- Kansans for Life reports that the late George Tiller’s “rubber stamper” abortionist, Ann Kristin Neuhaus, is continuing her attempts to get her medical license revocation overturned:
This past January, the [KS Board of Healing Arts] issued a second revocation against Neuhaus on the single issue of incomplete medical files for those 11 teens. This was her “third strike” said the Board; she had been cited in past years for improper patient documentation and had violated her legal stipulation to amend her ways. The Board order characterized her as stubborn and “incapable of successful rehabilitation,” and assessed legal costs at just under $32,000.
But earlier this month Neuhaus petitioned Judge Theis to again block the Board’s revocation and dismiss the legal expenses.

- Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life says a bill on abortion facility licensing has “passed through a second committee of the Minnesota House of Representatives“:
The bill (H.F. 606), authored by Rep. Debra Kiel [pictured, left], R-Crookston, would require facilities that perform 10 or more abortions per month to be licensed by the state commissioner of health. It would also authorize inspections of abortion facilities (up to two inspections per year), with no prior notice required.
Abortion centers in Minnesota currently are neither licensed nor inspected by any state agency — even though dangerous conditions and unscrupulous abortionists have been discovered in numerous other states. The proposed legislation would rectify this problem by applying the licensing requirements for outpatient surgical centers to abortion centers.
- At ProLife365, Kevin Kukla calls out pro-abortion environmentalists, whom he believes “try to compensate for their unnatural sexual lifestyles by convincing us environmental activism is much more important” than saving human life:
I realize not everyone who opposes animal testing or deforestation subscribes to the creed of the Culture of Death. I admit I am painting with a broad brush, to some degree.
The point is, those who rail against the supposed destruction of Mother Earth often are doing so merely as compensation for NOT caring about the dignity of human life….
The denial needs to end for liberals on abortion and other sinful behaviors.
In reality, every person has an innate desire, by way of the Natural Law, to sacrifice for something greater than himself. Every person has a need to love and to be loved. Sacrificing babies in the name of preserving one’s lifestyle is not love. Using others for cheap sex is not love either. The Culture of Death, thus, can never satisfy the innate desires of the soul.
No amount of hand wringing over poaching or global warming will fix that.
- FRC Blog draws attention to an article on one woman’s feelings about being raised in a lesbian household. While the media paints solely a positive picture of gay parenting, it appears that some children are aching to know their biological parents:
In her loving, gentle, but painfully honest open letter to advocates of same-sex marriage, Heather Barwick [pictured, right] describes being raised by two lesbians. Her mother and her partner loved Heather, but couldn’t replace her “deep-down unquenchable ache for a father, for a man.” Following are some excerpts from her moving piece, which is addressed specifically to same-sex partners raising children:
… “Gay marriage doesn’t just redefine marriage, but also parenting. It promotes and normalizes a family structure that necessarily denies us something precious and foundational. It denies us something we need and long for, while at the same time tells us that we don’t need what we naturally crave. That we will be okay. But we’re not. We’re hurting….
It’s not just me. There are so many of us. Many of us are too scared to speak up and tell you about our hurt and pain, because for whatever reason it feels like you’re not listening. That you don’t want to hear. If we say we are hurting because we were raised by same-sex parents, we are either ignored or labeled a hater.”
