Pro-life blog buzz 1-6-15
from Jill Stanek.com
by Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli
Secular Pro-Life has discovered some interesting nuggets in Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report. For instance, PP hails the box office flop Obvious Child as a “major victory.” They also boast of an increased college campus presence, bringing them to over 200 chapters. However, there are more than 4 times as many pro-life college campus groups. SPL’s personal favorite is the fact that PP credits their own organization with preventing an extra 1,000 unplanned pregnancies even though they show a decrease in dispensing contraceptives.
Suzy B remembers the remarkable story of a premature baby who was saved by a freezer bag:
Baby Ellis was born at 24 weeks, when he could have been legally aborted. Instead, his parents and doctors fought to save him and he is now a “happy and cheeky” 1 year-old.
Wesley J. Smith points out that while Slate is publishing photos of babies just seconds out of the womb, there are “some very prominent bioethicists – past and present – certain… these littlest people are killable – either because they are denigrated as human “non-persons” or because they have terminal or seriously disabling conditions.”
Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust show how we can have a conversation with those in the “mushy middle” on abortion, eliminating the middle ground so that they truly choose a side.
Real Choice recalls the anniversary of Kermit Gosnell and his “House of Horrors.” The failure of the Pennsylvania Department of Health to investigate complaints was nothing short of a political move.
ProLifeBlogs links to The Black Kettle’s post that says 650 babies are euthanized yearly in the Netherlands.
Saynsumthn’s Blog tells of the many organized (and fully boozed) pro-abortion celebrations planned around the country, marking 42 years of Roe v. Wade. Some are even hosted by liberal churches.
Bound4Life shares their top ten milestones for life in 2014, including the Hobby Lobby ruling as well as pro-life laws enacted across the country, and also some you might not typically see on a pro-life milestones list.
