"Babies are just like rapists" (Liberals aren't just wrong, they're stark raving mad)

Particularly at the later stages of pregnancy, the right to abortion does not protect an interest in killing a fetus as such. What it protects instead is the woman's interest in not being physically, internally occupied by another creature against her will, the same interest that explains the right to use deadly force, if necessary, to stop a rapist. Though the fetus is innocent of any intentional wrongdoing and the rapist is not, the woman's interest in repelling an unwanted physical intrusion is quite similar. . .

Pastor Imprisoned for Pro-Life Sidewalk Counseling Writes Letter from Prison

OAKLAND, California, April 3, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - "It is Thursday, March 26th, 2009 and I am sitting on the top of the second of fifteen bunks in housing unit thirty-four east of the Santa Rita jail in Dublin, California," begins a recent letter from Oakland pastor Walter Hoye, who was sent to jail on March 23 for peacefully counseling and picketing at a local abortion facility.

Hoye was ordered to serve 30 days in county jail by Judge Stuart Hing of the Alameda Superior Court, who found him guilty of unlawfully approaching two persons entering an abortion facility in Oakland and offering information about abortion alternatives.

Judge Hing said that at first he intended to impose no fine or jail time if Rev. Hoye agreed to stay one hundred yards away from the abortion facility for three years. Rev. Hoye refused this term of probation and would not agree to the stay-away order, whereupon the judge denied the defense motion to stay the sentence pending appeal. Mr Hoye was taken into custody from the courtroom.

Rev. Hoye is an African-American pastor who says he feels a special calling to work for the end of what he calls the genocide by abortion taking place in the African-American community. As part of his efforts, he stands in front of an abortion facility in Oakland with leaflets offering abortion alternatives and a sign reading, "Jesus loves you and your baby. Let us help."

Rev. Hoye continues his letter from prison by directing his thoughts to the responsibility of his fellow pastors to act on behalf of the unborn: "Here my thoughts turn towards my brothers, men of the cloth, men who are called and sanctified by God the Father. Men who are preserved as the bondservants of Jesus Christ. Men who serve as the holy burden bearers of God's word. Men who are the watchmen on the wall. It is now in the spirit of the prophet Ezekiel, I write to my fellow watchmen on the wall."

Noting the statistics on abortion of African Americans, Rev. Hoye writes: "Brothers, in Black America alone every seventy-two seconds a black baby is murdered in the womb of his or her mother. This holocaust is genocidal to the point that today a black child has less than a fifty-percent chance of being born. According to the 2006 U.S. Census, Black Americans are below the replacement level.

"In other words, death in Black America outpaces life. Abortion alone accounts for three times more deaths in our community than HIV/AIDS, Violent Crimes, Accidents, Cancer, and Heart Disease combined. There is no question pre-natal murder, abortion, is the number one issue in not only Black America, but in all of America today."

Obamamania Infects Notre Dame

Controversy has erupted over Notre Dame's invitation to President Barack Obama to speak at its May commencement ceremony. The president will address the university and receive an honorary doctorate in law.

Bishop John J. D'Arcy of the Fort Wayne-South Bend diocese has decided not to attend the commencement, explaining, "My decision is not an attack on anyone, but is in defense of the truth about human life." Bishop D'Arcy's position is reflective of the outrage of many in the Catholic community.

Their angst is understandable since Mr. Obama has pursued a strong anti-life agenda both before and after assuming the office of president. Indeed, Mr. Obama’s actions are at odds with the very foundations of American law and justice: a belief that all men are created equal and that innocent human life should be protected by the state. . .

US News, PBS Media Host Bonnie Erbe Defends View More Abortions Needed

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- US News & World Report contributing editor and PBS television show host Bonne Erbe came under fire for her celebration of abortion increases in light of the sour economy. Now, the media wallah is defending her position after hearing news that the use of food stamps has risen.

The use of food stamps, according to Agriculture Department figures, rose in all but four states during January and three states saw usage rise more than five percent.

"I blogged earlier this week about the rise in birth control usage and abortion due to the recession," Erbe writes today. "These figures back up my assertion that the last thing young, unemployed, or already large families should be doing is creating more mouths to feed."

Erbe complained more abortions are needed because "foods banks nationwide are reporting shortages and it's only going to get worse."

Earlier this week, Erbe celebrated the fact that women are turning to abortions who believe they can't afford to have a baby. . .

(Montana) Doctors proving reluctant to assist in patient deaths

HELENA — While a district court judge has ruled it is a right protected in the state constitution, life-ending treatment has proved elusive for many patients in Montana, an advocacy group said Friday.

One such patient is Janet Murdock of Missoula, a 67-year-old woman who is dying from ovarian cancer and has asked doctor for a prescription that would bring about her death to no avail.

Murdock, through the Denver-based advocacy group Compassion and Choices, released a statement Friday in hopes of highlighting the issue that a spokesman for the group said is not unique.

“I feel as though my doctors do not feel able to respect my decision to choose aid in dying,” Murdock said in the statement. “Access to physician aid in dying would restore my hope for a peaceful, dignified death in keeping with my values and beliefs. . .

Senate Rejects Amendment Protecting Abortion-Conscience Rights for Doctors (Action Alert!)

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Senate on Thursday night rejected an amendment from a pro-life senator that would have provided conscience protection on abortion for doctors and medical centers. The amendment comes at a time when President Barack Obama is considering overturning further protections.

Sen Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, sponsored an amendment to the Senate budget bill that would protect the right of conscience for health care workers.

His budget amendment was to "protect the freedom of conscience for patients and the right of health care providers to serve patients without violating their moral and religious convictions."

However, the Senate rejected the conscience amendment on a 56-41 vote with most of the chamber's Democrats voting against it along with a handful of pro-abortion Republicans.

Three Democrats joined most of the Senate Republicans in voting for the Coburn amendment. . .

Latest 40 Days for Life Pro-Life Campaign Ends, Abortion Centers Close as Result

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The latest 40 Days for Life campaign has ended, but many pro-life advocates say they are so encouraged by their involvement that they want to continue. Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life's spring campaign director, tells Lifenews.com that it has resulted in closing abortion centers.

He said, "If there's a main theme I'm hearing from the tens of thousands of participants around the country at the completion of this spring's 40 Days for Life campaign, it's 'We don't want to stop!'"

"People have witnessed first-hand that a prayerful presence outside abortion facilities saves lives, and they know they will see additional results by continuing their vigils," Carney added. . .

Canadian Archbishop: ‘Early Induction’ on Babies with Lethal Fetal Anomaly is “Direct Abortion”

TORONTO, April 3, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The scandal of priests advising mothers whose babies are diagnosed with lethal fetal anomalies that having an early induction in such cases is not opposed to Catholic teaching is not new. The problem was already apparent in 2002, and denounced by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast in a column in The Catholic Register.

The issue came to the fore recently after LifeSiteNews.com published an exposé of such recommendations and procedures at St. Joseph’s Catholic hospital in London Ontario. Fr. Michael Prieur the ethical director at the hospital is responsible for the practice and believes it in synch with Catholic teaching.

Two mothers revealed to LSN that they were advised by Fr. Prieur that early induction would be permissible according to Catholic teaching since their children were diagnosed with lethal fetal anomalies. In both cases, the mothers' lives were not in any danger from their pregnancy, they were not asking for early induction and their strong sense that it was wrong caused them to reject the advice given to them by Father Prieur. . .

An amazing story of an abortion survivor.

Thread by do the dhue.

Abortion Survivor Sarah Smith

Twins -- one aborted, one survives!

Sarah tells her story . . .

"Twenty-nine years ago, my mother decided to have an abortion. At the time, she was pregnant with twins, but nobody knew this, not even her doctor. My tiny brother and I were both there growing in her womb, until that dreadful day. Before the abortion, we were both alive. Moments later, I was alone.

It's frightening to think I was almost aborted when my mom had a D&C abortion. Somehow, miraculously, I survived! My twin brother wasn't so lucky. Andrew was aborted and we lost him forever.

Several weeks later, my mother was shocked to feel me kicking in her womb. She already had five children and she knew what it felt like when a baby kicked in the womb. She instantly knew that somehow she was still pregnant. She went back to the doctor and told him she was still pregnant...that she had made a big mistake and that she wanted to keep this baby.

To this day, my mother deeply regrets that abortion. I know the pain is unbearable for her at times when she looks at me and knows she aborted my twin brother. Mom says 'the protective hand of Almighty God saved my life . . . that God's hand covered and hid me in her womb, and protected me from the scalpel of death. . .

Doctor Mehmet Oz Tells Oprah's Audience Embryonic Stem Cell Research Debate is Dead

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A recent appearance by Dr. Mehmet Oz, a cardiovascular surgeon at Columbia University and a regular on Oprah Winfrey's popular eponymous television program, is generating buzz within pro-life circles. During the program, Oz told Americans the truth about embryonic stem cell research.

Oz made it clear that the "stem cell debate is dead" mostly in part because embryonic stem cells have yet to catch up to their adult stem cell and iPS cell counterparts.

The comments are drawing interest because Oz made them in front of the iconic television personality and embryonic stem cell research advocate Michael J. Fox who has warped and twisted the positions of pro-life advocates during previous elections.

"The problem with embryonic stem cells is that embryonic stem cells come from embryos, like all of us were made from embryos, and those cells can become any cell in the body," Oz explained.

"But it's very hard to control them and so they can become cancer," Oz added, pointing to the efficacy problems of the cells causing tumors after injection into animals during experiments. . .

Mentally disabled man taken off respirator

BATAVIA, Ohio, April 7 (UPI) -- A mentally disabled Ohio man suffering from terminal cancer has been removed from the respirator and feeding tube keeping him alive.

Ronnie Dragoo's sisters want their brother's life to end peacefully with as little pain as possible, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. But Cindy Dragoo of Miami, Ohio, and Donna Dragoo Theile of Newtonsville have no authority to make medical decisions for their brother because he is a ward of the state, so he remained on the respirator.

"I have prayed to God to have him die," Theile said. "No one deserves this."

The sisters said that their brother is unable to speak in full sentences.

"He doesn't know what dying means," Cindy Dragoo said.

Kathleen Rinto of Advocacy and Protective Services Inc., which has a contract with Ohio to serve as guardians for the mentally disabled, said that two doctors must sign off on decisions that could end someone's life and that the person must be in a coma or terminally ill, the newspaper said. . .

Poll: Americans Want Obama to Keep Abortion Conscience Clause in Place

Washington, DC -- A new national poll of Americans finds a strong majority want President Barack Obama to keep conscience protections in place for doctors and medical centers. The president is considering rescinding the protections the Bush administration adopted to enforce three federal conscience laws.

The protections make it more clear and provide support for doctors or medical facilities that feel pressured to participate in abortions.

Support for this new regulation outpaced opposition by a margin of more than 2-to-1 (63% vs. 28%).

Former Vatican Ambassador: Notre Dame Scandal Will "Wake Catholics Up"

NOTRE DAME, Indiana, April 7, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A former ambassador to the Vatican has criticized the University of Notre Dame's decision to honor President Obama by inviting him to deliver the school's commencement address and to receive an honorary law degree. The former ambassador noted, however, that the scandal will likely serve to "wake Catholics up" to the impact of pro-abortion celebrities on Catholic culture. At the same time, the founder of the Acton Institute, the influential Rev. Robert Sirico, a prominent Catholic priest and writer, has expressed his "shame and sorrow" over the invitation by sending back a statue of Mary given to him by the University.

On FOX News' "Hannity" show April 3, Jim Nicholson, former secretary of Veterans Affairs and former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, told host Sean Hannity that while he considered University president Fr. John Jenkins "a fine man," he agreed with U.S. bishops who concluded Notre Dame "made a grievous error, and it's an embarrassment to themselves and the Church."

"I mean nothing, nothing is more fundamentally important to Catholic doctrine today than the sanctity of life, and this president who has a lot of attributes and has created a lot of excitement being the first African-American president and so forth has just had an assault, an onslaught on life the two months he's been in office," said Nicholson.

"I think that may be one of the redeeming results of this is that it's going to kind of wake Catholics up," he added. . .

"Utterly Appalled" Bishop Bruskewitz Issues Stinging Condemnation to "Formerly Catholic" ND

LINCOLN, Nebraska, April 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of the Lincoln Diocese today made public his condemnation of the Notre Dame scandal. His comments bring the number of U.S. bishops to 30 protesting the school's invitation to President Obama to speak at commencement and receive an honorary law degree May 17.

Bishop Bruskewitz supplied the letter addressed to University president Fr. John Jenkins today to the Cardinal Newman Society, who is hosting a petition against the scandal, now bearing well over a quarter million signatures (http://www.notredamescandal.com).

"Permit me to add my name as well to the long list of Bishops of the Catholic Church who are utterly appalled at your dedication to immorality and wrong-doing represented by your support for the obscenity called 'The Vagina Monologues' and your absolute indifference to the murderous abortion program and beliefs of this President of the United States," reads the brief letter, dated April 3. 

"The fact that you have some sort of past connection with the State of Nebraska makes it all the more painful that the Catholic people here have to see your betrayal of the moral teachings of the Catholic Church," Bruskewitz wrote.  "I can assure you of my prayers for your conversion, and for the conversion of your formerly Catholic University." . . .

We are your bad conscience.

The statute allows hospitals and other medical facilities that believe a patient is too far gone to help to give their families just 10 days to find another facility that will offer the treatment or lifesaving medical care. . .

“We're looking at bankruptcy” (Oldest abortion clinic in USA)

Unable to pay its rent, an Oakland abortion clinic in business for 36 years has announced it is closing. The Women’s Choice Clinic at 570 14th Street, which claims to be the oldest abortion clinic in the U.S., made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

The clinic and its leadership have long been associated with the radical Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights (BACORR), which in January organized counter-demonstrations to the West Coast Walk for Life and has characterized pro-lifers as “anti-abortion bigots.”

Linci Comy, executive director of the clinic for 21 years and on its staff since 1977, is a longtime member of BACORR.

Remembering the Nazis’ War on the ‘Genetically Unfit’

BEFORE the Nazis began the mass murder of Jews, they started to sterilize or kill hundreds of thousands of their own — non-Jewish Germans, including children, who were considered mentally or physically defective. They even issued a “Ten Commandments for Choosing a Mate” that advised against marrying a person with an undesirable characteristic, or the possibility of inheriting one: “Never marry the one good person from a bad family.”

This intensive war against the “genetically unfit” is one of the areas explored in “Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race,” a handsome and harrowing exhibition about the Nazis’ use of science, at Charles B. Wang Center at Stony Brook University through June 12. The exhibition, a traveling version of one that opened at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington in April 2004, will be accompanied by 10 public events and lectures by experts in fields like medicine, history and philosophy.

Besides the extent of Nazi mutilation and murder, “it’s also surprising how accepted it was by the medical establishment in Germany,” said Jack Coulehan, a Stony Brook professor emeritus who still teaches medical ethics and was involved in bringing the exhibition to the university. “These were all doctors who had devoted their lives to healing,” Dr. Coulehan said as he walked through the display, which includes photos, explanatory texts, excerpts from Nazi literature and eight screens showing Nazi propaganda films with English subtitles and other footage.

One film shows people in asylums, while a voiceover says that the money spent on them could be better used elsewhere. A wall of photographs focuses on 8 of the 5,000 children killed by injection or starvation. Another film features interviews with Jewish survivors, including victims of Nazi experiments on twins. . .

“Most proficient killing machine in the United States" ( Planned Parenthood )

FRONT ROYAL, Va., April 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- "For decades now, Planned Parenthood has operated the most proficient killing machine in the United States," said Douglas R. Scott Jr., president of Life Decisions International (LDI). "And for decades, the machine has killed more preborn children than the year before."

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has released its Annual Report for 2007-2008. The behemoth admits that it slaughtered 305,310 preborn human beings in 2007 alone (up nearly 5.4 percent from 2006), which generated an estimated $130 million. Only 4,912 Planned Parenthood customers were referred to adoption agencies. . .

Wesley J. Smith: The No Longer Shocking Assisted Suicide Scene from Soylent Green

I was shocked by this assisted suicide scene when Soylent Green first came out-in the early 1970s--and believe me, I was not alone. As the audience left the theater, we assured ourselves, "It can't happen here."

How wrong we were. No one dreamed that less than 40 years later assisted suicide clinics exactly like the one depicted in the movie--absent the beautiful videos--would legally operate in Switzerland, and would service hundreds of people from around the world. Had you told us that a ghoul named Jack Kevorkian, who dreamed of conducting human vivisection, would assist the suicides of some 130 (mostly disabled) people to general societal applause, we would have thought you mad. . .

Sick Canadian Newborn Whose Parents Want To Use as a Heart Donor Not Terminal

TORONTO, April 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A two month-old child at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, described in the media as "dying," has defied doctor's predictions and continued to live after the removal of a respirator. The respirator was removed in the expectation that the child would stop breathing, and that her heart could then be harvested for transplant. Her parents have expressed their disappointment that another child who is being cared for at the hospital will now not receive their daughter's heart. . .

How Abortion Became Fashionable

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA—In his tremendous novel War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy observes that some men “choose their opinions like their clothes—according to fashion.” He adds that no matter how derivative their views are, such men may hold those views with all the passion of partisans.

How true. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard people parrot clichés as if they were voicing their own hard-won, independent convictions. In college, I had more than one professor whose political ideas seemed to have been culled from the bumper stickers in an academic parking lot. (They weren’t grateful when I pointed this out.)

A free mind is a rarity, really. I was reminded of this sad truth by the news that Notre Dame University plans to award an honorary degree to Barack Obama this spring. The ostensible meaning of this gesture is that a Catholic university plans to honor our first black president. Seems simple, no? But another way to look at it is this: A nominally Catholic university is honoring America’s foremost apostle of abortion.

The devil must be cackling. As the great French poet Charles Baudelaire put it: “Satan’s cleverest wile is to make us think he doesn’t exist.” Most educated people nowadays assume he doesn’t exist, which makes them easy prey for him. . .

“You're making our work here difficult!” (PLANNED PARENTHOOD)

ORANGE COUNTY Alejandra in Orange County passed along this amazing report of how one little girl's faith helped to save the life of a baby: "Tim came to me with his daughter and told me that his little girl (about 4 years old) told him before he went to Planned Parenthood, 'Take this plate of cookies and give it to a Mommy. Tell her to keep them so that she can give them to her baby when he is born.'

When Tim approached one of the women that he talked to last Saturday morning, he told her the message of his little daughter. The woman broke into tears and the thought of not being able to give her baby the plate of cookies that Tim's daughter sent her made her decide to keep her baby!"

Homeland Security Report equates 'abortion opponents' with white supremacists

.- According to a Homeland Security Report distributed to law enforcement organizations, abortion opponents are as great a threat to national security in the immediate future as white supremacists.

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff's departments across the country on April 7 under the headline, "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment." The report is unclassified, but is accompanied by a warning that says it “contains information that may be exempt from public release under the Freedom of Information Act.”

The report was prepared by the Extremism and Radicalization Branch of the Department of Homeland Security and claims it was “coordinated with the FBI.”

“Rightwing extremists,” the document says, “have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters, and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning.”

Nevertheless, according to the report, the combination of a prolonged economic downturn, the election of the first African American President and the return of many veterans with "combat skills" could create an environment similar to the early 90's, which lead to the Oklahoma City bombing.

The report describes "Rightwing extremism" broadly as “those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

President Obama’s Health Secretary Nominee Sebelius Hides Abortion Link in Senate Answers

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- President Barack Obama’s nominee for Health Secretary is coming under criticism for apparently deceiving members of a Senate committee about her close relationship with an abortion practitioner. Sebelius received nearly three times more money from late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller than she disclosed.

Yesterday, the Senate Finance Committee published written answers Sebelius submitted during her examination for confirmation as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

In response to a question from pro-life Sen. Jon Kyl, an Arizona Republican, Sebelius stated that she received $12,450 from Tiller during her campaign for Insurance Commissioner.

However, contribution and expenditure reports on file with the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission show the figure to be closer to $38,450 -- a discrepancy of $26,000. Records also show that some of that money was used for her 2002 campaign for governor.

'HELL ON EARTH'- German Bishop Links Nazi Crimes to Atheism

In an Easter sermon that has drawn widespread criticism, the Catholic bishop of Augsburg has linked the crimes committed under Nazi and Communist regimes to atheism. Atheist groups have reacted with fury and accuse the cleric of rewriting history.

A Catholic German bishop has come under fire for his remarks condemning atheists. In a sermon given on Easter Sunday, the bishop of Augsburg, Walter Mixa, warned of rising atheism in Germany. "Wherever God is denied or fought against, there people and their dignity will soon be denied and held in disregard," he said in the sermon. He also said that "a society without God is hell on earth" and quoted the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky: "If God does not exist, everything is permitted."

Most controversially, he linked the Nazi and Communist crimes to atheism. "In the last century, the godless regimes of Nazism and Communism, with their penal camps, their secret police and their mass murder, proved in a terrible way the inhumanity of atheism in practice." Christians and the Church were always the subject of "special persecution" under these systems, he said. . .

Irish Protestors Shut Down Speech by "Involuntary Euthanasia" Activist

CORK, Ireland April 17, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - When a British professor of medical ethics was slated to speak at Cork University Hospital (CUH) in Ireland advocating legalising euthanasia, including "involuntary euthanasia," he did not expect to be met with an angry group of Irish patriots determined to see him off in the name of their nation's constitution.

Professor Len Doyal, emeritus professor of medical ethics at Queen Mary, University of London, is a euthanasia advocate and has said that "involuntary euthanasia" should be permitted. He has advocated changing British law to allow doctors in some cases to end patients' lives "swiftly, humanely and without guilt," even if they have not given consent. However, Irish law currently defines the taking of another person's life without their consent as "murder," as do most, if not all, other jurisdictions in the world.

Doyal was scheduled to speak at the hospital at the invitation of the CUH Ethics Forum, but the lecture was pre-empted when angry protesters filled the room and charged him with attempting to introduce Nazi-style eugenics and to undermine Irish law and constitutional protections. The protest occurred only after numerous complaints to the hospital were ignored.

The lecture hall was filled with protesters who shouted down Doyal until the lecture was called off. A number of protesters, including priests and students from the pro-life action group Youth Defense, accused Doyal of advocating death for helpless ill, elderly and disabled people.

One man, Kieran O'Riordan, approached Doyal on the platform and said that he is currently caring for his wife who has terminal cancer. He held a copy of the constitution of the Republic of Ireland, the preamble of which protects the right to life, and denounced Doyal's speech as a criminal offense and against the law.

Fr. Paul Kramer, a Catholic priest and author, confronted Doyal, shouting, "Nazi criminal! Get out of our country! Nazi eugenicist! Get out of our country!" He turned to the crowd of about 200 and announced, "We say no to Nazi eugenics." The crowd chanted "Out! Out! Out!"

At that point, Professor Doyal was escorted from the room and the lecture was cancelled. . .

Letter Reveals another $200,000 Donation from Tiller for Sebelius

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 16, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A second financial revelation has cast further doubt on Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' representation to the Senate Finance Committee of the nature of her relationship with late-term abortionist George Tiller.

Sebelius is President Obama's nominee for the secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS). She is currently seeking Senate confirmation.

After Sebelius was recently found to have reported only a fraction of Tiller's $38,450 in donations to her insurance commissioner campaign, Operation Rescue yesterday released a copy of a 2002 letter from Tiller stating that he contributed $200,000 to his political action committee (PAC) to assist Sebelius' gubernatorial reelection. . .

Chuck Colson: Survival of the Fittest - The Abortion Movement Shows Its True Colors

The story is heartbreaking. A woman showed up at an abortion clinic “in flip-flops and in tears,” having walked for an hour to have her fourth child aborted after her boyfriend lost his job. “‘This was a desired pregnancy—she’d been getting prenatal care—but they re-evaluated expenses and decided not to continue,’ said Dr. Pratima Grupta,” in the Associated Press report.

Yes, it’s a heartbreaking story. But columnist Bonnie Erbe sees it quite differently. “In the long run,” she asks, “can we agree that this unwed couple’s decision not to bring a fourth child into the world when they are having trouble feeding themselves and three children is no tragedy?”

After a brief analysis of the expenses of raising a child, Erbe then reiterates that their “fact-based, rational decision” is “no tragedy: it’s a good decision.” In fact, she believes, we’d all be better off if we could recapture the national mood we had just after Roe v. Wade, when abortion “was not something women whined about publicly on the scale many seem to now.” Unbelievable! It’s as if abortion is a good thing. . .
