  • Pro-Life in TN wonders why the courts are allowing cases of pro-choice violence – like that of abortionist Gary Boyle, who was arrested in 2010 for brandishing a loaded gun at peaceful prayer vigil participants – to lie dormant for months or even years. Maybe the Justice Department is just too busy going after the leaflet-distributing sidewalk counselors.
  • Stand for Life summarizes 15 motivations of pro-lifers from Prof. Peter Kreeft’s book, Three Approaches To Abortion.

  • Wesley J. Smith notes the gradual acceptance of the idea that government should be involved in ensuring the “happiness” of the populace:

    Equality used to mean “of opportunity,” as in judge us all by the content of our character. These days, it seems to mean economic outcomes. Coming soon to a bloated bureaucracy near you, it will apparently be life satisfaction, with government policy expected to provide the joy. And if your neighbor is happier than you, will it be up to the government to even the score?

  • John Smeaton encourages participation in a pro-life outreach during the passing of the Olympic torch through various UK cities.
  • Real Choice outlines the horrific story of baby Rowan, who was born alive during an abortion but did not survive.
  • Priests for Life features The Radiance Foundation founder Ryan Bomberger’s response to the Trayvon Martin controversy.
  • Pro-Life Action League has news of a new IVF clinic being built in Naperville, IL. Pro-lifers plan to engage in peaceful protest against the clinic because of the procedure’s toll on human life at the earliest stages. PLAL’s opposition to the clinic, however, is being painted as a “religious objection” as opposed to a moral one:

    One could say a low-grade war on freedom of religion was being waged by many of the pro-IVF speakers at Naperville City Council last night.

    Many of them, including [fertility] Dr. [Randy] Morris, made it clear that they believed that everyone opposing the clinic was doing so for “religious reasons” and that religious reasons do not deserve a hearing in the public square.

    The funny thing is, nobody opposing the clinic stated religious reasons. At both last’s night’s meeting and the previous one, the stated reasons for opposition were zoning discrepancies and the value of human life—something we can all value regardless of religion.

Former abortion clinic escort arrested for “bumping” pro-lifer with car

UPDATE Feb 1 2013, 9:52am: Larry Carter Center had his court hearing yesterday. He came in with a four-foot cane and police “to protect him from 81 year old Bill.” He faked not being to hear well and when Bill came to the podium he backed almost to the wall of the courtroom acting afraid. No video of the incident was shown in court. He was given a $55 fine and time served (27 hours in jail post-arrest). This was in spite of his being told at the court hearing for his last assault, to not get in trouble outside that clinic again.

A former escort at a South Carolina abortion clinic decided to start the year off with a bang. Literally.

Larry Carter Center (mug shot right) is a former Green Party candidate for the S.C. House of Representatives and well-known socialist activist. He has also worked as a volunteer escort for the Charleston Women’s Medical Center abortion business.

On January 12, as Carter was driving his teal sedan out of the parking lot of the abortion business, he “bumped” 81-yr-old pro-lifer William Gasque in the knee with his front bumper.

Gasque filed a complaint with the police four days later. Local 40 Days for Life leaders shared that “the police seemed genuinely disturbed by what they saw on the video.”

Center was subsequently arrested and charged with “simple assault,” which carries a penalty of up to 30 days in prison. Below is video of the incident.

The manager of the abortion clinic tried vainly to distance it from the assault, telling reporters the clinic had had a restraining order against Center for about two years.

However, this is patently untrue. Nine months prior, video footage was taken of Center wearing a clinic escort vest issued by the business. The business must have realized they would be called on this lie because as of today that claim was scrubbed of this statement.

This wasn’t the first time Center has attempted to intimidate the peaceful pro-lifers who regularly pray and counsel outside the abortion business. On July 30, 2011, police were called and a report filed when Center began mowing around a group of Catholics praying the Rosary in front of the clinic, yelling and pushing the mower into the legs of two men. The mower was running, the blades were cutting the grass. Click here to view a portion of the incident that was captured on film. Note that the available footage does not show Center bumping into the two men.

Oh. And here Center is in May 2012 attempting to wrap his tri-fold sign around another pro-lifer outside the same abortion business.

gary-boyleBut wait, there’s more. The Charleston Women’s Medical Center is the same one where, in October 2010 resident abortionist Gary Boyle (mug shot left) pulled a gun on pro-lifers witnessing outside. According to LifeNews:

Boyle drove his silver Lexus vehicle into the parking lot and he allegedly approached the pro-life advocates, including a 17-year-old boy, and produced a black handgun loaded with 15 rounds…. Police arrested Boyle and charged him with pointing a firearm.

Following his arrest, Boyle was promptly released on a $25,000 bond. In June 2012 it was reported Boyle would receive a fine of $100 and did not have to show up in court.

Can you imagine the furor had the incident been reversed? The outcry from the media and the pro-abortion lobby if a pro-lifer had struck a clinic escort with his car? It is time that acts of “pro-choice” violence against peaceful advocates against abortion were taken seriously – by the courts, politicians, and the media.

  • Real Choice points out the strange pro-choice phenomenon which ignores women’s deaths due to abortion quackery and instead expresses outrage over slain abortionists.

  • Mommy Life shares photos and the wonderful story of a recent visit from the birth family of their son Justin, who was born in the U.S. while his Taiwanese parents were here on student visa. Justin’s birth parents made the sacrificial and loving decision to make an open adoption plan for their son, who has Down syndrome, so he could stay in the United States, where he could receive the best health treatment and education.
  • Secular Pro-Life continues to encounter opposition from other secularists and atheists, who believe the group is “secretly religious.” SPL points out that according to Gallup, “1 out of every 5 [or 19% of] non-religious people considers themselves pro-life.”
  • John Smeaton responds to the claims from Save the Children that “family planning saves children’s lives”:

    The report relies heavily upon claims by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the Population Reference Bureau, the Guttmacher Institute and the Population Council, as well as officials in the relevant sections of WHO, UNICEF and DFID. But these people are basically one group: the abortion-contraception lobby.

  • ProWomanProLife links to some commentary on the “war on women” and notices several euphemisms for abortion in a recent Planned Parenthood Action Fund graphic. How many can you find?
  • Pro-Life in TN reports that word South Carolina and Tennessee abortionist Gary Boyle will no longer face felony charges for brandishing a loaded gun at prayer vigil participants in 2010. He will now only pay a $100 fine.
  • Stand for Life agrees with a Pro-Life in NJ post pointing out why pro-lifers should not use the “potential for good” argument against abortion.
  • Wesley J. Smith lambasts the Australian government for awarding eugenicist Peter Singer with the country’s highest civic award:

    A Peter Singer world would be profoundly immoral. It would be a society in which babies that did not suit the interests of their parents could be killed. It would be an era in which the most vulnerable human beings — living fetuses, unwanted infants, people with profound cognitive impairments — could be used in medical experiments of the kind decried by the Nuremberg Code and/or be subjected to death by organ harvesting. It would be a world in which universal human rights would have been discarded and replaced by a society in which our rights were subject to revocation based on our quality of life. And yet, despite these and other awful consequences, he’s the most celebrated bioethicist and moral philosopher of our times.

Here’s the hard truth: The problem isn’t Singer. The real source of the moral collapse comes because too many of us are unwilling or unable to defend the intrinsic dignity and importance of human life.

What’s to hide? Troubled abortionist owns mill where threatened pro-lifers with gun

I wrote last week about the arrest of abortionist Gary Boyle for brandishing a gun at pro-lifers at a Charleston, SC, abortion mill.

News reports indicated it was uncertain why Boyle was at the mill and whether he planned to abort there that day.

But Tennessee Right to Life wrote today in an email alert that Boyle actually owns that mill.

Indeed all 3 mills listed in TNRTL’s statement as belonging to Boyle are nearly identically named, and all 3 websites are laid out identically. I don’t understand why this wasn’t made clear to police. Was Boyle trying to hide his connection? From TNRTL:

Abortionist arrested for brandishing gun at pro-lifers

As an aside, apart from the “anti-abortion” part, the Post and Courier provided a fair and balanced intro to this October 3 story:

Charleston – For the past 11 days, anti-abortion demonstrators have gathered at the Charleston Women’s Medical Center… as part of the annual “40 Days for Life” movement against abortion, each of them signing a “statement of peace” before participating.

Police say the protest met a threat Saturday morning when an out-of-state abortion doctor flashed a gun at them.
