  • At Women’s Rights without Frontiers, Reggie Littlejohn is encouraged by the UK ban on sex selection abortion:

    The message of sex-selection abortion is that girls do not deserve to live…. It is impossible to support women’s rights without supporting the right of females to be born.

  • Saynsumthn’s Blog says Planned Parenthood is again sending out appeals for money during the holidays. In the past, they even hawked gift certificates for their services.

  • Pro-Life Wisconsin reminds us that as we enter the Christmas season, the Salvation Army’s official website lists their acceptance of abortion under certain circumstances: rape, incest, life of the mother, and fetal abnormality.
  • At Secular Pro-Life, Sarah Terzo examines the words used by people to normalize and even romanticize the act of abortion, pointing out that, like George Orwell’s novel, 1984, words have opposite meanings. Terzo writes:

    Dismemberment is not an act of love or kindness. We don’t brutally murder our loved ones. Criminals do not commit their violent crimes out of love and concern for either their victims or society as a whole. These statements seem so obvious that it’s absurd to make them, and yet we have to bring it up because of extreme comments from pro-choicers….

    Too many Americans are ignorant as to what abortion actually does to a baby. Oh, on some intellectual level, they may be aware that abortion ends a life or potential life—but they have no idea how developed the babies are, how brutal and bloody abortion really is. They have not thought about the life of the child, the unseen victim who is growing within his mother’s womb, secure and safe, with a beating heart and developing brain, only to be suddenly, brutally killed.

  • ProWomanProLife discusses botched sterilizations in India, which happens much more frequently than is reported:

    This Reuters article reports on ten [now reportedly up to 13] women who died this week in India through botched sterilizations. Fourteen other women are in serious condition.

    But deaths due to sterilization is not news in India.

    Between 2009 and 2012, the government paid compensation for 568 deaths resulting from sterilization, the health ministry said in an answer to a question in parliament two years ago.

  • Wesley J. Smith notes that government-funded Swiss nursing homes are refusing to allow workers to voice objections to assisted suicide in their facilities. Smith warns that this is the way of the future if we continue to “swallow the hemlock”:

    “The new regulations specify that nursing home personnel will not be allowed to interfere if a patient chooses to die. In fact, they are required to set aside a room where the staff of the assisted suicide organisation Exit will help the person to die.

    Wow, imagine touring the nursing home and being shown the room reserved for assisted suicides. (Wonder if they call it the “comfort room.”)

  • Pro-Life Action League posts a video of another ambulance call to the massive abortion facility located in Aurora, Illinois. It is unusual for the staffer calling the ambulance to acknowledge what the medical problem is but they do note here that the patient is hemorrhaging following her abortion. The 911 operator seems familiar with the address and with the facility’s wish that a certain entrance be used:

BREAKING Live Action Planned Parenthood Exposed Part 2: whips, asphyxiation

Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains BDSM sex

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains has been much in the news of late.

A couple weeks ago it was revealed that its Aurora abortion clinic has abortion quotas and gives awards for “exceeding abortion visits.”

Last week we learned of a lawsuit filed against Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Denver abortion clinic for not following legal protocol when aborting a 13-year-old in 2012, who it turns out was being sexually abused by her stepfather. Not only did Planned Parenthood commit the abortion and not report the incident to authorities, it gave her a birth control injection against her will, and sent her back to her abuser.

Today, Live Action released the second in its “SEXED: Planned Parenthood’s Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids” series, which exposes “counselors” at two Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains clinics – Littleton and Lakewood –  advising an investigator they thought was a 15-year-old how to engage in dangerous BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism) sexual behavior. 

Along with teaching deviant, dangerous behavior such as urinating and defecating on one another, gagging, whipping, asphyxiation, being leashed like a dog, and using torture apparatus, the Littleton employee encourages the investigator to violate a law banning minors from entering sex shops.

Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains BDSM 2

In addition, both employees instruct the young investigator about so-called “safe words.” This is where Planned Parenthood violates a well known feminist mantra, to quote Planned Parenthood elsewhere, “No means no!”

So Planned Parenthood on one hand preaches that if a man hears “no” or “stop,” he is to stop, but on the other hand maybe not. Planned Parenthood, can you explain?

Here’s Live Action’s new video, also at PlannedParenthoodExposed.com:

  • Right to Life of Michigan reminds Hillary Clinton – as she rambles incoherently about the Hobby Lobby decision that she opposes – that her own version of a 1994 healthcare bill included conscience protections:
    The 1994 legislation gave “any employer” an exemption from purchasing health care that covered “abortion or other services” if “the employer objects to such services on the basis of a religious belief or moral conviction.”

BaoYu

  • At Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, Reggie Littlejohn tells how a WRWF undercover field worker learned of the potential coercive abortion of a full-term baby girl. They were able to tell the mother of their “Save a Girl” program:
    Our fieldworker reassured her that we are helping other families keep their girls too because we believe that girls matter just as much as boys. We offered to give the family a monthly stipend for a year, to help them support their new daughter. With our help, Bao Yu’s mother was able to stand against the cultural tide of son-preference and give birth to precious baby Bao Yu [pictured left].
  • Real Choice recalls her history with journalist Diane Sawyer, who once labeled a bombshell of a story about an abortionist as a “non-story”:
    After the allegations of patient A.A. became public, a warrant was issued for [Dr. Lawson] Akpulonu’s arrest on charges of rape. He fled. His whereabouts are still unknown. He and his facility remain “a non-story,” very much like the way the “house of horrors” Kermit Gosnell was running in Pennsylvania was dismissed by Sawyer-caliber journalists as just “a local story” and not worth a second glance on their part.Diane Sawyer, if she’d had a shred of journalistic integrity, would have skulked off in vile disgrace after the Akpulonu story broke no thanks to her. Instead, she continued to pick and choose what the public should know about for decades. Her departure from the newsroom is a long overdue good riddance to bad rubbish.

christensensmith

  • Secular Pro-Life points out that the real war on women is happening with the help of Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, which are supporting two Wisconsin abortionists who can’t manage to obtain admitting privileges. Abortionists Dennis Christensen and Bernard Smith (both pictured) deserve to be poster-children for the necessity of abortion facility inspections:
    Christensen’s Rockford, Illinois… was inspected on September 15, 2011, when inspectors found that all three of the abortion rooms “failed to ensure a sanitary environment.” Surgical instruments were not sanitized, and “brown substances” were found on surgical equipment and gloves. Inspectors also discovered that Christensen had no hospital privileges and failed to have a registered nurse present during invasive procedures as required in that state. The Illinois Department of Public Health issued a closure order five days later….

[Smith] was involved in two medical emergencies on the same day in April, 2011. A previous complaint lodged in 2007 concerning other medical emergencies at AMS involving Smith went unheeded.

  • Students for Life comments on the shameless award Planned Parenthood gave their facility in Aurora, Colorado, for exceeding their abortion quota.
  • John Smeaton advertises three paid internships in London this summer, which will “provide[] an excellent induction for those seeking to ‘learn the ropes’ of a leading pro-life organisation. Many interns have gone on to work in the pro-life or political sphere.”

HItler

  • A Voice for Hope posts a sobering picture (left)with a thought provoking question: Are you like him?
  • Wesley J. Smith says a “new study reports that women who use donated eggs in IVF have a greater likelihood of dying”. It can also be dangerous for the donors themselves:
    Women who have IVF babies using donor eggs could be much more at risk for a common but potentially dangerous complication of pregnancy, warn researchers. A new study shows a threefold higher risk of hypertension – high blood pressure – and an even higher risk of pre-eclampsia.

Pre-eclampsia is a severe disorder of high blood pressure in pregnancy that is potentially fatal for the mother and baby and the only cure is to deliver the baby surgically. The use of donor eggs in IVF (in vitro fertilisation) is increasingly common among older women trying for a baby who have no eggs of their own.

But French researchers say the pregnancies of egg donation patients are at a higher risk of disorders caused by high blood pressure, than the pregnancies of IVF patients using their own eggs. They found almost one in five pregnant women using a donated egg developed hypertension, compared with one in 20 women using their own eggs during IVF.

Altogether 11 per cent of women using donor eggs suffered pre-eclampsia, compared with less than three per cent of women using their own eggs.

Insider photo verifies Planned Parenthood has abortion quotas

Evidence of Planned Parenthood abortion quotas, awards

The photo above was taken by a former Planned Parenthood employee, who forwarded it to former Planned Parenthood clinic manager Abby Johnson, a converted pro-life activist. Abby explained what the award meant:

Ever since I left Planned Parenthood, I have been talking about the abortion quotas that are established inside abortion facilities.  Many abortion supporters refused to believe it, citing that surely Planned Parenthood wants abortion to be safe, legal and RARE.  If they want something to be RARE, they certainly wouldn’t have quotas, right?

We recently had a clinic worker leave the affiliate, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.  This affiliate runs the 2nd largest Planned Parenthood facility in the U.S.  At this clinic in Denver, they give out various awards to their satellite clinics and post these awards on a bulletin board for everyone to see.

When our former worker saw this award on public display, it really started to change her thinking about Planned Parenthood’s motivation.  This award was given to their Aurora clinic for “exceeding abortion visits first half of fiscal year 2012 compared to first half of fiscal year 2013.”

This means that the Aurora Planned Parenthood exceeded the abortion quota that was imposed on them.  And THAT is award worthy according to Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood’s abortion coaches

Obviously, a quota wouldn’t be placed on abortion sales unless abortions were lucrative for Planned Parenthood.

Also obviously, Planned Parenthood “counselors” are not unbiased. They are actually abortion coaches. There is both a negative and positive incentive for increasing the number of babies murdered.

And whereas the abortion industry accuses pro-life counselors at pregnancy care centers of being biased, at least our side doesn’t profit from decisions made.

In fact, whenever a mother decides against abortion at a pro-life pregnancy care center, that center stands to lose financially due to resources it may be called upon to provide that mother, her baby, and her family.

Employees: Protect self, snap photos

I appreciate the former Planned Parenthood worker who had the wherewithal to snap this photo. I would encourage all abortion clinic personnel to take photos when visuals arouse concerns, suspicions, or negative feelings. The employees may never do anything with those photos, but they will have evidence in case it’s ever needed.

Christ Hospital Comfort Room, where abortion survivors takenI know what I’m talking about. I took photos at Christ Hospital. It wasn’t as easy then. I had to carry around a disposable camera. Today almost everyone has a camera in their cell phone.

I took photos both as evidence for a day that might come when Christ Hospital called me a liar and also in case my memory started to fade and I started questioning myself.

  • Pro-Life Action League says a recent 911 call from the Planned Parenthood in Aurora, Illinois, shows how little they truly “care, no matter what” about women’s safety. When the emergency operator asks for the patient’s condition, the PP staffer offers nothing – except instructions on where to park:

  • Priests for Life notes that horrific conditions in abortion facilities are the norm, not the exception.
  • ProLife NZ comments on the Academy Award-winning film, 12 Years a Slave, drawing comparisons between abortion and slavery:

    Just like the current practice of abortion, slavery was once a culturally accepted norm that most people either supported or were unwilling to publicly express their opposition to.

  • ProWomanProLife extrapolates on how the Pill is not a good thing for women:

    It forces women to take an artificial hormone every day. It causes side effects including physical pain and mental problems. It makes us dumb and dumber about the way our own bodies work. It changes incentives so that women and men who aren’t remotely compatible sleep together – causing untold emotional pain and the odd “unwanted” baby, now to be considered an ill-begotten side effect.

  • Reproductive Research Audit’s Dr. Jacqueline Harvey writes an open letter to Sen. Barbara Boxer refuting her statement that “women take birth control, more than half of them, as a medication for other conditions.” Harvey was asked to evaluate Boxer’s statement for Politifact:

    In sum, contraception is overwhelmingly the reason why women use contraceptives, while any secondary and tertiary side-effects are a mere afterthought of most users according to the study the senator herself hides behind to authenticate her statement. While Sen. Boxer’s choice to pull one figure from a larger study makes her carefully-worded statement appear half-true, it is completely false. Truly, it is also completely offensive.

  • Secular Pro-Life has an informative article and graphic (shown below, from nyc41percent.com) showing how New York is completely backwards when it comes to the life issue:

    New York City may not have a desire to inspect its abortion facilities, but it is very interested in policing the interactions that pro-life pregnancy centers have with the mothers who come to them for pregnancy tests, sonograms, counseling, diapers, and other assistance. The City has spent who knows how much money defending its unconstitutional anti-pregnancy-center law in court for the past three years.SPL also notes that “no woman has ever had her uterus perforated, had pieces of her dead fetus left inside her, or hemorrhaged to death at a pro-life pregnancy center.”

Planned Parenthood’s new annual report: Abortions up, gov’t funding up

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has released it 2011-2012 annual report, and the numbers aren’t pretty.

The actual reporting period was October 2010 through September 2011. During this time Planned Parenthood murdered 333,964 babies.

Coincidentally, when I checked the census of U.S. cities to provide perspective, the one with the population closest to the number of babies PP killed is Aurora, Colorado, where a gunman massacred 12 people in a movie theater last July.

Aurora’s population is 332,354. In one year’s time Planned Parenthood massacred as many people as who live in this 56th most populated city in America.

This brings the total number of babies Planned Parenthood has killed since it began keeping records to almost 6 million: 5,983,022, to be exact –  2/3 of the population of New York City, and over two times the population of Chicago.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood received a record amount of tax dollars: $542.4 million, up from $538.5 mil in 2010-11 and $487.4 mil in 2009-2010. Forty-five percent – almost half of PP’s income – now comes from you and me. Click to enlarge….

Private contributions to Planned Parenthood took a small drip, from $318.7 mil the year before to $307.5 mil. This figure comes prior to the Komen debacle and “war on women” meme, so I expect a huge jump in this area next year.

Susan B. Anthony List as issued a one-page fact sheet on PP’s latest annual report. SBA List noted:

· Planned Parenthood reported a total of three million clients in 2011, meaning that 11% of all Planned Parenthood clients received an abortion.

· In 2011, abortions made up 92% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 7% (28,674)* and 0.6% (2,300), respectively. For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 145 abortions.

· Cancer screening & prevention services and contraceptive services provided by Planned Parenthood continue to drop. Contraceptive services have dropped by 12% since 2009, and cancer screening & prevention services have dropped by 29%.

* In 2010 PP changed how it reported prenatal care from the number of “clients” to the number of “services,” ostensibly to puff up their numbers. So these figures aren’t necessarily comparing apples to apples. Assuredly the number of PP’s prenatal clients was far fewer than its services. When American Life League noted PP’s bookkeeping change last year, it determined each of PP’s clients was receiving 5.76 “services.” This means PP actually saw ~4,978 prenatal patients, although for what I don’t know. PP does not deliver babies.

The media’s strangely subdued reporting on Family Research Council shooter

I was camping yesterday morning when a friend alerted me via Twitter on my iPhone there had been a shooting at Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Frightened for my friends, I began scanning Google for news reports. Ten minutes later the first story popped up, stating an FRC security guard had been shot in the arm, and the shooter had been arrested.

A bit relieved, I went ahead with a planned day trip, tuning in to news radio in the truck to keep up with the latest. Nada.

I switched to WLS radio, the Chicago ABC affiliate. More nada.

I thought to myself had this been a shooting at a NARAL or GLAAD headquarters, or at a Planned Parenthood clinic, the journalistic world would have stopped. But because FRC is conservative, a shooting wasn’t so big a deal.

As the day went on, the shooter was identified as Floyd Lee Corkins II, pictured above. ABC reported:

Sources say Corkins walked into the Family Research Council and said “It’s not about you, it’s about the policy,” and then shot the guard….

Corkins had been volunteering for about the past six months at The DC Center for the LGBT Community, said David Mariner, executive director of the community center, which is in Northwest Washington. He usually staffed the center’s front desk on Saturdays, and his most recent shift was about two weeks ago….

The Family Research Council advocates conservative positions on social issues and strongly opposes gay marriage and abortion.

Perkins was an outspoken defender of Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s public stand against same-sex marriage, which made the fast-food chain a flashpoint in the nation’s culture wars. The Cathy family foundation has funded FRC….

The suspect allegedly had Chick-fil-A materials inside a bag he carried into the building during the shooting.

I waited for the mainstream media to connect Corkins to the homosexual activist community.

After all, to this day liberals link Scott Roeder, who killed late-term abortionist George Tiller in 2009, to Operation Rescue because “authorities found a Post-It note with Operation Rescue’s phone number in Roeder’s car,” quoting MSNBC as recently as August 13.

And Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards labeled Tiller’s murder as only one of “violent attacks by anti-choice extremists,” quoting from CNN.

And within hours of the Aurora, Colorado, theater shooting last month, ABC falsely linked the killer to the Tea Party.

So if Corkins actually worked at a homosexual organization, and it was during the time when that organization was actively promoting the defamation of Chick-Fil-A, and if on Facebook Corkin listed only two friends, one being David Mariner, executive director of The DC Center (who Mariner quickly defriended), well wow, surely MSM would promote Corkin as a poster child for homosexual violence, right?

Click to enlarge…

And wouldn’t MSM then investigate for deeper connections? Were Corkin and his only male Facebook friend Mariner lovers? Why did Corkin stop working at The DC Center? Did officials at The DC Center notice abnormal behavior, or did Corkin threaten violence against FRC and/or conservatives The DC Center didn’t report to authorities?

No, of course not. Negative profiling by liberals and the media only goes one way.

And will Obama’s FBI charge Corkin with domestic terrorism, or with committing a federal hate crime?

And will Obama and liberals now call on their own, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, which currently lists FRC as a “hate group,” to temper their inflammatory language against conservative groups?

Beyond the politics, I’m so thankful for the bravery of FRC guard Leo Johnson, who is being called a hero for thwarting a unimaginable tragedy. And I’m thankful to read he is in stable condition.

UPDATE, 12:30p: One more thought on media bias comes from Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life:

Another thing that occurs to me: if a security guard at Planned Parenthood had been shot, and the police specifically singled him out as a “hero” – which he IS – there would already be wall-to-wall profiles of Leo telling his story and noting how awesome he is. But no. He’s still in the hospital, and they aren’t even giving him a head fake.

Unborn child of Dark Knight movie shooting victim may help mother cope

Ashley Moser [pictured right] was also shot by James Holmes, and she is still in the hospital recovering. Relatives just broke the news to her about losing her beloved daughter in the shooting, and she reportedly broke down in tears and said she wants to die. But as it turns out, she actually has a very important reason to live.

Ashley Moser is pregnant, and even though she was shot in the stomach, somehow her unborn baby managed to survive.

And while the baby isn’t out of the woods yet, I have to believe that this is the one thing that is going to give Ashley the strength to go on and somehow pick up the pieces of her life after losing her little girl.
