As a person who documents abortion I believe it is important to document the abortion positions of our Nation’s leaders, including Nancy Reagan.

Many people do not know that as Governor Ronald Reagan signed the first abortion law in California.

Authors Paul Kengor & Patricia Clark Doerner recount this history in a 2008 National Review article:

On June 14, 1967, Ronald Reagan signed the Therapeutic Abortion Act, after only six months as California governor. From a total of 518 legal abortions in California in 1967, the number of abortions would soar to an annual average of 100,000 in the remaining years of Reagan’s two terms — more abortions than in any U.S. state prior to the advent of Roe v. Wade. Reagan’s signing of the abortion bill was an ironic beginning for a man often seen as the modern father of the pro-life movement. How did this happen? When the issue surfaced in the first months of his governorship, Reagan was unsure how to react. Surprising as it may seem today, in 1967 abortion was not the great public issue that it is today. Reagan later admitted that abortion had been “a subject I’d never given much thought to.” Moreover, his aides were divided on the question.

In 1967, as one of the nation’s first abortion laws it legalized abortion when the pregnancy threatened the physical or mental health of the mother and also allowed abortion in cases of rape. The law restricted abortion after 20 weeks.

Prior to its legalization, Section 274 of the Penal Code, read: “Every person who provides, supplies, or administers to any woman, or procures any woman to take any medicine, drug, or substance, or uses or employs any instrument or other means whatever, with intent thereby to procure the miscarriage of such woman, unless the same is necessary to preserve her life, is punishable by imprisonment in the State prison not less than two nor more than five years.”

In 1967, the statute was amended and sections 25950 through 25954 (“Therapeutic Abortion Act”) added to the Health and Safety Code. The act extended the lawful grounds for obtaining an abortion. fn. 2 Section 274 is directed towards the abortionist. Under section 275 of the [71 Cal. 2d 960] Penal Code (also amended by the Therapeutic Abortion Act), a woman who solicits or submits to an abortion is punishable by up to five years’ imprisonment; similarly, under section 276, any person who solicits a woman to submit to an abortion is punishable by up to five years’ imprisonment. The law’s evolution is described further here.

California abortion law 1967

By 1971, a state appeals court ruled that all abortions could be legal in the state of California.

According to a study published in 1971, therapeutic abortions in California increased from 5,030 in 1968 to 15,339 in 1969, and over 60,000 were estimated for 1970. As a result regionally, in 1969 the San Francisco Bay Area had six times as many abortions (115 per 1000 births) as did the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area.

Then by 1971, projections became truth and according to reports, over 62,000 abortions were performed in the state that year prompting Nancy Reagan in 1972, to observe that the California abortion law was being abused.

Nancy Reagan’s stand on abortion showed confusion as early as the 1970’s

In 1972, Governor Ronald Reagan’s wife, Nancy Reagan added this about the law her husband passed, “If we accept the right to take life before birth are we so far from making the decision after birth?”

Despite the strong statement, Nancy added that she supported a woman’s right to choose abortion in certain cases:

“I agree with the California abortion law passed by under husband, however, I believe it has been terribly abused.”

GOvernor ROnald Reagan'

The large numbers of abortion brought about by a law that Ronald Reagan signed weighed heavily on him.

Author Edmund Morris said that Ronald Reagan was left with an “undefinable sense of guilt” after watching abortions skyrocket.
If there is a question as to whether there is life or death, the doubt should be resolved in favor of life,” he wrote.

Reagan biographer Lou Cannon claims this was “the only time as governor or president that Reagan acknowledged a mistake on major legislation.” Reagan’s longtime adviser and Cabinet secretary Bill Clark called the incident “perhaps Reagan’s greatest disappointment in public life.”

Ronald Reagan went on to become the most pro-life president the US has had since the legalization of abortion through the Roe v. Wade decision.

In 1975, Nancy criticized welfare (Government funded abortion):

“Our welfare program making abortions available to under aged girls regardless of their families financial situation and without informing family” amounted to “government at the highest level interfering in family relationships.”

Tragically by 1994, the former first lady Nancy Reagan went on record as supporting abortion along with former first lady Barbara Bush:

“I don’t believe in abortion,” Nancy Reagan said.

On the other hand I believe in a woman’s choice. That puts me somewhere in the middle, but I don’t know what to call that,” she added.

By 2002, Nancy Reagan was pushing embryonic stem cell research something pro-lifers opposed:

Nancy saw the move as a way to find a cure for Alzheimer’s something President Ronald Reagan suffered from prior to his death.

Nancy Reagan gave an award to her son Ron Reagan-for his fight for embryonic stem cell research:

OTHER FIRST LADY’S WHO DISAGREED WITH THEIR HUSBAND’S PRO-LIFE STAND:

In an interview with Larry King, Barbara Bush described how her “fetus” was placed in a jar after a miscarriage:

“That’s one issue, I’m not a one issue person,” Barbara Said of her pro-choice views.

Former first lady Laura Bush also came out as in favor of abortion to Larry King,

“I think it’s important that it [abortion] remains legal,” she said.

Pro-choice men attack girlfriends over abortions

A few years ago, Life Dynamics, Inc. a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas documented that violence inflicted on pregnant women by pro-choice men who want their pregnancy aborted is nothing new.

Under The Radar report pro-choice men force abortio

A large volume of these cases has been compiled in a report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion.”

So, it is no shocker that today on the Life Dynamics’ Blog they have posted stories of men who attacked women for refusing abortions and in one case, because the procedure took too long.

From Life Dynamics’ Blogs:

An Indiana pro-choice man has been charged with attempted feticide after giving his pregnant girlfriend an herbal supplement known to cause miscarriages.

25 year-old Jarod Rebuck spent Christmas in jail, after the victim said she smelled a strange odor in her drink and grew suspicious.

Rebuck had allegedly spiked the drink and the victim, who was 4 weeks pregnant, contacted police after she found Google searches on his cell phone for “ways to cause a miscarriage,” according to WRTV.

Life News is reporting another act of pro-choice violence on a pregnant woman, this time a man shoots his girlfriend for refusing to take abortion pills.

    A man who worried his girlfriend may be pregnant shot her in the head because she refused to take the morning-after pill, which he believed would either prevent her from becoming pregnant or end the life of her developing unborn child shortly after conception.

    Breyana Lewis was reportedly shot in the head and local police report that, after answering an emergency call, they found Lewis with bullet fragments in her head. Lewis told officers with Las Vegas police’s Violent Crimes Section that she had been having a sexual relationship with Myrick for two months when the altercation happened.

    Gregory Myrick, 21, was taken into custody along with Daquesha Fowler, a 20-year apparently in a love triangle with Myrick, with Fowler allegedly shooting Lewis because she refused to take the pill.

Dear Son: remembering baby Scotland Bansley Riles born at 20 weeks and loved dearly

At almost 20 weeks pregnant, Tom Riles and his wife lost Scotland Bansley Riles to miscarriage.

Scotland
Riles said that when they received the news that the baby had died in the womb, they were offered several options – go to a “clinic” to “take care of the situation” or go to the Hospital. He said that they chose the hospital to deliver the baby because of their FAITH. Riles said he was so thankful they did it that way.

He and his wife were placed in a high risk section of the maternity wing so they were not around other babies being born but received a ton of support from friends and family as well as the hospital staff.

On his Life of Dad Show, Riles recounts their sad experience, “As the day went on, it was devastating but she went into labor and had the baby…and that’s why I wanted to tell this story because I wanted people to know that this is an option. The baby was born, we held the baby, the doctor gave the baby to us, and we were with him for about an hour just taking turns holding and singing to him and talking to him and telling about his brother and sister and we were crying, we’re crushed, but at he same time it was beautiful. Even though our son wasn’t alive, life never felt so, I can’t think of the right verb, amazing….parts of it were amazing, to be holding your son there… At the same time you’re thinking about the life that he’s not going to have…so sad but at the same time so powerful knowing and proud knowing that we, especially my wife, did everything she could for that kid, and gave him the same respect and love and support as she did our other two babies that are of course, are alive…and to have no regrets at this point.”

This was originally posted to the Life of Dad Blog:

Dear Son,

I held you on Friday night for the first and last time ever. It was one of the saddest, proudest, most heartbreaking, and beautiful moments of my life. It was an honor to hold you.

I’m proud of you, son. Even though you only made it halfway through the pregnancy, you have left a mark on our family that will last forever. Because of you, I love my wife more than ever. Because of you, I feel a stronger connection with my kids then ever. When I hug them, I feel your presence.

Sadly, I’ll always remember the phone call last week from your mom when she told me that we lost you. I was home with your brother and sister, and I was in shock. Your pregnancy seemed to be the smoothest and most healthy one that your mom had ever had. I did my best to comfort her on the phone, and then we grieved together when you both got home. Our kids didn’t let us cry too much, though, because they kept requesting snacks, more snacks, and more snacks after that.

Usually Friday is a day that I look forward to, but not last Friday. I never shave on Fridays, but this time I did. This was the only day that I would ever hold you…I had to look my best. When we checked into the hospital at 8AM, it was a dark, dreary, and rainy day, just like the feeling in our hearts.

Your mom took medication to start the labor process, and over the next 10 hours, she showed her love and devotion to you as we neared your birth. By the way, your mom is the most incredible and beautiful person I have ever met. I’m so lucky to be with her and call her my wife.

At 8:35PM on Friday, February 28th, you were born. Even though there was no life in your beautiful body, you were full of love, heart, and courage.

ScotlandScotty, that is your older brother, Tommy, blowing out a candle celebrating your life.

ScotlandYour mom held you, and then it was my turn. I felt both happy and devastated to be holding my second son in the palm of my hands. We cried. We told you about your brother and sister. We visualized you running through open fields somewhere, free, happy, and full of life. We sang to you. After singing the final line of “Silent Night” to you… “Sleep in heavenly peace…” we knew that it was time to say goodbye.

You were with us for way too short of a time, but you will be remembered forever. We named you Scotland Bansley Riles, and your mom and I will bring your ashes with us someday when we travel to Scotland. Usually we don’t travel with our kids (they’re a little too crazy), but we want to show you the world.

Our precious Scotty… I miss you more than I’ve ever missed anything. We love you. We will honor you. We will be better parents and people because of you. Thank you.

Love, Dad

IMG_1010Scotty, that is your older brother, Tommy, blowing out a candle celebrating your life.
For anybody that is going through a situation like this, know that you are not alone.

Riles said that he posted this letter and is speaking about this because he said when people go through a miscarriage they feel they are all alone.

Pasco teen charged in pregnant girlfriend beating

Posted: 02/01/2011
• By: Associated Press


NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – A pregnant teenage girl’s boyfriend organized an attack hoping to make her miscarry. The baby is expected to be okay, but police say after his arrest, the boyfriend continued to try to plan other attacks on the girl.

18-year-old Devin R. Nickels was arrested in January by the Florida State University Police Department in Tallahassee. He is charged with solicitation to commit aggravated battery.
Authorities say he hired 19-year-old Andres Luis Marrero to kidnap his 17-year-old pregnant girlfriend. Authorities say Nickels and the girl were at an apartment complex and Marrero came over pretending to be an armed robber. He allegedly forced them into the woods and kicked her in the stomach. She was treated and the fetus appears to be uninjured.

Marrero faces charges of armed kidnapping and aggravated battery on a pregnant female.

After his arrest, police say, Nickles continued to ask people to carry out the attacks, in the hopes the girl would miscarry.

Human babies flushed down toilet by Paramedics, woman sues

Posted in Outrage with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2011 by saynsumthn

FOX6 News reporter Emily Luxen talks with the attorney of Kimberly Garrison, who has filed a lawsuit against the first responders she says flushed her stillborn twins down a toilet.

A St. Clair County woman is suing Jasper-based Regional Paramedical Services and former Odenville Fire Chief David Davis for allegedly flushing her stillborn twin fetus’ down a toilet after suffering a miscarriage at her home last year.

Kimberly Garrison of Odenville filed legal documents Tuesday which detailed events on July 23, 2010. At the time, Garrison was 20 weeks pregnant with twins when she began experiencing extreme abdominal pain, eventually leading to the miscarriage of the fetuses.

Garrison’s father, Raymond Garrison, called 911 and Davis along with two emergency medical technicians from Regional Paramedical Services arrived at their home. After finding Kimberly Garrison in “medical distress, extremely distraught, and experiencing pain and bleeding,” one or more of the responders flushed the miscarried fetuses down the toilet.
Shortly after the alleged incident, Davis was fired from his position with the city of Odenville and did not seek reinstatement.

Raymond Garrison called the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and had them retrieve the fetuses from the home’s septic tank so the bodies could be “properly and humanely cared for.”

Arrest for arranging girlfriend’s miscarriage
Tuesday, September 21, 2010

VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) — Oxnard resident Jaime Solis Olmos, 22, is facing 25 years to life in prison for paying two men $500 to stage a robbery and punch his pregnant girlfriend so she would have a miscarriage.

Monday, a Ventura County Superior Court Judge found Olmos guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of attempted murder.

Olmos reportedly did not want to support a child or his girlfriend, Justina Cornejo, after she told him she would not get an abortion.

Prosecutors say Olmos hired the men to stage a robbery and attack the pregnant girlfriend.

In January 2008, while the couple was parked in a car at a Newbury Park overlook, the men attacked the woman, punching her in the face and stomach.
Cornejo later gave birth to a baby boy, who is now a healthy 2-year-old.

Sheriff’s Deputy Ken Mitchell testified Monday that he questioned Olmos and Cornejo, who had dried blood under her nose and a swollen right cheek.

Cornejo and Olmos were in the backseat of the car when two suspects opened the doors and held down Cornejo with a knife to her throat, according to Mitchell.

“She began to scream, and she was punched in the face,” Mitchell testified.

He said Cornejo told him she was punched twice in the face and once in the stomach. Mitchell said the defendant had no visible injuries and told him he was not injured.

In court, Dunlevy told the judge that Olmos made self-serving remarks to the assailants, saying “don’t hit her. She’s pregnant to keep up the appearance that he was a victim.”

Unborn Baby Murder Hearing

Originally printed at http://www.wbng.com/news/local/93462479.html
May 11, 2010

Sayre, PA (WBNG Binghamton) A Steuben County man heads to court to face charges of killing his unborn child in Bradford County.

A woman claims her former boyfriend admitted to causing her to have a miscarriage.

39-year-old Orbin Tercero of Bath is charged with first degree murder of an unborn child.

On Tuesday he was at district court in Sayre for preliminary hearings.

Police say Tercero used a pill to force his former girlfriend to miscarry at her home in Sayre.

The woman said Tercero wanted her to have an abortion.

He was engaged to another woman at the time.

Three weeks into her pregnancy, the victim decided she wanted to keep the child.

She believed they reconciled their differences and they continued their relationship.

But in February, the prosecution claims Tercero inserted a pill into the victim during an intimate moment, without her knowledge.

The victim and the defendant’s ex-fiance said in testimony Tercero admitted to the crime.

District Attorney Dan Barrett says they have a lot of work to get done before Tercero is arraigned in June.

“We’ll be doing a great deal more work,” said Dan Barrett, Bradford County District Attorney. “There’s some other witnesses that need to be interviewed and checked out.”
Barrett says they don’t expect a trial to begin any earlier than July.

Defense attorneys are trying to prove there is no concrete evidence the drug, cytotec, is what caused the miscarriage.

If convicted, Tercero could be sentenced to life in prison.
