- Stand for Life features a video about unsung hero, John Barros. His faithfulness to the cause of life has saved at least 1,000 children from death by abortion. This man is an angel in the flesh:
- Secular Pro-Life invites your participation in a Tweetfest, happening today, to counter a Feminist Majority Foundation’s effort to “encourage wider education on the procedure” and “normalize the conversation.” No doubt, as SPL comments, the FMF “blog carnival” would really just be a way to “spread pro-abortion propaganda.”
- Christina at Real Choice is ready for today’s Tweetfest with some great tweet ideas and graphics ready for your use.
- Right to Life of Michigan reports a happy ending to a lawsuit brought by an Ann Arbor pro-lifer who was harassed and ticketed for displaying pro-life signs in his vehicle, which was parked outside a Planned Parenthood. Kudos to the pro-lifer who stood up for his free speech rights. The City of Ann Arbor settled the suit for $7,000.
- John Smeaton applauds Obianuju (“Uju”) Ekeocha (pictured left), founder and president of Culture of Life Africa, for her “bold defence of Africa against the imposition of contraception by Western agencies….” Smeaton quotes Ekeocha:
[W]hat Africa needs at this time is not a sexual revolution (which has not worked well in the Western world), rather what we need is authentic and sustainable development within the social and cultural frame work of our faith and family-oriented values.
- Wesley J. Smith points out how the Baby Boomer generation will long be remembered for ushering in abortion and possibly assisted suicide:
And now, according to Time, we are supposedly going to change “how we die.”…
Boomers are not a great generation. To the contrary, we did shamefully little considering how much we were given. Too busy patting ourselves on the back, perhaps, and breaking the china. Frankly, I think we are going to leave quite a mess. And if we do open the spigots to assisted suicide, it will be to our everlasting shame.
- Reflections of a Paralytic says a story she once shared about a young man with Down syndrome has been nominated for a Regional Emmy:
