Stanek wkend Q: Is San Antonio’s new mega-abortion center the pro-life movement’s fault?

sanantonioIn response to my October 21 post, “Pro-life activists infiltrate Planned Parenthood mega-abortion center under construction,” Abolish Human Abortion has written a “we told you so”:

We are not bragging about this or simply saying we told you so. But the fact of the matter is this, these big state of the art killing centers that Planned Parenthood is building all over the country are the unintentional (yet iniquitous) fruit of the pro-life movement.

“Planned Parenthood of South Texas CEO Jeffrey 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.’”

Guess who was RIGHT all along…AHA!!! (AHA DID envision this…they called it and were discounted, disregarded, ridiculed, and mocked by many in the PLM!) The sad thing is, they still won’t admit the incrementalist / regulation strategy is making the abortion giant PP STRONGER and codifying abortion more deeply into law as “healthcare” and a “safe, legal option” for women. We gotta do SOMETHING!?!?! How’s that working out for ya?” -Julia Saxton Schoch

Mark Harrington of Created Equal responded:

Julie .. and you believe PP? Could it be that the comment was aimed at PLers who have the entire state of Texas’ abortion providers on the run. PP is saying this because that is what they want people to think. Of course, I know I was just there … PP has told other abortion providers that they want to be the only provider in the state. I am surprised that you of all people fell for this. This article in the SA paper is all about PP flexing their muscles against others in the industry and trying to spin the disastrous results of the law to their own advantage.

The fact remains there were 41 abortion clinics throughout the state of Texas in 2013, and now there are eight. Planned Parenthood’s graphic nicely demonstrates the 81% decline…

As an aside, Planned Parenthood CEO Jeffrey Hons stated the abortion giant “started to plan for the new building long before the new regulations,” because Planned Parenthood’s other abortion clinic was almost 40 years old. This clinic will replace that one as well as a feeder clinic, more consolidation, in actuality.

But what are your thoughts? Despite Planned Parenthood’s new mega-abortion clinic, do you view the outcome of Texas’s 2013 omnibus abortion law as a positive regarding the saving of lives, or a negative? Also take the poll…

Pro-life blog buzz 10-23-14

  • At Stand True, Bryan Kemper gives an update about TLC’s censorship of the Duggar family’s pro-life t-shirts, which were created by Stand True:

    Our Stand True missionaries have been working hard all week getting ready for the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity and answering questions and comments coming in from all over the world about TLC censoring the t-shirt. In all reality what TLC did was help to make sure the pro-life message was heard far and wide.

    We asked all of you — the Stand True family — to help us send a message to TLC and you overwhelmed us with your response. We saw thousands of tweets and e-mails going out to TLC along with tens of thousands of signatures on petitions. We know that TLC heard our message loud and clear but we need to keep the pressure on as Josh asked us to do.

Pro-life vid of day: Speaking life to women considering abortion

sidewalkadvocatesby Kelli

Sidewalk Advocates for Life is a new sidewalk counseling organization which meets women on the “front lines” of the abortion issue – at the abortion facilities. Their goal is to train pro-lifers to peacefully reach out to abortion-vulnerable women in their own communities throughout the year, after the 40 Days for Life campaigns have ended.

Lauren Muzyka, executive director of SAFL, writes:

We take a very woman-oriented approach to Sidewalk Advocacy, believing that one cannot save preborn children without also helping their mothers and families.

Even though we just launched April 1, we already have 42 sidewalk counseling locations – 40 in the United States, 1 in Canada and 1 in Romania. And the results in such a short period of time are even more amazing – since we started, we’ve seen 228 babies saved along with 47 “hopefuls” (those who left to “think about it”). Four abortion workers have left and business has plummeted at several locations.

Pro-life stand-off at The Alamo

622x350 (1)

On the heels of showing the reality of abortion last week on a huge, video-streaming JumboTron at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia - where the term “created equal” was penned by our Founding Fathers - pro-life group Created Equal was blocked in San Antonio yesterday from erecting the same display at the Alamo.

This was a clear violation of Created Equal’s constitutional right to free speech – content based discrimination.

At the last minute City officials claimed Created Equal’s JumboTron violated city code regarding digital signs, but the city had previously approved jumbotrons for a Floyd Mayweather boxing event (kudos to ksat for pointing that out to the city) and a Glenn Beck Tea Party rally (starts at 1:26).

Furthermore, Created Equal had followed the letter of the law and city ordinances in preparing to show images of abortion victims at the Alamo. I will detail the chain of events below, but here is video laying out the drama yesterday:

Columnist: Women are not “slaves to their libidos”

mcallisterby Kelli

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

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…

Catholic St. Norbert College to invite pro-abort Gloria Steinem on campus

St. Norbert Collegeby Carder

It’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

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…

  • 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.

2012-02-11-gn-palin-sarah-palin-bristol-1It strikes me as bitterly ironic that the same people who tell us there is a “war on women” have no problem laughing at the recording of my daughter crying as she tells police about being assaulted by a man.

~ Sarah Palin, as quoted by Politico, October 24, on the mainstream media’s mockery of daughter Bristol’s recount to police of being attacked, transcribed here:

So we were in a limo. I walk back up. “Did you push my sister?” And some guy gets up, pushes me down on the grass, drags me across the grass. “You slut, you f—ing c—, you f—ing this.” I get back up, he pushes me down on the grass again. And he pulls me by my f—ing feet. And he’s the one that’s leaving and I have my 5-year-old, they took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f—ing shoes, and I’m f—ing just left here?

Here’s video of CNN Carol Costello’s lead-in to the aforementioned audio. Costello has since offered a written apology but has thus far refused to do so on air.
