Rabbi: Preborn are “water” until day 40, but pro-lifers ignore science

smuly_outdoors_best.previewby Kelli

In the case of abortion, Jewish law leans toward the modern pro-choice position, but also holds many powerful arguments for pro-life as well….

In the first forty days since conception, the fetus is considered by the sages to merely be water, and as “the thigh of its mother” (Yevamot 69b; Bava Kama 78b). After forty days however, the fetus is ascribed as a fully potential life whereupon that potential life becomes a full life upon birth. After birth, of course, there is a full status change….

  • At National Review, Michael J. New addresses Politico’s recent poll, the results of which were used to try and make Democrats’ views on abortion appear mainstream, when they aren’t. The Democratic Party supports abortion on demand, not abortion with restrictions.
  • At Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone also responds to the results of both the Politico and Gallup polls:

    “When 80 percent of voters in highly contested states and Congressional districts say they want babies protected from late-term abortions, if not most or all abortions, it’s pretty clear who the extremists are – those who support abortion on demand.”…

Rick Santorum: Truth doesn’t change, and it’s on the pro-life side

staneksantorumby Kelli

No one would have predicted that 40 yrs after Roe v. Wade, that teenagers and 20 year olds would be more pro-life than the generation that gave us Roe v. Wade. That tells you that truth is a very stubborn thing. Truth doesn’t go away just because people deny it…. And people, while they don’t want to accept it because it doesn’t fit with how they want to live their lives and the “freedom” that they have, they keep running into it, and when they hear it, they’re troubled by it….

Pro-choice extremism: Opposing public opinion, science and medicine

abortion-protesters-550x374Looking at Gallup over the years, opposition to abortion after six months has never dropped below 80 percent. Even at three months, the numbers are still impressive: Over 60 percent of Americans consistently oppose abortions after the first trimester, and in 2011 they rose to 71 percent.

If these were election results, you’d call it a landslide….

NARAL secretly hired Obama-linked firm to interview pro-life Gen Yers

They asked me about my thoughts on abortion, about policy, about underlying belief that would lead to certain conclusions. It was pretty comprehensive. It was very long…. It seems like [new NARAL president Ilyse Hogue] is well aware of the fact that there is a growing movement especially among younger people that can’t ignore the […]

The title of the January 14 issue of Time magazine reads, “40 years ago, abortion-rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade. They’ve been losing ever since.”

Stanek weekend question: Is it time to change pro-life tactics?

UPDATE 5/6, 6a: Dustin has emailed me a link to a clarification he wrote of his original post, here.

5/5, 11:53: Dustin Siggins, associate producer with The Laura Ingraham Show and co-author of a forthcoming book about the national debt, authored a piece that piqued my interest in CrisisMagazine.com on May 1, “Time to change pro-life tactics?”

I usually don’t post my opinion when asking weekend questions but frankly, Siggins’ op ed ticked me off, and I can’t contain myself.
