Pro-life blog buzz 7-4-14

from Jill

by Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

Right to Life of Michigan reminds Hillary Clinton – as she rambles incoherently about the Hobby Lobby decision that she opposes – that her own version of a 1994 health care bill included conscience protections:
The 1994 legislation gave “any employer” an exemption from purchasing health care that covered “abortion or other services” if “the employer objects to such services on the basis of a religious belief or moral conviction.”

At Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, Reggie Littlejohn tells how a WRWF undercover field worker learned of the potential coercive abortion of a full-term baby girl. They were able to tell the mother of their “Save a Girl” program:
Our fieldworker reassured her that we are helping other families keep their girls too because we believe that girls matter just as much as boys. We offered to give the family a monthly stipend for a year, to help them support their new daughter. With our help, Bao Yu’s mother was able to stand against the cultural tide of son-preference and give birth to precious baby Bao Yu [pictured above].
Real Choice recalls her history with journalist Diane Sawyer, who once labeled a bombshell of a story about an abortionist as a “non-story”:
After the allegations of patient A.A. became public, a warrant was issued for [Dr. Lawson] Akpulonu’s arrest on charges of rape. He fled. His whereabouts are still unknown. He and his facility remain “a non-story,” very much like the way the “house of horrors” Kermit Gosnell was running in Pennsylvania was dismissed by Sawyer-caliber journalists as just “a local story” and not worth a second glance on their part.
Diane Sawyer, if she’d had a shred of journalistic integrity, would have skulked off in vile disgrace after the Akpulonu story broke no thanks to her. Instead, she continued to pick and choose what the public should know about for decades. Her departure from the newsroom is a long overdue good riddance to bad rubbish.
Secular Pro-Life points out that the real war on women is happening with the help of Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, which are supporting two Wisconsin abortionists who can’t manage to obtain admitting privileges. Abortionists Dennis Christensen and Bernard Smith (both pictured) deserve to be poster-children for the necessity of abortion facility inspections:
Christensen’s Rockford, Illinois… was inspected on September 15, 2011, when inspectors found that all three of the abortion rooms “failed to ensure a sanitary environment.” Surgical instruments were not sanitized, and “brown substances” were found on surgical equipment and gloves. Inspectors also discovered that Christensen had no hospital privileges and failed to have a registered nurse present during invasive procedures as required in that state. The Illinois Department of Public Health issued a closure order five days later….
[Smith] was involved in two medical emergencies on the same day in April, 2011. A previous complaint lodged in 2007 concerning other medical emergencies at AMS involving Smith went unheeded.
Students for Life comments on the shameless award Planned Parenthood gave their facility in Aurora, Colorado, for exceeding their abortion quota.

John Smeaton advertises three paid internships in London this summer, which will “provide[] an excellent induction for those seeking to ‘learn the ropes’ of a leading pro-life organisation. Many interns have gone on to work in the pro-life or political sphere.”

A Voice for Hope posts a sobering picture (left)with a thought provoking question: Are you like him?

Wesley J. Smith says a “new study reports that women who use donated eggs in IVF have a greater likelihood of dying”. It can also be dangerous for the donors themselves: Women who have IVF babies using donor eggs could be much more at risk for a common but potentially dangerous complication of pregnancy, warn researchers. A new study shows a threefold higher risk of hypertension – high blood pressure – and an even higher risk of pre-eclampsia.
Pre-eclampsia is a severe disorder of high blood pressure in pregnancy that is potentially fatal for the mother and baby and the only cure is to deliver the baby surgically. The use of donor eggs in IVF (in vitro fertilisation) is increasingly common among older women trying for a baby who have no eggs of their own.
But French researchers say the pregnancies of egg donation patients are at a higher risk of disorders caused by high blood pressure, than the pregnancies of IVF patients using their own eggs. They found almost one in five pregnant women using a donated egg developed hypertension, compared with one in 20 women using their own eggs during IVF.
Altogether 11 per cent of women using donor eggs suffered pre-eclampsia, compared with less than three per cent of women using their own eggs.
