Life Links 9/16/11

Yesterday, the Virginia Board of Health voted 12-1 to approve Virginia's new regulations for abortion clinics. All Governor McDonell's appointees voted in favor of it and 3 of former Governor Tim Kaine's nominees voted in favor of it as well. The law will take effect on January 1.

Representatives of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Roanoke are crying because they'll need to spend "hundreds of thousands" to bring their clinic into compliance. Planned Parenthood's web lists 6 clinics in Virginia which provide "abortion services."

In response to the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform's Truth Truck, a pro-choice individual has created a pro-choice comic book called "Think Pro-Choice," though there's not much thinking in it. Notably, they don't include the Truth Truck images and have a little blurb noting that "CCBR images would be UNACCEPTABLE in mainstream media."

And why would that be? Is it because they show the remains of a tiny human being mutilated by abortion choice.

In the Calgary Herald, Susan Martinuk discusses the Canadian case in which a mother guilty of infanticide was let off.
This determination that human life somehow has a lesser value when first born is the logical ending to decades of abortion PR, convincing women — and apparently girls — that human life has no value at any time while in the womb. Based on this decision, that devaluation has now been taken one step further in that a child has no value when first born. It makes one wonder where the cut-off date now stands for the state to protect a live child. Will that line soon move to a week? A month?

New York's NBC affiliate has a story on a child whose heart was drained of fluid before he was born.
