Chelsea2008 Election, Abortion2 Comments

The Guttmacher Institute has come out with a new report documenting 30 year (1974-2004) trends in U.S. abortions. Overall the numbers are at an all time low, though disparities still remain among the different ethnic groups. Some other things in the report worth noting (some of my own emphasis added): First. They still insist that contraception is the ultimate answer … Read More

She has a gift alright: Abortion survivor Gianna Jessen, who says she has the “gift of cerebral palsy” (a result of being burned alive inside her mother’s womb), is helping to spread the news about Barack Obama’s votes against the Born Alive Infant Protection Acts in IL.

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

Pawlenty won’t even be at the rally in OH. Right now speculation is hot for Palin, which I think would be incredible. Other names still in … Read More

How appropriate that today’s feast of St. Augustine came during the same week Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi used the Church Father’s words to justify her position in favor of abortion: “After she was elected to Congress, and the choice issue became more public as she would have to vote on it, she studied the matter more closely. Her … Read More

John McCain and Embryonic Stem Cells

Chelsea2008 Election, Embryonic Stem Cell Research2 Comments

Last week there was a big comment discussion on one of Jay’s posts about what John McCain’s position on ESC research actually is anymore. It seems there has been some confusion lately. He very vaguely addressed this during last Saturday’s Civil Forum with Rick Warren at his Saddleback church, but let’s look at everything, shall we? For years John McCain … Read More
