    Not too long ago, the Greens of Oklahoma City were law-abiding people running an arts-and-crafts chain called Hobby Lobby. They weren’t disturbing the peace, or denying anyone his or her rights. They were minding their own business — quite successfully and in keeping with their Christian faith. The roughly 600 Hobby Lobby stores stock Christian products, close on Sundays, and play Christian music. Then one day Uncle Sam showed up to make an offer that the Greens couldn’t refuse — literally. As part of Obamacare, federal law demands that the chain cover contraceptives that the Greens consider abortifacients. The family...

    “The Gosnell conviction represents a major setback to Barack Obama’s insistence the right of a woman to terminate a pregnancy is absolute, extending even to situations where a baby survives an attempted late-term abortion,” WND senior staff reporter and author Jerome Corsi said today after Kermit Gosnell was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder. The charges stemmed from the deaths of three babies born alive – then killed – in his Philadelphia abortion business.

    If you missed it, President Obama gave a twelve-minute speech at the abortion giant’s annual gala, and finished with, “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” There are so many things wrong with this, but let’s focus on the fact that it doesn’t make any sense. On this, pro-lifers and pro-choicers should agree. First, Planned Parenthood. It is the nation’s largest abortion business. Abortion provides more of its revenues than any other product or service. It slices, stabs, chemical burns, and vacuums humans to death for $500-$900 a head. Now God. Certainly, God is opposed to the cruel termination and...

    Did President Barack Obama indirectly “endorse” embattled late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell in his speech to Planned Parenthood today? Obama ignored Gosnell and made no mention of his murder trial during the speech to the abortion company today, but Billy Valentine, the director of policy and political work for the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group, says that if you take Obama literally at what he said, he should have no problem with what Gosnell did at his “house of horrors” abortion clinic. During his speech, Obama said “there’s nothing conservative about the government injecting itself into decisions best...

    resident Obama has canceled plans to deliver a keynote address at Planned Parenthood’s annual fundraising dinner Thursday night after critics decried his high-profile role at the abortion rights group amid new concerns about the brutality of illegal forms of abortion. White House spokesman Jay Carney announced the decision to cancel the keynote speech at the gala during his daily press briefing with reporters Wednesday. He attributed the schedule change to Mr. Obama’s desire to spend more time at a memorial service in Waco, Texas, for family members of the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion.

    When I read that President Obama refused to comment on the murder trial of abortion butcher Kermit Gosnell "because it's an active trial," I knew immediately he wasn't being truthful. In fact, the second I heard about Obama's excuse for dodging the question, I tweeted that ongoing investigations or trials did not preclude his publicly weighing in on the Trayvon Martin case or on the case of his friend and Harvard professor Henry Gates, about which he said the Cambridge police had acted "stupidly." If there ever has been a case of tainting the jury pool, Obama's public identification with...

    A deliberate effort is underway to rebrand Planned Parenthood as an integral provider of healthcare services, without which untold millions of women would lack basic medical care, or so the story goes. Thus, whenever any effort is made to cut off funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider and stalwart financier of leftist politicians, we’re told there is a “war on women.” But it’s not a “war on women” when a state simply places a higher priority on funds for true health services that Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform Take, for example, mammograms. Yes, mammograms. Perhaps there is no greater falsehood...

The concern pro-life organizations had about the ObamaCare legislation funding abortions has been confirmed, as the Obama administration has issued the final rules on abortion funding governing the controversial health care law. Nestled within the “individual mandate” in the Obamacare act — that portion of the Act requiring every American to purchase government — approved insurance or pay a penalty — is an “abortion premium mandate.” This mandate requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay a separate premium from their own pockets to fund abortion. As a result, many pro-life Americans...

    President Barack Obama has not yet decided whether to go forward with a proposed regulation under the health care law he signed last year that would force Catholic individuals and institutions to act against the teachings of the Catholic church. In August, Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius proposed a regulation--that would take affect next fall--that would require all health care plans to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including abortifacients. The proposed regulation includes a very narrow religious exemption that does not cover individual Catholics, or Catholic universities, hospitals or charitable institutions.

At the same time, a federal probe is attempting to determine whether the Obama Administration is violating federal law by using taxpayer money to lobby for the constitution, deeply controversial in Kenya in large part because of its abortion provisions."We are hopeful, Barack Obama is hopeful, I am hopeful that you will carry out these reforms...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- New polls show Americans have not come around to support the pro-abortion health care law President Barack Obama signed. With the mid-term Congressional elections looming on the horizon, White House officials are putting together a concerted effort to boost support for it before voters head to the polls. Yesterday, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey showed 56% favor repeal of the law, while 39% are opposed. Support for repeal is unchanged from a week ago and from other polls since Congress passed and Obama signed into law the bill that forces taxpayers to fund abortions....

    In college Elena Kagan wrote an essay lamenting Republican gains in the 1980 election and referring to candidates backed by the Moral Majority as "avengers of 'innocent life' and the B-1 bomber." Now that Kagan stands as a nominee to join the Supreme Court, some conservatives believe the 30-year-old remark may reveal a personal animosity toward their side of the abortion rights cause. But liberal activists also wonder about Kagan's position. They point to memos she wrote as a policy staffer in the Clinton White House urging President Clinton to take a compromise position on some late-term abortions.

    Memo Misread: Elena Kagan Did Not Tell Clinton to Back Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Washington, DC -- To hear mainstream media outlets like the Associated Press and Washington Post tell the story, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan once urged President Bill Clinton to back a ban on partial-birth or late-term abortions. The take from the stories is that Kagan's rock solid pro-abortion views aren't that strong. http://LifeNews.com/nat6323.html

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A new bill filed by pro-life members of Congress would apply the historic Hyde amendment language to the new health care bill President Barack Obama signed into law that calls for massive abortion funding. The legislation would afford the same pro-life protections that were approved with bipartisan support in the House last year via the Stupak amendment that didn't make the final bill.Stupak, the author of the previous amendment, eventually joined with other pro-life Democrats in voting for the pro-abortion health care bill in exchange for an Obama executive order that pro-life groups say won't...

After all, Obama had the direst pro-abortion record of any candidate ever elected to the White House. He had stubbornly opposed such common sense measures as...

    "President Barack Obama wasted little time after his election in promoting abortion abroad by overturning the Mexico City Policy and forcing Americans to pay for abortions and abortion promotion in other nations," notes LifeNews.com editor Steven Ertelt in an April 7 online report. "Now the Obama administration is attempting to get Kenya to legalize abortion," reports Ertelt. The LifeNews.com article notes that the African nation of Kenya recently saw its parliament approve a draft Constitution that would overturn its historic prohibition on abortion. Although the draft contains language advocating the right to life for unborn children, it contains a section...
