  • Down on the Pharm reviews the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, which seem to support something pro-lifers have been saying for a long time – that minorites are targeted by the abortion industry:

    … 63 percent of the abortions in the U.S. end the lives of Black or Hispanic babies. This wildly outpaces the proportions of these minorities in the general population, and it directly relates to the locations of the abortion clinics.

  • Clinic Quotes discusses a stunningly dishonest statement made by an abortionist on the issue of multiple abortions. Most people are repulsed by the idea of using abortion as birth control – but this man even suggests that abortion enhances a woman’s fertility:

    Abortionist Dr. Lawrence Scott encourages women to get pregnant and have abortions:

    Getting pregnant now can be good family planning for the future even if you have a termination. I am convinced of that….

    Contrary to how much people think, an aborted pregnancy can help preserve fertility and perhaps keep you from developing certain physical problems later in life.

    This, of course, flies in the face of studies and statistics that show women who have abortions are more likely to miscarry and give birth prematurely.

  • Priests for Life’s Fr. Frank Pavone and other pro-life leaders were locked out of the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office for attempting to deliver an official letter asking that the remains of the children killed by abortionist Kermit Gosnell be released for burial:

    About 50 pro-life activists participated in a prayer vigil outside the Medical Examiner’s Office on Friday morning. Afterwards, five of them attempted to hand-deliver the letter…. [T]he decision to lock the door took them by surprise, since previously staff had given the go-ahead for them to deliver the letter. The Medical Examiner also called the police, who asked to meet with the pro-life group’s attorney…. [Bryan Kemper stated,] “The attorney tried to go in, but they told her flat-out no, they will not talk to us, they already have a plan in place….

    The medical examiner’s office says that anyone can claim those bodies for a funeral…. We have papers, we had the legal paper we issued. And they are refusing to even talk to us.”

  • At National Review, Michael J. New is encouraged by the honesty displayed in a recent New York Times analysis of public opinion on abortion.
  • Euthanasia Prevention Coalition links to a must-read article by Daily Mail columnist Melanie Phillips, describing how centralized medicine leads to cost-over-care protocols and death by dehydration when the bureaucracy determines that quality of life no longer exists. EPC writes:

    The problems with the Liverpool Pathway are the same problems that are occurring across the “western-world.”

    In Canada we are experiencing a crisis of care within our medical system as we continue to build a more centralized, controlled, bureaucratic, financially bankrupt, morally negative system. We have stopped caring about individuals and we have turned “best practices” into a one-size fits all system.

    Every nation needs adopt systems of patient centred care.

  • At the Abolitionist Society of OK, Don Simmons shares five reasons why he believes Christians should support their Church Repent project, in which graphic images are used to picket outside churches.
  • Culture Campaign posts a video of OB/GYN Dr. Freda McKissic Bush, who describes 24-year-old Tonya Reaves’ autopsy report. Reaves died after receiving a second trimester abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood.

    DeniseNoe says:

    OF COURSE females who abort are more likely to miscarry later. They are training their bodies to reject embryos and fetuses.
    To encourage a cavalier attitude toward getting pregnant “because you can just abort” is irresponsible in the extreme. It is not only anti-unborn but anti-female.

    The law or procedures may say anyone can claim an unclaimed body, but it’s been a long time since many Americans gave a rip about anything outside of what they can and can’t get away with. Lately I have come to see the law largely as a joke, or rather, the people who claim to uphold or execute them.

    To think immediate medical attention, instead of being left lying at the clinic bleeding, might well have saved this young woman’s life. Don’t the “medical professionals” at Planned Parenthood recognize a medical emergency when they see one?  We’ve heard of family pets exercising better judgment, and saving an owner’s life.
    I hope her family finds a very good lawyer.

    Chris, I couldn’t agree more.  Once you see this – you realize that there is no social safety net.  You realize how the legality of abortion isolates human beings – and how it has a powerful and hidden effect on the mind of the culture.  The effect of legal abortion on the mind and spirit of a culture is oppressive.  I can think of nothing more oppressive than legal abortion.  It mocks the law to its very core.

    Even the very idea of abortion is oppressive. What an awful idea.

    Even if it were true that abortion improved health and fertility, it would still be sick. It’s a short toss from cannibalism, in its way. Killing other people for your selfish gain. Killing babies to keep you feeling healthy. It’s like something from a sick science fiction book.
     
    And what of the woman who feeds into this lie? What of her, 5 or 10 years later, when she and her spouse are ready for a baby, and they keep miscarrying? What of her well-being, when she can’t stop blaming herself, worrying that this is “God’s punishment” for aborting that baby, or those babies, in her youth? I know she exists. I’ve met her more than a couple times. She isn’t uncommon, this woman who abortionists have damaged so thoroughly. Will you be there, “Dr.” Scott, to help build this woman out of the pit into which you have thrown her?

    Other stunningly dishonest things include using the present tense for a statement published in 1995, and claiming that a statement from 1995 “flies in the face of” a study published in 2006.

    (Denise) How can you even entertain this as a possibility, MaryRose?  It is OBVIOUS that when you abort, you are getting your body accustomed to REJECTING embryos and fetuses. Equally obvious is that this bodily training is apt to precipitate future miscarriages.
    There is obviously nothing healthy about getting pregnant and then deliberately having this natural process unnaturally halted by having the embryo or fetus ripped out of your womb or poisoned and burned out as might be the case for later abortions.
    One can champion abortion being legal but still see that to advocate it as a means to future health and fertility is utterly crackpot.

    Denise,
    Let me clarify: I’m NOT entertaining it as a possibility. It is clear and has been for a while that abortion damages your fertility and does nothing to improve it. I’m pointing out that even if that were not true, the act of getting pregnant and then aborting to in some way benefit you is in itself sick.

    “How can you even entertain this as a possibility, MaryRose?”
    Actually, I think it’s useful to entertain these possibilities, as absurd as they may be. The reason is that we must make it clear that we oppose abortion because it is the taking of innocent human life, not because of any effects it may or may not have on the woman having it. For example, I am sometimes concerned about all the attention given to the abortion breast cancer link and the alleged mental health effects of abortion. This issues are valid concerns in their own right, but when pro-lifers focus on them, it makes it sound like abortion would be okay in the absence of these problems. But in reality, abortion would still be wrong even if it reduced the risk of breast cancer and improved mental health. So, in conclusion, abortion would still be wrong even if it had any benefits and we must communicate this message.
