- Down on the Pharm dissects an article in Ebony, written by Deacon Emma Akpan, who “bemoans the lack of church preaching to promote birth control and abortion” and believes abortion is a good thing for the Black community – despite the fact that, already, “Black babies are aborted at a much higher rate than any other demographic group in the U.S.” Akpan reportedly works for Planned Parenthood in North Carolina as a community organizer.
- Big Blue Wave says France recently decided to allow midwives to perform abortions due to the closing of many abortion facilities. The government has also decided to impose abortion quotas on hospitals:
The big issue was money. Abortion is poorly remunerated in France. At least, it’s seen as a money loser. Hospitals had to balance their budgets, and the abortion ward was seen as dispensable.
I have a hunch these Regional Health Authorities will have trouble meeting their quotas. If money is what was stopping hospitals from performing abortions, and they don’t give them money, they will not do abortions.
- Jivin Jehoshaphat says NARAL Colorado is taking heat for a disastrous Tweet chiding legislators for a bill to protect unborn victims of homicide. They not only slip up and call pregnant women “mothers,” they then discount the presence of the preborn life completely. Just weird:
For pro-choice groups, the unborn child can never be the victim. For them, if a woman is attacked and her unborn child dies, there is no homicide. There is just an attack on the mother.
- Kansans for Life says pro-aborts are in great distress over the passage of the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act in Kansas and Oklahoma. Amanda Marcotte is one of them, and she isn’t happy:
Her headline reads “Anti-Choicers Are Going to Take Away Second-Trimester Abortion Without Much Notice” and though the actual content of her piece is all over the place, her message is clear; she is distressed that a significant abortion restriction is now available to reach the Supreme Court, and frustrated that her side not only has no defense, it can’t even discuss the law’s content for PR reasons.
- Secular Pro-Life is searching for pro-life physicians willing to give their time to help with an important project:
This campaign, which will launch in late May or early June, focuses on a long-term risk of induced abortion. I can’t reveal all the details yet, but in very general terms, the campaign involves the presentation of medical literature to the public along with personal stories. It’s similar to the Truth and Tips From Former Smokers public health campaigns against tobacco.
We need physicians to review our educational materials for accuracy and endorse the project. (The materials have already been prepared with the help of a wonderful pro-life medical student.) Your name will appear on the campaign website as a physician endorser.
- At Live Action News, Rebecca Downs notes that Hillary Clinton, despite claiming she wants to be a “champion” for “everyday Americans,” has ignored the plight of the most vulnerable among us:
Clinton announced her campaign for President with a video titled, “Getting Started.”
Most notable is the couple featured in the ad at 36 seconds. While the couple appears for roughly six seconds, the woman is visibly pregnant, and the man talks about preparing for the “baby boy, coming [their] way.”
In the ad, Clinton says, “everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.”
However, pro-lifers are concerned that Clinton is leaving some “everyday Americans” out. A Facebook post tagging pro-life activists, Jill Stanek and Abby Johnson, notes that “Mrs. Clinton would support aborting babies at that stage.”
What if the preborn child in his mother’s womb in the ad had not been wanted or planned? Clinton’s politics demonstrate she will not be a champion for him.
