Life Links 8/5/10

In South Carolina, an organization which helps pregnant teens and young moms has moved in and renovated a former abortion clinic.
An old abortion clinic on Laurens Road in Greenville had a new tenant on Wednesday.

Little Steps is a center for pregnant teenagers and young parents.

When the organization took over the building in March it was a dilapidated, moldy mess.

I'm not sure a Carroll County Times letter to the editor writer named Jim Sipes really know what he "completely" believes.
I am in agreement that abortion is the taking of a life. I completely believe this. However, I also believe that no man or government has the right to dictate to any human being what they can do with their bodies.
One wonders how Mr. Sipes would argue if someone wanted to pass a law that would allow them to use their bodies to kill him. If the government can't dictate what any human being can do with their bodies, then why can't someone strangle Mr. Sipes?

The city of Chicago has dropped charges against a Northwestern graduate student who was arrested while praying outside of Planned Parenthood.
The Chicago Police Department had no comment on Holland's dismissal. Earlier it had contended that Holland violated the city's new "Bubble Zone" ordinance, which prevents people near a health clinic from approaching within eight feet of another person with the intent to speak to them or hand them a leaflet without their consent. It also prevents people from interfering with another person's ability to enter or exit the building.

"According to the report the offender stood within an inch of the victim, prayed out loud at a high volume for over 10 minutes," Chicago police spokesman Roderick Drew told

Ultimately, Drew said, Holland was arrested because he "continued to block customer access to the establishment."

Holland denied the allegations, telling he never stood in front of the door and never moved from where he was seen standing in a YouTube video of the incident, and that if Planned Parenthood had released its security tapes, they would have proven that.
