The rape exception makes no sense

Many pro-lifers believe abortion should be permitted if the mother seeking one became pregnant because she was raped. This position makes no sense. If the unborn is a human being, then the rape exception says it’s acceptable to kill a human being if her father raped her mother, or if her existence causes her mother […]

Video: “Life’s Greatest Miracle”

Abortion rights advocates, I challenge you to watch this five-chapter video … … and try to claim with a straight face that the unborn is not a human being.

A thought experiment on the “rape/incest/deformity exception” in the abortion debate

Miss Smith & Mrs. Jones get pregnant on the same date. Miss Smith is unmarried, uneducated, & poor. 24 weeks into Miss Smith’s pregnancy (the result of an incestuous rape), she delivers early due to complications. Baby Smith survives, but has lifelong physical & mental handicaps. Mrs. Jones is wealthy, educated, and successful in her […]

Anthony Kennedy on abortion: steady as Jell-O

This fall the U.S. Supreme Court will be tackling partial birth abortion again. Two cases overturning the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 will get a final hearing, and we’ll get to see where our two newest Justices stand on abortion. SCOTUSblog has posted a summary of what’s in dispute. I dug up the […]

What are you doing about abortion?

If you’re a pro-lifer, stop for a moment and ask yourself what you’re doing to fight abortion in a concrete way. Roe v. Wade just turned 25, and we’ve seen lots of marches and vigils and essays from our side. Meanwhile, the slaughter continues. Do something more. Volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center near you. […]

Fatally flawed: the violinist argument for abortion rights

This was originally going to be a comment tacked onto the end of this post about abortion on Wizbang, but it got a bit long. Thank goodness for trackbacks! In Paul’s post, he comments on John “Waffles” Kerry’s incoherent statement on abortion and the beginning of life: A Catholic who supports abortion rights and has […]

C’mon, say it with me: “abortion”

Rich Lowry at NRO observes that for people describing themselves as “pro-choice”, uttering the word “abortion” is a rare thing indeed. Oscar Wilde famously spoke so many years ago, referring to homosexuality, of “the love that dare not speak its name.” Today, of course, homosexuality shouts its name and affixes it to marriage licenses. But […]

First an abortion on British TV, now on American radio?

Syndicated talk radio host Glenn Beck, a conservative pro-lifer, spent a major part of today’s three-hour show discussing his intention to broadcast the sounds of an abortion on tomorrow’s show, commentary-free. Basically, he’s calling the pro-choice bluff that says “it’s just a surgical procedure, nothing more.” Although he’s known for masterfully-done gags and parodies, he’s […]

Gunner, target: idiot pro-abort marchers

Misha of Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler fame has posted a salty but dead-on pro-life rant on the March For Slaughtering Inconvenient Kids.

In the “feminists & light bulbs” vein

ScrappleFace: 38 Million Not Expected at DC Abortion Rights Rally The American Association of Aborted People (AAAP), a political inaction committee, said none of its 38 million members would participate in the protest march. Haw!

Archbishop to UK Catholics: “The truth about abortion is too icky for you to see.”

And now for something … completely different. Here’s a silly church leader’s response to the BBC’s plan to televise an abortion: The Catholic Church condemned the programme. A spokesman for the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, the Archbishop of Birmingham, said: “Any film that shows an abortion is abhorrent to Catholics.” Abhorrent, yes … but is […]

Abortion on British TV, but not here

Hat tip: Drudge The Observer reports that the BBC’s Channel 4 will screen a graphic film showing an abortion on April 20th. Any attempt to do that here on ABC, CBS, or NBC would be … well, aborted. In America, land of free speech, our most divisive issue is never confronted in its gory reality […]

Forecast: partly cloudy with TRO flurries

Now that the Unborn Victims of Violence Act is in effect, watch the news over the next few days and you’ll likely see some pro-abortion activist request a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against enforcing it. The abortion industry plaintiffs (The National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood, and the ghoulish Dr. Leroy Carhart) got a TRO within […]

Somehow I doubt the feminists will be mollified

For feminists who care more about image than substance, this heart-warming tableau … President Bush Signs Unborn Victims of Violence Act … ought to make up for this appalling lack of politically correct diversity: President Bush signs Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 I’m sure the gals at NOW are on board this time. […]

FDA: “Don’t nuke that bun in the oven”

On Saturday, the AP reported that the FDA had issued a warning against nonmedical “keepsake” sonograms performed to give expecting parents an early look at junior without a visit to the doctor. After last year’s report of 3D sonograms catching pictures of unborn babies smiling from the womb, entrepreneurs have been opening sonogram centers to […]
