March for LifeHundreds of thousands went to D. C. for the annual March for Life last week.  As even the liberal Washington Post observed, this pro-life movement is full of youth and energy.

Dear {Governor Kasich},

I have been horrified to read about the heartless way our society treats some children, enabled and facilitated by new technologies.  Especially saddening is the recent case of Sherri Shepherd, who ordered the creation of a child that she now says she wants nothing to do with.  (See, e.g., http://acculturated.com/the-brave-new-world-of-ivf/ )

40 Years of Roe vs. Wade

January 22, 2013

On January 22nd, 1973, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Roe vs. Wade (full text, Wikipedia), inventing a constitutional “right” to abortion and overturning democratically enacted laws to the contrary in something like 46 out of 50 states.  According to the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute, by 2008 “nearly 50 million” abortions had been performed.  (Pro-life groups estimate that the total is now more than 55 million.)

Well-spent Journey links to ten articles about the logic of the pro-life position.  It seems as good a way as any to observe this grisly anniversary.

Well-spent Journey has put together a concise, matter-of-fact overview of the most common methods of abortion and how they are performed:

 

“Abortion Methods: An Overview”

As I’ve suggested before, people disagree about the morality of abortion, but we should at least all be able to agree that taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to subsidize it.

Earlier this year, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a law ending government funding of abortion at the state and local levels in Texas.  Reportedly this has left Planned Parenthood “reeling”, forced to close a number of clinics and reorganize its remaining operations in and around Texas.

Get this man a nomination!

Ministry of Love

April 6, 2011

George Orwell’s dystopian 1984 imagines a totalitarian state that even rewrites the language to perfect its black-is-white pro-government propaganda.  Among other things, the department of prisons and torture is called the “Ministry of Love”.  (The department of propaganda itself is called the “Ministry of Truth”.)

In the real world in 2011, there’s a network of “clinics” whose primary business is terminating pregnancies; it’s called, ironically, Planned Parenthood.  Read the rest of this entry »

A Modern Saint Paul

February 22, 2011

Paul (also known as Saul) was a Jewish leader who persecuted early Christians, arresting and imprisoning them and apparently even ordering their deaths.  He was, perhaps, the worst of sinners; yet God called him, and changed his heart, and Paul became one of the great evangelists of the early church (and wrote several of the books of the New Testament).  It’s a remarkable story of grace and redemption, and an assurance that no one is beyond the power of God’s forgiveness and salvation through Christ.  Read the rest of this entry »

Safe, Legal, and Rare

February 10, 2011

Mark Steyn has a roundup, appropriately hyperlinked, of some very inappropriate things that are being done in the service of abortion.  If you have a strong stomach (fair warning: this is very disturbing stuff), I recommend it, especially if you haven’t heard about any of this yet from your normal news sources.  Read the rest of this entry »
