Building pro-life culture requires no “squishy Republicans”

by Kelli Renee Ellmers, Chris Christie and their ilk are fools if they think we will go back and quietly graze like meek little sheeple. … I would rather be defeated by Hillary than represented by Ellmers… Or Christie, if he is truly so foolish as to say that pro-lifers do not care about children […]

New Stanek poll: My pick for 2016 GOP presidential nominee is…

imageI have a new poll question up:

My pick for 2016 Republican presidential nominee is…

Yes, it’s early! But the field is vastly populated with hopefuls, and it’s not too soon for pro-life voices to be heard.

Choices in alpha order are: John Bolton, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, and Scott Walker.

  • Pro-Life Action League reports on the audacity of one abortion clinic: After being fined $36K for violations related to the death of a woman and their first inspection in 15 years, the clinic changed its name and location to avoid the fine.

Stanek endorses Romney

I have a soft spot for pro-life converts, which Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is. I think pro-lifers could do a much better job of supporting them. I think it is time for that to happen for some of us who have been reluctant about Romney. The fact that he used to be pro-abortion is the major hang-up.

I’ve told the story before of meeting then-gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie at the New Jersey’s Rally for Life in 2009, where he was being maligned by his primary opponent as a fake, a political opportunist. There were even a few boos when he was introduced. Feeling sorry for Christie, who looked a little out of place, I approached his table during dinner, introduced myself, and sat down to offer encouragement for his conversion. He lightened up and talked a mile a minute, describing how he had changed his view on the life issue when becoming a father in the 1990s.

To start out pro-abortion and end up pro-life cannot be an easy process, particularly when one is in the public eye.

Silver lining: Federal fight to defund Planned Parenthood has led to state defunding victories

The far left organization Netroots Nation held its annual conference last week in Minnesota, and one of the breakout panels was “Protecting reproductive rights in your state.” The entire 1+ hour discussion is interesting, linked above. It’s always helpful to see what the other side is thinking. For this post I want to focus on […]

Donald Trump, pro-life convert?

Politics Daily tells of Donald Trump’s announcement at CPAC yesterday that he has converted to being pro-life. The article quoted pro-lifers thinking this was “good news, I suppose,” “cautious,” and “intrigued.” I tweeted, “I would love to believe Donald Trump has converted,” getting back one response, “eye roll.” Welcoming converts is one area where I […]

Stanek Sunday funnies 1-30-11

The Gosnell live-birth abortion mass murders, in conjunction with the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, provided an opening for several political cartoons on our topic this week. Even liberals like Signe Wilkinson at GoComics.com were incensed… by Glenn McCoy at Townhall.com…

Jivin J’s Life Links 1-26-11

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat At the Philly Post, Morgan Zalot (who describes herself as being “100% pro-choice”) examines Kermit Gosnell’s abortion business and asks “What About the Mothers?”: Infant Safe Haven laws, or “Baby Moses laws,” date back to 1999, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for […]
