Chelsea2012 Election, WomenLeave a Comment

Lesson learned: a non-recovery, anemic economy is “good enough” to win if you are a good campaigner — a good, extremely negative campaigner. Oh, and women want free birth control something fierce. I can’t honestly say that I’m surprised at the outcome of the election, but I’m still disappointed — in my country, in general, but in my gender, specifically. … Read More

I don’t know who made this image, but it reminds of Michelle Malkin’s column this week responding to a ridiculous ad for Obama from some Hollywood feminists.

Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram at Planned Parenthood Today!

Chelsea2012 Election, Women2 Comments

I can’t believe Planned Parenthood supporters still peddle this nonsense. During Tuesday night’s debate Obama said: “Millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care. They rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country.” Repeat after me: Planned Parenthood … Read More

Dammit, Mitt. You don’t make it easy for me to want to vote for you as opposed to just voting against Obama. I knew that Mitt Romney’s son Tagg had used IVF and a surrogate mother twice to give birth to three of his six children. I didn’t hold his son’s actions against Mitt himself, though. That was, of course, … Read More

Romney/Ryan 2012: That’s One Hot Ticket!

Is it bad that, upon hearing about the Ryan pick yesterday, this was my first reaction (via Facebook): Haha! All I know about Paul Ryan is that after he gave the GOP response to one of the President’s SOTU addresses all I could think was, “I’m sorry, I was a little too distracted by how cute he was to listen … Read More

A Bold Statement from Newt on ESC Research and IVF

This didn’t get a whole lot of press, but it certainly caught my attention. While courting pro-life Christians in Florida on Sunday, Newt Gingrich said that he would ban all embryonic stem cell (ESC) research – even research on ‘left-over’ embryos from IVF labs – and take a serious look at the way fertility clinics are managed. From the Christian … Read More
