- Down on the Pharm nominates NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado for the most ridiculous campaign ad this year (although it’s one of the dumbest I’ve ever heard). In their ad, they claim that if Republican Cory Gardner is elected, there will be a condom shortage. You have to hear it to believe it.
- At Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone reflects on voting as a moral obligation, stating that “the obligation to advance the culture of life by one’s vote springs from one’s obligation to the good of the nation, and to the well-being of all the other citizens who live in it.”
- Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life points out how pro-abortion the Dayton-Smith gubernatorial ticket really is (graphic shown left; click to enlarge). One is completely against pregnancy resource centers and the other was the VP of the state’s largest abortion center. Elections matter.
- Big Blue Wave notes that a bill attempting to ban sex-selective abortion will be introduced in the UK Parliament on November 4. This comes on the heels of a study which shows that the law against sex-selective abortion in India has indeed improved female-to-male sex ratios.
- Bound4Life shares an interview with Dr. Brent Boles, an OB-GYN and spokesman for Yes on 1 in Tennessee. Some comments from Dr. Boles:
Even nail salons have to be inspected to meet health standards. A woman who goes and gets a manicure in Tennessee is going to a facility that does more to answer to the state Department of Health than abortion clinics do….
The science on this issue is crystal clear. From the moment of conception, that pre-born person is a unique individual with unique DNA, that never existed before and will never exist again. Barring accidents of nature or illness or the intervention of man, a baby will be born.
Humanity is there from the beginning. A person’s size, level of development or abilities are not what gives them worth. It’s not like you’re another species until the moment you’re born, take your first breath and cry for the first time. You are human from the moment of conception.
- Abstinence Clearinghouse praises Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson for her consistent decision to remain modest while performing on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
- Expose Abortion gives insight into the mentality of those who work in the abortion industry. Quotes former abortion provider Kathy Sparks:
There are two sets of people in these abortion clinics, the ones who have been there for a long time — they’ve just become hardened — and the other set who… stay for three or four months, and they can’t take it anymore and they have to get away.
- The interns at the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (pictured right) share about some of the comments and insults they receive during their pro-life activism. One of the comments that concerned them the most was when even well-meaning people suggested they were too young to be speaking about abortion:
As the middle-aged people come up to me and inform me that I am far too young to be trying to influence society, I can’t help but think of them as young people. Young people who rose up and said that they wanted sex without consequence. They wanted drugs, they loved rock and roll. I can’t help but think of the young people who set out to change the world, and did just that. And now it’s our turn. As the lot often falls on future generations, our generation has been called upon to rise up, to fight, and to correct the mistakes of the last one.
After all, what is more natural than young people talking to other young people about the killing of the youngest people?
I find it interesting how this age group is deemed to young to speak against abortion, but is apparently not too young to have abortions (and without parental consent, of course).
