    Judge William Orrick levied a fine of $137,000 against David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) for violating his "gag" order in the case against them related to their undercover investigative report on Planned Parenthood (PP). Dalieden and the CMP produced a number of covertly recorded videos of PP officials engaging in illegal sales of aborted baby parts. "Mr. Daleiden may imagine himself a journalist going undercover to snare criminals," Orrick said. "However, he is not a recognized member of any established journalistic outlet—neither TV, radio, print nor electronic. He is, to all intents, just a private citizen...

    The System raised its brutal fist for all to see in Britain today. But the System didn’t win because Baby Charlie’s earthly struggle completely illuminated all of its horror in 3-D. “The System” raised its brutal fist in the face of the world from Britain today. It conceded, not in words, but in action how the parents of Charlie Gard had run out of time to secure outside help in trying to keep their baby alive. The System proved its terrible might in demonstrating to a World On Watch how it is impossible for a vulnerable baby and his parents...

    The Alliance Defending Freedom is a public interest law firm that fights to maintain religious liberty, free speech, and the right of people to freely live out their faith. The group was recently branded a “hate-group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which seems to think that disagreement with its ultra-left beliefs amounts to “hate.” One reason why ADF has earned the enmity of SPLC (and many others on the Left) is the success it has had in litigating against overreaching government policies that infringe upon Americans’ constitutional rights. Such a case is National Institute of Family and Life Advocates...

    Two opponents of a 12-year-old Alabama girl's decision to have an abortion after she was raped by a relative spoke out Wednesday during a news conference in Montgomery. Win Johnson, former Legal Director for the Administrative Office of Courts under Chief Justice Roy Moore, and Lorie Mullins, Executive Director of COPE Pregnancy Center, who has counseled post-abortive women, spoke regarding the court's decision. On Wednesday, the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals granted the unidentified child's petition to have an abortion without parental consent, a decision that bypasses Alabama's Parental Consent law. "There are two victims of this decision by the...

    What's Going on in Bergoglio's Pontifical Academy for Life Anyway? Edit: Randy Engel sent this to our e-mail. Hope we can help expose this manifest evil. Dear Friends – Is there no end to the anti-life scandals at Pontifical Academy for Life?  Or is it Death? Karolinska Institute is NOT a “Medical University.” It’s a Big Auschwitz  for unborn children.   In the selection of its members, the Vatican must also consider the institution that the member represents. In the case of Katarina Le Blanc that institution is the Karolinska Institute – one of the world’s foremost promoters of abortion and abortifacients. The Institute...

    It looks like Planned Parenthood won't be defunded and Obamacare won't be repealed thanks to three Republican senators. Republicans failed to rally enough senators to vote for the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which would repeal and replace Obamacare. Then, Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, announced the Senate would instead only vote on repealing the pro-abortion healthcare law. The bill repealing Obamacare would also defund Planned Parenthood for one year. Three Republican senators, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine, have all said they'd vote against the bill. This means McConnell doesn't...

    Jerry Coyne, a professor in the department of ecology and human evolution at the University of Chicago, recently posted a defense of killing disabled infants on his Why Evolution Is True blog: If you are allowed to abort a fetus that has a severe genetic defect, microcephaly, spina bifida, or so on, then why aren’t you able to euthanize that same fetus just after it’s born?

    Why should we care about the fate of unborn children who are at risk of death through abortion? Why do they matter? Many people don’t care. After all, unborn children are small and largely hidden from view. They look (at their earliest stages) different from us. They don’t have the sophisticated cognitive functions that we do. They can’t speak for themselves. Worse, many people feel like (or think they could feel like) they have a self-interest in the destruction of unborn children. Abortion, people think, makes life easier. That’s why it happens. This isn’t a problem unique to the unborn....

    Yesterday Judge William Orrick held David Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress, and two of David’s criminal defense attorneys in civil contempt for violating a court order prohibiting the release of video footage related to NAF conferences and related meetings. The footage was posted to a private website in May. Orrick said Daleiden’s lawyers published undercover video footage of a National Abortion Federation meeting in violation of a court order. “Criminal defense counsel … do not get to decide whether they can violate the preliminary injunction,” Orrick said Tuesday in court. Daleiden’s criminal defense attorneys argued that the videos are...

    President Donald Trump and talk show host Rosie O’Donnell do not have what one would call a “good” relationship. The two have been feuding for years, and Trump has gone out of his way to mock O’Donnell both on Twitter and during one of the early primary debates. In response, O’Donnell has been vocally opposed to Trump’s policies, and she apparently is a fan of a game where users kill the president. Over the weekend, O’Donnell tweeted a link to the online game “Push Trump Off A Cliff Again,” which, as one could infer, is a simple game that involves...

    Emma Bonino, a former abortionist once praised by Pope Francis as “a great Italian,” will appear in a Catholic church to present the pro-migrant campaign “ERO STRANIERO: La humanità che fa bene” (“I was a stranger: Humanity that does good”) As an abortion rights activist and an abortionist herself, Bonino is directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of approximately six million Italian babies between 1968 and today. Bonino’s appearance in the Church of San Defendente, Ronco di Cassato, on July 26 will be one of several events celebrating World Refugee Day 2017. The moderator of Bonino’s talk will be...

    Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia explained the new strategic vision of the Pontifical Academy for Life in an interview with Austen Ivereigh for Crux. The Italian prelate brushed aside criticism that the Pontifical Academy has downgraded its commitment to the pro-life struggle, explaining that the institution will now pursue a more diverse agenda. He spoke about a commitment to the environment, observing that in the Book of Genesis, God gives Adam and Eve a mandate to care for his Creation. Archbishop Paglia criticized groups that oppose abortion without also devoting attention to issues such as the environment and the death penalty, and...

    Eleven pro-life activists have been charged with violating the federal F.A.C.E. act following a peaceful rescue event outside a Kentucky abortion facility in May. The event, held outside the EMW women’s abortion facility in Louisville, was organized by Operation Save America (OSA). Rev. Rusty Thomas, national director of Operation Save America (OSA), said he decided to check his e-mail late Tuesday evening he discovered that he along with ten other pro-life activists had been formally charged under the federal F.A.C.E. act. F.A.C.E. is the “Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act,” a draconian piece of legislation signed into law by...

    FULL TITLE: Mother-of-one dies after being forced to have FOUR abortions in a year by her husband who wants to have a son A woman in China has reportedly died after being forced to go through four abortions in a year because her husband wanted a son. The woman, who had one daughter, was told by her husband to terminate her pregnancies whenever the medical scan showed she was carrying a girl, according to Chinese media. Her husband was said to have proposed a divorce earlier this year after the woman had been left bedridden by the traumatic medical operations....

    Study: Lege's family planning cuts led to an increase in abortionWith the goal of eliminating abortion, Texas Republicans have stripped Planned Parenthood of funding and steadily obstructed patient access to care over the past few years. Turns out, their ideological, anti-choice crusade is having the opposite effect. A new study shows abortion rates have jumped since Planned Parenthood was blocked.While at Texas A&M University, economics professor Analisa Packham found that when the Texas Legislature cut family planning funding by two-thirds, or $76 million, in 2011 and simultaneously defunded Planned Parenthood, teen abortions increased 3.1% in the following three years while...

    In a recent interview with CTV News, Marie-Claude Bibeau, Canada's Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, called abortion a "tool to end poverty" and labeled the Catholic Church's objections "illogical and self-serving." "Abortions reduce the number of people sharing the world's resources," Bibeau pointed out. "Culling the population in this manner means there is a bigger slice of the pie for each survivor. The Church's opposition would condemn an ever-growing human herd to subsist on shrinking shares of material goods." "I try to be tolerant of their religious beliefs, but I can't acquiesce to their sinister plan to promote...

    Konbini ^ | 7/10/2017 | Kimberly B. Johnson
    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...

    Under a law signed on Wednesday, pro-life pregnancy centers in Hawaii will be forced to tell patients about free abortions provided by the state. And if they don't, they could face fines up to $1,000 dollars for a repeated offense. There are currently five pro-life centers in the state. "This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate," reads the mandatory notification the centers will have to provide patients with. "Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to...
