Ultrasounds and how they open our eyes to the continuity of life

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.

The truth about abortion clinics and ultrasounds

  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 …

Cutting-edge technology meets the pro-life movement: New Save the Storks buses set a new standard

By Lauren Enriquez A massage chair? iPad-controlled music and lighting? Sonograms that are sent directly and automatically to a physician? These are just a few of the jaw-dropping features that Joe Baker of Save the Storks excitedly enumerated during a casual phone conversation last week.

“WOW!” The power of 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.

Ultrasounds demonstrate Unborn Babies do yawn

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 …

What’s airing on Pro-Life Perspective Today: “Why Ultrasounds are so threatening to pro-abortionists”

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.

Another Abortion Advocate (Unwittingly) Makes the Case for Ultrasounds

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 …

From “State-Sanctioned Rape” to “Torture Machines”

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.
