The Federal Gun Control Scam

The Instapundit tells it like it is:
CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR: Since the Tucson shooting on Jan. 8, federal gun control advocates have made little headway and many states are considering expanding gun rights. Why?
Because people have figured out that gun control is a scam that costs liberty while making crime worse and leaving citizens defenseless. Posted at 10:28 pm by Glenn Reynolds

A Civil Rights Issue

The person who’s most robbed of their civil right is that child in the womb - Rick Santorum from Hannity debate with Sharpton. Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0111/48102.html#ixzz1C3uzQhBu

Here today, gone tomorrow

That was fast! Drudge Report has already replaced the March for Life photo in Column Three. In it's place this article.
The article basically confirms what we already know, abortion is used as birth control: Guttmacher also reports that 93 percent of all abortions occur for “social reasons” such as a mother’s decision that the child is unwanted or “inconvenient.

NBC Washington Photos of March for Life 2011

Here is NBC's photo gallery. They seem to have managed to find the three pro-choice demonstrators at the Supreme Court. Keep clicking through the photos because the wide angle shots of the large crowds are at the end of the gallery.

Fox News March for Life segment

Here's the package as seen on Special Report with Bret Baier. Probably the lengthiest footage of Pro-Lifers marching that we have seen on television outside of EWTN.
Kudos to Fox News. They win the 2011 Better Late Than Never award.
Honorable Mention goes to The Drudge Report for what we think is the first time ever to feature coverage of the March for Life (look for his link in Column Three of the Report). .

The Myth of Counter Demonstrators

From Steven Greydanus who is live-blogging the March for Life 2011:
I think the most mendacious reportage I saw was from CNN.com, which opened with the lede, “Abortion rights supporters and opponents hit the streets of the nation’s capital Friday to mark the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade…” There were tens or hundreds of thousands of pro-life demonstrators and a tiny handful of counter-demonstrators; most people I talked to had no idea there were any counter-demonstrators and certainly hadn’t seen any. But CNN’s two-photo slideshow started with a photo of the few pro-choicers there, and followed up with a single shot of some pro-lifers that gave no indication of the multiple orders of magnitude between the two groups.
This year, it will be even more obvious that we are the event and they are the counter-demonstrators, the footnote. Why? Because the anniversary of Roe v. Wade was on Saturday, but the March has been moved to Monday. Why? Because the March organizers don’t want to hold the event on a weekend when our representatives in DC are all gone. They want us to be as visible as possible. So our organizers moved the March. We chose Monday instead of Saturday or Friday. Whatever pro-choice demonstrators show up today will be there because we decided to march today. If they were their own independent thing, they could have chosen to march Saturday, Friday or whenever. But they aren’t. They’re watching us to see what we do.

January 22: Day of Penance for Violations to the Dignity of the Human Person

In all the dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion, and of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life. The Mass "For Peace and Justice" (no. 22 of the "Masses for Various Needs") should be celebrated with violet vestments as an appropriate liturgical observance for this day. General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 373
