Huckabee on 10-Year-Old Rape Victim’s Abortion Denial: “Does it Solve a Problem by Taking the Life of an Innocent Child?”

There’s a case in Paraguay involving a 10-year-old girl who was raped by her stepfather. She conceived, but she was denied an abortion by authorities. CNN’s Dana Bash wanted to know how Mike Huckabee would respond to the situation. Would he, being a white man in the Republican party, want to “force” the child to give birth to the product of an (essentially) incestuous rape? From The Blaze: The former Arkansas governor acknowledged during his “State of the Union” interview Sunday that Read more […]

Senator Lee Bright Showed Us What Real Courage Looks Like

Sometimes, compromise stains the hands with blood. Imagine it’s 1943; Nazi Germany has already terminated several millions Jews, and Hitler has no plans to slow down his genocide. However, the United States somehow convinces Hitler to consider a meeting. After much discussion, the United States and the dictator reach a compromise: Hitler will be allowed to continue killing Jews, but only Jews with last names that begin with the letters A through M. Sound fair? No, it sounds ludicrous. Who Read more […]

You Cannot Personally Oppose Abortion but Be Publicly Accepting Of It

If you think it should be legal then you don’t personally oppose abortion. “I hate abortions, but just could not make that choice for someone else.” – Barbara Bush What is moral? Moreover, what is morality? Is premeditated murder always wrong? If a man decides to decapitate his wife simply because she annoys him, is that wrong? If someone mugs a priest, is it wrong? You may think I’m asking outrageous questions–the answers to which appear obvious—but they are not so outrageous when we Read more […]

Brittany Maynard vs Lauren Hill: One is Campaigning for Death the other for Life

Oregon calls their assisted suicide law the Death with Dignity Act, but is it really dignity or the coward’s way out? Before you get your panties in a bunch, I understand why people don’t want to suffer through horrible diseases but that is not an excuse to kill yourself. Allow me to compare two different cases that have been in the news lately. First there is Brittany Maynard, the 29 year old woman who had stage four brain cancer. When she first found out that she had terminal brain cancer, Read more […]

Self-Proclaimed Christian: “I’m Pro-Choice because of the Bible”

Four years ago I was at an online forum for Christian apologetics and there I saw a post titled “Switched to Pro-Choice Based on the Bible.” The post is no longer up, but I did write about it at my personal site back then, so I still have the essence of what it was about. It was written by a self-proclaimed Christian who said that she used to be anti-abortion but has since joined the abortionists. Her “Biblical” reason for her new pro-abortion stance was basically that the Biblical verses that Read more […]

Euthanasia V. Abortion

There are certain topics that are considered “hot-button.” These are topics like gay marriage, abortion, embryonic stem-cell research, and euthanasia. These are the topics that, if you’re not me, people tend to shy away from discussing at work or at social gatherings. They tend to bring up bad blood among people that is pretty unpleasant. I’ve dealt with my fair share of hot-button conversations, most of which end with the other person raising their voice. One hot-button issue is in the news today. In Read more […]

CDC: US Murders 5% Fewer Infants!

As I was stuck in bumper to bumper traffic on my drive home for Thanksgiving, I had a lot of time to think. On a day that millions of Americans are thinking about and celebrating the blessings in their lives, the CDC put out its annual report detailing the abortion rates in the United States. According to the CDC, in 2009–the most recent year for which the information is available–abortion rates dropped the most in a decade; down by 5% from the previous year. That is to say that only 785,000 Read more […]
