Belying Emily Letts’ “good abortion” Words: Her Face UPDATE

Emily Letts

Kathy Schiffer calls a video of Emily Letts getting an abortion "weird", and if all you take into account is this young woman's words, they are weird; they make almost no sense.“I know that sounds weird, but to me, this was as birth-like as it could be. It will always be a special memory for me. I still have my sonogram, and if my apartment were to catch fire, it would be the first thing I’d grab.”If you let yourself become distracted by what is coming from her mouth, you miss all that is … [Read more...]

Savage’s Abortion Facetiousness vs DeBlasio’s Determination

My email filled up yesterday with people carrying on about Dan Savage, and his absurd off-the-cuff remarks delivered during a "Festival of Dangerous Ideas". If you missed it, here's what he said:C'mon, that's a toss-off; he's clearly not serious but merely playing to a goofy crowd eager to think of itself as subversive and brave and oh, so intellectual, by listening to "dangerous ideas" that are not dangerous at all. To say "Population Control! Too many people on the planet!" to that … [Read more...]

When the Strange God Wins, You Kill Yourself

late term abortion

A recent post dealt with the growing trend of (presumably adult) people, feeling entitled to express open displeasure at the public existence of children and their parents, or -- as one contributor to the New York Times Magazine put it -- "These wan goons. . .bringing their squealing offspring to brunch or for clogging up the sidewalk..."The same issue featured this letter to the editor, written by "Carolyn" in Maryland:Five years ago I faced an unwanted pregnancy. At the time, I had a … [Read more...]

Is MSM Awareness of Gosnell a Wave in Tide of God’s Mercy? UPDATE

It has been, as Ed Driscoll notes a slow awakening for the mainstream media, but now that they are reading the Grand Jury reports on Kermit Gosnell and the testimony at his trial, some members of the press are saying yes, this story deserves covering and in fact demands it from many angles. Perhaps no one has touched on the crux of the thing like Seth Mandel at Commentary:The media should be ashamed beyond description for this behavior. The American left should come to terms with what it … [Read more...]

Whaddya want, more COMMONERS in the world?

He has been writing an important series on culture, class and the decline of marriage on his blog, but Ross Douthat's latest column in the New York Times is getting a lot of attention, as it is a rather thoughtful look at the propensity of Ivy-League alums to seek out Ivy-League mates, and how it affects the nation:Of course Ivy League schools double as dating services. Of course members of elites — yes, gender egalitarians, the males as well as the females — have strong incentives to marry o … [Read more...]

Sanger’s Racist Genocidal Plans and The Masque of the Red Death

I haven't commented about the creepy "Happy Anniversary Video" celebrating 40 years since Roe v. Wade; the suave African American man, holding a rose and cooing about the wonder of this anniversary really is, as Marc Barnes writes, "the creepiest sh*t..."If you haven't seen the video, you should go to Marc's place and watch. One of the truly chilling (and, yes, creepy)things about it is that for African Americans, abortion in America has been a true genocide. As we learned last week, in New … [Read more...]

Think you’ve heard it all about abortion? Then think again!

(image courtesy of shutterstock.com)Someone asked me, recently, what I thought the status is of the pro-life movement, and I said, "sort of stagnant." Different polling shows different data (and as Sr. Mary Ann Walsh noted at the USCCB Media Blog, "it's all in how you ask the questions") but whether anything is really changing is anyone's guess and tactics -- on both sides -- are awfully stale and predictable. When it is politically expedient for them to do so, the pro-abortion side hauls … [Read more...]

“There’s Gold in Them Thar Wombs!”: Cuomo Chases it Down

shutterstock_38612578_newborn

Not everyone is into political issues, or keeps up with them, and my husband has a limited attention span for news articles on issues that have promised "nothing new" for the last few decades. For that reason, and although he is strongly pro-life, articles touching on the issue rarely get his attention: there's a lot of yelling on all sides, but few if any saying anything new.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is helping to change that, by saying something new, extreme, and rather shocking, and … [Read more...]

Obama, Planned Parenthood and his Daughters, Again

I don't mean to be a nudge, I really don't. But it's starting to creep me out, how much Obama loves Planned Parenthood, and how he clearly lives with the expectation that his daughters are going to kill his grandchildren, and negate the coming of love.“Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that is a bad idea,” Obama said. “I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices. We’re not going backwards, we’re going forwards.”Obama’s … [Read more...]

The Busy Servants of Moloch – UPDATED

When the "learning opportunity" of the Susan G. Komen/Planned Parenthood debacle was taking place, I wrote:[the past day's high drama had given] me a mental image of Moloch, enraged and stomping and roaring because there was a threat of less meat coming to his fire.Today, Moloch is appeased; the media’s heartbeat and respiration are returning to normal. They and their pals in DC can take a nice, deep cleansing breath and sit back and smile, understanding what they have just demonstrated … [Read more...]
