On the Pro-life Front

Scandalous Planned Parenthood
The thought occurred to me when acorn was defunded because of their scandalous behavior , why isn't Planned Parenthood defunded when it behaves scandalously? (see the Mona Lisa Project for PP covering up statutory rape) It just shows how deeply ingrained the "right" to kill unborn children is engrained in our culture. Now PP has been caught in more outrageous behavior that should cause outrage in the American people, but I imagine that most will never know or care.

PP has been involved in 10 clinical trials involving underage girls. These trials involved taking birth control consistently. Now if you know that girls as young as 13 are having sex and do nothing, aren't you being complicit in statutory rape? And PP not only KNEW but ENCOURAGED these sexual relationships by helping with birth control. ARGH! If you would like to see the full report including which PP offices participated, go here.

Bubble Zone Law
The city of Chicago has passed a Bubble Zone Law that is directly aimed at the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil. For more information on this, go to the 40 Days for Life blog. The new city ordinance will not only block sidewalk counseling and pro-life signs within 50 feet of all entrances to an abortion facility, it would also prevent any pro-lifer from being within eight feet of an abortion customer without getting that person’s permission. Anyone found in violation could be fined up to $500.
If you live in Chicago, please call Mayor Daley, and ask him to veto this bill.

Some Good News from 40 Days for Life
On the other hand, there is some good news. 40 Days for Life has had 174 mothers change their minds about aborting in the past 16 days. Also an abortion worker in Canada who had been specifically prayed for by name for several days of the vigil, quit her job. And when pro-aborts try to demoralize those participating in the vigil, it brings vigor instead of defeat.

Here is an example from the 40 Days for Life blog.

This past weekend, abortion supporters targeted the 40 Days for Life vigil in Manassas, Virginia — not far from Washington, D.C.

On Saturday — the morning my home church was signed up to cover the vigil — the abortion advocates got a permit to conduct a demonstration against 40 Days for Life at the place the vigil usually takes place.

But when the day came, there were 197 pro-life people praying at the clinic — and only THREE abortion demonstrators. Demoralized, they didn’t stay long.

Here are just a few of the people who came to stand up for life:

And here’s “the rest of the story”…

While all those people were out there praying, a woman walked towards the clinic for an abortion appointment. After people on the sidewalk spoke to her, she entered the nearby pro-life pregnancy center instead.

“The lady who was about to have the abortion told the counselor she started to shiver when she saw so many people praying,” said Ken Groves of the Manassas
40 Days for Life campaign. “At that moment she said she felt God wanted her to have her baby. A precious baby was saved! It was an amazing Saturday in Manassas.”

National Support for Abortion at New Low
Also, the national support for largely unlimited abortion is at a new low of 47% according to a Pew survey. One interesting thing about the survey is this:
The poll finds that four-in-ten Americans are unaware of Obama's position on the abortion issue. Conservative Republicans, however, are more likely than any other group to know Obama's position, with 75% correctly identifying him as "pro-choice" rather than "pro-life."
We have a lot of educating to do if 4 in 10 Americans do not know that Pres. Obama is pro-abortion!

Keep up the fight for the unborn everyone and don't be afraid to share the truth!

Amen! We've got a lot of work to do! This all makes me sick and brings to mind when Jesus got angry in the temple! God's not pleased, but do stay encouraged! God will have the final say! "Vengeance is mine!" says the Lord.
