    FULL TITLE: California Assembly passes bill specifically exempting abortion clinics from surgical building code standards The state of California, who often leads the nation in laws and legislation, has taken a step backwards, as the California State Assembly passed an act to amend the current health and safety code in state medical facilities in a manner that would allow Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics to have fewer requirements, allowing them to perform their life-taking surgeries in non-surgical facilities. Assembly Bill 980 passed Friday and now moves to the Senate for debate. Assembly Bill 980 amends current California building codes...
  • Dems look to crack down on anti-abortion 'crisis pregnancy centers'

    Democrats in the House and Senate are looking to stop what they say are deceptive advertising practices by anti-abortion health clinics that imply they offer abortion services, but instead encourage birth and promote adoption. The legislation is aimed at crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), which are clinics often set up by a church or other anti-abortion groups. Democrats in Congress and other pro-abortion groups say these clinics are known to indicate they can perform abortions in order to attract pregnant women patients, and then try to convince them to carry their babies to term. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), the House sponsor...

    I’ve heard from so many people, especially women, who are utterly shocked at the progress anti-abortion forces have made in the last year and a half. Left and right bills are being passed that limit women’s ability to obtain abortions. The latest one in Georgia outlaws abortion after 20 weeks, with exception only given for pregnancies that are “medically futile” or threaten the mother’s life. There are initiatives to bestow personhood on zygotes and fetuses taking place all over the country. The Virginia ultrasound bill passed and Utah recently mandated a three day waiting period. When Thomas Frank wrote What’s...

    During the testimony in the murder trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell, numerous revelations have surfaced about the horrors that took place at his dilapidated late-term abortion clinic. Gosnell has been charged with eight counts of murder and several of his staff at the abortion center, including his wife and sister-in-law, have been charged as well in the case with assisting in botched abortions, practicing medicine without a license or covering up the actions of those who did. The counts include grisly infanticide s that involved Gosnell snipping the spines with scissors of babies who had purposefully been prematurely born...

    An abortion clinic escort, whose blog can be found here, wrote the following in a post on March 18: There are times a client and/or companion is so empowered they instantly gain my admiration. What is she so impressed by? She goes on to explain: The companion [of the woman who was having an abortion] got out of the car first. E [the pro-lifer] was hovering right behind me ready to start shaming. I was able to explain the vests and offer to escort them before he began his spiel. E handed the companion some literature. When I explained he...

    San Francisco Supervisor David Campos is about to introduce a law to end the city's 8-foot "bubble zone" around reproductive health clinics in favor of a new 25-foot "buffer zone." It's hard to imagine City Hall entertaining a law to curb the free speech expression of union representatives, Critical Mass bicyclists or anti-war activists, but anti-abortion protest is not welcome in this town. "We respect the right of people to have freedom of expression," Campos told the San Francisco Chronicle. "What is happening is more than that; it's intimidation." One man's free speech is another man's intimidation. When I went...

    A 63-year old Catholic grandmother of 12 was violently attacked yesterday outside the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Wilmington, Delaware, as she filmed the fourth abortion injury there in less than five weeks. Earlier in the day Rae Stabosz had been praying outside the Planned Parenthood clinic when a woman and her mother came to the clinic. Rae learned that the woman was suffering complications to an abortion she received on March 8. Rae persuaded them to go to St. Francis hospital where it was discovered that aborted baby body parts, including a leg and foot, had been left behind...

    Washington State, which already boasts widespread access to abortion, recently proposed legislation to ensure that this access is not mitigated when federal insurance changes take place next year. The bill, EHB1044, the “Reproductive Parity Act,” would amend existing legislation to ensure that insurance carriers do not limit or remove abortion coverage in the face of possible hurdles accompanying new federal legislation that takes effect in 2014. cutepregnantThe bill even received criticism from pro-abortion legislators who believed that it may be counter-productive to protecting abortion laws since it could jeopardize the implementation of federal laws. However, the measure contains language that...

    Giant-sized photos of female genitalia are coming to the University of Cincinnati this week. On Wednesday (March 6th), the University of Cincinnati Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Alliance and the UC Feminists will host a panel lead by Planned Parenthood. On Thursday they will host an “art” display called Re-envisioning the Female Body (WARNING: graphic) featuring 12 billboard-sized images of female genitalia on campus. The group says the obscene display comes in response to a recent appearance of the pro-life Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) on campus. GAP uses graphic photos of aborted babies to compare abortion and other past...

    Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s latest annual report for 2011-2012 says that its affiliated clinics performed 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011. That works out to an average of one abortion every 94 seconds. … The 2011-2012 report states that Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements,” which it states includes “payments from Medicaid managed care plans.” …

    With the recent face-plant of Todd Akin in Missouri, Democrats think they have hit on a winning theme for their convention in Charlotte. Agenda changes show that Democrats will make Akin the poster boy of the GOP and focus the three-day affair on abortion and contraception policy, Paul Bedard reports: Just as the Akin crisis was reaching a crescendo, the Democrats on Wednesday announced that three starlets of the pro-choice movement will be featured at the convention, an event that will now drive the liberal charge that the Republicans are anti-women.Democrats said that they will feature Cecile Richards, president of...

    OTTAWA, 16 August, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The largest association of doctors in Canada, in an attempt to stonewall a looming abortion debate from being unleashed, voted yesterday to support the wording of the country’s Criminal Code which states that a baby becomes a “human being” only after being born. Pro-life doctors and leaders have condemned the move as ‘shameful’, ‘unethical’, and ‘defying parody’. Delegates to the Canadian Medical Association’s annual general council voted on the motion so as to prevent what they called a “backdoor” attempt to reopen the abortion debate. They voted to pass, says a CMA report on...

    Abortion clinics across the nation have increasingly been offering discounts for their services on Sundays, partly to counter afternoon church protests by believers opposed to such clinics and the practice of abortion. Examples of such offers include the Orlando Women's Center abortion clinic in Florida, which advertises discounted abortions with the offer: "LIMITED TIME SPECIAL! PRINT THIS PAGE AND BRING IT IN FOR $50 SAVINGS. ONLY ON SUNDAYS!" The website Fund Abortion Now provides financial support to women seeking to have abortions and collects funds to aid them with their decision across all 50 states. "The 100+ local abortion funds...

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) –  Although a legal loophole has long allowed the process, a California legislator has proposed a bill to formally allow non-physicians – including midwives – to perform abortions. Now a state pro-life group wants to know who has been anonymously paying for and conducting an existing training program. State Senator Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, introduced a bill allowing non-physicians, such as midwives and nurse practitioners, to perform suction abortions after receiving training through a state project. “I think it endangers women’s health,” Dana Cody, president and executive director of Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF),...

    LifeSiteNews.com reported some time ago about Planned Parenthood’s latest, most bizarre effort to drum up support for its indefensible industry: holding a 40-day prayer campaign in favor of abortion. Kathleen Gilbert reported the 40 Days of Prayer material “lists 40 different prayers for those involved in the ‘sacred care’ of abortions to continue protecting, providing, and embracing the procedure - including mothers, escorts, abortionists, and everyone involved except the unborn children.” However, most of the national reporting has failed to convey the full breadth and diversity of the undertaking. The campaign is modeled on the more successful 40 Days of...

    Wow. Sometimes Satan indulges in jaw-dropping capers. I’m looking at a brochure from Six Rivers Planned Parenthood in Eureka, Calif. On it is an announcement from Humboldt County Clergy for Choice: “We are religious leaders who value all human life.” The flyer, for “40 Days of Prayer,” lists prayers such as: “Day 34: Today we give thanks for abortion escorts who guide women safely through the hostile gauntlets of protesters.” And “Day 38: Today we pray for a cloud of gentleness to surround every abortion facility.” This is not a sick April Fools’ Day joke. The campaign continues through April...

    Democratic Lawmaker: Nurses and Midwives to perform Abortions? A Democratic state senator wants to allow Nurses and midwives to perform early abortions. Senator Christine Kehoe says 'non-doctors' should be allowed to perform some abortions in the first trimester. Right now only doctors and surgeons are allowed to carry out the procedure.
