Country singer Gretchen Peters worried about pro-life legislation

Gretchen Petersby Carder

What scares me about what is happening in the mid-terms in Tennessee is that the amendment that’s on the ballot would actually not provide for abortion in the case of rape or the potential death of the mother. That is extreme….

I got some really quite ugly hate mail, but to me country music has been about adults and real life and the problems they face and I have a responsibility to stand up for the issues I believe in.

Pro-life blog buzz 10-14-14

  • American Life League’s Judie Brown contrasts the indifference toward the slaughter of 3,000 humans daily by abortion in America to the outcry over the euthanasia of an Ebola patient’s dog in Spain. Brown is a dog lover, but even she was shocked at the huge response to save the life of one animal:

    Here is the first sentence of a news report that came to my attention recently: “With more than 3,400 people dead in west Africa and 7,500 infected in the latest Ebola outbreak, 300,000 people sign a petition demanding action… to save an infected dog.” This was twice as many people as those who signed a petition demanding a cure be found for the deadly virus….

    As it turns out, the dog was “put down” Wednesday by Madrid’s regional government. But the fact of the matter is that the plight of this one pet generated more interest and involvement than a single preborn child threatened and then killed by the act of abortion.

    There is something dramatically wrong with this picture.

Pro-life daily vid: Planned Parenthood “noble and just,” says heckler

PPPteardropsm

by Hans Johnson

A poll done for Students for Life of America showed that 59% of 18-24-olds didn’t know that Planned Parenthood performed abortions. And since 79% of their facilities are within five miles of a college campus, the pro-life group decided to launch the Planned Parenthood Project to inform this young targeted group. Besides photo displays, the group uses 915 small pink crosses to represent the number of babies killed each day in PP’s facilities.

In three of a series of four YouTube videos shot at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, an exchange with one pro-choice supporter went from rote argument to entertainingly bizarre. Calling PP “a noble and just organization” as he paced back and forth, he went on to exclaim: “Abort it all you want! I don’t care!” and “Abort away, as far as I’m concerned!” But you have to wonder how much careful thought he has put into this when he invokes the Norse god of mischief (here, in this additional video), declaring, “I am Loki!”  One wishes his “brother” Thor would give him a serious talking-to.

Be sure to turn on closed-captioning.

Jennifer Lawrence and the objectification of women

jennifer-lawrenceby Kelli

By insinuating that women ought to “pay up” and provide naked photos of themselves to whatever man they’re in a relationship with at the moment, [actress Jennifer] Lawrence objectifies women. She degrades them as little more than sex objects, designed to satisfy the appetites of men.

Abortion 101: New online abortion course offered by UCSF

Univ of Califby Carder

Each week’s lectures will incorporate the stories of women who seek abortion in order to better portray abortion significance and rationale.

Other topics will include a brief history of abortion, the clinical aspects of medication and procedural abortions in and after the first trimester, an overview of patient-centered abortion-care, the basics of abortion counseling, the professional obligations of health care practitioners to ensure that women have access to safe abortion care, and the maze of restrictions that make safe abortion care inaccessible to many women.

In addition to video lectures, there will be weekly quizzes, peer assessments, and optional additional content and reading for learners who want to explore the topic further.

Sunday Word: “He will give everything you need for living a truly good life”

Good-Life

For as you know him better, he will give you, through his great power, everything you need for living a truly good life: he even shares his own glory and his own goodness with us!

And by that same mighty power he has given us all the other rich and wonderful blessings he promised; for instance, the promise to save us from the lust and rottenness all around us, and to give us his own character.

Stanek wkend Q: What should Wendy Davis’s follow-up to her paraplegic ad be?

2014-10-11_0616

Yesterday the Wendy Davis campaign released a new ad attacking her Texas gubernatorial opponent Greg Abbott, who is a paraplegic.

The shockingly tasteless ad was immediately condemned not only by Republicans but by… everyone.

The Washington Post called the ad “one of the nastiest campaign ads you will ever see.” WashPo reporter Chris Cillizza tweeted:

What the Media says »

St. Norbert CollegeIt’s so wrong and scandalous. Especially at a Catholic campus…

Because Gloria Steinem is like Margaret Sanger. Or even worse.

She boasted about her own abortion, saying: “it felt positive.”

On another occasion, she said: “There is no organization in this country or the world that is more important than Planned Parenthood.” (NJ.com, Sept. 17, 2011)

And she also said this:

“Approximately one in three women in this country needs an abortion at some time in her life. It should be a part of reproductive rights.” (The Washington Post – Nov. 19, 2013)

So, I’d like to ask you:

How on earth can a woman like Gloria Steinem with such a public pro-abortion record be invited to give a lecture at a Catholic institute, which ought to be a cornerstone in the defense of innocent life?

~ Pro-life activist John Ritchie of TFP Student Action, sounding the alarm that St. Norbert College plans to host radical pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem, October 19
