Pro-life vid of day: PP prez compares abortion to colonoscopy

bill_moyers2by Hans Johnson

Bill Moyers (pictured right), former press secretary for President Lyndon Johnson and long-time PBS host, interviewed Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards regarding the recent Supreme Court decision to strike down a Massachusetts law mandating a 35-foot buffer zone for protesters at abortion clinics.

Perhaps the lowlight of the discussion resulted from the pro-choice insistence of hiding abortion behind any and all health issues. Richards said:

… [I]t is the right of women in this country to be able to access healthcare that they need without harassment and without the advice of dozens of people outside their health center. I mean, can you imagine if, you know, if men in this country, before going into their doctor had to walk through a gauntlet of protesters telling them, you know, whether it’s not to get a colonoscopy or just go down the list? It’s incredible.

How offensive. Not only has Ms. Richards deceived the public about Planned Parenthood’s cancer-screening methods, she now also equates opposition to the taking of lives through abortion to the opposition of procedures that save lives.

I survived the sexual revolution, which is why I fight to end it

womensissuesby Kelli

Forty years later, having won most of their early battles, the current “women’s issue” crowd now maintains there’s a war on us that won’t end until we can obtain contraception and abortion without so much as a co-payment even for women who can afford an education at Georgetown, and it must be paid for even by people who have always maintained conscientious objection.

Meanwhile, many of us have refused to assimilate, though we rarely hold press conferences about it. Bearing the wounds of the sexual revolution, we think, for our daughters’ sakes, there’s still room for discussion. Abortion and contraception (free at last, or mostly) aren’t the best we have to offer our girls….

We think the abortion-contraception damsel in distress dirge is unworthy of us, and quite disingenuous coming from women perfectly able to pay.

Our “women’s issue” sisters may be admirable for their tenacity in defining the debate, but they do not define us. We take issue with their version of “women’s issues” and we can speak for ourselves.

San Francisco afraid to enforce buffer zone ordinance; Planned Parenthood ticked

Planned Parenthood abortion clinic angry San Francisco won't enforce buffer zone law against pro-life activists

In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s June 26 decision striking down Massachusetts’ 35-foot buffer zone law, the City of San Francisco has become squishy about enforcing its buffer zone ordinance, ticking off Planned Parenthood in the process.

San Francisco’s ordinance, which bans abortion opponents from entering a 25-foot line of demarcation around abortion clinics, is “virtually identical” to Massachusetts’ now voided law, minus 10 feet.

Now, San Francisco pro-life activists are allegedly feeling their oats and defying the ordinance by crossing the line.

Founded in 2009 by longtime pro-life activists Tom Herring and Andrew St.Hilaire (pictured below), Anti-Choice Project’s goal is to “educate Americans about the horror of abortion… through the public display of babies aborted during the 1st trimester of pregnancy.”

by Hans Johnson

Charles Reilly, a former art teacher, sports coach, and borough councilman, was sentenced to a total of 15 years in prison for inappropriate talks with 17 male Pine Hill Middle School students – even asking them to bring in semen-stained tissues for an “art project.”  He had pleaded guilty to charges including official misconduct and child endangerment.

Parents in the suburb of Camden, New Jersey, reacted at the time of the indictments here on Fox29 in Philadelphia:

PhD explains why she doesn’t use contraception

birth-control-pills-3by Carder

Imagine how pious I felt when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services demanded that employers pay for employees’ contraception, and the media clued me in to the fact that I was part of an elite squad. The 2 percent. The Catholic Mom Marine Corps. The Barefoot and Pregnant Dream Team.

Now that everyone is talking about contraceptives, I get lots of chances to out myself as a Catholic freak. Many people are quite amazed to meet a pants-wearing, educated woman who actually favors the contraceptive-free life. I get lots of amusing questions.

And it’s National NFP Awareness Week, so an opportune time to talk about chemical-free contraception.

Stanek Sunday Word: “Desire God’s pure word as newborn babies desire milk”

milkYou have been born again, not from a seed that can be destroyed, but through God’s everlasting word that can’t be destroyed. That’s why Scripture says, “All people are like grass, and all their beauty is like a flower of the field. The grass dries up and the flower drops off, but the word of the Lord lasts forever.” This word is the Good News that was told to you.

So get rid of every kind of evil, every kind of deception, hypocrisy, jealousy, and every kind of slander. Desire God’s pure word as newborn babies desire milk. Then you will grow in your salvation. Certainly you have tasted that the Lord is good!

~ I Peter 1:23- 2:3, God’s Word translation

Pro-life photo of the week: Abortion clinic bricks

Today’s photo of the week is by… me!

I snapped the shot on a whim as I was reading one night last week and was a bit surprised at the interest it garnered on Twitter and Facebook after I posted it on Instagram.

The photo is a side shot my nightstand, on which I have three bricks from three different closed abortion clinics that I use as a pen holder.

The bricks serve as an encouragement as to what we have accomplished, but they also hurt my soul to its core when I meditate on what went on inside the walls they held together.
