    KITTANNING - Borough Police Chief Ed Cassesse said his department received more than a dozen calls within five minutes regarding several box-van trucks that were driving through city streets with graphic anti-abortion posters on their sides. According to Kathy Knepshield, a staff member of the Armstrong County YMCA, several of the trucks rolled past the YMCA on North Water Street around noon and one of the drivers was allegedly taking photos of children in an outdoor day camp. Knepshield said the posters, bearing images of an aborted fetus, upset many of the children in the camp. "The first time a...
  • Blanco says she'll sign abortion bill

    Blanco says she'll sign abortion bill Gov. Kathleen Blanco said Thursday that she'll sign a near-total ban on abortion - without exceptions for rape or incest victims - that is nearing final legislative passage. The Louisiana House and Senate have approved the measure by Sen. Ben Nevers, D-Bogalusa, but it awaits one final approval from the Senate of House changes before it reaches Blanco's desk. It only would allow abortion in cases where the woman's life is in danger or when childbirth would permanently harm her health.

    When a rap singer is urging a young woman ''to make the right decision and don't go through with this knife incision,'' America's abortion wars are in a different psychological place. Clearly, NARAL Pro-Choice America needs to figure out how to fight on the new battlefield. Hit by critics on the right and left, the pro-abortion rights advocacy group pulled an ad that falsely sought to link Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr. to abortion clinic bombings. Why anyone connected with NARAL ever believed the ad was a good idea is difficult to understand. The tone was all wrong,...

Placed by a Polish antiabortion group, the traveling exhibition, which moved on to Lublin, exemplifies an aggressive, well-financed and growing conservative movement across Europe that opposes not only abortion but often other things related to sex, like sex...

All of them abound in drastic scenes, and they are displayed right next to war images. The organizers think it’s a good way to appeal to people’s conscience. The main street in the city of £odz visited by thousands of people every day, now hosts now an antiabortion exhibition abounding in pictures portraying death next to photos of aborted foetuses. And so, a photo of massacred bodies in the former Yugoslavia is placed next to a picture of an 8-week...

"Clinton Seeking Shared Ground Over Abortions," said the front page of the New York Times. "Hillary in the middle on values issues," agreed the Washington Times. But Clinton isn't trying to end the abortion war. She's repositioning her party to win it.

    An anti-abortion group on LSU's campus is up in arms after an exhibit was vandalized. Last Saturday the group "Students For Life" held a vigil to recognize the historic abortion ruling Roe Versus Wade. Monday morning when they got to LSU's Parade Grounds some members found the exhibit trashed. LSU police now have a complaint against whoever vandalized 3,044 little white crosses planted at the parade grounds. Each cross symbolized what anti abortion activists say is the number of unborn children killed each day by legal abortions in the United States. Some time between Saturday and Monday morning those symbols...

    President Bush today told thousands of anti-abortion marchers that his administration is making progress toward fostering a "culture of life" by enacting measures that limit abortion and stem-cell research while expanding the legal definition of life. Speaking by telephone as the protesters gathered in the biting cold for their annual anti-abortion march from the Ellipse to the Supreme Court, Bush said that while outlawing abortion remains a distant goal, it is one that seems to be moving into view. "The America of our dreams, where every child is welcomed in law -- in life, and protected in law may still...

    The Supreme Court declined to consider Monday whether South Carolina's anti-abortion license plates are unconstitutional, a free-speech question that could have resulted in the elimination of similar programs in a dozen states. Without comment, justices rejected a challenge to a lower court ruling that said the plates, which bear the slogan "Choose Life," violate the First Amendment because abortion rights supporters weren't given a similar forum to express their beliefs. Under the program begun in 2001, South Carolina drivers may pay a $70 fee to purchase the anti-abortion plates, with the revenue going toward local crisis pregnancy programs. Specialty plates...

    OpinionJournal (WSJ Online) ^ | 11/16/2004 | JAMES TARANTO
    We're not sure we agree. It's doubtless true that if Roe is overturned, some women seeking abortions would travel to states where it's legal, as they did in the olden days before 1973. But it's hard to imagine that people would vote with their fetus to such a degree that they'd decide where to live in the hope of aborting future pregnancies.Still, what if they do? In the short term, it would increase the population of states like Connecticut, while making "red" states even redder. But in the long run it'd be hard to sustain a culture that defines itself...

    Last week President Bush signed into law the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (a.k.a. "Laci and Conner's Law"). The law, which makes harming a fetus a separate offense in a federal crime against a pregnant woman, barely made it through the Senate and raised the ire of many a liberal. They claimed that this law will strip women of their collective "right" to abortion if not overturned. Of course, these arguments are the type we've heard from the pro-abortion Left for years -- and will for years to come. On Monday, the California Supreme Court ruled that a perpetrator can...

It shows, on the left side, a hand digging up a seed and on the right side, a hand planting a seed. Then we see the left side remain as a barren hole in the ground, while on the right, a baby grows into a toddler and then...

I stated that there were many different groups involved in the fight against abortion, including feminists. I was challenged by several different people, however, who simply could not fathom the mainstream feminist movement as having any factions that...

    In the case of abortion on demand, there are three "exceptions to the rule" that most pro-life politicians fall back on: rape, incest, and endangering the life of the mother. The last one is a fairly reasonable assumption: If the choice has to be made between the life of the mother and the life of an unborn child - and if there are no other options - then, in that case, abortion can be justified. However, the other two are not so easy to define. Rape and incest are unarguably two horrible crimes; and pregnancy does not often occur from...

    PALO ALTO (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Fifteen percent of the 18 million people living with depression experience symptoms such as paranoia and hallucinations. This type of depression, called psychotic depression, is hard to treat with standard medication. Now a controversial treatment is changing the lives of people with this illness. Just a few months ago, this scene was unthinkable for Isabel Camarillo. "I didn't want to live at all. I was always thinking of how to kill myself," she tells Ivanhoe. Camarillo started hearing voices as a teenager. "It was like they were controlling my life," she says. They didn't go...

    In the circumstance of abortion, the decision is made for or against by one person: the mother of the child (forgive me, the fetus). When a woman or finds out that she is pregnant, and decides to have an abortion, she is by no means beholden by the standards of the pro-choice crowd to seek advice on the subject or to inform anyone of her decision. As a matter of fact, she is encouraged not to seek counseling, unless it is from a Planned Parenthood sanctioned clinic, and she is most certainly not encouraged to tell her parents or the...

    Chicago Sun-Times Score 2 for pro-life forces July 27, 2002 BY THOMAS ROESER Two significant pro-life achievements were attained recently: one was front-page news, the other hardly noticed. Let's take the hardly noticed measure first. A Chicago area nurse won a national victory in her battle against live-birth abortion last week when the U.S. Senate, without dissent or debate, passed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and sent the measure on to President Bush for his signature. Jill Stanek, a nurse from suburban Mokena, brought the issue to Congress two years ago with the stunningly disturbing news that babies surviving...

    Anti-Abortion Group Unfurls Air Campaign Using plane banners to provoke By Thai Jones STAFF WRITER July 11, 2002 Mickey Potter was enjoying her Fourth of July on the beach at Davis Park on Fire Island when she looked up and saw an airplane towing a 30- by 100-foot banner depicting graphic images of two aborted fetuses and the words, "10 WEEK ABORTION." Potter said she was disgusted. "I don't think I'd want my child to be looking up and seeing it, but as an adult I was still offended," said Potter, 40, a former advertising worker from Bohemia. Her reaction...
  • Why would the conservative right form a coalition with terrorists?

    This is rather disturbing. We are supposedly at war with those who would take away our freedoms, yet the religious right has formed a coalition with the Islamists to lobby the UN. They have been helped along by the Bush Administration. I fully support the war on terrorism, but I'd like an explanation as to why the religious right is so unpatriotic as to form an unholy alliance with the Islamists.
