Abortion advocate to pro-lifers: Ignore sex-selective abortion; fight sexism

“We have a couple coming in for a sex-selection abortion,” [my clinic director] said. “The fetus is a girl, and their culture prefers boys. I want to know if you will be able to work with them without judging or being negative. Be honest. If you can’t be their advocate, I will. I need to […]

Actually there’s no war on women, feminists are just PMSy

Calm down, ladies. You’re being hysterical. There’s no war on women! What are you talking about? Are you on your period again? May was a busy month for legislating against women’s interests at the state level. In that month alone 34 provisions were enacted in 16 states including [these]… The War on Women is a […]

Barack Obama, liberal feminism: What women don’t want

The Obama campaign and feminists must be freaking out. It turns out they bet badly that what women want are free abortions and contraceptives. What a blunder. There’s nothing left in the pro-abortion arsenal if American women don’t believe Republicans are out to take away their birth control. The other side has already admitted abortion is no longer a winning issue for them. What else do they have?

A New York Times/CBS poll in March showed Obama’s approval sinking among women, this after they launched their “Republicans are waging a war on women” strategy that was supposed to bulk up their support.

Then yesterday the NYT/CBS poll showed now Romney leading Obama among women 46-44%.

Former child actress: Attachment parenting consistent with feminism, if not liberal feminists

We care about what hormonal contraception does to your body and your brain. We research why doctors prescribe birth control to teenagers and adults who don’t have a “regular” menstrual cycle. We object to routine inductions with pitocin and interventions during labor because of the risks to the mother and the baby. We believe that […]

Photo encapsulates how sexual revolution has exploited women

Click to enlarge… Jack Yoest tweeted a link to this photo a couple days go, and it has stayed with me. Upon viewing it mamlovescoffee tweeted, “That has to be one of the saddest, loneliest images of all time.” I agree.

Necrophilia: not exactly “safe” sex

It is something no civilized nation indulges in. In societies where such practices as eating the brains of the dead (usually enemy dead, to be sure — nothing so clammy as one’s own kinfolk) occur, diseases such as kuru and equivalents often ensue, with genetic sequellae and untoward organic consequences in the long term… Not […]

Type-A post-feminists admit: We can’t control when we conceive

I’ve spent the last decade or so trying not to get pregnant. Thanks to the simple and effective methods offered by modern medicine (and the feminist movement), it hasn’t been hard. For women in my millennial-ish age group, too-early pregnancy has been the freedom-choking bogeyman that kept you from getting to do all the things […]

Being pro-choice: The “essence of misogyny”

… [I]t is not feminism to support abortion…. [T]o argue that women are unequal without the “right” to abortion is to believe that pregnancy is something that makes women less-than. But pregnancy is something that is both uniquely female and literally as natural as breathing. To believe that abortion is necessary for women’s equality is […]

Pro-choice pol: Pro-life women really “men with breasts”

I do not understand how a woman in this Legislature can say to herself: “I’m not capable of making my own health decisions… but I can get elected and make them for somebody else.”… What is wrong with these women? What are they thinking about? Are they women? Or are they men with breasts? ~ Democrat […]

A phone call from President Obama? Conservative women not holding their breath

The fact is, “slut” is one of the nicer things I’ve been called over 20 years of public life…. Self-serving opponents argue that such attacks do not represent “respectable,” “mainstream” liberal opinion about their conservative female counterparts. But it was feminist godmother Gloria Steinem who called Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a “female impersonator.” […]

The feminists who cried rape

  I wrote yesterday that Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell basically pulled a Bart Stupak. McDonnell blew an opportunity that comes along only rarely in public life, to be an honest-to-goodness hero. Like Stupak, McDonnell more than squandered it. He ended up hurting the pro-life cause by weakening sound, proven ultrasound legislation. But what about feminists? […]

Georgetown student to Sandra Fluke: “Have some self-respect”

Sandra, I hope you take to heart our school’s motto of “Cura Personalis” – care of the whole person. You are so much more than your reproductive organs. Please, have some self-respect and take responsibility for your choices instead of having to beg the government for help. The government should not be able to force […]

Ms. Magazine: “We’re losing the war on abortion,” and other unforeseen consequences of focusing on contraception

Out of necessity abortion proponents have had to shift the debate from abortion to contraception, as the Washington Post explains: For years, abortion rights advocates have battled an intensity gap: Their supporters don’t feel as strongly about protecting abortion access as antiabortion voters do about restricting it.  This has been especially true for younger voters…. […]

“Sex in the City” star to portray liberal feminist Gloria Steinem

I’m grateful that she wants to do it so much, because of the subject matter – because she understands how important sex trafficking and forced prostitution is. And Linda Marciano’s story can happen to anyone. And that’s my role, I believe, in the movie to say that. So I’m very honored that she wanted to […]

Claims of pro-life misogyny irrational

Even if one could magically rid all misogyny from the world, there would still be a basis for an anti-choice movement: the belief or the conclusion that nascent human life deserves legal protection.  This proposition needs no misogyny to originate or gain widespread assent.  And assent it has.  So unless you can show conclusively that […]

Pro-choice activist wonders where the LGBTQ support has gone

In this spirit, I’m asking where the Black LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community is on Black women and abortion? This is an important question for me. My identity is as a Black lesbian feminist who has worked with Black gay and lesbian organizations and who works on women’s rights from a reproductive justice […]

Old feminist TV anchor vs. new feminist TV anchor

When Megyn Kelly was starting out in television, a prominent TV newswoman told her, “You’re going to need to choose: you can either have a family or you can be a major anchor.” Ms. Kelly – now a Fox News anchor…  decided to ignore her. “It was terrible advice,” she said…. Ms. Kelly, 41, is […]

New documentary gives voice to adult children of sperm donors

Flipping channels several weeks ago, I stumbled on a deeply disturbing Style channel special, “Sperm donor: 74 kids and more on the way.” It told the story of 33-yr-old Ben Seisler, pictured right, whose sperm donations (why do they call them that? he made $150 per deposit) to date have spawned over 70 children – […]

Food critic compares restaurant to “shady abortion clinic”

Every now and then you have to laugh. Now this is just funny, this is, in a creepy sort of way. Mr. Ron Pierce is one politically incorrect food critic. Putting this one down as probably the first time – and likely the last time – the word “abortion” is used in a restaurant review, […]

Modern feminism: Too narrow-minded?

[S]omehow, somewhere, the feminist movement became co-opted by an extraordinarily narrow view of woman, one as narrow as the previously prevailing view that a woman’s only place was at home barefoot in the kitchen. Now it would seem, the view is that a woman’s only place is at her desk, in a pantsuit, with a […]

Brazilian abortion documentary screened at “Interpreting Abortion” Harvard event

Severina is human, she is not a feminist thesis. This allows us to have a connection with her. ~ Bioethics professor and documentary director Debora Deniz on the screening of her award-winning documentary Severina’s Story, a film about one Brazilian woman’s struggle with the Supreme Court of Brazil and her quest to abort her son […]

A feminist awakens to “real living”

We had complete freedom and were dependent on no one. Most of the women I worked with had impressive graduate degrees, in fields like computer science and electrical engineering. Yet… almost every single one of the women I worked with during this time is now a housewife who either doesn’t work or only works part […]

National Organization for Women co-sponsors DC showing of “Eggsploitation”

Well, this makes me happy. The National Organization for Women is doing the right thing here, focusing on a very real reproductive injustice – the exploitation of young women for their eggs. If you haven’t yet seen this compelling movie, here’s the trailer…

Washington Post columnist: Pro-life women leaders “are taking the word ‘choice’ away from the left”

Recent news stories about the new vitality of the antiabortion movement and its legislative achievements – more than a dozen states enacting record numbers of abortion restrictions this year – have glossed over one crucial fact. The most visible, entrepreneurial and passionate advocates for the rights of the unborn (as they would put it) are […]

Liberal feminism is in small or large part to blame for Giuliana Rancic’s breast cancer

E! News host Giuliana Rancic, married to  The Apprentice winner Bill Rancic, announced October 17 that at the age of 36 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. People reported Rancic underwent a double lumpectomy on October 18. Surgeons also removed potentially cancerous lymph nodes. Rancic will begin radiation treatment in six weeks. Thankfully her prognosis […]

Should men have the right to choose “financial abortions”?

As costs rise and opportunities disappear, shouldn’t men have the same rights as women to control their entrance into parenthood? Does that make them any less responsible than mothers who drop off their infants at hospital backdoors, no questions asked, because they realized they were not ready for motherhood? Financial abortion, in the strictest sense, […]

UK debate raises question about killing and the nature of women

In the UK, although women are allowed to perform almost every role in the services, I understand the jury is still out on whether the last taboo should be lifted: to allow them to serve in close combat units where they would have to kill the enemy face to face…. Yet it struck me that […]

The definition of “circumstantially infertile”

Like a lot of women my age, I’d thought 30 was probably an ideal age to settle down. But once I hit 30, it’s was if I hit an oil patch and the years just slipped away. The men I dated either weren’t at the same life stage as me, or simply didn’t have the […]

Pro-abortion China: Living in the “dark ages” of women’s rights

Make no mistake. China’s One Child Policy is enforced through forced abortion, forced sterilization and infanticide. Women are dragged out of their homes, strapped to tables, and forced to abort babies they want, up to the 9th month of pregnancy. Women sometimes die during these violent procedures. The One Child Policy is China’s war on […]

Pro-abortion feminists defend Bachmann

Let’s be clear. The only – I repeat, ONLY – reason liberals vilify female politicians like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann is because they are pro-life.  Were Palin and Bachmann the conservatives they are except pro-abortion, they’d be tolerated, if not embraced. Nevertheless, I was very disappointed that even liberal feminists piled on Palin in […]

Millions of conservative women leading the battle to take back America

The Lord gives instructions. The women who announce the good news are a large army. ~ Psalm 68:11   I attended Smart Girl Summit 2011 in St. Louis over the weekend and learned an interesting point to ponder. I’ve attended a few local Tea Party rallies but haven’t been intimately involved in the movement. What […]

New Fatwa: Child marriage can start in infancy

Earlier this month we saw – or rather, were once again reminded – that Islam permits pedophilia in the guise of “marriage”: Top Saudi cleric, Dr. Salih bin Fawzan (pictured), issued a fatwa asserting that there is no minimum age for girls to marry, “even if they are in the cradle,” and that the only […]

An inclusive women’s movement?

We decided that in order to take women forward, we would have to be a voice for all women – so put political party and the issue of abortion aside because those were the two issues that were dividing women in half. So, for us it was a business model: How can you have a […]

Betty Ford’s pro-abortion legacy

While I empathize with the loss Betty Ford’s family and friends must be feeling at her death, I do not lament the passing of any unrepentant leader of the pro-abortion movement, bluntly speaking. The world is a safer place for children with one less person facilitating their murders.

America needs pro-life feminism

Liberal feminism, with its addiction to abortion and its bullying of men, was never what American women and men – and certainly the American family – needed. Despite some of the best of its intentions, it was mixed up in eugenics and disloyal to the legacy of the suffragette movement, a failed experiment in remaking […]

Leno joke about Weiner includes pro-life terminology: “Unborn son”

Tonight Show host Jay Leno demonstrated June 17 that getting a laugh is much more important than political correctness to a comedian. Although Leno is married to pro-abortion feminist Mavis, he knew “male fetus” just wouldn’t get the response “unborn son” would. Watch the clip beginning at 12:28 for Leno’s quip, “Trending tomorrow, Weiner’s unborn […]

Anthony Weiner: This is what a feminist looks like?

Michelle Malkin has more on the hypocritical liberal feminists whose lips are still sealed – be it for pride, fear, neediness, protection of abortion – about misogynist, exhibitionist, predatory two-timer Anthony Weiner.

Liberal feminists blow off Weiner sex scandal

6/8, 8:10a: Wow, read this major lambast of the fantastically hypocritical Amanda Marcotte at The Other McCain, which came to my attention via this piece at The American Power blog. 6/7, 7:42p: What’s more important, abortion or equal rights for women? Though they would have you believe otherwise, liberal feminists do not consider the 2 […]

Gene Simmons: Women “should have thousands of babies and be in charge”

Women should be in charge, like the insect kingdom. You’re much brighter than we are. You should have thousands of babies and be in charge. ~Former Kiss rock band member Gene Simmons, CNBC [Warning: vulgar language; discussion begins at 2:23], May 20 [HT: Hot Air Pundit; photo via A&E]

Abort albinos

Feminists for Choice has a post up, “Albinos in Tanzania are being raped for AIDS cure”:

Abortion: “Basic equality” for women?

The common denominator is to render abortion impossible. The goal is to render women powerless…. Abortion is difficult enough without these new laws…. The Republican-controlled House is railing against the deficit and slashing social programs while refusing to raise taxes. But its microfocus is on depriving women of their basic equality – the right to […]

Minnesota representative: Men use abortion to exploit women

Pro-abort feminists like Robin Marty are already mocking MN Republican Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen for his comments earlier today on the MN House floor stating the obvious: Some men “with a perverted view of women” use abortion to sexually exploit them… Mockery is all pro-aborts have to dispute truth, which this absolutely is. How stupid it is […]

Feminists fume about euphoric properties of semen

I was originally intrigued by this story as just another confirmation of God’s good, all natural plan for human sexuality and procreation. That liberal feminists were angry about the study’s findings came as no surprise. But then I stepped back. Really? Can nothing good come from a man, literally? This debacle, which involves attempting to […]

Planned Parenthood: Let them eat cookies

About her decision to pursue a post-marital legal career, FLOTUS-hopeful Hillary Clinton infamously snipped in 1992, “I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas….” Apparently feminism has come full circle. Now we have the United States’ largest abortion chain going so far as to use cookies for promotional tools. Who’d […]

Sexual assailant Republican letch senator okay because he was pro-choice

Just read a fascinating blog post dated March 15 at Abortion.ws, once again showing how misogynist pro-aborts actually are, not to mention hypocritical. The author is Pat Richards, an old-time abortion proponent formerly with the apparently defunct (no current webpage) National Coalition of Abortion Providers. The photo I’m posting was her interesting choice. Excerpts…

Why pro-lifers oppose abortion: Sperm pride

Click to enlarge… According to liberal feminists, men are only allowed to be fathers if women want them to pay child support. Otherwise, they’re only good for supporting abortion. Hence, the most tightly wound feminist of them all, Amanda Marcotte, was so galled by the cake above that she tweeted:

WikiLeaks founder arrested for WeeWeeLeaks

Recall Al Capone wasn’t brought down for his gangster killings but for income tax evasion. And so we see Julian Assange, the anti-American Aussie,  being arrested not for committing espionage for WikiLeaking top secret American documents to the world but for scorning 2 groupies and not wearing a condom. Interestingly, liberal feminism is apparently also […]

The grief liberal feminists cruelly forbid

Over at GoodMenProject.com, blogger Lu Fong opened up a conversation about my blog post, “Aborting father confronts pro-life protesters.” Commenter Shelley responded with what I consider one of the cruelest liberal feminist myths, “[C]hoosing to have an abortion does not cause adverse mental health issues.” To which I responded, “How awful of you to deny […]

Frances Kissling in a burqa?

Frances Kissling’s pro-abortion credentials are rich. She was the founding president of the National Abortion Federation from 1977-1980 and president of Catholics for Choice from 1982-2007. Kissling is currently a Visiting Scholar at the University of PA Center for Bioethics. Bioethics? Interesting. Princeton defines this as “the branch of ethics that studies moral values in […]

The NOW whores

Bottom line? The only reason the National Organization for Women endorsed Democrat pro-abort failed political careerist Jerry Brown over Republican pro-abort wildly successful first female billionaire businesswoman Meg Whitman for governor of CA is because NOW thinks Brown’s political label will advance abortion and Whitman’s won’t. There could be no clearer example that liberal feminists […]

by CarderRon Klain

I think, I think the top leadership issue in the world today is how to deal with the continuing, growing population of the world and all the resource demands it places on the world and uh uh burgeoning populations in Africa and Asia that lack the resources to have a happy healthy life and I think we have got to find a way to make the world work for everyone…. Climate change is an issue that impacts that greatly.

~ Former Democrat operative and newly-appointed Ebola Czar Ron Klain, in a 2008 Georgetown University interview advocating population control, American Thinker, October 23
