From OneNewsNow.com:  I had to copy this story word for word…I LOVE this guy! Read on –  Pastor Walter Hoye has spent his second week in jail for protesting outside an Oakland, California, abortion clinic.  Hoye, a black pastor, is one of many who recognize that one-third of the unborn babies killed in abortion clinics are black. While in jail he has not been idle. Dr. Johnny Hunter of L.E.A.R.N., a pro-life organization, was asked how many inmates have become Christians since Hoye was put behind bars. “Three to date that we knew of the last time we talked to him,” he says.  Hunter adds Hoye has started a prison Bible study. “It’s amazing what God will do in a tough situation, but the truth of it is that brother has no problem even being there,” he notes. “That industry does not like black folks, and they especially didn’t like that of a black pastor simply standing out in front of them with that sign.”

Hoye’s sign said “Jesus loves you. Can I help?” Hoye was jailed for a month and fined $1,000. The law under which he was convicted has been challenged in federal court as unconstitutional.

From Newsok.com:  A woman seeking an abortion would have to provide her age, marital status and reason for terminating a pregnancy under a bill a Senate committee passed Thursday (3/26/09).  House Bill 1595 also would make it illegal to perform an abortion on a woman choosing to end her pregnancy because of the sex of the child.

The bill filed by Rep. Dan Sullivan, R-Tulsa, and carried by Sen. Todd Lamb, R-Edmond, in the Senate, passed the Senate Health and Human Services Committee with a vote of 6-3. The bill was widely debated as Democrats proposed three amendments, including a measure that would make abortion illegal in Oklahoma.

From the Orlando Sentinel:  The “ideologues are back” in the Florida Legislature with a bill (H.B. 983) that would require a woman seeking an abortion to undergo an ultrasound, except in cases of rape, incest or domestic violence if the woman shows a restraining order…..The bill, which is similar to a proposal defeated in last year’s legislative session, is “an overt attempt by pro-life forces to make it more difficult for women to get abortions…. The bill would require women to undergo an ultrasound, but they would not have to view the image if they sign a written waiver. The bill also would require doctors to give information on fetal development.
