Wow, kindness abounds…

This kitten will be the only thin compared to Hitler in your comments from this moment on.

... So I've been sort of laying low for a bit because I didn't know how my post below would be received. Writing it was, ironically, a bit like giving birth. The labor was long - 6 whole months! - and so much emotional energy and physical exertion was poured into writing it that I needed some recovery time afterwards. So I hit publish, turn off my laptop, and took a nap.Oh, and I also went to the ER yesterday morning. I was bitten by a spider three days ago while working in my garden and it … [Read more...]

Fifteen years later and silent no more…

... The bumper sticker read, “Having an abortion does not make you un-pregnant, it makes you the mother of a dead baby”. The word "mother" struck me because “mother” is such a powerful word. It conjures many meanings, and when a woman becomes one she is fundamentally changed. “Mother” as a verb means to nurture, care for and protect. “Mother” as a noun means a female person who is pregnant with or gives birth to a child; or a female person whose egg unites with sperm, resulting in the conception … [Read more...]

Contraceptives in the rain…

When a new synthetic substance is created, or a naturally occurring substance is generated at greatly increased levels, the effects can be far longer-lasting and wider-reaching than its manufacturers predict or intend. Some well-known examples of this include asbestos, a popular insulation and flame retardant in the late 19th century, which was later discovered to be carcinogenic; and polystyrene foams like Styrofoam, which is frequently used in disposable packaging, yet takes hundreds of years … [Read more...]

... 'Feel Good Friday' presents two videos and one post.Every time a child is aborted love is denied. Below you'll find the story of Lacey Buchanan, and her son, Christian. Prepare yourself.Brandon Vogt possibly has the cutest kid ever. Except for mine, who enjoyed horrifying Evangelicals in his younger years. From the looks of this video, young Isaiah may have a vocation.And lastly, May is the month we honor Mary but it's also Mental Health Awareness Month. A Long Beach … [Read more...]

The Smug Hubris of Sebelius, Who Can’t Be Bothered With Constitutional Laws…

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 27, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - As the battle continues against the Obama administration’s contraception mandate, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius visibly clashed in a hearing Thursday with pro-life House lawmakers, who compelled the secretary to admit she hadn’t reviewed case law on religious liberty before issuing the rule.Sebelius appeared before the House Education and Workforce Committee where she was grilled by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Car … [Read more...]

Komen and Planned Parenthood kiss and make up…

Bitch Please!

... Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood does not offer cancer screening services like mammograms, Komen has decided to reward PP's vicious bullying tactics by continuing grants to 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates.Grants from the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure are flowing to Planned Parenthood, as the women’s health organizations seek to rebuild their relationship after the controversy in February over the breast cancer charity’s unsuccessful attempt to defund Planned Par … [Read more...]

“Save The Storks” and other guerrilla anti-choice tactics…

26 (1)

Sometimes liberals make it all too easy, there’s almost no sport in it anymore. Take this entry from Feministing.(If you see this bus driving around–please run and call a friend. It’s full of people that want to force their scary beliefs on to you)On the spot ultrasounds seem to be taking the anti-choice country by storm. First, in Texas, where there is a rogue van called “Save the Storks” that is driving around and randomly offering those that are pregnant ultrasounds.Yes. Run and … [Read more...]

Why I’m not up in arms over Planned Parenthood’s 40 days of “prayer”…

your lame attempts at hipness and piety make me giggle

... I just don't give a rip, to do so would give their efforts a credence they don't deserve. Yeah, it's in poor taste - a obvious distortion and mockery of the 40 Days For Life campaign - but when has Planned Parenthood ever acted in good taste? They are never going to "stay classy".I mean, really... look at these guys.Pathetic and laughable; certainly not anything Satanic. Again, that would suggest their prayers would be in the slightest bit effective. Which they aren't. … [Read more...]

China’s ghost children…

Li Tianbing

Artist Li Tianbing paints imaginary siblings and talks about China's one child policy;"But Li's paintings of children were not just a recreation of his own childhood identity, but an exploration of what was happening in China. The one-child policy, he says, has had unimagined consequences. "There are the hidden children," he says."They can't go to school, because they don't officially exist. In the big cities, there's a market. Children can be bought and sold. They disappear."Li … [Read more...]
