We should partial-birth abortion cows and feed it to vegetarians
If abortion isn’t murder, this should be a great solution. You can still eat meat without “killing” anything. We can even call it Superveal. I’ll call PETA and see if they want to invest in my new idea.
My Response to the Senate Cloture Vote on Health Care
Once again the liberal leadership in Washington has used the dark of night to continue the process of shoving health care “reform” down the throats of all Americans. On Saturday Harry Reid threw out his original 2,000 page bill and replaced it with an amendment numbering in the hundreds of pages, leaving other members of the Senate, and the American people, very little time to | Read More »
Conservative Marching Orders 2010 – Make them Pay!
BEN NELSON SOLD OUT HIS COUNTRY, and he ensured the murder of potentially hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of American babies that will never be born. We were all fooled. We thought this man was principled. His vote was sold for guarantees for his state to extend full and permanent funding to everyone below 133% of the federal poverty level. The bill requires all states | Read More »
The Sneaky Abortion Deception in Senator Reid’s “Manager’s Amendment”
When I first read about Senator Harry Reid’s “manager’s amendment” that he persuaded Senator Nelson to endorse today, I commented that it didn’t seem so bad. However, I have now more thoroughly examined the actual text of the manager’s amendment, and it looks to me like Senator Nelson has been tricked. At page 40 of the manager’s amendment, subsection 1303(b)(2)(A) says: (A) IN GENERAL.— If a qualified health | Read More »
Stupak May Yet Be Our Savior
Hard to believe, but Stupak may yet be our savior in torpedoing ObamaCare: An aide to Rep. Bart Stupak (D. Mich.) coordinated opposition to a Senate compromise on the place of abortion in health care legislation this morning with the Republican Senate leadership, the Conference Catholic Bishops, and other anti-abortion groups, according to a chain of frantic emails obtained this morning by POLITICO. Stupak, in | Read More »
Ben Nelson (D) bringing everyone together!
This takes skill – but apparently Reid’s amendment is up to the task. The National Organization of Women: We call on all senators who consider themselves friends of women’s rights to reject the Manager’s Amendment, and if it remains, to defeat this cruelly over-compromised legislation. Planned Parenthood apparently agrees. National Right to Life: NRLC will score the upcoming roll call votes on cloture on the Reid | Read More »
Pro-Life! What The Bible Says.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13) Your hands made me and formed me. (Psalm 119:3) Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. (Jeremiah 1:5) I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm | Read More »
Sen. Nelson (D-NE) Rejects Abortion “Compromise” — Not at Yes is the New No
The left-right-center squeeze is on. (See this post for the latest parade of liberal attacks on the bill.) Now, Senator Ben Nelson has rejected the abortion “compromise” language. It’s not just abortion either, Senator Nelson also cited other concerns he had with the legislation. So, if you are counting Senators who are not YES votes, that count would be: 1. Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) 2. | Read More »
Kudos to Senators Lieberman and Nelson
I telephoned Senator Lieberman’s office today, and urged him to hang tough on health care, and to also support Senator Ben Nelson’s protest against taxpayer subsidies for abortion. As a Connecticut resident, I urge my neighbors in this state to do likewise, and the same goes for anyone else who can afford the phone call. Doubtless there are many things that can be done to improve health care | Read More »
Intellectual Honesty: A Question of Life
Not too long ago, President Obama gave a speech at Notre Dame where he declared that we must be “open to compromise” regarding the abortion “debate.” At the time I thought to myself that this is one debate that should actually be over because I believe that almost everyone is truly pro-life; they’ve simply convinced themselves that an unborn baby is not a life. They | Read More »
Sen. Ben Nelson: I will not vote to end the filibuster
Everyone in the country closely following the ObamaCare saga have been waiting for Senator Nelson (D-NE) to give us a sense of where he is on the bill since his abortion restriction amendment failed last week. Yesterday, Senator Nelson — a long time pro-lifer — said: “I can’t support cloture [ending the filibuster] on the next round,” and that adds a second large monkey wrench | Read More »
California Senate Candidate Backs Choice
Have you heard the latest from Barbara Boxer? The men who have brought us this don’t single out a procedure that’s used by a man, or a drug that is used by a man, that involves his reproductive health care and say they have to get a special rider. There’s nothing in this amendment that says if a man some days wants to buy Viagra, | Read More »

Ted Kennedy, Pro-Lifer
An observant reader notes that my description yesterday of Ted Kennedy’s support for legal abortion as “lifelong” is an overstatement. In fact, early in his public career, even Ted Kennedy had not yet embraced the casual cruelty of his party towards the defenseless unborn; indeed, Kennedy’s rhetoric in those early days, displays genuine compassion for the defenseless unborn. Given Kennedy’s centrality to Democratic strategy on | Read More »
Dem-o-bats still suck blood from health care liberty sans abortion
Senator Nelson, do not be fooled and do not try to fool We the social conservative pro-life people The fate of America could well be decided before Christmas as it appears the ObamaDems in the U.S. Senate are no more than four votes short of ushering in socialized medicine or its slippery-slope equivalent that makes a government option monopoly inevitable. At least one so-called Blue | Read More »
Blanche Lincoln, Statist Stooge
Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) is up for re-election in 2010. Apparently, she’s looking to be on unemployment rather than being paid to do work (yes, I’m being sarcastic). She voted to proceed with the debate on the Senate version of Obamacare. Yesterday, she voted to table the amendment offered by Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) that would pretty much make sure any federal funds would not | Read More »
