Summer Reading

I'm taking this book on my upcoming trip to Vermont: Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Legacy: The Control of Female Fertility, by Angela Franks (McFarland and Co., 2005).

I always get a kick out of people accusing the Catholic Church or "Christian white males" of "being afraid of women's fertility and sexuality." The Catholic Church never tried to get me on birth control pills but Planned Parenthood passes them out like Chicklets. They seem to be the ones who are fearful. Why so many people still consider Planned Parenthood a charitable and humanitarian organization I'll never understand.

Several book readings and signings by the author, Angela Franks, will be held in Washington at the following locations:

August 18, at 7 pm
Marcus Whitman Hotel
Walla Walla, Wa

August 23rd
Holy Cross Church, Tacoma
5510 N 44th St.
Tacoma, Wa

August 24th
St. Cecilia's Church, Stanwood
26900 78th Ave. NW

Call Myron Miller with quesitons at 800-473-6175 for events in Seattle, Tacoma, and Stanwood.

How Right They Are

Finally words like "lies" and "misrepresentations" are becoming part of the language used when discussing abortion providers and abortion trade groups like NARAL. For too long they've been able to make patently untrue statements without challenge. Their long-time favorite is the one they ususally tell a women coming in for an abortion -- an unborn child is just a "blob of tissue". Then there's the "Roe only legalized abortion in the first trimester" myth, and on an on...

The latest NARAL anti-Robets ad, however, makes a refreshingly truthful statment:
"America can't afford a justice whose ideology leads him to excuse violence against other Americans."

If abortion isn't violence I don't know what is and it seems to me that every single justice on the Supreme Court who has upheld "abortion rights" is guilty of holding an ideology that excuses violence against other Americans. We certainly can't affort any more justices like that.
