At Priests for Life, Janet Morana discusses the decision of CVS to stop selling tobacco products in their stores because they want to “help people on their path to better health.” Morana sees another opportunity for them to make a positive impact on health: If CVS is serious about wanting to protect the health of its customers, I hope they took a good hard look at the women and girls whose health and fertility are jeopardized by continued sales of contraceptives and abortifacients.
Reflections of a Paralytic features a radio segment in which he is interviewed about how biotechnology is commodifying women.
Pro-Life Action League points out that while overall abortion numbers may be declining, that isn’t the case at Planned Parenthood, where numbers are increasing. According to PLAL, PP’s reports show that “Planned Parenthood performs about 40% of all abortions in the US and abortion income makes up over 50% of their clinic income every year.”
Pro-Life in TN wonders who came up with such an audacious headline over at Politics USA, which reads, “Obama’s Culture of Life: The Abortion Rate Has Fallen 13% Under This President”. PL in TN remarks:
No mention of the pro-life movement and the number of pro-life laws passed at the state level across the country. Nah… it is all about Obama… the president who voted in IL state senate against the ban of killing infants who survived abortions.
At Secular Pro-Life, Clinton Wilcox responds to abortion-supportive blogger Deanna Young, who “has written a couple of articles defending the right to refuse argument….”
Wesley J. Smith reviews a case in which a pregnant Canadian woman has been declared brain dead, but her husband is maintaining life support until their preborn son reaches the gestational age of viability. Wonder why this one isn't making as much news as the case of Marlise Munoz and baby Nicole.
At thirtyone8, Andy Moore posts video of a 20-week abortion performed by Dr. Dennis Christensen, who reportedly “performed abortions up to 22 weeks at a Madison Planned Parenthood clinic until retiring in late 2008.”It renders you almost speechless to note Christensen’s casual nature of examining dismembered baby parts and remarking on how he helped the patient “facilitate her decision not to parent at this time.” The patients (filmed from the back) speak of their reasons for aborting, all of which are lifestyle- and not health-related. I am amazed that the doctor would allow such a video to be filmed.
(Abortions at this stage and later are what Texas Sen. Wendy Davis was standing for – in pink running shoes.)
