… Defund Planned Parenthood.

 

The New York Times has noticed what it called a “reincarnation” of the prolife movement. Susan Tyrell says it is less of a reincarnation, and more a case of Lifting the Veil: What the Abortion Industry Doesn’t Want You to Realize.

Wesley J. Smith looks at the problem of doctors who give up before the patient does.

If I understand correctly, Canadian doctors are seeking legal cover for withdrawing medical care without consent.

At First Things, Joe Carter writes (emphasis in original):

Those of us in the pro-life movement often claim that we live in a “culture of death.” But most of us don’t believe it. Not really. We may use the phrase as a rhetorical tool, but deep in our hearts we think that our family, friends, and neighbors wouldn’t knowingly kill another human being.

We convince ourselves that they simply don’t realize what they’re doing. If only they could see—and honestly look at—the ultrasound pictures of an unborn child. If only we could convince them that what they consider a “clump of cells” is a person. If only they knew it was a human life they were destroying. If they only knew, they wouldn’t—they couldn’t—continue to support abortion.

But they do know. And the abortions continue. Not because we live in a culture of death but because we live in a culture of me.

Read the whole thing.

Taking note of a doctor who naively started her career as a proponent of assisted suicide, but who changed her mind after working with actual disabled people, and watching them go through valleys and come out the other side.

An EWTN video of the Walk for Life West Coast.

From the 40 Days for Life blog, Day 31:

Eileen in Beaumont recently witnessed some men who answered the call on what was otherwise a typical day on the job.

A truck from a heating and air conditioning contractor pulled up in front of the abortion center where the 40 Days for Life vigil is in progress. A couple of guys got out and saw the signs: “Pray to end abortion.”

“Do they do abortions in there?” asked one of the men. The volunteers responded, “Yes, they do!”

This man had not been aware of that. “We don’t do work for people who do abortions,” he said sharply, “and we will tell them so!”

With that, the two men went inside the abortion facility, came right back out, got in their truck and left.

“We want to encourage all businesses to be as brave as those folks,” Eileen said of the men who put principle above money. “Our world would be different if everyone took such a strong stand.”

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. 🙂

Welcome. This is just another place for pro-life ladies to meet and share and offer support to one another.
