John Smeaton comments on the defeat of a sex-selection abortion ban in the UK. Opponents of the ban were apparently afraid it might “confer personhood on the foetus.”
Saynsumthn’s Blog reports that the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, school board voted to allow Planned Parenthood to have access to their students in 7th and 8th grade. No doubt this will increase Planned Parenthood’s customer base in the future, as these students become sexually active. Interestingly, the school board made their decision in part due to PP’s ability to garner favor with HHS and to obtain grants. Follow the money trail.
Secular Pro-Life features another in their series of analyzing abortion facility websites – American Family Planning of Pensacola, owned and operated by Steven Chase Brigham, whose medical license has been revoked in numerous states. SPL says, “AFPP’s website is full of troubling statements. That’s especially true of its section on medical abortion (abortion by pill).”
Operation Rescue exposes the fact that a Wichita, Kansas, abortion clinic is employing Dr. Leslie Page, an obstetrician who was disciplined by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts for “professional incompetency”:
It appears that Page is too incompetent to deliver live babies, but it’s apparently fine for her to deliver dead ones through abortions,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “This tragically places women in the risky position of being treated by someone the Board considered too incompetent to practice in a field closely related to abortions.

Documenting this history was an important task. While plenty has been written debating and analyzing the moral and legal foundations of abortion, the history of abortion-related activism has received precious little attention from either journalists or academics.
ProLife365 shares the powerful post-abortive testimony of a woman who had multiple abortions to prove “it didn’t hurt” her:
I’ve thoughts about why I kept doing that to myself, getting pregnant and having abortions in an endless cycle. I feel like I did it because I had to prove to myself that I was right. I had to prove to myself that it didn’t hurt, that I could go through it over and over again and it wouldn’t hurt. The more I did it, the less it hurt, physically and emotionally. I deadened myself to pain — to right and wrong. Until finally, with the last one, it didn’t hurt at all….
