- ProLifeBlogs has a Wisconsin Right to Life post on the Obama campaign’s dishonest phone calls to Catholic voters in an attempt to get them to believe Obama doesn’t support abortion and that
Planned Parenthoodis really about “children get[ting] health care and prenatal care.” After promoting abortion ad nauseum to the American public via the Democratic National Convention, this is incredible. But could it be an indicator that abortion isn’t as winning an issue as they expected?
- ProLife NZ shares the horrific story of one mother who was pressured by her physician to terminate her child, prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome. The doctor was high-ranking fetal medicine advisor, Professor Peter Stone
(pictured left), who also happens to have “been extensively involved in
developing screening practices for Down syndrome in New Zealand” and
“trains our medical students at Auckland University“:
- The Road to Roe has an interesting post on Justice Lewis F. Powell’s unexpected vote for Roe v. Wade. Powell was considered a “careful, restrained, lawyerly judge,” but according to reports from Powell’s former clerk, John C. Jeffries,
“he voted his ‘gut,’ which was influenced by his wife and daughters.”
There was also a “sense of momentum” and “lack of antiabortion
sentiment” in the courtroom:
- Reflections of a Paralytic applauds an effective smackdown on the “war on women” meme – from Oklahoma’s pro-life Democrat Rep. Rebecca Hamilton (pictured right):

- At National Review, Michael New
disputes pundits who have claimed that universal health care (such as
MA’s state health care, also known as “Romneycare”) lowers abortion
rates. The reality is that it has little to no effect. In a second post, New describes why anti-abstinence education
contraceptionproponents don’t see the big picture when it comes to teen pregnancy rates.
- ProWomanProLife applauds Canada’s
attempt to open discussion on the issue of when life begins. Though the
measure failed, there are some positive takeaways, according to PWPL’s Andrea Mrozek:
There is a stranglehold on freedom of expression around abortion, a dictatorial attitude that somehow all women are supposed to be fervently pro-choice…. This is simply not the case; women don’t have one mind on this issue, as with so many other issues.
- Mommy Life has video on a young lady with Down syndrome, Sarah Green, who went from cheerleader to Homecoming Queen! Clearly, a Ds prenatal diagnosis need not be a death sentence:
