Planned Parenthood unaccountable to Government Accountability Office

gao-seal.jpgFrom a July 30 Washington Times piece by Rita Diller of American Life League:

Where's the money? That's the question on everyone's mind after reading the recently released Government Accountability Office report. The GAO numbers on money paid out to Planned Parenthood between 2002 and 2008 reveal an unaccounted-for $1.3B.

  • NY Times columnist Nicholas Kristof has what I would consider a glowing column about RU-486 abortions in developing countries. There's no mention in the column about complications or risks (including death) to women (except to say they're supposedly no greater than miscarriage) who attempt to abort their children using these drugs. We're told the only "serious downside" is that it can cause birth defects.

    Kristof is almost giddy about women buying cheap abortion drugs and having illegal home abortions after taking the time to interview two abortion advocates, one of whom seems to be gung-ho about using RU-486 for later-term abortions.

  • The FDA has re-approved Geron's Phase I trial using human embryonic stem cells.

  • The editorial board of the Detroit News apparently doesn't care in the least about whether or not abortion is the killing of human beings. In an editorial about the MI governor's race, they claim jobs are the only thing worth talking about or working on:
  • The state has no time for a tug-of-war over abortion....

    If a candidate isn't talking only about jobs, jobs, jobs, then he has no business in this race.

    Stanek mini-vacation

    vacation.jpgUPDATE 8/1, 8a: I wouldn't have planned 2 blog mini-vacations back-to-back, particularly in the midst of a titanic (what it's turned into) software move.

    But meshing everyone's complicated summer scheduling means I had 4 grandsons visit last week for our church's VBS and am taking 3 grandsons (along with my dad, bless his heart) camping today through Tuesday afternoon. Kelli and the mods will again keep the blog afloat, and this time there will be some posting while I'm gone - Jivin J's Life Links, Susie A's (Prolifer)ations, and Laura Loo's Lunch Breaks....

    Couldn't find any political cartoons on our issue this week, but here were my top 5 favorites otherwise, beginning with liberal Joel Pett's hysterical inference that conservative journalists somehow have the bigger megaphone and are overwhelming Obama with propaganda, via GoComics...
