Pro-life photo of the week: Abortion clinic bricks

Today’s photo of the week is by… me!

I snapped the shot on a whim as I was reading one night last week and was a bit surprised at the interest it garnered on Twitter and Facebook after I posted it on Instagram.

The photo is a side shot my nightstand, on which I have three bricks from three different closed abortion clinics that I use as a pen holder.

The bricks serve as an encouragement as to what we have accomplished, but they also hurt my soul to its core when I meditate on what went on inside the walls they held together.

2014-07-20_0905This week, due in part to connections I’ve been able to establish across the pro-life spectrum, I was able to:

Each of these stories took several hours to several days to investigate and pull together. I was only enabled to do this thanks to the generosity of pro-lifers who freed my time to focus on pro-life journalism.

Stanek weekend question: Is the abortion battle becoming increasingly “corrosive”?

Pro-choice professor Mireille Miller-Young steals pro-life signs showing victims of abortionI have sensed for some time that abortion proponents are becoming increasingly and overtly hostile to pro-life activism.

An immediate example is UCSB Professor Mireille Miller-Young, photo right, who this week pleaded “no contest” to charges that she assaulted a pro-life teenager and stole her sign.

Hollywood studios used abortion to cover up steamy secrets

Myrna Loy abortion old HollywoodThe intricate history of the studio system’s production of stars is filled with manipulation, cover-ups, excised histories, and a gossip press willing to overlook it all as it behooves its own interests…. 

If and when the stars did misbehave, each studio employed “fixers” to cover up the evidence (which included bribing cops, paying off mistresses, and arranging for abortions).

Pro-life blog buzz 7-25-14

  • Saynsumthn’s Blog discusses Alliance Defending Freedom’s newest annual report to Congress “that identifies waste, abuse, and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood, state family planning programs, and other organizations”:

    The report details the 44 known audits or other reviews of Planned Parenthood affiliates’ financial data and practices, as well as 51 known audits of state family planning programs and three known audits of family planning organizations that found overbilling. The audits for fiscal year 2013 found a total of more than $115 million in waste, abuse, and potential fraud in federal and state family planning funding programs, the lion’s share of which goes to Planned Parenthood. Approximately $14.4 billion of federal Medicaid expenditures were improper payments, according to government sources.

    The report also identifies 10 types of waste, abuse, and potential fraud Planned Parenthood affiliates have been found to be committing or have been credibly accused of nationwide.

Pro-life daily vid: Gamer parents charged with neglect of baby

by Kelli

A new HBO documentary examines South Korea’s gaming culture in light of a couple who starved their child due to a gaming addiction. From People.com:

Plenty has been made of South Korea’s fixation with online culture, most visible in the marathon sessions of games like Starcraft.

But a new HBO documentary is focusing on a different aspect of the country’s gaming culture: The death of one couple’s 3-month-old baby from malnutrition in 2009 while they played an online game in six-to-12-hour binges.

The horrible irony of the story? The game they were playing involved caring for a virtual child.

Pro-life activists wreak havoc on New Orleans’ pro-abortion peace

Pro-life activists descend on New Orleans to remind abortion crowd, no justice, no peaceThis week 300 members of the groups Operation Save America and Abolish Human Abortion have descended on New Orleans for OSA’s annual gathering and to remind the pro-abortion world, “No justice, no peace.”

Holding prayer meetings by night and prayer vigils by day, the pro-life/abolitionist activists have been busy – protesting two abortion clinics, a Planned Parenthood construction site, the homes of two abortionists (Mary Gardner and Roshanda Dean), the day care business of an abortion clinic manager (yes, you read that right), a pro-abortion church, and more. I can’t keep up. They also held a wake for an aborted baby.

Pro-choice couple goes around mocking pro-life protests

crystal pepsiThe duo creates homemade signs that have literally nothing to do with abortion, instead the posters are meant to deride the pro-lifers’ mission with senseless signs like “I Like Turtles,” “Jesus Slays” or “Honk if You’re Horny.”

…In one blog post, the pro-choice wife is pictured holding a sign that reads “Bring Back Crystal Pepsi,” as a cluster of pro-lifers stand behind her ostensibly praying. Under the picture, the bloggers posted a snarky comment saying that angering the pro-life protesters was a “Victory.”

Judge blocks Kissimmee Planned Parenthood from committing abortions

Kissimmee Planned Parenthood abortion clinic pro-life protest

Pro-lifers learned by accident this past March what Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando had been trying to keep secret until it was ready to open two months later, that it had purchased a clinic suite in the middle of a large medical complex in Kissimmee, just 20 minutes from Disney World.

Planned Parenthood intended to commit abortions at its new Kissimmee clinic, which it purchased for $1.4 million in 2013, despite the fact that deed restrictions prohibit surgical procedures from being performed without permission from other owners.

Pro-lifers and surrounding business owners quickly took action, planning protests (photo above) and filing a lawsuit.

What the Media says »

birth-control-pills-3Imagine how pious I felt when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services demanded that employers pay for employees’ contraception, and the media clued me in to the fact that I was part of an elite squad. The 2 percent. The Catholic Mom Marine Corps. The Barefoot and Pregnant Dream Team.

Now that everyone is talking about contraceptives, I get lots of chances to out myself as a Catholic freak. Many people are quite amazed to meet a pants-wearing, educated woman who actually favors the contraceptive-free life. I get lots of amusing questions.

And it’s National NFP Awareness Week, so an opportune time to talk about chemical-free contraception.

~ The Federalist writer Rachel L ,who holds a PhD in philosophy, explaining why she doesn’t use contraception, July 25
