  • The Missourian has a long article on pro-life groups in the Show Me State.
  • Joe Carter points out Mara Hvistendahl’s obviously inconsistent beliefs about abortion and sex-selection abortion:

    So why does she accept the first form of the argument but not this one? Because that is the outcome she wants. She believes that (A) a woman should have the right to an abort a fetus and that (B) a woman should not have the right to abort a fetus if she knows it is a female. Logic and consistency be damned, the two beliefs must be compatible because she wants them both to be true at the same time.

    It truly is amazing how pro-choicers who are opposed to sex-selection abortion can’t see how the premise of their pro-choice position (women should be allowed to choose for themselves whether they should remain pregnant) is wholly inconsistent with saying women shouldn’t be allowed to abort because they don’t want a female child. I guess “Trust women!” only goes so far.

  • Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri has been granted a license to perform abortions in Kansas:

    Shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday, state health officials notified Planned Parenthood that it would be the only abortion clinic to get a license under controversial new rules that take effect today….

    The state’s two other abortion clinics – Aid for Women in Kansas City, KS, and the Center for Women’s Health in Overland Park – are without licenses and unable to provide abortions.

    Both will be in federal court at 3 p.m. today to challenge the new rules. Neither clinic had any abortion appointments scheduled for today.

  • A Detroit man has been charged with the killing of his girlfriend and their unborn child:

    Jomiah Washington has been charged with 1st-degree murder, willful killing of an unborn child, mutilation of a dead body and felony firearm, the prosecutor’s office said.

    According to the prosecutor’s office, the girlfriend was killed and her body was burned May 28 in the 14000 block of Abbington in Detroit.
