  • Dr. Gerard Nadal has posted an incredible comparison between Planned Parenthood and Allstate at his blog, Coming Home. In a recent ad in the Wall Street Journal, Allstate informed readers about the dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex, a part of the brain which “plays a critical role in teens’ decision-making, and understanding of future consequences. Problem is, it doesn’t fully develop until their 20s.” This is a significant factor in the high rate of teen car accidents. Dr. Nadal writes…
  • Allstate tells us what has been widely known in neurophysiology and psychology for years: The center in the brain responsible for forming judgments about behavioral consequences does not form fully until the early 20’s. Allstate cites sobering statistics about the accident-prone nature of 16-year-olds, while [PP] is pushing aggressively for teaching children as young as 10 to be sexually active and to use contraceptives.
    If giving a 16-year-old the keys to the car gives us pause, what sane adult would hand condoms to those of similar age, much less 10-year-olds? The medical folks at [PP] are all too aware of the dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex and its developmental timeline. In fact, they’re banking on it, literally.

  • ProWomanProLife takes us back to the time when even Planned Parenthood understood abortion. From a 1952 PP pamphlet, 1st spotted by David Schmidt at
  • Is [birth control] an abortion? Definitely not. An abortion requires an operation. It kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it….

    Today they claim the “products of conception” are not a baby. So were they wrong then, or are they wrong now?

  • I always say the young people will clean up the mess my generation started. Be inspired and encouraged… our youth are pro-life. Check out the Pro-Life Youth Congress:
  • Vital Signs links to a speech by Lord Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury and current President of the London School of Theology. Carey challenges Christians to become more assertive in living and proclaiming their faith or watch their heritage dismissed and their religious freedoms further curtailed. “If we behave like doormats,” he warns, “don’t be surprised if we are treated as though we are. It is time to return to the public square.”
  • Wesley Smith has an article on the Netherlands, where a movement for doctor-assisted suicide based solely on age is gaining strength.
  • Not Dead Yet highlights Jacob Appel’s mini-rant in the Huffington Post and his recently published essay which supports allowing parents of seriously ill or disabled children to request that their children be killed. Even more alarming is his advocacy that fear of potential suffering rather than parental consent should be the determining factor.
