by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Robert George discusses Bernard Nathanson’s pro-life conversion at Public Discourse: Fourth, the abortion movement sought to appeal to conservatives and liberals alike by promoting feticide as a way of fighting poverty.

Obsession: Ignoring real crimes to crucify Kline; Tiller could’ve given a hoot about privacy

UPDATE 3/1, 3:40a: Here is LifeSiteNews.com’s recap of the trial yesterday, including my input. 2/28, 2p: I flew to Kansas last night to begin covering Phill Kline’s ethics trial as it enters Week 2.

Planned Parenthood’s mission accomplished

I mean, if you’re a pro-abort type – if you’re pro-choice, if you’re pro-Planned Parenthood – and you learn that the abortion rate in New York City’s 41%, don’t you throw a party? That’s a hell of a success rate! ~Talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh, February 25

Sunday pro-life Scripture 2-27-11

Heavens, raise the roof! Earth, wake the dead! Mountains, send up cheers! God has comforted his people. He has tenderly nursed his beaten-up, beaten-down people. But Zion said, “I don’t get it. God has left me. My Master has forgotten I even exist.” “Can a mother forget the infant at her breast, walk away from […]

Stanek weekend question: Is this not the best pro-life ad you’ve ever seen?

I’ve seen many good pro-life ads, but a new one by American Life League may just be the best ever. Entitled “Planned Parenthood’s Bunnies,” it not only promotes defunding the abortion behemoth, it shows the reality of abortion in an imaginative yet nongraphic way. What do you think?

Google “murder,” get “abortion”

Click to enlarge… Googlebombers turn “Abortion” into second result for “Murder” Someone has spoofed Google into making the Wikipedia entry for “abortion” into the second result in searches for “murder.” However you feel about abortion, this Wikipedia page is pretty clearly not the second-most relevant document regarding murder on the entire English-speaking World Wide Web.

hyde-anniversary-2013-final_smallby Kelli

Abortions are expensive. A first trimester abortion costs an average of $470. A second trimester abortion at 20 weeks costs an average of $1,500.

So what do you do if you can’t afford an abortion and you definitely can’t afford a baby?

If you happen to be one of the 12 million women who depend on Medicaid and other federal insurance programs, you are pretty screwed, thanks to the Hyde Amendment….

In the name of abortion rights, human rights and reproductive justice, it is time to repeal Hyde. Reproductive rights activists often focus on abortion’s legality and physical accessibility — where women can receive abortion care and how far along into a pregnancy the procedure is legal; but the fight for safe and legal abortion means nothing if it isn’t accessible to everyone.

I shouldn’t have to mention that providing coverage for abortion care leads to better economic outcomes for both the women who have abortions and for the institutions that would otherwise have to provide childcare service.

But, for some readers and most politicians, these nuances are what matter most for their public support of repealing Hyde. Sadly, the value of a woman’s life, autonomy and dignity aren’t always enough to influence policy. Often in a political context we see financial outcomes superseding socially just policy. Hyde is neither a socially just policy nor an economically sound one.

I currently have $342 in my savings account. If I didn’t admit that having less than $470 makes me nervous, I would be lying.

Like I said, abortions are expensive. But so is the cost of injustice.

So, happy anniversary, Hyde. Here’s to another year of classism, sexism, and broad-based discrimination lovingly provided by the United States government.

*This article refers to abortion care patients solely as women, but not all people who have abortions identify as women.
