Carla Stream, our lead moderator at JillStanek.com, has written an article for Pro-Life Action News on the importance of sidewalk counseling and prayer at abortion facilities. The Third Annual National Sidewalk Counseling Symposium will be in Minneapolis from July 25-27.
Stand True shares the thoughts of four first-time sidewalk counselors. One sums up her thoughts:
"We’re talking about lives on the line here, a matter of life and death. What will you do today to make sure these little ones live to enjoy tomorrow"
Suzy B highlights a pro-life picket which took place today at the Irish Embassy in D.C.. The goal was to voice opposition to the attempt to legalize abortion in Ireland through the “guise of protecting pregnant women who are considering suicide”: Thanks to its pro-life laws, Ireland has one of the lowest maternal mortality rates in the world—it is one of the safest countries for a woman to give birth. Additionally, the number of Irish women who reject abortion and carry their babies to term is remarkably high.
Wesley J. Smith shares news of a child who, once thought to be in a persistent vegetative state, has been successfully treated with umbilical cord stem cells: A child with cerebral palsy who suffered a cardiac arrest and became – they thought – permanently unconscious, appears to have been successfully treated with his own stored umbilical cord blood stem cells….
This heartening story raises several issues, among which are: First, ethical stem cell research offers tremendous hope. Second, unconscious child patients are sometimes dehydrated to death based on the belief they can never recover.
Secular Pro-Life features an article by Kelsey Hazzard and William Saunders, which shows that while the media attempts to portray an extreme pro-choice view as mainstream, it isn’t: The reality is that abortion advocacy groups only represent the tiny sliver of women and men who want abortion to be legal for any reason and through all nine months of pregnancy. Most American women reject that extreme view.
According to a May 2013 Gallup poll, 57% of women say that abortion should be illegal in all (20%) or all but a few (37%) circumstances. This is very close to men’s views, within the margin of error.
ProWomanProLife discusses the media’s apparent bias in labeling children with Down syndrome as “Down syndrome children,” as if that is the only thing you need to know about them.
Right to Life of Michigan features a video of the equipment in the Gosnell House of Horrors, released by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office:
