Life Links 1/27/12

The Michigan Daily has an insightful piece by Cassie Balfour, a pro-choice student, who recently took the time to attend a meeting of the university's prolife student group.
It's pretty easy to be pro-choice at the University. I may have been raised in the religious west side of the state, but I grew up in East Quad, where being pro-choice is as ubiquitous as the Bob Marley posters pasted on dorm room walls.

It's easy to get trapped in an echo chamber when you think the Truth belongs to your side. But even if we can't agree, we can occasionally step across the protest line, stop the chanting, and listen.

A district judge has denied a Justice Department attempt to stop Colorado-based sidewalk counselor Kenneth Scott from talking to drivers as they enter Denver's Planned Parenthood.

Katrina Fernandez writes about beauty in the prolife movement.
I will never forget the one woman I met on Monday. She was there wearing an "I had an abortion" t-shirt. She said her abortion was 26 years ago and it was the best thing she'd ever done. Can you image living as long as she has and the only grand achievement she can claim for herself was having an abortion two and half decades ago?

Overheard: Student for Life of America's Kristan Hawkins in an interview at National Review Online.
You know, I saw two bumper stickers on a car the other day, and it still frustrates me when I think of it: One side of the car had a "You Can't Be Catholic and Pro-Choice" bumper sticker, and the other side had an "Obama 2012" bumper sticker. Can you say disconnect?
