  • In the Weekly Standard, Meghan Clyne discusses the “War on Women” rhetoric:

    In the meantime, a perceptive observer may notice a curious thing about this “war on women.” It is based entirely on one set of policies: those pertaining to women’s reproductive systems. By the Democrats’ logic, to oppose abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded contraception is to be “anti-woman.” Womanhood is thus defined by the desire for unrestricted abortion and free birth control; women themselves are reducible to ovaries.

    It was once permissible in American politics to view women as incapable of concerns beyond childbearing — but not in this century. And in addition to insulting women’s intelligence, this approach may well backfire. American women are active, thoughtful citizens; their political concerns are focused on the future of their nation, not the cheapest and easiest way to shut down their reproductive tracts.

  • Here’s another retired abortionist who isn’t making any sense. New Jersey’s The Record has an article in which retired abortion Robert Livingston (pictured left) speaks up about his history of performing illegal abortions, then ridiculously claims he is uncomfortable talking about abortion (as he is giving an interview to a paper about abortion and his history as an abortionist) because of the stigma and ominous environment. The Akin controversy magically left him bursting to talk.
  • In Great Britain, a man has been arrested for killing his former girlfriend after he found out she had an abortion and was seeing another man:

    It was alleged that the day before her death, Mr Lowe – who used Facebook under the name Ian ‘Boom Boom’ Lowe – wrote on the social networking site: “Need a weapon out of the armoury to shoot the bitch.”

    Then, on the day of her killing, the jury was told that he posted another message saying: “Just to let everybody know, Leanne has aborted the baby.

    She did not tell me or even give me a say in the matter.”
