  • At Life Training Institute, The Failed Atheist links to his excellent response to the viral UK video of a pregnant pro-choicer chastising Abort 67 pro-lifers for holding abortion victim images in front of an abortion facility. TFA responds to the woman’s arguments, such as, “It’s wrong to show abortion imagery because we don’t know why they are having an abortion,” “You’re a hypocrite because you’ve had an abortion,” and “Some of the women wanting an abortion may have been abused.”

Rocker Joan Jett panics over elections and “women’s rights”

by Carder Holy smokes. The right-wing is medieval. It just cannot be in charge. In a second, they’ll be dragging out the stocks… Because if you care about women’s rights to control our own bodies and our own paychecks, then you’ve just got to care about this midterm election. ~ Rock musician Joan Jett, panicking […]

Stanek wkend Q: Are you voting for any pro-abortion candidates?

raunerWith the November 4 election around the corner, and early/absentee voting in full swing, have you or will you be voting for a pro-abortion candidate? If so, why?

The photo, right, is of pro-abortion Republican Bruce Rauner, who is running for governor in Illinois against pro-abortion Democrat incumbent Pat Quinn.

Pro-life Republicans have been told to vote for Rauner despite his stance on abortion because he is the lesser of two evils. Illinois is deeply in debt, and he’s a great businessman, we’re told. He’ll save the state.

  • At ProLife365, Kevin Kukla responds to those who complain pro-lifers are “single issue voters,” as if that’s somehow a bad thing when it comes to the most basic human right. He points to an illustration from Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life:

Wendy Davis reveals her late-term “quieting of the heart” abortion

Wendy Davis late-term abortion

One of the plot lines in a movie I watched over the weekend involved a pregnant mother. The film was set in the 1940s, and I thought how blissfully ignorant were the days before ultrasounds and prenatal diagnoses gave mothers carrying ill or handicapped children the choice to bear them when nature decided or kill them beforehand.

Had Texas state senator and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis been pregnant back then she would not have imagined the late-term baby girl doing flips inside her was “suffering.” Rather, Davis would have put her hand on her belly and smiled. Instead, quoting from Davis’ upcoming book, Forgetting to be Afraid, via the AP:

Pro-life summit: What next?

As I wrote yesterday, since the election I’ve been pondering where we are as a nation and a world.

I vacillate between thinking 1) the end of the civilization known as the United States of America is near, 2) the apocalypse is near, and 3) I’m overreacting.

Most often I think it’s a combination of #1 and #2, although I do try to temper myself.

And what if this is so, I’ve asked myself? Where does this leave the pro-life movement? Why is God continuing to allow these millions of abortions – almost half a billion around the world per decade – and with them the worldwide decimation of demographics by age and gender? What is He thinking? How does unfathomable tragedy fit into His plan?

Well, of course I know His thoughts are not my thoughts, and His ways are higher than mine. But I still think about these things. I’ve learned there are four ways to determine the will of God: Scripture, prayer, Godly counsel, and circumstances. So I always do try to keep an eye on what’s going on around me, just in case there is something obvious I can take note of.

So I took all this baggage with me to the summit, knowing I would be in the company of Godly counselors. My takeaways, plagiarizing Mark Harrington of Created Equal in places:

Big winners of the election: The “self-absorbed” and “narcissistic”

Yes, Obama is the master of the “basic instincts” of his self-centered, narcissistic base. It’s not complicated once you understand the con. To blacks he was one of their own and that was really all that mattered. They were in the bag from the start, 95% plus. To Hispanics, he bought their vote with his […]

What the unthinkable means

I wished to myself when I woke up this morning that we had a prophet like Isaiah to help us understand what is happening.

Then, of course, I realized we do have Isaiah. And we have history. We have the cycle of the Israelites to teach us, and the cycles of great human civilizations.

Ancient cultures like Egypt, Rome, and Greece all eventually collapsed because the people gave themselves over to idolatry and sexual debauchery.

Among followers of the God of the Bible there may be a similar cycle, but there is always a remnant that holds fast to Him, whom He protects and restores.
