Pro-life blog buzz 8-16-13

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
  • At Secular Pro-Life, Frank Ludwig investigates the frequency of infanticide occurring in abortion facilities:
    Abortion rights campaigners continue to claim that Gosnell was an isolated case, but there are multiple indications, such as the mentioned statements of Melanie Green, Jill Stanek, [TX abortion Douglas] Karpen’s employees, Planned Parenthood and Dr. Emily’s assistant, among many others, that the gosnelling of newborn children is a common method of dealing with failed abortion attempts, in some cases even against the wishes of the mother.
  • At Stand True, Bryan Kemper shares ten things students can do to speak for the preborn at their schools:
    It is time for us to shine the light on this darkness and be a witness in our schools. This generation must be willing to stand and expose the lies of Planned Parenthood and free young people from the bondage of their deadly cycles.
  • Michael J. New points out two recent instances of mainstream media getting it “mostly right” on abortion. He also breaks down some recent abortion polling data among professing Catholics.
  • ProWomanProLife links to an appalling story about an adoptive mother (with a Master’s degree in Special Education), who has had two of her special needs children removed from her care because she had placed them on a gluten-free, dairy-free diet under the supervision of her doctor. See video here.
  • ProLife NZ points out the use of the term “royal baby” used by the media to describe George, the son of Prince William and Kate, before birth – and what that might mean, both for pro-lifers and pro-choicers.
  • Right to Life of Michigan highlights a First Things article in response to a Washington Post editorial decrying the mandating of standards for abortion facilities and doctors. George Weigel at First Things writes:
    In many states, abortuaries are not required to meet health and safety standards required of the local McDonald’s or Wendy’s. After testimony in the Gosnell case depicted a foul, cluttered, ghoulish “clinic” in which basic sanitary standards were massively violated, how can anyone reasonably suggest that the case for protecting women by enforcing proper sanitation and safety standards for surgical procedures is “weak”?
    How can anyone reasonably suggest that there is a “weak case” for requiring that those who perform those procedures have the minimal professional credentials of other surgeons and doctors? How can anyone plausibly and conscientiously claim to promote “women’s health” by resisting such regulations?
  • ProLifeBlogs features an Operation Rescue report of another ambulance transport (this time with the patient needing “advanced life support”) from a “filthy” Virginia abortion mill that has a “history of unsafe conditions.” The state recently passed a law requiring inspections:
    The problems at Falls Church Healthcare are more evidence that a safety crisis exists at abortion clinics across America where shoddy, hazardous practices akin to those found in Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia “House of Horrors” are the norm, not the exception.
