New Yorker writer: Pro-life = pro-gun control

“Gun control” means controlling those things whose first purpose is to help people kill other people… And the idea that you can be pro-life and still be pro-gun: if your primary concern is actually with the sacredness of life, then you have to stand with Richard Martinez [pictured], in memory of his son.

  • The public editor of the New York Times feels the March for Life deserved more than just a photograph.
  • Christopher O. Tollefsen writes in The Public Discourse about Roe:

    The court declined to answer this question: “We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins.” But Justice Blackmun then proceeded to suggest that the reason this question did not need settling was its unsettle-ability.

  • Salon has a piece by Katie McDonough in which fetal pain is called “a lie.” McDonough’s cited source for this conclusion is one review of studies by abortion advocates and late-term abortionist Anne Davis, who is also the consulting medical director at Physicians for Reproductive Health.

    On the one hand, he found it problematic that I led and continue to lead a campaign to beseech Catholic bishops to obey canon 915 and deny Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians. On the other hand, he finds it Christlike to dine with the most pro-abortion president in the history of this nation.

  • There really must be something in the records of Planned Parenthood in Kansas as they’ve asked for the records back. We know it’s not patient privacy Planned Parenthood is concerned with, it’s covering up their willingness to not report statutory rape.
