    State House legislators were debating the budget written by Republican leaders. One provision diverted funding for family planning from private providers to local public health departments. Democrats claimed it was an attempt to block any more state funds from going to Planned Parenthood. An amendment was offered by Democrats to take that provision out of the budget. Representative Jennifer Weiss (D-Wake) called it a continuation of the the Republicans’ “war on women.” That brought an angry rebuff from Rep. John Blust (R-Guilford):

    ( - President Barack Obama on Tuesday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom—which he described as “the highest civilian honor this country can bestow"--on retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who wrote a Supreme Court opinion arguing that a woman was exercising her right to "liberty" when she hired a doctor to kill her child through the procedure known as partial-birth abortion. "That holding--that the word 'liberty' in the Fourteenth Amendment includes a woman’s right to make this difficult and extremely personal decision--makes it impossible for me to understand how a State has any legitimate interest in requiring a...

    Anti-abortion groups turn 'war on women' charge against DemocratsBy Elise Viebeck - 05/30/12 04:50 PM ET Groups opposed to abortion rights are turning charges of a GOP "war on women" against Democrats who are opposed to legislation meant to ban sex-selective abortions. Democrats hoping to grow a gender gap among female voters tilted toward their party have repeatedly hammered Republicans for engaging in a war on women over issues such as contraception rights. Now opponents of abortion rights are using the phrase ahead of a House vote Thursday imposing fines or imprisonment on doctors who perform abortions they know are...

    BBC Radio Four led on the Syrian massacre this morning describing it in graphic terms as the ‘deliberate mass killing of children’ who ’were murdered one by one’. The story was also one of the top three on the BBC website earlier today along with the account of six children dying in a house fire in the north of England. These would have been the top two reports had it not been for Mitt Romney gaining the Republican nomination for the US presidential elections yesterday. There are few things more gut-wrenching than the death of children but these two stories...
  • The Longer Someone Stayed in School, the Likelier They’ll Be ‘Pro-Choice,’ Says Gallup Data

    ( - The longer Americans stay in school, the more likely they are to say they are “pro-choice” on abortion, according to newly released data from the Gallup poll. Nonetheless, a majority of American college graduates who did not attend graduate school, as well a majority of those who have no better than a high school diploma, say they are pro-life. In a poll of 1,024 Americans age 18 and older, conducted May 3-6, Gallup asked: “With respect to the abortion issue, would you consider yourself to be pro-choice or pro-life?” Only 33 percent of Americans with a high school...

    In a surprise move, House Republicans announced this past Friday they would call for a vote on a federal ban against sex-selective abortion, aka the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, H.R. 3541*, tomorrow, May 30. PRENDA will be considered under “suspension of the rules,” meaning no amendments can be added. The bill must be voted on as is, straight up or down, and a two-thirds majority will be needed to pass it.

    Can a serial killer be an authentic Christian? Willie Parker thinks he can. He’s a Washington, D.C. abortion doctor. In a Q-and-A published by the Newark Star-Ledger this past Sunday, the Lord’s Day, Parker offered a decidedly twisted explanation of his conversion from a pro-life obstetrician to a pro-death abortionist. “In listening to a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King,” said Parker, “I came to a deeper understanding of my spirituality, which places a higher value on compassion.” The abortion doctor remembers that King’s sermon was drawn from the parable of the Good Samaritan. What he took away from the...

She’s also the bane of the pro-death crowd that wants abortion on demand—so much so that they’ve hit her, called her everything from a “b****” to a “c***” and more. The left-wing website Urban Dictionary defines her with a mixture of obscenities and labels her a “mockery of...

    Geraldine Ferraro, the 1984 candidate for the vice presidency whose position on abortion repeatedly put her at odds with New York’s late John Cardinal O’Connor, will soon be memorialized at Fordham Law School, according to a report in Fordham magazine. Ferraro’s husband, John Zaccaro Sr., and their son, John Zaccaro Jr., who are pictured in the magazine, recently made a “leadership gift” to Fordham in honor the late Queens congresswoman who rose to national prominence. Ferraro died of multiple myeloma in 2011. The gift, whose amount is not disclosed in the article, reportedly will go to support a new Law...

    The Obama campaign has released a new ad suggesting that little girls will never be able to live full lives unless the government subsidizes their birth control. The YouTube video titled “Letters to the President: The Dreams of Our Daughters” features a mother talking about her two young daughters, six-year-old Daisy and nine-year-old Caroline, in a letter to President Obama. She thanks him for the HHS mandate, which requires all religious institutions and other businesses to include free coverage for birth control, sterilization and abortifacient drugs even if it violates their deeply held religious beliefs. While no overt mention of...

    EL AVIV, ISRAEL, May 29, 2012, ( – Israelis born with birth defects can no longer sue their doctors because they were not aborted; now their parents have to wish their disabled children had never been born instead. That’s the ruling of the Israeli Supreme Court, which voted to end the filing of “wrongful life” lawsuits but allow limited “wrongful birth” lawsuits. Monday’s decision comes in the face skyrocketing “wrongful life” lawsuits, which have quadrupled in the last ten years, with 186 suits filed last year alone. An increasing number of Israelis have sued, saying had their disabilities been detected...

    ast week a former abortionist, who admits to having committed around 1200 abortions, appeared before a U.S. House subcommittee. The hearing was on the so-called Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks in D.C., based upon the fact that unborn babies can experience pain at that stage of pregnancy. Dr. Anthony Levatino, who has since turned his life around and is pro-life, was speaking in favor of the ban. And his testimony is perhaps the most brutal explanation you will ever hear for why abortion is evil - plain and simple. (Read his testimony below,...

    House to vote on bill penalizing abortion based on sex of childBy Pete Kasperowicz - 05/29/12 09:25 AM ET The House will vote this week on legislation imposing criminal penalties on anyone performing an abortion based on the sex of the child, but the measure runs the risk of failing on the floor because of how the GOP is calling it up. Republican leaders have scheduled a vote on H.R. 3541, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), under a suspension of House rules, which will require a two-thirds majority vote for passage. Suspension votes are usually reserved for non-controversial bills, but...

The article concludes by stating: “Legal induced abortion is markedly safer than childbirth. The risk of death associated with childbirth is approximately 14 times higher than that with abortion. Similarly, the overall morbidity associated with childbirth exceeds that with abortion.” Is this the truth? NIFLA doesn’t believe so and recommends that Pregnancy Resource...

    Perhaps most Americans have read about the discriminatory sex-selection abortions taking place in countries like China and North Korea. But how many realize the practice is morally acceptable– and even encouraged – in the United States of America? The investigative pro-life group Live Action, which has released videos exposing the abuses at the Planned Parenthood abortion business across the country, has released a new video today showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, Texas encouraging a woman to get a sex-selection abortion. The video shows a Planned Parenthood staffer encouraging the woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she...
