Did you know that about 45% of women who had abortions in the US in 2010, had already had at least one prior abortion?  Look it up here.   Table 19.  55% of women had zero prior abortions.  100%-55%= 45% of women had one or more prior abortions.

Just thought you’d want to know.

Last week as Students for Life of America was on the University of Michigan campus with our What Has Roe Done of Us?

Appeals court upholds Texas abortion restrictions

April 2nd, 2014 Comments off
AUSTIN, Texas (March 28, 2014) – Dr. Lester Minto knows he won’t be able to reopen his clinic after a federal appeals court upheld tough new abortion restrictions in Texas.

Minto has been providing abortions for three decades, but he closed his clinic near the Mexico border earlier this month because of a law that imposes some of the nation’s strictest limitations on the procedure. The law, which was overwhelmingly approved last summer by the Republican-controlled Texas Legislature, has helped force numerous clinics to close. Read more…

Woman Flees State to Protect Child In Her Womb

March 28th, 2014 Comments off


This sounds like something out of a dystopian science fiction novel.

A married couple wanted to have a baby but the wife could not carry a child to term.

So they recruited and hired a surrogate mother. Crystal Kelley was a single mother who had just lost her job as a maid. They offered her twenty thousand dollars to carry their embryo for nine months, deliver the baby, to hand over to them. She agreed to the deal. Kelley needed the money and she would be helping a couple have a baby of their own.

There were some morally problematic aspects to this process. They fertilized several embryos. I have no idea how many were implanted but I suspect some were thrown out. Sadly, this is done routinely.

But, in any case, doctors inserted some embryos and one implanted in Kelley’s uterus. She was pregnant and everyone was happy. The couple would call her every day to see how she was doing.

And then everything went sideways. Life News reports:


They are bringing out the fake blood and shackles

Pro-abortion advocates know they are losing, so they are growing desperate.

With abortion facilities closing down, pro-life state legislation being passed in record numbers, and national polls confirming that a majority of our nation is against abortion (CNN’s latest poll says 58% are in favor of banning almost all abortions), they know the tide has turned against them. And with our What has Roe Done for Us? Tour hitting campuses this spring and national social media campaign underway, we know their old scare tactics are no longer working.  Read more…

First Lady Should Condemn China’s “War on Women”—But Will She?

When Michelle Obama arrives in Beijing today with her two daughters, Sasha and Malia, she will be the envy of Chinese women. She has what almost none of them have. Not only does she have two children—most urban Chinese are limited to one—but she has two daughters. Read more…

Would You Have Aborted Miss Pennsylvania?

March 5th, 2014 Comments off

by Wes Walker

This story comes close to home for me.

Someone I know occasionally cares for a wonderful little girl, the same age as my eldest child, whose mother was raped. And every time I hear anti-life advocates nonchalantly declare abortion to be the natural response for any woman who learns her rape has resulted in pregnancy, I seethe. Read more…
