By Dave Andrusko Steven H. Aden once wrote an essay entitled, “Every Picture Tells a Story (Especially Pictures of Preborn Children)” which you can read here. Perhaps it was because the setting were the holidays (Christmas)– which would be a relief from the 90+ degree that those of in Northern Virginia are living through—that his …Continue reading "Ultrasounds and how they open our eyes to the continuity of life"

By Dave Andrusko My apologies for not getting to this sooner and my thanks to Sarah Terzo for her “Abortion records, ultrasounds and the truth,” an excellent story which placed a study published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology—“Relationship Between Ultrasound Viewing and Proceeding to Abortion”—in its proper context. Very briefly, “The study claimed …Continue reading "The truth about abortion clinics and ultrasounds"
By Dave Andrusko If you wanted the perfect illustration of “soft power,” I’d offer a video I stumbled across. It’s from 2012 and is only a couple of minutes long. After a short introduction by host Anderson Cooper television personality Lisa Ling [a correspondent for CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show] announced on the “Anderson …Continue reading "“WOW!” The power of ultrasounds"
By Dave Andrusko Steven H. Aden is senior counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom and a contributor to townhall.com. I read him faithfully, because he helps me see the uncommon, even the transcendent, in the commonplace events of our lives. Last week Aden wrote a piece titled, “Every Picture Tells a Story (Especially Pictures of …Continue reading "Ultrasounds and the continuity of life"
By Dave Andrusko I thought we’d start the week after Thanksgiving off on a delightful note. Writing on the online international journal PLOS ONE, researchers from the University of Durham have conclusively demonstrated that unborn babies do yawn, just another example of their behavioral repertoire. It’s already been proven that unborn babies can stretch, kick …Continue reading "Ultrasounds demonstrate Unborn Babies do yawn"
By Dave Andrusko If you wanted the perfect illustration of “soft power,” I’d offer a video I ran across last week but couldn’t find time to get to. It’s only a couple of minutes long and after a short introduction by host Anderson Cooper television personality Lisa Ling [a correspondent for CNN and the Oprah …Continue reading "“WOW!” The power of ultrasounds"
By Dave Andrusko Yesterday National Right to Life News Today ran two stories about ultrasound legislation. Ultrasounds allow the mother the opportunity to see that there is a real, live human inside her. And when she sees that image, she is far more likely to say “no” to the abortionist and “yes” to life for …Continue reading "What’s airing on Pro-Life Perspective Today: “Why Ultrasounds are so threatening to pro-abortionists”"
By Dave Andrusko Granted, providing pristine examples of impeccable logic is not the number one goal if you are an abortion advocate trying to turn a medical procedure that is conducted virtually 100% of the time into “rape.” But I honestly wonder if (their cynicism aside) they ever read the crazy things they write about …Continue reading "Another Abortion Advocate (Unwittingly) Makes the Case for Ultrasounds"
By Dave Andrusko In anticipation of the dust beginning to settle, pro-abortionists are trying to finesse a truth they bludgeoned during the hysterical campaign they launched against laws requiring ultrasounds prior to abortions. What truth? That virtually all abortionists ALREADY use ultrasounds to make sure they know how old the baby is whose life they …Continue reading "From “State-Sanctioned Rape” to “Torture Machines”"
By Dave Andrusko My almost seamless entry into the Pro-Life Movement came many, MANY years ago. I was an adult by the time of Roe v. Wade but in my innocence had missed the decade-long battle over “abortion reform” that preceded the 1973 decision that demolished the abortion statutes of all 50 states. My portal, …Continue reading "“So long as the victims are a faceless abstraction, anything can be done to them”"
