Do deaths from legal abortion matter to pro-choicers?

Exactly who perpetrated the fatal abortion doesn’t seem to pique the interest of those who want to hang her death around her distant-relative-by-marriage’s neck.

What I find particularly fascinating is that amid the obsession over Ann Keenan (obsession likely to arise again should [Mitt] Romney aim again for the White House) there is a blithe obliviousness of “safe and legal” abortion deaths.

Unprecedented: RNC boss man and bus load to attend March for Life

Reince Priebus

In a surprising but welcome move, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus is, according to The Washington Times:

…†delaying the start of the partyís annual winter meeting so he and other committee members can join the March for Life on the Mall….

Mr. Priebus, in his second term as elected chairman of the Republican National Committee, chose to delay the start of the four-day winter meeting of the GOP governing body, also scheduled in Washington, to allow himself and RNC members to attend the march. The delay is unprecedented for a major U.S. political party, several state Republican Party chairmen and other RNC members said in telephone interviews.

Mr. Priebus also decided that the RNC will charter a bus to and from the march for those among the RNCís 168 members who wish to attend….

I’m, of course, pleased by this visible show of support by the RNC. It will certainly garner the March for Life much deserved attention that†MSM usually avoids while demonstrating some respect for the pro-life issue at the Republican leadership level. That this is even news demonstrates the perceived lack thereof. Were Chairman Preibus’s counterpart, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to announce she were attending an abortion fest sponsored by Planned Parenthood, the response would be, “But, of course.”

Why sneaker company Mizuno isn’t milking Wendy Davis publicity

imageWhile obviously less important than her actions, it was hard not to notice the pink sneakers Texas State Senator Wendy Davis wore (with her Erdem dress) during her 11-hour filibuster on Monday….

A rep from Mizuno tells WWD that, unsurprisingly, traffic to brandís website nearly doubled, with most visitors searching for Davisís style….

Stanek weekend question II: Do you agree no one who worships the God of Abraham could possibly have voted for Obama?

Failing-Church-plant

Louie Verrecchio is one of Catholic News Agencyís longest running columnists. He wrote an oped this week, reposted by American Life League, that contained several strong statements and one profound one, underlined. Verrecchio was writing to Catholics but Protestants could certainly be included in much of his denouncement.

Wanted, dead or alive: Children for Obama to use as political pawns

It gets redundant pointing out President Obama’s hypocrisy when it comes to his concern for children.

Yesterday, in the wake of the Newtown massacre, Obama used four children as props to sign 23 executive orders to theoretically curb gun violence….

In signing his EOs Obama stated:

This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe. This is how we will be judged…. [W]hen it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now . . . .

Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association is being criticized for a new ad pointing out the hypocrisy of Obama and Washington elitists when it comes to protecting their own children as opposed to ours…

Stanek wkend question: Thoughts on Coulter’s charge that having no rape/incest exception is “insane”?

I like Ann Coulter.

I can’t think of a time when I haven’t agreed with Ann Coulter, even if her rhetoric is sometimes considered over-the-top. I usually enjoy her rhetoric, except her insistence on using the word “retard.”

Rhetoric aside, Coulter is a smart and savvy conservative.

So I was disappointed and stymied by this portion of Coulter’s analysis of the shellacking many Republicans took in Tuesday’s election:

If nothing else, Rove’s white board analyses are archaic

A must read at Time’s Swampland. It’s a brave new techie world…

Sure, GOP, listen to Cecile Richards

In his November 8 Crisis Magazine piece, “Romney’s abandonment of social issues contributed to his defeat,” Austin Ruse cites several Republican and Democrat pundits who are calling on the GOP to abandon the abortion issue in the wake of several defeats.

(One of those Ruse quoteds was Michael Walsh, former editor of Breitbart’s Big Journalism, who edited or nixed my pro-life articles to such an extent I finally stopped submitting them. Unbiased source, he.)

Shock, even Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, joined the chorus. “There’s a clear pathway to [win back women’s support], and it’s to listen to the middle of their party instead of the extreme fringe,” Richards told the Huffington Post.

As if President Obama’s bff and Democrat Party spokesperson really wants to send women back to the GOP. No, Richards’ advice has nothing to do with wanting Republicans to back off from defunding or investigating her big abortion biz.

But hey, Republican Party, listen to these pundits and see what you end up with.
