  • Pro-Life Action League says a recent 911 call from the Planned Parenthood in Aurora, Illinois, shows how little they truly “care, no matter what” about women’s safety. When the emergency operator asks for the patient’s condition, the PP staffer offers nothing – except instructions on where to park:

  • Priests for Life notes that horrific conditions in abortion facilities are the norm, not the exception.
  • ProLife NZ comments on the Academy Award-winning film, 12 Years a Slave, drawing comparisons between abortion and slavery:

    Just like the current practice of abortion, slavery was once a culturally accepted norm that most people either supported or were unwilling to publicly express their opposition to.

  • ProWomanProLife extrapolates on how the Pill is not a good thing for women:

    It forces women to take an artificial hormone every day. It causes side effects including physical pain and mental problems. It makes us dumb and dumber about the way our own bodies work. It changes incentives so that women and men who aren’t remotely compatible sleep together – causing untold emotional pain and the odd “unwanted” baby, now to be considered an ill-begotten side effect.

  • Reproductive Research Audit’s Dr. Jacqueline Harvey writes an open letter to Sen. Barbara Boxer refuting her statement that “women take birth control, more than half of them, as a medication for other conditions.” Harvey was asked to evaluate Boxer’s statement for Politifact:

    In sum, contraception is overwhelmingly the reason why women use contraceptives, while any secondary and tertiary side-effects are a mere afterthought of most users according to the study the senator herself hides behind to authenticate her statement. While Sen. Boxer’s choice to pull one figure from a larger study makes her carefully-worded statement appear half-true, it is completely false. Truly, it is also completely offensive.

  • Secular Pro-Life has an informative article and graphic (shown below) showing how New York is completely backwards when it comes to the life issue:

    New York City may not have a desire to inspect its abortion facilities, but it is very interested in policing the interactions that pro-life pregnancy centers have with the mothers who come to them for pregnancy tests, sonograms, counseling, diapers, and other assistance. The City has spent who knows how much money defending its unconstitutional anti-pregnancy-center law in court for the past three years.

    SPL also notes that “no woman has ever had her uterus perforated, had pieces of her dead fetus left inside her, or hemorrhaged to death at a pro-life pregnancy center.”

Pro-life vid of day: Marine vet holds pols accountable on life

by Hans Johnson

Shaun Adkins gained some notoriety at a townhall meeting where he held Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) feet to the fire on out-of-control government spending. In this video he reacts to West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s (D) veto of a bill that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks. 

After dividing pro-choice advocates between the ignorant and the knowingly malevolent, he calls on pro-life politicians to speak out in opposition:

Megan Huntsman, 4th trimester abortionist

Megan-Huntsman-Arrested-After-7-Dead-Babies-Found-In-Utah-Garage

News broke April 13 of a gruesome find in a Pleasant Grove, Utah, garage: the remains of a dead newborn infant stuffed inside a box.

The owner of the home, Darren West, called police, who found six more babies, also hidden inside boxes. Of the seven, one was apparently a stillbirth, but the rest were murdered after delivery.

West’s estranged wife, Megan Huntsman, readily admitted to killing her children. According to the AP:

We are winning the war against abortion in America on all measurable fronts

facebook_1985578370

You may (or may not!) have noticed I’ve been out-of-pocket a few days. I was in Dublin, Ireland, where I was asked to speak at the National Convention for Life 2014 on April 12.

16668_606486482773510_604782369_nThe daylong event was more than sold out. Many came who hadn’t registered, and although there were dozens of chairs added, some of the 600 attendees still had to stand.

The life issue is huge in Ireland, which was abortion free until the tragic death in 2012 of Savita Halappanavar and her 17-wk-old baby, which abortion zealots exploited and lied about to push through a law legalizing abortion for medical emergencies and suicidal ideation last year.

In that light, NCFL organizers asked me to encourage our Irish counterparts by describing how we are winning the war against abortion in America. You can view my speech here, but I thought I’d post the statistics I showed – many compiled by abortion proponents – demonstrating that we are indeed prevailing in just about every measurable way.

Pro-life vid of day: Iconic 1987 pro-life exposé by NARAL founder

Bernard Nathansonby LauraLoo

Rerunning from a few years ago, Eclipse of Reason, produced in 1987 by the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson (pictured right), is a gruesome video that features a preborn baby boy being killed via dilation and evacuation (D&E).  His dismembered body parts are pulled out of his mother (warning: blood and female nudity), and are laid out for viewing to ensure nothing is left behind.

Every time I watch this video, I cry my heart out for this poor little boy.

D&E procedures are not as popular as they used to be. Our own Jill Stanek has commented that the preferred method of late-term abortion nowadays is the induced labor abortion procedure, a two or three day process that involves dilating the cervix to deliver the preterm baby. The baby is either killed beforehand by lethal injection or anticipated to die during or shortly after birth.

WARNING: Nudity, graphic content.

Actress Jennie Garth: “I love being pregnant”

Jennie Garthby Carder

I love being pregnant, and I love making babies. I loved getting fat!….

Just bringing a being into this world is crazy wild! It’s like an exchange you can’t compare to any other.

It’s like when ET connected with Elliot, you know, where they got sick when they were with each other and felt each other’s feelings.

~ Actress Jennie Garth, as reported by US Magazine, April 11

by LauraLoo

As reported by the Daily.Mail.UK:

Stephanie Green, a 39-year-old South Carolina mother, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing her six-week-old daughter with an overdose of morphine delivered through her breast milk.

As a nurse, Stephanie knew the dangers of taking morphine as a painkiller while pregnant and then breastfeeding… but in order for her to keep getting her prescriptions, she concealed her pregnancy from her doctors.
