These were perfectly ordinary middle class people, who are of the immediate post-War generation, born in the mid-40s. They worked quite hard all their lives, and built a business, which did fairly well. They had assumed that this work would pay off in the long term, and that because they had planned carefully and wisely, and had saved and lived pretty sensibly, that they were more...

Support for the right to end your own life indicates that you are a progressive-minded, compassionate person sensitive to the unique feelings and experiences of individuals facing terminal illness or chronic pain. It means you value the right of self-determination, and oppose the would-be tyranny of moral absolutes promoted by the politically conservative and spiritually religious. The Disovery Institute's Wesley J. Smith recently penned a piece for First Things discussing the media's treatment of the issue of suicide. Smith cites a recent NBC story featuring...

Those opposing such laws are commonly accused of condemning to death people on the waitlist. Law enforcement officials, however, are taking exception to...

Five states (Connecticut, Hawaii, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont) don't offer any qualified plans that follow Hyde's precedent, in place since 1977.

    Abortion is not health care and a handful of Texas-based clinic affiliated with the Planned Parenthood abortion business have found that out the hard way. The Planned Parenthood abortion business is the biggest abortion company in the United States. It runs hundreds of clinics across America ó some of which do surgical abortions, some dispense the dangerous abortion pill RU 486, and all clinics refer women for abortions (and not to any clinics that provide women with abortion alternatives). plannedparenthood129Because every Planned Parenthood clinic either does or refers for abortions, pro-life elected officials in Congress and a number of states...
  • The Illusion of Neutrality: The secular state cannot be neutral in matters of religion

    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, theyíre 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 reasonóno exceptions. Their fundamental argument centers on womenís 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 theyíve touted manipulated numbers, trying in vain to bolster this myth. Weíve 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 womenís health than even I had anticipated.First, let me...

    Keli Goff ¬Ďs essay at the Daily Beast was headlined ¬ďA Christian Case for Abortion Rights?¬Ē Does that not sound like the vegetarian¬ís case for meat, Barack Obama¬ís case for decisive leadership, or the devout atheist¬ócontrary 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¬ís really more like how Goff has concluded that a pro-life position, for Christians, at least, is problematic because of ¬ďfour primary complications.¬Ē These are so...

    Two recent articles on euthanasia and assisted suicide in the Australian press serve to highlight the dilemma of the form of any legislation that might be proposed as well as the reality of what crossing the Rubicon of the prohibition on killing or assisting in suicide will mean for a society like ours.Senator David Leyonhjelm (Assisted Suicide. OnLine Opinion, Sept 8) poses the classical libertarian view (that ¬Ďpermission from government should not be required¬í) while The Age writer, Julia Medew, records the view of one of the doctors she interviews as seeking legislative control (Don¬ít-tell doctors supporting secret euthanasia deaths...

    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‚Äôt 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 ‚Äúviability test.‚ÄĚ 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...

    French judges on Wednesday acquitted nine Femen activists who staged a topless protest in Paris's Notre Dame Cathedral last year, but gave suspended fines to church security guards for "manhandling" the activists as they removed them. The Femen protesters entered Notre Dame on February 12, 2013 dressed in long coats, which they removed once inside, revealing anti-church and anti-pope slogans painted on their upper bodies. They began screaming "Pope no more!", "No more homophobe," and "Bye bye Benedict!" Ė reportedly in response to Pope Benedict's resignation announcement Ė while using sticks to hit one of the huge bells, on display...
