  • Michael J. New believes other reasons may be behind the U.S.’s declining abortion rate:

    Interestingly, none of these analysts [who claim increased contraception is the reason behind the decline] is willing to consider that shifts in public opinion on abortion may be playing a role. May of 2009 was the first time that a majority of Americans identified themselves as “pro-life” in a Gallup survey. “Pro-life” has outpolled “pro-choice” six out of nine times since the spring of 2009….

    Since the abortion rate is falling while the unintended-pregnancy rate is stable, a higher percentage of women facing unintended pregnancies are choosing to carry their children to term. Data from the Department of Health and Human Services support this, pro-lifers should take heart in it.

  • Live Action News dissects Planned Parenthood’s 2012 annual report, which shows that the organization performed 327,166 abortions – allowing them to maintain their “largest abortion chain” status:

    For taxpayers who don’t want to fund abortions, this should be especially troubling, considering that Planned Parenthood is raking in a whopping $540.6 million in taxpayer funding, or $1.5 million per day. This accounts for 45% of their revenue. Compare that to their other sources of revenue — private contributions, 26%; non-government revenue, 25%; and “other”, 4% — and it is overwhelmingly clear why the abortion industry fights to keep organizations like Planned Parenthood on the government dole. Without taxpayers to leech off of, Planned Parenthood alone would lose half a billion dollars.

  • Can they stop the inevitable? Americans United for Life discusses how SCOTUS is trending  on abortion related cases:

    The Cline case “illustrates momentum for overturning the abuses of Roe. Multiple cases are advancing toward the Supreme Court as it has signaled its willingness to consider the impact of its unrestricted abortion policy on women and their unborn children,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest.

  • Down on the Pharm says that by reducing human life to nothing more than a dollar figure, we are one step away from forced abortions – in America:

    The Congressional Budget Office has announced that if we pass Trent Franks’ bill H.R. 1797 restricting late term abortions, it could add $400 billion to the federal deficit. Philip Hodges at Godfather politics points out that this might be the first time that the politicians ever cared about the deficit, now that it can be used to push abortion.

    CNS News has more on this.

  • In an attempt to further abortion worldwide, the United States and the European Union joined forces at the UN Commission on the Status of Women to ask for the deletion of “a reaffirmation that every human being has the inherent right to life, liberty and security of persons.”
  • Authorities in Minnesota have charged a man with two counts of murder for killing his wife and his unborn child:

    The Dakota County attorney’s office charged Roger Earl Holland, 36, with two counts of second-degree intentional murder – one count in his wife’s death and one in her unborn child’s death. Bail was set at $1 million, or $750,000 with conditions….

    Holland called 911 last Thursday to report finding his wife, Margorie Ann Holland, in cardiac arrest at the foot of a staircase in their Apple Valley apartment, prosecutor James Backstrom said in a news release. Margorie Holland, who was nearly four months pregnant, and her unborn child died at a hospital later that morning.

Why abortion proponents agree they are losing

On this, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Time magazine’s perspective is that legalized abortion is on a losing path. And I haven’t found anyone on the other side who disagrees. Quick example, NARAL’s email heading this morning:

What makes abortion proponents think this gloom and doom, despite their hard-fought presidential victory?

In a nutshell: federalism, the growing pile of state anti-abortion laws….

Ireland’s abortion ban at center of controversy in mother’s death

I don’t do abortions, I’ll tell you right now. … But I’d have to tell the mother, ‘Your baby doesn’t have a chance and to save your life, I have to do this.’

~ Dr. John Coppes, medical director at Austin Medical Center-Mayo Health System in Minnesota, stating his opinion regarding the recent controversial death of Savita Halappanavar (pictured right) in Ireland, CBS News, November 15

The hospital’s refusal to perform an abortion as she was miscarrying allegedly contributed to her death, according to her husband and pro-abortion activists.

The other side of the story, from World magazine, November 16:

Pro-life student incurs wrath of pro-abortion Christian college

Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, is affiliated with the pro-abortion Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.

So while Concordia touts “sending into society thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life,” its definition of “Christian” is at least in part unrelated to the Bible.
