ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Is Not Pro-Life, But Can Be

By Sunny Shell – Posted at Abandoned to Christ:

The extraction of stem cells from unborn babies is completely unnecessary for this or any research. There are many other options for stem cell research where the opportunity to live is not callously stripped away from one person so another person can live.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ASL) commonly known as Lou Gherig’s Disease, is a fatal neuromuscular disease that presently has no cure. No ALS patient is alike. Some people experience a slow degeneration, while others experience a more rapid degeneration of the motor neurons in their brain and spinal cord that disperse messages to allow voluntary muscle function throughout their body. Variant rates of motor neuron degeneration allows for patients diagnosed with ALS to live anywhere…

A pro-choice abortion group has filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Texas Side Abortion Pills

According to a blog post published by Jill Stanek, Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traveled to Texas where they filmed themselves crossing the Mexican border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Misoprostol is available only by prescription in the U.S. and can only be dispensed by doctors for abortions. But it can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico.

After the purchase, NNAF tweeted photos, along with instructions on how to use Misoprostol illegally to self-induce an abortion…

Stanek points out that, now that legal abortion is becoming scarcer in places, proponents are reversing course and promoting the very same illegal abortions they protested against four decades ago.

Black female leader claims idea of pruning the Black race began with Planned Parenthood founder

In 1993 the New York City branch of the NAACP selected Dr. Dolores Grier to be the recipient of the Women’s History Month award, she refused it and membership because of the organization’s pro-choice stance on abortion.

Dr. Grier recently made this statement saying that we must witness to True-Life :

Dr Delores Grier

We must bear witness to true life,” Dr. Grier told The Journey Home Program, “I say true-life because too many of those who say pro-choice. Pro-choice is the comfort zone for our legislators who’d rather say pro-choice- the right to choose. Choose what? Whether or not to kill the child in the womb, that’s what she’s choosing.”

Yes, People Believe Abortion Is Murder

By Rachel Lu – The Federalist:

Writing at Mother Jones, Kevin Drum poses a great question. Actually, he has a couple of questions:

Do anti-abortion activists really think abortion is murder? Or is their opposition merely an expression of their broad discomfort with modern sexual and gender mores?

I appreciate Drum’s forthrightness. A lot of liberals wonder why pro-lifers rally and lobby and stand in the rain outside abortion clinics: can it really be that they care about babies? No, pro-lifers probably do these things because they have old-fashioned views about sex. They know that abortion has enabled modern women to lead a “sexually liberated” lifestyle. And they want to stop it because they do, in fact, want to see wayward women “punished with a baby.”

It’s rare for someone to pose the question as directly as Drum has. But I know he’s not alone in thinking this way. I see the contempt with which liberals accuse conservatives of caring about children “only before they’re born.” Obviously that smear reflects other policy disagreements as well, but it still speaks to a real skepticism about the authenticity of conservative concern for unborn life. …

A generation of pro-choicers wiped-out by abortion

By Denny Burk

081214_1453_Ageneration1This morning on his daily podcast, Albert Mohler discusses a new study confirming what James Taranto called in 2005 “The Roe Effect.” The “Roe Effect” is the theory that Roe vs. Wade has resulted in fewer Democratic voters over the decades. Over 50 million unborn babies have been killed since 1973, and those 50 million have occurred disproportionately among traditionally Democratic constituencies. If the theory were true, it would mean that Roe has eliminated a large portion of the voters who most likely would have adopted their parents’s pro-choice views.

This latest study, authored by two researchers from Northwestern University, has essentially confirmed that the “Roe Effect” is real. Here is a summary of their findings in their own words: …

Abortion, Disability, and Eugenics

How to Be a Christian in a Brave New World I really like this book: How To Be A Christian In A Brave New World by Joni Eareckson Tada and Nigel De S. Cameron.  I’ve mentioned it on this blog before (hereand here), so I won’t review all the details.  Instead, I’d like to quote a helpful paragraph by Tada that has to do with designer babies, eugenics, disability, and abortion.  Right before the following quote, Tada told the story of how a mother learned through screening that there was a high chance that her unborn baby had Down syndrome.  Sadly, the woman (“Kate”) ended up having an abortion.

“I wonder what made Kate decide to abort her unborn child with Down syndrome?  Did she think he would find no happiness in life?  Or did she worry about the burden this young life would place on her family?  Was it motivated by a fear of…

ADF: Planned Parenthood must report sexual assault of children

ADF: Planned Parenthood must report sexual assault of children from ADF Media Relations on Vimeo.

Complaint asks agency to investigate Tempe facility for failing to report alleged rape
Thursday, August 07, 2014

PHOENIX – Alliance Defending Freedom filed a complaint with the Arizona Department of Health Services Thursday that asks the agency to investigate a Tempe Planned Parenthood facility under a new state law that empowers such investigations. Last month, ADF attorneys joined an Arizona Life Coalition press conference that called on state prosecutors to investigate the facility for allegedly failing to report, as state law requires, the rape of a young girl by 18-year-old Tyler Kost, who then reportedly went on to sexually assault others.

“Planned Parenthood’s main concern should be the safety of young girls, not the size of its profit margin,” said ADF Legal Counsel Natalie Decker. “Sadly, this is not an exception, and Planned Parenthood is abusing more than just taxpayer dollars. Their complicity in placing young girls at the mercy of adult male sexual predators can’t be ignored, nor should it be allowed to continue.”

Pinal County criminally charged Kost with 27 counts of sexual assault and abuse. According to police reports, a Planned Parenthood counselor told one of the alleged victims and her mother at an abortion consultation that it “wasn’t worth the hassle” to report that the minor had been raped. After that, Kost allegedly committed additional offenses against four other young females. In addition to the ADF complaint, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office has asked the Arizona attorney general to investigate Planned Parenthood concerning the incident. Citizens are doing the same through an online petition.

In addition to the Arizona situation, Planned Parenthood has been sued in Colorado and in Ohio for failing to report the sexual abuse of minors.

As the ADF complaint explains, “The allegations against Planned Parenthood AZ and its employees are not that it merely remained silent, which is itself a crime. The allegations are that Planned Parenthood deliberately misrepresented sexual abuse on a minor by Mr. Kost by deliberately miscoding a sexual assault as “consensual.…” Over and over again, in Arizona and across the country, Planned Parenthood facilities stand accused of repeatedly ignoring mandatory reporting laws, inevitably resulting in the continued victimization of young children.”

“Planned Parenthood has violated the health and safety of our daughters, putting them at risk,” added ADF Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. “The Arizona attorney general and Department of Health Services should immediately investigate the Tempe facility to ensure no other young woman is told that sexual assault isn’t worth the ‘hassle’ of filing the mandatory report with police.”

ADF has been involved in several lawsuits involving Planned Parenthood secrecy and alleged fraud and recently submitted an updated report to Congress on the abuse of taxpayer dollars by the abortion giant’s affiliates. ADF has also been active in monitoring the Tempe Union High School District’s adoption of a Planned-Parenthood–promoted sex education curriculum as a “framework” for the district’s curriculum to ensure the district complies with state law.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.

Aborting in the name of Jesus

By Russell D. Moore – Posted at Baptist Press:

willie parkerNASHVILLE (BP) — It is one of the most disturbing articles I’ve ever read. The current issue of Esquire magazine profiles the “abortion ministry” of Willie Parker, a doctor who flies in and out of my home state of Mississippi to perform abortions at the state’s only abortion clinic. The word “ministry” isn’t incidental. Dr. Parker says he aborts unborn children because Jesus wants him to.

Parker, the article says, preached in Baptist churches as a young man, before going into medicine. He had, he says, a “come to Jesus” moment where he became convinced that he ought to do abortions. “The protesters say they’re opposed to abortion because they’re Christian,” he says. “It’s hard for them to accept that I do abortions because I’m a Christian.”

The profile portrays Dr. Parker as he prepares women for the abortions he is selling them. He tells them to ignore everything but their own consciences, and then, of course, he informs their consciences that abortion is morally acceptable. “If you are comfortable with your decision, ignore everything from everybody else.”

Penciled Prayers: Equitable Judgment at the Abortion Clinic

By Tony Miano – Posted at Cross Encounters:

Penciled at Starbucks on Hospitality Lane, San Bernardino, a short distance from the abortuary, on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, 0707 HRS.

“Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity” (Psalm 98:7-9).

O great God and King, the righteous Judge of all creation: I praise You, Lord. This is the day that You have made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

But Lord, I will need Your help. Holy Spirit, I will need Your help. For as You know, I will spend a few hours outside an abortuary, this morning. It is the most difficult place in the world for me to rejoice. The light and casual conversation with fellow Christians with whom I join in the work sometimes seem wholly inappropriate. And the lighthearted or humorous moments seem almost profane, considering the context.
