    SACRAMENTO, CA, May 27, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Since Gov. Jerry Brown signed a sweeping new bill into law last October, the state of California has trained dozens of non-physicians to perform abortions, and the state's women are likely to suffer double the rate of complications as a result, pro-life experts tell LifeSiteNews. Gov. Brown signed A.B. 154, introduced by San Diego Democrat Toni Atkins, to authorize midwives, nurse practitioners, and physicians’ assistants to perform first-trimester suction aspiration abortions. His office said the new law would “support the health and well-being of women in California.”

    Several months ago, a confusing call was placed by a Planned Parenthood worker in Houston to 911 dispatch during complications following an abortion. A 33-year-old woman continued to lose a dangerous amount of blood at the behemoth abortion mill on the Gulf Freeway as Planned Parenthood tried to circumvent the fact that the woman was bleeding out. It is likely that Planned Parenthood knew that pro-lifers would be pulling the call records to find out what had prompted the ambulance to arrive at Planned Parenthood, and wanted to obfuscate the facts for the public. But in so doing, the worker...

    One week after the Texas Medical Board dismissed a complaint against the infamous Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen due to “insufficient evidence,” Karpen committed a wildly botched abortion on Melanie Mendoza. The event occurred a year ago, but new legal documents have come to light revealing new facts about the case. Thanks in part to the testimony of three of his former employees to Operation Rescue last year, America finally came to see Douglas Karpen as the “Texas Gosnell” that he is. Karpen is accused of routinely murdering babies born alive after his unsuccessful abortions, often very large babies whose abortions...

The recent trial of Kermit Gosnell shows that these incidents continue to occur.

Fear gripped my heart as I ran into the delivery room, but instantly I knew the...

    Gianna Jessen is a devout Christian. Her life was given to her by the grace of God. She shouldn’t be walking, but more miraculous still; she should not even be alive. Gianna’s biological mother was 17 when she had a saline abortion in her third trimester. Many Americans don’t realize it is legal to have an abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. After being burned alive for approximately 18 hours in the womb from the saline solution, Gianna was delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic. Her medical records state, “born during saline abortion”…this is what caused...
