A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
This name will mean nothing to many of you, but those who know, know—Gary North, one of the architects of Christian reconstructionism whose work has inspired many Christian communities across America and around the world—has died. His friend reflects here.
The National Catholic Register has a scathing editorial on the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act,” a bill intended to enshrine abortion on demand as the possibility of Roe’s demise looms:
This is the most extreme piece of abortion legislation to ever receive a vote in the U.S. Senate.
What would it do? This bill would nullify every single state law regulating abortion. That includes state laws that limit painful late-term abortions and laws that prohibit abortions from being performed because of the race, sex or condition of the child. It would even end basic informed-consent laws that ensure that mothers have all the relevant information before choosing an abortion.
President Joe Biden utilized his State of the Union address this week to advocate for abortion and trample on the rights of generations of Americans yet unborn:
President Joe Biden acknowledged the attacks on abortion care during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. “The constitutional right affirmed by Roe v. Wade ― standing precedent for half a century—is under attack as never before,” Biden said, referring to the 1973 Supreme Court case that afforded a person’s right to get an abortion. “If you want to go forward ― not backwards—we must protect access to health care. Preserve a woman’s right to choose and continue to advance maternal health care for all Americans.”
Abortion activists of course, were not satisfied—and complained that Biden had yet to use the actual word “abortion.” He will soon, I’m sure.
The normally useless CBC has a wonderful article called “It’s time to stop grieving Down syndrome.” It is a welcome recognition about the contribution of these beautiful people.
