No Choice for Planned Parenthood Clinics, Abortions Required

Image of Planned Parenthood signWhile Planned Parenthood wants us to believe that it’s all about women’s health, pro-lifers say that PP is all about killing babies, and Rush Limbaugh has often suggested that abortion is virtually a sacrament to these people. Surely these are mischaracterizations. Surely.

Here’s an interesting news story that presents a surprising point of view. The Houston Chronicle reported in August, that a Planned Parenthood clinic in Amarillo and one in Corpus Christi were forced to pull out of the Federation because Planned Parenthood Federation of America adopted a policy, approved by vote of affiliate representatives, that will require affiliates nationwide to provide abortion in at least one clinic, starting in 2013.

Nevertheless, I make one plea of Senator Santorum.  Please, please, stop touting your authorship of that impotent piece of legislation called the Partial Birth Abortion (PBA) Ban Act. There are several reasons why you should stop, now. Continue reading

The latest CBS New/New York Times poll on the Republican candidates was released yesterday. It shows Herman Cain leading the pack with 25% support among Republican primary voters and 32% among Tea Party supporters.

The top four candidates in this poll, Cain, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul, all show a steady upward trend in the three CBS/NYT polls (9/16, 10/3, and 10/25) with Cain having the strongest upward trend. The polls show steady erosion of support for Perry and Bachmann with Perry having the sharpest down trend. Indecision also decreased from 22%-14% (from 18% to 8% in the Tea Party subset). Santorum and Huntsman have held steady at around 1%-2%.

Observations:      Continue reading
