Clinic Quotes features some interesting survey statistics about post-abortive women: 66% report their lives are worse for the decision, 81% felt rushed into the decision, 93% felt they did not have enough information to make the decision, and 40-50% were wavering and hoping for another option to present itself.
Josh Brahm shares how the pro-life “equal rights argument” is changing hearts and minds on the abortion issue. The argument consists of “asking pro-choice people if they agree that all human adults have an equal right to life” and why.

Jivin Jehoshaphat spots a strange story from Minnesota where a man is being defended for a double homicide in which he killed his pregnant wife and preborn child.

How very interesting. Maybe she read some internal polling showing that Texans aren’t quite with her on the issue:Meanwhile, Davis’ new position is that she only supports late-term abortion in cases to protect the life of the mother, of rape or incest, and fetal abnormalities. The only problem with that statement is that Texas Senate Bill 5, which Davis filibustered for over ten hours in an attempt to defeat, and voted against, did have an exception in it if the life of the mother was at risk.
Kansans for Life reports that Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit against Kansas is moving quickly through the courts. Isn’t it interesting how Planned Parenthood fights against factual information? The lawsuit focuses on Kansas’ 2013 Pro-Life Protections Act, specifically the “first-in-the-nation” requirement that the link to the state “Woman’s Right to Know” abortion information website be positioned on a clinic’s home page….
