  • Texas Legislature passes 'Heartbeat' anti-abortion bill

    State lawmakers on Thursday gave final approval to legislation that would ban abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy and allow anyone to sue doctors and others who violate the guidelines. The bill, a priority for Republicans this session, now heads to Gov. Greg Abbott for an expected signature. It would take effect on September 1. Proponents hope that by turning enforcement of the new guidelines over to everyday citizens, rather than a government agency, they can avoid the legal delays that have come from so-called “heartbeat bills” in other red states. Under the proposal, abortions would be prohibited...

    For a program broadcast on a taxpayer-funded network, much of its contents seemed one-sided, even for PBS. It also ignores underlying political currentsA recent PBS special on end-of-life care raises important policy and philosophical questions about a subject many Americans avoid. But the special, entitled “When My Time Comes” and hosted by former NPR host Diane Rehm — who wrote a book with the same title last year — offers a troubling set of answers.Rehm came to the end-of-life issue from personal experience. Her first husband, John Rehm, died in 2014 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. The...

    Came across this YouTube video not long ago. I feel she makes a lot of good points? Was very surprising. I felt well informed. It seems Jordan Peterson really just doesn't know what he's talking about sometimes. Though she's an environmentalist, she seems to have a nice little channel going that deserves more attention.
  • Journalists Andrew Kaczynski and Rachel Ensign open up about losing 9-month-old daughter to rare brain cancer

    Journalists Andrew Kaczynski and Rachel Ensign endured a loss that no parent should ever have to on Christmas Eve when their 9-month-old daughter Francesca died of complications from a rare pediatric brain cancer. Prior to being diagnosed with Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor, Ensign told "The View" Tuesday that their daughter, lovingly called "Beans," was a "very healthy, happy, lively baby" until she began uncontrollably vomiting one night. A pediatric urgent care identified her symptoms as nothing more than a stomach bug, but parental instincts told Kaczynski and Ensign it "felt like it was more" than a stomach bug. When they...
  • Remembering Knute Rockne and team sports and life and President Trump. (A personal post.)

    03/04/2021 9:44:10 AM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 5 replies
    Knute Rockne said he chose his "best eleven" not his "eleven best". The team was vital but the choice was made by the coach. And the quarterback and pitcher are still the ones credited with wins. Donald Trump is now, perhaps, America's first real leader of the opposition. A team leader who really stands out. But all the people he represents are a team much much bigger than he is.

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has signed Senate Bill 10 into law, repealing a 1969 statue that criminalized abortion. “A woman has the right to make decisions about her own body,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said. “Anyone who seeks to violate bodily integrity, or to criminalize womanhood, is in the business of dehumanization. New Mexico is not in that business – not any more. Our state statutes now reflect this inviolable recognition of humanity and dignity. I am incredibly grateful to the tireless advocates and legislators who fought through relentless misinformation and fear-mongering to make this day a reality. Equality...

    Cue the late-night jokes. Hillary Clinton has penned a political thriller titled “State of Terror” about a fictional secretary of state, she revealed Tuesday. In a statement first reported by Axios, the former Obama secretary of state and failed 2016 presidential candidate announced that the book would be released in October by Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press. In the novel, “a novice Secretary of State joins the administration of her rival.

    SKY News ^ | February 19, 2021 | By Isabel Webster
    A radical new approach to abortion has taken place in the UK in the last year. For the first time in history, an estimated 100,000 women have been able to have abortions at home. The government must now decide if this "special measure" - designed to help women "stay home and protect the NHS" by keeping them out of clinics during the pandemic - should remain as a permanent abortion option for women. There hasn't been much public debate about the changes - so I want to know what the implications are on safety and efficacy. And, since abortion remains...
  • Unexpected Life: Strange Creatures Accidentally Discovered Far Beneath Antarctica’s Ice Shelves

    Far underneath the ice shelves of the Antarctic, there’s more life than expected, finds a recent study in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science. During an exploratory survey, researchers drilled through 900 meters of ice in the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf, situated on the south eastern Weddell Sea. At a distance of 260km away from the open ocean, under complete darkness and with temperatures of -2.2°C, very few animals have ever been observed in these conditions. But this study is the first to discover the existence of stationary animals — similar to sponges and potentially several previously unknown species — attached...

    Question Do the COVID-19 vaccines contain aborted fetal cells? Answer from infectious diseases expert James Lawler, MD No, the COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any aborted fetal cells. However, Pfizer and Moderna did perform confirmation tests (to ensure the vaccines work) using fetal cell lines. But it's important to have the full context: Fetal cell lines are not the same as fetal tissue. Fetal cell lines are cells that grow in a laboratory. They descend from cells taken from elective abortions in the 1970s and 1980s. Those individual cells from the 1970s and 1980s have since multiplied into many new...

    January 13, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The primary uses of the propaganda campaign to bully the public into thinking President Donald Trump “incited” the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week are obvious: whip up enough fear and anger at the president to impeach and bar him from running again in 2024, divide Republican officeholders who have kept Trump’s base at arm’s length, and create a pretense to expand their war on dissenting social media voices. But there’s one more target that has largely gone overlooked, and it’s slated to descend on the nation’s capital in less than three weeks.Friday, January...

    The current president of Planned Parenthood is unafraid to use the word "abortion." In a Christmas-season interview with The Washington Post, Alexis McGill Johnson scolded those who would downplay the importance of abortion in her organization's work. She says it is "stigmatizing" to do so. For those who oppose abortion, this is a cause for gratitude. For decades, abortion has been subject to euphemisms from its advocates. "Choice," "freedom," "health," are all used to avoid saying the actual word "abortion." Which makes sense: Polls consistently suggest Americans don't like abortion. And why should we? We know in our hearts that...

    Life in the Year 1999. Fascinating video made in 1967. Lots of predictions that came true too! As predicted in the year 1967. Basically a glorified commercial for Philco-Ford, it does reflect the optimism of that time that technology would make life better. Such predictions at that time normally thought technology would change rapidly while our social relationships would remain static. Attempting to peer into the future is always a fools effort, since we are all children of our time, even those of us who are highly critical of our time. The past is a different country and the future...

    A federal judge in California ordered the video journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s practices in the harvesting and sales of aborted baby body parts to pay the abortion giant $13.6 million to cover its legal costs in its case against them. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Orrick III ordered David Daleiden and his associates at Center for Medical Progress (CMP) to pay $13.6 million over the $2 million in damages they were ordered to pay last year for recording the abortion vendor’s officials while they discussed how they harvest the fetal tissue for sale. Daleiden and his advocates have...

Joined by 34 other countries, the document enshrines the Trump administration’s pro-life diplomacy on the official record of the General Assembly. “The United States strongly supports the dignity of all human beings and protecting life from the moment of conception throughout the lifespan,” Ambassador Kelly Craft wrote to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres transmitting the Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family.
