Sunday Word: “Lust gets pregnant and has a baby: sin!”

temptation

The temptation to give in to evil comes from us and only us. We have no one to blame but the leering, seducing flare-up of our own lust. Lust gets pregnant, and has a baby: sin! Sin grows up to adulthood, and becomes a real killer.

Abortion’s new underground railroad

texas-rural-road-300x168According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 2009 the median cost of a first-trimester abortion was just under $500. Add the bus travel or gas and up to three nights in a hotel, and the cost can jump by several hundred dollars.

That’s the impetus behind Clinic Action Support Network, which was founded last summer in response to the new law, and aims to help Houston-area women clear the growing hurdles to abortion access.

But regulations and requirements like those in HB2 are not limited to Texas. Twenty-seven states have passed abortion regulations….

The trend has given rise to networks like CASN nationwide that help close the gap between the legal right to an abortion and the ability to get one. The New Mexico Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, for example, puts up women in a supportive hotel that charges the organization $49.99 a night for a room.

Stanek weekend question: What flavor ice cream would Planned Parenthood be?

Pro-life blog buzz 7-18-14

pro-lifeby Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

  • The Catholic View for Women says “CNN is reporting that, according to a study published in the journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) or progesterone-releasing IUD, may be associated with a higher than expected incidence of breast cancer.” The jury still appears to be out on this one, but CVW wonders if women will be given this information of potential risk:

    What caught my eye, though, is that levonorgestrel, a hormone that regulates ovulation, is also the used in the Plan B contraceptive, better known as the morning after pill. Millions of American women are now going to receive the IUD and Plan B free, thanks to Obamacare, and most of them will have no idea they could be increasing their risk of breast cancer.

    Is it possible that most women are unaware of the health risks associated with hormonal contraception in general?

Pro-life vid of day: Hannity interviews Created Equal

by Hans Johnson

After the verbal and physical attack by a woman in downtown Columbus, Ohio, Created Equal’s Mark Harrington and Seth Drayer have extended  forgiveness to her, and hope she will show some remorse and contrition for the incident.

The scattershot accusations of misogyny and racism hurled at “white male” intern Ian understandably puzzle Sean Hannity in this interview. The only actual argument the attacker had  between expletives was, “No uterus, no right to talk about it!” Is this the best they’ve got?

Poet for life speaks against the new “civil war”

shawn welcomeby Carder

All in the name of freedom. Party like a rock-star while little ones are dying. Silent screams from injected saline and dreams you will never hear because little lungs were punctured before they could fully function. Who will be a voice for the voiceless?…

How many freight trains of injustice will roll by behind church buildings while service inside sings louder? Hands in the air, pump up the volume… drowning out the rumblings of oppression.

No formal funerals, miniature caskets, only the likes of medical waste to manage. Tell me, how many pounds of flesh do you pick up for profit?…

… And when will that ‘waste’ begin to weigh down on your conscience?

~ Performance poet Shawn Welcome in his YouTube video “The New Civil War: Abortion!” , as reported by pro-life activist Alveda King, Newsmax, July 16

Unbelievable video: Jackson, MS, police stand by as vandals steal pro-life signs

Mike Peters steals signs from Created Equal, a pro-life organizationThis is UNBELIEVABLE. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it.

Yesterday, police in Jackson, Mississippi, stood idly by as vandals systematically stole signs right in front of them that had been erected by pro-life group Created Equal.

As the following video shows, police first acknowledged Created Equal had the constitutional right to hold a protest on a public sidewalk in Jackson, as corroborated by their city attorney.

The protest was held both in front of and across the street from Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only abortion clinic remaining in Mississippi.

Incredibly, the owner of one of the businesses in front of which Created Equal had erected its display began taking signs with the help of two accomplices – while the police stood by and watched!

House Democrats fail to attach hostile amendments to pro-life riders

Pro-choice abortion amendment to pro-life riderPro-life politicos were pleasantly surprised yesterday when House Democrats failed to attach hostile amendments to two pro-life riders that were part of the Financial Services Appropriations bill, which passed 228-195.

During committee debate, House Pro-Choice Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Louise Slaughter expressed her disdain for both the Harris Amendment, which ensures Multi-State Plans under Obamacare do not cover elective abortions, and the DC Hyde Amendment, which blocks federal funding for most abortions. So did the White House in a statement, and District of Columbia Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton squawked about DC Hyde during the Rule debate.

Even had they not publicly griped, Democrats as a matter of course add hostile amendments to these annual pro-life riders, even if it’s obvious they’ll lose. (The amendments, if passed, would gut the riders.) They like to showboat.

But yesterday the hostile amendments never materialized. Why?

Pro-life daily vid: Megyn Kelly refutes NOW’s contraception lies

by Hans Johnson and Kelli

FOX’s Megyn Kelly recently took on Patricia Ireland, the former president of NOW (where is the current president, by the way?), regarding the organization’s decision to place the Little Sisters of the Poor on their “Dirty 100″ list. What “dirty” deed are they accused of doing? Opposing Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

YouTube Preview Image

You’ll note that from 3:20 to 4:35, Megyn discusses the abortifacient properties of the IUD and the other contraceptives in question in the Hobby Lobby case. Ms. Ireland tells Megyn that she is wrong and needs to “do a little research”. Apparently, Megyn did – and it confirmed exactly what Megyn said. Be sure to note, in particular, 1:16-3:22:

NYC abortion clinic: We “release” late periods, end “invisible” pregnancies

g-sac-7-weeks-300x194by Kelli

SofTouch® is the safest, most noninvasive method. The doctor simply inserts a soft flexible tube through the natural opening of your cervix, and applies gentle pressure. This quietly “releases” your late period and induces a miscarriage. Because it is a natural release there is immediate recovery and you can rest assured that when you are ready, you can become pregnant again….

Let go of your worries, and let us care for you. You will leave feeling supported and confident that you can get pregnant when the time is right….

Ending early pregnancy doesn’t need to be any more complicated than getting your yearly pap test.

You have an early pregnancy if you have only missed one or two periods. At this stage, it’s more like having a miscarriage. It’s comforting to know that you’re ending the pregnancy before you would even know if it may be viable. An early pregnancy consists of tissue similar to your menstrual tissue and a “bubble” of fluid, called the gestational sac. The pregnancy itself is invisible.

abortionposterby Kelli

Abortion is a normal thing that women do, and we should stop asking women to sit in silence when the topic comes up….

I don’t feel very brave when I talk about my abortion. I feel small and scared.

But I don’t like staying silent out of fear. I don’t think that’s how anyone has ever gone about winning civil rights. And we have a lot of work to do.

So let’s talk about our abortions. Everyone who is able to, everyone who is ready–let’s speak out. Let’s treat them the way we’d treat, say, a root canal.

Our health care system walls reproductive care off into its own domain: treating birth control differently than other prescriptions, insisting that women obtain abortion care at special clinics rather than undergoing this simple outpatient surgery at the gynecologist’s office.

Let’s push back by treating it like it’s just another extremely common medical procedure.

And whether or not we disclose our abortions, whether or not we’ve even had them, let’s talk as though having an abortion is a perfectly okay option to consider when you’re very unhappy about being pregnant. Let’s act like women have a choice.

Let’s tell our friends that there is nothing wrong with ending an unwanted, life-disrupting, economically catastrophic pregnancy, and let’s listen to what they say and support them in whatever decisions they make….

Let’s get to the point where telling abortion stories at a party is just as common as telling birth stories. As long as we stay silent, it’s a right that can be taken away from us.
