"There is an enormous amount of poorly defined terminology and fuzzy thinking used in both pro-choice and pro-life writings." (>>)

"Dialogue between pro-life and pro-choice supporters is almost non-existent. Even face-to-face debating is rare. As a result, there are many questions that have never been resolved. Of these, perhaps the most important is the precise timing of the beginning of human personhood. That is, when during pregnancy does a new human being exist with full civil rights — [including the] most important right of all: the right to live?" (>>)

"A culture of life starts with stopping the root causes for abortions." (>>)

"Pardon me, I'm just gonna use your poor kid to teach my rich kid a lesson for a minute. I'll be out of the way in no time — Oh, and I'll leave you some shoes… and a toothbrush." (>>)

"In other words, this isn't an argument between two equally reasonable positions. It's an argument between reason and emotion, between your brain and your gut. Amazon has no intellectually sound arguments against collecting taxes from residents—by all ethical and civic standards, its position is unsound. Instead, Amazon is counting on our emotions prevailing—on loyal, tax-savvy customers like me lashing out at our price-hiking legislators. I worry that there's a good chance Amazon—and people like me—will prevail." (>>)

"So I guess I still care about stuff and people. I mean I knew I did but…well, I guess I kind of wondered if I did anymore. And I do. So that would be a good thing." (>>)

"You can denounce mother culture in anger, place a mark on your forehead – like Cain – and wander the earth defining yourself by what you are not. You can tell the stories of how mother culture let you down and abused you. But the happiness you gain from each telling will lessen until your stories bring you only unhappiness. But still you will tell the stories, because somewhere along the way your pain has become your identity." (>>)

"Because these Americans are here at the direction of our civilian politicians, we are incurring a debt — a lifelong debt to the Americans serving in uniform here, to honor them and assume some public responsibility for them for the rest of their lives as veterans. Part of that responsibility, part of respecting that service, is understanding what exactly it is we are asking them to do here. Not just how much danger we're putting them in, but why we're doing it…" (>>)

"It might seem that in the United States, being pulled over for driving without a seat belt should not end with the government ordering you to take off your clothes and 'lift your genitals.' But there is no guarantee that this is the case — not since the Supreme Court ruled this week that the Constitution does not prohibit the government from strip searching people charged with even minor offenses. The court's 5-4 ruling turns a deeply humiliating procedure — one most Americans would very much like to avoid — into a routine law enforcement tactic." (>>)

"Human sexuality includes more than hormones, organs, and orgasms; it runs through the psychic and spiritual ranges of our lives. We experience our sexuality on the spiritual level as a yearning for another person. We want to reach out and stretch ourselves into the depths of another. We want to bring the other person into the orbit of our deepest selves. We want to probe into the mystery of the other. It is a mystery that tantalizes us and makes us want it to becomes the secret we share together." (>>)
