ProWomanProLife recommends a blog post by pro-lifer Matt Walsh entitled, “I paid to have babies murdered and all I got was this coat hanger necklace?” Walsh writes:
Sure, we’d like to give to every worthy charity and needy neighbor, but alas our resources are finite. So… [d]o we concentrate on nurturing, sheltering, clothing, protecting, blessing, and loving our fellow human beings? Or do we negate the need for such things by opting to fund the extermination of the very sorts of humans that might end up requiring our charity, should they be permitted to exist in the first place? Do we feed them, treating them like hungry friends, or do we fumigate, treating them like swarming cockroaches?
If the ease and efficiency of the latter option appeal to you, The DC Abortion Fund is here to help….
[They like] to keep it classy. That’s why they offer a gift to anyone who chooses to donate to their organization: A coat hanger pendant….
I’m not sure what they were going for, but to me it symbolizes the myth of the “safe” abortion. We pretend that the clinics provide a less hazardous experience than back alleys and coat hangers, but it’s all a charade. A show. A merciless ploy, and women are the victims.
“Safe” abortions have killed at least 400 women…. A peer reviewed study, published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, found that women who’ve had abortions suffer from an 81 percent higher risk of mental health problems. Worst of all, the suicide rate among these women is tragic and startling.
Safe? Safe for who, exactly? Safe for the abortionists, I guess.

Pro-Life New Mexico discusses how pro-life activist Bud Shaver and Protest ABQ appear to have the UNM Center for Reproductive Health on the run. Apparently, their persistent witness has had an impact:
Well, lo and behold, the baby killers on 1701 Moon CLOSED their doors this past week, and a source said that it was because of Bud’s daily visits in front of their facility. They decided to relocate to an office park near the airport, but Protest ABQ has made several visits to the location and have notified other businesses in the area about their new neighbor. Bud Shaver along with others now make a daily visit to this site.
Real Choice posts a disturbing video from Operation Rescue, detailing an ambulance call for a patient not breathing following an abortion at a Cleveland facility. The video shows no resuscitation attempts by medical personnel as they are wheeling her out to the ambulance.

Pro-Life Wisconsin posts audio of an ambulance call for a “safe” and legal abortion at a Madison, Wisconsin Planned Parenthood which perforated a patient’s uterus. The PP caller requested that an ambulance come without lights and sirens.

At Pro-Life Action League, Eric Scheidler posts about the group’s activities outside the Supreme Court in support of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga this week. Scheidler also shares links to several interviews he gave to news outlets.

At Reproductive Research Audit, Dr. Jacqueline Harvey has an interesting and timely article on the Hobby Lobby case:
Reproductive Research Audit (RRA) recently submitted this amicus curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court case, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby for which oral arguments begin today. It is often glossed-over in the media that Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood provide coverage for 16 out of 20 forms of prescription contraceptives, and object to merely drugs and devices that they believe cause early abortions (one of which, Plan B, is available over-the-counter). Prior research at RRA had determined that these methods are actually among the least-popular, which lead us to determine how many women are truly affected by the plaintiff’s moral objection to abortion.
How many women? Harvey says it’s about 330.
Priests for Life posts a stirring video of Fr. Frank Pavone speaking about the HHS mandate from the steps of the Supreme Court:
