  • Welcome to our newest blog by University of Michigan Students for Life, which is celebrating the group’s first known baby saved in their Pregnant on Campus Campaign. The students used flyers, chalkings, and signage to acquaint students with resources available for them to choose life. Congratulations to them!

What is wrong with this flier?

A couple weeks ago a lady struck up a conversation with me as I sat enjoying the weather at an outdoor cafe in Washington, D.C. Not long into it she wondered what I did for a living. I told her pro-life work, which always elicits interesting responses.

But this one was new. “So, are you one of those pro-life crazies?” she asked.

A bit taken aback I hesitated, then answered, “By the definition I expect you use, yes, I am. I believe in protesting and showing photos of aborted babies.”

Jimmy Carter: Jesus Christ would not approve of abortions

I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions and that was one of the problems I had when I was president, having to uphold Roe v. Wade. And I did everything I could to minimize the need for abortions. I made it easy to adopt children, for instance, that were unwanted and […]

  • Here’s a quote you wouldn’t normally see at RH Reality Check:

    Yet both sides agree there is a moral urgency to ending the contamination of human beings from toxic chemicals, beginning in the womb. Government interest in fetal life shouldn’t be limited to blocking women’s right to choose. Instead, governments should choose to protect the interest in a healthy fetus by protecting women’s health, specifically women’s right to bear children and their right to a healthy pregnancy.

    Interestingly, Margie Kelly thinks that “by separating fetuses from the fetal environment [by displaying prenatal photos and ultrasounds], [pro-lifers] make women into enemies of the fetus.”

Per MSM it could only be Planned Parenthood supporters withholding donations from Komen

The mainstream media is reporting that donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure have dropped substantially in the wake of its decision and subsequent reversal to defund Planned Parenthood.

According to MSM, this must be due to disgruntled Planned Parenthood supporters, for instance this March 23 CBS News story:

Obama plugs Planned Parenthood in new video

Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood are Siamese twins that share one heart, cold and dark as it is. One cannot survive without the other.

Imagine the dire straits Planned Parenthood would find itself in today without Obama fending off its attackers these past three years. Planned Parenthood’s fortunes rest on Barack Obama. And vice versa. From the Boston Globe, March 27:

Being pro-choice: The “essence of misogyny”

… [I]t is not feminism to support abortion…. [T]o argue that women are unequal without the “right” to abortion is to believe that pregnancy is something that makes women less-than. But pregnancy is something that is both uniquely female and literally as natural as breathing. To believe that abortion is necessary for women’s equality is […]

Celebrating Back Up Your Birth Control Day

Today the liberal feminist movement celebrates ingesting megadoses of environmentally toxic, cancer causing, pheromone altering, libido killing, chemically modified, female steroids, yeah!

Matthew Hennessey could be making the same observation about hormonal birth control pills and emergency contraceptives as abortion. Just add levonorgestrel drospirenone, ethinyl estradiol, norgestrel (ingredients in Plan B, Next Choice, and/or basic BC pill), and ulipristal acetate (EllaOne) to his list of synthetic compounds:

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
