  • A Civil Public Debate?
    The Test Cases of Abortion and Homosexuality - Post by Greg LaNave, 4/5/2011

    “Every now and then a commentator will say, about some politician's display of invective, "He must not have gotten the notice about the 'new civility.'" It is easy to deride the president's call for civility in public debate, either when the president or politicians supportive of his policies demonize or otherwise unfairly characterize their opponents (there is no easier charge to make in politics than that of hypocrisy), or more generally because it may seem strange to exalt civility as a supreme value when extraordinary issues of life and death are at stake. ... ”

  • Free Speech Analysis Turned Upside Down
    Forcing Americans to Show Government Regulation of Speech Is Irrational - Post by Stu Nolan, 4/3/2011

    “George Will has rightly observed -- and consistently sounded the alarm regarding -- that trend by which politicians have been attempting to outlaw criticism against them. The problem continues to grow worse. He writes about the latest (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/in-st-louis-a-protest-sign-meets-government-arrogance/2011/04/01/AFvR4wJC_story.html) here. What Will does not state, but we cannot ignore, is that the undermining of the free speech provisions of the First Amendment follows the attacks on free exercise under the guise of an overreaching reading of the non-establishment provision to somehow create a strict "wall of separation" between church and state. And of course these follow the invention of "rights" from penumbras and emanations in the "living" ever-changing Constitution. This is just more evidence of that which is manifestly clear; if the Constitution can mean anything, ultimately it will mean nothing. ... ”

  • Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood - A Connection That Cannot Be Ignored
    What Pro-Lifers Don't See - Post by Bob Laird, 4/2/2011

    “The more Planned Parenthood goes public, the more it unveils what lies behind its façade of warm community health centers"- a systematic program of deceit and deception. The latest fumbling of the leading abortion-provider in the world falls into two categories: its intrinsic link to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation (SGK), and its pretext to perform mammograms as a means of breast-cancer prevention. ... ”

  • A Sad Anniversary
    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 3/30/2011

    “Tomorrow will mark the sixth anniversary of Terri Schindler Schiavo's tragic death from court-ordered dehydration. It was the first time in our country's history that a judge ordered a feeding tube be removed from a disabled person. In previous high profile cases (e.g. Nancy Cruzan and Christine Busalacchi) the courts ruled that feeding tubes could be removed, but not that they must be. ... ”
