Jezebel blogger wishes priest had let baby with Down syndrome die

So, evidently, no one is ever allowed to offer someone who is even considering having an abortion any other options whatsoever. Because hello, that’s coercion, or something. Of course, back on planet Earth, giving someone another option, which they then agree to, is not coercion. These are the people who call themselves “pro-choice.” But when […]

“Bro-choicers” boohoo: Texas abortion bill could curb our casual sex

For those of us guys who like girls – you know, like them like them – and want to have relationships with them that may last anywhere from a few minutes to many years, we need to think about how this bill, by curtailing the bodily autonomy and sexual freedom of women, hurts us, too. […]

Feminists urged to sharpen “talons of vengeance” to stop slew of pro-life bills

shutterstock_123153736-199x300Ladies, the battle against anti-choice, anti-women, anti-cool white dudes has now reached critical mass: within mere hours of each other, both Texas and North Carolina have advanced bills to restrict state reproductive rights. Read along while you file your nails into talons of vengeance and feminism.

The Texas State Affairs Committee – the special session Governor Rick Perry called together after Senator Wendy Davis’ legendary filibuster – voted to approve HB 2, a heinous anti-abortion bill, on a party line vote. The bill is now sent to the full House for consideration next week; if approved, it will go through the same process in the Senate….

Feminist: Devaluing men has “negative effect on the world”

One of the current popular video trends on YouTube consists of men going through simulated labor. It’s an interesting concept and the men have some funny reactions. But when you read the comments underneath the videos you start to wonder if women get a little more pleasure out of them than simply for curiosity or […]

Demoralized

Berkeley, Genocide Awareness Project, Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, abortion, ObamaNothing is going the pro-aborts’ way except through political or judicial maneuvering. In other words, they are only able to keep themselves from going under by hook or by crook.

This is unsustainable. The trajectory is on the side of Life. A Time magazine cover story outlined many of the other side’s problems in January.

Students for Life National Programs Coordinator Beth O’Malley has blogged about her observations of attending the Young Feminist Leadership Conference on March 23-25 in Washington, D.C., which echo mine (examples here, here, and here):

Scientists to UN: Abortion increases violence against women

imageScientists met this week in New York to discuss recent scientific evidence regarding abortion as a form of growing violence against women and girls.

Indiscriminate practice of abortion is correlated with coercion, a history of sexual abuse, violence during pregnancy, intimate partner violence and with psychological consequences that may lead to suicide.

Sex-obsessed feminist feels out of place at Catholic university

These challenges have made me bitter. Bitter about the fact that I’m consistently denied my right to do or say anything about these issues. But bitter has made me want to speak louder, it has made me want to talk about it more, listen to people’s stories, strategize, obsess, and do something about it. And […]

“I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion”

10w-05World Life Organization and Created Equal co-rented a jumbo-tron at the January 26 Walk for Life in San Francisco. On the jumbo-tron was looped a 2-minute video showing the graphic reality of abortion.

One of the pro-life apologists behind the police-protected guardrail surrounding the jumbo-tron was Russell Hunter of Abolish Human Abortion. Russell was approached by a post-abortive mother who made a revealing declaration: “I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion when I was 18.” Here’s the video:

Muslim cleric recommends burkas for babies to avoid molestation

Babies are sex objects? If not, why would they have to cover up? And don’t think this is just in Muslim countries. I took the above photo [click to enlarge] on Madison Avenue. ~ Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs, remarking on the recent controversy of a Muslim cleric declaring a fatwa that all “female babies […]

What I have learned in the last 3 years is what to really expect when having a child with Down Syndrome. Someone once gave me a book about what to expect, I read a few chapters and threw it away. I hated it. Most books and pamphlets are so outdated the material is beyond depressing….

Some people still don’t see the beauty in a child like ours….

I have learned there is beauty in “imperfections”. I don’t believe Ollie is one bit imperfect but in the eyes of many she is. There is great beauty in all her God given pieces. Her crooked pinky fingers, the light spots in her eyes, the way she smiles…. Her tiny little heart beat that doesn’t beat quite as it should but it’s healthy – oh that heart beat is precious. The way she smiles with her whole body – I can truly see her smile from the back of her head she wears it so well!

I have learned that God’s plans are always best and in time they always make sense. I have learned that unanswered prayers are often answered – just not as you have requested. I have learned that having a sibling with Down Syndrome doesn’t limit your other children but makes them better, more compassionate, more understanding, more open hearted, more open to the world in general….

Fear is abolished, God has prevailed! Every day I thank the good Lord for that single extra chromosome that has made all the difference!
