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...

Ohio Health Dept Investigating Abortion Businesses Violating Order to Stop Non-Essential Procedures33c61276af989b27528902437812c8ae

The Ohio Department of Health is investigating complaints this week about abortion facilities continuing to abort unborn babies in violation of a state health order. The Columbus Dispatch confirmed the investigation Friday as state leaders work to preserve medical resources and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. As LifeNews.com reported, abortion facilities are ignoring Ohio Health Director Amy Acton’s mandate to stop non-essential medical procedures, which went into effect last week. People called each abortion facility and confirmed that they still are aborting unborn babies. Last Friday, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost ordered two abortion business to stop killing babies in abortions....

Facebook Censors Pro-Lifers, Ignores Liberal Post Wanting Pro-Life Republicans to “Die”a6cd35afec34f1ff591b0422666d26bb

Is it “hate speech” when liberals call for people to commit suicide? Occupy Democrats, a very popular liberal Facebook page with more than 8.6 million followers, posted a screencap of a tweet on March 26 that wished for the suicide of two Republican senators. The tweet showed a picture of Senators Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY), with the caption: “If old people have to die to save the economy, maybe these guys will volunteer.” Facebook did not immediately respond for comment. The platform’s community guidelines state, “We do not allow hate speech on Facebook because it creates an environment...

Wyoming Gov Vetoes Bill for Medical Care for Babies Who Survive Abortions: Let Them...

In a surprising move, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon vetoed a bill to require basic medical care for newborn babies who survive abortions. Gordon, a Republican who says he is pro-life, claimed the bill is unnecessary, KPVI News 6 reports. “Laws already in place protect children from being denied life-saving care simply because they were born as a result of an abortion,” he said in his veto statement. Senate File 97, sponsored by Sen. Cheri Steinmetz, R-Lingle, requires abortionists to “take medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of an infant born alive” from an abortion. Abortionists who fail...

Killing Babies in Abortions is Never “Essential,” Not During the Coronavirus and Not Ever0819d42e7870ed8e90af2d3fd542ccfc

For months all eyes in the pro-life and pro-abortion camps have been on a Louisiana abortion case currently under review by the U.S. Supreme Court. Some observers on both sides of the legal child-killing divide think the Court’s decision could be very significant for the future of legal abortion in our nation. But now abortion is in the cross hairs of a challenger no one anticipated – COVID19. Because of the pandemic, individuals and institutions are living under new, temporary restrictions, one of which is that in order to marshal medical personnel, space, and equipment to fight the virus, “non-essential”...

Idaho Governor Signs Bill Banning Abortions: “Abortion is Not Health Care”c1e696d9a8f69940ecb78817d2386071

The governor of Idaho has signed a bill to prohibit the killing of unborn babies in abortions as soon as the U.S. Supreme Court allows states to do so. Sponsored by state Sen. Todd Lakey, R-Nampa, Senate Bill 1385 passed along party lines in a 27-5 vote and eventually passed in the House as well 49-18. The legislation would ban abortions once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Exceptions would be allowed for rape, incest and risks to the mother’s life. All other abortions would be considered a crime. This week, Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed the legislation into law. The U.S. Supreme...
