Stanek weekend Q: Thoughts on pregnancy tests in bars?

Click to enlarge…

Pregnancy 3 3x2

Pro-abortion writer Robin Marty thinks there must be a “better way” to remind sexually active imbibing women of a sobering fact:

A new campaign to offer pregnancy tests in bar restrooms in Alaska has the same “facetious” issue, with a photo implying that drinking alcohol goes straight to the fetus in your belly. While fetal alcohol syndrome campaigns are laudable, and yay for free condoms at the bar to help with unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, surely we have to have a better way to get the message across?

To clarify, the state is offering free pregnancy tests, dispensed when pushing the button at the bottom of the poster. (Next to the poster are obligatory free condoms.)

Why would anyone have a problem with such a campaign advocating responsible drinking of the fetal kind? Could it be that these are not so subtle reminders that women may be drinking for two?

UK pro-choice Left “can accept no opposing view”

by Kelli

timstanley

The failure of this very modest amendment says a lot about the state of abortion politics in Britain.

The Left-wing establishment could not let it pass because it cannot tolerate the concept of any limit on access to abortion whatsoever. It proclaims that it wants abortion to be safe, legal and rare. But it regards abortion as a fundamental human right if not a positive assertion of a woman’s freedom to control her own destiny – and any attempt to constrict a human freedom is, obviously, a betrayal of that freedom in principle.

In trumpeting the right of abortion over any wider concerns about, say, its effects upon society, gender relations or (Heaven forbid) the welfare of the unborn child itself, the establishment Left has made its position as plain and bold as possible.

  • John Smeaton comments on the defeat of a sex-selection abortion ban in the UK. Opponents of the ban were apparently afraid it might “confer personhood on the foetus.”

It’s time to take a look at what our pro-life brothers and sisters were up to across the pond last summer. About this video, SPUC Scotland states:

This roadshow brought together 11 young people from all across the UK, covering 5 cities in 5 days and finishing with a Youth Rally in Glasgow.

HBO’s “Girls” hopes to mainstream abortion

by Carder

Girls HBOWomen’s stories about abortion are slowly, thoughtfully, and carefully coming into the mainstream. And as they do, the word itself – abortion – becomes less stigmatized, more human. This week’s “Girls” was an abrupt and necessary reminder that there is not just one type of abortion experience.

Whether it was too abrupt, casual, or weird is, per every episode of “Girls,” utterly beside the point.

Pro-life vid of the day: Pre-born baby does “inner space walk”

by Hans Johnson

People have known for millennia about that time when a baby reaches the stage of “quickening”.  Eventually he makes his presence known, with moverments ranging from fluttering to swift kicks!

But only with the advent of sonograms in recent decades have we had such a window on this “world within a world” to see just how active we are before birth. Babies begin to yawn, smile and open their eyes weeks before they are born.

In this video we see a “wombnaut” kick off and swing on her umbilical cord.

The “secret shame” of abortion in the church

praying_woman_in_churchby Kelli

Leaders in post-abortion recovery ministry say the church remains reluctant to fully face the impact of abortion within their own congregations.

[Post-abortion counselor Kathy] Rutledge said she once gave her testimony to a group of women at a megachurch in the South and by the end, several women were “practically bawling.” Yet, when Rutledge asked about doing a follow-up, the group’s leader said, “None of my women have had an abortion… and even if they did, they don’t need to be speaking about it.”

Pro-life vid of day: Songwriter pens song for preborn son

by Hans Johnson

Seeing your child’s heartbeat on an ultrasound image is enough to make anyone burst into song. That was right up the alley of singer/songwriter Sam Martin.

According to LifeNews.com, Martin “kept the song secret from his wife, Joy, because he wanted to complete it first; however, one day she walked in on him privately practicing it. He told her, “‘You weren’t supposed to hear that — give me 10 minutes. She left and came back; I played it, and then both of us were just sobbing. Uncontrollably crying.'”

The Martins’ son is due March 19.

That time NARAL held a protest in an empty room

proxy

Apparently NARAL is sponsoring #StopTheBans events across the country today.

In particular, NARAL really doesn’t like the 20-week abortion ban. You know, the one that everyone else does, particularly women.

If indeed a picture tells a thousand words, the one below is classic. It shows NARAL Maryland supporters this morning griping to an empty room….

amniotic-sac2

This was really a moment that will stick in my memory for some time….

It was a moment that really did, even though its a cliché: we caught our breath.

It really felt like a moment of awe.

~ Neonatologist William Binder on his experience helping to deliver a premature baby who remained in his amniotic sac, POP Sugar, February 25
