From the blogs and elsewhere:

  • The American Papist reports the results of the Red Envelope Project. According to WorldNetDaily, the White House:

    … received a “deluge” of as many as 2.25 million red envelopes symbolizing the empty promise of lives snuffed out in abortion….

  • RealChoice notes that the ND House has passed legislation to provide a pregnant minor with “prenatal care during the first 3 months without getting permission from her parents,” including “one private prenatal…in the 2nd or 3rd trimester of her pregnancy.” The legislation does not allow teens to obtain abortions without parental consent.
    Similar measures had been rejected in the past 4 years. The bill now moves to the Senate.

  • The Catholic Pro-Life Committee notes a Catholic News Agency article highlighting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s acceptance of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

    Admiring a eugenicist and venerating the Virgin Mary all in less than a day – what a busy lady. (I think all the contradictions would keep me occupied!)
    Rep. Chris Smith, a NJ Republican, brought the inconsistencies to light in Congress:

    On the one hand, the miracle of Our Lady of Guadalupe has for 5 centuries brought a message of hope, faith, peace, reconciliation and protection for the weakest, most vulnerable among us. On the other hand, each year… Sanger’s PP kills… 300,000 unborn baby girls and boys in their abortion clinics scattered throughout the US.

  • Forest Nymph mentions a Cincinnati Enquirer article on OH‘s new law requiring abortion clinics to “post signs detailing a patient’s rights and mandat[ing] prison time for assaulting a pregnant woman.” HB280 took effect on Tuesday and signs are already posted.
    This law directly affects the state’s Supreme Court case of a 14-year-old girl whose baby was fathered by her 21-year-old soccer coach. Her parents have “alleged Planned Parenthood failed to obtain their consent for the abortion.” Lawyers of the family are seeking “10 years’ worth of hundreds of minors’ medical records, abuse reports and statistics.”
    Councils for both PP and the 14 year-old Jane Doe have been asked to file written reports of how the new law changes their cases.
