  • A California assemblywoman has taken up the mantle of “increasing access to abortion” in the state where it is arguably most accessible. Her bill would allow non-physicians to be abortionists.
  • The pro-life student group at Oklahoma State is suing the university after being preventing from distributing leaflets with images of abortion.
  • A California man named John Collins has been charged with attempted homicide (among other crimes) after he attempted to kill an unborn child in a Target parking lot (video here):

    … [T]he woman got away in the damaged vehicle, but the suspect followed her to a nearby retail parking lot where the confrontation resumed.

    “During that time, he armed himself with a baseball bat again,” said [Officer Chris] Trim. “And, according to the victim, swung the baseball bat, striking her in the stomach. She is seven months pregnant.”

    In addition to attempted homicide, Collins is charged with domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon and making death threats. The woman was taken to a local hospital. She and her unborn child are said to be okay.
