Thanks for the (blog) memories

“Who’s Jill Stanek?” Carder and Jill

That’s the question I asked myself one day as I surfed the web for pro-life news and the name Jill Stanek kept popping up. Fascinated by the rowdy debates, I knew I had found my pro-life online hangout.

This was back in 2007. Thanks to Jill, I learned about Obama before Obama became Dear Leader Obama. The connections I’ve made with committed pro-lifers, and for that matter, committed pro-choicers, remain a great memory.

Like the night MK, Carla, Hal, Jasper, Doug, and a few others had an all night thread/party that ended the following morning, with pictures of mayhem and ridiculousness rounding out an incredible bonding experience for all involved. Hal just couldn’t stop chugging those mojitos…

Bristol Palin announces pregnancy

palinby Carder

I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you.

But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.

My little family always has, and always will come first.

Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.

Pro-life vid of the day: Facing the truth about abortion

A parting note from Hans:

I have always been pro-life. At least since I learned where babies come from, whenever that was. I believe I heard of Jill’s moving experience as a nurse cradling a baby left to die even before her appearance with Bill O’Reilly. I eventually stumbled upon this blog and sparred with other commenters and, I’d like to think, made friends, especially with xalisae and Deluded Lib Pro-Lifer (thanks for making me write that).

I was surprised and honored three years ago to be asked to help out with the Pro-life Videos of the Day. I thank Kelli for coaching me through the process of posting, and for being such a terrific editor. I certainly needed one. I also thank LauraLoo for her input and support, and most especially Jill. I know she will continue to have a great impact on the pro-life movement in her new leading role.

I will continue to do my little part as well. Thanks to you all.

Your friend in the Fight for Life,

Hans

Abortion pushers on clinic violence: “Destroying persons” wrong

maggiemoranNARALby Kelli

As Cahill stated in her victim impact statement, “Destroying persons, places, property because of a difference in belief is called TERRORISM… Zachary [Klundt] systematically destroyed my property, my profession, my plans for the future and, I feel quite sure he would have destroyed me if I had happened to show up at my office when he was in it. The feeling of hate in my destroyed office was palpable.” We cannot turn a blind eye to the real terrors experienced by [abortion] providers like Susan Cahill.

Even without anti-choice laws in place in Montana limiting abortion, we are seeing access decrease around the state. Of all the compounding factors limiting abortion access (and there are many), the loss of a clinic to violence is surely the most difficult to bear.

… For over a year, more than 400 Flathead Valley residents have been without their primary healthcare provider. That, in and of itself, is a horrible circumstance which Klundt created when he destroyed the clinic. But even beyond Susan, beyond her patients, beyond Kalispell or even Montana, this destruction has an insidious effect on abortion access because it creates a climate of fear in the medical community.

[W]e need to push back against this climate of fear and create safe spaces for medical professionals to talk about abortion access, it’s legitimacy in the medical field, how we can support abortion providers, and how we can ultimately increase access to this necessary, and legal, medical procedure.

It’s summer, so what better time to make a sandcastle? Well, you’ll feel quite inadequate at this activity if you attend the Hampton Beach Sand Sculpture Competition. In the midst of the short rocky shoreline of New Hampshire is this very short stretch of beach, attracting artists from around the world.

This year’s winner was Karen Fralich of Ontario, Canada, with the sculpture “Life”, in honor of a friend who became a father.

Fiorina ready to take on the Left over abortion

Womens Conferenceby Carder

I am pro-life by virtue of faith and experience and now science. And I am tired of being scared away from this topic by leftist women.

And I think they try to scare us away from this topic… it’s hard to argue that abortion for any reason at all after five months is okay when we have been conducting in utero surgery on unborn children as young as four months for a very long time.

… And so I think we need to just keep pressing this topic and not be afraid to bring it up because the left really wants to shut this conversation down.

My new role at Susan B. Anthony List

SBA-20_logoDear faithful readers of JillStanek.com:

First, the exciting news: I am honored to have accepted a position at Susan B. Anthony List as its National Campaign Chair! Read more at WorldNetDaily.com. Also read SBA’s press release and a a blurb in Politico’s Pulse.

I have been a long-time admirer of Marjorie Dannenfelser and the SBA List team, many of whom are friends. I partnered with the group during the 2012 election cycle for a bus tour exposing Barack Obama’s abortion/infanticide extremism.

This is a new position, for which I will travel the country on behalf of SBA List, speaking to pro-life activists, donors, and voters to promote SBA List’s aggressive campaign strategy to elect a pro-life president in 2016 and advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Pro-life blog buzz 6-23-15

pro-lifeby Kelli

  • Abstinence Clearinghouse points out how the Boston Globe surprisingly admits that part of the nation’s abortion decline is likely due to “an ‘empathy-driven reaction’ for all of the Americans that grew up in a world of vivid ultrasound images and miraculous neonatal medicine for preemies.”
  • At Live Action News, Susan Michelle promotes the upcoming #ProlifeYouth tweetfest, to be held on Thursday, June 25th. The goal is to engage more people in the pro-life movement and to “show the world that youth are pro-life, contrary to what the media portrays.”
