Unlimited abortion in Russia?
J.D. Griffin
What impact does widespread abortion have upon a nation and its people? Psychologically speaking, the needless slaughter of countless unborn children has brought about the unwelcomed consequence of the devaluation of innocent human life. This being true, the question of how abortion has impacted the demographics of nations still remains. Briefly examining the example of Russia should prove to be highly effective in answering such a question. In 2008, LifeNews.com reported on Russia’s ever...Read More

New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof Fails Abortion Quiz
J.D. Griffin
In May, Nicholas Kristof, an op-ed columnist for The New York Times, wrote an article entitled “Religion and Sex Quiz.” Instead of helping inform his readers, Mr. Kristof provided an excellent example of the flawed logic of abortion-rights advocates. The first question was “The Bible’s position on abortion is?” The author provided three choices and then, at the end of the piece, informed readers the correct answer is that the Bible never mentions abortion. Defenders of life are well aware that...Read More

ABC's Private Practice: TV Drama or Planned Parenthood Infomercial ?
J.D. Griffin
On May 12, ABC’s Private Practice appeared to be more of a pro-Planned Parenthood infomercial than a television show. Kate Walsh, who stars in the program as Dr. Addison Montgomery, is, in real-life, a diehard Planned Parenthood activist. In the episode, Dr. Montgomery is pitted against pro-life fertility specialist Dr. Naomi Bennett. Viewers are introduced to a pregnant woman named Patty who desires a partial-birth abortion procedure because a previous one was unsuccessful. Montgomery agrees...Read More

Abby Johnson Exposes Planned Parenthood's Motives
J.D. Griffin
In a previous post, it was noted that, despite its attempt to convince the public otherwise, Planned Parenthood is not a safe place and trusted friend for women and young girls. Abby Johnson, former director of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, TX once believed the Abortion chain’s lies. She began working at Planned Parenthood because she believed that it was important for women to have access to affordable contraceptives. As Johnson explains in her book Unplanned, she soon found that...Read More

Abortionist in the spotlight: Carhart Profile in WaPo
light4life
It’s almost too difficult to know what to say about the July 24th profile that the Washington Post did on Dr. LeRoy Carhart, the late term abortionist who transferred his practice to Maryland last year after more restrictive laws were passed in Nebraska where he had been conducting his abortion business. With new restrictions slated to go into effect in Virginia at the beginning of 2012 and the anticipation of more clients, Carhart is also considering an expansion of his current clinic and...Read More

Pro-Life: Pro-Child & Pro-Woman
J.D. Griffin
Democratic Party leaders believe the key to being successful in 2012 is to focus efforts on winning the votes of women. The way in which they purport to do so might come as a surprise. In April, staunchly pro-abortion Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was appointed the head of the Democratic National Committee. She wasted no time in chastising those who took a firm stand in support of defunding Planned Parenthood to protect both women and children. As LifeNews.com reports,...Read More

Unplanned: Abby Johnson Shares Story of Pro-Life Conversion
J.D. Griffin
As LifeNews.com reported in late 2009, Abby Johnson, then director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, TX, resigned her post due to having a change of heart about abortion. As the first chapter of her book, Unplanned, explains, Johnson’s whole life changed when asked to assist in an abortion procedure involving the use of ultrasound. Johnson held the ultrasound probe while the abortionist set about his task. What she saw next was in complete opposition to everything she had believed or...Read More

Life: The Beginning and The End
light4life
At the heart of so many raging debates in society today are the eternal questions of how is life defined and when does it beginning? Science, however, manages to alter this debate on a regular basis. Let’s look at a few examples from recent news. First, the story of Frieda Mangold (courtesy of the National Catholic Register). After spending just 21 weeks and 5 days in the safety of her mother’s womb, Freida was born in Germany. Today she holds the record for Europe’s most premature baby and...Read More

Planned Parenthood: Focused on Abortion Revenue--Not Aiding Women and Children
J.D. Griffin
Despite Planned Parenthood’s best efforts to convince the public otherwise, their organization is not a safe place and trusted friend for women and young girls. Much to the contrary, Planned Parenthood is a business—wholly focused on revenue from abortion—not helping women. This should come as no surprise as Texas Right to Life has reported that The Planned Parenthood Federation of American has adopted a “new patient services initiative” which will require all of its 95 affiliates to operate at...Read More

Massachusetts: Unexpected Prosecution in Death of Unborn Child
J.D. Griffin
Unfortunately, Massachusetts in one of only twelve states in the entire country that does not have a fetal homicide law. Therefore, it was unexpected when the death of an unborn child led to a charge of manslaughter last year. The Boston Herald reports that Ayanna Woodhouse was charged with, and eventually pled guilty to, assaulting a pregnant woman and manslaughter for causing the death of the woman’s six month old unborn child. The attack took place in April 2010, after which the mother was...Read More
