At Real Choice, Christina Dunigan tells us why we need to counter the pro-choice lie claiming Kermit Gosnell was an “outlier” in the abortion industry:
We cannot let the abortion-rights movement weasel away from the fact that although the National Abortion Federation did reject Gosnell’s membership application, that didn’t stop one of their member clinics from hiring him to work part-time at their facility. A woman who believed NAF’s promises of safety would make an appointment at this reputable clinic, which would collect her fee and then turn her over to Gosnell’s care. Her abortion would be started at the NAF clinic, after which the woman would be given an appointment to have her abortion completed at Gosnell’s own facility, where she would be drugged within inches of her life by people who didn’t even finish high school, then left to moan and writhe on a blood-stained recliner amid the cat feces.
This relationship can’t be described as “outlier.” It was “employee.”
At Secular Pro-Life, Chris Rostenberg says something is seriously unhealthy about Planned Parenthood’s “Happy, Healthy, and Hot” brochure, which gives some very wrong advice to people who are HIV positive, along with other advice that just seems odd:
… [T]he giant of the abortion advocacy world proclaims: “You have the right to decide if, when, and how to disclose your HIV status… You know best if and when it is safe to disclose your [HIV] status…
It is not always possible to talk about to your partner(s) or to practice safer sex…”
There is no if, and there is no question of when. The only appropriate time to disclose one’s HIV status is before having sex with your partner. That is the “right way.” An organization that really cared about sexual health would not need me to explain this.
I’m hardly the first to write about this problem with Happy, Healthy, and Hot. It got a fair amount of coverage when the brochure first came to light in 2010. But if you read the whole thing, it turns out that there’s enough baffling propaganda for several articles.
Pro-Life Action League discusses the summary of abortionist Mandy Gittler’s deposition given regarding the death of Tonya Reaves at a Chicago Planned Parenthood:
Reading the deposition, it’s clear that Gittler drastically downplayed Reaves’ dire condition when communicating with doctors at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where Reaves was transferred at 4:30 p.m. after she continued to experience what a nurse called “heavy bleeding” — despite her repeatedly evasive answers as to whether she agreed that the bleeding was, in fact, “heavy.” As a result, ER personnel had no reason to believe that Reaves was in imminent danger of death.
At 11:20 that night, Reaves was dead….Imprecision, evasiveness, failing to accept responsibility — they’re all there in Planned Parenthood’s two-paragraph statement issued in the wake of Tonya Reaves’ death. And it’s a microcosm of abortionist Mandy Gittler’s 165-page deposition.
At Priests for Life, Kevin Burke shares the sad story of heavyweight boxer Floyd Mayweather (pictured above), who ended a relationship with his fianceé, Shantel Christine Jackson, after he discovered she had aborted his twin babies. Burke remarks, “How horribly ironic that one of the greatest professional boxers in the world is powerless after Roe v Wade to defend the life of his unborn children.”
ProLifeBlogs links to FRC’s post regarding the racist statements uttered by L.A. Clipper’s owner Donald Sterling:
Until this unseemly incident, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) planned to award Sterling with the “Lifetime Achievement Award.” This is an interesting situation for two reasons; according to a recent Time Magazine interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who used to work for Sterling) this rant was actually nothing new for him, and if Sterling has indeed had a history of vocalizing his racism, then why would the NAACP award this man with a “Lifetime Achievement Award?” Is it really possible that no one else on the award committee knew of his history of distasteful rhetoric?And yet, this same NAACP sued (and won against) The Radiance Foundation’s Ryan Bomberger, who is biracial, for “parod[ying] the NAACP acronym by saying [it] should stand for the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People” due to its strong stance in favor of abortion and Planned Parenthood.
