Some pro-lifers are calling for this video to be removed from YouTube, but I think that would be a mistake. This video, whether intentionally or not, shows how abortion is really about keeping men from having to deal with the consequences of their actions. Far from “choosing” abortion, many women who have had abortions state they felt pressured into aborting a child they would have liked to have kept.
Abortion is the irresponsible man’s best friend: a loophole in case the girl he’s using get pregnant. This video shows that and that abortion is one more manifestation of violence against women.
Idaho Becomes First State to Criminalize Coercing a Woman to Have an Abortion
Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter signed a bill into law on Thursday that makes Idaho the first state to legally forbid individuals from forcing a woman to have an abortion.
House Bill 654 criminalizes any physical harm or threats used with the intention of inducing an abortion.
Thanks to the new law, “a woman or girl wronged by a predator or abusive partner would not have to wait upon the mercies of some prosecuting attorney to seek justice – even after an abortion. In fact, the language of the law allows a woman to seek civil damages even if she doesn’t undergo an abortion,” explained an Idaho Chooses Life web report.
“We currently have laws that protect a woman’s right to choose abortion but virtually nothing that protects a woman from being forced into having an abortion. Predators, abusive boyfriends and angry mothers and fathers have been violently coercing women into getting abortions for years,” stated Brandi Swindell of Engage the Culture in a March testimony to the House committee looking at the bill.
Planned Parenthood, that “champion” of women’s rights, opposed the bill.
Planned Parenthood of Idaho expressed disappointment over the enactment of the new law on their website. Instead of the anti-coercion legislation, the Planned Parenthood encourages more programs dealing with domestic abuse, increased contraceptive distribution, and the development of “comprehensive sex education” programs.
Would have been bad for business, no doubt….
Komen Gave Planned Parenthood Abortion Businesses Over $700K Last Year
A new report from a Planned Parenthood watchdog finds chapters of the Komen Race for the Cure breast cancer group gave affiliates of the national abortion business over $700,000 last fiscal year. The enormous amount should be a red flag to pro-life advocates, one leading activist says.
Figures from STOPP International show Komen chapters giving $711,485 from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006 to Planned Parenthood affiliates.
If you’ve been a donor in the past, ask the Komen Foundation to stop funding abortion. And note, this is just one year of funding. Who knows what’s happened in the past or is still going on.
The Official Website of The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation
Today is the third anniversary of the starvation death of Terri Schiavo, whose only crime was not to die as quickly her husband, who had moved in with another woman and fathered two children with her while using money set aside for Terri’s care to get legal permission to kill her. Visit the above site to learn more about the truth of this case and how to prevent situations like it in the future.
Barack Obama Would Take Back Vote Helping Terri Schiavo Avoid Euthanasia
Senator Barack Obama debated his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night and said his biggest mistake was voting with a unanimous Senate to help save Terri Schiavo. Terri is the disabled Florida woman whose husband won the legal right to starve her to death.
When asked his biggest mistake, Obama said that trying to save an innocent woman’s life, trying to prevent her from being starved to death, was a big mistake. (Take note, too, that this bill passed the Senate unanimously.) As the article linked above points out, it’s not the first time he stated that either.
As Hube points out today, and I mentioned before, Obama opposed a bill that would defend the right of children born alive after an abortion attempt to live.
In my earlier post linked above, I also take note that Obama said he would not intervene militarily in Iraq, even to stop a genocide of innocent Iraqis.
So, to sum up:
* He opposes saving innocent people from being starved to death
* He opposes requiring that innocent children who are already born be saved
* He opposes trying to save the lives of innocent genocide victims
He also supports the death penalty. Who would Obama grant the right to life to?

Artificial letters added to life’s alphabet – tech – 30 January 2008 – New Scientist Tech
Two artificial DNA “letters” that are accurately and efficiently replicated by a natural enzyme have been created by US researchers. Adding the two artificial building blocks to the four that naturally comprise DNA could allow wildly different kinds of genetic engineering, they say.
Eventually, the researchers say, they may be able to add them into the genetic code of living organisms.
This just strikes me as something with potentially awful, unforeseen consequences. As Mark Shea is fond of saying, the history of the human race can be summed in two sentences “What could it hurt?” followed by “How was I supposed to know?” This falls into that category.
