  • The Illusion of Neutrality: The secular state cannot be neutral in matters of religion

    Public Discourse ^ | 9/11/14 | Anthony Esolen
    We have all heard what has come to be a liberal dictum, that the State must remain neutral as regards religion or irreligion. One can show fairly easily that the men who wrote our constitution had no such neutrality in mind, given the laws that they and their fellows subsequently passed, their habits of public prayer at meetings, and their common understanding that freedom without virtue, and virtue without piety, were chimeras. To show that that understanding persisted, all one need do is open every textbook for school children published for almost two hundred years; or recall that Catholic immigrants...
  • Cecile Richards complains about over-the-counter birth control plan

    Abortion advocates have long been pushing for birth control and emergency contraceptives to be sold over-the-counter. According to Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, some politicians are trying to make the birth control pill available without health insurance and over-the-counter. But rather than being excited about this, Richards has written an op-ed for CNN explaining about how bad this will be for women. So when politicians who have otherwise embraced policies that would drag women back to the 1950s suggest making birth control available over the counter instead of covering it in insurance plans, they’re not experiencing a change of heart....

    A string of Republican candidates for Senate are supporting an issue usually associated with Democrats: increased access to contraception. They're supporting it on the road and in ads, like this one from anti-abortion conservative Cory Gardner: YouTube In it, he says he believes "the pill ought to be available over the counter, round the clock, without a prescription." Tom Tillis and Ed Gillespie, also anti-abortion conservatives, have made similar statements. Some of them have been associated with state legislation to restrict abortions or with so-called "personhood" amendments that would give constitutional rights to fertilized eggs. So what gives? First of...

    Pro-abortion activists fight for abortion throughout pregnancy for any reason—no exceptions. Their fundamental argument centers on women’s health.But stunning research shows this concern is all smoke and mirrors.Pro-abortion activists have long tried to claim that abortion is safer than childbirth. For years they’ve touted manipulated numbers, trying in vain to bolster this myth. We’ve always known those statistics were bogus, and a study by Dr. Priscilla Coleman and Dr. David Reardon reveals abortion is much more dangerous to women than giving birth. And the results are sadly even more devastating to women’s health than even I had anticipated.First, let me...

    Keli Goff ‘s essay at the Daily Beast was headlined “A Christian Case for Abortion Rights?” Does that not sound like the vegetarian’s case for meat, Barack Obama’s case for decisive leadership, or the devout atheist—contrary at its core? This oldie but badie argument merits a rebuttal, not because it is so original but because it is like the 700th iteration of a Xerox.So what IS the Christian case for abortion rights, you ask? It’s really more like how Goff has concluded that a pro-life position, for Christians, at least, is problematic because of “four primary complications.” These are so...

    If Roe v. Wade were overturned tomorrow, we would celebrate, right? Well, yes, but not so fast. A fringe element of the pro-choice movement has always insisted that Roe, even though it legalized abortion in the United States, didn’t go far enough. You see, in his majority opinion in the fateful 1973 Supreme Court case, Justice Harry Blackmun established a number of criteria for legal abortion, among them the so-called “viability test.” According to Blackmun, if a fetus lacks viability outside the womb, it also lacks a component of personhood, and therefore a right to life. In the years since Roe, of course, viability has become...

They were accused of “provoking a moral panic,” or being “stuck in the past” or “too prudish.” The “slippery-slope” arguments of...

And you can Google it and look at her written statement. The purpose of creating Planned Parenthood was for population control in the black neighborhoods. Look at where all or most of the abortion clinics are: in the black neighborhoods to control...

    Alliance Defending Freedom filed an application with the European Court of Human Rights Wednesday on behalf of Tom Mortier, who is challenging Belgium’s laws that allow euthanasia. Mortier’s mother was put to death by a doctor for “untreatable depression” even though she was not terminally ill. Mortier did not find out what had happened until he received a telephone call the day after her death. “The government has an obligation to protect life, not assist in promoting death,” said ADF Litigation Staff Counsel Robert Clarke. “A person can claim that she should be able to do whatever she pleases, but...

    It wasn’t “the Nazis” that caused the mass euthanasia deaths of disabled infants and adults. It was the eugenics ideology of the era that denied human exceptionalism.We are heading in the same direction–although certainly not mass murder of the kind that happened in Germany circa 1939-1945.But we too have accepted the idea that there is such a thing as an unlivable life. Indeed, in the Netherlands, babies born with serious or terminal disabilities are killed in their cribs by doctors.In Belgium and the Netherlands, people with serious mental illnesses are euthanized–to widespread applause.All of this reminds me of the words...
  • Why Do Many Pro-Life Catholics Vote Democrat?

    Why do Catholics who are aligned with Democrats on social welfare and Republicans on abortion usually vote Democrat? Recent political science research suggests an answer. Some Catholics who vote for Democratic candidates incorrectly assume those candidates are pro-life. Catholics are often used as an example of "cross-pressured voters" due to the political party positions on abortion and welfare. Laura Hussey, associate professor of American public policy and administration at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Geoffrey Layman, professor of political science at University of Notre Dame, however, found that a minority of Catholics were both pro-life and pro-welfare, and those...

    On Monday, PBS aired the controversial documentary “After Tiller,” a film that sympathizes with the four remaining late-term abortionists in the country. Pro-life groups immediately filed petitions urging the station to remove the film from its lineup, to no avail. Today, the documentary’s filmmakers and Dr. Susan Robinson, one of the abortionists featured in the film, participated in a Google Chat to field viewers’ questions. Their “answers” were misleading, accusatory, and, at times, outright lies.“What is the hardest part of your job?,” one Google participant asked Dr. Robinson: “Listening to the desperate, sad stories and not taking it on as...

    Abortion proponents and news outlets have recently enjoyed publicizing the antics of pro-choice husband and wife “troll” team, Grayson and Tina Haver Currin, who began in March to hold off-putting signs next to those being held by pro-lifers at the A Preferred Women’s Health Center abortion clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina. The couple’s attempt to make light of murdering babies even made international headlines, like in Denmark… And they’ve spawned other trolls, like in front of the San Francisco Planned Parenthood… The only problem is, abortion clinics don’t want them there. These people think they’re cute, but they’re hurting business....

    Over the objections of plenty of taxpayers, PBS – a publicly funded channel – aired “After Tiller” on Labor Day. “After Tiller” is a documentary glorifying the work of four late-term abortionists in the U.S. Day after day, these abortionists willingly take the lives of viable babies, some of them nearly full-term. And often, despite what “After Tiller” shows, the only reason for the murder of these innocents is their inconvenience. People who’ve seen “After Tiller” need to know another side to the story of late term abortion. Here, for starters, are five things you need to know: 1) Carhart’s...

    If the United States wants to stop the wave of minors and young adults flooding across its southern border from Central America, it should help Hispanic women in those countries abort their children. That's the thesis of a “featured article” posted August 19 in YaleGlobal Online, a publication of Yale University. Marisol Ruiz, a past Fox International Fellow at Yale, proposes that Congress “should attach specific conditions” to emergency aid packages designed to stop crime in Central America, “ensuring the money will implement policies focused on gender mainstreaming, highlighting the importance of transforming gender relations.” “Gender mainstreaming” in the heavily...

    The main web site behind Planned Parenthood’s attempt to lure students with a sex educational campaign that leads to abortion now points those teenagers to a web site promoting pornography. The pro-life group Iowa Right to Life discovered the change and how the Planned Parenthood Teenwire web site — which is linked to by thousands of web sites across the country and whose URL is printed on sex ed literature distributed in schools nationwide — now points to a porn site. “Over the holiday weekend, we became aware of a new danger for Iowa children and teenagers,” Iowa Right to...

    So how are a boat anchored in international waters off Dublin, Ireland, border town flea markets in Texas, a businessman in India, and a storefront in rural Iowa all related?According to an article written by Emily Bazelon appearing in last Thursday’s New York Times (8/28/14), they’re all key pieces of the abortion industry’s transition from relying almost exclusively on standard brick and mortar clinics that performed surgical abortions to a new model where chemical abortifacients can be ordered over the internet or purchased over the counter and performed at home by women on themselves—hence the acronym D-I-Y (Do-It-Yourself) abortions.Bazelon’s article,...
