New Stanek poll: “In terms of religious views, I would prefer to marry a…”

I have a new poll question up:

In terms of religious views, I would prefer to marry a… “

This question occurred to me when reading tweets yesterday by RH Reality Check editor Jodi Jacobson, who claimed there is no difference between fanatical Muslims and Christian pro-lifers.

Jodi will likely find myquestion offensive and misogynist, but I really did wonder if she was so obtuse as to think there would be no difference in the treatment she would receive as a woman from a man who is a Christian and one who is a Muslim.

Conversely, do men really want slave wives?

Pro-life blog buzz 11-11-14

  • Pro-Life Action League reports on the now-closed All Women’s Health in Chicago, run by abortionist Mandy Gittler (who was responsible for the death of Tonya Reaves at a Chicago Planned Parenthood). All Women’s has been accused of scamming women who visited for pap smears and health exams.

New Stanek poll: Does a protracted, painful execution bother you?

I have a new poll question up:

Does a protracted, painful execution during the death penalty process bother you?

Executions have allegedly gone awry three times this year. In Arizona it took two hours for Joseph Wood to dieby lethal injection. There have also been complaints about the executions of Dennis McGuire in Ohioand Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma.

Does news like this bother you? See the poll on the right side of the home page.

For the previous poll question you overwhelmingly swung in favor of the pragmatic, the known…

  • At Slate, Emily Bazelon claims Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro has never killed, even though he allegedly killed Michelle Knight’s five preborn children. Apparently in Bazelon’s mind, unborn children can’t be killed:

    The Supreme Court has so far ruled out the death penalty for crimes other than murder. If you think that’s the right line to draw that the state should not take the life of someone who has not killed then Castro shouldn’t be executed. I have to say I’m having some trouble typing those words. But in this case, I think that’s the right call.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Here were my top five favorite cartoons this week, beginning with a bittersweet Mother’s Day tribute to one of the Cleveland hostages’ moms, who passed away before knowing her daughter was alive. But Amanda Berry is indeed alive and now has her own daughter, Jocelyn, the clearly much loved child of her rapist. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite cartoon in the poll at the bottom of this post.

 I haven’t been this offended by a liberal cartoon in a long time. But Steve Benson at GoComics.com has disgusted me, managing to tie abortion, contraceptive coverage(?!), and “no respect for rape victims” to a horrific story where one of three kidnap victims was beaten and starved until she miscarried five times. She certainly was given no “choice.” It is for this reason her captor may get the death penalty. But to abortion proponents, no story is unrelated to their sick blood lust…

Cleveland kidnapper may face death penalty for forced miscarriages

We need two separate poll questions asked of the public. Hopefully Rasmussen or Gallup or Pew or someone is game. Question one: Does Ariel Castro deserve death? Question two: Does Ariel Castro deserve death for forcing one of his captives to miscarry? I wonder if the number who say yes to question one will be […]

Don’t water down the March for Life

Click to enlarge…

I spotted the above graphic on the Holy Angels Youth Group website (out of Chagrin Falls, Ohio).

Although the graphic was certainly well-intended, it bothered me.

The annual March for Life is scheduled on or near January 22, the anniversary of the infamous U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout all of America in 1973.

Although the M4L website states it is “the collective effort of grassroots prolife Americans to assure that our state and federal laws shall protect the right to life of each human in existence at fertilization,” I think clearly the March is by-and-large a huge demonstration taking a stand against abortion.

Particularly for the above graphic to state the March is to make a statement “against the death penalty,” and to even list it first – before abortion – offends me.

Nightmare future: Top Ten worst rulings by an Obama-stacked Supreme Court

Curt Levey of the Committee for Justice published a truly frightening post at Breitbart.com on November 3, “Obama Supreme Court is the stuff of nightmares.” Levey is an attorney and an expert on the U.S. Supreme Court.

While attention has been given to the consequences of an Obama re-election to the Supreme Court, Levey lays out the actual future, and it would be devastating. The America we are trying to hold on to would be gone.

Levey spells it out:
