  • Big Blue Wave discusses a Finnish study on reducing suicide risk following abortion. While most in the pro-choice camp deny there is any link at all to an increased risk of suicide, this study recommends a mental health checkup two to three weeks following an abortion. However, the study also noted that while this intervention may have been beneficial, the rate of reduction was not statistically significant.
  • The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform wonders if parents who object to the display of abortion victim images also direct their anger at the graphic sexual displays adorning storefront windows, the graphic sex ed curricula taught in schools, the prevalence of horror movies or the presence of porn shops:

    I’ve come to ask the question, “Are you truly trying to protect your children’s innocence? Or are you just trying to protect yourselves from the truth?”


  • Bound4Life announces the “first-ever collaboration of leading evangelical pro-life groups, the world’s largest pro-life event — the annual March for Life in Washington, DC — will feature a non-denominational prayer and worship gathering called OneVoiceDC as a central element of the two-day event on January 21-22, 2015.” Please register online for this event.
  • At Ethika Politika, Laurie DeRose examines the claim that greater female empowerment results in fewer children.
  • The FRC Blog points out says that by anyone’s count, pro-lifers are winning:

    According to the Guttmacher Institute (ironically, once the research arm of the country’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood), “In 2013 alone, 22 states enacted 70 antiabortion measures, including pre-viability abortion bans, unwarranted doctor and clinic regulations, limits on the provision of medication abortion and bans on insurance coverage of abortion. However, 2013 was not even the year with the greatest number of new state-level abortion restrictions, as 2011 saw 92 enacted; 43 abortion restrictions were enacted by states in 2012.” Guttmacher also notes that by mid-2014, “13 states (had) adopted 21 new restrictions that could limit access to abortion.”

The implications of these new laws and regulations are profound: As noted by Catholic Family Association president Austin Ruse, “How effective have some of these state legislative efforts been? A few years ago, Texas had 40 abortion clinics. Now, it has less than ten and counting.” Put another way, thousands of unborn children in the Lone Star state will be welcomed into life and their mothers defended against the abortion industry’s exploitation.

  • The Guiding Star Project shares a great story about the impact pro-life medical professionals can make in the lives of their patients. Seeing pregnancy as a blessing and not a burden makes a huge difference when encouraging mothers.
  • Clinic Quotes posts a brief video of abortionist Randall Whitney speaking with pro-lifers. Whitney accuses one pro-life protestor – who brought her child with her – of being a bad mother, even going to far as to say to the child, “Ask your mom to take you home. She’s a bad mother.” He also claims a preborn child isn’t a baby until it is “separate from its host,” (or to use the more common and accurate term – “mother”) and admits preborn children have heartbeats at 3 weeks, but says, “So what?… It’s human tissue.”Warning – mild profanity:
