Pro-life victory at censoring high school doesn’t stop protest

imageThe title of my February 19 post, “High school censors pro-life club while promoting gay club,” pretty much sums up the backdrop to this follow-up.

At issue was the censorship by Wilson High School in Tacoma, Washington, of posters sponsored by Wilson Students for Life, while it allowed the same for the Wilson Gay Straight Alliance.

On February 24, Bryce Asberg (pictured right), founder of WSFL, and his parents met with principal Dan Besett.

Win for pro-lifers; loss for freedom of expression

Besett gave the Asbergs both good and bad news, according to a press release by Thomas More Society, the pro-life legal group representing WSFL:

Stanek wkend Q: Was there an event that sparked your pro-life passion?

Some of us were raised to have a passion for the pro-life issue. Some of us had an eye-opening conversation, or read something. Some of us had a life-altering experience. What sparked your passion on the abortion issue?

Why sneaker company Mizuno isn’t milking Wendy Davis publicity

imageWhile obviously less important than her actions, it was hard not to notice the pink sneakers Texas State Senator Wendy Davis wore (with her Erdem dress) during her 11-hour filibuster on Monday….

A rep from Mizuno tells WWD that, unsurprisingly, traffic to brand’s website nearly doubled, with most visitors searching for Davis’s style….

Why the preborn have the right to use their mothers’ bodies

What is the nature and purpose of the kidney versus the nature and purpose of the uterus? The answer tells us why a woman is not obligated to give her child her kidney but is obligated to “give” her child her uterus. … The kidneys exist for the health and proper functioning of the body […]

Cher dare: “may god take my voice” if stops standing for abortion

Cher went on another Twitter rant this week, this time promoting abortion, contraception, and Planned Parenthood in her uniquely histrionic and foul-mouthed way.

Tweets are sometimes hard to decipher, as writers try to fit as much into the 140 character limit as possible.

But Cher’s tweets read more like hyper 13yo school girl meets illiteracy. Highlights (after removing unintended html language):

Stanek weekend question: How do you want to be remembered?

Yesterday came the tragic news that young pro-lifer Andrew Moore, age 20, (not my son-in-law) of Concord, California, was struck and killed by a car while walking in Indiana as part of the Crossroads summer sojourn to raise awareness against abortion. Reported LifeNews.com:

At the time of his death, Moore, a Catholic, was reportedly praying the rosary.

Moore was participating in the Crossroads Walk Across America – five separate, simultaneous journeys of college students traversing the U.S. and Canada in defense of the unborn. A rising junior from Concord, California, Moore was part of the Central Walk, which began in San Francisco on May 19 and will conclude in Washington, D.C., on August 9.
