Seen today: mothers on a parenting page are panicking about heartbeat bills and saying, “If this passes in my state, I’m going to offer birth control to my teenage daughter.” So you want to give your daughter birth control, but only if you think she might get pregnant and not be able to get rid […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of Hillary Clinton trying to damage efforts to confirm Brett Kavanaugh by spreading a birth control lie that was thoroughly debunked days ago – even by liberals.  They also recoil as an angry anti-Trump voter tries to stab a Republican congressional candidate in California and the mainstream media largely ignore the incident.  And they blast MSNBC host Joe Scarborough for arguing, on 9/11, that President Trump is damaging the United States far more than any terrorist ever has or could.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Politifact for not trying to explain away the birth control smear Sen. Kamala Harris aimed at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and giving Harris “four Pinocchios.”  They also cringe as a new batch of polls show President Trump’s approval taking a hit in recent weeks, because that may mean bad news in November for Republicans in competitive races.  And they pause to remember the anguish of the terrorist attacks that happened on this date in 2001 and the resolve we still need to confront today’s threats.

Pope Paul VI, Sexual Harassment, and the Pill: Maybe We Should Have Listened

 

Really want to rile things up at this year’s Christmas party? Bring up Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae. That’s the one in which Paul VI shot down the hope that sex was nothing more than a whole lot of fun. He said no to artificial contraception. So be warned. By the time the discussion is over the guests at the holiday bash may want to kill you.

Humanae Vitae is the ultimate offense against the sexual revolution. The Pope declared (can you believe this guy?) that artificial contraception is an offense against God and the laws of nature; that the use of the pill is intrinsically evil, and the result of such means will be the utter collapse of virtually all moral standards.

What a kook.

The article then says Gov. McMaster says the children will have to pay for their own birth control and draws the link that not paying for is […]

“It’s strange how even the most ardent environmentalists suddenly go silent when confronted with evidence of how birth-control pills harm aquatic ecosystems. Instead of angry calls for the regulation of a pollutant that is causing a ‘silent spring’ of hermaphroditic fish unable to breed, we hear nothing,” said Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research […]
