Choosing to Reverse the Abortion Pill

A woman’s right to give an Informed Consent may be typically violated by abortionists. They are, after all, in the business of killing babies rather than saving them. All they need is the woman’s signature for consent to their treatment. For an early term pregnancy, they will have women take the Abortion pill before leaving their office.

The Abortion Pill is a drug that will prevent a fertilized egg to attach to the placenta, thus depriving living cells of needed nutrition by which they grow and develop. These cells will die within three days from lack of nourishment. The woman must then take a second pill, a drug that induces cramping in order to expel the dead tissue.  If a woman were to change her mind after taking that first pill, abortionists will say there is no turning back.

Colorado House Kills Three Pro-Life Bills

Three pro-life bills were presented in a single meeting of the House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee on February 9th : abortion pill reversal information (HB17-1086), registration and inspection of abortion facilities (HB17-1085), and defining life as beginning at conception (HB17-1108).

The testimony in favor of the bills was impressive and came from multiple perspectives including doctors and nurses, lawyers, and even women who have successfully saved babies by using the abortion pill reversal treatment. Local Rep. Lois Landgraf aided the process by asking good questions of those who came to testify.

Alabama Supreme Court Shows the Way

The Alabama Supreme Court, on the last day of 2016, unanimously ruled that a wrongful death lawsuit can proceed.

What makes this statement extraordinary is that the wrongful death in question is of a “non-viable fetus,” a pre-born baby who allegedly died as the result of malpractice by a doctor.

Sanctity of Life Sunday 2017

It was gray and cold; the weather seemed appropriate to the event at hand. It was Sanctity of Life Sunday, January 15th, 2017, and we were remembering the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade ruling on that winter day forty-four years ago when that coldest of practices, abortion, became the law of the land. The death toll recently passed 58 million. We mourned their loss on Sunday, but we didn’t linger in the gray mood. In fact, the dominant feeling of the day was hope.

Our group of pro-life warriors represented at least three generations, our youngest participant having barely reached her 23rd birthday and our oldest in her 80s. We shared hot cocoa, home-baked cookies, and our stories of hope.

Texas Moves to Stop Fetal Body Parts Trafficking

Just in case you concluded that the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress made no tangible difference to the state of abortion in the United States, new regulations (as reported by LifeSiteNews) from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services will require Texas abortion facilities to bury or cremate the bodily remains of aborted babies starting December 19.

No profit can be made on baby parts that have been properly buried.

Reflections from the Sidewalk, Part 3

I am feeling victorious this week. As the 40 Days for Life (https://40daysforlife.com/) Fall 2016 Campaign ended on November 6th I reflected on the difference this peaceful, prayerful vigil made in our world. Record numbers of people came out to the sidewalk to pray in 367 cities in all 50 states of the U.S. and 23 countries. We know of 717 lives that were saved in the course of the 40 days, and there is no telling how many hearts were changed. Two days later our country elected a vocal advocate for life instead of a politician bent on expanding abortion in our wounded world. While it’s true that our battle for life is not over, we can certainly celebrate this step in the right direction. Will we succeed in putting an end to abortion in our lifetime? I don’t know, but it looks better today than it did a few weeks ago. In the meantime, I’ll keep heading out to the sidewalk to pray. I hope you’ll join me.
