A shocking video of the realities of abortion.This is a very brutal video and is NOT for the faint of heart. But if you need to convince someone that abortion kills a human being, this one will make it very clear.
This is not to be seen by children or anyone whose sensitivity to the abortion issue would be harmful to them. However, to those who make a mockery of the work of the movement, it is essential that they see the "difficult" truth.
Jill Stanek posted this video from the Center fro Bio-Ethical Reform.
CBR is a group that believes in order to for America to end abortion, America must see abortion. When it comes to the politicians, i must agree. Perhaps our Congressional leaders should post this reality in the Congressional Record while they discuss the funding of Planned Parenthood.

Good News out of BaltimoreThe First Amendment is alive and well, at least for the time being. Such sentiments follow the U.S. District Court's ruling in the lawsuit filed by the Archdiocese of Baltimore after that city attempted to impose unconstitutional ordinances to restrict pregnancy centers from operating and offering help to women and children.
Care Net, the national network of pregnancy centers, told LifeNews.com the ruling will send a message across the country that similar legislative efforts by abortion advocates to shut down pregnancy centers cannot be upheld.
“The decision is a victory for pregnancy centers who for years have encountered hostile legislation aimed at shutting them down,” said Care Net President Melinda Delahoyde. “A victory for pregnancy centers is a victory for women facing unplanned pregnancies, women who deserve life-affirming options and abortion alternatives.”
This decision will help pro-lifers in New York City, another pace of hostility to the efforts of pregnancy centers to provide real help to women.

Over 50,000 March in San FranciscoEvery year the Walk for Life in San Francisco increases as pro-lifers in the West realize the power in making a public stand for life.
This year's Walk saw over 50,000 in attendance.
Click the link for pictures of the the walk. Be aware however that there were counter-protesters who also showed up to taunt the pro-life marchers. They are the strange ones - living in a world of empty absurdity.
We applaud the efforts of those who participated in the effort and encourage them to join their local right to life chapters in order to continue these efforts to end this terrible nightmare in our nation. There is much grass roots work to be done if we are going to change this culture for the better.
Over 400,000 march in Washington demanding protection for the unborn childFilling planes, trains and automobiles, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers traveled to the nation's capitol for the annual March for Life. The excitement and determination of the throng was especially evident as they marched from the mall to the steps of the Supreme Court building. There in front of the courthouse, members of "Silent No More" held signs which said that "We regret our abortion." Many women provided testimony of the damaging effect that the abortion had in their lives.
Earlier in the day the crowd heard from organizer and founder Nellie Gray who introduced political, religious and public figures who spoke of the need to restore legal protection for the unborn child.
The weekend prior to the March saw numerous events, including a Students for Life Conference that brought together over1700 students from across the nation. The annual mass at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception was filled to capacity with over 10,000 participants. The next morning over 27, 000 students attended the mass at the Verizon Center.
Numerous meetings were held with representatives throughout the senate and congressional office buildings. following the march Rock for Life held a concert near the Union Station.
Pro-life leaders met throughout the weekend and discussed strategies for ending taxpayer funding of abortion giants such as Planned Parenthood. The ghastly shadows of the revelations out of Philadelphia were on everyone's mind.

The Butcher of Lancaster Ave - Abortionist Kermit GosnellBy now some of you may have heard about the horrors that were happening over the last 20 years at 38th Street and Lancaster in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Then again unless you paid attention these last few days, you may have missed what should be the nation's number one story on the despicable practices of a human being against his fellow human beings.
What is just as bad is the revelation that state and local authorities were aware of the squalid conditions and refused to put a stop to this killer of women and children.
All one needs to do is read the Grand Jury Report to once again know why we must criminalize abortion and restore protection to the unborn child.
I will keep you posted on the latest, but here is my first thought.
THIS IS NOT ANYTHING NEW.
In 1978 an expose ran in the Chicago Sun Times exposing the grisly abortion business.
Nobody cared then. For over 30 years this kind of disgusting activity has been able to continue unstopped because of the graft and complicity of those in power.
It is time for local,state and federal authorities to stop these butchers from killing children and killing and maiming women.
How ironic that the story should break just prior to the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
Or perhaps - providential.

Tragedy in TucsonRegardless of one's politics the terrible tragedy in Tucson yesterday reminds us of the deep and profound concern we as a society have for human life. We join in mourning the deaths of those six innocent people killed by an evil hand. We pray for the recovery of those injured and their families, including Gabrielle Giffords, Congressional representative for District 8. We condemn the horrific actions of this gunman and ache at the senseless loss of life.
On a personal note, the loss of Judge John Roll is of particular pain. Judge Roll was a fine judge and a wonderful human being. He was known to many of us both in the legal community and through his church. Prayers for his family and friends as well as for all those who lost loved ones should be high on our priority list.
At the same time we must remember why we mourn the loss of a human life. It is because all human life is sacred. No one has the right to kill an innocent human being. As our society takes a moment to reflect on this tragedy, let us commit ourselves to addressing problems in a non-violent way. Let us commit to respecting the rights of all persons and appreciating their unique presence in our world. Let us stand for the principle that violence is not the way to solve societal problems. Perhaps if we all commit to living our lives with greater respect for the dignity of all persons, the lives of those lost will remembered in a way they could appreciate.
