Stories of pro-life activists getting abortions don’t ring true

Emily-Yoffex400x300Guest post by Dr. Michael J. New

Emily Yoffe’s (pictured right) “Dear Prudence” advice column recently included a letter from a “pro-choice” woman who assisted her pro-life activist friend in obtaining an abortion.

The story sounds familiar. Very familiar. In fact, stories about pro-life activists getting abortions mysteriously pop up all the time in pro-abortion literature.

Stanek weekend Q: What if it had been pro-life activists who mailed that “glitter bomb”?

From JournalStar.com, March 5: Lincoln police are investigating who sent a so-called glitter bomb letter to Congressman Jeff Fortenberry’s Lincoln office Wednesday. The glitter was in a standard envelope sent to the office at 301 S. 13th St. and was “unleashed” when the envelope was opened about noon, Lincoln Police Sgt. Brian Agnew said. The […]

Pro-life activists wreak havoc on New Orleans’ pro-abortion peace

Pro-life activists descend on New Orleans to remind abortion crowd, no justice, no peaceThis week 300 members of the groups Operation Save America and Abolish Human Abortion have descended on New Orleans for OSA’s annual gathering and to remind the pro-abortion world, “No justice, no peace.”

Holding prayer meetings by night and prayer vigils by day, the pro-life/abolitionist activists have been busy – protesting two abortion clinics, a Planned Parenthood construction site, the homes of two abortionists (Mary Gardner and Roshanda Dean), the day care business of an abortion clinic manager (yes, you read that right), a pro-abortion church, and more. I can’t keep up. They also held a wake for an aborted baby.

First Supreme Court decision of new session a victory for pro-life activists

Well, hey now, there’s still a bit of justice in the land.

In 2005 pro-life activist Steven Lefemine, pictured right, sued the police department of Greenwood County, South Carolina, for stopping he and his band of 20 pro-life activists with Columbia Christians for Life from displaying graphic images of abortion at a busy intersection. Police maintained the group was creating a disturbance after receiving several complaints.

When police threatened him again at another protest, Lefamine sued in 2008 on the basis that his First Amendment right to free speech was being violated.

Lefamine won his case in federal district court. However, the judge denied Lefemine’s request for reimbursement of attorney fees. This despite the fact that, quoting the Los Angeles Times:

Pro-life sting exposes Voice of Choice as all talk

On June 5 Voice of Choice’s Todd Stave received an email complaining that pro-life activist Tony Massey was harassing caterers delivering orders from Udi’s Foods in Denver to the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains mega-abortion clinic.

The reason I know the date Stave received that email is because in actuality it came from Tony, who decided to conduct a little reconnaissance mission to test Voice of Choice’s potency.

Stanek late weekend question 4-1-12: Is turnabout fair play?

Unfortunately, my traditional Saturday morning posting of the weekend question got derailed by hackers, so here is my late weekend entry.

I wrote March 30 about a flier being distributed in the neighborhood of Germantown, Maryland, late-term abortion clinic owner Todd Stave, pictured right, which depicts him as equivalent to a Nazi. The fliers included Stave’s home phone number.

Now Stave is “turning the tables,” according to a supportive Washington Post columnist:

Abortion proponents profile pro-life leaders and activists

Well it didn’t take long for my new son-in-law to stir up trouble in the U.S. I couldn’t be prouder.

He would be Kiwi Andy Moore, who launched AbortionWiki.org a couple months ago, about the same time Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman launched AbortionDocs.org.

And look at the hornets they have stirred. Pro-life friend Leslie forwarded me this email she received a couple days ago. Click to enlarge…

Maryland pro-life activists get $385,000 settlement for illegal arrests

This is great closure. In August 2008 I reported that Maryland State Police had illegally arrested 18 pro-lifers, including two minors, who were participating in a constitutionally protected picket. Well, the subsequent lawsuit has been settled, and hooray for our side. From the Baltimore Sun, March 6 (albeit getting the number of pro-lifers wrong):
