When I watched the new documentary here) I was shocked to learn President Nixon was pro-abortion and pro-population control of blacks. The above still shot comes from that film. Then on June 23 the Nixon Presidential Library released 154 hours of secret audiotapes Nixon made during the most critical point in U.S. history re: abortion, […]

Barack Obama made history as the 1st president to appear on Jay Leno last night. Wanting to prove he is capable of speaking without a teleprompter, Obama proceeded to prove he is not. Joe Biden’s foot-in-mouth disease must be contagious. As the mom of a child who actually bowled in a special recreation program, I […]
The ignorance of blacks – even black churches – to the eugenic underpinnings of Planned Parenthood could not be any more epitomized than as described in today’s New Light Full Gospel Baptist Church, congregants’ benchmark on most topics is “the Word,” meaning the Bible. But on a recent night, more than 50 New Light adults […]
UPDATE, 10:45a: Moderator Bethany found the following Daniel Drinker, with Down syndrome, who supported Barack Obama in the primary because he was a “good talker,” was “black,” had a “good wife,” and had a “deep voice.” Sounds like reasons why many Obama supporters voted for him, but I digress. Dan didn’t know Barack Obama supports […]
I’ve previously blogged on Dick and Rick Hoyt, but at the Foundation for Life of Toledo banquet I spoke at last week organizers played a different tribute to the Hoyts I found touching to the song, “I can only imagine“….
Last night after a speaking engagement, a mom tried to describe to me the extent to which doctors pressured her to abort her now 8-year-old son with Down syndrome. She said after the diagnosis, every doctor persistently recommended she abort at every visit, even into her 32nd week. They made her feel crazy for not […]
I’ve been meaning to post this for a few days, very touching. By Rich Lowry of
I’m not sure what happened, but it’s all good. I this, that the Bombay High Court had agreed to let a couple abort their 26-week old baby with a heart blockage, repairable with a pacemaker (or “peacemaker,” according to the Indian story). The bottom line must have gotten lost in translation, because the

Dick and Rick Hoyt are a father-and-son team from MA who together compete just about continuously in marathon races. And if they’re not in a marathon they are in a triathlon – that daunting, almost superhuman, combination of 26.2 miles of running, 112 miles of bicycling, and 2.4 miles of swimming. Together they have climbed […]
