Aid cut…

leave a comment »

The Trump administration yesterday announced a  massive expansion  of the pro-life Mexico City Policy, issuing guidelines,  which means health care aid to all international groups performing or promoting abortions will be cut.

It doesn’t mean that the nearly nine billion in international health care aid will be reduced,  but that the aforementioned groups won’t get any of it.  Cue the shrieking about Trump destroying reproductive health and rights and hating women the world over.

Infanticide of Down’s babies…

leave a comment »

What is the difference  between a  Sharia judge ordering ISIS to kill all children with Down’s Syndrome and those in the West who support abortion of these less-than-perfect children?   Not much,  as far as I can see.

I know several children afflicted with this syndrome,  and they are all very sweet and childlike in their limited understanding of the world.   They require more care than ordinary children,  but their love is just as strong and their existence just as valid.

Abortion – slavery comparison…

leave a comment »

David French makes a  compelling case  for claiming Dr. Ben Carson was correct to compare abortion to slavery.   Read it and see what you think.

She’s baaack!

You remember Wendy Davis,  the pink-sneakered abortion enthusiast who talked forever on the Texas Senate floor?   The one who accused her gubernatorial opponent Gregg Abbott of exploiting his paralysis for political gain,   and subsequently lost to now-Governor Abbott by 20 points and a million votes?

Well,  she’s back,  still for unlimited abortion rights,  and accusing a male patriarchy of  keeping women down.   Why does she deserve a second act,  when the first one was so damned awful?

Humane procedure?

leave a comment »

Priscilla Smith is the director of Yale Law School’s Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice, but is better known as an  ardent abortion advocate who defended partial-birth abortions at the Supreme Court.

Even so,  how could she or any sane person claim that a dismemberment abortion is  a humane  procedure?   Simple — destroy whatever moral compass you might possess and discount any life you find inconvenient.

Switzerland is Kevorkian…

leave a comment »

I used to think of the Swiss as being sensible people,  but I can no longer sustain  that view  when it is illegal to flush a live goldfish down a toilet,  but perfectly legal to kill someone who is perfectly healthy,  yet wishes to die.

There is something fundamentally wrong with a society which values goldfish over humans,  don’t you think?   Just as there is something wrong with American culture which worries more about a lion’s death than the illegal sale of baby body parts.

You only have until Monday…

…to tell the Obama Administration  that requiring  faith-based charities to refer refugee children for abortions is a contravention of the rights of parents and a violation of the conscience rights of faith-based groups helping resettle the children.  You can comment  here.

You might also add that fast-tracking rules issued on Christmas Eve is evidence that the Administration knows what it is attempting is wrong, and that you are watching it as it continues its onslaught against all non-Islamic religions.
