Week in Review

ALL Team Working on a First-of-Its-Kind Report

The ALL team is working hard on a new report to be distributed this summer. The report will be the first of its kind and promises to bring some much-needed clarity to the fight against the abortion pill regimen. 

The abortion pill regimen now accounts for more than 70% of all abortions and deserves to be the focus of our fight to save the babies. 

More details are to come, but be sure to be on the lookout for this new report that promises to shed a bright light on the evil going on to promote abortion pills to vulnerable young moms. 

Planned Parenthood and ‘Rolling Stone’ Endorse ‘Trans Abortion Doulas’

In case you missed it, Rolling Stone magazine recently published an article covering the story of a woman who identifies as a transgender man and works as an abortion doula. In another attempt to normalize both abortion and transgenderism, Planned Parenthood was quick to repost this story on its X account last week. However, this story has received an ample amount of backlash due to both the article and Planned Parenthood’s statement referencing the article, which says: “Meet Ash Williams, a trans abortion doula redefining reproductive support. After experiencing a lack of care during his own abortion, Ash now provides holistic, compassionate care to those choosing not to remain pregnant.” 

The first oxymoronic notion in this story is that an “abortion doula” has anything to do with offering “compassionate care.” As opposed to doulas who provide support to mothers before, during, and after giving birth to their babies, abortion doulas “assist” in the murder of a preborn child. Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest lists the definition for the “profession” on its website

An abortion doula provides physical and emotional support to a patient during their abortion process. It’s an added level of care outside of the actual medical care where providers are attuning to whatever the patients’ needs are, to make them as comfortable as possible during the process. . . . And then there’s also the trauma-informed care piece and emotional support that comes along with abortion doula work.

Planned Parenthood’s attempt to downplay the reality of abortion by endorsing abortion doulas is further perpetuated in this unbelievable story. The woman named Ash Williams is described in the article as “support[ing] patients who choose to not remain pregnant.” Using deceptive language tactics like Planned Parenthood does, the author of the article fails to call abortion what it is: the intentional murder of a preborn baby. The author even admitted in the article to sharing her recent abortion story with Williams, who makes a disturbing statement about abortion and birth: “Abortion and birth often get siloed, and we’ve been made to think that these things are a binary, but they’re really not. For me, abortion is a type of birth.” After experiencing an abortion herself before becoming an “abortion doula,” Williams says that she wants to encourage and “help” others get abortions.

However, Williams does not believe that women are the only ones to get abortions. Since Williams identifies as a “trans man,” both Williams and the author of the article try to normalize that men “can have abortions” too. This crazy notion that men can become pregnant and therefore get abortions is both mindboggling and diabolical. Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, was quick to bring attention to the irony of this notion coming from abortion supporters and abortionists themselves: “We went so quickly from ‘no uterus, no opinion’ to ‘men need abortions, too.’” 

The article and Planned Parenthood’s post appear to have inspired numerous reactions of shock and justified anger all over the Internet for its ridiculous claims. But if a society continues to normalize the destruction of innocent life, created by God, within the womb, it is not surprising that it will also seek to deny and destroy God’s intentional design of both men and women.

Short Video Reminds Us of the Children We Will Never Know

It’s impossible to fathom how much the course of history has changed because the people who ought to have been here were taken away from us. Siblings are missing. Best friendships will never happen. Generations of children and grandchildren have been wiped out.

Disease and catastrophe did not take them away. Their mothers did, before they could take their first breath. A short submitted to Oregon Right to Life’s video competition for 10- to 13-year-olds explores these forgotten children and how their loss impacts us.
