Pro-choice Halloween costumes

Warning: Graphic and disturbing photos ahead. Halloween affords yet another opportunity to point out how differently pro-lifers and pro-choicers think. Pro-life thoughts on this day range from designing cute pro-life pumpkins, to changing our Facebook profiles to remind Americans of the “true horror” in our midst. Pro-abortion thoughts range from tacky, to gross, to sick, […]

Stanek Sunday quote: “What have you done? Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.” ~ Gen 4:10

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to […]

Stanek weekend question: Would you watch a live-streamed home birth?

Mashable reported on September 30: A chiropractor in Ottawa gave an unusual invitation to the World Wide Web this week. “Hi, I’m Dr. Nancy Salgueiro with YourBirthCoach.com,” [pictured right, with her family] she said in a YouTube video, “and I’d like to invite you into my home to watch my live birth online.”

Meet Rick Santorum’s precious daughter Bella, “the center of our universe”

Trisomy is similar to Down syndrome in that the former has three of the 18th chromosome and the latter has three of the 21st chromosome. Many children with Trisomy 18 die within hours or days after birth. Many children with Trisomy 18 are aborted. […]

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

~ Tara Culp-Ressler, ThinkProgress.org, April 14

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
