At Life Training Institute, The Failed Atheist links to his excellent response to the viral UK video of a pregnant pro-choicer chastising Abort 67 pro-lifers for holding abortion victim images in front of an abortion facility. TFA responds to the woman’s arguments, such as, “It’s wrong to show abortion imagery because we don’t know why they are having an abortion,” “You’re a hypocrite because you’ve had an abortion,” and “Some of the women wanting an abortion may have been abused.”
Abstinence Clearinghouse says a Minnesota school is under fire for allowing a Catholic speaker to give a non-religious abstinence presentation.
Big Blue Wave points out more of the pro-choice side’s faux concern for babies by quoting from an article that questions the stopping of a chemical abortion once it has been initiated:
I think our main concern here should be for the children we’re supposedly “saving.” Will “reverse abortion” babies be healthy? Will they suffer from side-effects of the treatment? Will they suffer brain damage? Will they develop normally? Those answers should be available already. And they’re not, which is terrifying and unacceptable.
To the pro-death culture, death is a better choice than a life with the potential to be anything other than perfectly healthy.
Bound4Life updates readers on the battle between the Little Sisters of the Poor and Obamacare’s HHS Mandate:Mother Loraine puts a fine point on her group’s dilemma:
“The government forces us to either violate our conscience — or take millions of dollars for the care of the elderly poor, that we raise by begging, and instead pay fines to the IRS.”
Euthanasia Prevention Coalition congratulates Dr. Kevin Fitzpatrick and Not Dead Yet from the UK “for their part in defeating the assisted suicide vote” in Wales.
Live Action News comments on why Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards is headed for future election night disappointments as she bucks the views of pro-life people, who make up half the population. Richards stated, “[W]e want to make it completely unacceptable to run for office as someone who opposes women’s rights or wants to take us backward.”
Kansans for Life gives the back story on Planned Parenthood’s objections to certain state informed consent weblink requirements, and why they lost the fight.
Judie Brown notes the media’s recent fixation with “use of excessive force” in connection with recent deaths in Missouri and New York. Brown can’t help but notice the selective outrage:
We are told that these recent cases of men rendered dead by the use of force allegedly perpetrated by policemen are examples of acts of discrimination and brutality. Reporters argue that these acts were committed against those who some say are innocent of any wrongdoing. But as these cases unfold and we hear the rhetoric — much of which is bravado — some of us are left with a very bad taste in our mouths.
So I will say it again. And again. The innocent baby from the beginning of his biological life is not guilty of any wrongdoing. This child has not carried out even the smallest crime. In spite of these facts, a heinous act of murder is committed against babies hundreds of times daily as the public — including the justice system — looks on.
Obviously there is a legal distinction. The direct killing of a living, breathing human being who has survived the womb is always an act that should be investigated to the full extent of the law. That is what justice requires. But of course, the justice of which I speak is not applicable to a child whose mother has been given a legal right to pay a third party to kill him as long as he is not yet fully born.
Excessive force should never be used against an innocent preborn, but it is every day….
On the one hand man’s law is used to protect those who are accused of a crime, but on the other hand the law protects deadly crimes committed against the innocent prior to birth.
