Tyndale House Publishers recently released a book being marketed as “the most technologically advanced pregnancy book in the history of the world.” In addition to advice from obstetricians and the latest findings from neonatal studies, The Wonder Within You by Carey Wickersham includes smart phone scan codes which enable expecting mothers to view beautiful video clips of preborn children at each week of pregnancy. All of these clips have been uploaded to YouTube, where they are freely available to the public.
Coral Springs Ministries released a series of pro-life videos called “The Truth about Abortion.” The videos, which were uploaded on January 15, 2009, feature comments from former abortionist Dr. Robert Siudmack.
In the first video, Siudmack states that life begins at conception:
As a doctor, I know, as do my colleagues, that life begins at conception. That life begins the moment of conception is no longer a matter of personal opinion. It is an established medical fact. And this fact is not in dispute in any reputable medical textbook in the world. At the beginning of conception, a distinct, living, and whole human organism is formed.
We’ve all likely heard the argument people like to use about how if you don’t like something, don’t use it or don’t do it, but don’t take away somebody else’s “right.” It’s commonly stated when it comes to abortion and contraception. That argument is already weakened when we consider the number of coerced abortions, but it may further be weakened when it comes to contraception.
A recent piece from Public Discourse warns “Attention, Low-Income Women of Oregon: Your Reproduction Is Now the Government’s Business.” The piece explains that the state has implemented a new contraception metric. Low-income women who receive government-funded health services will now be bombarded with questions about their plans for pregnancy and contraception methods…
One expert, Dr. David Prentice, flew in from Washington, D.C., to testify. Dr. Prentice is the Vice President and Research Director for the Charlotte Lozier Institute, as well as an Adjunct Professor of Molecular Genetics and an Advisory Board Member for the Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center. He has personally performed federally funded research on human tissue, but never on fetal tissue.
FOX 46 anchor Bill Melugin in Charlotte, North Carolina, shared a news report on Facebook that has people talking about “choice” and abortion in a whole new way.
Melugin interviewed Autumn Barnes, who took the first pill (mifepristone) of the RU-486 abortion pill regimen and regretted it, wondering if there was some way to reverse the process. To her relief, she found Dr. Matt Harrison, a creator of the Emergency Abortion Pill Reversal Kit, who administered progesterone injections in an attempt to reverse the effects of the pill. Barnes later delivered a healthy baby boy. The news report states that there are 300 physicians in the abortion pill reversal network, and as of the date of the video, 137 babies had been born thanks to the reversal:
On Monday morning, Operation Rescue, in a piece titled, “One Hour From Death: Abortion Patient Warns of Incompetence, Squalor at North Carolina Abortion Mill,” shared the story of “Amanda” and her abortion experience at the Hallmark Women’s Clinic in Fayetteville, North Carolina, with abortionist Melvin L. Henderson.
In no way is the piece’s title an exaggeration. Actually, “incompetence” and “squalor” may be putting Henderson’s actions lightly. It is a helpfully detailed account of Amanda’s experience but is extremely disturbing, and some readers may have difficulty reading the whole thing.
Dr. Anthony Caruso was a leading OB/GYN specializing in in vitro fertilization (IVF) when a series of events cause him to make the decision to leave the industry. Despite the fact that he had created and celebrated the lives of countless children, he could no longer justify the destruction of life that was occurring.
Former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson was pivotal in legalizing abortion in New York before Roe v. Wade. After he became pro-life, he said, “Fewer women would have abortions if wombs had windows.”
Nathanson’s own pro-life conversion came after he observed preborn babies on ultrasound, which was a new technology at that time. He believed that because preborn babies went unseen, it was easy to dismiss their suffering and death in abortion. Because the babies are hidden, they often were (and still are) disregarded by abortion supporters, who focus exclusively on the women they think abortion helps (despite numerous studies showing that abortion is detrimental to women’s mental health). Nathanson believed that if people could see preborn babies nestled in their mother’s wombs, many would find abortion unthinkable.
Innovative scientists at the Institut Marques in Barcelona, Spain, have made an amazing discovery. Preborn babies can hear and respond to music much sooner than previously believed.
“For the first time ever,” it can be scientifically proven that a preborn baby detects and responds to sound at 16 weeks gestation.
The Blaze reported recently that Syrian doctors saved a baby girl by emergency C-section after her mother had been injured during a bombing attack. When removed from the womb, doctors saw that the baby had been hit by shrapnel.
Much to the doctors’ relief, the baby girl was still alive (warning, graphic medical scene):
In a new viral video starring Bill Nye, the famed “Science Guy” declares that laws protecting “unborn people” are “based on ignorance” and reflect “a deep scientific lack of understanding.” He also says that if you support such laws, you “literally or apparently literally don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Nye’s video was released during an ongoing battle in Congress over sending taxpayers’ money to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Several large media outlets have glowingly covered the video, including the Washington Post, Newsweek, and the Huffington Post.
Nye’s central argument is that human embryos should not be protected by law, because many of them perish from natural causes before they implant in the womb.
On September 22, Chloe Dunstan was due to give birth to triplets: two boys and a girl. But early in July, midway through her pregnancy, the Australian mother faced an impossible choice: continue with the pregnancy and lose her baby girl (who was deprived of oxygen and nutrients), or deliver early at 28 weeks, which could put all three babies at risk.
Doctors recommended that Chloe consider letting her preborn baby girl die in order to give the two baby boys better odds of survival. But in an effort to save all three babies, Chloe decided to deliver early. On July 3, she gave birth to triplets – Chloe and husband Rohan’s fourth, fifth, and sixth children: Henry, Rufus, and “miracle” baby Pearl. All three babies survived, and arrived home from the hospital before their September due date.
