  • Arizona Abortion Ruling Overturned; Pro-Lifers Celebrate

    Arizona pro-life supporters achieved a victory on Thursday when an appeals court threw out an injunction that blocked key aspects of a 2009 Arizona abortion law from taking effect. The ruling allows the Arizona’s Abortion Consent Act to go into effect, which requires women to have an in-person meeting with a doctor 24 hours before getting an abortion. This meeting, a part of the informed-consent laws, is supposed to ensure that the women are informed of the procedure, possible side effects, and implications of the surgery before they give their consent for it. “Everyone deserves full and accurate information before...
  • Who’s Really Pro-Choice? Democrats like to allow women to have abortions, but not much else

    Almost unanimously, Washington Democrats call themselves “pro-choice.” “I support a woman’s right to choose!” they thunder into any open microphone. “Choice,” of course, means abortion, though they rarely yell that word as loudly. Being able to have abortions is where the Democrats’ passion for choice starts and stops. Elsewhere, Democrats sabotage a woman’s right to choose. Instead, they demand to make that choice for her, as they do for men. • I support a woman’s right to choose not to perform an abortion. Democrats disagree. While they rally early and often for the freedom to receive abortions, many Democrats oppose...

    Except for any ethos he probably brings to the economic debate (being rich has that effect on people, for all I really know Romney knows economics like Hugh Hefner knows the dust emanating from his pores is an aphrodisiac) I've always been a bit uneasy about Mitt Romney. This weekend he didn't do himself any favors to assuage that uneasiness. When it comes to abortion, Romney waffles so much Eggo should pay him for being a walking advertisement. Abortion won't, and shouldn't, be the primary issue of the next presidential election his position, or lack of one. However, this...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Some mothers said Friday they disapprove of a controversial state law that goes into effect July 1, making it legal to carry guns in Indianapolis city parks and playgrounds, which is currently banned by a city ordinance. The new law generally prohibits local governments from regulating firearms, 6News' Joanna Massee reported. Mothers who brought their children to Garfield Park told 6News that they disagree with the law. "Why would you need a gun at the park? You're supposed to come to the park to play with your children," said Eyvonna Hyatt, who has a 3-year-old daughter and a...

    In the prevailing wisdom of polls and pundits, Mitt Romney is a "top tier" contender for the Republican nomination for President. The prevailing wisdom also says that Romney's Mormonism will not be, or should not be, a factor in the election. Romney's Mormonism is purportedly like Kennedy's Catholicism: interesting, perhaps troubling from a theological point of view, but irrelevant to his governing philosophy. I believe this prevailing wisdom is all wrong. His religious worldview will be vital to his governing philosophy, and will ultimately be the issue that undermines his candidacy. Let's begin by noting that several prominent social conservatives...
  • Mixed results from latest Gallup polling on abortion (pro-choicers now outnumber pro-lifers)

    Gallup has polled on abortion for decades, ever since Roe v Wade overturned state bans on the procedure. Two years ago, Gallup f0und that the pro-life position had taken a majority for the first time (51/42), but retreated somewhat in 2010 to a narrow 47/45 plurality. Their latest poll, released today, gives the pro-choice position a plurality edge for the first time in three years: Americans are closely divided between those calling themselves “pro-choice” and those who are “pro-life,” now 49% and 45%, respectively, in Gallup’s 2011 update on U.S. abortion attitudes. This is similar to a year ago, when...

    The Moderate Separatist ^ | May 12, 2011 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan
    My first issue is with the terms themselves. I don't buy into the pro-life vs. pro-choice idea. That is a fabrication, a misdirection that those who support abortion have pushed to define the battle. For the most part, isn't everyone pro-life and pro-choice? Shed the window dressing and let's call it what it is: pro or anti abortion. I am one of those who believes abortion should only be performed in extreme cases. All too often the medical procedure is used under false pretences, or out-right birth control after the fact. The current generation of teens are taught by their...

    The Cemetery of the Innocents at Clarion University in Clarion, PA is supposed to commemorate the millions of babies lost to abortion. But last week, the quaint memorial with 350 wooden crosses resembled a satanic ritual scene after it was vandalized during the campus’s Life Week, which also happened to be Holy Week. Students for Life of America (SLA) explains the vandalism: In a breathtaking public display of anti-Christian and anti-Life motivations, 350 crosses were pulled up and re-inserted in inverted fashion, a well-known anti-Christian symbol. Additionally, red paint was splattered on crosses and signs. Even eerier was the mock...

    Republicans who swept into power in state capitols this year with promises to cut spending and bolster the business climate now usher in a new era of labor relations that could result in the largest reduction of power in decades for public employee unions. The question GOP governors and lawmakers are now facing is exactly how far they can go without possibly alienating voters they won over in the midterm elections last fall. In Wisconsin, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is going for it all — the elimination of collective bargaining rights for public employees plus sharp increases in their health...

    February 18, 2011 ( - In a historic vote Friday afternoon, the US House voted to strike all federal funding for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Every year the abortion giant receives hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding. The congressional body voted 240-185 in favor of the amendment, introduced by Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), to the 2011 Federal Spending Bill. Immediately after the vote Rep. Pence released a statement saying: “This afternoon’s vote is a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life. By banning federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress has taken a stand for millions...

The allegations against the Dem-leaning charity have far-reaching political implications for state AG Eric Schneiderman.... whose office regulates charities, and who received NARAL's endorsement. His father, Irwin Schneiderman, was NARAL’s treasurer during the audit period.

    When Sarah Palin took the podium in St. Paul to accept her nomination for the vice presidency in September 2008, calm and collected feminists might have recalled the old saw: Be careful what you wish for. Here she was, an ambitious political woman with the sort of egalitarian marriage that would put the Swedes to shame. Here she was, a charismatic, working-class heroine who oozed folksy provincialism with the naturalness of Lyndon Johnson in the same breath as she cheered her Hillary Clintonesque assault on the “glass ceiling.” Yes, here she was—clinging to her guns, her religion, and her babies,...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Eyewitness News has learned that a West Philadelphia doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury Investigation. Sources say Dr. Kermit Gosnell faces eight counts of murder in the death of a woman following a botched abortion at his office at 38th and Lancaster Avenues, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions. Four of the suspects, some improperly licensed, also face multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing the newborns. All of the suspects are now behind bars after...

    There is little doubt that America has become a culture of death. Two of the most dangerous places to be are so-called women’s clinics and nursing homes. We do not value life that is not at its prime. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that a doctor was killing babies with scissors. Maybe we should be surprised he’s actually been arrested for it. On Wednesday an abortion doctor in West Philadelphia was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors. Dr. Kermit Gosnell has...

    ...The abortion lie has been revealed in its wretched ugliness. Every procured abortion is the intentional killing of an innocent child. No-one who continues to support it is a friend of the poor. The baby in the womb is, as Mother Teresa so clearly reminded us, the "poorest of the poor". Defenders of abortion on demand hate the poor. Any Nation which protects in the positive law the taking of innocent human life in the womb, calling it a "right" and a "choice" is participating in evil and promoting darkness. The Gospel for the Mass on the Feast of the...

    President Obama on Wednesday sat down with chief executives from major companies such as Boeing, Comcast, General Electric and Google for a lengthy "working meeting" to urge them to do more hiring to bring down unemployment and work with him to strengthen the economic recovery. "I am looking forward to getting good ideas from them, but I am definitely going to talk to them about how we can get more hiring out there," Obama told reporters as he walked across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House to attend the meeting at Blair House. The meeting was expected to last about...

    He was talking specifically about a bill pending in the Indiana state legislature, not proposing a new federal “truce” on social issues, but even so, this guy must understand that he’s under a microscope now that he’s being touted as a presidential contender, right? Every utterance is significant, and he’s already got not one but two strikes against him. Is he trying to scare social cons? I can kinda sorta understand that as a primary strategy, if you think there are enough centrist Republicans out there (or at least, anti-social-con Republicans) to push you through to the nomination, but you...

    No conscience. No soul. No heart. That’s what I see when I look at both of these women (and I use that term loosely), Rachel Maddow and Dr. Elizabeth Newhall. Maddow ask Newhall if she still feels like she “is a target” by the pro-lifers. Dr. Newhall gives her response and it includes, “Women have abortions because they care about motherhood. I don’t think people really realize that and… so, i suppose, frightened and yes, determined to continue to provide women health care.” I find it deeply ironic that together they lament on the dangers of being an abortionist doctor,...
