Life Links 10/8/10

Linda Meek, the former director of a Tulsa abortion clinic pleaded guilty to reporting a false bomb threat. She'll be sentenced in January.
Meek, who is no longer employed at the clinic, told the court Thursday that she bought an egg timer at a department store Aug. 13, set it so it would start ticking, and put it in her trash can. She then called the police and reported a bomb......

Meek has never given a reason for falsely reporting a bomb.

Abortion is playing a role in Brazil's presidential election.
Abortion has become a big issue in Brazil's presidential election after religious activists dropped support for leading candidate Dilma Rousseff due to her past support for legalizing it....

A 2007 interview Rousseff had given declaring it was "necessary to legalize abortion" as a matter of public health that began furiously circulating on the Internet. Many evangelical churches called on their followers to not vote for her....

Rousseff herself said she underestimated "the conservative forces" ranged against her, and blamed the Internet campaign and "religious values" on her lower-than-expected score.

Since becoming Lula's chosen successor, she has changed her tone on abortion, saying Tuesday she is "above all, in favor of life."

A "For Sale" sign has been posted outside abortionist George Tiller's old office.
David Gittrich of the anti-abortion group Kansans for Life sent an e-mail to members Thursday mentioning the sign. He also floated the idea of buying the former clinic and turning it into a memorial for the fetuses aborted there.

This gives you a good look into the ideology of the members of the Detroit Free Press editorial board. They decided against endorsing a local judicial candidate in the primary election solely because she was endorsed by a prolife group.
