Feminist reporter: Abortion is gruesome, but hey, so is childbirth

by Kelli The murder conviction of quack abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell for scissoring viable fetuses to death propelled a new effort to demonize abortion generally. Even moderates like the Times’ [sic] Ross Douthat used the event to remind people how violent and gruesome late-term abortions are when performed by competent doctors, failing to note that […]

  • Kirsten Powers uses her latest column to point out how Wendy Davis doesn’t know what she’s talking about when she speaks on abortion:

    Despite frequently mocking anti-abortion activists as anti-science know-nothings, abortion rights absolutists are the ones who play fast and loose with the facts of abortion. Because they are so rarely asked to defend their positions, Davis and her ilk apparently don’t feel the need to be informed.

    Follow-up questions to their strange and often empirically false statements are almost nonexistent, while offensive or misinformed comments from GOP back benchers are greeted with full-scale media hysteria.

Stanek weekend question: Should pro-lifers embrace economic liberalism?

money-babyNew York Times pro-life columnist Ross Douthat pitched an interesting idea this week:

WHAT happens to a modern society when abortion is restricted? This question is at the heart of the debate over Texas’s new abortion law, which bans abortions after 20 weeks and issues health regulations that could thin the ranks of state abortion clinics, making even first-trimester abortions harder to obtain….

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat In 2012, a foreign national who traveled from Ireland to Great Britain for an abortion died in a taxi cab after having an abortion at a Marie Stopes clinic: The woman died in January 2012. An inquest has not yet been held into the woman’s death as the […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat At First Things, Christopher Kaczor writes about the gradualist development of the right to life and why we should reject it: We should reject, for example, the analogy between the gradual development of a right to life and the gradual attainment of other rights. There is a radical […]

  • At the Daily Caller, our own Jill Stanek writes about President Barack Obama’s history of “blind faith in abortion doctors” like Kermit Gosnell:

    Note Obama expressed concern that saving abortion survivors “might impact… the relationship between the doctor and the patient,” and that this [Illinois Born Alive] legislation was “really designed to burden the original decision….”

    … Obama apparently cannot fathom that an upstanding abortionist who had been paid to kill a baby wouldn’t turn around and try to save a viable baby’s life in the event of a botch.

    Kermit Gosnell would have been one of the abortionists in which Obama had “confidence.”

  • New York Times editorial writer Juliet Lapidos seems to favor a rapist’s right to choose. She believes somehow legislative language – which is clearly designed to punish rapists who coerce their victims into abortion – will ban abortion in cases of rape. I’m not sure if she is willfully ignoring the section of the legislation which reads “with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime” or if in her attempt to parrot pro-abortion blogs, she never actually read the text carefully.

  • Detroit News columnist Laura Berman has a rudderless and rather pointless column entitled, “Rhetoric impedes abortion debate,” discussing Planned Parenthood’s attempt to re-frame the abortion issue and dump the “pro-choice” label. The title is odd coming from someone whose columns have been permeated with pro-choice rhetoric for years. Maybe it’s just pro-life rhetoric that impedes pro-choicers from having their way?

    I think a lot of the talking heads (who are basically tools of PP) are finding difficulty making Planned Parenthood’s newest talking points cohesive with their beliefs and arguments.
