This morning I was on the Mike Allen Show to talk about: Bristol Palin and the tricky pro-life tightrope, the bio-ethical implications of Justice Kennedy’s marriage opinion (in other words: “marriage equality” leads to “family equality” and more and more third party reproduction — #adultswin #childrenlose), and, finally, why “transability” isn’t as crazy as it used to be.

CNN: Womb is a ‘Sacred Space’
In a report about how toxic chemicals possibly affect unborn children CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta truthfully describes the kind of place the womb is supposed to be for unborn children. Why do I have a feeling, however, that this report failed to mention that this ‘safe refuge’ is legally allowed to be penetrated and injected with some toxic chemicals that … Read More

TOB Tuesday: Why Sex Sells
In light of the recent dust-up over an over-sexed Calvin Klein billboard recently displayed over a busy New York intersection, I thought I’d offer this article from Christopher West on Why Sex Sells.

Come What May on DVD
I mentioned this movie several months ago and now it’s finally coming out on DVD – March 17. The trailer: The premise of this film – a direct challenge to Roe v.

She Turned Me ino a Newt!
Well, that accusation hasn’t come out…yet. But it wouldn’t surprise me if it did. American politics, and the American media, has reached an all-time low with the ongoing smear campaign against Sarah Palin. Last week Vanity Fair published an “Authoritative Trig Palin Timeline” regarding the online rumors about Trig’s parentage. In it they juxtapose the “official story” with the “wingnut … Read More
