New Stanek WND.com column, “NYC’s bill targeting pregnancy centers: DOA”



Momentum was on their side when last October abortion proponents introduced legislation in the liberally toxic New York City Council to hamstring pregnancy care centers.

Bill No. 371, which mimics ordinances passed in Baltimore and Austin, would force PCCs in NYC to post signage that they do not commit abortions or distribute contraceptives. It would also force them to notify clients if there were no doctor in the house....

But then came a report two weeks ago from the NYC Department of Health....

For Bill No. 371, the timing of this report could not have been worse....

Now Bill No. 371 looks not only cruel but harmful to women....

NARAL didn't help its cause when it released its annual report last week, giving New York a grade of "A-" for abortion advocacy and ranking it the 12th-best state to "procure a hasty abortion," as Juno would say.

Nor did the pro-abortion think tank Guttmacher Institute help, also reporting last week that U.S. abortions are slightly up after declining for almost 20 years....

My prediction?...

New Stanek WND.com column, “Planned Parenthood’s unplanned pro-life advocate”

I, like everyone else who has opened Abby Johnson's new book, UnPlanned, couldn't put it down....

Abby's book contains several insights, but what I gained most from reading UnPlanned was a better understanding of the abortion worker's mind.

Abby challenged my preconceived notions from the start, literally, in her foreword...
Oh how we love to vilify our opponents.… How easy to assume that those on "our" side are right and wise and good; how those on "their" side are treacherous and foolish and deceptive. I have found right and good and wisdom on both sides. I have found foolishness and treachery and deception on both sides as well....

In all likelihood, as you look through the fence, you see faulty thinking and harmful behavior on the other side. Here's my question for you: are you ready to look through the fence and see goodness, compassion, generosity, and self-sacrifice on the other side?

To be honest, not really. But because I trusted Abby as one of us now, and also as one speaking from experience, I decided to open my mind a little....

Coincidentally, Abby's clinic was the first where the 40 Days for Life campaign was ever attempted.

It was intriguing to read the perspective of clinic workers observing that first historic 40 Days effort. Abby wrote....

New Stanek WND.com column, “MTV abortion special: Happy for the kill”

On Dec. 28, MTV aired the abortion special, "No Easy Decision," apparently yielding to pressure from abortion ideologues upset that its two highly rated shows on unplanned pregnancies, "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom," are both life-affirming....

If you haven't watched it, you can do so on MTV's website....

MTV aired "No Easy Decision" as a half-hour special sans commercials on a Tuesday night at 11:30 p.m., which says how much MTV really wanted to do this....

Abortion groups like NARAL and Feministing promoted "No Easy Decision" in advance. Afterward abortion proponents were elated....

Well, I've watched "No Easy Decision" four times now only to increasingly wonder what there was for the other side to crow about....

Aside from Dr. Drew's advocacy of contraception and abortion and the obviously prepped abortion clinic counselor on the phone, the reality of abortion decision-making and its aftermath came painfully through. Four of those unhelpful realities noted were...

This is the show that "thrilled" abortion proponents, as the pro-abort blog Jezebel exclaimed?

It seems to me the pro-abort crowd is by this time in the history of legalized abortion merely happy with crumbs, for the simple display of abortion, even with all its catastrophic negatives....

New Stanek WND.com column, “Pelosi’s sorest loser: Driehaus



If there were an award given for sorest losers, recently defeated Ohio Rep. Steve Driehaus would be a contender.

Driehaus is blaming the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List for his shellacking in November, going so far as to sue the PAC in federal court last week for "character defamation" and "depriving him of his livelihood."

Driehaus was one of 15 pro-life Democrats around the country who were either fired or retired last month after voting for Obamacare.

As one of those targeted for defeat by the SBA List, Driehaus is fixated on it rather than his Pelosi-whipped self as the reason for his political demise....

I would be remiss at this point not to again mention Kristen Day and Democrats for Life....

Day submitted 2 affidavits on Driehaus' behalf against the SBA List, relishing the ramifications in an Oct. 25 press statement that "[a]ll records… will have to be turned over to lawyers for Congressman Steve Dreihaus [sic]."

As we see, Day's hope lives on.

But this amounts to Day advocating a pro-life WikiLeaks: releasing internal pro-life "cables" to the general public, including the enemy.

While legal in this case, it was certainly treasonous to the movement.

New Stanek WND.com column, “Graphic abortion ad during the Super Bowl?”



For only three hours a year do Americans actually look forward to watching commercials rather than ignoring them, muting them or running to the bathroom during them, as we do the other 8,763 hours.

That is during the Super Bowl.

In fact, commercials have become part of the entertainment during football's annual big game, a cultural phenomenon.

So imagine a 30-second Super Bowl ad showing the graphic reality of abortion.

Most Americans, including many pro-lifers, would abhor such an ad.

But pro-life activists like me would be ecstatic, if such a word can be used to describe fulfillment of a passion to see a multitude of people face the truth about abortion. Activists believe that only by understanding the reality of abortion will the culture be wholeheartedly persuaded against it.

And the publicity, oh, the publicity. Recall the controversy surrounding Focus on the Family's pro-life pablum Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow earlier this year. This would be that on gigamegalo-steroids.

And there is a chance such a commercial will air during the 2012 Super Bowl....

New Stanek WND.com column, “Thankful for… a late-term abortionist”

Well, I never thought I'd be saying thanks to Nebraska abortionist LeRoy Carhart for attempting to expand his late-term abortion cartel, but that's exactly what I'm here to do.

Iowa's incoming pro-life Republican speaker of the House, Kraig Paulsen, noted on Iowa Public Television Nov. 20 that while abortion was not much of a topic on the campaign trail, Carhart's Nov. 9 announcement that he was planning to open up shop in Council Bluffs "really elevated the whole discussion."

Or, as the Des Moines Register put it, Carhart "pushed the issue, Paulsen said."

Paulsen noted that consequently there were "several" legislative options under discussion....

I expect abortion advocates are irritated with Carhart for triggering this call for more abortion restrictions. Currently NARAL gives Iowa a C+ on abortion, which is high by its standards. Pro-lifers would love for NARAL to bestow Iowa a flaming red F in the none too distant future....

There is also the issue of abortion-industry turf, which doesn't get much publicity. But Planned Parenthood of the Heartland must certainly be livid with Carhart for impinging on its territory....

New Stanek WND.com column, “Democrats for Life betrays pro-life movement”



Friends sometimes find themselves on opposite sides during political campaigns, when emotions can ride high.

Fortunately, just as opponents usually shake hands afterward, so do those friends.

But the rift that developed during the 2010 election cycle between Democrats for Life and basically the rest of the pro-life movement is irreparable, at least as long as Kristen Day remains its executive director.

Day became incensed when pro-life groups fulfilled their promise to target House pro-life Democrats for electoral defeat who voted for Obamacare sans the Stupak Amendment....

Day began publicly bashing other pro-life groups, convinced their motive was not as stated but rather to function as covert operatives for the Republican Party. From Politics Daily, Nov. 3:

"They [pro-life groups] put all their eggs in one party," said Kristen Day, executive director for Democrats for Life.… "They don't want two pro-life parties because most of them want a Republican majority."...

I suppose all the aforementioned would be forgivable after political passions died down, but then Day went too far.....

New Stanek WND.com column, “The abortion nurse’s daughter: Inside minds at the mill”

Last week I described Abigail Seidman's upbringing as the daughter of an abortion clinic nurse.

This week I'll discuss what Abigail saw inside the mill where her mother worked. I have always been intrigued with the psyche of abortion workers and asked Abigail extensively about this....

I asked Abigail if the clinic aborted women who weren't pregnant. Yes, she said, adding the clinic owner often joked "anyone who wants an abortion can have one, whether she's pregnant or not!"

I asked Abigail if due dates were ever adjusted....

"I don't remember a woman ever being turned away because she was too advanced in her pregnancy," Abigail wrote me. "The latest date I ever heard was 28 weeks, although women were always told their date was 16 weeks or less."

What did staff think of aborting mothers? "They called them 'stupid sluts' if it wasn't their first abortion, or 'brood mares' if they chose life and left before aborting," wrote Abigail.

There was one particular scandal Abigail recalled of a clinic worker who accidentally got pregnant but decided against abortion....

She would daily taunt pro-lifers by flashing her pregnant belly at sidewalk counselors, crowing, "Today's the day! I'm having an abortion!"

She didn't, of course, but continued to facilitate abortions after her daughter was born, bringing her to work so she could breast-feed. "I was charged with babysitting, upstairs in the clinic library," Abigail wrote....

New Stanek WND.com column, “The abortion nurse’s daughter”



When Abigail Seidman was 10 years old her mother had an abortion. Abigail suspects her father was not the baby's father, and her parents eventually divorced.

Abigail describes her childhood until that time as normal. But the abortion "radicalized" her mother, Abigail told me, who came to decide abortion had not only been the right decision for her but was also good in a moral sense....

Abigail's mother was and is a nurse. She became more involved in feminism and the abortion culture. She decided to switch careers and began working at her local abortion mill in Toledo, Ohio, as well as her local Planned Parenthood, which did not commit abortions.

On Abigail's 11th birthday, her mother put her on the birth-control pill, admonishing her not to have sex but to nevertheless take precautions, since she could be raped....

As Abigail's mother became more deeply involved with feminism, she told Abigail all people were naturally bisexual and androgynous and that gender and sexuality were merely social constructs. She cut Abigail's waist-length hair short, which she was not allowed to grow out again until she was an adult. She encouraged Abigail at age 12 to identify openly as a bisexual and forced her to wear GLBT pins on her backpack....

The clinic owner where Abigail's mother worked was a Wiccan. Most of her new friends followed a Wicca-oriented New Age path and worshipped fertility, warrior and death goddesses. Abigail's mother dabbled in all the aforementioned but settled on Buddhism. She banned Bibles and discussion of Christianity from the house....

When Abigail turned 13 her mother began pulling her from school on Fridays to work as a "deathscort" at her abortion mill....

New Stanek WND.com column, “Sex and consequences: Link between pro-gay and pro-abortion agendas”

Homosexual and AIDS activists heckled President Obama during a Democrat fundraiser in New York on Sept. 22, complaining about the military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy and inadequate AIDS funding.

Obama responded that his administration had increased AIDS funding and offensively added, "The people [who] will potentially take over if we don't focus on the election, I promise you, will cut AIDS funding," as if that really would happen, as if Republicans really want those afflicted with AIDS to die. Obama's comment was no different than one made by boorish Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson, who accused Republicans opposing Obamacare of wanting sick people to "die quickly."

Here's video of the heckling and remark...



In fact, worldwide AIDS funding increased dramatically under President Bush.... And Obama flatlined that funding.

But I digress. The point is that we know the most prevalent cause of AIDS in the U.S. is men having sex with men. The Centers for Disease Control has just released tragic new statistics...

The fact is, men having sex with men is bad for their health. The prevalence of AIDS is just one indicator.

Likewise, promiscuous heterosexual sex is bad for one's health, leading to a prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases - some incurable, like herpes; some incurable and deadly, like AIDS – unwanted pregnancies and infertility, to name just three physical consequences.

But where are the health warnings?...

New Stanek WND.com column, “Republican pro-life paradigm shift”

Yes, the Republican Party is the pro-life party. But the abortion issue often seems like its red-headed stepchild.

For example, the 1994 House GOP Contract with America, which provided a Republican roadmap out of that decade's liberal abyss, completely omitted any mention of abortion....

This week I'm happy to report the 2010 House GOP Contract with America is now anticipated to address the abortion issue....

I also wrote last week the pro-life political projectile right now is the tea party. Some disagree, complaining tea partiers don't necessarily want to spotlight our issue either, because it's "too divisive."

But pay attention to the sterling pro-life candidates the tea party is giving us. As John Avlon wrote at The Daily Beast Sept. 20:
But the soothing big-tent implications offered by those who say the GOP should de-emphasize social issues only seem to go one way. There is no concurrent sense of tolerance for candidates with liberal or libertarian social positions. Where are the tea party candidates who are pro-choice?


MSNBC liberal host Rachel Maddow incredulously pointed out last week that five GOP tea party-backed U.S. Senate candidates are pro-life with no exceptions: Sharron Angle of Nevada, Ken Buck of Colorado, Joe Miller of Alaska, Christine O'Donnell of Delaware and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

This is huge.... Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards understands, hence her frantic email alert Monday calling this development, "not just crazy – truly frightening."...

And, of course, there is the superfluity of pro-life female candidates, causing many to proclaim this "The Year of the Pro-Life Woman."...

New Stanek WND.com column, “GOP establishment vs. tea party on abortion”


Two conservative GOP leaders with presidential aspirations, Mitch Daniels and Haley Barbour, both recently stated they think the GOP should ignore social issues in lieu of fiscal issues.

Some think such chatter is a concerted effort emanating from establishment Republicans anxious to win over/hold on to independents heading into the 2010 and 2012 elections.

Indeed, the Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that the much-touted GOP book released that same day, "Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders," is "a manifesto of fiscal conservatism" that "avoids the hot-button social issues, including abortion and gay rights, which have been featured in previous GOP campaigns."

In addition, the Republican National Coalition for Life reports that the Republican's upcoming 2010 version of the "Contract with America" currently excludes any mention of Life issues whatsoever. RNC4L writes that pro-life stalwart Rep. Steve King is battling for the GOP to include at a a minimum a pledge to defund Planned Parenthood, the United States' largest abortion provider.

I get really, really tired of the constant, senseless battle with Republicans to uphold the sanctity of human life....
