By Dave Andrusko I count on my trusty readers to alert me to stories that I would never have seen. Today’s example is about something I’d not even heard of: pregnant women Photoshopping their baby’s sonogram on their stomachs. From the accounts I read this actually began on the social network Flickr in 2009 and …Continue reading "What upsets pro-abortionists now? “Assigning human attributes to not-yet-human embryos”"
By Paul Stark Sometimes pro-choice advocates say that pro-lifers care only about the unborn (i.e., the human fetus or embryo) rather than “actual living, breathing human beings” (or variations on that phrase). Of course, pro-lifers do care about already-born human beings, and to suggest otherwise is an indefensible slander (and an ad hominem attack irrelevant …Continue reading "Pro-abortionists argues the unborn are not ‘living and breathing’"
By Dave Andrusko If there is such as thing as a reverse spoiler alert, this may well qualify. In this post, you will figure out where I am headed long before I get there. Having said that…. Tomorrow, as most everyone knows, will be the 47th Earth Day. The photo you see below comes from …Continue reading "One day out, reflections on Earth Day and unborn children"
By Dave Andrusko Looking to update the situation in Iowa, I ran across a letter to the editor which praised the Des Moines Register for running pro-life and pro-abortion point/counterpoint. The letter writer eviscerated the pro-lifer and elevated the pro-abortionist (a “professor emeritus of biology at Drake University”) to the pantheon of the High and …Continue reading "A disturbing read into the process of malevolent apologetics"
By Dave Andrusko John Hamburg of Fetal Vision Imaging in Levittown, Pennsylvania, told David Moye of the Huffington Post that from the beginning, he knew there was something special about the ultrasound he took last week of Carissa Gill’s 25-week-old unborn baby. Which prompted this comment which appeared under the photo’s caption, posted on the …Continue reading "Unborn twins share a special bond–and a kiss"
By Dave Andrusko Iowa’s House Wednesday joined the Senate in having passed a bill that ban abortions after 20 weeks. The vote on Senate File 471 was 55-41. There are differences with the Senate version, passed March 14, which will need to ironed out before the bill goes to Gov. Terry Branstad. The bill also …Continue reading "Iowa House passes bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks"
By Dave Andrusko Nothing but nothing more upsets the anti-life set than when we cut through the disinformation, bogus analogies, and rhetorical fog to get to the truth: that is no “clump of cells” whose life is being ended in an abortion but a flesh-and-blood, developing human being. Our Movement is nothing if not creative …Continue reading "Technology has become instrumental in the fight to protect unborn babies"
By Dave Andrusko Sam Brownback was a passionate pro-lifer, both as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, so it came as no surprise that when he became Kansas’ 46th governor in 2011, his dedication to the cause of unborn babies was undiminished. Equally unsurprising is a letter of encouragement …Continue reading "Ks. Gov. Brownback sends letter of encouragement to pro-life Congressional leadership and pro-life President Trump"
By Dave Andrusko What’s more intriguing and/or more cute? The beaming smile of baby Leo at five months that is virtually indistinguishable from the smile caught by sonographers when Leo Hargreaves was 31 weeks gestational age? Or an unborn baby at 20 weeks who gives his mom and dad the thumbs-up ? I don’t know, …Continue reading "Unborn child signals to parents “All’s well”"
AUTONOMOUS LIFE IN THE WOMB Can we finally give the myth that an unborn baby is “just a clump of cells” a decent burial? By John Stonestreet Yesterday Eric Metaxas told you about a manipulative article from The Atlantic that heaps scorn on the pro-life movement’s use of ultrasound technology to show pregnant women and …Continue reading "When a Clump Is not a Clump"
Editor’s note. This comes from our friends at SPUC–the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. On January 7, Dr. Helen Watt of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre gave oral evidence to the Irish Citizens’ Assembly. The Assembly has been charged with examining the 8th Amendment to the Irish Constitution. Adopted in 1983, it protects the …Continue reading "Bioethicist makes powerful stand for unborn babies at Citizens’ Assembly"
By Maria Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Santa’s squad of invisible helpers is once again on the job this year. These unnamed philanthropists are zipping through department stores to pay the layaway bills of families who just cannot afford to make their final payments. Others place gloves, scarves, and other winter weather gear around …Continue reading "The Secret Santa in our Midst"
