Pro-life vid of the day: The hidden every-day atrocities

by Hans Johnson

Once again the nation has been rocked by an unspeakable human atrocity. A young man too cowardly to face off with the criminals he was supposedly angry with, instead murdered nine innocent churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, last week.

Recently students from the Immaculate Heart of Mary School (in association with Saint John the Baptist – Prolife League) in Falls River, Massachusetts, made a video drawing a parallel between the Boston Marathon bombing and the hidden atrocities performed behind the doors of a Planned Parenthood. They also noted that sidewalk counselors are in a way like the noble first responders who come to the aid of the more public victims.

Taylor Swift helps fans announce pregnancy

Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 8.02.48 AMby Kelli

Most everyone we told before we posted on social media found out by us showing them our Taylor Swift picture. It was fun because the reactions were all pretty similar. First “Wow that’s so cool you got to meet her” or “She is really beautiful and tall” then “Wait… what’s that sign say?!”

~ Expectant father Jesse Rasmussen, describing how he and wife Lindsey shared their pregnancy news with the help of Taylor Swift, as quoted by, June 19

Pro-life vid of the day: My dear dad

by Kelli

It doesn’t need to be Father’s Day to celebrate the impact of a wonderful and involved father. This video from the Jerome Lejeune Foundation was too sweet not to share. LifeNews writes of the organization:

… [T]he mission of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation USA is to provide care, advocacy, and research for people with genetic intellectual disabilities, like Down Syndrome…. [I]n 2013 the Jerome Lejeune Foundation joined with other disabilities groups in opposing the practice of disability discrimination abortion.

Seinfeld on new fatherhood initiative: “Being there” matters

by Carder

SeinfeldIt’s such a gigantic piece of life for the man, and even more so for the child, because the lack of a father in the child’s life is a very big factor in perpetuating the poverty cycle….

Fathers always think, ‘Well I have to know a lot,’ and what they have to know is that the biggest part of it is being there.

~ Comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld (pictured with actress Gwyneth Paltrow), who “helped spearhead the Baby Buggy Fatherhood Initiative to provide resources to new fathers and to encourage their continued participation in their children’s lives,” People, June 21

  • Wesley J. Smith says the French are trying to bring euthanasia in gradually, by first offering to sedate terminally ill patients until death. Smith discusses the difference between palliative and terminal sedation, and explains why terminal sedation is not so humane:

    That’s killing by slow motion because it involves putting a patient into a coma and depriving them of food and fluids so they dehydrate to death. Pushing terminal sedation is egregious for another reason: It confuses people as to whether the legitimate pain controlling technique – palliative sedation – is killing by another name.

Pro-life video of the day: The virtues of being a dad

by Hans Johnson


This Sunday is Father’s Day, when we reflect with gratitude on the men in our lives who have helped to hand off our children to the next, hopefully better generation. Senator Tom Cotton (R) returned from military service to run for office and serve Arkansas. But his most important service is in raising his newborn son Gabriel (photo, right, from a recent townhall meeting).

The highs, lows, and downright comical aspects of fatherhood (see videos here and here) are the subject of the new bestseller The Dadly Virtues: Adventures From the Worst Job You’ll Ever Love. This collection of essays was discussed by editor Jonathan Last and some of the contributors – all engaging conservative and libertarian writers – on this AEI panel:

Mouse dung once part of an ancient abortion suppository

dv1637066by Carder

The famous Greek doctor Hippocrates, or texts attributed to him, recorded a lot of abortifacients — and, interestingly, his books also reveal that the Greeks had figured out the connection between copper and contraception that we still use today in copper IUDs. But one recipe stands out: It calls for mouse dung, honey, Egyptian salt, wild colocynth, and resin to be made into a suppository and put into the uterus.

Septic abortion strikes again: the possibility for infection just skyrockets.

~ JR Thorpe describing one of “nine terrible ancient methods of abortion,” as reported by Bustle via The Huffington Post, June 18

(Not so) pro-life vid: Minister suggests preborn lives don’t matter

by Kelli

Self-proclaimed Christian minister Nikki Brooks decided to take on the pro-life response to the “Black Lives Matter” movement, explaining why she has “never shed a tear” over anyone’s aborted preborn child – other than three of her own children whom she mentions. Somehow at the end, her conversation seems to suggest that instead of crying for preborn children who have lost their lives, we should shed tears for children like hers whose parents are working to pay for them to attend expensive college classes:

Limbaugh: Republicans aren’t the ones pushing abortion issue

orwellian-ideasby Kelli

The problem that I have with this is it’s not the Republicans that are pushing social issues. The Republicans are defending them, for crying out loud! The left is who’s pushing social issues, and nobody ever complains about ‘em doing so. The Democrat Party is the biggest purveyor of social issues. The Democrat Party is the biggest promoter of social issues. The Democrat Party’s agenda demands movement on social issues! This idea that the Republicans are pushing social issues is absurd.

Pro-life vid of the day: Motherhood – both real and enchanting

by Hans Johnson


Artist Rebecca Roher was already curious about her friend’s pregnancy, so when Guts, a Canadian online feminist magazine, asked her to do a comic strip on that very subject, she interviewed her through back and forth emails. The result was Mom Body, a frank detailing of her friend’s recent experience having a baby. [WARNING: It ends with one totally unnecessary profanity.]

The rest of the special edition in which the strip appears show’s an amusing “arm’s length” anthropological look at pregnancy and motherhood, but the strip itself has several undeniable truisms:
