Down on the Pharm discusses the research of a new chemical pill that can induce an abortion and be taken once a month – just in case: They even suggest the possibility of flushing women once per month to be sure that no undesirable embryos are clinging to life in their reproductive tracts. This type of chemical birth control is touted as possibly preferable to the forms which have been designed largely to reduce the possibility of fertilization. 

40 Days for Life prints a letter received from a woman who observed a campaign from a distance and chose life because of it.

Bound4Life shares the powerful two-part testimony of a post-abortive woman who found healing after 8 years of hiding her secret. 

American Life League’s Judie Brown argues that education on important life issues is missing from the Catholic Church. She quotes Cardinal Raymond Burke: We as Catholics have not properly combatted it [the culture of death] because we have not been taught our Catholic faith, especially in the depth needed to address these grave evils of our time. This is a failure of catechesis both of children and young people that has been going on for 50 years. It is being addressed, but it needs much more radical attention.
Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life discusses the killing of preborn babies diagnosed with disabilities:
Two points about the abortion of disabled babies are important. First, ability (or disability) is irrelevant to the worth and dignity of a human being. We do not (or should not) think less of people who have physical and mental handicaps. Parents may not kill their toddler if they learn that she has autism. They may not execute a 10-year-old with spina bifida because they think she would be better off dead. 
Second, it is deeply mistaken to suppose that the life of a disabled person is not worth living. People with disabilities live meaningful and often happy lives. And caring for them, though difficult, is enriching and rewarding, as parents and caregivers attest. 

Live Action reports that a float “which featured the large model of a 12-week-old fetus” will not be allowed at New Zealand’s Alexandra Blossom Festival because of its “anti-abortion” message. Creator Bruce Lietze worked four months on the project. Allowed in the parade will be a statement made famous by Sir Edmund Hillary, which contains profanity. 

A Culture of Life says that euthanasia advocate Philip Nitschke is “tak[ing] credit for higher elderly suicide rate in New Zealand. Nitsche is quoted as saying: As a society we should not be alarmed by this trend… and taking steps to prevent access to new developments in end of life strategies or end of life drugs would be counterproductive, forcing people to use undignified and often ineffective methods.
