Pro-life blog buzz 7-19-13

  • ProLifeBlogs links to an article by Dr. Miriam Grossman discussing how “today’s sex ed curricula are based on the widely-accepted teachings of depraved human beings”:
    [I]n 1964 Dr. Mary Calderone founded the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS)… with seed money provided by Hugh Hefner….
    She told parents, “Children are sexual and think sexual thoughts and do sexual things… parents must accept and honor their child’s erotic potential.”…
    Once I understood who the founders were — [Alfred] Kinsey, [Mary] Calderone, [Wardell] Pomeroy, [John] Money, and others — I understood how we got to today’s “comprehensive sexuality education.”…
    These men were pedophiles. It was in their interest to see children as miniature adults who enjoyed sexual contact, and had the right to consent to it, without other adults, or the law, interfering.
  • Secular Pro-Life shares a wonderful graphic exposing the fallacy of the pro-”choice” position:
  • ProLifeBlogs also links to Operation Rescue’s information about the real reasons behind the closing of Nova Healthcare (abortion mill) in Fairfax, Virginia. It was not because of new state regulations, as touted by the media, but because of the facility’s failure to pay rent and their “shoddy treatment” of women:
    In reality, the Nova abortion business was a shoddy operation that left women vomiting in common areas on a daily basis according to court records, and having to be carried out unconscious, rushed to emergency rooms, and even landing one woman in the morgue.
    To compound the troubles, Nova was a deadbeat tenant that created a nuisance, endangered women, ran off other tenants then refused to pay their rent.
  • Christina at RealChoice takes issue with the Huffington Post’s claim that the now-closed Nova Healthcare gave “exemplary care” to women:
    Is this “exemplary medical care”? To be treated by a doctor who doesn’t examine you or take your history before performing surgery? To have your records screwed up so that nobody can be sure exactly what happened? To be discharged from the facility when you’re still too weak to even walk?
  • ProWomanProLife features a Maclean’s article in which controversial British columnist Barbara Amiel (pictured left) writes about the late-term abortion she had in 1965. She refers to it as murder and wishes she had been informed of fetal development, but stops short of saying she regrets her decision:
    And until I looked at fetal development charts for this column, I never understood what was inside me: a tiny being with limbs and fingernails that might have felt discomfort as the doctor’s instruments murdered it. I couldn’t wait another four months and have the child adopted, let alone climb up a tall tree to find a safe home for it. Though I fully support legal abortion (as a dark necessity not as some precious human right) I rue our need for it.
  • At Reproductive Research Audit, Rebecca G. Oas gives details on a study which “found a ‘strong independent relationship’ between a history of abortion and the risk of a subsequent preterm birth,” vindicating “many years of work to draw attention to the link, despite a lack of attention from the medical community and outright denial from pro-abortion advocates.” But not to worry! In light of this, abortion advocates believe new and better methods of aborting will take care of the risk factors which they denied existed in the first place.
  • My Drop in the Ocean contrasts the demeanor of late-term abortion fans and pro-lifers seen in Texas last week during the Senate debate on a pro-life bill.
  • Right to Life of Michigan is seeking 350k registered voters to sign a petition to be submitted within 100 days to the Legislature to opt out of taxpayers funding of abortion under Obamacare. The petition is necessary because the governor originally vetoed the bill passed by legislators. RTL MI’s rallying cry is, “Abortion is not healthcare, and we are not going to pay for it”:
