“We have a couple coming in for a sex-selection abortion,” [my clinic director] said. “The fetus is a girl, and their culture prefers boys. I want to know if you will be able to work with them without judging or being negative. Be honest. If you can’t be their advocate, I will. I need to [...]

- The Planned Parenthood in Columbia, Missouri is indefinitely suspending abortions – again:
This isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood has suspended abortions at the Columbia clinic while doctors were unavailable. The clinic halted abortions for four months beginning last October after its lone Columbia physician was sent overseas on active military duty.

It’s bad when somebody presents a political view and somebody disagrees with them enough to do vandalism and damage to an innocent bystander such as Euro-Asian Automotive. ~ Euro-Asian Automotive owner George Rode lamenting the damage his business sustained as a result of vandalism of a pro-life billboard sponsored by StandUpGirl.com, as reported by KEZI [...]

- ProLifeBlogs posts a C-FAM article describing abortion proponents’ defeat at the United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development last week:
Along with the Holy See, Nicaragua, Chile, Russia, Honduras, Syria, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Egypt all rejected the introduction of “reproductive rights” into the Rio +20 outcome document.
The lips of the righteous know what is fitting,
but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse. ~ Proverbs 32:10
Warning: Vulgarity ahead.
The other side has apparently determined it can no longer command attention by employing logic. As pro-life ideology begins to dominate politics as well as the thinking American mind, abortion proponents are increasingly exercising the use of shock to make their points.
The recent uptick in pro-abortion vulgarity can somewhat be traced back to Oklahoma Democrat state Senator Judy Eason McIntyre, who couldn’t deal with the passage of a personhood bill in her chamber in March. So she joined a protest holding the stately sign, “IF I WANTED THE GOVERNMENT IN MY WOMB I’D F*** A SENATOR.”

Though in India it is illegal to have sex-selective abortions, it is commonplace in the many rural villages – an estimated six million in the past ten years. This practice has gotten more attention recently with the publication of [...]
A June 25 article in Newsweek about the Personhood movement is shaking up the pro-abortion community. Just read a sampling of the 315 comments and counting that have poured in since it was crossposted on The Daily Beast since yesterday.
You can’t look around a room and tell who was conceived with wine and roses and who was conceived on a street corner. We’re all human beings; we all have value. ~ Liz Carl (pictured right), as quoted from the June 25 episode of the Emmy Award winning pro-life television show Facing Life Head-On (episode [...]
Former NBC and CNN news anchor Campbell Brown penned a New York Times op ed over the weekend entitled, “Planned Parenthood’s self-destructive behavior.”
With such a favorable title, pro-lifers might be tempted to glam on to Brown as one of us. Not so fast.
Before lodging her complaint against Planned Parenthood, Campbell first gave it kudos. She promoted the United States’ largest abortion provider as really not being about that, stating, “Most of Planned Parenthood’s work focuses on health care for low-income women, things like screenings for breast cancer and diabetes, and family planning.”
To back up that claim Campbell parroted Planned Parenthood’s line that “abortions represent only 3 percent of its work,” when in actuality about 10% of Planned Parenthood clients get abortions, according to FactCheck.org, and 38.4% of its clinic income comes from abortion, according to Live Action.
Campbell also acknowledged in her piece she is pro-abortion.
So what was her gist? That Planned Parenthood has morphed into an arm of the Democrat Party, to its detriment:
