Obama DOJ drops one FACE lawsuit, doubles down on another

I’ve been following two (of eight) Freedom of Access to Clinics Act cases brought by Obama’s Department of Justice against pro-life activists.

There is good news to report on one and bad on another.

District court judges in both lawsuits had ruled against the DOJ, and the ball was in the DOJ’s court.

Pro-choice pol: Pro-life women really “men with breasts”

I do not understand how a woman in this Legislature can say to herself: “I’m not capable of making my own health decisions… but I can get elected and make them for somebody else.”… What is wrong with these women? What are they thinking about? Are they women? Or are they men with breasts? ~ Democrat […]

New Stanek poll: How will the Supreme Court rule on Obamacare?

Poll 2.pngI have a new poll question up:

How do you think the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on Obamacare?

Politico posted a piece today detailing six ways the Supremes might go. I have listed those as options in the poll on the lower right side of the home page.

The majority of you got the last question right: “How many states do you think are down to one abortion clinic?”

  • Matthew Hennessey on the unnaturalness of abortion:

    (Abortion) is a lot of things. Natural, it is not.

    Yet, somehow the politics of this have gotten all turned around. The greenies are in league with the pro-abortion people. The same ones who promote all-natural living—organic fruits, locally-grown vegetables, hormone-free milk, free-range chickens, solar panels, wind turbines, etc. — are usually the same ones who want to make sure that women everywhere have unlimited access to synthetic compounds — gemeprost, methotrexate, mifepristone, misoprostol, etc. — that cause abortions.

Lunch Break: “Cecile Richards Does Not Speak For Me.”

by LauraLoo This video was made in response to Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards calling on women to make videos called, “I Have a Say.”  Here are Catholic women – and the men who love them – who have a say. Amen to our pro-life brothers and sisters! Musical accompaniment is by one of my favorite […]

All about “October Baby”

UPDATE 3/26, 10:45a: October Baby did very well at the box office this weekend. According to The Hollywood Gossip:

The anti-abortion drama October Baby opened in 390 theaters nationwide this weekend, earning the second-highest per-screen average behind The Hunger Games.
Samuel Goldwyn released the movie, starring Rachel Hendrix, John Schneider and Jasmine Guy, primarily in favorable political environments, earning $1.7M….

The movie’s overall gross is technically $1.9 million now….

In an effort to finance a wider release, filmmakers were able to raise $3 million from investors. To promote the film, its backers screened it for church groups and ran advertisements on networks such as Fox News.

While its niche may be relatively small, it is that dedicated, laser-targeted audience that helped make fellow faith-based fare Fireproof, starring Kirk Cameron, one of the most successful independent films of 2008, grossing $33.5 million.

According to Box Office Mojo, October Baby landed in the top 10 for the weekend, quite respectable.

UPDATE 3/26, 10:27a: I went to see October Baby Saturday night with a group of pro-life friends and was pleasantly surprised by a bonus feature that ran during film credits but was not in the cut I was sent to review.  Actress Shari Rigby spoke of her own abortion and the healing she had received.
