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.

At Carafem, staff members plan to greet clients with warm teas, comfortable robes and a matter-of-fact attitude.

“We don’t want to talk in hushed tones,” said Carafem president Christopher Purdy. “We use the A-word.”…

Because Carafem will offer only the abortion pill, not vacuum aspiration or other surgical procedures, prospective clients must be no more than 10 weeks pregnant….

After receiving counseling and some basic tests, Carafem clients will take an initial pill at the clinic. Purdy’s team expects to get them in and out quickly, within about 60 minutes. They will be sent home with a second set of pills to take the next day. The second dose induces the abortion, which resembles a miscarriage, typically within six hours.

By offering only pharmaceutical abortions, Purdy says, he can avoid purchasing expensive surgical equipment and keep prices low for clients. The average pharmaceutical abortion cost about $500 in the United States in 2011, Guttmacher figures show; Purdy plans to charge around $400.

Another striking aspect of the project is the design: The clinic will have wood floors and a natural wood tone on the walls that recalls high-end salons such as Aveda. Appointments, offered evenings and weekends, can be booked online or via a 24-hour hotline.

“It was important for us to try to present an upgraded, almost spa-like feel,” said Melissa S. Grant, vice president of health services for the clinic.

If the project is successful, Purdy says, he hopes to expand his model to other states.

“It’s fresh, it’s modern, it’s clean, it’s caring,” he said. “That’s the brand we’re trying to create.”
