The practically peerless legend leaves his great defense of life to others. What a challenge
And undercover videos show Gosnell is no ‘aberration.’ Some honest advocates of ‘choice’ are seriously reconsidering their whole premise and belief system in light of recent news. While some ‘abortion rights’ activists are coming unglued over these revelations.
A question I've always wanted to ask President Obama...
Several years ago, a film came out that that was part psychological thriller/part science fiction that involved a missing child and a woman tortured by the denial of his existence. Way too creepy a premise for me, so I didn’t see it. Then I learned that it was all based on the premise that a mother’s love was a force so powerful, it could not be broken.
The idea behind the interactive webcast program ’Bump’ was to follow three fictitious characters through unplanned pregnancies and invite viewers to debate and try to shape whatever decisions the three women came to about choosing abortion or not. It set out to be provocative, and it did provoke.
Many thousands of women, organizations and NGOs descended on New York for the recent global checkup with the annual ’Commission on the Status of Women’, with the Beijing conference as sort of a benchmark. It was heavy on the agenda of spreading access to abortion under the mantle of ‘reproductive rights’, but there was a large pro-life contingent there to stake claims that authentic dignity for women comes from true universal human rights….for all human beings.

Oddsmakers would either not touch this one, or laugh at you if you even suggested the wager. 'During an abortion, the mother makes the other choice. And they lived happily ever after...'Okay, we won't know about the 'ever after' part until time goes by, but the rest is true, and it did happen in Vegas.
Ever since I heard a most poignant story many years ago about a young woman, wife and mother, whose life ended much too young and her husband referring to something she saved ‘for special occasions’ by saying ‘every day you’re alive is a special occasion’…I have repeated that story and that lesson and tried to live it. Here's a variation on that theme...
Before the Super Bowl even happened last weekend, we all know the public debate over it whipped up into a heated controversy and abortion activists joined forces to contest it and try to have CBS yank the Tim and Pam Tebow ad from the commercial lineup. So just the leak that it would air generated that media frenzy and very public debate. That’s the beauty of this whole episode...
