Former abortion clinic escort arrested for “bumping” pro-lifer with car

20709473_BG1by Andy Moore of AbortionWiki.org

A former escort at a South Carolina abortion clinic decided to start the year off with a bang. Literally.

Larry Carter Center (mug shot right) is a former Green Party candidate for the S.C. House of Representatives and well-known socialist activist. He has also worked as a volunteer escort for the Charleston Women’s Medical Center abortion business.

On January 12, as Carter was driving his teal sedan out of the parking lot of the abortion business, he “bumped” 81-yr-old pro-lifer William Gasque in the knee with his front bumper.

Pro-life news brief 1-22-13

  • NBC/Wall Street Journal has a new poll out on abortion and Roe v. Wade. The poll results again show that large swaths of the population (41%) in this poll don’t know anything about Roe v. Wade, and when the pollsters give an inaccurate description (“first three month” baloney) of Roe’s results, the majority are opposed to overturning it. 31% claimed they thought abortion should always be legal which seems high. Imagine this follow-up: “So you think it should be legal to have an abortion in the 8th month of pregnancy?”The poll’s options seem to favor the pro-choice side as the pro-choice options are “always legal” or “legal most of the time” while the pro-life options are “illegal without exceptions” and “illegal with rape/incest/mother’s life exceptions.” There is a rather large gap and many plausible positions between legal “most of the time” and illegal except for exceptions.

Don’t water down the March for Life

Click to enlarge…

I spotted the above graphic on the Holy Angels Youth Group website (out of Chagrin Falls, Ohio).

Although the graphic was certainly well-intended, it bothered me.

The annual March for Life is scheduled on or near January 22, the anniversary of the infamous U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout all of America in 1973.

Although the M4L website states it is “the collective effort of grassroots prolife Americans to assure that our state and federal laws shall protect the right to life of each human in existence at fertilization,” I think clearly the March is by-and-large a huge demonstration taking a stand against abortion.

Particularly for the above graphic to state the March is to make a statement “against the death penalty,” and to even list it first – before abortion – offends me.

Cardinal Dolan accents Life and religious freedom more at DNC than RNC

Cardinal Dolan must have thought Democrats needed more prayer cover than Republicans. His closing prayer at the Republican National Convention was 544 words, while at the Democratic National Convention it was 700 words. (Text of both here.)

Dolan began his prayer at both conventions with either an intentional or unintentional slight of Islam: “Almighty God, father of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus…” but not Ishmael, Abraham’s firstborn son by his wife’s maidservant Hagar, considered Muhammad’s ancestor.

Not many people likely noticed that, but I did, and I’m sure Muslims in the room fumed. (Photo right is of a prayer gathering of 300 Muslims in Charlotte before the launch of the DNC.)

In other words, Cardinal Dolan made sure everyone in the audience – and God – knew he was praying not to some ambiguous deity, of which so many are worshiped in the Democratic Party, particularly earth. It was a quiet, brilliant stroke of loyalty and defiance, IMO.

But moving on.

Many words in both prayers were similar, if not identical.

Interview: “2016” filmmaker ties Obama’s abortion support to his anti-colonialist beliefs

My husband and I saw the film 2016: Obama’s America last night.

2016 is based on Dinesh D’Souza’s 2010 best-selling book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage. The movie was advertised on this site for several weeks.

Both the book and movie attempt to make sense of Obama’s otherwise inexplicable decisions as president by tying them to his anti-colonialist roots and subsequent belief system. Both of Obama’s parents were anti-colonialists, as was his adolescent mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and several of his professors and adult peers, particularly Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

2016 is a box office hit. As of this weekend 2016 had grossed $18.2 million, making it the highest grossing conservative documentary of all time. 2016 still has a ways to go to compete with its liberal competitor, Fahrenheit 9/11, which grossed $119.2 million.

We found 2016 quite compelling. If nothing else, Obama’s childhood and adult ideological influences would shock American sensibilities.

But I left the movie with a question: How does Obama’s anti-colonial beliefs play into his radical pro-abortion beliefs?

  • Pro-Life Action League reports on the audacity of one abortion clinic: After being fined $36K for violations related to the death of a woman and their first inspection in 15 years, the clinic changed its name and location to avoid the fine.

Evangelicals and Catholics unite against HHS mandate

Before Wheaton’s move, most plaintiffs suing over the mandate were Catholic colleges and organizations that follow the Vaticanís teaching against birth control. Most of the 58 plaintiffs in the 24 lawsuits are Catholic dioceses, colleges and charity groups. But Wheatonís involvement shows that Catholics arenít alone in opposing the mandate, since many evangelical Christians view […]
