Pro-life blog buzz 4-3-15

  • Right to Life of Michigan says Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari, who is now retired and no longer licensed, “unlawfully left thousands of patient files unattended at [his] former abortion clinic in Flint.”
  • Pro-Life NZ believes New Zealand’s population decline can be attributed to the country’s legalized abortion rate:

    New Zealand is experiencing a demographic decline, which is a real problem confronting governments in Asia, Russia and Europe; an aging population and too few babies born to support them in the future.

  • Wesley J. Smith recalls the agonizing death of Terri Schindler Schiavo ten years ago. Terri was not in the process of dying naturally when her nutrition and hydration were removed, and Smith takes issue with those who try to say her death was peaceful, not painful.
  • At Stand True, Bryan Kemper also recalls Terri Schiavo’s death and the wide range of people affected by her plight:

    I talked to many of the behind-the-scenes media people who were obviously shaken by this tragedy. I saw people from all different walks of life and political and religious backgrounds taking a stand. There were many non-Christian people there in support of Terri, and dozens of handicapped people from a group called Not Dead Yet. I even spent time in prayer with the Rev. Jesse Jackson as he came to help the family and speak out for Terri. I never in a million years would have believed that I would sit in a room praying with Randall Terry, Jesse Jackson and Sean Hannity.

  • Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life reports that a bill is once again being introduced to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions. After a similar bill passed in 2011, it was vetoed by Governor Mark Dayton:

    After 18 years of taxpayer-funded abortions, Minnesotans have funded more than 69,000 abortions at a cost of $21.5 million, according to a just-released report from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). Taxpayer-funded abortions numbered almost 3,400 in Minnesota in 2013; nearly all of those abortions were elective….

    Polls continue to show that most Minnesotans and most Americans are opposed to taxpayer funded abortions, yet they continue to be forced to pay for them.

  • ProLifeBlogs links to Operation Rescue’s report on an ambulance call – the second one this year – to Family Planning Associates in Bakersfield, California.
  • Secular Pro-Life continues their series on abortion clinic websites, this time exposing The Downtown Women’s Center in Portland, Oregon, which appears to claim abortion is so safe that there has not been a single death from this procedure since it was legalized in 1973:

    Not a single death from abortion since it was legalized in 1973? That’s demonstrably false. Setting aside the deaths of the preborn, twelve women died from legal abortions in the U.S. in 2008 alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

    Perhaps Downtown Women’s Center’s ambiguous statement only meant to claim that there has never been a death due to legal abortion in Oregon. It didn’t take long for me to find one: Loretta Morton, a 16-year-old who died of an abortion-related pulmonary embolism in 1984. Although I’m unable to access her death certificate, she apparently died in Multnomah County, Oregon (which includes Portland). Several years later, her death was mentioned in a scholarly article in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Columnist slams “pro-life with exceptions” position

imageThis is the bottom line: if you believe an unborn baby is a human being, you cannot, in intellectual honesty, allow an abortion exception for rape or incest.

Republicans do this all the time, and it drives me nuts. They deserve to be called out on it, as Sean Hannity was by a Democrat guest on his program not long ago.

Here’s the thing: rape and incest are horrible, horrible crimes. I can’t even begin to put into words how horrible. To be pregnant not by choice and in horrible circumstances is a scary thing. It’s unfair.

But can you really say, “Well, this life is less deserving of a chance because it came into being through something unjust?”

The last thing you do to fix injustice is cause more injustice. The justice should be enacted on the person who committed the crime. No one should be killed or have less of a chance of life based on how they came into this world.

It’s horribly unfair to say anyone doesn’t deserve to live because of how they came to be. That’s putting preconditions on someone. It’s so judgmental that a liberal shouldn’t be able to handle it.

And a conservative shouldn’t, either.

Planned Parenthood lying about ability to “provide appropriate care” to abortion survivors

Arena2CrashCartUPDATE 1:25: LifeNews.com has the complete statement, which reiterates that Planned Parenthood is capable of “providing emergency care,” which is again, false, unless PP is equipped to treat preemies.

12:28p: In follow-up to Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow’s shocking contention last week that the fate of abortion survivors should be left to “the woman, her family, and the physician,”  Planned Parenthood gave Sean Hannity this statement yesterday:

In the extremely unlikely event that the scenario presented by the panel of legislators should happen, of course Planned Parenthood would provide appropriate care to both the woman and the infant.

That Planned Parenthood responded at all means the heat brought on by Snow’s statements condoning infanticide became intolerable. PP’s preferred response is to ignore bad press, such as is often seen when Live Action releases a new exposé.

That aside, PP’s statement contradicts Snow’s repeated claim to different lines of questioning that the decision whether an abortion survivor lives or dies should be up to the mother and doctor, both of whom are invested in the latter outcome.

In addition, it would not be possible for any PP to “provide appropriate care to… the infant” unless it had neonatal resuscitation equipment, meds, and personnel trained to provide emergency care to preemies, which I happen to know is no easy task. I’m confident no PP in the U.S. has a neonatal crash cart (above right) and nursing staff certified in Neonatal Advanced Life Support. Click to enlarge sample algorithm…

resuscitation-centre-250x250This brings me to a suggestion I’ve made for several years that, in follow-up to state and federal Born Alive laws, legislators should propose a law requiring abortion clinics that commit late-term abortions to have neonatal resuscitation equipment on the premises, which would also have to include a baby warmer (left), and personnel trained in neonatal resuscitation.

Florida legislators should immediately add this amendment to HB1129.

Planned Parenthood has now hemmed itself in on this, making it nearly impossible to oppose such an amendment, since it has implied it already has such mechanisms in place.

Obama vs. Santorum: Again, who’s the extremist on abortion?

I spoke at two pro-life events over the weekend and both times had shocked people approach me afterward to say they had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 having no idea he supported abortion, never mind infanticide.

It certainly wasn’t for our lack of trying that the masses remained ignorant about Obama’s radical abortion advocacy, which he has taken to the point of blocking a bill to protect abortion survivors. The fusion of Obama mania and mainstream media cover-up kept them in the dark.

But three years later the masses have become skeptical of Obama, giving pro-lifers a second chance to expose him.

What could go wrong with free birth control?

These entitlement debates are serious. When we get down to the bottom line of what we’ve been doing already in Medicaidthis is how I paid for my abortions.

This Medicaid government intrusion into the healthcare industry – coming out of Washington and then mandating all this stuff on the states – it is utter confusion and people’s lives are at stake as a result. So yeah, I would prefer that she does not come into these inner cities and pass this stuff. And I prefer that Planned Parenthood move out of those neighborhoods as well.

Colmes quitting Hannity

Per Fox News yesterday:

Alan Colmes will relinquish his role as co-host of Hannity & Colmes at the end of the year….
Colmes said, “I approached Bill Shine (FNC’s Senior VP of Programming) earlier this year about wanting to move on after 12 years to develop new and challenging ways to contribute to the growth of the network. Although it’s bittersweet to leave one of the longest marriages on cable news, I’m proud that both Sean (Hannity) and I remained unharmed after sitting side by side, night after night for so many years.”

Colmes will continue to have a presence on FNC as he will serve as a liberal commentator on a variety of… programming, including Foxnews.com’s The Strategy Room and continue hosting his radio program, The Alan Colmes Show on… a division of Fox News Radio. He will also begin developing a weekend program.
