- Wesley J. Smith reviews his predictions for 2012. The good – and bad – news is that he was quite accurate. Watch for his 2013 predictions in January.
- Stand True announces the schedule for the 2013 March for Life Youth Rally in Washington, D.C. Make your plans now to attend!
- Reflections of a Paralytic encourages readers to check out a new German documentary on reproductive technologies, featuring Eggsploitation creator Jennifer Lahl (pictured left) of the Center for Bioethics and Culture. RP states:
This issue should get just as much attention from the pro-life movement as abortion, if not more so. As a commenter on my previous post noted, lots of Christians don’t even question its morality. Meanwhile, the fertility industry is getting increasingly out of control and thousands upon thousands of innocent human beings are paying the ultimate price.
- Voice for Hope shares some great pro-life graphics to post on Facebook and other social media.
- ProWomanProLife finds some heartwarming stories that will restore your faith in humanity.
- Americans United for Life applauds the victories of two Christian colleges in their legal challenge against Obamacare’s birth control mandate:
The case in question is the first of more than 40 legal challenges to the so-called HHS mandate to be argued before an appellate court. In an amicus curiae brief submitted in support of the Colleges’ challenge to the mandate, AUL outlined the life-ending action of so-called “emergency contraception” and argued that the mandate violates the Colleges’ sincerely held beliefs and Freedom of Conscience.
- Pro-Life Action League has a great post about their recent Converted conference, featuring testimonies of former abortion industry workers. Self-described “pro-choice Christian” blogger Kellee Terrell (pictured right) attended the conference and wrote about it mockingly, even while expressing concern about the new strategy of reaching out to abortion industry workers. PLAL writes:
Perhaps Terrell found it difficult to debunk our speakers in detail because, despite herself, she found their stories compelling. She even admits, “Although many of the stories were flatly ludicrous, the power of the conversion narrative, dating back as it does to the [Norma McCorvey] ‘Roe’ conversion, is undeniable.”
- ProLife NZ points out the inconsistent logic of a pro-choice blogger who states, “Women are in the workforce. Women get pregnant. Companies simply have to find a way to cope.” Imagine the blogger’s reaction if pro-lifers were to reply, “Women have sex. Sex makes babies. Women simply have to find a way to cope.” PLNZ notes:
Isn’t it funny how, with one magic wave of the ideological wand, the very same feminists who think that women shouldn’t be forced to accept babies they never consented to, actually start demanding that employers (many of whom are women) should be forced to accept babies that they never consented to.
