The Pro-Life Community is Calling for Legislature to Protect Women Who Go to Planned Parenthood

The Pro-Life Community is Calling for Legislature to Protect Women Who Go to Planned Parenthood
Do you remember the name Tonya Reaves?  She was in the news about a week ago.  She wasn’t one of the victims of the Colorado shooting or involved in the Chick-fil-A controversy.  She was a 24 year old woman who died at a Planned Parenthood here in Chicago after having an abortion. That might be... Read more »

Stunned.  Horrified.  Add your own adjectives.  The most jaw dropping part about it is that it continues!

The Abortion I Never Had

The Abortion I Never Had
I wrote this last summer, but I’ve been thinking about it recently. I work with several single mothers in various age and ethnic groups.  Some are in management and some are on the low rungs of  the corporate ladder.  So low that they need  government assistance.

The Komen Foundation said it was halting all grants to Planned Parenthood due to the... Read more »

unPLANNED by Abby Johnson

I read Abby Johnson’s book, unPLANNED.  It is a rare look at the abortion issue from both sides of the “fence.”  As a young college girl, she volunteered for Planned Parenthood and rose through the ranks (even getting an Employee of the Year Award) of the organization in her eight years there. Abby grows from that naive young... Read more »

Senator Durbin, Title X and Me

I wrote an email to Senator Durbin expressing my concerns about my tax dollars being used for abortion.  This was the Senator’s response: The Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, H.R. 1, would eliminate the grant program of the Public Health Service Act, Title X. In addition, an amendment to H.R. 1 agreed to by... Read more »
