  • Anti-abortion climate 'will deter new generation of doctors' (UK)

    The Guardian ^ | April 1, 2012 | Ben Quinn and Sarah Boseley
    A new generation of doctors will be put off from becoming involved in abortion services by high-profile protest campaigns and a political "witch-hunt", providers fear. The current climate is already causing anxiety among doctors who are concerned that their practice will be called into question, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) said, as activists behind a new campaign to demonstrate outside abortion clinics were joined at one protest in London by a Catholic bishop. The warning comes as the BPAS and pro-choice campaigners say they feel "under siege" after the government ordered an unannounced inspection of more than 250 clinics...

    Originally published in the August 1999 issue of AFA Journal. In 1973 the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A woman's choice? Half of those who have died in their mothers' wombs have been women. They didn't have a choice. It is called abortion. Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now. First it was in dingy, dirty theaters. Then, convenience stores. Then, grocery stores. Then on television.

    The actor, who made Bo Duke a household name in the 1980's and stars in the just-released "October Baby," discusses anti-Christian bigotry, Johnny Cash, Bill Maher and why he was fired from a directing job. October Baby, a movie with a miniscule marketing budget and controversial (at least in Hollywood) for its pro-life message surprised the industry with a $4,300 per-screen opening last weekend at 390 theaters. The movie stars former Dukes of Hazzard heartthrob and practicing Christian John Schneider, who also stars in another film with a similar theme called Doonby, set for a summer release.

And we think the court will rule that way," Biden told CBS News in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on "Face the Nation." **SNIP** Biden, who has assumed the role of the Obama campaign's attack dog,

    When Chief Justice Roberts asked if the defenders of Obamacare expected SCOTUS to review all 2,700 pages of this overreaching law, he posed a question that should have been asked 100 years ago during countless other deliberations. It made no more sense to the Court than it did to Charlie Rangel – or any well-intentioned lawmaker or bureaucrat. Tea Partiers formed committees to take on 20 pages each among them. It wasn’t pretty! Ms. Nancy still claims her Congress took the Constitution into consideration. Lesson 1: Always listen to your local Tea Partier! Lawmakers have their overpaid fun for a...

    Jimmy Carter was on Laura Ingraham’s nationally-syndicated radio show yesterday. The former president’s remarks on abortion must have given the Democrat Party establishment heartburn. “I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions,” said Carter, the former Nobel Peace Prize winner. “That was one of the problems I had when I was president – having to uphold Roe v. Wade.” Carter told Ingraham that he actually has signed a public letter urging fellow Democrats attending the party’s national convention this upcoming September to adopt a new position on abortion – that it be limited “only to women whose...

    Journal of Medical Ethics (yes, believe it or not) ^ | February 23, 2012 | Alberto Giubilini, Francesca Minerva
    Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus' health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

    Even before the Supreme Court issues its ruling this June, we have learned a great deal from this process. The long history of Obamacare, hopefully already entering its final months, has been as instructive to the student as it has been devastating on the economy. These are certainly not the only lessons we have learned from it, but here are a few worth remembering. LEGISLATION HAS CONSEQUENCES. Even though Obamacare was frontloaded on taxes and backloaded on benefits – it wouldn’t provide a single dollar of real benefits for four years – its effect on the economy was instantaneous. Within...

  • Liberals Face Rude Awakening As Obamacare Case Forces Them To Acknowledge Conservative Arguments

    After three days of oral arguments at the Supreme Court on Obamcare, liberals seem genuinely stunned that Obamacare has a good chance of going down in flames. They never saw it coming. Consider this exchange between CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and anchor Wolf Blitzer on the first day of the argument which focused on the individual mandate, provision of Obamacare which forces all Americans to purchase medical insurance or procure it via their employers: TOOBIN: This was a train wreck for the Obama administration. This law looks like it's gonna be struck down. Justice Kennedy, the swing vote, was...

    The Financial Times ^ | March 29, 2012 | By James Politi
    When Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law two years ago, the long-held dream of the American left to move towards some form of universal healthcare coverage became reality. But the hearings this week on the constitutionality of its key provision – the requirement for individuals to purchase coverage or pay a penalty – have led many Democrats to fear they are in for a crushing disappointment. The Supreme Court will not rule on the validity of the law until June. But the oral arguments exposed a willingness by some justices on the court to consider striking down...

    The Atlantic ^ | March 29, 2012 | by Clive Crook
    The best reason to rule Obamacare constitutional--the one that makes the answer seem obvious--is a matter of common sense. But that's a case counsel isn't allowed to make. The common-sense case goes like this. Contrary to what Justice Kennedy said this week, no important principle is at stake in this decision. For all practical purposes, the economic power of the federal government is no longer constitutionally constrained. Am I forgetting the Broccoli Question? If the government can force you to buy health insurance, what can't it force you to buy? The common-sense answer to this, as we've just seen, is...

    WASHINGTON, March 29, 2012 ( - In an unusually candid video addressed to Planned Parenthood, President Obama assured the billion-dollar abortion organization of his continued support and touted his record blocking efforts to defund the group by pro-life “professional politicians.” “For you and for most Americans, protecting women’s health is a mission that stands above politics,” said the president in a video posted to Youtube by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Yet in the past year you’ve had politicians who want to deny millions of women the care they rely on, and inject themselves into decisions that are best made...

    Now that three days and six sessions of Supreme Court oral argument on ObamaCare have finished, what conclusions can we reach about how the decision will go? Earlier today I spoke with Professor Randy Barnett of Georgetown University Law Center, who represented the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) in the court challenge to the PPACA, and who attended all six sessions as an observer on their behalf. We spoke about the dangers of making assumptions from oral arguments, the performance of Solicitor General Donald Verilli, and the impact of government regulation on smaller businesses versus larger competitors:

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The survival of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul rests with a Supreme Court seemingly split over ideology and, more particularly, in the hands of two Republican-appointed justices. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy put tough questions to administration lawyers defending the health care law during three days of arguments that suggested they have strong reservations about the individual insurance requirement at the heart of the overhaul and, indeed, whether the rest of the massive law can survive if that linchpin fails.But Roberts and Kennedy also asked enough pointed questions of the law's challengers to...

    A handful of Senate Democrats sought to assure doubtful liberals that the Supreme Court justices aren’t ready to strike down their crowning achievement, standing before cameras and mics Wednesday in front of the court. One warned that doing so would ruin the court’s credibility. “This court would not only have to stretch, it would have to abandon and completely overrule a lot of modern precedent, which would do grave damage to this court, in its credibility and power,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D), a former attorney general of Connecticut. “The court commands no armies, it has no money; it depends...

    The Prophet Jonah was sent to Nineveh. St. Paul was sent to Athens, Macedonia, Rome. And now Tim Tebow has been sent to New York City. There was a moment last week when it looked as if the trade shipping Tebow from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets might somehow fall through - that Tebow might end up a Jacksonville Jaguar instead, with a guaranteed starting job, a heavily evangelical fan base, and none of the insanity involved in eclipsing Jeremy Lin as the most famous Christian athlete in Babylon-upon-the-Hudson. O ye of little faith. Did you think...
