  • Pro-Life Action League says a recent 911 call from the Planned Parenthood in Aurora, Illinois, shows how little they truly “care, no matter what” about women’s safety. When the emergency operator asks for the patient’s condition, the PP staffer offers nothing – except instructions on where to park:

Pro-life vid of day: Marine vet holds pols accountable on life

by Hans Johnson

Shaun Adkins gained some notoriety at a townhall meeting where he held Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) feet to the fire on out-of-control government spending. In this video he reacts to West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s (D) veto of a bill that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks. 

After dividing pro-choice advocates between the ignorant and the knowingly malevolent, he calls on pro-life politicians to speak out in opposition:

Megan Huntsman, 4th trimester abortionist

Megan-Huntsman-Arrested-After-7-Dead-Babies-Found-In-Utah-Garage

News broke April 13 of a gruesome find in a Pleasant Grove, Utah, garage: the remains of a dead newborn infant stuffed inside a box.

The owner of the home, Darren West, called police, who found six more babies, also hidden inside boxes. Of the seven, one was apparently a stillbirth, but the rest were murdered after delivery.

West’s estranged wife, Megan Huntsman, readily admitted to killing her children. According to the AP:

Abortion providers upset that stigma keeps them from students

by Kelli

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 Louisiana 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.]

We are winning the war against abortion in America on all measurable fronts

facebook_1985578370

You may (or may not!) have noticed I’ve been out-of-pocket a few days. I was in Dublin, Ireland, where I was asked to speak at the National Convention for Life 2014 on April 12.

16668_606486482773510_604782369_nThe daylong event was more than sold out. Many came who hadn’t registered, and although there were dozens of chairs added, some of the 600 attendees still had to stand.

The life issue is huge in Ireland, which was abortion free until the tragic death in 2012 of Savita Halappanavar and her 17-wk-old baby, which abortion zealots exploited and lied about to push through a law legalizing abortion for medical emergencies and suicidal ideation last year.

In that light, NCFL organizers asked me to encourage our Irish counterparts by describing how we are winning the war against abortion in America. You can view my speech here, but I thought I’d post the statistics I showed – many compiled by abortion proponents – demonstrating that we are indeed prevailing in just about every measurable way.

Pro-life vid of day: Iconic 1987 pro-life exposé by NARAL founder

Bernard Nathansonby LauraLoo

Rerunning from a few years ago, Eclipse of Reason, produced in 1987 by the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson (pictured right), is a gruesome video that features a preborn baby boy being killed via dilation and evacuation (D&E).  His dismembered body parts are pulled out of his mother (warning: blood and female nudity), and are laid out for viewing to ensure nothing is left behind.

Every time I watch this video, I cry my heart out for this poor little boy.

D&E procedures are not as popular as they used to be. Our own Jill Stanek has commented that the preferred method of late-term abortion nowadays is the induced labor abortion procedure, a two or three day process that involves dilating the cervix to deliver the preterm baby. The baby is either killed beforehand by lethal injection or anticipated to die during or shortly after birth.

WARNING: Nudity, graphic content.

Actress Jennie Garth: “I love being pregnant”

Jennie Garthby Carder

I love being pregnant, and I love making babies. I loved getting fat!….

Just bringing a being into this world is crazy wild! It’s like an exchange you can’t compare to any other.

It’s like when ET connected with Elliot, you know, where they got sick when they were with each other and felt each other’s feelings.

Stephanie Green, a 39-year-old South Carolina mother, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing her six-week-old daughter with an overdose of morphine delivered through her breast milk.

Adoptive parents challenge Democrat over racial remarks

by Carder

Alvin HolmesI would like for him to ‘man up’….

He’s made the statement. He needs to put his money where his mouth is.

Alvin Holmes (pictured), a Democrat who said that “Republicans would support abortion if their daughters were impregnated by black men, and promised to give $100,000 to anyone who could prove that “a whole bunch of whites,” had adopted black children in the state of Alabama“, via the  Daily Caller, April 10

 Faces of Families in Alabama facebook page was launched in response to Alvin Holmes’ idiocy comments, in addition to a demonstration in Montgomery, Alabama

What the Media says »

by Kelli

buffettpritzkersThe American public overall is opposed to abortion on demand; whether they call themselves “pro-life” or “pro-choice,” a majority do not want abortion to be legal except in the “hard cases” (e.g. rape and incest), and of the remainder, most support limits on later-term abortions.

The problem is that low-income Americans lean pro-life while the well-off tend to support abortion.

For instance, in a January 2013 Gallup poll, 58% of those with an annual income of $75,000 or more identified as “pro-choice.” Among those who earned less than $30,000 a year, only 41% identified as “pro-choice” – a whopping 17-point gap.

This leads, unsurprisingly, to abortion groups having a fundraising advantage over right-to-life groups. Abortion groups also enjoy the patronage of billionaires like Warren Buffett [pictured top right] and Susan Pritzker [pictured bottom right with husband Nicholas]. And of course, they command a majority of a particularly elite group of nine.

But I don’t think the oligarchy report (or at least, the media’s reporting on it) captures the full picture….

Abortion levels in the United States are at record lows, pro-abortion think tanks are panicked by our progress at the state level, and just last week, the representatives of the people of Colorado rejected abortion-on-demand legislation.

So don’t let the oligarchy get you down. Wealthy elites are powerful, but they are not omnipotent. By banding together, we can win.

~ SecularProLife.org, discussing the idea that small group of elites, instead of a democratic body, exercises control over the general population, April 21
