  • The New York Times has an article on Bart Stupak's efforts to get abortion out of health care reform:
  • After months of pushing the issue, Mr. Stupak said in an interview, Mr. Obama finally called him 10 days ago. "He said: 'Look, try to get this thing worked out among the Democrats. We want you to work it out within the party,'" Mr. Stupak said, adding that Mr. Obama did not say whether he supported the segregated-money provision or a more sweeping restriction. "We got his attention, which we never had before."...

    After the president called, Mr. Stupak said, Ms. Pelosi agreed to meet with Mr. Stupak on Tuesday to discuss his proposals for the first time, her office confirmed. Her spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, said in a statement, "As we have throughout the process, we are meeting with our members to listen to their concerns, consulting with the administration, and making progress."

  • A man from TN named Tarence Nelson has been arrested and will face 2 counts of 1st degree murder after allegedly shooting and killing his 8-months pregnant girlfriend and their unborn child. Apparently, Nelson wanted Tonya Johnson to have an abortion:

    Witnesses told detectives that Nelson was the father of Johnson's child, and that he wanted her to have an abortion, but she refused.

    Ingram says Nelson's intent to kill the child was obvious by her wounds.

    "It looked like he was intent on killing both of them," he said.

    Detectives agree. Nelson will be charged with double murder.

    "I think it should be a double homicide, the baby was ready to come," Ingram said.

  • Over the weekend, abortionist George Tiller was posthumously honored by the International Federation of Planned Parenthood Foundation.
  • McGill University's campus paper has a doozy of an editorial entitled, "Choose Choice," where author Sarah Woolf attempts to argue that having a pro-life group on campus is oppressive to young women. Apparently, the goal and mandate of pro-life groups is to oppress young women (a group Woolf claims is a "minority group") and "telling a woman what to do with her body is oppressive."

    Other oppressive groups who tell women what to do with their bodies but were not mentioned by Woolf: groups who want to stop drunk driving, groups who are opposed to people smoking in public places, groups opposed to drug use, anti-suicide groups, groups opposed to self-mutilation, and groups working to help women with eating disorders.

  • I think these pro-choicers in South America win for silliest outfits ever at an abortion rally.

    Blast you, Sarah Woolf! You caught us! And we would have gotten away for it, too- if it weren't you you and that dog of an argument!

    Sarah Wolf is on to us, Janet and Phillymiss. We have to be more careful from now on. For the time being, back to the mothership to plot our aerial takeover of women's rights. Muhaha! We're evil! Muhaha!

    Yeah, Vannah, and don't forget the secret handshake and the blood oath of secrecy!!

    If someone like Sarah Wolf can catch on to you, you must not be very "covert".
