A Supreme Court victory for pregnant women

USA Today columnist predicts the future of abortion in America

by Kelli Though the U.S. demographic future is more skeptical of abortion, and will limit abortion more than it is now (likely bringing it into line with Europe’s far more restrictive abortion laws), future Americans will also make substantial room for choice, especially in difficult situations. Abortion-rights activists like to tell scary stories about the […]

University of Texas-Arlington pro-abortion students have tried shutting down the Pro-Life Mavericks’ cross display with both petitions and vandalism, but to no avail.

Why I’m protesting Speaker Boehner’s office on March 25

3576551_orig (1)March 22 will mark two months since the House was supposed to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act but didn’t.

All agree the word “debacle” would aptly describe the chain of events surrounding the GOP leadership’s last-minute decision to pull the 20-week abortion ban.

The first object of my wrath was one of the debacle’s ringleaders, Rep. Renee Ellmers, whose locked office I and others protested the day the glorious vote had been scheduled – January 22, the anniversary of Roe v Wade….

  • This week a Planned Parenthood in California received a package with their address as the return address after the postal service was unable to deliver the package to an address in Georgia. Some employees were suspicious of the package so they called in the bomb squad:

    Inside the package was about four pounds of marijuana, baby diapers and a thank you card….

    The card wasn’t written on in the inside, but was left blank with a generic greeting….

“All In the Family” took social issues to new level on TV

As Lear pointed out, prior to All in the Family, the common idea of a sitcom was pastoral and agricultural, such as Petticoat Junction. He went on to point out that […]

Sunday Word: “Elizabeth’s child leaped within her”

Stanek weekend Q: Pro-lifers, do you care if you’re liked?

In a March 13 LifeSiteNews.com article, Canadian pro-life activist Jonathon van Maren quoted Center for Bio-Ethical Reform leader Gregg Cunningham’s observation, that “liked reformers are rarely effective and effective reformers are rarely liked. I often think of this, for obvious reasons, sometimes referring back in my mind to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which lists the […]

  • At Students for Life, Kristan Hawkins wonders what Michael Voris’ point was when he created an error-filled video which makes dubious claims about abortion and the pro-life movement. Hawkins says Voris is “irresponsible” and using “faulty logic” to claim “abortion numbers aren’t declining,” among other things. Hawkins backs up her rebuttal with links to the facts:

    Not citing any sources, he proclaimed that chemical abortions aren’t tracked and comprise a quarter of all abortions. Therefore, he said, these must be added to the million+ abortions every year, which basically comes out to a number that shows abortions are not declining.

    While Voris appears to make a convincing case in his six-minute video, he is wrong.

Voris: The problem with the pro-life movement is… Protestants?

by Carder Forty thousand differing denominations have sprung up in Martin Luther’s foul wake, each one believing it has the truth in its completeness. That is simply impossible. And the proof is in the pudding; you need look no further than the pro-life movement’s somewhat uninspiring record to recognize this sad fact. It’s true that […]

  • Wesley J. Smith has been writing about the animal rights movement – which sets itself up as anti-human – for quite some time. Now, he says, the UK Green Party “has joined the war on humans”:

    The Party’s election platform calls for expanding the UN’s Declaration on Human Rights to all sentient life forms. From the Telegraph story: Article Five of the UN Declaration on Human Rights, banning “inhuman” treatment, is extended to all sentient life forms.

    The same prison sentences for the murder and kidnap of humans will apply to crimes involving elephants, monkeys and whales.

AHA’s dangerous foray into cyberbullying

I’m writing today about the latest development in the Abolish Human Abortion saga, because I’m concerned someone may end up dead if this doesn’t stop.

Everyone who spends time online has heard the term “cyberbullying.” Defined, it is:

… bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.

Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.

Particularly note, “rumors… posted on social networking sites.”

  • At Bound4Life, Marisa Lengor Kwaning draws attention to the real war on women, which is happening on a global scale – from Boko Haram to gendercide:

    Perhaps, unfortunately, we have gotten used to the fact that girls are going missing in huge numbers all around the world. Because the real war on women begins in the womb.

    In India alone, one million girls are intentionally aborted each year because of their gender…. As a result, 50 million girls are missing in India today.

    The lack of women has caused a drastic rise in sex trafficking and kidnapping of girls as brides to unwed men….

    It would be flawed, however, to dismiss gendercide as an Asian or communist countries’ problem. From 1995-2005, fifteen hundred girls went missing among Indian communities in England and Wales. Topic experts agree that sex-selective abortions was the only viable explanation for this steep decline of girls….

    And the issue persists today. It’s no wonder women and girls are kidnapped and attacked at alarming rates globally.

NPR ignores woman killed by clinic it showcases in abortion promo piece

2015-03-06_1130This is truly shocking, either a new low in yellow journalism or an incredible display of shoddy research.

The slant of the March 3 NPR article by Jennifer Ludden was in its title: “Abortion restrictions complicate access for Ohio women.”

Ludden worried “a steady stream of abortion restrictions over the past four years has helped close nearly half the state’s clinics that perform the procedure,” then went on to blame the state, not substandard clinics or abortionists.

Ironically, Ludden chose Preterm abortion clinic to showcase the hardships abortion clinics and aborting mothers must endure:

On March 25 it will have been just over TWO MONTHS since Republican House leaders reneged on their promise to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act on January 22, when hundreds of thousands were participating in the March for Life.

NOLA Planned Parenthood’s concrete contractor: “The blood is on pro-life hands”

  • Live Action News says the new interactive game “Fusion” (on a website that includes writers like the founding editor of pro-abortion, profane Jezebel) in which players pretend to lead a South Dakota woman through several supposedly real-life scenarios – but they all suggest abortion is the correct answer to the dilemma. Hmm, no agenda there:

    What if the woman does choose to keep the baby?

    If she chooses to have the woman keep the baby, then she either still ends up having the abortion because of a partial placental abruption, or she has the baby and ends up sick, in premature labor, and with mountains of debt.

Pro-abort docs fret over “standards of care” in RU-486 reversals

Father Pavone poses with young family following news conference in Washington on RU-486 reversal protocolby Kelli

The “reversals” also show that the ingestion of medication abortion drugs is never a sure thing when it comes to terminating a pregnancy. While anti-abortion activists tout the alleged “high complication rates” of the process, what they conveniently leave out is that the most common complication is that the patient remains pregnant, and that the protocol needs to be followed up with D&C or vacuum aspiration abortion in order to end the pregnancy….

We knew how important it was for us to get behind Peggy – and the women she represents, to ensure that pregnant women are protected from discrimination in the workplace.

You see, if businesses are allowed to penalize – or even fire mothers for being pregnant, the risk of mothers choosing abortion increases.
