    The latest effort to recruit abortionists relies on stealth and fresh fruit. Using a papaya as a uterus, medical students learn abortion techniques under the guise of “miscarriage management.” One activist group boasts that the “papaya workshop” is now part of resident training at a Catholic hospital that prohibits abortion. A group of pro-abortion doctors in the UK declared 2013 “the year of the papaya” in response to the recent growth in popularity of this training exercise that has existed for several years. Originally developed as a way to demonstrate an abortion technique called manual vacuum aspiration, the papaya is...

    I'm posting my situation on a thread in order to alert others to be on the look out of ways the government, especially the local government, may be ripping us off. I believe we are being targeted as fools to pay for our politicians shortfalls. I live in Maryland, a very liberal state which taxes everything, and am seeing signs they are desperate to raise money instead of ways to cut spending. Here is a situation I found myself in recently: I received a "final notice" for speed monitoring violation from the town of Forest Heights PD (Maryland). However, I...

    It's unfair to say that the Republican Congress has done nothing on immigration. In one respect, according to a new report from state officials, Congress made matters worse. In May of last year Congress passed the Real ID Act at the urging of House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R., Wis.). It was yet another border-security measure, intended to thwart illegal immigration by denying drivers' licenses to undocumented aliens. President Bush signed the legislation in hopes that Republicans then would meet him halfway on comprehensive immigration reform. Didn't happen. We now know that the Tom Tancredo "enforcement first" crowd has no...

    Dear Colleague:   There is an inexpensive, low-hassle alternative to electric machines for surgical abortion.  Unfortunately, manual vacuum aspirators (MVAs) are becoming more common but have never been examined by the FDA for safety.  Whether you are here or abroad, please e-mail jad@pop.org with information about the safety or efficacy of MVAs.   Steven W. MosherPresident   PRI Weekly Briefing1 September 2006Vol. 8, No. 34 Abortion the Cheap and Easy WayBy Joseph A.

  • Will state hit brakes on illegals driver's licenses? (MD)

    The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration is not awarding driver's licenses to illegal aliens in a timely fashion, according to a government-funded advocacy group that has filed a lawsuit in Baltimore Circuit Court. This is as it should be in a state that has rolled out a welcome mat to the illegal aliens streaming across the Rio Grande. Maryland is one of the favored destinations of illegal aliens because the state aims to show its pronounced level of multiculturalism. All this is symptomatic of a nation that has lost its way, of politicians who lack the spine to enforce our laws,...

    Congress set to impose ID card rules States would need to verify papers By Charlie Savage, Globe Staff | May 5, 2005 WASHINGTON -- Congressional negotiators have agreed on a sweeping new system that would nationalize standards for driver's licenses and state identification cards, requiring states to verify the authenticity of every document that people use to prove their identity and show their legal residency. If the House and Senate both pass the bill next week as expected, by May 2008 every state will be required to contact the issuers of birth certificates, mortgage statements, utility bills, Social Security cards,...

    It is against the law to deny an illegal alien a driver's license, says the executive director of an immigration-rights advocacy group in Maryland, presumably with a straight face and without the help of a laugh track. The advocacy group obviously picks which laws to embrace. An illegal alien is an illegal alien, after all. Given the potential usefulness of this upside-down appeal, an advocacy group for pickpockets is perhaps an idea whose time is nearing. If so, in these enlightened times, the group undoubtedly would seek assault charges against anyone who might clamp down on the wrist of the...
