Oklahoma abortion law gets struck down
The 2009 law was intended to prevent a mother from picking the gender of her child through abortions.

It made it illegal for a doctor to do the procedure if the doctor knew a woman's sole reason was she wanted a baby of a different sex. Attorneys said worldwide most abortions done for gender reasons involve female fetuses.

Oklahoma County District Judge Dan Owens ruled Friday that legislators put into the law multiple subjects unrelated to its underlying purpose. He ruled the law violated a requirement in the state constitution that legislation cover a single subject.

"It's pretty disturbing we have to pass a statute to prevent people from doing that," the judge said of gender-selection abortions. "It's uncivilized."

Controversial California abortionist Andrew Rutland will keep his medical license in spite of pleas from the California Medical Board
Andrew Rutland was previously permitted to continue a limited practice, but had been barred from performing surgeries and delivering babies (related story). In an undercover phone call about receiving an abortion, the receptionist was willing to make an appointment for an afternoon surgical abortion with Rutland.

Undercover female: "My friend, I guess she had...the procedure done there. She told me to specifically try to get an appointment with Dr. Rutland. Is that possible?"

Receptionist: "Yes, absolutely."

An appointment was then made for a surgical abortion that afternoon.

The Medical Board conducted its own sting in which a woman was offered a medical abortion (RU-486). Rutland was taken before a judge who refused to suspend his license, but amended the court order to permit him to do abortions with pills.

Baby born healthy after hospital advised abortion
Fiona Vanderhook came close to never knowing her 14-month-old son Diesel.

When she was five weeks pregnant, a trainee doctor told Ms Vanderhook she had lost the baby.

The doctor recommended termination using the drug misoprostol, but the drug did not work and a follow-up scan showed the foetus was still alive.

Later scans revealed the baby had fluid on the brain - a condition likely caused by the abortion drug Ms Vanderhook had been given.

Despite six other specialist opinions that the baby would be born normal, Ms Vanderhook says a senior obstetrician at Canberra Hospital continued to press her to terminate the baby, even at 31 weeks, when termination would have involved inducing labour.

"To have a baby induced and to watch him just die and not do anything about it? I was disgusted," Ms Vanderhook told the ABC.

Alabama puts Planned Parenthood clinic on probation after undercover sting
State health officials said the Birmingham, Ala., abortion clinic has until next week to present its plan to correct violations involving minors receiving abortions.

Investigators with the health department said records at the clinic showed several minors aged 13-15 had received abortions without proper verification of parental consent since November 2008.

An activist with "Live Action," a California-based anti-abortion group, posed as a pregnant 14-year-old girl who needed a secret abortion. In an audio tape from the visit, an employee allegedly suggests that someone other than a parent or legal guardian could give consent.

The group's claim last year led Alabama health officials to investigate.

From Students for Life of America:

Student Organizations File a Friend-of-the Court Brief in U.S. Spreme Court Addressing Student Speech

Arlington, VA - On Thursday, February 4th, attorney James Bopp Jr, filed a friend-of-the court brief in a U.S. Supreme Court case involving the rights of student groups on university campuses to determine the ideological requirements for membership in the group. The case, Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, involves a challenge to the University of California Hastings' derecognition of a Christian student group because it requires its members and leaders to be Christians. Should the lower court's ruling be upheld, no political, ideological, or religious student group would be safe.

Mr. Bopp represents Students for Life America, the College Republican National Committee, and the Republican National Lawyers Association. Each organization has student chapters that advance ideological or political ideals. Hastings' "all comers" policy requires student groups to permit all students to join as members and leaders, regardless of the effect on the groups' message. Thus, a Republican student group cannot require that a student be a Republican to join it or be its President. Pro-life student groups must allow a pro-abortion student to be its President.

James Bopp, Jr. explained: "this type of policy threatens the existence of any student organization that organizes to promote an ideology-conservative, liberal, and everything in-between." He continued, "the First Amendment protects student organizations' ability to define themselves along political, ideological, or religious grounds."

Students for Life of America Executive Director remarked: "The UC-Hasting's decision to de-recognize a Christian student group because it requires members to be Christian is absurb and alarming to my organization. Students for Life of America works with over 523 active pro-life student organizations throughout the United States, and this decision could have a devasting impact on those organizations."

James Bopp, Jr. has a national federal and state election law practice. He is with the law firm of Bopp, Coleson & Bostrom in Terre Haute, IN and is General Counsel for the James Madison Center for Free Speech.
Students for Life of America is a non-profit, secular organization dedicated to equipping the pro-life generation with the resources they need to end abortion in America. For more information on SFLA, please visit

Pro-life group slams Spanish president for hiding behind 'democratic mask'
The spokesperson for the Spanish organization Right to Life, Gador Joya, slammed President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero this week for trying to hide behind a "democratic mask" and claim that he defends the dignity of human life, when his abortion bill seeks to violently take the lives of innocent human beings.

Joya criticized President Zapatero for his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. this week, in which he said that Spain "does not exploit workers nor discriminate against homosexuals or immigrants."

These laws, Goya said, "have been around much longer than Mr. Zapatero," who has instead brought "division and anxiety to Spain because of his obstinacy in turning abortion into a right."

"Zapatero put on a democratic mask before a religious group in a friendly country, but the reality is very different. The reality is that we are facing a government that is harmful to freedom and personal dignity," she said.
