“Never Too Early” to remind us unborn children are already part of the family

By Dave Andrusko Once again, I saw what I’m guessing will be the most powerful, if indirect, prolife message I will encounter today while jogging on the treadmill. I was able to read the scrawl that ran underneath an ad for a car. Even without hearing the music, it was easy to sense the intimacy …

Nebraska breaks filibuster, success in passing Abortion Pill Reversal bill is near

By Dave Andrusko Pro-lifers in Nebraska are one step away from sending LB209, Abortion Pill Reversal Information, to Gov. Pete Ricketts. The measure had been stymied by a pro-abortion filibuster until Thursday. “We thank the 35 Senators who voted to invoke cloture today and overcome a filibuster of LB 209” said Julie Schmit-Albin, Executive Director …

Understanding the abortion “language war” and the unyielding perseverance of pro-lifers

By Dave Andrusko For the last post of the week, I’d like to comment on two abortion-related stories that appeared this week in the pro-abortion-to-the-hilt New York Times but were, by and large, remarkably balanced. This is not to be confused with the usual hyperbole-strewn NYTimes coverage but to acknowledge some darn good work. (Time …

What could make a mother more supportive of “later abortions”? Her own preemie survives (and thrives)!

By Dave Andrusko Coming from a perspective that enshrines “choice,” if there is any sure thing, it is that no matter what the outcome, the decision must always rest exclusively in the hands of the mother. What if the choice is for life? No matter, the proper measuring stick is not that the baby is …

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd says Democrats should “plow through” and candidly support abortions late into the third trimester

By Dave Andrusko If Democrats needed any additional motivation to go off the deep end, it was on display Tuesday. MSNBC host Chuck Todd interviewed Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, a high-powered pro-abortion PAC which funds only female Democrats and only female Democrats who are pro-abortion without exception. Even Schriock was evasive when Todd …

Let’s count the many pro-life dimensions of “mutuality”

By Dave Andrusko I try as often as I run across them to bring to our readers’ attention commercials which are in no way intentionally pro-life but which affirm the importance of unborn life and our duty to protect these babies. As it happens I first saw “Lake” out of the corner of my eye …

The latest CBS News poll on Roe reversal as flawed as ever

By Dave Andrusko Let’s say for the sake of argument, when pollsters ask about Roe v. Wade they are serious about finding out what the public is thinking about reversal (which is the question they most often ask). Not that they are, but let’s pretend they are. So CBS News asked two questions about Roe …

Trial opens in challenge to four Virginia abortion laws, including physicians-only requirement

By Dave Andrusko One week after he reversed himself and said a trial was needed after all, U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson heard Monday from a man who served as the medical director of a Planned Parenthood chapter in Oregon who testified that abortion is “one of the safest medical procedures that exist” and …

Why Democrats must be soft on infanticide

By Dave Andrusko Elsewhere today I plan to write about a post that appears on a pro-abortion site that cynically dismisses as “just politics” our concerns over babies aborted because they have Down syndrome. If you read my interpretation of the writer, you’ll see that the only way they can live with their consciences is …

Vincent Lambert is being starved to death as final appeals fail

By Dave Andrusko Early this morning Vincent Lambert was placed in an “end-of-life” process, meaning he is now being deprived of both food and water. Unless there is a miracle, the 42 year-old Lambert will die, primarily of thirst, in the next few days. Lambert’s family is bitterly divided. His parents are adamantly against withdrawing …

Too bad they can’t be sued for journalism malpractice

By Dave Andrusko How does it go? “There are none so blind as those who will not see.” Case in point, media bias in general, absurd pro-abortion media bias, in particular. Periodically, various media outlets make a gesture (it’s never more than that) in the direction of treating both sides to the abortion debate in …

What abortionists say when they get together

By Dave Andrusko Some of the most revealing comments ever about abortion have come from “abortion providers.” In one sense that would seem obvious. Who knows more about the day-to-day killing that the “abortion doctor”? (Actually, come to think of it, the nurses who clean up after them, might.) In another sense, however, if we …
