Puppies and sheets: Going great lengths to hide the reality of abortion

Abortion proponents have been known to try to censor pro-lifers from showing the reality of abortion depicted in photos of the victims.  But there has been a recent surge. It’s interesting to me that showing abortion victim imagery generates so much negative energy from the other side. What’s the problem with owning what they support? On March 4 abortion proponents “erected a wall of censorship” around a Justice For All display at the University of Georgia according to The Daily Caller: To prevent members of the campus community from actually seeing the images, students from two pro-choice groups – the Women’s Studies Student […]

Hang up the hangers

I love it when a pro-abortion mantra is proven to be a blatant lie. It’s especially gratifying when the source of the lie dispels its own myth. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the perpetually self-contradicting world of Planned Parenthood. The billion-dollar abortion giant tells huge lies all the time (I call it mythomania). They mask their gender control agenda under the guise of “rights” and “reproductive health”, asserting their power over the grossly (or willingly) misinformed. If only we had an institution that would call out big government-funded corporations and their corruption. If only we had a well-financed network of […]

DAY 7: Bringing light into the darkness

Abortion facilities are dark places … their rooms are filled, not with hope and relief, but with despair and loneliness. For the first days of this campaign, we’ve talked about how the light has broken through the darkness at abortion centers – and, as a result, babies scheduled to be aborted have been saved. But the darkness is real and can’t be ignored … especially at one of the most notorious late-term abortion facilities in America, which is where we begin today. ——————————————————- GERMANTOWN, MARYLAND ——————————————————- Last week, an ambulance was called to bring a woman from late-term abortionist LeRoy […]

Connecticut high school’s pro-life censorship makes national news

Another week, another case of censorship of student pro-lifers. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, from the long view. Battles like this get the abortion issue much more attention than were they never waged. And they give students real life lessons in the First Amendment right of free speech, which isn’t needed for pleasant topics we all agree on. But I know it’s hard on the personal level, and I give pro-life students all the kudos in the world for sticking to their guns in the face of adversity on behalf of the babies. So this time the censor is […]

Focus on babies in missing Malaysian jet perturbs abortion advocate

This tweet by Jodi Jacobson, editor-in-chief of the pro-abortion website RH Reality Check, is a great prospect for psychoanalysis: The pro-abortion mind never fails to amaze me. Who would think of something like that, other than someone whose frontal lobe is steeped in abortion support? Jacobson was right that initial news reports on the likely disaster, and many headlines, included a special notation that either one or two infants were among the passengers… But Jodi asked a good question. Why is it that while all innocent deaths (presumed, but not confirmed in this case) are tragic, the deaths of babies are […]

Students for Life President: Ignoring abortion like ignoring Holocaust

Here’s a message the media won’t want to hear: the dangers of ignoring the devastation of abortion. Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins compared remaining silent on abortion’s destruction to ignoring trains heading towards concentration camps. To a gathering of pro-lifers preparing to pray in front of abortion clinics, Hawkins declared, “We’re literally on the train track. Because this is where women are being led – to slaughter their children.” Hawkins spoke during a candlelit vigil on March 5 to kick-off the Washington D.C. 40 Days for Life campaign.  40 Days for Life is a campaign of prayer and fasting for […]

DAY 6: 44 lives saved from abortion – already!

It wasn’t long into this campaign before we got word of the first turnaround outside an abortion center. And so far, we have reports of 44 babies saved from abortion – that we know of! It takes faith and courage to pray and stand witness in front of an abortion facility. Some say it is a waste of time – but I beg to differ … and so do the moms who turn around at the last moment. God has not forgotten them … and neither should we. Here’s what I mean. ——————————————————- NORRISTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA ——————————————————- David Bereit, 40 Days […]

Abortion proponents declare “state of emergency” on vanishing access

A March 6 New York Times article, “Abortion law pushes Texas clinics to close doors,” included a slide show, “Last day for last abortion clinic in the Rio Grande,” referring to one of two Texas abortion mills that closed that day. Above and below are a few of those pictures. Click all photos and graphics to enlarge… According to Think Progress, the number of abortion clinics is Texas is down to 19, from 44 as recently as 2011. By September 1 there could be as few as six abortion clinics in the state that meet the new ambulatory surgical center […]

Networks never covered German home-school family’s plight

Illegal immigration might be a hot topic for the media, but the networks remained mum when the government denied asylum to a German family seeking the freedom to educate their own children.  Uwe and Hannelore Romeike along with their children came to the United States in 2008, seeking political asylum because home-schooling is illegal in Germany. The family wants to homeschool due to its Christian beliefs. Obama’s U.S. Justice Department refused asylum status, and chose to defend its decision in litigation. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by the Romeikes on March 3 which initially signaled a deportation for the family. […]

NARAL president: ‘Anti-abortion is anti-American’

Everybody says something stupid and offensive at one time or another. But it takes a special kind of ideologue to turn it into a speech repeated over and over. And that ideologue is NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue.  We missed it the first time she told a crowd that pro-lifers are “un-American.” That was at a Feb. 4 event in Washington, D.C. marking the pro-abortion group’s 45th anniversary (see video below). But Hogue liked it so much she said it again in San Francisco on March 4, at an event featuring Sandra Fluke, America’s most famous birth control user. And lest anyone […]
