- 40 Days for Life celebrates the cumulative results of this year’s campaign. 8 abortion workers left their jobs, 3 abortion clinics closed, and at least 883 babies were saved this year alone, bringing the total to nearly 6,000 saved since the movement began less than 5 years ago.
- Big Blue Wave reports that Pepsi has decided to no longer contract with Senomyx to use aborted human fetal kidney cells in its flavor enhancer testing.
- At Live Action, Lucy LeFever hammers on pro-choice hypocrisy with regard to informed consent laws. One woman is campaigning to provide iPods with music to women who undergo required ultrasound procedures before abortion so they can drown out the sound of their preborn children’s heartbeats:
This recent action, as well as the entire debate over ultrasound laws, has blatantly highlighted the pro-choice movement’s obsession with drowning out truth. Rather than providing women with honest medical information, pro-choice advocates opt to conceal the facts. They wish to silence massacre with melody, blood with ballads, slaughter with song….
Women should know what they’re getting when they walk into a crisis pregnancy center, abortion advocates cry. But when it comes to a life-altering medical procedure, the calls for clear information disappear and are even condemned when they come from the other side. It seems as though the values of truth and honest information matter only when they are encouraging abortion.
- Fletcher Armstrong shares Center for Bio-Ethical Reform director Gregg Cunningham’s BBC radio interview. Cunningham had originally been booked for a second program, but British Pregnancy Advisory Service abortion providers scheduled for the debate bowed out, resulting in its cancellation. Cunningham concludes pro-lifers must make their case in the public square, thanks to media suppression.
- Abolitionist Society of OK has been posting its own non-graphic posters on the University of Oklahoma campus. Not surprisingly, they are usually removed within a day. Add this to the growing list of college campuses hostile to pro-life speech.
- After Abortion reposts an archived article recognizing how painful the celebration of Mother’s Day can be for post-abortive women.
- Down on the Pharm, though happy about the escape of blind forced abortion opponent Chen Guangcheng (pictured right), has concerns about the possible reaction of the Obama administration:
The saddest difficulty is that he is unlikely to receive any aid or protection from the most pro abortion, U.S. government in history. Neither Obama nor Planned Parenthood oppose[s] forced abortion in China, or sex selective abortions enough to oppose either practice.
- Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life laments that the MN Medical Association “is going out of its way to oppose commonsense safety requirements… to protect an unfettered abortion industry.” The group opposes the requirement that abortion facilities be licensed as other ambulatory surgical treatment centers and that a physician be physically present when administering the RU-486 abortion pill. In the past they have also opposed informed consent requirements.
- Kansans for Life says that despite Kansas’ pro-choice media’s complaints about money being spent “on litigation to uphold pro-life laws enacted in 2011,” the real problem is that pro-choice attorneys are overbilling the taxpayers:
At issue is a “windfall” for clinic attorneys – according to the State – including over $78,000 for ineligible legal work as well as using indefensible attorney rates of $400 per hour. All but one of the clinics’ attorneys lack ANY experience in this type of litigation, yet they charged nearly double what attorneys experienced in this specialty would charge – $225 per hour.
State attorneys (including the office of Attorney General Derek Schmidt) demonstrated how the court is being wrongly asked to pay for over-billing at over-inflated rates, including 53.6 billable hours in one day and 22 hours to write a basic motion.
- Culture Campaign shares the reactions to Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant’s view on Democrats’ “one mission in life.” Abortion:
