  • The UK’s Sun has a piece on a mother who decide to keep her child after her RU-486 abortion failed:
  • “I thought being sick was a side-effect to the pills,” she recalls, “but they gave me a scan.
    “And there on the screen, the doctors could see the baby, with his heart still beating strongly. In fact, I had morning sickness. For some reason, the pills hadn’t worked….

    “I was distraught. It had been a very emotional decision to have the abortion in the first place. Now I just felt numb with shock. I couldn’t believe it.”
    And worse was to come.
    “I was told to come back the next day for another abortion. But, as the pills hadn’t worked, this time I would need an operation under anaesthetic. I was so upset I burst into tears.”
    Later that night, Lucy realized she could not go through with it.
    “Although I hadn’t seen my baby on the scan, just knowing his heart was beating made him a baby,” she says. “I began thinking how hard he was fighting to stay alive. And I knew I couldn’t go through with it.”

  • Shannen Coffin replies to Elena Kagan’s response to questioning about her ACOG statement re-write. It’s amazing how Kagan was able to absorb the opinions of the ACOG experts without meeting with them and then re-write the ACOG statement in such a manner that helped President Clinton and encompassed their unspoken opinions.
    As always, RH Reality Check has a hilarious response to this controversy. Apparently, Kagan has such a big heart, she didn’t want the ACOG to release what they actually wrote, because her statement better reflected what the experts thought (even though she had no contact with them).

  • Via Mary Meets Dolly comes news that the book Never Let Me Go has been made into a movie. The book is about a group of cloned human beings who eventually have their organs harvested. View the trailer:
