Fiorina ready to take on the Left over abortion

Womens Conferenceby Carder

I am pro-life by virtue of faith and experience and now science. And I am tired of being scared away from this topic by leftist women.

And I think they try to scare us away from this topic… it’s hard to argue that abortion for any reason at all after five months is okay when we have been conducting in utero surgery on unborn children as young as four months for a very long time.

… And so I think we need to just keep pressing this topic and not be afraid to bring it up because the left really wants to shut this conversation down.

  • Abstinence Clearinghouse points out how the Boston Globe surprisingly admits that part of the nation’s abortion decline is likely due to “an ’empathy-driven reaction’ for all of the Americans that grew up in a world of vivid ultrasound images and miraculous neonatal medicine for preemies.”
  • At Live Action News, Susan Michelle promotes the upcoming #ProlifeYouth tweetfest, to be held on Thursday, June 25th. The goal is to engage more people in the pro-life movement and to “show the world that youth are pro-life, contrary to what the media portrays.”

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 NBCNewYork.com, 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.

  • ProLife NZ announces the continuation of a downward trend in abortion that started in 2007. Good news!

  • John Smeaton says that “[o]f the 184,571 abortions performed in England and Wales last year[,] over 80% were performed on unmarried women and girls.” He quotes Paul Tully of SPUC, who suggests that marriage – the mere suggestion of which is often met with shock by women dealing with unplanned pregnancies – is often “hugely important to providing women with the security to continue their pregnancies.”
  • Secular Pro-Life posts an interview with a gay atheist who converted from pro-abortion to pro-life and now believes “[h]omosexuals are natural pro-lifers because they are still insufficiently legal persons, like the preborn” and “The very same artificial legal boundaries that define what rights I may or may not have are the very same artificial legal boundaries that objectify our youngest human beings as mere body parts that could be thrown away at will.” The interview is an interesting read.
  • At ProWomanProLife, Faye Sonier points out an essay from a self-described college-educated, pro-abortion liberal atheist who credits her mother’s conservative pro-life beliefs with her very existence. However, she seems to reject those beliefs herself.
  • At Women’s Rights without Frontiers, Reggie Littlejohn shares an article by Paul Strand on the real reason for China’s one child policy, which goes far beyond population control. The goal is absolute control of the population by use of terror. But some effects were not intended:

    … [D]emographer Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute… said the one-child policy has been so ruthlessly effective at killing hundreds of millions of unborn Chinese – especially baby girls – the country now faces a dangerous dearth of workers and women.

    “It has helped create a declining labor force for the future,” Eberstadt explained, “a rapidly aging society, a marriage squeeze for prospective brides and grooms from the gender-imbalanced generation, and a fragmentation of family.”

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

by Hans Johnson

CHkxNSkWoAIxGcj

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:
