Abortion supporters now both anti- “choice” and uber- “choice”


Planned Parenthood triggered a massive identity crisis in the pro-abortion world when it announced on February 9 it was abandoning the term “pro-choice.”

I mentioned at the time Planned Parenthood must certainly not have conferred with such groups as NARAL Pro-Choice America before dropping its bombshell.

The1PercentI don’t think abortion advocacy groups appreciate the fact that Planned Parenthood is a billion dollar business. So its decisions will be primarily market-driven, which may or may not be coincide with the best interest of ideological groups – one of the hard truths about the 1%.

Thus, Planned Parenthood basically hung NARAL, et al, out to dry, forcing them to defend their commitment to the word “choice.”

In an interview with Politico today, new NARAL president Ilyse Hogue said her group is doubling down…

  • TIME provides more information on the teenage couple in Texas who sued to prevent the young woman’s parents from forcing her to have an abortion:

    The baby is due Sept. 16. According to [the baby's father] Evan, he and R.E.K. — they began dating last summer — knew right away they would have the baby. “We’ve always been against abortion,” says Evan, who wants to become a welder (R.E.K. wants to attend nursing school). “As soon as we found out she was pregnant, we knew we wanted to keep it.”

    … It remains to be seen just how involved the girl’s parents will be with their new grandchild. While Burnside and her husband, who is not Evan’s biological father, are being supportive, the girl’s parents may find it harder to play a role: days after the judge’s ruling, Evan, a high school sophomore, married his pregnant girlfriend, a junior, in what Burnside calls a “shotgun” wedding.

Dr. Koop opposed eugenic abortions at Christ Hospital

I was sad to learn Dr. C. Everett Koop passed away on February 25. Dr. Koop was President Ronald Reagan’s pro-life surgeon general. Read Dr. Koop’s touching obituary at World Magazine. I came to personally learn just how strongly pro-life Dr. Koop was in 1999. I had just publicly revealed that my employer, Christ Hospital, […]

Pro-life vid of day: Preschooler’s life hinges on solving mystery

michaelby LauraLoo

3-year-old Michael Gonzalez of Florida has been diagnosed with food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome, and his parents are in a panic.

Michael can’t eat regular food, and requires 20 to 30 bottles of prescription-only formula, Neocate Junior, daily. But his predicament has gone from worrisome to alarming. Shortly after the formula manufacturer Nutricia changed its packaging in August 2012, Michael suffered from severe gastrointestinal distress. Convinced that the company also changed the formula, his parents have hoarded containers full of older stock, which will expire this year in October.

Population implosion makes conservative “want to procreate”

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

~ Tara Culp-Ressler, ThinkProgress.org, April 14

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
