  • Wesley J. Smith responds to the recent Washington Post opinion piece opposing the use of the phrase “difficult decision” to describe abortion:

    With this kind of advocacy increasing, it is clear now that pro-abortionists also want Roe v. Wade overturned. Why? Roe permitted limits.In contrast – as I have written – a ruling that protects abortion as necessary to protect sexual equality would permit abortion through the ninth month – if not beyond – with the only regulations permitted being those required for basic sanitation.

    After that, the next step would be to require free abortion, either paid by the state or required as coverage under Obamacare. Pro-abortionists believe that women won’t really be free until they are guaranteed the right to a dead fetus.

Pro-life news brief 8-19-14

  • A judge in Iowa has upheld the ban on telemed/Skype abortions in the state:

    The judge wrote that the medical board has significant authority to regulate such issues. “There is no question that the board has the power to establish standards of practice for the medical profession. Those standards include the authority to adopt and enforce standards regarding the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing practice,” he wrote.

    The system has remained in use while the two sides wrangled in court. The judge’s ruling is set to take effect in 30 days. A Planned Parenthood spokeswoman said her agency would file a legal appeal.

Planned Parenthood official resigns over racist statements

Told female black leader to kick another's ass

390756_284329228286507_1809243706_nAny distrust Women of Color felt toward Planned Parenthood was kept out of the public eye until July 28, when the abortion giant blew any remaining shreds of good will.

It was on that day a story Planned Parenthood shopped to the New York Times was published, within which Planned Parenthood failed to give WOC credit for the concept of “reproductive justice” and submitted names of only white female leaders of the abortion lobby to interview – seven to be exact – but no WOC.

Enter into the fracas Melissa Flourney, pictured right, Louisiana State Director for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast – until August 15, that is, when she was forced to resign.

NARAL defies Planned Parenthood, promotes “pro-choice” terminology

Abortion Rally Pro-choice vs Pro-life on abortionPeople are such lemmings. Now that Planned Parenthood has decided the abortion movement’s most prized obfuscation, “pro-choice,” is uncool, everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.

Suddenly, ‘”[p]ro-choice sounds stark, institutional and impersonal,” proclaimed ad agency exec Shireen Jiwan of Sleuth in the AdWeek post, “How 6 ad women would rebrand pro-choice.”

Womankind’s Sandy Sabean added, “What needs to be made clearer is that what we are against is anti-choice.” Well, that really does clear things up. I’d think the correct phrase would then be “pro-choice,” but what do I know?

Pro-life vid of day: Pro-choicer says pro-lifers are winning

by Kelli

Texas Right to Life recently posted a video on Twitter in which the extreme pro-choice group Stop Patriarchy made some interesting claims about the pro-life movement.

After chanting, “Abortion on demand and without apology; without this basic right, women can’t be free,” a spokesperson for the group says the the “humanity of women is under attack” and the pro-life movement’s “morality is not rooted in the needs of human beings,” yet the PLM is “winning.”

“Right to choose” should be who raises baby, not if s/he lives

IChoseLifeBirthMother-300x336My wish is that women of any age would understand that it is only 9 months out of their life but it is life to someone else! That the right to choose should be a choice of who raises a baby, not whether it lives or dies.

Good morning! President Obama’s persistent response to all the crises of the world by turning to his golf game apparently reached critical mass this week and was the subject of several cartoons on both sides of the political spectrum.

Heartbroken by the events unfolding in #Ferguson. A parent’s right to raise their child in love and safety, and to dream that their child will have every opportunity in the world to grow into a fiercely independent adult is a fundamental issue of reproductive justice. As a feminist, as an organizer, and most of all as a parent, my thoughts are with Lesley McSpadden.

~ Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards on Facebook, August 14, adding this graphic, with the fine print, “Repeal Hyde Art Project,” which seeks to force taxpayer funding of abortions for all pregnant mothers on Medicaid. Click to enlarge:
