abortion workers dance after botched abortion
On Friday, October 21, an ambulance rolled up to
Affiliated Medical Services (AMS) to take away yet
another woman to a nearby hospital after an
apparent botched abortion. Abortionist Bernie
Smith was reportedly on duty.
to watch the video on YouTube. We posted the video
October 27, and since then, more than 15,000
people have viewed it.
AMS staff can be seen laughing, dancing and doing
the limbo as the woman was taken away. One AMS
staffer even threatened vigilers, saying, “You’re
lucky it isn’t you in the hospital.”
AMS’s consent forms
(available publicly on their website) state,
in part, “Complications, including death, may
Those who lobby for abortion’s legality claim that
if abortion were made illegal, women would have to
resort to dirty, back-alley abortions. But the
reverse has actually happened — as was sadly illustrated with
Kermit Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” abortuary in
Philadelphia, the dirty, back-alley abortions are
legal and no one is watching.
This is at least the third time this year an
ambulance has arrived at AMS after a botched
abortion; sidewalk counselors recorded two
separate ambulance visits on April 8. Abortion
facilities in Wisconsin are not subject
to health inspections. Some days the smell of
death — blood and flesh — can be smelled wafting
out of AMS when the staff open the doors.
AMS has been the site of 40 Days for Life for three
years now. Sidewalk counselors and prayer warriors
are present at AMS year-round as well. 40 Days
vigilers were in front of AMS when this occurred.
Women have been taken to Columbia St. Mary’s after
botched abortions, forcing a Catholic hospital and
staff to clean up the abortionist’s mess.
Family Action endorses personhood amendment
Wisconsin Family Action (WFA) has endorsed the
Wisconsin Personhood Amendment, legislation
that would amend the Wisconsin Constitution to
apply personhood rights to preborn children at all
stages of development. WFA is an
associate of Focus on the Family. Click here
for the WFA legislative memo urging
co-sponsorship of the personhood amendment.
Pro-Life Wisconsin agrees with WFA’s legal
findings and conclusions.
Forsythe of Americans United for Life - the
pro-life attorney Wisconsin Right to Life
brought in for their Day at the Capitol in
February to oppose a personhood amendment in
Wisconsin — seems
to be warming up to the idea of personhood!
Forsythe recently penned a column in the Washington Times
entitled "Saving Personhood" in which he argues
that "recognition of the personhood of the
unborn child is a movement as old as English
common law." According to Forsythe, "[s]tate
protection of the unborn child as a person is no
longer a novel thing. It grows year by year,
state by state, and the public supports it." Click here

Amendment, please go to www.PersonhoodWisconsin.com.
Catholic hospitals partner with abortion-training
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), as of
this fall, is now training ob/gyn medical
residents in abortion
procedures. MCW has partnered
with the Ryan Residency
Program, a George Soros-funded
“initiative” to push abortion training into
medical schools. A 2010 New York Times
article revealed that the new abortion frontier
was training ob/gyn medical students in
abortions, to bring abortion into every doctor’s
office in the U.S.
We already know that MCW uses aborted fetal
body parts and embryonic stem
cells in research projects.
MCW is a private college (unlike UW-Madison,
which is state-funded), so state laws regarding
the use of state funds in abortions do not
MCW partners with
Columbia St. Mary’s and St. Joe’s Hospital in
Waukesha, both Catholic hospitals, for its
family residency program.
next challenge: Not too many people, but too few?
LONDON (Reuters) -- If the world follows the
demographic habits of Europe -- and that's a big
if -- by the year 2200 it could be home to a
population of less than half its current level,
living in housing built for almost three times
With the global population estimated to pass 7
billion on October 31, many of policymakers'
short-term worries revolve around providing
resources for the additional 2-3 billion people
expected to be born in the next half-century.
Numbers of this magnitude inevitably conjure up
terrifying visions of shortage and chaos. But in
fact improvements in food production and
technology have allowed population growth to
continue unimpeded and relatively smoothly, and
the real potential nightmare is of a rapidly
aging population, combined with collapsing
birthrates in both rich and poor states.
Many demographers and long-term planners say the
challenge for the next century will be less
dealing with growing numbers of people and more
managing the much larger population of aged and
perhaps dependent people while finding new
strategies to deliver prosperity, jobs and
The trend has already contributed to the current
global financial crisis by driving up health and
social care bills and perhaps also undermining
productivity. But while politicians tie
themselves in knots over short-term worries,
experts say there is not enough discussion of
longer-term demographic challenges.
"It's not a world that's going to look anything
like any world or population that has existed
before," says Jack Goldstone, professor of
public policy and a leading demographics expert
at Washington's George Mason University.
"We thought that overpopulation was going to
force humanity to expand outward to the stars.
That doesn't look like the problem at all. And
the policy framework isn't set up at all to
handle these longer-term issues."
With many of the world's poorer countries still
seeing strong growth, the global fertility rate
-- the number of children born per couple --
remains around 2.5, more than enough to replace
every person currently alive.
But in richer countries, the rate has already
nosedived. Russia, Singapore and several other
developed countries have introduced policies to
boost fertility but with mixed success.
Exact predictions vary, but most projections
suggest the global population will peak at
around 9 billion around 2070 and then start to
fall, perhaps very fast.
