Roe v Wade

The Supreme Court heard arguments this week in a case involving a Mississippi ban on all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. There is more to the abortion debate than the usual topics. Opening the show this week, John highlights the shifting definition of an unborn baby over the years by the pro-abortion crowd. It went from a clump of cells to maybe alive to 'OK, it's a human.' But they also say that while it may be a human, it's still not a person. This gives them the so-called moral justification to perform abortions. It's what the Nazis did – they depersonalized Jews so that they could justify places like Auschwitz.

There is a lot going on around the world so we shift our focus to global geopolitics. Back with us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He and John discuss military aircraft sales in Dubai involving the UAE and Russia, which could indicate Russia's shift away from talks with Iran. Also, Russia is building up their military on the border with Ukraine and the migrant situation at the Belarus-Poland border is heating up. Plus, Covid misinformation is not unique to the U.S. – he shows how other countries are dealing with it.

Finally this week, we dive back into the school boards versus parents issue with Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She examines how shameless school boards and teachers' unions have been in the education arena and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. She offers ways that parents can fight back against educrat tyranny and protect their children.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments today in Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case involving a Mississippi ban on all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. The decision in this case is expected much later in the Court's term. John flies solo on today's podcast, diving into the abortion debate, looking at the worldview implications. He highlights the shifting definition by the pro-abortion crowd of the baby in the womb. Human, alive, clump of cells? Maybe the fetus is a human, they state, but it's not a person. Once that definition is set, you've depersonalized the human and can then justify actions toward them. John also looks at how judicial precedence is being corrupted from the original intent of the law to conjure rights that aren't in the Constitution and deny ones that are.

After several weeks of intense reading and studying, John asked author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com) to be on the program. He joins us this week to discuss the new kind of socialism we're seeing in the West. It has technocracy, public-private partnerships, and a particularly insidious campaign to demonize nationalism and infiltrate the Christian church by undermining its roots. It's all part of their attempt to destroy America and the West.

We then move to Texas and its new state abortion ban. Abortions are down as a result and opponents are frustrated. But could that frustration boomerang back on conservatives? Next up this week is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He looks at the pros and cons of the Texas bill and the precedents it could set. This bill, which seems great for pro-lifers, could be detrimental to other conservative issues and groups in the future.

Finally this week, little is being said about Iran after the Afghanistan debacle, but a new report suggests that Iran could be weeks away from possessing nuclear weapons. Ken Timmerman (iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, rounds out the show this week. Iran's nuclear program is advancing, but their government is in disarray. Unfortunately for us, the Biden administration and our military seem just as chaotic.

Texas Senate Bill 8, the state abortion ban, has taken effect and abortions are down in the state.  Opponents are frustrated, but could that frustration boomerang back on conservatives?  Back with us today is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine.  Could this bill, which is on its surface great for pro-lifers, be detrimental to other conservative issues in the future?  Jacob and John discuss the precedents that could be set, the pros and cons of the bill, and whether it's actually equal representation regardless of what side you're on.  It's a reasoned, fair conversation about Texas's abortion ban and its legal consequences.

With the nomination and possible confirmation of Amy Cony Barrett to the Supreme Court, the topic of abortion and Roe v Wade are very much in the news.  Back with us is fan favorite, historian and former Senior Associate at the Department of Education Dennis Cuddy (www.newswithviews.com).  He examines events leading up to Roe v Wade, the decision itself, and its possible future.  There are questions that can have a variety of answers like when a human being is viable prior to birth.  These questions expose the need to establish a solid defining point before issues should come before a court.
