Trump’s favorables ascending, majority now also believes he will do good job as President

By Dave Andrusko   At the same time the media onslaught against President-elect Donald Trump continues to pick up speed and some supporters of Hillary Clinton want the campaign to challenge the election results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, the American public is clearly signaling that it is time to move ahead. A CNN poll …

Public confidence in press dropping precipitously, press promises more of the same

By Dave Andrusko   On Tuesday we reposted a column by Tim Graham which outlined the public’s heading toward zero confidence in the press. Barely one in five– 22%–give the press a grade of “A” or “B,” while almost 4 in ten–38%–give the press an “F.” I also wrote yesterday about a brilliantly fair-minded analysis …

High Priority: Public Comments Needed on American Nurses Association’s New Draft Position Paper on Denying Food and Water

By Nancy Valko Editor’s note. This important request appears on Nancy’s blog.

Adoption: the hope for orphans around the world

By Joleigh Little, Teens for Life and Region Coordinator, Wisconsin Right to Life Editor’s note. November is National Adoption Month. Today we continue our series of new and reposted stories about this wonderfully life-affirming option.   It is no small coincidence, in my mind, that whoever created National Adoption Month chose November to be that month, …

Merging ultrasound and MRI researchers shows unborn babies in 3-D Virtual Reality

By Dave Andrusko Over the years I have written many times about the “old days”–back in the 1980s–and the  primitive black and white ultrasounds whose fuzziness was exceeded only by the parents’ determination to “see” arms and legs amidst a fog of blurriness. Now their successors–3-D and 4-D color ultrasounds–are about to be themselves replaced. …

Women need to be supported, not aborted!

by Béatrice Fedor   Editor’s note. This appeared at 400 words for women. Let’s face it, no one truly desires to have their children scraped out of their wombs. Women rationalize abortion and resort to it because their pregnancies are met with anger, violence or indifference. Women need to be supported, not aborted! There are pregnancy …

First misleading post-election abortion poll

By Dave Andrusko I was wondering how long it would take, following the victory of pro-life President-elect Donald Trump, for some pollster to tell us (as the Quinnipiac University Poll does today), “Despite Donald Trump’s victory, American voters are at odds with the president-elect on several key issues, agreeing with the U.S. Supreme Court Roe …

Must be the holiday season, PPFA is trying to act normal

By Dave Andrusko This will be a short post, inspired (if that’s the right word) by still another example of Planned Parenthood’s stupendous blend of insensitivity and desire (to borrow a term making the rounds) to be “normalized.” At a tweet found here, you see this photo of a  bountiful Thanksgiving  Day table, filled with …

NYTimes “Public Editor” thoughtfully critiques newspaper’s biased coverage

By Dave Andrusko   I readily confess that I put more emphasis on the coverage of the Washington Post because it is my hometown newspaper  but also because the newspaper still has enormous clout on Capitol Hill and influence in shaping political narratives, including the recent presidential election. In a newspaper whose columnists compete for …
