Life Links 6/24/09

Recently released tapes show that President Nixon had some exceptions to his position on abortion, including thinking that the abortions of bi-racial children were "necessary." Ugh....
Nixon is heard on a muffled tape recording telling his special counsel that abortion is necessary in some cases — including instances of multiracial pregnancy.

Speaking to Charles Colson after the January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, the president said: "I admit, there are times when abortions are necessary, I know that." He gave "a black and a white" as an example.

"Or rape," Colson offered. "Or rape," Nixon agreed.

Brent Bozell notes the obvious bias in PBS's recent program dealing with the murder of George Tiller.

National Right to Life Committee's Dave Andrusko on Barack Obama's Father's Day comments.
Obama has eloquently written of what he went through when abandoned by his own father, the price that he paid. Without the selfless involvement of his maternal grandparents, the young Barack Obama would never have had the advantages that made it possible for him someday to become President.

But the point of his essay in Parade--made over and over--is that fathers matter, and that they matter most of all when times are tough.

At the risk of stating the obvious, there are fewer more difficult times than when the father of the baby (often, but by no means always, not married to the mother) learns she is carrying their baby.

What's worse - attempting to cover up statutory rape or receiving training and support from conservative organizations? From his Alternet piece on Lila Rose, it appears Bill Berkowitz think the latter is worse. His research is also so flimsy, he appears to think Rose founded the Advocate (a prolife student publication at UCLA) in the last couple of months.
