OK Republican Rep. Kevin Calvey Talks About Setting Himself On Fire Over Abortion

I love when religious extremists lose their minds over abortion, especially when they claim to be “pro-life” while voting against anything that would help a child once they’re born. Oklahoma Republican Kevin Calvey decided to take it one step further by claiming he wanted to set himself on fire over abortion, if only he wasn’t a […]

Repulsive “Pro-Life” Site Tries to Claim Robin Williams’ Suicide May Have Been Linked to Abortion

The tragic death of Robin Williams has been a topic that’s transcended just about every media platform.  Even while listening to my usual sports radio guys here in Dallas, they spoke in great length about the tragedy. But, of course, there are those who are going to try to exploit the public exposure of his […]

10 Ways Conservatives Don’t Act Anything Like Christians

There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t see some conservative going on and on about how the Republican party is the party of “good Christian values” and everyone else (specifically liberals) is waging some kind of war on religion. It’s just ludicrous.  The fact is most liberals couldn’t care less what religion anyone […]

5 Effective Ways to Actually Be Pro-Life

This week, the Supreme Court basically declared harassment of women entering family planning and abortion clinics constitutional. With this kind of legal protection, now we have to rely on the kindness of a crew not known for kindness in the face of abortion. I suggest that we lean abortion foes to be comprehensively pro-life in […]

Dear Conservatives, You’re Not “Pro-Life” And Nobody Is “Pro-Abortion”

Along I-10 through Louisiana, there are a number of billboards paid for by the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) portraying Mary Landrieu as a “pro-abortion” liberal. This ad campaign targets 3 southern Democratic senators up for re-election; Senators Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Mark Pryor (D-AR). Despite the fact that this is […]

My Five Favorite Types of Republican Voter

Being in this business, I’ve had countless debates with many types of Republicans.  Well, I say “many” based on the number of Republicans, not really the different types of Republicans.  Generally, each type says basically the same things.  The sad reality is all I have to do is turn on Fox News and/or listen to […]

Wendy Davis Is More Pro-Life than the Pro-Life Movement

When Wendy Davis – the pro-choice Texas state senator famous for having stood up for women’s reproductive rights in the face of overwhelming animosity from Governor Perry and Texas Republicans (mostly male) – called herself “pro-life,” she ignited a bit of a controversy. While I joked that she should have credited me with the idea of […]

The GOP has turned “Pro-Life” into code for “We Can’t Stand Healthy, Educated Women.”

Even though I long ago parted ways with the Republican party and the religious right, the one thing that bothers me is abortion. No, I’ll never revert back to the protests I walked in every January in Washington on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, but it is something that I wish was safe, legal […]
