    Despite the fact that four women in California have died from infections related to the use of mifepristone also known as RU 486, leading advocates of abortion are denouncing calls to take the potentially fatal drug off the market. Their argument… “It’s still safer than having a baby.” Read More... Craig DeLuz Visit The Home of Uncommon Sense...

    2 sides mark anniversary of Roe v. Wade with marches in S.F. Thousands of protesters on both sides of the abortion issue clashed in San Francisco in rival demonstrations Saturday, the 32nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. In dueling marches, about 6,000 antiabortion activists in the Walk for Life West Coast were jeered and harangued by about 3,000 advocates for abortion rights, some waving wire hangers. Walk for Life organizers Dolores Meehan and Eva Muntean said they knew holding an antiabortion rally in the liberal bastion of San Francisco would certainly spark outrage....

    Yeni is a medical assistant and receptionist at the Clínica Médica para la Mujer de Hoy, an abortion clinic in Chula Vista. She's taking care of a customer, a very thin young Mexican, 28 years old, and of disheveled appearance. He's come to get information. He smiles nervously all the while. Yeni deals with him coldly. In Spanish, she greets him, "Hi, good afternoon." Customer: "Is this where you do abortions?" Yeni: "Yes." Customer: "How much does it come out to? She's got about two-and-a half months." Yeni: "If it hasn't been over three months, the cost is $300....
  • Fetal homicide bill sparks abortion debate

    HELENA (AP) _ A bill that would criminalize killing or injuring a fetus sparked a fierce debate over abortion at a legislative hearing Tuesday, despite assertions by its sponsor that it had nothing to do with terminating a pregnancy. Rep. Penny Morgan, R-Billings, said her bill was meant to address violence against pregnant women and get justice for the unborn children harmed or killed in the process, such as in the Laci Peterson case in California. ``This is a bigger problem than people have ever realized,'' she told the House Judiciary Committee. Opponents called her House Bill 231 a thinly...

    You may have heard the story of the time four decades ago when President Lyndon Johnson invited reporters to his ranch for dinner. Since his press secretary Bill Moyers had seminary training, LBJ asked him to say grace—and when the designated prayer spoke softly, requested that he speak up. Mr. Moyers replied, "I wasn't talking to you, Mr. President." The focal point of that anecdote for some is LBJ's arrogance—but the late president was right. Public prayer, whether in church or at the dinner table, has two audiences, one on earth and one in heaven. Prayer tells God what He...

    Ten years after the bloody Brookline clinic attacks, one doctor explains why she still performs abortions.Ten years ago this month, John Salvi sprayed bullets into two Brookline abortion clinics, killing two people and wounding five. Since then, the number of doctors willing to perform abortions has dwindled, increasing the workload for those remaining. One local obstetrician and gynecologist, whose clinic asked that she withhold her name for safety reasons, now performs as many as 10 abortions a day, twice a week. One morning years ago, when I was working as a resident, a nurse brought me in to talk to...

    For Republicans, Social Security has been the untouchable third rail, at least until President Bush promised reformation by transformation. For Democrats, the third rail has been abortion - no exceptions, no restrictions, no compromise. Now some Democrats sound as if they might be willing to alter their fundamentalist position on abortion in order to stop their electoral hemorrhaging and start winning elections again. Could they be serious? In a Dec. 23 New York Times story headlined "Democrats Weigh De-emphasizing Abortion as an Issue," several prominent Democrats suggest their party should at least open its doors to abortion opponents and make...

    The following quote from Patrick Gray, in 'Aborton Rhetoric & Common Sense," appeared in 'Touchtstone,' Apr. 2004 "...anyone who defends the practice of abortion must posit a state of limbo, a literal no-man's land somewhere between life and death, between human and nonhuman, inhabited exclusively by embryos and fetuses." Superstition is the rejection of common sense and the corruption of reality. It's belief in the whimsy, and wishful thinking. It's the redescription of reality in order that its' adherents can believe in their own fanciful conceits. Because adherents of abortion must redescribe and even deny reality in order to...

    A Small Success at the Washington Post! Last week the Washington Post ran a three-part series on Maternal Homicide and Domestic Violence that was an example of writing (it didn’t qualify as “journalism”) that appealed more to the emotions than the intellect. But this time around, we were ready. Thanks to a cooperative effort among several groups, we hit a home run! On Saturday, the Post ran two excellent letters to the editor – see below. And then on Sunday, the WP Ombudsman Michael Getler devoted one-third of his weekly column to a critique of the series – again, see...

    Abortion Quotes from Pro-Choice Sources From "Abortion at Work: Ideology and Practice in a Feminist Clinic" by Wendy Simonds. New Brunswick: Rutgers University Press, 1996 included a chapter on how to repel abortion protestors or "antis"): Quotes from clinic employees: "You're going from dealing with people to dealing with what most people here at the Center consider a real hurdle, to do sterile room, because you have to deal with the actual abortion tissue. And for some people, that's really hard. They can be abstractly in favor of abortion rights, but they sure don't want to see what an eighteen-week...

    Recent Poll Reveals Most Americans Think Abortion Hurts Women CHICAGO, November 26, 2004 ( - A recent nationwide survey conducted by Wirthlin Worldwide has found that a majority of Americans believe that abortion is "almost always bad" for women. The findings reflect the earlier findings of an Elliot Institute poll, which found that a majority of Americans believe abortion makes women's lives worse. The poll of 1,001 Americans, conducted on behalf of Americans United for Life, found that 61 percent felt that "abortion is almost always a bad thing for a woman," whereas only 23 percent said it was almost...

    Human Events Online ^ | July 9, 2003
    There is an item on the Senate's legislative calendar of which I was recently reminded by a good friend. The bill is S. 1019, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, and was introduced by Sen. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio) on May 7, 2003. In his introduction of the bill, Sen. DeWine noted, "In about half of the States today, 26, if you commit a crime of violence against a pregnant woman and her unborn baby dies, you can be punished for the violence against both the mother and the unborn child. But, tragically, if you commit a Federal crime of violence...

    Two People, Two Deaths Paul Weyrich Thursday, Mar. 18, 2004 Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) stated in a letter to South Dakotans that he favored acting "expeditiously" on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. In his June 12, 2003 letter, Daschle stated: "I agree with the Republican Leader that Congress should consider this issue expeditiously." The rhetoric of the Senate Minority Leader fails to match the record. The Unborn Victims of Violence failed to reach the Senate floor quickly. After all, Tom Daschle has a voting record slanted in favor of legalized abortion, having voted for the Harkin (D-Iowa)...

"If this is murder, well, then any time a late-term fetus is aborted, they could call it murder," Morris County NOW President Mavra Stark said on Saturday. Prosecutors in California announced Friday their intention to charge Scott Peterson, 30, of Modesto, both with killing his wife and their...

    NewsMax ^ | April 22, 2003 | Fr. Mike Reilly's religion editor Fr. Mike Reilly argues that the Laci Peterson case poses a problem for America's abortion advocates. "[Scott] Peterson, who is to be arraigned on charges for the death of his wife, Laci, and their unborn son, was arrested Friday morning ..." reports the New York Post. We can all agree that Laci Peterson was murdered, but I thought that the unborn baby was just a fetus. How can Scott Peterson be arraigned on charges for murdering a non-person? If Lacihad brought the child to a local abortionist, he could have killed the baby - and the state...

    The National Organization for Women is backing away from comments an official made on the decision to charge Scott Peterson with two murders in the deaths of his wife and unborn child. The furor came as the parents of the murdered Modesto, Calif., woman broke their silence to say how much they missed their daughter and hoped "the person" who had killed her would be brought to justice. The controversy was touched off on the weekend when Marva Stark, president of a NOW chapter in New Jersey, said she feared the double-murder charge could strengthen efforts to enact a ban...

    In Texas, Scott couldn't be charged for the death of his son because, as one woman put it so eloquently, in Texas the child is a "no- thing" before birth. There is no way to bring a charge in civil or criminal court for the wrongful death of an unborn child who dies in Texas against his or her mother's will. HB 246, The Prenatal Protection Act is being held up in the State Affairs Committee of the Texas Legislature because the Texas Medical Association doesn't want the unborn child to be recognized as a cause for malpractice.

    NewsMax ^ | June 15, 2003 | Fr. Mike Reilly's religion editor, Fr. Mike Reilly, weighs in on the debate over new legislation to protect the unborn. Newsweek's recent cover story on fetal rights caused quite a stir among abortion supporters. A poll conducted by the magazine shows that 46 percent of Americans believe that life begins at conception, while an additional 12 percent believes that it begins at implantation. Only 11 percent believes that life begins at birth, which means that 89 percent of Americans would acknowledge that the present abortion laws allow for at least some legalization of murder. The Laci Peterson story (see: Laci Peterson Case...
