Untermenschen

Reader Joe P. drew my attention to this photo taken in April 1945 of Jewish children and a baby in a mass grave at Nordhausen, Germany (courtesy of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum). Joe compared that Holocaust to our modernday Holocaust of babies, writing that the Nazis called Jewish people “untermenschen,” translated “subhumans.” Interestingly, when […]

See the rooster crow…

Rep. Mike Castle (D-DE), who sponsored the embryonic stem cell bill in the House, bragged at a press conference Wednesday he knew precisely how members were going to vote beforehand. Except he didn’t. Hard lobbying by pro-life groups peeled away some of his votes at the last minute. HR 810 still passed, but it didn’t […]

Hillary & Howard lie about Bush abortion stats

John Cusey of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus writes today: Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean continue to promote the myth that the number of abortions has increased since President Bush was elected. Howard Dean said last weekend on Meet the Press, “You know that abortions have gone up 25% since George Bush was President?”, and yesterday […]

This week’s WorldNetDaily.com column: “The worms turned”

My WND.com column today is about the Gang of 14 judicial nominee compromisers – 10 pro-aborts and four pro-lifers – and why they did what they did. Read “The worms turned” exclusively on WorldNetDaily.com.

Mother covers incest by getting daughter abortion

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that the alleged rape of a 17-year-old by her stepfather was covered up by the girl’s mother, who took the girl for an abortion so authorities couldn’t perform a paternity test on the baby. Abortion is a sexual perpetrator’s best friend….

Pro-aborts make startling discoveries…. after abortion

Former Ms. Magazine editor Jennifer Baumgardner writes an enlightening piece in today’s fairfieldweekly.com admitting that young women consider the mainstream abortion movement haggard (“stale”) and out-of-touch (“blank faces” when confronted about “the lack of emotional resources” for post-abortive women). Baumgardner tells of the “innovations” pro-aborts have created to connect with women, such as establishing a […]

At Carafem, staff members plan to greet clients with warm teas, comfortable robes and a matter-of-fact attitude.

“We don’t want to talk in hushed tones,” said Carafem president Christopher Purdy. “We use the A-word.”…

Because Carafem will offer only the abortion pill, not vacuum aspiration or other surgical procedures, prospective clients must be no more than 10 weeks pregnant….

After receiving counseling and some basic tests, Carafem clients will take an initial pill at the clinic. Purdy’s team expects to get them in and out quickly, within about 60 minutes. They will be sent home with a second set of pills to take the next day. The second dose induces the abortion, which resembles a miscarriage, typically within six hours.

By offering only pharmaceutical abortions, Purdy says, he can avoid purchasing expensive surgical equipment and keep prices low for clients. The average pharmaceutical abortion cost about $500 in the United States in 2011, Guttmacher figures show; Purdy plans to charge around $400.

Another striking aspect of the project is the design: The clinic will have wood floors and a natural wood tone on the walls that recalls high-end salons such as Aveda. Appointments, offered evenings and weekends, can be booked online or via a 24-hour hotline.

“It was important for us to try to present an upgraded, almost spa-like feel,” said Melissa S. Grant, vice president of health services for the clinic.

If the project is successful, Purdy says, he hopes to expand his model to other states.

“It’s fresh, it’s modern, it’s clean, it’s caring,” he said. “That’s the brand we’re trying to create.”
