FOX News reports that Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest will be meeting with Joshua DuBois, Director of Faith Based & Neighborhood Partnerships and Tina Tchen, Director for Public Liaison, to discuss abortion and health care.

Rev. John Jenkins, Notre Dame’s President, has annouced that he plans to attend the March for Life in 2010 and has formed a “Task Force on Supporting the Choice for Life” whose goal will be “to consider and recommend ways that Notre Dame, informed by Catholic teaching, can support the sanctity of life.”

A woman in Botswana has been sentenced to five years in jail after she suffocated her daughter who was born alive after her mother tried to abort her.

A pregnant teenager named Tiffany Wright was recently shot and killed at a school bus stop. Her child who was delivered was in critical condition on Monday. A person of interest in the case is Tiffany’s brother. Tiffany was adopted and authorities believe 36-year-old Royce Mitchell may be the father of her child.

David Bass notes the lack of response from pro-choice groups after the murder of Jim Pouillon. I think NARAL is the only group to have issued any kind of public response but their web site doesn’t have a press release.
