  • Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards has an editorial at CNN which claims that making the birth control pill available over the counter would “push women back to 1950s.”

    Compare this recent editorial to a Huffington Post piece written by Richards in 2013 where the FDA’s decision to make emergency contraception available over the counter for women of all ages (including teen girls) was described as “wonderful news” and meant that there would be “no barriers, no shame.”

  • It appears that Ohio abortionist Raymond Robinson may have settled in a lawsuit against him as the plaintiff has dismissed the case:

    Attorney James Gutbrod said a confidentiality agreement reached between Knights and the Akron Women’s Medical Group prohibits him from commenting on whether a settlement was reached….

    Knights, 23, said in her lawsuit against the clinic and Dr. Raymond Robinson that she sought an abortion in February 2012 because she has a genetic disorder in which she has a double uterus with individual cervices. The condition put her at risk of death if she delivered a child, she said.

    Despite undergoing the abortion procedure, she discovered a short time later during an emergency room visit that she was still pregnant. Seven months later, she safely delivered a 6-pound baby girl, her second child.

  • In her recently released book, Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis claims her unborn daughter Tate Elise was suffering and this is one of the reasons she opted for an abortion:

    At some point in the almost two weeks of second and third and fourth opinions and tortured decision making, I could feel her little body tremble violently, as if someone were applying an electric shock to her, and I knew then what we needed to do. She was suffering …”

    An unborn child in the second trimester was suffering physical pain?

    That’s a strange assertion coming from Davis who claimed just the opposite when she famously filibustered against the pro-life law in Texas.

    At about the 13 minute mark of the video below, Davis begin discussing a paper in which the authors claim fetal pain probably isn’t possible until the third trimester:

    She continues in this video:


    So Davis’ position is that Texas shouldn’t ban late second trimester abortions based on unborn children feeling pain because they don’t feel pain but I had a late second trimester abortion because my unborn child felt pain and I didn’t want her to suffer any more.
