Pro-life vid of day: The pro-life youth vote

by Hans Johnson

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins discusses family life and liberty issues with two leaders in the pro-life youth movement. LiveAction’s Lila Rose and Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America have both been activists since they were about 15. They see signs that the tide is turning in Life’s favor, spearheaded by the young.  Says Lila Rose:

We can end abortion in our lifetime. Part of that is a political solution, part of that is a prayer solution, and part of that is what we do everyday in our communities through activism and acts of compassion.”

Watch their remarks from 10:18 to 16:35…

Pro-life activists infiltrate Planned Parenthood mega-abortion center under construction

The location of Planned Parenthood’s new mega-abortion clinic in San Antonio, Texas, was kept a closely guarded secret until October 11, when Planned Parenthood of South Texas CEO Jeffrey Hons gave a reporter from San Antonio Express-News a tour of the facility, now in the latter stages of construction.

The existing 22,000 sq ft building, located at 2140 Babcock Road, is being renovated at a projected cost of $6.5 million, up from $5 million just 7 months ago. Love those overruns.

Yesterday, pro-life activists from Created Equal and Love of Truth Ministries were able to enter the two-story building, around which there were no “No Trespassing” signs or fence, to conduct their own inspection, with video camera in hand. Here’s what they saw…

CE’s Mark Harrington, who narrated the video, told me he almost vomited during the walk-through, particularly on the second floor, where all the “killing rooms,” as he called them, are located.

According to Harrington, a Planned Parenthood executive on the premises became visibly agitated when spotting he and his videographer exiting the building. She instructed a construction site manager to shoo the pro-lifers off the property. That’s who you see at the end of the video.

It appeared to Harrington the mega-abortion mill is at least a month from completion.

Pro-lifers are going to make that month difficult. This week they will begin exposing and confronting contractors as well as leafletting the neighborhood. They already began picketing the premises yesterday.

They will also pull as many permits as they can to inspect for irregularities.

Hons bragged to the San Antonio-Express News “an outcome that backers of HB2 probably didn’t envision” was Planned Parenthood’s expansion will enable it to commit late-term abortions. Currently, Planned Parenthood only kills babies in the first trimester.

Hons also credited the new pro-life law with a bump in the number of abortions his affiliate will now commit, “about 2,800… a year – an increase of 1,000 over the number provided two years ago, before HB2.”

In reality, any increase in abortion trade is due to Planned Parenthood’s heavy-handed monopoly of the market in Texas.

Planned Parenthood had to stop committing abortions at its current location at 104 Babcock Road on September 1, because that building did not meet ambulatory surgical center requirements. Until this building is completed, “Planned Parenthood has leased space at a local surgical center to perform abortions,” according to the paper.

  • Fletcher Armstrong has put in a request to City Hall in Asheville, North Carolina, asking them to afford his pro-life group the same right to display a banner on the building as was given to a rainbow flag celebrating the striking down of a statewide ban on gay marriage. While he is still awaiting an official response, he has received some local TV coverage for his request.

Pro-life vid of the day: “Sing a little louder”

by Hans Johnson

sing-a-little-louder-cover-art Few truer words have been written than the oft-paraphrased observation of philosopher George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” A new short film called Sing A Little Louder seeks to remind us of that lesson.

It is based on the pro-life tract of the same name written by activist Penny Lea. She tells the story of an old man who approached her after a speech and related his experiences in a church in Nazi Germany. They heard the train whistles and the screams of terrified Jews, knowing they were being taken to the concentration camp. They decided to “sing a little louder” to drown out the cries of the victims of the Nazi Holocaust.

The implication for today is clear. Will we do the same? Or will we “speak a little louder” in defense of the victims of the abortion holocaust?

Kristan Hawkins: “There is no right to an unsafe abortion”

Kristan_Hawkins_Executive_Director_of_Students_for_Life_of_America_CNA_US_Catholic_News_3_13_12by Kelli

Where are the women’s rights groups, like Planned Parenthood, that supposedly should be outraged that women have to go to subpar abortion facilities for care? Abortion advocates claim to want abortion to be “safe, legal and rare.” If they want it to be safe, why would they oppose a common sense regulation that seeks to protect women from dangerous doctors like Kermit Gosnell?…

The Kermit Gosnell trial was a grim reminder of what happens when political correctness trumps common sense health safety standards for women. There is no right to an unsafe abortion and for abortion advocates to promote a lower standard of care for women just to ensure the sacred cow of abortion remains intact, is morally indefensible.

The fight in Texas is not over yet and there are still many more hurdles to overcome to ensure that the abortion industry adheres to the same standards as any other outpatient facility, but, in the meantime, supposed women’s rights groups and abortion advocates should not get a free pass to cheer the Supreme Court ruling while calling common sense regulations “burdensome” for abortion facilities all in the name of “access.”

What 6-3 Supreme Court ruling on Texas abortion law means

Supreme Court votes 6-3 to block texas abortion clinic regulationsAs most know by now, the U.S. SUPREME COURT ruled by a lopsided 6-3 majority on October 14 that Texas could not enforce that part of its 2013 omnibus pro-life law requiring abortion clinics to meet the same standards as other ambulatory surgical centers, this while the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals makes its decision on the case.

Pro-life daily vid: OH students’ eyes opened to pro-life position

by Kelli

Three Northland High School students recently interacted with a member of Created Equal at one of their outreaches in Ohio, providing them with more of a pro-life education than they bargained for.

One young woman first looked at the photos displayed on the group’s literature and said of abortion, “A girl’s gotta do what they gotta do.” After some respectful conversation, watch what happens:

Pro-choice dilemma: Are we alienating the disabled?

accessibleby Carder

It’s true that, for political reasons, we can’t afford for those on the other side to be the only ones talking about this issue. But I’ll go a step further: If we in the pro-choice movement don’t start paying serious attention to the ways in which our own practices contribute to the dehumanization of people with disabilities, we can’t claim to operate under a reproductive justice framework at all.

~ Lenzi Sheible, a pro-choice advocate who is honestly and truly concerned that people with disabilities will feel alienated by the pro-choice rhetoric, RH Reality Check, October 17

Sunday Word: “Had you listened to my commands, your children’s names would not be cut off”

If only you had listened to my commands! Your peace would be like a river that never runs dry. Your righteousness would be like waves on the sea.

Your descendants would be like sand. Your children would be like its grains. Their names would not be cut off or wiped out in my presence.

~ Isaiah 48:18-19, God’s Word translation

What the Media says »

by Carder

St. Norbert CollegeIt’s so wrong and scandalous. Especially at a Catholic campus…

Because Gloria Steinem is like Margaret Sanger. Or even worse.

She boasted about her own abortion, saying: “it felt positive.”

On another occasion, she said: “There is no organization in this country or the world that is more important than Planned Parenthood.” (NJ.com, Sept. 17, 2011)

And she also said this:

“Approximately one in three women in this country needs an abortion at some time in her life. It should be a part of reproductive rights.” (The Washington Post – Nov. 19, 2013)

So, I’d like to ask you:

How on earth can a woman like Gloria Steinem with such a public pro-abortion record be invited to give a lecture at a Catholic institute, which ought to be a cornerstone in the defense of innocent life?

~ Pro-life activist John Ritchie of TFP Student Action, sounding the alarm that St. Norbert College plans to host radical pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem, October 19
