  • Bill signed allowing surprise inspections of Arizona abortion clinics

    Arizona Governor Jan Brewer on Tuesday signed into a law a bill allowing state health authorities to conduct surprise inspections of abortion clinics without first obtaining a warrant, handing another victory to abortion foes. The Republican-backed bill, which gained final legislative approval from the state Senate last week, removes a provision from state law requiring a judge to approve any spot inspections conducted at the nine clinics in Arizona licensed to perform abortions. No other medical facilities in the state require such a warrant for unannounced inspections.

    “Just sit on the toilet. You don’t have to look at anything.” These are the words our undercover investigator – 27 weeks pregnant, with a big belly – heard on January 14, 2013. The setting was Southwestern Women’s Options, in the heart of the late-term abortion capital of the United States — Albuquerque, New Mexico. The investigator was seeking a late-term abortion – the sort only a few facilities, including Southwestern Women’s Options, will do. The counselor told her how the procedure is done: how the abortionist would stab her abdomen with a needle containing digoxin, a heart-stopping poison. How...

    So far, in 2013, 44 abortion clinics have closed. Due to new state laws and improved inspections, abortion clinics have been forced to close down in record numbers. 42 of those offered surgical abortions, while the other two offered chemical abortions. For Abby Johnson, it takes on a special meaning. When the Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas closed, it was the end of a long circle for Johnson, who once ran that abortion clinic before her conscience got the better of her and she left Planned Parenthood for Coalition for Life.

Ironically, it was thought that Femcare would be the only North Carolina abortion clinic to meet safety standards under the new law, but it seems it that thinking was grossly...

Rick Perry signed the state's new late-term abortion ban into law, Planned Parenthood has announced that they are closing three more clinics in the state, one of which performs abortions. In a press release, Planned Parenthood blamed the closures on funding cuts that Republican lawmakers passed in 2011. Those funding cuts have already led to the closure of numerous Planned Parenthood clinics across the state. However, one of the three clinics, the Bryan clinic, is also subject to the requirements of the new abortion law signed...

    Abortion rights advocates have long maintained that abortion clinics are safe and that their procedures are no more invasive or dangerous than dental surgery or colonoscopies. Virginia recently passed regulations requiring abortion clinics to have wider hallways and doorways, expanded parking and entrance awnings. Supporters said the ­changes ensure the safety of women undergoing abortions. Opponents said the measure was a veiled attempt to shutter them. “NOVA Women’s Healthcare provided medical services to thousands of women,” Yarmosky said. “It was the largest abortion provider, but thousands of women also relied on them for birth control and other health care, and...

Late last month, McDonnell signed into law permanent regulations that will now hold the state’s abortion facilities to the same health and safety standards as hospitals....

For over 25 years, Virginia abortion clinics have not been held to minimal health and safety standards. As a result, women who walk into these clinics are...

    Virginia Pro-Life groups and Virginia citizens are outraged with Planned Parenthood and their promiscuous behavior in light of hidden cameras catching employees on video aiding and abetting sex trafficking, underage abortion services to prostitutes and catering their abortion services to local strip joints such as Richmond's Paper Moon, a local strip bar. The pro-life group, Live Action, exposed multiple Planned Parenthood abortion mills in the sting, citing a common "playbook" or agenda for handling abortion paths for underage, illegal, or the sex trade business (prostitution). This comes on the heels the Pennsylvania abortion mill that killed seven infants and a...

    PHILADELPHIA — For years, state health officials missed some unsettling patterns at the three-story brick abortion clinic on Lancaster Avenue. It was always open late, way past the time the pizza place next door closed at midnight. The women who emerged from it — often poor blacks and Hispanics — appeared dazed and in pain, and sometimes left in ambulances. The doctor who ran the clinic, Kermit Gosnell, had been sued at least 15 times for malpractice. Two women died while under his care. But the dangerous practices went unnoticed, except by the women who experienced them. They were discovered...
  • Closure of Two More Abortion Clinics Continues National Trend

    11/27/2010 5:37:04 PM PST · by Coleus · 29 replies
    Two notorious abortion mills have closed or are scheduled to close, contributing to the national trend of clinic closures first documented by Operation Rescue last year in "Project Daniel 5:25."  In Yakima, Washington, the Cedar Women's Clinic, which was the first abortion clinic to open in that city 31 years ago, closed Monday due to a dramatic decrease in the demand for abortions. According to statistics kept by the state, the abortion rate for women ages 15 to 44 dropped from 18 per 1,000 in 2008 to 16.7 per 1,000 in 2009. One abortion clinic remains in Yakima.  In...

    Planned Parenthood—an organization that kills preborn babies, destroys the lives of mothers and, through its brand of sex education, helps form a twisted sense of sexuality among teens—has reached its long arm into our communities for far too many years. Aided by a government that supports it by giving it millions in tax dollars, Planned Parenthood will stop at nothing to pervert the lives of America’s youth. Many years ago, one man had a vision of how to stop Planned Parenthood’s encroachment of our society. When Stop Planned Parenthood International (STOPP) started in 1985, the man who had the brilliant...

    RALEIGH, North Carolina, June 23, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Raleigh abortuary that has seen constant prayer from pro-lifers with the popular 40 Days for Life campaign has ceased performing abortions.

The affiliate, Ann Rose, said that the last abortions would be conducted on Saturday, but she would not explain what other changes the “transition” would entail. The paper reports that the abortuary was generally thought to be for sale after its founder, pro-abortion activist Susan...

    I've reported previously on the massive pro-life protests and prayer vigils at a St. Paul, MN, Planned Parenthood abortion mill as well as PP's annual "Good Friday solidarity event." Well, PP of MN, ND, and SD is closing that mill and building a 46,000 sq. ft., 3-story mega-mill in an industrial park. Why now? According to StarTribune.com: [Sarah] Stoesz [president and CEO of PP in MN], said PP is preparing for a possible increase in demand because of the new federal health care bill, which will add millions of people to insurance rolls starting in 2014. Many will be the...

    Houston, Texas, January 18, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, national spiritual and political leaders joined a sign-waving crowd of what is being reported as "thousands" of pro-lifers in Houston today to rally against what they called a "prenatal racial genocide" perpetrated by Planned Parenthood through abortion. In April, Planned Parenthood purchased a six-story, 78,000-square-foot former bank building in Houston to turn into the nation's largest abortion mill. The building is situated in an 80% minority community area. The move sparked outrage from pro-lifers, who said that Planned Parenthood began as a eugenics organization designed to...

    (CNSNews.com) – A coalition of pro-life advocates and religious leaders plan to gather in Houston on Jan. 18 to oppose what is expected to be the largest abortion clinic in the country. Planned Parenthood is renovating a former bank, turning it into a 78,000 square foot facility that will include a surgical wing equipped to provide late-term abortions. “It’s an abortion super center,” Lou Engle, founder of the pro-life group The Call to Conscience, which is organizing the rally, told CNSNews.com Joining Engle at the “prayer march” will be Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Samuel Rodriguez,...
