(Proliferations) special: Planned Parenthood Aurora

Today I’d like to draw attention to pro-life blogs that have been covering the Aurora Planned Parenthood scandal….

Three delays

Well, just because it’s the weekend doesn’t mean the news stops. First, Eric Scheidler’s delayed appearance from last week’s pro-life libel suit against Planned Parenthood has been delayed, I hear, because additional plaintiffs are continually being added. Look for that to be filed early next week. Finally, here’s the report of another sort of delay […]

Gabriel’s favorite song

It’s the weekend and time to regroup, right? With that in mind, here is my 7-year-old grandson Gabriel’s current favorite song. His Vacation Bible School version was a lot less rock and roll, but this is the same inspiring tune. I love to hear him sing it in his small, clear voice… “Tell the world […]

Obama weighs in on Planned Parenthood Aurora

Barack Obama, who never saw a reason to abort he didn’t support, has not surprisingly signed a press release PP wrote for him on the Aurora situation. According to the

Clarence Thomas: Confirmation “lynching” was all about abortion

From the “My Grandfather’s Son.” CBS advance story yesterday: In his first television interview, in which he discusses his childhood, his race, his rise to Supreme Court Justice and his job on the nation’s highest court, Clarence Thomas says the real issue at his controversial confirmation hearings 16 years ago was abortion….

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.”
