    To understand just how normalized radical ideas are on college campuses, look at the curriculum for which students pay thousands and thousands of dollars. From their first steps on campus for orientation to walking across the stage on graduation day, students are usually bombarded with leftist propaganda. College campuses facilitate the perfect environment for indoctrination, providing a platform for radical professors to teach their opinion as fact. As a young woman in college, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to stand behind conservative values in the face of leftist campus culture.Conservative parents are in a catch-22. While still...
  • Kelsey Grammer Says Reproductive Rights Is a ‘Dishonest’ Name for Abortion (Tr)

    (Full Title) Kelsey Grammer Stands Up For Life, Says Reproductive Rights Is a ‘Dishonest’ Name for Abortion We don’t see much common sense coming from Hollywood these days. It’s a place where conservatives have basically been told they aren’t welcome. However, every once in awhile we see conservatives who aren’t afraid to stand up for what’s right. Kelsey Grammar is one of those conservatives and he recently sat down for an interview that ended up being a strong defense of the pro-life movement. Grammer told the Times he has “as much respect for women and women’s issues as possible,” but...

    Because all progressives are fascist statists at heart. Back when Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, she realized that only the elimination of what she called “the mongrel peoples” would allow her to achieve her statist goals. Her organization was designed with population control in mind and those who didn’t measure up were to be ‘bred out’ of the population. Since then, progressives have done everything they can to pretend she’s a saint who wanted nothing more than to further women’s reproductive rights but, deep down, their totalitarian instincts still trend toward population control. These days, of course, it’s in the...

    Aristotle once wrote: “[T]he same attribute cannot at the same time belong and not belong to the same subject and in the same respect…. [I]t is impossible for the same man at the same time to believe the same thing to be and not to be” (Aristotle, 4:4). It is impossible, for example, for a single door to be completely shut and completely open at the same time. Likewise, it is contradictory for a man to say, “Yesterday I never left my house to go to the store,” if indeed he did leave his house yesterday to go to the...

A federal judge on Sunday temporarily blocked a new law that could see it shut down. (AP) JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A federal judge on Sunday temporarily blocked enforcement of a Mississippi law that could shut down the only abortion clinic in the state. U.S. District Judge Daniel P.

    JANET BAIRD writes: President Obama and the Department of Health and Inhuman Services, as you know, recently decreed that free sterilizations be available to all college-age women under Obamacare. But the truth is even more sinister. Note the wording of the HHS regulation. As reported at CNS news, ‘[a]ll Food and Drug Administration [(FDA)] approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity,’ as prescribed by a provider,” said the HHS description of the regulation. [emphasis added] This clause caught my eye, “for all women with reproductive capacity.” Have you thought about the...

    COLUMBUS – Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if state Sen. Nina Turner has her way. The Cleveland Democrat introduced Senate Bill 307 this week. A critic of efforts to restrict abortion and contraception for women, Turner says she is concerned about men’s reproductive health. Turner’s bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating men’s health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices through...

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Here's hoping that Warren Buffett isn't with us as chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. for much longer, or at least that he has a change of heart. The world will be better off. Nearly a year after Buffett pledged to give $37 billion of his personal wealth to charity, the 76-year-old and his shareholder flock at Berkshire (BRKA109,150.00, -25.00, 0.0%) shot down a series of do-gooder proposals that would have required the company to spare some profits in the name of social responsibility, and...

    In 1973, the Supreme Court, in Roe v. Wade, ruled invalid any law which would prevent a woman from terminating a pregnancy if she chooses. Let me say up front that I believe this to be the moral equivalent of thinning out the herd for most, since it seems to be one of the most fervent arguments of those who support this “right”. What will we do with all these unwanted babies? Who will pay for them? The government can’t do it all. Besides, I have the right to choose whether I want to have this baby, and it’s none...

    AlterNet ^ | 8/9/06 | By Jeffery M. Leving and Glenn Sacks
    In Kai Ma’s recent AlterNet column “The Difference Between a Womb and a Wallet” (7/26/06) she applauds a U.S. District Court judge’s quick, contemptuous dismissal of Matt Dubay’s “Roe v. Wade for Men” lawsuit. Dubay sought to wipe out the child support payments he is obligated to make to an ex-girlfriend who, he says, used a fallacious claim of infertility to deceive him into getting her pregnant. In opposing “Choice for Men,” Ma asserts that a “woman's decision to terminate a pregnancy is not the equivalent of a man's choice to financially opt out of fatherhood.” She cites the pain...

    NASHVILLE — The American Civil Liberties Union will likely appeal a recent ruling by a federal appeals court, which allows Tennessee to offer anti-abortion license plates bearing the message "Choose Life." A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati earlier this month overturned a lower-court ruling that said the tag illegally promoted only one side of the abortion debate. The ACLU and other plaintiffs have until Friday to file an appeal for a hearing before the 6th Circuit, according to Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee. They would have another week to...
  • Men's Reproductive Rights

    As our society has evolved, we have evaluated and addressed the individual rights of different groups. This has often resulted in more fair treatment of these groups and thus benefited society, in other circumstances however this has marginalized the rights and roles of other groups. In no instance is this more apparent than in men’s lack of reproductive rights. In an episode of “Sex in the City” the character Miranda is impregnated. When Miranda learns of her pregnancy, she decides to have an abortion. Due to the “complexity” of this decision, Miranda also decides not to tell the father of...

    JEFFERSON CITY - Some Republican legislators want to charge unwed fathers thousands of dollars for hospital birth costs incurred by low-income mothers on Medicaid. "But the last time I checked, it takes two people to make a baby. And there is some responsibility, not just for child support, but for the cost of bringing that child successfully into the world," said Shields, R-St. Joseph. Medicaid pays for 43 percent of the births in Missouri. At an average cost of $3,286 a birth, the tab hit $120.6 million last year. Nearly two-thirds of the moms on Medicaid are unmarried. Critics say...

    Sen. Barbara Boxer says women will die President Bush nominates a pro-life judge to the Supreme Court. Five thousand women a year will die if President Bush nominates a pro-life judge to the Supreme Court — that's the claim of liberal U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. And it's just a sample of the ramped-up rhetoric you can expect as Bush prepares to nominate a replacement for the retiring Sandra Day O'Connor. Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, said Boxer's claim of 5,000 deaths, made to an Associated Press reporter, pure fantasy. "Senator Boxer's reliance on...
