Pro Life blog buzz 12-24-13

Judie Brown discusses Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) and warns that what can seem like patient-friendly forms might become your death warrant: 
"POLST is no different than any other end-of-life care form, signed by someone who has the best intentions for his care being given in accord with natural law ethics, but overseen by another individual whose perspective is driven by motives that are not at all wholesome."

Live Action remarks on a blog, written by an abortion facility worker, that chastises pro-lifers for taking pictures of aborted babies and “exploiting” them. The worker believes that, in contrast, the clinic treats aborted aborted children “respectfully”:
In my clinic, we wash off the tissue and examine it. It is treated respectfully and put with the woman’s first name into a container. We show it to patients if they ask to see it, and make sure they understand which part is the sac (later the placenta), which part the pregnancy if visible (after 9 weeks), and which part the lining of the uterus. People have been known to pray over it, write notes for inclusion, “baptize” it, etc etc.
Some clinic staff have also been known to say a little prayer over it – thanking it for its sacrifice so that the woman could continue on the path she was on.
That just makes it all better, then, doesn't it? Premeditated murder spun as the “self-sacrifice” of the preborn child. Delusional.

Americans United for Life lists five takeaways from the recent annual report released by Planned Parenthood:
1. Abortion remains a central component of Planned Parenthood’s business.
2. After bullying the Susan G. Komen Foundation into lowering its grant standards and receiving “an outpouring of public donations,” Planned Parenthood’s “breast health services” continued to plummet.
3. Life-ending drugs and devices are a growing portion of Planned Parenthood’s “contraception” services.
4. Taxpayers continue to heavily subsidize the nation’s largest abortion chain.
5. The abortion chain is spending millions to “refresh” the Planned Parenthood “brand.”
 Josh Brahm posts a video on how to address those on opposite sides of the abortion debate. Are “pro-life” and “pro-choice” the correct terms to use? Why is this important?
