- University of Michigan Students for Life share their experiences with the setting up of a Cemetery of Innocents display. In their interactions with people, some hearts were changed, but others were just plain confusing:
I talked with an old couple who, at first, I believed to agree with me. They said they were Catholic and pro-life. But then they went on to say that they were proud supporters of Planned Parenthood. Then they went on to say they were pro-abortion because they “value all human life.”…They denied the truth of the footage of Live Action, and refused to even accept the challenge I gave them of reading pro-life literature.
- Star Studded Super Step discusses the power in the post-abortive man’s testimony by noting Alabama legislator Ed Henry’s (pictured left) recent public disclosure of his past involvement with abortion:
[A]dvocates of legal abortion are just fine with men speaking up about abortion – when they’re in favor of it. It’s only when they seek to voice their opposition to the practice that the “prochoice” lobby attempts to shut them down.As Pro-Life in TN points out, this attempt to silence the message of abortion regret was plainly seen at RH Reality Check, which immediately ran a post denigrating Henry – and in their haste, RHRC got everything wrong, from the photo to the state he represents. Fact-checking took a back seat to the pro-abortion agenda, as it took three days for RHRC to correct its errors.
- Timmerie Millington discusses the HHS Mandate and whether it will unite people of faith:
President Obama and the pro-abortion movement know they cannot defeat a unified Catholic church. They are scared of the Catholic church. Well, guess what? Not only are Catholics saying no to this mandate that directly assaults religious liberties, but people of all faith walks are saying “enough is enough!…The late Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the founding members of pro-abortion organization NARAL who led in legalizing abortion in the U.S. and later turned pro-life said, “We would never have gotten away with what we did if you (the clergy) had been united, purposeful, and strong.”
- Students for Life is reporting vandalism today to the display of crosses on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green:
Early this morning campus police at Western Kentucky University refused to stop vandals from draping condoms on the top of small crosses in the stadium – these crosses, 3,700 of them, symbolize how many unborn children die through abortion each day in the US and were installed by the Hilltoppers for Life group on campus. The vandals were art students who claimed the condoms were part of an art project.” The group had campus approval for this display. Campus police were called but refused to intervene and just stood and watched because the students claimed this was a part of an approved art project of which credit was given.SFL encourages readers to contact Dr. Dennis George to “demand the university apologize to WKU Hilltoppers for Life and to train the campus police that putting condoms on someone else’s crosses is not art or freedom of expression, it is desecration and vandalism.” If an art teacher did, indeed, approve this project, he or she should also be disciplined.
- John Smeaton reports that in the UK, women can now obtain morning after pills by courier after “fill[ing] out an online form to be assessed by a doctor, and the pills will be delivered within two hours.”
- Mommy Life lauds the Vatican for finally taking action against nuns who may embrace social justice but throw the sanctity of human life under the bus.
- Reflections of a Paralytic shares a beautiful Procter and Gamble commercial about Olympic
moms, and says that not only are stay-at-home mothers denigrated by our
society, sometimes working fathers are viewed in a poor light as well:
Being a mother and a father is hard work, to be sure, but it’s more than just a “job”. It’s a vocation. It’s who they are. They don’t get paid for it and there’s certainly no “quitting time.”So, thanks to all you mothers and fathers for all you do and the sacrifices you make to shape our future, one immortal unrepeatable individual at a time!
