  • Jeb ‘Put Me Through Hell’ (Michael Schiavo)

    Politico ^ | January 29, 2015 | Michael Kruse
    CLEARWATER, Fla.—Sitting recently on his brick back patio here, Michael Schiavo called Jeb Bush a vindictive, untrustworthy coward. For years, the self-described “average Joe” felt harassed, targeted and tormented by the most important person in the state. “It was a living hell,” he said, “and I blame him.” Michael Schiavo was the husband of Terri Schiavo, the brain-dead woman from the Tampa Bay area who ended up at the center of one of the most contentious, drawn-out conflicts in the history of America’s culture wars. The fight over her death lasted almost a decade. It started as a private legal...
  • Abortion Activist: “Yes Babies in the Womb are Human Being, But So What”

    Life News ^ | 1/23/15 | Sarah Zagorski
    In 2013, pro-abortion writer, Mary Elizabeth Williams penned an article titled, “So What if Abortion Ends Life?” Honestly, her article is probably the most outrageous piece of abortion propaganda I’ve every read. However, it was surprisingly refreshing because I don’t think I’ve ever heard an abortion advocate blatantly admit, “Yes, babies in the womb are human beings, but so what.”Williams starts by explaining that one of the most clever moves pro-lifers have ever pulled was our so-called “co-opting of the word “life.’” She writes, “Life! Who wants to argue with that? Who wants be on the side of … not-life?...

    At least one in five patients declared brain dead and approved as organ donors by one organ donation organization, are in fact still alive and are being killed by the removal of vital organs, a lawsuit filed last week in Manhattan alleges. The suit outlines the ghoulish worst-case scenario, one that was widely dismissed as scaremongering in the early days of the development of organ transplant technology, but which is getting a second hearing amidst growing concerns that coercion and abuse are becoming increasingly common in the highly lucrative transplant business.

    Policy Missouri Right to Life does not support any organization that in its statements or in practice manifests anti-life positions on abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, or cloning. Missouri Right to Life urges citizens to consider carefully whether to support such organizations. Explanation Anti-life positions are manifested by organizations that are not directly involved in anti-life activities. Examples include, but are by no means limited to, such organizations as the American Bar Association (ABA Policy on Legislative and National Issues: Abortion [adopted August, 1992], available at http://www.abanet.org/policy/Ch-13greenbook2009-10.pdf), the Sierra Club (“[T]he Sierra Club is a pro-choice organization that...

    A pro-family advocate finds it odd that a group of homosexual activists has admitted to working to help defeat Mississippi's personhood amendment on Tuesday. In an announcement released the day after the vote, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund admits to sending activists to Jackson, Mississippi, to help with a phone bank and "stand in solidarity" with Planned Parenthood Federation of America and other abortion proponents. Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) thinks it was a peculiar alliance, since homosexuals cannot procreate. "This is a group that works hand-in-hand with so-called 'sexual freedom advocates,'...

    Women lawmakers made zero gains in Congress in this cycle--they will still make up about 17 percent of those chosen by voters to come to Washington. Two notable losses were Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln and Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin of South Dakota, both moderate Democrats. This palpable lack of progress was mourned as many gathered together at American University to discuss the "year of the woman" that never came to pass--despite or because of one Sarah Palin, a Republican who governed Alaska for about 15 minutes? That was a question. Here's an answer: the woman from Alaska does other women...

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the journalist conducting the interview, confessed that the remark left him speechless – especially since Kevorkian offered the strange and macabre confession without any provocation or lead-up question. Gutpa writes that, “Throughout the two-and-a-half hour interview, [Kevorkian] fluctuated wildly between being downright combative and hostile to being sweet and fatherly.” The journalist also mentioned Kevorkian’s “crazed rants,” “often about the Ninth Amendment to the Constitution,...

Kathleen Sebelius to lead the Health and Human Services Department, despite concerns voiced Friday by ranking Republican Charles E. Grassley of Iowa. Grassley called it a “bombshell” that Sebelius initially understated campaign contributions she had received years ago from a doctor who performs abortions. He said the contributions have “raised a lot of concern among pro-life people,” and added that he has not decided how he will vote on her nomination.

Saar was a member of a recent panel discussion at the liberal Center for American Progress (CAP) in Washington, D.C., to discuss the topic “Time for a Change in the Reproductive Rights Debate.” Saar said that much of her generation, the “Roe Generation” that came of age after the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion, has held a view of the abortion-rights movement...

    An abortionist who claims to have destroyed more than 20,000 unborn children and who once was Hillary Clinton's OB-GYN says he is doing "God's work" when he terminates a pregnancy. "Embryos and fetuses spontaneously aborted – most, but not all of those 'canceled' by 'God' – are ... luckless human souls," wrote William Harrison, referring to an ancient poem describing the plight of mankind. "But a few spontaneous abortions occur in desired pregnancies with no discernable abnormalities. For those girls and women and their families whose circumstances would make their babies 'luckless human souls,' I 'cancel' them before they become...

    Thirty-eight percent for Rudy; 16 percent for McCain. On the surface, the latest Gallup Poll of GOP voters is great news for the Giuliani campaign. Mitt Romney scored just 6 percent, less than Fred Thompson and Newt Gingrich (10 percent each) -- two guys who aren't even officially in the race. But the apparent collapse of the McCain candidacy (it's early yet) may end up being a problem for Rudy. Deep distrust of McCain as the designated GOP front-runner has to some extent shielded Rudy Giuliani from the focused opposition of social conservatives. Personally, I know I tried really hard...

    In a move to increase its relevance in the presidential selection process, the Golden State is set to jump up its primary from June of 2008 to February 5th, less than a year away.

This morning, the Wall Street Journal's John Fund notes the following numbers: With California moving its presidential primary to Feb. 5 of next year, what Golden State voters think about White...

    SACRAMENTO – Democratic lawmakers on Thursday introduced a bill allowing doctors to prescribe life-ending drugs to terminally ill patients, marking the third such attempt in as many years and drawing a swift response from critics. “Some people say that this bill is about suicide. It is not,” said Assemblywoman Patty Berg, D-Eureka, one of three co-authors. “Suicide is when you can live but you chose to die. This bill, on the other hand, deals with people who do not have a choice about dying.” The California Compassionate Choices Act would make California the second state in the nation to allow...

Powerful arguments about the humanity of the unborn have moved public opinion, and a pro-life political force has made ambitious politicians feel the heat, whether or not they see the light. Pro-lifers' faith in the power of persuasion has been rewarded, and their political clout increased, by important converts, including Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

Think about that for a moment. For five and a half years, Bush never saw fit to veto a single bill. But now, when Congress votes to support research that could save millions of lives, Bush breaks out his veto stamp for the first time. Stem cell research has shown promise in treating Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, cancer, spinal cord damage, and countless other...

    WASHINGTON, March 1, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a so-called 'Statement of Principles', 55 House Democrats have exposed themselves as being pro-abortion. The self-proclaimed 'historic' statement issued Monday, contains the basic message that the proponents support all the politically correct teachings of the Catholic Church such as reducing poverty and increasing access to education and health care but stop short on the Church's teaching on abortion. The letter also conveniently skips over the issue of homosexuality which has serious bearing in public life today. On abortion, the Democrats make a lame attempt to feign agreement with the Church saying that they,...

    During the next 35 years, the traditional view of the sanctity of human life will collapse under pressure from scientific, technological, and demographic developments. By 2040, it may be that only a rump of hard-core, know-nothing religious fundamentalists will defend the view that every human life, from conception to death, is sacrosanct. In retrospect, 2005 may be seen as the year in which that position became untenable. American conservatives have for several years been in the awkward position of defending a federal funding ban on creating new embryos for research that prevents U.S. scientists from leading an area of biomedical...

    Being pro-life used to mean, at a minimum, that you believe life begins at conception and that this life is worthy of protection at all stages of development. Sen. Bill Frist would like to "modify" that just a bit. First, a little background. On August 9, 2001, you'll recall, President Bush announced a compromise. He would allow federal funding of embryonic stem-cell (ESC) research. But he restricted this government support to the 78 or so ESC lines that had already been created as of that date, "where the life and death decision has already been made." Thus, Bush said that...

That is, of course, despite last-ditch efforts by President Bush and the Republican party-poopers in Congress to have Terri’s feeding tubes restored. Amid all the fuss, the left’s latest rationalization for starving poor little Terri to death is this: There may have been political motives behind the Republicans’ endeavor to save Terri’s life! President Bush signed a bill on March 21 that would transfer jurisdiction of the Terri Schiavo case to a U.S. district court. This...

For pro-lifers, that is a statement of the obvious. But what if you were confronted with the full horror of what that death represented -- and still didn't care? Is it possible that pro-abortionists could finally admit that abortion is murder, but then collectively shrug their shoulders?

    In an apparent effort to widen the gender gap and assist the Kerry campaign, hundreds of thousands of pro-abortion demonstrators held a rally in Washington, D.C. Roughly 1,400 organizations were involved in coordinating the event, and scads of Hollywood celebs showed up. Attendees included Cybill Shepherd, Ani DiFranco, Ashley Judd, Lisa Loeb, Salma Hayek, Amy Jo Johnson, Kathleen Turner and Whoopi Goldberg. Techno-rocker Moby, Carole King and the Indigo Girls provided some of the background music. Whoopi addressed the crowd. In her hand was the scare symbol of choice - a wire coat hanger. As she brandished the prop over...

    Tampa, FL (LifeNews.com) -- As the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Senator John Kerry backs abortion. But a woman in Florida who wanted Kerry to know she regretted her abortion says she is glad he saw a sign she carried at a recent campaign event -- even though his staff tore it up afterwards. After watching the nightly news, Rebecca Porter had a dream envisioning herself letting Kerry know she had an abortion and regretted her decision. Porter told LifeNews.com that she and a friend went to an event the Kerry campaign had scheduled in Tampa. She brought along a sign...

    RADICAL PRO-CHOICE CALL TO ACTION FOR APRIL 25, 2004: —feminists, radical cheerleaders, anti-authoritarians, anarchists and all those concerned with women’s autonomy: join us on April 25th 2004 in Washington, DC for a highly festive mobile cheer bloc! WHY: There was a time in America’s history when self-identifying radicals fought tirelessly to end government occupation of the womb—they succeeded. Many of us owe them our lives; all of us owe them our respect. But now, after spending 30 years ignorantly blanketed by the comfort of having the law on our side, the radical community gradually forgot that the freedom we consider...

    Today, Thursday, January 22, marks the 31st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that recognized a woman's right to decide the most private aspects of her life. But instead of celebrating another year of a woman's right to choose, we are working to ensure that 2004 is not the year that the rights of privacy and choice are extinguished. Energized by President Bush, an organized anti-choice movement is successfully taking our choices away. In December President Bush signed the first-ever federal criminal ban on abortion procedures, and he continues to pack our nation's federal courts with anti-choice...

    THE FORBIDDEN TOPIC No, I’m not going to open up the show for a discussion on abortion.  I will, however, exercise my privileges as the owner, writer and editor of this “blog” to drop in this comment.I learned from the Townhall.com C-Log this morning the reason why the media always uses the term “anti-abortion” instead of “prolife.”  It all comes from the Associated Press Stylebook.  This guideline for journalists says “Use anti-abortion instead of prolife, and abortion rights instead of pro-abortion or pro-choice.” Some people think that this is a bit biased.  The AP reasons that all people who support a...

    <p>Unmoved by criticism from a Philadelphia group and the urgings of its own dean, the student government at Washington University's law school is standing by two previous votes to deny recognition to an anti-abortion student group.</p> <p>At a hastily organized meeting at the law school Thursday, the Student Bar Association, as the governing body is called, aired once again the pros and cons of approving the Law Students Pro-Life group.</p>
