Roe V. Wade

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 [...]

SCOTUS to Hear Arguments on Gay Marriage

March 26, 2013

Today the Supreme Court will hear the first of two cases dealing with gay marriage — the first being about California’s Proposition 8, the second about the constitutionality of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Prop 8 simply states: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is recognized in California.“  It passed with [...]

40 Years of Roe

January 22, 2013

January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade decision, 7-2, with only Justices White and Rehnquist dissenting.  Since then an estimated 50-54 million babies’ lives have been ended as a result.  Today, issues of religious freedom, sex-selective abortions (aka gendercide), paying for other people’s abortions, and a seriously pro-abortion President in [...]

38 Years of an American Silent Holocaust

January 22, 2011

Thirty-eight years ago today, on January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade was handed down, legalizing abortion and overturning 46 state laws which restricted it.  The “logic” of the 7-2 decision sounds almost comical when read today.  Since then, an estimated 52 million abortions have taken place in the United States either [...]

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.  [...]

Perry Pushes the 10th

April 14, 2009

Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) took a bold step which is just getting press this week:  the right of a state to reject federal money which has strings attached that will be harmful to that state’s economic well-being.  Perry’s justification for his support of HCR 50 is the states’ rights amendment to the US Constitution, [...]

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”; [...]

Barack Obama The Anti-Lincoln

January 25, 2009

The left’s comparisons between Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln have been nonstop since before Obama was even inaugurated. Less than a week after taking office, Obama has proved that not only is such a comparison absurd on its face, but that he is an anti-Lincoln.  During last Friday’s unpopular news dump hour, Obama issued an [...]

The Case for Social Conservatism

November 14, 2008

As is typical when Republicans lose, a debate is occurring in the GOP and the Conservative Movement over the role of social conservatism in the party.  There are those that think, incorrectly, that social conservatism is a drag on the party.  The arguments include the idea that a majority of people in this country are [...]

First step in dismantling of Roe v. Wade

November 7, 2005

Tomorrow may mark the first step to the dismantling of the horribly-reasoned and dubious piece of Constitutional Scholarship known as Roe v. Wade. California has a ballot initiative for Parental Notification rights, which is expected to pass. It is expected that various liberal groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and others will file suite as [...]
