  • Live Action reports that Planned Parenthood of Michigan actually applied for a grant to teach abstinence in schools (after claiming on their website that abstinence education doesn’t work) – and were denied. Is getting tax funding is an addiction with them?
  • At the LTI Blog, Scott Klusendorf shares a short story that cuts to the heart of the “noise” surrounding the pro-life issue.

CDC: 2009 abortion rate and ratio the lowest ever

The Centers for Disease Control released its annual Abortion Surveillance – United States, 2009 report last week.

First came the encouraging news that the number of abortions dropped in 2009 by 5% from 2008, to 784,507, “representing the largest single year decrease for the entire period of analysis,” this past decade.

While the death toll was still a staggering three-quarters of a million babies, nevertheless this was the lowest number of abortions reported since the CDC began using its current tracking model in 2000 (which excludes nonreporting states Alaska, California, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New Hampshire, and West Virginia), the number on the right.

WashPo columnist ties Akin remarks to “anti-science” abstinence ed

Each month, a woman releases an egg (“ovum,” in science speak), which travels down one of two fallopian tubes and hangs out in the uterus for some days awaiting a sperm. If a sperm and egg meet, usually through intercourse, and connect, in a process called fertilization, a pregnancy can occur. The egg, which is a cell and thus cannot be said to have anything like feelings, does not distinguish between the sperm of a rapist and the sperm of Prince Charming.

Entitlement mentality gone wild: Birth control as crucial health care

Unfortunately “kids” today… have been told since before puberty that *everyone* has sex and it is impossible to abstain and anyone who tries will only be utterly miserable, unnatural, and socially stunted until they give up and break down and end up having sex “unsafely” because they didn’t plan for the eventual *necessity* of sex.

Superbug: Gonorrhea soon untreatable

Guest post by Dustin Siggins

Over the last two generations, the political and cultural left has changed the way many Americans view relationships, sex, and children. With about 1.2 million abortions per year, divorce rates at around 50%, and out-of-wedlock birth rates at record highs, one could easily believe they are winning.

However, even humans can’t beat natural law and reality. Marriage, which is mostly a college-educated, upper-income phenomenon these days, offers many benefits “shacking up” does not. Abortion, long claimed to “help” women, is increasingly shown to be done for so-called “elective” reasons, even for partial-birth abortions.

And now the Centers for Disease Control is proving the Catholic Church, LDS Church, Baptists, and other socially conservative institutions correct on abstinence until marriage….

Columnist claims “abstinence got me pregnant”

Suffice to say in the heat of the moment, we hoped the rhythm method would work. Two weeks later I was pregnant. I would say “we” were pregnant, but it really was only me. I was and am still pro-choice. I knew I had options. I considered them all, including marriage, which this young man […]
