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...

In a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court granted an emergency injunction pending appeal, thus finding that California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s restrictions on home Bible study and worship violate the First Amendment. The Court wrote: “This is the fifth time the Court has summarily rejected the Ninth Circuit’s analysis of California’s COVID restrictions on religious exercise. See Harvest Rock Church v. Newsom, 592 U. S. ___ (2020); South Bay, 592 U. S. ___; Gish v. Newsom, 592 U. S. ___ (2021); Gateway City, 592 U. S. ___. It is unsurprising that such litigants are entitled to relief.

Pregnant Abortionist Feels Her Baby Kick As She Tears Off Leg in an AbortionSarah...

An article written by David Daleiden & Jon Shields that appeared in The Weekly Standard discussed the phenomena of abortionists and clinic workers who quit. After remarking on studies that showed that clinic workers are often emotionally drained by their work, it said: “Such studies are few. In general, abortion providers have censored their own emotional trauma out of concern to protect abortion rights. In 2008, however, abortionist Lisa Harris endeavored to begin “breaking the silence” in the pages of the journal Reproductive Health Matters. When she herself was 18 weeks pregnant, Dr. Harris performed a D&E abortion on an 18-week-old fetus. Harris felt...

Joe Biden’s Budget Funds UNFPA, Which Supports China’s Population Control, Forced AbortionsMicaiah Bilger

Joe Biden released a proposed budget Friday that would give taxpayers’ money to groups that promote the killing of unborn babies in abortions and have been linked to forced abortions in China. Among other funding for the abortion industry, Biden’s proposed 2022 budget would restore millions of dollars to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). President Donald Trump’s administration defunded the agency because of its support for China’s oppressive population control measures, which include forced abortions and “illegal” third children. Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser slammed Biden’s plan, saying it would force Americans to support “human rights abuses around...

Joe Biden’s Budget Would Force Americans to Give Planned Parenthood $340 Million MoreMicaiah Bilger

Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar organization that reported record-high abortion numbers earlier this year, stands to benefit hugely if President Joe Biden’s proposed budget passes Congress. On Friday, Biden announced a budget plan that would increase taxpayer funding to the abortion industry both in the U.S. and abroad. Among other things, the president wants a $340 million (18.7 percent) funding increase for the Title X family planning program. Much of that funding likely would go to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S. Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said Biden’s budget would force “taxpayers to bankroll the abortion...

Notre Dame Requires Students to Get COVID Vaccine, But They’re Linked to Cells From...

Students at one of the country’s most well-known Catholic universities expressed dismay this spring at a new mandate requiring all students to get a COVID-19 vaccine, despite connections to abortion. Two University of Notre Dame graduate students said the university also recently began providing the Pfizer vaccine to the student body even though it is “morally compromised,” The College Fix reports. Catholic university officials “deliberately failed to acknowledge the morally compromised origin of the Pfizer vaccine that will be distributed to the student body,” students Joseph Klatt and Christopher Romanoski wrote in a letter to The Observer. “The administration’s official communications have made...
