Daily Beast columnist admits pro-life heart change after videos

Navarrette writes: As I've only realized lately, to be a man, and to declare yourself pro-choice, is to proclaim your neutrality. And, as I've only recently been willing to admit, even to myself, that's another name for "wimping out." ...At least that's how my wife sees it. "You can't stand on the sidelines...you need to use your voice to protect them. That's what a man does. He protects children--his own children, and other children. That's what it means to be a man."

August 10, 1821: Missouri granted statehood.

Missouri granted statehood on this date in 1821

Today marks the anniversary of the United States granting statehood to Missouri. This came about because of the Congressional "Missouri Compromise of 1820," that also led to the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, the Dred Scott decision of 1857, and ultimately, the Civil War. Published August 10, 2015

Happy Birthday to Garrison Keillor

Garrison Keillor is the creator of the fictional town of Lake Wobegon--"Where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." Published August 7, 2015

Dan Price and the cost of collectivism

Dan Price's wage experiment raises this crucial question: "Is equal pay for unequal work really fair?" Price failed either to consider this question or to see how his decision would trade one inequality for another. Unintended consequences come in various forms, but sadly enough in this case, these results were completely avoidable. Published August 6, 2015

The sinking of U.S.S. Indianapolis, its role in Hiroshima

Because of the top-secret nature of the ship's mission and some miscues by the U.S. Navy, the men were not discovered for 3 1/2 days. By that time, only 321 men were rescued. The remainder had succumbed to their initial wounds from the torpedoes, hypothermia, dehydration and sharks. Published August 6, 2015

The Gospel and our response to Planned Parenthood

There was no way to help them survive when they were so premature. Their eyes were still fused shut at this gestation, but they had perfect little faces, noses, lips, and fingers. I cloaked my feelings under professionalism and pulled myself together in order to be compassionate to this new mother who just lost twin boys. But it was a tough night, and the image of their tiny, bruised but perfect bodies remains etched in my memory. We were all sad that night: the expecting mother, the nurses, and me.

Hillary and Cecile: Co-laborers in the field

But one thing that hasn't changed is the centrality of Cecile Richards in the drumbeat of defense of abortion on demand. And in particular, the use of scare tactics is a consistency with Richard. Published July 30, 2015

W. SCOTT LAMB: Theodore Roosevelt's famous quote about college

If your recent high school graduate desperately wants to do something other than head directly into college, challenge them to "take up and read" (in the words of St. Augustine) and spend the next year reading the Bible several times from cover to cover. Don't take it from me though. That comes from a former POTUS! Published July 28, 2015

How Washington Shaped Chuck Colson

"How now shall we live?" "By embracing God's truth, understanding the physical and moral order he has created, lovingly contending for that truth with our neighbors, then having the courage to live it out in every walk of life. Boldly and, yes, joyously." Published July 28, 2015

Screen capture from the third video released by the Center for Medical Progress, showing Planned Parenthood's involvement in the selling of fetal tissue.

Third Planned Parenthood video released

This video contains material shot from within an abortion clinic. As such, it shows in much more graphic detail the reality of what it means to harvest material from aborted babies. The glass of wine and salad are gone, and the brutal nature of the business is on full display. The content of the video is disturbing. Published July 28, 2015

Mike Huckabee and the 'door of the oven'

Is it possible to make cavalier comparisons to Adolf Hitler and Auschwitz? Yes, of course. Did Mike Huckabee do so last weekend? No, I don't believe he did. Published July 27, 2015

Douglas Wilson defends sting video operations

The point of such deception is to subsequently tell everyone what you had done. The point is to reveal, not to hide. The hiding is merely a preamble to a great unveiling of the truth -- in this case, the truth that Planned Parenthood has far surpassed Mengele in cold-blooded, reptilian ghoulishness.
