An Ethically-Produced Shingles Vaccine?

Many pro-lifers still decline to use any vaccine that was not ethically derived, choosing instead to face the risk of contracting and spreading preventable, often fatal diseases. Whatever is keeping Americans from taking full advantage of vaccines, this potential new shingles vaccine is a step in the right direction, and pro-lifers are rightly heartened by the possible advent of at least one ethically-derived vaccine. It's a bit early to celebrate, though. Read the rest at the … [Read more...]

Why it’s important to beat up robots

Was it a senseless tragedy, or was it a slice of richly deserved jungle justice when the hitchBOT, a hitchhiking "robot" (actually just a vaguely humanoid prop with a computer chip in it) got curbstomped by some jackass in an Eagles jersey, ending a sojourn over two continents?We can probably all agree that an adult who beats up someone else's robot for no reason is a jerk. Fine. But what about when kids beat up robots? Are they just jerks in training? Or are they onto something?Tech Insi … [Read more...]

Abortion Is a Men’s Issue

In great men, two traits go together: strength and control. Power, and the knowledge of how to use that power, and when, and why.There's no merit in producing testosterone; but there is great merit, for the whole world, when men learn how to use it, and when they learn how to be in control of it, rather than letting it control them. Great men know when to hold their strength in check, and how to use it for the right things. Great men use their strength to protect.Read the rest at the Re … [Read more...]

But what will poor people do if Planned Parenthood is defunded?

On Wednesday, NH voted to withdraw nearly $650,000 of state funding from Planned Parenthood. Even the pro-choice legislatures of our state have long chafed against funding the top-heavy, corrupt, inefficient monolith of Planned Parenthood -- not because we love babies, but because we hate wasting money.Naturally, people concerned about the poor are upset about the vote to defund, because Planned Parenthood is like the classic abusive boyfriend: They've got us convinced that we need them, we'r … [Read more...]

NH Defunds Planned Parenthood!

Yes, the videos are working.  And yes, it helps when you write to your rep! Or at least it seems to have worked in my state of NH, where the executive council just voted to snatch $639,000 in state funding away from Planned Parenthood. That accounts for about a third of their public funding. (Their federal funding is, of course, untouched.) The $639,000 will go to four other health clinics.According to the local TV news site: Republican councilor Chris Sununu was at the center of attention W … [Read more...]

Pro-Lifers Should Offer Help and Hope Along with Undercover Videos

Many Americans call themselves pro-choice, but are uncomfortable with unlimited abortion on demand, and these videos could help tip the balance in their hearts. But even as we hope and pray that the videos accomplish this conversion, let's not forget another large population of Americans, whose hearts matter just as much: the population of women who have had abortions. ***Read the rest at the Register. … [Read more...]
