Parker: Yes, a woman can be both feminist and conservative

by Kelli Only in Washington would anyone ask this question: Can a woman be both feminist and conservative? Why, yes, she can! But the question does deserve a more serious answer so women can stop fussing over labels and litmus tests to determine whether a woman who doesn’t fall in line with feminist ideology can […]

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.

Goldberg: The “war on women” is over, and women won

by Kelli

To listen to pretty much anyone in the Democratic Party these days, you’d think these are dark days for women. But by any objective measure, things have been going great for women for a long time, under Republicans and Democrats alike.

Women earn 57% of bachelor’s degrees, 63% of master’s degrees and 53% of doctorates. They constitute the majority of the U.S. workforce and the majority of managers. Single women without kids earn 8% more than single men without children in most cities. Women make up almost half of medical school applicants and nearly 80% of veterinary school enrollees.

Stanek weekend question: Does calling abortion a “difficult decision” play into pro-life hands?

imageAn August 15 op ed in the Washington Post makes the case that a common depiction of abortion by proponents plays right into pro-life hands.

Janet Harris, former communications director for the pro-abortion group EMILY’s List, cites several reasons why calling abortion a “difficult decision” cedes ground. She also posits the first clear reason I’ve read why “pro-choice” is problematic:

New York Times touches off race war inside abortion movement

reproductive justice abortion-pro-choice-ireland-3 (1)If you didn’t know what was going on inside pro-abortion world, the Huffington Post piece Planned Parenthood Executive VP Dawn Laguens posted on July 30 in response to the July 28 New York Times article, “Advocates shun ‘pro-choice’ to expand message,” would seem out of left field.

As I explained in a blog last week, the NYT article simply elaborated on a decision Planned Parenthood made 18 months ago to abandon the term “pro-choice” as antiquated.

This is where Laguens seemed to go off on a tangent:

Wendy Davis thinks Abortion Barbie posters are “disgusting”

wendy-davis-facebook-ad Texas state Senator and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, who catapulted to infamy by filibustering a 20-week abortion ban in 2013, is unhappy pro-lifers aren’t letting anyone forget.

Wendy Davis greeted by “Abortion Barbie” posters ahead of Hollywood fundraiser

From Huffington Post, this afternoon:

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis received a hostile greeting in Los Angeles Thursday morning, when life-sized posters depicting her as “Abortion Barbie” began popping up throughout the city ahead of her fundraiser there.

Out-of-state abortion groups boost Wendy Davis’ bid for TX gov

by Kelli Wendy Davis, running for Texas governor on the strength of her stand in favor of late-term abortion, raised nearly $3.80 million in the second half of 2013. Nearly $1.07 million – 28 percent – of that money came from outside of Texas, according to my analysis of her campaign finance filing…. In fact, […]
