Same Sex Marriage is NOT “Just as Good” for Children

June 21, 2012

A rigorous scientific study reveals that if you choose a valid study group not the small non-random populations that homosexual activists use then the outcomes for children are far worse than when the children have their mom and their dad as parents. Not always possible of course but that does not justify lying about the facts.

The study appears in the July issue of Social Science Research. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0049089X12000610

Thanks to Austin Nimocks for pointing this out in his article at Town Hall.

Alabama Puts Planned Parenthood Clinic on Probation After Undercover Sting

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

A Planned Parenthood clinic in Alabama has been put on probation by the state after an undercover sting helped reveal that underage teens had been receiving abortions there without parental consent.

State health officials said the Birmingham, Ala., abortion clinic has until next week to present its plan to correct violations involving minors receiving abortions.

Investigators with the health department said records at the clinic showed several minors aged 13-15 had received abortions without proper verification of parental consent since November 2008.

An activist with “Live Action,” a California-based anti-abortion group, posed as a pregnant 14-year-old girl who needed a secret abortion. In an audio tape from the visit, an employee allegedly suggests that someone other than a parent or legal guardian could give consent.

NYTimes OKs Super Bowl ProLife Ad

New York Times Defends Pro-Life Ad Featuring Tim Tebow, Mom’s Non-Abortion

Update:  the Focus on the Family ad is at: http://www.focusonthefamily.com/nsc/box/video_player.aspx?video=super_bowl_ad

New York, NY (LifeNews.com) — The New York Times is no bastion of pro-life thought and has taken a consistently aggressive pro-abortion stance over the years. In what may come as a shock to pro-life advocates, the liberal newspaper issued an editorial today taking abortion advocates to task for blasting an ad featuring Tim Tebow.

As LifeNews.com has reported, the ad, sponsored by Focus on the Family, will reportedly focus on the story of Tebow’s birth.

Tebow’s mother, Pam Tebow, rejected a doctor’s suggestion to get an abortion when she became ill on a missions trip to the Philippines during her pregnancy with Tim. Tebow gave birth to Tim and he famously won the 2007 Heisman Trophy and led the Florida Gators to a college football championship.

The Focus on the Family ad has drawn attacks from abortion advocates, who have called on CBS to cancel its plans to allow the ad to air before and after the Super Bowl, and feminist attorney Gloria Allred has made the claim Pam Tebow made up her story about rejecting an abortion.

The New York Times weighed in on the debate in an official editorial titled “Super Bowl Censorship.”

“The National Organization for Women, NARAL Pro-Choice America and other voices … have called on CBS to yank it,” the Times editorial board wrote. “Their protest is puzzling and dismaying.”

The Times noted how the Women’s Media Center (for a collection of pro-abortion groups) sent a letter to CBS calling for rejecting the ad, saying the commercial “uses one family’s story to dictate morality to the American public, and encourages young women to disregard medical advice, putting their lives at risk.”

Responding to the claim, the Times calls it “a lame attempt to portray the ad as life-threatening.”

In a related article Ken Shepherd at Newbusters.com (an anti-liberal political website) quotes a story by “liberal, pro-choice sports columnist Sally Jenkins” in the other national liberal newspaper The Washington Post:. She writes:

“Are you saving yourself for marriage?” Tebow was asked last summer during an SEC media day.

“Yes, I am,” he replied.

The room fell into a hush, followed by tittering: The best college football player in the country had just announced he was a virgin. As Tebow gauged the reaction from the reporters in the room, he burst out laughing. They were a lot more embarrassed than he was.

“I think y’all are stunned right now!” he said. “You can’t even ask a question!”

That’s how far we’ve come from any kind of sane viewpoint about star athletes and sex. Promiscuity is so the norm that if a stud isn’t shagging everything in sight, we feel faintly ashamed for him.

Ten Reasons to Keep Abstinence Education in N.C.

Family North Carolina Magazine—Jul/Aug 2009

by Alysse ElHage

In recent months, there have been increasing efforts in North Carolina to eliminate the focus on abstinence-until-marriage (AUM) sex education in our public schools, and return the State to an approach that is aimed at helping students avoid the consequences of early sexual activity, rather than helping postpone that activity.

In an effort to provide parents and educators with the facts they need to make informed choices about these issues, we have compiled a list of 10 reasons to maintain the focus on Abstinence-based education in North Carolina’s public schools.

Planned Parenthood Alabama ‘Bending the Rules’ of Mandatory Reporting

July 2, 2009

Employee Admits ‘Bending the Rules’ for Sexual Abuse

This is an attempt by pro-abortion folks to deliberately undermine enforcement of current laws against statutory rape.  Does anyone reading this have standing and cause to file a complaint with the Alabama Medical Association against this Dr. Bates?  I ask rather than encourage.  This is hearsay evidence; this doctor might instead be of the complete opposite mind.

BIRMINGHAM, June 30, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Planned Parenthood counselor in Birmingham was caught on hidden camera telling an alleged 14-year-old statutory rape victim that the clinic “does sometimes bend the rules a little bit” rather than report sexual abuse to state authorities. This is the seventh Planned Parenthood clinic implicated in a multi-state child abuse scandal involving the deliberate and unlawful suppression of evidence of statutory rape. (View video here http://liveaction.org/alabama/ )

She then tells Rose that the clinic manager, OB/GYN Dr. Desiree Bates, “sometimes does bend the rules a little bit” and states that “whatever you tell us stays within these walls” and “we can’t disclose any information to anybody.”

However, Alabama code 26-14-3 requires [emphasis mine] health professionals to disclose suspected cases of sexual abuse to state officials immediately.

What Do We Have Against Parents?: An Assessment of Judicial Bypass Procedures and Parental Involvement in Abortions by Minors


Vatican Authority to Reject Diplomats – a wide ranging dialog.

May 6, 2009

We (Laura and I) are exploring some interesting ground on the Internet.  Please see the debate and discussion at:

Pope rejects all of Obama’s ambassadors for being pro-choice

Someone commented “at” me.  (Here’s their entire post #1639 so I can be properly accused of editing them. http://www.topix.com/forum/news/abortion/TFQP2A7JORFA3VCDF/post1639)
Arrogant… Gee, that word keeps coming up, doesn’t it?

I replied: http://www.topix.com/forum/news/abortion/TFQP2A7JORFA3VCDF/post1645

I agree. You should at least use a thesaurus or something when insulting me. I’m not offended. I’m a volunteer here to teach. By definition the vernacular includes vulgar language. We don’t formally have High English and Low English like German has Hochdeutsch and local dialects. English does however have what your mother used to call “polite conversation.” Try it.

Now back to the real argument.
1. Does the state have the right to decide that a baby in utero is “human enough” to have human rights?
2. How do you propose that be measured in law? Is it gestational age, viability, implanted or not?
2a. What about healthy human embryos in vitro?
2b. What about selection in vitro or in vivo for gross abnormality? Downs Syndrome? sex? hair color?
(Later I added: 2c. 50% out of the birth canal?  99% out of the birth canal?  When the village elders check that it has no deformities?)
3. How do we decide? What decisions are her’s alone? Her parents’ if a minor? Her husband’s? Her boyfriend’s? Her sperm donor’s? Her anonymous sperm donor’s? Her doctor’s? Her school’s? Her university’s? The courts’?(here’s a tough one) Her statutory rapist’s?
4. What current laws are just? Which are unjust?
5. What social attitudes do not conform to the reality of the ethic you propose?
6. Who should pay for the legal procedures for citizens? legal residents? non-legal residents? residents of foreign lands?(ie via foreign aid)
7. What professions should be required to participate as part of their job?(pharmacists, doctors, nurses, aid workers, diplomats, etc.)
8. Just to get back to the point of this forum: What political and diplomatic actions are justified for the Vatican State to see their Choices on these matters are respected?

Answer these and we’ll be getting somewhere. Paint your picture and I’ll paint mine. Your’s looks pretty ugly and presented in this light – not behind the cover of democratic-sounding “Choice” – will be offensive to most Americans.
