40 Days for Life Kickoff Vigil + LATE BREAKING NEWS

They held the third annual kickoff candlelight vigil near the Miramar Family Planning Associates office tonight.  There was a turnout of around 50 to 60 people.  Speakers included Trippy Seelig, coordinator for San Diego/Miramar, and Roger Lopez, husband of Sue.  40 Days for Life of San Diego County now includes three areas, San Marcos, Miramar, and now the El Cajon clinic where we've had vigils on Fridays and Saturdays.  There were a couple of prayers to end abortion and for the closing of that abortion mill, and a rosary procession.  I was able to get a couple of sponsors for the upcoming Lifewalk October 29 at Mission Bay.  The next pro-life event will be the Life Chain.


A Congressional committee has taken the first steps in investigating the Planned Parenthood abortion business over abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up cases of sex trafficking.  See also here and here.

In a related vein state lawmakers in Pennsylvania have called for swift approval of two measures designed to increase oversight of abortion providers and limit taxpayer funding for these procedures.

live births following abortion and experiments

In an earlier email and blog entry I mentioned that the salt poisoning method of abortion was still occasionally used.  This article suggests the method is more common overseas in the United Kingdom, which has about the highest abortion rate in Western Europe.


I saw the article on the Facebook page Pro Life Pagans, which I am one of the admins for.  I haven't studied paganism that much, and it's kind of a long story how I got involved with that page.  One of the other admins just put that article up along with a few other articles dealing with live births following abortion, and use of such babies for experimentation.  The articles are pretty horrific.  One even mentions using ova from aborted girls as part of in vitro fertilization.

Abortion and Fetal Pain

Lifenews has reported on two measures in Alabama and Idaho that would restrict abortions after 20 weeks on the basis that the unborn can feel pain at this point.  They are long overdue measures.


This is an often overlooked aspect of abortion.  Judging from the unborn child's response to stimuli at this point, abortions have often been quite painful, and they have almost certainly been more so in the past.  Years ago the leading method of late abortion involved injecting a caustic salt solution into the amniotic sac.  There's little in the way of a dead layer of skin to protect the baby at this point, so it would be like salt in an open wound.  It would take more than an hour to kill the baby this way, during which time nothing is being given for the pain, and there have even been instances where the baby has survived long enough to be born alive.  This procedure has largely been abandoned because of the risk to the mother's health, but there are still occasional instances of its use.
