    Sarah Palin not anti-choice enough? A far right group claims the former Alaska governor's rhetoric on abortion sounds too "liberal" and "pro-choice" BY KATE HARDING In Salon today, Max Blumenthal writes of Sarah Palin, "her career has become a vehicle through which the right-wing evangelical movement feels it can express its deepest identity in opposition both to secular society and to its representatives in the Obama White House. Palin is perceived by its leaders -- and followers -- not as another cynical politician or even as a self-promoting celebrity, but as a kind of magical helper, the God-fearing glamour girl...

    Posted: October 31, 2009 By Chelsea Schilling © 2009 WorldNetDaily A pro-life movement seeking to guarantee basic human rights to unborn babies is exploding in 32 states – and leaders say it could be just the key to nullifying abortion provisions in President Obama's health-care "reform." While abortion was not specifically mentioned in earlier bills under consideration, H.R.3962, unveiled by Nancy Pelosi this week, does in fact state abortion is to be covered. Concerns are mounting that whatever the final form of the legislation, the procedure will become more accessible, requiring health insurance companies to fund abortions. Gualberto Garcia Jones...

    October 9, 2009, 9:10 PM Behind the Scenes: Picturing Fetal Remains By DAMIEN CAVE The photographs are graphic and detailed, showing the fingers or toes of aborted fetuses whose entire frames are no bigger than a cellphone. Since the mid-1990s, they have appeared all over the country — carried as posters by protesters, handed out with pamphlets or, in some cases, mounted like billboards on the sides of trucks. Like many others, I often wondered about the source of these images. Who took the pictures? Where did the fetuses come from? I had a chance to find some answers while...

    A new push to define 'person' and to outlaw abortion in the process Some abortion foes think the rationale for Roe vs. Wade is vulnerable. They're trying to amend state constitutions -- including California's -- to define personhood from conception. By Robin Abcarian September 28, 2009 It is one of the enduring questions of religion and science, and lately of American politics: When does a fertilized egg become a person? Abortion foes, tired of a profusion of laws that limit but do not abolish abortion, are trying to answer the question in a way that they hope could put an...

    Monday, May 25, 2009 It's not 'torture' – it's 'mercy' Exclusive: Andrew Longman says terrorists who deserve death are getting off easy Posted: May 23, 2009 1:00 am Eastern I get tired of hearing it. The media has a one-track story about "torture." Here it is. Republicans are mean old "torturers" and they "tortured." Obama is an exalted liberal who "vows" to "return us" to "our values" by "not torturing anymore." The storyline is evil, stupid and wrong. Here's the real story. Genocidal maniacs committed themselves to murdering as many American civilians as possible and were caught in the act...

    On Obama, blacks and Jews Exclusive: Alan Keyes likens prez's actions to murderous, utopian 20th century ideologies Posted: May 22, 2009 1:00 am Eastern By Alan Keyes The 20th century could well be called the century of Holocaust. I think it had something to do with the powerful assertion of godless self-sufficiency that characterized its most deadly and infamous ideologies. The communists, the fascists, the Nazis all have this in common: that they fancy themselves creators of new worlds of human possibility, willing servants of a fantasy in which the future, wrought by human hands, will advance beyond God's limited...

    By Beezy Marsh and Jo Macfarlane Last updated at 11:04 PM on 25th April 2009 Couples could be allowed to store embryos in order to use them to create new body parts or cure diseases. Government legal and ethical experts are to discuss whether families can ‘bank’ embryos not just for procreation but also for use by doctors to create personalised treatments for parents and their children. Now, embryos – the first stage of life after an egg has been successfully fertilised – can be stored for up to five years but only for procreation. But a huge ethical debate...

The West's moral and religious validity is measured, universally and in the eyes of the people, via whether, "orphans and old widows in their distress" are cared for. The Bible calls that "pure and faultless...

    Ann Coulter bushwacked on radio by conservative Christian abortion foes By WENDY NORRIS 3/30/09 9:08 AM Ultra-conservative Christian talk-radio hosts are taking a new approach to get their message out — ambushing right-wing pundit Ann Coulter for supporting 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Absolutist anti-abortion activists accuse Romney of being “willing to sacrifice children for your vote.” The Denver-based American Right to Life Action (RTL) leads the charge against Coulter with a YouTube video that shows excerpts of Coulter’s on-air radio freak-outs and calls on the acid-tongued author to apologize and retract her support for Romney.

ABORTION PRESENT: Group that fights breast cancer maintains troubling ties to Planned Parenthood | Alisa Harris Eve Sanchez Silver had her first abortion at age 16 and her second at age 21.
