    The OC Weekly has reported that a woman who was under arrest was taken for late term abortion at the Family Planning Associates Medical Group (FPA) abortion clinic in Long Beach. Following her visit to FPA for the 20 week abortion the prisoner suffered an incomplete abortion and had to be hospitalized. The botched procedure was performed in 2012 but is only coming to light after the Orange County District Attorney’s Office published their investigative report on the death of the fetus. From the story: On March 13, 2012, Huntington Beach police arrested a woman identified in the report as...

    Every day, women around the world deal with the pain and grief of losing a baby in a miscarriage. Never one to show much compassion to women or their loved ones, Planned Parenthood is taking advantage of the term miscarriage to justify abortion. As the pro-life group STOPP reports, one Planned Parenthood abortion clinic has begun using plannedparenthood32bthe term “voluntary miscarriage” to characterize an abortion that purposefully takes the life of an unborn child via the RU 486 or mifepristone abortion drug. Moreover, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in question is putting women’s health and lives at risk by instructing...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday described herself as a “lioness” when it comes to protecting children. She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis” and for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back...

    Richard Mellon Scaife, the billionaire publisher and banking heir who financed conservative causes that included attempts to discredit Bill Clinton while he was president, has died. He was 82. Scaife's death on Friday followed his disclosure less than two months ago that he had terminal cancer, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, one of his newspapers. He was heir to the banking, oil and aluminum fortunes of the Mellon family and used his estimated $1.4 billion wealth to underwrite conservative crusades and groups that included the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute and the American Enterprise Institute.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains gave a special commendation to its office in Aurora, Colorado, for "exceeding abortion visits first half of fiscal year 2012 compared to first half of fiscal year 2013.” A former abortion industry worker took a picture of the award and sent it to And Then There Were None, the ministry of former Planned Parenthood manager Abby Johnson to those employed in her former industry. “Ever since I left Planned Parenthood, I...

    INN ^ | 6/19/2014, 10:21 PM | Dr. Eli Schussheim
    Israel has some of the most liberal laws on abortion in the western world. Around 40,000 abortions are carried out each year; that is about 110 abortions every single day. There is no protest or public outcry; there is no real debate in the public discourse. No pro-life or pro-choice movements. Recent legislation is making it even easier by enabling women between the ages of 20-33 to receive free government-funded abortions. The Israeli Ministry of Health will now pay $4.6 Million annually to abort thousands of healthy unborn babies in healthy wombs. Surely this money could be better spent on...

    Melinda Gates, of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has announced that her international family planning foundation will no longer fund abortion because she believes abortion and family planning have become “conflated.” Gates, wife of the Microsoft founder and a self-professed Catholic, said in a statement on the foundation’s website, titled Impatient Optimists, that she grew concerned about the intertwining of family planning and abortion recently when she was interviewed in Toronto. Though reporters asked her about the Gates Foundation’s newborn and child health initiatives, she said, “every journalist also focused on Canada’s policy on abortion.” “Let me tell you...

    A European Citizen’s Initiative (ECI) has called on the EU to stop funding abortion in developing countries. The European Commission has dismissed it outright. EurActiv France reports. The EU’s executive stuck to its guns and refused to limit direct or indirect European finances for abortion in developing countries. The EU is the number one aid donor in the world and differs from the United States, where funding for abortion is not permitted in development aid. The rejected demand was presented by a citizen initiative called One of Us, which has collected over one million signatures across seven EU member states....

One of the doctors that Magda Denes interviewed describes his reaction to being called upon to save some unborn babies while aborting others: You have to become a bit schizophrenic. In one room you encourage the patient that the slight irregularity of the fetal heart is not important – that she is going to have a fine,...

Gosnell instantly became the face of abortion in in the prolife community. But there’s another, more recognizable face pushing abortion in the U.S. – liberal billionaire Warren Buffett. The so-called “Oracle of Omaha” has donated more than $1.2 billion to abortion organizations from 2001 to 2012.

    "Rare is the leader who makes us want to be better people." President Obama added his voice to Time's list of "The 100 Most Influential People" by penning a tribute to Pope Francis. By implication, Obama associated himself with the pontiff and ultimately to Jesus. Obama called the pope "a moral leader in word and deed," equating Francis's message of inclusion with Jesus's "essence." Sprinkled within this panegyric was Obama's own familiar refrain heard throughout his presidency: "alleviate poverty…reduce inequality…open new doors of opportunity and visions of possibility for everyone." Obama's social agenda is nothing he has kept secret. Nor...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie delivered a message to his fellow members of the Republican Party on Thursday: being pro-life means reforming America’s drug laws and criminal sentencing procedures. Christie has long advocated for drug treatment programs as a means of reforming the country’s prison system, but Christie took a new tactic on Thursday when he framed that advocacy as a pro-life argument. “I’m pro-life, and I believe strongly in the sanctity of life,” Christie told an audience in Jersey City on Thursday. Addressing his fellow Republican governors, Christie said that “it’s great to be pro-life, but you need to...

    Amid raucous debate, Nevada Republican Party conventioneers on Saturday stripped opposition to gay marriage and abortion from the party platform and endorsed Gov. Brian Sandoval for governor in the June 10 primary despite misgivings by conservatives, his criticism of the process and his absence from the meeting. The convention also backed Sue Lowden for lieutenant governor over state Sen. Mark Hutchison, R-Las Vegas, who was endorsed by Sandoval and who also spurned the party’s move to endorse candidates before the primary. A nominating committee proposed more than three dozen pre-primary endorsements, although the panel decided against recommending anybody in the...

    The U.S. Justice Department is telling the Supreme Court that killing a human embryo by preventing the embryo from implanting in his or her mother’s uterus is not an “abortion” and, thus, drugs that kill embryos this way are not “abortion-inducing” drugs. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby. The crux of the administration’s argument in this case is that when Christians form a corporation they give up the right to freely exercise their religion—n.b. live according to their Christian beliefs—in the way they run their business. It is in...

The abortion giant writes: Care for your little one in this adorable 100% combed ringspun cotton onesie. Featuring our tagline, Care. No matter what, in an adorable heart design, this onesie is designed to handle everyday knock around. Well, for starters, “everyday knock around” doesn’t exactly describe how a caring parent should treat an infant. (Keep in mind that these onesies are sold in sizes as small as newborn.) But I suppose the idea of “knocking around” a kid shouldn’t sound that foreign coming from...

District Judge Lee Yeakel wrote Monday that the regulations violated the rights of abortion doctors to do what they think is best for their patients and would unreasonably restrict a woman's access to abortion clinics.

    Details:  The Mater Hospital in Dublin’s north inner city is one of 25 named in controversial legislation where a pregnancy can be terminated if the woman’s life is in danger.In a statement today, hospital chiefs said they had carefully considered the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act and would abide by the law.“The hospital’s priority is to be at the frontier of compassion, concern and clinical care for all our patients,” the statement said.“Having regard to that duty, the hospital will comply with the law as provided for in the act.”The confirmation follows claims last month from one of the hospital’s board of governors...

    CINCINNATI, August 20, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Graphic images of aborted babies have been known to induce profound and searing emotions, ranging from tears and trauma, to nausea and revulsion. Some Planned Parenthood supporters decided the images made a perfect backdrop for a self-portrait. The Ohio-based Stand True Pro-Life Outreach protested outside a Planned Parenthood fundraiser on Saturday. “Summer’s Over – What a Drag…” at The Cabaret charged attendees between $10 and $30 to see drag queens strut their stuff. “We protested and witnessed at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Cincinnati last Saturday, it was a Drag Queen show,” said Bryan...

    Sandra Fluke, a former “reproductive justice” advocate at Georgetown Law School, has a new mission: getting more women to run for elective office. … Fluke, a liberal Democrat, said she hopes the Republican Party succeeds in getting more women to run. “We need to have women representing diverse ideological perspectives,” she said. “But in terms of the voter base—they’re not going to get the majority of women’s votes until their policies change.” …

    WICHITA, KS, August 9, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Numerous mainstream and left-leaning media outlets have highlighted the “Abortion Rights Freedom Rides,” a caravan of activists now traveling to 14 states to support "Abortion on demand and without apology." However, no media outlet has reported that the event is being conducted by the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, a cult-like Maoist sect that calls for “millions of people to rise up in mass armed revolution” against the United States “when the time is right.” The abortion freedom rides are being led by Stop Patriarchy, a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party USA...

    Three major drugstore chains—CVS, RiteAid, and Walgreens—have moved “Plan B,” a drug that can induce an abortion, onto the open shelves in their stores, where it is now sold like aspirin or other non-prescription drugs. In April, Judge Edward Korman of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make the drug available on a non-prescription basis to women “of all ages.” On June 20, the FDA announced that it had approved the non-prescription sale of Plan B to all women who have “reproductive potential” no matter what their age....

    Lawmakers overwhelmingly voted Friday to back Ireland’s first bill on abortion, legalizing the practice in exceptional cases where doctors deem the woman’s life at risk from her pregnancy, as the predominantly Catholic country took its first legislative step away from an outright ban. … While the decisive outcome was expected given Prime Minister Enda Kenny’s lopsided parliamentary majority, passage of the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill did inflict damage on Kenny’s 2-year-old coalition government. Catholic conservatives vowed to drive his centrist Fine Gael party from power for violating its 2011 campaign pledge not to legislate on abortion. … Kenny,...

    (Activists use children to carry coat hanger sign.) AUSTIN -- Capitalizing on the fervor generated by Sen. Wendy Davis' filibuster against abortion restrictions last week, Texas Democrats on Monday tried to recast the debate raging at the state Capitol as symbolic of Republican indifference to working families. Speaking to an enthusiastic throng numbered at 3,000 by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Democratic lawmakers pilloried the state's Republican leadership on issues ranging from Gov. Rick Perry's veto of an equal pay bill to crowded public school classrooms. At a noon rally, Davis said the abortion debate provided a spark...

    With Texas State Senator Wendy Davis’ filibuster of SB 5 last week, she’s become a liberal rockstar. Her filibuster was halted and the bill was passed, but not before the 12am deadline, which killed the bill – for now. The unruly masses of pro-aborts in the gallery caused such a disturbance that procedural motions were unable to be heard, thus preventing the bill from being passed successfully. It was mob rule. The bill would’ve banned abortions 20-weeks into a pregnancy. And Gov. Rick Perry has already called another special session to begin July 1. The bill has the votes. It’s...

    After President Obama tweeted his support of Texas State Senator Wendy Davis who filibustered a bill that would ban late term abortions and keep women safe from Gonsell-like abortionists on Tuesday night, his old campaign operation, now Organizing for Action, doubled down and sent out an email saying, “We’re still standing with Wendy, and we’re not backing down.” OFA sent out an email from their National Director of Issue Campaigns, Lindsay Siler, on Thursday asking readers to “stand up for women in Texas.” But what was she asking email subscribers to stand up FOR? For all the talk about women’s...

    Reporters laughed. At her regularly scheduled Thursday-morning press conference as leader of the House Democrats, former speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked to explain the moral difference between killing “a baby born alive at 23 weeks,” as Dr. Kermit Gosnell did in his Philadelphia clinic, and “aborting her moments before her birth.” The question had come up because the House Judiciary Committee had just approved the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, sponsored by Arizona Republican Trent Franks, which would ban abortion after 20 weeks of gestation. It’s a perfectly reasonable question, but one that Pelosi answered with derision...

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday it is “morally outrageous” to ban abortions after five months of pregnancy. “It is morally outrageous, frankly,” Nadler said about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), a bill that would ban abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization, or five months into pregnancy. “Here we go again,” he said. “Every single year we have to go through the same nonsense with the same morally presumptuous, morally arrogant attitude that we know better. ‘We know better than women and their doctors. We know better about their health care. We know better about their moral choices in...
