More Czech action!
Valentine Variety Show

The Czech in action.
DISCO INTERNATIONAL BLOWOUT

My new favorite guy to hate, Kansas State Rep Lance Kinzer, is at it again! No longer is it enough for him to advocate that women be forced to listen to the fetal heartbeat before being “allowed” to have the medical procedure they scheduled.

No, while that sure-to-be-vetoed bill is languishing, he has moved on to newer, shinier attacks on abortion.

Like this one, chronicled in the Wichita Eagle:

TOPEKA – Abortion opponents touted a bill Tuesday that would change how doctors report the reasons for late-term abortions.

“We want to make sure we know the actual medical diagnosis,” Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, the bill’s sponsor, told House Federal and State Affairs Committee.

The proposal also would allow a woman or certain members of her family to file civil lawsuits against an abortion provider they suspected had violated the law. The law would apply to the father if he is married to the woman and to her parents if she is under 18 years old when the suspected violations occurred.

Michael Schuttloffel, executive director of the Kansas Catholic Conference, praised the bill… He also praised a proposed change in the written information that a woman is required to be given at least 24 hours before an abortion is performed.

Under the bill, the [new] written information would have to state that “the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique living human being.”

I got this amazing letter today from John Adolfi of the Lost World Museum. (Yes, I am on their mailing list. They have postcards of the cyclops kitten, Cy!)

Darwin’s Birthday Bashes Mock the American People.

Darwin’s 200th birthday is being celebrated tomorrow on the 12th. Why is it in a country where only 10% of the U.S. population embraces his teachings without question and 56% still believe in the Genesis creation, that we’re having celebrations such as “Evolutionpalooza” in San Francisco and all day readings of The Origin of Species in Wisconsin? The USAToday even admitted it was “part birthday bash, part thumb-in-the-eye to Creationists.”

beulah

This is Beulah. She is one of 10 stray cats who live behind my house. I like to think of her as “my” kitty because I’ve trained her to eat out of my hand and off of a fork. Good Kitty!

Weird, right? I will be part of an on-air discussion about right-to-die and the case of Eluana Englaro in Italy (which I posted about below).

I will be speaking as Mary Powers, sometime between 1 and 2pm EST.

Listen live at World Have Your Say.

Update: Listen to the recorded show here. Look for the one about “Right to Die.” I speak a few times a little after halfway through the show.
