    What connects this to the abortion issue is what NBC News’ chief medical editor, Dr. Nancy Snyderman (pictured below right), said we could learn from this tragedy on the August 29 Today show: SNYDERMAN: The really important thing here is that every time you think you’re going to have a procedure, no matter how minor, you have to constantly remind yourself that although these things are rare, they can happen. And one more thing I should say, make sure your doctor has admitting privileges to the local hospital, because in this case it may well have saved Joan Rivers’ life.”...

    During the last week of May abortion proponent Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traversed southern Texas and upper Mexico to film footage for an upcoming documentary, Trapped. Trapped will “look at the impact of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws in the southern United States, and their disproportionate effect on women living in poverty.” There are currently no abortion clinics in the Rio Grande Valley, which borders Mexico. The nearest one in the U.S. is 230 miles north in San Antonio. The group filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer...

    Following the death of a young elementary school teacher, Jennifer Morbelli, I had the sad duty of speaking at a press conference in Germantown, MD, in February 2013. Mrs. Morbelli died from complications from a late term (33 week) abortion performed by Dr. LeRoy Carhart. She experienced complications in between office visits, but neither her family nor the ER to which she was eventually admitted was able to locate Carhart. Her cause of death was determined to be an amniotic fluid embolism; the same condition that killed Christin Gilbert, another of Carhart’s patients in 2005. Maryland, does not have a...

    Judge Myron Thompson issued a 172-page opinion this morning ruling that the Alabama law that requires abortionists to maintain local hospital privileges in unconstitutional.Thompson said that the rule created an “undue burden” on women seeking abortions, because that law would force three out of five abortion facilities in that state to close because abortionists at those facilities are unqualified to receive hospital privileges.“Following Thompson’s flawed logic, he would rather keep open an abortion facility open – even if it was the likes of Kermit Gosnell and his filthy ‘House of Horrors’ – than close an abortion facility, no matter how...

    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.

    Two obituaries published this weekend show how little progress America has made on abortion in the last several decades. The death of actor James Garner saddened fans across the country. Born James Scott Bumgarner, the 86-year-old Rockford Files star overcame mental and physical abuse from his stepmother – who would regularly beat him with whatever was handy and force him to wear dresses as a form of emasculation – to become one of the most beloved stars of his day. In his autobiography, The Garner Files, he revealed that he had no memory of his birth mother, who died when...

    According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 2009 the median cost of a first-trimester abortion was just under $500. Add the bus travel or gas and up to three nights in a hotel, and the cost can jump by several hundred dollars. That’s the impetus behind Clinic Action Support Network, which was founded last summer in response to the new law, and aims to help Houston-area women clear the growing hurdles to abortion access. But regulations and requirements like those in HB2 are not limited to Texas. Twenty-seven states have passed abortion regulations…. The trend has given rise to networks like...

    A sweeping bill that could eliminate many commonsense state laws protecting women from the harms of abortion was considered in a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday. “Imagine the vast majority of pro-life laws wiped out with the enactment of a single piece of federal legislation. That is the purpose behind S. 1696,” summarizes Bill Saunders of Americans United for Life. The misleadingly named “Women’s Health Protection Act,” S. 1696, sponsored by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., would do just the opposite of its euphemistic title. Effectively, it would strip states of the ability to protect the health and safety of women...

    It’s election year once again, and, with the general election in Texas fast approaching, things are about to heat up, especially the governor’s race between Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Wendy Davis. Abbott is currently enjoying huge leads in the polls. Despite massive amounts of money being poured into Davis’ campaign, primarily from out of state and including Chicago socialists, a series of missteps (or lies) and the dismissal of her campaign by the Democratic Governor’s Associations appear to have doomed her campaign into becoming a blip that will soon be recorded history. However, there was a time in Fall...

    Sixteen minutes into last week's botched lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary, the warden closed the blinds on the windows to the execution chamber and turned off the sound so that witnesses could not see Clayton Lockett writhe or hear him moan. The procedure, designed to resemble a medical treatment -- albeit one with an involuntary patient and a very low probability of recovery -- had begun to look uncomfortably like the cold-blooded killing of a helpless person. Since Lockett himself was guilty of such a killing, having been convicted of shooting a 19-year-old woman during a burglary and...

    The recent and ghastly botched execution of a man in Oklahoma has rekindled my thoughts on capital punishment -- a practice outlawed in most civilized countries. Indeed, most of the industrialized world looks with horror on the United States, in this regard, as a primitive and backward country. Just in passing fact, capital punishment was banned in the Netherlands in 1870, in Costa Rica in 1877, in Colombia in 1910. In allowing the death penalty, the United States stands with Libya, Uganda, Cuba, Egypt and Equatorial Guinea, among our other peers. It's a sad commentary on justice in this country...

The execution began at 6:23pm when officials began administering the first drug, and a doctor declared Clayton Lockett to be unconscious at 6:33pm. About three minutes later, though, Lockett began breathing heavily, writhing on the gurney, clenching his teeth, and straining to lift his head off the pillow. After about three minutes, a doctor lifted the sheet that was covering Lockett to examine the injection site "and the...

    Remember Kermit Gosnell? The main reason that the serial killer managed to elude detection for so long was that the state of Pennsylvania didn’t bother to inspect his facility for seventeen years, even though state law required it — and even though previous inspections showed significant causes for concern. The grand jury report specifically blamed politics in Pennsylvania for a lack of action. Had federal investigators not started probing Gosnell for his illegal trade in drugs, he’d still be cheerfully murdering babies that survived abortions and a few of their mothers, too.One might think that other states would have learned...

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...

    When investigators entered Dr. Kermit Gosnell's office last week, they probably expected to see some sick things - it IS an abortion mill, after all. What they found was FAR worse than anyone could have expected, and Gosnell's past has some horrifying clues about the type of "healthcare" provided by the good doctor. Is it any surprise that many abortionists routinely mistreat, abuse, and injur More..e their patients - at least the ones they don't kill. Perhaps the most shocking fact is that the people who perform these procedures are still allowed to call themselves doctors.

    Were it not for double standards, the gummint would have no standards at all. As you probably have heard by now, President and CEO of Toyota Corp., Akio Toyoda was dragged before Congress this week to explain why his company did not do more to address critical safety issues with their vehicles that resulted in several deaths. Vehicle safety is surely an important issue and we expect companies, when they become aware of these issues, to deal with them promptly and effectively. Lives depend on it. It was in this context that Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) addressed Mr Toyoda saying......

    Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) -- Since his shooting death last weekend, the mainstream media and abortion advocates have gone out of their way to paint late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller as a champion of women. However, their portrayal of Tiller neglects any mention of the women he killed or injured in botched abortions.While hundreds of pro-life groups have forcefully condemned alleged gunman Scott Roeder for killing Tiller, and, while his record presents no reason for his death, Tiller was anything but a protector of women's health.Perhaps the biggest blunder in Tiller's career of doing legal, and supposedly safe, abortions was the...

    Despite a decade of promises, little has been done to fix the problem of preventable medical errors that kill nearly 98,000 people in the United States each year, a consumer group said on Tuesday. Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports magazine, said lawmakers largely have failed to enact patient safety reforms recommended by a 1999 report by the Institute of Medicine or IOM that found that medical errors cost the United States $17 billion to $29 billion a year.

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A new report recently highlighted at LifeNews.com indicates Planned Parenthood is increasingly relying on the dangerous mifepristone (RU 486) abortion drug.

    Planned Parenthood, First Avenue and Grape Street, San Diego, Saturday, March 7, 2009 Planned Parenthood at First Avenue and Grape Street near downtown San Diego started telling customers last Saturday, February 28, they would not be allowed in if they had leaflets given them by "the protestors." Surprisingly, this did not stop nearly the same number of potential clients getting the "Danger" pamphlet on Saturday, March 7. Most clients seemed willing to roll down their windows as they were turning into the clinic's driveway and accept information about the clinic. By 8 a.m., nearly 10 customers coming in the driveway...

    On Tuesday, January 13th, RFFM.org detailed the history of Illinois' Parental Notification Law (see: Illinois' Parental Notification of Abortion Act: Thomas More Society's Long Battle for Law's Enforcement: http://rffm.typepad.com/republicans_for_fair_medi/2009/01/illinois-parental-notification-of-abortion-act-thomas-more-societys-long-battle-for-laws-enforcement.html).

    Sacramento, Aug 11, 2008 / 11:04 pm (CNA).- A California judge has ruled against Planned Parenthood and its allies who challenged the content of a voter information pamphlet’s arguments in support of Proposition 4, a ballot measure requiring abortionists to notify at least one adult relative before performing an abortion on a minor. The arguments reference the story of “Sarah,” a 15-year-old who died in 1994 after suffering complications from a secretly obtained legal abortion, in addition to stories of other underage girls who obtained abortions without their parents’ knowledge.Opponents of the pamphlet’s content argued that Sarah’s story should...

    A CNN reporter interviewing me a couple weeks ago about Barack Obama's opposition as state senator to the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act groaned more than once that this topic was "complicated."She was referring to Obama's various explanations through the years for blocking Born Alive and lately his outright denial that obstructing legislation declaring live aborted babies legal persons had anything to do with endorsing their death.I finally emailed her, "It is clear: Obama strongly opposed legislation to protect abortion survivors. This is horrible, so of course he will try to make it 'complicated,' but it is not."Obama...

    Botched abortions mean that scores of babies are being born alive and left to die, an official report has revealed. A total of 66 infants survived NHS termination attempts in one year alone, it emerged. Rather than dying at birth as was intended, they were able to breathe unaided. About half were alive for an hour, while one survived ten hours. The figures are the first to give a national picture of the number of babies who survive abortion but are left to die. Experts previously believed the phenomenon was limited to a handful of cases a year. The babies...
