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

Woman_receives_mammogram_(2)

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...]

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

sad-505857_1280

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...]

Figure_of_pregnant_woman,_Cameroon_-_Staatliches_Museum_für_Völkerkunde_München_-_DSC08442

 1. You may know where the baby is going to come out, but your joints aren't sure. So they alllllll relax, all over your body, just in case you need to prepare for, for instance, a mandibular delivery. On the up side, the spectacle of you trying to get out of a car with your useless, floppy puppet legs is hilarious, and will win you many admirers. Among jerks.2. Doesn't matter if it's a penny, a pork chop, or the last existing original copy of the Declaration of Independence wrapped … [Read more...]

i'm so tired

If you're new at being pregnant -- if this, for instance, only your sixth or seventh child -- you probably know how many weeks along you are.  You will be able to recite exactly which fetal neurodendons are likely being formed at this moment, and can calculate to the minute how far away your due date is.If this is, however, your ninth pregnancy or beyond, you take the longer view:  all you can really be sure about is whether or not your water has broken yet.  Not  yet?  Okay, then you gotta m … [Read more...]

Are WHO and UNICEF secretly sterilizing Kenyan women with a tetanus vaccine? Maybe, but probably not.

Last week, the bishops of Kenya accused the WHO and UNICEF of secretly lacing a tetanus vaccine with a hormone intended to induce miscarriage and sterility in Kenyan women of childbearing age, in an effort to reduce the population. The bishops issued a press release, saying: [W]e shall not waver in calling upon all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination campaign laced with Beta-HCG, because we are convinced that  it is indeed a disguised population control programme.

PIC Wallace on train  The train is whizzing out of control, and he can't get off, slow down, or change course. In desperation, Gromit snatches a box of spare tracks and frantically lays them on the floor ahead, just split seconds before the train he's on thunders over them.

Believe it or not, having ten kids changes you.

Baby #1: Uh oh, I think the jelly I had on my toast yesterday might have had some GMOs in it. I better call my midwife ... if I can get myself to admit to her what I did. I wonder if she will want to run some tests to make sure everything is still okay. No, wait, tests are bad, too! Oh, I've ruined everything, I've ruined the baby, and I haven't even given birth yet! Baby #10: Someone call your father and tell him we are out of wine.Read the rest at the Register.    … [Read more...]
