Discussion on women in the church

I am in the middle of a big project with a deadline. Know that I am reading all your comments and plan to respond to them all, but I won’t be able to get that until tomorrow afternoon. Keep writing. Additionally, I’ve received several emails and will post them tomorrow. I’m glad for this discussion, […]

New Stanek column on WND: “Stained-glass ceiling”

Those who don’t know me may be surprised to learn I believe the Bible frees women to serve in church leadership just as men, provided they are gifted by the Holy Spirit and willing. Those who know me know this is a passion of mine second only to my passion to stop abortion. In fact, […]

Consequences of Santorum loss

I posted all comments received via email regarding my column, “Quit De Wining about the Santorum Spectercle,” on my blog post yesterday. Most were negative, and most swirled around the same general themes. My boiled down response is this: I agree Rick Santorum and the GOP will learn a lesson if Santorum loses, particularly over […]

New Stanek column on WND: “Quit De Wining about the Santorum Spectercle”

A few weeks ago, I sent an e-mail to my list, encouraging Pennsylvania pro-lifers to support Republican Rick Santorum in his rebid for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Bob Casey. Both are pro-life, but because Santorum and the White House supported pro-abortion incumbent Arlen Specter in the 2004 Republican primary against pro-lifer Pat Toomey, pro-lifers […]

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.”
