When Planned Parenthood tried to bully a corporate donor… and lost

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure would have done well to look back at Planned Parenthood’s history of nasty break-ups to get a better handle on what was ahead.

Back in the pre-Internet dinosaur days 22 years ago, Planned Parenthood’s tactics may have been different, but its assault was just as grand when it learned AT&T was planning to disconnect its service.

The backdrop, from the Seattle Times, April 13, 1990:

November’s coming: 39 days

Normally at RedState we post a brief description of any videos we post. But this one… you just have to watch it.

I agree.

Weekend question 4/17-18/10

abortion changes you post nyt.jpgUDPATE, 4/19, 6:30a: Still no recap of Saturday’s protest from Sunsara. Me thinks it was a bust.
UPDATE, 4/18, 7:20a: At 12:45a this morning Sunsara blogged about a debate she participated in Friday night at the University of Chicago entitled, “”A Communist, a scientist, and a priest sat down to discuss… morality to change the world,” Sunsara being the Communist. Her previous post was dated April 13. No mention of her planned pro-abort NYC subway protest yesterday. So I’m guessing no one showed up. Just made a request at RH Reality Check for an update.
4/17, 6:13a: The “Abortion changes you” ad campaign in the NYC subway system continues to make waves….

Pro-abort supports National Safe Haven Day: “Show your concern over real babies”

Pro-abort Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg ran into a problem yesterday.
neil steinberg.jpgSteinberg wanted to promote National Safe Haven Day, today, which “raise[s] awareness of… local Safe Haven laws, with the intention of saving the lives of mothers and babies,” according to its website.
Safe haven laws allow mothers to abandon their newborn babies (in IL up to 30 days old), no questions asked, at specified safe havens like fire stations and hospitals.
Why Steinberg supports safe haven laws…

Stop Stupak Rally a bust

stop stupak logo.jpgAs I reported yesterday, pro-aborts had been promoting their Stop Stupak Rally for weeks, and in the end it was a bust.
In a Feminists for Choice blog post entitled, “Abortion on the line – A time for rage, not for lobbying!,” hardcore pro-abort Sunsara Taylor vented…

GOP senators get A for Abortion on Sotomayor grilling

Bravo, bravo. Click on first few words in each piece for link to entire article…
soto 1.JPG

On the abortion front, I’m struck by two dynamics at work in Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings. One: Republicans are attacking the idea of a constitutional right to abortion with a unity and forthrightness not seen in years, grilling Sotomayor on how the Constitution could be construed to contain such a right.
Two: As Republicans lift their voices on the issue, Sotomayor is evading all questions about her personal views on abortion. While recognizing that she considers Roe v. Wade to be settled law, Sotomayor has gone out of her way to obscure her personal position, disavowing signs that abortion rights supporters and opponents have taken as evidence of her pro-abortion rights views….

“Obama surfs through”

paglia.jpgPro-abort columnist Camille Paglia wrote a great piece in liberal Salon magazine yesterday, joining the growing list of Obama-supporting journalists writing morning after confessionals.
The excerpt I’m posting is lengthy but very good. Paglia’s bold, brave thoughts on Palin, who “as a pro-life wife, mother and ambitious professional represents the next big shift in feminism,” come near the end.
But Paglia is also the 1st credentialed liberal I’ve seen express serious concern about Obama’s birth certificate, questions about which I’ve been dismissing as conspiracy theory. And Paglia spotlights the very creepy side (aside from the terrorist side) of Bill Ayers’ wife Elizabeth Dohrn. Makes me want to rent the Weather Underground documentary she rented.

Obama ad slams McCain on abortion

UPDATE, 7:45p: Hear the ad.
Obama’s got a lot of nerve, but what else can he do? He’s attempting to pull himself out of defensive mode on abortion by going on the offense. From Politico, September 2:

Barack Obama has launched a broadside against John McCain’s opposition to abortion rights and moved one of the most divisive issues in modern American politics to the airwaves on a large scale for the first time in this presidential campaign.

composite both.jpg

Obama’s new radio ad, airing widely in at least 7 swing states, tells voters McCain “will make abortion illegal.” It’s airing as McCain courts female voters with the addition of the staunchly anti-abortion governor of AK, Sarah Palin, to his ticket.

Democrats had, until now, sought to appeal to women primarily on economic issues such as health care and workplace discrimination; abortion rights were hardly mentioned at the Democratic National Convention in Denver last week….
