Pro-Life Action League continues to comb over the details that Planned Parenthood would rather keep hidden about the death of 24-year-old Tonya Reaves at their Chicago facility in 2012. Many disturbing discrepancies have been found:
In her sworn deposition, Planned Parenthood abortionist Mandy Gittler explicitly stated that 911 was called on the day Tonya Reaves had an abortion and later died. Yet there is no record of any 911 call from Planned Parenthood on that day.
In light of these facts, the question must be asked: Did abortionist Mandy Gittler perjure herself?
At Reproductive Research Audit, Dr. Mary L. Davenport discusses the continued silencing of medical research linking abortion to premature births, breast cancer, and other problems. Why is American media suppressing this information?
A powerful new study from China published last week by Yubei Huang and colleagues … [a] meta-analysis pooling 36 studies from 14 provinces in China, showed that abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by 44% with at least one abortion, and 76% with at least two abortions and 89% with at least three abortions….
It is a disgrace that a more honest discourse about difficult medical topics can be found in the People’s Republic of China than in the USA. The censorship of medical journals, prevention of conference presentations, denial of grant money and faculty promotions, and self-censorship of honest scholars in academic medicine who want to tell the truth but feel they cannot, impoverishes us, and should not be tolerated.
Reflections of a Paralytic shares a great example of why surrogacy is a bad idea. A British woman signed a contract with an American couple, stating she would abort in the first trimester if she became pregnant with more than one child. The couple learned she was carrying twins at 8 weeks gestation but waited until 13 weeks gestation to demand the abortion. The surrogate refused, citing her own personal health risks, resulting in a court battle.
Secular Pro-Life encourages pro-lifers to tune in to The Heritage Foundation’s panel discussion on the anniversary of Kermit Gosnell’s conviction.
ProWomanProLife points out the twisted Mother’s Day wish of a Canadian university professor:
… HuffPost Canada…. did a series called What Moms Really Want, for mother’s day. I was obviously disturbed by this mom’s request for free abortion and IVF:
What I really want for Mother’s Day is for all Canadians to be supported in their choice to become parents when they’re ready — which means abortions are free, legal and easily accessible, and that artificial reproductive technologies be offered safely and widely to ALL Canadians through provincial health coverage.
Right to Life of Michigan responds to Detroit News columnist Laura Berman, who “doesn't like Michigan’s Abortion Insurance Opt-Out law which opts the state out of abortion insurance coverage except by optional rider”:
Berman is upset that insurance companies are, at this point, apparently not offering abortion insurance riders on individual plans…. [T]his is not because insurance companies can’t, it’s because they've decided not to at the moment, most likely because the demand for them is so low. Only 3% of Michigan’s abortions were paid for by insurance in 2012. If Berman is upset insurance companies in Michigan aren't offering a product she believes should be available, then she should take it up with them.
At Life Training Institute, Clinton Wilcox has an issue with those who are pro-life in theory only:
Being pro-life requires action. If you truly believe that the unborn are innocent human children, since they are being legally and brutally slaughtered in our country, we must do something to end the slaughter of these children. And as far as I’m concerned, all are welcome in the pro-life movement, whether or not we agree on religious or metaphysical views.
