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...

A group of University of Minnesota students protested this fall against an organization that provides free diapers, baby clothes, parenting classes and more to families in need. First Care in Minneapolis offers numerous free, non-judgmental services to women and men, including pregnancy and STI testing, baby supplies, counseling, post-abortion healing and more. In a statement to Campus Reform, Amanda Salmon of First Care said they serve university students, too. “While all of our services are available to students from the University, the most common service students seek us out for is STI testing and treatment,” she said. But because First Care...

40 Days for Life Sues to Stop Law That Bans Free Speech Outside Local...

The international organization 40 Days for Life, a local 40 Days for Life vigil group, and two individual plaintiffs have asked a New York federal court to stop Westchester County and named officials from enforcing a law imposing multiple restrictions on the speech of pro-life advocates on the sidewalks and rights-of-way adjacent to abortion clinics in the county. In an Amended Verified Complaint filed on November 24, 2022, the plaintiffs request a preliminary injunction which, if granted, would prevent the defendants from enforcing the new law, Chapter 425 of the Laws of Westchester County, while the matter is...

She Was Conceived in Rape and Glad She Wasn’t Killed in an AbortionMicaiah Bilger

Rebecca Kiessling always wanted to know who her biological parents were. Adopted as an infant, she told the New Yorker that she used a spiral-bound notebook to count down “the years, months and days” until she turned 18 and could request legal documents about them. In 1987 when she saw those documents, the Michigan lawyer and pro-life advocate soon realized something was wrong with the description of her biological father. To her shock, Kiessling later learned that her birth mother, Joann, had been raped at knife-point on the way to the grocery store one day and conceived her, according to the...

Sandra Merritt Fights Ruling Forcing Her to Pay Planned Parenthood $16 MillionLiberty Counsel

Liberty Counsel filed a request for an en banc review from the entire Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the multimillion-dollar civil lawsuit against Sandra Merritt for her undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood and trafficking of tissues and organs from aborted baby body organs. In the brief, Liberty Counsel presented argument that the appeals court should reverse the lower court’s ruling, order a new trial and strike the punitive damages award. A three-member panel of the Ninth Circuit recently affirmed the ruling against Merritt and David Daleiden, the founder of Center for Medical Progress, despite numerous errors of the trial court, including:...

Huge Wave of Liberal Men are Getting Vasectomies to Protest Overturning RoeMicaiah Bilger

A large Planned Parenthood affiliate has been doing more sterilizations on men this fall since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. Dr. Grace Shih, director of vasectomy services for Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, told KIRO 7 News that they have seen a 34-percent increase since the June abortion ruling, according to Fox News. Shih said one man told her that he believed having a vasectomy was an “act of love.” Others apparently never want to have children. “Men are interested in learning about contraception and learning about a vasectomy. I think the change in our political climate...
