...altogether wrong...

"Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae — in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of http://levitrakamagra.com/. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. Which some people felt would risk coercing women into having abortions when they didn’t really want them. But when the court decided McRae, the case came out the other way. And then I realized that my perception of it had been altogether wrong."

Maafa 21

Saw an amazing movie a couple of weeks ago – an carefully and passionately crafted documentation of intentional genocide against the poor in America as carried out by Planned Parenthood and others. The film is titled ”Maafa 21,” after the Swahilli word for holocaust.

"They were stolen from their homes, locked in chains and taken across an ocean. And for more than 200 years, their blood and sweat would help to build the richest and most powerful nation the world has ever known.

But when slavery ended, their welcome was over. America’s wealthy elite had decided it was time for them to disappear and they were not particular about how it might be done.

Gendercide and the Sacred Cow

Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare has issued new guidelines under which doctors cannot refuse to perform abortions through the 18th week of pregnancy for any reason, including sex selection.

A kinder, gentler eugenic?

Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those — one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

May Reason Prevail

Dan Barker, of the “Freedom from Religion Foundation” has been all over the news lately claiming his right to post a large placard next to a nativity scene in Olympia, Washington. The placard reads: “There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens our hearts and enslaves our minds.”

Have you ever noticed that avowed atheists are among the most mis-focused people on the planet? You would think that if they truly believed there is no God and no afterlife, they would furiously occupy themselves with the business of living well. Don’t worry, be happy. You would think that if they were going to bother to post anything at all it would be a giant smiley face accompanied by a placard reading “Have a Nice Day.”

The Price of Speech

Crystal Dixon was fired by the University of Toledo for submitting the following letter to the editor in the Toledo “Free” Press:

Gay rights and wrongs: another perspective

Written by Autumn Lee | | news@toledofreepress.com

By Crystal Dixon

I read with great interest Michael Miller’s April 6 column, “Gay Rights and Wrongs.”

I respectfully submit a different perspective for Miller and Toledo Free Press readers to consider.

First, human beings, regardless of their choices in life, are of ultimate value to God and should be viewed the same by others. At the same time, one’s personal choices lead to outcomes either positive or negative.

It Takes A Family...

Tonight I was in Oakland for Life Legal Defense Foundation’s annual dinner. Jennifer Roback Morse was the speaker and she focused largely on the defense of one-man, one-woman marriage. Her argument is that marriage is gender-specific and child-centered. The primary reason the state is involved in the business of marriage to begin with is not to provide tax benefits, but because it has an interest in ensuring a secure environment for the products of marriage - which are not SUV’s, but children.

Freedom of Choice Act

I intentionally didn’t post much leading up to the election because I was up to my eyeballs in work and because we have been bombarded by the various campaigns for the better part of a year. But that’s all over now. More accurately, it’s just beginning. So it’s time to address one of the first pieces of legislation we can expect from our new administration: the Freedom of Choice Act, or FOCA.

Give Them A King

Fed up with the present administration, the people said, “Give us a king to govern us, one just like the other nations have.”

Okay then. I have to agree that you haven’t done an especially good job of governing yourselves. You’ve been giving yourselves over to the most inconsequential of pursuits, completely missing that which is essential for your well-being.

But in the interest of full disclosure, let me tell you how the king you are about to choose will rule over you:

He will take your sons - your legacy - and employ them in his imperial processions.

Back to Bondage

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.
