  • Pro-Life Action League links to President Obama’s new campaign ad in which he claims to be a defender of religious liberty. With the next wave of nationwide Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies coming on October 20, surely he realizes how vulnerable he is on this issue due to his HHS contraceptive mandate. Just after 2:00 in the video, he says he stands “on the side of human dignity and a belief in the inherent worth of all human beings,” yet only applies these statements to “education, poverty, and immigration”:

  • Women’s Rights Without Frontiers quotes Stephen Mosher of the Population Research Institute, who disputes the claim that forced abortions in China has ended:

    The Chinese Party-State has asserted for over three decades that the one-child policy is ‘entirely voluntary.’ But this assertion of ‘voluntarism’ is no more true now than it was when I saw women who were five, seven, and even nine months pregnant held down on the operating table and aborted. Women continue to be arrested, aborted, and sterilized against their will at this very moment.

    WRWF states that “the claim that China has ended its cruel and inhuman practice of forced abortions originates with All Girls Allowed, which reached this conclusion after learning that a Chinese government ‘document [was issued] to Family Planning offices that bans forced abortion and sterilization.'” (AGA has since backtracked a bit from this conclusion.)

  • John Smeaton discusses an astonishing position adopted by the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights. Under the guise of a report on “technical guidance promoting maternal health,” Navanethem Pillay (pictured right) “seek[s] to make effective opposition to abortion provision unlawful on the part of parents; and to criminalize health professionals, administrators and non-governmental organizations who seek to oppose abortion provision – including abortion provision to children under the age of consent.”

    In other words, she wants to make it illegal to speak against abortioneven to your own minor child.

  • Michael New has two articles at National Review. The first discusses a new study showing childbirth to be safer than abortion, and the second shows how the overturning of Roe v. Wade would not affect abortion restrictions in as many states as is currently claimed by abortion advocates.

  • Mommy Life shows how some Hollywood actors and actresses are supporting Obama for re-election by promoting a “pledge” to work and vote for his campaign. Actress Jessica Alba (pictured left, with her hand over her heart) likens this pledge to the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag (as does the campaign slogan itself, “For All.”) Between this and the new Obama American flag being sold on the Obama-Biden campaign website, things are getting creepy.
  • Real Choice remembers Holly Patterson (died 9-17-2003) and Clara Matthews (died 9-17-1893), who both died from septicemia after abortion – 110 years apart to the day. How did the legalization of abortion make it safer for Holly than it was for Clara?
  • Moral Outcry juxtaposes NYC’s concern that Big Gulps will be the death of us all with the apathy about African-American abortion deaths (60% of all conceived) in the city.
  • ProLife NZ says that in Belgium, where capital punishment was outlawed in 1996, some prisoners who are ill are requesting assisted suicide. One was recently euthanized at his request.
  • Reflections of a Paralytic says the pro-life movement isn’t focusing enough on the role doctors play in the abortion debate:

    So much of our time and energy is focused on Planned Parenthood and “abortuaries” and we forget that it’s often legitimate doctors and health care facilities that refer for abortions and commit them themselves. In fact, before abortion was legal, it is my understanding that this is where many, if not most, of the illegal abortions were committed. Not in “back alleys” by untrained hacks, but in hospitals by doctors who would then “doctor” the paperwork when describing the “treatment” they were providing.

Photos of forcibly aborted late-term baby in China spark worldwide outrage

On May 30, 20 local Chinese officials dragged 23-yr-old pregnant mother Feng Jianmei from her home and held her three days for a 40,000 yuan ($6250) ransom before killing her seven-month-old baby en utero by lethal injection and delivering her tiny corpse after family failed to come up with the cash.

Feng and her husband Deng Jiayuan had failed to complete the proper paperwork required for rural families to have a second child. They already had a six-yr-old daughter.

On June 11 photographs taken by Feng’s cousin of Feng next to her murdered baby appeared on the Internet, with International outrage ensuing. This video news report alleges the photo itself was posted by Family Planning Officials, perhaps as a “warning” to other families of what happens when families do not comply with the law. According to USA Today:

In years past, Feng’s forced abortion would have happened with little public reaction, but Internet-based social media tools allow individual Chinese to take their stories directly to the people and are forcing the government to address complaints.

As of Thursday, comments on Feng’s abortion neared 1 million on the Twitter-like microblog site Sina Weibo.

According to ABC, all stories mentioning Feng have now been scrubbed in China.

Meanwhile, government authorities, who at first denied any wrong-doing, finally admitted “the abortion was illegal,” according to The Daily Telegraph, which also reported:

“At the hospital they held her down,” said Mr Deng to All Girls Allowed, a Christian organisation in the United States that campaigns against the One Child policy. “They covered her head with a pillowcase. She could not do anything because they were restraining her,” he added. He said his wife had tried to kill herself after the abortion.

Mrs Feng told All Girls Allowed that she could “feel the baby jumping around inside me all the time, but then she went still”….

Chai Ling, of All Girls Allowed, said officials had “launched a campaign of forced abortions”. Li Yuongjiou, of Ankang’s family planning department, told Caixin, a magazine, that the town had missed its targets under the One Child policy for two years, and this year there was an emphasis on stricter enforcement.

According to ABC News, the distraught Feng slit her wrists. MSNBC reported last night that “three officials would be relieved of their duties” in the wake of the murder and that a deputy mayor had apologized to the couple. A lot of good that will do.

The Susan B. Anthony List is calling on President Obama to condemn China’s One-Child forced abortion/sterilization policy and to immediately cut off funding to the United Nations Population Fund, which helps facilitate China’s horrific family planning program. Both Presidents Obama and Clinton reinstated funding to UNFPA after Presidents G.W. Bush and Reagan cut it off. Under Obama’s watch the U.S. has given $145 million to UNFPA, and he has requested another $47 million in his 2012 budget.

But vocal opposition from Obama may be slow to come, since China holds the largest share, 26%, of the United States’ $15.77 trillion debt.

Meanwhile, if any U.S. feminist or abortion groups are outraged by the forced denial of Feng’s “choice,” I can’t find evidence.

China’s house of cards: High rate of female suicide linked to one-child policy?

Chinese women did not used to commit suicide at five times the world average, and it’s not normal that suicide is the number-one cause of death for young women in China….

But when asked, nobody knew the root causes. We as an organization felt strongly that it is related to the one-child policy, because we looked at the rate increasing after the policy was established.

  • Live Action dissects Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report (2008-09), which reveals that the largest portion of their funding comes from the taxpayers. No wonder they’re fighting defunding efforts so ferociously. What other nonprofit can count on taxpayer funding for 34% of their total revenue – less than their private contributions?

    Live Action notes:

    Without government funding and a robust abortion business, it isn’t likely that Planned Parenthood would be able to keep operating in its current form. In short, for PP to survive as-is, they are beholden to advance a robust abortion business and engage in controversial political involvement in an attempt to keep the taxpayer funding flowing.

Joe Biden’s macabre support of China’s forced abortion/sterilization one-child policy

Vice President Joe Biden is known for his foolish gaffes and inappropriate statements – not positive attributes, particularly in a politician.

But what Biden said in China on August 20 was beyond foolish and inappropriate. It was macabre, it was sick…

I never thought anyone could match Barack Obama’s penchant for abortion. As you know, he supports abortion to the point of condoning infanticide. But Biden has done that. I now consider Obama and Biden a fully matched pro-abortion pair, the most radically extremist abortion proponents to run America’s executive branch ever…

In context, a soundbite that sounds awful enough standing alone gets even worse:

  • The Montreal Gazette has a story on a former leader of the Tiananmen Square protests, Chai Ling, who is now focusing her attention on preventing sex-selection abortions in China:

    She launched the group All Girls Allowed, which aims to end what she described as “gendercide,” the elimination of millions of girls in China and elsewhere through sex-selective abortion.

    The group raises money to donate $20 a month to poor Chinese women who raise girls, hoping that their husbands and in-laws would see added value in keeping baby girls instead of considering them to be a burden.

  • Pro-Life Action League reports cancer researcher Dr. Chris Kahlenborn presented Johnson & Johnson’s apparently unconcerned shareholders with research about the link between the Pill (such as J&J’s Ortho Tri-cyclen and Ortho-Evra) and an increased risk of breast cancer.
