Cosmo’s approach to abortion falls short


This week the Guttmacher Institute, former research arm of Planned Parenthood, released a report on America’s abortion rate, “Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2011.” Covering 2008 to 2011, this is the sixteenth such report, in which Guttmacher surveys providers about the number of abortions they performed. Their results are more accurate than even the CDC’s abortion surveillance, which does not collect data from states with notoriously high abortion rates, such as California. Guttmacher’s report is a powerful indicator of the state of pre-born babies’ human rights in the U.S. Read more…

My debate with a pro-abortion libertarian

Before the March, we went back and forth over Bridges’ claim that “a woman has a property right in her body” and so “abortion … is not murder but really eviction.” …

Powerful video reminds us that science is clear on when life begins
In a battle over partial birth abortion in 1999, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said to Rick Santorum that life begins “when you bring your baby home, when your baby is born … the baby belongs to your family and has all the rights.” The debate about when life begins stirs all sorts of illogical assertions, and a new video seeks to set the truth of life in the heart of America.

Our favorite conspiracy theorist: sanctity of life just a front for policing women’s sex lives
Imagining ulterior motives for pro-lifers is perhaps pro-abortion commentators’ favorite pastime. Though staggeringly condescending, and a near-guarantee to derail any hope of productive dialogue between the two sides, it’s nevertheless inevitable that those supporting the power to murder one’s unborn sons and daughters will develop intense defense mechanisms to avoid thinking about the horror they champion. If they can convince themselves that nobody else really believes that abortion is murder, they feel exempted from having to confront the possibility in their own minds. Read more…
