Gallup: Percentage of Pro-Abortion Americans Drops to Record Low A new Gallup survey out today finds the percentage of Americans who identify them selves as supporting legalized abortion has dropped to a record low. "The 41% of Americans who now identify themselves as “pro-choice” is down from 47% last July and is one percentage point below the previous record low in Gallup trends, recorded in May 2009,” the polling firm noted. On the other hand, 51 percent of Americans call themselves pro-life, one percentage point away from the record high. The percentage of Americans identifying themselves as pro-life has trended higher since 1995, when the partial-birth abortion debate began in earnest and ultrasound technology made it so pictures of unborn children were the first baby pictures most parents saw. Gallup has found the pro-life position significantly ahead on two occasions, once in May 2009 and again today and the number of pro-abortion Americans has steadily dropped.

Second Catholic College Drops Health Care Over HHS Mandate A second Catholic college has dropped health care coverage for students because of the Obama HHS mandate requiring it to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs. From its founding, Ave Maria University has required students to have health insurance and made an inexpensive group policy available to them. The University does not subsidize this plan and the entire cost is borne by those students purchasing the health insurance. Most students are covered under the plans of their parents, but approximately 15% of Ave Maria’s students currently are covered by this policy. It specifically excludes benefits for elective abortion, sterilization, and other morally objectionable services because the University is Catholic and follows the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The ad campaign was a mandate included in the final health care law.

Doctors Feed Aborted Girls to Dogs to Hide Sex-Selection Abortions In a news story that sounds like it is more out of a bad science fiction movie than reality, a newspaper in India reports doctors in one city are so desperate to hide evidence that they are doing sex-selection abortions that they are feeding the remains of aborted girl babies to dogs. Some physicians in the city of Beed, India are engaging in the practice, according to India Today, which spoke with Varsha Deshpande of Lek Ladki Abhiyan, an NGO working against the practice. Maharashtra’s Public Health Minister Suresh Shetty also admitted to the newspaper that he had heard of reports of the practice taking place.

American Airlines Rejects Passenger for Pro-Abortion T-Shirt Pro-abortion advocates are up in arms over a story claiming an abortion advocate was rejected from an American Airlines flight because she wore a graphic t-shirt with profanity and a pro-abortion message.

Hustler Runs Graphic Attack Against Pro-Life Woman Columnist The softcore pornographic magazine Hustler is coming under heavy criticism today for running an offensive, graphic image portraying a conservative pro-life female columnist engaging in a sexual act because she dares oppose funding of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. New York Daily News columnist S.E. Cupp is the subject a photoshopped attack image under the headline “celebrity fantasy.” Hustler condemns Cupp for opposing forcing taxpayers to finance America’s largest abortion business with the tag “What Would SE Cupp look like with a —- in her mouth?”

Surrogate Pregnancy Should Not Become a Commercial Business I don’t believe in surrogacy. But if it is to be allowed, commercial surrogacy should be made against public policy just as we now do non vital, living organ donation. Alas, there is an ill-advised bill in the New Jersey Legislature to legalize commercial surrogacy.

Supreme Court: No Social Security for IVF Kids Conceived After Parent DiesThe Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that children conceived posthumously with IVF are not entitled to Social Security survivor benefits. In 1939, the Social Security Administration put in a provision that allowed dependent children to collect their parent’s benefits as survivors. In 1939 they did not have a crazy fertility industry willing to make children en masse for any reason for anyone. So the 1939 definition of “dependent child” was open for interpretation in 2012.
