Planned Parenthood of Birmingham Should Have Been Shut Down Like Yesterday

A September 2016 deficiency report recently released by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) reveals that Planned Parenthood of Birmingham is still failing to offer legitimate healthcare to the women of Alabama, even after replacing several staff in 2014. In 2014, Planned Parenthood was shut down for nearly a year after employees were caught […]

Marie Stopes and their despicable abortion practice. When will the media report the truth?

A new series of reports has been released which is so shocking that the British mainstream media– which usually manages to ignore the seedier aspects of the abortion industry – has been forced to cover it.  It was revealed that Marie Stopes International (the UK’s largest abortion provider) is guilty of a plethora of ethical, […]

“with my mind stayed on freedom, hallelu, hallelu”

Something significant happened in Selma today. Something that the news didn’t cover and that, maybe, even our own press release didn’t articulate. If you’d driven past Central Alabama Women’s Clinic today around 11:00 AM, you would have seen a small group of people gathered on the corner near the building. A couple of news cameras […]

An open letter to Judge Myron Thompson, regarding violence, truth, and the overuse of pseudonyms

An open letter from Sarah Howell to Judge Thompson Dear Judge Myron Thompson, I believe it would be a gross understatement to say that I found your recent ruling on the Planned Parenthood vs. Governor Bentley case unsettling. Not just a portion of the ruling, but the entire thing – all 172 long pages, each […]

Through the window of an abortion clinic

I like exploring abandoned buildings, especially old houses, with their sagging floors, peeling wallpaper, and malevolently drooping staircases. But some abandoned places are creepier than others, because of what happened there—where the silence doesn’t seem to quite fit. That’s what an abandoned abortion clinic feels like. In April of last year, I travelled with one […]

Having foetus dreams

I first heard of “abortion dreams” in university, in one of the first accounts of abortion I ever read. It was an essay published in a Norton anthology I had to purchase for one of my first university English courses, published in Harper’s Magazine in October 1990 by a nurse named Sallie Tisdale. It is […]

Huge legal victory offers proof that pro-life activists seek to help not intimidate

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously agreed to strike down a Massachusetts law outlawing pro-life speech within 35 feet of abortion clinics entrances. It was, of course, a huge pro-life victory for mothers and babies, and for those pro-life counsellors who reach out to women in crisis with life-affirming support and offer a better […]

What motivates a late-term abortionist? ‘After Tiller’ gives us a glimpse

  On May 31, 2009, late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller was shot by a mentally disturbed convicted felon named Scott Roeder. The darkness of late-term abortion and infanticide was met with the darkness of murder. In the aftermath, condemnations and accusations abounded as activists, talking heads, and politicians argued about who, exactly, had more blood […]
