Hillyer speaks out on Obama’s anti-life agenda. AIG-itating for socialism. Turning green in Germany. Plus more.
Re: Quin Hillyer’s Monstrously Anti-Life:
Mr. Hillyer, in his unexceptionable essay “Monstrously Anti-Life,” says that the “fetus is a life form” but also claims that, “We do not know, nor will we probably ever know, when a human being becomes ensouled.” Does he not see the inconsistency?
Everyone knows when the fetus becomes ensouled; some of us just pretend that we don’t know. Since the soul is the principle of life, that which differentiates a living organism from insensate matter, that which makes matter LIVING, the soul is present, HAS to be present, in every living thing from the moment of its conception. How else does it move from the microscopic to the discernible?
What better time can be designated as the moment of ensoulment? Five weeks, when the heartbeat of the growing child becomes audible? Just because we can’t hear it before then doesn’t mean the heart isn’t beating. And growing.
Scientists, atheists, and abortionists can deny the
facts all they want. To say we don’t know when the fetus
becomes ensouled is the first step in rationalizing the murder of

Mr. Hillyer mentions some of his past laments regarding: “parental notice laws, and informed consent; utter opposition to making taxpayers finance abortions even if it violates their deepest beliefs….”
Should parents be notified when their minor daughter seeks an abortion? Of course not, says President Obama, that would violate the child’s constitutional rights.
Followup question: Should parents be notified when an abortionist perforates the uterus of their underage daughter?
Answer: Not only are the parents notified, the
surgeon will demand their consent prior to the
Taxpayer-financed abortions? Mr. Hillyer, President Obama is not concerned with the deepest beliefs of you, me or any taxpayer.
How about waiting periods? Of course. For consumer loans and cell phone contracts.
Legal protection for fertilized eggs? Agreed. That is, as long as we’re talking about Loggerhead Sea Turtle eggs.
Waiting periods? Move Hell and Earth and it might pass a legislature, but Federal Judges are standing by to kill anything that gets out of a state capitol.
Abortion coverage in a nationalized health care scheme? You bet
— much cheaper than health care for babies. Of course, when
government runs health care, the waiting period for an abortion
will be about 10 months.

A bitter pill to swallow: every Libertarian, Conservative and principled Republican, and all others who could not hold their noses and pull down the lever for Senator John McCain are equally responsible as the true believers and duped Democrats for electing The One. (As a proud, card-carrying Libertarian, I do include myself responsible for the results of the election.) When voters of principle made their stand by voting for anyone but McCain, it was done with the full awareness that we were in essence conceding victory the Democrats ‘New Messiah.’ We sowed the wind and now we reap the whirlwind.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
