  • American Life League’s Judie Brown exposes Oregon’s “triple X”-rated Oregon Adolescent Sexuality Conference, calling it a “field trip to hell.”
  • The Vine highlights the week in pro-life happenings: the Pope clarifies that he is indeed pro-life; pro-life groups are willing to defy court orders saying they must provide abortifacient contraception for employees; the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act again draws attention after midterm elections bring more pro-life politicians into power.
  • From Clinic Quotes shares a rare, candid admission from abortion advocate Frances Kissling:

    Abortion is not like having your tooth pulled or having your appendix out. It involves the termination of an early form of human life. That deserves some gravitas.Sounds like Kissling needs to have a chat with fellow abortion advocate Amanda Marcotte sometime soon.

  • Big Blue Wave comments on those “Westboro Baptists of feminism,” Femen, and the group’s most recent tasteless tactic. This time, the bare-breasted protestors appeared at the Vatican, using crucifixes to simulate sex acts in protest of Pope Francis’s upcoming visit to the European Parliament.
  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal writes the first of a series entitled, “The Contending Opinions on Three-Parent Embryo Safety.” The quest for perfect, disease-free, designer babies is riddled with issues, ethical and otherwise.
  • A Culture of Life shares an excerpt from Mauro Cozzoli’s The Human Embryo, discussing the ethics surrounding what to do with “leftover” frozen embryos.
  • Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life points out that while the United Nations celebrates 25 years since its adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the rights of children from conception remain unprotected:

    Tens of millions of abortions occur around the world each year, and countries that protect unborn children face pressure to legalize the procedure. This is a profound injustice. The Convention on the Rights of the Child affirms that, quoting the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth.” All children, born and unborn, deserve protection.

  • Live Action recommends the short film, “The Appointment,” directed by filmmaker Brandon Rice:

    Rice says he purposely did not make the film either blatantly pro-life or overtly Christian. He says that by not having these overt overtones, the film becomes more accessible to all people, not just the usual pro-life Christian viewers, so they wouldn’t be instantly turned off by a label they might not desire. He says: “If people without a religious faith see it, it may cause them to think and choose life anyway.”The ending is powerful and shines light on the real “choice” of abortion a subtle but powerful way. This is what Rice and the filmmakers with this project, which he says he didn’t want to be an “in your face” message movie.

  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal details the perfect storm swirling in Australia (as well as the United States) where empirical evidence on the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link is confronted with an ideology which seeks to suppress the data:
    Melbye, Brinton, and the rest of the NCI coterie deny the validity of their own data (as well as data from all over the globe), data that time and time again substantiate the ABC link. Their sole reason for denying the data in case-control studies (which are retrospective analyses) is the assertion that women who have had induced abortions are more likely to recall them, or report them if they have breast cancer. Dr. Janet Daling who included in one of her studies a test of this putative bias, studied women with cervical cancer and found absolutely no recall bias in her cases or controls. That makes sense because nearly all cervical cancers are caused by human papilloma virus. Janet Daling also publishes with the deniers….

    The issue is the legality of induced abortion and what the frightening specter of breast cancer fifteen or twenty years later might mean. In other words, it’s scientists denying scientific data because of a political agenda.

  • At National Review, Andrew Walker discusses data (left; click to enlarge) emerging from a recent survey which shows that churchgoing Christians who believe same-sex marriage is acceptable also tend to reject other Christian teachings about sex:

    According to [sociologist Mark] Regnerus, churchgoing Christians (who were comparably much fewer in number as a pool of respondents), register much higher support for pornography, cohabitation, casual sex, and higher support than the general population for abortion rights….

    … Regnerus’ study reaffirms that “sexuality isn’t ancillary to Christianity, in the way some other cultural or political issues are. Marriage and sex point, the Bible says, to a picture of the gospel itself, the union of Christ and his church. This is why the Bible spends so much time, as some critics would put it, ‘obsessed’ with sex. That’s why, historically, churches that liberalize on sex tend to liberalize themselves right out of Christianity itself.”…

    It may seem too simple to infer, but the conclusion begs to be written: Liberal sexual beliefs work, in the long run, to make fewer Christians.

  • Big Blue Wave links to the story of a former pro-choicer who took the time to question her position by examining the hard evidence, which led her to a pro-life conversion. One thing she notes is the lack of information on the pro-choice side:
    The biggest thing I noticed, however, was that… [t]he pro-lifers encouraged women to educate themselves….

    On the pro-choice side, it was a totally different story.

    … To my concern and surprise, I could not find one shred of information about fetal development on any websites associated with the pro-choice movement. When I read their literature about the details of abortion procedures, they were full of insulting euphemisms…. I felt like I had been transported back to Victorian England, where women weren’t supposed to be told hard facts, even about their own bodies, because they might get all flustered.

  • Another conversion story comes from an interview posted at the Canadian Centre for Bio Ethical Reform, in which Jonathon Van Maren talks with Donny Pauling (pictured right), “a former pornographic film producer who is currently an anti-porn activist, Christian speaker, and Internet advertiser. His views were shaped by his time in the porn industry, in which he worked for nine years, and led him to view its effect as detrimental to persons involved.”

    With Planned Parenthood in the news for encouraging minors to access pornography, this is timely.

  • Abstinence Clearinghouse links to an article which states that pre-marital sex is not the glue that keeps a relationship stable:

    Pre-marital sex or otherwise does not provide the glue to committed life relationships. It complicates break ups and may trigger many false starts in subsequent relationships.

    Nowadays, the thing that God designed to bring fulfillment and oneness in the confines of marriage has become the source of many relationship wounds, tears and misconceptions.

  • A Culture of Life says a new service, Time Lapse Morphometry Imaging, is allowing scientists to closely examine developing embryos created through IVF in order to determine which ones will have the “best prognosis” for successful implantation in women age 37 and younger. The cost would be an additional $1000 – but what is the real cost of IVF? The loss of dignity of human life:

    While the birth of a baby is always worth rejoicing over, we do have concerns over how these babies have been conceived…. Their siblings, deemed “not good enough” were discarded as nothing more than medical waste. The remaining ‘lucky’ embryos had their lives suspended through cryopreservation for possible use later on.

  • Live Action News says the new movie The Giver is receiving good reviews from pro-lifers:

    In the Washington Post, nationally-syndicated columnist, Michael Gerson notes: “No movie, in my memory, involves a more explicit depiction of infanticide, conducted at the Nurturing Center by Jonas’s father with a horrifying cheerfulness. ‘They hadn’t eliminated murder,’ Jonas realizes, ‘they had brought it home. They had just called it by a different name.’”

Announcing new JillStanek.com crew members!

announcing-thumb-200x301by Carla

I would like to announce some exciting news here at JillStanek.com!

We have reshaped our Mod Squad, which is made up of pro-lifers who have shown themselves to be dedicated, honest, and respectful commenters here.

I’m excited to announce that Del, LibertyBelle, and Sydney have all graciously said YES to accepting the opportunity to moderate this blog! We are excited by their willingness to do this! Carder and Bobby Bambino will carry on as mods as well, and we are very grateful. Many thanks to our outgoing mods Gerard Nadal and Alice.

I will be stepping down as lead mod of this blog. Six years have simply FLOWN by!

I read this blog for years and did not comment until 2007 and was hooked. :) Jill asked me to be a moderator in 2008, and I have learned so much! I have met amazing pro-life warriors who are now lifelong friends and come to understand exactly what those who are pro-abortion think and believe.

I have watched some of those pro-abortion hearts transform into pro-life hearts and have also had the privilege of helping post-abortive mothers who have contacted me. Jill gave me a platform as a post-abortive mom and a chance to speak my heart and bring a name and a face to post abortive regret… and for that I will be forever grateful.

I will be praying for all of you as you continue to fight the good fight here and out there. Saving lives and educating others and celebrating the major pro-life wins in laws that protect mothers and their children. I am so proud of all of you!

This is not goodbye. This is “see ya”!

Jill note: Carla has been a dedicated leader on this blog, taking her role as lead moderator very seriously. I am really going to miss her. And yes, Carla is my go-to friend to whom I send post-abortive moms for compassion, wise counsel, and help with healing. I know I can still go to Carla for that. She has become a dear friend over the years. I am really going to miss her daily presence here.

We are also going to miss Gerard and Alice and thank them for their sacrifices of time here. LauraLoo also needs an extended break away from job-sharing Pro-life videos of the day with Hans. The blog’s glue, Kelli, will be stepping into her shoes.

I want to welcome and thank Del, LibertyBelle, and Sydney, well known and cogent pro-life voices in our blog community. Carder, Bobby Bambino, and Susie are all staying on, whew!

Thanks also to you readers and commenters for indeed making this a special place.

  • Bound4Life reports:

    In January, the owner of the only abortion clinic in Flathead County, Montana was told that she had 90 days to move her business off of the premises. Little did she know the new owners of the building where her clinic was located were Michelle Reimer, Executive Director of pro-life pregnancy center Hope Pregnancy Ministries, and her husband.In a statement, Reimer told Democracy Now that the building was purchased as “a stand for the pro-life position in a legal, peaceful and non-confrontational way, purchasing the building in order to advance the cause of life.”

    Certainly Genesis 50:20 applies! “You planned to harm me. But God planned it for good. He planned to do what is now being done. He wanted to save many lives.”

  • Coming Home quotes an article by Wesley J. Smith about Oxford bioethicist Julian Savulescu’s proposal of making babies via IVF, screen for intelligence,  and only implant those who possess a certain IQ. Coming Home suggests a new meaning for Ph.D:

    If we are to salvage a crumbling western civilization, then the formation of our young in universities and colleges will need to be done by Ph.D.’s who understand and live the three cardinal virtues of academics: Prudence, Humility, Decorum.

  • Big Blue Wave cheers and adds, “Promote that Bishop!” He would be Bishop Thomas Paprocki, who has given his blessing to the pastor of pro-abortion U.S. Senator Dick Durbin’s home parish in Springfield, Illinois, to withhold Holy Communion, in accordance with canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law. This is important to show him the seriousness of his actions and to restore him spiritually.
  • Josh Brahm is asking us to start thinking ahead for next year’s March for Life and consider how we can use our signage and chanting more effectively:

    I would just really love for the people of the pro-life movement to be represented as what they hopefully are, caring and thoughtful. I don’t think that is necessarily what is being seen now.
  • Down on the Pharm posts “Adams’ abortion commentary,” a satirical take on why abortion good, or was it?
    Adam tried to go farther and crazier than the abortion supporters of today to elicit the laughter from his peers.  The problem is that being crazier than the abortion extremists is impossible, and that’s what has some people  wondering if Adam was kidding.Decide for yourself…

  • Kansans for Life applauds Senator Pat Roberts for his proposed legislation, “Repeal Rationing in Support of Life Act.” See video here.

    Mary Kay Culp, executive director of Kansans for Life, stated, “Obamacare authorizes Washington bureaucrats to create one uniform, national standard of care that is designed to limit what private citizens are allowed to spend to save their own lives. We commend Senator Roberts for his bill and his consistent leadership to end Obamacare’s rationing.”
  • American Life League advises you to be careful what you sign.  Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment may sound like it has your best interest at heart, but ALL advises that it is another of several laws being proposed to further strengthen the ability of the hospital or long term care facility to make your signature mandatory, and even allow physicians to sign for you if they think it is in your best interest.  Even more frightening is that these are being given to those not terminally ill. The words “cost savings” are becoming a familiar sound bite.

  • At the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, Alex Schadenberg says an Australian high court has decided that a man who helped his friend commit suicide cannot inherit from the will of his deceased friend. Until this ruling, Schadenberg notes:

    Only those convicted of murder or manslaughter had previously been barred from benefiting from an estate if named as executors or beneficiaries in their victim’s will. Hopefully this decision will further protect people who are at the lowest point in their life.

mindy_tran

  • Live Action News highlights the remarkable story of Mindy Tran, a mother who threw her body under a rolling car to prevent it – with her twins buckled inside – from going into traffic. She is expected to recover from her injuries. LA opines:

    Mindy’s example should cause our nation to ponder the true meaning of motherhood. Deep down we want mothers to do everything they can to protect, nurture and care for their children. We praise them when they sacrifice because we know it’s the right thing to do. Where would we be as a nation if all mothers sought to protect their children’s lives at any cost?

  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal pens a letter “addressed to every physician, scientist, and genetic counselor who believes in a eugenic agenda that targets the unborn specifically because of diagnosed genetic anomalies”:

    Who taught you in medical school or graduate school that we doctors of science and medicine are the custodians of the human gene pool? Who was it that told you it was your job to keep that pool “clean?”…How have we progressed from that understanding to where we are today?…

    What is it that you believe you have been entrusted with that leads to this neo-eugenics?…

    When was it that we stopped looking for cures and enhanced therapies, and started taking the cheap way out? When did death and non-existence become the answer, rather than healing and wholeness? When did we receive a mandate to kill every baby we could in order to aid the patient in avoidance of suffering?

Intl Day Unborn Child 14 pale green web

  • Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life reminds us that today, March 25, is the International Day of the Unborn Child. To promote this, share the graphic (right) on social media.
  • Big Blue Wave wonders if, in the future, euthanasia has the potential to begin to disproportionately affect minorities like abortion has.
  • At The Leading Edge, Brendan Malone counters an attempt to glamorize the “work” of notorious New Zealand back-alley abortionist Flo Radcliffe (1904-1975). Far from being admirable, Radcliffe charged well for her services – $2500 per abortion – and was certainly no charity worker. She was known to have injured some abortion clients and even ran a brothel out of her home. Malone notes, “If this is what passes for a pioneering women’s advocate then I’d really hate to see what these people consider to be the exploitation of women.”

  • Americans United for Life applauds a coalition of black pastors and leaders in Illinois who are urging the passage of laws to protect women from the same negligent treatment that resulted in the death of Tonya Reaves at a Chicago Planned Parenthood. Reaves died as a result of a botched abortion. Reaves’ family filed a wrongful death suit and PP paid $2M. The coalition is seeking passage of two bills that would require informed consent before an abortion and would also require abortion facilities to have the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers.

Life-Film-Fest

  • Live Action News draws attention to the Life Film Fest, “which takes place in Hollywood [and] is dedicated to providing an outlet for aspiring pro-life artists to showcase their films and foster their craft.” Pro-life cinema is becoming more popular, as evidenced by the success of movies like Bella and October Baby.
  • Down on the Pharm notices that Walgreens Pharmacy has seen fit to fire a Tennessee pharmacist for refusing to sell Plan B for religious reasons, despite “[having] to settle lawsuits in Illinois for similar firings.” Is “leave your religious beliefs at the door” their employment mantra? Now that the drug is available over the counter, it should be easier for a pharmacist to opt out of making the sale.
  • Bound4Life says a Houston abortion facility has had its license yanked for violating the Texas law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion facility. 268 illegal abortions were found to have been performed there at the time of the inspection. In reference to this situation, Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman remarked, “If that abortion clinic’s abortionists are so bad that no hospital will have them, then the clinic is just too dangerous to operate.”
  • Clinic Quotes shows the mentality that results when disabled babies are frequently allowed to die in pediatric hospitals:

    She [the woman who counseled the parents] reported that the parents had decided not only that they did not want to repair the child’s oomphalecele, but they wanted the child to die, and they were willing to do what they could to hurry that event along. The parents had left orders that the child not be fed. She reported that Berger was very upset with this turn of events…. Berger claimed that it was one thing for the physicians and the parents to handle this, and quite another for the nurses who had to deal with the infant every day and would be the ones to watch it starve….

Bill [a doctor] reported that the mother was discouraged because today the baby looks good. She was hoping that it would die soon, so seeing it looked healthy really discouraged her.

childeuthanasia

  • The Leading Edge posts an insightful article in which a citizen of Belgium claims the reason why child euthanasia was legalized is related to why even late-term abortion was legalized:

    At the risk of over-simplifying for the sake of writing something that tries to make one clear point, I would like to suggest that a major cause of Belgium’s liberal abortion and euthanasia laws is an inability to deal with suffering.

  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal responds to the recent passage of “civilizational suicide” – child euthanasia in Belgium. He recalls how the tender care of a terminally ill child was handled in America by his then fiancée, now wife, Regina, who was a night nurse for a child with leukemia. Her patient’s pain was managed and he received loving care from his parents and medical personnel until the moment of his death:

    Children such as Daniel simply do not think about suicide. They are hard-wired for hope in the future. In Regina’s quarter of a century as a pediatric nurse, never once has she come across a terminally ill child who ever wanted to end it all, who ever thought in those categories. That is a category introduced by the adults in their lives. The permanence of death simply escapes children.

  • Coming Home has a bold rebuttal to Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s appearance on Meet the Press, where he claimed that Obamacare wouldn’t really be a problem if it weren’t for the HHS contraception mandate:

    So, give the Church that exemption and she will go mute on all of the other horrors this law is visiting on Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

    You’re not gonna hear from us anymore.”

    No, Cardinal Dolan. Most respectfully, we need you and the other bishops to fight for us…. Want to fill the pews? Defend your flock! The nation has awakened to the trap laid by Obama, the imprisonment, the economic destitution coming under this law, the massive carnival of death on the other end of the life spectrum, and not just abortion. The nation is aroused, and my bishops are losing the forest for the tree.

    There is not a shred of moral decency in this law. It is a eugenicist’s dream. It preys on the very weakest on both ends of the life spectrum and impoverishes everyone in-between.

    In your interview two years ago, you indicated that the president made all sorts of promises to you and the bishops and then broke them all. Where is your outrage and disgust? You cannot deal with such men. You can only defeat them.

    This president and his signature piece of legislation are tearing this nation apart. This is the golden moment for our bishops to stand and fight, with a nation desperate for leadership in that fight. This is our defining moment in the Catholic Church.

    This is bigger than contraception and abortion.

    This is the forest, not just one tree.

marywagner

  • Generations for Life suggests that pro-lifers send Christmas greetings to Mary Wagner of Toronto, who has been in jail since August for the crime of offering life-affirming help to women inside an abortion mill.

    According to GFL, “this was the sixth time Mary had been arrested since she began her campaign of civil disobedience in March 2010. Since then, she has spent nearly three years in prison.”

  • Bound4Life applauds the European Parliament’s rejection of a bill that would have labeled abortion a fundamental human right, mandating that pro-life countries offer abortion in their public healthcare systems. Especially targeted were the pro-life countries of Ireland, Poland and Malta:

    The measure the European Parliament is now considering contains no limits regarding gestational age – leaving open the possibility of elective-abortion-until-day-of-birth as a human right. Doubly disturbing are the severe infringement on conscience protections of physicians (specifically gynecologists and anesthesiologists) that are proposed.

    While it is good news that it was defeated it was sent back to committee, don’t be surprised to see another attempt.

  • Josh Brahm highlights the innovative pro-life efforts of Online For Life.
  • Expose Abortion shares a chilling quote from former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino. No wonder the industry fights so hard to silence those who leave:

    The resident on call got the job of doing the salines… and they were horrible because you saw one intact, whole baby being born, and sometimes they were alive. That was very, very frightening. It was a very stomach-turning kind of existence.

  • The FRC Blog has an interview with pro-life Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) about how Obamacare is using federal money to fund abortion in certain healthcare exchanges, in defiance of the Hyde Amendment.

joshua-Ackley-from-100-questions

  • Down on the Pharm questions why the Girl Scouts of America would hire Joshua Ackley as their spokesperson and public relations specialist. Ackley has a second job as a band member in “homo-punk” or “homo-core” genre and is a member of the Dead Betties (pictured right), profiled at 100questionsforthegirlscouts.org. How does one manage to promote positive and healthy images for girls by day while exploiting them in some of the band’s images?
  • Euthanasia Prevention Coalition explains why safeguards and controls don’t work once laws authorizing euthanasia are passed:

    At a press conference, Prof. Dr. Etienne Montero, Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Namur, Belgium, gave an overview of 11 years of euthanasia in Belgium. The proponents of euthanasia in Belgium recognize that most requests for euthanasia are not rooted in physical pain, which can be controlled, but in psychological suffering. Examples include loss of meaning, loneliness, weariness of life, and need to master one’s death. In situations of suffering, a euthanasia request is understandable, but courts cannot give the right to euthanasia without endangering the lives and security of its citizens. All citizens are at risk of excesses and abuse.

  • Down on the Pharm shares some information that probably should have been brought to women’s attention much sooner – Plan B and ella aren’t as reliable for females who weigh more than 176 pounds:

    The European manufacturer of Norlevo, which is their version of Plan B (Levonorgestrel) has very kindly decided to warn people that their product does not work for women over 176 lbs, and is less effective for women over 165 lbs….

    In fact, people ALSO could learn here that the newer morning after pill, Ella (ulipristal acetate) has the same problem….

    It appears that Mother Jones is the first of the mainstream media to let the kitty out of the bag in the United States. They note that the average weight of American girls is 166.2 lbs, which puts them over the weight limit for Plan B to work at its touted 60 percent effectiveness. The avg weight of Black and Hispanic women from 20-39 years of age is 186 lbs, which means that they can completely forget about Plan B.

    Any hospital or clinic using this drug as a part of rape treatment is therefore pushing ineffective treatment and charging fraudulently. Planned Parenthood and its ilk are doing the same.

  • Abortion State says lawyers are reluctant to take on cases against Planned Parenthood because the powers that be are almost uniformly aligned in favor of PP. One attorney said taking them on “is like going up against The Mob,” as illustrated in a recent medical malpractice case. This entire article is worth a read.

trojan-sexual-health-ranking2

  • According to Abstinence Clearinghouse, Trojan Brand Condoms has a “report card” (graphic pictured left; click to enlarge) ranking colleges and universities on their sexual health, which they claim is based on “[several factors, not the least of which, is the] hours of operation of the student health center, student clubs that discuss sexual health, STD/HIV testing….” But, as AC points out, campuses that promote abstinence until marriage – the healthiest possible choice – obviously aren’t going to rank high on Trojan’s list:

    … [T]esting for STDs does not make a campus healthier, nor does having clubs that talk about sexual health issues. Having a student body that commits to remaining sexually inactive till marriage (i.e. abstinence) is the healthiest idea yet. However, Trojan Brand will not accept the healthy idea of abstinence in its ranking system of college campuses. Could this, in and of itself, not be considered a conflict of interest on the part of the Trojan Brand manufacturer? Without sexually active college students how much business would Trojan Brand stand to lose?

  • Fletcher Armstrong challenges pro-lifers with the question, “When you suit up for pro-life work, what would you rather do, feel good or make an impact?”
  • Despite his philosophical disagreements with Abolish Human Abortion (AHA), Josh Brahm provides proof that the group was falsely accused on Facebook of attempting to deceive abortion-minded women.
  • At Live Action, Calvin Freiburger notes how abortion advocates are so extreme that they are now using non-terminally disabled preborn children (like those with spina bifida) to try and further their agenda for unlimited abortion. How incredibly sad that if a preborn child isn’t guaranteed the kind of “quality of life” to which the parents feel entitled, they willingly kill. What a morally bankrupt outlook on the value of the disabled.
  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal shares a Unilever film/advertisement “that is taking on many parents’ fears and saying that there is every reason to bring their children into the world”:
