  • Pro-Life Action League reports on the now-closed All Women’s Health in Chicago, run by abortionist Mandy Gittler (who was responsible for the death of Tonya Reaves at a Chicago Planned Parenthood). All Women’s has been accused of scamming women who visited for pap smears and health exams.

  • Judie Brown of American Life League discusses an issue that sometimes separates pro-life activists. She believes pro-lifers should not waste time and resources fighting for laws that force abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. While many pro-lifers rightfully think abortionists fail to meet that standard, and this is a way toexposethem and shut down abortion centers when no physician qualifies, Brown quotes ALL’s Jim Sedlak, who voices an alternative opinion:

    While pro-lifers get caught up in trying to argue for these kinds of laws, statements are made that you would never expect from a pro-life person. In fact, after the Alabama decision, one pro-life leader, who is one of the strongest fighters for life in the country, actually argued that these laws are needed to protect women who are choosing to have an abortion.

    This has brought us a long way from the days when it was clearly recognized that the energies of the pro-life movement were focused on saving the baby, praying for the woman, and finding a way to show women that abortion was not her only solution to her perceived problems.

“Never has so much human suffering condensed in so small a space”

Never has so much human suffering condensed in so small a space. ~ Abolitionist Thomas Clarkson, quoting abolitionist and member of Parliament William Wilberforce, inThe History of the Rise, Progress and Accomplishment of the Abolition of the African Slave Trade, 1808, one year after the trade had been abolished in British empire.

Pro-life news brief 5-30-13

  • Andrea Mrozek writes about the death of notorious Canadian abortionist Henry Morgentaler:

    Abortion is the “choice” in that critical moment in a woman’s life when hope went on holiday.

    This is Morgentaler’s legacy: The death of a child, renamed a choice, and without limit in Canada.

    He deserves neither all the credit nor all the blame, of course. When the Supreme Court of Canada heard the now infamous Morgentaler case in 1988, their intention was not to bestow abortion as an unfettered right. Instead, the court went so far as to acknowledge a legitimate public interest in restricting abortion, and then threw the question back to Parliament which has been holding the ball ever since.

Tasmanian PM: Students “haven’t lived long” enough to protest abortion

I think that people will look at that and think that’s a step too far…. I find it really abhorrent to see the sort of campaign that’s been raised now on a really sensitive issue. I’m concerned to see young kids involved in a debate like this. There was a good point made in some […]

  • 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.

Canadian MP: If we declared fetuses “human beings,” abortion would be homicide

If the legal definition of when one becomes a human being were to be adjusted so that a fetus is declared to be a legal person at some earlier stage of gestation, then the homicide laws would apply. As a necessary consequence, aborting fetal development anywhere in the potentially new adjusted period would be considered […]
