Why shouldn’t she abort?

Earlier in the week I was listening to a podcast discussion about the controversy Richard Dawkins inspired when asked what to do when pregnant with a Down Syndrome baby.  His response was to abort and start over.  The woman on the pro-abortion side defended the sentiment even though she said she … [Read more...]

Brittany Maynard has renewed the discussion on the ethics of assisted suicide and assisted death after she wrote an op-ed piece for CNN sharing her story about her decision to take her life early next month.  Assisted suicide and assisted death are different, and I think the distinction is … [Read more...]

Pro-illegal immigration hypocrisy

Many on the political left, who support the influx of illegals across our southern border, often deride those who oppose an open door immigration policy as simply being racist nativists.  They point out what, to them, looks to be an inconsistency: remember when the white European illegal immigrants … [Read more...]

Animals have right to live as much as any human…well, not any human

jones murder 5

If you don't know who Kendall Jones is, she is a teen who has recently ruffled some feathers by posing with African big game animals she's hunted.  Well, one self-righteous anti-animal killing liberal compared the killing of those -- or any animal -- to murder.  In fact animals have the right to … [Read more...]

The slippery slope gets slipperier: Pedophilia is natural, says academics

When opponents of legalized same sex marriage and socially normalizing homosexuality ask the question: what's next? proponents scoff at their warnings of a slippery slope into doing the same for bestiality and pedophilia.  However, the claims of the slippery slope were vindicated when psychologists … [Read more...]

Her body, her choice? Mother smokes and drinks because she’s having a boy

Josie Cunningham made news a while back for publicizing her intention to have an abortion in order to appear on reality shows in hopes of becoming famous.  Well, she decided against having that abortion, but isn't making things much better.  She had believed she was having a baby girl, but much to … [Read more...]

Planned Parenthood gives award for increase in abortions at facility

Planned Parenthood Annual Report 2012-2013

Supporters of the right to elective abortion and Planned Parenthood often tout that only 3% of their 'business' is abortion.  This number is, of course, misleading. However, of the women who get services from Planned Parenthood because they're pregnant, there's another story to be told.  A … [Read more...]

Is gender assigned, or recognized?

First, you have to consider the source.  But I've seen this kind of attitude toward gender from hyper-liberal feminists before.  They abhor the thought that boys are boys and girls are girls.  Somehow, this notion that we can tell if someone is a boy or girl simply by looking, is offensive. (Slate) … [Read more...]

Government imposes political correctness on private business

For those of you who follow the news, the federal government has sufficiently pressured the US Patent Office to revoke the trademark for the NFL team, the Washington Redskins.  First and foremost I find it suspicious that these kinds of frivolous movements only take root in years when a certain … [Read more...]

Selling sex to children

The conservative minded have been claiming for decades that sex education essentially markets sexual activity to the students in the classroom.  The argument is that when children are taught 'how to' in a manner they're told is 'safe' it encourages the behavior.  Pro-abortion choice advocates and … [Read more...]

Liberalism is always on the wrong side of life

This need not be a long post in order to convey a recent observation concerning liberalism and life.  They always seem to be on the wrong side of it. Liberalism is pro-abortion.  Elective abortion intentionally takes the life of innocent human beings for reasons of convenience and … [Read more...]

Student trying to find “Islamophobia” instead treated nicer

Far too many people out there buy into the hype that white people simply don't like brown people.  It's not difficult to see why.  At every turn, opposition to some prominent minority is sloughed off as racism.  It then comes as a shock to learn that it's simply not as pervasive as it's presented. … [Read more...]

Unfit mother arrested for leaving children locked in a hot car, Progressives rush to her defense

I have been reading in Progressive leaning blogs about a homeless woman who was arrested after attending a job interview for child abuse.  Apparently, she left her children, 2 years-old and 6 months, locked in her car (in Arizona) for at least 45 minutes while she interviewed.  The spin being added … [Read more...]

Disagreement doesn’t cause suicide

As a follow-up to THIS POST, it was reported that despite the group intending to hold an event where speakers defend traditional marriage, LGBT activists aren't satisfied that The Stanford Anscombe Society has a history of not being "anti-gay".  Jeffrey Cohen, vice president of GradQ, a homosexual … [Read more...]

Do you understand the Hobby Lobby controversy?

Hobby Lobby

I ask because many people don't.  They don't because most media outlets are contorting Hobby Lobby's actual position.  Abortion activists and Progressive talkers are trying to make the story one which paints the crafting retailer as being anti-birth control.  However, Hobby Lobby's already-offered … [Read more...]

When we dehumanize the pre-born…

This is the kind of thing that happens... (Telegraph) -- The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found. Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish … [Read more...]

Why do so many black mothers turn to abortion?

alabama

The above number is bad enough. But in New York City, 80% of abortions are had by minority mothers. In general black mothers abort at rates much higher than their populative representation. Many defenders of abortion will punt to poverty=abortion. But this would also be the case in areas of the … [Read more...]

Do you censor yourself on social media?

The advent of social media outlets have made a small world even smaller.  Friends of yesteryear and family rarely seen or heard from have been brought back together via Facebook, Twitter and other internet social mediums.  In addition to reconnecting with family and friends, people voice their views … [Read more...]

Washington halts the death penalty, but should it?

Governor Jay Inslee of Washington state has enacted a moratorium on capital punishment.  Anti-capital punishment activists are relishing the success and death row inmates are resting a little easier knowing they'll never meet the fate they imperiled upon their victims.  What purpose does a political … [Read more...]

We don’t need to know about your sex life

Missouri defensive end Michael Sam made headlines by announcing he is gay.  He is not alone.  There seems to be a trend for athletes to publicly proclaim their homosexuality.  Figure skater Brian Boitano and basketball player Jason Collins preceded Sam in "coming out".  Of course, these … [Read more...]
