  • Mother’s Day Is Not The Time To Justify Your Abortion

    05/12/2016 8:40:24 PM PDT · by Morgana · 8 replies ^ | May 6, 2016 | Nicole Russell recently published an article by Jenny Kutner titled “Women Who Have Had Abortions on Why They’re Proud Not to be Moms on Mother’s Day.” Kutner relates the anecdotes of four women who have had abortions. Unfortunately, the title and article are misleading, to say the least. These four women express regret, pain, and confusion about their abortions, demonstrating both the failed feminist philosophy that drives the pro-choice movement and the powerful reasons to be pro-life. In Kutner’s article, Heather, 42, describes her abortion experience this way. “I have never doubted that abortion was the right decision for me at...

    Shamelessness evidently is heritable, although it is not clear whether nature or nurture is at play in the case of Chelsea Clinton. The Hillary campaign still needs money to fight Bernie Sanders, whose position in the upcoming Western primaries threatens to embarrass her even more, and make her margin of victory at the Philadelphia convention all too visibly dependent on the Big Fix, aka superdelegates. And relying on her Wall Street fat cat donors looks even worse. Hence the need to prattle on about motherhood as a reason to support a woman who has pursued the worldly goals of money...

My father, James Williams, had been married to Theola Livingston and had four children.In giving birth to the fourth child, Theola died while in labor. This was January 1957, and my father desperately needed a wife to raise those four children and bring stability to the household while he worked the family farm. He knew my...

Dad decided on his own to never remarry. As children, my siblings and I would meet in the basement to discuss what to give my mom for her Mother's Day gift. Usually, most the duties were taken up by the same two kids, the oldest two. While the younger two children would contribute their ideas on color, size and if it was candy, what type...

    In a bizarre move, a Huffington Post blogger is wishing women a “Happy Mother’s Day!” – by calling for an end to mothers’ “unwanted” babies. In a May 6 Huffington Post piece, blogger Kristine Holmgren argued for “No More Angry Mothers; Embracing Accessible Abortion and Affordable Contraception.” In it, she announced that before “safe, affordable, accessible abortion” existed, most mothers were “angry mothers.” To prevent future “angry mothers,” Holmgren declared that women should “protect our liberties,” including “our birthright” to abortion this Mother’s Day. Kristine Holmgren, a self-described “Feminist [Presbyterian] theologian and produced playwright” stressed a “deep commitment to the...

The Clinton camp tweeted out the contest Sunday, just when many Americans were scrambling for last-minute gifts and brunch reservations. Entering is free, but those who sign up get directed to a page where they get the chance to “increase your odds” by giving cash to Clinton’s presidential campaign. Contribution amounts are listed at amounts ranging from $5 to $2,700. There is no second prize listed —...

On Sunday afternoon, Christine Weick stood at an intersection in the city of Grandville with a sign that read, “Thank your mom today for not being gay.” Her message was that Mother's Day is a celebration of children and the natural family, something incompatible with homosexuality.

    Mother’s Day is a wonderful celebration- a time when mothers are honored for their constant love and daily sacrifice, and when life itself is recognized and treasured as the gift that it is. But for many women who have had abortions, Mother’s Day is one of the biggest triggers of painful memories, regrets, and remorse over what “might have been.” My heart breaks for these women. Even though they accepted and believed the messages our society esteems so highly—messages about a woman’s right to choose and the importance of “family planning”—these women have learned, through bitter experience, the truth that...

    The White House found a way to celebrate Mother’s Day early, by sending out a series of tweets today promoting Obamacare. The official White House Twitter account specifically touting the HHS abortion mandate that compels religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions under their employee health care plans. The mandate is so egregious it has drawn more than 100 lawsuits from religious groups, business, school and others who are not allowed to opt out under the narrow provisions. Last week, in a huge victory for pro-life advocates taking on the controversial HHS mandate, the...

    Mother's Day is Sunday. Traditionally, it is a day to honor and respect all that mothers do and sacrifice for the sake of their children. And while this day is important, special, and necessary, we can't help but wonder what our country would be like if we celebrated mothers every day. If mothers and babies were held in the highest regard, as they should be, each and every day of the year, think about the lives that could be spared. Think about the heartache that would not come about because a mother chose to abort her child. That would truly...

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, May 11, 2012, ( – This Sunday, children of all ages will celebrate the role mothers play in their lives. But Vogue model Christy Turlington Burns and a host of female celebrities are encouraging mothers across the nation to ignore their children as part of “No Mother’s Day,” a sign of their support for reducing maternal mortality by supporting family planning and global access to abortion. The campaign asks women to “disappear” on Mother’s Day to raise awareness of maternal mortality rates and underscore “just how much a mother is missed when she’s gone.” But amidst positive...

    The left hates the fact that men and women are different. They hate the differences so much that they pretend they don't exist. It's kinda' like when my five year old is mad at her brother. She closes her eyes, covers hear ears and announces, "I can't hear you." Journalist Kate Stone Lombardi believes that the different ways that Mothers Day and Fathers Day are celebrated shows how backwards we are and not as hip as say... Time Magazine. Of course, there is not a thing wrong with children saying thank you for all those cuddles and comfort, or for...
