  • At New Wave Feminists, our latest blog addition, Destiny says that her son, for whom she chose life when she experienced an unplanned pregnancy as a teen, was “the best thing that ever happened” to her. Rather than ruining her life, he made her strong:

    Had I aborted him it would’ve been out of nothing but fear and panic. I would be living in bondage and regret to this day. Through bringing him into this world though I became a feminist, an activist, an advocate for women whose shoes I’ve traveled in. And because of that unplanned pregnancy I found out I was stronger than I ever knew I was. In my opinion, that’s what true feminism is all about.


  • At thirtyone8, guest blogger Lydia Mead notes why Christians in particular should not wait to feel “called” to do something about abortion:

    The other day… I was asked what I’d been doing before our child arrived. There was a hushed silence and the conversation moved quickly on to other topics when I explained how I’d worked in a crisis pregnancy centre, receiving calls from abortion seeking women and girls. When you mention the A-word amongst your good Christian friends or church folk, you’ve overstepped: there isn’t any place for a verbal exchange on the brutal reality of abortion amongst polite, Christian people. The gut feeling you get from your church is – if you’re going to go out and do something awkward and uncomfortable, then it should be evangelism. We’ll pray for you to go and do that in India or an African country; we’ll even send you some money now and then. But abortion’s too horrible to entertain as a thought, let alone to discuss or do anything about….

So, yeah, it’s hard. It’s not a fun topic. It’s not much fun being out in the cold, praying about abortion. To you pre-born advocates out there – keep working and fighting, and remember that God will give you more love and courage as you persevere.

And to everyone else: don’t wait until you feel ‘called to the ministry’ of fighting for the pre-born, or to ‘feel in your heart’ that you care about abortion. That day won’t come if you’re waiting for it. Get out there and get involved – the passion will come to you on the job.

  • Priests for Life’s Fr. Frank Pavone asks pro-lifers to sign a letter addressing the “troubling contraditions” in comments made by President Obama at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast. He intends to personally deliver the letter to the White House:

    Among the troubling aspects of the speech, Fr. Pavone points out that the President, while upholding consistently a policy of abortion on demand, states, “the killing of the innocent is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.”And, while trying to force Americans to violate their faith through the HHS mandate, the President states in his speech, “Central to [human] dignity is freedom of religion — the right of every person to practice their faith how they choose.”


  • ProWomanProLife notices that even doctors are beginning to come out in opposition of using ultrasound to determine the sex of preborn children, due to gendercide:

    In a new joint policy statement, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada and the Canadian Association of Radiologists also say it could be considered unethical for private, commercial clinics to offer “entertainment” ultrasounds purely for the purpose of creating “keepsake” videos for expectant parents. The position statement comes amid mounting concerns that in Canada, people are using ultrasound to determine the sex of a fetus early in pregnancy and to have it aborted if it is a girl.

  • The Leading Edge points out how “[t]he circle of death is now almost complete in Belgium” beginning with the legalization of unfettered abortion and ending with the legalization of euthanasia for children – and New Zealand could be next.
  • Wesley J. Smith says a federal judge has blocked the use of a certain drug for lethal injection in one state, yet this is the same drug used in Oregon for assisted suicide. It makes one wonder how groups like the ACLU keep things straight. After all, they support abortion and assisted suicide but oppose capital punishment by lethal injection.
  • Stand for Life recommends The Discovery Institute’s documentary, The War on Humans, which “discusses the tremendous push for animal and plant legal rights while diminishing human exceptionalism”:
