Guttmacher Institute official laments state abortion restrictions

by Kelli The action surrounding abortion restrictions is much more intense than what we were seeing 10 years ago. While the restrictions are somewhat concentrated in states like Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma, 30 states have adopted some sort of abortion restrictions since 2011. It’s not just the South. It’s not just Kansas…. One part of […]

The “secret shame” of abortion in the church

praying_woman_in_churchby Kelli

Leaders in post-abortion recovery ministry say the church remains reluctant to fully face the impact of abortion within their own congregations.

[Post-abortion counselor Kathy] Rutledge said she once gave her testimony to a group of women at a megachurch in the South and by the end, several women were “practically bawling.” Yet, when Rutledge asked about doing a follow-up, the group’s leader said, “None of my women have had an abortion… and even if they did, they don’t need to be speaking about it.”

Abortion industry in crisis: Planned Parenthood seizes control of shrinking turf

Planned Parenthood abortion clinic monopolySince 2010, abortion proponents have acknowledged with increasing frequency and alarm that they think they are starting to lose. Two recent essays reveal new crises they are adding to their growing list:

South by Southwest: Pro-life laws eradicating abortion clinics

Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 10.08.53 AM

There is a mesmerizing time-lapse video at the Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, that in four minutes shows the North’s four-year takeover of the South during the Civil War (screen shots above – view a video clip here).

I was reminded of that video when viewing this GIF from Planned Parenthood. Click on the image to launch…

Claim: Rise in STDs caused by… homophobia?

by Carder With most of these populations, having a sexually transmitted disease from having sex with another man is highly stigmatized. They’d rather not get tested for HIV, syphilis, or whatever. They don’t want it to show up on their records. ~ Professor George W. Rutherford, claiming that homophobia in the South may contribute to […]

How abortion proponents view current pro-life tactics

Robin Marty-As I wrote in my post, “How abortion proponents view the current abortion landscape,” I have developed a collegial relationship with Robin Marty, pictured right, senior political reporter for RH Reality Check.

This past weekend Robin was in Chicago for a National Organization for Women convention, and we got to meet. She had asked if she could interview me for a piece she’s writing.

Through the course of our lunchtime conversation (which she paid for, thanks!) Robin enlightened me on how abortion proponents view current pro-life efforts, particularly since 2010, when pro-lifers began passing laws in unprecedented numbers. Robin agreed to let me share her thoughts. I’m not going to pick them apart, I simply find them fascinating and thought you might, too.

Abortion proponent Ashley Judd: “Making our own babies” is “selfish”

I figured it was selfish for us to pour our resources into making our “own” babies when those very resources and energy could not only help children already here, but through advocacy and service transform the world into a place where no child ever needs to be born into poverty and abuse again…. My belief […]

Are we headed for Civil War II?

Others like Rush Limbaugh, but he only publicized the threats received by portended pro-lifers after. And this is only when MSM and libs picked up on them. I like how Bernie Goldberg framed what’s going on: Portraying pro-lifers and conservatives as violent and racist fits the other side’s narrative. That said, there is something more […]
