WOW!!! That appeared in NEWSWEEK???
How'd you re-direct that link so the URL still says "Newsweek.com"
This is obviously just your blog.
No way would News Weak ever publish a story like this.
If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.

But the recent public record has to make committed pro-lifers of both parties wonder just how serious the Democratic leadership is about engaging the abortion debate.
Only RECENTLY have they begun to question the 'Rat leadership? What are they, stupid? The 'Rats have opposed EVERY effort to pass even the most non-controversial anti-abortion laws and they are only NOW questioning the 'Rat leadership?
If I could ask Obama ONE question, I would ask him this: What is THE most important right that any human being holds, that can be infringed upon ONLY under the most extreme circumstances.

(G-d is not a Republican. But Satan is definitely a Democrat.)
Question: Are Obama and Pelosi dodging the life-and-death question?
Answer: They’ve already chosen death as their answer.

When it comes to anthropogenic global warming, the Lefties are quick to invoke the so-called “Precautionary Principle”: since we can’t be sure IF humans are really causing climate change, it’s best to play it safe, and assume we are.
But when it comes to the question of when human life begins, that “Precautionary Principle” is nowhere to be seen. If they can’t be sure when human life begins, shouldn’t they play it safe and assume it begins at conception?
If someone pulls the “Precautionary Principle” on you in a global warming debate, ask them if they’ll extend that principle to the abortion debate - and if they won’t (and they won’t), recast it for what it is - the “Expediency Principle”.

Pelosi, declaring herself an "ardent, practicing Catholic," told Brokaw that "this is an issue that I have studied for a long time"and then got herself into a deep muddle, in which she seemed to confuse St. Augustine with St. Thomas Aquinas (neither of whom, in any case, knew anything about modern embryology); misrepresented the settled (and scientifically informed) judgment of the Catholic Church on when life begins by declaring it an open question, and concluded by suggesting that none of this really makes a difference, because what the scientists, theologians, and philosophers say "... shouldn't have an impact on a the woman's right to choose."
Pelosi should definitely refrain from the Eucharist until she figures all this out. How can someone who has such a position of power and authority be so ignorant? I've got twelve year old granddaughters who could give more coherent answers than she did. I hope she loses her next election to the House. Does she drink too much of the fruit of her vineyard or is it the botox and face lifts?
