Thoughts on National Right to Life severing ties with GA Right to Life

imageOn March 29 the National Right to Life Committee announced it was disaffiliating Georgia Right to Life.

In the same statement NRLC announced it was credentialing a new state pro-life organization, Georgia Life Alliance.

Read NRLC’s press release here, but its rationale for severing ties with GRTL boiled down to insubordination: GRTL had publicly attempted to thwart two pieces of NRLC’s “top-priority federation legislation,” the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act last year, and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act this year.

In its statement, NRLC subtly responded to GRTL’s reason for defying its parent organization, which was that GRTL opposed the rape/incest exceptions in the aforementioned bills:

Colorado Planned Parenthood blames personhood initiatives for two clinic closures

roe-and-colorado-blogWell, God works in mysterious ways.

Poor planning by Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, ironically due to two successful attempts to preserve its bottom line, has resulted in overextending itself to the point it has to close two of its 23 clinics. At least that’s PPRM’s claim. From the Colorado Springs Independent, August 14:

It’s been widely reported that in 2008 and 2010, opponents of personhood greatly outspent supporters.

And they won easily. In 2008, Amendment 48 failed 73.2% to 26.8%. In 2010, Amendment 62 failed 70.53% to 29.47%.

But the victories have come at a cost, particularly to Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, which is gearing up for another fight should Brady backers get enough signatures by early September to qualify for the ballot. PPRM spokesperson Monica McCafferty notes that her organization led the funding in both campaigns, which together cost about $3 million.

Pro-life leader’s home vandalized in wake of Newsweek article

Warning: Vulgarity ahead.

I wrote last week that a Newsweek article favorable to the personhood movement and personhood leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason had “riled abortion proponents.” Little did I know how much.

Newsweek article on Personhood movement riles abortion proponents

A June 25 article in Newsweek about the Personhood movement is shaking up the pro-abortion community. Just read a sampling of the 315 comments and counting that have poured in since it was crossposted on The Daily Beast since yesterday.

Warning to pregnant pro-choicers: Stop treating fetuses like people

But if you really want to out-pregnant all the rest, the Daily has your trend: Pregnant woman are Photoshopping sonograms onto their naked stomach glamour-shots. (Picture Demi Moore’s famous and oft-repeated Vanity Fair cover pose. Now picture Demi’s smooth and tanned belly with a fetus on it.)…

Canadian MP: If we declared fetuses “human beings,” abortion would be homicide

If the legal definition of when one becomes a human being were to be adjusted so that a fetus is declared to be a legal person at some earlier stage of gestation, then the homicide laws would apply. As a necessary consequence, aborting fetal development anywhere in the potentially new adjusted period would be considered […]

New animated video shows personhood’s link to Native Americans, slaves, disabled, and preborn

This compelling new video just released by ProLifeWisconsin includes shocking statements about “savages,” the “manifestly unfit,” and the “benefit” of slavery to the “Negro,” all made by ignorant U.S. Supreme Courts past. Someday the ignorance of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court, which legalized the slaughter of 55 million preborn children and counting, will also be […]

The Embryonic Jesus Story

Merry blessed Christmas, everyone! Am reposting my WND Christmas column from 2004, The Embryonic Jesus Story… At this time of year, we focus on Christ’s birth, but there is a fascinating incident the Bible describes near the beginning of Jesus’ human life, several months prior. It is the Embryonic Jesus Story. Luke 1 tells about […]

Taking misleading media to task on personhood

In 1989, the Supreme Court ruled… that language alone cannot be used to justify the regulation of abortion. In other words, calling unborn human beings “persons” under the law does nothing to prevent the legal abortion of these “persons.” … If Roe were overturned, it would not have the effect of making abortion illegal. It […]

She loves being pregnant right now and I f–king hate it….

I’m not a fan of pregnancy right now with my thighs touching and my boobs changing but I know it will be worth it and hopefully I get back to that really quickly.
