Jivin J’s Life Links 1-31-11

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Here’s more evidence that greater access to morning-after pills/emergency contraceptive doesn’t work the way pro-choice organizations have been telling us it will. A policy in England to hand out free morning-after pills to teenage girls at pharmacies didn’t lower the pregnancy rate and increased the rate of STDs:They […]

New late-term, half-abortion scheme: Kill babies by lethal injection and nothing more

Revelations about the dangerous and dastardly practices of late-term abortionists, particularly on the East Coast (Brigham, Carhart, Gosnell), continue. Today Operation Rescue exposed yet another new way they are circumventing the system – this time only by killing babies by lethal injection and nothing more. This will force many pro-life obstetricians and hospitals into complicity […]

Quote of the Day 1-31-11

My goal is to shatter the illusion of objectivity far and wide, to affix a metaphorical consumer warning label on liberal news. Nobody should sit down to watch the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, for instance, expecting to receive “objective” information from a radical pro-abortion Upper West Side Manhattan liberal. ~Nicole Coulter, reflecting on […]

Stanek Sunday funnies 1-30-11

The Gosnell live-birth abortion mass murders, in conjunction with the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, provided an opening for several political cartoons on our topic this week. Even liberals like Signe Wilkinson at GoComics.com were incensed… by Glenn McCoy at Townhall.com…

Quote of the Day 1-30-11

A good person obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns everyone who schemes. A person cannot stand firm on a foundation of wickedness, and the roots of righteous people cannot be moved. ~ Proverbs 12:2-3, God’s Word translation

Video: The most shocking 4-minute abortion debate you will ever see

On January 7 I posted a video produced The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, which lasted only a couple hours on YouTube. CBR’s shocking, graphic video juxtaposed a soothing video produced by the Northland Family Planning Centers, a late-term abortion chain of 3 mills in Michigan, with the reality of abortion. CBR’s video got such a […]

I followed my trainer to the lab where products of conception (P.O.C.) were inspected to make sure the doctor removed all the bits that, if left behind, could cause an infection. My trainer made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass baking pan. At 10 weeks and beyond, those appendages are formed and clearly recognizable.

It was all so heavy. The loneliness of those little arms and legs. That girl, so clearly suffering during the procedure. Before my job at the clinic, my stance on abortion had been so black and white. I had been firmly pro-choice for as long as I could remember. Was it possible that working here could change my mind?…

Abortion is fraught with so much negative sentiment, and in a sense, abortion is plucking a life from existence that has yet to have the opportunity to thrive. No one is claiming it’s pleasant. There is nothing black and white about abortion. It’s every shade of gray. But for us pro-choicers, the woman’s life trumps the embryo or fetus. That’s the bottom line. We place value on a woman’s ability to know what is best for her. It simply needs to be a safe and legal option. When I started at the clinic, all I saw was the individual moment of pain, but over the years I began to see a much richer portrait — women coming out the other side, relieved, even if it was simply a relief to have the procedure behind them. They could go back to their lives.

Seeing every side, the whole complicated and profound process, I came out more pro-choice than ever. I started to see it from a purely biological standpoint. We were removing an unwanted growth to preserve the woman’s chosen course.
