Pro-life vid: Media complains pro-life sign at abortion clinic “near a school”

by Kelli

Another display featuring abortion victims is drawing fire, this time in Albuquerque, New Mexico, home of the infamous Southwestern Womens Options late-term abortion clinic.

While this local news report from seems to vilify pro-lifers for placing a graphic display near an elementary school, if you closely watch the video, you’ll see that the sign is directly in front of the abortion clinic.

Pro-lifer Tara Shaver of Protest ABQ responds to parents’ concerns in the video by saying, “[School children are] not our targeted audience. I would think that a more valid concern would be what’s actually happening so near to a school.”

What do you think? Is this a valid concern about school children’s vulnerable eyes, or is the media trying to trash pro-lifers by telling half-truths about a sign that’s been in this location for two years?

Bishop: Write in “Mother Teresa” to protest pro-choice candidates

Mother Teresaby Carder

The leader of Rhode Island’s Catholics is suggesting that voters could write in Mother Teresa’s name or sit out the Nov. 4 election because the candidates aren’t “terribly promising” on the abortion issue.

In a piece posted online Wednesday in The Rhode Island Catholic diocesan newspaper, Bishop Thomas Tobin said that writing in Mother Teresa or Pope Francis in protest would send a signal that voters want anti-abortion candidates.

  • The New York Times covers Planned Parenthood’s continuing attempts to corner the market on abortion. They’re building a $9 million facility in Queens:

    While there are other women’s health centers in Queens that offer abortions, the absence of a Planned Parenthood was “something that had to be corrected,” Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, Democrat of Queens, said.

  • Katha Pollitt is out and about promoting her new book on abortion. The latest is this Huffington Post column excerpted from her book where she claims, “We need to see abortion as an urgent practical decision that is just as moral as the decision to have a child — indeed, sometimes more moral” and “Actually, abortion is part of being a mother and of caring for children….”
  • Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives abortion clinic is re-opening at a new location after the old clinic couldn’t meet standards set forth in Alabama’s Women’s Health and Safety Act of 2013. If you watch the video of the newscast you can see a sign on a door which reads, “NO CHILDREN ALLOWED IN THE BUILDING!!!”

Woman finds out at six months she’s pregnant with rare twins

twinsby Kelli

I had really sharp pain in my left side and went into the doctor, and they said we think you might be pregnant. They told me I was six months and told me to get down to the ER. They did an ultrasound and told me it was twins….

They’re both just little miracles [and] they’re so cute[;] it could have been so many things that went wrong that didn’t.

~ Shelby Magnani, an Iowa woman who went six months without knowing she was pregnant with monoamniotic twins (who share one placenta and one amniotic sac) Anna and Ava, as quoted by Global News, October 14

Country singer Gretchen Peters worried about pro-life legislation

Gretchen Petersby Carder

What scares me about what is happening in the mid-terms in Tennessee is that the amendment that’s on the ballot would actually not provide for abortion in the case of rape or the potential death of the mother. That is extreme….

I got some really quite ugly hate mail, but to me country music has been about adults and real life and the problems they face and I have a responsibility to stand up for the issues I believe in.

Pro-life blog buzz 10-14-14

  • American Life League’s Judie Brown contrasts the indifference toward the slaughter of 3,000 humans daily by abortion in America to the outcry over the euthanasia of an Ebola patient’s dog in Spain. Brown is a dog lover, but even she was shocked at the huge response to save the life of one animal:

    Here is the first sentence of a news report that came to my attention recently: “With more than 3,400 people dead in west Africa and 7,500 infected in the latest Ebola outbreak, 300,000 people sign a petition demanding action… to save an infected dog.” This was twice as many people as those who signed a petition demanding a cure be found for the deadly virus….

    As it turns out, the dog was “put down” Wednesday by Madrid’s regional government. But the fact of the matter is that the plight of this one pet generated more interest and involvement than a single preborn child threatened and then killed by the act of abortion.

    There is something dramatically wrong with this picture.

Pro-life daily vid: Planned Parenthood “noble and just,” says heckler


by Hans Johnson

A poll done for Students for Life of America showed that 59% of 18-24-olds didn’t know that Planned Parenthood performed abortions. And since 79% of their facilities are within five miles of a college campus, the pro-life group decided to launch the Planned Parenthood Project to inform this young targeted group. Besides photo displays, the group uses 915 small pink crosses to represent the number of babies killed each day in PP’s facilities.

In three of a series of four YouTube videos shot at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, an exchange with one pro-choice supporter went from rote argument to entertainingly bizarre. Calling PP “a noble and just organization” as he paced back and forth, he went on to exclaim: “Abort it all you want! I don’t care!” and “Abort away, as far as I’m concerned!” But you have to wonder how much careful thought he has put into this when he invokes the Norse god of mischief (here, in this additional video), declaring, “I am Loki!”  One wishes his “brother” Thor would give him a serious talking-to.

Be sure to turn on closed-captioning.

Jennifer Lawrence and the objectification of women

jennifer-lawrenceby Kelli

By insinuating that women ought to “pay up” and provide naked photos of themselves to whatever man they’re in a relationship with at the moment, [actress Jennifer] Lawrence objectifies women. She degrades them as little more than sex objects, designed to satisfy the appetites of men.

I think, I think the top leadership issue in the world today is how to deal with the continuing, growing population of the world and all the resource demands it places on the world and uh uh burgeoning populations in Africa and Asia that lack the resources to have a happy healthy life and I think we have got to find a way to make the world work for everyone…. Climate change is an issue that impacts that greatly.
