  • Akin's idiocy is infectious

    Akin's idiocy is infectious
      Todd Akin's idiocy appears to be infectious. The evil genius of the Missouri congressman's comments is that they lend themselves to such broad interpretations -- and misinterpretations. By now his remarks are familiar, but just in case ... Mr....
  • The crux of abortion debate: Is it murder?

    Obama has the wrong ideas; Romney seems to have no ideas
    Going by the conventional rules of American politics, the Democratic Convention this week was an unmitigated disaster. And, going by the same rules, GOP convention was a disaster, too. So, either the rules of American politics have fundamentally changed,...
  • Abortion debate amicable at Hampdenfest

    Pro-choice and anti-abortion advocates co-existed peaceably at Hampdenfest 2012. But both sides made it clear they were standing firm. Protesting next to the St. Thomas Aquinas Church's Respect Life booth was Minda Thorward, a 36-year-old attorney...

    Why aren't liberal Democrats ever called 'extremists'?
    Don't you find it odd that the word "extremism" seems to apply only to conservative Republicans? Terminology often drives political discourse, and those who control the terms often determine the outcome. Establishment Republicans have too often been...

    Operators of abortion clinics in Maryland will have to apply for licenses and meet strict guidelines under new regulations being adopted by state health officials next month. The regulations, announced by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene on...
