Saturday, October 12, 2013: Pro-Abortion Thugs @ March for the Babies 2013 – Melbourne, Australia
Saturday, October 12, 2013: As police refused to help the peaceful marchers participating in a planned event, more than a thousand pro-abortion activisits mobbed, menaced and physically assaulted pro-life advocates and a member of Parliament at the Australia March for Life.
Bryan Kemper reported he and other pro-lifers were hit, stepped on, and had things have been thrown at him by pro-aborts, who blared loud heavy metal rock music, blew air horns and shrill whistles and pounded on drums to keep pro-lifers from being heard. They also took over the stage and ripped down the banners. Later, a member of Youth for Life Australia received this angry, shrill phone call: “I saw you at that march on Saturday, you’re nothing but a pro-life bigot, child f**ker, you molestering as***le, I know where you live and I’m coing to burn your house down.”
But one woman who came to participate in the anti-life protest said afterwards, “I came to this rally and watched both sides with curiosity. I have to admit I was planning to join the ‘other side’ and I was pretty excited, it was to be my first ever rally. I got the shock of my life when I saw how ugly they were and I had to sit down to stop myself trembling. I am having triplets, cancelling my abortion on Monday morning. Thank you. My heart has been changed.”
Sunday, October 6, 2013: On the eve of the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
Faye Arellano stood quietly outside a Catholic church in Toronto, holding up a pro-life placard and a rosary. Her peaceful protest suddenly turned ugly when an unknown bystander grabbed her by the hair, smacked her to the ground, kicked and punched her repeatedly, then pulled a knife. A good samaritan helped shield her from the knife as police arrived and arrested the attacker. Faye, who sustained a concussion, says she lost her placard during the assault, but when she was rushed to hospital, she still had her rosary in her hand. “Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen.”
Monday October 14, 2013: Another abortion clinic in Ohio has shut down
The Cleveland Center for Women’s Health, owned by late-term abortionist Martin Ruddock, is the third abortion clinic in Ohio to close its doors in the past six months. Ruddock has a history of running afoul of state health regulations. Upon inspection in 2006, Ruddock’s clinic was cited by the Ohio Department of Health and closed temporarily for failing to meet basic health standards, such as checking a patient’s vitals before performing a late-term abortion. The permanent shut-down is due in part to Ohio’s law prohibiting abortions late in pregnancy.
The “save the life of the mother” exception is a lie
Way back in 1972, when abortion’s legality was still being debated, the medical director of the Pittsburgh Planned Parenthood, Dr. Rose R. Middleman, was quoted as saying: “It’s extremely rare, if nonexistent, for a physician to have a medical reason to abort a woman in the 7th or 8th month.”
The reason is that no matter what, the mother must deliver the child, either via labor and delivery or via a C-section, The only difference between a late abortion and an early birth is whether the child is killed or cared for.
Dr. Middleman’s statement “It’s extremely rare, if nonexistent” was in 1972! Since then, medical science has advanced tremendously, with younger and younger premies surviving. My brother’s triplets were all 2 to 3 lbs and nearly died shortly after birth. They’re all college graduates now.
How much MORE true is it now that “late abortion to save the mother” is nothing but a political slogan?
