- Secular ProLife notes NARAL’s strong objection to a North Carolina bill which would add information on “the link between abortion and preterm birth” to school sex education curricula. Though even the pro-choice New York Times has reported on this link, NARAL has chosen to label it “propaganda.”
- Down on the Pharm examines the case of Kristopher Del Campo, a DePaul University student who is facing expulsion for exposing the identities of 13 confessed vandals – all of them adults – who were caught on security cameras destroying an authorized pro-life club display. The student vandals (who have not been disciplined) were named in a report, which Del Campo then posted online.

In my spirit I knew the real reason,” he said. “It is the shame and guilt that they are protesting.”
“One lady was yelling at us….

Pro-life activists were able to confirm that on March 1, the clinic called an ambulance company instead of 911 for this emergency, despite the fact that this can cause delays and is supposedly against the clinic’s own policy.
- Alveda King adds her own perspective on the recently-released study showing a large increase in breast cancer among young women.
