He is breathing on his own, too, which is very good news. But all his family had been asking all along, really, was that they could take him home. And he’s finally there.
Planned Parenthood has been drinking at a lot of public troughs in the United States. Reductions are being considered in some states.
Eight amendments to the budget redirected $61 million away from the abortion industry and into more worthy causes:
The programs to which the money was allocated were strategically selected based on the cuts to their budgets. Some pro-abortion members of the House were livid that their Pro-Life colleagues forced choices ON RECORD between the abortion industry and children with autism, adults with mental health needs, etc. While passions rose and tempers flared once the abortion advocates realized what was happening, the Pro-Life amendment sponsors remained compassionate, confident, and courteous.
I think I like this strategy. 🙂

Heads up, Californians.
Never mind that embryonic stem cell research has helped no one and harmed many – or that adult stem cell research has provided great benefits without the ethical downsides. California has come up with a sneaky way of skimming more money from the citizenry to pay for embryonic stem cell research, according to EraseTheNeed’s Blog. Barb says “This new bill (AB 190) is due to be heard tomorrow, April 5.”
Baptist Press takes note of pro-life progress in state legislatures in the United States.
The House and Senate need to work out some differences, but it looks like Texas is well on its way to insuring that more mothers see their unborn child before deciding whether to kill the child. Under the House version, a woman would have to have a sonogram at least a day before an abortion, so she has time to think about it.
I’m still hoping for – and don’t intend to settle for less than – widespread personhood recognition of the unborn in my lifetime, but considering that oh so many people don’t really seem to ‘get’ the real, live uniqueness and self of each preborn without seeing a sonogram, I can certainly understand the push to make sonograms more a part of the landscape. Please, though, let’s not stop there. Anything but protection from conception to natural death keeps us in ‘legally choosing to kill unwanted people’ country. And that’s not a good place to be.
