Hard cases make bad euthanasia laws

April 8th, 2014 Comments off
BY PAUL RUSSELL

The pro-euthanasia lobby often promotes media reports of people facing difficult prognoses who wish to end their lives rather than face inevitable deterioration. Such persons often become, for a short while, celebrities for a macabre cause. The media attention can even become addictive and provide, a distraction from their suffering or a raison d’etre.

The unspeakable link between family stability and prosperity

April 8th, 2014 Comments off
The first step to solving a problem is recognising that one exists.

Sara (not her real name) wouldn’t wish single motherhood on anyone. When she and her partner split, it was hard. She remembers the days of shifting emotions and shifting locations. And of course it was hard financially – which, she adds, it still very much is. Read more…

Does equality breed violence against women?

April 8th, 2014 Comments off
A new report indicates that gender equality and abuse of women go hand in hand.

The statistics in a recent international report on violence against women are deeply disturbing: one in three women has been physically or sexually abused; one in 10 has experienced sexual violence; one in 20 has been raped. Where? Not in a developing country mired in civil war, but in Europe, wealthy, women’s rights obsessed, feminist finger-wagging Europe. How can this be? Read more…

Did you know that about 45% of women who had abortions in the US in 2010, had already had at least one prior abortion?  Look it up here.   Table 19.  55% of women had zero prior abortions.  100%-55%= 45% of women had one or more prior abortions.

Just thought you’d want to know.

A sticky situation. (And a tacky title.)

At dinner one evening my sister noticed a small white glob adhered to her eight-year-old son’s cheek. She couldn’t understand how he got toothpaste on his face at dinner time.

“Wash that toothpaste off your face,” she told him.

“It’s not toothpaste,” he insisted.

“Then what the heck is it?” she asked. Read more…

The Equality Battering Ram

April 4th, 2014 Comments off

Brendan Eich has just resigned as CEO of Mozilla, maker of one of the most popular web browsers. He made a $1,000 donation to Proposition 8, back in 2008, an insubstantial sum really, to a campaign that is 6 years old. The Gay Lobby, the current shock troops of the Sexual Revolution,  demanded his resignation, or a show trial in which he repudiates his actions, or preferably, both. 

Listen to this short statement from one of the principals in the dispute, Geoffrey MacDougall, the Head of Development for Mozilla.  He pitches this as a conflict of rights, without taking sides as to which right should predominate. Read more…

No, Costanza Miriano is not crazy

Submissive wives, sacrificing husbands, is a model that really works.

Last week I had to call the exterminator as we have mice in the house. Seeing the big dinner I was preparing (to celebrate a special feastday) he asked me if I was Filipino. According to him, Filipinos, Hispanics and Ethiopians make the best wives since they know their place and how to treat their husbands right. He then went on to denounce his own culture (African American), where the women have become too Europeanized, engaging in a power-struggle with men, and where marriages and families almost always end up broken or dysfunctional.

On birth control women do not speak with one voice

April 2nd, 2014 Comments off

An important religious freedom case in the US Supreme Court last week had women’s groups of opposing persuasions standing outside in the sleet, brandishing banners and addressing anyone who would listen.

Part of President Obama’s health reform orders all employers except traditional religious congregations to include in their employee health insurance plans coverage of the full cost of contraceptives, including those which can cause an early abortion – or pay a fine, or restructure their business in a such way that they could be, technically, disconnected from the content of health insurance.
