Why I am not surprised? Hillary Clinton may have been exaggerating her tale of visiting Brazilian hospitals and claiming that half of the women she saw there were “fighting for their lives against botched abortions.”
The National Catholic Register contacted Department of State spokeswoman Laura Tischler to see if there was any record of Clinton’s trip to Brazilian hospitals. Tischler said, "I am unable to confirm where or when the trip she referred to in her testimony was — where specifically in Brazil she was visiting or when the trip occurred."

CNN has an article on the short list of Obama’s possible Supreme Court nominees. Why Jennifer Granholm would ever be considered for this post, besides the fact that she’s relatively young, a woman and is politically liberal, is beyond me. If she’s selected, it would seem rather obvious that Obama didn’t make the selection based on legal skills and experience. The fact that she’s even on the short list is a rather scary indication of Obama’s selection process.

Desiring God Ministries has put together a well-done YouTube video using part of John Piper’s response to President Obama’s declaration on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. HT: Between Two Worlds

The Telegraph’s Ed West has a piece on sex-selection abortion and how pro-choicers respond to them.

The LA Times has a story by Linda Reid Chassiakos about a mother who delayed surgery to remove a brain tumor so her unborn daughter would have a greater chance of survival. The child survived after being born at 28 weeks while the mother passed away.

The 12th Annual March for Life in Canada will be taking place today.
