Pro-life news brief 7-31-12

  • U.S. District Judge James Teilborg says Arizona’s fetal pain/20+ week abortion ban can take effect:

    U.S. District Judge James Teilborg said the statute may prompt a few pregnant women who are considering abortion to make the decision earlier. But he said the law is constitutional because it doesn’t prohibit any women from making the decision to end their pregnancies.

    The judge also wrote that the state provided “substantial and well-documented” evidence that an unborn child has the capacity to feel pain during an abortion by at least 20 weeks.Republican Gov. Jan Brewer signed the measure into law in April, making Arizona one of 10 states to enact types of 20-week bans.

Pro-life video of the day: Olympics celebrate socialized medicine

by Hans Johnson Many see the Affordable Care Act as the first step down the road toward emulating Britain’s health system, as celebrated during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. In a recent speech to the Royal Society of Medicine in London, Professor Patrick  Pullicino charged that some 130,000 patients are “allowed to die” or, […]

New Arizona anti-abortion law flouts 40 years of precedent

For almost 40 years, the law has been that you cannot ban previability abortions, and that’s exactly what Arizona did. ~ ACLU attorney Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, on a new Arizona law set to take affect Thursday that will ban abortions past 18 weeks gestation (counted as 20 weeks of pregnancy) except to save the life of […]

Coming soon, “The best book ever written on abortion”

There is a banner ad at the top of my site offering 35% off pre-orders of the soon-to-be-released book, Abandoned: The Untold Stories of the Abortion Wars, written by Dr. Monica Miller.

My endorsement of Abandoned will be on its back cover, along with the endorsement of several pro-life leaders like Fr. Frank Pavone, Joe Scheidler, David Bereit, Teresa Tomeo, Al Kresta, and best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza, who wrote in the book’s forward:

Quite simply, this is the best book ever written on abortion. Beautifully written, this is about the consequences of Roe v. Wade, as seen through the eyes of one woman, who tells a clear and compelling story with passion but without fanaticism. On a subject that is often heavy and depressing, this is a hard-hitting yet compassionate and moving book. Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought such a narrative could be done, only now it has been done.

I couldn’t more highly recommend Abandoned. I couldn’t put the manuscript down once I opened it this winter. In fact, I quoted a compelling section from Abandoned in a post back in February.

What every pro-lifer (esp Mitt Romney) should know about Tim Pawlenty

Guest post by Joel Briend, Ph.D.

He may or may not be on Mitt Romney’s short list for VP, but journalists always seem to have his name near the top of their list. At least Tim Pawlenty’spro-life credentials are reliable, right?

Well if you ask me, the view from under the Pawlenty bus ain’t so pretty.

As you may know, I have been researching and trying to bring into public awareness the abortion-breast cancer link (ABC link) for twenty years with some success, no thanks to Gov. Pawlenty.

Pro-life video of the day: Sex, the other Olympic sport

by LauraLoo

Warning: Adult content.

To many the Olympics are synonymous with sex – inside the bedroom and outside in public. The Olympics are helping these physically fit competitors fuel sexualized memories for life by allotting 15 condoms per athlete. This is 50,000 more condoms than what was dispensed during the 2008 Olympics in China.

Wait a minute. Can’t these obviously disciplined athletes buy and bring their own contraception?

How about a pro-choice dating service?

There had been some talk among Abortioneers in the past about dating and relationships, and how an anti-choice position would be a dealbreaker among potential mates. This then led to the imagining of a pro-choice dating service, where pro-choice folks can meet each other and fall hopelessly in love (or just hook up, whatever), without […]
