Good-bye Mr. President & Thank You!
As President George W. Bush enters the final hours of his presidency, a certain sadness has gripped me. As I watched his good-bye speech to the nation, I was reminded of all that this brave man has done for the country and all of the things that we should thank the 43rd President of the United States for. It was a sobering reminder that the | Read More »

Where’s The Mystery?
Blessing or burden? A 16 year old Port Angeles, Washington, girl gave birth to a precious baby boy in the early morning hours of January 29th, alone in the bathroom of her father’s house.

For Privacy’s Sake
At the risk of undermining my reputation for manliness (stop laughing), I will admit that on reading this New York Times article I felt like weeping. In all seriousness, the tragic nature of the acts described nearly brought me to tears right at my desk.

A Religious View of Abortion…But Not What You Expect!
(This is my very first diary, and I’m probably about to put my foot in it big time…but here goes.) Full Disclosure: I am not a conservative. I am center-left in my leanings.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t sweat the details — Just bring on the babies!
Look, kid, I’m not here for the details. My only motivation in this is to get that dirty little critter swimming in your stomach to the nearest biohazard bag.
The “public service” group, Planned Parenthood, has recently gotten themselves into another batch of hot water. An Indiana “counselor” –I guess that is better than murder– was unknowingly video taped discussing abortion procedures with what she thought was a 13-years old girl. The 13-year old was really a 20-year-old UCLA student named Lila Rose.

Obama Administration to abort life-saving policies.
The Bush Administration is finally set to alter regulations to allow doctors and other health care professionals a “right to conscience,” allowing them not to participate in medical procedures, such as abortion and infanticide, which stand opposed to their moral underpinnings. To wit: The ‘provider conscience’ rule applies to any procedure performed in a federally funded medical setting that “violate(s) an individual’s conscience,” but it | Read More »
“Right to life” vs. “License to kill”: A Libertarian Case for the Pro-Life Position
Promoted to the front by Erick based on a recommendation from several readers. The abortion issue involves vast deeps of confusion about the nature of rights, freedom and the lack thereof, choice, license, responsibilities, and obligations. In this essay I attempt to cut away all the confusion to get to the heart of things from a classical liberal approach. We hold these Truths to be | Read More »

This is a pattern among abortionists
This should not surprise us: Planned Parenthood of Indiana has suspended a nurse after the release of an undercover videotape showing her coaching a supposed 13-year-old on how to duck Indiana’s laws about parental consent on abortion and the reporting of child sex abuse.
