BREAKING: Pro-lifers announce sit-in at Speaker Boehner’s office to #FreeTheBan

On March 25 it will have been just over TWO MONTHS since Republican House leaders reneged on their promise to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act on January 22, when hundreds of thousands were participating in the March for Life.

If GOP leaders thought we might forget, they were mistaken. More than enough time has passed for them to right their wrong.

Today, I joined pro-life activists Rev. Pat Mahoney and Troy Newman in announcing a peaceful protest and sit-in at Speaker John Boehner’s office on March 25 at 11 a.m.

11047060_10206487690176768_1543167714_n (1)On that day there will be a pro-life social media effort called #FreeTheBan to compel GOP House leaders to pass this measure, which has overwhelming support among the American people across all demographics, as shown in this HuffPo poll.

Republican House leaders were roundly criticized for ineptly pulling the ban, such as in the Washington Post. 

Politico predicted re-election troubles ahead for those who blocked the ban, including Reps. Renee Ellmers, Jackie Walorski, and Charlie Dent. Even bill co-sponsor Marsha Blackburn has been identified as a potential culprit.

All pro-life activists in the Washington, D.C., area are urged to attend this important event. Those who do not wish to risk arrest are encouraged to offer support by their presence and prayers.

Sign up to join the event and show your support at our Facebook event page, where you can also learn more and get questions answered.

Pro-lifers not in the D.C. area are asked to plan to set aside time that day to cause a stir on Facebook and Twitter.

Pro-life vid of day: The pastor’s wife works at an abortion clinic

by Hans Johnson
callie-chatman
Christians have been at the forefront of civil rights movements over the past two centuries, from the abolition of slavery to the present-day drive to abolish abortion. So does it fall on those of a purportedly pro-life church to hold members, and leaders especially, accountable?

A pro-life group filmed Pastor Louis Chatman of the Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, pull up in his Mercedes at the Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic.

He dropped off his wife Callie (pictured above right), a certified medical technician who admitted to the Christian Post that she does work there  one day a week (as a counselor).

I feel that we have all sinned. None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don’t know why, other than that’s the only decision [abortion] that a woman could make. That’s her right to make that decision because that’s her body.

Chatman, whose son Jerome also works there as a security guard, says her husband has no objections. Chatman also tells women about to abort their children that “God is a forgiving God.” As for those who who disapprove of her job: “You know what? The activists need to get their lives together. When they become sin-free then you call me back.”

Columnist La Shawn Barber is not buying her justification, noting that while we are not to judge, we are also to avoid the appearance of evil (much less cooperate with it).

Pro-life vid of the day: Pro-life club banned from college

by Hans Johnson

Students for Life at Ryerson has lost its last appeal to form a pro-life club at Ryerson University in Toronto. An email after the unanimous rejection said the Ryerson Students’ Union “opposes… groups, meetings, or events that promote misogynist views towards woman (sic) and ideologies that promote gender inequity, challenges women’s right (sic) to bodily autonomy, or justifies (sic) sexual assault.”

But Carter Grant, vice-president of SFLR, answers:

Our club stands for human rights for all human beings, including those at the earliest stages of life. We also want to support pregnant students on campus who want alternatives to abortion. If the student union is going to accuse students of serious things like misogyny, they should be prepared to explain the basis for that. We are still waiting for that explanation.

With the help of counsel, it is hoped the university administration will acknowledge that allowing a pro-choice group while excludeing a pro-life one does not comport with the freedom of expression.

Dad warns what not to do when your wife is in labor

labor1by Carder

Your wife is experiencing pain beyond belief and you’re complaining that your back hurts from leaning over her bed to hold her hand? Dumb move, dude (I speak from experience here). This is a sure-fire way to earn the death look of the century and a gnarly scolding after the birth. Keep your discomforts to yourself and offer them up for your wife and baby.

My wife nearly broke my hand and dislocated my arm once during an intense contraction. But I learned to keep my mouth shut and offered up the pain.

NOLA Planned Parenthood’s concrete contractor: “The blood is on pro-life hands”

0_0_0_0_250_139_csupload_56975362_largeIn my post yesterday, “NOLA Planned Parenthood resumes construction; contractor says will walk for payoff,” I wrote that Absolute Concrete Services had not returned my calls requesting comment.

Today, Ronald Backes did.

Ronald is the son of Melvin and Linda Backes, and he clarified that Linda solely owns Absolute Concrete Services (which I said I’d correct), and he works for her. He said his parents are divorced.

Ronald wasn’t present to hear the conversation between his parents and Pastor Shanks, but he denies they made these comments Pastor Shanks attributed to them:

Pro-life blog buzz 3-3-15

pro-lifeby Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

  • Live Action News says the new interactive game “Fusion” (on a website that includes writers like the founding editor of pro-abortion, profane Jezebel) in which players pretend to lead a South Dakota woman through several supposedly real-life scenarios – but they all suggest abortion is the correct answer to the dilemma. Hmm, no agenda there:

    What if the woman does choose to keep the baby?

    If she chooses to have the woman keep the baby, then she either still ends up having the abortion because of a partial placental abruption, or she has the baby and ends up sick, in premature labor, and with mountains of debt.

Pro-life vid of the day: Stolen moments of the aborted

by Hans Johnson

Pro-Life Texas has released the first in a planned series of videos centering on the “what ifs” of all the lives lost through abortion. The producer and writer, curiously enough, were rejected by the crowd-sourcing company Kickstarter just like the filmmakers of the upcoming Kermit Gosnell movie:

Pro-abort docs fret over “standards of care” in RU-486 reversals

Father Pavone poses with young family following news conference in Washington on RU-486 reversal protocolby Kelli

The “reversals” also show that the ingestion of medication abortion drugs is never a sure thing when it comes to terminating a pregnancy. While anti-abortion activists tout the alleged “high complication rates” of the process, what they conveniently leave out is that the most common complication is that the patient remains pregnant, and that the protocol needs to be followed up with D&C or vacuum aspiration abortion in order to end the pregnancy….

NOLA Planned Parenthood resumes construction; contractor says will walk for payoff

0_0_0_0_250_188_csupload_54196699_largeThe New Orleans Advocate reported today construction on the troubled New Orleans Planned Parenthood abortion facility has resumed amidst problems within and without.

The 8,000 square foot mill project stalled almost immediately after its ballyhooed groundbreaking in May 2013.

In the 22 months since, only the foundation has been dug.

The NARAL Men’s Leadership Council was created to encourage pro-choice men to share their stories and show their support for reproductive rights.

We know this isn’t just a women’s issue — this is an issue that affects families and women’s partners and spouses as well.

~ Press release from NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado in which the group appears to contradict the “no uterus, no opinion” and “abortion should be between a woman and her doctor” mantras, as quoted by The Denver Post, March 4

Note: Among the listed hosts of the Men’s Leadership Council is Colorado late-term abortionist Warren Hern.
