#480 Quick New Abortion Clinics, Child Abuse, M*A*S*H

What’s the Quickest Way to Get a New Abortion Facility? The number of abortion facilities has dramatically dropped, from over 2,000 in the early 1990s to only around 700 now. Establishing a new clinic normally involves not only buying or renting a building space and getting permits, but local pro-lifers throwing up as many legal obstacles as possible. Ah, but there’s a new technique now: take an already-established clinic that offers sex-related health services – especially Planned Parenthood centers – and simply start doing abortions there.

While we already offer much material to explain to them what’s wrong with abortion and euthanasia, this site explains the damage Roe v. Wade has also done to other causes. Hopefully, they’d react less negatively if Roe is ever overturned or seriously curtailed. We now have 4” by 6” cards, front and back pictured below, for putting on lit tables, doing mass leafleting, etc. These are available free to

#477 Referendums, Ireland, Life Matters

Peace & Life Referendums Those of us who listen to U.S. news media have likely heard over the last week that after Labor Day is the unofficial start of election campaign season – and since that season is so long in the U.S., they mean right now, over a year in advance of the large nation-wide election (November 3, 2020). But activists who want to get state-wide referendums on the ballot need to already be hard at work getting the thousands of petition signatures needed. So for this week’s blog post, we’ve got a list of some worthy referendums that our supporters might like to chip in on, or at least be aware of, along with objectionable ones we need to prepare to defeat: Peace and
