BREAKING: 93 abortion clinics closed in 2013

breakingOperation Rescue has posted a year-end report on the number of abortion clinics that closed in 2013, and the news is good.

OR, which hosts AbortionDocs.org and tracks abortion clinic comings and goings, reports a whopping 87 surgical abortion clinics and six medical abortion clinics closed in 2013, for a total of 93.

Radicals push for forced abortion of pregnant 11-yr-old Chilean rape victim

belenIf abortion were legal in the country of Chile, an 11-yr-old girl known as “Belén” would likely still be enduring rape by her mother’s 31-yr-old boyfriend.

Belén was recently discovered to be pregnant (now almost 15 weeks) when visiting her grandmother, who alerted authorities. The truth eventually tumbled out that the bf had been raping Belén since she was seven (some reports nine), threatening to kill her and her little brother if she told.

Belén’s mother “shocked Chileans… when she defended him saying his relationship was consensual,” quoting the Associated Press.

So today’s the big day, the culmination of recent pro-life efforts in Texas to ban abortions after 20 weeks and enact stricter abortion industry regulations. From the Associated Press:

Media helps Democrats distort abortion debate

The Associated Press tells us that the “GOP-led House on Tuesday passed a far-reaching anti-abortion bill.” But don’t worry, Politico adds. It is “largely symbolic: The bill will be dead on arrival in the Senate.” … The Democrats’ ill-fated gun restriction push was never a “symbolic effort” or “far-reaching,” was it? Coverage of the Newtown, […]

Four reasons why media isn’t covering Gosnell mass murder trial

UPDATE 4/16, 9:50a: The Atlantic has posted 14 possible reasons for the media blackout.

4/11, 4:34p: Living in Chicago, I’ve observed press coverage up close on three of the most notorious mass murderers ever apprehended: Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Richard Speck.

Speck tortured, raped, and murdered eight student nurses in Chicago in 1966. Dahmer murdered 17 boys and men in the Milwaukee/Chicago area between 1978-1991, keeping and eating some of their body parts. Gacy raped and murdered at least 33 boys and men between 1972-1978, burying many in the crawl space of his Chicago suburban home.

In each case the press tripped over themselves to recount every morbid detail, anxious to feed the public’s fascination with the macabre (click to enlarge)…

“Incredible acceleration… whole new level of attack… designed to gut Roe”

Even though in my post, “Pro-life March Madness: “Sweeping… hurtling… astonishing display,” I wrote about the vast array of pro-life legislation passing in the states, I was still struck when reading through my google alerts over the weekend just how much we are suddenly accomplishing, as if a log jam has been broken. Here is just a sampling of headlines from the past week. Click to enlarge…

AP: “Abortions are typically performed in utero”

As Kelli spotlighted in today’s Quote of the Day by Mark Steyn (also noted by Matthew Balan at Newsbusters), the mainstream media has for the most part gone missing in reporting the murder trial of late-term Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

Gosnell, his wife Pearl, and eight employees stand accused of murdering seven newborn abortion survivors and one mother.

Not only has MSM gone missing, when it does report on this horrendous story, it often gets important details wrong or makes inexplicable gaffes.

For instance, journalist MaryClaire Dale reported in a March 20 Associated Press story:

“Pro-life” congressman has abortion-prone past

Things were not going well between us and it was a mutual decision. I don’t think that it was easy for either one of us. I think it was a very difficult and poor choice and I think that there are probably regrets both ways. ~ 2001 divorce testimony of Republican Tennessee Congressman Scott DesJarlais, who […]
