life blog buzz 9-28-12

by Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN and Kelli

We welcome your suggestions for additions to our Top Blogs (see tab on right side of home page)! Email Susie@jillstanek.com.

  • ProLifeBlogs has a Wisconsin Right to Life post on the Obama campaign’s dishonest phone calls to Catholic voters in an attempt to get them to believe Obama doesn’t support abortion and that Planned Parenthood is really about “children get[ting] health care and prenatal care.” After promoting abortion ad nauseum to the American public via the Democratic National Convention, this is incredible. But could it be an indicator that abortion isn’t as winning an issue as they expected?

Pro-life video of the day: Choices for 2012 – with Abby Johnson

by LauraLoo Crucial choices are upon us for 2012. Also, what’s with Obama and his hypocrisy?  He tells us he’s pro-choice, pro-Roe v. Wade, but not pro-abortion – while continuing to be an staunch advocate of Planned Parenthood: Email dailyvid@jillstanek.com with your video suggestions. [HT: Jill]

Award-winning filmmaker revisits back alley abortions with screening tour

There’s a whole generation of young women and men who have no idea what the back-alley days were like, what the dangers and casualties were, and how important it is for it to be safe and legal today… We decided to go back to the back alley and tell our stories, because most people have […]

Pro-life news brief 9-27-12

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • Kristin Neuhaus, a former abortionist and rubber-stamper for abortionist George Tiller owes $93,000 to the state board for her various attempts to keep her medical license.
  • Speaking of Tiller and Neuhaus, the leader of a pro-abortion organization in Kansas with ties to Tiller has purchased his former clinic and aims to make it an abortion clinic again:

    Burkhart declined to discuss the details of the sale, but property tax records available online list the appraised value of the property as $734,100. Burkhart said she can’t say yet exactly when the new clinic will open or how many doctors will work there….

    In a recent advertisement circulated by email to abortion-rights supporters, Trust Women said it was looking for medical staff experienced in first and early-second trimester abortions and planned to open its clinic between mid-November and January 2013.

Ryan identifies as Catholic and previously described himself as pro-life. He has supported several pieces of anti-abortion legislation during his time in Congress — including restrictions on minors seeking abortions, a ban on embryonic stem cell research, and a ban on so-called “partial birth” abortions.

But, according to his new op-ed, Ryan has since “come to believe that we must trust women and families — not politicians — to make the best decision for their lives.”

The congressman says he has listened to women across the country talk about their personal experiences with abortion. Some told him they became pregnant from abusive relationships or from sexual assaults. Others said they couldn’t afford to have another child.

Ryan heard from women who developed serious health issues during their pregnancies, and from underage girls are were afraid their parents would kick them out for getting pregnant.

“These women gave me a better understanding of how complex and difficult certain situations can become. And while there are people of good conscience on both sides of this argument, one thing has become abundantly clear to me: the heavy hand of government must not make this decision for women and families,” Ryan writes. “No federal or state law banning abortion can honestly and fairly take into account the various circumstances that make each decision unique.”…

Ryan’s change of heart may signal a potential path forward for reproductive rights supporters eager to shift the political landscape around abortion, which has remained largely unchanged for the past several decades.
