- Big Blue Wave points out the reluctance of those on the pro-abortion side of the aisle to state whether or not the human fetus at 20 weeks is, in fact, a human being. First, Nancy Pelosi dodged the question, and then Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland (where late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart kills viable children for a living), claimed that whether or not a 20-week preborn child is human “is not a real issue.”
- At the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, Justina Van Maren gives excellent tips on how to debate the “what about rape?” question when talking to people on the street.
- After Abortion says while the CDC currently acknowledges 12 legal abortion deaths from 2008, “such reporting isn’t always recording what is truly attributable to abortion. Not by a long shot.”
- At Bound4Life, Josh Shepherd reports on 30 things pro-lifers prayed for at OneVoiceDC, an ecumenical prayer gathering that took place the night before the March for Life.
- Clinic Quotes shares the testimony of Carole Novielli, who describes the day she saw abortion firsthand, discarded illegally in a dumpster behind an abortion clinic, along with the records of the abortion patients.
- Down on the Pharm says the UK National Health Service has officially fitted at least 3 10-year-old girls with contraceptive implants:
[T]he long term, progestin only class of BC is strongly associated with osteoporosis. Giving this drug to girls while their bones are still growing is therefore not a good idea.
… Progestin only birth control is also associated with increases in susceptibility to STDs. Etonongestrel is the active metabolite of desogestrel, which gained fame from thrombotic events in so many patients, and the ensuing class action law suits.
- American Life League’s Judie Brown says that for all the talk of “human dignity” in various “death with dignity” circles, it is certainly lacking in our society’s laws surrounding human life from conception to natural death:
[H]ow did we get to a point where international surrogacy and the buying and selling of babies is even a question? Well, human dignity in the era of reproductive technology has disappeared. Today the laboratory is used for mixing babies in petri dishes because would-be parents of any variety are willing to pay big bucks for the resulting child. Of course, first they want certain quality control standards to be applied before they pay for the product.If the buyers reject the chosen item, it’s curtains for you, baby!
Sadly, the old-fashioned way of procreating children involving conjugal relations in marriage has become passé for far too many in this age of turning preborn children into marketable commodities.
This dehumanization of persons robs each one of them of their dignity at the moment human cells, genes, and chromosomes become nothing more than tools in the scientist’s bag of tricks.
