Branch County Right To Life organized a Mother’s Day celebration, handing out carnations at each of the weekend Masses at both Bronson St. Mary’s Assumption Church and Coldwater Saint Charles Church. Board members volunteered and were successful in collecting $910 in donations.

The donations were easy to count, but it was impossible to keep count of all of the happy smiles, resulting from the beautiful flowers!

Botched Abortions Killed Three Women…

Botched Abortions Killed Three Women in Indiana Last Year, Two From “Safe” Abortion Pills

By Micaiah Bilger

Three women died along with their unborn babies in abortions last year in Indiana, including two by the supposedly “safe” abortion pills, according to state records obtained by Voices for Life.

The Indiana pro-life organization said it found records of more than 100 health and safety violations in 2022 by state abortion facilities, including the three women’s deaths and at least four cases where abortion facilities appeared to cover up the sexual abuse of girls as young as 13.

Doctor Confirms Abortion Pills Kill Babies, Put Women’s Lives and Health at Risk

By Mary Margaret Olohan

Pro-life experts warned Republican Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford that the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to allow the distribution of abortion drugs to women and girls by mail is endangering women across the country.

Lankford discussed the ramifications of the move in an episode of his podcast “The Breakdown” with Dr. Donna Harrison, associate scholar with the Charlotte Lozier Institute and Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Erik Baptist.

“It is important that people understand the reality behind this case and not some of the incredibly deceptive spin,” Harrison told Lankford. She explained that drug-induced abortion typically involves mifepristone, which blocks progesterone (which the woman’s body makes to let her body carry and nourish her unborn child).

“When mifepristone is around, the progesterone can’t allow the woman’s body to nourish the baby. This is a problem because then the baby dies, but the baby is not often expelled just by being dead. So a second drug has to be used, and that is misoprostol, and that drug causes the uterus to contract, and squeeze out the baby who has died, and hopefully the placenta.”

The problem, Harrison warned, is that the further along a woman is in her pregnancy, the less effective this drug cocktail is.

Supreme Court Upholds Pro-Life Law Requiring Proper Burial for Babies Killed in Abortions

Supreme Court Upholds Pro-Life Law Requiring Proper Burial or Cremation for Babies Killed in Abortions

by Steven Ertelt

Original date: May 1, 2023 at 3:58PM

After national controversy surrounding the Planned Parenthood abortion businesses’ sale of aborted babies and aborted baby body parts, then Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed into law a new measure providing that aborted babies may be buried or cremated.

The new law, passed years before Dobbs overturned Roe v. Wade, would help stop the kind of sale of aborted babies and their body parts that Planned Parenthood facilities in other states have been caught arranging.

(snip)

But Planned Parenthood sued to stop the law from being enforced and the lawsuit eventually made its way to the Supreme Court.
