Elton John hits back at gay adoption criticism

Dolce Gabbana Elton Johnby Carder

How dare you refer to my beautiful children as “synthetic”. And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF – a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions.

I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again.

~ Singer Elton John throwing an Instagram temper tantrum over the recent controversial remarks against gay adoptions by designers Dolce and Gabbana, via Today, March 19

Stanek weekend Q: What should a “pro-choice display” include?


University of Texas-Arlington pro-abortion students have tried shutting down the Pro-Life Mavericks’ cross display with both petitions and vandalism, but to no avail.

They’ve now decided if they can’t beat ‘em, they’ll join ‘em. From The Shorthorn, March 21:

Rand Paul challenges Hillary Clinton on accepting Saudi money


In remarks for delivery to Republican activists Friday night at the Carroll County Lincoln Day Dinner in North Conway, N.H., [Rand] Paul will say: “There has been much talk of a war on women. There is indeed a war on women – in Saudi Arabia. When Hillary Clinton claims she will support women’s rights, ask her why she accepted millions of dollars from” – and then he plans to mention specific countries.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday night that the Clinton Foundation received $7.3 million from Saudi Arabians from 1999 to 2014, based on contributions of more than $50,000. The Clinton Foundation says the money has gone to good projects that are “improving the lives of millions of people around the globe.”

Why I’m protesting Speaker Boehner’s office on March 25

3576551_orig (1)March 22 will mark two months since the House was supposed to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act but didn’t.

All agree the word “debacle” would aptly describe the chain of events surrounding the GOP leadership’s last-minute decision to pull the 20-week abortion ban.

The first object of my wrath was one of the debacle’s ringleaders, Rep. Renee Ellmers, whose locked office I and others protested the day the glorious vote had been scheduled – January 22, the anniversary of Roe v Wade….

    Of particular interest are the social and behavioral effects of these hormones when used in younger patients whose brains are still undergoing major development and maturation….

Pro-life vid of day: Moms keep their babies… while in prison

by Kelli

The San Francisco Globe recently published an article on prison programs that allow mothers who are pregnant while incarcerated to keep their babies with them after they give birth:

If you’ve never heard of programs such as these, the notion of a baby in prison might be downright terrifying, but don’t be too quick to judge. The term ‘prison’ may conjure up images of cold, dark cells, but the babies being raised inside prison walls are growing up in very different circumstances than the actual prisoners.

The video below examines both the pros and cons of programs that allow new mothers to keep their newborns with them at low security prisons.

Painting depicts Mother Teresa “marching” with Margaret Sanger

by Carder

Mother Teresa and margaret Sanger

Mother Teresa should not be imaged marching in solidarity with Margaret Sanger and hung in a public setting. It betrays Mother Teresa [to show her] marching in solidarity with Margaret Sanger, who believed in forced sterilization and was a eugenicist…

… The office which oversees the authorization of Mother Teresa’s image respectfully but straightforwardly asked the image to be taken down because it is not representative of who Mother Teresa is.

~ Father Brian Gannon, annoyed with the painting which depicts Mother Teresa “marching” with Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, National Catholic Register, March 17

young-ups-hearingIn 2014, your AUL team learned about Peggy Young, a pregnant mother who was a driver for UPS. Though other workers received a “lighter duty” accommodation for conditions like sprained ankles, Peggy was denied an accommodation during her pregnancy.

We knew how important it was for us to get behind Peggy – and the women she represents, to ensure that pregnant women are protected from discrimination in the workplace.

You see, if businesses are allowed to penalize – or even fire mothers for being pregnant, the risk of mothers choosing abortion increases.

~ Jeanneane Maxon describing their recent Supreme Court victory in Young v. United Parcel Service, Americans United for Life, March 25
