    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.

  • ACLU, PETA Member Writes Pro-Life Book for Liberals

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Catholic PRWire Should Liberals, Democrats, and the Left be pro-life? A member of the ACLU and PETA believes they should, and has written a book explaining why liberals should oppose abortion. In The Liberal Case Against Abortion, writer and activist, Vasu Murti presents formidable arguments why it the prevailing philosophy of the liberal movement demands opposition of abortion. The Liberal Case Against Abortion is unlike any other pro-life book, as it was written by a liberal to help convince others that share his beliefs to defy the political stereotype and reconsider the movement's position regarding the rights...

  • Pro-choice advocates need new approach

    Miami Herald ^ | August 19, 2005 | JOAN VENNOCHI
    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,...

    Antiabortion Effort in Europe, With U.S. Money, Widens Its Conservative Agenda By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL Published: August 14, 2005 WARSAW - For most of July, pedestrians in Lodz found themselves face to face with 14 grisly billboards pairing images of aborted fetuses with photographs of blood-spattered bodies - victims of genocide in Srebrenica and Rwanda, or toddlers killed in the Oklahoma City bombing. 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...

    Shocking anti-abortion exhibition 14 giant anti-abortion billboards have been put up in the city centre of Lodz in central Poland. 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...

    The case of Terri Schiavo has been riveting public opinion for some time now. However, recent events have forced the issue into the foreground. Terri’s time may be running out. If her husband, Michael, has things his way, Terri’s feeding tube will be wrenched from her on Friday, February 25 at 5:00 pm, resulting in her starvation and death. Right now, Terri’s parents are praying and fighting in court to keep her alive. The American TFP is part of a groundswell of reaction and is petitioning Gov. Jeb Bush and others to intervene. Catholic teaching is very clear on the...

    Two days ago, marking the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Hillary Clinton gave a speech outlining her views on abortion, contraception, and abstinence. "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.
  • Vandals Destroy Anti-Abortion Exhibit

    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...

    The Washington Post ^ | January 24, 2005 | Michael A. Fletcher
    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...
  • High Court Defers on 'Choose Life' Plates

    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...

    HOLLIS, MAINE - On a winding country road in the middle of nowhere, a building that once housed an antique shop now holds groups of women working out. Curves, a no-frills fitness club for women, can be found in the oddest places. Targeting women in small-town America is part of the company's business strategy — and it's working. Curves has grown to more than 8,400 franchises in all 50 states and 28 countries, making it by far the world's No. 1 fitness center in terms of number of clubs. One in every four fitness clubs in the United States is...

    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...

    WASHINGTON - Anti-abortion conservatives on Tuesday protested the possible elevation of Sen. Arlen Specter (news, bio, voting record) to Senate Judiciary Committee (news - web sites) chairman just as the Pennsylvania senator was trying to convince his Republican colleagues that he would be a strong advocate for President Bush (news - web sites)'s judicial nominees. More than a dozen protesters gathered outside a Senate office building where Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., keeps his offices, carrying signs saying "Bork Specter", "Sen. Frist: Stop Judicial Activism" and "Senator Frist: Listen to We the People." Robert Bork was a conservative jurist...
