Donald Trump told Laura Ingraham that he's prolife. This would be a change of position since he wrote that he supported "a woman's right to choose" in a 2000 book.
Last November ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he was pro-choice and the real-estate mogul was uncharacteristically demur.

"I am -- well, I don't want to discuss right now, but you will be shocked when I give you that answer," Trump said. "Well, you will be very surprised when I give you -- I'm going to make a decision [about running for president]. And when I make a decision I'll let you know about that. But, I think you'll probably be surprised."

Then, on the eve of the CPAC cattle call for GOP candidates, Trump told talk-radio host Laura Ingraham flat out: "I am pro-life." And he repeated that declaration on Thursday.

Saskatchewan's College of Physicians and Surgeons recently revised guidelines say that prolife doctors must refer patients seeking abortions to another physician.
The new introduction to the guideline is much clearer, saying doctors who won’t perform the abortion must tell the patient up-front and refer them to another physician who will give them all the tools they need to make an informed decision.

“Any physician who is unable to be involved in the further care and management of any patient when termination of the pregnancy might be contemplated should inform the patient and make an expeditious referral to another available physician,” the preamble reads.

Planned Parenthood's Stuart Schear doesn't have much to say about Live Action's tapes. At least he's staying on message, regardless of how inaccurate that message is.
One such video resulted in the firing of a Planned Parenthood employee in New Jersey. But in all other cases, the videos are "heavily edited and manipulated," said Planned Parenthood spokesman Stuart Schear.

A study has shown the benefits of operating on unborn children with spina bifida while they're still in the womb.
A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine says that if a baby is operated on while still in the uterus, the most serious complications of the worst form of spina bifada, myelomeningocele, can be lessened.

A clinical trial of 158 women found that brain malformations were reversed in one-third of the fetuses and that almost half the babies could eventually walk without crutches.
