MORE UNDERCOVER VIDEO: Ky abortion counselor’s medical misinformation, disregard of child sex abuse law part of long-term abortion industry deception
Here’s another Live Action video of the same Louisville, Kentucky facility and employee giving wrong information to the 14-year-old girl (undercover student Lila Rose) in her office about when formation of her child begins.

Before working for the CPLC, I didn’t know anything about when a baby is scientifically forming. And that was fine because nothing in my previous job would have been affected by me knowing or not knowing when a baby is formed in the womb.

But this woman is supposedly a trained professional in her field. She’s giving information that people are going to use to make life and death decisions with, literally. What kind of training are these people getting? This is something she should have known or researched.

I want to give this woman the benefit of the doubt. Let’s say she’s a caring compassionate individual who really thinks she’s doing the right thing by helping these ladies kill their unborn babies, hide it from their parents and give them lots of birth control pills so that they will be physically liberated to have a happy life of premarital sex and future abortions.

That might sound good in la-la bizarro land, and that female employee might feel good at the end of her day that she helped a poor little girl out of a "terrible" situation, but that woman doesn’t have to live the consequences of that day’s decisions. That employee doesn’t have to carry the burden of loss, regret, depression, guilt and shame that the adult woman that was that vulnerable 14-year-old child will someday have to come to terms with.

Lila might not have been really pregnant, but those possibly hundreds of young girls the employee admitted to seeing in her office every day really do have a life growing inside of them.

It’s not just this one isolated female employee in Kentucky. This is what happens when an industry (yes, it is an industry) is not regulated like other sensitive industries are run. They can break pesky state laws because they have friends in high places with deep wallets that will come to their legal defense. This is a business to them, a very profitable business with political agendas and a long, dark history.

Thank you Lila and her crew for doing what they do! You can help show people what’s really going on by spreading this video everywhere you are, Facebook, twitter, YouTube, MySpace and your e-mail!
EXPOSED: Undercover Video Shows Kentucky Abortion Center Failing to Report Child Sex Abuse
Lila Rose and her peeps over at Live Action just keep the film coming. This time they expose an abortion center in Louisville, Kentucky failing to report child sex abuse between a pregnant 14-year-old girl (undercover student Lila Rose) and a 31-year-old man.

Live Action has previously released videos of statutory rape cover-up at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Bloomington, IN, Indianapolis, IN, Memphis, TN, Birmingham, AL, Los Angeles, CA, Tucson, AZ, Phoenix, AZ, and Milwaukee, WI.

Prompted by a Live Action video, the Alabama Health Department placed the Birmingham clinic on probation after conducting its own investigation which found 9 legal violations.

Rose urges officials in Kentucky to follow suit: “State authorities need to investigate this Louisville abortion clinic and hold them accountable to the law,” Rose insists. “Until they do, young girls will be put at risk of continued sexual abuse.”

Jill Stanek has some good background info on this facility on her pro-life blog http://www.jillstanek.com/new-revelations-in-latest-live.html.
EXPOSED: American Idol 'Gives Back' - to groups that support abortion
Hold those dialing fingers, America! This morning from Examiner.com:

Life Decisions International has taken the lead in making everyone aware that the TV Program called "American Idol" is (and apparently has in the past) aligning itself with pro-abortion groups. They have reported a little know fact that among the groups benefiting this year's "Idol Gives Back" fund-raising campaign are Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation. "Idol Gives Back," which airs tonight, will feature several celebrities who will urge Americans to make a donation.

Save the Children has a working relationship with what it calls "prominent international organizations." Several of these groups are actively pro-abortion, including Better World Fund, Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Population Action International, and the U.S. Committee for UNICEF.

Several divisions of the United Nations have donated funds to Planned Parenthood and the body has wholeheartedly embraced its abortion and population control agenda.

"It is laudable that the people involved with 'American Idol' want to help the poor," said LDI President Douglas R. Scott, Jr. "But it is tragic that they would choose to do so through groups like the Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation. These groups have far too much deadly baggage."

Of course, what many people do not know, because "American Idol" has not chosen to mention it, is that Simon Cowell is the chief executive officer of International Save the Children. This is surely why Save the Children was selected as a recipient charity.

Scott urges that "If you believe the plight of preborn children is as important as the plight of the poor, do not participate in 'Idol Gives Back,'" Scott urged. "We are caring people who want to do our part to help those less fortunate, but we will do so through organizations that do not view the killing of human beings as a 'solution' to poverty and other adult-created problems."

It is worth noting that "American Idol" recently supported a fund-raising campaign by Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles.

Contraceptives: A one-sided issue on Wikipedia (and not the side that’s showing the truth)
I was doing contraceptive research yesterday for our updated education page on the CPLC website, and being a product of my generation, I found myself on Wikipedia “the free encyclopedia.” I was really only on there for kicks. I didn’t think I’d find anything of real use, until I saw this (emphasis mine):

Abstinence as a long term method is not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy: not everyone who intends to be abstinent refrains from all sexual activity,[29] and in many populations there is a significant risk of pregnancy from nonconsensual sex.[30] As a public health measure, it is estimated that the protection provided by abstinence may be similar to that of condoms.[31] Some authorities recommend that those using abstinence as a primary method have backup method(s) available (such as condoms or emergency contraceptive pills).[32]"

Let’s review. Assume “nonconsensual sex” = rape or incest. Are we to believe that according to this entry, abstinence is not 100 percent effective to prevent pregnancy because of the .005 percent chance that you’ll get raped or be a victim of incest?

Are we also to believe that “as a public health measure” you run just as much chance getting pregnant as an abstinent person by rape or incest than as a sexually active person using a condom?

And that “some authorities” suggest that abstinent people stock up on condoms and emergency birth control pills just in case?

This entry should have been filed under “Are you kidding me?”

It’s clear from this analysis of the practice of abstinence and the first two paragraphs of history of birth control that sing high praises of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger that the person who wrote and cited in this entry is pro-contraceptive.

What they’re not telling you
It’s what I didn’t find that agonized me. There are ZERO mentions of the documented harmful side effects and deaths caused by contraceptive use.

Regardless of the source, it’s irresponsible of Wikipedia to allow the entry creator to promote so many forms of “birth control” without promoting the statistics of how many condoms fail to prevent the spread of HIV in the US and all over the world, the harmful side effects, and even deaths as a result of using these methods.

Contraceptive truth
“Contraceptives” is the general term used since 1891 to describe “the deliberate prevention of conception or impregnation by any of various drugs, techniques, or devices.” “Birth control” is a term used in today’s society. The problem is that these methods don’t “control” birth. They exist to potentially facilitate the death of an unborn child.

But that doesn’t sell as well in a glossy magazine ad.

It was the third entry that came up after I typed in Birth control in the Google search engine. Planned Parenthood was the first entry. Not much of a diverse amount of information there. Just a warning. Be weary of information when you read things like “reproductive rights,” “family planning,” or “equal preventive access.”

We’re in the process of updating our Contraceptives page to look a bit more like our new Abortion page, but until then, here are some good sources for real information about contraceptives.


I’m also working on trying to edit the actual Birth Control Wikipedia page, but I’m having trouble with the program. For those of you who are more technically inclined than me, please feel free to give the editing button on Wikipedia at try. Let me know how it goes.

Feel free to share your own funny comment.
An epidemic: Misplaced trashcan concern from the media
One of today’s major headlines read: “Discarded Palin contract sparks investigation.”

Some California college students found Sarah Palin’s supposed speaking contract in a trash bin after “getting a tip” that people would be shredding documents on that day. They found “Watergate”-like information about her flight preferences from Alaska, which surprise, surprise, doesn’t actually tell the whole story.

Forget how you feel about the former Vice Presidential nominee. It pains me to think that this “breaking news” about what some celebrity/political figure’s secret trashcan finding was the scandal mainstream media was working on into the wee hours of the morning.

If they are truly concerned about what kind of secret scandalous things lie beneath dumpster lids, why doesn’t today’s headline read “Discarded baby arms, legs and heads spark investigation?”

Shame on the major media outlets for their blatant lack of perspective on what constitutes trashcan outrage.

Abortion as a visual debate?

Even this rare October 2009 article from The New York Times about the use of graphic images of babies found in dumpsters to show the reality of abortion is written for the “Photography, Video and Visual Journalism” section not for hard news. The Times should be applauded for showing the images, but this article falls short by not following through to the bigger picture.

In “Behind the Scenes: Picturing Fetal Remains” by Damien Cave, there is no call to arms, no clamoring for more investigations in other cities in other trash bins in parts of the county. There is no interview with a medical board or country health authority for acknowledgement of violations.

The author isn’t even questioning the fact that bloody baby arms and legs are being unceremoniously thrown into back alley dumpsters like fast food wrappers from someone’s lunch. The author is looking at the visual appeal or lack thereof of the use of these images. There are no follow up articles, no pick ups in other media outlets.

Just skimming through the 304 comments associated with the article, shows how hostile the audience is to the idea of using the images of the aborted torn apart babies. This is the environment we find ourselves in, and it is left to ordinary citizens—you and me—to take to the blogosphere and Youtube (warning: graphic images) to expose these harsh realities. We can’t help that the media is buying their own manure about what deems investigation, but we can make our voices heard by sending emails, making phone calls and talking face to face to the stations and newsrooms telling them about the “breaking news” that is allowed to continue every day all over our country.

Thank you to those out there who do continue these conversations online, in your homes and, most importantly, in your prayers.
We’re back!
Thanks to everyone who made the 17th Annual Bishop’s Dinner a success! It was a great night of fellowship and inspiration from Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and Chair of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson.

We’ll be adding photos and more about the event later. For now, here’s a CPLC video that was shown to the more than 2,300 attendees Saturday night during the dinner at the Hilton Anatole Dallas.

Abortion and Healthcare: What’s the real issue?
WASHINGTON, DC, March 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Democrats explaining their stubbornness to maintain the abortion funding in the Senate health care bill have admitted that a primary motivation for doing so lies in encouraging more abortions, lest more children born put a strain on government funds, said Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) as reported by National Review Online.

"If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That’s one of the arguments I’ve been hearing [from Democrat leaders],” Stupak said in a phone interview published Friday. “Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America? If money is the issue — come on, we can find room in the budget. This is life we’re talking about.”

Breaking: Man who shot pro-life activist sentenced to life in prison
Harlan Drake, the 33-year-old Michigan man who shot and killed pro-life activist James Pouillon and businessman Mike Fuoss, was sentenced to life in prison without parole yesterday.

Drake’s defense team pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity for the double murders committed Sept. 11, 2009 in the small Michigan town of Owosso, but that defense was thrown out. Drake testified that he didn’t like Pouillon’s graphic aborted babies signs displayed in front of his nieces’ school, and he didn’t want them to have to look at the signs anymore.

Let’s continue to pray for Drake, his conversion and healing for all those involved in this sad case.
Horror: Six aborted babies found by river in Napal
At least six human fetuses were found near the banks of Bishumati River in Kuleshwor, Kathmandu, in January, leading authorities to suspect of foul play by private hospitals involved in illegal abortion. Kathmandu is the nation's capital and the country's largest metropolitan city.

The fetuses were found wrapped in a polythene bag near the banks of the river. Eyewitnesses said that the fetuses could be anywhere from four to five months.

Police suspect private hospitals and clinics involved in illegal abortion to have disposed off the fetuses and said that they have started an investigation into the case.

Abortion has been legalized in Nepal, which is located in south Asia and borders China and India, a few years ago. But some private clinics in the country have been found to offer cheap abortion related services without following proper guidelines, putting at risk the life of the patients.

Hope in the darkness: 151 babies saved in 15 days
In 15 days, 151 lives have already been sparred from the death of abortion! God works in so many amazing ways. If you don’t already get the updates from David Bereit, I recommend you sign up for the latest life-saving stories from across America on the 40 Days for Life national blog.

Here are some of the holy spirit-inspired highlights.

“A young woman walked up to the 40 Days for Life vigil outside an abortion center in Austin, Texas recently. She signed up to join the others in prayer ... and then immediately sat down on the sidewalk and started to cry.

One of the volunteers stopped praying for a moment to approach the young woman, whom she had never met before, and asked her if she needed a hug. This volunteer assumed that the thought of what was going on inside the abortion facility had simply overcome this woman and brought her to tears.

But that wasn't the case. To her surprise, she found out this young woman was crying for another reason.

‘I'm pregnant right now and don't want to be,’ she said. ‘I've already had four abortions.’”

“Two volunteers stood in the rain and prayed at a 40 Days for Life vigil last week as a young man drove up, got out of his car with the engine still running, and walked over to talk to them

‘I just wanted to thank you for being here,’ he said.
‘I know you know what kind of a place this is,’ he said, pointing towards the abortion facility. ‘Can I tell you a story about it?’

The prayer volunteers nodded yes, and the young man began to pour out his heart.

He said a couple of weeks ago, his wife was not at home and he had no idea where she was -- until he got a phone call from the hospital. ‘My wife had been admitted because she was having seizures,’ he said.

At the hospital, he found out his wife was pregnant. It would be a struggle with two young children already, he said, but they'd work it out.

As he spent more time at the hospital, it began to dawn on this young man that no one was telling him the whole truth. He realized something was seriously amiss when his wife told him she'd left her car at an abortion facility. He thinks she went there for a chemical abortion -- the abortion pill. She began to have seizures and was taken to the hospital.

His wife insisted she was still pregnant, but he simply didn't know for sure.

‘I haven't stopped crying in over two weeks,’ he said. ‘What kind of place is this that would do this to a married woman without telling her husband, the father of the baby?’"

Prayer and perseverance work. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

The volume is really low on this, so you’ll need to turn your speakers up all the way. It’s worth the effort to hear Abby’s testimony.

This is what Abby Johnson saw in the sonogram when she realized the “tissue” inside the mother’s belly was really a small living human. The background music is unfortunate or fortunate, depending on how you feel about 80’s pop phenomenon Boy George, but the images themselves really got to me.

CPLC sidewalk counselor story: A day at Routh street abortion center
From the front lines of Dallas’ Routh street abortion center, brought to you by one of our faithful sidewalk counselors, Rebecca Thompson.

"Routh Street.
It looked as if the abortion clinic was not going to be open today, like last week. The puddles in the alley were left frozen from yesterday's rain. There were so few cars (a handful of staff) in the parking lot and one client, who left. Kenneth (found out later) was stuck in traffic on I-35 (4 down to 1 lane). I guess the ice. Joanne's telephone was out. So, I waited in the White Rose office for phone calls, prayed the rosary and listened while Debbi counseled encouraged an abortion minded woman who called. (She thought she was calling an abortion center.) White Rose helped 3,000 women last year. Three thousand. Debbi said much of their work is on the phone. So she must say what she says, and ask what she asks... a lot.

The center smelled mmm spicy... clean. The mom on the phone would have to drive from Tyler (about 2 or 2 1/2 hours away). Debbi offered bribery: gas reimbursement. (That's service!) Seems like the woman agreed to make the appointment. Before the day got really started, Debbi took Holy Water and dabbed all the door knobs with it, making the sign of the cross. The water was from Lourdes. It felt oily to me. That was the scent I had smelled earlier. Well, maybe Our Lady of Lourdes was hanging out at White Rose today. I think she was.

Outside again, Kenneth had arrived. Routh Street was up and operating at full force. ugh. A woman stopped her car outside the entrance. She was alone and had an appointment. Free sonogram pregnancy test services other options were offered (I didn't mention the possibility of gas money), and couldn't understand why she was determined to keep her Routh appointment. She promised she would come to White Rose when finished with the appointment. I believed she would; but she was warned that fear buttons would be pushed. They were. She emerged some hours later looking slightly despondent. Worried. Quiet. I walked with her up the stairs to the White Rose waiting room trying to engage her in conversation. Not so successful. She wasn't sure from the Routh pregnancy test if she was having a girl or a boy.

Debbi was soon to be available. So we sat there in the waiting room... waiting. She was fighting back tears. A box of tissues in hand, she went with Debbi.

Back on the street, lots of cars... in and out. The alley still had frozen spots. Seems like everyone shows up all at one time at this abortion clinic. It's hard to keep track of everyone. Prayer support arrived. Two women regularly drive from Waxahachie once a month (Thank you Holy Almighty God for these two women) to pray for a few hours. That pilgrimage (from the South) is the same interstate that Kenneth drives (from the North), each about a 40-50 minute drive. (They all pay their own gas.) And there were a couple of other turn-aways... couples leaving smiling... not aborting.

Kenneth and I stuck around about an hour or so longer than usual. We were about to call it a day... out of White Rose Clinic came the beautiful (now smiling) mother. No tears. No despondency. Glowing. She is 20 1/2 weeks pregnant... a baby girl!! She has another child too, a man who wants to marry her and be the father for both children. (Thank you Holy Almighty God!) She is happy hopeful... expectant and looking forward to all the graces God is bringing into her life. We were giving receiving hugs, congratulations, thanks and laughter. And I sort of think (for just a split second as typing this) that I could smell very so lightly that spicy clean scent. Thank you Our Lady of Lourdes for your intercessions and for your Motherly Love for all of God's children."
In his own words: Tim Tebow on ‘Celebrating Family, Celebrating Life’
Via LifeNews.com
Mobile, AL (LifeNews.com) -- College football superstar Tim Tebow defended a Super Bowl commercial Focus on the Family has filmed that is generating national attention. Tebow confirmed the commercial will focus on pro-life values and tell the story of how his mother decided against an abortion.

After the Senior Bowl practice on Wednesday, Tebow admitted he was surprised at the growing attention the Super Bowl commercial is receiving.

“I definitely didn't think it would have this much hype,” Tebow said, according to an Orlando Sentinel report. “It’s something I believe in and I'll stand up for.”

Tebow would not give any spoilers about the content of the ad -- which Focus on the Family has confirmed will run with the message "Celebrating Family, Celebrating Life" -- but confirmed it would share his mother's story.

“I don't think it’s anything that’s negative or anything like that,” Tebow said, according to the newspaper. “It’s a good time and place. There are a lot of people watching. It’s a great opportunity to show something very happy and a special story and my mom fighting for me. There are a lot of great things in that.”
Heartache: Focus on the Family finds unexpected defenders as ‘pro-choice’ advocates turn on their own
Focus on the Family is finding unexpected defenders after getting behind a $2 million pro-life ad featuring college football super star Tim Tebow and his mom, Pam.

NOW (National Organization for Women), NARAL Pro-Choice America and a handful of other supposed “women’s rights” groups have been waging a war against CBS, Focus on the Family and the Tebow family for what they think is an abhorrence on society—a woman talking about how she chose to have a baby when the doctors told her she should get an abortion. That offensive baby was, of course, Heisman winner Tim Tebow.

“Pro-choice” advocates are turning on their own as they disagree with their extreme members who view abortion as the only noble “choice.”

"Tebow's Super Bowl ad isn't intolerant; its critics are"
The Washington Post
By Sally Jenkins

“I'm pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I've heard in the past week, I'll take his side against the group-think, elitism and condescension of the ‘National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time’…

…Pam Tebow and her son feel good enough about that choice to want to tell people about it. Only, NOW says they shouldn't be allowed to. Apparently NOW feels this commercial is an inappropriate message for America to see for 30 seconds, but women in bikinis selling beer is the right one. I would like to meet the genius at NOW who made that decision. On second thought, no, I wouldn't….”

Chuck Plunkett at the Denver Post writes a compelling column about his experience with his own mother making a choice very similar to Pam Tebow.

"Nothing wrong with Tebow TV ad"
The Denver Post
By Chuck Plunkett

“I'm an agnostic who supports a woman's right to choose and not given to feeling protective of Focus on the Family. But in this case, I think the Christian ministry is being bullied…”

Even on Facebook, a fan is questioning PP’s method over on the Planned Parenthood of North Texas Facebook Fan Page.

“I hate 'em all too - Tebow, FotF, CBS, the whole lot of 'em - but I don't think we should advocate that they pull ads just because we don't like them. Yes, I know they're hypocrites for not airing the Disciples of Christ ad, but it's still their choice. All sides trying to bully everyone into showing only what they like or agree with isn't working. It doesn’t accomplish anything but more self-censoring and stupid regulations and rules. It’s their decision. Fine. Air it. I just won’t watch it, or CBS. I’ll try to avoid buying crap from their sponsors, and so on.” . It doesn't accomplish anything but more self-censoring and stupid regulations and rules. It's their decision. Fine. Air it.

All of this conversation before anyone even sees the acutal ad. Wow. Can't wait to see what happens next week. Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday!
Video Highlights: Tim Tebow, Focus on the Family and Super Bowl XLIV
By now, the buzz around the 30-second pro-life Focus on the Family Super Bowl ad featuring Heisman winner Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam, has spread well beyond the pro-life community. New stories and interviews are popping up online every day. Here are some of the video highlights.

The old guard takes offense
Remember: this is an ad that no one, including Gloria Allred has even seen, yet.

There are so many things I could say about this. Pretty much every word that comes out of Gloria Allred’s mouth is a distortion of truth, irrelevant to the conversation or a flat out lie. I’m glad Megyn Kelly calls her out during this interview.

I know that Allred is a high-profile lawyer currently representing one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses, but what gives her the right to tell people in a free market society what they must or must not run in their ad that they bought with their $2 million? It would be different if the content was sexually explicit (inappropriate for children) or vulgar in some obvious demeaning way, but this is Focus on the Family. That’s just not what they do.

This is the United States of America, Gloria baby. Free speech is what we’re all about. You’re allowed to promote your rhetoric without so much as a shred of actual evidence to back any of it up, and nobody has silenced you in 30 years. So, why are you in such a tizzy about one woman telling her story?

The ad is only 30 seconds long. If you don’t want to watch it, take a bathroom break. Go get some nachos. Don’t try to pressure a network station to pull the ad so that everyone else who wants to watch won’t get the opportunity.

Planned Parenthood’s response

Hot Air had some good commentary about a lack of willing high-profile sports figures to take up Planned Parenthood’s cause, so you can read there if you’re interested.

This ad is so vague that if you didn’t know it was from the world’s largest abortion provider, it could pass for a “The More You Know: spend more special time with your daughter” public service announcement.

Since Planned Parenthood is notorious for leaving facts out of their public statements, I’m going to give Sean James and Al Joyner the benefit of the doubt and assume they don’t really know what they’re throwing their weight behind. I would hate to think that these two super star dads would support their daughters killing their potential grandchildren, not to mention increasing their chances at developing aggressive breast cancer, pumping themselves full of harmful contraceptive hormones and potentially dying at the hand of a legal abortionist.

“We celebrate family by supporting our mothers, by supporting our daughters, by trusting women.” By killing their offspring and your future family members? Yeah Joyner, that sounds like a real celebration to me—in crazy logic world.

I thought we celebrate families by protecting the people we love and celebrating life in times of crisis. But hey, that’s just me. Apparently it’s different over at the James and Joyner households.

How it all got started
Focus on the Family lays out the back story on the Tebow ad and talks about the fire storm of reaction as the ad takes on a life of its own. At 15:30 minutes, the video is kind of long, but if you have the time, it shows how God takes control of a situation if you have a little faith in a big vision.

Watch this on a larger screen here.
Video: Houston protest of largest Planned Parenthood on MLK Jr. Day
Here’s some mostly fair coverage from Houston’s local KTRK-TV ABC affiliate. One of the people the reporter interviews is a woman conceived by rape. She says Planned Parenthood is after people like her, and she’s not going to sit on the sidelines.

That’s pretty powerful stuff. It looks like there was a great turn out, too.

If you couldn’t bi-locate to Houston, that’s okay. Pray for the conversion of the workers of this constructions site, the abortionists who do the unfortunate deed and the Planned Parenthood employees, especially the woman interviewed here, Rachelle Tafolla. Hey, it worked for Abby Johnson, right?

San Francisco March for Life activists take courage in liberal district
San Francisco claims some of the most liberal politics and politicians in the country and is the site of some of the most heinous irreverent acts against Christians in general and the Catholic Church, specifically.

Yet on January 23, here were tens of thousands of people marching in the rain, marching through fire, willing to stand up and say “I support life.”

That’s courage.

San Francisco's March for Life coincides with Marches for Life all over the country this month, including Dallas (Jan. 16); Austin (Jan. 23); Hawaii (Jan. 22); Tulsa, Oklahoma (Jan. 22); and Washington, D.C. (Jan. 22).

The organizers did a great job with the San Francisco March for Life website. Their coverage is truly inspiring.

Check out Live Action's flickr photos from the event, too.
