Now Your Momma Can Abort You After You Are Born

I haven’t read the Obama Healthcare act, but I’ve heard rumors that it vastly broadens the rights of women to abortions. You may wonder what further abortion rights women need. It was determined thirty-nine years ago, in the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, that women — who had been legally banned from having abortions…

The Man Vote

A story reported ad nauseam this and every other election cycle is the fact that The Democrats poll better among women than Republicans.  The current Gallup poll has Mr. Obama ahead among women by 8%.  Even if you have been a regular consumer of news you may not know that this same poll has Romney…

Wolf whistles offend some but killing the unborn does not.  One such person is Princeton philosophy professor Elizabeth Harman who was offended by this billboard.  She posted it on Facebook, someone blogged about it, which then prompted Holly Kearl, founder of the Washington-based organization “Stop Street Harassment” to start a petition drive to have it removed.  And,…

A lot has been written recently about the Obama Administration and the controversy with the Catholic Church.  The mandate in Obamacare requires all employers to provide birth control to their employees as well as abortifacients – the morning-after pills that can contribute to the abortion of a fertilized egg.  Obviously, the Catholic Church’s teachings oppose…

My husband and I were recently in New York for a few days to enjoy the Christmas trees, window displays, and decorations.  While visiting St. Patrick’s Cathedral, I planned to buy a gift for my grand niece who will be receiving her First Communion in May.  I was shocked to see that a music box commemorating a…

Lingering Thoughts of the Past Week

A few stories in the news piqued my interest this past week. One was the story of the eventual death of a 2-year old toddler who, a week earlier, was run over by not one, but two vans in China and left in the street to die while 18 bystanders rode or walked by before someone finally stopped and…

Tolerant? Broadminded? Really?

Here’s an “exchange of ideas” which took place on Twitter just this past week.  Unlike me and Jeff who use our real names, the “someone who obviously doesn’t agree with me” doesn’t give his or her name on Twitter.  (And for those you aren’t familiar with Twitter, you’re allowed only 140 characters to say something…
