Michael Medved: Over-Heated Gun Rhetoric Works Against Reform


If pro-life conservatives ever claimed that supporters of Planned Parenthood had “blood on their hands”, the mainstream media would howl in protest.

Why, then, do anti-gun activists who make precisely such claims about supporters of the NRA draw widespread acclaim for their courage and idealism?

The connection between abortion and killing is obvious—even if you deny that the procedure is equivalent to murder. But there’s no connection between backing gun-rights and endorsing killing. Disagreement over specific policy proposals doesn’t mean that those on the other side want to consign our children to early death or to obliterate our Constitutional rights.

Republican leaders in Washington have already moved ahead with common sense enhancements in our gun regulations but hysterical, polarizing rhetoric only makes constructive reform less likely.

Albert Mohler: Death And Down Syndrome In Iceland

Billy Graham

CBS News recently reported that the country of Iceland has almost completely eradicated Down syndrome.
What they really mean is that Iceland has almost completely eradicated people with Down syndrome.

The story explains, “Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women—close to 100 percent—who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.”

There are many in Iceland, including some medical ethicists, who are trying to deny that this is really a big moral issue at all.

One medical authority in Iceland said this, “We don’t look at abortion as a murder. We look at it as a thing that we ended . . . And I think that is more right than seeing it as a murder — that’s so black and white. Life isn’t black and white. Life is grey.”

Well, actually this is very black and white. It is life and death. It is just that distinct. Iceland is murdering babies in the womb simply because they are seen as being genetically deficient, insufficiently valuable in order to have a right or privilege to be born.

Albert Mohler: Yet Another Lesson From California

Billy Graham

The Attorney General of California recently announced that he is filing 15 felony counts against the two undercover filmmakers from the Center for Medical Progress who have exposed Planned Parenthood in a series of videos.

David French, writing at National Review, points out that this is a case of selective prosecution. Back in 2014, a group known as Mercy for Animals released an undercover video that showed widespread animal abuse, they claimed, and cruelty at one of the largest duck farms in California. The state responded by investigating the farm. Apparently, in California, the lives of ducks are more important than the lives of unborn human beings.

The reality is that California is undeniably guilty of selective enforcement. It is using a law against these two activists that is not used against others in a similar situation.

For these two journalists and for the larger pro-life movement, at least in the state of California, the trial is only beginning.

Chuck Schumer’s Deception

Billy Graham

The Democratic leader of the United States, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, recently published a highly misleading tweet. In it he said, “#Trumpcare cuts Planned Parenthood Federation of America funds, hurting millions of women who turn there for mammograms, maternity care, cancer screenings & more.”

To its credit, the Washington Post decided to fact check that claim.

The fact check said, “Planned Parenthood does referrals for mammograms, and some affiliates host free mammography mobile vans for low-income and uninsured women. It does not have mammogram machines at its affiliate clinics. The Food and Drug Administration’s list, updated weekly, of certified mammography facilities does not list any (that is not a single) Planned Parenthood clinic.”

What we actually know is no one actually turns to Planned Parenthood for mammograms, they’re not even a certified mammography facility.

The Washington Post deserves credit for pointing out Senator Schumer’s three-Pinocchio tweet.
