False Abortion Arguments

by Kerby Anderson, Point of View: Some of the arguments used to legalize abortion back in 1973 seemed compelling at the time. But as John Lott points out in his book, Freedomnomics, these arguments for abortion all turned out to be false.

He also points out that at first some of the trends seem contradictory. Consider these four changes that occurred after the abortion decision of Roe v. Wade. (1) A sharp increase in premarital sex. (2) A sharp rise in out-of-wedlock births. (3) A drop in the number of children placed for adoption. (4) A decline in marriages that occur after a woman becomes pregnant.

These seem contradictory. Why would both the number of abortions and of out-of-wedlock births go up? And if there are more illegitimate births, why were fewer children available for adoption?

The answer to the first question is that abortion changed attitudes. With abortion as a backup, women and men became less careful in using contraceptives and were more likely to engage in premarital sex.

The answer to the second question is that before Roe, women who could not get an abortion were likely to give their child up for adoption. After Roe, those babies weren't being placed with adoption agencies.

And the decline of so-called "shotgun marriages" was also the result of changed attitudes. Many men who felt tricked into an unwanted fatherhood, were more likely to wash their hands of the affair thinking that the woman had the option of abortion. So if it's her choice, then let her chose abortion or else raise the child by herself.

When abortion was legalized, we were promised that it would reduce many of our social problems. Obviously, they made them worst. We should remember that the next time we hear how a new policy or court decision will makes things better. I'm Kerby Anderson, and that's my point of view.

Americas Largest Abortion Death Camp Opens in Houston, Texas

by Bryan Kemper: Houston, Texas now holds the shame of hosting the country’s largest baby killing factory. Planned Parenthood is opening a seven-floor, 78-thousand-square-foot abortion mill today. The new Planned Parenthood in a stairstep-shaped building will be the main headquarters for 35 counties in Texas and Louisiana.

The structure was built in the middle of four predominately Hispanic and black neighborhoods.

Last year, Planned Parenthood centers in the Houston area performed an estimated seven-thousand abortions, while providing more than 40-thousand women with birth control and emergency contraception. . . . Please pray for Houston today; your town might be next. [Full Story]

Obama May Name Supreme Court Pick Monday, Likely Pro-Abortion Elena Kagan

Update: President Obama did nonimnate Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. More will be posted on her in coming days.
---------------------
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The buzz around Washington today is that President Barack Obama will likely announce his Supreme Court nomination on Monday. When he does, several news reports citing White House officials indicate he will select pro-abortion Solicitor General Elena Kagan.

If nominated, Kagan, a former Harvard Law dean, would replace retiring pro-abortion Justice John Paul Stevens.

Kagan is an ardent abortion advocate who, at 50, would leave a pro-abortion legacy for Obama on the Supreme Court for decades to come. She would confirm the suspicion of many political observers that Obama decided to go with a radical left-wing nominee while Democrats control the Senate with a huge advantage that is expected to deteriorate after the November elections.

Senate Republicans have already promised a tough fight against Kagan. “Our nation deserves a Supreme Court nominee who is committed to deciding cases impartially based on the law, not on personal politics, preferences, or what’s in the nominee’s ‘heart,’” Sen. John Cornyn, a pro-life Texas Republican who is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said last month.

However, the lack of a legal record makes it difficult for Republicans to criticize her on specific cases that constitute the legal records of other potential nominees who have served as lower court judges.

The current high court has a 5-4 split in favor of unlimited abortions via Roe v. Wade and Kagan would be expected to continue that. . . [Read More]

Vending Machine Abortions: Planned Parenthood Telemed Process Hurts Women

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With the latest news that Iowa officials are investigating Planned Parenthood's new "telemed" abortion scheme, more pro-life advocates are speaking out on the process they consider dangerous for women. In the telemed abortion process, abortion practitioners instruct women on using the dangerous abortion drug by video conference instead of assisting them in person.

Post Office: Stamp for Pro-Life Heroine Mother Teresa Coming September

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Postal Service officials have confirmed it will print a new stamp honoring pro-life heroine Mother Teresa and that it will be released in September. The stamp has come under fire from atheist groups who say the government shouldn't be honoring a pro-life religious figure.

The USPS Mother Teresa stamp is one of 23 new issues the United States Postal Service recently unveiled for 2010.

After it came under criticism, the pro-life group "Catholic Vote Action" launched a campaign to generate support for it.

"Over 138,000 friends of CatholicVote joined together to defend the stamp to honor Mother Teresa. And the Postal Service took notice," Brian Burch, the group's president, said.

Roy Betts, a spokesman for the Postal Service, told CatholicVote yesterday, “The stamp will be dedicated September 5 [at] the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Feel free to post information about the stamp, the image and the dedication ceremony on your web site."

Burch was excited about the news but surprised at the location of the unveiling ceremony. "Wow. Launching the stamp at a church. The anti-religion radicals are going to go wild," he said.

Mother Teresa gave a pro-life speech when she accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. But when the Postal Service announced the stamp, a group called the Freedom from Religion Foundation began spreading lies about Mother Teresa, accusing this holy nun of having a "darker side," and calling her a "polarizing Roman Catholic figurehead."

"Too often only one side of this debate is heard. This time the Post Office heard from us. A separate spokesperson for USPS even told a reporter that our efforts were appreciated," Burch said. "You would think attacking Mother Teresa would be off limits. But in our world, respect and decency can be discarded so long as you're bashing Christianity. A small but vocal segment of our country will stop at nothing to cut down the role of religion in our public life."

In February 1997, in her remarks at the White House Prayer Breakfast, with President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton -- two unswerving supporters of abortion -- Mother Teresa laid out her case clearly.

"What is taking place in America is a war against the child," she said. "And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another."

Three years earlier, Mother Teresa was quoted in The Wall Street Journal saying, "America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation."

She added: "The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters."

And in response to critics who asked who would care for an unwanted child, Mother Teresa said, "Please don't kill the child. I want the child. Please give me the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted, and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child, and be loved by the child. From our children's home in Calcutta alone, we have saved over 3,000 children from abortions. These children have brought such love and joy to their adopting parents, and have grown up so full of love and joy!"
