    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A federal judge in Austin has stopped Texas from banning Planned Parenthood from participating in the state's Women's Health Program. Judge Lee Yeakel ruled Monday there is sufficient evidence the state law is unconstitutional. He imposed an injunction against.... The law passed last year by the Republican-controlled Legislature forbids state agencies from providing funds to an organization affiliated with abortion providers.

    Meet the RACIST Fascist Cult that believes the Christian Bible justifies the RAPE of white women, that preaches the DEATH OF AMERICA will come through a nuclear attack, and that is PRO-SLAVERY for Americans of white-descent. They call themselves the Black Hebrew-Israelites and are compromised of mainly black Americans (but also Native Americans and Latinos) who believe they are the descendants of the original Israelites whom through the generations eventually found their way to America as a tribe of individuals. They are a radical and violent group that the mainstream media, conservative media, and law enforcement agencies need to keep...

    End-of-life care: Pain control carries risk of being called a killer Accusations of euthanasia are common as patients, families and even other health professionals struggle to adjust to the new realities of end-of-life care. By Kevin B. O'Reilly, amednews staff. Posted April 16, 2012. Three decades after hospice emerged as the standard of care for terminally ill patients, the end-of-life treatments that palliative medicine physicians provide are frequently referred to as murder, euthanasia and killing.More than half of hospice and palliative medicine physicians say patients, family members and even other health professionals have used those terms to describe care they...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told The Daily Caller in a video interview that he is dropping out of the Republican presidential race 'probably about Wednesday' May 2 and endorsing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Gingrich, alongside his wife Callista, said the GOP's message in the general election should be, "Can you afford four more years like this? Not complicated. Do you want this much unemployment, this high a gasoline price, this much deficit spending? You have a great president but if you don't want this, you better vote for somebody new."

    August 12, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - At the same time that the National Right to Life Committee has unearthed documents proving that Barack Obama repeatedly voted against a bill that would have protected children born alive after an attempted abortion, Illuminati Pictures has released a video of an interview with a nurse who witnessed the very practice that Obama protected while in the Illinois senate (See: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/aug/08081101.html  ). Jill Stanek was a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois in 1999 when she discovered that babies born alive after failed abortions purposely were being left to die in the "soiled...

    While the right to privacy may have been the key to securing abortion rights in Roe v. Wade, some advocates of the controversial procedure today want to walk around with a sign, t-shirt to be exact, broadcasting their reproductive decisions. In 2004, abortion advocate and author Jennifer Baumgardner launched the “I Had an Abortion” project to encourage women and men to “come out” about their procedures. The campaign featured shirts that read “I Had an Abortion,” a book, photo exhibit, and documentary film featuring 10 women – including feminist Gloria Steinem – describe their abortion experiences spanning seven decades.

    According to Catholic faith, every sin can be forgiven during life because of God’s surpassing love (DS 349). However, the Scriptures speak of sins that cannot be forgiven in the sense that they constitute a terrible offense against the truth and the light, against the Holy Spirit (Mt 12: 31-32; 1 Jn 5:16). In speaking of sin this way, the Scriptures refer to a sin more radical than most mortal sins, for it is a sin whose nature blocks forgiveness. Since the time of Saint Augustine, theologians have provided us with a list of sins against the Holy Spirit, proceeding...

    A new Obama administration report claims that health reform (ObamaCare) will save taxpayers $200 billion in the Medicare program through 2016. To what do we owe this good fortune? A good chunk of the savings, we are told, will be produced by lowering "excessive payments" to Medicare Advantage plans. These are plans operated by such private insurers as Aetna, Humana and WellPoint. They typically provide seniors with the kind of comprehensive coverage non-seniors have. Another source of savings will be lower payments to doctors, hospitals and other providers to reflect their "improved productivity." Finally, the administration expects efficiencies gained from...

    Republican leaders in the Oklahoma Legislature have killed a pro-life bill without even allowing a floor vote on the measure. The “personhood” bill would acknowledge that life begins at conception and has been passed or is under debate in a dozen states. The Oklahoma House and Senate are controlled by Republican leaders who run for re-election under a GOP pro-life platform that promotes the sanctity of life. One GOP lawmaker said the personhood bill was killed because the State Chamber of Commerce instructed the GOP leadership to do so because the chamber didn’t want any negative national publicity.

    Abortion in the United States has claimed the lives of over 54 million babies since its legalization in 1973 – this we know. It has stolen grandchildren; future friends; future spouses; and future doctors, humanitarians, and congresswomen. It’s an American tragedy, and we are witnessing the beginning stages of its long-awaited demise. Unfortunately, in addition to stealing the lives of innocent children, abortion has caused a great deal of damage to American culture. 1. Children Became a Curse If there is anything that population control committees and pro-aborts have succeeded at, it is convincing most of America that children are...

    Dr. Mark I. Evans is known around the world for his work in genetics, prenatal screening and diagnosis, and the selective reduction of pregnancies. Of course, “selective reduction” is code for the choosing and killing of one or more babies in a multiple pregnancy. You don’t reduce children – you kill them. But Dr. Evans prefers to refer to this procedure as “pregnancy management.” He admits that, in the first reduction he performed, he “stabbed two of the fetuses with a needle.” Today, the general technique – and the one used by Dr. Evans – is plunging a needle filled...
  • Overturning ObamaCare isn't 'Judicial Activism'

    Since the Supreme Court's historic three-day ObamaCare hearings in late March, the president and his supporters have tried to pressure the Justices into upholding that law, asserting that any other decision would overstep the court's constitutional bounds. Ruling against ObamaCare would not be what the president called illegitimate "judicial activism," but an appropriate exercise of the Supreme Court's core constitutional role. "Judicial activism" is one of those agreeably ambiguous terms that can support almost any criticism of the courts. Under our constitutional system, judicial activism entails judges rewriting rather than interpreting the laws, exercising "will instead of judgment," in Alexander...

American officials would not confirm reports that Mr. Chen has sought refuge in the American Embassy. ----------------- A self-taught lawyer once lauded by the state media for his work defending farmers and the disabled, Mr. Chen, 40, angered local officials after taking on the case of thousands of women who had been forcibly sterilized...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business waged a $100,000 bet that it could influence a race for the state legislature and it lost that battle. Although the plan backfired, Planned Parenthood could target more top pro-life state legislators with such campaigns as it desperately tries to hang on to taxpayer funding in states that have not yet decided to defund it. In Pennsylvania’s 134th House district, they spent an eye-popping $100,000 on a TV ad campaign trying to sink the candidacy of Republican Ryan Mackenzie by linking him to ultrasound legislation that was before the legislature.

    The Obama administration has hired Planned Parenthood's former spokesman to work in the Department of Health and Human Services' press shop -- angering anti-abortion groups, who pointed to the decision as evidence of the administration's bias. The federal health department tapped Tait Sye, former media relations director at Planned Parenthood, to be the new deputy assistant secretary for public affairs. In that role, Sye is likely to be dealing with many of the same controversies through which he navigated during his time at Planned Parenthood. While working for the abortion provider, Sye was outspoken in his organization's support for the...

    WARNING: Offensive Language BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, April 25, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – People seldom associate the bowling alley with the abortion alley, but an annual “bowling for abortion” event has raised more than $400,000 to fund abortions across the country. The National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon describes itself as “a nationwide series of local events that allow community members (you!) to captain your own bowling team, participate in a kickass national event– and raise money to help women and girls pay for abortions they couldn’t otherwise afford.” In addition offering partial funding for abortions, the proceeds “buy bus or plane tickets, and...

    An untold story today following yesterday’s Pennsylvania primaries is what a bad, bad night it was for Planned Parenthood.In Pennsylvania’s 134th House district, they spent an eye-popping $100,000 on a TV ad campaign trying to sink the candidacy of Republican Ryan Mackenzie by linking him to ultrasound legislation that was before the legislature.As Politico noted, this was seen as a trial-balloon of sorts: Most state legislative races and ad campaigns don’t necessarily have any larger resonance, but Democrats have been working to make the ultrasound bill the kind of liability for Republicans in Pennsylvania that a related proposal became for...

    Once, at a smart wedding in Northamptonshire when I was about 30, someone handed me a newborn baby and my skin broke out in hot hives. In Brazil, I met a ten-year-old street kid. I fed him, let him sleep and shower in my hotel room, bought him clothes, and felt an overwhelming desire to protect and nurture him. I had never before felt such a forceful maternal instinct. These events were profoundly physical reactions, both shocking to me. Just around the time of my trip to Brazil, the ghost of my never-born came back to haunt me. I began...

    In a new interview, Miss Delaware, Maria Cahill, who is a pro-life advocate, talks about how she was instructed to not mention anything about her pro-life views during the pageant. Maria is the second oldest of seven children, and has always been passionate about the pro-life movement: “It came from growing up in a household where the value of life was respected no matter what the case. I became even more involved when I met women that were contemplating abortion. Seeing the pain in their eyes and hearing them talk about the fact that they believed that there was no...
