    This week, the House of Representatives is voting on a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The last time the House considered this bill, an expert on human embryonic development informed members of the committee that unborn babies have the capacity to feel pain as early as 8 weeks. Maureen Condic, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah and obtained her Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley. She is a widely-published scientist whose works have appeared in a wide variety of peer-reviewed journals. “The earliest “rudiment” of the human...

    Over the past decade or so as $10 million apartments have prevailed in New York and more and more neighborhoods have been given over to the kind of luxury shopping required to fill them, it has been common to say that the city has turned into a “playground for the rich.” At the same time, of course, New York has turned into a playground of the more literal kind, with a child-centric ethos bearing well-established variants of urban nuisance: stroller gridlock in gentrifying areas, car services that cater to 5-year-olds, sidewalk whining that in some cases becomes its own source...

    REDFORD, MI -- Kim Pappas, a 25-year-old Wyandotte mother, gave birth inside a bathroom stall during business hours at her office in Redford on March 31, Redford police say. What she did next led to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office charging her with murder Friday. Pappas placed the full-term newborn in a sealed plastic bag, then inside a tote; she put the tote inside her desk drawer at Ceva Logistics, shut it and returned to work as usual.

    By now the horrific story about Michelle WilkinsÂ’ 7 month old preborn Aurora being ripped from her motherÂ’s womb in Colorado has dominated headlines throughout the country. Dynel Lane, the perpetrator, was charged with eight felonies by the Boulder County District AttorneyÂ’s office. Yet one charge was visibly missing: the murder of baby Aurora. A new poll reveals that 76% of Americans agree that an attacker who causes the death of a womanÂ’s preborn child should be charged with murder. Colorado has devastatingly failed Aurora. Michelle WilkinsÂ’ story is tragic. Wilkins, 26, answered a fraudulent Craigslist ad for baby clothes....

    A provision in a new Arizona law requiring doctors to tell women that their abortion may be reversible has made national headlines, incited outrage from abortion-rights groups, and sparked heated criticism from the medical community. An almost identical provision in an Arkansas law signed this week by Gov. Asa Hutchinson has not seen much media coverage. Even the man who has pioneered the idea of abortion reversals—Dr. George Delgado—said he hadn't heard of the Arkansas law until National Journal informed him of it during a phone interview. Delgado, medical director of Culture of Life Family Services in San Diego, has...

    It could be a week before we know whether a Longmont woman who allegedly stabbed a pregnant woman and removed her unborn child will face a charge of first degree murder. The Boulder District Attorney says a murder charge is not a given because of Colorado laws and the facts surrounding the case. During a news conference Thursday District Attorney Stan Garnett said any murder charge involving an unborn child is very difficult. “Under Colorado law, essentially, there’s no way murder charges can be brought if it’s not established that the fetus lived as a child outside the body of...

    Sen. David Vitter gave a speech on the Senate floor calling on Congress to end the practice of birthright citizenship, arguingthat "no sane country" would allow it for the children of illegal immigrants. Vitter ended the remarks Thursday by saying he was actually quoting an old speech by Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who now opposes ending birthright citizenship. Reid had slammed Vitter over the issue the previous day. "This is not my statement. Let me clarify: This is Sen. Harry Reid's statement on the floor of the U.S. Senate," said the Louisiana Republican, who is sponsoring an anti-birthright...

The mother was dead, but the officers said that they heard an adult's voice calling to them. "The four of us heard a distinct voice coming from the car," Warner told CNN. "To me, it didn't sound like a child's voice." The voice gave the rescuers a surge of adrenaline needed to push the vehicle upright, he said. The mother was dead.

    On the outside, the metal box looks like an oversized bread container. But what's inside could save an abandoned newborn's life. The box is actually a newborn incubator, or baby box, and it could be showing up soon at Indiana hospitals, fire stations, churches and selected nonprofits under legislation that would give mothers in crisis a way to surrender their children safely and anonymously. Indiana could be the first state to allow use of the baby boxes on a broad scale to prevent dangerous abandonments of infants if the bill, which unanimously passed the House this week, clears the state...

    Mary Rathke has an amazing story. She was conceived in rape, which means she’s fortunate just to be alive. With a society that thinks abortion is perfectly fine in cases of rape or incest — after all, who wants to carry the baby of a rapist – most people forget that the debate over abortion in such “hard cases” is a debate that includes someone else other than the mother who was tragically victimized by rape. That someone else in this case is Mary. “My mother was raped; many would say I am the rapist’s baby. Those mothers who have...

    The mainstream media in both the U.S. and Europe have done a stellar job protecting the identities of two men who committed a gruesome atrocity against a 19-year-old pregnant woman and her unborn child, and for good reason: the men are Muslims. Not wishing to fuel the “Islamophobia” that liberals claim is so dangerous, the cowardly media bows to Sharia law by safeguarding the very ideology that contributed to these two criminals’ violent choices. This political correctness continues to protect the offenders, subsequently victimizing the innocent and creating more potential victims.

    After a rough day at work, it's hard to beat coming home to people a happy household. Baby Isaiah can barely stand up, but patiently waits at the window for his daddy to come home. When he sees his car, he waves and then speed-crawls his way to greet his hero. That's a worthwhile homecoming.

    From Lydia, an administrator at an abortion clinic: “Patients who have a wanted pregnancy and lose it, or choose abortions because of fetal anomalies, always call it “the baby.” It is a baby to them, developed or not… Some women never “connect” to the pregnancy… For them, it is nothing like a baby. It is just there, and they want it removed. They would hate the word “baby” and do not use it. Our job is to meet the woman where she is and provide her with accurate information. I do not feel it is my job to correct terminology...

    CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A newborn baby was thrown into a pit by her mother, set on fire and left for dead.

That's only part of this baby's incredible story. For Raelenna and Jeremy Ferguson and their family, this moment was nothing short of a miracle. The sweetest ending to one of...

    FULL TITLE: End-of-life debate turns to newborns: ‘Postnatal abortion’ morally acceptable in some cases, ethicist says Doctors would be justified to end the lives of some terminally impaired newborn babies, says a prominent Canadian bioethicist in a report that pushes the country’s euthanasia debate into provocative new territory. Much of the discussion of physician assisted-death in Canada has centred around adult patients capable of making known how they want to end their lives. But Udo Schuklenk, a Queen’s University philosophy professor, argues that in rare cases of severely impaired, deeply suffering newborns, actively causing death is morally acceptable, if still...
