Itâ€™s Womenâ€™s History Month, yet another opportunity for abortion advocates to promote their cause by hijacking the legacy of God-fearing women. Planned Parenthoodâ€”whose use of the #blacklivesmatter hashtag raised more than a few eyebrowsâ€”decided to raise their irony quotient by tweeting a tribute to Sojourner Truth as a â€śformer slave, abolitionist, womenâ€™s rights advocate.â€ť
77-year old comedian, educator and actor Bill Cosby came of age during a particularly nasty time in this country for race relations.Â In the late 1940s and 1950s the regime that controlled the Jim Crow South was baring its lethal fangs in the face of increasing agitation by blacks for legal and social equality.Â Though Cosby was and is widely known for taking a more conciliatory approach to race relations, one wonders if his formative experiences inside the crucible of Americaâ€™s race wars may have produced a seam of resentment that ultimately spilled over into his mistreatment of women.
The election was tight, so the Prime Minister drew the lines clearly so that Israeli voters would have no doubt who he is compared to his left wing principal opponent. Netanyahu said that, under his watch, there would be no Palestinian state. This clarity seemed to open the gap and swept him into office.
As usual, most of the media and most Americans have reacted so emotionally to this incident that no one is having a rational conversation about what happened.Â The coverage by the media and the discussions by Americans have been overly simplistic and lacking of context.
As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider whether to overturn the marriage laws of all the statesâ€”as some activist federal judges have already done in some of the states--conservatives are naturally calling for judicial restraint. We must warn the court against another exercise of â€śraw judicial powerâ€ť like that handed down with its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. That cruel and unjust ruling is viewed as illegitimate by tens of millions of Americans. Young people, especially, are turning against abortion-on-demand. We see this in every pro-life march. And this public outcry is being translated into a bumper crop of pro-life legislation bubbling up in state legislatures.
