Why Wendy Davis Defends Abortion: To Justify Her Own

We all know Wendy Davis defends abortion. She became famous for doing so when she filibustered the Texas state legislature to prevent them from restricting some abortions. I remember her speaking strongly against men who oppose abortion, saying that they shouldn’t control women’s lives. But I have to ask, should we only allow those who have killed before have control over all national laws against homicide? Should murderers decide the penalties for taking another’s life? I suppose it Read more […]

Healthy but Old: Then We Are Happy to Help You Kill You!

In Switzerland, the official practices have changed. Up until now, Switzerland had (and still does!) a barbaric assisted suicide law. Rather than try to help people or talk them out of committing suicide, the law in Switzerland is that you can be “helped” in the task of destroying your own life. But for all its boldness, the law was actually passed by cowardice. Just like Barack Obama signing off on indefinite detention while “promising” he won’t use the provision in the law, the Swiss Read more […]

This is Your Society on Euthanasia. Get the Picture?

From the euthanasia utopia of Belgium we find a woman complaining that her mother was killed by a doctor. The “reason” for this killing was that her mother came to the doctor complaining of depression. According to the doctor, that complaint constituted a diagnosis and rationalization for snuffing her out. According to Lifesite news, the daughter, “Margot,” asked, “how could someone who has not even received treatment for depression, get euthanasia?” If she is right, the doctor considered Read more […]

Baby Born Dead Then Starts Breathing 25 Minutes Later; Doctors Don’t Know the Future

We live in an age that pretends to have made great strides in medical science. Maybe we have, but there are still many “anomalies.” The latest fad in medical ethics is to start legally recognizing the “voluntary” euthanizing of children—and to illegally euthanize many more. This sort of movement is premised on the idea that we know when we should give up. It implies that we can predict that life is not ever going to get better on the basis of medical knowledge. But that premise is Read more […]

Death Panels In Belgium Soon To Be Rated G

Actually, they already are. But the New York Times story leaves that out of the picture. Before becoming law, the changes must be voted on by the Parliament’s lower house, which is expected to take up the matter before elections in May. The measure seems likely to pass, and would put Belgium in a separate category from almost any other nation when it comes to allowing the terminally ill to choose to die. The idea of euthanasia for children has been taboo in most countries, not only for religious Read more […]

How Death Panels Work Without Being Legal

Guaranteed: Unless Obamacare is killed… the elderly and infirm will be. Once government makes all the decisions on who gets care and when, you’ll have nowhere to turn—even if you have the money to pay. Big hearts and no brain activity leads to terrible outcomes. Think, people! If a consummate, pathological liar is the one promoting something, do you really think it’s going to be good for you? From The Telegraph: More than 450,000 frail elderly and disabled people who would until recently Read more […]

What You Know Just Ain’t So: Evolution

A man known as Josh Billings, one of the leading American humorists during the second half of the nineteenth century, once said this: “It ain’t what a man don’t know that makes him a fool…It’s all the things he does know…that just ain’t so.” I think we can heartily agree that it’s a problem when a man or woman takes action based on beliefs that are flawed.  It’s really a recipe for disaster. The same is true for a culture and its government.  No matter how much Read more […]

Obamacation: Death Panels are Still Going Live

LifeNews.com reports: Freshmen and sophomores in a social studies class at St. Joseph-Ogden High School in Illinois were asked to make life-and-death decisions concerning people they’d never met…  The lesson began by telling students that ten people shared a serious problem: Without access to a dialysis machine, they would all die. Unfortunately, they were told, the local hospital only has enough machines for six of them. The assignment was to decide who got the treatment and who didn’t. Read more […]

USA Today Spins Coming Obamacare Disaster For Hospitals

The fact that this story is put out as if it were rational information about a topic shows you how deeply the American media is committed to Big Government and would rather believe politicians than use their brains. USA Today’s sub-headline says it all: One thing about the Affordable Care Act is clear: Hospitals will exist in a world where they are rewarded more for the quality of care than for the volume of patients they treat. How is anyone going to be able to measure and price “quality”? Read more […]

House of Horrors Abortionist Writes Abortion Poem & Reads Bible In Prison

Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of brutally murdering several babies that were born alive.  The jurors who heard the case had to endure the testimony of how Gosnell took the live babies and shoved a pair of scissors into the back of the neck and then cut the spinal cord.  The babies did not die instantly.  It took seconds to a minute for them to die from heart failure and suffocation. The jurors also heard testimony of how he and his staff allowed a woman to bleed profusely for nearly five Read more […]

Vermont Legalizes Assisted Suicide: Death Panels?

Vermont became the fourth state to legalize assisted suicide. Of course, they don’t call it that. And they don’t call it euthanasia either. They call it “death with dignity.” It’s hard to believe that people were actually cheering on the Vermont Governor as he signed the Death with Dignity Act into law. What about this is worthy of cheering? Now, there are certain stipulations in the new law that place restrictions on who can and cannot receive “end-of-life” drugs to hasten their Read more […]

How One Man’s Compromise Derailed Social Conservatives

Dr. C. Everett Koop died. He was 96. Koop was the co-author of Whatever Happened to the Human Race? and an anti-abortion, anti-euthanasia  advocate. He was also a huge disappointment to conservatives. He became Surgeon General under Ronald Reagan. Liberals attacked him because of his anti-abortion stance and his relationship with Christian apologist Francis A. Schaeffer. “Foes noted that Koop traveled the country in 1979 and 1980 giving speeches that predicted a progression ‘from liberalized Read more […]
