Fifty Years of the Pill: “Unplanned” Outcomes

May 11, 2010

Fifty years after the FDA approved use of the birth control pill a funny thing happened:  suddenly science has 50 years of data to look through, cutting through the old propaganda. Today I found a really interesting article by Daniel J. Flynn at The American Spectator which puts some counter-intuitive arguments under the statistical light [...]

Pro-Choice Movement Tries to Hide That Which They Defend

April 29, 2010

When you want to know how effective a conservative argument is, look no further than liberals’ reaction to it.  When the liberal response is to try to stop the conservative argument from being made, then the argument is obviously a winner and should be repeated.  The most well-known example of this dynamic is the Democrat [...]

Indiana Right to Life Says No More Democrat Endorsements

April 9, 2010

The Indiana Right to Life has decided that they will no longer endorse Democrat “pro-life” candidates after most of the them voted to fund abortion baby murder with taxpayer money in ObamaCare.  When ObamaCare first passed, I said that the myth of the Pro-Life Democrat was now dead forever, and now we are seeing the [...]

Does He Have the Votes?

March 4, 2010

Does Obama even have the votes to pass ObamaCare via reconciliation?  Interestingly enough, the problem may lie in the House, not in the Senate.  Obama has decided to go all-in with reconciliation, but now he must convince his own caucus in the House to unite around a single bill. The original ObamaCare proposal passed the [...]

The Myth of the Persistent Vegetative State

February 4, 2010

I’ve always been a skeptic of the concept of the medical “Persistent Vegetative State.”  A lot of my skeptesism came from my father’s battle with brain cancer, which he ultimately lost back in 2002.  About a month before he died, my dad suffered a seizure that left him unable to breath on his own.  The [...]

A Right to Life

January 22, 2010

Today marks the 37th anniversary of one of the worst legal decisions to come down from the Supreme Court in the history of this nation – Roe v. Wade.  So much has been said about the issue of abortion, and regular readers of this blog know where myself, Mike, and Ryan stand on the issue.  [...]

Planned Parenthood’s Orwellian Tactics

December 10, 2009

Planned Parenthood tries to position itself as a woman’s health clinic that happens to perform abortions, rather than an abortion center.  They talk about the importance of a woman’s “choice” and abortion being one option in that choice.  Yet, their clinic actively promotes abortion to those it counsels, and even uses Orwellian tactics in its [...]

The Catholic Bishop’s Complicity in Pushing ObamaCare

November 9, 2009

Every time I write a post that is critical of the Catholic Church, a part of me feels uneasy.  After all, I am a committed Catholic who believes in and follows the teachings of the Universal Church, and usually defer to the authority of the Bishops in most matters.  However, after serious consideration and reflection, [...]

Hopeful Pro-Life Trends Emerge

October 1, 2009

Pew Research came out with a poll (pdf) indicating that support for abortion is now tied at 50-50.  The poll’s sampling size was over 4000, so statistically it’s a pretty decent size (no one’s poll is perfect, though).  However, the largest demographic shift they found was amongst Catholics, who may have started actually listening to the homilies at [...]

Abortion Controversy at Mt. Sinai

July 27, 2009

A nurse, Catherina Cenzon-DeCarlo, was forced to assist in a late-term, partial-birth abortion procedure at Mt. Sinai hospital on May 24th, even though she was ethically opposed to the procedure, being a devout Catholic and niece to a Filipino bishop.  Invoking the conscience clause (which protects people like her from participating in things like this), she asked [...]

Ruth Bader Ginsburg And Abortion as Eugenics

July 9, 2009

Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave an interview with the New York Times, which will be published in this Sunday’s New York Times magazine.  A portion of the interview is already available online.  In the interview, Ginsburg makes a rather incredible claim about the purpose, in her mind, of the landmark Roe V. Wade decision. JUSTICE GINSBURG: [...]

George Tiller Gunned Down

May 31, 2009

Controversial late-term abortionist George Tiller was shot and killed by a lunatic earlier today at a church in Kansas.  Today’s shooting is tragic because it ended a human life and will undermine the  pro-life cause. In coming weeks, the mainstream media’s long-standing pro-choice bias will resurface.  The media will attempt to lump all pro-lifers together [...]

Samuel Armas Still Holding On

May 6, 2009

Fox News decided to follow-up on a story regarding Samuel Armas’ first baby photo at 21-weeks old in August 1999.  It is the earliest direct physical interaction between two strangers ever recorded and was used as testimony leading to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2000.  The operation which led to Michael Clancey’s famous photograph [...]

Sarah Palin’s Choice of Life

April 17, 2009

Sarah Palin spoke last night at a pro-life fundraiser in Indiana.  While there, she gave a very real, human accounting of the thoughts that went through her mind when she found out that she was pregnant with her fifth child Trig, who also suffers from Down Syndrome. In it, Palin admits to briefly contemplating an [...]

Lia Mills on Abortion

March 22, 2009

I taught Roe v. Wade in class this week and was shockingly objective.  It’s really hard when you’re a pro-life Catholic teaching in a public school, being morally opposed to abortion as a form of birth control — I just think it’s sick.  I felt like I needed a bath and confession afterwards.  I NEVER say “fetus”; [...]
