By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. When I thought about reposting this story earlier today, I had intended to also write about the latest unhinged diatribe from Jessica Valenti. However, time got away from me and I will write that post tomorrow. Meanwhile, this story is very much worth reading today.

By Dave Andrusko Okay, I stipulate that there is probably nothing too zany to appear on the pro-abortion site Rewirenewsgroup.com. You have to read what they regularly produce to appreciate that “My Abortions Made Me a Mom” is pretty much par for the course. A colleague of mine just ran across Maleeha Aziz’s post which appeared …Continue reading "Nothing is too over the top for this pro-abortion site, including distorting the meaning of Mother’s Day"

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. With Mother’s Day just three days away, the reason for today’s look back at something that previously appeared at NRL News Today doesn’t need a lot of explanation.
