South Dakota House OKs Bill to Ban Nearly All Abortions

Friday, February 24th, 2006

Yippie!
Governor Mike Rounds has a spine:
“I’ve indicated I’m pro-life and I do believe abortion is wrong, and that we should do everything we can to save lives,” Rounds said. “If this bill accomplishes that, then I am inclined to sign the bill into law.”
The bill makes exceptions for pregnancies that threathen the life of […]

China’s Sexual Devolution

Monday, December 12th, 2005

An article in The Independent presents to us a glimpse of what a “sexual revolution” can do to a society:

A survey by Li Yinhe, China’s only female sexologist, shows that 70 per cent of Beijingers have had pre-marital sex, compared with 15.5 per cent in 1989. In the major cities, the average age at which […]

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

According to the Anchorage Daily News, Alaskans for Life is bringing a suit against Aurora Productions which hosts the Alaska Women’s Show each year.

Guess the Author

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

We’re going to play “Guess the Author.” Won’t you play along?
Quote 1:
“While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or […]

I was under the impression…

Friday, July 29th, 2005

…that Senator Frist was pro-life…and here he supports funding medical research that takes the lives of preborn humans.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist on Friday threw his support behind House-passed legislation to expand federal financing for human embryonic stem cell research, breaking with President Bush and religious conservatives in a move that could impact […]

The Sickeningly Quotable Kim

Sunday, May 29th, 2005

“Priscilla Owen is now the proud owner of a lifetime appointment to the second highest court in the United States, where she can inflict her utter disregard for individual rights on the people of Louisiana and Mississippi—as she has been doing for the more than 10 years in Texas.”

No, Kim, (graphic pictures) […]

Saturday, April 16th, 2005

Atwood at Here We Stand reports that the “choice” crowd in Illinois is now rallying to require a doctor’s referral to perform an ultrasound on a pregnancy. Why? The article he quotes explains it:

How will people look back on this?

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

It pains me to do this, but it makes me wonder how people fifty or a hundred years from now will look back on the figures of today.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Executed for conspiracy to assassinate Adolf Hitler who, as we all know, set up special facilities to butcher Jews. Was Dietrich defending life?
Eric Rudolph: […]

Abortions in Alaska

Sunday, April 3rd, 2005

Terri Schiavo Dead

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

Terri Schiavo died this morning after 14 days of court-ordered dehydration and starvation. Michael Schiavo refused to allow her parents and siblings to be at her side when she drew her last breath.
I’m disappointed. We kill thousands of children each day in this country out of convenience. It was just […]

I’m stunned.

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

On the murdering of Terri Schiavo:
“She is being starved to death, she is being dehydrated to death. That’s immoral and unnecessary.”
Shock of all shocks - it came from Rev. Jesse Jackson. I didn’t think I’d ever be on the same side of an issue with him.
It’s been 11 days since Terri has had been […]

More on Terri…

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

From BlogsForTerri:
Michael Schiavo has suspended all visitations, including those by Terri’s parents. He is in contempt of court because there is a court order allowing the Schindlers to be with Terri in her court ordered final hours. I’d be surprised if this court actually upheld its own order and brought consequences to […]

and on it goes…

Judge Greer quits his church.
The politicians get it right…
As a deal in Congress was worked out to have federal courts decide Terri Schiavo’s fate, emotions swelled outside the brain-damaged woman’s hospice room Saturday, with protesters arrested after they symbolically tried to smuggle in bread and water on her second day without a feeding tube.
