Indiana Planned Parenthood Closes Five Centers After Hiding Abortions with Sex Abuse…Indianapolis, IN (–Planned Parenthood of Indiana says it will close five of its 34 centers across the state due to changes in the way the federal government allocates family planning funds.  The decision to close the centers comes after an expose’ found two of the centers hiding instances of possible statutory rape.  The centers are closing despite the record amount of money the abortion business received from the federal government in the last fiscal year.  The total government grants and contracts received by PPFA affiliates from government sources including state, local and federal governments, increased from $337 million to $350 million.

Christian Band BarlowGirl Hits on Women’s Post-Abortion Pain in Song, “Tears Fall”…by Steven Ertelt Editor, September 8, 2009–The popular all-girl Christian rock band “BarlowGirl” hits on the emotional pain women frequently experience following an abortion in a new song.  The track “Tears Fall” in their new album “Love and War” is a reminder that abortion hurts women as well as unborn children.  The piano-based ballad is written from a post-abortive woman’s perspective and shares her painful memories and dreams of children who will never experience life.  The band, comprised of three sisters, has often tackled pro-life topics and it has focused on purity and abstinence for its teenage and college-aged audiences.

Britain’s Nationalized Health Care System…from Life Issues Institute by Bradley Mattes–Sarah Capewell’s son is dead because of Britain’s nationalized health care system.  Little Jayden was born premature at 21 weeks and 5 days after conception.  If Jayden had been born just two days later, doctors would have worked to save his life.  But the cutoff age for a premature baby under Britain’s National Health Service rationing guideline is 22 weeks. Forty-eight hours denied Jayden the lifesaving healthcare that he needed to live.  Even without it, he breathed on his own for two hours – a sure sign Jayden was a fighter.  In spite of Sarah’s pleas with doctors to save his life, they refused  to offer even the most remedial care.  They told Sarah that before 22 weeks gestation, Jayden  was only a  fetus and had no  human  rights.  This and  worse is what  we can expect if President Obama successfully imposes government-controlled healthcare on American citizens.  From the very first day, such a system would be desperate for money to keep it afloat.  Nancy Pelosi told reporters that half the bill “will be paid for by squeezing excesses out of the system.”  This means the rationing of healthcare – denying basic medical treatment to our most vulnerable citizens – would become commonplace.  You and I can’t let that happen.
