Tebow Super Bowl Ad Controversy Proves “Pro-abortion” not “Pro-choice”

Sarah Palin has written a note on her Facebook page on the move to oppose an ad that’s scheduled to be run during the Super Bowl. The active opposition to the ad by the National Organization for Women (incorrectly named, btw) and other groups, shows just how pro-abortion, rather than pro-choice, they are. The 30 … Continue reading

Politics bites science

For a clear outline as to why you shouldn’t believe that 45,000 people die each year because they don’t have insurance, read the blog entry by John Milloy, publisher of “Junk Science” on last week’s report in the American Journal of Public Health. Forget that the authors are blatantly biased members of the “Physicians for … Continue reading

Obama cancels meeting of President’s Council Bioethics

I wonder whether the new commission/committee/council will have even one pro-life member? Will Robert P. George (one of only 3 or 4 conservative bioethicist with tenure at a major university), for example, have a spot? And remember the fuss and bother when some of the members of President Bush’s Council were replaced in March, 2004? … Continue reading

Human cloned embryos

Oddly, there is very little notice of the confirmation that Advance Cell Technology has created cloned human embryos. Current bioethics and science reporting evidently takes the creation and destruction of human embryos for granted. In fact, the embryonic humans were created with the intention of destroying them. No one – or almost no one – … Continue reading

Texas teens form pro-life club

And, it seems that the kids in Coppell, Texas (near Dallas) are only “anti-abortion” because of the undue influence of their families and churches. From the Dallas Morning News: Abortion rights advocates say it’s even harder for them to organize high school students because of the focus on abstinence. “We’re up against a movement that … Continue reading

>The (manufactured) Stem Cell Debate at Dartmouth

>I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a report on a presentation that allowed half the space for “debate,” after the fact. The Stem Cell Debate at Dartmouth Sunday, November 16, 2008 Father Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D. was recently invited to give a lecture entitled “Stem Cells and Cloning: Understanding the Scientific Issues and the Moral Objections” … Continue reading

George on “Obama and Infanticide”

“Obama chose to defend the widest possible scope for legal abortion by building a fence around it, even if that meant permitting a child who survives an abortion to be left to die without even being afforded basic comfort care.” Two of the greatest ethics minds today explain the controversy surrounding Senator Barack Obama’s blatant … Continue reading

Half the abortion rate

That’s a quote from NARAL (“National Abortion Rights Action League” ), in a report on the effects of the Hyde Amendment (a pdf document). The Hyde Amendment restricts federal funding of abortions, including those for women who are eligible for prenatal care funding by Medicaid. NARAL urges us to examine the record of John McCain … Continue reading

>Everyone else does it

>The American Medical Association and the American Medical Student Association are both up in arms about contact between drug companies and other vendors and doctors and medical students. And yet, no one complains when a New York Times story about the fuss contains advertising. (Free registration required — is “free” anything undue influence?) I’ve said … Continue reading
