How abortion proponents view current pro-life tactics

Robin Marty-As I wrote in my post, “How abortion proponents view the current abortion landscape,” I have developed a collegial relationship with Robin Marty, pictured right, senior political reporter for RH Reality Check.

This past weekend Robin was in Chicago for a National Organization for Women convention, and we got to meet. She had asked if she could interview me for a piece she’s writing.

Through the course of our lunchtime conversation (which she paid for, thanks!) Robin enlightened me on how abortion proponents view current pro-life efforts, particularly since 2010, when pro-lifers began passing laws in unprecedented numbers. Robin agreed to let me share her thoughts. I’m not going to pick them apart, I simply find them fascinating and thought you might, too.

How abortion proponents view the current abortion landscape

crowafterroe_smallPro-abortion authors Robin Marty and Jessica Mason Pieklo have co-authored a fascinating new book, Crow After Roe.

Marty is senior political reporter for RH Reality Check, and Pieklo is a senior legal analyst there. Over the past year or so I’ve developed a collegial relationship with Robin. Even as we both stand our ground, it’s refreshing to discuss and debate sans animus.

Robin was kind enough to give me a copy of her book, which I have been reading with interest. Even though Robin writes from a biased perspective, which she freely acknowledges, she writes intelligently, another refreshing difference from the typical pro-abortion fare I usually read.

Stanek weekend question: What are frustrating ways pro-lifers shut down dialogue?

Last weekend we focused on abortion proponents. This week we analyze ourselves. This weekend’s question comes again from good friend Josh Brahm, Director of Education and Public Relations, Right to Life of Central California: What are the most frustrating or annoying things that pro-life people do that shuts down good dialogue? Stories are welcome. [Photo, […]

For abortion proponents, “facts are irrelevant”

It’s a lot easier to get someone in the stirrups if they’re uneducated about the subject, and once they’ve had their abortion, facts are going to be irrelevant to them from that point forward, because the denial/anger/misery-loves-company mindset will take over and then she can take her place as the one trying to get someone […]

Time magazine cover story: Abortion proponents on losing path

The title of the January 14 issue of Time magazine reads, “40 years ago, abortion-rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade. They’ve been losing ever since.”

Abortion proponents injure pro-life vet and elderly man in two separate attacks

In recent days we have reported on the assault of a pro-life protester (caught on video and followed by arrest) and the vandalization of a pro-life leader’s home.

Here are two more attacks by abortion supporters against pro-lifers to report.

The first occurred June 30 and is in follow-up to my story that pro-life activists planned to distribute flyers outing country singer JoDell Nauert as the owner of three abortion clinics at an Independence Day gig.

This was ironically a charity event for a group supporting handicapped children and adults.

Surge in pro-abortion vulgarity: Desperate much?

The lips of the righteous know what is fitting,
but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse.
~ Proverbs 32:10


Warning:
Vulgarity ahead.

The other side has apparently determined it can no longer command attention by employing logic. As pro-life ideology begins to dominate politics as well as the thinking American mind, abortion proponents are increasingly exercising the use of shock to make their points.

The recent uptick in pro-abortion vulgarity can somewhat be traced back to Oklahoma Democrat state Senator Judy Eason McIntyre, who couldn’t deal with the passage of a personhood bill in her chamber in March. So she joined a protest holding the stately sign, “IF I WANTED THE GOVERNMENT IN MY WOMB I’D F*** A SENATOR.”

Now you can buy t-shirts.
