Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

You've got to be kidding me.

I read about the Canadian planned parenthood website for teens at Dawn Patrol
I highly recommend reading her article, especially if you are a parent to teenagers. I further investigated the site Dawn links in her blog, and found this appalling, but predictable table involving teen pregnancy.


* Babies are
o completely dependent on you for their health and survival
o a big responsibility

* Parenting is
o a 24 hour job
o completely different to babysitting or looking after a younger sibling

Wow, that seems very optimistic. Apparently caring for a child is such utter drudgery and horror, that it warrants a mere four line mention and a disapproving glare.

The options for adoption and fostering are equally negative. But wow, take a look at abortion!

It is the female's right to ask for a procedure that terminates her pregnancy in its early stages.

Abortion is

* a legal medical procedure in Canada
* causes the fetus to separate from the side of the uterus and to leave the female's body through her vagina
* is usually done in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy

There are three common types of abortions:

* Medical:
A medical (non-surgical) abortion is
o performed up to 7 weeks from your last menstrual period.
o an injection stops the growth of the pregnancy, while several tablets inserted into the vagina cause the uterus to contract and expel its contents.

* Surgical – up to 8 weeks:
o performed up to 8 weeks from you last menstrual period.
o a flexible tube attached to a plastic syringe is inserted into the uterus.
o the syringe creates a suction and removes the contents of the uterus.
o you are awake for the procedure, which takes less than 10 minutes.

* Surgical – 8 to 20 weeks:
o performed up to 14 weeks in hospital (while you are asleep)
o performed up to 20 weeks in a free-standing clinic (while you are awake).
o the cervix is dilated and a gentle suction is used to remove the contents of the uterus.
o the procedure takes 10 to 15 minutes.

* If you are trying to have an abortion in secret, be sure to still use a legal abortion clinic.
* Concerned about keeping things confidential?
o tell you doctor
o ask what they do with your medical information
o if you don't trust the doctor, leave
* Doctors usually have to keep patient information confidential.
Doctors can usually tell others if:
o they have your permission
o are making a referral
o suspect abuse
o OR feel you're incapable of understanding medical advice or the consequences of your decisions

I shouldn't be surpriseded. It'appalling that not a single negative is mentioned with abortion. No mention that "Abortion is a medical procedure, and thus carries risks" no mention that "some women feel emotionally distraught after abortion"(However, emotional distress is mentioned in the context of adoption). No mention of the fetus, no mention of killing the fetus, no mention of what the procedure actually entails for the fetus. I know the object is to dehumanize the child as much as possible, but this is truly ridiculous. Can planned parenthood honestly claim they offer options? Can they honestly claim they are not "pro-abortion"? I'll let you be the judge
