We welcome your suggestions for additions to our Top Blogs (see tab on right side of home page)! Email Susie@jillstanek.com.
- In our newest addition to the blogroll, Kelly Clinger tells of her difficult decision to confess her two past abortions to her young children.
- At Live Action, Jennie Stone shows once again that despite attempted media and pro-choice political spin, Planned Parenthood’s main “service” to pregnant women is abortion – and something they do every 97 seconds. Staggering.
- Big Blue Wave links to LifeNews regarding a new medical journal report which “completely debunks the Guttmacher Institute numbers on ‘unsafe’ abortions in several Latin American countries.” It appears the research arm of Planned Parenthood is – surprise, surprise – heavily overstating the number of clandestine abortions in various countries in an effort to pressure their governments into legalizing abortion.
- Culture Campaign links to an interview with late-term abortionist Willie J. Parker (pictured left), who claims his “Christian faith” led him to the conclusion that “the happiness of the mother outweighs ‘the life of a pre-viable or lethally flawed fetus.’” Parker also states:
The women most likely to be in those [second trimester abortion] situations are trapped in poverty, often women of color or poor socioeconomic backgrounds, less education, and women and girls at the extremes of reproductive age.
When did killing become a solution for any of these issues?
- Generations for Life reports on the increasing number of pro-life youth in Europe who are making their voices heard.
- At Americans United for Life, Charmaine Yoest believes the most recent Gallup poll fails to accurately reflect the percentage of pro-life Americans. Yoest claims it is higher than 50%:
During the healthcare debates we saw that 7 in 10 Americans – pro-life and pro-choice – did not want to see their tax monies going to fund abortion, and we’ve seen tremendous support for commonsense limits on abortion – such as limiting abortion after 20 weeks because of the health risks to women and requiring parental involvement in the abortion decisions of young girls.
We also know that when it comes to voting, those motivated to protect life vote 2 to 1 compared to those who want unfettered, unregulated abortion.
- At Ethika Politika, Mattias Caro discusses the issues surrounding the death penalty and human dignity, pointing out that unlike any other creature in the known universe, humans are moral agents, responsible for our actions. He writes:
Most debates on the death penalty lead to a co-op on the lack of moral authority for the agent executor to carry out the act. “Who are we to kill someone out of revenge?” or “What if we execute the wrong person?”….
All of these… only address the moral role of the executioner. They are not questions that address a basic concern, “Do some actions simply warrant death?”
