    The board of the Madison Surgery Center unanimously approved an abortion clinic on Friday, meaning second-trimester abortions will be offered there within a few months.The facility, at 1 S. Park St., will provide abortions primarily to women 19 to 22 weeks pregnant.

Planned Parenthood will still do abortions up to 19 weeks.Peggy Hamill, state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, repeated earlier calls for a boycott of the facility and said protests...

    It’s happened again. Yet another Planned Parenthood clinic has been caught on tape advocating a girl circumvent state law in order to obtain an abortion. This time, the stage was the Margaret Sanger Center in Tuscon, Arizona, where UCLA student and Live Action Films President Lila Rose went undercover with a friend, Jackie Stollar. As reported by Live Action’s press release: … Rose tells the nurse that Stollar, posing as a 15-year-old, is pregnant by her 27-year-old boyfriend. The nurse disregards the age difference and even cautions Stollar not to bring her "boyfriend" before the judicial hearing required in Arizona...

Many of the centers are located in suburban shopping malls. Last year, the organization altered its mission statement, which used...

    We are accustomed to seeing Evangelicals and Roman Catholics praying together outside abortion clinics and working together for pro-life legislation. But we don't think about a less pleasant ecumenism: Catholics and Evangelicals waiting together in the lobby of an abortion facility.
