Mom of child with Down syndrome to Disney: Feature disabled characters

Disney petitionby Carder

Disney does a great job of depicting right from wrong. It has long providing wonderful moral lessons that teach our children to be good people — but sadly, the company comes up short in one critical area. Its movies have almost no representation of disabled people, those often bullied and looked down upon by their fellow children.

What wonderful lessons of diversity, compassion, and acceptance Disney could teach our kids if they promoted disabled characters as heroes and heroines in their beloved movies!

~ Part of a petition posted by Keston Ott-dahl advocating that Walt Disney films feature heroes and heroines with disabilities, Huffington Post, October 21

Keston Ott-dahl is the mother of a child with Down syndrome.

Stanek wkend Q: Is San Antonio’s new mega-abortion center the pro-life movement’s fault?

sanantonioIn response to my October 21 post, “Pro-life activists infiltrate Planned Parenthood mega-abortion center under construction,” Abolish Human Abortion has written a “we told you so”:

We are not bragging about this or simply saying we told you so. But the fact of the matter is this, these big state of the art killing centers that Planned Parenthood is building all over the country are the unintentional (yet iniquitous) fruit of the pro-life movement.

Sarah Palin: Ironic that “war on women” mongers mocked daughter’s assault by a man

2012-02-11-gn-palin-sarah-palin-bristol-1It strikes me as bitterly ironic that the same people who tell us there is a “war on women” have no problem laughing at the recording of my daughter crying as she tells police about being assaulted by a man.

~ Sarah Palin, as quoted by Politico, October 24, on the mainstream media’s mockery of daughter Bristol’s recount to police of being attacked, transcribed here:

Pro-life blog buzz 10-23-14

pro-lifeby Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

  • At Stand True, Bryan Kemper gives an update about TLC’s censorship of the Duggar family’s pro-life t-shirts, which were created by Stand True:

    Our Stand True missionaries have been working hard all week getting ready for the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity and answering questions and comments coming in from all over the world about TLC censoring the t-shirt. In all reality what TLC did was help to make sure the pro-life message was heard far and wide.

    We asked all of you — the Stand True family — to help us send a message to TLC and you overwhelmed us with your response. We saw thousands of tweets and e-mails going out to TLC along with tens of thousands of signatures on petitions. We know that TLC heard our message loud and clear but we need to keep the pressure on as Josh asked us to do.

New Ebola Czar believes in population control

Ron Klainby Carder

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

Pro-life vid of day: Speaking life to women considering abortion

sidewalkadvocatesby Kelli

Sidewalk Advocates for Life is a new sidewalk counseling organization which meets women on the “front lines” of the abortion issue – at the abortion facilities. Their goal is to train pro-lifers to peacefully reach out to abortion-vulnerable women in their own communities throughout the year, after the 40 Days for Life campaigns have ended.

Lauren Muzyka, executive director of SAFL, writes:

We take a very woman-oriented approach to Sidewalk Advocacy, believing that one cannot save preborn children without also helping their mothers and families.

Even though we just launched April 1, we already have 42 sidewalk counseling locations – 40 in the United States, 1 in Canada and 1 in Romania. And the results in such a short period of time are even more amazing – since we started, we’ve seen 228 babies saved along with 47 “hopefuls” (those who left to “think about it”). Four abortion workers have left and business has plummeted at several locations.

Pro-life stand-off at The Alamo

622x350 (1)

On the heels of showing the reality of abortion last week on a huge, video-streaming JumboTron at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia - where the term “created equal” was penned by our Founding Fathers - pro-life group Created Equal was blocked in San Antonio yesterday from erecting the same display at the Alamo.

This was a clear violation of Created Equal’s constitutional right to free speech – content based discrimination.

At the last minute City officials claimed Created Equal’s JumboTron violated city code regarding digital signs, but the city had previously approved jumbotrons for a Floyd Mayweather boxing event (kudos to ksat for pointing that out to the city) and a Glenn Beck Tea Party rally (starts at 1:26).

Furthermore, Created Equal had followed the letter of the law and city ordinances in preparing to show images of abortion victims at the Alamo. I will detail the chain of events below, but here is video laying out the drama yesterday:

Premiere Party For TV One's "Hollywood Divas" - ArrivalsI had an unwanted pregnancy. I had just started my TV show, I knew that in black Hollywood a girl having a baby, they’d get rid of you. I had to do something about it. I had to make a decision to get rid of a child for my career…

I knew from the jump if I let any of them know what was going on, they would have cancelled my show.
