  • First Things' Keith Pavlischek writes about common ground, the Obama administration and reducing the number of abortions:

    The problem, of course, is that anyone who has been paying attention knows full well that Obama and his crew are not interested in reducing the number of abortions. How do we know this? We know it because Obama and crew keep telling us that they are not interested in reducing the number of abortions. Sooner or later you would think these moderate and progressive Evangelicals would get the message.
  • Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian tells People that she's pregnant and considered getting an abortion before choosing life...

    "I looked online, and I was sitting on the bed hysterically crying, reading these stories of people who felt so guilty from having an abortion," she recalls. "I was reading these things of how many people are traumatized by it afterwards."

    After scouring the Internet, Kardashian says she started to realize that an abortion wasn't an option for her. "I was just sitting there crying, thinking, 'I can't do that,' " she says. "And I felt in my body, this is meant to be. God does things for a reason, and I just felt like it was the right thing that was happening in my life."

  • Oklahoma will fight to keep their pro-life laws including their ultrasound law:

    Judge Robertson did not rule on whether the law, which rolled together five separate anti-abortion measures, violated constitutional protections of privacy and freedom of speech.

    Charlie Price, a spokesman for Attorney General W.A. Drew Edmondson, said Wednesday that an appeal would be filed with the State Supreme Court. The state will argue that the law does not violate the single-subject rule, because all its parts are germane to abortion, Mr.
    Price said.

  • Comments:

    Wait, moderate and progressive evangelists are supposed to know that Barry doesn't want to reduce the number of abortions just because he says so?

    No, that's not how it works.. they insist that Barry has hidden "good agendas" that he just hasn't revealed yet..... and they know because they're all mind readers.

    I can see that I'm going to have jaw problems before O is out of office, from my mouth dropping open so often. Just as you think he's been quoted saying the most RIDICULOUS thing you've ever heard(especially from a President), he comes out with something even MORE ridiculous. He should change his last name from Obama to Barack 'Oh...come ON!' :)
