Pro-life blog buzz 8-3-12

from Jill

by Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli
We welcome your suggestions for additions to our Top Blogs (see tab on right side of home page)! Email
  • University of MI Students for Life reflects on a sad day in America on August 1, when the HHS mandate went into effect mandating violating our consciences: Today, the religious liberties of all Americans have been thrown in the trash. And it’s the same trash can where the 3,300 precious babies that will be legally aborted today will be thrown.
  • Timmerie’s Blog has a fact filled post responding to an August 1 email by Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, asking the question,  “Can one little pill change the world?” Timmerie shows how small actions can indeed change the world, and in this case, not for the better. She discusses how history has proven that the admonitions against the pill are true, both physically and spiritually.
  • Secular ProLife is pleased with the response to its latest project,, particularly with the visibility Google is bringing to the topic of abortion and malpractice. Through SPL’s targeted advertising, a search for abortion clinics now brings up its ad, with 2,000+ subsequent hits to the site.t Congratulations on SPL’s hard work and clever use of media to cover this important niche.
  • Moral Outcry has a particularly relevant post up, explaining the difference between the Chick-Fi-A boycott and pro-life boycotts.
  • John Smeaton, SPUC says powerful incentives will keep China’s one-child policy from ending any time soon: It is a source of income for many officials: Officials lose points for every out-of-quota birth in their area and earn cash bonuses for every abortion and sterilisation they enforce … [D]esperate officials resort to forced abortions and sterilisations.

  • Isn’t it interesting to know that sidewalk counseling now its own training conferences? And what better group to train than Pro Life Action League, which made a presentation in Minneapolis in July. Joe Scheidler pointed out that Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, could have been written by pro-life activists, because they use the same tactics.  He also read from a book by pro-abort Patricia Ireland about how paranoid clinic workers are to see sidewalk counselors.  Abortion clinics now configure their structure to discourage interaction.
Big Blue Wave has a post up I’d like to shout from the rooftops.  It details how a Catholic priest asked a parishioner to step down from the parish council after he told the Chicago Tribune he helped lesbian couples conceive via IVF: That might have been the first salvo,” Caruso said. “I wasn’t angry. I really took what he had to say to heart.”
Bottom line: The parishioner repented and stopped his work that violated Catholic doctrine.
Clergy have great influence over people in their church, but many still fear the rejection of man so much they keep silent
