    Irish Times ^ | 05/11/2016 | Kitty Holland
    The rights of people with disabilities, access to abortion services and prisoners rights were most frequently raised at the United Nations in Geneva today, where Ireland faced questioning on its human rights record. [] While six states including Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden had lodged advance questions on access to abortion services, the issue was raised by many more states at the session in Geneva, including Canada, France, the US, Lithuania, Macedonia, Switzerland, the Republic of Korea and Iceland. Slovenia recommended Ireland decriminalize abortion in all circumstances and, as a minimum, ensure access to safe abortion also in...

    Its been nearly three years since Wendy Davis stood in the Texas State Capitol and filibustered an abortion bill for 11 hours straight, buoyed by her pink sneakers, a back brace, and the knowledge that there were so many women outside the chamber watching her fight and cheering. The bill eventually passed, Davis later lost a gubernatorial bid, and she is now out of politics for the first time in decades. Throughout all of that, however, shes proven that shes more than willing to keep trying to get things done even when the chance of victory seems to be...

    Child killing abortion giant Planned Parenthood is using God to target paying customers for abortion. In a Pastoral Letter to Patients, Planned Parenthood tells women and girls in a crisis pregnancy that there is nothing in the scriptures that says abortion is wrong and that many clergy think abortion is okay: The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, youre not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, were here to support you in your decision. Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth...

    Gov. Charlie Baker wont be attending the Republican National Convention in Ohio this July, breaking a string of Massachusetts governors with prominent speaking roles at the partys convention. Baker, who was elected to office and has governed as a moderate Republican, has taken issue with the partys leading presidential candidates this election cycle. He has criticized Donald Trumps reprehensible comments about Muslims and women and said Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz have not shown an ability to collaborate with others. Other moderate Republicans, including New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, have also said they do...

    It has been astounding to see so many conservatives wringing their hands about the prospect of voting for Donald Trump. It has been unbelievable to see so many Republican women say they would never vote for him. It has been depressing to watch conservative icons draw a line in the sand and insist they will stay home or vote third-party in November if Trump is the nominee. Some have even gone as far to claim they will vote for Hillary Clinton. What could possibly be going through the minds of these people? There are two certainties developing among Republican voters:...

    Missouri Republicans are looking back more than a century for guidance as they consider whether to hold a regional Planned Parenthood CEO in contempt of the Senate a rare judgment that could carry jail time. Senators from both parties have raised questions about how theyd carry out a process that may include testimony before the entire chamber, arrests and sentencing decisions. Theyve found little direction from recent history; so far, legislative librarians say the last contempt proceeding theyve found occurred in 1903. A Senate panel is to consider proposals Tuesday that would summon Mary Kogut, who heads Planned Parenthood...

    Hundreds of women have marched in Warsaw to demand greater accessibility to abortion, better working conditions and more state support in raising children. [] Abortion in Poland is allowed when pregnancy endangers the womans life, is the result of rape or incest, or when the fetus has an incurable defect. Womens rights activists are concerned that these regulations may be toughened by the ruling conservative Law and Justice party.

    Pro-life and abortion activists alike gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court building today awaiting the hearing on an important abortion case out of Texas. The U.S. Supreme Court case Whole Womans Health v. Hellerstedt was bought by abortion businesses against a pro-life Texas law responsible for closing abortion clinics that could not guarantee they could protect the health of Texas women. The law has been credited with saving the lives of more than 10,000 unborn children. Among the pro-abortion speakers was the Rev. Debra Haffner, a Jewish Unitarian Universalist who preached in favor of abortion in front of the Supreme...

    The Supreme Court will hear a case next month whose outcome could limit access to abortion for millions of women across the United States. In perhaps the most important ruling since the practice became legal in the country, justices may use the case to revise constitutional principles on abortion and to determine how far all states can go to restrict it. The case focuses on the legality of two provisions of a 2013 Texas law that place restrictions on doctor's performing abortions and the types of clinics that can adopt the practice. The requirements state that all physicians performing abortions...

    A Purdue University staff member is being investigated after he allegedly threatened to rape pro-life women during an online debate about the campus pro-life club's recent campaign. The Purdue Students for Life group has been facing a heavy backlash this week after its members put up posters around campus that focused on how the abortion industry targets black women and their unborn babies for abortions. In coordination with Black History Month, the campaign posters read "Hands Up, Don't Abort" and "Black Children are an Endangered Race" and included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. On Monday, a small group of pro-abortion students and...

    It has become sadly unoriginal for abortion doctors to use religion as an excuse for killing unborn babies. Mississippi abortion doctor Willie Parker regularly defends his abortion practice with religious references, claiming his abortion career is "a ministry" and the parable of the Good Samaritan inspired him to abort unborn babies. Young abortion doctor-in-training Carolyn Payne also recently wrote a column, claiming that her Christian faith motivated her to pursue a career as an abortionist. And in November, pro-lifers in Chicago filmed an unnamed abortionist as she knelt and prayed on the sidewalk, thanking God that she can abort unborn...

The representatives with the most experience harvesting fetal organs, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola, and Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s Director of Research Melissa Farrell, indicated this already happens at their sites as a routine matter.

    Pro-life pregnancy centers in California must choose between providing abortion information or paying fines. They face that dilemma after California judges denied multiple requests for preliminary injunctions against a law that went into effect January 1, mandating that all licensed pregnancy centers "disseminate to clients" a message promoting public programs with "free or low-cost access" to abortion and contraceptive services. Pregnancy centers that fail to disseminate this message "are liable for a civil penalty of five hundred dollars ($500) for a first offense and one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each subsequent offense." ...

Writing for Elle magazine, Sady Doyle recently criticized a Newsweek December cover in a piece titled “Why Does Newsweek’s ‘Abortion Wars’ Cover Show a Cartoon Fetus Instead of a Woman?” Doyle commended the magazine for tackling abortion in its new cover story – but bashed the cover illustration for showing a fetus that looked “more like a baby” than an “actual pregnancy.” Puzzled yet? In a rant, Doyle described what made her “flabbergasted” by the cover: the fact that the image...

    The Executive Office of the President of the United States -- aka Barack Obama -- released a document in the days leading up to Christmas that proves once again that reality conspires against even the most careful liars. The White House intended the document in question -- dryly titled "Long-Term Benefits of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program" -- to build the case for expanding the value and availability of food stamps. What the document demonstrates is that even the Obama White House knows that an unborn child is a child. During his political career, Obama has made great exertions to...

CMP is the group of citizen journalists responsible for producing the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthoods practice of selling baby parts.

John McCain (R-Ariz.) responded that he would not vote to shut down the government. The continuing resolution currently in force authorizes funding of most of the federal government through Sept. 30, the last day of fiscal 2015. To fund the government after that date, Congress needs to pass another continuing resolution, which may or may not include language that prohibits federal funds from going to Planned Parenthood.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says that defunding Planned Parenthood will have to wait for a new commander in chief in 2017. The presidents made it very clear hes not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood, so thats another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood, McConnell said Monday on the Kentucky station WYMTs Issues and Answers. Defunding Planned Parenthood has become a leading cause among some Republicans in the wake of controversial undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the price of fetal tissue...

    It is tempting to dismiss the latest anti-choice salvo from Ohio lawmakers, which would criminalize abortions based on a fetal diagnosis of Down syndrome, as a blatantly unconstitutional ploy that would never be enforced. That would be a mistake. The bill stands a disturbingly good chance of approval this fall by the states Republican-controlled legislature A similar bill passed in North Dakota in 2013 bans abortions on the grounds of fetal genetic anomalies, including Down syndrome. The law has not yet been enforced under existing Supreme Court precedent it is hard to see how it could be but...

    In a letter to Congress intended to defend its practices and attack its hidden-video critics, Planned Parenthood wound up lending credence to accusations that it manipulates rules on selling fetal organs to maximize profit. Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, admitted in an 11-page letter Thursday that its affiliates have accepted payments ranging from $45 to $60 per tissue specimen from abortions, but said that they were reimbursements to cover costs, which federal law allows. But she also said that adjustments that facilitate fetal tissue donations rarely occur at our few clinics that offer women this...

    A friend recently went through statements published by the Irish Bishops’ Conference between 2012 and 2015 to examine the language the bishops used about morality, especially in response to the initiatives of the Enda Kenny government. During this period the Irish government legalised both the killing of unborn babies through abortion and the treatment of homosexuality as equivalent with heterosexuality through so called same-sex "marriage". The statements from the Bishops’ Conference show the Irish bishops failing to name the evil of abortion and homosexual sex even though the Second Vatican Council named abortion an “unspeakable crime” (Gaudium et Spes, 50)...

    Charlotte Ivancic, Speaker John Boehners (R-Ohio) top health policy aide, is leaving his office to join the lobbying firm Tarplin, Downs & Young, the firm announced Wednesday. Ivancic led the negotiations for Boehner on the repeal of Medicares Sustainable Growth Rate this year. The elimination of the annual Washington headache of automatic cuts to doctors under Medicare, after negotiations with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was a significant achievement. [] Tarplin, Downs & Young was founded in 2006 by former Republican healthcare staffers in the Bush administration and on Capitol Hill. It also has former Democratic staffers.

    During a town hall event yesterday in Salem, New Hampshire, Ohio Gov. John Kasich took a question from an attendee about Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that created a constitutional right to abortion. Kasichs answer, which appeared to affirm the court ruling, will likely complicate his bid to woo pro-life voters who are already skeptical of his anti-abortion bona fides.

    Three more statesAlabama, Louisiana, and New Hampshirehave cut off state funding to Planned Parenthood (PP) in the wake of recent videos released by the Center for Medical Progress that appear to show PP officials negotiating over the sale of aborted baby organs and tissue. The three are the latest states to defund the nations largest abortion provider. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker ended state funding of abortion-performing facilities, including Planned Parenthood, in 2011. According to LifeSiteNews, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, and Texas also prohibit state funds from going to any facility that performs abortions.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell strongly implied yesterday that he wouldn't push to defund Planned Parenthood in the September appropriations negotiations. McConnell seemed to express fears that such a fight could backfire on public perception of Republicans, particularly if it led to the threat of a government shutdown

    People who pay union dues may be donating to Planned Parenthood whether they like it or not. The Free Beacon reported on Monday that three of the biggest unions in America donated a total of $435,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2014. The three unions were the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU). AFSCME and SEIU both represent public sector employees.​ But the ties between Planned Parenthood and some of America’s biggest unions go far beyond donations. Almost all of the 2014 union-donated money was spent...

    In the fourth and most startling undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) admits that about 10 percent of their second trimester babies are born intact before the abortion procedure is done. CMP points out that since PPRM does not use digoxin or other feticide in its second trimester procedures, any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law (1 USC 8). Because PPRM does not use digoxin, this would mean women who are dilated, but have not had the abortion procedure,...
