*sigh*First he acquiesces in the inference (watch the clip, if you don't get that from the transcript) that the Republican party is similar to the Nazis, and now he says abortion is A-okay. Someone remind me why Michael Steele was a good choice to be head of the GOP?
Time for a reminder
The time will come when future generations look back in horror that we ever allowed the aborting of babies in a similar fashion, though with a greater abhorrence, to the way we look back in horror at the time when our nation considered others to be less than human because of the color of their … Continue reading Time for a reminder
Nothing is perfect
As much as I enjoyed the Super Bowl, I was disappointed that NBC saw fit to include Danica Patrick in the shower, but declined to show an innocuous ad celebrating the potential of human life. Now, let's be clear, NBC is perfectly within their rights to decline to show any ad of which they disapprove. … Continue reading Nothing is perfect
Pro-Life vs. Pro-Abortion
Why do I think "Pro-Choice" is really a misnomer? Things like this. When one worries about a decline in the number of abortions, then I think it's fair to say that any talk of "choice" is a smokescreen. The doctor in the article is more likely a proponent of eugenic abortion.

A couple articles about abortion.
First up is the one intended to be a heart-warming tale about family that instead presents a ghoulish portrait of how far England has sunk. A woman attempts to abort one of the twins she is carrying and then expects this tale of his survival to be a cheery tale. How is the boy going … Continue reading A couple articles about abortion.
Stupid, stupid name.
Just finished reading Freakonomics, which is the dumbest name for a book possible while still retaining some connection to the material in the book. That aside, the book is not at all what I expected it to be. There really wasn't much to it in terms of hard data and there was lots of sensationalist … Continue reading Stupid, stupid name.
Who’s Your Daddy?
David Frum comments on an article in the Washington Post a while back. You don't even have to read the whole article to get his drift. The bits he excerpts should be sufficient to understand his point.And please don't tell me that this is a matter of personal choice. The sperm donation industry exists only … Continue reading Who’s Your Daddy?
