  • Pro-Life Action League does not apologize for picketing hospitals that invite the “P.R. disaster” that will come as a result of granting abortionists admitting privileges:

    Admitting privileges legislation has made hospitals the gatekeeper for abortion clinics’ ability to remain open. That’s allowed protests to move away from the clinics themselves and back to the hospitals, a far more vulnerable target.

  • Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life says the World Health Assembly recently adopted a plan to “reduce high rates of neonatal mortality in large parts of the world”. Unfortunately, they left out something important:

    MCCL GO participated in the online consultation on a draft version of the “Every newborn” plan. [MCCL executive director Scott] Fischbach noted that while preterm birth is the leading cause of newborn mortality (and second leading cause of under-five deaths), the action plan fails to mention a significant risk factor for premature delivery. A wealth of worldwide research has shown that induced abortion substantially increases the risk of preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies.

    “The prevalence of abortion significantly contributes to the problem of neonatal mortality,” Fischbach observed. “The plan to end newborn deaths should have taken into consideration all of the known risk factors.”

Pro-life news brief 2-7-13

  • Slate’s William Saletan (a pro-choice writer) argues pro-lifers get legislation passed because they care more than pro-choicers:

    To cancel out that advantage, pro-choicers have to raise the intensity level. When the percentage of respondents who call abortion critical, very important, or a deal-breaker rises toward 30 percent or more, the balance of power begins to shift.Think about that when you see pro-lifers winning elections, passing laws, and marching in the cold. They don’t win because they’re a majority. They win because they care enough to fight.

  • Detroit News columnist Laura Berman has a rudderless and rather pointless column entitled, “Rhetoric impedes abortion debate,” discussing Planned Parenthood’s attempt to re-frame the abortion issue and dump the “pro-choice” label. The title is odd coming from someone whose columns have been permeated with pro-choice rhetoric for years. Maybe it’s just pro-life rhetoric that impedes pro-choicers from having their way?

    I think a lot of the talking heads (who are basically tools of PP) are finding difficulty making Planned Parenthood’s newest talking points cohesive with their beliefs and arguments.

  • The Crescat discusses her abortion experience:
    The glass container was half full and splattered with blood. Even the tube that fed into the container was crusted with blood….

    All those graphic photos you’ve ever seen of tiny dismembered arms and legs are accurate. Only this wasn’t just one set of tiny arms and legs… this looked like all the babies that had been aborted that day. All together in one glass container….

    They hadn’t even bothered to clean the equipment between patients and I suddenly realized they had every intention of using the same filthy equipment on me.

  • At The Atlantic Cities, Richard Florida discusses the geography of abortion in the United States. Much of it shows how incredibly wrong pro-choicers are when they act as if pro-life policies do nothing to affect the abortion rate (emphasis mine):

    First and foremost, the geography of abortion follows the red and blue political patterning of the states. It is positively associated with the share of state voters who voted for Obama in 2008 (.60 to .65) and negatively associated with McCain votes (-.58 to -.63). This is a dramatic change from 1974-1988, the period covered by the 1994 NBER study, which found that “extensive Republican or Democratic control in a state is uncorrelated with abortion rates.” …

    Abortion is most strongly associated with the fault-line of socio-economic class, across three key dimensions—income, education, and occupation. Abortion rates track closely with the wealth and affluence of states: the richer the location, the higher the rate of abortions (the correlations between the two range from .53 to .65). This effect is in line with previous studies and thus appears to be of long standing.

Democratic hypocrisy in denying human rights

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymXJtEMhWWo[/youtube]So in democratic tradition, Robert doesn’t acknowledge the personhood of certain people. I guess in this case he’s angry about certain conservative blacks and their position on marriage. He tells his readers that we need to understand that this isn’t a gay marriage issue, it’s a “human rights issue”. Okay, first: virtually all you liberals […]
