The Cinch Review

Kill her just because she’s a girl? Fine!

More evidence, for those who might need it, that the abortion industry is by its very nature both evil and corrupt.

From Live Action (via Hot Air)

Live Action released undercover footage today showing two National Abortion Federation (NAF) clinics in Arizona agreeing to break state law and perform an illegal sex-selective abortion. Today’s video is the third release in Live Action’s “Gendercide” project, documenting Planned Parenthood and NAF’s support for sex-selective abortion in America.

The video has an intro providing context for the salient issues before the truly damning undercover footage begins.

Official state gun of Arizona

ColtThe state of Utah actually kicked things off a month ago, with a bill to designate the Browning M1911 semiautomatic pistol as that state’s official state gun. Utah would be the first state to have an official firearm. Now, there’s a proposal in neighboring Arizona to name the classic Colt single-action army revolver as the official gun of the Grand Canyon State (thanks to Mike for the tip). I must say that I do like the idea of going for an iconic firearm of the American West like that one. Continue reading Official state gun of Arizona

Giving Alzheimer’s Patients Their Way

There’s a really remarkable story in the New York Times today, titled Giving Alzheimer’s Patients Their Way, Even Chocolate. It demands a complete reading, and will leave you moved and amazed — at least it did me. It follows the work being done at the Beatitudes nursing home in Arizona, where a very different approach from the norm is being followed in the care for Alzheimer’s patients, with dramatic and heartwarming results.

It amounts to an enormous testament to the dignity and value of human life, at all stages, and the tremendous power that comes from giving that dignity and deserved respect to people, especially when hardship seeks to rob them of it.

The Times doesn’t refer to the source of the name for this facility, i.e. Beatitudes. But I don’t mind making the reference at all.

From the Sermon on the Mount (ESV):

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
