    He is a veteran. He was thinking about committing suicide. But when he called the suicide hotline for veterans, he says he wasn’t helped — he was put on hold. Ted Koran experienced deep depression on Saturday night, so much so that he considered killing himself, the Florida Air Force veteran told WFTS-TV. “I was missing my wife,” he said of his life partner Karen, who died of cancer six months ago. In his pain, he turned to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- South Charleston Police are searching for a man they say is responsible for assaulting two people -- one who is mentally challenged. It happened about 6 a.m. Monday. Police say a man broke into the home of Tehrah Edwards. Edwards said the man is her ex-boyfriend. She said he held her and her new boyfriend, Sylvester Bates, against their will and beat them repeatedly. "He basically beat him to a pulp," Edwards said. "He punched me, had my daughter by the hair. He was like, 'oh you're lucky I didn't gut you like a fish.'...

    A group of middle school basketball players walked off the court in the middle of a game when they heard bullying coming from the stands directed at cheerleader, Desiree Andrews, who has Down syndrome. “One of the kids stepped up and said, ‘Don’t mess with her,’” Brandon Morris, who was the boys seventh-grade coach at Lincoln Middle School in Wisconsin, told Kenosha News. Eighth-graders Chase Vasquez, Miles Rodriguez and Scooter Terrien stormed off the court to confront the bully, who was giving Andrews a hard time. “We were mad; we didn’t like that,” Rodriguez told the paper. “We asked our...

    As I pulled into the parking lot at Los Alamitos Race Course on Friday morning, I thought about how light it was already, and how different that would be next week. With daylight saving time starting on Sunday morning, sunrise will be an hour later, making photography more challenging. But on this morning there was plenty of light and a solid contingent of regulars gathered inside the track kitchen, chatting and laughing as I walked in. I quickly caught up with trainer Art Sherman, who asked about my progress in packing for my move to Georgia and the arrival of...

    [JURIST] The West Virginia Legislature [official website] on Friday overrode the governor's veto, passing a bill [text, HB 2586] banning abortion after 20 weeks. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin [official website] said he vetoed the law because of concerns over its constitutionality and would have preferred a later gestational period for banning abortion. The bill excludes [AP report] certain cases of medical emergencies and is set to take effect in May. West Virginia is now the 11th state to ban abortion after 20 weeks. The legislation is based on the premise that fetuses can feel pain starting around 20 weeks, a...

"I am proudly pro-life" the governor told a rally of members of the anti-abortion Center for Arizona Policy. "And I look forward to working with you on those issues."

    Abortion clinics operate every day in the United States, suctioning and tearing preborn babies out of their mother’s wombs. What happens to the bodies of aborted babies after they are killed? Ideally, the remains of aborted babies are sent to a lab. They are then examined to make sure there are no serious medical problems that the woman should be made aware of. In very early abortions, the tiny embryo’s remains can be difficult to identify. Often, it takes careful examination by a pathologist to make sure all parts of the baby and placenta have been removed. A thorough examination...

    Why? Because 23 Planned Parenthood clinics in the state don't even have mammogram equipment. Yet they collect taxpayers' money just for the referrals. "So our solution obviously for this specific program is pretty easy," says the pro-lifer. "When we get Planned Parenthood out of the program, more money will go to those clinics that actually do a proper scan to make sure that any woman who does have breast cancer can get the answers soon, and can go and be treated by an actual healthcare provider."

    CONCORD, New Hampshire — Penalties for indecent exposure and the legality of abortions are on tap for the New Hampshire House. Lawmakers are scheduled to debate these and several other issues during Wednesday's legislative session, beginning at 10 a.m. A committee recommends passing a bill that would make indecent exposure or lewdness in front of a minor a felony rather than a misdemeanor. By a vote of 10-4, the House Judiciary Committee recommends killing a bill "providing life begins at conception," which would outlaw abortion. Several bills aimed at limiting access to abortions are before the House this session.

    After days of debates lasting hours on the House of Delegates floor, West Virginia lawmakers passed a bill that would limit abortions in the state. On Wednesday House Bill 2368 passed by an overwhelming majority, 87-12, with both republicans and democrats voting in favor of it. The bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks, granting exemptions if a mother's life was in danger or the fetus was not medically viable. Doctors who would perform an abortion after this time would be at risk of losing their medical licenses. “Truly what we are talking about is just ensuring that a child,...

    A West Virginia woman arrested in a bizarre home invasion Sunday night is also accused of murdering a 69-year-old pastor over the weekend, police said. Camille Brown, 19, was charged Monday with first-degree murder. She was already jailed for breaking and entering and disorderly conduct, said Beckley police Detective Morgan Bragg. He said Brown lived about a half-mile away from the home of victim Ronald Browning, a hospital chaplain, but did not know him. "I would have to say this is one of the most disturbing cases I've seen," Bragg told NBC News. "We've yet to determine a true logical...

    Alveda King is the niece of late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and she is also actively pro-life. The younger King was at the March for Life in Washington D.C. in January for pro-life events and, there, members of the radical pro-abortion group Stop Patriarchy hurled racist and sexist insults at her as she led a one-woman, non-violent protest against their antics. Wearing white pants splattered with fake blood, a few dozen members of the group gathered in front of the Supreme Court, harassing marchers and trying to tear down the signs that were set up for the...

    In November 2010, a baby girl was born “pregnant” with twins growing inside her in Hong Kong. The deceased unborn babies were between eight and ten weeks gestation, had legs, arms, a spine, rib cage, primitive brain tissue and intestines. According to the Mirror Online, both were covered in skin; and one weighed half an ounce and the other a third of an ounce – and each had an umbilical cord. The doctors first discovered the rare phenomenon in the baby girl during an ultrasound of the mother. Then, after the girl was born, tests determined the infant had the...

    FULL TITLE: On Losing Streak in Courts, Obama Administration Goes After Nuns’ TV Network with Abortion Drugs Mandate ATLANTA — In the latest federal court case impacting abortion policy, last Wednesday the voice of the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) was finally heard as they presented oral arguments against the Obama Administration at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. The face of the Obamacare juggernaut, HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell, is set on enforcing the highly-contested contraceptive services provision, which mandates coverage of abortion-inducing drugs — despite the federal government racking up a series of recent Supreme Court losses on...

    A bill has been introduced into the U.S. House by a Wisconsin Congressman which would stop abortion providers from “unbundling” abortion services so they can submit separate claims to Medicaid. U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) said that he introduced the ‘‘Medicaid Abortion Funding Prohibition Accountability Act“ to target Medicaid providers who improperly submit reimbursement claims to pay for abortions, and related services. “These companies submit separate claims for abortion related procedures in order to receive increased Medicaid reimbursements. It is a process known as “unbundling” and is in violation of federal law,” Rep. Duffy said in his press release. “All...

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Planned Parenthood is suggesting New Hampshire lawmakers replace the state law creating “buffer zones” around facilities that provide abortions rather than repeal it. New Hampshire’s 25-foot buffer zone law has not been enforced since its passage last summer because of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down a similar Massachusetts law. The House Judiciary Committee took testimony Tuesday on a bill to repeal the buffer zone law outright. Its sponsors say the state will face a costly lawsuit if the law remains in place.

    Since the passage of the Pro-Life Omnibus Bill (HB 2) in 2013, anti-Life advocates have sought to make abortion more accessible in Texas. Cicada Collective is one such group, describing itself as “a queer and trans* people of color centered organization” with the mission of “providing practical abortion support.” This “support” encompasses acting as an “abortion doula.” Doulas transport pregnant mothers and their unborn children to abortion appointments, give the mothers lodging during the ordeal, and remain with them before, during, and after the abortion. The initiative began shortly before the historic passage of HB 2, and hosted a full...

"It's not just ironic that America's largest abortion provider is receiving funding to prevent infant mortality, it's actually very disturbing," Right...

    Author Sue Hertz interviewed clinic workers and observed antiabortion activity at a busy abortion clinic. Her book was written during the height of the Operation Rescue clinic blockades, and the book focuses mainly on the drama outside the clinic rather than inside. However, Hertz did find the time to observe several abortions and describe how clinic workers reacted to seeing the bodies of aborted babies. Hertz describes how a clinic worker named Doris coped with being in the operating room while the abortionist did a dismemberment abortion. Doris looked away as the doctor extracted a woman’s preborn child piece by...

    In January, Professor Jan Narveson and I debated whether libertarians should support abortion. Narveson claimed abortion only involves a mother’s right not to have a child, while I argued abortion violates the non-aggression principle (NAP) by killing babies. In his response to my argument, Narveson claims embryos, whom science defines as preborn babies during their first eight weeks of development, are not “people.” Narveson suggests the reason is the abilities to think, desire, exercise one’s will, dream, etc. (hereinafter “think, etc.”) are not “within the reach of … embryos.” Narveson concludes that, accordingly, the NAP does not apply to abortion...

    AUSTIN — The fight over the death of Marlise Muñoz, the pregnant and brain-dead North Texas woman who was left on life support for two months, appears likely to begin again soon at the Capitol. A Fort Worth lawmaker is pushing a new state law that would provide representation for fetuses in court hearings — an idea that Muñoz’s family opposes. A blood clot caused Muñoz, 33, to collapse at her Haltom City home in November 2013. Two scans taken at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth revealed that she was brain-dead. Her family immediately asked the hospital to...

The 30-second and 60-second spots paid for by the pro-life Chiaroscuro Group quote what the organization claims are scathing reviews culled from social-media Web sites and penned by horrified patients who visited some of the clinics. A sample of the reviews: “Avoid at all costs”; “The Waiting Room is dirty and smelled of dried urine”; “DO NOT EVER GO HERE”; “Filthy Medical Equipment looks like it’s from the 1970s”;...

    SANTA FE (KRQE) – It doesn’t seem like that long ago that Albuquerque became the center of the national abortion debate. Now, New Mexico itself is set to be front and center. On Friday, lawmakers announced a new bill to ban late term abortions in a state with one of the only known late-term abortion clinics in the nation. The bill would ban abortions after five months and once the fetus is capable of living outside the womb. Unlike the failed November 2013 measure in Albuquerque, the bill provides exceptions for rape, abuse, incest, and when the mother’s life is...

    Former abortion clinic worker Carol Everett wrote a book about her time in the abortion industry. In this passage, she is describing a D&E (dismemberment) abortion performed in her clinic. The abortionist has already pulled off the torso, arms and legs of the child and removed them from the woman’s body. Dr. Johnson handed the suction tube back to Leslie [another clinic worker] and once again used forceps to probe for the [baby’s] head. I saw the muscles of his right arm tighten and knew what that meant: He had located the head and was crushing it. Harvey used to...

    The following quotes are taken from Live Action’s Inhuman Investigation, where late-term abortionists were discovered agreeing to not resuscitate babies who might be born alive after an abortion. 1) “So it’s like putting meat in a Crock-pot, OK, it doesn’t get, it doesn’t get broke, but it just gets softer…” (Leroy Carhart) In this horrifying statement, late-term abortionist Carhart was describing what happens to a baby’s body after poison has been injected into her heart. She dies inside her mother’s womb and stays there for days, waiting to be born, dead. Basically, the preborn, well-developed baby begins the first stages...

    This is from a brochure by Priests for Life’s Father Frank Pavone that can be found here. Priests for Life has been kind enough to allow me to republish material from their site. The pictures of unborn babies throughout are my addition. All of the babies pictured could be legally aborted in at least one US state. Most people admit that abortion is wrong; surveys show, in fact, that half of all Americans are willing to call it “murder.” (See, for example, the January 1998 New York Times/CBS News Poll.) Yet a disturbing number of these same people will not...

    “I perform abortions‬ because of my religious belief. I would feel I wasn’t living up to my Christian responsibility if I saw the need to not offer an answer to that need. We have a saying among Presbyterians that God alone is Lord of the conscience.” Abortionist James Armstrong, in the 1990′s film Whose Choice?

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - A central Ohio pro-life group is seeking restitution after a man damaged its signs at a demonstration. The attack on the signs happened Wednesday afternoon outside Beechcroft High School as school was letting out for the day. A group called Created Equal was staging a demonstration with signs displaying graphic images of aborted fetuses. The group members were on the sidewalk in front of the school when a man who lives across the street approached them. “Get them off or I'll take them,” the man could be heard yelling on video shot by Created Equal. The video...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Women in Missouri could be required to watch an informational video produced by the Department of Health and Senior services prior to having an abortion under a bill passed out of a House committee Tuesday. Missouri has an “informed consent” law that requires physicians to present details of the procedure in written form. State Representative Linda Black says her bill would ‘enhance’ that. “It would be a mere image of the printed form, but only in a narrative documentary form,” said Black. Black says her bill would help those who are illiterate or do not learn...

    A widely supported bill to let Washington State University open a medical school in Spokane hit a snag when a Seattle lawmaker asked the school to promise that it would not limit teaching on reproductive health or end-of-life care because of its partnerships with religious hospitals. House Bill 1559 was scheduled to be voted out of the House Higher Education Committee on Friday, but the vote was delayed after Rep. Gerry Pollet, D-Seattle, pushed that amendment, the Seattle Times reported. WSU supporters say they have no intention of restricting medical education. But they say Pollet's amendment has no place in...

    NEW YORK, January 6 (C-Fam) A group of U.S. senators is urging President Obama to fund the UN’s controversial population agency despite its ties to abortion and coercive population control programs, and its new push for countries to legalize prostitution. “We are disappointed that despite UNFPA’s critical work around the world, a number of misperceptions about the organization persist,” wrote Senator Barbara Boxer and 21 of her Democratic colleagues. “UNFPA does not promote abortion as a method of family planning and does not condone coercion in family planning, coercive abortion or forced sterilizations,” according to the senators, each an ardent...

    According to New Mexico 2013 state population estimates, 46.4% of New Mexicans were Hispanic, and 41.3 % were White, so why do Hispanic women account for the majority of abortions in the state? Hispanics in New Mexico In New Mexico, reporting of legal induced abortion became law in 1977, and 1978 was the first full year of reporting. The number of abortions reported in New Mexico in 2013 was 3,408. This is an 8.7% increase from the 2012 number. In 2013, 67.6% of abortions in New Mexico were to women who were less than nine weeks pregnant and 86.0% of...

    Last week, a professor at the University of California in Santa Barbara allegedly assaulted a pro-life activist and stole her and her sister's signs containing graphic images of abortion. The picture above shows the professor, Dr. Mireille Miller-Young, accompanied by two other students who helped her carry the signs away. While almost everyone thinks people should have the right to publicly display images of abortion (except for pro-abortion activists like this professor who say it's “visual terrorism”), many people, including pro-life advocates, are divided over whether it is prudent or even morally right to publicly display such images. In this...

    WEST WYOMING — In a voice soft with contrition, Father Leo McKernan confessed. “Poor judgment on my part,” he said when we spoke on the phone. Now the good people of the parish of St. Monica must decide whether to forgive this man known for his rabid anti-abortion views and dedication to what the church calls “pro-life.” The Roman Catholic priest from the Diocese of Scranton admitted he was wrong to approve the showing of a 14-minute “movie” to a religious instruction class of 11-year-olds, sixth-grade innocents who will shape the soul of the Church for generations to come.
