Bene Diction Blogs On:  The real reason far-right Human Life International chief Thomas Euteneurer left the organization is that he was removed by his bishop due to a sex scandal.

Media Matters for America has a useful profile on Mark Crutcher, the antiabortion militant who inspired contemporary right-wing activists Lila Rose and James O'Keefe.  For background on Crutcher's campaign on which Rose modeled her recent efforts, I would add my article from Women's eNews and Katharine Mieszkowski's article from Salon.com.

AlterNet:  New Jersey Planned Parenthood Gets Bomb Threat After Fake Video "Sting" by Live Action, headed by Lila Rose.  James O'Keefe is also involved with the organization.

Digby discusses rape, Republicans, and the Hyde Amendment.

The following blog post includes a history of Thomas Euteneuer's anti-abortion activism:  The Shame of an Exorcist Admitting Violation of Chastity by Michelle Goldberg, The Daily Beast, February 2, 2011.  

And here is a relevant news story:  Anti-abortion group says multiple women have complained about disgraced priest by Lona O'Connor, Palm Beach Post, Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011.

About the exorcism trend in general and its relationship to the religious right wing, see my post Exorcism and religious intolerance here on Talk To Action.
