    The nation’s oldest abortion rights advocacy group attacked Gov. Scott Walker and his presidential aspirations on June 18, 2015 with a TV ad called "Crazy Ideas." In it, NARAL Pro-Choice America, formerly the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, made a claim about comments Walker made about abortion and transvaginal ultrasounds. Walker, according to the group, "said that forcing women facing abortion to get invasive ultrasounds was 'just a cool thing.' " Let’s see if that’s what he said.

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said this week that he was prepared to sign a measure banning abortion at 20 weeks without an exception for rape or incest because it’s only “in the initial months” that victims are “most concerned” about access to care. Walker, who is expected to announce his run for president at the end of the month, said that such an exception didn’t matter and that he would sign the bill regardless. “I mean, I think for most people who are concerned about that, it’s in the initial months where they’re most concerned about it,” Walker said. “In...

    Politico reported Wednesday on a controversial statement made by Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in a piece entitled “Scott Walker on mandatory ultrasounds: ‘It’s just a cool thing out there.'” The only problem? Walker never said that. In an interview with radio host Dana Loesch, Walker defended a law he signed that required an ultrasound be performed before an abortion. But the context makes clear that ultrasounds were a “cool thing,” not mandatory ultrasounds before an abortions. In particular, he made his statement during a discussion of people who keep ultrasounds of their own children:

"Stabilization of carbon dioxide emissions at current rates will require approximately 300 gigawatts of new non-carbon-dioxide-emitting power production capacity annually - approximately one new nuclear power plant (or equivalent) per day," Garrett says.

    snip..."These little measures that keep slipping through, they cumulatively have a very detrimental effect to safe, legal and timely abortions," said Heather Busby, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Texas. "They've done plenty of damage at this point." Tension over new abortion laws erupted in in June 2013 when Republicans weathered a 13-hour filibuster by Davis, who went on to lose badly to Abbott in the governor's race. New laws required abortion clinics to meet hospital-level operating standards and mandated that doctors who perform abortions obtain hospital admitting privileges. Clinics unable to make costly upgrades closed and women in rural swaths...

    A new study seems to confirm what we'll call the “Kit Harington Effect," which holds that a man's hunkiness may in fact prove an obstacle to his career. Research from the University of Maryland suggests that good-looking men sometimes have difficulty getting jobs in competitive environments, like sales, because they are subconsciously perceived as a threat to those in charge of hiring. Considering previous research has suggested that handsome men make more money, are perceived as more competent (attractive women, on the other hand, are often seen as less competent), and are more successful in closing big deals, that threat...

Three years before the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus the Roman, an unknown author wrote a letter of warning and encouragement to the Hebrew believers in that city. In a time of impending national crisis, this author reminded these believers that their only safety was in individual orientation to and pursuit of the plan of God. In Hebrews 12, he compares the Christian life to a race and Christians to athletes who, if they want to experience the ecstasy of victory, will have to endure the agony of training for and running...

Patel comes from a family of Hindu immigrants from India. In the mostly Irish-Catholic town of South Bend, they kept to themselves. Patel worked...

She also said if this “curse” returned (i.e. finding out she’s pregnant with a boy) she would do it again. This comes after she proudly states she has a healthy 1-year-old girl, who will “be just as strong and driven as her mother.” Nothing wrong with having girls, but sex-selective abortion–or any abortion–is especially wrong.

  • End Obamacare, and people could die. That’s okay.

    Washington Post ^ | January 23, 2015 | By Michael R. Strain
    Say conservatives have their way with Obamacare, and the Supreme Court deals it a death blow or a Republican president repeals it in 2017. Some people who got health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act may lose it. In which case, liberals like to say, some of Obamacare’s beneficiaries may die. Columnist Jonathan Chait wrote recently that those who may die are victims of ideology — “collateral damage” incurred in conservatives’ pursuit “of a larger goal.” If these are the stakes, many liberals argue, then ending Obamacare is immoral. Except, it’s not. In a world of scarce...
  • Abortion clinics should be inspected annually (IL)

    The Southern ^ | 1/23/15 | Robert Gilligan
    ... Among the more startling revelations in the report is that 54 percent of abortion facilities are not licensed by the state of Illinois. They have never received a health and safety inspection. The state Department of Public Health has no authority over unlicensed abortion facilities even if they perform surgical abortions. The remaining 46 percent of facilities that are licensed by the state of Illinois went nine to 13 years without an inspection between 2000-2014. It is hard to imagine how lawmakers can turn a blind eye to inspecting abortion facilities every year when lawmakers have recognized the need...

    It started when 20 braver than brave, elementary-school aged girls sent skyward a yellow balloon, handmade, 75-foot-long rosary from Chicago’s Michigan Avenue bridge claiming the Magnificent Mile for Mary. The school girls had to carry their rosary, cross-first, through downtown Chicago. That was in August of 2011. “The reaction…. “Homeless people gave high fives. Street preachers burst into the singing of Gospel songs. Semi-truck drivers shook the streets sounding their truck horns in approval. (Canada Free Press, August 15, 2011). “A passerby tweeted, ‘A balloon rosary in the air. My faith confirmed:)’

    Break Point ^ | 01/14/2015 | Eric Metaxas
    I’m not a scientist, and I don’t play one on TV. But I can examine scientific evidence and ask the question, “How is life possible?” This past Christmas, the Wall Street Journal ran an essay of mine entitled “Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God.” The content will be familiar to those who have read my latest book, “Miracles,” or heard me talk about it here at BreakPoint. I noted that the initial euphoria over the possibility that there were a septillion -- that’s one followed by 24 zeros -- planets capable of supporting life in the universe was followed...

    By now the cast of thousands all know their well-worn roles. And so does the national audience, which has seen this pageant performed again and again. The whole production has become as familiar as an old standard in the repertory of an opera company. Only the actors may change from time to time, though some seem to hang on forever, reciting the same old lines and practicing the same old demagoguery. Only this isn't an opera. It's more of an outdoor drama re-enacted in different settings across the country -- from little Ferguson, Missouri, to metropolitan New York, and reported...
