  • At Live Action News, Kristen Hatten discusses “why Kermit Gosnell should be acquitted”:

    I want Kermit Gosnell walking the streets. I want him free because there is nothing he did that is incompatible with a pro-abortion ideology. I want him to serve as a constant reminder that abortion and infanticide are the same thing, and it was the Supreme Court’s idea – supported by around half of the citizens of this country – that some doctors are murderers who get to be free citizens.

  • At New Feminism, Béatrice Fedor describes characteristics she has noticed among those calling themselves “pro-choice moms.”

  • Pro-life Action League says the Planned Parenthood in Wilmington, Delaware (pictured left) has been closed, pending investigation into unsafe conditions:

    Conditions at the Wilmington clinic were described as “ridiculously unsafe” and five women were rushed to the hospital due to complications in the past three months alone.

  • In the Washington Times, Father Frank Pavone describes “how the human conscience dies slowly, one killing at a time”:

    Each of us has a natural psychological and physical barrier to killing someone. In normal circumstances, we just can’t bring ourselves to do it. This is part of our humanity. Killing is easier when one dehumanizes the victim first. Bullies engage in name-calling before beating up their victims. Yet in dehumanizing the victim, the perpetrator dehumanizes himself. So it is with abortionists.

  • ProLifeNZ reports that “[a] New Zealand doctor has been suspended by the Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal from practicing medicine for 6 months after three of her patients were unlawfully prescribed the abortion drug misoprostol.”

  • At Real Choice, Christina Dunigan recalls her experience working with Mark Crutcher to write the haunting accounts of abortion injuries for the book, Lime 5 (pictured right).
  • Pro-Life New Mexico describes an encounter with a post-abortive woman outside Planned Parenthood in Albuquerque, and reminds us that what women need most is to know that we love their babies and them.
  • Vital Signs points out that the language of “life at conception” was always accepted until the advent of certain birth control devices designed to prevent implantation. However, redefining the terms doesn’t redesign the actual science of life.
  • Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life notes Europe’s trend toward eliminating the sufferers instead of their suffering, through euthanasia and assisted suicide:

    Some patients, including many disabled newborn babies, are euthanized even though they have made no request for death. Switzerland, meanwhile, has become a haven for “suicide tourism,” a place where people come, many of them merely disabled or depressed, and are helped to kill themselves.

    Rather than eliminate the suffering—by caring for those who need help, fixing their depression, and so on—Europe is increasingly choosing to eliminate the sufferers. This is disturbing stuff…..

    Even worse… euthanasia followed by organ harvesting has become a reality.

Ask Them What They Mean By “Choice” Day 2013

565600_10200344040269360_2012432767_nUPDATE 1/24, 10:30a: Thanks to all who participated, whether by the many great posts I read on your blogs (links below), or on Facebook, or on Twitter (where the conversation at #Tweet4Choice is still going strong!).

I think our effort this year was particularly impactful given the dust up in the pro-abortion community over the word “choice.”

Thanks again for doing such a great job pushing back on their euphemismistic cover-up of preborn murder.

1/21, 3:10p: In response to NARAL’s Blog for Choice Day, we are sponsoring our third annual Ask Them What They Mean When They Say “Choice” Day – tomorrow.

All online pro-lifers are invited to join in!

Read backstory here.

This year we are expanding beyond bloggers to the online pro-life community at large – you!

Click to join the event on Facebook here.

By doing so you will become part of a pro-life contingent that will challenge abortion supporters tomorrow, January 22, whenever and wherever we see them use the word “choice” online.

If on Twitter, use the hashtag #Tweet4Choice for all tweets tomorrow, which NARAL has designated for its Blog for Choice Day, the impetus for our day.

Thanks to Planned Parenthood we have added fodder for discussion tomorrow. Almost two weeks ago PP announced it was abandoning the term, “pro-choice.” You might want to ask “choice” advocates about that.

Thanks to bloggers who have signed up to blog on what “choice” really means tomorrow. So far they include:

  • Vital Signs links to a Politico article discussing how the Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Internal Revenue Service will all be involved in penalizing churches, businesses, and organizations which choose not to comply with the HHS contraception mandate. Hmm… maybe that’s how they plan to pay off the national debt.

  • 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:
