Star gets testy when “Obvious Child” billed as “abortion rom-com”

Jenny Slate in the abortion rom-com Obvious Child

As commenter Christina noted on Facebook (a line I stole on Twitter), “Let’s make abortion the central theme of a comedy, then pretend we’re not trivializing it and trying to make it funny.”

But that’s exactly what the star of a romantic comedy about abortion is trying to say.

Pro-life anti-abortion chalk and awe at home of abortionist

Be sure to take the poll at the bottom of this post.

Pro-life activists wreak havoc on New Orleans’ pro-abortion peace

Pro-life activists descend on New Orleans to remind abortion crowd, no justice, no peaceThis week 300 members of the groups Operation Save America and Abolish Human Abortion have descended on New Orleans for OSA’s annual gathering and to remind the pro-abortion world, “No justice, no peace.”

Holding prayer meetings by night and prayer vigils by day, the pro-life/abolitionist activists have been busy – protesting two abortion clinics, a Planned Parenthood construction site, the homes of two abortionists (Mary Gardner and Roshanda Dean), the day care business of an abortion clinic manager (yes, you read that right), a pro-abortion church, and more. I can’t keep up. They also held a wake for an aborted baby.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide in the next week or so whether to take up the question of whether a for-profit company can deny its female employees contraception coverage in employer-provided health plans because the company owner has a religious objection. We’re not talking about religious institutions here. We’re talking about a secular […]

  • The Los Angeles Times has a story on Hoag Hospital’s decision to merge with the St. Joseph Health System and stop performing abortions. To get an idea of how pro-abortion some people in California are, the attorney general of the state is now investigating whether Hoag performed less than 100 abortions a year and is making sure Hoag is “doing enough to ensure that there are accessible alternatives for elective abortions.”

First Supreme Court decision of new session a victory for pro-life activists

Well, hey now, there’s still a bit of justice in the land.

In 2005 pro-life activist Steven Lefemine, pictured right, sued the police department of Greenwood County, South Carolina, for stopping he and his band of 20 pro-life activists with Columbia Christians for Life from displaying graphic images of abortion at a busy intersection. Police maintained the group was creating a disturbance after receiving several complaints.

When police threatened him again at another protest, Lefamine sued in 2008 on the basis that his First Amendment right to free speech was being violated.

Lefamine won his case in federal district court. However, the judge denied Lefemine’s request for reimbursement of attorney fees. This despite the fact that, quoting the Los Angeles Times:

  • The Planned Parenthood in Columbia, Missouri is indefinitely suspending abortions – again:

PETA equates eating Thanksgiving turkeys with eating human babies

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is well known to use sensationalism to get noticed.

North Carolina judge: Viewing ultrasound can psychologically harm women

At least 20 states have passed laws that require ultrasounds for women seeking abortions.

The ultrasound provision could compel “an unwilling speaker to […]

Betty Ford’s pro-abortion legacy

Loughner, Obama, the Left: All mad (and did EMILY’s List’s incendiary, prophetic email incite the violence?)

In the days following the Arizona shootings, I was repulsed by the gross, shameless, respectless, baseless political fodder the Left made of the tragedy, even before the blood of the victims had dried on the pavement. There is no dignity Left in America, pun intended. The hatred of what conservatives stand for has consumed them. […]

Arkansas abortionist who killed 20,000 babies dies of leukemia

In a 2005 puff piece, the Los Angeles Times reported Arkansas abortionist William Harrison “estimates he’s terminated at least 20,000 pregnancies.” That averages out to 645 abortions a year since Harrison began committing the act in 1974. So he added about another 3,225 babies to that statistic before retiring in May of this year after […]
