Does Carhart have a friend on the inside?

a470b078-5ece-4f99-8bca-4830b5722440On February 7, 29-yr-old Jennifer Morbelli, pictured right, died at a Maryland hospital the morning after LeRoy Carhart completed the abortion of her 33-wk-old baby in the Germantown, Maryland, mill at which he worked.

Ironically, the day before Morbelli died the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene issued licenses to all 17 abortion clinics in the state without ever having inspected them, even though abortion clinic regulations had been enacted in November 2012.

Would Feinstein oppose abortion if they used guns to kill babies?

Stephen Colbert creates partial-birth abortion drinking game

For quite some time elements of the Left have been mocking that which they think the Right holds sacred, from burning the American flag to sticking a crucifix of Jesus in urine. Lately the The Crass Ones have landed on abortion, laughing about aborted fetus cookies and abortion Christmas ornaments while tweeting  #abortionclinicplaylistsongs. Worse, they […]

CLOSED: Infamous Los Angeles late-term abortion clinic

The website now reverts to a listing of Los Angeles area abortion mills. (I only got the above screenshot via the wayback machine.) The 800 number has been disconnected, and the local number rings to a message stating, “Our office is closed. We no longer accept patients.”

NPR affiliate: Banning partial-birth abortion a waste of time

[P]artial-birth abortion has been illegal under federal law for years. Congress passed a ban 8 years ago that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2007. There have been no legal partial birth abortions in Michigan or anywhere else since that time. So … why are the legislators wasting time doing this, in a […]

ARTL crashes NRLC’s party

Last year members of CO Right to Life openly challenged National Right to Life’s support (among others) of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban by taking out newspaper ads and ousted as an affiliate. That led to the American Right to Life, which is now focused on establishing personhood at conception through state and federal legislative […]

What Obama supports

As we’ve been discussing the past couple days, Barack and Michelle Obama fully support partial birth abortion. In fact, they’ve gone so far as to attempt to raise money by

Michelle Obama’s partial birth abortion fundraising letter

(UPDATE, 5-21, 2:30a: Also see Obama: “Lay off my wife”.) In February 2004, Michelle Obama wrote a fundraising letter during her husband’s 2004 US Senate campaign claiming the partial birth abortion ban “is clearly unconstitutional” and “a flawed law.” I’d like to ask Michelle to explain her legal opinion about this law the Supremes went […]

Obama: “Lay off my wife”?

(UPDATE, 5-21, 2:30a: I’ve separated this post into 2, spotlighting Michelle Obama’s fear-mongering fundraising letter an ad the TN GOP is airing that repeats back Michelle’s own anti-American words. Here’s the GMA clip: Michelle can say whatever she wants unchallenged? I thought Barack and Michelle were feminists? Does Barack not think Michelle equipped to debate […]

Vogue: partial birth abortion chic

Pavone and PBA

Pro-lifers have had numerous heated exchanges on this blog and in print and radio about the Supreme Court’s Partial-Birth Abortion Ban decision, lifting the lid on familial differences of opinion on how to win the war against abortion. Accusations by pro-lifers against the ban are still quite fierce. You can catch up on the conversation […]

Partial Birth Abortion Ban and fetal pain

Pro-lifers opposing the Partial Birth Abortion Ban say it will force abortionists to commit more torturous abortions, and this may be true. Whereas the PBA Ban prohibits breech abortions of babies delivered past the navel and head-first abortions of babies delivered past the chin, some pro-lifers say abortionists will now simply deliver a baby’s legs […]

Gains from PBA ban

I said two nights ago I would post how the Partial Birth Abortion Ban helped the pro-life cause. I polls dating back to when PBA was page 2] Although a couple specific conclusions differ, long-term polls clearly show an American opinion shift on abortion. Was it due to the PBA revelations? I think so, at […]

No more partial birth abortions? There’s always disarticulation abortions.

Syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker wants to reassure those frightened about dwindling abortion options following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. (I know pro-aborts hate that term, preferring it called the Dilatation and Extraction Abortion Ban or the Intact Dilatation and Evacuation Ban. Sorry.)

Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years….

[L]iving too long… renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic….

My father illustrates the situation well. About a decade ago, just shy of his 77th birthday, he… had a heart attack, which led to a cardiac catheterization and ultimately a bypass. Since then, he has not been the same. Once the prototype of a hyperactive Emanuel, suddenly his walking, his talking, his humor got slower.

Today he can swim, read the newspaper, needle his kids on the phone, and still live with my mother in their own house. But everything seems sluggish. Although he didn’t die from the heart attack, no one would say he is living a vibrant life. When he discussed it with me, my father said, “I have slowed down tremendously. That is a fact. I no longer make rounds at the hospital or teach.” Despite this, he also said he was happy….

But parents also cast a big shadow for most children. Whether estranged, disengaged, or deeply loving, they set expectations, render judgments, impose their opinions, interfere, and are generally a looming presence for even adult children. This can be wonderful. It can be annoying. It can be destructive. But it is inescapable as long as the parent is alive. Examples abound in life and literature: Lear, the quintessential Jewish mother, the Tiger Mom. And while children can never fully escape this weight even after a parent dies, there is much less pressure to conform to parental expectations and demands after they are gone.
