California’s Radical Pro-Abortion Regime

In response to Re: Gallagher

I am continually stunned at the energy and sheer ruthlessness of Planned Parenthood defenders—including the desire to ruin the lives of those who draw blood from the abortionists by pulling back the curtain to reveal the organization’s true character.

But indicting David Daleiden on 15 felony counts crosses the border of legitimate law enforcement to using the law as a weapon of tyranny.

This isn’t the first time Daleiden was indicted. A Texas DA tried the same gambit after the Attorney General instructed that he investigate Planned Parenthood. Those charges were thrown out of court.

California is as radical as radical gets, so I am worried Daleiden will have a much more difficult time obtaining justice there.

Oakland jailed Walter Hoye, an African American pastor–unconstitutionally, it turned out–for holding a sign that read, “Jesus loves you, Baby, let us help.” inside an abortion anti-protest bubble zone. 

The state permits non-doctors to perform abortions, because there never can be enough.  It also requires crisis pregnancy centers to list information where abortions can be obtained.

And as for Daleiden receiving a fair trial from a California jury pool: Ai, yi, yi!

If Daleiden had only gone after a pig farm or stockyard with undercover videos, he would have a much easier time!

Pro-Abortion Nonsense from John Irving

The novelist has put up a lot of easy targets in his New York Times op-ed. I am going to take aim at six of his points, starting with his strongest one. First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More

Murder Mystery: An Old Comedy Genre Gets Polished Up
