On Sunday the Connecticut Post ran your standard MSM paint-by-numbers article on same-sex “marriage”: 1) Uncritically report stories by same-sex activists who claim to suffer harms which can only be remedied by redefining marriage. 2) Quote Rep. Michael Lawlor (D-East Haven) implying that anyone who disagrees is a bigot. 3) Leave the impression that only “the Roman Catholic […]

Gov. Rell on Friday reiterated her vow to veto same-sex “marriage” legislation: “I said … when I signed the civil union bill that I believed it covered the concerns that had been raised. And I believe that that bill was the appropriate way to go and I still do,” Rell told reporters at a state […]

“Unwed & Unashamed” is the headline of a story appearing on the front page of yesterday’s Life section: “It was hard. Because even in 2007, there’s still a stereotype and stigma attached to it.” But Sindland is among the women who may help wipe out that stigma and redefine the American family. She’s one of […]

I was privileged to attend Wednesday’s Theology on Tap talk by Dawn Eden, author of The Thrill of the Chaste: Finding Fulfillment While Keeping Your Clothes On and the popular Dawn Patrol blog. Even amid an increasing number of young(ish) converts to the Christian faith with remarkable stories to tell, Dawn Eden’s really stands out. Dawn and I are […]

When I mentioned the Courant’s opposition to last year’s Plan B bill, one lefty correspondent, Semant Ick, responded dryly “I’m surprised that the wickedly liberal Courant framed the issue in such a way.” Not to worry, Ick. The Courant has reverted to form: There must be someone inside every hospital, whether secular or religious, who will offer, […]

The expected return of the same-sex “marriage” issue next week is already sparking commentary all across the local blogosphere. Sean at Connecticut Conservative says the renewed push to redefine marriage will backfire on same-sex “marriage” proponents. And a post on the most leftward of local moonbat blogs credits an FIC Action alert with having “declared” the beginning of this […]

A parental notification bill supported by FIC Action and other pro-lifers has been introduced by Rep. John Thompson, a Manchester Democrat. You can read the bill here. It would “require that notice be given to a parent or legal guardian prior to the performance of an abortion on an unemancipated minor.” Watch your in-boxes for information on what […]

A Blog For Life

I’ve just returned from the March for Life in Washington, DC and it’s nearly 3 a.m. as I type this. But before I call it a night I’ll briefly address some of the pro-abortion blogs who linked to us yesterday. Spazeboy writes: And one for the Family Institute of Connecticut folks: I’m not pro-choice because I’m […]

The pro same-sex “marriage” lobby is holding a press conference next week to soften up lawmakers prior to a renewed push to redefine marriage: [Anne] Stanback hopes Rell will meet with gay marriage proponents before issuing an opinion. “If at that point she disagrees, then we’ll accept that,” Stanback said. Ah, but Anne, she already has issued her […]

From the front page of today’s Courant: Even as the Plan B emergency birth control pill was heading toward more widespread availability at pharmacy counters, 40 percent of rape victims who sought care at Connecticut hospitals in the first half of 2006 were not offered the medication or were sent home without the full dose […]
