Georgia Case is Latest Example that Abortion is Often Coerced, Not Chosen, Say ‘Silent No More’ Leaders

STATEN ISLAND, Ny., June 11 /CNW/ — The recent case of a Georgia woman who pressured her teenage son’s girlfriend into having an abortion illustrates that the procedures are often not chosen, but coerced, say leaders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign (SNMAC), the world’s largest network of individuals harmed by abortion.

Bad at Science. Great at Math.

Giving new meaning to the word brazen, Planned Parenthood has spent the most recent legislative session lobbying for even more money for the state’s largest chain of abortion centers.
It’s not enough that Planned Parenthood affiliates across Washington already receive close to $15 million from state and federal tax moneys. Nor is it enough that Planned Parenthood of Western Washington (PPWW) makes a profit of $9 million in contraceptive sales each year. And let’s ignore the fact that all Washington Planned Parenthood branches have seen their revenues soar and coffers swell in recent years under the state’s Take Charge program. (In 2002 Planned Parenthood of Western Washington was listed as the fourth richest Planned Parenthood in the entire nation.) Continue reading

American Right to Life Misunderstands Ron Paul

Cross posted at Life of the Party.

SpeakerI would much rather be writing a positive and promotional post about the American Right to Life.  I have lauded their organization, their efforts and their leader from their beginning, early this year.  I agree with their approach, to focus on the personhood of the unborn.  Restoring the unalienable right to life ultimately depends on our recognition of personhood.  It’s right there in Roe vs. Wade: “(If the) suggestion of personhood is established, the [abortion rights] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”  Whether we do that separately in all 50 states or through a federal Constitution Amendment (ratified by all 50 states), that is the goal.  No amount of child killing regulation will restore the right to life.  We can’t just “chip away” at Roe vs. Wade.  We must challenge it outright. 
The decision to “focus on the strategy” is a good one, so long as it includes an approach that is lawful.  The American Right to Life Action league would do well to consider constitutional arguments from a presidential candidate who shares the principles and goals of their organization, but instead, they have chosen to slander him.  That’s right.  Ron Paul, the only presidential candidate who has given the pro-life cause enough thought to write a book about it, has championed the cause of personhood in his Sanctity of Life Act, and has even won over former pro-choicers to his principled pro-life position.  Ron Paul has been ignored or written off by the media, and now more than ever, is assumed to have no chance at winning the Republican nomination, barring a miracle (which I still hope for and still believe can happen) yet is now being slandered by American Right to Life in their hit piece, “Ron Paul is pro-choice, state by state.”  The timing of their anti-Romney campaign made much more sense, when he was leading in the polls, unless they know something now that we don’t know about Ron Paul and his chances.   

Before the piece went public, I was even contacted and given the chance to respond, Continue reading
