  • University of Michigan Students for Life share their experiences with the setting up of a Cemetery of Innocents display. In their interactions with people, some hearts were changed, but others were just plain confusing:

    I talked with an old couple who, at first, I believed to agree with me. They said they were Catholic and pro-life. But then they went on to say that they were proud supporters of Planned Parenthood. Then they went on to say they were pro-abortion because they “value all human life.”…

    They denied the truth of the footage of Live Action, and refused to even accept the challenge I gave them of reading pro-life literature.

  • Star Studded Super Step discusses the power in the post-abortive man’s testimony by noting Alabama legislator Ed Henry’s (pictured left) recent public disclosure of his past involvement with abortion:

    [A]dvocates of legal abortion are just fine with men speaking up about abortion – when they’re in favor of it. It’s only when they seek to voice their opposition to the practice that the “prochoice” lobby attempts to shut them down.

    As Pro-Life in TN points out, this attempt to silence the message of abortion regret was plainly seen at RH Reality Check, which immediately ran a post denigrating Henry – and in their haste, RHRC got everything wrong, from the photo to the state he represents. Fact-checking took a back seat to the pro-abortion agenda, as it took three days for RHRC to correct its errors.

  • Timmerie Millington discusses the HHS Mandate and whether it will unite people of faith:

    President Obama and the pro-abortion movement know they cannot defeat a unified Catholic church. They are scared of the Catholic church. Well, guess what? Not only are Catholics saying no to this mandate that directly assaults religious liberties, but people of all faith walks are saying “enough is enough!…

    The late Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the founding members of pro-abortion organization NARAL who led in legalizing abortion in the U.S. and later turned pro-life said, “We would never have gotten away with what we did if you (the clergy) had been united, purposeful, and strong.”

  • Students for Life is reporting vandalism today to the display of crosses on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green:

    Early this morning campus police at Western Kentucky University refused to stop vandals from draping condoms on the top of small crosses in the stadium – these crosses, 3,700 of them, symbolize how many unborn children die through abortion each day in the US and were installed by the Hilltoppers for Life group on campus. The vandals were art students who claimed the condoms were part of an art project.” The group had campus approval for this display. Campus police were called but refused to intervene and just stood and watched because the students claimed this was a part of an approved art project of which credit was given.

    SFL encourages readers to contact Dr. Dennis George to “demand the university apologize to WKU Hilltoppers for Life and to train the campus police that putting condoms on someone else’s crosses is not art or freedom of expression, it is desecration and vandalism.” If an art teacher did, indeed, approve this project, he or she should also be disciplined.

  • John Smeaton reports that in the UK, women can now obtain morning after pills by courier after “fill[ing] out an online form to be assessed by a doctor, and the pills will be delivered within two hours.”
  • Mommy Life lauds the Vatican for finally taking action against nuns who may embrace social justice but throw the sanctity of human life under the bus.
  • Reflections of a Paralytic shares a beautiful Procter and Gamble commercial about Olympic moms, and says that not only are stay-at-home mothers denigrated by our society, sometimes working fathers are viewed in a poor light as well:

    Being a mother and a father is hard work, to be sure, but it’s more than just a “job”. It’s a vocation. It’s who they are. They don’t get paid for it and there’s certainly no “quitting time.”

    So, thanks to all you mothers and fathers for all you do and the sacrifices you make to shape our future, one immortal unrepeatable individual at a time!

  • Wesley J. Smith points out a controversial article akin to the recent one in support of infanticide – but this time, the argument is that dehydration should be the default “treatment” for people diagnosed with persistent vegetative state (PVS), which is misdiagnosed about 40% of the time.

    The article’s author argues that the quality of life of such individuals, coupled with the monetary resources needed to care for them, should outweigh their right to life.

  • Suzy B has details on a newly-released study linking abortion and depression.

  • Star Studded Super Step points out society’s (and the mainstream media’s) sympathy for disabled animals – like Til, the earless baby rabbit from Germany, (pictured left) – in contrast to the lack of sympathy for disabled human babies. There was a huge uproar when this rabbit was accidentally killed, but there is no uproar over the thousands of babies purposefully murdered each day by abortion.
  • ProLifeNZ has some thoughts on the wrongful birth lawsuit won by the parents of a four-year-old girl with Down syndrome:

    [T]hese parents weren’t really suing about a wrongful birth, instead they were suing over the fact that they deem their daughter to be a wrongful person, someone who actually should have been terminated in the womb because of her Down syndrome.According to a survey published in the American Journal of Medical Genetics nearly 99 percent of people with Down syndrome say they are happy with their lives – one of the great tragedies of our age is that more of the rest of us can’t also be happy with their lives as well….
  • Moral Outcry shares some of Kirk Cameron’s comments on abortion from an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, who is stunned – stunned, I tell you – that Kirk could be pro-life without exceptions.
  • Reflections of a Paralytic notes how what used to be science fiction with regards to cloning animals and humans (in movies like The 6th Day and Never Let Me Go) isn’t as fictional as it used to be.
  • Right to Life of Michigan links to a Detroit Free Press article with information on the lack of abortion clinic oversight in Michigan. Recent testimony revealed:

    [O]nly four of 32 surgical abortion facilities in the state are currently licensed….In at least two instances in the last 10 years, the death of Michigan patients from abortion complications were not reported to the state….

Final Update: Ask Them What They Mean by “Choice” Day

UPDATE 1/30, 7:12a: We blindsided and overwhelmed NARAL last year with our “Ask Them What They Mean by ‘Choice'” Day, but this year the group was more prepared. They signed up 1/3 more blogs to participate and tried to keep up with our counter-tweets. 

But we forced them to think about what “choice” really stands for, whether they wanted to or not. And NARAL will never ever again be able to euphemistically celebrate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade online unanswered.

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank noted NARAL’s “Blog for Choice Day” in his list of “carnivals” surrounding the terrible anniversary.

Thanks to all who blogged, tweeted, and Facebooked their groups to remind them what “pro-choice” actually means.

  • Star Studded Super Step’s Andy Moore has birthed a new website, AbortionWiki.org, which intends to compile information on the global abortion industry into one online reference (a Wikipedia of sorts about abortion). A new advisory board for the site has been formed, consisting of many “all-stars” in the pro-life movement. Find and bookmark!

  • At Catholic Herald, Barbara Curtis recalls her own story of transformation from a pro-abortion feminist (viewing her “right to choose” as “a sacrament”) to a pro-life mother of 12. Regarding feminism, she writes:

    Perhaps it’s time to wake up and slap some cold water on your faces. It’s time to stop the hypocrisy, to sever the ideals of feminism — dignity for women, equal status, equal opportunity, equal pay — from what has become a religious and one-dimensional devotion to death.

    From Barbara’s MommyLife blog also comes this funny graphic on co-sleeping:

  • US News and Hot Air report on ousted Ohio Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus, who is now suing the Susan B. Anthony List because he believes they contributed to his election loss. From US News:

    Now there are lots of things said by outside interest groups during the heat of political campaigns that turn out to be untrue. What the SBA List said about the so-called pro-life Democrats who gave Obama the votes he needed to pass healthcare just doesn’t happen to be one of them….

    Driehaus’s suit… goes directly at the heart of our First Amendment protections and criminalizes what is at least a difference of opinion….

    What is equally curious, however, is why Judge [Timothy S.] Black has allowed the case to move forward and why he did not recuse himself from it since… he apparently is the former president and director of the Planned Parenthood Association of Cincinnati. As seeming conflicts of interest go this one is a real humdinger.

  • ProWomanProLife remarks on this week’s World Contraception Day, pointing out that despite the avalanche of government-funded comprehensive sex ed instruction, distribution of condoms, and dispensation of birth control pills, “unsafe sex” has increased:

    Young people across the globe are having more unprotected sex and know less about effective contraception options, a multinational survey revealed on Monday. [The study] reports that the number of young people having unsafe sex with a new partner increased by 111 percent in France, 39% in the USA and 19% in Britain in the last 3 years.

  • Our newest blog addition, Right to Life of Michigan, summarizes new polling information from Gallup regarding life issues. Most people favored restrictions and regulations on abortion, especially after the 1st trimester, but the majority also said Roe v. Wade was a good law – which means most people really don’t know Roe:

    This is where pro-lifers and the importance of educating the public on pro-life issues need to come in. The main reason 58% of the public supports Roe v. Wade is because vast swaths of citizens have no clue what [the law] did.

    If they knew it overturned abortion laws in 50 states and set up a framework which prevents states from banning late-term abortions, support for Roe would plummet.
