    ROME, GEORGIA, April 17, 2012, ( – A 100-year-old Baptist health ministry in Georgia has withdrawn a $42,000 grant from a clinic that dispenses the morning-after pill – but a clinic spokeswoman says she is keeping the money already given.    Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry awarded the funds to the Women’s Organization for Reproductive and Total Health-care (WORTH) clinic of Rome, Georgia, to support its cervical cancer screenings, with the goal of doubling its 600 patient load. However, an unidentified minister alerted the ministry that the facility distributes the morning-after pill. Local media report that representatives of Women...
  • Hospital tells patients to do own laundry

    04/17/2012 6:54:19 PM PDT · by nuconvert · 16 replies
    Cost-cutting measures at Saint-Vincent Hospital's complex continuing care unit mean patients could soon be responsible for doing their own laundry. Officials at St. Vincent Hospital, which is part of Bruyre Continuing Care, said instead of using a cleaning service the continuing care unit would be installing coin-operated washers and dryers for patients and their families to use. The organization said it is $2 million in debt and needs to find savings. They are hoping family members can help the patients do their laundry after a new policy is in place starting in June.

    PEORIA, Illinois, April 17, 2012 ( – In a stunning homily on the weekend, an Illinois bishop slammed President Obama for his “radical pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda” and said Catholics must line up against that agenda at the ballot box in November or else lose all her dearly-held institutions. “This fall, every practicing Catholic must vote, and must vote their Catholic consciences, or by the following fall our Catholic schools, our Catholic hospitals, our Catholic Newman Centers, all our public ministries—only excepting our church buildings – could easily be shut down,” said Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria at a...

    As a "Pro-family" Republican Candidate: by his undeniable record fully documented below, Mitt Romney: - created RomneyCare which is terribly similar to ObamaCare but even worse for it openly funds abortion - put Planned Parenthood on the so-called "independent" board he created that offers $50 co-pay abortions - thereby instituted tax-funded abortion on demand two years after his orchestrated "pro-life" conversion - as late as summer 2011 continues to defend aborting tens of thousands of kids (denying their God-given right to life) - supported destructive embryonic research after his false 2004 pro-life conversion - put a pro-abortion Democratic judge on...

In fact, they deliberately tried to bury the story. ... The story in question was titled Health care law will add $340 billion to deficit, new study finds. It pointed out that the administration had double-counted Medicare savings in the law and once you adjusted for that it added to the deficit rather than reducing it, as the White House...

    An embryo has no rights. Rights do not pertain to a potential, only to an actual being. A child cannot acquire any rights until it is born. The living take precedence over the not-yet-living (or the unborn). Abortion is a moral rightwhich should be left to the sole discretion of the woman involved; morally, nothing other than her wish in the matter is to be considered. Who can conceivably have the right to dictate to her what disposition she is to make of the functions of her own body?

    The NARAL Pro-Choice America organization lashed out at the film October Baby for its message and methods. Movie-goers need to be aware that this film is out-of-step with mainstream America, NARAL spokesperson Adora Slaughter contended. It implies that carrying a baby to term is THE right choice. It conceals the fact that one-in-four pregnancies is terminated by abortion. The notion that one-in-four women might be making the wrong choice flies in the face of Secretary Sebelius determination that women have the right to make this choice and that insurers must cover it regardless of any psuedo conscientious objections. On top...

    GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney got back-to-back endorsements from prominent pro-life groups Thursday, signaling that anti-abortion forces will overlook his previous pro-choice positions in their shared desire to defeat President Obama in the general election. The Susan B. Anthony List threw its support behind Mr. Romney in a morning news release and National Right-to-Life, the nations oldest and largest pro-life organization, followed suit with a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington. Now is the time to unite behind Gov. Romney in order to defeat the most ideologically pro-abortion president in our nations history, said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president...

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed into law a bill that bans most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, saying it protects women and the unborn. This legislation is consistent with my strong track record of supporting common sense measures to protect the health of women and safeguard our most vulnerable population the unborn, Gov. Brewer said April 12. Knowing that abortions become riskier the later they are performed in pregnancy, she said, it only makes sense to prohibit these procedures past twenty weeks. The legislation, H.B. 2036, bars abortion in cases where the unborn child is 20 weeks...

    Abortionby Sebastian R. FamaThere are a variety of reasons given to justify an abortion. They include such things as I cant afford a baby, a baby would interfere with my career, I have enough children, and the doctor said if we have this child it will be handicapped. We are told that every child should be a wanted child.But does any of this really matter? The real question is not whether a child is wanted; the real question is whether or not what is growing inside the mother is a living child. If it is not a living child, a...

    Many people know Presidential Mitt Romney as a Republican candidate running for President who likes to complain about President Obama. Many do not see him as a former Mormon Bishop in charge of thousands of Mormon congregants. An investigation based on interviews suggest Romney was pretty radical in his Mormon beliefs. According to a Huffington news report - as a young bishop, Romney got word that Carroll Shelton, a woman in his ward, was considering an abortion. This was Shelton's sixth pregnancy. She was in her 40s, had four teenage children and had developed medical complications. As the story goes...

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a pro-life bill into law today to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. House members passed the bill by a 37-22 vote and abortions after that time period would not be allowed except in very rare cases of medical emergency. The bill also requires abortion facilities to allow women to have an ultrasound of their unborn baby at least 24 hours prior to having the abortion. In many cases women change their minds about a planned abortion after seeing the images of their developing child. Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest commended Brewer...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 12, 2012 ( – Seminarians from the only Pontifical College in the U.S. have an awe-inspiring approach for confronting abortion head-on. Dressed in full regalia of a black cassock, a traditional red sash, and armed with a rosary, the seminarians descend in a powerful show of force every Saturday on a local abortion facility to confront with prayer what the seminary’s rector calls the “poison of abortion.” Father James Wehner, rector of the Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio, says he believes that seminarians need to “see visibly the forces of evil at work, and respond with an...

    National Right to Life and two other major pro-family groups have endorsed Mitt Romney for president, saying that on the issues of abortion and marriage, he stands with them. National Right to Life's endorsement Thursday (April 12) came two days after Romney's leading challenger for the Republican nomination -- Rick Santorum -- dropped out, making Romney the presumptive nominee. Also endorsing Romney were the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that supports pro-life women for political office, and the National Organization for Marriage, which has led the charge nationwide in protecting the traditional definition of marriage. In its endorsement, National...

    A decade ago, while running for Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney vowed to "preserve and protect a woman's right to choose" abortion. On Thursday, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee won the endorsement of both the oldest and largest anti-abortion group in the nation the National Right to Life Committee and one of the newer groups with a large wad of cash ready to spend on his behalf the Susan B. Anthony List. National Right to Life Committee President Carol Tobias said Romney's former position supporting abortion rights doesn't bother her or her organization.
