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...

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Fights in Court for Pro-Life Law...

Pro-life advocates in South Dakota had waited patiently for almost a decade for a positive legal response to HB 1217, a law passed in 2011,which among other things required that a pregnant woman consult with a pregnancy help center, ensuring that she had all the facts available, before deciding whether or not to abort her unborn child. But with Judge Karen Schreier involved, the chances were slim to none. True to form, last month Judge Schreier refused to dissolve the injunction she’d issued in June 2011 that blocked the consultation component. Fortunately, the three-day wait period eventually...

Florida Abortionist With a History of Botching Abortions is Shut Down for GoodTom Ciesielka

A notorious abortionist in Port Charlotte, Florida, has permanently closed his abortion venue, following a yearlong investigation led by Reprotection, Inc., a national women’s watchdog organization that works to shut down dangerous abortion providers. Together with Thomas More Society attorneys and concerned Florida citizens, Reprotection brought multiple complaints against abortionist Ali Azima and his Venice Women’s Health Center to the attention of the Florida Department of Health. After receiving reports from eyewitnesses in Port Charlotte about Azima’s repeated endangerment of patients, Reprotection’s investigation verified the abortionist’s history of medical negligence, previous medical license suspension, and lack of a...

Human Life Begins at Conception, When a Unique Human Being Comes Into ExistenceRandall O’Bannon...

When the cell was first discovered (and named) by Robert Hooke in 1665, it was hailed as a major discovery. However it was initially thought to be just a cell wall containing a mass of some sort of undifferentiated protoplasm. It took years for scientists to learn just how complex that “simple cell” really was. Gradually, they realized that even the standard animal cell contained many different highly specialized organelles–structures that perform various jobs inside cells. For example, these complex biological machines keep the cell healthy and thriving by handling critical manufacturing, processing, transportation, and communication functions for the cell. Even...

2,000 Health Care Workers File Lawsuit Challenge Governor’s Vaccine MandateLiberty Counsel

Liberty Counsel has filed the reply in support of a preliminary injunction on behalf of more than 2,000 health care workers against Governor Janet Mills, health officials of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and five of Maine’s largest hospital systems.
