Roughly a year ago, we covered a story about a man accused of tricking his girlfriend (who was less than seven weeks pregnant) into taking the abortion drug Cytotec in order to kill their unborn child.
We wrote at the time:
“…Andrew John Welden is accused of first-degree murder. Not a crime against Lee, but a crime against a baby. A baby that Remee Lee could have killed legally for another four months, if it had been her choice, instead of his. While for herself, Lee can only claim “battery and emotional harm”, the federal grand jury’s charges could put Weldon in jail for murder.
The NHS babies-as-heating-fuel story was so horrific, so impossible sounding, that it almost literally defied belief. We were (and are) understandably tempted to look away, ignore it, or convince ourselves it didn’t happen. Or at least that it somehow certainly couldn’t happen again.
But we can’t: it did happen. It is real. And for it not to happen again demands not only our examination, but our courage and our honesty, as well.
We saw last year with the Kermit Gosnell trial that the press doesn’t like covering stories which make it uncomfortable. So we have to seek out the truth, and we have to remember it, and we have to tell it to others.
And in case of this story we’d better do it quickly. Before it, like its innocent subjects, is tossed away and forgotten:
This isn’t supposed to be how freedom works.
It’s not supposed to come down to one decision that’ll allow the Federal Government to remove our God-given rights and turn our lives upside down. Yet back in June of 2012 that’s exactly what happened, when the Affordable Care Act was given the go-ahead by the Supreme Court.
And as tragic as that day was, here we are (again) battling another aspect of the same insatiable, freedom-eviscerating law.

I just told my wife about this excellent piece by NRO’s Kevin D. Williamson. If you haven’t seen it, please do so now: it is absolutely required reading…

A follow-up of sorts to an earlier post detailing the alarmingly racist outburst from Alabama Representative Alvin Holmes (“Racism: the Left’s Favorite Card to Play“)
So sit back and let PJTV’s AlfonZo Rachel put some truth to ya’, as only he can. But before you watch Zo’s video below, first ask yourself one question: “How much have you seen, or heard, about Holmes’s diatribe in the national media?”
Then ask yourself why:

What can you even say about this?
(via Lifesite News) – Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told an interviewer on Thursday that “I don’t know that it’s really relevant” to consider when life begins when discussing abortion.
It is plainly evident that President Barack Obama doesn’t respect the Constitution of the United States. He’s content to sidestep Congress in order to illegally appoint people to Cabinet positions, change existing laws on his latest whim, and completely ignore laws with which he doesn’t agree.
Why is he setting so many dangerous precedents? Even if you favor his policies, it should concern all of us that he’s being so brazen in overstepping his Constitutional authority to implement them.

Thought I’d include an old cartoon from the always brilliant pen of Steve Kelley, as it very neatly summarizes the two simultaneous narratives we hear from the so-called “pro-choice” side of the aisle.
