Life Links 7/17/13

A woman in Texas is making and selling voodoo dolls of Governor Rick Perry and donating the proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
"I was inspired to make them because I wanted to figure out something I could make that would send a message and raise money for Planned Parenthood," said Sinched. "What's better than sticking pins in Gov. Goodhair or burning him at your own doll sized stake? I would probably best describe myself as pro choice and pro life. No one ever wants to face the abortion choice but it happens. I believe no one has the right to make that choice but the woman it affects.

Governor Lincoln Chaffee of Rhode Island vetoed a Choose Life license plate bill because he claims it violates the separation of church and state. 
Chafee wrote to lawmakers in his veto message that the function of a license plate is "to register and identify a motor vehicle."

"It is my belief that state participation in the transmission of funds to this organization would violate the separation of church and state, one of the fundamental principles upon which our state was founded," he wrote.           

A man in Ireland is trying to prevent his girlfriend from going to Great Britain for an abortion.  He claims she is being pressured by her family.
He says his girlfriend's family is of the view she will be ruined if she has a child with a non-white man. The couple are both foreign nationals.

The man sought court orders to stop his girlfriend leaving Ireland until it can be established she is acting from her own free will.

The orders were not granted but his girlfriend did come to court this afternoon.

Texas Senator Wendy Davis should really provide some evidence for this claim about post 20 week abortions.
In nearly all of these cases, a family in tragic circumstances has had to make the difficult and private decision to let go of a much-wanted pregnancy because of a major medical concern.
Also, notice how Davis brushes off the 20-week ban because post-20 week abortions are only 1% of abortions but then says the lack of a rape exception is "no small matter."  Rape is typically given as a reason for around 1% of all abortions and in all likelihood an even smaller percentage for women who have abortions after 20 weeks.  Logic fail.
