Life Links 3/5/14

A pro-choice legislator in Alabama is claiming prolife legislators wouldn’t be prolife if their daughters were impregnated by a black man.              
But during the debate, Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, said that his Republican colleagues would support abortion if their daughters were impregnated by black men.

"Ninety-nine percent of the all of the white people in here are going to raise their hand that they are against abortion," he said. "On the other hand, 99 percent of the whites who are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion."

As horrible as these comments are, I’m guessing the national media will look the other way.  Listen to the audio which makes Alvin Holmes sound even more awlful as assumes nearly every white person would be ashamed to have a bi-racial grandchild. 

At the Huffington Post, a University of Michigan student (who is a former Planned Parenthood intern) has a rambling, poorly edited piece regarding access to abortion which has a number of gems.

In fact, I did not know anyone who was pro-life growing up except for the one house in my town that posted pro-life lawn signs....

Other laws were put in place to incite guilt and trickery like prohibiting doctors who work for a state-funded women's health service from referring patients elsewhere for an abortion.....

All of these circular mechanisms entrap women with financial and emotional burdens that actualize into limited freedom....

Planned Parenthood of Arizona is suing to prevent a state law regarding abortion drugs from taking effect.
The 2012 law now being implemented says any medication used to induce an abortion must be administered "in compliance with the protocol authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,'' as outlined in the final labeling instructions for that drug.

In the case of RU-486, that means only through the seventh week of pregnancy. But Planned Parenthood advertises that it uses it into the ninth week.
