  • Generations for Life recalls a “first save” anniversary 8 years ago. While sidewalk counseling a Spanish-speaking woman, they found she was an undocumented immigrant who was fearful of being discovered. She had been told over the phone that there might be “something wrong with the baby” and that she should abort or she would be turned in to immigration by the hospital when she delivered. Talk about intimidation!

  • Coming Home notes the presentation of an award to Dr. Frances Oldham Kelsey of NY, the woman “who defeated William S. Merrell Company’s application for thalidomide in the United States by linking the drug to the hideous birth defects it induced in embryos of mothers taking the drug for morning sickness.” The award was presented by FDA commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg, “who helped shepherd the new abortifacient Ella through the regulatory process as merely a ‘contraceptive…’.”

  • Charmaine Yoest at Reasoned Audacity reviews the book Abortion & Life by Jennifer Baumgardner. Yoest says though the book is presented as an “even handed conversation,” it ends up being an “ad hominem argument.”

    The book mentions a current symbol of “reproductive freedom” is angels’ wings, which is meant to indicate the belief that aborted babies are watching over their mothers. Talk about a delusion – that the baby would look kindly at the one who snuffed out his existence.

  • Americans United for Life points out little has changed since the Beijing 4th World Conference on Women in 1995, when pro-aborts sought to declare a worldwide “right to abortion”:

    Abortion advocates attending the Conference fought rigorously to establish a “right to abortion” on demand, but were defeated when governments declared that no “right to abortion” was to be established at Beijing….

    In March of this year, the Commission on the Status of Women took place at the UN in NY…. Pro-abortion groups invaded… to convince delegates that legalizing and expanding access to abortion is the key to improving women’s health and ending maternal mortality.

    Greater access to abortion, however, fails to address the problem of maternal mortality. In fact, countries with the greatest restrictions on abortion have the lowest maternal mortality rates.
