  • Clinic Quotes shares an admission from the pro-choice side regarding post-abortion trauma:

    Rosemary Candelario, director of Massachusetts Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, on why pro-choice groups often claim that abortion does not contribute to emotional trauma for women:

    “I think the fear in the [abortion rights] movement is if we admit abortion is hard for some women, then we’re admitting that it’s wrong, which is totally not the case. I’ve heard from women who are having problems dealing with their abortion who are still ardently pro-choice.”

Noise intensifies as early voting on ABQ 20-wk abortion ban begins

GreetingsFromAlbuquerqueEarly voting on the first local ban in the country on abortions past 20 weeks began in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on October 30. It will run until November 15, with Election Day on November 19.

Albuquerque is currently a late-term abortion magnet, as it is home to abortionist Curtis Boyd’s Southwestern Women’s Options, where elective abortions are committed “through 28 weeks” and “later” for maternal/fetal indications.

This ban would set a dangerous precedent for abortion supporters. They are already fighting a losing battle in their attempts to extinguish pro-life fires among the states, but their troubles would grow exponentially were they also forced to deal with hundreds or thousands of local municipalities.

Perhaps this is why Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action has gotten involved:

Planned Parenthood spends $1M+ to defeat pro-life VA gov candidate

mcauliffecuccinelliPlanned Parenthood Votes reported Friday that it spent nearly $1.1 million on a new anti-[Ken] Cuccinelli ad purchase that left the [federal] SuperPAC with only $73,746 to pay its remaining bills totaling $59,919.

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, has called Cuccinelli’s defeat her “top priority.”

  • Americans United for Life shares a press release detailing notable pro-life legislative successes this year.
  • At ProWomanProLife, Andrea Mrozek discusses why she believes the Pill is still so popular despite it being “anti-feminist”:

    I believe it is because it is very much promoted in med schools which look to pharmaceuticals for solutions. Doctors are schooled first, later wined and dined by pharmaceutical companies. They are not schooled or wined and dined by Creighton practitioners, for example.

  • At Secular Pro-Life, Frank Ludwig investigates the frequency of infanticide occurring in abortion facilities:

    Abortion rights campaigners continue to claim that Gosnell was an isolated case, but there are multiple indications, such as the mentioned statements of Melanie Green, Jill Stanek, [TX abortion Douglas] Karpen’s employees, Planned Parenthood and Dr. Emily’s assistant, among many others, that the gosnelling of newborn children is a common method of dealing with failed abortion attempts, in some cases even against the wishes of the mother.

Pro-life news brief 7-19-13

  • It’s funny how Reuters decided to investigate the absurd claim which was repeated non-stop that only 5 clinics in Texas would stay open after pro-life legislation passed. Why they didn’t investigate these claims while the legislation was being debated and making national news is anyone’s guess:

    Twenty-six states have laws that require abortion clinics to meet varying levels of hospital standards, according to the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights. Pennsylvania, Virginia and Missouri passed strict health and safety rules similar to Texas, it said.In those three states, however, most clinics were able to stay open after the laws passed, some by reallocating dollars to comply with building upgrades, according to abortion providers and state health department officials interviewed by Reuters….

    Elizabeth Nash, state issues manager for the Guttmacher Institute, which favors abortion rights but does research cited by both sides, said the new law will have an impact in Texas but maybe less than the worst fears.

    “Clinics will close,” she said. “But I can’t say we are going to go down to six.”

    Only one clinic has closed in Virginia since a new law was implemented there earlier this year, the state health department said. No clinics have closed in Missouri because of a tough law passed there in 2007, abortion provider Planned Parenthood of Kansas and mid-Missouri said.

  • ProLifeBlogs links to an article by Dr. Miriam Grossman discussing how “today’s sex ed curricula are based on the widely-accepted teachings of depraved human beings”:

    [I]n 1964 Dr. Mary Calderone founded the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS)… with seed money provided by Hugh Hefner….

    She told parents, “Children are sexual and think sexual thoughts and do sexual things… parents must accept and honor their child’s erotic potential.”…

    Once I understood who the founders were — [Alfred] Kinsey, [Mary] Calderone, [Wardell] Pomeroy, [John] Money, and others — I understood how we got to today’s “comprehensive sexuality education.”…

    These men were pedophiles. It was in their interest to see children as miniature adults who enjoyed sexual contact, and had the right to consent to it, without other adults, or the law, interfering.
