  • At National Review Online, Wesley Smith wonders why Planned Parenthood  has to close so many clinics in Texas due to the new law requiring the abortionist on call to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles:

    If abortion was really only 3% of PP – as the organization claims – would a safety restriction of this kind really force 12 PP clinics to close?”

    If they were serving women for routine medical needs, STI testing and giving out free birth control, this would not be needed. Time to get your talking points freshened up. It’s all about abortion, abortion, abortion.

Pro-life news brief 11-29-12

  • At Live Action, Rebecca Frazer points out the ridiculousness of Planned Parenthood of Indiana promoting themselves as an adoption referrer:

    Yes, you read that right. Planned Parenthood is excited that they have contributed to a whopping twelve adoptions in six years. If we do some simple math that comes out to an average of two adoptions a year.

    Last year alone, Planned Parenthood of Indiana performed 5,250 abortions. 5,250. That means that if 2011 was an average adoption year, Planned Parenthood helped with one adoption for every 2,625 abortions they performed. Perhaps they should send their adoption counselors back to job training.

Why PRENDA won but lost… but won

Yesterday the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, a bill that would ban sex-selective abortions in the U.S., garnered an overwhelming majority vote in the House, 246-168.

But PRENDA still failed. Why?

Simply, the vote procedure used (“Suspension of the Rules”) required a two-thirds majority to pass.

Why not go for majority vote?

If such an overwhelming number of congresspersons were known to support PRENDA, why didn’t Republican House leaders follow a route to passage that only required a simple majority?

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Wesley Smith notes a recent Journal of Medical Ethics article in which the authors argue that infanticide should be legal and label killing newborns “after-birth abortion.” Overheard: An Abortioneer describes her own clinic – and it doesn’t sound that nice: I think some clinics have entire abortion appointments […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Here’s some horrid humor from the Abortioneers blog as Desembarazarme discusses how she joked about the possibility of aborting her friend’s planned pregnancy: Her pregnancy was incredibly planned, and I knew it was in the works. When she disclosed her expectant status, I screamed and hugged her, and […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Planned Parenthood of Arizona says it will no longer challenge AZ’s 2009 pro-life law which restricts abortion in a variety of ways:– Requiring a woman seeking an abortion to meet in person with a doctor 24 hours before the scheduled abortion.– Allowing only physicians to perform first-trimester surgical […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat A NPR blog has statistics on the percentage of OB/GYNs who provide abortions: 97% of OB-GYNs have encountered patients wanting an abortion, but only 14% of the doctors perform them, according to a study published today in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology. That finding suggests a smaller percentage […]
