7 Quick Takes Friday (set #97)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: The May issue of New Evangelists Monthly is out! Publix airs a beautiful Mother’s Day ad. The mainstream media Gosnell blackout is partially lifted, but still very effective. Another new, undercover video shows the legal and operating late term (up to 28 weeks) abortionists. Planned Parenthood explains their position on post-birth abortions (spoiler: not a problem). One abortion survivor owes his life to the inconvenient distance of the closest abortuary. Feminists For Life have some questions for the New York governor.

Happy Mother’s Day!!! Publix is airing this beautiful promotional advertisement for Mother’s Day. It is pro-motherhood and pro-life. Some will hate it.

Last week I (along with everyone else NOT in the mainstream media) noted how the media had maintained a blackout on abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s trial. The good news is yes, the blackout is now partially lifted. The bad news is that partially lifted means mentioned, but rarely.

Of course the abortion industry and their media minions do not want to discuss late term abortions. Gosnell is just ahead of his time in the post-birth abortion business…   or at least getting caught (see this). This is no aberration.

Not quite at the level of Gosnell, Leroy Carhart comes close. Here is how it works:

Planned Parenthood explains their position on live births, to a legislature and to late term pregnant women. It is alarming how matter-of-fact they are in their big business, baby killing service. Brutal and inhuman.

Sometimes babies live simply because the nearest abortion clinic is not conveniently located. Indiana Representative Marlin Stutzman is one such example.

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
