Clinic Quotes shares something that might make your blood boil: This is truly blood money...
In one year alone, the Los Angeles Planned Parenthood clergy consultation service received $250,000 in kickbacks from clinics to which they referred women for abortions.
The Clergy Consultation Service for Planned Parenthood has been around for more than 40 years.

At Catholic Vote, Michael New says the real controversy at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) wasn’t about the decision to exclude the American Atheists from displaying a booth – it was the lack of representation of certain social issues that have always been considered conservative:
This year’s CPAC includes more than 20 panels on a range of interesting topics including the IRS, gun rights, and Obamacare. However, during the three day conference there are no panels specifically dealing with the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, or religious liberty issues.

Americans United for Life encourages Governor Ray Tomblin of West Virginia to sign a late-term abortion ban which was passed by the Democratically-led state House and Senate:
A woman seeking an abortion at 20 weeks (5 months) is 35 times more likely to die from abortion than she was in the first trimester. At 21 weeks or more, she is 91 times more likely to die from an abortion than she was in the first trimester.

At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal has a strong statement about Planned Parenthood’s intention to bestow their Margaret Sanger Award upon Nancy Pelosi (pictured left with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and sex therapist Ruth Westheimer).
Pelosi presents herself as an ardent, practicing Catholic while at the same time wholeheartedly supporting abortion on demand. Nadal wonders how the bishops will respond: 

We are beyond conversation about reception of the Eucharist at this point. The question is why we cannot acknowledge that legislators who vote specifically for abortion funding (not general budgets containing abortion funding) but specific legislation for protecting, funding, and facilitating abortion are formal cooperators in abortion, and as such have already incurred automatic (latae sententiae) excommunication as such? On the consequences of this there can be no more doubt or debate. None of the Catholics in the party of death have defended the Church against the Obama administration’s war on religion. They are all in, all the way.
We have nothing to lose that we have not already lost, or will lose soon enough. That said, what is most frightfully at stake is the very moral authority of the bishops themselves. Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion Catholic legislators are celebrating a lifetime of malignant success in the middle of Lent. The time has come for the bishops to recognize that milestone with a pronouncement of their own, one that is long overdue.
Down on the Pharm may have coined a new term: fetophobia – the irrational fear of biological human development. Perhaps this was the reason that pro-life high school students were prevented from displaying accurate fetal models during lunch break at their school.

Abolish Human Abortion responds to the assertion that their drop cards, which are designed for public distribution, are “hate mail”:
So, are you more angry with finding the card or the fact that what it depicts is legally protected and nearly universally ignored by good people like yourself? I am more angry at the latter.
Big Blue Wave posts 8 simple rules for debating abortion. It is important for us to communicate effectively on this human atrocity.

Live Action shares a video in which a child lauds her hero. This video, along with many other life-affirming videos, was created by VirtueMedia, whose “‘pregnancy help ads’ focus on topics such as post abortion help, humanity of the unborn, statistics on abortion, resources for pregnant moms and more. The videos from VirtueMedia have received national awards for creativity in broadcast commercial production”:
