Joseph Dellapenna notes the attempts to recycle abortion history myths in First Things.

According to the California Catholic Daily, an abortion provider in California named Howard Pfupajema was arrested after assaulting a local prolifer who was taking pictures of him.

The AP has an article on the recent news of commercial dog cloning by South Korean researchers.
According to a report released by The Humane Society in May, 3,656 cloned embryos, 319 egg donors and 214 surrogates were used to produce just five cloned dogs and 11 cloned cats who were able to survive 30 days past birth.

Michael New has a piece in the National Review on two separate prolife goals, preventing abortions and building a culture of life.
Most of the time, the twin goals of protecting the unborn and building a culture of life reinforce one another. On occasion, though, they appear to contradict each other.

A Michigan woman has been sentenced to a year in jail and five years probation after causing the death of her newborn child (she pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide). The body of the baby boy was found in a trash can at a hotel. The cause of death was blunt force trauma. There are some background details in the Watertown Daily Times.
