  • 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.”

Lunch Break: Sister celebrates brother on Down Syndrome Day

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:

abortionposterby Kelli

Abortion is a normal thing that women do, and we should stop asking women to sit in silence when the topic comes up….

I don’t feel very brave when I talk about my abortion. I feel small and scared.

But I don’t like staying silent out of fear. I don’t think that’s how anyone has ever gone about winning civil rights. And we have a lot of work to do.

So let’s talk about our abortions. Everyone who is able to, everyone who is ready–let’s speak out. Let’s treat them the way we’d treat, say, a root canal.

Our health care system walls reproductive care off into its own domain: treating birth control differently than other prescriptions, insisting that women obtain abortion care at special clinics rather than undergoing this simple outpatient surgery at the gynecologist’s office.

Let’s push back by treating it like it’s just another extremely common medical procedure.

And whether or not we disclose our abortions, whether or not we’ve even had them, let’s talk as though having an abortion is a perfectly okay option to consider when you’re very unhappy about being pregnant. Let’s act like women have a choice.

Let’s tell our friends that there is nothing wrong with ending an unwanted, life-disrupting, economically catastrophic pregnancy, and let’s listen to what they say and support them in whatever decisions they make….

Let’s get to the point where telling abortion stories at a party is just as common as telling birth stories. As long as we stay silent, it’s a right that can be taken away from us.
