TIME publishes pro-life writer: Abortion debate needs more voices

What about the women who have had abortions and now regret it? What about those who decided to have their babies? Their stories matter, too.

So says Kate Bryan – a pro-life writer, former Live Action Communications Director, and the current Director of Communications at American Principles Project. Yesterday, TIME published her article, “An Honest Debate About Abortion Needs More Voices.”

And indeed, as Kate poignantly pointed out, while numerous celebrities and other less-famous women deeply regret their abortions, pro-abortion campaigns act as though abortion is a purely positive experience.

Abortion ‘spa’ glamorizes the procedure: ‘There’s no shame in it’

Carafem, the Washington, D.C., abortion facility that sells itself as a spa, has released a new ad glamorizing an abortion procedure.

In the ad, a few uptight women sit around a table drinking tea. The socialites speak in affected voices, as they obviously avoid using the word “abortion” when discussing the circumstance of their friend. The women look snooty, and give the impression that being with them would make for a horrible day.

‘Tricked': Documentary film shines light on human trafficking in the U.S.

“I just knew that sex got me attention and attention got me something that I thought was close to love.”

These are the words of Danielle, a victim of human trafficking who began having sex for money at age seventeen. She tells her story in the documentary film “Tricked,” currently available to view on Netflix. “Tricked” is an eye-opening look inside human trafficking in the United States, and how public perception of prostitution is not grounded in reality.

‘I love you Mommy’ video has the sweetest preborn cartoon you’ve ever seen

I may be emotional after witnessing an amazing ultrasound at the pregnancy center I work for. However, even if I hadn’t seen a preborn’s child’s heart beating today, I would still want to cry after watching this video. Gocrazie, an online media portal for education, news, articles, short films and much more posted a video on their Facebook page in November titled, “I love you Mommy.” Since it was first shared, the video has been seen over 3 million times, and continues to gain comments and shares daily.

I LOVE YOU MOMMY <3 <3

Posted by Gocrazie on Wednesday, November 5, 2014

In the video, we see a woman with a little cartoon circle jumping around inside of her.  The circle represents her pre-born child who is talking to her with the sweetest voice. “Hi Mommy, this is our first day together, but you didn’t know I was there yet!”, the little voice says. As the mom puts down the pregnancy test reading positive the little baby yells, “Surprise!”

Facebook rejects picture of precious baby as ‘shocking’

Facebook says a recent Live Action News story cannot be promoted on the social media site because “the image or video thumbnail may shock or evoke a negative response from viewers.”

The “shocking” image is of baby Eli Thompson who was born last month without a nose; in the touching piece, his parents say they love him exactly as he is and think he is “perfect.”

But Facebook thinks the picture of young Eli is too troublesome to be a promoted piece, and it refused the ad.

The actual story posted on Live Action’s Facebook page has several thousand likes, and as of Friday evening, had over 150 shares, demonstrating the story actually does appeal to Facebook viewers.

State legislator condemned for saying Planned Parenthood ‘rips its victims to shreds,’ but it’s true

Last week, a number of New Hampshire fourth-graders went to visit their state legislature. They had designed a bill which would have named the red-tailed hawk as the state raptor.

The bill went down in defeat, and the media have been right to condemn the legislators who laughed at the bill and seemed to ridicule the children’s idea. This is no way to encourage young citizens to participate in a free and interactive government.

However, the media have also appeared to roundly condemn a comment from Representative Warren Groen:

The hawk “grasps them with its talons then uses its razor-sharp beak to basically tear it apart limb by limb,” State Rep. Warren Groen (R) said on the House floor as the class of 10-year-old students watched from the gallery. “And I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood.”

Waiting in abortion clinic, here’s why she changed her mind

Kimberly Henderson became a viral Internet star when she posted a YouTube video singing “How Will I Know” to her baby daughter, Vaida. Kimberly shares that doctors thought Vaida was deaf as a small baby, so Kimberly sang to her all the time.

Vaida is Kimberly’s youngest daughter, but the young mother also has three other children. Her eldest daughter, who she became pregnant with at 16, inspired Kimberly’s latest hit, “Tiny Hearts.”

In “Tiny Hearts,” Kimberly shares part of her story as a young mom:

Sometimes I feel like my whole world is crashing down
While all my friends are being young and dumb and playing around
They’re out all night living a life that I just had to let go
I watch you sleep right next to me
It’s you and me on our own
Sometimes I feel there’s a world out there I’ll never know

But I know who I am
Yeah I know who I am
Tiny hearts are in my hands

On Facebook, Kimberly posted her abortion story about her daughter, Vaida. She is an incredible example of a woman who knew she didn’t need to sacrifice the lives of her children to succeed at life.

New video details the moments stolen by abortion

What is a preborn baby? If you ask someone working at NARAL or Planned Parenthood, they’ll say that it’s just a clump of cells, a product of conception, or some other similarly dehumanizing term to deny the preborn child his humanity.

If you ask just about any other person what is growing in a pregnant woman’s womb, the answer is almost always simple and immediate: a baby. The lives of the preborn killed by abortion were stolen from children who had beating hearts, faces, and futures.

Is another Alabama abortion clinic operating without a license? Pro-life leaders call for investigation

Selma, AL is famous for its connection to the civil rights marches in 1965, but now it may be infamous for being the latest city in the Heart of Dixie to illegally operate an abortion clinic. A press conference  at 10:30 Wednesday morning, led by a host of pro-life leaders, will call for an investigation into the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic which, they say, is operating without a legal license.

The abortion facility is located at 1013 Medical Center Pkwy in Selma, and the press conference will be held across the street. Leaders say they have tried for nearly a year to ask for an investigation of the facility, and they have received no response, so they are calling media attention to it.

The facility, they say, meets the legal definition of an abortion clinic which requires private abortion practices to be licensed by the state if they perform more than nine abortions per month.
