By Dave Andrusko Okay, fill in the two-word blank. “[ _ _ ] are skilled wielders of symbolism, if not of subtlety. ” Well, if you are Nora Caplan-Bricker, the two missing words are “Abortion’s opponents”–aka, you and me. The title of her piece on Slate is “The Latest Anti-Abortion Bills Double as Devilishly Good …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists’ Credo: Never let your conscience be your guide"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. My family and I will be on vacation through August 25. I will occasionally add new items but for the most part we will repost “the best of the best” — the stories our readers have told us they especially liked over the last ten months. Once upon a time–a …Continue reading "Pro-abortionist offers narcissistic and self-defeating formula for continuing to lose"
By Dave Andrusko A brief but sincere thank you to those kind enough to take the extra step to email me for writing “How one pro-abortionist reported on NRL 2017.” As promised I’m again addressing Amy Littlefield’s post for Rewire, a pro-abortion site. But I’d like to first say a few words about Samantha Lachman’s …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists read their own biases into their coverage of NRL 2017"
By Dave Andrusko These are dark and confusing and confounding days for pro-abortionists who are floundering [struggling] as they try to avoid foundering [sinking]. That is why we see them repacking (yet again!) the decision to take the life of an unborn child in a mantra they hope will attract a wider audience. Out, for …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists critique turning abortion into an “economic issue,” their alternative just as evasive"
By Dave Andrusko I count on my trusty readers to alert me to stories that I would never have seen. Today’s example is about something I’d not even heard of: pregnant women Photoshopping their baby’s sonogram on their stomachs. From the accounts I read this actually began on the social network Flickr in 2009 and …Continue reading "What upsets pro-abortionists now? “Assigning human attributes to not-yet-human embryos”"
By Dave Andrusko You would think pro-abortionists would at least concede that, like a broken clock, pro-lifers would be correct at least twice a day. But you would be wrong. We are wrong, wrong, and wrong again. A recent example–like today–runs at the pro-abortion site rewire news under the cutesy headline, “The Worst ‘Alternative Facts’ …Continue reading "Pro-abortionist turns reality into myths and myths into reality"
By Dave Andrusko With their preferred candidate having lost the presidential election, pro-abortionists are angrier and more eager to censor than ever. If we are not alert and on guard, groups such as National Right to Life will be inundated by a wave of attempts to still our voices. This insistence on one-sidedness takes many …Continue reading "Having lost the elections, pro-abortionists more eager than ever to censor pro-lifers"
By Dave Andrusko Time is simply running out on me, so a critique of the second of two of the loopiest, out-to-sea pro-abortion essays I have ever read will have to wait until Monday. If you have time–and an iron stomach–you could read “America’s Abortion Wars” (and How to End them”), a hit piece on …Continue reading "Making the “Unthinkable” the “New Normal”"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This first ran in October 2011 and complements the update found today at “Federal Appeals Court to hear challenge to North Carolina law authorizing ‘Choose Life’ license plate.” I often wonder whether it is a bad conscience or ideology so thick that mere human emotions cannot penetrate that explains the …Continue reading "Pro-Abortionists Fear and Loathe CPCs and “Choose Life” License Plates"
By Dave Andrusko As the last post for the first day of the week, a few paragraphs about an article that appeared at Slate.com which I had tried unsuccessfully to get to all last week. Jessica Grose’s point is straightforward: “Enough With the Grueling, Wrenching, ‘I Had an Abortion’ Essays.” A year or two ago …Continue reading "Saying they need to get out of a “defensive crouch,” pro-abortionist says enough of apologizing for having abortions"
