Spotlighting important information gleaned from other pro-life blogs…

  • Gaining a mention at the American Papist blog, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards was recently quoted in the New York Times accusing Catholic Bishops of “interceding to put their own ideology in the national health care plan” in an “unconscionable power play.” While Richards was quick to shake a finger at the Bishops, she probably neglected to mention her growing bank account, which has accumulated over $300k in assets since 2007.
    As one commentator noted, however, “the vast majority of Americans oppose federal funding of abortion” – so, exactly whose “ideology” is being propagated here?


  • According to ForestNymph, Grammy-Award winner and Christian singer Rebecca St. James (left) will star in Sarah’s Choice, a pro-life film produced by Pure Flix entertainment. The film’s premise “follows a young career woman on the fast track to success in the corporate world when she discovers she’s pregnant outside of marriage.”
    The movie is set to premiere on November 17 and will be available for national retail at that time.

  • Generations for Life recaps the success of the most recent 40 Days for Life campaign. It ended this past Sunday, bearing notable fruits:
    9 abortion clinic employees walked away from the industry – the most notable being Abby Johnson, former director of the Planned Parenthood in Bryan, TX.

    1. Ah, yes, Cecile Richards- the old “this is a religious issue” argument. But she has a point. I brushed the webs off of my Bible today, cracked it open (that characteristic sound of a book that never gets opened, I’m ashamed to confess), and opened right up to this verse:
      “Thou shalt not fund elective procedures, such as plastic surgery or abortion, keep Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill, or wear pasties.”
      The “it’s a religious argument” claim, man…getcha everytime.

    2. As one commentator noted, however, “the vast majority of Americans oppose federal funding of abortion” – so, exactly whose “ideology” is being propagated here?
      Absolutely! It isn’t just pro life people who oppose taxpayers paying for abortions. Even some pro aborts agree with us on that issue.

    3. I see Cecile’s name on the White House guest list several times. If she’s not “interceding to put [her] own ideology in the national health care plan,” what’s she doing there?
      The real “unconscionable power play” here is the House passing a bill with full knowledge that the majority of their constituents oppose it and will be worse off in the long run.

    4. Very funny Vannah!
      Hey, glad to hear you’re crackin’ the Good Book!
      You might want to say a simple prayer and ask God to help you understand His Word and lead you into His Truth. The Gospel of John is a great starting point because it does a great job covering many of life’s major themes. Chapter 15 contains the metaphor of Christ being the True Vine and we’re the branches.
      As you turn your heart to seek the Lord, He will bring messages across your path that seem to speak precisely to your situation, like they are speaking right to you, whether it is on Christian TV, radio, whatever. It’s uncanny.
      His promise is, “Draw near to me, and I will draw near to you.” James 4.7
      I know myself and others will be praying for you that God touches you in a very real way.
      I’m excited for you!

    6. I am so glad the Conference of Catholic Bishops did not take a political poll or use a focus group to decide whether or not to take a stand against abortion in this healthcare takeover bill.
