Roe Plus 41

January 22, 2014

Ghastly math:  Roe v. Wade + 41 years = 55 million deaths. On this dark anniversary, tens of thousands braved Arctic cold and snow for the fortieth “March For Life” in Washington DC.  I was actually at one of these back in 1998.  It was inspiring to see so many others from all parts of [...]

Idaho Pro-Lifers Spread the Word, Through Ultrasound, that Life is Beautiful

March 22, 2012

A group of pro-lifers in Idaho, led by Brandi Swindell, have taken a novel approach to making the case in favor of the right to life: performing ultrasounds before an audience of women in the State Capitol. The pro-choice movement always tries to avoid discussing what an abortion actually does.  That’s because the most powerful [...]

Occupiers in RI Disrupt Pro-Life Rally

January 31, 2012

Last week, Rhode Island’s own Occupy rubes decided to infiltrate a Right to Life rally, shout down a priest leading a prayer, and allegedly dump condoms on a group of young female students. Nothing like a greasy, unemployed, statist useful-idiot mob to keep things classy around the Ocean State.  Also, nothing like a police force [...]

“October Baby” Film Set for Wide Release in 2012

December 4, 2011

Surfing through my regular Internet haunts, I discovered this story on The Blaze about a movie called October Baby set for wide release next year.  Check out the trailer: In its struggle for intellectual converts, the right has virtually abandoned mainstream pop culture outlets as a way to get its messages out there — this [...]

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.  [...]

Ben Nelson’s About-Face

December 19, 2009

I guess we all have our price.  I guess sometimes the weight of the Liberal world is too much for those not grounded in principle to withstand for too long.  I guess we should have expected Ben Nelson to capitulate to Harry Reid and Obama’s powerful minions and agree to vote cloture on Harry Reid’s [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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”; [...]

Haleigh Poutre and the Sanctity of Life

November 20, 2008

Two years ago on these pages, I followed the remarkable story here in Massachusetts of young Haleigh Poutre.  A victim of abuse, she ended up on a feeding tube and breathing machine.  Doctors diagnosed her as being in a persistent vegetative state, and unable to recover.  The state wanted to bring murder charges against her [...]

McCain v. Obama at the Saddleback Church Civic Forum

August 17, 2008

Last evening, the evangelical mega-church, Saddleback Church, had a “civic forum” with the candidates to discuss issues Pastor Rick Warren wished to hear about.  It was not a debate in the usual sense.  The format was excellent: about 50 minutes a piece, one candidate at a time using the same questions with the same audience for [...]

Boxer Hits the Pope

April 18, 2008

Barbara Boxer is a complete b-tch! Here Pope Benedict XVI, leader of over 1 billion Roman Catholics around the world and 65 million in the USA alone, has come to the United States for the first time in his Papacy bringing good will and reconciliation to all, when Ned Flanders himself Senator Sam Brownback wanted to [...]

Rudy Giuliani’s Good Strategy

January 30, 2008

Rudy Giuliani made the right decision when he decided to skip Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina to focus on Florida. The fact that his strategy was unsuccessful does not change the fact that the alternative would have been even more difficult to pull off. At this moment, the Republican Party is not a conservative [...]

This is disgusting on so many levels

November 6, 2005

The Boston Globe has a story today about a young 11 year-old girl, Haleigh Poutre, who is on a breathing machine and a feeding tube. Her step-father is accused of nearly beating her to death, and her brain is likely permanently damaged. What has happened, however, is that the state has taken legal custody of [...]
