pro-lifeblogbuzz3.jpgOn the pro-life blogs….

  • Are those attorney jokes hitting too close to home? Want to make a change, give your life purpose? Americans United for Life has a job listing on its blog for an attorney to direct its Albany, New York, office.
  • Elizabeth Andrew is my kind of pro-life blogger, to the point and clear. Peruse her web page and then check out her blog post from Saturday: (Pro-life) Goal setting 101 .
  • And my friend Sarah doesn’t mince words. At Flashpoint, she describes “ignorant rhetoric” she found on John Edwards’ website showing he “hasn’t a clue about the science of….”
  • Canada’s Big Blue Wave links to a psycho story from Britain. A mother there is threatening a late term abortion because social services is threatening to take her baby when born.
  • Great quote of the day from Dawn Patrol, which begins, “Pharmacists are not medical vending machines….”
  • Calling it a “misfortune,” an Italian hospital has accidentally aborted a healthy twin instead of “malformed” twin. How? Forest Nymph links to the story.

  • Per Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece Alveda, “Abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” Read more of her recent comments on The Truth About Margaret Sanger, from which photo on left comes as well.
  • Generations for Life has more photos from the Aurora Planned Parenthood protest and an absurd quote from Steve Trombley, president of Chicago Planned Parenthood, noticeably absent Sunday, leaving the defense of his mill up to the Socialist Workers Party people.
  • Argh, those dirty rats. The blatant exaggerations – no, lies – they tell to promote human embryo experimentation. Jivin Jehoshaphat links this headline, “Embryonic Stem Cells Repair Human Heart,” to the actual story.
  • Annie at Prolifeblogs adds to that story by reminding us which stem cells really did begin repairing human hearts – 4 years ago.
  • Annie also links to a website conducting a study being conducted on the pain after abortion. If you are post-abortive, you can participate.
  • MInTheGap doesn’t believe Jessica Biel.
  • Can’t vouch for this, only report it. NationalProLifeRadio bloggers Chittenden and Gadher are reporting that singers Christina Aguilera and Avril Lavigne may have a personal problem with Amnesty International’s new pro-abortion position.
  • Denny at Vital Signs asks a good question about the sexual revolution: “Where are the winners?” with links to a Breakpoint article.
  • “The one-year anniversary of hell breaking loose”

    plan%20b.jpgOn August 24, 2006, the FDA made the morning-after pill available without a prescription to any adult (read: men, too) over 18.
    In December 2003, on behalf of Concerned Women for America, I testified before an FDA committee against making the MAP available over-the-counter. My focus was on the danger to underage girls.
    To celebrate the one-year anniversary, Christina Page at RH Reality Check wrote:

    [H]ere’s a retrospective of the arguments and forebodings the religious right made to influence the FDA’s decision and mislead the public. Enjoy.

    And wouldn’t you know, one of my quotes made her list. I’m flattered. Here ’tis:

    Coverage of Aurora Planned Parenthood protest

    daily%20herald.jpgI was pleasantly surprised news organizations covering the Aurora Planned Parenthood protest Saturday approximated our numbers accurately, calling it “huge” even. Good photo in the Daily Herald.
    But there were other signs of bias. Sometimes it is subtle, but it’s usually there.
    Chicago Tribune:

    … Efforts to shutter the clinic continued with an abortion protest Aug. 16 that drew 400 abortion opponents… and a few dozen abortion-rights proponents….

    Why are we “abortion opponents” and they “abortion-rights proponents”? The word “rights” codifies their position….

    Two federal lawsuits filed against City of Aurora

    signsall1.jpgThe pro-life protest against Planned Parenthood Aurora was scheduled for Saturday, August 25, at 9:00a.
    But to ensure that constitutional freedom, Pro-Life Action League had to file a federal lawsuit against the City of Aurora and only got an emergency hearing Friday at 4:00p.
    I spoke with PLAL’s attorney, Tom Brejcha of Chicago’s Thomas More Law Center, this morning.
    Tom said they filed the lawsuit against Aurora ordinances that are clearly unconstitutional and subjectively enforced. There are two contentions….

    Gag me

    obama.jpgThe headline of this August 26 CNN story triggered the first gag: “Obama invokes Bible in NOLA.” Then came the article:

    “Getting ready to talk to you today, I recall what Jesus said at the end of the Sermon on the Mount,” Obama said at New Orleans’ First Emmanuel Baptist Church. “He said, whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock.”

    “The rains descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. But it did not fall, because it was founded on the rock,” he continued….

    Did Planned Parenthood commit fraud against Aurora, or are officials in on it?

    Backdrop….
    From the Chicago Tribune, July 27, 2007:

    Neighbors who drive by the bustling construction site in Aurora think they are seeing the completion of the “Gemini Health Center,” just as the sign says….
    But in a few weeks the sign will be changed to reflect the true owners of the building: Planned Parenthood….
    “Frankly, I’m surprised we were able to keep it a secret for so long,” said Steve Trombley, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area…. “We didn’t want anything to interfere with the opening….”
    That the clinic was kept hush-hush for so long was no accident. Planned Parenthood adopted the strategy after a 2004 boycott by contractors stalled work for two months on a clinic in Austin, Texas….

    From the Aurora Beacon News, July 29, 2007:

    Aurora’s Planning and Development Committee approved the final plan for the medical complex on Nov. 16, 2006…. The owner was listed as Gemini Office Development LLC, a subsidiary of Planned Parenthood….

    It’s one thing to play cards close to the vest; it’s another to intentionally conceal information in legal documents and in legal city hearings.
    On City of Aurora permit applications, Gemini never stated it was part of PP. On each of its construction applications dated March 23, 2006, July 27, 2006, November 22, 2006, and December 4, 2006, it listed “Gemini Office Development” as owner and “Gemini Office Development” as tenant.
    Then on its March 22, 2007, application for signage, Gemini stated the tenant was “UNKNOWN AT THIS TIME,” which was clearly untrue:
