    An abortion battle could be brewing in Albany, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to propose a major change to abortion laws in New York State. CBS 2 has learned that Cuomo will introduce a bill on Tuesday that would allow abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy to protect a woman’s health. The bill would fall in line with federal law. Currently, New York State only allows late-term abortions if a woman’s life is at risk. Planned Parenthood outlined a 2009 bill with reportedly similar goals. The 2009 Reproductive Health Act would “guarantee a woman can make her own personal, private...

    An abortionist who is now facing a criminal investigation would regularly allow late-term babies to be born alive, then twist their heads off with his bare hands, according to a videotaped interview conducted by three of his employees. “Most of the time the fetus [sic] would come all the way out before he either cut the spinal cord or introduced one of the instruments into the soft-spot of the fetus in order to kill the fetus,” said Deborah Edge, one of the employees. “Either that or twisting the head off the neck with his own bare hands.” “Most of the...

    Thanks to conservative new media, the Kermit Gosnell trial is finally part of the national dialog. But before the mainstream press got around to doing their job, ten congressmen took to the floor of the House to protest the lack of media attention being paid to the horrifying story. One such congressman, Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), contrasted the abortionist's trial to another ongoing narrative that the media covers obsessively: gun control. “If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,” said Smith, a...

Appearing at a conference of liberal bloggers in New York City, Obama pledged “not to give any ground” when it comes to the issue of abortion. “Millions of young women have coverage through their parents’ plans. They are beginning to gain access to contraception at no additional cost.

    The taxpayer funded abortion factory Planned Parenthood making millions in profits by preying on women, specifically minorities and teenagers, seems to think a woman seeing her baby before making the ultimate decision to end her pregnancy is an "abhorrent" standard. The classification comes after a federal appeals court upheld a law that requires doctors to give women considering an abortion an ultrasound and full information before performing the procedure. Writing for the court, Chief Judge Edith Jones was frank about the other side’s failure “to demonstrate constitutional flaws with the law,” which requires women to have a sonogram 24 hours...

    A woman in Australia who was pregnant with twins decided to have one of her babies aborted after doctors discovered that he had a life-threatening congenital heart defect. The seriously disturbing part? The doctors aborted the wrong fetus, terminating a perfectly healthy child. After doctors realized the "blunder," the woman, who was 32 weeks pregnant, had to undergo an emergency cesarean to deliver the sick fetus, where it was later terminated. The Royal Women's Hospital confirmed the incident and referred to it as a "terrible tragedy." Um, yeah ... one could say that. I honestly really don't even know what...

Earlier this summer the state’s Executive Council voted to redirect Planned Parenthood’s $1.8 million share of Medicaid funding to clinics that do not perform abortions. Immediately after, however, the Obama administration threatened to deprive all of New Hampshire’s Medicaid facilities of federal funding unless the Executive Council reversed its decision. Kansas and Indiana have received similar threats this year. Now the Obama administration says it has bypassed the Executive Council and awarded...

    Many key cultural and political issues these days are debated and at least temporarily-settled within the marble halls of the Supreme Court. Protesters advocating various points of view on a variety of topics have made the plaza in front of temple-like ediface their battleground. The nomination of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court itself is no different. Since I work in DC, within walking distance of the Supreme Court, I decided to walk there to see what was taking place on the steps in front of the building. I arrived there shortly before 4 pm, when the National Organizaton for...

  • Church can never accept abortion - Pope's book

    Wasthington Post ^ | 6/21/05 | By Philip Pullella
    Pope Benedict, in his first book published since his election, says the Catholic Church can never accept laws allowing abortion because there is no such thing as "small murders." In one section of the book, the Pope asks rhetorically why the Church should not accept that abortion is legal in many countries. "Why don't we resign ourselves to the fact that we lost that battle and dedicate our energies instead to projects where we can find greater social consensus?" he writes. Because this, he says, would be a superficial and hypocritical solution. "Recognizing the sacred nature of human life and...

    No matter how the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, the National Organization of Women, the National Abortion Reproductive Rights Action League or any of the other alphabet groups frame their argument, abortion is murder – abortion is evil. It is murder because it is the taking of an innocent life. It is evil precisely because it is the taking of innocent life. It is an abhorrent practice commissioned upon those who have either bought into a lie or are devoid of understanding. In recent weeks, abortions involving both of the aforementioned have been played out with little or no...
  • Campaign afoot for buffers at clinics (FREEP THIS POLL)

    WEST PALM BEACH — No vote has been scheduled on a proposed buffer around West Palm Beach medical clinics. No public hearing has been held. No matter: An organized pro-buffer letter-writing campaign already has begun to flood City Commission President Kimberly Mitchell's mailbox. At issue is whether keeping protesters away from clinics performing abortions, as well as their patients and workers, will promote safety and, perhaps, damp accusations and counter-accusations of harassment. The proposal comes from the Presidential Women's Center, which asked the city in August to consider a 30-foot buffer. Clinic owner Mona Reis and Bob Van Reeth, assistant...

    Surprised by Truth ^ | Patrick Madrid
    Patrick Madrid, a Catholic apologist does an excellent job using scripture to explain why ALL Christians are called to vote in defense of life—and why it IS INDEED a sin to vote for pro-abortion politicians. I believe our Protestant brethren will agree with this presentation as well. The video file is 10 Megs and 10 minutes long. IMO—it is excellent and I recommend it be forwarded to as many as possible, especially fence sitters.

    by Steven Ertelt LifeNews.com Editor July 22, 2004 Prince George, Canada (LifeNews.com) -- A Canadian woman who had an abortion and found out she was still pregnant three months later has been awarded compensation in a medical malpractice case. The woman, now 37, gave birth to the baby in 1997, according to a CBC report, and has been raising the child ever since. In 1996, she discovered she was pregnant, despite using birth control. Holding low-paying jobs and barely able to make ends meet for herself and her two children, she decided to have an abortion. After a referral from...

    Becker County investigator John Sieling says the 29-year-old mother, from Perham, handed the bucket with a child in it to a stranger early Sunday morning and then walked away. Sieling says authorities were called to the festival grounds Sunday morning at three. A woman had been watching the baby for about three hours since the mother had given her the pail. Sieling says county chaplains found the mother a few hours later and told her authorities had her child. The case will be turned over to the Otter Tail County Attorney's office for a review of possible charges. The baby...

    Leading doctors today called for a major overhaul to avoid babies being born alive after abortions. Pregnancy expert Professor Stuart Campbell has demanded rules should be tightened after it was revealed that at least nine babies are known to have survived terminations in recent years. He said injections that were supposed to end their lives in the womb failed to do so - and he called for stricter regulations to be enforced on the methods of abortion. Professor Campbell said that all abortions carried out after 18 weeks of pregnancy should include an injection, followed by drugs, to induce labour...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry has started running television ads blasting President Bush for his pro-life position -- specifically his nomination of pro-life judges to various federal courts. The ads are timed to coincide with the national pro-abortion march on Saturday. "The Supreme Court is just one vote away from outlawing a woman's right to choose. George Bush will appoint anti-choice, anti-privacy justices. But you can stop him. Help elect John Kerry and join the fight to protect our right to choose," the ad says. "I promise to take the fight to George Bush every...
  • Holiday for Abortionists—Seriously

    This Wednesday, March 10th, is a holiday with which you may not be familiar, but should be: the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers. The very fact that there exists such a “holiday”—created in 1996 and co-sponsored by more than twenty major groups, including Planned Parenthood and National Organization for Women (NOW)—says everything you need to know about the pro-abortion movement today. Most ordinary Americans who identify themselves as “pro-choice” would be disgusted that abortion providers are being hailed as heroes. Even to people who support keeping the procedure legal, abortion is not something to be glorified. The National...
