NRLC ups ante and pushes new “Dismemberment Abortion Ban” of 12-wk-old babies

EXECUTION

You may have heard of the barbaric medieval practice of drawing and quartering, as described by historian William Harrison†in 1557:

The greatest and most grievous punishment used in England for such as offend against the State is drawing from the prison to the place of execution upon an hurdle or sled, where they are hanged till they be half dead, and then taken down, and quartered alive; after that, their members and bowels are cut from their bodies, and thrown into a fire, provided near hand and within their own sight, even for the same purpose.

This is how Scottish leader William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson in Braveheart) was put to death.

And it pretty much describes†a Dilatation and Evacuation abortion, wherein the abortionist reaches into the uterus blindly with forceps and starts grabbing and twisting off body parts of a†living baby. Click to enlarge…

The Personhood split, Part II: Strategy

Aside from their structural variations, Personhood USA and National Personhood Alliance at first seemed†to have similar goals – until the November 4 election.

At that time both the Colorado “Definition of Person and Child” Initiative and††North Dakota “Life Begins at Conception” Amendment failed, by 65% and 64%, respectively.

The Personhood split, Part I: Structure

988-BreakupOn June 14, 2014, came the news:

Georgia Right to Life President Daniel Becker today announced the formation of a new national pro-life organization, the National Personhood Alliance, a confederation of faith-based, pro-life organizations and leaders who believe pursuing Personhood is essential to protecting all innocent human beings in the 21st†century.

Reading that I became confused, because last I knew Becker was working for Personhood USA, a group that sounded an awful lot like this new group.

NRLC prez reacts to Miss America’s Planned Parenthood internship

by Carder It would be a tragedy if someone who is looked up to by many young women actually buys into the Planned Parenthood abortion agenda. Unfortunately, most people in the country donít know that Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider. This will cast a shadow on her entire reign. ~ National Right to […]

Democrats for Life walks back endorsement of pro-abortion candidate

When last week Live Action blogger Kristi Burton Brown called out Democrats for Life of America for endorsing Virginia pro-abortion Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine, she received this response from DFLA Executive Director Kristen Day:

We support Chairman Kaine because of his record and work with DFLA. While Governor, Tim Kaine signed the Choose Life Life license plate bill in law. We were proud to work with the Governor to ensure the bill was passed and critical funds could be used to support crisis pregnancy centers. He also signed in to law the Pregnant Women Support Act introduced by Senator Phil Puckett and cosponsored by then Republican Senator Ken Cuccinelli. While Chair of the DNC, he supported pro-life Democrats and his policies help elect pro-life elected officials.

This despite the fact that Kaine’s website states:

Pro-life news brief 10-23-12

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • In California, a woman has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly trying to kill the unborn child of a woman who testified against her husband, a convicted murderer.
  • The New York Times covers the abortion debate in Great Britain:

    With hindsight, perhaps the most surprising thing is how long abortion has been off the political agenda in Britain. An intensely divisive political issue elsewhere, the subject rarely makes the front pages.

    All that changed this month, as a series of senior Conservative members of Parliament, from the prime minister down, indicated that they supported reducing the period in which abortions are permitted.

Yesterday the U.S. House Judiciary Committee approved a late term abortion ban in the nationís capital, where abortion is legal for any reason until the moment of birth. The vote was 18-14, split on party lines.

Congress to vote on federal sex-selection ban TOMORROW; make calls TODAY

In a surprise move, House Republicans announced this past Friday they would call for a vote on a federal ban against sex-selective abortion, aka the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, H.R. 3541*, tomorrow, May 30.

PRENDA will be considered under “suspension of the rules,” meaning no amendments can be added. The bill must be voted on as is, straight up or down, and a two-thirds majority will be needed to pass it.
