    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump quickly walked back a statement he made earlier Wednesday that if abortion were illegal in the United States, then women who have the procedure should be punished - saying later that only those who performed the procedure should be punished. “If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman,” Trump said in a written...

    Charles Cooke calls this an ideological Turing test, i.e. a question whose answer reveals how plausible it is that Trump really is who he claims to be. The standard answer from nearly all serious pro-lifers is that it’s the abortionist, not his patient, who should be sanctioned if and when abortion is banned. The March of Life explains why:

    LifesiteNews.com reports on a risible claim about Jesus made by Amy Hagstrom Miller. Miller runs a chain of abortion clinics in Texas and is a key antagonist in the challenge to a Texas law regulating abortion clinics now before the Supreme Court. In an interview at AlterNet Miller contends: I was raised in a liberal Christian tradition, and I come to the work because of that background, not in spite of it. The Jesus that I was taught about would be holding the hands of women inside the clinic; he wouldn’t be screaming at them. Acting on Christian principles is...

    Phillipsburg, New Jersey — Operation Rescue has reason to believe that Steven Chase Brigham may be slipping into some of his American Women’s Services abortion businesses to conduct illegal abortions. Brigham’s New Jersey medical license was revoked in October 2014, after he was caught running an illegal bi-state late-term abortion scheme that nearly killed one young woman. He holds no active medical license in any state and it is illegal for him to conduct abortions or engage in any other medical practice. Operation Rescue is asking the public for help in documenting this suspected illegal activity that could be placing...

    Last year, Live Action News contributor Calvin Freiburger wrote about Naresh Patel, an Oklahoma abortionist with a checkered past. In 1992, he was caught burning the bodies of aborted babies in a field, causing outrage. However, he was never charged with a crime… until he got caught in a vicious RU-486 scam. Patel pled guilty last October to lying to women about being pregnant so he could get their money. Now, he will never be able to practice medicine again and is a convicted felon. Authorities were originally tipped off when he performed an abortion on a woman who was...

    Lately, abortion advocates have been adopting pro-life terms to describe themselves: human rights advocates, defenders of the vulnerable, ministers and even pro-life. Perhaps they are borrowing the terms because they sound better than the truth about their position. The latest comes from an interview with a young Texas abortion doctor who said he wants to be a voice for the “voiceless.” Bhavik Kumar, who works at the Whole Women’s Health abortion clinics in San Antonio and Fort Worth, talked with the liberal Texas Observer about his work and his opposition to the pro-life measures being implemented in Texas.

    Pro-choice doesn’t mean “anti-life,” but “improves life,” according to one abortionist amplified by The Guardian. That is, if you don’t count the unborn baby’s life. The Guardian recently published a piece by an anonymous abortionist arguing that, “Being an abortion doctor has taught me a lot about life.” In it, the female “doctor” wrote that her work makes her feel “elated” – work that includes removing a 23-week-old unborn baby “part by part” and searching for the “jelly-fish-like gestation sac” surrounding a five-week-old.

    Dr. William Rashbaum, now deceased, was profiled in a 2003 article. At the time the article was written, he had performed over 21,000 late-term abortions. The article says of Raushbaum: TRAINED IN an era when doctors were considered gods, Rashbaum is gruff, confrontational, and downright abrasive. He flaunts medical conventions at will, rankling nurses and orderlies, if it serves his needs. When the orderlies take too long preparing his operating room between procedures, he goes in and embarrasses them into efficiency by helping to clean up. He boasts, “They turn my room over much faster than any other room.” First-...

    Dr. Philip Ney, who works with abortion providers who have left the business has this to say: “Some make it, some don’t. The ones who don’t sort of implode. They may revert to drinking, trying to struggle with their anger and guilt, hiding out in a series of rationalizations. They have to deal with all sorts of problems: guilt, shame, anger. They feel they’ve been badly used by their colleagues, doing the dirty work for other doctors. These people also feel they are doing a job for society — that other people are making them do it. They feel used....

    This doctor writes, after observing her first second trimester procedure at 21 weeks: Seeing an arm being pulled through the vaginal canal was shocking. One of the nurses in the room escorted me out when the colour left my face… Not only was it a visceral shock; this was something I had to think deeply about… Confronting a 21-week fetus is very different. It… cannot feel pain or think or have any sense of being, but the reality is, this cannot be called ‘tissue’. It was not something I could be comfortable with. She decided to do only earlier abortions,...

    Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists. The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the piece includes this startling infographic from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute displaying the radical pro-life shift in opinion as evidenced by legislative restrictions on abortion. For The Guardian and for abortionists like Boyd America’s lack of...

    A Michigan abortion practitioner who botched an abortion on a woman in her second trimester and left her decapitated unborn baby inside her has had his medical license suspended. Robert Alexander’s abortion clinic was shut down in December 2013 by the city of Muskegon, Michigan after unsafe and unsanitary conditions were found. But that wasn’t the only issue. “Dr. Alexander perforated the woman’s uterus so badly that it was hanging on by two blood vessels,” another physician said in testimony about what happened in the late-term abortion. “The decapitated head of a fetus was in the woman’s abdomen and the...

    As is often the case, because the amount of information on the web is virtually limitless, you run across the response to something that had run previously you hadn’t seen. That happened to me today when The Oklahoman ran a letter-to-the-editor responding to its editorial, “When the issue is abortion, plain English discouraged.” The letter (boxing the editorial board’s ears) comes from “Julie Burkhart, Wichita, Kan.” Her allegiance is not noted. For the record, Burkhart (below right) has opened an abortion business (manned by “circuit-rider” abortionists) at the location of the late George Tiller’s infamous abortion clinic. Her response requires...

    Men and women who are considering providing abortions as a career must overcome their natural revulsion to witnessing violence. They must silence their consciences and prepare themselves to participate in the destruction of human life on a daily basis. If they cannot do this, they will not be able to perform abortions. Here are quotes from four people – two medical students, a doctor, and a would-be Planned Parenthood director, going through this process. 1.) A doctor who was trying to decide whether or not to perform abortions witnessed a second trimester procedure and described what she saw: Seeing an...

    The state’s physician disciplinary board tonight revoked the license of Steven C. Brigham, a controversial doctor accused of skirting state rules by starting the process of late-term abortions with five women in his South Jersey office, and ordering them to drive to his Maryland clinic where the procedure was finished.Finding several counts of gross negligence, deception and official misconduct against him, the state Board of Medical Examiners also ordered Brigham to pay $140,000 in penalties. At a future hearing, the board will decide how much of the state's court costs he will be ordered to pay; the tab is expected...

    Abortionist Lisa Harris speaks about performing an abortion while she was pregnant, and feeling her own baby Just as she was pulling the leg off of the baby she was aborting.

    Despite a rousing speech by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who indicated that he would soon open an office in the state in pursuit of his presidential ambitions, California's Republican Party convention in Los Angeles, "Reclaim California," sounded a note of division, with three prominent Republicans declining to support the party's candidate for governor, amidst growing concern about the party's future as a statewide political institution. Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R-Twin Peaks), who lost to former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari in the primary election after being outspent in the closing weeks, declined to endorse Kashkari when asked by the Sacramento Bee,...

    Abortionist Steven Chase Brigham was in a New Jersey court on Friday seeking to persuade a judge to allow him to keep his last remaining medical license, which is currently under suspension after the discovery of his secret illegal bi-state late-term abortion scheme in 2010. Brigham’s attorney, Joseph Gorrell, asked Administrative Law Judge Jeff Masin to consider “good faith” motivations for Brigham’s actions that nearly cost at least one young patient her life. corinna-and-celeste-21b“’Good faith’ and ‘Brigham’ are two terms that don’t belong in the same sentence.
