Highlights from pro life blogs......

MN Concerned Citizens for Life explains how state funded human cloning can become law in  their state on July 1st as the two yr. ban sunsets. Efforts to continue the ban were included in the omnibus bill that was recently vetoed by Gov. Dayton. Unless special language can be included in the final budget, MN can see legalization of  human cloning and at tax payers' expense. Testifying in favor of cloning and tax funding was the  U of MN.

Mommy Life  takes exception  to a recent  comment  that ..." Catholicism/Christianity were most compatible with the Democrat Party because we should provide for the poor." She points out that providing and caring for the poor does not mean handing our money to the govt. for them to decide how to spend it but to provide personal "conservative/self-sacrificing/lifetime commitment." She points to conservative talk show host, Laura Ingraham,  who has proudly announced that she has adopted a third child.
"I'm thrilled to announce that I have adopted a new baby boy. Nikolai Peter (13 mo's) joins Maria (6) and Dmitri (3). We are blessed."

Parenting Freedom lists the reported abnormalities  that sentenced these babies to death by their the UK. Why is this important? The pro life community waged a 5 yr battle to get their Dept. of Health to reveal these statistics.
"Julia Millington, spokeswoman for the ProLife Alliance, said: 'This is a great victory for transparency and freedom of speech and we are delighted that full information about the justification for late abortions is now being made available in the same detail as it was in 2001."
Congratulations for staying after them.

The Culture Warrior links to an article in the WSJ touting  a new noninvasive blood test for pregnant women to find out as early as 9 weeks pregnancy if they are carrying a Down Syndrome child.  Instead of applauding this discovery, we should be very wary. Culture Warrior points out the following ...

"Scary stuff really, because this will make the eugenic screening of people with Down syndrome even easier to carry out...[S]ome members of the Down syndrome community have said they fear the new tests might prompt women to terminate their pregnancies based on faulty or incomplete information. Hold on, so are they saying that it’s okay to abort a baby as long as it definitely has Down syndrome?"

Culture Campaign reports a wonderful trend
" Russian lawmakers, worried about a falling birth rate, passed a law on Friday that abortion advertisements must carry a health warning." This report says that the new law that is expected to pass will require that abortion advertisements  to carry a health warning. " Maybe we can learn something from Russia.

The Anti Abortion Gang discusses posts on pro choice blogs on the choice of words between babies/fetus and loss due to miscarriage or abortion. Their  bottom line is the mother's wishes takes dominion over the right to life of the unborn and the terminology has no bearing.  

The Abstinence Clearinghouse Blog applauds the decision of the Catholic  University of America in Washington D.C. to return to single sex dorms. They state that the "ethical challenges" of binge drinking and "hooking up" influenced this decision.  Amazingly, a George Washington law professor is suing them for sex discrimination.

Abortion in Washington  continues to put the heat on their  local NPR station for ..."False and Misleading Story on Vitae Caring Foundation." They have filed a formal complaint with the Washington News Council.
