I remember vividly the last meeting I had with Kortney Blythe Gordon before she and Jon were killed in that horrific October accident.

Kortney and I were the unofficial March for Life working group at Students for Life of America, being as we both had over a decade of MFL organizing and outreach between the two of us.  Our meeting was to plot and plan for that big day, and we were relishing the tasks at hand.

Pro-life advocates in Chicago are concerned about a newly proposed city ordinance that would put in pace a law that prompt concerns about whether pro-life groups and activists would enjoy their rights to free speech.

The City of Chicago has proposed an Ordinance (No. 10-8-334) to which both the Pro-Life Action League and its legal counsel, the Thomas More Society, object. They say the measure would impose undue burdens on free speech and public assembly, and would even threaten to suppress the constitutional rights of citizens to express their opinions about contentious issues of public policy in the public square and “marketplace of ideas.”

While the majority of doctors and organizations assure us that abortion is a safe and casual procedure with no negative consequences, there seem to be real, and more than rare risks for the woman who has an abortion. While there may not be an established causative relationship, there is a definite correlation between abortion and negative health outcomes for women, and it is unlikely to be the case that the association is all but causal. The results of the four largest, record-based studies in the world have shown abortion to be associated with increased risk for mental health problems of various forms.

Like many of you, I made time to catch the most recent GOP debate this past Saturday night hosted by ABC and Yahoo. I winced through the usual back-and-forth between candidates and, at times, their evasive answers to controversial and defining questions. Per usual, abortion, gay rights, and health care were all hot topics.

After noticing the candidates’ responses to questions tailored toward gay rights and, more specifically, how ABC’s hosts were tailoring those questions, I couldn’t help to think of abortion.

TUCSON, Arizona, January 9, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An Arizona college student who stopped in at her workplace wearing a pro-life t-shirt quit her job rather than obey a supervisor who ordered her to turn the “Pray to End Abortion” shirt inside out.

Renise Rodriguez, a 21-year-old religious studies major at the University of Arizona, worked as a Girl Experience Associate for the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona in Tucson. When she went to her office on Jan. 3 during her off-duty hours to prepare materials for a meeting, she was told twice by a supervisor that if she planned to stay in the office, or attend a troop meeting, she would have to turn her shirt inside out.

Would you be surprised if I told you this quote came from a pro-abortion advocate?  Well, it did.  Here is the quote in its context from Salon’s recent interview with Choices Women’s Medical Center President Merle Hoffman:

“Interestingly, although the standard pro-choice line is essentially to let the woman define the embryo or fetus for herself, Hoffman has a more controversial stance: ‘In the beginning they were calling it a baby. We were saying it was only blood and tissue.
