  • ProWomanProLife recommends a blog post by pro-lifer Matt Walsh entitled, “I paid to have babies murdered and all I got was this coat hanger necklace?” Walsh writes:

    Sure, we’d like to give to every worthy charity and needy neighbor, but alas our resources are finite. So… [d]o we concentrate on nurturing, sheltering, clothing, protecting, blessing, and loving our fellow human beings? Or do we negate the need for such things by opting to fund the extermination of the very sorts of humans that might end up requiring our charity, should they be permitted to exist in the first place? Do we feed them, treating them like hungry friends, or do we fumigate, treating them like swarming cockroaches?If the ease and efficiency of the latter option appeal to you, The DC Abortion Fund is here to help….

    [They like] to keep it classy. That’s why they offer a gift to anyone who chooses to donate to their organization: A coat hanger pendant….

    I’m not sure what they were going for, but to me it symbolizes the myth of the “safe” abortion. We pretend that the clinics provide a less hazardous experience than back alleys and coat hangers, but it’s all a charade. A show. A merciless ploy, and women are the victims.

    “Safe” abortions have killed at least 400 women…. A peer reviewed study, published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, found that women who’ve had abortions suffer from an 81 percent higher risk of mental health problems. Worst of all, the suicide rate among these women is tragic and startling.

    Safe? Safe for who, exactly? Safe for the abortionists, I guess.

  • The Passionate Pro-Lifer tells the ending to a story that began over a year ago, when William Costello attacked and injured 69-year-old Everett Stadig, who was collecting signatures for a personhood petition. Stadig ended up with a broken hip, while Costello was arrested. His DNA was then linked to three unsolved sexual assault cases from 2008-2011. (One assault was on a 13-year-old.) Since it garnered little media attention, PPL obtained a press pass and attended all the hearings. The defendant was out on bail but failed to appear for his second day of his trial. He was subsequently found in his apartment of what authorities call an apparent suicide.

TODAY: Religious Freedom Action Day

religious-freedomV2As you know, President Obama is trying to crush our religious freedom by forcing religious employers to provide contraceptives, abortion drugs, and sterilization coverage in their insurance plans.

To that end, several pro-life/pro-family organizations have banded together to synchronize an email/Facebook/Twitter/blog alert to their people, asking them to contact their members of Congress during a two hour window this morning: from 10a to 12p EST, and to tweet during those same hours.

The message to Congress is to support H.R. 940, the Health Care Conscience Rights Act. As Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League explained to his email list this morning:

Abortion supporters now both anti- “choice” and uber- “choice”

Planned Parenthood triggered a massive identity crisis in the pro-abortion world when it announced on February 9 it was abandoning the term “pro-choice.”

I mentioned at the time Planned Parenthood must certainly not have conferred with such groups as NARAL Pro-Choice America before dropping its bombshell.

The1PercentI don’t think abortion advocacy groups appreciate the fact that Planned Parenthood is a billion dollar business. So its decisions will be primarily market-driven, which may or may not be coincide with the best interest of ideological groups – one of the hard truths about the 1%.

Thus, Planned Parenthood basically hung NARAL, et al, out to dry, forcing them to defend their commitment to the word “choice.”

In an interview with Politico today, new NARAL president Ilyse Hogue said her group is doubling down…

  • Judie Brown of American Life League calls out Cardinal Dolan’s hypocrisy in inviting President Obama to the Al Smith Dinner.While Dolan claimed on his own blog that dining with sinners is Christlike and that to disinvite opponents would leave him dining alone, Dolan declined an invitation to offer the opening prayer at a 2009 Pro-Life Wisconsin banquet because Brown (who has publicly castigated bishops) was going to be the keynote speaker:

    On the one hand, he found it problematic that I led and continue to lead a campaign to beseech Catholic bishops to obey canon 915 and deny Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians. On the other hand, he finds it Christlike to dine with the most pro-abortion president in the history of this nation.

Today! Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rallies in 160+ cities

6/9, 8:40a: Fox News provided great coverage of the Rally for Religious Freedom in Washington, D.C.: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8mXdzOPEX8[/youtube] CatholicVote.org has photos from rallies around the country.

Pro-lifers: Crash HHS Women’s Health online town hall this morning

This morning 10a to 11:30a EST the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services will hold an online Women’s Health Town Hall.

This affords pro-lifers a fabulous opportunity to send unfiltered and public messages to HHS, the mainstream media, and the social media world by submitting questions and comments via Twitter and Facebook.

Per HHS’s instructions, submit questions and comments via Twitter by using the hashtag #WomensHealth and also at HHS’s Facebook page. Then watch the town hall live streamed to see if they address any of our concerns (taking bets that they don’t).

Scheduled to on the call are a who’s who of pro-abortion leaders in the Obama administration, including:

Stanek endorses Romney

I have a soft spot for pro-life converts, which Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is. I think pro-lifers could do a much better job of supporting them. I think it is time for that to happen for some of us who have been reluctant about Romney. The fact that he used to be pro-abortion is the major hang-up.

I’ve told the story before of meeting then-gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie at the New Jersey’s Rally for Life in 2009, where he was being maligned by his primary opponent as a fake, a political opportunist. There were even a few boos when he was introduced. Feeling sorry for Christie, who looked a little out of place, I approached his table during dinner, introduced myself, and sat down to offer encouragement for his conversion. He lightened up and talked a mile a minute, describing how he had changed his view on the life issue when becoming a father in the 1990s.

To start out pro-abortion and end up pro-life cannot be an easy process, particularly when one is in the public eye.
