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...

Catholic Bishop Blasts Abortion: It Has “Snuffed Out” the Lives of 63 Million PeopleMicaiah...

More Catholic bishops are speaking out strongly against the killing of unborn babies in abortions this spring as President Joe Biden, who says he is Catholic, works aggressively to expand abortion. On Wednesday, Bishop Donald Hying of Madison, Wisconsin, joined the growing chorus of Catholic leaders in urging politicians to stop their “assaults on innocent human life,” Breitbart reports. “We pray for those leaders who pursue government policies and laws which seek to further entrench abortion rights and other assaults on innocent human life,” Hying said in a statement. Hying said abortions have “snuffed out” millions of unborn babies’ lives and wounded countless men...

Pope Francis Condemns Falling Birth Rates: “There’s No Future Without the Family”Mary Margaret Olohan

Pope Francis lamented news of plunging birth rates worldwide in a Friday address, warning that there is “no future” without the family. “If the family is not at the center of the present, there will be no future; but if the family takes off again, everything will take again,” the pope tweeted Friday. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data released in early May found that the provisional number of births in the United States in 2020 is down 4% from 2019. Women in the U.S. gave birth to approximately 3.61 million babies in 2020, compared to about 3.75 million births...

The Abortion Pill Has Killed Dozens of Women. Thousands Rush to ER With Medical...

On Thursday, the New York Times published a guest essay from feminist writer Jessica Valenti entitled “The Anti-Abortion Movement Can’t Use This Myth Anymore.” Valenti applauds the FDA’s new policy of allowing women to obtain chemical abortions without a doctor’s visit for the rest of the COVID-19 pandemic. She is confident that expanded access to chemical abortion drugs will provide ample evidence of their safety. As such, if the safety of chemical abortions is well documented, Valenti argues that future pro-life efforts to limit access to chemical drugs in the name of protecting women’s health can be easily dismissed...

Pro-Life Group Sets Up Mobile Ultrasound Unit in Front of Abortion Center to Save...

Grassroots pro-life advocates in Utah just expanded their efforts to reach out to mothers considering abortion. On Wednesday, Pro-Life Utah opened a new mobile ultrasound clinic to provide free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling and more to mothers outside abortion facilities in the state, according to its website. The mobile clinic currently is parked near the Planned Parenthood in Salt Lake City, which aborts unborn babies up to 22 weeks of pregnancy, the organization said. “Unlike Planned Parenthood, Pro-Life Utah is here to do everything possible to truly help women in need and empower them to make a choice that will leave them happier...
