A comparison of rapist Ariel Castro and liberalism

Ariel Castro got these women pregnant and would beat them causing them to miscarry. Kinda like how liberals beat off businesses until they have to abort their dreams. So no, I don’t like the liberal idea or Obama’s idea of healthcare. But liberals think we’re just supposed to enjoy their ideas. And in their twisted […]

Forced miscarriage victim mourns loss; denies abortion similarities

In my opinion, this is not an abortion issue…. [Remee Lee] was poisoned. Her life was put in jeopardy. My life was put in jeopardy. This man took something from me. He killed a life growing inside me that had a heartbeat. This is not abortion. This is murder. ~ Caylinn Young of Oklahoma (pictured […]

Cleveland kidnapper may face death penalty for forced miscarriages

We need two separate poll questions asked of the public. Hopefully Rasmussen or Gallup or Pew or someone is game. Question one: Does Ariel Castro deserve death? Question two: Does Ariel Castro deserve death for forcing one of his captives to miscarry? I wonder if the number who say yes to question one will be […]

Trash talk: Abortion proponents say Karen Santorum didn’t lose a baby, she had an abortion

Jezebel confuses an attempt to undergo surgery to save the life of her child with procedures a woman undergoes a to end the life of her child.

Turn of tide? Humanity of Jubilee Duggar not up for debate

The [blog] debate that all of these people were having was whether or not the Duggars had disrespected their child by showing pictures of her deceased body at the funeral.

Occupy protestor miscarries after being at the wrong place at the wrong time

I was standing in the middle of the crowd when the police started moving in. I was screaming, “I am pregnant, I am pregnant. Let me through. I am trying to get out.” …Right before I turned, both cops lifted their pepper spray and sprayed me. My eyes puffed up and my eyes swelled shut. […]

Abortion proponent likens miscarriage to unplanned pregnancy

I believe any woman who has experienced a missed miscarriage can understand the panic that fills you, knowing that there is something inside of you that you have no ability to remove or end yourself. That for as long as it takes to arrange appointments, see doctors, schedule surgery, it is sitting inside you, a […]

Couple risks miscarriage while taking votes whether to abort; also generates a profit

Read backstory here. The mother taking votes whether to abort her 17-wk-old baby, Alisha Arnold, appeared on KSTP ABC News out of Minneapolis on November 18. The news video was ok, but I found the uncut interview (below) more enlightening – and troubling. It appears the Arnolds’ entire impetus for pulling this stunt was to […]

The grief liberal feminists cruelly forbid

Over at GoodMenProject.com, blogger Lu Fong opened up a conversation about my blog post, “Aborting father confronts pro-life protesters.” Commenter Shelley responded with what I consider one of the cruelest liberal feminist myths, “[C]hoosing to have an abortion does not cause adverse mental health issues.” To which I responded, “How awful of you to deny […]

One mother’s miscarriage, a pro-abort’s joke

Mourning has broken

From “Caskets for miscarried babies,” disgusted even me, and I have a high tolerance for ignorance.

I asked commenter and miscarriage […]

Naming France’s fetuses

AFP reports the French Supreme Court has ruled that parents have the right to name their miscarried or stillborn baby no matter what gestational age.

Smith was sent to a Boulder, Colorado, clinic run by Dr. Warren Hern [pictured], one of only four late-term abortion providers in the U.S.

Smith had only days to arrange for the procedure, which would cost $25,000 — money she had to borrow from family members. She says that she and her husband had to wade through protesters and cameras to get into the Colorado clinic, “which seemed like an army bunker,” and where, for security reasons, she could only have one book and one food item. But, Smith says, “contrary to what many might think, it was a peaceful procedure,” which, she explains, began with an injection that stopped her daughter’s heart, although not right away. Hours had passed since the injection, and Smith thought Alice had died. “But then I felt a kick,” Smith recounts through tears.

After she knew that Alice had passed — she says her belly was no longer tight and high, but rather heavy and sagging — Smith was overcome with a feeling of grace. Two days later, after being induced at the Boulder clinic, she gave birth to Alice, who was five pounds 13 ounces. “They cleaned her off and brought her into me,” says Smith, who shows me Alice’s tiny footprints and handprints.

Smith, who suffers post-traumatic stress disorder related to the loss, attends two support groups (an infant loss group and an abortion support group) and serves as a mentor to other women who have gone through late-term abortions for similar reasons. She says that she wishes there were more options for women in her circumstances, lamenting the death of [abortionist George] Tiller and lauding the courage of Hern, who she describes as “an absolute angel who saved me and my daughter.”
