Federal judge blocks Alabama’s tough abortion law

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — A federal judge on Tuesday blocked Alabama’s near-total abortion ban from taking effect next month, saying the law, part of wave of abortion restrictions by conservative states, is clearly unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson issued an expected preliminary injunction blocking Alabama from enforcing the law that would make performing an abortion […]

Letter to the Editor: The present-day cruelty to children

I need to respond to the letter to the editor in Delaware State News on Saturday, Oct. 19. (“Kindness vs. cruelty-the 2020 decision”) This individual seems to be filled with the hate. He is blaming President Trump for the awakening in our country. After watching the movie, he seems to only want to stir up […]

Letter to the Editor: Population fact

The Delaware State News published a commentary by Robert Frost on July 22 titled “Troubling justification for abortion.” Abortion is troubling I agree. I doubt there are many who wouldn’t agree that abortion is a disturbing thing. But some of Mr. Frost’s data appears skewed and therefore I have to question everything he wrote. For […]

Trump administration pauses enforcement of abortion restriction

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is giving taxpayer-funded family planning clinics more time to comply with its new rule that says they no longer can refer women for abortions. But the clinics reacted warily to the administration’s enforcement pause, and the widening rift could eventually affect basic health services for many low-income women. A notice […]

Commentary: Troubling justification for abortion

It is rather humorous to listen to the liberal members and mass media of our country calling, at one time or another, almost all conservative members to be racists. We should take a close look at a very important problem in our country today and ask just who are the racists. As we all know, […]

Commentary: In defense of Joe Biden’s switcheroo

H. L. Mencken, the famed crusty commentator, said one century ago: “A politician is an animal which can sit on a fence and yet keep both ears on the ground.” I thought of that quip the other day when former Vice President Joe Biden magically declared that he supports federal Medicaid funding for poor women […]

Letter to the Editor: What some babies are saying

Because of you there is no light In my world there is only night You robbed me of all things that would be fun I’ll never be able to crawl walk or even run You didn’t want me, so I had to die There is a lot of things that you didn’t even try Childless […]

Delaware Planned Parenthood keeping eye on abortion debate

DOVER — Abortion rights remain unchanged in Delaware, but hotly contested debates elsewhere continue. As national machinations take place, Delaware’s Planned Parenthood 501(c)(4) nonprofit is casting a wary eye to the future. “At this time Delaware is considered a safe state for abortion so our needs are more to protect the legislation that has already […]

Commentary: More people need to speak up for the unborn

21dsn Pro Life Rally 002 by .

I’m sure every rational human being will agree that all people have been created with a defined role to play and then are born with the ability to either follow their path or change. Everyone is unique and no other person has ever been exactly like them. We regularly see members of the same family […]
