    I’ve been there. I was 17, drugged and raped. When I learned I was pregnant, my family, counselors, and doctors took control. They intended the best. They wanted to help me. And even though there are literally no studies showing any benefit from abortion, they had total confidence in the social myth that abortion is the best option, even the only option, in cases of sexual assault. Even many pro-lifers approve of abortions in cases of rape. So surely it must be the best choice, right? Not in my case. It just added more layers of trauma, self-doubt, grief and...

    Laura Maikata’s baby boy was born at a gestational age of 23 weeks and weighed 600 grams at birth. His chances of survival were slim. His parents named Jonathan Amos, which means “God’s gift and carried by God.” Writing about her experience on her blog, Jonathan’s mother says this about getting the news tat doctors wanted to perform a C-section to remove the baby: I felt my skin prickle a bit, then I went white.

She was only 11-years-old at the time but recently told the hosts of This Morning about the life-changing experience. She said, “Soon after I began noticing changes in my body. I eventually did a pregnancy test and it came up I was pregnant. I was too scared to tell my mum, so I told my aunt and then ran away. Mum was furious but she calmed down eventually.” However, Middleton didn’t tell anyone about the rape; instead, she said the pregnancy was a result of...

    Members of Congress take the same oath and thus collectively have the same authority to interpret the Constitution. All Congress needs to do to express an opinion on the Constitution is for each house to vote to adopt a joint resolution on the subject. Republicans should seriously consider passing a resolution stating that the judicial branch has no authority to tell the states how they can define marriage.

    Where to begin to expose the over-the-top dishonesty of abortion advocate Dr. David Grimes’ piece on abortion and breast cancer posted on Feb. 26 in the Huffington Post Blog (“Abortion and Breast Cancer: How Abortion Foes Got it Wrong“)? Not surprisingly Grimes begins by announcing dismissively that the abortion-breast cancer connection (ABC link) “was debunked long ago.” In truth, it is the denial that has been repeatedly debunked. Ironically, one of the key studies Grimes relies on as “a landmark prospective study of women in Denmark” to “prove” the ABC link is a myth is actually the largest and most...

I often vote for "third party" candidates because the two 19th Century major parties are out of touch with reality. For example, I voted for Ross Perot in 1992 and Ralph Nader in 2000.

    I'm attempting to understand why some of the descendants of the people Christopher Columbus called "Indians" say they are ashamed to be called "redskins". The only explanation I can think of is they are ashamed that they are not white or perhaps they are simply ashamed of their heritage. In the 1950's many black Americans were ashamed of their color. They tried to bleach their skin and straighten their hair to look more like white people. In the early sixties someone discovered a statement abolitionist John Sweat Rock had made a century earlier. Rock said, "black is beautiful". Many black...

    The white hypocrites who complain about the term "redskins" use the term "native American" which when used in the way they are using it isn't much better than the other n-word. The word "redskins" is a physically descriptive term that doesn't have inherently negative characteristics. The word is one of the English translations of the Ottawa term "Oklahoma". If we consider the characteristics of the people the term "redskins" was first applied to, it's a positive term. The word "native" has two different uses. In general use the term "native " followed by a geographic region is used to indicate...

    The best way to resolve the situation in Crimea in the event the residents want to separate from the Ukraine would be for Russia to purchase the territory. Russia could then allow the Crimeans to decide what status they wanted such as becoming an independent state or joining the other ethnic Russians in the Russian Federation. I was going to include this suggestion in a post dealing with the situation in general but decided the proposal would be more likely to be noticed if suggested in a separate post. I believe the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo which ended the war...

    After little sleep and a heavy patient load, LeRoy Carhart sent another abortion patient to the hospital yesterday (March 4, 2014) for treatment of apparently life-threatening complications. An ambulance arrived at about 4:00 p.m. in response for a call for emergency assistance. It transported a female patient to a local hospital. Carhart was not seen with his patient during the incident. Due to a snowstorm, Carhart was unable to see women scheduled for multi-day late-term abortions as usual on Sunday. Carhart was seen by witnesses at the Germantown Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic between 5:00 and 11:00 p.m. on Monday...

    I had a dream last night in which Barack Obama was wearing a helmet and carrying a lance like the fictional character Don Quixote who had a reputation for attacking make believe foes. The only other clothing Obama had on was swimming trunks. He was riding a horse that had a remarkable resemblance to John Kerry As he moved his lance up and down he was chanting: "we must stop global warming." He continued to chant as the reading on the thermometer dropped below freezing and he began turning blue. He continued chanting "we must stop global warming" as the...

    Those who watch the Oscars need to understand the song that receives the Oscar for best song may not deserve the honor. The Motion Picture Academy arbitrarily rescinded the nomination of the song "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the best song category. According to a review "ALONE YET NOT ALONE tells the inspiring story of Barbara and Regina Leininger and their journey of faith and survival during the French & Indian war in 1755. Captured by the Allegheny Indians in a raid on their home and transported over 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by...

    Three months after making an open records request for a 911 call originating from LeRoy Carhart’s Germantown Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic on November 26, 2013, Operation Rescue has finally received a 911 recording from the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service indicating that the patient was hemorrhaging from complications to a late-term abortion. In addition to taking weeks beyond the statutory deadlines to comply with Operation Rescue’s open record request, the recording was heavily redacted, omitting information that has previously been obtainable by the public, indicating a policy change that actively protects the abortion clinic. “While the Maryland Public...

    The biggest impediment to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, dream of a society in which color is not considered important is the continued used of the extremely racist term "African-American". The term implies the descendants of slaves are a separate race whose members belong in Africa rather than the United States even though many have ancestors who were living in North America long before the American Revolution. The term "African American" arbitrarily segregates people by skin color. The term treats people with dark complexions as if they only had African ancestors even if more of their ancestors came from somewhere...

    A pro-life pregnancy center has secured another victory in an ongoing fight against an intrusive, pro-abortion witch hunt carried out by New York State, whose governor recently declared that pro-life citizens “have no place in the state of New York.” Our client, The Evergreen Association, Inc., (Evergreen), operates many crisis pregnancy centers in New York and has been very effective in combating abortions in New York City for over 27 years. Last year, Attorney General Schneiderman, who has close ties to pro-abortion organizations such as NARAL, issued a subpoena to Evergreen demanding numerous documents concerning Evergreen’s internal affairs, corporate structure,...

    The UK may soon tighten its health care rationing to prevent new medicines from getting to the elderly. From the Telegraph story: “New drugs would only be licensed for the NHS [National Health Service] if they help those judged to be a benefit to wider society under proposals from the health watchdog. Pharmaceutical firms on Thursday night warned that the move could lead to new medicines being denied to the elderly. “A senior professor also said that the plans could threaten the well-being of older people and were ‘deeply suspect’, while charities questioned the ethics of the policy. The National...
