‘What happens to women who are denied abortions?’ 95% live happily ever after


The New York Times Magazine will run a story this Sunday with the ominous title “What Happens to Women Who Are Denied Abortions?” Written by Joshua Lang, a student in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program, the story attempts to answer the question using the “Turnaway Study,” a study of some 200 women who sought abortions and were turned away, mostly due to being too far along to legally perform the procedure.

The study was performed by a group of pro-abortion researchers looking to catalog the negative effects of giving birth to an unplanned baby. Instead, they found that the overwhelming majority of women who wanted abortions but couldn’t get them were happy with the outcome.

Undercover Call Reaffirms Planned Parenthood’s Failure to Report Statutory Rape


Project Defending Life has released a video (http://youtu.be/pTPQhCi9KV0) that features an undercover phone call placed to Planned Parenthood of New Mexico in Albuquerque by a woman seeking an abortion who indicated she was 14 and her boyfriend was 21. The caller was told by a Planned Parenthood employee that they probably would not need to report even though the relationship qualifies as statutory rape.

The caller asked if her age would be a problem. The Planned Parenthood receptionist responded, “In Mexico, there’s no limit on when you can have sexual reproduction rights.”

Girl Scouts Face Abortion Controversy


A recent Girl Scout-sponsored event in New York City, billed as one that would “celebrate women and girls,” featured a live screening and panel discussion of the documentary MAKERS, a feminist, pro-abortion video account of prominent women who are described as “trailblazing” and whose “pioneering contributions” are purported to have changed America.

At Catholic Stand, writer Mary Rice Hasson describes the May 9th event, which was also sponsored by Girls, Inc. of NYC and PBS station WNET, as featuring “Girl Scouts front and center.” The event was headlined by feminist activists Marlo Thomas and Amy Richards.

What Is Human? – Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry


The latest undercover video from the pro-life organization Live Action shows a host of abortion doctors nationwide equivocating about fetal development and the humanity of the unborn child, and then describing in graphic detail the late-term abortion procedure that would end these children’s lives.

In one shot the famous late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart tells Live Action’s investigator that in his “heart and mind,” life begins “when the mother thinks it begins, not when anybody else thinks it begins.”

He adds: “For some women, it’s before they conceive; for some women, it’s never. Even after they deliver, it’s still a problem, not a baby.”

Online for Life: Saving Babies From Abortion One Search at a Time


In a world where the internet is the go-to source for everything, the need for pro-life websites and resources is obvious.

The people at Online for Life recognized the need for pro-life resources to inundate the internet, and in response, they quit their for-profit jobs to work full-time saving pre-born children and their mothers from the pain of abortion by reaching them via the internet. Online for Life is a resource that connects abortion-minded parents with pregnancy resources that often address the very reasons why an abortion was being sought.

Federal Appeals Court rules girls as young as 11 must have access to Plan B with no restrictions


by Lisa Graas

On Tuesday, a federal appeals court ruled that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must immediately make one form of the abortifacient Plan B, also known as the “morning-after pill,” available to children of all ages over the counter. In April, a “clearly furious” federal judge, Edward Korman, had ordered the FDA to remove all restrictions, including age restrictions, on the sale of Plan B, but the FDA appealed the ruling. Tuesday’s decision denies a stay that had been requested by the FDA.

In response to the April ruling, Lila Rose, President of Live Action, issued a statement calling for Judge Korman’s decision to be immediately overturned.

“Pro-Choice” Blogger Mocks Father’s Anguish Over Abortion Of His Baby


A common tale is the man who gets a girl pregnant, and then pressures her into having an abortion. For men just looking to screw around and avoid commitment at any cost, abortion is the perfect solution. Abortion allows them to use a woman and then leave her, have sex and still avoid any kind of consequences or responsibility for their actions.

Hard times a-Komen: Race for the Cure canceled in seven cities after Planned Parenthood controversy


The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation has announced it is cutting half of its three-day races due to poor response, a situation that a Komen spokeswoman blamed in part on the controversy over the charity’s decision last year to stop, and then renew funding to Planned Parenthood.

The cities where no one will run for a cure are Boston; Chicago; Cleveland; Phoenix; San Francisco; Tampa Bay; and Washington, D.C.

Last year, the Komen Foundation briefly opted to withhold more than half-a-million dollars in annual funding from the nation’s leading abortion provider on the grounds that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms. It simply refers patients to those who do, collecting a fee in the process.

Congressional Bill Would Ban All Taxpayer Funding for Abortions


A new bill introduced in Congress would ban all federal taxpayer funding for abortions.

Yesterday, U.S. Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), co-chairs of the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, and U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS), announced the introduction of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

The legislation, which has been introduced as H.R. 7 in the House and S. 946 in the Senate, has the support of 95 cosponsors in the House and 21 in the Senate.

58 Babies Develop Cerebral Palsy Annually in England Because Moms Had Abortion


Almost 60 premature babies are born with cerebral palsy in England and Wales every year because their mothers had previous abortions.

This is because 15% of babies born before 28 weeks develop cerebral palsy and 400 premature births before 28 weeks each year are attributable to abortion. 15% of 400 is 60. This calculation is based on the studies below.

It is well known that women who have abortions are more likely to suffer from pre-term births in subsequent pregnancies.

here are now at least 119 articles in the world literature attesting to the association, and very few indeed that contest it (see review).

FDA: Morning-after pill to move over-the-counter


The government is moving the morning-after pill over the counter but only those 15 and older can buy it — an attempt to find middle ground just days before a court-imposed deadline to lift all age restrictions on the emergency contraceptive.

Today, Plan B One-Step is sold behind pharmacy counters, and buyers must prove they’re 17 or older to buy it without a prescription. Tuesday’s decision by the Food and Drug Administration lowers the age limit and will allow the pill to sit on drugstore shelves next to spermicides or other women’s health products and condoms — but anyone who wants to buy it must prove their age at the cash register.

Poll: Most Americans Familiar with Planned Parenthood, But Don’t Know that Planned Parenthood Performs Abortions


Recent polling by the Polling Company found that a substantial majority of registered voters say that they are familiar with Planned Parenthood and a majority has a favorable impression of that organization.  However, the same poll found that a majority did not know that Planned Parenthood performs abortions, despite the fact that it is the largest provider of abortions in the United States.

“The polling reflects the results of Planned Parenthood’s campaign to publicly minimize and obfuscate its involvement with abortion.” said David N. O’Steen, Ph.D., National Right to Life Executive Director.

Texas 14-year-old given abortion pills against will by abuser



A 51-year-old Texas man has been accused of allegedly impregnating a 14 year-old girl and then coercing her into taking abortion pills to terminate her baby.  Under the Texas Prenatal Protection Act passed in 2003, inflicting bodily injury to a pregnant woman resulting in the death or injury to her unborn child is a criminal offense.

Mauricio Hernandez was arrested in North Texas after the young girl was admitted to the hospital for excessive bleeding.  The girl told officials that she gave birth in a portable toilet after Hernandez reportedly gave her two abortion pills without her knowledge or consent.  Police found the full-term child submerged in the toilet.
