  • In praise of Clarence Thomas

    06/04/2019 7:50:51 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 2 replies ^ | June 4, 2019 | Star Parker
    Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is, once again, under attack. And, once again, the attacks are from liberals who cannot tolerate Thomas' consistent, unyielding and faithful commitment to America's founding principles. The latest concerns Thomas' 20-page opinion offered up in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, recently considered by the Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood challenged Indiana law prohibiting abortion for reasons of sex, race or non-life threatening deformity. The challenge was upheld in district court and the law overturned. However, the Supreme Court chose not to rule on the matter for procedural reasons, turning it back to...

    Alan Guttmacher, once president of Planned Parenthood, in 1969: “I would like to give our voluntary means of population control full opportunity in the next 10 to 12 years. Then, if these don’t succeed, we may have to go into some kind of coercion, not worldwide, but possibly in such places as India, Pakistan, Indonesia…” Alan Guttmacher, The American Journal of Nursing (June, 1969).

    For every 100 babies born in New York City, women had 74 abortions in 2004, according to newly released figures that reaffirm the city as the abortion capital of the country. And abortions for out-of-town women performed in the city increased from 57 to 70 out of every 1,000 between 1996 and 2004, a subtle yet noticeable trend that experts say may reflect growing hurdles against the procedure in more conservative parts of the country.The new Vital Statistics report released by the city Department of Health this month shows there were 124,100 live births, 11,700 spontaneous abortions and 91,700 induced...

    Myth that Abortions Increased Under Bush Dismantled By Unlikely Source If you remember your high school Greek mythology class, one of the most intriguing tales remains as relevant today as it was when written thousands of years ago. It is the myth of Sisyphus. Sisyphus angered one of the many Greek gods and he was condemned to push a stone up a hill for all of eternity. Beyond the physical pain and labor, an extra soul-sapping punishment was added. Each time he managed to get the rock to the top, it would roll back down the hill. Endless frustration and...

    Reasons U.S. Women Have Abortions: Quantitative and Qualitative Perspectives By Lawrence B. Finer, Lori F. Frohwirth, Lindsay A. Dauphinee, Susheela Singh and Ann M. Moore CONTEXT: Understanding women's reasons for having abortions can inform public debate and policy regarding abortion and unwanted pregnancy. Demographic changes over the last two decades highlight the need for a reassessment of why women decide to have abortions.METHODS: In 2004, a structured survey was completed by 1,209 abortion patients at 11 large providers, and in-depth interviews were conducted with 38 women at four sites. Bivariate analyses examined differences in the reasons for abortion across subgroups,...

    As a ban on a procedure that opponents call partial-birth abortion makes its way through Congress, many of the doctors who provide abortions say they remain confused about what will be banned and fear it will apply to other procedures used in the second trimester of pregnancy. The procedure at issue — what doctors now call intact dilatation and extraction, or intact D&X — involves pulling the fetus's legs and torso out of the uterus and then crushing its skull before removing it entirely. It is not known how often it is performed in the United States, but its use...
