  • Culture Campaign says Planned Parenthood is not happy about a new Arizona law allowing unannounced inspections of abortion facilities. (My hairdresser gets unannounced inspections and no one has ever died in her chair.) Why should the abortion industry be exempt? Josh Kredit, legal counsel of the Center for Arizona Policy remarked:

    It was brought to our attention that every health-care institution in the state is subject to unannounced inspections by [ADHS] if they have reasonable cause to believe something is going on inside, except for abortion clinics. We’re almost saying we value the women that go into abortion clinics less than everyone else.


  • Down on the Pharm links to some comments made by former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who seems to feel his accomplishments have earned him a special place in the afterlife. Did he forgot about his promotion of prenatal homicide? What hubris. The Weekly Standard states:

    Pointing to his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation, he said with a grin: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.

  • Abolitionist Society of Oklahoma wonders why many of the people who stood with the Bundy family in Nevada against the government don’t also stand with preborn children:

    I know that many of those who went to Nevada to support the Bundy family are Christians and consider themselves to be pro-life. Some may even speak out against the practice of human abortion from time to time, but action is taken on this and not on the legal murdering of human beings created in the image and likeness of the living and true God? Apparently child sacrifice just isn’t “enough”.

  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal compares the case of a woman who allowed her dog to die via dehydration and starvation with the case of Terri Schiavo:

    The outrage in all of this isn’t that Gammon was punished for her crime against Roxy, it’s that the deaths of the Terri Schiavo’s among us aren’t considered criminal at all. It is that our legislators and judges do not “behave as any normal person would have,” protecting humans with the same ferocity as they would if the subject in consideration were a dog.The greatest tragedy of all is that humans have a long way to go before we enjoy equal dignity, equal standing with our pets in a court of law.

  • At Bound4Life, Ellie Saul says that while she is a coupon fanatic, abortion coupons are over the top. Some abortion mills offer Sunday abortion coupons and discounts, as well as coupons for Plan B. What’s next – bring a friend coupons, two for the price of one coupons, or Happy Hour coupons?


  • Big Blue Wave takes abortion proponent Amanda Marcotte to task for attempting to smear the Duggar family in an article that’s actually about someone the Duggars know. The headline, picture and the wording of the article initially lead you to believe that the subject of the article is the Duggar family, which is irresponsible journalism. It is interesting how, while Marcotte believes other people should stay out of women’s reproductive choices, she and her ilk (like the anti-bullying bully Dan Savage, who recently made hideous comments about one of the Duggar daughters) can’t seem to stop spewing hate about the Duggars’ reproductive choices.
  • Kansans for Life shares a letter to the editor of the Wichita Eagle which puts the newspaper and the abortion industry in their place. The letter, written by “an ordinary pro-life citizen”, states that despite the Eagle’s “gushing” over the 1,200 abortions performed by South Wind Women’s Center, “in only six weeks, just one Wichita pro-life center alone sees 1,200 women! And rather than offer death, it offers true ‘service.’”
  • American Life League’s Judie Brown never shies away from controversy, and in this article chastising surrogate parenting, she cuts right to the chase:
    Recently, Christopher White wrote a commentary on the ethical problems associated with “surrogate parenthood for money.” He argued that paying for surrogate parenting is actually a form of human trafficking. His position is an interesting one, particularly because he presents his perspective in the context of many surrogate mothers who have later regretted their decision to carry someone else’s child….Pope Benedict warned against “the lure of the technology of artificial insemination” in which “scientism and the logic of profit seem to dominate the field of infertility and human procreation, to the point of limiting many other areas of research.”

    Such technology denigrates God’s design and very frequently makes false promises to those who suffer because of infertility while never mentioning the perverted uses to which the technology is being put today.

    Isn’t it long past time to proclaim that God’s plan never causes the kind of suffering and anguish man brings on himself when he attempts to ignore God? Some things will never be normal, but they can be—and are—exceedingly wrong.

White’s commentary even mentions a fertility program that caters to homosexuals but doesn’t mention their specialty – perhaps wanting to avoid controversy. Brown notes that has many issues with advanced technology have gotten out of control. The liberal media has jumped on the bandwagon of the “new families” that advanced technology can create, but Brown lauds the view of the Catholic Church and the wisdom of their teaching about the sinfulness of IVF and surrogate parenting. Hard messages are not always well received.
