Feminist infighting escalates over mixed messaging on rape

In 2006 there was huge negative fallout at Duke University for what turned out to be false rape charges made by a black stripper against three white LaCrosse team members. In a “tragic rush to accuse,” the men’s names were dragged through the mud, their team’s season canceled, and their coach forced to resign. The signs […]

Saving the 1%: Pro-life bills lose the rape/incest exception

Set aside the spin and snarkiness, and the August 27 New Republic article, “Pro-lifers aren’t even trying to make abortion restrictions sound nice anymore,” contains exciting news: The year 2011 was “The Year of Abortion Restrictions,” when states enacted more new laws narrowing abortion rights than in any other year since Roe v. Wade…. The era of warm and […]

Stanek wkend question: Should both pro-life and pro-choice be pro-gun?

A writer at Policymic.com has a provocative thought:

imageMany abortion supporters in feminist organizations and in liberal celebrity circles strongly defend a woman’s right to choose and to control decisions about what happens to their bodies, however, when it comes to a woman’s right to protect their bodies from potential harm, shamefully these same people are silent….

Stanek weekend question: Should Republicans stop talking about rape?

kellyanne-conwayConservativepollster Kellyanne Conway had sharp advice for Republicans when she spoke at their retreat on January 16. According to Politico:

It’s way past time: House Republicans need to stop talking about rape….

Conway said rape is a “four-letter word,” and Republicans simply need to stop talking about it in their races for office.

Pro-life news brief 1-8-13

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • At National Review, Michael New reports that despite the Rasmussen poll which supposedly showed an increase in pro-choice sentiment following the November election, nothing really changed from their previous April poll:

    Rasmussen’s April survey also showed that likely voters were more likely to describe themselves as “pro-choice” rather than” pro-life,” by a 51–40 margin. In short, the “war on women” rhetoric and the statements by Akin and Mourdock only resulted in a three-percentage-point gain in “pro-choice” sentiment — a difference that falls within the poll’s margin of error….

    [Th]e Democrats’ emphasis on abortion and contraception… likely succeeded in increasing turnout among pro-choice voters. It also likely made pro-choice voters more likely to cast their vote based on the abortion issue. However, the results of the Rasmussen survey provide little evidence that this fall’s election cycle substantially shifted public opinion in favor of legal abortion.

“16 & Pregnant” star slammed as “anti-abortion extremist”

Last week Catelynn posted the following checklist on Instagram with the hashtag #prolife: … Catelynn isn’t just an advocate for adoption. She’s an advocate against abortion as well. Her tweets use anti-abortion rhetoric (“kill an innocent child”) and she’s even against abortion in the case of rape, which is the same extremist anti-abortion position held […]

Pro-life summit: Where are we?

As I indicated yesterday, I attended a summit meeting of pro-life activists and apologists in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday and Tuesday, spearheaded by Mark Harrington of Created Equal.

The summit was to assess where the movement is at in light of the reelection of Barack Obama, also bearing in mind the fact we’re nearing the 40 year mark of legalized abortion in the U.S.

Heads of various groups from around the country and Canada gave their analyses, many via Skype, and also provided a snapshot of their plans for 2013.

I was looking forward to this summit, because in my opinion the paradigm shifted with the reelection of Barack Obama, and I was fumbling with how as a pro-lifer to respond.

Abortion support rising? If so, thank the GOP for aiding and abetting

Rasmussen released a new poll on November 14 indicating that 54% of likely voters now consider themselves pro-choice, while only 38% say they are pro-life.

In the aftermath of the election I told friends to expect a bump in abortion support.

I’m not saying I believe the pendulum has swung the other way by 15 points since the May Gallup poll.

But of course the dial has moved, given the fact Obama and Democrats made such a huge pitch for abortion, and given the fact they embedded themselves, pardon the pun, as the champions of free contraception.
