But Bart Stupak told us all that he had an agreement. He even had that presidential proclamation thingy. Could it possibly be true that Stupak lied or is an idiot (or both)? The Obama administration has officially approved the first instance of taxpayer funded abortions under the new national government-run health care program. This is [...]
Largebill links to one of the most disturbing news items I’ve ever read: A 21-year-old Oakland man is in police custody after he threw his baby daughter into the path of a moving car, according to cops. Police say an off-duty officer saw the man, later identified as John Taylor, shake the 18-month girl and [...]
There is a video in which Andrea Bocelli discusses how he could have been aborted. Bocelli, who is blind, didn’t expect the fuss over his testimony but voiced his pro-life stance clearly in a recent interview with Italian newspaper Il Foglio, as reported by LifeSiteNews.com. “Because of my personal convictions as a devout Catholic, I [...]
I have pretty much run out of adjectives to describe Charlie Crist, who just might be the scummiest politician walking planet Earth right now – quite the mean feat in the age of Obama and the “most ethical Congress in history.” His latest stunt is an effort to scrub his campaign website of all pro-life [...]
Looks like we’re about get hit with a pretty bad thunderstorm here in the DC area. I would suggest that anyone within Nancy Pelosi’s periphery take extra precaution. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she believes she must pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, ”The Word made Flesh.” Pelosi, who is a Catholic and who favors legalized abortion, voted [...]

Ed Morrissey relates the continued good news vis a vis abortion polling: The conservative shift in Americans’ views on abortion that Gallup first recorded a year ago has carried over into 2010. Slightly more Americans call themselves “pro-life” than “pro-choice,” 47% vs. 45%, according to a May 3-6 Gallup poll. This is nearly identical to [...]

Darwin Catholic and John Henry both come to Ross Douthat’s defense in for the column I discussed in my previous post and offer a more favorable interpretation of his column. I’d go so far as to say that John Henry might even be right in his interpretation: It was pretty clear as written, Paul; certainly [...]

Normally it’s Ross Douthat’s pedestrian writing style, bland analysis, and over-eager attempt to please his liberal readers that most annoys me, but he managed to irk me on the substance as well with this column. Happily, Jay Anderson has torn him a new one so that I don’t have to. However, with respect to this [...]
A helpful reminder from Patrick Archbold, commenting on President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. Then again, considering the fact that she is replacing John Paul Stevens, maybe it isn’t the most appropriate cliche.
Ramesh Ponnuru posts a very interesting email noting the fact that Bart Supak wasn’t the only pro-life Democrat who betrayed the cause. Even if they are in relatively safe districts I think the story needs to be told about how Oberstar, Kildee, and Doyle were the true traitors to the pro-life position. Stupak gets all [...]
For those hoping to see Bart Stupak defeated this coming November, you will not get your wish. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), who had a central role in the health reform fight as the leader of anti-abortion Democrats, plans to announce Friday that he will not run for reelection, a Democratic official said. Without Stupak on [...]
Somewhere Doug Kmiec is breathing a sigh of relief, for he is no longer this biggest sell-out to the pro-life cause in modern American politics. As we begin Holy Week, it is appropriate to examine the apology of one Bart Stupak of Michigan. When I saw that Kathleen Parker’s March 24 op-ed, “Stupak’s original sin,” [...]
At the very least we owe Congressman Stupak our profound thanks because he has proven that pro-life Democrats belong in the same category as the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and unicorns: things that do not exist. In some ways I would have preferred that this legislation have been pushed through via the Slaughter rule. [...]
Well this manages to pretty neatly encapsulate everything that is wrong with our culture. “I’m doing this to de-mystify abortion,” she says. “I’m doing this so other women know, ‘Hey, it’s not nearly as terrifying as I had myself worked up thinking it was.’ It’s just not that bad.” These are the words of Angie [...]

Creative Minority report continues their series this week on Baby Gianna here. Also take a look at their post today about Catholic hospitals. Both are well worth reading.

Today is the second installment of this gut-wrenching series over at Creative Minority Report. Please read it and be prepared to come away infuriated over what takes place at certain “Catholic” hospitals.

Creative Minority Report has begun a series of posts on a crisis pregnancy, and part one is up here. They will be posting each day throughout the week, as they write: This is the first part in a week-long series telling this incredible and gut-wrenching true story about life, death, abortion, and betrayal. We ask [...]

Cost of a Super Bowl advertisement: $2.5 million. Running a relatively harmless commercial where the main message is “Mother loves her son, considers him a miracle” that drives pro-aborts insane with rage, thus showing them for the anti-life monsters that they truly are: Priceless.

Not because it is hard to believe that someone is stating this, but because it was written by Sally Jenkins and printed in the Washington Post. Most of this could have been written by, well, me. I’m pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I’ve heard in the past week, I’ll take [...]
Patrick Archbold has asked that Catholic bloggers publish the Non Nobis prayer below as a way of giving thanks to God for the turn of events that have taken place this week that has made ultimate passage of a health care bill that funds abortion very unlikley. As Patrick says, we still have a very [...]
