Latest abortion play: Underage DIY abortion for “ticking time bomb”

Amy and Ester, the Florida high school students at the center of “Dry Land,” have a time-sensitive problem to solve: Amy’s unwanted pregnancy. Unlike the women recently played by Jenny Slate in the indie film “Obvious Child” and by Julia Stiles in the Off Broadway romance “Phoenix,” Amy isn’t an adult, so her mother would […]

Pro-life news brief 8-28-14

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • A newborn baby boy in Utah is in critical condition after his mother abandoned him in a trash can and was found by neighbors who thought they were hearing a kitten:

    Police say the 24-year-old mother later returned to the scene and told officers that she’d left the baby there about an hour before he was found.

  • Time has a piece by Laura Stampler attempting to promote abortion advocates and their lame Taco or Beer challenge. The piece is entitled “New Viral Fundraiser,” despite only having 127 posts (at this moment) on Tumblr.

(Not so) pro-life vid of day: Baby can be killed until cord cut

by Hans Johnson As the summer winds down for those in Created Equal’s Justice Riders, they will be returning to school with a great deal of experience debating pro-choicers. Here is a noble effort by Director of Training Seth Drayer, trying to convince a woman that we must at the very least consider mother and […]

Feminist thinks “The Giver” is a slam to pro-lifers

The-Giver-Movieby Kelli

On one hand, the depiction of “release to elsewhere” – especially of one of the unqualified babies, who is given a lethal injection and then dropped down a chute — could surely be used as grist for organizations who are deemed pro-life. (Especially given that in real life, abortion foes often use jarring images of fetuses to further their claim that abortion is murder, despite the fact that such images misrepresent the reality of abortion.)

On the other hand, the suggestion that birth control and family planning are necessary in a world of limited resources are in keeping with pro-choice sentiments. Further, the focus on “unqualified” babies who are at least several months old – not on embryos, fetuses, or zygotes (what those on the “pro-life” side often call “life”) – indicates that this “release” is NOT the same thing as abortion. (Thus, the story is much different from the one told by the likes of Rand Paul — the horror at ending a life is not focused on the contents of a pregnant woman’s uterus, but on a functioning, breathing, fully formed human baby.)

Star gets testy when “Obvious Child” billed as “abortion rom-com”

Jenny Slate in the abortion rom-com Obvious Child

As commenter Christina noted on Facebook (a line I stole on Twitter), “Let’s make abortion the central theme of a comedy, then pretend we’re not trivializing it and trying to make it funny.”

But that’s exactly what the star of a romantic comedy about abortion is trying to say.

More and more parents opting for gender reveal parties

by Carder It’s not all about that private 20-week ultrasound anymore! More and more parents are planning gender reveal parties to find out their baby’s sex and share the excitement with family and friends through a big reveal, usually in cake form. So how is it done? Most moms and dads have their ultrasound technician […]

Pro-life blog buzz 8-26-14

  • At First Things, J.D. Flynn pens a beautiful response to noted atheist Richard Dawkins’ controversial Tweet about the “immorality” of allowing children with Down syndrome to be born. As an adoptive father of two children with Down syndrome, Flynn’s post is a must read:

    You’ve often said that people who disagree with you should “go away, and learn how to think.” I’ve tried to learn to think, over the years, but perhaps I am naive in some ways. But one of things I’ve concluded is that ethical philosophy can’t be done in a sterile environment — that our humanity, our intuition, our empathy, in fact, must be recognized as a source of ethical insight if we want to think well. Perhaps you believe that your position on abortion and down syndrome is logically valid. But I wonder if you’re kept awake at night by the revulsion that comes with being the champion of killing.

Pro-life vids of day: Reproductive justice… or Black genocide?

by Hans Johnson

The poster image to the right ironically accompanies a Facebook post by Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, which she used to inject her pro-abortion agenda into the controversy of the recent shooting death of a black youth by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri:

Heartbroken by the event unfolding in #Ferguson. A parent’s right to raise their child in love and safety, and to dream that their child will have every opportunity in the world to grow into a fiercely independent adult is a fundamental issue of reproductive justice.

But where is the justice for the preborn in the Black community? As noted by Ryan Bomberger in his Townhall column, more Black babies are aborted than are born alive in New York City, and Planned Parenthood plays no small part. According to Protecting Black Life, “79% of [Planned Parenthood’s] surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.”

Shane Q Genesis, a rap artist from Malawi, sees something sinister at work in this promotion of abortion in the inner cities:
