From the US? Considering an abortion? Go to, a database of abortion malpractice information in the USA.

Question of the MONTH

So this Question of the Week is going to be Question of the Month instead!

This month's poll is about the dismal media coverage of the pro-life movement. I obviously have a bias though, and I want to know what you think! Also, how do you think we can get our views out there in the media? How do we get newspapers and congress to notices hundreds of thousands of protestors instead of ignoring the single biggest protest that happens every single year?

March for Life 2012 USA

Amazing video by Marc at BadCatholic gives testimony from a variety of young pro-lifers at this year's March for Life in the USA.

Amazing Quote: "Here is the problem, undressed: If human embryonic life is morally worthy of protection, we have permitted sixty million murders under our watch. Faced with this prospect, many of us - maybe even most - flee from the facts. We deny that the living human embryo is "truly" or "fully" human life." From MCCL Blog

Liberals include abortion as part of their platform

Well, looks like I have no party to vote for any more. LifeSiteNews explains how the liberal party has decided to include abortion as a key strategy in their rebuilding process, after the fiasco that was the last federal election. Well, definitely never voting for them again.

Interesting side note: they also decided to support the legalization of marijuana. I have no opinion on pot being legal or illegal because I just don't really care, as long as its kept away from kids, but this is sure to get a lot of my peers to vote liberal.

Comments on Abortion Twitter Conversations

I've been wanting to go through some abortion twitter conversations for awhile now, and I've finally gotten around to it. Now, none of the statements some of these pro-choicers make are particularly strong arguments for abortion, but I just had to deal with some of these oft-repeated ideas. Hopefully someday soon no one will be repeating them anymore, because honestly pro-choicers, you do our job for us when you talk like this. Thanks so much ;)

Now lets start out with one of the most ignorant statements I've ever read:

I don't care if you're an atheist, rationalist, fucking queen of the fairies, if you're pro-life, I unfollow. B'bye.

Ohhh scary. I'm so sad that someone as rude and as frightened of opposing opinions won't be following pro-lifers on Twitter. Actually, I think it's quite pathetic that he or she advertises this fact. To willfully be ignorant of opposing ideas, and to brag about that fact in a day and age where knowledge is so valued, is quite disappointing.

 And while  men should shut up and GTFO of the argument, prolife women should be ashamed for selling out their gender

Yes, I'm SO ashamed of trying to change our society's disgust with pregnancy and fertility (things that are still today, associated mostly with femininity! oh, the shame!), and to stop the horrific, sexist, and discriminatory practice which disproportionately end the lives of pre-born females and handicapped children. Even though I'm not the one trying to justify the killing of pre-born girls and boys, I'm apparently the one who's sold out my gender. To whome, I wonder?

When talking about the beginning of life versus the whole life, this is what some pro-choicers have to say:

 Realtin Connor 

 I'm not comparing "it to a draft of a car". I'm pointing out the problem with confusing "beginning of X" and "X".

I'm afraid basic mathematics and physics pretty much debunks your entire argument since most mathematical frameworks take "the beginning of x", xo, to be a part of the set of {x} as kind of a given - this is such an obvious given that I have never, in all of my years studying math and physics at the university and post-grad level, have had to provide a proof to demonstrate this. Even semantically, the fact that you are talking about the beginning of something is based on the assumption that you are still talking about that something. Hard to grasp, I know.

This conversation is also hysterical. When a pro-lifer asserts that a human being develops linearly from conception onwards, just claim that they are using circular reasoning and unsupported fact:


 A developing human develops from conception into more advanced stages of human, but remains human all along. 

 Realtin Connor 

 I like  circular reasoning & its penchant for calling its unsupported opinion "fact"! Says a lot! 

I don't really know what to say here, except clearly the pro-choicer is grasping at straws. Its a basic fact that human development starts at conception. Any other point along the development chain, and that human has existed at a previous point in time. For some reason though, this does not equate to human life for pro-choicers. Who's using odd reasoning now?

The best response to "when life begins" that I've seen is this one:

 Realtin Connor 

   Life began billions of years ago. Wanna keep swinging at air?  

Really. Wow. I think it is quite obvious that the pro-lifer was talking about individual, human lives. For instance, my life began at conception. Pretty sure I haven't been alive for billions of years. Way to be obtuse.

Now, this is my favourite conversation, because it just shows how ridiculous, rude, and close-minded some pro-choicers are:

 Todd Lusk 

 So your chicken farmer lady is a poultry abortionist!  See how dumb that sounds?  is Prolife.

Yes, we definitely see how dumb that sounds. Thank goodness all the pro-choicers I personally know and interact with don't talk like this, otherwise I would never have bothered to take the time to really research my beliefs, because what the heck is the point of learning more about abortion when this is the argument that pro-choicers come up with! And they clearly think that they are so clever and sarcastic. Now, if they were arguing against vegetarianism they might have a bit of a point. However, I'm not a vegetarian. Neither are many pro-lifers. We all, however, are not cannibals, as the majority of humans are not, so their argument pretty much breaks down at the analogy.

Girl Denied Transplant due to Mental Disability

Please everyone, share this story with as many people as possible, and go to the facebook page of the CHoP to let them know what you think! A little girl named Amelia is being denied life-saving treatment due to her intellectual disability and concern over her quality of life 30 years down the road once her parents are no longer there to care for her. I can hardly believe that there are people, doctors and social workers no less, who would do and say such things to a beautiful young girl and her family. This type of discrimination is outrageous, and is all the more horrifying because it is directed at a child.

Details concerning this specific case from the Hospital have yet to be released, but you can read the family's testimony here.

2012/04/20 EDIT: Turns out that the public outcry had an amazing impact on this decision - Amelia is now (as of Feb 15 which was the most recent article I could find) being considered for a kidney transplant! How amazing that the public rallied around this beautiful little girl. This really gives me hope for others with disabilities - even amongst all of the media attention being devoted to why those with disabilities would not want to live (look here or here for recent examples), enough people saw Amelia's life as valuable (as all lives are) to make a difference.

Seeing Hope (5): Back to Life

"January, 1973 Roe v. Wade declares abortion as a woman's right. Since then an estimated 54 million have been aborted in our nation.

This spring, 39 young women, each signifying a year marked by Roe v. Wade will walk over 250 miles from the nations largest abortion clinic in Houston, Texas, back to the Dallas court house where it all began to call our nation Back to Life."

This is an amazing idea, and I look forward to following their blog and learning more about what kind of message these young women will promote as they bring the US "back to life".

More Carleton Controversy: Referendum to Ban Pro-lifers on Campus

Double posting today because I just read this on Carleton Lifeline's blog. This kind of censorship is what pro-life Canadian students absolutely have to defeat, or the battle will be lost.

Ask Them What They Mean By Choice

On January 22nd, respond to NARAL's "Blog for Choice Day" by asking anyone discussing choice what exactly that euphemism means. Hopefully this gets people thinking about abortion and gives some attention to our point of view. Make sure you get involved! :)

See Jill Stanek's blog for instructions, and spread the word!

Mainstream media going undercover

Not sure what to think about this since groups like Live Action have done something similar. I do wonder if the reporter will actually be fair and unbiased ... perhaps he should talk to girls that this pregnancy centre has helped to get a different perspective?

Down's Syndrome

A friend of mine was discussing an acquaintance the other day. This acquaintance just had a baby. You'd think that having a baby is an exciting thing! But instead of being happy for her acquaintance, she focused on the tragedy of giving birth to a baby with Down's Syndrome. The family knew ahead of time that their child was disabled, and she just couldn't understand it. Especially because this family already had 5 children before this little one.

"What a sad thing. They went into it knowingly. Well, they made their choice."

Where is the joy for this new baby? :(
