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

“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

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…

Is the ACLU Trying to Legalize Child Prostitution?!!

Last month I posted an article that raised some eyebrows—“Abortion is Gay.” Why would I say something so offensive and combative, especially after 20 years of leaving these issues almost entirely compartmentalized? That, of course, is what the article sets out to explain. Read or listen to it for the rationale, but here’s the gist. Homosexuality and abortion are fruit of the same tree. Two sides of the same coin. How? They each reject the most fundamental human equation. Namely, man + woman = baby. Homosexuality—and all its alphabetical compatriots—rejects the first half of the equation. Abortion rejects the second. Separate issues with a common result. The elimination of procreation. 

As expected, my conflation of abortion and homosexuality elicited some pushback. I lose moral credibility, it was asserted, when I suggest there’s anything wrong with being gay. I should stick to the issue of abortion. But then someone pointed out that though “our side” sees these as separate issues,…

Abortion is Gay

Aug 09, 2023 / By: Michael Spielman

It’s strange what we remember from childhood. Like going to Uncle Tom’s Toys, seeing a less-than-stellar plaything for sale, and derisively declaring, “That’s gay.” I suppose it was my mom’s response that turned this otherwise mundane event into a memory. Taken aback by my comment, she asked what I meant. This was before I had any real knowledge of homosexuality, but I did know that in the vernacular, “gay” meant lame, or stupid. It was an insult. And so I casually applied it to a toy that was—well—lame. I don’t remember my mom’s exact response or even the toy in question, but she rightly pointed out the impolitic of my assertion. That, after all, has been the official position of polite society for my whole life. Don’t call something gay; it’s offensive. But if we fast forward four decades—to June of 2021—we find the NFL doing precisely that. They released a video, in fact, brazenly declaring that “Football is Gay”—which strikes…
