  • Bryan Kemper discusses the question “Should we leave God out of Pro-Life?” Kelsey Hazzard of Secular Pro-Life (a frequent commenter to this site) gives her thoughts on the blog as well….

  • Generations for Life notes NBC’s coverage of Olympians who have siblings with special needs: Canadian freestyle skier Alexandre Bilodeau whose brother has cerebral palsy, and US snowboarder Kevin Pearce whose brother has Down Syndrome. What great stories for NBC to highlight, especially in a society where prenatal testing leads to the abortion of many special needs children.

  • Thomas Peters catches a tidbit from the Washington Examiner regarding the difference in FL GOP Senate candidates’ pro-life philosophies:
  • Rubio … subtly hit Crist on the issue of abortion. Without naming Crist, he criticized the argument of politicians who claim they are seeking to “change hearts” rather than overturn the controversial Roe v. Wade abortion decision.
    “Senators can’t change hearts, only God can change hearts,” Rubio said. “But senators can change laws.”

  • Americans United for Life discusses the Obama plan and how it changes the “status quo” for abortion in the US:
  • Nancy Ann Deparle, Director of the White House Office of Health Care Reform, made the following statement on abortion.

    The starting point is the Senate bill with the Nelson language. It’s not a perfect proposal, but it was crafted in a bipartisan manner. It’s different from the House, but our effort was to not change the status quo on abortion. I know it’s not ideal, but that’s the starting point we’re working from.

    Her statement that the Senate abortion language was “crafted in a bipartisan manner” is inexplicable. In fact, the Senate abortion language was crafted behind closed doors without a Republican in the room and with no Republican votes.


  • The Passionate Pro-Lifer reports CO Gov. Bill Ritter (a self-proclaimed pro-life Catholic) has funneled millions of state dollars, unconstitutionally, to groups directly involved in abortion, and a judge has allowed it. The decision is under appeal:
  • The governor and other state officials are not at liberty to ignore the will of the people on this matter. CO voters amended the state constitution to prohibit tax dollar subsidies to abortion providers, so it’s the right decision to take this to the court of appeals,” [lead ADF alliance counsel Barry Arrington] said….
    The complaint cited state payments of $18 million to Planned Parenthood and another abortionist, despite a CO constitutional ban on taxpayer funds being used “directly or indirectly” for abortions.
