New language in 20-week abortion ban virtually ensures an end to late-term abortions

admin-ajaxYesterday, the U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act by a vote of 242-184-1.

In the gallery for the debates and vote, I was as horrified by pro-abortion opposition as I was elated by pro-life support.

Most egregious was Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who evoked faith, God, and even the song “Glory” from the movie Selma to defend the right to dismember 5-mo-old children (beginning at 33:32).

Planned Parenthood strategist goes rogue

Dawn Laguens of Planned Parenthood abortion group and Carter Eskew of Glover Park GroupPlanned Parenthood executive VP Dawn Laguens (pictured above right) took Glover Park Group’s founding partner Carter Eskew (pictured below right) apart in a drippingly sarcastic August 22 Huffington Post piece, “Thanks for the lecture”:

In a recent Washington Post blog post… Eskew took the reproductive rights movement to task, and not a minute too soon by his watch. In his column, he explains that advocates for reproductive health are mired in “convoluted, poll-tested messaging” and “cannot win the debate as it is currently framed.” He probably imagines he’s doing us a favor, but he instead seems to be just tuning in to a conversation that’s literally happening all around him.

In his WashPo piece, Eskew basically concurred with me, without naming names, that pro-abortion messaging has become a hot mess:

Interview: “2016” filmmaker ties Obama’s abortion support to his anti-colonialist beliefs

My husband and I saw the film 2016: Obama’s America last night.

2016 is based on Dinesh D’Souza’s 2010 best-selling book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage. The movie was advertised on this site for several weeks.

Both the book and movie attempt to make sense of Obama’s otherwise inexplicable decisions as president by tying them to his anti-colonialist roots and subsequent belief system. Both of Obama’s parents were anti-colonialists, as was his adolescent mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and several of his professors and adult peers, particularly Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

2016 is a box office hit. As of this weekend 2016 had grossed $18.2 million, making it the highest grossing conservative documentary of all time. 2016 still has a ways to go to compete with its liberal competitor, Fahrenheit 9/11, which grossed $119.2 million.

We found 2016 quite compelling. If nothing else, Obama’s childhood and adult ideological influences would shock American sensibilities.

But I left the movie with a question: How does Obama’s anti-colonial beliefs play into his radical pro-abortion beliefs?

John Schneider on “October Baby” and the life affirming films he’s been making lately

Jon Erwin, co-writer/director of October Baby, and actor John Schneider, who had a starring role in the film, appeared together this weekend at the Catholic Pro-Life Committee’s annual Bishop’s Dinner in Dallas.

As you can tell by the picture, I got to briefly meet John, who was very nice.

I’ve been curious about Schneider’s thought processes these days. The former Dukes of Hazzard heartthrob has been making some interesting film choices of late, such as pro-life bookends, Doonby and October Baby; the soon-to-be-released pro-family film, Hardflip; and the sex trafficking film, Not Today.

Bachmann, Gingrich spar on Partial Birth Abortion, Planned Parenthood, support of pro-abortion candidates

Last night an issue that infuriates most pro-lifers – that of Republican leadership promoting pro-abortion candidates – arose by means of the most vile example possible: partial birth abortion. During Fox’s Republican presidential debate, Michele Bachmann accused Newt Gingrich of campaigning for pro-pba candidates, and just as bad, of using his power as Speaker of […]

Breaking: New Hampshire to become fifth state to defund Planned Parenthood this year

UPDATE, 6:55p: Here’s some more information from Family Research Council, in an email alert this afternoon: In a surprise move, the state’s Executive Council – which, along with the Governor, oversees all of the Granite State’s contracts – rejected $1.8 million in Planned Parenthood funding over the next two years. Believe it or not, this […]

The Pill, pregnancy, and the DaVinci Code

In the book, The Da Vinci Code, the first clue was a “vault with 5 concentric, rotating sections labeled with letters that when lined up properly… form[ed] the correct combination word,” as explains Wikipedia. Similarly, the birth control pill’s Big Secret can only be discovered after decoding a series of words – except they never […]
