Life Links 3/28/11

New Jersey Right to Life's YouTube page has a video of U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg saying that prolifers "don't deserve the freedom in the Constitution, but we'll give them to them anyway."

He also said that prolifers "don't want other people to have their own opinions."

The second page of the New York Times obit for former VP candidate Geraldine Ferraro notes how her position on abortion affected her stops on the campaign trail.
The abortion issue, magnified because she was Roman Catholic and a woman, plagued her campaign. Though she opposed the procedure personally, she said, others had the right to choose for themselves. Abortion opponents hounded her at almost every stop with an intensity seldom experienced by male politicians.
It also shows her "personally opposed" position was a bunch of hooey on page 3.
Ms. Ferraro was a co-sponsor of the Economic Equity Act, which was intended to accomplish many of the aims of the never-ratified Equal Rights Amendment. She also supported federal financing for abortions.

In Louisville, 21-year-old Ruben Anthony has been charged with fetal homicide after he allegedly kicked his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach, causing the death of her child.
Police say it all started when he got angry with her because she would not, "watch TV or use her phone." At this point, he allegedly became violent, striking her in the mouth with his fist and causing swelling and a minor cut. Police say that's when he kicked her in the stomach.

A bomb scare took place outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Austin. The scare closed the shopping center and northbound lanes of a road. Someone saw a backpack and thought it was out of place.
The bomb squad was called out. Two in-a-half hours later, the all clear came and the backpack was found to be just that-- a backpack.

Police say they found a hair brush and ear buds inside the backpack.

The Pasadena Star-News covered a prolife march around the Rose Bowl.
Thousands of abortion opponents walked 2.5 miles around the Rose Bowl Sunday after an opening prayer by Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez.

People from all over Southern California came together for Walk4Life, organized by LIFEsocal, a nonprofit created by students and parents from Pasadena high schools, and the Right to Life League of Southern California.

The Prague Daily Monitor covered a prolife March in Prague.
About a thousand people marched through Prague centre to protest against abortions, some carrying white wooden crosses, others photos of newborn babies, pictures of saints or banners saying "Gynaecologists, Don't Be Contract Killers" and "Tolerance From Conception" Saturday.
