Pro Abortion, Against Abortion

As I argued a few weeks ago, there are reasons for doubting Donald Trump’s conservative bona fides. But those of his critics at Fox News and in some quarters of “conservative” talk radio who level this charge against him are disingenuous, for neither are their candidates of choice conservative. I’ve already shown that Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio , to name but two notable examples, are certai ...
When Donald Trump’s critics in the Republican-friendly media blast him for not being a genuine conservative, they are correct . For roughly the last quarter of a century, Trump has spent most of his time—until about five years ago—helping to get Democrats elected and reelected. One-third of all of his political donations have gone to supporting Democrats and, by implication, their causes. Thou ...
As many (but not enough) people now know, for quite some time, Planned Parenthood has been designing their abortion services for purposes of harvesting and selling the organs of the human beings that they routinely kill. It would appear that this has gotten folks from across the political divide pretty upset. But the outrage raises questions. Either abortion is morally reprehensible or it is n ...
Feminists and other “progressives” in America cry oppression at the mere suggestion that taxpayers shouldn’t be made to subsidize abortion services. Black (and non-black) American activists scream that “Black Lives Matter” whenever a black criminal suspect dies in an altercation with police. In the meantime, there is scarcely a peep from either of these sectors when it comes to the unrelenting ...
As much as GOP politicians and their apologists in the media despise it, Donald Trump is, deservedly , the GOP presidential frontrunner at the moment. To Trump’s eternal credit, he has made it acceptable (or at least somewhat less unacceptable) to openly discuss the scourge that is American immigration policy. Still, intellectual honesty demands that we contend with Trump’s record, as opposed t ...
Like most of you, I was horrified to see the video of the Planned Parenthood women having wine and food while discussing abortive body parts for sale. The lack of a moral compass should outrage all of us, but yesterday, as I listened to Juan Williams on The Five say that this was "gorilla theatre" by the person who shot the video and simply an attempt to politicize abortion, I was also grieve ...
Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ latest encyclical, is quite provocative. Unfortunately, though, it provokes us to consider the possibility that its author has more in common with contemporary leftism than traditional Christianity. The Pope’s encyclical read as essentially nothing more or less than a protracted, theologized, reiteration of the same “progressive” drivel that’s been drooled upon us f ...
Leon Marlensky (an alias for a fellow academic who wishes to remain anonymous) elaborates more on his disgust over, as he sees it, the betrayal of progressivism as revealed via the coverage of the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner issue. To Those of You Who Claim to be Progressive: No event in the pop culture more attests to the right-wing’s hold over it than the celebration visited upon the Bruce/Caitlyn ...
