Screen Shot 2015-05-19 at 10.26.30 AMby Hans Johnson

As Obamacare is being implemented to a fuller extent, the fear of overcrowded ERs – especially in the bigger cities – is growing into reality. More stories of unpleasant experiences in child delivery are surfacing.

Matt Walsh to Cecile Richards: You don’t know compassion

by Kelli

StadiumBaltimore

Planned Parenthood, as you know, has always been repugnant, vile, abhorrent, cruel, destructive, racist, brutal, and murderous, but it used to be pretty upfront about it. Now you do the same things while hiding behind a thick wall of propaganda and deception.

It’s cowardly, ma’am. You are a coward. You all are.

And you clearly lack respect, to put it mildly.

2015 summer pro-life youth boot camps!

boot camp finalby Jill and Kelli

Following the tradition we started four years ago, we’re posting all the upcoming summer pro-life teen- and college-aged boot camps we found listed around the country. If we missed any, please let Kelli know.

As I’ve said before, if I had teens in the house  I’d not only send them to church camp every summer, I’d send them to at least one pro-life boot camp during their high school years. These provide a great opportunity to build strength and confidence in the sanctity of life and also launch lifelong pro-life friendships.

It’s great to see so many pro-life groups in so many states sponsoring these vital training programs for our young people.

alexinterviewby Kelli

The Blaze shares the story of a pro-choice man who gave an interview at Ottawa’s March for Life this past week – and seemed to very quickly regret it:

The man, identified only as Alex, later reportedly sent an email to [interviewer Marissa Semkiw] asking that none of his responses be used in any videos or broadcasts. Rebel Media declined his request.

Pro-lifers and the contraception compromise

contraceptionby Carder

… [I]t’s all right to have prayer rallies and demonstrations and even a big annual March — which gets absolutely zero coverage in the secular world — because the pro-life movement will never challenge contraception, which is the root of all this. It won’t challenge it because it would reveal the deep religious differences between many Catholics and many contraception-embracing protestants in the movement.

The quiet compromise in the movement that has taken place is: The lives of babies are more important than the larger truth. That is now the ironclad position of the pro-life movement, molded and shaped by a tenuous and false political ecumenism. And when that compromised position is brought to the table of the struggle with the united secular forces, a further compromise is exacted.

March and demonstrate all you want. We will just ignore you.

~ Catholic apologist Michael Voris, criticizing the pro-life movement’s internal compromise over contraception, Church Militant, May 15

“Immediatist vs. Incrementalist” debate analysis, Part VII: So fundraising is wrong?

Picture2

by Clinton Wilcox of Life Training Institute

On one hand, a favorite punching bag of T. Russell Hunter is pro-life fundraising.

11122396_916351231756876_1989993906_nOn the other, Hunter’s group Abolish Human Abortion is incorporated, has a for-profit arm through which it sells t-shirts and other wares, and rents office space (see screen shot right; click to enlarge).

It was these contradictory positions Hunter had to balance in his April 25 debate against Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s Gregg Cunningham.

Hunter contended (1:06:10 on the video) that one reason Christians aren’t actively involved in anti-abortion activism is because they donate money to pro-life organizations to do the work for them. (See also 1:14:24-1:16:26.)

Planned Parenthood’s abortion “storytelling” tactic borrowed from LGBT playbook

0b65cfe24d7f289d52564f44aa4ffc69

The strategy of abortion “storytelling” – a tactic borrowed from LGBT activists – is that a person who has had an abortion talks about it openly and positively in order to elicit the empathy of listeners who might then be persuaded that abortion is normal and a good thing for women….

[T]he architect of the storytelling initiative is a gay political activist named Dave Fleischer, who moved to California in 2009 following the passage of Proposition 8 with the plan of helping the militant gay rights movement get its agenda moving.

The practice of animal crushing is a sexual fetish of the sickest kind.

I followed my trainer to the lab where products of conception (P.O.C.) were inspected to make sure the doctor removed all the bits that, if left behind, could cause an infection. My trainer made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass baking pan. At 10 weeks and beyond, those appendages are formed and clearly recognizable.

It was all so heavy. The loneliness of those little arms and legs. That girl, so clearly suffering during the procedure. Before my job at the clinic, my stance on abortion had been so black and white. I had been firmly pro-choice for as long as I could remember. Was it possible that working here could change my mind?…

Abortion is fraught with so much negative sentiment, and in a sense, abortion is plucking a life from existence that has yet to have the opportunity to thrive. No one is claiming it’s pleasant. There is nothing black and white about abortion. It’s every shade of gray. But for us pro-choicers, the woman’s life trumps the embryo or fetus. That’s the bottom line. We place value on a woman’s ability to know what is best for her. It simply needs to be a safe and legal option. When I started at the clinic, all I saw was the individual moment of pain, but over the years I began to see a much richer portrait — women coming out the other side, relieved, even if it was simply a relief to have the procedure behind them. They could go back to their lives.

Seeing every side, the whole complicated and profound process, I came out more pro-choice than ever. I started to see it from a purely biological standpoint. We were removing an unwanted growth to preserve the woman’s chosen course.
