Davy Crockett isn’t the only one from Tennessee helping to make an upset in Texas.

Check out 11 Smith’s for Huckabee.

They want you to watch this video.

A sad story

February 23, 2008

A young woman aborted her twins.  Then in grief, hung herself.

The Guttmacher website has a presentation called “An overview of abortion in the United States” that I’ve been posting clips from.  One of the slides, talks about the long-term safety of abortions.  The last bullet is:

Abortion does not pose a hazard to women’s mental health.

Obviously, their study is not supported by this woman’s tragedy.

This issue alone is enough reason to stand with Mike Huckabee.

Condi: I’m not running for VP

Evidently, Condi Rice isn’t interested in running for VP with McCain.

Socialized Medicine – an example of things to come

February 23, 2008

This is why socialized medicine is not the answer. A woman developed an infection that put her in a coma during childbirth. After two weeks, the hospital told the husband they would pull the plug on her. Desparate, her husband nagged her back to consciousness.

I’m wondering about the quality of care. How much effort did they put into treating this woman? Scary.

More details here.

Another reason to support Mike Huckabee.  He supports the National Human Life amendment.

Feminist Philosophers

February 22, 2008

Steven Covey says, “Begin with the end in mind.” So, my last sentence first.

In the case of the unborn, the innocent, the prevention of abortion is about protecting a life, not interfering with one.

I’m not sure how I got there, but, I ended up on a wordpress blog called Feminist Philosophers. There is a lot of very mature content, so, I’m not going to link it. But, I did check. If you google Feminist Philosopher you can get there.

Anyway . . . there is a post from one of the readers that suggests that since the government has control over women’s bodies (preventing abortion), then why shouldn’t the government force vasectomies. Filed under “reproductive rights.” The suggestion is that it will prevent unwanted pregnancies. Of course the post is a farce (I hope) and only intended to initiate thought that government preventing abortions is somehow unfair to the pregnant woman.

Government control of citizens is not new. In fact we face it everyday. As much as I wanted to drive my 1971 Buick GranSport at 120 mph everyday, it was illegal. The main reason is that it isn’t safe. Driving that fast may kill some innocent bystander (not to mention myself).

As much as some people want to walk through the mall shooting the lightbulbs out of the ceiling, gosh, it’s just not safe – innocent people could be killed.

I even saw a documentary on base jumping. People climb up a building and parachute off. Again, just not safe for the people walking the street beneath them (and once again illegal).

In the case of the unborn, the innocent, the prevention of abortion is about protecting a life, not interfering with one.

In their own words

From Guttmacher

Causes of Abortion Related Deaths:

  • Infection
  • Hemorrhage
  • Embolism
  • Anethesia
  • Other

Does the actual abortion fall into Other? Or should it have it’s own category?
