Despite what Live Action suggests, not all men are against abortion—many think it is a complicated issue and support their partners in their decision-making.
I fear that a possible consequence of these Live Action videos may be a chilling effect on the free and open conversation between clinic staff and patients that is such an important part of abortion care.
It must be almost election day, the “stings” are coming out.
Despite the group’s claim that the clinics “intended” to break an Arizona law against sex-selection abortion, the state says there is no evidence of a crime.
Pro-life activist Abby Johnson came to the University of Washington in Seattle last week. While I feel pro-choice protestors were disrespectful of her right to speak, Johnson’s beliefs, being played out in legislation across the country, are the far more dangerous affront to human rights and freedom, especially for women.
In preparation for what may eventually be another Lila Rose grainy expose trumpeted by the Right, it’s helpful to brush up on where millions and millions of tax-dollars are going to pay for sex “education:” ineffective and stigmatizing abstinence-only-until marriage programs.
Anti-choice arguments have grown meaner in the past couple of years. The feigned concern for women is slipping away and being replaced by a searing hatred for the very notion that women living in poverty have rights.
Sonograms don’t prevent abortions, former PP clinic manager joins Live Action, listen to an interview with Cecile Richards, and a roundup of columns on the “war on women.”
Lila Rose’s videos are dishonest on many levels, obviously so. And yet, she often gets respectable treatment in the mainstream media. It’s time to stop give Rose’s games of make-believe grown-up attention.
The anti-choice “undercover” Live Action group is announcing it has big plans for 2011.
