  • LTI’s Scott Klusendorf recently had a conversation with a woman who is personally pro-life but can’t understand “how anyone could tell a woman who is raped that it’s wrong to have one.”

Pro-life March Madness: “Sweeping… hurtling… astonishing display”

2013-03-27_1651

If abortion proponents condemned 2011 as “the year of abortion restrictions… mark[ing] a sea change for abortion rights,” and 2012 as “an unmitigated disaster for abortion rights,” I can’t imagine what they will say about 2013.

In 2011 there were a record 92 pro-life laws enacted in the states, followed by the second highest number, 43, in in 2012. This year has already seen at least 14 pro-life bills become law, according to Mailee Smith, Staff Counsel for Americans United for Life, so we are on track for another banner year.

But in 2013 we are not only seeing a high volume of typical pro-life legislative fare, we are seeing passage of pro-life legislation on steroids, the likes of which has never been observed in 40 years of legalized abortions throughout the U.S.

Stanek weekend question: Thoughts on first-ever passage of personhood amendment?

Embarrassing CapitolMarch 22 was historic for the pro-life movement. Quoting Huffington Post:

North Dakota became the first state on Friday to pass a fetal personhood amendment, which grants legal personhood rights to embryos from the moment of fertilization. The state House of Representatives voted 57 to 35 to pass the amendment, after the Senate passed the same measure last month.

The measure will now appear on the November 2014 ballot [JLS note: governor did not need to sign], and voters will be able to accept or reject it. If it passes, it will amend North Dakota’s constitution to state that “the inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.” The amendment would ban abortion in the state, without exceptions for rape, incest or life of the mother….

There was another first, most encouraging. According to LifeSiteNews.com:

Newsweek article on Personhood movement riles abortion proponents

A June 25 article in Newsweek about the Personhood movement is shaking up the pro-abortion community. Just read a sampling of the 315 comments and counting that have poured in since it was crossposted on The Daily Beast since yesterday.

Warning to pregnant pro-choicers: Stop treating fetuses like people

But if you really want to out-pregnant all the rest, the Daily has your trend: Pregnant woman are Photoshopping sonograms onto their naked stomach glamour-shots. (Picture Demi Moore’s famous and oft-repeated Vanity Fair cover pose. Now picture Demi’s smooth and tanned belly with a fetus on it.)…

  • Wesley J. Smith posts the latest on a study of children conceived via IVF. Research shows a 37% higher risk of birth defects – and scientists can’t find the reason for it.

Taking misleading media to task on personhood

In 1989, the Supreme Court ruled… that language alone cannot be used to justify the regulation of abortion. In other words, calling unborn human beings “persons” under the law does nothing to prevent the legal abortion of these “persons.” … If Roe were overturned, it would not have the effect of making abortion illegal. It […]
