  • The New York Times has an article on the illegal abortion controversy in Thailand where 2,000 aborted children were found in a Buddhist temple:Lanchakorn Janthamanas, 33, has acknowledged that she made regular deliveries of fetuses to the temple after collecting them from several illegal clinics. She has also acknowledged having performed illegal abortions.

    But her mother said it was not such a simple matter to place blame. “I am proud of my daughter for her contribution to society,” said the mother, Sombat Sinotho, 60, speaking of the abortions she had performed. “Only those who have not faced the problem of an unwanted pregnancy tend to view her as evil.”

    Ms. Lanchakorn said she had rescued 8 fetuses that had survived the procedure and was now raising them as her own adopted children. “I commit sin every day,” she said, “so if the kids won’t die, there’s no need to kill them.”

    An Aljazeera video on this story, below:

  • A Planned Parenthood in Columbia, MO, has resumed performing abortions after 3 months of no abortions due to staffing issues.
  • One of the leader’s of Lansing’s 40 Days for Life campaign shares his experience at the recent burial for 17 aborted children whose remains were found in an abortion clinic dumpster.
