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 »
Winning at all costs? Healthcare, Notre Dame, and the Catholic Church
As I’m sure everyone in the blogosphere knows, Left and Right, we are in the middle of an increasingly fierce partisan battle over the socialization of the healthcare system pushed forth by Obama and San Fran Nan. What some Republicans and Democrats have done, aided by the Council of Catholic Bishops is craft provisions within this bill that essentially add the Hyde Amendment to this | Read More »
“There is a worry that Sen. Nelson means business,” — Dem Aide says
And all the kings horses, and all the kings men, couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again…OK, we aren’t there, yet. But the left is starting to flex its muscles and are beginning to be annoyed, and really concerned about all the compromises that have been made thus far. The pro-abortion forces know that there is a good chance the bill will not go to conference, | Read More »
I Believe in Family
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to take a break from the busy world we live in and refocus on one of life’s most important priorities, family. This year I was blessed to spend this past Wednesday morning bringing in the duck season with my youngest son, Parker. Any parent who has woken up to go hunting before dawn with their child and seen the excitement | Read More »
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D, RI) denied Communion.
At least, he’s claiming that he’s been forbidden it by Bishop Thomas Tobin of the Providence Diocese, and Bishop Tobin hasn’t denied it – and Tobin has denied that he’s ordered priest under his authority to actually deny Kennedy the Sacrament. Bishop Tobin’s office has also released a letter indicating that the bishop has chastised the Congressman on the subject of abortion since at least | Read More »
Clash of Realms: Bishop Tobin, Representative Kennedy, and Church-State Entanglement.
Thomas J. Tobin, bishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of Providence, Rhode Island has apparently instructed Rep. Patrick Kennedy not to present himself for Holy Communion due to the latter’s pro-abortion stance and his public statements asserting that his standing as a Catholic is unaffected by his dissent from the unwavering and well-known position of the Church on this issue. Is this an inappropriate and | Read More »
The Catholic Church is a tad miffed at Congressman Patrick Kennedy.
Congressman Kennedy: No soup communion for you ! http://news.theage.com.au/breaking-news-world/jfk-nephew-barred-from-communion-report-20091122-isxn.html Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D-RI-1) Barred From Receiving Communion.

Utah Senate Candidate Cherilyn Eagar Chastises Opponent Bob Bennett and Feminist Women in U.S. Senate
Salt Lake City, Utah, November 20, 2009. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) unveiled his 2,074 page health care bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act. U.S. Senate candidate (R-UT) Cherilyn Eagar said, “Abortion funding language is included in this bill with no remedy to the problem that this is government-run health care, rationing services and placing our health care decision-making in the hands of | Read More »
RNC#fail My Convo w/them on Employee Abortion Issue
Over the last 10 years or so, I have given some bucks to the RNC. Not enough to cause me any financial harm, but still enough to take a pretty nice vacation. When I became aware, despite their platform being “anti-abortion” they were offering coverage for their employees since 1991 for abortion, I was pretty mad. I’ve read several articles regarding this issue, but decided | Read More »
‘…Mr. Axelrod’s not a legislator; he doesn’t really know what he’s talking about.’
That was Rep. Stupak’s (DEMOCRAT) blunt response to David Axelrod’s assertion that the pro-life language currently in the health care rationing bill would be ‘adjusted.’ Stupak’s having none of it: Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) pledged on Tuesday morning to defeat healthcare reform legislation if his abortion amendment is taken out, saying 10 to 20 anti-abortion-rights Democrats would vote against a bill with weaker language. “They’re | Read More »
The Party of Death In Full Tilt
From the diaries by Erick As you well know, Speaker Pelosi’s version of President Obama’s signature healthcare overhaul passed the House by a razor thin margin of 220-215 late Saturday night. Seldom have more Americans been more aware of a piece of legislation passing Congress, as news of this historical occasion filled newspapers, blogs, and email and twitter accounts from coast-to-coast over the weekend. Ironically, | Read More »
‘Real’ choices are for ‘real’ people, Megan. Not conservatives.
I’m moderately surprised that Megan McArdle doesn’t already know the answer to her implicit question here: Obviously, since I’m pro-choice, I think you can argue against abortion control in many effective ways. But this[*] is not one of them–at least not if you hew to the feminist notion that women are entitled to their own choices and preferences as individuals, not lumped in with some | Read More »
