Angelina Jolie s Dad Backs Brad Pitt s Mom After Abortion-Death Threats
In the latest development in the saga surrounding the letter to the editor Brad Pitt s mother wrote blasting President Barack Obama on abortion, Jane Pitt has a new defender in Jon Voight, Brad Pitt s father-in-law-to-be.

That Voight would have to come to Jane Pitt s defense, rather than her son looking out for her, has cause many movie-watchers to see Brad Pitt in a negative light.

Jane Pitt faced death threats from liberal activists following her letter to the editor to a newspaper in which she blasts President Barack Obama for his lengthy pro-abortion record. In the letter published by the Springfield News-Leader, Pitt calls President Obama, a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies. She adds, Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/12/angelina-jolies-dad-backs-brad-pitts-mom-after-abortion-death-threats/

Mother Dies After Postponing Cancer Treatments to Save Baby
A mother in Spain has died who postponed her cancer treatments in order to save the life of her unborn baby. As EWTN reports, Barbara Castro Garcia, a journalist who worked for the Diocese of Cordoba in Spain, died on July 4.

Barbara s husband, Ignacio Cabezas, talked with the Spanish daily La Gaceta and said Garcia gave her life for her baby girl out of love for her daughter, for me and for God, and he hopes people now will honor her as she deserves.

I remember the day we found out Barbara was pregnant. We were having breakfast at a restaurant and silly with an inextinguishable joy, he said, adding that he believes the sacrifice his wife made by giving up her life for her child wasn t in their plans when they were married. We very much wanted to be parents. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/12/mother-dies-after-postponing-cancer-treatments-to-save-baby/

Planned Parenthood s Manipulative Language Strategy Leaked
The power of words and formulating arguments is an extremely powerful and precise science. While pro-life advocates are careful to use words that accurately represent terms that surround abortion, Planned Parenthood is careful to craft their language and arguments in a way that will subtly manipulate the issue and cause confusion.

In addition to manipulating confusion, documents that SFLA has recently obtained from Planned Parenthood of NYC also proves that the abortion Goliath knows its losing in the court of public opinion. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/12/planned-parenthoods-manipulative-language-strategy-leaked/

Planned Parenthood Ad: No Stress, No Worries, No More Pregnancies
As I was checking my Facebook timeline the other day, I noticed one of several advertisements on the right sidebar on my screen. It was an ad for Planned Parenthood, and it read, No stress, no worries, and no more pregnancies.

How s that for a marketing slogan, brought to you by the number one abortion provider in America!

The message here is clear: Children are a burden, not a blessing. You, the consumer, deserve to be carefree in this world. Babies are a nuisance. And Planned Parenthood offers a variety of services that will make sure no more children enter into the picture which (hush, hush) includes its flagship product, the dismemberment of infants in the womb. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/12/planned-parenthood-ad-no-stress-no-worries-no-more-pregnancies/

Melinda Gates Population Control Solution to Poverty
Empowering women, reducing poverty and improving the overall health and well-being of women and children are noble goals. As with all great visions, however, the devil is in the details. Melinda Gates claims that the key to reducing poverty is to flood the developing world with contraceptives and abortifacients.

A cornerstone of this effort is the development of a new injectable contraceptive that would be analogous to the currently available medroxyprogesterone acetate also known as DMPA, or by its brand name Depo-Provera. Unlike Depo Provera, which requires an intramuscular injection and must be administered by a medical professional, this new form is a self-administered subcutaneous injection. Ms. Gates hopes that her efforts will bring contraception to at least an additional 120 million women worldwide, with the primary focus being in sub-Saharan African and South Asia. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/12/melinda-gates-population-control-solution-to-poverty/
