A member of 40 Days for Life was praying outside a Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas when someone in a car threw a flaming object at her. 
Police arrested a driver Monday night who they say threw a flaming object from a car near the Planned Parenthood clinic on East Ben White Boulevard near South Congress. Austin police received the call shortly after 6 p.m., and members of the bomb squad responded. No one was injured and nothing was damaged, police said.

A man in Pennsylvania was arrested for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl after he tried to get an abortion for her. 
Shenandoah police say a social worker from Massachusetts reported a man using the name “Carlos” from Shenandoah was looking to get an abortion for his 12-year-old girlfriend.   

The New Hampshire Union Leader rips into Senator Jeanne Shaheen for her opposition to the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Act. 
Sex trafficking is a crime that almost exclusively victimizes women and girls. According to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, 90 percent of sex trafficking victims in the United States last year were female. Shaheen is refusing to help these abuse victims until Republicans agree to make taxpayers finance abortions. What a loathsome, cowardly, cynical thing to do.

A teenager charged with killing her mother in Bali is claiming her mother forced her to have two abortions and was attempting to force her to have a third. 
He said von Wiese-Mack had "forced" her daughter, Heather Mack, to have two earlier abortions and was seeking legal control so that she could compel a third procedure to terminate the teen's latest pregnancy.

Mack, 19, gave birth this week to a girl in an Indonesian hospital. She and her boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer, 21, of Oak Park, are charged with murder in her mother's August death. They could face a firing squad if convicted.

  1. I'm proud of my local paper for calling out Sen. Shaheen for her vote on the anti-trafficking bill. I hope the hometown newspapers of every Senator who blocked the bill will be equally straightforward.
