- Over at National Review, Dr. Michael New explains why it is too early for social liberals to be doing a victory dance over a new Gallup poll showing those reporting to be liberal equal to social conservatives:
Last year, social conservatives outpolled social liberals by a 34-30 margin. This year, it was a 31-31 split. This represents a relatively small change that could have been caused by a slight bias in the sample.
While the effects of an onslaught of positive media attention to same sex marriage, seems to have successful in moving public opinion to the liberal category, that does not appear to be the case with the life issues.
Opposition to abortion and pornography has held relatively constant, and a smaller percentage of Americans now find physician-assisted suicide morally acceptable.
- Secular Pro Life commends an Australian mother who fought to obtain a birth certificate for her stillborn child lost in the second trimester. Her campaign was discussed in this Perth Now article, which actually showed a picture of her deceased child, named Blake. Imagine American outlets showing this.
- Pro Life 365 has a thought -provoking post listing “11 ways the sexual revolution enslaved women,” including the introduction of contraception, rejecting motherhood, and seeing children as commodities for adult gratification.
- A Pro Life Blogs post discusses documents obtained that show the true state of affairs for Ohio abortion facilities. It’s a safe bet that Ohio is not an anomaly:
Operation Rescue has released a new special investigative report detailing deteriorating conditions and horrific injuries at Ohio’s eight remaining abortion facilities.
The report is based on secret records from the Ohio Department of Health that have never before been made public, that show that at least 47 abortion-related medical emergencies or complications took place at the eight abortion clinics since 2011, including the abortion-related death of a 22-year-old African-American woman named Lakisha Wilson.
The documents also detail an alarming laundry list of life-threatening safety hazards at those same abortion facilities.
