At Catholic Vote, Michael New examines reduced teen pregnancy rates, partly credited to a drop in sexual activity among teens. He also notes that since the early 1990s, the teen abortion rate has fallen faster than the teen pregnancy rate.

Clinic Quotes shows the extent to which abortion advocates will go to downplay and dehumanize the images of preborn children: 
Moving ultrasound images showing 12-week-old foetuses sucking their thumbs and appearing to “walk” do not prove they have feelings and provide no scientific evidence for lowering the age limit for abortion, experts said yesterday.

Down on the Pharm discusses how Notre Dame – which famously hosted President Obama to speak at a commencement four years ago – is not receiving any relief on the HHS contraceptive mandate and appears to be choosing to bow to the administration’s coercion.

Bound4Life has a motivating post about the successes of the pro-life movement in 2013:
An article by Breitbart reports that a survey conducted by Operation Rescue found… that the total number of surgical abortion clinics which remain in the United States is now 582, which is a twelve percent decrease in 2013 alone, and a 73 percent decrease from the high of 2,176 in 1991….

When I start thinking about there being 582 surgical abortion clinics and 176 pharmaceutical abortion centers, the fight to end abortion in America becomes more realistic. It is an attainable goal. It makes me think that we can actually do this.

I’m not in shape, but I could climb 582 stairs.

At my best typing speed I could write around 582 words in under 8 minutes….

Can you see the finish line? It’s only about 582 steps away.

The Leading Edge recalls the anniversary of the Massacre of the Holy Innocents, in which King Herod the Great ordered the slaughter of all little boys under age two. Looks like there really is nothing new under the sun:
Only weeks ago a cross-party select committee in [New Zealand] issued a report which called the act of aborting an unborn human being an “important human right”, and which suggested that NZ abortion laws should be further liberalized.
Just like the unplanned Messiah, NZ’s own unplanned children are considered, by many, to be a threat to some perceived future happiness.

Kansans for Life reports that “[t]his past month, the [Kansas Board of Healing Arts] closed complaints from Kansans For Life about two state-licensed abortionists – Herb Hodes and LeRoy Carhart. In neither case did the abortionist receive disciplinary action or loss of license. All we were told is that unspecified “information” was placed in their personnel files.

Live Action shares the story of an expectant couple whose doctor called them “lucky” when prenatal testing showed that they might be having a child with Down syndrome. In a companion post, LA features video of Tim Harris, a restaurant owner and operator who has Ds:

A 75% decrease in the number of clinics, but not a 75% decrease in the number of abortions... there's a disconnect somewhere.
