Roundup du jour

Been there, done that, hated it... though she still tells herself it was necessary. Which is probably the only way she can think of to cope at all: See My Story, Hear My Words (HT: JJ)

Margaret Sanger is alive and well and living in the blogosphere, says Dawn Eden of a woman trying sneak one of the girls in her 4-H group off for an abortion the girl has already rejected. The girl's family have said they'd welcome the baby. The girl is contemplating a possible adoption plan. But the reincarnated Saint Margaret seethes: "There is only one cure for [poverty and ignorance], and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them." And I'm writing to National 4-H and asking if they know one of their adult mentors is usurping the parental role with one of their kids.

Nathan Sheets ponders how the abortion lobby can possibly postulate that more abortions could have done anything to address the increase in tabulated maternal mortality. Since a lot of these deaths are due to sudden unforseen obestrical emergencies, what would the abortion lobby have us do? Never mind -- I already know. Warren Hern told a NAF meeting that he wanted to see abortion as the default "treatment" for every pregnancy unless the woman can prove that she got pregnant intentionally, is in good health, is in peak financial and social form, etc. In other words, mandatory abortions for everybody Hern, personally, thinks ought not to be having kids. Pro-choice? Sure.
