  • Airlines Rejects Female Passenger Because Pro-Choice T-Shirt is "Inappropriate" [Language alert]

    RH Reality Check ^ | May 22, 2012 | Jodi Jacobson
    Yesterday I attended a meeting of pro-choice colleagues working to ensure women throughout this country get safe, compassionate abortion care. Today, I received an email from one of those colleagues, detailing the ordeal through which she was put by American Airlines on her flights home. They actually forced her to miss her connecting flight and demanded she change her top. The reason? Her politically salient pro-choice t-shirt was offensive to the flight crew. That sign said: "If I wanted the government in my womb, I'd f*** a senator." ...

    Some years ago, I was sitting in a tree stand in Sampson County, North Carolina. Less than an hour after ascending into the stand, a beautiful doe stepped into my field of vision. I raised my 30/30 and set my sights just behind her right shoulder. Just as I was about to pull the trigger, I saw something moving along the outer perimeter of my field of vision. I glanced to my right and saw a young fawn grazing just 25 yards away from its mother – the doe I had nearly shot. I had to draw my weapon...

    In one breath, Forbes contributor Chitra Sundaram bemoans how “no real discussion occurs online or offline” when it comes to abortion policy. In the next, she unwittingly betrays her own culpability in the sad state of our national dialogue with a tirade about pro-lifers’ alleged heartlessness: The silent masses, much as Margaret Sanger, a pioneer in Women’s reproductive rights and one of the founders of Planned Parenthood found during her travails, remain ignored. They live and die on the fringes of society, in pockets of dire poverty and inner city tenements, even in an ultra-rich country like ours. Yet they...

    A decade ago, while running for Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney vowed to "preserve and protect a woman's right to choose" abortion. On Thursday, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee won the endorsement of both the oldest and largest anti-abortion group in the nation — the National Right to Life Committee — and one of the newer groups with a large wad of cash ready to spend on his behalf — the Susan B. Anthony List. National Right to Life Committee President Carol Tobias said Romney's former position supporting abortion rights doesn't bother her or her organization.

    The debate over abortion comes down to one essential issue — the moral status of the unborn child. Those making the case for the legalization of abortion argue that the developing fetus lacks a moral status that would trump a woman’s desire to abort the child. Those arguing against abortion do so by making the opposite claim; that the unborn child, precisely because it is a developing human being, possesses a moral status by the very fact of its human existence that would clearly trump any rationale offered for its willful destruction. This central issue is often obscured in both...

    Thanks to an NYT story this weekend, this bit of old news has been resurrected, showcased yesterday in a Peter Robinson post at Ricochet and then picked up by Rush Limbaugh this afternoon. The key quote is six years old and appeared in a story in National Review so it’s been on the right’s radar since well before Romney’s first presidential run. And yet, much like the mandate, somehow he didn’t get much grief over it last time when he was running as the conservative in the race. Mr. Romney’s transformation on abortion is, in some respects, the story of...

    It is common knowledge that more books have been written about Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President, than any other figure except Jesus Christ. With so much archeological attention directed toward him it is unlikely that much new factual material will surface about Mr. Lincoln. When taken as a whole, the in-depth forensic examinations of his writings, relationships, lineage, marriage, religion (or supposed lack thereof), evidence a complex and brilliant identity. An interesting phenomenon of the last twenty years, however, has been to place a contemporary lens over Lincoln. In recent writings, Lincoln has been gay, depressed, and now even a...

    We have heard of the horrors imposed on the people of China—women who have been forced to have abortions due to China’s demented and barbaric “one-child policy.” Due to that sick mandate, enacted in the late 1970s, a disproportionately large male population has resulted, because Chinese parents have selectively aborted baby girls in the hopes of having a son instead. Back in 2004, China banned sex-selection abortions, and according to current legislation pending in the U.S. House of Representatives, China is enforcing the ban. India and the United Kingdom have also banned sex and race-based abortions, and the United Nations...

    Nancy Pelosi frequently likes to remind us that she is a “devout Catholic,” yet she continually finds herself at odds with Catholic doctrine particularly as it relates to innocent human life.  The Church has long defended the right for health care providers to refuse to perform abortions or provide contraception devices and procedures as a right of conscience under First Amendment protections.  As part of the Democrats’ seizure of the health care industry with ObamaCare, Pelosi led the charge to attack the “Conscience Clause” protections originating in 1973 immediately following the Roe v. Wade decision, updated repeatedly over the years...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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.

"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...
  • Women Get Abortions Because They Care About Motherhood?

    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,...
  • Preach the Gospel or Social/Moral Issues?

    10/29/2010 10:25:25 AM PDT · by DBCJR
    As we approach Election Day, some would ask "Is the mission of the Church to preach the Gospel or to take a biblical stance on social and moral issues of our day?" The latter certainly has some political ramifications and may, at times, seem to run afoul of our sense of political correctness and the doctrine of Separation of Church and State. That doctrine, though no where present in the Constitution, has been a long standing construction of several Supreme Court decisions. How it has been applied has varied from situation to situation, often more guided by the cultural sense...
  • Pro-abortionist attempts to commit vehicular homicide of pro-lifers

    ...A man that had been verbally harassing pro-lifers outside a late-term abortion mill in Albuquerque for days, escalated his abuse to violence yesterday by driving his large paneled delivery truck up on a curb and striking the large pro-life sign being held by Bud Shaver. Shaver was unhurt in the incident but his sign showing an image of an aborted baby was damaged. Shaver jumped into the Truth Truck and was able to get the license plate number of the vehicle that hit him. He reported the incident to the police. "We just explained our concern [to the police] that...

    “Man Arrested After Threatening to Gun Down Pro-life Activists at Late-Term Abortion Clinic”... When one supports the brutal, painful, dismembering murder of healthy, innocent, defenseless and beautiful human babies can respect for life in general be expected? Consider some stats, with a little Richard Dawkins thrown in, at this link.

    Today marks “Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity” and it is all the more important and relevant today since as of late we hear someone say, “While abortion is safe anyway, the earlier it's done, the safer it is.” The question is, “‘Safer’ for whom?” how can it ever be safe or safer when the very point is to murder a human being? And who said it? Vicki Saporta who is the President of the National Abortion Federation—and the abortion money machine rolls on.... For various considerations of abortion—including the New Atheist’s misanthropy and the spiritualist feminists darkest pit—see: Death resides...

    According to Planned Parenthood Federation of America director, Cecile Richards, “choice is meaningless” unless pro-lifers help pay for it. In an email to supporters Tuesday, Richards urges readers to help fill a million signatures on a petition demanding free birth control. She says: The truth is, choice is meaningless without access to affordable care. The recent rise of a new crop of anti-choice extremists shows just how important it is for people like you and me to stand up for access to affordable reproductive health care. To protect choice now and forever, we must give every woman the support she...
  • Pro-Life Sign Causes Reaction

    A pro-life billboard in Marinette is causing mixed reactions among the citizens of that town. Standing large and tall, right by a high school, reads a caption by a clearly pregnant woman with a picture of a baby inside her belly, “My mom is going to kill me. My mom REALLY is going to KILL ME.” FOX reports: "It’s the way teenagers talk,” Michael Ebert, LifeCore president explained. “If someone is out too late they say ‘my mother’s going to kill me.’ This girl has gotten pregnant and she says ‘my mom’s going to kill me.’ Well what we also...

    Planned Parenthood (an oxymoron at best) has been the trailblazer in legalized murder and promiscuous sex for many decades. Since Margaret Sanger, outspoken eugenics and sexual immorality supporter, began her first birth control clinic in 1916, the value of human life has dropped. Since then, countless millions of infants have died in the name of convenience. That’s what PP is about. Conveniece for those who are irresponsible. PP has, since the beginning (and true to Sanger’s own sexual views) promoted promiscuous sex. In her own words, “[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children…” Not withstanding...
