  … He’s such a great baby, he’s just making me look good! ~ Actress Alyssa Milano gushing over her newborn son, Milo Thomas Bugliari, as quoted by US Weekly, September 28   [HT: Laura Loo]

What’s wrong with this picture? Pro-life groups join pro-abortion groups to oppose the Ohio Heartbeat Bill

For the first time I can think of, pro-lifers are divided into three camps on a pro-life bill. Usually it’s just two, which is bad enough. I wrote on September 14 that both Ohio Right to Life and the Personhood people were actively opposing the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortion in Ohio from […]

New York Times laments “disappearing” abortion rights

A September 24 New York Times editorial entitled, “Where abortion rights are disappearing,” lamented the “spate” of new pro-life laws passed by state legislators “concocting new schemes” to make abortion go away. Yadda yadda. What interested me about the piece was a map and chart included by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The amount of movement […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Bills to ban partial-birth abortion in Michigan will soon be signed by Governor Snyder. The most noteworthy part of this article is that the reporter actually describes partial-birth abortion. How often does that happen?

Abortion proponent “thrilled” by an abortion on “Grey’s Anatomy”

One of many problems abortion proponents have is sending mixed messages about getting one.  Whether to act glib and risk offending normal sensibilities, or to act serious and risk humanizing the baby, that is the question. Maya at Feministing took the spectator-at-the coliseum approach earlier this week, saying she was “thrilled” and found it “refreshing” […]

Lunch Break: “Were It Not For Grace”

by LauraLoo I heard this song sung by Larnelle Harris for the first time this past LORD’s day while taking a beautiful autumn walk. Praise be to the LORD Almighty, more sovereign than all my sin!

Barry Lynn: Jesus cares more about helping the poor than about abortion

Let’s get this straight. Even though abortion is not mentioned in the Bible, it is obvious to these conservatives that not only should Christians not get one; the government should bar anyone from obtaining one. However, when the deep concern for the poor is commonly located in the same sacred text, it means absolutely nothing […]

To be clear, some crisis pregnancy centers can be shady. They have been known to misleadingly portray themselves as full-service women’s health clinics, or to obscure religious affiliations. They may offer discredited info on things like “the link between abortion and depression,” or engage in what some describe as bullying or pressuring women into carrying pregnancies to term.

But the state really shouldn’t be in the business of deciding what completely non-criminal information a private operation may make available. And many businesses and non-profits have owners with religious beliefs that they don’t necessarily broadcast. In other words, you may condemn these pregnancy centers’ tactics or views, but they’re not de facto doing anything illegal. What’s more, they may doing some good: Despite not offering contraception or abortion advice, the centers do offer things like free pregnancy tests, screenings for sexually transmitted infections, ultrasounds, and baby clothes.

If particular centers are engaging in deceptive or fraudulent practices, then by all means, go after them for that. But the point should be making them be honest about what they are, not trying to turn them into something they’re not.

~ Pro-choicer Elizabeth Nolan Brown (pictured), voicing her objections to California’s Reproductive FACT Act, which “would require pregnancy centers to post notices saying that reproductive health services, including abortion, are available to pregnant women in the state,” Reason.com, May 27
