Top 10 Pro-Life News Stories of 2009

Bioethics, Health Headlines
President Barack Obama, abortion, the Supreme Court, and healthcare dominated pro-life news in 2009. As we look back on 2009, the first with a new pro-abortion president, it seems to me that the pro-life movement essentially is on the defensive. Thanks to a pro-abortion president and Congress, pro-life advocates spent most of their time this last year attempting to hold back the opening of the floodgates ushering in an expansion of abortion and taxpayer financing of it. With the health care debate continuing into the new year, those efforts will be forced to continue -- although the potential for pro-life gains in the 2010 elections provides significant hope for the future.

In each, the conversation (or, in one case, the oral sex) is interrupted by an unidentified middle-aged man, who instructs the kids in the Planned Parenthood philosophies. My Take? (more…)

So far, eight women have died from the use of the abortion drug, including women going to Planned Parenthood abortion centers in California. Planned Parenthood had been telling women to use the abortion drug vaginally, even though the FDA indicated oral use is safer for women.

Bioethics, Children's Health, Woman's Health
  A story out at the end of last week, Planned Parenthood Abortion Businesses Getting Bigger, asserts that “Planned Parenthood broke the $1 billion income threshold for the first time in its last fiscal year and pro-life advocates have often accused the ‘non-profit’ group of an obsession with making money. That appears to be the case …” Even more shocking is the assertion that this “non-profit” organization may be seeing itself as "above the law" -- at least according to researcher and family expert, Maggie Gallagher, who asks the question, "Is Planned Parenthood Above The Law?"  The article was distributed by Universal Press Syndicate and appeared on Fox16.com on April 22, 2008.  This is an excerpt from that article: (more…)
