Pro-life vid of the day: Britain breaks record for youngest parents

by LauraLoo

Britain broke a new record for youngest parents – a girl (age 12 years 5 months) and a boy (age 13) from North London.

The new mum and dad, who met when they were 10 and 11 at school, have decided to remain committed to each other as they raise their baby with help from family.

And as for the world record, that is held by Lina Medina from Ticrapo, Peru in 1939. Lina, at just 5 years 7 months, gave birth to son Gerardo. (Who ever heard of a 5 year old having a menstrual cycle??)

Pro-life vid of day: The link between abortion and domestic abuse

by Hans Johnson

Almost 40% of those seeking an abortion report being victims of abuse.  According to one Canadian study, these women are almost three times as likely to be victims as the general female population, and with those abused within the previous year, the rate climbs to almost four times.

Economically elite “oligarchy” behind push for abortion

by Kelli

buffettpritzkersThe American public overall is opposed to abortion on demand; whether they call themselves “pro-life” or “pro-choice,” a majority do not want abortion to be legal except in the “hard cases” (e.g. rape and incest), and of the remainder, most support limits on later-term abortions.

The problem is that low-income Americans lean pro-life while the well-off tend to support abortion.

For instance, in a January 2013 Gallup poll, 58% of those with an annual income of $75,000 or more identified as “pro-choice.” Among those who earned less than $30,000 a year, only 41% identified as “pro-choice” – a whopping 17-point gap.

This leads, unsurprisingly, to abortion groups having a fundraising advantage over right-to-life groups. Abortion groups also enjoy the patronage of billionaires like Warren Buffett [pictured top right] and Susan Pritzker [pictured bottom right with husband Nicholas]. And of course, they command a majority of a particularly elite group of nine.

But I don’t think the oligarchy report (or at least, the media’s reporting on it) captures the full picture….

Abortion levels in the United States are at record lows, pro-abortion think tanks are panicked by our progress at the state level, and just last week, the representatives of the people of Colorado rejected abortion-on-demand legislation.

So don’t let the oligarchy get you down. Wealthy elites are powerful, but they are not omnipotent. By banding together, we can win.

She confessed that she suffered a miscarriage (link includes a photo of her alleged list of sexual conquests). Lindsay didn’t say how far along in the pregnancy she was, nor would she reveal the father. She took a few days off from the show because of the miscarriage.

Lindsay’s story is reported in the first minute of ABC’s early morning TV report.

What I have learned in the last 3 years is what to really expect when having a child with Down Syndrome. Someone once gave me a book about what to expect, I read a few chapters and threw it away. I hated it. Most books and pamphlets are so outdated the material is beyond depressing….

Some people still don’t see the beauty in a child like ours….

I have learned there is beauty in “imperfections”. I don’t believe Ollie is one bit imperfect but in the eyes of many she is. There is great beauty in all her God given pieces. Her crooked pinky fingers, the light spots in her eyes, the way she smiles…. Her tiny little heart beat that doesn’t beat quite as it should but it’s healthy – oh that heart beat is precious. The way she smiles with her whole body – I can truly see her smile from the back of her head she wears it so well!

I have learned that God’s plans are always best and in time they always make sense. I have learned that unanswered prayers are often answered – just not as you have requested. I have learned that having a sibling with Down Syndrome doesn’t limit your other children but makes them better, more compassionate, more understanding, more open hearted, more open to the world in general….

Fear is abolished, God has prevailed! Every day I thank the good Lord for that single extra chromosome that has made all the difference!

~ Annie Reid, discussing what she has learned from her daughter Ollie Faith, who was prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome and is now three years old, The House That Jade Built via NetworkedBlogs.com, April 23
