    In a speech yesterday about working families--while trying to explain why he thinks too many women face "being reprimanded or fired for taking too many bathroom breaks when you're pregnant"--President Obama let it slip that he knows unborn babies have feet that kick. "Too many women face unnecessary difficulties on the job, like the difficulty of being paid less than a man for doing the same work," said Obama. "That’s a difficulty. Or being reprimanded or fired for taking too many bathroom breaks when you’re pregnant. Clearly that’s a man making that decision because they don’t have five pounds of...
  • Mozambique legalizes abortion-on-demand

    The long struggle to keep abortion out of the south African country of Mozambique has failed. President Armando Guebuza on Thursday "quietly signed into law," in the words of Agence France-Presse, a revision to the penal code that legalizes abortion-on-demand in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, or up to 16 weeks in the case of rape. Mozambique’s Parliament, just as quietly, approved the legislation to legalize abortion in July. The provision allowing abortion if a pregnancy threatens the life or health of the mother, and if a fetal abnormality is diagnosed, is also maintained. Policymakers within the Mozambique Health...

    It was disturbing enough that a young mother filmed her abortion for the world to see. But what she said a month and a half later was even more disturbing. Sickening would be a better word. As reported by the New York Daily News, “Emily Letts, 25, a counselor for the Cherry Hill Women's Center decided she wanted to share a positive message when she became pregnant and had an abortion in November.” A “positive message” about terminating a precious little life? According to Emily, “I know there are women who feel great remorse. I have seen the tears. Grieving...

    The very first bit of anti-libertarian humor I ever posted was this clever video about the anarcho-capitalist paradise of Somalia.I then shared two cartoons, one on libertarian ice fishing and the other showinglibertarian lifeguards.That was followed by a very funny list of the 24 types of libertarians.But I haven’t shared anything making fun of people like me since this “think I do” montage last year.Thanks to Buzzfeed, however, we now have something new for our collection. They came up with “23 Libertarian Problems” and here are two of my favorites from the list.
  • Feminists Love Abortion-on-Demand, Hate Sarah Palin

    The New Media Journal ^ | September 29, 2008 | Joan Swirsky
    Why are the retro-feminists in the leftwing media, the National Organization of Women, and the abortion lobby, among other hysterics, militating so violently against Sarah Palin? It’s because they value abortion-on-demand over every other subject on earth. This “value” started in the late 1950s – before abortion became de rigueur – when the Food and Drug Administration approved the birth-control pill developed by Dr. John Rock and two collaborators. For the first time in human history, women had a measure of control over their fertility, which gave them a greater chance to pursue economic independence and escape bad marriages. But...

    Make no mistake about it - when the nation's largest pro-life group endorsed Fred Thompson on Tuesday its goal was to shake up the Republican contest for the presidency. The National Right to Life's endorsement is the gold standard coveted by those Republicans seeking the White House because it bestows a legitimacy and authenticity on the candidate who receives it as the standard-bearer for those who want to end abortion on demand. The Thompson endorsement not only signals how the organization representing 3,000 pro-life groups has grown up, but it shows just how close the country is to seeing Roe...

    British Parliamentarians to Push for End to Current Limited Abortion Restrictions Want to allow nurses and midwives to kill unborn children By Hilary White LONDON, September 4, 2007 ( - A group of pro-abortion British MP's from all parties in government will be launching a campaign to sweep away the last formal restrictions on abortion and make it available on demand. They want to allow nurses and midwives to kill unborn children and recommend increasing the number of facilities allowed to abort babies in the first trimester of pregnancy. The Independent reports that the move is planned by a cross-party...

    International Planned Parenthood Federation Launches New Abortion Campaign in Europe Uses strongly anti-religious language By Maciej Golubiewski BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, August 31, 2007 ( - Using strongly anti-religious language, the European branch of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has recently issued a document entitled "Why We Need to Talk about Abortion" calling for the legalization of abortion in the European Union (EU).  While acknowledging that the member states retain "ultimate responsibility" for abortion legislation, the IPPF-Europe urges the EU Commission and the European Parliamentarians to act "despite this mandate" to "drive the issues forward" and "keep them high on the...

    Giuliani has a tough road ahead in South Carolina, which is to host the first Southern primaries in 2008. His moderate positions on gun control and support for abortion rights do not sit well with the state's Christian conservatives, who accounted for a third of the 2000 GOP primary vote. Those voters swung heavily to President Bush that year, giving him a 2-1 ratio margin over Arizona Sen. John McCain, who was viewed as soft on abortion. On Wednesday, Giuliani reiterated his own position. "I'd advise my daughter or anyone else not to have an abortion," Giuliani said. "I'd like...

    Why I Will Not Vote for Any Republican by John Lewis (October 30, 2006) In the upcoming election, I will not vote for any Republican. My reasons are based on those offered by philosopher Leonard Peikoff, and I agree with him completely. A straight Democratic vote in this election is the only rational choice I can make. I would not, however, vote Republican today even if the issue of government religion was not relevant. In every area of domestic and foreign policy, the conservatives controlling the Republican Party have expropriated the central tenets of the left, while claiming to be...

    After decades of excoriating evangelical Christians as bigoted morons, foaming-at-the-mouth fanatics and vile hypocrites -- both sexually-obsessed and sexually-repressed (part Elmer Gantry, part Elmer Fudd) -- the media has hit on a new tactic. The cover story ("America's God Complex - Like George W. Bush, The Religious Right Is At The Crossroads") in the November 13th Newsweek explains that evangelicals aren't really all that bad - it's just that the poor fools have been duped by the Republican Party, their energies (which should be devoted to more worthwhile endeavors) diverted to sordid politics. But there's hope that the Bible Belt...

    American Spectator ^ | August 17 2006 | Doug Bandow
    For more than three decades abortion has been primarily a legal fight centered on the Supreme Court's idiosyncratic interpretation of the Constitution. Political action has invariably been shaped by the prospect of judicial review. That process continues today, with South Dakota's recent approval of a blanket ban in response to the changed membership of the Court. The pro-life lobby has been forthright in its position: abortion is wrong and should be banned. The other side, however, often has obscured its views. Those leading the fight against abortion regulation like to style themselves as pro-choice, but many of them really are...

    Voters will have the final say on South Dakota's tough new law that bans almost all abortions. Secretary of State Chris Nelson said Monday that the law's opponents had collected enough signatures to put a question on the November 7 ballot asking voters if the law should go into effect as planned or be dumped. The state's abortion law, among the strictest in the nation, bans the procedure in all cases except when necessary to save a woman's life, with no exceptions for rape or incest. Supporters hoped it would prompt a court challenge that would give the US Supreme...

    PIERRE, S.D., Feb. 22 — Setting up South Dakota to become the first state in 14 years to start a direct legal attack on Roe v. Wade, lawmakers voted on Wednesday to outlaw nearly all abortions. Across the country, abortion rights advocates reacted with outrage and dismay. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which runs the sole abortion clinic in South Dakota, said it was bracing to fight the move in court immediately, if the governor signs it. "This represents a monumental step backward for personal privacy for women," Nancy Keenan, president of Naral Pro-Choice America, said. Some opponents of...
  • "Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation" : by President Ronald Reagan, 1983

    First presented in 1983. The 10th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade is a good time for us to pause and reflect. Our nationwide policy of abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy was neither voted for by our people nor enacted by our legislators-- not a single state had such unrestricted abortion before the Supreme Court decreed it to be national policy in 1973. But the consequences of this judicial decision are now obvious: since 1973, more than 15 million unborn children have had their lives snuffed out by legalized abortions. That is over ten...

    MORE DEATHS CAUSED BY GOVERNMENT? DELIBERATE DECISIONS By: Albert V. Burns As a result of my previous column dealing with the horrendous statistics of human lives taken by governments run amok, I have received a several messages pointing out the fact that I had omitted one of the most appalling facts of all, that is, the forty three million plus (43,000,000+) babies that have been aborted in the United States since 1973. That was the year when our illustrious Supreme Court discovered a previously unknown part of our Constitution, i.e., the right of privacy which meant that women now had...
