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 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:
