- Generations for Life has more information on the upcoming Nationwide Rallies for Religious Freedom to be held this Friday, March 23rd. Find your nearest rally location here.
- Abolitionist Society effectively dismantles the popular anti-personhood, straw man “argument” which claims that if human rights should be granted to zygotes, then human sex cells should also be granted personhood rights.
- The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition notes that the bill attempting to legalize assisted suicide in Vermont has failed.
- At Pro-Life in TN, Susie Allen writes about Mother Jones’ attempt at cleverness by suggesting that women “knit a vagina or womb and send it to [their local] Congressman with a note to chastise or appreciate” based on whether or not the representative supports Obamacare’s contraception mandate. Strangely enough, the site lists message suggestions, one of them being “We do not need government interference with our doctors or our healthcare” despite the fact that they are demanding that everyone – including the Church – pay for their contraceptives.
- At Americans United for Life, Mary Harned details the anti-woman philosophy that undergirds Roe v. Wade. She sums up:
So, what does Roe truly mean for America?
It means the virtual obliteration of societal encouragement and affirmation for women who want to bring “unexpected” children into the world. It means that women today are condescendingly told that, without abortion, they are unable to realize their full potential. It means that men are helpless to plead for the lives of their unborn babies. And it means that approximately 52 million unborn American children, robbed of any “rights, freedoms, and opportunities,” have been aborted since Roe.
- At Live Action, Kristi Burton Brown has a story from one of the often-forgotten victims of abortion – the father who loses his child.
- Jay at LTI shares the story of how one reader’s family was affected by a past rape and resulting pregnancy.
- At Ethika Politika, Jacqueline Harvey describes why she refused to accept a blanket prescription for the Pill to “treat” her endometriosis, and instead found help through diet and lifestyle changes:
Unlike Sandra Fluke, I know all too well about the medical “need” for contraception. I assert the medical need is not for contraception, but for real medical treatments. Instead, women are reduced to settling for the side effects of a drug that was not designed to treat any medical ailments, but intended to allow people to have sex without pregnancy….
It baffles me that it is self-proclaimed feminists who are indignant about not getting free contraception somehow fail to see that women with real health problems are woefully neglected.
