Some Feminists Love Abortion on Demand But Hate Governor Sarah Palin
by Joan Swirsky
Why are the retro-feminists in the left-wing media, the National Organization of Women, and the abortion lobby, among other hysterics, militating so violently against Sarah Palin? It's because they value abortion-on-demand over every other subject on earth. This "value" started in the late 1950s - before abortion became de rigueur - when the Food and Drug Administration approved the birth-control pill developed by Dr. John Rock and two collaborators. For the first time in human history, women had a measure of control over their fertility, which gave them a greater chance to pursue economic independence and escape bad marriages. But in just a few years - aided by the even-then left-wing media - feminists managed to convince a gullible public that most of the bedrocks of American life were bad. Of course, the first most-cherished tenet of the feminist movement has always been abortion-on-demand - the "right" of women to put their "interests" (and moods and convenience) before giving birth to an unwanted child. This "inconvenience" has cost over 50-million babies their rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness since the Supreme Court enacted Roe v. Wade in 1973. This "right" is heartily endorsed by Barack Obama, who has: Said that women shouldn't be "punished" with babies if they weren't in the mood to have them. Co-sponsored the "Freedom of Choice Act" (S-.1173) that would make partial-birth abortion legal again, require taxpayer funding of abortion, and invalidate all state and federal limitations on abortion, including parental-notification laws.

Pastors Endorse John McCain Over Abortion to Overturn IRS Regulations
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A group of pastors issued endorsements for John McCain on Sunday morning in a concerted effort to overturn a decades-long rule prohibiting endorsements from the pulpit. The pastors are aided by a pro-life law firm, the Alliance Defense Fund, and say the rule violates their free speech rights. Pastor Luke Emrich of New Life Church in West Bend, Wisconsin told his congregation on Sunday that he supports Senator John McCain because of his pro-life position on abortion. Rev. Ron Johnson Jr. also joined in the national campaign, known as "Pulpit Freedom Sunday," and he is the senior associate pastor at Living Stones Church in Crown Point, Indina. Johnson also said abortion is the key issue in the campaign for Christian voters and highlighted the division between Obama and McCain. "If a candidate supports something that is evil and wicked from a biblical perspective," Johnson said, "then I have the right to call out the wickedness, and I have the right to say this is what this person stands for -- this is wrong." The Rev. Jody Hice of Bethlehem First Baptist Church outside of Atlanta also endorsed McCain and said he based his recommendations on McCain's opposition to abortion compared to Obama's strongly pro-abortion position. "These are not political issues," Hice said. "They are are moral issues." Full story at LifeNews.com.
