- At Live Action News, Lauren Enriquez gives an update on the courageous teacher who took a stand against Planned Parenthood’s indoctrination of his students and was fired for it. He has filed a wrongful termination suit:
Planned Parenthood persisted in bribing his students with cash and gifts to sign up for the government-funded “Teen Outreach Program” even after [Bill] Diss asked them to leave. And the clearly-biased school administration sided with Planned Parenthood, subjecting Diss to scrutiny and discrimination for his belief that Planned Parenthood’s involvement in his math class was not in the best interest of his students’ well-being.
- After Abortion quotes an article in which a UK psychotherapist says she has witnessed ill effects in post-abortive women, despite studies concluding that abortion does not generally affect them:
Over the years, I’ve noticed that a large proportion of women who come for therapy have terminated a pregnancy. As they begin to talk about the abortion, they become very emotional and express feelings of great sorrow and confusion.
Some of these women are astonished that having a termination has affected them so badly, despite believing they were right to halt the pregnancy.

- Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life discusses the strong pro-abortion record of state Gov. Mark Dayton, who is running for re-election. He has vetoed several pro-life bills passed by the Legislature and thinks taxpayers need to pay for abortions:
The Legislature passed a bill to stop the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions. Dayton vetoed the bill.
Taxpayers will pay about $3.5 million for 14,000 abortions during Dayton’s four years as governor. If a 2009 estimate from the Guttmacher Institute (a staunch advocate of unlimited abortion) is applied to the public funding numbers in Minnesota, about 3,500 fewer Minnesota women would have had abortions over Dayton’s tenure if the state did not pay for abortions.
The Legislature passed bans on human cloning and the taxpayer funding of human cloning, but Dayton vetoed both.
- Clinic Quotes highlights a statement made by a pro-choice nun who supports the idea that the Virgin Mary was also pro-choice:
I was reminded of being with men and women from the Unitarian faith tradition last year as they celebrated Mary who by her assent, they believed, was one of the first women in the New Testament to express Choice.
- American Life League’s Judie Brown encourages us to be persistent and not grow weary in fighting for the rights of the unborn:
Human existence and its indisputable integrity are not negotiable, though in our day and age many would disagree. We hear words like “freedom of choice” and “constitutional right” being applied to life and death questions. Many of us often shrink from debating the falsehoods integral to these phrases for fear that we might offend someone or seem intolerant. And sadly, this hesitancy is exactly what the enemy expects.
