The Terribly Practical Benefits of IVF

May 02, 2024 / By: Michael Spielman
Category: Abortion in the News

The arguments for in vitro fertilization are terribly practical. That’s an expression I borrowed from C.S. Lewis. “Terribly practical,” that is. Prescient as Lewis was, I don’t think he ever delved into the ethics of IVF. Actually, I take that back. His 1945 conclusion to the Space Trilogy foresaw a time when human beings would “learn how to reproduce [themselves] without copulation”—and that is precisely what IVF offers. I do not say that in vitro fertilization is a terribly practical procedure (the old way of getting pregnant is far simpler), but the arguments supporting IVF certainly are. And therein lies the difficulty. To be terribly anything—be it clever, funny, or attractive—is to carry at least a hint of something dangerous. “Terribly” is an intensifier that toes the line between the amoral and the immoral, which is the same line toed by IVF.

Earlier this year, the Alabama Supreme Court garnered intense national criticism for ruling that human embryos—even the in-vitro variety—would be recognized as children under the law. As a result, several…

Planned Parenthood or Planned Abortion?

Apr 09, 2024 / By: Michael Spielman

Planned Parenthood is a brilliantly duplicitous name. Because what is the plan for virtually everyone who enters America’s premier abortion destination? The plan, of course, is to avoid parenthood—through birth control or abortion. Usually both. And both are inherently anti-parenthood. Planned Parenthood may bristle at being called “Big Abortion,” but guess whose website comes up when you type in BigAbortion.com? That would be the corporation that destroys parenthood under the banner of Parenthood. Planned Barren-hood would be more appropriate, though I doubt it would sell so well. For the most unscrupulous marketers, it’s never about selling reality.

Margaret Sanger, the woman who founded the organization that became Planned Parenthood, hated the name—but by the time the American Birth Control League was rebranded as such, she no longer had a controlling interest. Following Sanger’s death in 1966, Planned Parenthood—helmed at the time…

Taylor Swift on Motherhood and Abortion

Feb 07, 2024 / By: Michael Spielman
Category: Miscellaneous

Full disclosure. Taylor Swift has been among my Spotify most-played artists for two years running. That’s not an easy admission for a 48-year-old man to make, but I’ve been something of a pop junkie since No Jacket Required—and Taylor Swift has a remarkable knack for crafting tunes that insist on being played again and again. I am not alone, of course. Taylor Swift was Spotify’s most-played artist in 2023 and Time magazine’s Person of the Year. And now, thanks to her well-publicized relationship with the younger Kelce bro (Mr. Pfizer, as Aaron Rodgers calls him), Taylor Swift is in very real jeopardy of overshadowing America’s most spectacular spectacle. All of which makes this a perfect time to piggyback her cultural takeover.

Taylor Swift has now been a next-level star for half her life—and though we still think of her as young, she’s no longer the curly-haired teenager America fell in love with. Swift turns 35 this year, which is not nothing. In fact, it’s almost middle-aged. And biology is undefeated. For women, fertility begins to fall off in their late twenties. By 35, it’s rapidly heading…

Breaking News: Outlawing Abortion Reduces Total Abortions!

Jan 22, 2024 / By: Michael Spielman

For decades Planned Parenthood has claimed that the worst way to reduce abortion is to make it illegal. The best way, according to those wise and noble sages, is by buying more birth control. Of course Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar business that essentially sells two things: birth control and abortion. Some might call that a conflict of interest, but you can totally trust them because, you know, science. Well, it turns out Planned Parenthood’s rhetoric has been less than forthright because—and this may shock you—outlawing abortion does reduce the number of abortions. Dramatically. 

If my estimated abortion total holds, 2022 will mark the largest year-over-year abortion reduction in American history. What could possibly account for this historic decline, after five straight years of steady increase? That’s an easy one. Following the fall of Roe v Wade, on June 24, 2022, abortion bans went into effect in fourteen states. So for half the year,…

Israel’s Antisemitic Abortion Policy

Dec 01, 2023 / By: Michael Spielman

“Do not make yourselves unclean by any of these things, for by all these the nations I am driving out before you have become unclean.” That’s the message the Lord spoke to Moses at the conclusion of Leviticus 18, as Israel was being ushered into the promised land—a land they are still trying desperately to hold and defend. “But you shall keep my statutes and my rules and do none of these abominations, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you, lest the land vomit you out when you make it unclean, as it vomited out the nation that was before you.” 

Isn’t it interesting that the warning to Israel wasn’t that God would banish them if they made the land unclean but that the land itself would retch them out. There’s a harmony, apparently, to the created order such that even “mindless” soil cannot stomach moral rebellion. The secular mind may have no categories for such thinking, but the more you analyze the life trajectory of those who keep God’s statutes and those who don’t, the more you realize they’re not random restrictions on fun. They’re protections…

Fighting Abortion Has Never Been a “Winning” Issue. So What?!

Nov 16, 2023 / By: Michael Spielman
Category: Abortion in the News

I find myself in frequent agreement with Alex Berenson—the former Times reporter who was permanently banned by Twitter for spreading COVID-19 misinformation. Specifically, he made the audacious claim that COVID vaccines do not stop transmission. It was a shocking assertion, but also true. Berenson’s lawsuit against Twitter ended in a settlement, in which his account was reinstated, almost a year later, and Twitter admitted his posts should never have been taken down in the first place. Berenson’s lawsuit against President Biden—for pressuring Twitter to remove his account—is still pending. And though Berenson has no love lost for the commander in chief, he thinks even less of his predecessor. Berenson has called Biden “a terrible president” (“the [worst] since at least Herbert Hoover”), but he calls Donald Trump “a terrible man and a danger to the United States.” 

There’s nothing unusual about an irrational hatred for Donald Trump, but Berenson’s is a unique breed. He…
