  • At National Review, Michael J. New addresses Politico’s recent poll, the results of which were used to try and make Democrats’ views on abortion appear mainstream, when they aren’t. The Democratic Party supports abortion on demand, not abortion with restrictions.
  • At Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone also responds to the results of both the Politico and Gallup polls:

    “When 80 percent of voters in highly contested states and Congressional districts say they want babies protected from late-term abortions, if not most or all abortions, it’s pretty clear who the extremists are – those who support abortion on demand.”…

    Father Pavone noted that both polls showed a minority of Americans – 28 percent in the Gallup poll and 19 percent in Politico survey — favoring legal abortion at any time and for any reason.

    “These findings are consistent with what we have seen for many years,” Father Pavone said. “Most Americans reject most abortions. It is simply false to say that most Americans support Roe v. Wade, because that decision brought us the extreme policy of abortion on demand, which most of the public rejects.”


  • ProLifeNZ says the social media push to #BringBackOurGirls – referring to the 300 school girls who were kidnapped by Muslim extremists in Nigeria – is leaving out some important missing girls:

    … [R]aising awareness of the plight of the girls is reflective, no doubt, of the admirable sentiment, a sense that there is a need to do something about it.

    In many countries in the world girls are aborted or killed after birth simply because they are girls…. The extreme sexism that is sex-selective abortion should be prompting all of us to cry #bringbackourunborngirls and taking active steps in our community to stop such a thing occurring. We can do more than a hashtag to help our girls in our nation.

    If you believe that the unborn is a human person, and I am speaking to those of you who do, you should carry the cry relentlessly. A hashtag cannot save those girls in Nigeria, but there are practical ways that we can make a difference in the lives of the people around us.

    Where are those 200 million missing girls? Where is our generation? Where is the social media outcry about them?

  • At ProWomanProLife, Andrea Mrozek points out that discussing the personhood of the preborn might not be the most effective crisis counseling method. Women in crisis are thinking mainly about themselves at that point:

    But pro-life counseling in the midst of crisis cannot focus on personhood, because that is not the predominant issue for women in crisis.

    It is truly any number of the following issues: My life will change too much, I can’t envision this going well, I need to keep training for my Olympic bid, I don’t have the money, my husband is against me, my boyfriend will leave me, etc….


  • Wesley J. Smith deconstructs the junk science of Amanda Marcotte and PZ Myers (pictured right), who have pathetically attempted to redefine “human life” and “conception”, turning their supposed “science” into nothing more than philosophical mumbo-jumbo:

    A sperm is a cell, it is alive but it isn’t a living organism. Ditto an egg. When they join, they cease and a new, distinct human organism – complete with its own genetic makeup different from his or her parents – has come into being, e.g. a new human life.

    But apparently because life evolved from the primordial soup there never is a new life [which is Myers’ assertion]….

    Whether there is or is not “meaning” to the distinction between previous life and new life, isn’t a scientific assertion. It is a philosophical belief.

  • At Secular Pro-Life, Kris Skul lists five secular arguments against abortion that pro-lifers would do best to avoid.
  • At Stand True, Bryan Kemper shares the story of former pro-life missionary/sidewalk counselor, Ashley Baldwin, who convinced a mother to choose life for her baby – only later to be asked by that mother to adopt her baby. You can contribute to the family’s adoption fund here.
  • At Reproductive Research Audit, Dr. Jacqueline Harvey writes that after the failure of New York’s Reproductive Health Act, the Women’s Equality Act is the latest “back door” attempt to lift all restrictions on abortion in the state:

    This larger bill attempts to include the abortion aspects of the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) among nine other issues including domestic violence and equal pay for women. While the bill does not include the contraception aspects of RHA, it does contain, quite concisely the most contentious aspects of RHA that include late-term abortion on demand for virtually any reason and the legalization of non-physician abortions.

    Those that would seek to have abortion-on-demand and lower the standard of care for abortion have found a way, with fewer words, to achieve the same ends without the explicit changes that ultimately defeated RHA, namely by repealing aspects of abortion law.

    Does the state of New York believe women are not inherently equal to men without abortion?
