Abortion Rate Decreases
According to a report released a week ago by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, the abortion rate has decreased. In 2017, the number of babies killed that year was the lowest since abortion was legalized in 1973. However, the total was still a tragic 860,000 precious lives.
Around the World
This weekend approximately 50,000 people showed up on Bratislava, Slovakia to march for an end to legal abortion. LifeSite News reports that “the predominantly Catholic country currently allows for abortions for any reason up to 12 weeks, and abortions deemed to be health-related up to 24 weeks.”
Marchers expressed support for protection of the life of every human from conception to natural death. They also sought support for more limits on abortion, expanding maternity leave and resources for those placing their baby for adoption.
Explosive Testimony in the Sandra Merritt Case
Planned Parenthood and the state of California are suing Sandra Merritt and her colleague David Daleiden for exposing Planned Parenthood’s evil business selling human organs that are cut or torn from innocent babies during the abortion process. Sandra and David are facing prosecution because they went undercover and recorded Planned Parenthood officials stating that they do just that!
During Merritt’s preliminary criminal hearing, many of the “secrets” that Planned Parenthood has so desperately tried to hide have come to light. While all are disturbing, one of the most wicked practices exposed is when the CEO of StemExpress, one of Planned Parenthood’s former “organ procurement” partners, revealed that her firm harvested human hearts from aborted babies and then sold them to researchers at Stanford University. As a witness for Sandra Merritt, Dr. Theresa Deisher, an expert in adult stem cell research who has a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Physiology.
Liberty Counsel, who is representing Merritt, reports that Dr. Deisher “testified about the perfusion technique using the Langendorff method that is meant to be used on animal hearts.
“Deisher said she must go to great lengths as a cardiovascular researcher to make sure that the mice she studies do not suffer needless pain. In fact, she noted, she would face ethical charges and go to jail if she cut beating hearts out of mice without anesthesia.
“Deisher also testified how horrified she was upon reading various studies involving baby human hearts procured from StemExpress, which the evidence at the hearing showed were sourced from Planned Parenthood. She knew those studies had to be conducted while the hearts were still beating when cut out, without anesthesia, from the aborted babies.”
We have reached a time in our society where mice have more protected rights than a human baby. May God have mercy on our country. Pray for those who work tirelessly to expose these heinous acts against the unborn.
