  • Dear Emily Letts, Show Us Proof of Your “Pregnancy” – I Don’t Believe You

    Now, I could be wrong about this. I am not saying that I am 100% certain that Emily Letts did not film a surgical abortion being done on herself – but there are just too many things that don’t seem to make sense about her video and her follow-up story published on Cosmopolitan. This is purely my own speculation and opinion, but I really cannot convince myself that the video is real, and I have watched it several times. Here are some of my reasons: I do not believe that Emily Letts was pregnant to begin with. She shows no...

    In a recent response to my essay, “Lady Edith and Abortion Rights,” my friend and colleague Marguerite Spencer has challenged both my literary character analysis of Lady Edith—from the television show Downton Abbey—and my staunchly pro-life stance against abortions committed for purely social reasons. I leave to fans of Downton the question of whether the Lady Edith character is a self-focused privileged brat or a compassionate tragic heroine (or perhaps some of both). Reasonable people certainly can differ on such matters! I also leave to readers’ judgment whether Spencer has fairly characterized my position. In this essay, I would like...

    Behold a runaway judiciary. One that is forcing an unwanted socio-sexual innovation in violation of tradition, religious values, and simple logic on the country at large, with the support of media, academic, and political elites with no evident regard for the consequences. Gay marriage? Yes – and in detail. But in fact, we’ve seen the same scenario before, within living memory of many AT readers. Legalized abortion was forced on the country in 1973 by identical means. There was no public debate, no crisis that had to be met, no reason to establish it by legal duress except that the...

    On an otherwise ordinary morning in the summer of 1970, a divorced and abandoned woman named Pixie went into labor in a Dallas hospital. A self-described "rough woman, born into pain and anger and raised mostly by [herself]," Pixie had spent the last few years as a barker "running the freakshow at the Bluegrass Carnival." Though she was young, Pixie had already lived a tough and troubled life, and now, at age twenty-one, she was the mother of three girls born to three different fathers. Young, scared, and alone, Pixie had initially asked her obstetrician simply to make her "not...

    Roe v. Wade was horribly decided, as even some prominent supporters of abortion rights will agree. But for now, it remains the law of the land. And it establishes a constitutional right to abortion. Amazingly, Thomas Roberts appears unaware of that. On today's Morning Joe, commenting on Mike Huckabee's speech of yesterday on how Dems wrongly accuse Republicans of a "war on women," Roberts twice said "if old white men could get pregnant, abortion would be a constitutional right."

    For Evangelicals, the word “victory” typically triggers memories revolving around the grand moment we dedicated our lives to Jesus Christ or a time we led another through prayer to know His forgiveness and redeeming love. In 2013, undoubtedly we can thank God for the millions who have found victory in Jesus. Indeed, these moments are the Church’s triumphs through Jesus Christ, but they are victories which unfold in the private realm of each individual’s heart. So as 2013 closes, let us remember, too, the Church’s largest victory in the public square: redeeming the lives of the unborn. Because it is...

    Democrats and abortion activists are gleefully cheering a vote Senate Democrats took today to abolish the filibuster. The immediate effect of the vote is that Senate Democrats can quickly approve pro-abortion nominees President Barack Obama has sent forward for lower courts. But, are there unintended consequences? One unintended consequence is that future sessions of the Senate, controlled by Republicans, could eliminate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees and a nominee who could be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade could be confirmed. The Supreme Court is generally thought to be divided 5-4 in favor of Roe at this...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg criticized the Roe v.

Bolton, which legalized abortion until the ninth month of pregnancy, was too overreaching. Ginsburg said it would have been her preference that the High Court struck down only the Texas law in question without a decision that affected other states. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Ginsburg indicated that...

Instead, Ginsburg told an audience Saturday at the University of Chicago Law School that while she supports a woman's right to choose, she feels the ruling by her predecessors on the court was too sweeping and gave abortion opponents a symbol to target. Ever since, she said, the momentum has been on the other side, with anger...

    Boston College just made the shocking announcement that Ireland's first pro-abortion Prime Minister, Enda Kenny, will be their commencement speaker and receive an honorary degree from the school. I find it incomprehensible that BC would honor Prime Minister Kenny, knowing he is advocating for legal abortion in Ireland. It is especially appalling that a Catholic institution would so blatantly go out of its way to choose to honor a man who, breaking his own promise, is standing firmly against the teachings of his own Catholic Church on abortion—but it’s not only Catholics who should be outraged. On April 30th, Kenny’s...

The House voted 90-30 for a compromise version of the bill reconciling differences between the two chambers, only hours after the Senate approved it, 28-10. The Republican governor is a strong abortion opponent, and supporters of the measure expect him to sign it into law so that the new restrictions take effect July 1. In addition to the bans...

    Hyping "growing support" for same-sex marriage, CNN's Carol Costello asked a supporter of California's Proposition 8 on Monday if he was "on the wrong side of history" for legally defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Her tone fits right with Friday's CNN panel where a traditional marriage supporter was disgustingly marginalized as a segregationist and compared to a slave owner. Costello cited GOP strategist Karl Rove admitting that he could see a Republican presidential candidate publicly support same-sex marriage in 2016. She then asked Austin Nimocks of the Alliance Defense Fund, "Austin, you heard what Karl Rove...

Wade, the 1973 ruling that established a constitutional right to abortion. Judges, lawyers and scholars have drawn varying lessons from that decision, with some saying that it was needlessly rash and created a culture war. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal and a champion of women’s rights, has long harbored doubts about the ruling. “It’s not that the judgment was wrong, but it moved too far,...

Sandford, declared an entire class of human beings beyond the protection of the laws; Roe v. Wade declared another class of human beings, the unborn, beyond legal protection.

    Video The official Democratic Party platform "strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay."Reason TV talked with Democratic delegates and supporters at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte and found that most were on board with the party's strong pro-choice stance. But when pressed to talk about whether or not they were pro-choice in areas of human activity beyond abortion, delegates and supporters seemed less certain and, at times, outright hostile to the notion of increased choice. Approximately 4 minutes.Produced by Paul...
  • Did Obamacare Ruling Overturn Roe v. Wade?

    Reason's Thought, a blog of Townhall ^ | August 23, 2012 | reasonmclucus
    Those arguing over the constitutionality of Obamacare have consistently ignored the fact that Obamacare conflicts with the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade. The Court's decision to uphold Obamacare may provide statements that could be used to justify regulating and possibly even prohibiting abortion. The Court wouldn't need to refer to Roe v. Wade to in effect overturn it. The justices could inadvertently overturn Roe v. Wade by making statements that conflict with it. Attorneys could use such conflicts to argue that Roe v. Wade is no longer consistent with the Court's interpretation of the Constitution. I'm going to...
  • NAPOLITANO: Akin absurdity aside, rape never justifies abortion

    The Washington Times ^ | August 22, 2012 | Andrew P. Napolitano
    The criticisms of the recent absurd comments by Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin, who at this writing is his party’s nominee to take on incumbent Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in November in a contest he had been expected to win, have focused on his clearly erroneous understanding of the human female anatomy. In a now infamous statement, in which he used the bizarre and unheard-of phrase “legitimate rape,” the congressman gave the impression that some rapes of women are not mentally or seriously resisted. This is an antediluvian and misogynistic myth for which there is no basis in fact...
  • Now is the time for courage (Akin, abortion)

    Exclusive: Janet Porter joins pro-life leaders as they stand with Rep. Todd Akin Want to know why the Republican Party is in such trouble? I believe it comes down to one word: courage. When Democrats misspeak, we make them vice president. When Republicans misspeak, Republicans are the first in line to throw them under the bus. When Rep. Todd Akin stood for protecting all innocent human life in a recent interview, he used a word with more than one meaning. He used the word “legitimate” before the word “rape” to mean “real,” “forcible,” a tragic event that “really took place.”...

    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Although I believe your organization is no longer necessary and is on the balance harmful to race relations in America, I am nonetheless honored to speak to you tonight. I am honored to speak to you because I recall the days when the NAACP was committed to racial equality. I recall many fine victories during the struggle for civil rights, which was coming to a head when I was a young boy living in Mississippi. Those victories could not have been secured without a firm commitment to First Amendment principles, including the right to...
  • A Fuzzy Workaround for Roe v. Wade

    05/22/2012 7:42:51 PM PDT · by GarthVader · 5 replies
    Why did the Catholic Church wait until 1992 to pardon Galileo? Answer: the Pope is no mere president, the Church hierarchy no mere Congress. They cannot simply change opinion. They derive their authority from a higher, infallible authority. To admit error, is to question the Church’s connection to the higher authority, and thus undermine the institution. The Supreme Court is in a similar position. The Court is no mere legislature, free to change its mind through personnel turnover or popular demands. The Court seeks Truth, the meaning of the Constitution. At the very least, it must maintain the pretense that...

    AUSTIN -- Crowds carried hundreds of signs in protest of abortion as they marched up Congress Avenue. For decades the Texas Rally for Life has brought people from all across the state to the steps of the capitol. The Texas Rally for Life brought close to 3,000 people marching through downtown Austin Saturday afternoon. Crowds listened as anti-abortion leaders urged them to spread their message to everyone. Keynote speaker Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott explained how he learned the beauty of life when he lost the ability to walk. Those who took part said the polarizing issue of abortion should...
  • Missouri sees lowest number of abortions since Roe v Wade

    JEFFERSON CITY, January 25, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - According to newly released State Department of Health figures, Missouri women had 1,019 fewer abortions in 2010 than in the previous year – a 9.4 percent decline. The 9,796 abortions performed on Missouri women in 2010 marks the first time these numbers were below 10,000 since 1973, the year Roe v. Wade was decided. The peak year was 1980 when 21,671 Missouri women had abortions. The one-year 9.4 percent reduction was greater than the decrease in the five previous years combined (down 8.9 percent from 2004-2009). Kansas health officials report that the number...
