This Week’s Pro-Choice Mind Benders
Recently, Life Dynamics did a phone survey and contacted all of our wonderful Life Talk subscribers. In the survey, we asked what people liked, disliked, wanted to see more of, and what changes we should make. Many of the people we talked to stated they liked it when we shared the items in the news that make you do a double take.
If you don’t know what that means, keep reading. You will…
So here are a list of this weeks finds:
1.) Presbyterian Minister Says Unborn Baby Only Becomes a Person “When They are Loved”
LifeNews reports that pro-life author Dave Sterrett wrote in his book, Aborting Aristotle: Examining Fatal Fallacies in the Abortion Debate, that he once met a Presbyterian minister who believed a baby isn’t truly a person until he or she has been loved.
He explained, “A Presbyterian minister in my city once said that he would support his teenage daughter to get an abortion. When another pastor asked him, ‘When do you believe a human person begins to exist?’ The Presbyterian minister replied, ‘I think someone becomes a person when they are loved.’”
2.) Head nurse at abortion clinic: Staff get “excited” by injuries to women
Live Action News reported that for her book “In Necessity and Sorrow,” pro-choice writer Magda Denes did extensive interviews with clinic staff, witnessed abortions, and examined the remains of aborted children. In on of those interviews with abortion clinic staff, the Director of Nursing for one clinic stated:
“In some ways it is very boring, these abortions — the same thing day after day. In fact the nurses are excited about complications because it’s something different.”
Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that after all the interviews and everything she witnessed in the clinics, the writer, Magda Denes remained pro-choice…
3.) Abortionist: ‘My last boyfriend was a pastor’
In a self-written article from someone who claims to be a pro-choice Christian, Abortionist Caroline Payne explains why she does abortions:
“Who wants to be an abortionist? I do. And I don’t have a nose-ring or a tattoo. I’m a 5’ blonde from Ohio and my last boyfriend was a pastor. In fact my Midwest, Christian upbringing is largely responsible for my belief that providing abortion services is one of the most meaningful ways I feel I can contribute to making the world a more fair and equal place for women…”
Apparently, Ms. Payne has never seen women being dragged into abortion clinics for abortions they don’t want by the man who got them pregnant…
But then she says this:
“And most importantly, I think it is fair to children…”
Take a moment to process that. She believes its fair to children because “..they are born into a world where they are wanted, and loved, and cared for, and have the resources they need to thrive.” She then adds:
“I think abortion is a social good and a tremendous way in which physicians can contribute to a more socially just world.”
This one is making my head start to hurt.
4.) Reality star says people with Down syndrome should be ‘put down’
24-year-old Ursula Presgrave, a former reality television star in Britain is being investigated by police after she posted on Facebook last Sunday that babies born with Downs Syndrome should be executed. The irony here, is that this statement has gained the attention of the police, but Facebook told to people who complained about it, that it “doesn’t violate our community standards.”

5.) Rep. Nadler: Bill That Requires Bringing Abortion-Surviving Babies to Hospital ‘May Kill Children’
Recently, the House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504) which says “Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.” It also “prohibit(s) a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.” Seems logical right?
N.Y. Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler spoke out against the bill “…not because it changes the standard of law or has anything to do with born-alive infants, but because it mandates that a child be brought to the hospital where medical care might indicate that that child in that situation should not be brought to the hospital. It may kill children.”
He continues to say that “It may be that the baby is too frail to transport, but along comes this bill and says, we don’t care about the real situation that doctor faces with that infant. We know how to practice medicine in every situation – we in Congress. So we’re going to say it must be brought to the hospital, even if that may kill the child.”
So he is saying that a baby that has survived an abortion, and might have injuries, should not be taken to get medical care because they might not survive the journey. Under that same line of reasoning, very few people would be eligible to be transported to the hospital and/or use ambulances.
