- Kansas abortionists have filed suit against revised health department regulations. At first, the law had requirements for room size, which were much maligned by the pro-abort camp. Those requirements have been removed but the abortionists still don’t want the revised regulations which prevent non-physicians from giving prescriptions, require abortion clinics to allow the health department to review their records and require an hour wait in recovery.
- The Daily O’Collegian, Oklahoma State’s paper, has a piece by Temitope Akande who was planning on challenging the “ignorance and insensitivity” of a group displaying graphic images of abortion. His discussion with a pro-life volunteer didn’t make him pro-life but it helped him think more clearly about the issue:
But after listening to John, I realized that dismissing a fetus as just a part of the woman’s body is a very simplistic view; yes it is part of the woman, but it is also an independent life, an existence that is exactly where it is supposed to be. He also made a good point when he said the fact that people will do something anyway is not a good basis for public policy….
Finally, is it silly and a little hypocritical that a lot us are mad at the gruesome graphic photographs of aborted fetus being displayed on campus, but we are not equally appalled by the act that led to those photos?
- Dana Singiser (pictured left), a key White House aide, has been hired as the Vice President for Public Policy and Government Relations for Planned Parenthood.
- Two of Kermit Gosnell’s employees pled guilty yesterday to third-degree murder:
Andrea [sic] Moton, 34, admitted her involvement in the stabbing death of one late-term baby that she pulled from a toilet where it had been delivered.
Sherry West, 52, pleaded guilty in the February 2009 death of Karnamaya Mongar, a Bhutanese immigrant who was 19 weeks pregnant. Neither worker was trained or licensed for the work they did at the clinic….
Moton faces up to 120 years in prison. She was one of three employees who were so startled by the size of a nearly 30-week fetus allegedly born alive and killed that they each took pictures of the infant. Moton gave her cellphone photo to the FBI, the grand jury report said.
