“Welcome” to Colleen, a graduate student interning for Students for Life who director Kristan Hawkins is graciously “lending” me a couple of hours a day. Colleen will compose (Prolifer)ations for the summer. JivinJ will still also contribute his valuable posts, but we just need to think of a new name. Suggestions welcome!
On the pro-life blogs…

  • Andrew Smith of the Catholic Pro-Life Committee reports wonderful news: Another late-term Dallas abortion mill is closing! June 28 was its last day to abort. This indeed, in Bishop Farrell’s words, is “the best news I’ve heard all week.”

  • Gabriel at the Culture Campaign links to a LifeNews.com article on the Defund Planned Parenthood protest last Thursday in Washington, DC. Activists gathered at both the Republican and Democratic National Committee headquarters denouncing PP as a racist organization, arguing it deliberately targets black communities. The Washington Times also has a good article.
  • Dawn Eden of The Dawn Patrol and JivinJ link to articles in the Times of London and the Daily Telegraph about doctors in the UK screening embryos for the breast cancer gene. While one “designer embryo” will be born without the breast cancer gene, six siblings were killed because they carried it. The mother and doctors apparently failed to consider, as Dawn writes:

    Think about the women you know who have suffered from breast cancer. Would the world be a better place if they never had existed?

  • Stanek on Bennett

    ANNOUNCING

    A 527 has been launched and a website is in process to expose Barack Obama and his opposition to the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act, in other words, his support of infanticide.
    lba.gifI am making this public now since many Bill Bennett listeners are checking out this blog after his having publicized it this morning.
    If you would like to donate to our 527 now, please make checks out to BornAliveTruth.org and mail them to:

    Born AliveTruth.org
    P. O. Box 285
    Mokena, IL 60448

    BornAliveTruth.org will go live in the coming days, and online donations can be made then.
    Bennett listeners, go here to see photos of Christ Hospital’s Comfort Room. Go here to view Obama’s votes and actions against IL’s Born Alive Act. And to read further information on Barack Obama and Born Alive, go here to view my Obama archives.

    Stanek on Bill Bennett, CNN tomorrow

    announcing.gifThe date and time has changed 3x now, but I think tomorrow between 5-6p EST the CNN segment on Barack Obama and the Born Alive issue is finally going to air. This is what CNN interviewed me for last week.
    Bill Bennett is appearing live on CNN’s The Situation Room tomorrow during that time period and specifically requested that the segment await his ability to rebut and refute however Obama, his people, or CNN downplay Obama’s actions against Born Alive. Recall the exchange between Bennett and Obama supporter Donna Brazile last week in which Brazile contended the topic of gas prices was more important than infanticide.
    Meanwhile, Bill Bennett will interview me on his radio show tomorrow morning at 8:05a EST about same. Find station listings here.

    Weekend question

    weekend question.jpgReported TriCityHerald.com yesterday:

    Planned Parenthood of Central Washington’s [State] Teen Council spread the word about National HIV Testing Day today to about 250 people in Richland’s Howard Amon Park, though the peer education group had to switch locations.
    The teens had originally planned to distribute information at Richland’s Wal-Mart about free HIV testing that will be at the Kennewick Planned Parenthood clinic Tuesday.
    But after threats of a protest by a grass-roots Catholic anti-abortion organization, the American Life League, Wal-Mart requested Thursday that the PP-affiliated council not distribute information at the store….

    CNN: Stanek on Obama

    situation room.jpgCarol Costello of CNN contacted me this morning to be interviewed on my experience with Barack Obama and IL’s Born Alive Infants Protection Act.
    So I just got back from taping a segment at the Chicago CNN studio. I was told it would air during The Situation Room, on now. It hasn’t aired yet.
    UPDATE, 5:15p: Just talked to Carol, and she didn’t get all of her interviews done in time, she said, so they postponed the segment until tomorrow between 5-6p EST.
    SECOND UPDATE, 6/27, 5:35p: The segment will again be postponed – until Monday, between 5-6p EST. Bill Bennett was also interviewed for the piece and is scheduled to appear live on The Situation Room Monday. So he asked that the segment be held until then so he can discuss and rebut it after it airs.

    Coulter: Abortion and breast cancer link and oil

    breast cancer oil.jpgBy Ann Coulter, June 25:

    Liberals dismiss studies that show a link between abortion and breast cancer, claiming they are biased because the people promoting the studies are “anti-choice.”
    For the same reason, no one should believe the Democrats’ “energy” policies.
    Democrats couldn’t care less about high gas prices. The consistent policy of the Democratic Party, going back at least to Jimmy Carter, has been to jack up gas prices so we can all start pedaling around on tricycles….
