ProLife365 gives six answers to the common pro-abortion argument that claims abortion is better than a child being raised in poverty.
Priests for Life’s Kevin Burke is excited about the introduction of The Shockwave Initiative, which “will reveal how abortion impacts not only the child, the Mom, and the Dad, but entire families, including grandparents and siblings” and so forth. The initiative will “present a vision and resources for communicating this in a new way to our churches, families and nation devastated by abortion loss.”
Secular Pro-Life comments on the amazing story of Martin Pistorius (pictured above), who was considered in a persistent vegetative state for over a decade but claims he was fully aware of everything going on around him: Mr. Pistorius’ story ends well, but I cannot begin to imagine what he went through.I can think of only one thing worse than hearing “I hope you die,” and that is hearing “We are withdrawing your hydration and nutrition.”
Mr. Pistorius is not the first person to be misdiagnosed as a hopeless case. But the fact that it took twelve years to obtain a correct diagnosis has disturbing implications — how many families have the strength to wait that long? How many doctors would be supportive for that long? How many would instead urge the family to “let go” and end their loved one’s life prematurely?
ProLifeBlogs links to a post from Life Site News noting that Obamacare is requiring colleges to provide birth control, sterilizations and abortion producing drugs to students and employees. This greatly expands the original, publicized intent of the law.
