Abortions are expensive, so taxpayers should fund them

by Kelli Abortions are expensive. A first trimester abortion costs an average of $470. A second trimester abortion at 20 weeks costs an average of $1,500. So what do you do if you can’t afford an abortion and you definitely can’t afford a baby? If you happen to be one of the 12 million women […]

  • Americans United for Life board member Monique Chireau was quoted in a piece at the New York Times, but AUL says the NYT failed to report some pertinent information:

    Abortion data in the United States is VOLUNTARILY reported by abortionists – and some states don’t report at all.

    In contrast to most important health indicators – births, deaths, cancer, HIV, STDs, etc. – there is no national reporting law requiring that abortions or their complications be reported to national health officials or agencies. Our model legislation has been designed to address this void. And to require women and girls be given all the information available before having an abortion or taking a life-ending drug.

Abortion enthusiasts promote illegal abortions

During the last week of May abortion proponent Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traversed southern Texas and upper Mexico to film footage for an upcoming documentary, Trapped.

Trapped will “look at the impact of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws in the southern United States, and their disproportionate effect on women living in poverty.”

There are currently no abortion clinics in the Rio Grande Valley, which borders Mexico. The nearest one in the U.S. is 230 miles north in San Antonio.

The group filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Misoprostol is available only by prescription in the U.S. and can only be dispensed by doctors for abortions. But it can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico.

After the purchase, NNAF tweeted photos, along with instructions on how to use Misoprostol illegally to self-induce an abortion…

  • At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal details the perfect storm swirling in Australia (as well as the United States) where empirical evidence on the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link is confronted with an ideology which seeks to suppress the data:
    Melbye, Brinton, and the rest of the NCI coterie deny the validity of their own data (as well as data from all over the globe), data that time and time again substantiate the ABC link. Their sole reason for denying the data in case-control studies (which are retrospective analyses) is the assertion that women who have had induced abortions are more likely to recall them, or report them if they have breast cancer. Dr. Janet Daling who included in one of her studies a test of this putative bias, studied women with cervical cancer and found absolutely no recall bias in her cases or controls. That makes sense because nearly all cervical cancers are caused by human papilloma virus. Janet Daling also publishes with the deniers….

    The issue is the legality of induced abortion and what the frightening specter of breast cancer fifteen or twenty years later might mean. In other words, it’s scientists denying scientific data because of a political agenda.

Planned Parenthood captures abortion monopoly in Texas

Planned Parenthood abortion monopoly in TexasUPDATE 7/24, 5:20a: We got great news yesterday, that the abortion rate in Texas has dropped by 13% since November, when the new pro-life law began taking effect. This represents 9,200 babies saved from abortion!

7/23, 7:32a: On September 1 a new pro-life law will take effect in Texas that requires abortion clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers, abortionists to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of the clinic, and the abortion pill RU-486 to be dispensed per FDA protocol.

And on that day Planned Parenthood will seize control of the Texas abortion market, since it will at that point own six* of the eight remaining abortion clinics.

Stanek weekend question: What flavor ice cream would Planned Parenthood be?

zombie-ice-cream-truck for planned parenthood abortion industry leader

Yesterday, liberal site Wonkette revealed that even abortion supporters subliminally connect Planned Parenthood to abortion, despite all their conscious denials, when it posted the above photo, labeled “zombie-ice-cream-truck” with the following article, which got it in a bit of trouble with Planned Parenthood:

Nancy Pelosi: “Don’t mess with the children”

by Carder As you probably know by now, that when it comes to the children from my standpoint, I’m like a lioness…. Just don’t mess with the children, okay? ~ Pro-abortion House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) advocating for the humane treatment of illegal immigrant children crossing the border into the United States, CNS News, […]

Pro-life photos of the week: Green-eyed monster of choice; police protecting abortion

Last week I noted the youthful pro-life glow so evident at the Supreme Court  when we were celebrating the Hobby Lobby decision that a photo of one of the our groups ended up in Cosmopolitan.

Pro-life movement doesn’t kill its young

Dave Weigel at Slate also noted the phenomenon - with a twinge of jealousy perhaps? “The abortion rights protesters ran the square, with their most camera-friendly interns and staffers lofting signs….”

So here’s another – of many – exuberant victory shots, this one via Reuters. (click all photos to enlarge)…

Pro-life activists celebrate Hobby Lobby decision, inhibiting abortion

Police protect abortion

On the flip side, Reuters posted another photo steeped in irony – police protecting Planned Parenthood, the United States’ largest abortion provider, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s buffer zone decision. This ruling freed pro-life advocates to once again approach mothers planning to kill their babies with a message of hope and help.

I expect this photo will end up in the Abortion Holocaust Museum some day…
