- Americans United for Life remarks on the Iowa court win upholding the ban on webcam abortions in the state. The ban was put in place by the Iowa Board of Medicine:
During the litigation, Planned Parenthood admitted that, under its preferred method of chemical abortion, a physician never physically meets with a woman. Moreover, staff members — such as certified medical assistants (CMAs) — conduct physical exams or ultrasounds instead of doctors or other licensed healthcare providers.
- Big Blue Wave caught President Obama’s recent press conference addressing the massacre of innocents. Consider Obama’s statements in light of his support for the nation’s largest abortion chain as well as his defense of partial birth- and live birth abortion, and they are stunning.
- A Culture of Life has some strong words for a new website in New Zealand created not to expose doctors who perform abortions, but to harass medical professionals who express pro-life views:
On Sunday, ALRANZ launched a new website called “My Decision” which aims to intimidate and bully pro-life doctors through naming them and publishing women’s stories about their experiences with “hostile or unhelpful health professionals.”
Through the website ALRANZ wants to take options away from women by publishing the names of these individuals and organisations. By doing this, it is being inferred that they are archaic, putting their own beliefs over and above good medicine, good science. But these pro-life health professionals and crisis pregnancy centres are being honest, not only about their beliefs, but the science and medical evidence which shows that human life begins at the moment of fertilization and that some so-called contraceptives are abortifacient.
- At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal responds to the viral news about noted atheist Richard Dawkins (pictured right) who recently claimed on Twitter that it is “immoral” not to abort a child with Down syndrome:
One can scarce envision a population more given to unconditional love than the Down Syndrome community. Those such as Dawkins, who reject the very idea that there is a God who is love itself, who advocate the slaughter of babies for want of something that approximates normal function, are those most in need of love themselves. There is something in them that was frustrated along the way, perhaps the perception that their love was not welcome in those to whom it should have flowed, and from whom they should have received that love which could have completed what was lacking in them.
- Live Action News and Operation Rescue share the news that today, notorious creator of partial birth abortion Dr. Martin Haskell, will perform his last surgical abortion at his Sharonville, Ohio, clinic.
- Bound4Life posts the testimony of a post-abortive mother, meant to encourage pro-lifers to continue praying and witnessing for life.
- Pro-Life in TN has video of a recent meeting of the Tennessee General Assembly in which it is revealed that the TN Department of Health does not license or regularly inspect abortion clinics – unlike surgical centers. This leads to a “let the buyer beware” situation for women seeking abortions who enter under the false assumption that they have some assurance of safety:
