Pro-Life Tidbits

Our friends over at 40 Days for Life are responsible for this refreshing story from a San Francisco abortion clinic:
Planned Parenthood “escorts” twice summoned police during 40 Days for Life vigils outside the 815 Eddy St. clinic in San Francisco after a high school student shared a pro-life rap song from his Ipod with passersby...

During the first incident, Will said, he, his mother and his father were joined by five others praying outside the facility. “There were two Planned Parenthood escorts,” he said. “Many people walking down the street, hearing the music, gave thumbs up and thank yous. People going into the clinic obviously were trying to ignore the music, but kept looking over to us praying. Oh and by the way it was sunny!”

On Sunday, March 15, at 12:30 p.m., Planned Parenthood summoned police a second time over the music. “We started playing the music again, and the escorts called the police (again),” said Will. “But this time the officer did nothing but give me a thumbs up.”
And then the St. Petersburg Times tells us abortions are up because of the recession:
The pregnant woman showed up at the medical center in flip-flops and in tears, after walking there to save bus fare. Her boyfriend had lost his job, she told her doctor in Oakland, Calif., and now — fearing harder times for her family — she wanted to abort what would have been her fourth child. "This was a desired pregnancy — she'd been getting prenatal care — but they re-evaluated expenses and decided not to continue," said Dr. Pratima Gupta. "When I was doing the options counseling, she interrupted me halfway through, crying, and said, 'Dr. Gupta, I just walked here for an hour. I'm sure of my decision.'
