Back from vacation…

I’ve done “blog light” the past 2-1/2 weeks, away from my desk quite a bit in lieu of family time – visiting  Andy and Daena in DC and camping (Starved Rock for Illinoisans) with the grandsons, Rich and my parents. If you’ve been wondering where I was, that’s where. Tomorrow I’ll be back. Thanks to Kelli, […]

Pro-life activists in the Sunshine State

I’ve been in Florida since March 1 (hence the lowered rate of posts – thanks to Kel, Carder, Jivin J, Susie, Hans, and LauraLoo for standing in the gap!).

I also got to connect with pro-life heroines Michele Herzog (below right) and Allura Lightfoot (below left) where they do sidewalk counseling several times a week at All Women’s Health Center abortion clinic in Altamonte Springs. I’ve written about Michele’s work a couple of times (here and here)…

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

~ Tara Culp-Ressler, ThinkProgress.org, April 14

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
