Anthony Horvath Public Testimony: Principles of self-government, rather than ‘pro-life’ principles, are controlling regarding Planned Parenthood

On September 2nd, 2015, I had the opportunity to give testimony for the Wisconsin state assembly’s committee on health concerning AB 310, a bill that would compel the state of Wisconsin to compete for Title X Federal dollars, which presently go exclusively to Planned Parenthood.  By the time I had my chance to speak, many people had said a lot of the things that I would have wanted to say, so I decided to focus on the ‘secular’ principle of the matter:  tax payers have the right to make demands about how their taxes are administered.  In our republican … continue reading...

Reflections on the ‘Jaffe Memo’ and why ‘Religion’ and ‘Politics’ should Mix- Part 1

[Updated 9/11/2015 with link to original source document]

Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson has set the pro-life blogosphere on fire with her posting of the ‘Jaffe Memo,’ a memorandum written by Frederick S. Jaffe, former vice-president of Planned Parenthood.  Jaffe apparently was in charge of PP’s population control agenda.  The memo was written in 1969.

The memo appears to be legit but I haven’t been able to find its original source.  Read it:

The original has been found and a corrected copy has been created.  Download it:

Apologetics is the Answer to Abortion and Euthanasia and other Life Issues

Not too long ago I posted an essay asserting that ‘apologetics is the answer to everything.’  Even then I had in mind to discuss the relationship between apologetics and life issues such as abortion, euthanasia, eugenics, etc, but fought off the urge to elaborate on it.  Now is my chance.

You know, for most of my life, even during my ‘liberal’ years, I have more or less been pro-life.  This became personal when the doctors asked my wife and I if we wanted to ‘terminate’ our child, diagnosed that morning with spina bifida.  But I have always been … continue reading...

Presentation: Abortion is Just Politics and Pro-Life is Just Religion; and Apologetics

Thursday, Apr. 29th,  at 12:30 p.m. CST, I will be presenting on this topic:

(Round two in progress… 2:23 p.m. CST, direct link)

Just Politics?  Religion and Abortion and Apologetics:  Examining the idea that supporting abortion is merely a political view but opposing it is a religious view and the role of world view in the question.

Summary:  Pro-choicers often frame their argument by casting their position as a civil rights issue and the pro-life position as a religious issue- and people should not impose their religion on others.  Common sense would suggest that as two sides of the … continue reading...
