A Dutch group promoting women doing a medical abortion themselves sent on Saturday its first "abortion drone," carrying pills to kill unborn babies, from Germany to the strictly Roman Catholic country of Poland, and called it a "success," as "two Polish women swallowed the abortion pills."
The drone departed from Frankfurt an der Oder in Germany and landed at the opposite side of the river in Slubice, Poland, says the Amsterdam-based Women on Waves group on its website, which also boasts that German police tried to intervene "but the drone pilots were able to safely land the drones at the Polish side."
The police, who say the group violated "Arzneimittelgesetz," or the country's medicine laws, later confiscated the drone controllers and personal iPads. more >>
Earlier, this week the Guttmacher Institute released a study on the demographics of women obtaining abortions. (They release a report of this nature approximately every seven years.)
This report provides useful information to all sides of the abortion debate. The annual abortion surveillance reports published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provide some demographic data. However, not every state reports data to the CDC and there are large disparities in the quality and reliability of data from other states. The Guttmacher report, which does a nationwide survey of women seeking abortions, is more reliable and more comprehensive.
The best news for pro-lifers from this report is that the abortion rate continues to fall among teens and minors. This is one of the most unheralded public-policy success stories of the past 25 years. more >>
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley recently made his state the fifth to ban an abortion procedure in which a human fetus is dismembered in the womb and removed piece-by-piece.
Governor Bentley signed Senate Bill 363 Thursday, having Alabama join Kansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia in banning dismemberment abortions.
Alabama Citizens for Life National Director Cheryl Ciamarra praised the passage of SB 363, which was titled the "Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act." more >>
We put in our application to adopt in February, announced our plan to adopt on Mother's Day, and became "home study ready" on September 11. In 2014. It's now been two years of waiting and praying.
Mostly patient, I'm finding myself becoming less serene and more frustrated at this wait — with its end yet to be determined. A prepared adoptive family may wait years for a placement. The abortion clinics are full … why aren't adoption agencies teeming with children?
Our society makes abortion so easy. It's cheap, it's accessible and it has even become glamorized (thanks to Planned Parenthood's extensive Hollywood outreach). We hear all the time how abortion is so common, and it is. But that doesn't make it right. more >>
"Armor Of Light" will broadcast nationally on PBS Tuesday, May 10. It's a movie that shows the heart-wrenching fight of Lucy McBath after the murder of teenager Jordan Davis, and one pastor's journey to explore the pro-gun and pro-life arguments.
The compelling documentary follows Reverend Rob Schenck, founder of the Christian outreach program Faith and Action, on his quest to start a dialogue with his Christian brothers and sisters on gun laws and how they align with what the Bible teaches.
McBath, who is actively fighting for stricter gun laws after her unarmed teenage son was shot and killed on November 2012, is a big part of "Armor of Light." The grieving mother, also a devout Christian, vowed to fight for stricter screenings for those who want to acquire fire arms. She believes it's what God has instructed her to do after losing her own son to unwarranted gun violence. more >>
Planned Parenthood is fighting a decision by the state of Kansas removing Medicaid compensation for the nation's largest abortion provider.
Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri filed suit against Kansas in federal court on Thursday in response to the state Department of Health and Environment terminating their participation in Medicaid.
"We will fight with all we have to protect Kansans' right to choose their health care provider," said Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri President and CEO Laura McQuade in a statement. more >>
