NPR ignores woman killed by clinic it showcases in abortion promo piece

2015-03-06_1130This is truly shocking, either a new low in yellow journalism or an incredible display of shoddy research.

The slant of the March 3 NPR article by Jennifer Ludden was in its title: “Abortion restrictions complicate access for Ohio women.”

Ludden worried “a steady stream of abortion restrictions over the past four years has helped close nearly half the state’s clinics that perform the procedure,” then went on to blame the state, not substandard clinics or abortionists.

Ironically, Ludden chose Preterm abortion clinic to showcase the hardships abortion clinics and aborting mothers must endure:

Inside an abortion clinic in India

by Carder It may be hard for a Westerner to understand why she was willing to be photographed at such intimate moments, in a country where people say nasty things about women who have abortions. Her doctor, Simi Mahesh, explains that there is a bond between doctor and patient: “They do trust me, and that […]

Why a novelist chose to write about a fictitious abortionist

by Carder The main starting point for writing this book - using abortion as the medical subject that I was looking at - was that as a novelist, I was very interested in interrogating what it is that all of us feel we can’t say to people. And the idea that I came up with was that […]

Shocking graph: Planned Parenthood’s market share now 1/3 of all U.S. abortions

2014-03-17_1222American Life League’s STOPP reported in February:

Here are some comparative numbers based on the Guttmacher report entitled “Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2011,” and Planned Parenthood’s annual reports, showing Planned Parenthood’s ever-increasing share of the U.S. abortion market:

Planned Parenthood committed 31.6% of abortions nationwide in 2011
Planned Parenthood committed 23.3% of abortions nationwide in 2006
Planned Parenthood committed 16.5% of abortions nationwide in 2001
Planned Parenthood committed 11.3% of abortions nationwide in 1996
Planned Parenthood committed 8.5% of abortions nationwide in 1991
Planned Parenthood committed 6.2% of abortions nationwide in 1986

The graph below shows that Planned Parenthood abortions continue to soar, even as national abortion rates have declined and leveled off.

  • Clinic Quotes has a chilling reminder of the history that we should not forget. Did you know the company that manufactured the poison gas used in Nazi gas chambers is the same company that obtained the patent for chemical abortion drug RU-486?

Real reason abortion providers oppose ultrasounds: 78% change minds

In Planned Parenthood’s world, allowing a woman to see an image of her baby on the ultrasound screen is a “dangerous agenda.” Many women who have abortions do not know the truth about fetal development…. The language of abortion counselors is often crafted carefully to avoid any reference to the baby. Even the term “fetus” […]

DOJ continues to lose FACE

2013-01-14_14001/15, 7p: The poll is closed. 91% of you think the DOJ is trying to intimidate pro-lifers.

1/14, 3:08: (See poll at bottom of post.)

Last week President Obama’s Department of Justice lost yet another Freedom of Access to Clinics case when it settled with pro-lifer David Hamilton.

More on Attorney General Eric Holder’s harassment of Hamilton below.

But for those keeping count, here is the losing list of FACE cases brought forth by the Obama DOJ so far (including one not even listed on the DOJ site, US v. Parente):

Catholics Ryan and Biden debate abortion

Last night Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan engaged in the one and only vice presidential debate of the 2012 election cycle.

I thought Biden lost hands down, coming across as a snide, rude, condescending, blowharded buffoon, while Ryan appeared presidential and gave measured, polite, substantive responses.

As somebody said on one of the radio talk shows this morning, watching the debate was like watching someone try to carry on an intelligent conversation with a drunk at a bar.
