    In September of 1960, on the campus of DePauw University in Indiana, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a keynote speaker for “School for the Prophets” at Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church. King’s message to Methodist clergy of Indiana was based on a sermon he had previously given, called “Paul’s Letter to American Christians.” King looked to St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans and contemplated: “America, as I look at you from afar, I wonder whether your moral and spiritual progress has been commensurate with your scientific progress.” He told his audience, “Black supremacy is as dangerous as white...

    Nearly a quarter of Democrat voters say they would vote for a candidate based solely on their abortion position, an NBC News poll released Friday found. Twenty-four percent of Democrats said they would base their vote on abortion when asked if “any one issue [is] so important that you would vote for or against a candidate solely on that basis.” The survey was conducted November 10-14 with 1,000 registered voters and has an overall margin of error of ±3.1 percentage points. “The poll also finds that the highest share of single-issue women voters (22 percent) say abortion is their top...
  • Is Post-Roe America More Pro-Life, or Less?

    You’ve undoubtedly heard that Republicans have found themselves, as Caroline Vakil relates over at The Hill, in “political quicksand when it comes to abortion,” evidenced by underwhelming performances at the polls since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The end of Roe was a pyrrhic victory for Republicans, say both forlorn conservative squishes and giddy leftist pundits. The suggestion by both is that Republicans underestimated Americans’ appetite for laws allowing babies to be slaughtered in the womb by the tens of thousands each year. SNIP>>>>>>>>>> Among these voices is Jon A. Shields at The Atlantic. He suggests that “abortion...

    With Tuesday’s election results in Ohio and Virginia seen as a referendum on the pro-life movement from pundits across the political spectrum—a point that was reiterated in Wednesday’s Republican debate—it’s understandable that many are feeling discouraged. After all, it took nearly fifty years to overturn Roe v. Wade but abortions have actually increased since that monumental decision.Moreover, the expansion of abortion options has won in every state that has voted on the subject, a trend that is likely to continue across the coming years. Given that roughly 69 percent of Americans support at least some access to abortion during the...

    As expressed in a comment and somewhat revised here, the premise behind the typical justificatory arguments for abortion (“respecting individual autonomy and the right to make decisions about one's own body,” “negative consequences on public health,” “the freedom to choose what's best for them”) is that the unborn at any time of abortion is not a human person, even though it will be rather quickly very manifest to be one indeed. Even if someone you invited into your car or house secretly brings a child with them without your consent, then you simply do not have the right to exterminate...

    On Tuesday, pro-abortion organizations began to urge Arizona voters to create a constitutional right to abortion, a trend occurring in several battleground states in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision.According to The Washington Post, the ballot initiative is spearheaded by several major pro-abortion organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona, NARAL Arizona, Affirm Sexual and Reproductive Health, Arizona List, and Healthcare Rising Arizona. Abortions in the state are currently limited to 15 weeks.Pro-abortion Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs reportedly said that she was “confident that Arizonans will vote for reproductive freedom next...

    Donning a T-shirt with the message “Say NO to child support #ProChoiceMen,” pro-life advocate AJ Hurley trolled the Women’s March on Saturday in Washington, D.C. to expose abortion activists’ hypocrisy. Hurley posed as a male abortion activist at the march, using a megaphone to shout phrases like “Your body, your problem!” and “Keep your womb off my wallet” at the crowd. His stunt was part of Live Action’s new satirical video series #ProChoiceMen. The Women’s March supposedly focuses on rights and protections for women, but Hurley’s protest exposed how its support for abortion does the opposite. According to Live Action,...

    Representative Nancy Mace (R-SC) told CBS News Thursday that the Republican Party’s stance on abortion will cost them votes in 2024. Mace said, “I think it’s going to mean more losses, and I don’t believe that my party has learned anything from 2022 from the midterms. We saw this issue rear its head after Roe was overturned. I was one of the few Republicans that was doing national media talking about and need to build consensus. I read multiple op-eds. I’ve done multiple interviews on the issue. I’m in a bellwether district, and I see the pulse of everyday Americans...

    A Texas woman is accused of trying to force her pregnant teenage daughter to take abortion pills, according to the Laredo Police Department. Juana Idalia Sanchez, 49, was arrested after officers responded to a domestic disturbance on April 2, the Laredo Morning Times reported Wednesday. “A 16-year-old female stated that she informed her mother on March 30 that she was pregnant…Her mother got upset and asked her to have an abortion. She stated that her mother chased her around the home causing her to fall on her stomach…” the report states, citing an arrest affidavit. Sanchez allegedly pinned her daughter...

    Patriarchal representative also calls for abortion inducing drugs to be banned.The Patriarchal Commission on Family, Motherhood and Childhood Protection of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) proposes to introduce criminal penalties for inducing or forcing a woman to perform an abortion in clinics. Priest Fyodor Lukyanov, representing the Church, addressed a crowd of pediatricians at a recent medical forum. "It is necessary to provide for punishment for inducing abortion,” he said. He also promoted toughening the law against non-doctors inducing an abortion by increasing the maximum amount of fines from the current 80 thousand rubles to 150 thousand rubles, and the...

    Women face many possible illnesses during pregnancy, but intentional feticide is never necessary even in the worst-case scenarios.As many states are fighting to codify abortion law, one of the greatest lies spread by the pro-abortion left in America today is that we need to intentionally end the life of an unborn baby in order to save the mother’s life in many of these cases.Women face many possible illnesses during pregnancy, including premature rupture of membranes, severely high blood pressure, diabetes, hemorrhaging, cancers, and heart disease. As an obstetrician-gynecologist who used to provide abortions early in my training, I know that...

    The Republican senator wanted to make a point about America’s COVID policies compared to the rest of the world. On Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul wanted to know if the dean of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing was ‘pro-choice.’ ‘Are you pro-choice in regards to patients making individualized medical choices?” Paul asked Dr. Sarah Szanton. “Broadly, thank you, yes,” Szanton replied. Paul was beginning a larger discussion to note that other nations have enjoyed more medical freedoms than most Americans have had. “Are you aware that your university doesn’t allow choice with regard to vaccination, that you require all of your...

    This old-timer has a libido bigger than his bank account. A former Wilhelmina model claims her on-again-off-again octogenarian beau persuaded her to ditch her career, rent-stabilized Chelsea apartment, and move into his sprawling Rye home — where he sometimes demanded sex a staggering 10 times a day, according to a Manhattan Supreme Court suit. Janet Bedin, 68, claims Vito Verni, 84, pulled an emotional bait-and-switch between the beginning of 2019 and end of 2021 “when they lived together as a couple” in the 5,000-square-foot Westchester manse, the suit says. Bedin is now suing Verni for $80 million, charging a laundry...

    Illinois users of the internet can hardly open a YouTube video without first being greeted by an ad from Governor J.B. “Second Helping” Pritzker, calling Senator Darren Bailey an “extremist” for his position on abortion. We can’t turn on the television without seeing an ad from our local Democrat state legislative candidates (in my case, it’s the incredibly deceptive Mary Beth Canty and Anne Gillespie), accusing their Republican opponents of attacking a woman’s “right to choose.” Perhaps it’s time to sort out just what “extremist” policy really is, where abortion and other issues are concerned, so we can tell who...

    DETROIT (AP) — A judge on Wednesday struck down Michigan's 1931 anti-abortion law, months after suspending it, the latest development over abortion rights in a state where the issue is being argued in courtrooms and, possibly, at the ballot box. The law, which was long dormant before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, violates the Michigan Constitution, said Judge Elizabeth Gleicher. “A law denying safe, routine medical care not only denies women of their ability to control their bodies and their lives — it denies them of their dignity,” Gleicher of the Court of Claims wrote....

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that while he is pro-choice and thinks abortion isn’t murder, it’s wrong to say pro-life people are anti-women, because if you think abortion is murder, you can’t say, “well, except for people with a vagina, they can commit murder.” And pushed back against arguments that pro-life people shouldn’t impose their values by saying, “you wouldn’t say that about a murderer. That’s what their point is.” Maher said, “I’m more pro-choice than you can imagine. I don’t think life is always precious, most people don’t think that. What I’m saying...

    Lena Dunham swerves directly into the culture wars, whether she means to or not. Critics X-rayed her HBO series, Girls, during its six-year run over every sexual taboo and revelation. She used a sexual metaphor to tell voters to pull the lever for President Barack Obama in 2012. And her recent clothing line for larger women got hammered in the press for not being woke enough. Dunham’s newest project, Sharp Stick, is heading in the same direction. Except this time it’s clear the film’s co-star and creator is cheering it on. The film follows a 20-something woman named Sarah Jo...

    Alan Dershowitz slammed Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on Fox News moments after the congresswoman demonized people who are pro-choice. Appearing on Friday’s Hannity, Boebert told a whopper to guest host Gregg Jennings, stating that “genocide squad” progressives want abortion even when it comes to babies that have been birthed.......... Dershowitz said he opposes protesting justices at restaurants and their homes, but then ripped into Boebert for her remarks: Look, I oppose the reversal of Roe v. Wade. I think, by the way, what Congresswoman Bobert said – calling people on my side of the issue the “genocide squad” and saying...
  • Pro-abortion demonstration signs highlight ignorance, inanity, vulgarity: An extraordinarily high percentage of the signs are mind-bogglingly dumb and/or nonsensical.

    An extraordinarily high percentage of the signs wielded by pro-abortion demonstrators are mind-bogglingly dumb and/or nonsensical. One of these inane sentiments (see below) has prompted me to write this post. That sign/sentiment? ”Guns have more rights than my vagina.” Really? Let’s examine the facts. First of all, it must be noted, the vast majority of gun owners don’t stick a penis in their gun’s barrel and climax in it. They do have to subject themselves to a thorough background check by the feds, answer more than a dozen probing questions, fill out a 2-page form, and hand over several hundred...
