A Sidewalk Turnaround

As Kathryn mentions below, a couple to whom Kim had given a brochure in front came out of PP and sat a while on the bench in back; both Kim and Bentley called to them and they eventually came walking out the driveway and asked, “Where do we go?”  They had an ultrasound inside which showed the baby at 21 weeks, too far along for PP to do an abortion.  But they refused to tell them if the baby was a boy or girl.  (Amy tells us that PP makes clients sign a form stating that they will not be shown the ultrasound... lest they change...

View from the Side Walk

Not a whole lot of people entered the front entrance where a number of us stood to counsel and to pray - two couples, two single women, and one woman dropped off. Most noteworthy was a situation with a very young, scared looking woman who when approaching the building was quickly surrounded by two escorts. Theresa and I attempted to talk to her and did our best, but the woman escort, a regular, grabbed her by the arm and steered her past us into the door of PP. I would have talked to Steve (and maybe still will), but the other escort present (our doctor "friend" - a reasonable fellow), quickly...

Days at the Capital

Just got back from Catholic Days at the Capitol.  Visited with Senator Gruters and Rep. James Buchanan.  Both received us very graciously in their offices and we were able to talk to them about the Parental Consent Bill.  Gruters is a sponsor of the bill and Buchanan is co-sponsoring it.  We heard the debate in the Senate Chamber.  Most enlightening.  Senator Farmer argued that it would cost $250,000 to raise a child; so if a parent were not to give their consent, they should be made to sign an agreement to underwrite the unborn child's cost of living. (Can't make this stuff up!)  Senator Burman argued...

Senator Says Abortion Kills Babies, But It Also Hurts WomenSteven Ertelt

U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) Thursday continued a push for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to conduct a thorough review of the risks to women’s health from a chemical abortion pill made more widely available during the pandemic. During a Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee hearing to review the FY2022 FDA budget request, Hyde-Smith questioned FDA regulatory inconsistencies regarding the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) for mifepristone, the chemical abortion drug. In April, Hyde-Smith led a bipartisan, bicameral letter to the FDA that expressed concerns about the agency’s decision not to enforce the mifepristone REMS during the pandemic and requested the agency mandate complete...

G7 Summit Group Wants to Expand Killing Babies in Abortions WorldwideMarie Smith

The Group of Seven (G7) Summit is taking place in the UK from June 11-13 under the presidency of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson with an aim to “build back better from coronavirus, uniting to make the future fairer, greener and more prosperous.”  Last year’s G7 Summit under the presidency of President Donald Trump was postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic. One of six official G7 engagement groups is Women 7 (W7) which is described as bringing together “women’s rights advocacy groups from the G7 countries and around the world committed to women and girls’ rights.”  Its objective is “to...

Doctors’ Group Pressured Physicians to Sign Letter Supporting Planned Parenthood, AbortionMicaiah Bilger

A whistle blower exposed the New Hampshire Medical Society this week for pressuring doctors to sign a letter by Planned Parenthood in opposition to a bill that would prohibit late-term abortions on viable unborn babies. In an email the whistle blower provided to the Daily Wire, the medical society asked doctors to sign a letter urging Gov. Chris Sununu to veto the pro-life legislation. “Planned Parenthood NH has drafted a letter they plan to send to the governor and are hoping to have physicians signed on to show opposition to this section of the budget,” the June 9 email read. “This...

California Democrats Want to Take Away People’s Health Care to Promote AbortionsMicaiah Bilger

California medical leaders are warning residents that a bill being pushed by abortion activists would threaten access to life-saving medical care for thousands of low-income and rural people across the state. Live Action News reports state Senate Bill 379, sponsored by Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, would ban the University of California Health System from entering contracts with health care providers that refuse to abort unborn babies or help people kill themselves in assisted suicides, among other things. Basically, Catholic hospitals would be prohibited from working with UC Health, a change that could cut off health care access to “tens of thousands of...

Senator Tells HHS Secretary: Quit Using Birthing People. “Mom is a Pretty Good Word,...

During a Senate hearing today, a pro-life senator told the abortion activist who runs the nation’s health department to stop using the term “birthing people” because it’s scientifically inaccurate and offensive to women who are mothers. As LifeNews has reported, Joe Biden’s administration is trying to redefine terms related to pregnancy and motherhood to push a radical agenda on the American people. The goal apparently is to make irrationality, violence and ultimately the devaluing of human life appear reasonable. Biden’s $6 trillion 2022 budget plan refers to mothers as “birthing people.” The Biden administration used the term in a section that includes...
