  • At Reproductive Research Audit, Dr. Jacqueline Harvey dismantles three popular myths about the Hobby Lobby case against the HHS Mandate.
  • Priests for Life calls upon the faithful to stand with them on May 8, the day the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments on their lawsuit against the HHS mandate. If you cannot be at the rally in DC on that day, they invite you to take to social media to express your support:

    The rally and a related social media campaign, #IStandWithPFL, is meant to call attention to the fact that the concerns of the religious not-for-profits have not been addressed by the Obama administration’s so-called “accommodation” to faith-based employers.

  • Reflections of a Paralytic says one Los Angeles gallery has chosen to display “artwork” done by famed assisted suicide enthusiast, the late Dr. Jack Kevorkian, who was reportedly “obsessed with death and human experimentation.” Says the Huffington Post:

    “The Last Paintings By Jack ‘Dr. Death’ Kevorkian” at the Gallerie Sparta is showcasing 11 original oil paintings of the late suicide enthusiast. Many of these paintings depict some aspect of disease and human suffering. One, called “Coma,” [pictured left] depicts an unconscious patient, silhouetted by an ominous pair of skeletal hands, being sucked into a death mask which resembles a CAT scan machine.

    Each Painting comes with a price tag of between $28-45k. All of the proceeds will go to his estate and the West Hollywood gallery where they are being sold. Whatever does not get sold will reportedly be donated to the Smithsonian.

    The exhibition also includes the assisted suicide machine that Kevorkian designed and built…. That’s right. The very same contraption helped inject a series of lethal drugs into over 100 terminal — and some non-terminal — patients. It too is for sale to the highest bidder with a starting price of $25,000.

  • Pro-Life in TN reports that a Good Friday Way of the Cross prayer vigil in front of unregulated abortion facility in Nashville uplifted many, but apparently offended some. One man did not like the cross being displayed, and one woman tried to drown out the peaceful prayer vigil by honking her horn while shouting obscenities. One mother from Kentucky said her children, whom she brought with her, needed to be prepared for the fact that some people are hostile to the Christian witness.
  • Pro-Life Wisconsin reports on several Holy Week pro-life events in the state. In one instance, Bishop Donald Hying led the “first-ever Eucharistic Procession to the doors of the Affiliated Medical Services abortion clinic in Milwaukee“, accompanied by pro-lifers, where they prayed “for the end of abortion in Milwaukee and around the world.”
  • Right to Life of Michigan notes that a study published by human ESCR proponent Robert Lanza claims to have been successful “in creating human clones from two adult men and then killing the clones for their stem cells.”

secular pro life

  • Secular Pro-Life says the popular meme – pictured right – doesn’t hold water if one is truly pro-life. An anonymous blogger writes an honest, thought-provoking post about her pregnancy scare and about pregnancy resource centers:

    I knew that I would always give my hypothetical baby life, but thinking I could be pregnant caused me to think a little about pregnancy, privacy, and pregnancy centers….

    I would never have an abortion, for any reason. Regardless, thinking I was pregnant was emotional enough for me. I knew that if I were not so set in my beliefs, especially since I am a person who seeks the advice of others, I could listened to someone convince me to have an abortion. It is not anti-women to say that women are often talked into their abortions. It is anti-women to take advantage and make that decision for them….

    I turned to a pregnancy center for a pregnancy test. The staffer there was kind, helpful and non-judgmental. I was also promised confidentiality. The test was explained to me, and was free. My partner, who is neither pro-life nor a Christian, felt being at the center went positively.

by Hans Johnson

Almost 40% of those seeking an abortion report being victims of abuse.  According to one Canadian study, these women are almost three times as likely to be victims as the general female population, and with those abused within the previous year, the rate climbs to almost four times.

Archbishop calls Planned Parenthood a modern-day Judas

2014-04-19_0608

We do come here to judge the unconscionable greed behind the doctors, nurses and supporters of Planned Parenthood, who, for 30 pieces of silver, offer a quick fix to such women, rather than helping than helping them find a real solution to their problems.

~ St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt, at the annual Good Friday prayerful protest at Planned Parenthood in St. Paul.

Stanek weekend question: Thoughts on Sebelius as she rides off into the sunset?

Kathleen-SebeliusI was in Ireland when news broke last week that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was resigning, but a reader wrote asking that I give you all an opportunity to talk about her.

Indeed, in the minds of pro-lifers, Kathleen Sebelius is a scandalous, abominable, corrupt abortion protector, going back to her days as governor of Kansas, and perhaps before that.

Now, as overseer of the Obamacare rollout, it seems just that her name will now and forever be tied to failure.

What are your thoughts of Sebelius, one of the highest ranking members of America’s abortion cartel?

What the Media says »

Josie CunninghamI’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it now.

An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead, I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house.

Nothing will get in my way.

~ British model Josie Cunningham announcing why a late-term abortion is necessary in order for her to be cast in the reality TV show Big Brother, UK Mirror, April 20

Big Brother’s response: “Josie is deluded if she thinks this will improve her chances of signing up, which were slim to non-existent to start with,” a source told the newspaper. “How can we work with her — or pay her — if she admits having an abortion to achieve that? It would be a minefield.”
