  • MEGA-RICH AMERICANS ARE FUNDING THE ABORTION PUSH IN IRELAND. WHY?

    The Life Institute ^ | 8/25/2016 | Niamh Ui Bhriain
    Thanks to DCLeaks.com and the work of journalist Kevin Jones the truth is finally out there. George Soros, a U.S. billionaire and one of the richest people in the world, has been secretly pumping funds into the push to legalise abortion in Ireland. In a private memo, clearly never intended to be seen by the Irish people, Soros’ foundation takes aim at Irish laws protecting unborn babies, and commits to funding three groups who will work ‘collectively’ to legalise abortion – Amnesty Ireland, the Abortion Rights Campaign, and the IFPA. The revelations are hugely embarrassing for abortion campaigners. Under pressure...
  • Joy Reid Shuts Down Conservative Latino Who Brings up Hillary's Praise of Eugenicist Sanger

    On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, conservative Latino Alfonso Aguilar cited Hillary Clinton’s praise of the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. Hillary has said that she “admire[s] Margaret Sanger enormously.” Reid responded by saying Sanger was not a legitimate issue because she is a “dead person.” Even worse, when Aguilar tried to make that point that a majority of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood are on minority women, Reid shut Aguilar down, calling his statement “incredibly offensive. I think that smear of Planned Parenthood cannot go forward and we’re not going to continue with that line of...

    Claressa Shields made history in Rio as the first U.S. boxer to win back-to-back gold medals. But while the major media outlets praised her historic win, they forgot about her most important personal win. On Monday, the 21-year-old credited God for her success on Good Morning America after ABC anchor Amy Robach referenced her “difficult childhood.” How Shields’ past was difficult, Robach didn’t say. But it’s a story well worth telling. Shields grew up in Flint, Michigan with a father in jail and a mother with drug problems and male “acquaintances” who, Shields said, raped and sexually molested her. Her...

    Pro-abortion activists, hiding behind the (often undeserved) cloak of credibility provided by a peer-reviewed journal, made a concerted effort this week to mess with Texas. A recent study on increasing maternal mortality rates (MMR) in America made some blatantly dishonest claims about maternal deaths in the Lone Star state, concluding: “Adjusted maternal mortality rates for Texas show only a modest increase from 2000 to 2010, from a rate of 17.7 in 2000 to 18.6 in 2010. However, after 2010, the reported maternal mortality rate for Texas doubled within a 2-year period to levels not seen in other U.S. states.” Just....

    Indiana based abortion practitioner has lost his medical license for at least six months after being found guilty on multiple counts of breaking state abortion reporting and health and safety requirements. Ulrich Klopfer is also the abortion practitioner who failed to report the rape of two teenage girls to state officials. Early this morning the Indiana Medical Licensing Board found longtime abortion doctor Ulrich Klopfer guilty of five of nine charges brought against him. The Board took disciplinary action against Klopfer by suspending his medical license for a minimum of six months, issuing a fine and requiring certain training if...

    The Culture of Death has gained a strong foothold in America over the passivity of the dominant Christian population. It’s time to stand up and put an end to it. This book is a powerful weapon for the culture wars. “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants…” (Deut 30:19) This is a very simple guide for the Christian voter—don’t vote for the party and people who champion the Culture of...

    Metro Vancouver Christians are colliding over the coming crusade of televangelist Franklin Graham, who is known for criticizing homosexuals, Muslims and U.S. President Barack Obama. Saying that Graham is often “incendiary and intolerant,” some evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics are opposing his participation in the three-day Festival of Hope event at Rogers Arena in early March, 2017, that many of the city’s mega-churches are supporting . “Rev. Graham is a polarizing figure … His ungracious and bigoted remarks have the potential to generate serious negative impact on the Christian witness in Vancouver,” says a statement from five prominent evangelical and...

    Hillary Kieft grew worried when her daughter didn’t arrive from school on the bus as usual. After she called the school to find out what was wrong, a school nurse pulled into her driveway with the daughter (let’s call her “Kelly”) in tow. The nurse explained that she had taken Kelly for counseling after school, according to LifeNews.com, which reported on the Kieft story. But, in fact, the nurse took Kelly to have an abortion. In New Zealand—where the Kieft family lives—it is completely legal for a minor to have an abortion without her parents’ knowledge. Parents like Hillary Kieft...

    Today’s culture could accurately be called “confessional.” People share tell-all blog posts and videos spilling intimate details of their lives, opening up their innermost thoughts to the entire world. And while in some ways, this can be helpful or laudatory, in other ways, it’s deeply troubling. An example of why it’s troubling is the trend of special needs parents opening up about how they wish their child with a disability never existed. Some of them file lawsuits for “wrongful birth,” blaming doctors for not diagnosing their child with a disability prenatally so the parents could have had an abortion. Others...

If you don’t believe me, start tracking the various conferences and forums being offered in your diocese, drill down to look at the host organization, the speakers, and their topics. Better yet, attend one and publicly voice your pro-life preferences and see what happens.

For the most part if you are 34 years or younger you have no brothers or sisters. Neither does anybody else. Meaning no aunts, uncles or cousins... To make matters worse, restricting families to just one child placed a disproportionate value on baby boys, particularly in rural areas. Boys are stronger, boys can do more work. Of China’s 3+ decades of state-forced abortions or infanticide, the overwhelming majority...

    Filmmaker Tracy Droz Tragos hopes that her new documentary, “Abortion: Stories Women Tell,” will move people to compassion when they listen to women share the difficult circumstances that led them to choose abortion. Unfortunately, her film extends no compassion for unborn children. Tragos told Pop Sugar that she was troubled by all the new abortion restrictions in her home state of Missouri. She said she decided to base her new documentary in Missouri and feature the stories of women affected by abortion and the state laws. Tragos (pictured) never had an abortion herself, but she interviewed more than 40 women...

    Abortion is not an often-discussed issue in many religious services in America, but when it is, most clergy defend unborn babies’ right to life, a new survey found. The Pew Research Center released a new poll on Monday that examined how often Americans hear about political issues from the pulpit. Abortion was third on the list, with religious liberty and homosexuality ranking first and second. Other issues included immigration, the environment and poverty.

As someone who speaks, writes, and advocates incessantly on the abortion issue you'd think she would have given it more thought; but you would be wrong. Professor O'Neill, who is rabidly "pro-choice" (on abortion at least), is blithely unconcerned with when a developing fetus is actually a person deserving of protection from lethal violence. O'Neill sat for an interview at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia with Jason Rantz, a radio host from Seattle's KIRO.

The non-partisan campaign, called “My Vote, My Voice,” has the potential to reach a lot of people who don’t normally vote in presidential campaigns.

    Some of my Christian friends tell me they can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump because, when faced with a choice between “the lesser of two evils,” the morally right thing is to choose neither one. They recommend voting for a third-party or write-in candidate. As a professor who has taught Christian ethics for 39 years, I think their analysis is incorrect. Now that Trump has won the GOP nomination, I think voting for Trump is a morally good choice. American citizens need patience with each other in this difficult political season.

A recent joint event in Sweden named “Women, Faith and Human Rights,” was ostensibly aimed at proving there is no incompatibility between faith and human rights. A closer look reveals deep fault lines between religion as practiced by most of the world’s believers and human rights as interpreted...

Not a single Republican voted in favor of either bill. So last week, Rauner surprised some Republican legislators and angered conservative groups when he signed both Democrat-sponsored measures. One of them extends insurance coverage for nearly all contraceptives and the other requires physicians who refuse to perform abortions or other health care services for moral and...

A year after the release of the undercover videos, the ongoing nationwide investigation of Planned Parenthood by the House Select Investigative Panel makes clear that Planned Parenthood...

    Abortion is now the official state-preferred choice for Illinois women in unexpected pregnancies, after Gov. Bruce Rauner signed Senate Bill 1564 into law Friday afternoon. Rauner, a Republican, held veto power over the legislation—which Democrats pushed through on a strictly partly line vote and put on his desk May 31—but he went against the grain of his own party in approving the legislation. "We are extremely disappointed in Gov. Rauner for siding with pro-abortion Democrats by signing SB 1564 and expanding abortions in Illinois,” Emily Zender, executive director of Illinois Right to Life said in a press release. “This radical...

Seeing this despicable, cold, calculating, and evil woman at the podium defined the Democrat party as the source of the putrid smell spreading across our country. The DNC emanated the foul odor of America's moral decline. Richards is running a national dead-baby-body-parts chop shop. And yet, this vile woman had the audacity to deceptively portray herself as an advocate for women and Trump as anti-woman. After the release of numerous undercover videos exposing the horrors and illegality happening...

    In a moment of truly blinding irony, NARAL’s president called for Americans to elect Hillary Clinton as president so she could stand against bullies. The Democratic National Convention made history for women this week. No, I’m not referring to Hillary Clinton receiving the nomination, making her the first woman to be running for president for a major political party. I’m talking about Ilyse Houge, the president of NARAL. She shared with the nation that not only does she champion abortion rights, she has had an abortion for nonmedical reasons. Since Hogue missed a basic tenet of ethics, I will spell...

    PHILADELPHIA, PA—Rumors had been floating around the 2016 Democratic National Convention all week about a “special surprise speaker” set to address the crowd on its final day. That speaker turned out to be Kermit Gosnell, infamous abortion provider and barbaric serial killer of born-alive infants, who was beamed in to speak Thursday from the Huntingdon prison where he is currently serving life without the possibility of parole. After being introduced as “champion of women’s rights, martyr for the greater cause, and fearless liberator, Dr. Kermit Gosnell,” the audience erupted into a frenzied applause which lasted more than ten minutes. Planned...

    Actress Ashley Judd spoke during the Democratic National Convention this week about protecting the rights of sexual assault survivors like herself. Unfortunately, Judd also gave a passionate plea for legalized abortion on demand. The actress spoke during an event hosted by NARAL, a radical pro-abortion group that supports abortion, not just in the rare cases, but for any reason up until birth. Earlier in the week, NARAL president Ilyse Hogue proudly bragged about her abortion at the DNC as the crowd cheered. New York Magazine reports Judd told the NARAL “Men for Choice” crowd about how she became pregnant after...
  • Less Activism. More Factivism.

    Millennials are often praised for their willingness to become activists for a cause. It’s laudable that people choose action over apathy. But there are dangerous consequences when we act without facts.We need fewer activists, more factivists.However, in a soundbite world where few choose to savor the meatier substance of truth, it’s scary how ill-equipped many are with buzzwords and bumper sticker mantras. If only technology were advanced enough for us to have no excuse to be manipulated by the gatekeepers—mainstream media, public education, politicians and even some pastors. If only there were a device that were smart enough to be...
  • Pelosi says uneducated white men like Donald Trump because of ‘guns, gays and God.’ Is she right?

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | July 28, 2016 | Amber Phillips and Emily Guskin
    And I think that, so many times, white — non-college-education — educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose. --House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to Judy Woodruff in an interview Wednesday What Nancy Pelosi said isn't necessarily a new idea: the theory that white, working class men vote Republican because of social issues and -- from Democrats' perspective -- to the detriment of their economic interests. But it is worth taking a closer look...

    Reveling in the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down a Texas abortion law, a leading abortion rights activist on Monday cast the ongoing political battle as nothing short of a fight over "American values." Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, told a breakfast meeting of the Texas Democratic delegation that the "fight is not about abortion." Rather, she said, "this is a clash of fundamentally different ways of looking at the world." She then pointed to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and other top GOP leaders. "You have men like Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Rick Perry and...

    Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) praised the Democratic Party platform’s new language Tuesday that calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion, saying doing so will save money. […] Chu supported the EACH Woman Act last summer, which would have lifted the Hyde Amendment’s restrictions on federal funding for abortion. …

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) When talking about abortion, Democratic politicians and activists usually prefer to speak euphemistically: The dismemberment or lethal poisoning of a baby who hasn't been born yet is almost always referred to as "reproductive health care" or "a woman's choice." The group NARAL, once known as the National Abortion Rights Action League, went so far as to change its name to NARAL Pro-Choice America so its supporters and allies could avoid saying the a-word. When talking about abortion, Democratic politicians and activists usually prefer to speak euphemistically: The dismemberment or lethal poisoning of a baby who hasn't been born yet...

    Catholic Vote ^ | July 26, 2016 | JOHN WHITE
    Another election, another pro-abortion “Catholic” on the democrat ticket. Hillary Clinton has named Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia as her vice-presidential pick, making this the fourth consecutive election to see a Catholic nominated to one of the top two spots by the democrats.  Of course, like almost every other democrat who claims to be Catholic and aspires to any political office higher than deputy street cleaner, Kaine has removed his soul, slapped a “personally opposed” label on it, and sold it outright to Satan. Oh, that crosses the line does it?  How dare I judge someone’s soul? You know...

    In the America I grew up in, the “liberals” were content to use government coercion to confiscate people’s money so they could spend it on their panoply of social engineering and vote-buying projects. They got to compel people to “join” Social Security, subsidize National Public Radio, pay for legions of needless bureaucrats in offices not authorized under the Constitution, bail out political cronies who cried “We’re too big to fail!” and so on. That kind of “liberalism” was bad enough, but the disease has of late developed new and far more vicious strains. Those involve attacks on Americans for not...
