Stanek Sunday funny extra: Heartbeat Bill a ticking time bomb?

Nate Beeler at Townhall.com has posted a cartoon opposing Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortions after a baby’s heartbeat is detectable, as early as six weeks, and which passed the House last week.

The bill faces an uphill battle in the Senate, and pro-life Republican Governor John Kasich has expressed hesitation, citing Ohio Right to Life’s opposition based on its conjecture that the legislation “could backfire and result in a federal judge somewhere undoing restrictions on abortion enacted in recent years in Ohio and other states,” according to the Columbus Dispatch.

So what are your thoughts? Vote in the poll after the cartoon.

Why I chose to get arrested at Speaker Boehner’s office

FB_IMG_1427403691349~2

When word came down the night of January 21 that House GOP leaders were reneging on their promise to hold a vote on the 20-week abortion ban the next day – the haunting 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision – [WARNING: vulgarity alert], I was pissed off to the height of pisstivity. Sorry, that’s the most accurate way I can describe it.

A Supreme Court victory for pregnant women

by Carder

young-ups-hearingIn 2014, your AUL team learned about Peggy Young, a pregnant mother who was a driver for UPS. Though other workers received a “lighter duty” accommodation for conditions like sprained ankles, Peggy was denied an accommodation during her pregnancy.

We knew how important it was for us to get behind Peggy – and the women she represents, to ensure that pregnant women are protected from discrimination in the workplace.

You see, if businesses are allowed to penalize – or even fire mothers for being pregnant, the risk of mothers choosing abortion increases.

~ Jeanneane Maxon describing their recent Supreme Court victory in Young v. United Parcel Service, Americans United for Life, March 25

Pro-life video of the day: Roe survivors for life

by Hans Johnson

Texas Alliance for Life made a video with women highlighting the ups and downs of the pro-life movement year by year since Roe v. Wade – represented by a woman who was safely born in that year.

Each expresses the hope that we all have – that “my generation will end abortion.”

Children’s book: Young boy’s aborted sister is a “happy ghost”

Sister-Apple-Sister-Pig-8-by Kelli

The story follows 3-year-old Lee as he and his father discuss his unnamed older sister, whom Lee sees as a ghost sitting by his side as dad and mom read stories to him. The young boy believes his sister is a ghost because “she lived before me, but Mama couldn’t keep her. Mama says she is a ghost.”…

Before the story wraps up with a family craft session to make a superhero costume for Lee, the boy’s uncle joins the conversation about his ghost sister.

When the uncle asks, “Why is your sister a ghost, Lee?”

The boy responds, “Mama had an abortion before she had me,” then reassures his uncle by saying, “Sister is a happy ghost!”

~ Mike Opelka, reporting on Mary Walling Blackburn’s children’s e-book Sister Apple, Sister Pig, The Blaze, March 24

Note: The book’s introductory page reads: “To Little Friends, earthly and unwordly. Masochists, look elsewhere; between these pages you will not find the ‘luxury of grief,’ culpability’s sharp sting or salty guilt.”

Pro-life vid of the day: Human placenta project underway

by Hans Johnson

Most human organs are absolutely vital to our health and well-being. Even those we once considered to be vestigial have turned out to have a use we just didn’t understand before. But there’s one organ that is temporary – here and gone in less than a year.

The National Institutes of Health is funding The Human Placenta Project with $41.5 million to study this essential life-nurturing organ in everyone’s first cradle.

Let’s hope that the more is learned, the more respect there is for the purpose of these miraculous organs. That we don’t lose sight of the “forest” of babies because of these placental “trees”.

What the Media says »

Reversal KitThere is no science to support this. ACOG [American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists] does not support advising women on treatments that are not evidence-based.

These women would be unknowing and unwilling guinea pigs.

~ gynecologist Ilana Addis concerned about the recent pro-life bill passed in Arizona “that would require doctors who perform such abortions to tell their patients that if they reconsidered their abortion after taking their first pill, they should return to the doctor for a procedure that can allegedly “reverse” the abortion”, The Atlantic, March 27
