Prolife prayer in NYC

It’s not difficult to see where the urge for fascism really is on the American political spectrum.

By Justin Katz | July 14, 2021 |

Nobody should ever accuse progressives of spending too much time on self reflection.  Consider the following, from an article for Catholic News Agency by Joe Bukuras about pro-abortion protesters’ blocking a Catholic pro-life procession: “Violence can look like a man throwing punches,” a copy of a [New York City for Abortion Rights (NYCFAR)] flyer says.…

We should follow the science on abortion.

By Justin Katz | July 3, 2021 |

Among the most fascinating (if disturbing) aspects of the abortion is that the position typically taken by the materialists implicitly rely on a mystical distinction. Most don’t want to acknowledge that their view is that it is permissible to kill some innocent human beings.  Humanity has long known that the individual human life begins at…

How many progressive movements are about inventing trillion-dollar consumer markets?

By Justin Katz | July 1, 2021 |

The market effects of political movements is an angle that doesn’t get much public consideration when the movements are on the political left.  Many a movie, book, and show relies on a plot wherein a greedy right-wing mogul seeks to despoil the planet for personal profit, but what about moguls whose profits derive from a…

There are actually two falsehoods within pro-abortion alarmism.

By Justin Katz | June 26, 2021 |

Charlotte Pence Bond emphasizes one in her recent essay on The Daily Wire.  She quotes the much-promoted speech of a Texas high school valedictorian: The speaker, Paxton Smith, had originally planned to speak to attendees of Lake Highlands High School’s graduation about the role of media in the world but decided to change it, unbeknownst…

Will the pro-life wave reach the Ocean State?

By Justin Katz | June 5, 2021 |

The Catholic News Agency highlights an “unprecedented surge” of pro-life legislation around the United States: “The unprecedented surge of pro-life activity in state legislatures this year proves life is winning in America,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. “The 61 new laws enacted and hundreds of bills introduced include legislation to stop…

A Government Buyer for Innocent Flesh

By Justin Katz | April 18, 2021 |

For the ever-growing “Are we the baddies?” file, Edie Heipel reports for the The Federalist that, pre-President Trump, the federal government was in the baby parts business: Recent emails uncovered by Judicial Watch between FDA employees and the California-based Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) prove the agency spent tens of thousands of dollars buying aborted babies…

Abortion Question Shows PolitiFact RI’s Bias and Ignorance

By Justin Katz | April 19, 2012 |

It’s a tedious exercise reviewing the ways in which the pretense of ostensibly neutral journalists to judge truth via PolitiFact investigations is tilted severely toward their political leanings. Indeed, if it weren’t for an explicit meter and the assertion that they are dealing only in facts, it wouldn’t be worth the effort. But in order…

Factional Definitions

By Justin Katz | June 16, 2011 |

Two interesting threads have emerged in the comments to my post on Republican factionalism. They’re on entirely different topics, but I think there’s something similar in the way they hinge on what I see as erroneous definitions. Quoting me, commenter Mangeek takes up the question of abortion: “I find the ‘personally pro-life; politically pro-choice’ position…

By Justin Katz | January 29, 2011 |

Just about everybody on all sides of the abortion issue will agree that a “house of horrors” condition of a medical facility is unacceptable, but I’ve yet to hear articulated a rational reason that the murders with which this doctor is being charged are dramatically different from the services that all abortion doctors are paid…
