- Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life says the MN Senate has rejected a proposed law to require abortion facilities to be licensed and inspected. The safety of women clearly isn’t as important as that of dogs and cats:
“Abortion centers perform invasive, outpatient surgery,” said MCCL Legislative Director Andrea Rau. “It makes no sense that these surgical centers should be excluded from the health and safety standards that apply to other outpatient surgical centers. This bill is necessary for us to ensure that the very unsafe conditions uncovered in other states never happen in Minnesota….
The state licenses tattoo parlors, cosmetology salons and even dog and cat breeders — but not abortion facilities,” Rau added. “It is time for this special exemption for abortion to end so that the state can ensure a degree of basic safety for women.”
- Fletcher Armstrong sings the praises of Ratio Christi, a Christian campus organization at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington. The group recently hosted a Genocide Awareness Project:
It was by far the best campus Christian organization we have ever encountered. They… don’t have time for the “pizza for Jesus” tomfoolery that wastes so much time in youth ministry today. Young Christians are very weak because nobody is preparing them to take a stand. But Ratio Christi is different; their unofficial motto seems to be, “We’re trying to pick a fight!” And they are good at it!”
- Big Blue Wave lauds the courage of pro-lifers demonstrating in China:
For about 10 minutes on Saturday, young men and women stood in front of major hospitals in Chengdu, China, holding up red pro-life banners and graphic photos of abortion. After snapping a few photos and capturing the attention of a few passersby, the groups quickly left to keep ahead of local police officers who likely would have arrested them.
Their goal wasn’t to hold the protest but to start a conversation on social media with photos of their activism. The signs read “Unborn children are children too,” “Men don’t take responsibility, so women abort,” “If unborn children aren’t human, then what is a human?” Other signs depicted the abortion process and images of aborted babies next to the words, “Is this your ‘pain-free’ abortion?” referring to a commonly advertised promise from Chinese hospitals and abortion centers.
- Clinic Quotes features a statement from Dr. Patti Giebink, a board-certified OB/GYN and former abortionist, reinforcing the humanity of the preborn child:
And so you see the necessity of actually lining up the body parts, and making sure that there’s two hands, two feet, the head, the torso, because if I’m missing body parts, then I have to go back and repeat the procedure. And that didn’t happen very often; it was a very rare instance when I had to go back to retrieve more body parts.
- Culture Campaign posts about the growing sentiment that animals deserve the same protection as humans – when not even all humans are given equal protection. Why is it that so many animal rights activists tend to be pro-abortion?
A new public opinion poll shows that 94% of Americans believe that humans have a responsibility to consider animals worthy of protection from harm, while one-third of respondents said that “animals deserve the exact same right as people” — an increase over seven years ago.
- Kansans for Life says George Tiller’s former rubber-stamper abortionist Kris Neuhaus is looking for both pity and money, as she is finding it difficult to secure employment, despite her Master’s in Public Health from the University of Kansas:
In a radio interview Thursday, she elaborated that she has lost her research job “without explanation” and has initiated a second online “fund-me” campaign to raise $100,000….
Neuhaus touts herself as a martyr who lost her medical license unjustly in the pro-life administration of Gov. Sam Brownback due to her “affiliation with Dr. Tiller.”
In actuality, Neuhaus was charged in 2009 — during the administration of pro-abortion Gov. Kathleen Sebelius – with violating record-keeping regulations and violating the standard of care for 11 teens obtaining late-term abortions in 2003 at Tiller’s Wichita clinic….
In yesterday’s radio interview she said she is seeking public funding to help her afford the filing fees required to apply for medical licenses in other states. (Watchout, America!)
Eighteen months ago, her online campaign raised $63,000 – ostensibly to be used to save her home and pay her legal fees to the Board, at that time billed as $93,000. She has paid nothing to the Board and is protesting the reassessed costs of $31,000 she now owes.
Her husband is running another donation site to repay attorneys for their pro bono work on her behalf.
