Baby? Seriously?

    Provided you have not just eaten, get a load at this video from the Center for Reproductive Rights. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEMnyiDKUJI&feature=youtu.be Baby? Baby? Are you freaking kidding me? Ok maybe that was the intent of this video. To get a rise out of pro lifers like me. But to what end? No one has ever mistaken me for a prude. But this video is so smarmy and | Read More »

    Forty Years in the Wilderness

    What more may we say about this day in history than that which has already been said? How can we continue to express our sorrow, our sense of loss, and of injustice? And more to the point, should we even bother?

    Another Presidential election has come and gone, and the most pro-abortion President in history has been re-elected. Just yesterday a man so enamored of abortion he was unwilling to vote for punishing doctors who failed to provide medical care for children who survived abortion placed his hand on a Bible and took the oath of office for a second time, after having ridden to victory at least in part on his Republican opponent’s unwillingness to even engage him on this issue for fear of backlash. Now our political betters within the beltway and without tell us that it’s time to drop this issue, concede the ground and move on. Let’s be about the truly important business of marginal income tax rates and deficit spending.

    Roe v. Wade at Forty

    Next week will mark the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that struck down numerous state laws against abortion. To celebrate, I went back and read yet again the actual decision, the concurrences and the dissenting opinions in that case. Like all the previous times, I cannot help but notice how largely devoid of constitutional jurisprudence the | Read More »

    Do Parents who Choose Life over Abortion Deserve Tax Break For Unborn Child

    The congress has already set the table for protecting the unborn child’s right to be defended against harm, with passage of the 2004 Unborn Victims of Violence Act. When President George W. Bush signed the legislation into law, it recognized:

    A “child in utero” as a legal victim, if he or she is injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence. The law defines “child in utero” as “a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.”

    Roe, Roe, Roe, v. Wade Fifty Million Lost…

    Roe, Roe, Roe v. Wade fifty million lost;  End abortion on demand, Stop the holocaust. One of the most chilling, impacting messages I have ever heard regarding the horrors of legalizing abortion via Roe v. Wade was a commercial where a group of children sang the above words to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat. The stakes of the battles that we are | Read More »

    The Relationship Between Law and Morality

    The relationship between law and morality has become increasingly relevant as social liberals advance issues like homosexual marriage and abortion rights.  Since at least Roe v. Wade, social liberalism has also revealed a division within the Republican Party.  The relationship has provoked heated discussion here at RedState.  The most recent being a discussion over homosexual marriage about a month ago – Gay Marriage:  Left vs. | Read More »

    George Will’s son Jon, and the worth of a human with Down syndrome

    George Will:  “This year Jon will spend his birthday where every year he spends 81 spring, summer and autumn days and evenings, at Nationals Park, in his seat behind the home team’s dugout. The Phillies will be in town, and Jon will be wishing them ruination, just another man, beer in hand, among equals in the republic of baseball.”   I have a family member | Read More »

    The American Genocide

    You don’t often hear the words “American” and “genocide” in the same sentence, do you?  The genocide during the Holocaust is well known, and genocide is a crime against humanity.  On September 11, 2001, Americans were killed on our own soil.  However, there is a genocide going on within the borders of the United States that too many are overlooking– it is happening through abortion.  | Read More »

    Is Roe v. Wade Settled Law?

    In the continuing alleged “war on women,” the Democrats are attempting to motivate/scare women voters into siding with their feminist-activist agenda and beliefs. As always, abortion and “reproductive rights” are the centerpiece of their talking points as they portray Republicans as trying to restrict a “fundamental right” of women- that of whether or whether not to have children. However, the starting point- Roe v. Wade- | Read More »

    Hi mommy!  I’m your baby.  You’ve never met me, but you will soon.  My name is Joy, and I have red hair and green eyes.  I want to be a doctor when I grow up.  I love you!  I love when you talk to me- it makes me feel safe and warm.  You were so happy when you found out about me, mommy!  Then someone | Read More »

    Why Are You Outraged?

    To a certain extent, I live in a cave when it comes to following the news, particularly when it comes to media coverage of sensational trials, which tends to drive me around the bend. Therefore, I seriously had never heard of the Casey Anthony trial even as recently as Sunday night. Therefore, I have no strong opinions on whether Casey Anthony is actually guilty of | Read More »

    Counting Our Hot Buttons: Abortion Numbers in Perspective

    With the recent debate over federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood bringing the abortion debate back to the surface, it is sometimes useful to look at the numbers to get a little perspective on why this issue is such a large one. (All of these are estimates, and sources vary, but there’s no serious debate as to the scale of the numbers). Number killed or | Read More »

    Anchor Babies and the Real Problem with the 14th Amendment

    Now even the New York Times is reporting on the phenomenon of “anchor babies” or “birthright citizenship,” where women come to the United States to give birth so that their babies can claim automatic citizenship under the first sentence of the first section of the 14th Amendment.  The story reports on a home in San Gabriel, California which housed expectant Chinese women who paid $9,000 | Read More »
