Carly Fiorina is proud to be pro-life. She's also not willing to let Hillary Clinton's extreme stance on abortion go unnoticed. Flanked by pro-life leaders Tuesday, Carly Fiorina's campaign released a short video in response to the second and arguably worst, undercover Planned Parenthood video. The second investigative video showed yet another ranking Planned Parenthood official nonchalantly discussing the sale of aborted baby parts. "These pro-life leaders are standing with me today to decry the moral depravity that we have seen now from Planned Parenthood. It doesn't matter whether you think you're pro-choice or pro-life, every woman, every man has to look at these videos and think, what has gone wrong in our nation?" said Fiorina. "The hypocrisy of telling women over and over again that their unborn children are not life and yet talking calmly about how to preserve the organs of that life to save another life. The cruelty of denying women over and over again ultrasounds, so that they can see the life they carry within them and yet using that same technology to ensure the organs are preserved so that they can be presumable sold to save others."

Of everything I've witnessed from the pro-abortion crowd this ad quickly took its place among the most disturbing. It's not disturbing because it's gruesome or gory or because it mocks pro-lifers -- it doesn't. "The End of Pretending" is uniquely disturbing because it seeks to make the senseless murder of an unborn child the solution to a less than perfect life. "Let's pretend that life is perfect and everything happens exactly as you plan," the ad begins says. It goes on to paint what I suppose is a "dream" scenario of a perfect life. But because we all know that life isn't perfect, you'll probably need an abortion, suggests the ad. In an interesting departure from the "reproductive rights" mantra, UltraViolet chose to call abortion a "productive" right; which makes sense if you view children as disposable glob of cells impeding the road to your dream job. Take a look:

Sen. Paul made headlines a few weeks ago when he lobbed the abortion gotcha questions back into the Democrat's court. This week, Paul released a video detailing his pro-life stance. On Facebook, Sen. Paul's official campaign account included the following statement:
I strongly believe in the sanctity of life and that an abortion takes the life of an innocent human being. As a physician, one of the first things we learn is to ‘do no harm.’ Since the Roe v. Wade decision, over 50 million children have been killed in abortion procedures. This is a tragedy. We cannot have liberty if we do not first protect life. As President, I will champion an agenda that supports and defends all human life, no matter how defenseless.
"Can a country founded on God-given rights continue to thrive without understanding that life is a precious gift from our Creator?" asks Paul. A bit theatric, but well done nonetheless:

Late last month, the internet descended into justified outrage over the launch of a "spa-like" abortion clinic located in Friendship Heights, just outside of Washington, D.C. Carafem's approach to the business of abortion is made clear in one of their many flippant, casual slogans: Abortion. Yeah, we do that. In my head, I always follow it up with, You got a PROBLEM with that? Yes, yes I do. The clinic's founders are loud and proud about what they do, and they want to make sure that their patients feel comfortable with their choice to end the life of the tiny human incubating peacefully within. Carafem's new ad campaign, however, goes one step further, and challenges the existence itself of rightful opposition to abortion. Watch:

'Heartbreaking' doesn't do this story justice. Ruzan Badalyan gave birth to a baby boy with down syndrome. She then gave her husband an ultimatum -- he must choose her or the child. Samuel Forrest chose his son. ABC News reports:
"This pediatrician walks out of the room with a little bundle -- that was Leo," Forrest said. "She had his face covered up and hospital authorities wouldn't let me see him or my wife. When the doctor came out, he said 'there’s a real problem with your son.' Forrest followed doctors and nurses into a room where he'd finally get to meet his baby. "When I walked into the room they all turned to me and said 'Leo has Down syndrome," he told ABC News. "I had a few moments of shock." After the news had sunk in, Forrest held Leo for the very first time. "They took me in see him and I looked at this guy and I said, he's beautiful -- he's perfect and I'm absolutely keeping him." Soon Forrest walked into his wife's hospital room with Leo in his arms. Her reaction was unlike one he ever expected.
