America is rejecting abortion because pro-lifers are having more children: study
2014.08.22 - 12:00am - LifeSiteNews
According to a new Northwestern University study, American attitudes about abortion are trending more conservatively than other contentious social issues, a phenomenon the authors credit to the simple fact that pro-lifers have more kids.

“We find evidence that the abortion attitudes have lagged behind a liberalizing trend of other correlated attitudes,” the authors wrote. Using GSS data collected between 1977 and 2010, “We test[ed] the hypothesis that the comparatively high fertility of pro-life individuals has led to a more pro-life population.” read more...

Huntsville waives zoning rules, allows abortion facility to open next to middle school
2014.08.21 - 12:00am - LifeSiteNews
The city of Huntsville has ruled that an abortion facility will remain open and be able to relocate next door to a middle school, although the waiver it is using to get around city ordinances was granted to another owner for another kind of business 16 years ago.

In a controversial 3-2 decision, the Huntsville Board of Zoning Adjustment on Tuesday night voted to uphold a city manager’s previous decision to issue a building permit to a local abortion clinic that wants to relocate to a larger facility across the street from a middle school. In response, local pro-life activists have threatened to sue, arguing that a conditional zoning waiver granted to the building’s original owners in 1998 should not apply to the abortionists, who plan to use it for a totally different purpose. read more...
