Jesus would hold women’s hands to support them during abortion: abortionist
This blog is filled with the latest news coming from the Pro-Life world
The abortionist who appealed to the Supreme Court in oral arguments this week says Jesus would supportively hold the hands of women as they abort their children.
Amy Hagstrom Miller, whose Texas abortion business conglomerate Whole Women's Health owns and runs seven abortion facilities, says she is "mission-driven" by her commitment "to human rights and justice."
She is fighting state legislation requiring her abortionists to have a local hospital admitting agreement, and requiring her abortion mills to have cleanliness and facility standards up to the required standards of other surgical clinics.
Legislators say the laws protect the health and safety of women. Miller says the laws were only passed to create fear and discourage women from choosing abortion.
In an interview with the pro-abortion website alternet.org, Miller explains that she reassures hesitating Christian mothers and encourages them to abort by telling them, “The majority of our patients are Christian. The majority are mothers already.”
"I was raised in a liberal Christian tradition, and I come to the work (at one of her seven abortion businesses) because of that background," she shared. "The Jesus that I was taught about would be holding the hands of women inside the clinic."
One of the pro-life laws passed in Texas is an informed consent law, which gives women the choice to look at an ultrasound of her growing baby, which must be done anyway to determine the baby's gestational age. Proponents of the pro-life law say seeing an ultrasound has encouraged many women to keep their baby and choose life.
Miller puts the law another way. "Women are forced to look at an ultrasound, forced to listen to a script, forced to endure a waiting period. All of this puts forward the notion that women are stupid." She calls the informed consent pamphlets, which give medical data and biological facts, "misinformation," and complains that they have to let women receive the information.
"Sixty-five percent of the women we serve have one or more children. They’ve all seen an ultrasound before and yet we force them to watch another as if they don’t know what’s growing inside of them," Miller explained.
She says she strives to provide an abortion facility with "physical surroundings that are warm and comforting with fleece blankets and herbal tea and lavender walls," and prides herself as giving women clients "freedom to talk about spiritual or cultural concerns... The hearts and minds of women are at the center of who we are."
"I have really supportive family. ... My parents … are very proud of what I do, as are my in-laws. They’re proud of my standing up for what’s right, that I’m taking on bullies, that we are speaking on behalf of those who don’t have a voice."She characterizes her abortion businesses as "supportive and nonjudgmental and kind."
10-Eye-Opening Quotes From Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger
Margaret Sanger has been lauded by some as a woman of valor, but a closer look reveals that Planned Parenthood’s audacious founder had some unsavory things to say about matters of race, birth control, and abortion. An outspoken eugenicist herself, Sanger consistently promoted racist ideals with a contemptuous attitude.
Read on to learn why Planned Parenthood hides behind a false memory of Sanger, and why, despite her extraordinarily prolific writing career, one rarely sees her quoted by Planned Parenthood leaders and apologists.
Woman and the New Race, ch. 6: “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.” Here, Sanger argues that, because the conditions of large families tend to involve poverty and illness, it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to pose difficulties to its family.The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.“Plan for Peace” from Birth Control Review (April 1932, pp. 107-108)
Article 1. The purpose of the American Baby Code shall be to provide for a better distribution of babies… and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.“America Needs a Code for Babies,” 27 Mar 1934
Article 4. No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit…
Article 6. No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.

Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Here, Margaret Sanger speaks on her eugenic philosophy – that only the types of “quality” people she and her peers viewed as worthy of life should be allowed to live.
Such parents swell the pathetic ranks of the unemployed. Feeble-mindedness perpetuates itself from the ranks of those who are blandly indifferent to their racial responsibilities. And it is largely this type of humanity we are now drawing upon to populate our world for the generations to come. In this orgy of multiplying and replenishing the earth, this type is pari passu multiplying and perpetuating those direst evils in which we must, if civilization is to survive, extirpate by the very roots.The Need for Birth Control in America (quoted by Angela Franks.)
Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.
New Sting Video and White Paper Expose Planned Parenthood’s Fetal Body Parts ProfiteeringAs Congressional hearings into Planned Parenthood’s fetal body parts business get underway on Capitol Hill, the Center for Medical Progress released both a new video and a white paper further detailing the abortion organization’s methods of harvesting and profiting on the sale of aborted children.
Their latest undercover video explores the relationship between Planned Parenthood’s late-term abortion clinic in Orange, CA and for-profit biotech company Da Vinci Biosciences. During the eight-minute video, Dr. Jennefer Russo, the Medical Director at Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties, details how her affiliate provides aborted fetal body parts to the company, in particular, “intact specimens.”
“They take the whole specimen,” Russo explains, before asking undercover investigator David Daleiden who’s posing as a buyer, “You’re looking ideally for an intact specimen?”
Episcopalian Priest Aborted Her Baby So She Could Finish Divinity School
Abortion advocates across the nation are trying to send the U.S. Supreme Court a message: Women need abortions to be successful.This insulting notion has been the underlying theme of dozens of stories pro-abortion women have submitted to the high court ahead of its hearing on a Texas pro-life law, which has been credited with saving more than 10,000 babies’ lives. The law is responsible for closing abortion clinics that could not guarantee they could protect the health of Texas women.
The latest pro-abortion story to be highlighted in the mainstream media is that of the Rev. Anne Fowler, an Episcopal priest from New England, who said her abortion allowed her to finish divinity school and become a priest.
Here is her story, according to an amicus brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court:
If the Reverend Anne Fowler had not had access to an abortion when she accidentally became pregnant after enrolling in Divinity School, she would never have been able to graduate, to serve as a parish rector, or to help the enormous number of people whose lives she has touched. Unable to pursue her calling or be the mother she wanted to be for the daughter she already had, she would have been broken.Fowler, who is active in the pro-abortion movement and is a leader with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, said her husband left her when she was pregnant with her first child. She gave birth to a daughter, and soon felt called to pursue the Episcopal priesthood. In 1982, during her second year at the Episcopal Divinity School, Fowler said she “accidentally” became pregnant again.
She believed her partner would not be a suitable parent; their relationship ended soon after the abortion. Already solely responsible for her daughter, Anne knew she could not complete Divinity School and pursue a career as a priest if she did not have an abortion. She has never regretted her decision and is grateful that she did not have to travel far, which would have caused her additional stress and financial hardship while she cared for her young daughter.The brief goes on to list Fowler’s accomplishments, which, she said, would never have been possible if she had not aborted her second child – though she never acknowledged that it was a “child.” Fowler currently is a chaplain for Planned Parenthood.
She meets many pregnant women who are very young or struggling economically or emotionally. Many already have children and could not handle more. Their abortions are often life-saving. Anne believes there should be reproductive justice, which means equal access for all women without having to travel further than they would for other health care.Fowler submitted her story in the same brief as actress Amy Brenneman, who said she “never, not once” regretted having an abortion.
A lot is at stake in the Texas case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, scheduled to be heard Wednesday by the high court. The Texas law being challenged requires abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges and abortion clinics to meet the same health and safety standards as other outpatient surgical facilities.
Pro-life U.S. Rep. Diane Black explained the gravity of the case to LifeNews:
Before I came to Congress, I served as a registered nurse. During my time in the emergency room, I cared for a young woman who came to my hospital after undergoing a botched abortion at a clinic that was not properly regulated. When her complications occurred, there was no answer at the after-hours number that she called and by the time she entered my care she was dying and there was nothing that the doctors or I could do to save her.Black said women’s health advocates should be fighting for the law if they truly care about protecting women.
That young woman lost her precious life; a life that could have been saved if proper regulations were in place to protect her safety and to hold the abortionist accountable. This is what is at stake at the high court.
“Life is precious – whether it is the life of the child in the womb, or that of the young mother facing an unplanned pregnancy – and it deserves to be protected,” Black said. “The deep pockets of the big abortion industry may feel ‘burdened’ by Texas’s compassionate law, but women are not – they are indeed safer as a result.”
Oklahoma Senator Introduces Bill to Criminalize Abortion as First-Degree Murder
In a move that is unprecedented nationwide, an Oklahoma Senator has introduced a bill that would criminalize abortion as first-degree murder. Sen. Joe Silk, R-Broken Bow, recently introduced S.B. 1118 which adds killing an unborn child to existing murder statutes. “No person shall perform or induce or attempt to perform or induce an abortion after conception,” it reads.
“A person commits murder in the first degree when that person performs an abortion as defined by Section 1-745.5 of Title 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes.” The bill defines abortion as “the use or prescription of any instrument, medicine, drug or any other substance or device to intentionally kill an unborn human being” and provides the unborn with protection from the moment of conception.

Actress Martha Plimpton Loves Abortion So Much She Wore This “Love Abortion” Dress
Martha Plimpton wants people to know “abortion” looks good on her.On Sunday, actress Martha Plimpton (The Good Wife, The Real O’Neals) decided to show her support of abortion – through fashion.
The dress is printed with the word “ABORTION” multiple times, along with hearts:
Amelia Bonow, who jumpstarted the Twitter hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion that urges women to share their positive abortion stories online, provided a link in the comments with which to purchase the dress online for $85. According to the site, Bonow designed the dress herself. “I’ve always wanted a shift dress that says ABORTION!” the description read. While Plimpton received much praise in the comments, some disagreed. In reaction to a picture of the dress posted on RH Reality Check’s Facebook page, a woman named Amanda wrote:
I had an abortion and support a woman’s right to privacy, and thus choice. That being said, abortion is a serious choice, and not a fashion commodity. Flippant attitudes about abortion undermine the gravity of that decision, and why it is so important it be protected, and only bolster anti-choice advocates’ attitudes that pro-choicer’s are casual about the whole thing. This dress is really disturbing, and as someone who is thankful she had the choice, pretty insulting. My choice is not a cutsie fashion statement.Last year, ABC’s Nightline featured Plimpton in a segment on the #ShoutYourAbortion campaign. “Abortion is not some crazy weird last resort,” Plimpton said. “It is a normal part of women’s medical lives.”
Activists March to Legalize Abortion in Poland Under the Slogan “Abortion in Defence of Life”
Hundreds of pro-abortion advocates marched down the streets of Warsaw, Poland to demand that the pro-life country legalize abortions and pay for them, too.Radio Poland reports the pro-abortion group organized its event on Sunday as a counter protest to a pro-life march. The theme of the pro-abortion march was “Abortion in Defence of Life” – a theme that pro-lifers called out as contradictory, according to the report.
Agnieszka Weseli, one of the pro-abortion rally organizers, said her group wants the country to legalize abortion without restrictions, claiming that currently abortions “are performed in conditions that threaten women’s health and even lives.”
Unlike most of Europe, Poland protects unborn babies from abortion in most cases. The country allows abortion in cases of rape or incest, incurable defects or danger to the woman’s life. According to The Daily Mail, pro-abortion protesters said they were concerned that the conservative Law and Justice political party, which currently is in control of the Polish legislature, could toughen these abortion laws.
During the rally, pro-abortion advocates held signs that read “We demand legal, free abortion, free creches and kindergartens.” Reports showed two women dressed as pregnant nuns to mock the Catholic Church’s pro-life position, holding a sign that read, “Our priest ordered us to give birth.”

People at the pro-life and pro-abortion rallies interacted peacefully, according to Radio Poland.
Abortion activists have been pushing the largely Catholic country to legalize abortion for many years. Last year, one abortion group, Women on Waves, was caught flying dangerous abortion pills via drone to women in Poland, LifeNews reported. According to Women on Waves, the abortion drone departed from Germany and landed at the opposite side of the river in Slubice, Poland.
