Stanek weekend Q: Will attempts to destigmatize abortion work in pro-life favor?

downloadPro-choice activists are on a new bandwagon: To normalize abortion, no†sob stories are allowed.

For instance, excusing abortions for rape and incest is bad. To do so is to say some abortions are justifiable, some are not. According to post-abortive Merritt Tierce in a New York Times op ed:

Stanek one of “7 women working tirelessly to attack equal rights for women”

Affirmation comes from the strangest places.

Most here know of†Amanda Marcotte, a militant pro-abortion feminist who writes some of the most acerbic, jaw-dropping stuff out there. Amanda may be exasperating and even infuriating, but she is refreshing in that she takes her movement’s beliefs to their fanatical†conclusions, which they more often than not try to hide.

That’s the set-up for a†piece Marcotte just had†posted on†Salon†entitled, “7 women working tirelessly to attack equal rights for other women”†(same piece at AlterNet:†“7 women working tirelessly to screw over other women,”)†with the subtitle, “Sadly, these women find it personally advantageous to reject feminism and continue perpetuating sexist social norms.”

Ray Rice video demonstrates why America should see abortion

The problem with all of this posturing is that the video released by TMZ does not really constitute new -†or at least probative -†evidence at all…. [W]e know from†Riceís own admission that he struck Palmer in that elevator…. But we humans are weird creatures. It is one thing to know, intellectually, that Ray Rice knocked […]

  • At National Review, Michael J. New addresses Politico’s recent poll, the results of which were used to try and make Democrats’ views on abortion appear mainstream, when they aren’t. The Democratic Party supports abortion on demand, not abortion with restrictions.
  • At Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone also responds to the results of both the Politico and Gallup polls:

    “When 80 percent of voters in highly contested states and Congressional districts say they want babies protected from late-term abortions, if not most or all abortions, itís pretty clear who the extremists are Ė those who support abortion on demand.Ē…

Mother gives back adopted son

by Carder I was bleeding heavily, sitting on the rug, crying. My two little ones were hiding behind a chair, crying. And it hit me:†This is a domestic violence situation; if their dad had done this, I would take our children somewhere safe. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even†like†J. In his short little life, […]

Columnist: Pro-life laws cause domestic violence… or maybe not

by Kelli Now, as womenís reproductive freedom faces an unprecedented onslaught of political and legislative threats, domestic violence is suddenly on the rise. Is there a causal link? Probably not. But itís more than just a coincidence…. Scholars and police attribute the increase in intimate partner violence to the overall downturn in the economy. And […]

  • At National Review, Michael J. New says that despite the media’s attempts to paint the views of Wendy Davis and abortion proponents as mainstream, they aren’t:

    The results of the National Journal poll indicate that 50 percent of women support the 20-week abortion ban. Similarly, individuals under 30 supported the ban by a 52-39 margin. Unfortunately, the media typically gives little attention to the demographic breakdown of abortion surveys. After all, they do not want to disrupt their narrative that young people and women support legal abortion.
