My Own Adoption Story...41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortions?

Do 41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortions?

I was adopted at the age of 3 months old. My 15 yr old courageous birth mother gave my up for adoption. My loving adopted parents provided me with everything needed to support a healthy happy life. After 52 years I was miraculously reunited with my birth mother. To Read about this incredible miracle Click Here

"Drudge has this headlined, and Twitter is buzzing over the appalling statistic reported by ABC and CBS stations in New York City over the abortion rate in 2009, as determined by the Big Apple’s Health Department. For the year, New York City reported 214,454 pregnancy outcomes, of which 126.774 were live births and just 407 were spontaneous terminations — miscarriages. However, 87,273 pregnancy outcomes were abortions (induced terminations), which constituted 41% of all pregnancy outcomes:"

Justice: The Soul's Astonishment

Justice: The Soul's Astonishment
By Samuel J. Mikolaski

Can your soul be astonished? More to my point: Can our American souls be astonished?

Here are reflections directed to 2012 presidential candidates, notably those who still retain a values-based outlook on life and wonder how they can be elected or govern if, as Christians, they are accused of imposing their faith on a nation now being defined as "post-Christian."

"Plato's appeal to a reality beyond us is what today's radical class rejects. There is, Plato says, an intelligible world which transcends the world of our perceptions, which can be grasped only by reason -- a world of which our physical world and concepts are imperfect copies. When we awaken to that world, our souls are astonished to be confronted by transcendent universals. This happens by a process of recollection, a memory of things our souls once saw while following God -- i.e., pursuing truth. These universals are not taught, says Plato; they are recollections, deeply embedded instincts which through inner longing invite us to transcend our imperfections and move from the perceptual to the intelligible realm."

"Here Plato hints at the disaster of our modern reliance on what is purely behavioral: if there is not recollection -- reflection on that which is beyond us -- then we define ourselves purely in the terms of motor affective responses, of conditioning and brainwashing. This is where the contemporary radical intellectual class are and want to bring us, along with the assumption that they are at the top of the pyramid, privileged to dictate what is best for all: here is a real brain, so let's follow him."

Be Scientific (Skeptical) about Scientific Research

Clarice's Pieces: Be Scientific (Skeptical) about Scientific Research
By Clarice Feldman

"The horrific manipulation of research data to affect human behavior where the need to do so is unproven. The consequences of such shifts are unfortunate; they are no longer limited to chemical scares, nutritional claims, and green energy and carbon credit promotion. Such manipulation is now demonstrably infecting medical research, making it as unreliable as the hair-on-fire food and climate scares promoted by Fenton and a stable of nitwit movie stars and political snake oil salesmen."

It's sooooooo irritating. And predictable. And typical. And weak.

"Those who support individual rights and free markets are supporting a society based on voluntary association, choice and cooperation among citizens.

Conversely, those who advocate for government-based collectivist "solutions" for every conceivable ill in the world are in fact the ones who call for the use of coercion, and if needed, force to make others comply with their wishes."

Leftists: Have You No Sense of Decency Left?
Richard J. Little

Having seen the effects of violence first hand in my profession, my deepest sympathy goes out to the families of the victims of today's attack in AZ. Please pray for them.

However, I am also saddened to see all the knee-jerk comments in our media and many others who are attempting to use this criminal action for political advantage.

I have one question for you who seek to distort this crime to push your political ideology: Have you people no shame? Have you, at long last, no sense of decency left?  Read More

Giffords shooter shows pattern of psychiatric derangement; no clear political affiliation

Of all the senseless acts of violence we've seen over the years, today's shooting at a Gabrielle Giffords public event in Tucson really strikes home. I spent time in the company of "Gabby" Giffords and met many members of her staff during her first run for Congress. I saw her as a "balanced" representative (a former Republican turned Democrat who still, for example, supported Second Amendment rights) who I thought could bring some new energy into Washington, which seems to perpetually suffer from "Good 'Old Boys" syndrome.

That she has been violently attacked by an individual who is obviously mentally deranged is shocking and extremely disturbing. Almost as disturbing is how the mainstream media has latched onto this story as a way to demonize anyone who believes in the U.S. Constitution. The shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner, is, by any sensible interpretation, mentally deranged. Yes, he mentioned the Constitution among his various ramblings, but he also listed the Communist Manifesto as being among his favorite books. In addition, he released a YouTube video containing unintelligible ramblings of repeated nonsense phrases, including references to the government taking away "grammar," of having a colorful bird on his shoulder, brainwashing and what he called "conscience dreaming."

The utterly false and irresponsible accusation floating around certain circles on the 'net that Loughner was some sort of extreme right winger who targeted a Democrat is extremely irresponsible and hateful.
