The moral bankruptcy on the abortion issue accrues to those who believe in sacrificing a living woman to her fetus. Denying a woman access to an abortion is a hard stance to reconcile with her inalienable natural rights - among others life, liberty and the pursuit of her own happiness. Religionists have a constitutional right to practice their myths and superstitions, but only in their own lives. It's tyranny when they try to impose them on others with the sanction of the state.

The decrying of theocratic tyranny has been replaced with that of a state tyranny, albeit soft-peddled and well-meaning.

What's the chance that Buzz is voting for obama and his HHS mandate which will FORCE religious institutions and individuals who don't believe in abortion sterilization and birth control pills to pay for all of the above, and force health care professionals to participate.
The obamatrons will be sacrificing at least half of what now exists as health care on the altar of abortion.

As Richard Mourdock’s Indiana Senate fate hinges on how voters absorb his views on rape, all conservatives have an opportunity for a look in the mirror.

Just how pro-life do we want to be?

The Mourdock controversy is nothing like Todd Akin’s self-inflicted wound in Missouri, the result of an embrace of just plain bad medical information.

Mourdock is in hot water for accurately (if not particularly skillfully) articulating what God instructs about the life of the unborn.

If he is on politically shaky ground, it is because he had the courage to stand on the...
